- NFL star James Laurinaitis discussed the wrestling career of his father, "Road Warrior Animal" Joe Laurinaitis, in an NFL Network interview Thursday night. After Laurinaitis's St. Louis Rams defeated the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night, Laurinaitis joined the NFL Network set to talk about the game and his famous father. Laurinaitis said his father was "Joe" at home and as his sports coach, but the "Animal stuff" was his identity on the road.

- MLB star Josh Reddick celebrated the Oakland A's AL West division title on Wednesday by dressing in a Ric Flair robe and chugging beers like "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

- "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson is set to appear in a movie role "different than anything he's ever done," according to the director of the movie. The movie is "Hercules" and the director is Brett Ratner, who told Entertainment Tonight in an interview this week: "There's no definitive Hercules film. This will be the definitive Hercules. I promise you that. It's starring The Rock. And it's different than anything he's ever done and it's different than anything I've ever done."

- After a Hulk Hogan sex tape leaked on the Internet Wednesday afternoon, mainstream outlets began covering the story, including the E! entertainment publication. The existence of a tape was first reported by TMZ several months ago when Vivid claimed they had knowledge of a tape. Hogan threatened to take legal action to ensure no one profited from the tape, claiming it was recorded without his knowledge. Portions of the tape then ended up on the Gawker.com website on Wednesday. [ LINK: Coverage at EOnline.com - http://eonli.ne/QW0Har ]

- Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler and boyfriend George Clooney made a public appearance together Thursday night promoting a new movie, "Argo." The duo, who have been rumored for a potential break-up the past few months, walked the red carpet at the premiere in Beverly Hills, Calif. and posed for pictures.
