Justin Bartha on "New Normal" Finale

Justin Bartha never set out to make a political statement when signing on to play a gay, expectant father on NBC's "The New Normal" but he thinks "it's interesting that television really has swayed the conversation." The one-hour Season Finale airs on Tuesday at 9/8c on NBC.

Beyonce is going to do a "Great" job covering an Amy Winehouse hit.

E! News exclusively revealed Monday that the "Single Ladies" hitmaker has teamed up with Andre 3000 for a duet of the late singer's "Back to Black" for the soundtrack of the upcoming remake of "The Great Gatsby."

Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack, which will be released by Interscope Records. "It's a very different take on 'Back to Black,'" a record company said.

Hot! Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan's "Gatsby" chemistry

This is Beyonce and Andre 3000 second time working together. They first collaborated on Bey's 2011 single, "Party."

The new flick, directed by Baz Luhrman, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. Originally set to be in theaters last Christmas, the release was pushed to this May.

"Gatsby" will have its world premiere as the opening night film of the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.
