NEW ORLEANS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former My Name Is Earl actor Jason Lee has shed Earl Hickey’s signature moustache since the sitcom was abruptly cancelled last year. Although Lee says growing the facial hair was the “smartest thing” he ever did as an actor because it “made” his character, the face fuzz is long gone. He says, “With the death of Earl, came the death of the ’stache. I’m happy to have lost it.”

HOLLYWOOD – Ashton Kutcher really needs to brush up on his combat skills. The actor admits he “hurt a lot of people” trying to do his own stunts for his new comedy Killers. Despite training himself for fight scenes using exercise DVDs he bought from infomercials, Kutcher wound up accidentally punching and knocking out a professional stunt guy during filming. He also kicked co-star Rob Riggle in the face.

NEW YORK – Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will soon find himself in the hot seat. He’s set to be the next major celebrity “roasted” by New York’s legendary Friar’s Club. The Pulp Fiction director will be the leading star of his own roast this October as he’s mocked and ridiculed by his beloved friends and peers, just like Chevy Chase, Richard Pryor, and Bruce Willis have been “roasted” in the past.

LONDON – Just like his 24 character Jack Bauer, actor Kiefer Sutherland has impeccable timing. Sutherland recently visited St. Mary’s Hospital in London where he was born in 1966 for the first time since his birth. The weird part: He caught a glimpse of the original hospital literally seconds before it was destroyed by a giant wrecking ball. Sutherland had no idea the building was in the process of being torn down that day.
