Arnold Schwartzenegger Stops By Reddit–Says Twins 2 Will Happen

America’s favorite philandering Austrian Governator swung by Reddit today to do an “Ask Me Anything” session. As of the writing of this post he was still going. So go ask him something if you’re so inclined.

Thus far, not a whole lot to life lessons have been imparted to the girly men boys of Reddit. We did, however, learn that Arnold knows to write in cursive–even if he isn’t particularly good at it. We also learned that Twins 2 is apparently a go, with Danny Devito and Eddie Murphy.

Danny DeVito Bears Brunt of Early Schwarzenegger Jokes

One of the first things FishbowlLA heard this morning in connection with the shocking LA Times news about Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s love child was a joke on The Dan Patrick Show that Maria had always assumed the youngster was the Governator’s Twins co-star Danny DeVito.

Variations thereof are popping up all over Twitter. J.D. Crowe, a political cartoonist for Mobile, Alabama’s Press-Register, is getting heavy re-tweet action for his earlier, similar observation. Ditto for New York City YouTube talk show host Billy Eichner.

Steve Bing Feature to Premiere on YouTube

Set in ten bars around LA, writer-director Sebastien Gutierrez‘s comedy-drama Girl Walks Into a Bar stars such familiar names as Carla Gugino, Rosario Dawson, Josh Hartnett, Danny DeVito, and Zachary Quinto. However, when the film premieres March 11th, it will do so not in theaters but rather simultaneously at SXSW and on YouTube, for free.

Producer Steve Bing and promotional partner Lexus are dubbing their movie “the first major motion picture created specifically for web distribution.” Per today’s press release:

“The movie escapes the confines of traditional film production and is a bold undertaking that is set to transform the film industry,” said Dave Nordstrom, vice president of marketing, Lexus. “It seems fitting to support this initiative as we launch our most unconfined vehicle yet—the CT 200h hybrid —in a space that we know will reach an unconventional, sophisticated audience.”

Danny DeVito Isn’t Too Happy With the Prop 19 Vote

Danny DeVito has already established himself as one of the weirder tweeters we’ve read in the celebrity world. But his reaction to Prop 19 going (wait for it) up in smoke pushed him over the top.

Lunch at Michael’s: Post-Hasselhoff, All Business

We’re guessing many of our favorite media celebrity regulars have headed south with their families for spring break or to rev up from the endless winter doldrums that have left us feeling a bit grumpy. Today, the tables were packed with a cross section of Prada and Gucci suits, and the mood was definitely all business. Luckily, we got our boldface name fix Tuesday when lunchtime chronicler Diane Clehane broke bread with fashion maven Jaqui Lividini and the bustling dining room brimming with the usually eclectic mix of celebs. We spotted Marlo Thomas, Danny DeVito, Ron Perelman and Tommy Mottola in the mix. Some of the staffers were still buzzing about last week’s visit from David Hasselhoff, who most recently headlined a Las Vegas production of The Producers. Seems “The Hoff” made quite an impression. Says one fan of the tireless showman: “He looks great! If he’s had surgery you can’t tell — and believe me I’ve seen some scary ones in here. The guy is amazing!”

Here’s a rundown of today’s menu:

1. “Men Who Lunch”: BusinessWeek‘s Jon Fine (husband to our own mediabistro.com founder and CEO Laurel Touby), Radar editor Maer Roshan ABC News communications VP Jeff Schneider, Peter Himler, Arnold Huberman, Sirius Satellite Radio pr czar Patrick Reilly, Radar‘s Jeff Bercovici and Magazine Publishers of America’s Howard Polskin.

2. Casual chic: a tweedy Luke Janklow. The uber-agent was lunching with an unidentified jeans-clad beauty.

3. Univision’s Maryann Bannikarim and three guests.

4. Producer Jonathan Hart (Chicago) and four well-dressed gents.

5. Michael Fuchs and a bespectacled fellow who passed the time waiting for him by reading Variety.

6. Glamour editrix Cindi Leive and guests.
