Tom Cruise trespasser turns out to be drunk neighbor; Gary Glitter arrested in BBC scandal

A morning mix of entertainment headlines...

Tom Cruise: not around during trespassing incident. (Evan Agostini - INVISION/AP)
A trespasser attempting to climb the fence at the home of Tom Cruise on Sunday was tasered by a security guard attempting to detain him until police arrived. (Cruise wasn’t home at the time.) It turned out the stun gun wasn’t particularly necessary: the guy was just a drunk neighbor who apparently tried to enter the property by accident. Hey, we’ve all mistaken Tom Cruise’s luxurious Beverly Hills home for our own after a few cocktails. Am I right? (Associated Press)

Gary Glitter was arrested over the weekend in connection with the investigation of child sex abuse allegations involving the late BBC host Jimmy Savile . Glitter — the musical artist responsible for the ‘70s hit and subsequent sports anthem “Rock & Roll (Part 2)” — was taken into custody Sunday on suspicion of sexual offenses and was released later that day. In 2006, Glitter was convicted in Vietnam of committing obscene acts with children. Police say Savile, who died last year, may have molested more than 200 children. (AP)

Connie Britton and “Friday Night Lights” producer Sarah Aubrey wrote an op-ed for USA Today, suggesting that women reclaim “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” from catch phrase borrower Mitt Romney . They also criticized Romney for advocating for the dissolution of Planned Parenthood, noting that the organization gave Britton’s Tami Taylor a pregnancy test and Smash Williams’s mother a job during the NBC series’s run. The op-ed is surprisingly free of the Tami Taylor-ism, “I appreciate that, y’all.” (USA Today)

Kim Kardashian: half woman, half fish? (Charles Sykes - CHARLES SYKES/INVISION/AP)

Even better Halloween costume: Avril Lavigne’s ex-husband, Deryck Whibley of the band Sum 41, and his girlfriend dressed up as Lavigne and her fiance, Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Kroeger had a retort all ready to go on Twitter. (Buzzfeed)

Natina Reed — the singer and rapper who was member of the R&B group Blaque — has died after being hit by a car on Friday in the Atlanta area. Reed, who also played one of the East Compton Clovers in the movie “Bring It On,” would have turned 33 Sunday. (AP)

Some fans apparently walked out of a Madonna concert on Saturday after she urged the crowd to vote for President Barack Obama. We’re all assuming this was a negative response. Maybe they were just leaving immediately so they could vote early. (New York Daily News)

Argo” topped the weekend box office in its third week of release, earning $12.4 million. The challenging “ Cloud Atlas ” debuted in third place with a weak $9.4 million. (AP)

FYI: Levi Johnston is now married. (Us Weekly)

Joss Whedon wants you to know that if Mitt Romney gets elected, the zombie-pocalypse will commence immediately. (YouTube)
