U-M stars at Tony Awards

The University of Michigan has a reputation for producing Broadway talent, so it should come as no surprise that four alums will be participating in Sunday's Tony Awards ceremony, which will be broadcast at 8 p.m. on CBS. One-time "Glee" star Darren Criss (2009), now headlining in the New York revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," will co-host the program's "Live from the Red Carpet" segment. Ashley Park (2013), currently playing Tuptim in "The King and I," will perform during the broadcast, while alumni-producers Richard Winkler (1970) and Matthew Rego (1992) are both up for awards.

Sir Harry cops a feel

Prince Harry, 30 — just knighted Thursday by his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 89 — was spotted after a polo match Sunday with his hand familiarly on the knee of English beauty Jenna Coleman, 29, who stars in the BBC series "Doctor Who." London's newspaper The Sun ran a picture of the cozy pair and quoted an unnamed observer who said, "It was a very flirty, very tactile encounter. She was leaning into him and he had his hand on her knee. From their body language it looked like they were really enjoying each other's company." We can only hope.

Amanda's back

The missing-in-action Amanda Bynes, 29, was spotted Wednesday in public for the first time since late winter, ducking into a West Hollywood restaurant. The former child star, who spent time in a psychiatric hospital last fall, was reportedly dining with a life coach, according to TMZ.com. After several troubled years, Bynes had seemed like she was getting her life back together — until landing in the psych facility in October following a string of erratic behaviors.

A girl for Keira

This just in — "The Imitation Game" star Keira Knightley, 30, gave birth to a baby girl sometime last month, according to People magazine, which did not specify the actual date. This is the first child for the actress and musician-hubby James Righton, 31. Knightley held off on commenting about her pregnancy until it was visible to the entire world, but on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, she joked that the great thing about being with child was that you're required to keep snacks close at hand at all times.
