Courteney Cox: Brangelina split 'not about' Jennifer Aniston

Courteney Cox wants people to leave the name of her close friend and former "Friends" cast mate Jennifer Aniston out of any discussion about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce.

Aniston and Pitt divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage.

When asked Tuesday about Pitt and Jolie's divorce and Aniston, Entertainment Tonight reports Cox told reporters, "I feel like we're exacerbating it by even talking about it," adding, "It's not about her."

Cox's remarks came after Aniston's husband, Justin Theroux, told Business Insider that it was "nonsense" that his wife's name was being mentioned.

Jolie filed for divorce Sept. 19.

Pitt and Jolie became close while filming 2005's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," prompting widespread speculation — consistently denied by the couple — that Jolie prompted Pitt's divorce from Aniston.

Chris Jackson, editor-in-chief of Random House's One World, announced the book in an interview with the entertainment site.

"It's amazing," Jackson said. "Everyone who's been reading the manuscript is in tears by the second chapter. It's not just about the mournful story about losing a child, but it's also how that moment ignited this global movement."

Martin died on Feb. 26, 2012, after he was shot by Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator in Sanford. Zimmerman called police to report that Martin appeared to be casing the neighborhood. A scuffle ensued and Martin was killed.

Public outcry led to Zimmerman's arrest on one count of murder six weeks after Martin's death. Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013.

Stage musical to be made from novel 'Madame Sousatzka'

A musical based on the novel that was turned into the Shirley MacLaine film "Madame Sousatzka" is hoping to make it to Broadway.

Producer Garth Drabinsky said Wednesday the show "Sousatzka" has songs by the composer-lyricist team of David Shire and Richard Maltby Jr., whose Broadway shows include 1996's "Big."

It will star Tony Award-winner Victoria Clark, Tony-nominee Montego Glover and Tony-winner Judy Kaye. Previews start in February at Toronto's Elgin Theatre.

Drabinsky, the producer of "Ragtime," served time in a Canadian prison for fraud.

The new musical charts the relationship between an eccentric London-based piano teacher and her pupil, a 15-year-old boy of exceptional talent.

The musical will be directed by Adrian Noble and has a book by Craig Lucas, who wrote the story for "An American in Paris."

NBC said Wednesday that Lin-Manuel Miranda will host "SNL" on Oct. 8. Miranda created and starred in the Broadway sensation about the first U.S. treasury secretary.
