Sarah Drew of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ pregnant; Alex Trebek injured while chasing burglar

A few of the celebrity and entertainment headlines on my radar this morning ...

Sarah Drew, who plays Dr. April Kepner on “Grey’s Anatomy,” is expecting her first child with husband Peter Lanfer. The baby is due in January. (People)

Alek Trebek: the answer to the question, “Which game show host is willing to chase down a robber in the wee hours of the morning?” (BEN HIDER/GETTY IMAGES)
Alek Trebek snapped his Achilles’ tendon early Wednesday morning while chasing a female burglar who attempted to steal cash and a bracelet at his San Francisco hotel. (The bracelet belonged to Trebek’s mother, and is something he wears during every taping of “Jeopardy.”) San Francisco police arrested the woman on charges of felony burglary and possession of stolen property. Trebek, 71, appeared later Wednesday on crutches at the National Geographic World Championship, held at Google headquarters. Um, I’ll take Gutsy Game Show Hosts for $500, please.

Not surprisingly, Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” re-enters the top 10 on the Billboard album chart in the wake of her death. Her two other collections — “Frank” and “Back to Black: B-sides” — are back on the top 200 albums list as well, while “Rehab” is back on the digital songs chart. (Billboard)

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth have reportedly broken up. (Us magazine)

Cady Elmer, a teenager from the small Virginia town of Poquoson, is campaigning for Justin Bieber to be her prom date. Have we reached the tipping point on the trying-to-date-a-celeb trend? (Huffington Post)

James Franco campaigned for a role in the “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” but was turned down. He had wanted to film it at the same time he worked on a “Twilight”-related performance piece. Because he’s Franco. (Vulture)

Watch Harrison Ford argue with an old “Star Wars” friend, after the jump.

J.J. Abrams is reportedly closer to directing “Star Trek 2,” which will definitely be postponed from its original summer 2012 release date. (Deadline)

Will Arnett recently confirmed that the “Arrested Development” movie is a go. What, you’re skeptical? (LAist)

Harrison Ford “fights” with Chewbacca on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Note: This video contains some slightly NSFW language directed at a Wookie. Another note: Even though this is obviously a joke, it’s still vaguely heart-breaking to watch Han Solo fight with Chewie.
