A series of quick hits that are all on the gossipy side of news articles, so let’s just bundle them up for your reading enjoyment.

We start, as we must, with the news that Frat Pack friends Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are engaged. According to published reports, Theroux popped the question on Friday - his birthday. ”Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” Theroux’s rep told People. The couple met on the set of Wanderlust.

Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller

It’s summer time, which means it’s time for the Stiller family to head off to Kauai for a little fun in the sun. As such, we are contractually obligated to point you to some photos of Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor looking fit and tan on the beach. Some fun shots of Stiller in the waves and Taylor looking great in a bikini.

American Cinematheque said that it would present Ben Stiller the organization’s award for career achievement. The presentation will take place on November 15 in Beverly Hills.

More serious is the lawsuit filed by Nicholas Malcolmson who claims he was booted out of a resort in Bora Bora so that the Starwood Resorts hotel could shut down for filming of Couples Retreat. Malcolmson claims he was given just six-weeks notice to find other accomodations for his honeymoon and that his deposit was never returned. The suit also targets NBC Universal, parent company of Universal Pictures, for allegedly “aiding and abetting the commission of a fraud.” Vince Vaughn’s publicist declined to comment.

We end on a happier note with the news that Jack Black helped his Tenacious D partner Kyle Gass get clean from drugs. The D’s guitarist was eating pot brownies according to an interview with the Sunday Times. The Frat Pack star hired a private jet to shuttle his buddy to rehab in Utah.

Gass reveals it was Black who “saved me from the abyss” when his behavior flew “out of control,” telling The Sunday Times Magazine, “I went insane last year. I had to be sent away to the loony hatch. Just rehab. I was eating large amounts of marijuana in brownies… Every day…

“I’d send my assistant to the store. We have stores where you can buy it. It’s crazy. I had a desperate need to be Van Gogh or something. Some tremendous artist. Jack’s so successful, what’s wrong with me, why isn’t this working for me? I hated myself.”
