MICHAEL McKEAN: Actor Michael McKean, who was hit by a car last week while walking in New York, says he has been discharged from St. Luke's Hospital.

McKean, 64, broke his leg and suffered various bumps and bruises in the mishap, then underwent surgery and remained hospitalized until Thursday when TMZ said he left for rehabilitation at Roosevelt Hospital.

"I am heading into week two with renewed admiration for New York City's Emergency Medical Service staff, the NYPD, the staff of St. Luke's Hospital ... and all those with problems much greater than my own," McKean said in a statement Thursday.

The actor's injuries forced him to drop out of the Broadway revival of "Gore Vidal's The Best Man."

McKean is best known for his work in the films "This is Spinal Tap," "Best in Show" and "For Your Consideration," as well as TV's "Laverne & Shirley."

He and his wife, Annette O'Toole, were nominated for an Original Song Oscar in 2003 for "A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow" from "A Mighty Wind."


MATTHEW FOX: Cleveland bus driver has dropped her lawsuit against Matthew Fox, the TV actor she accused of assaulting her while he was drunk, EW.com said.

Heather Bormann alleged the former "Lost" and "Party of Five" star repeatedly hit her in the chest and crotch when she prevented him from boarding the private charter bus she was driving for a bachelor party last August. However, prosecutors declined to file criminal charges against Fox.

EW.com said Bormann's attorney withdrew from the case in April, stating his client "intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information," and neglected to pay his out-of-pocket expenses.

Fox was arrested in Oregon last month for allegedly driving while intoxicated.


'RED TAILS:' "Red Tails," a World War II action picture starring Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard, is the top-selling DVD in the United States, Rentrak said.

The No. 1 DVD and Blu-ray rental for the week ended May 26 is "This Means War."

"The Grey" is No. 2, "Chronicle" is No. 3, "Red Tails" is No. 4, "The Woman in Black" is No. 5, "Contraband" is No. 6, "One For the Money" is No. 7, "The Vow" is No. 8, "The Devil Inside" is No. 9 and "Haywire" is No. 10.


CARLY RAE JEPSEN: Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen takes the stage with Justin Bieber as a special guest on his North American "Believe" concert tour, Interscope Records said.

Presented by AEG Live, the tour will kick off Sept. 29 in Glendale, Ariz., and will travel to more than 45 cities before wrapping up in Miami Jan. 26.

Jepsen is famous for her hit song "Call Me Maybe," which has sold more than 2 million copies and hit No. 1 on the iTunes Singles chart, her record label said.
