Dana Edelson/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Netflix has released a trailer for A Very Murray Christmas, its upcoming Christmas special starring Bill Murray set to debut in December.

The 24-second trailer, which is clearly a nod to his role in Lost in Translation, features a signature shrug from the actor while he dons a pair of headband antlers and gazes glumly out a Carlyle Hotel window at the New York City skyline -- all set to a score of jazz piano.

It's no coincidence that the trailer looks like the hit 2003 film. The special reunites the actor with Sofia Coppola, who last directed Murray in Lost in Translation, for which he earned his first Oscar nomination of his career.

A Very Murray Christmas pays tribute to the classic variety show and features Murray as the host, according to Netflix.

In the special, a snowstorm hits New York City and Murray worries that none of his guests will be able to make the trek, according to Netflix. But with a combination of divine luck and perseverance, he ends up partying the night away with countless A-list guests at The Carlyle Hotel.

The cast of partiers includes highly notable names, including George Clooney, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus, Jason Schwartzman, Rashida Jones and more.

Virginia Sherwood/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Blythe Danner doesn't go online. One reason? It would be tough for her to read criticisms of her daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow.

"I don't like to read stuff. I don't even know what they write," she told Vulture. "I'm told, but it's hurtful to see things written about your baby."

Danner added that she struggles with making "my brain and my fingers cooperate with the text. I'm just a mess."

While she believes she belongs in "another era," she does break her self-imposed Internet ban to read Paltrow's lifestyle website, Goop.

"I'm a devoted mother. That's the one thing I know how to do," she said. "She's a very bright, brilliant girl, my girl. She's really handled all of her life quite well. She's got a thick skin, which we all have to have in this business."

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) -- Kim Kardashian is a reality star, clothing designer and a book author -- and is now firing back at her critics who say her career is easy.

"I get more fed up with questions like -- I was traveling recently and I was doing a press day and people were like, 'How do you feel when people say what do you do?' And I'm like, I'm here working aren't I? Like, I'm here to promote something," she told Access Hollywood.

Kim fires back at those people: "I said, 'Hey why don't you do this -- tell someone else that you think can do it. Tell them to do everything that I've done in my career and see if they end up where I'm at. Try it. Just try it. I dare you."

Kardashian also said she ignores most of the criticisms online, but she does have her boundaries. "I will block someone if they say something negative about my daughter," she said.

David Welker/TLC(NEW YORK) -- In the wake of Josh Duggar admitting that he inappropriately touched minors several years ago as a teenager, TLC has pulled the show in which he's featured with his large family, 19 Kids and Counting.

In a statement to ABC News, the cable network said: "Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air. We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."

The firestorm started when In Touch magazine reported that Duggar was investigated in 2006 for alleged misconduct starting when he was 14 years old.

Duggars' representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but in a statement first provided to People magazine and then posted to Facebook, Josh admitted, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. ...I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged."

Josh, now 27, admitted he told his family, including his wife Anna, of his actions and received counseling.

People magazine added that Josh has now resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.
