Vin Diesel, Alec Baldwin and Bill Clinton in the bright extra large pay day glow of The Foxlight.

Vin Diesel is very ready for his close up. He showed up for a Today show appearance with an entourage. There were 10 people with him including, not one, but two, personal publicists. I guess there would have been 11 people but he doesn't need anyone for hair.

A Today show staffer said she thought the president was coming when all those people showed up. Diesel has signed with the same PR film that represents Hollywood heavyweight Tom Cruise and he reportedly told a publicist there he wants "all of the same covers as Tom Cruise."

Alec Baldwin's first move when he takes over the center square on Hollywood Squares? He says he's taking all the writers out for the best meal they've ever had. That way, he reasons, they'll give him all the best lines. What? You thought that show was adlibbed? Sorry, completely scripted. Much of it from left of center square Bruce Vilanch.

Finally, Bill Clinton really might get an afternoon talk show on CBS for $50 million a year? And it might include a band? Who's going to play the saxophone? Arsenio?
