Robin Williams to play Susan Boyle?

Talk about one of the most bizarre film stories of the year - Robin Williams admits he has been asked to play Susan Boyle in a biopic of the reality TV star.

The Scottish singer shot to fame after wowing the world with her performances in ITV show Britain's Got Talent earlier this year. While there have been rumours about a biopic being planned, no one would have guessed they would want the Mrs Doubtfire star to play the lead.

Talking to the Daily Star, he said, "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing.

"She's got a really great voice."

Susan Boyle has become a household name in the US, and has even appeared on Oprah Winfrey's chat show.

Leonardo DiCaprio loses weight for movie

The 34-year-old actor has embarked on a new diet and exercise regime to help shed the pounds ahead of a fight sequence for action movie 'Inception'.

"Leonardo needs to shed at least 30lbs. He's gained weight recently and looks almost a bit flabby, which isn't good, especially as the camera adds pounds. "There's an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on," said a source.

Although Leonardo - who plays Jacob Hastley in the film, which is about an officer worker who becomes involved in a blackmail scandal - is finding it hard to cut out calorific treats, he is determined to be in top shape for the scene.

The movie source said: "He is following a strict diet and is embarking on a rigorous workout regime. Leonardo is a pretty determined kind of guy, when he sets his mind to things he always achieves them. Though this is going to be hard for him, you can guarantee he'll succeed."

Cowell will 'give up X Factor in three years'

The music mogul allegedly admitted that he almost walked away from the X-Factor several years ago, but was persuaded to stay by contestant Leona Lewis.

"A couple of years ago I was not sure I wanted to carry on," Cowell told The Mirror. "It's a lot to juggle - making the shows, being on them - so I had to think twice about it. I think Leona Lewis probably changed my mind. She reminded me why we do this.

"Leona is the reason I decided to stay on two more years. She made it worthwhile again."

He added: "Three years and that's it - I will do what I've always done. I run a record label, I run a TV company, we're making movies now - I love that part of my life.

"I probably get more satisfaction from making a show than being on a show. I've been lucky, but I also know not to outstay my welcome."

Downey Jr: 'I want my own superhero suit'

Robert Downey Jr. has said that he is annoyed with his Iron Man bosses because they won't make him his own superhero suit.

The 44-year-old actor, who plays industrialist Tony Stark and his metal-clad alter ego in the movies, was apparently told he could have his own version of the costume to take home with him, but is still waiting.

He said: "The producers keep telling me that they're going to give me a suit with all the bells and whistles but I still don't have it. I don't know, maybe I should get it in my contract. It would be great to have one at home - a talking point."
Downey continued: "I suppose it would be a case of worshipping false idols, which I don't have any trouble with as long as the idol is made in my image!"
