PARIS HILTON TAKES IT OFF FOR MAGIC?

According to the National Ledger & In Touch Paris, Paris Hilton may have missed her calling as a magician's assistant.  Tina Sims reports,  "But instead of taking it all off for fame, Paris has now decided to tone it down and work Vegas and just take half off.  Sort of."  Earlier this month she escorted contestants from her upcoming MTV reality series, My New BFF, to Las Vegas’ Mirage Hotel’s villas for comedian Jeff Beacher’s Madhouse show after-party.  The magazine reports that as part of the final act, Paris jumped onstage to assist magician Nathan Burton with a classic illusion — sawing a starlet in half. “At first I was a little scared but it was a lot of fun,” Paris reveals to In Touch. Unfortunately, the heiress won’t be spilling secrets of the trade.

NEW PICS FROM PRESTO

Comingsoon.net and Empire Movie News have posted new pictures from "Presto," the animated short film which will be screened just prior Pixar's latest release Wall-E. The gusy at ComingSoon.net have had a chance to see the short in it's entirety and say that it's one of Pixar's best. Dignity. Poise. Mystery. We expect nothing less from the great, turn-of-the-century magician, Presto. But, when Presto forgets to feed his rabbit one too many times, well, there's really no telling what to expect! This latest comical short film from Pixar Animation Studios follows the escalating high jinx of the amazing Presto, his rabbit Alec, and what happens onstage when a star magician's ego provokes some clever revenge from his neglected costar.
