Entertainment News For Thursday!

     Bosses at The Standard Hotel in New York City have fired an employee who leaked the surveillance video footage of Jay Z's elevator brawl with Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles. On Monday, video footage showed Knowles kicking and punching Jay in an elevator. Now bosses at the hotel have found the employee responsible for taking the footage from security cameras and have fired the worker. A statement from Hotel officials confirms the unnamed staff member was terminated for "breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential video," and promises to give "all available information to criminal authorities".

     Neil Patrick Harris declined an offer from America's CBS network bosses to take over for David Letterman after he departs The Late Show. He has revealed he was at the top of the shortlist to take over for the comedian, who is set to leave his post in 2015. In a recent interview,  he admitted he met with the head of CBS to discuss the possibility of the new gig, but ultimately said no due to the routine nature of a nightly job, adding,adding, "I don't have any interest in doing 'monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest musical act, goodnight."  He also revealed that he was offered the gig held by Craig Ferguson, who is also leaving his position on The Late Late Show.

      Amy Poehler showed off her kind side when she gave up her first class-seat on a flight from Los Angeles to New York to a mother with an infant. She noticed the new mom was struggling with the baby and her luggage and insisted she take her larger seat on the plane - but it took some convincing. A source says, "The woman kept refusing the offer, but Amy wouldn't budge. She literally had to push the mom into her first-class seat. It was really sweet." The woman subsequently accepted Poehler's kind gesture and the actress sat in an aisle seat in coach class. The source adds, "She took pictures with the other passengers and joked around. Everyone loved her."
