Julia Louis-Dreyfus received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week — but someone forgot to hit spell-check before it was placed into the sidewalk.

A producer in CNN’s Los Angeles office noticed workers laying the star into the Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk. He also noticed that Dreyfus’ name was spelled “Julia Luis Dreyfus” — no “o” and no hyphen (a photo of the botched star is at CNN.com’s Marquee blog).

The chamber will also redo the star so that the rather obvious cut-and-paste job it did for the ceremony isn’t permanent.
Hey, it could’ve been worse. At least the chamber didn’t put “Nip” on the star.
