"HERCULES" - DWAYNE JOHNSON
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwayne Johnson remembers the first time he ever encountered the idea of Hercules. He was five years old and he saw a poster of Steve Reeves as Hercules breaking chains from pillars. Johnson says at the time, he didn't know anything about the myth of Hercules. He just thought it was a cool picture. Now it's his turn to bring the myth to life. Johnson plays a modern version in "Hercules," which opens today.
Dwayne Johnson says he never thought Hercules should be a young man.

ALEC BALDWIN ADMONISHED TO "BE A GOOD BOY"
NEW YORK (AP) -- It sounded more like a warning a parent might give a wayward child -- not something a judge would say to a grown man. But that's the admonition Alec Baldwin got from a judge in New York City yesterday. The actor was in court to face charges of mouthing off at police who stopped him while riding a bike. After examining the allegations against him, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge John DeLury told Baldwin: "looks like you have a short fuse." Baldwin repeatedly said he'd pay the fine, but the judge said he only wanted the actor to apology. The judge set the case to be dismissed if Baldwin stays out of trouble for six months. Speaking to the actor with his given name, DeLury asked Baldwin: "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?" Baldwin responded: "Sure, sure" -- then the judge told him: "Be a good boy from now on. Have a good day!" before adjourning the case.
SHIA LaBEOUF SEEKS RESOLUTION OF CASE
NEW YORK (AP) -- Shia LeBeouf has another court date set for September in an incident in which he's accused of acting out while in the audience of a Broadway play last month. The actor's lawyer and prosecutors are trying to hash out a settlement over the incident in which LeBeouf lit cigarettes, yelled at actors onstage and cursed security guards. As he was ushered out of the theater, he hollered: "Do you know who I am." LeBeouf's publicist says the episode stemmed from an alcohol problem -- and that the actor has since gotten treatment.
