MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY-"INTERSTELLAR"

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's expected to be one of the top movies of the year. And with "Interstellar" soon hitting theaters, we'll see whether the predictions will come true. The movie is set in the near future -- after Earth has been hit with a blight that wipes out most of its food sources. Enter Matthew McConaughey -- or at least his character. He plays a widowed pilot who is asked to leave his children behind to head out on a space mission to find out if there are any other planets where humans can thrive. McConaughey says he didn't quite grasp the science behind the movie. He says it took him more than five hours to get through his first read of the script. Even then, he had questions for director Christopher Nolan and the astrophysicist who was helping with the production. The movie opens next week.

Matthew McConaughey says it took some time to get his head around the script for "Interstellar," even with the help of director Christopher Nolan. ((longer version of cut in wrap))

NICOLE KIDMAN-SHEEPISH

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Nicole Kidman can pretty much get whatever kind of part she wants these days. But that wasn't the case when she was 5 -- and she missed out on a coveted role. She says she wanted to play Mary or maybe an angel in her school's nativity play. But she ended up cast as a sheep. She says she still remembers her costume: one of those fleece-looking car seats cover converted into an outfit by her mom. She says playing a sheep wasn't her finest moment as an actress, but she "felt amazing." She says she "bleated through the whole play" and even got a laugh -- and she was hooked. Kidman stars in "Before I Go To Sleep" a movie about a woman whose memory is wiped clean every night.

ALLMAN MOVIE-LAWSUIT

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Gregg Allman is no longer involved in a lawsuit filed by the family of a movie crew worker killed by a train during the shooting of a movie about the musician. Lawyers for the parents of Sarah Jones say they have decided to dismiss all claims against Allman and two other parties. The decision was made after going over thousands of documents and other evidence in the case. The attorney says it's clear Allman "had no involvement" in any of the decisions that led to Jones' death. Allman was an executive producer of the movie based on his life story -- but has moved to distance himself from the project since the crew member's death. Members of the crew were struck by a freight train as they worked on a rail bridge. CSX says it denied the film crew access to the area.

CHRIS BROWN-SETTLEMENT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Chris Brown has settled a lawsuit stemming from his punching a man outside a Washington D.C. hotel a year ago. The lawyer for the man who suffered a broken nose in the incident says his client and Brown have reached a deal on a lawsuit. No details on how much the settlement was worth. Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault on Sept. 2. The singer admitted hitting Parker Adams, who tried to get in a picture the singer was taking with two women outside the W hotel in October 2013. Brown was sentenced to time served.

"TINY" HARRIS-EYES

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some people are criticizing reality TV star Tiny Harris -- for failing to keep it real when it comes to her eyes. She's drawing fire from social media haters and some eye doctors over a procedure she underwent to have her eyes permanently lightened. They were once brown; now they're ice gray. Harris is thrilled with the results, telling ABC she had the cosmetic eye implants done in Africa. She says of her new eyes: "they're amazing." Some medical pros aren't so impressed. New York ophthalmologist James Tsai says such cosmetic procedures are illegal in the U.S. And he says those who have the procedure run the risk of getting glaucoma, cataracts, bleeding in the eyes -- or problems with their corneas.

"THE VIEW"-NEWS

NEW YORK (AP) -- It was a tug-of-war between two divisions within ABC -- entertainment and news. "The View" will now come under the command and control of ABC News. The move ends an 18-year run with the daytime chat-fest being under the network's entertainment wing. It may prove to be a hollow victory. The show's ratings have dropped since shifting to a new set of hosts going into this season. The current panel is made up of Rosie O'Donnell, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez -- and the lone holdover from the glory days, Whoopi Goldberg.

"GAME OF THRONES"-SUSPENSION

PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) -- "Game of Thrones" is a popular TV series. But a slogan from the HBO show wasn't as well received when it ended up posted online by a New Jersey professor. Francis Schmidt teaches art and animation at Bergen County Community College. He says he was suspended eight days after posting a photo of his 7-year-old daughter wearing a T-shirt with the slogan: "I will take what is mine with fire and blood." Now school officials have overturned the punishment, saying the suspension may have violated his constitutional rights. Schmidt said that school officials wondered if the reference was a threat against a dean, who was one of the people who saw the online post.

JORGE GARCIA-COSTUME

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- If you see a rather large fellow decked out in an Elvis costume today, take a close look -- you might have seen him on TV. Jorge Garcia says he has forked over $3,700 on a "Dragon" jumpsuit, styled after the kind Elvis Presley used to wear. It's white with colorful dragons stitched into the front and back. Garcia says he always wanted to have one -- and now that he has made good money from "Lost" and "Hawaii Five-O," he decided to splurge.
