Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan remains hospitalized in Sydney after sustaining a back injury while moving furniture. The 63-year-old Aussie actor is expected to be back on his feet in a few weeks.
Nothing against Charmed starlet Holly Marie Combs, but her Piper Halliwell has been less than charming lately. In fact, if we weren't so polite, we'd call this character something that only rhymes with witch. Is she still sad about Prue's (Shannen Doherty) demise? Or stressed out by the demons trying to kill her other sisters in sorcery week after week? Here, TV Guide Online asks Brian Krause who plays Piper's saintly hubby, Leo why his TV wife is such a damn shrew.
"Well, she's having a baby," he grins. Yeah, but this Wiccan witch was sportin' a snappish, abrasive 'tude well before she got preggers. "Before that?" Krause nervously replies. "I don't know. Boy, I don't know!"
When Elijah Wood says he's been blessed, we're inclined to agree with him. The well-adjusted 21-year-old who's back in theaters Dec. 18 with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers has gracefully avoided the troubled child actor path. And better still, when his own epic trilogy completes its run (the final installment, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, opens Dec. 17, 2003), it seems unlikely that the versatile thesp will follow Mark Hamill's footsteps to has-beendom.
"I think I'll always be associated with [LOTR]... but that's an asset as long as it's not the only thing I'm known for," says Frodo Baggins's portrayer, who first gained res
NBC's Ed is about to turn viewers into weight watchers. In September, Michael Genadry, who plays heavyweight high schooler Mark Vanacore, underwent gastric bypass surgery, and already he's dropped 70 pounds. Now, on Tuesday's episode (airing 8 pm/ET), the 24-year-old's character will submit to the procedure, which essentially reduces the size of one's stomach. "I started off over 450, and now I'm under 400," Genadry says proudly. "I don't see a difference, but everyone around me does."
Count exec producers Jon Beckerman and Rob Burnette among that number. So amazed were they by Genadry's transformation that they felt obliged to incorporate it into Mark's story. "We didn't want to mislead the audience [into thinking] that it would be possible for somebody like Michael to lose such a large amount of weight so quickly," explains Beckerman. "If we just portrayed this as if he went on Weight Watchers, w
Before signing on to Die Another Day, Pierce Brosnan debated whether he cared to wear James Bond's tux for a fourth time. Names of potential Bonds were furiously bandied about, with many pegging Brit actor Rupert Everett as the next 007. However, MGM and Day director Lee Tamahori reportedly shied away from casting an openly homosexual man in the role. Did they fear moviegoers who best know Everett as Julia's charming gay pal in My Best Friend's Wedding would refuse to accept him as Ian Fleming's famously womani
We don't want to jinx Eric Close, but it looks like the Without A Trace star finally is free of that pesky Nielsen curse. This FBI missing persons drama is his seventh TV series, and it's holding steadily in second place against ER on Thursday nights. Thus, it's faring far better than his other six shows none of which survived past season one. In his latest tête à tête with TV Guide Online, the deliriously sweet smell of success has Close spewing clichés left and right!
"Patience is a virtue," he beams. "Good things come to those who wait. None of [my other shows] were bad projects. People liked them. They had followings, but there are so many factors that go into a show's [success], and I think one of the biggest things that's helping us is our timeslo
Actress Paula Marshall is hiding something. While she stars on NBC's comedy Hidden Hills as a wife and mother in complete control over a chaotic suburban household she's no June Cleaver. "Except for the cool clothes, my real life is night and day," admits the 38-year-old. "I'm not married and have no children, so I'm acting my butt off!"
But the Rockville, Md. native is used to stretching away from her own reality. She's been a romance counselor on the short-lived, but critically-acclaimed Cupid; a private eye on David E. Kelly's Snoops; and an NYU student reporter who "outs" George and Jerry in a classic Seinfeld episode. Not that there's anything wrong with that. "I've been on a lot of shows, and I don't plan on going anywhere," she chuckles. "I want to star in The
So you thought Tori Spelling's TV career ended when her decade-long stint on Beverly Hills, 90210 did? Uh-uh, kids. Now, she's signed on to star in and produce her own NBC sitcom pilot. A script for the as-yet-untitled comedy is even being penned by Roseanne and Ellen scribe Lawrence Broch. But surely her TV producer papa, Aaron Spelling, must be involved somehow...
"Must be?!" protests Mr. Spelling. "It's not one of my shows, 'cause of just what you said. When you say it must be, that must mean she can't work for anybody else 'cause she can't get a job and that's just not true. Oh boy! No, no, no, she won't work for me. I don't blame her. She takes so much flak, golly."
How does he feel about Tori headlining her own TV gig sans Daddy? "It's hard for a father to say this," he says,
As 24 fans discovered last night, President Palmer's duplicitous ex-wife Sherry is back in her husband's crosshairs. And making matters worse, TV's Lady Macbeth arrived on the scene armed with something far more unnerving than a new ulterior motive: a killer makeover.
As the character's portrayer, Penny Johnson Jerald, tells TV Guide Online, looking good is the best revenge. "If my man dropped me, I would certainly want to look better than I did last year," laughs the actress, who says she worked with 24's hair and make-up experts to create a more sophisticated, sexy "less presidential-looking" Sherry. "I was really careful about the hair, because last year, Sherry had very '80s hair. So, I decided to go with very '90s hair very straight and bouncy. I also wanted to soften the eyes, the face, not make her so hard looking.
"She's a divorcée now," a
