(CNN) -- From the lifestyles of the young, rich and famous, to director Clint Eastwood's working-class murder mystery, here are five of the things people are talking about in entertainment.

"Born Rich" -- Jamie Johnson, a 23-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceuticals fortune, turns the camera on his wealthy peers -- kids with surnames like Trump and Bloomberg -- to examine the lifestyles of the young, rich and famous in "Born Rich," which debuts October 27 on HBO. Never one to miss a trend, MTV also debuts a new reality series called "Rich Girls" on October 28, which stars New York City teens Ally Hilfiger and Jamie Gleicher.

"Sylvia" -- Gwyneth Paltrow began filming "Sylvia" just weeks after her father Bruce Paltrow passed away and gives a hauntingly sad performance as the suicidal poet Sylvia Plath in this bio-pic that focuses on Plath's marriage to Ted Hughes. There's a good chance we may see Paltrow all weepy again onstage come Oscar night.

Sean Paul -- He's become the biggest reggae artist in the United States since Bob Marley. Sean Paul has brought dancehall into the mainstream, with his album "Dutty Rock." Hits like "Gimme the Light" and "Like Glue" have been in heavy rotation on MTV, and his blazing hot collaboration with Beyonce, "Baby Boy," topped the singles charts for weeks. Shake that thing.

"The Adventures of Indiana Jones: The Complete DVD Collection" -- Keep up with all the Joneses as the movies hit DVD for the first time October 21. The ultimate Indy box set includes remastered versions of all three Indiana Jones movies, plus a disc of behind-the-scenes interviews and footage. This should help tide fans over until the fourth installment -- which Spielberg is reportedly ready to start production on -- hits the big screen.

"Mystic River" -- Sean Penn, Kevin Bacon, Tim Robbins and Laurence Fishburne lead an all-star ensemble cast in this thriller about three men who grew up together in a working-class Boston neighborhood and the way in which that shared history may have led to a murder. Director Clint Eastwood goes a bit heavy on the melodrama at times as he tries to negotiate all the story's twists and turns, but the performances, particularly Penn's, are murderously good.
