A local politics blog says Dunham is registered to vote in Brooklyn but didn't in 2012
Lena Dunham didn't vote in the 2012 elections despite making a widely-discussed video for the Obama campaign, according to New York politics blog Room 8.
"Further, in a Gatemouth exclusive, I can now report that according to New York City's voter file, a Lena Dunham registered in registered in Brooklyn did not vote in the 2012 general election or in any local elections since she moved from her prior address in Tribeca," writes blogger Gatemouth.
Dunham did vote in 2008, but not in 2004.
A representative for Dunham didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lindsay Lohan attends the amfAR (The Foundation for AIDS Research) gala that kicks off the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week February 6, 2013 in New York.
“Xena: Warrior Princess” actor Lucy Lawless says she’s won a “great victory” after a New Zealand judge handed her a modest sentence but declined to order costs sought by oil company Shell for her role in a protest aboard an oil-drilling ship.
Lawless and seven other Greenpeace activists were each ordered Thursday to pay 651 New Zealand dollars ($547) costs to a port company and complete 120 hours of community service after earlier pleading guilty to trespass charges.
Last February, Lawless and six other activists climbed a drilling tower on the Arctic-bound vessel Noble Discoverer to protest oil exploration in the Arctic. Another protester helped from the ground. Lawless spent four days atop the 174-foot (53-meter) tower, camping and blogging about her experiences. The action briefly delayed the ship’s voyage.
Shell Todd Oil Services, which had chartered the ship, sought about 650,000 New Zealand dollars ($545,000) in reparations from the protesters.
Lawyers for the activists contended that amount was excessive. In his ruling, Judge Allan Roberts said the company could pursue its claim through the civil court system.
Shell Todd declined to comment on whether it would pursue civil action. In a statement, the company said it has “always supported the efforts of law enforcement to respond to this incident and to deter such activity in the future.”
Lawless is best known for her title role in “Xena” and more recently for starring in the Starz cable television series “Spartacus.”
“I consider it a great victory that the court has struck down the reparation demand from Shell, which I think was absolutely ludicrous,” Lawless said.
She said she was happy to clean toilets, pick up litter or do whatever else was required for her community service and that she has no regrets about taking part in the protest, which she said has helped highlight concerns about oil exploration in the Arctic.
Greenpeace says more than 2 million people have signed its petition to make the Arctic a sanctuary and off-limits for oil exploration.
Lawless said she plans to continue protesting against climate change and oil drilling.
It’s a boy for Cam Gigandet and his fiancée Dominique Geisendorff!
The Twilight star shared the news on Facebook tonight, writing, “We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few days at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do. Dominique gave birth to our second Child son Rekker Radley Gigandet on 1/ 23/ 2013. He is Healthy, Happy, and Perfect.”
Baby Rekker joins big sister Everleigh Ray, 3.
It's the series that refuses to die and has become a cult smash saved from cancellation once before: Jericho. After a return and cancellation once more on CBS, you would think that would have been it for the riveting drama. But after multiple years off air and gaining popularity through the internet, word surfaced last Spring that the little show that could might be back for Round 3 thanks to Netflix. Since then, however, nothing has surfaced and talks were previously thought to be dead. But now, it's been revealed that after all this time there is still hope as discussions are still very much ongoing.
Promoting the Blu-Ray and DVD release of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, of which he wrote and directed along with penning the original novel, Nerdacy (via Screenrant) asked creator Stephen Chbosky whether or not the talks regarding Jericho are true and if there is any update.
Chbosky confirmed that talks are still happening and said, "You know WME (William Morris Endeavor) Agency, who represents me, Jon Turteltaub and many other people, and they’ve been talking to Netflix and you never know. I can’t say what it will be in season 3, but I’m excited for the new developments."
Jericho tells the tale of a small Kansas town that are isolated following the nuclear aftermath of 23 major cities around the United States of America. Jake Green originally returned to claim his inheritance from his father, the Mayor of Jericho, but steps up as a leader following the apocalyptic conditions. As tensions grow high, the isolation begins to dissolve as the western U.S. reforms itself into the Allied States of America while the two season series ends with the nation on the brink of a Second Civil War.
Following the series cancellation, the show continued in comic books form with a third season series in 2011 penned by part of the show's writing staff. A fourth season kicked off in the same regard began in August of last year but so far only one issue has been released and its current future remains unclear.
Exactly whether or not these negotiations will amount to anything has yet to be determined. Discussions have been underway for eight months now and no developments have surfaced since. They've dropped out of various series revivals before, including last year's The River, though Jericho is a cult hit who's cast is currently pretty much available. While a less than confident answer from Chbosky doesn't do wonders, it's at least a brief update for the time being.
Pretty stoked in Netflix's platform to bring back old faves and create new programming, tbh. Also, Jericho was one of my faves. I'd love to see it return.
NBC has permanently suppressed Dr. Cole’s evil alter ego.
The network has pulled the plug on its Jekyll-and-Hyde-esque medical thriller 'Do No Harm' after just two anemically rated episodes.
The freshman drama’s Jan. 31 debut garnered 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, making it the lowest-rated, in-season debut of any scripted Big 4 series ever. This week’s second installment fared worse, dropping to a 0.7 demo rating.
Do No Harm wrapped production on its initial 13-episode order last month; it’s unclear if the 11 remaining episodes will see the light of day.
Encores of Law & Order: SVU will fill the Thursday-at-10 void for the next several weeks. Bryan Fuller’s anticipated Hannibal likely will take over the slot on March 14.
NBC, you are a mess.
The actual movie posters for this year's Best Picture nominees have nothing on these. The Academy teamed up with Gallery1988 (which we've written about before) to commission artists to create screen prints inspired by the top films. The final products are beautiful and evocative of the themes and moods of the movies they represent. While we like them all, we're partial to the haunting, reflective take on Beasts of the Southern Wild. You can learn more about the artists here.

