There appears to be, at least in elementary and intermediate level English textbooks, an emphasis on using movie stars and other celebrities for instructional material.
A great website you may want to consider for celebrity material is Famous People Lessons.
You get a short story about a star's life (reading), an MP3 (listening), and exercises (writing).
So, you have already covered three of the four basic language skills.
You can easily slip in a discussion (speaking) to elicit the opinions of students about the person's life.
Now that is a complete lesson all from one website!
