In Other News...Scout, Seinfeld, and Sid

After disappearing from her San Bernardino County home, teen actress Scout Taylor-Compton was found safe only days after the media broke news that she was missing. The sixteen year-old actress, who starred in last summer’s teen comedy Sleepover, had been reported missing by her father and stepmother two weeks ago. County sheriffs, acting on a tip, found the presumed runaway hiding out elsewhere in her home town of Apple Valley; police assume that, following a family dispute, the teenage thesp left home for an extended slumber party of her own. Earlier this summer Taylor-Compton had finished shooting the independent drama, Tomorrow is Today and currently appears on the Bravo series, Hidden Howie.

Jerry Seinfeld said hello to a new son this week, as wife Jessica gave birth this Monday.

And finally, perhaps signaling a sea change in Hollywood’s latest box office downhill trend, the Academy — yes, that Academy — elected its new President Tuesday night. Producer Sid Ganis, whose expertise lies in years of upper-lever PR, boasts producing credits on such popular films as Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (24% on the Tomatometer), Big Daddy (31%) , Mr. Deeds (23%), The Master of Disguise (02%), and the recently announced screen adaptation, I Dream of Jeannie. Ganis has also served in the executive branches of Lucasfilm, Paramount Pictures, Sony and Columbia, and his production company Out of the Blue…Entertainment is set to release this year’s Akeelah and the Bee. His plans to reinvigorate the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences include establishing a film museum and increasing the relevance of the annual Awards telecast in the lives of Tinseltown denizens as well as the rest of the world.
