Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s pro-Sarah Palin point of view could be put to work this weekend. ABC confirms that “The View” star has been invited by the Republican vice presidential nominee to appear at two weekend rallies.

A rep for Hasselbeck confirms that she’ll be attending two rallies in Florida on Sunday, one in Tampa at noon and one in Kissimmee at 3 p.m. Hasselbeck will be introducing Palin at the rallies.

This wouldn’t be the first time Hasselbeck has appeared at an event in an official GOP capacity; during the Republican National Convention, she hosted a lunch for Cindy McCain.

Ed Norton on Brad Pitt: He ‘can't sing’
If you’ve heard rumors about a “Fight Club” musical with the music of Trent Reznor, don’t expect to see Brad Pitt or Edward Norton appear in any such production, according to a recent interview with Norton.

Slideshow: Brad Pitt “This has been floating around for a while. I’ve seen different notions of it,” Norton told MTV in an interview. “I doubt it’ll be me and Brad (Pitt). I know Brad can’t sing. Reznor would be about the right vibe for it, I guess.”

After that enthusiastic endorsement of the project, Norton was asked about the possibility of fans seeing him in an “Incredible Hulk” sequel or whether he’d be in “The Avengers,” as rumored.

“I really actually have no information. I don’t know what the agenda is in the moment, but I’m sure you’ll find out more than me,” Norton said.

Katie Holmes’ tepid return to TV
That fall shows are having a tough time gaining traction or achieving impressive ratings success isn’t news at this point, but how bad is it? Not even Katie Holmes could make a noticeable difference in ratings when she made her big return to prime time television on ABC’s “Eli Stone.”

Slideshow: Katie Holmes While Holmes’ appearance didn’t cause a frenzy the likes of Britney Spears’ appearance on “How I Met Your Mother,” she did soften the blow for the ratings decline expected from the second episode of “Stone.”

Most shows lose between 15 and 20 percent of viewers between the season premiere and their second episodes. Thanks in part to Holmes, “Stone” was down only 3 percent.

In other Holmes news, her Broadway show, “All My Sons,” is performing “solidly” according to an on-set source. “Truthfully, we weren’t totally sure what to expect, but she’s delivering consistently. We’re happy with that,” said the source.

DJ AM and Mandy Moore back together
Shortly after the plane crash that injured Travis Barker and killed four others, Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, who also suffered injuries, was seen with former flame Mandy Moore.

The two, according to both Us Weekly and In Touch, are more than just friends, though. Sources tell both magazines that the accident has brought the couple back together.

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings “It’s back on,” a DJ AM source told Us Weekly. “Since the accident, it’s blossomed into something again. ... Mandy said, ‘I like this guy a lot and I want to see where it can go again. Life is too short to not be with someone you really care about.’”

In Touch describes the pair as “inseparable” since the September crash, and cite a recent appearance together at the Friendly House Awards Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. on Oct. 18 as evidence the two have rekindled their  romance.

“They were enjoying each other’s company and sitting very close,” an onlooker at the event told In Touch.

Coco Arquette: ‘Unfortunately’ going to act
Given her parents are Courteney Cox and David Arquette, and her godmother is Jennifer Aniston, it’s only natural to wonder whether Coco, now 4, will become an actor herself.

When Life & Style caught up with the Arquettes, Courteney’s answer was, “Probably, unfortunately! She has a really strong personality; she’s a funny, quirky kid.”

David chimed in to say that he didn’t see comedy in Coco’s future. “Coco doesn’t like people laughing at her, so it should be drama,” he told the magazine.