When he's not busy cancelling the apocalypse with Guillermo Del Toro or playing London's most unhinged detective as Luther, Idris Elba can be found in north London indulging in another of his passions: DJing. Hackney's most bankable export is currently the star attraction at Love and Liquor in Kilburn playing every Friday night until mid March. We grabbed a few minutes with the man pre-set to discuss his essential roots reggae album, directing Mumford and Sons and his cocktail of choice.
GQ: How does it feel to be on the cover of GQ?
Idris Elba: I mean, GQ! Come on man! Not to sound like a fan but to be on the front cover is a f*****g goal in the 90th minute, you know what I mean? It's like having a bust left foot, a broken right foot, getting dragged out of the penalty box and still scoring. That's how big that moment is for me.
Why have you come back to DJing?
Not "back to DJing". I've always been DJing, it's just I'm making more of a push for it, making it more public. I'm at a massive crossroads at the moment. Whether it's music or acting, that creativity all comes from the same source. It's a bit like if you work out your arms or your abs too much, your legs get skinny. You need to exercise them all at the same time. As wanky as that sounds, I have always kept music as a bit of a stepchild so I thought "F**k it, I'm going to enjoy it". My ambition for it has already been fulfilled so I'm doing it because I love to do it.
What is an album every man should own?
The one album I can't live without is called Cumbolo by a band called Culture. Every song on their album is deep, but there's one in particular called "This Train". I have a tattoo of the lyrics on my left arm.
You starred in a Mumford and Sons video. What was that like?
I really enjoyed working with them. They gave me a great opportunity as I directed that video and I was also in it, but it was like a massive creativity splurge. My friend Dan Cadan - he's a director who worked on a lot of Guy Ritchie's early films - helped me to craft that video. We were in the wilds of Wales with a couple of cameras, a few sheep, a couple of deer and a dog. Infact, in the original director's cut of the video there's a close-up shot of the dog collar with the word Rambo written on it. I sent the first video Mumford & Sons and one band member - who shall remain nameless - asked me to take that shot out. I'd put it in there as I'd been round his house and seen it was the name of his dog. Sadly it's a moment no one will ever see as I have the only copy.
What do you like to drink when you go out clubbing?
It's a drink I created called a 7 Wallace - Tanqueray gin, a splash of tonic, a splash of cranberry and a good squeeze of lime. It's named after the address I used to live at and also the name of the club night I DJ at here.
Have you picked up any styling tips from the characters you've played?
In Pacific Rim I had to have a haircut I wouldn't usually rock. However, the moustache I had in the film - that might have to come out again. It was a good moustache. Good times.
What's the best advice you've ever been given?
Don't take anyone else's advice!
The March 2013 issue of British GQ is out on 7 February.
Idris will be playing 7 Wallace every Friday until 15 March (excluding 15 February) at Love and Liquor, 34 Kilburn High Road, London, NW6 5UA. (OMG, SO CLOSE.)
I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend

10:40 A.M. PST: Selena's rep just told TMZ ... Selena let the fans in her SUV because they wanted to get her autograph and possibly a few pics and the scene was too chaotic curbside. The rep says the fans got out of the SUV 2 terminals down.
Selena Gomez pulled an incredibly DANGEROUS move at LAX yesterday, appearing to let 3 random fans into her private SUV ... but it seems the whole thing was a stupid set up.
The girls claimed to be die-hard Selena fans from Brazil who were hoping to meet the singer outside Selena's airport terminal.
Selena initially blows past the girls and gets into her waiting car ... while the girls continue to yell at Gomez, pleading for a moment of her time.
Eventually, Gomez cracks the window and motions for the girls to come over -- they race over to the car, fling the door open, and quickly barrel into the vehicle.
Selena's security guard rushes in to pull 'em out -- as if she's in harm's way -- but Selena waves him off ... and he stands down. The car eventually drives off with all of the girls inside.
So, what's the message here Selena? If fans track you down at the airport and swarm your car, you'll let them inside? You REALLY wanna encourage obsessed fans to impede your personal space in the hopes they can get some private time?
For the record, Selena's received death threats on multiple occasions from multiple people -- one of whom is a mentally unstable man who was arrested for stalking the actress.

