Entertainment: Star Wars Creator Is Engaged

(NECN) – There’s new controversy over "Zero Dark Thirty," the movie about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Some members of Congress say the CIA misled the makers of the movie by telling them harsh interrogation methods helped track down bin Laden.

Waterboarding and similar techniques are shown in the film. A three-year Senate investigation showed those methods produced no useful intelligence.

A Boston author's effort to find his dog has gone viral. Dennis Lehane has been trying to find his beloved dog for more than a week.

He's offering to name a character in his next book after the person who finds Tessa. Lehane stopped by NECN to give us an update on the search.

And may the force be with him.

"Star Wars" creator George Lucas is engaged. A spokeswoman says the 68-year-old director is engaged to 43-year-old investment firm president Mellody Hobson. The two have dated for seven years.

Hobson serves as chairman of Dreamworks Animation and is a financial contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America."
