Matthew Broderick is in the news these days, not only for giving blocked director Kenneth Lonergan a reported $1 million to finish his long-stalled movie Margaret (which stars Anna Paquin and Allison Janney), but he and wife Sarah Jessica Parker are expecting twins, via a surrogate mother. UPDATE: Broderick gives a comeback performance in Josh Goldin's Wonderful World, writes Jan Stuart.

Casting is under way on Parker's follow-up to the Sex and the City movie, which is set to start rolling this summer, with Chris Noth, Evan Handler and David Eigenberg set to join Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall as well as writer-director Michael Patrick King. Release date: May 28, 2010.
