Here's what's happening in pop culture:

• Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet Seamus Heaney has died at the age of 74. [BBC]

• Lindsay Lohan was a last-minute no-show at the Venice Film Festival, where she was expected to promote her drama "The Canyons." Director Paul Schrader commented that "for the last 16 months I've been hostage, by own choosing, to a very talented but unpredictable actress." [The Hollywood Reporter]

• This may be almost as stupid as CBS' idea for a medical show based on "The Wizard of Oz": Fox is developing a modern-day lawyer show inspired by "Les Miserables." [Vulture]
