Entertainment News For Wednesday!

      The producers of the Hunger Games film series are looking for ways to change the upcoming Mockingjay movie due to the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. He played Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, and his character has an integral role in Mockingjay - Part 2. Executives say Hoffman died with an emotional scene yet to be filmed. An exec says, "As it relates to production, it’s going to have no impact. Obviously, we're going to have a couple of work-around issues but the movie will be creatively whole. His performances in both movies will be up to the best of his craft. We feel it will be a good tribute to him."      

   Ke$ha has put her recovery first, postponing tour stops in March and April to extend her rehab for an eating disorder. She says, "I was so looking forward to performing at these dates but I need to follow my doctor's advice and get my health back on track. All of your support during this time has been so amazing. I couldn't have done this without you all. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever on the next tour." It's the first we have heard from the singer since January, when she reached out via Twitter to thank them for their support.

     Were the Red Hot Chili Peppers faking their performance at the Super Bowl halftime show? Bassist Flea confirmed that they were NOT playing their instruments live, but gave an explanation. He said, "When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play , it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the instruments would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period."

      Late actor Paul Walker has willed his entire fortune, estimated at $25 million, to his teenage daughter Meadow. The Fast & Furious star, who was killed in a fiery car crash last November, also made it clear in his will that he wanted his mother Cheryl appointed as Meadow's guardian and the executor of her inheritance. His father petitioned the court to appoint his wife as Meadow's guardian in accordance with his final wishes. Meadow currently lives with her mother in Hawaii, but she had been living with Walker at the time of his death.
