A morning mix of entertainment headlines...

Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell are now married. The actors got married Tuesday, according to People magazine, during what a rep for the couple calls “a small ceremony with close family and friends.” The two began dating in 2005, then split for a period during which Wood was engaged to Marilyn Manson, then later reconciled. They reportedly got engaged earlier this year. As a tribute to their matrimonial union, here’s Wood and Bell starring in the music video that introduced them to each other: Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” (People) — the family tree-researching Web site that loves to figure out how famous people are related to other famous people — has discovered that George Clooney is related to Abraham Lincoln. Okay, so they’re not exactly brothers: they’re more like half-first cousins, five times removed. This also means that Clooney and Tom Hanks are related, since Hanks is a third cousin, four times removed of the 16th president. And this also proves that both actors are related to Daniel Day-Lewis who, as far as I am concerned, is Abraham Lincoln. (Reuters)

So apparently, according to an interview in Entertainment Weekly, Mark Hamill knew a while ago that there would be more “Star Wars” movies.
