Dentist saves Bublé concert
Thanks to some help from a dentist, singer Michael Bublé was able to go on stage in New Hampshire as scheduled.
WMUR-TV reports that less than 24 hours before he was to perform in Manchester last week, Bublé dislodged a crown while trying to open a ketchup packet with his teeth.
The crooner’s tour manager tracked down the home number of dentist David Bloom and reached his wife. Bloom was in surgery but was able to make room for Bublé.
Bloom said that afterward there was some photo-taking. Bublé gave them front-row seats to the concert and kudos at the end of the show.
Russell films final ‘Fast’ scenes
Kurt Russell confirms he has completed his final two scenes in the latest “Fast & Furious” scenes without the late Paul Walker.
Russell had a day left of shooting when Walker died in a car crash in November outside of Los Angeles.
In an interview this week, the 63-year-old actor said he returned to work on the two scenes left to do with Walker about two months ago. He said he filmed the scenes with Walker’s two brothers Caleb and Cody.
The “Fast” team was “trying to work the best magic they can to make ‘Fast & Furious 7’ complete,” he said, but did not say whether scenes had been rewritten.
Russell signed on to the seventh film in the franchise to play the father of Vin Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto. Acknowledging that Walker’s death left the filmmakers in a “tough spot,” Russell said the brothers had a great relationship with the “Fast & Furious people” and Diesel had been “really working it hard.” The film is to premiere in April 2015.

Vanessa Lachey, 33, last had a role on the sitcom “Dads” on Fox.
Lopez inspires name for mite
Pop singer Jennifer Lopez has had a newly discovered water mite in Puerto Rico named in her honor.
The music of the Bronx-born entertainer who has Puerto Rican roots was a hit with the group who made the discovery, biologist Vladimir Pesic said in an email Wednesday.
Pesic and other scientists found the newly baptized Litarachna lopezae mite on a coral reef in Mona Passage, between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
