Here's how pop culture and literature have been intersecting lately ...

  • Ben Stiller will play writer Norman Mailer in the movie Belly of The Beast, about Mailer's connection with a convict whose memoir he helped publish (Deadline).

  • Here's a real mashup: Singer Michael McDonald has written a memoir with the help of actor/comedian Paul Reiser; What a Fool Believes comes out May 21 (The New York Times).

  • The first new movie based on J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings universe is set to come out sometime in 2026; Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum will be directed by and star Andy Serkis (The Verge).

  • How Ali Sethi, author of the novel The Wish Maker, also became a pop star (The New York Times).
