Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is spotted on the set of The Avengers over the weekend in New York (April 23). Jackson plays Nick Fury in the film - the same role he played in Iron Man and Iron Man 2. These pics were taken the same day Chris Evans was seen on set (you can also see Evans with Jackson in a few of the pics in the gallery below).
Make sure you bookmark Caught on Set's The Avengers page for all the latest on set pics.
Obsessed With Film is asking how much you would pay for a script to The Avengers? The site was contacted by an anonymous source who claims to have a leaked script from the film belong to Samuel L. Jackson:
"I have one hard copy that I am looking to sell and I will not be making any copies, therefore exclusivity is guaranteed. Considering that the release of The Avengers is over a year away this script should generate a substantial amount of traffic for the website that acquires it."
You can check out some pics on Obsessed With Film. It looks pretty legit!

Mario Lopez and Kathy Griffin
Kathy Griffin is spotted filming an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez at The Grove in Hollywood on Monday (April 25). Kathy was there to promote her new TV Guide channel on-hour special Kathy Griffin's Insightful and Hilarious Take on the Royal Wedding.
Regarding her qualifications to host the show, Kathy joked:
"I'm thrilled at the opportunity to take TV Guide Network to a level of high class ... or down to the gutter; I haven't decided which… Either way, as a longtime royal watcher — and let's be honest, I'm referring to Prince Harry's adorable arse — I'm eminently qualified to cover the wedding of the year, and not just because I once saw Helen Mirren at In-N-Out Burger.
"If I can survive having Brooke Shields as my maid of honor (go ahead and Google that one, I'll wait) then I'm fully prepared for that cozy little chapel of love called Westminster Abbey. And by Westminster Abbey I mean a TV studio full of judgment."
Check out Kathy Griffin's Insightful and Hilarious Take on the Royal Wedding this Friday at 8PM.
