2. How Depp's 'Dark Shadows' Character Changed Him

Johnny Depp has played his fair share of roles that require elaborate makeup, including those in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland, and his Dark Shadows role of Barnabas had him powdered-up once again. Depp talked to ET about what it was like for him to become Barnabas for the film's production.

"[With] the combination of the make-up with the walk differently; you look at things differently; you touch things differently," Depp reflected.

For the role, Depp was required to wear finger extensions that would stay on for the entire day of filming, which made his off-screen everyday living a little complicated on set. Director Tim Burton revealed that Depp had a team of people to help him with tasks like eating.

Dark Shadows marks the eighth film on which Depp and Burton have worked together, and while a ninth project between the two will probably be in the works in a few years, the two were uncertain as to what it would be. "[After] every movie you make, this always your last movie," Burton said.

3. John Travolta's Rep Shoots Down Assault Claim

John Travolta's camp is denying claims of assault and sexual battery brought against the actor by an unnamed masseur in a lawsuit filed May 4.

"This lawsuit is a complete fiction and fabrication," the actor's rep said in a statement to ET. "None of the events claimed in the suit ever occurred. The plaintiff, who refuses to give their name, knows that the suit is a baseless lie. It is for that reason that the plaintiff hasn't been identified with a name even though it is required to do so. On the date when plaintiff claims John met him, John was not in California and it can be proved that he was on the East Coast. Plaintiff's attorney has filed this suit to try and get his 15 minutes of fame. John intends to get this case thrown out and then he will sue the attorney and Plaintiff for malicious prosecution."

The suit alleges that Travolta stripped in front of the plaintiff and also that he touched his genitals in front of him. The suit goes on to claim that Travolta did apologize but proceeded to suggest that they have a three-way with a "Hollywood starlet."

The plaintiff is seeking $2 million in damages, according to the filings.

5. '30 Rock' To Air Its Final Episode Next Season

There was a bit of confusion when NBC announced that their Thursday hit 30 Rock had been renewed, but with a catch-- only 13 episodes of the Emmy-winning show would air next season. On Thursday the network revealed that the upcoming abbreviated season will indeed be their last.

Keeping it short and sweet, an NBC spokeswoman told the press: "30 Rock has been picked up for its final season."

30 Rock premiered in 2006 and won numerous awards along the way thanks in part to the show's creator-star Tina Fey and co-star Alec Baldwin.
