In Hollywood, the saying goes, the really creative folks are the accountants. Certainly the number-crunchers at 20th Century Fox, the studio distributing James Cameron’s costly and complex epic Avatar, will be kept busy over the coming months as box office grosses pour in and profit participators line up for their share. As ticket sales are tallied, and investors are repaid, the question will be, Was Avatar worth it?
Fox is near a deal to order more seasons of "American Idol" -- with or without its most popular judge, Simon Cowell.
Hollywood director James Cameron urged China to open its doors to more foreign films, arguing it would boost the local cinema industry after the WTO ruled Beijing was illegally restricting movie and other media imports.
Bradley, 34, who recently returned to Los Angeles from Canada where he's been shooting "The A-Team movie," headed out for a night on the town with Zellweger, the Daily Mail reports.
The lovebirds had a movie night at the Arclight Cinema in Hollywood, about a week after they were spotted shopping for a house together in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
While they've only been a couple since the summer, Cooper's pals reportedly say Zellweger, 40, has made quite the impression on the actor.
"Until Renee, Bradley had a reputation as a ladies' man and a heartbreaker, but he seems so happy with her," a source said. "They prefer to stay in rather than hang out at showbusiness parties, and he has already introduced her to his parents."
As reported in October by the News' Gatecrasher column, Zellweger was "very excited" to meet Cooper's parents in Philadelphia over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Rumors have also swirled that the couple is engaged.
"Renee is smitten with Bradley," another source told the Daily Mail. "She says she'd love to marry him and maybe start a family!"

"American Idol" judge Simon Cowell has decided to quit the top-rated TV talent show when his contract ends in 2010, according to a report in British tabloid The Sun, which would deal a blow to the Fox network.
Cowell, 50, has been with the TV juggernaut since the start of "American Idol" in 2002 but his contract expires after the end of Season 9, which starts in January and ends in May 2010, and in the past he has hinted at being bored with his role.

Jinkee Pacquiao welcomed YES! magazine in her Los Angeles home two days after the historical fight of her husband, Manny Pacquio, against Puerto Rican boxer Miguel Cotto last November.
While telling her side of the story about the alleged affair of her husband with sexy star Krista Ranillo, the wife of pound-for-pound boxing king toured the YES! team in their two-story, four-bedroom home in the upscale neighborhood of Hancock Park in Los Angeles, California.
Bought in March 2008, Jinkee said that she and Manny decided to purchase their own house so they wouldn't have to live in a hotel whenever the boxing champ has a fight in the States.
Although their Spanish-inspired house looked very elegant, Manny's wife said she did not mind too much about the brand while fixing its black-and-white themed interiors. When she shopped for their house fixtures, Jinkee just checked out on their look, functionality, and price. "Halo dito, e. May konting mamahalin, meron namang hindi pero bagay siya sa bahay," she said.

Eldest brother Kevin Jonas tied the knot with Danielle Deleasa on Saturday, according to People.
We're so happy that we're finally married and we were able to share the special moment with family, friends and loved ones," the couple told the mag.
The two reportedly wed in Long Island at a French-style chateau, with 400 guests in attendance, including fellow Disney star Demi Lovato.
And despite a New York blizzard, the nuptials moved forward as planned.
"The snow only made it look more like a winter wonderland," Michael Russo, a celebrity event planner who designed a "fairytale forest" for the event, told the mag. "Danielle looked like a princess. Kevin couldn't stop smiling."
The bride reportedly wore a strapless Vera Wang gown, as Kevin's brothers -- Joe and Nick -- stood by him as his best men.

They've vowed to download the Rage Against the Machine song "Killing in the Name" starting on Monday to make it the number-one single in the country on the Sunday before Christmas.
It might seem like a frivolous contest, but hundreds of thousands of pounds -- and a place in history -- are at stake.
A Christmas Number One enters the history books, exciting passion, disgust, joy and, yes, rage.
British music fans sometimes take the high road. They put the charity single "Do They Know It's Christmas?" at the top of the charts three times: First in 1984, then in 1989 and 2004 when anniversary editions came out.
Once upon a time, they got into the spirit of the season -- with "Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Mary's Boy Child," and "When a Child is Born" all topping the charts on Christmas Day in days of yore.
And often they just buy the songs they like, paying no heed to the season's mistletoe and wine. The Beatles topped the Christmas Day chart four times. The Spice Girls claimed the title three times. Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Westlife all had Christmas number ones.
So did Pink Floyd, with "Another Brick in the Wall." (Merry Christmas, everyone!)
Most infamous of all are the songs that drive you around the bend.
