Chatting with Billy V: September 24, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Actress Portia de Rossi is now officially Mrs. DeGeneres. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Thursday granted the former Arrested Development star the right to change her name from de Rossi to DeGeneres after her spouse, Ellen DeGeneres. The name change petition states that de Rossi's new full name is now Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

Sources say two actresses are testing for parts in the next Spider-Man film. They are Emma Stone (Zombieland, Easy A) as the red-headed Mary Jane Watson, and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) as Gwen Stacy.

Kate Beckinsale is returning to the world of vampires and werewolves, closing a deal to reprise her role as vampire heroine Selene in the fourth installment of the Underworld movie series.