The mother of eight opened up to BullyVille about what she categorizes as emotional bullying, in a piece titled, “My Experience with Real Life and Internet Bullying” — claiming not only that she was bullied in middle school, but she was also the victim of “adult bullying.”
“I’ve been bullied. A lot,” Kate writes
“Most of my memories are confusing emotional struggles to figure out who I was and where I fit in. I was definitely bullied back then and the cruel comments and mean displays are memories that have left deep scars that remain with me til this day. Bullying made me feel insecure, alone, ugly, powerless, and hopeless at times.”
“When my life became very public in 2006 with the airing of our show ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8′ on TLC, I was honestly surprised that ‘adult bullying’ via the Internet existed,” Kate says.
“I am a positive person by nature and the fact that people, many of them, flocked to the Internet to make ugly hurtful and untrue comments about myself truly shocked me!”
“I ignore most of the hate and lies. I have better things to do with my time. I have eight wonderful children who need a mother to show them the love and support that surrounds them, not retaliation and bitterness,” she says.
“I use my haters as my motivators. If they say I can’t do it, rest assured I WILL do it. And I won’t stop until I’ve succeeded in achieving any given goal… Since bullies typically come from a place of jealousy, I try not to let any of their vile dangerous words permeate me and who I know I am.”

Jessica Chastain ay currently call New York home, but this awards season, she truly is bi-coastal.

But before Chastain hits the red carpet at the Dolby Theatre, she’ll take her final bow fo Heires on Saturday, Feb. 9.

Up next for the 35-year-old is a role i Miss JulieLi Ullmann’s adaptation o AugustStrindberg’s 19th century-set novel, opposit Colin Farrel an Samantha Morton ndash; but Chastain has her sights set on a fellow Oscar contender to be a future co-star.

What is your favorite La Chastain role?
The Jonas Brothers appeared last night on a show from E's Latin American channel. The band talked about their reunion, a bit about their upcoming album and tour,their fans, and their love lives(except for Kevin's). Awkward moments include the reporter asking them about a failed movie project from about 4 years ago as if it were currently happening, and also when the reporter asked about purity rings. And Nick is not here for people trying to make him speak Spanish phrases when he doesn't know what they mean.
The video starts off in Spanish but the interview is in English.
I'm tired of waiting for new music, but since they're shooting a music video in New Orleans next week it sounds like things are finally moving toward getting music released
Madonna's getting into the giving groove.
The Material Girl has agreed to donate a slew of her MDNA tour outfits and props to an auction to help raise money to benefit the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, confirmed to E! News that the 54-year-old "Dress You Up" singer plans to give a variety of items from her latest blockbuster road show, including the majorette costume and other mementos she wore onstage.
This isn't the first time she's pitched in. Just two weeks after the hurricane ravaged the East Coast, the Queen of Pop's tour stopped in Manhattan where she announced she was baring her backside for storm victims and urged her audience to throw money onstage to help with the fundraising efforts. Madonna also made a pilgrimage to the Rockaways to see the devastation wrought by Sandy firsthand and meet with families affected by the storm.
While the hitmaker's charitable efforts will no doubt put a smile on those in need, Madonna also received some welcome news herself today after an appeals court in St. Petersburg Russia upheld a lower court's decision to reject an $11 million suit filed against her after she was alleged to have violated a local law banning homosexual "propaganda."
Per Bloomberg, the St. Petersburg City Court affirmed a Nov. 22 district court opinion against nine local residents who accused Madonna of unlawfully promoting a gay agenda during a concert there last August.
He'll play the lead in the Michael Lannan project about a group of gay friends living in San Francisco.
Glee's Jonathan Groff is heading to San Francisco via HBO.
The actor has been tapped to star in the premium cable network's comedy pilot about a group of gay friends from Bored to Death's Sarah Condon and writer Michael Lannan, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Groff will play Patrick in the untitled Lannan vehicle about three thirtysomething friends living in San Francisco who grapple with all the options in contemporary life and the complexities of the modern gay experience. Patrick is described as a gay man with a successful career as a video game developer who is less successful in his personal life.
In addition, Juilliard grad Frankie Alvarez will co-star as Augustin, an artist's assistant and Patrick's best friend who has a strong ego and for whom politics make it difficult for him to settle down with his boyfriend.
The comedy hails from Condon and David Marshall Grant (Brothers and Sisters), with Lannan (Remember Me) on board to pen the script. Andrew Haigh will helm the pilot, which is based on Lannan's feature script Lorimer.
Groff, repped by WME, most recently was a regular on the second season of Starz's recently canceled Kelsey Grammer drama Boss. His credits include episodes of The Good Wife and features Taking Woodstock and The Conspirator. He next voices the lead character in Disney's upcoming animated feature Frozen and the David Sedaris adaptation C.O.G. On Broadway, the Tony nominee's résumé includes Spring Awakening.
