Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie hot for Halloween (as opposed to any other time)

brangelina.jpgFor those among the celebrity-obsessed seeking to be a star for a day, the hot costumes this Halloween are of power couple Brad Pitt and former Sneden’s Landing resident Angelina Jolie.

US Weekly cites a Captain Morgan/Kelton Research survey of 600 Americans, who rate Brangelina as this year’s most popular celebrity inspiration for holiday get-ups. Presumably, couples who dress up this way will spend the night arguing with each other over who’s more good-looking. Blech.

Other couples popular in the poll were Britney Spears and Kevin Federline; Chappaqua residents Bill and Hillary Clinton; recent Pelham dweller Tom Cruise and wife Katie Holmes; David Beckham and Posh Spice; and George W. and Laura Bush.

Among the late-night TV show hosts, New Rochelle native Jay Leno beat out North Salem resident David Letterman, among others — just like in the ratings. I’d prefer Letterman as a costume or as a talk show host, myself.

Crosswords, child stars, and celebrity splits

* Pick up your copy of Wordplay, out today on DVD. The documentary follows Pleasantville resident Will Shortz, the New York Times crossword puzzle wizard.

* Tyler James Williams is having a moment. The 14-year-old Yonkers native is starring in a new movie, Unaccompanied Minors, out December 8th and is also the star of the CW hit, Everybody Hates Chris.

* Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are getting divorced, making this the perfect time to ask the question that’s been bugging me for two years: Seriously, who the hell is Kevin Federline?
