--Jared Leto's Oscar Acceptance Speech Edited In Russia
Jared Leto's [[ LET-oh ]] Academy Awards acceptance speech was widely considered one of this year's best, but movie-lovers in Russia didn't get a chance to hear it in its entirety. After winning the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Dallas Buyers Club," Leto got political and said he was thinking about all the struggling dreamers in places like Ukraine. But according to "The Hollywood Reporter," those comments never aired on the state-run Russian TV network, Channel One. A spokesperson for the network, however, says they had nothing to do with the edit. She explains that on Monday, Channel One aired a 90-minute international version of the Oscar ceremony that was "provided by the rights holder."

--3 Doors Down Bassist Placed Under House Arrest
Three Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell will be spending a lot of time in his new Nashville-area home after he was placed under house arrest until the start of his upcoming vehicular homicide trial. According to "The Tennessean," a criminal court judge gave the order this past Friday during a hearing, which was attended by all of Harrell's 3 Doors Down bandmates. The bassist -- who has since been suspended from the group -- was forced to scramble to find a house to live in because he isn't allowed to leave Tennesee's Davidson County. Harrell was charged with vehicular homicide while intoxicated last April after a crash that killed another driver. He pleaded not guilty and was out free on 100-thousand dollars bond. But Harrell was arrested again last month in Mississippi for driving under the influence, which led prosecutors to ask ...
