ENTERTAINMENT: ‘Peepshow’ downsizing celebrities

  In a cost-cutting move, Planet Hollywood’s ambitious topless revue “Peepshow” won’t replace Aubrey O’Day with another celebrity when the pop star’s limited run ends in December.
  Director Jerry Mitchell “agrees we can get a pretty terrific person locally to play that role,” co-producer Scott Zeiger says of the “Peep Diva” part played by Spice Girl Mel B. when the show first opened.
  Holly Madison will continue to be the show’s marquee draw, and producers have high hopes for an E! series, tentatively titled “Planet Holly.” “If the pilot resonates and ends up getting picked up the way we think, something like that could change the show,” Zeiger says.
  A backstage documentary certainly did wonders for a little show called “Skintight” at Harrah’s Las Vegas a few years ago. Until then, however, Zeiger confirms he will be talking to the Actors Equity union about a January break for “Peepshow,” similar to Cirque du Soleil’s annual extended vacations for its titles.

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much. We peruse poster after poster, kind of like walking the aisles of a ‘90s-era video store. That one poster image, meant to appeal to as many people as possible, is often all we see before […]
