We last saw them together on screen in 1988 when they first brought the hilarity of Twins to fans. And now Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito are reportedly set to reteam as they prepare to resurrect their characters for a sequel. But this time they'll find another unlikely brother - in the form of comedian Eddie Murphy. Schwarzenegger, 64, played Julius Benedict in the first movie outing, who was conceived by test tube and went on a search for his long lost brother. And DeVito took on the role of his brother Vincent, who turned out to be much shorter and a crook after failing to get any of the good genes. Now the stars have reportedly started discussions to revisit the film, but with another surprise sibling thrown into the mix for the follow-up, according to Heat Vision Blog. Murphy is thought to be the favourite to take on the role of the third brother in the film, which still remains Schwarzenegger's highest-grossing comedy movie. And original director Ivan Reitman is also set for a return — but he'll just act as producer along with his Montecito Picture Co. partners Joe Medjuk, Tom Pollock and Ali Bell. The film now needs a director and a writer to take on the script. It will mark a screen comeback for Schwarzenegger after he left his post of California Governor last year. The former body builder made a brief comeback in 2010's The Expendables, and has a few movies in the pipeline. But his initial comeback stalled after he split from wife Maria Shriver last year, following news he had fathered a love child with a member of his house staff over a decade earlier.

Christina Aguilera slips into tights and spiky heels as she shares a courtside giggle with Christina Milian

She may have indulged her boyfriend by attending a basketball game, but Christina Aguilera discovered that girls can still have fun at sporting events. The 31-year-old blonde bombshell found a kindred spirit in fellow singer Christina Milian at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles last night. In addition to the same name and careers in music, the two girls were both a little overdressed to be sitting courtside. The Voice judge wore a snugly fitted black and white striped dress underneath a rocking leather jacket. She paired the ensemble with studded Christian Louboutin stilettos and her trademark red lipstick. Milian, meanwhile, was also dressed to the nines, though she at least looked somewhat appropriate for an NBA game. The 30-year-old wore bright pink jeggings and a sparkly, sequinned grey top. Her cotton candy T-strap heels looked rather hard to walk in, however, and her perfectly coiffed hair and bright green fingernails indicated she may have been more prepared for a girls' night out. The two ladies couldn't resist giggling together during the game, though their home team lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Getting stronger!

She is set to return to television screens every week on a new talent show this summer, so Kelly Clarkson is ensuring that she will look her best. The singer was pictured working up a sweat at a gym in Los Angeles yesterday. Kelly, 29, had clearly pushed herself to the limit, looking flushed as she returned to her car clutching a bottle of water. Kelly wore bright gym shorts with a sheer white T-shirt and bright green sports bra beneath. Her beloved dogs accompanied her to the gym. The Miss Independent singer has been announced as one of the stars of new ABC programme Duets, alongside Lionel Richie, Robin Thicke and Jennifer Nettles. Kelly, a talent show alumna herself, revealed: "What first drew me to the whole idea of duets was the fact that it is completely different — in the sense that we get to actually collaborate with the artists that we choose. I think it's really cool that we get to find talent that we really believe in and we get to perform with them and help mould someone into whatever they want to do with their career." Richie added: "Duets will give us the opportunity to hold these artists by the hand for a minute, and what I love about it is I will get to watch them grow." In perhaps a dig at Kelly's old show American Idol, Robin Thicke said: "You get to watch some of your favourite artists every week, not judge, but perform."
