Most people who’ve lived through the early 2000s will remember punk rocker Avril Lavigne for songs like “Complicated,” but she’s in the news for something a little different—her engagement to Chad Kroeger, the lead singer of everybody’s favorite band, Nickelback. (People)

It’s really happening: Ellen DeGeneres is in talks with Disney/Pixar to rejoin the animated seas in the “Finding Nemo” sequel. (The Hollywood Reporter)

If you think you recognize a certain “swag-filled” vocal in an upcoming “The Simpsons” episode, it’s probably because it’s Justin Bieber’s voice you’re hearing, as the singer recorded a vocal cameo for the show. (EW)

Fans of Kat Dennings should be relieved to know that the actress is reprising her role in “Thor” for the upcoming “Thor” sequel, named “Thor: The Dark World.” And there was much rejoicing. (Deadline)

It appears NBC is wiping its old comedy line clean completely, as the upcoming season of “The Office” will be its last. Never fear, though; fans can still catch Dwight’s family shenanigans in his upcoming spin-off show. (Vulture)
