Now that she's an Oscar winner, Octavia Spencer, is switching careers!
Don't worry, she's not done with acting. Howeves, The Help star revealed that she will be taking some extra time to write a children's book series! Octavia gushed:
"They’re books about sleuthing. I’m a detective by nature. I have one book written and two that are already being mapped out."
Her inspiration? Spencer says:
"I’m a huge forensics person. I watch all the case study shows. I love them.”

Today Lego and Warner Bros. Consumer Products unveiled their newest toy line: Lord of the Rings Legos!
This is prefect, cause nerds LOVE passing their obsessions onto their offspring AND miniatures!
Good new for film geeks too! The toys are based off the popular Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings film trilogy. We're sure a few books will complain about the film's influence over the toy's look, and we're sure the rich toy company is all torn up about it.
Lego has the rights to make toys based off all the past and upcoming film adaptations of the J.R.R. Tolkien classics.
That means we can look forward to toddlers swallowing Legos styled after the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again movies in the near future!
