EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, the Daily Edge rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom. Here’s The Dredge.

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is due to arrive in Dublin today to promote his latest film Argo, and no doubt hear ‘Howayeh Walter?’ shouted at him at least 17 times.

He’ll be in the Savoy Cinema on O’Connell Street tomorrow at 7pm to introduce the Irish premiere of the film, which is directed by Ben Affleck and also stars Alan Arkin and John Goodman.

Here at The Daily Edge we also received a report yesterday that Leonardo DiCaprio had been spotted in the city centre, on Mount Street to be exact. If Bryan Cranston and Leo end up hanging out together in Dublin we need to be there, preferably swapping phone numbers and generally becoming best mates.

That’s if it was in fact Leonardo DiCaprio. It may have been his Irish cousin Leonardo McCaprio. If you see either of them, let us know (tips@dailyedge.ie).

Cranston tweeted this morning that he’s just been in London, and met up with his Breaking Bad co star Aaron Paul, who’s there shooting a film.

Happy Birthday: Jedward celebrated their 21st birthday in Dublin last night with celeb guests like Louis Walsh and, er Linda Martin. The party was in No 37 on Dawson Street, and the twins obviously had a good time… they tweeted “Zzzzz Crazy time to Sleep” at around 5am this morning, the bold pups.

Terrible: That’s what JK Rowling thinks of 50 Shades of Grey, even though she hasn’t even read it. The Harry Potter author said her new book The Casual Vacancy also features people who have sex “but no one enjoys it”. Quick, to Easons with us! (Perez Hilton)
