Cameron Diaz joined Twitter this week, and one of her first posts was this image from the set of director Will Gluck’s upcoming reimagining of Annie. It stars Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Cameron as the drunken, child-hating Miss Hannigan. Personally, I don’t get it, but then I’m a purist. It’s Carol Burnett or no one. I even railed against Kathy Bates in the 1999 Disney TV version (which was just GOD AWFUL, btw). What do you think of this look for a modern Miss Hannigan? (via Twitter)
1. Taking his cues from the Brad Pitt School of Grooming, greasy future Oscar nominee and eerily well-preserved 40-year-old Jared Leto left his New York City hotel this morning carrying a cup of tea.
2. What a study in contrasts: The perennially natty James McAvoy walks the red carpet at the UK premiere of Filth in London. How those blue eyes sparkle!
3: Emmy-winning super-hunk Bobby Cannavale films a scene on the set of the upcoming Annie reboot/disaster. Even Rose Byrne can’t help but stare adoringly at that dopey mug.
4: And American Horror Story‘s Evan Peters giggles with girlfriend and costar Emma Roberts after a trip to Sprinkles ice cream after a fast sushi dinner in Los Angeles. OMGOMGOMG, EIGHT MORE DAYS UNTIL COVEN!
If you haven’t heard, Jay-Z is producing a remake of Annie with an ethnically diverse cast. Quvenzhane Wallis is playing the lead and Jamie Foxx is playing a character named Benjamin Staxx, which I am assuming is the Daddy Warbucks character. Miss Hannigan will be Cameron Diaz; not sure how I feel about that, but I will definitely be seeing this one. I am so intrigued by what Jay Z’s vision will be musically, etc. It can go either way.

Wowlebrity Daniel Franzese plays Daddy Warbucks in a production of Annie with adorable four-year-old thespians from the musical theater summer camp at Encore Arts Center. In a case of adorable overload, the camp pairs a professional actor with a whole cast of four-year-olds.
