David Petraeus is in ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’?; ‘The Host’ trailer debuts

A morning mix of entertainment headlines . . .

In an odd coincidence, the now former head of the CIA, David Petraeus (you’ve probably heard of him), is featured in the new, heavily hyped video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.” In the fictional world of the game, he’s cast as the defense secretary. For the record, someone else provides his “voice,” and Paula Broadwell does not appear at any point. However, Oliver North — who did lend his own words to the proceedings — does show up, as does the music of Trent Reznor. So the next time someone says you don’t keep up with current events because you’re too busy playing video games, feel free to point out that video games and current events are basically the same thing.

Selena Gomez was among the honorees at last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards.

In other preposterous “Star Wars” rumors, a sketchy report in the U.K. Express suggests that Darth Vader could be in the next movie, even though — spoiler alert from 1983 — he died in “Return of the Jedi.” (Punch Drunk Critics)

Barbra Walters is still kind of irritated about Lindsay Lohan bailing on their interview and then deciding to chat up Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” instead. (TV Column)

Phew, y’all. “Nashville”got a full season pick-up from ABC. (Huffington Post)
