Actor Matt Dallas has a crush on Amy Adams

This is a totally random story - but I thought you might be interested by it.

Julie Plec - producer of TV show "Kyle XY" - told the San Diego Comic-Con audience a very cute story about actor Matt Dallas (pictured left) yesterday afternoon.

She revealed that Amy Adams was Matt’s first celebrity crush. Julie tried to hook the two up, but unfortunately for him Amy already had a boyfriend. The crowd went "Awwwww......" when Julie said that. I wonder how Matt is going to react at the engagement news, lol.

Julie was with Matt when he first met Amy Adams while shooting "Enchanted" and he apparently completely fell in love with her.

Matt is currently filming the second season of "Kyle XY" in Canada. And before you ask, yes - it is in Vancouver where Amy is also filming "Night at the Museum 2" ;-)

Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo will marry in 2009

Wonderful news for Amy & Darren :)

USA Today has confirmed that the couple plans to marry sometime next year. Le Gallo supposedly proposed to Adams with a diamond by French jewelry designer Jean Dousset of Beverly Hills.

Most of us are obviously not surprised because we spotted the ring a couple of months ago but it's wonderful to hear the confirmation, isn't it? They both met in acting class six years ago.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Yesterday evening, Amy attended a Vanity Fair Party hosted by Louis Vuitton in Beverly Hills and she was litterarily glowing. More pictures to come.

Thank you very much to everyone who emailed me the news about Amy's engagement.

A golden encounter in Vancouver

Just in case some of you didn't read the comments posted after one of my recent blog entries ("Amy Adams dines out with Ben Stiller in Vancouver"), I'm re-posting below the cute story of Meg, who was lucky enough to meet Amy Adams in her store.

OK, here we go, first comment posted by Meg on July 13th:
"Amy Adams was shopping in my store today at Pacific Centre, she came in briefly yesterday and she was back again today in a nice blue dress, i could've talked to her! but she left so quickly!"

A couple of days later:
"I had a chance to talk to her TODAY!!! Amy came in to our store again during the afternoon (she's possibly staying in Four Seasons which is connected to the mall) but unlike the first couple times i saw her, she dressed very plainly and ...ordinarily so for a second there i almost doubted whether or not it was her, but when i had a chance to help her with a pair of shoes, i looked her in the eye and i saw the bags under her eyes, the pointy tip of her nose, (not in a bad way, she's very fair and beautiful in person) i knew it was her, (plus the red hair).

Unfortunately she didn't stay too long in the store because we didn't have the style of gold shoes she liked, although she was very polite and down to earth, no one would ever think she'd been an Oscar nominee. i wanted to acknowledge her quietly but didn't have a chance, however, im very happy that i finally spoke to her, oh so lovely".

Thank you very much Meg for sharing your lovely story with us!

Wicked movie officially confirmed by Universal Pictures

OK, I know I'm not the only 'Wicked' fan here (Amy herself is one of them in case you don't know!) and I thought you might be interested by the following press announcement released today by Universal Pictures. The producers have officially confirmed that a 'Wicked' movie is underway.

PLEASE LET THEM CONSIDER AMY FOR THE PART OF ELPHABA! We all know it's her dream role :) Although I suspect she would be more logically playing Glinda the Good if she ever was in the movie. Anyway-- I bet the producers would prefer Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth as they originated the roles on Broadway, so I don't think it will happen for Amy. Perhaps she will want to do a cameo and play a munchkin? Who knows! Here, here:

Marc Platt and Universal Pictures are taking formative steps toward a screen adaptation of "Wicked," the stage musical that Universal co-finances and Platt produces with David Stone.

After crossing the $1 billion mark in worldwide stage gross and opening its eighth production in Australia, "Wicked" has become one of the studio's most profitable investments and could follow a stage-to-screen track reminiscent of "Mamma Mia!" which U bows Friday.

Platt, who transitioned from U production prexy to producer under Stacey Snider and Ron Meyer, has been at the studio for a decade. While he remains close with Snider (who left to run DreamWorks), he said he's loyal to Meyer -- who championed U's investment in "Wicked" -- and has developed strong ties to U Pictures chairman Marc Shmuger, co-chairman David Linde and production president Donna Langley.

U brass has made it a priority to lock up their big suppliers, and Platt's pact follows longterm deals made by Imagine Entertainment and Working Title.

"Marc has strong commercial tastes, but so eclectic that you can't put him in a box or category," Langley said. "Our goal now is absolutely to make the 'Wicked' film, but much like Judy Craymer wouldn't give up screen rights to 'Mamma Mia!' until the stage show had reached its pinnacle, Marc and Stephen Schwartz are very mindful of the right timing. But we're dying to do it."

Platt, who produced the play with Stone and U, confirmed they are in early movie talks, and that book writer Winnie Holzman will write the script.

Amy Adams dines out with Ben Stiller in Vancouver

A big thank you goes to Jeff for informing us that Amy Adams and Ben Stiller were spotted dining out together at trendy Cioppino's restaurant in Yaletown recently.

Patrons inside recognized the stars, and ended up following them outside after dinner, where Stiller posed for pictures and signed autographs. The pair are in town working on the mega budget sequel "Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian".

Four join 'Night At The Museum' sequel

Are you as bored as I am? There was nothing exceptionally new on Amy Adams these last few weeks. She's still in Canada working on the sequel of 'Night at the Museum'. They're filming in studios so even if you're around Vancouver, your chances to meet one of the cast members is pretty slim.

Having said that, you might want to know that Christopher Guest, Jon Bernthal (Al Capone), Bill Hader (George Armstrong Custer) and Alain Chabat (Napoleon) all recently joined the cast of the movie. 'Night at the museum 2' is still scheduled for a May 22, 2009 release.
