Elizabeth Mitchell, Lost
It was a genuine, tender moment that all but made up for the somewhat silly "Stop the nerve gas!" antics that preceded it. Lost's Juliet, haunted by Ben's obsession, shared a rain-soaked lip-lock with Jack. Luckily for "Jacket" fans, more of the same seems to be on the horizon. Elizabeth Mitchell shares with us what's ahead, names the episode she deems "perfect" and talks about returning to work after the strike. (Lost airs Thursdays at 9 pm/ET on ABC.)
TVGuide.com: What was with that bait-and-switch you did for the TV Guide cover shoot? I saw you and Naveen [Andrews] and thought, "Oh, Sayid is going to pop up in Juliet's flashback or flash-forward" and... no such thing.
Elizabeth Mitchell: You know, it was more wishful thinking, wasn't it? I called it "a little fantasy episode."
TVGuide.com: It was a hot p
Jorge Garcia, Lost
In Lost's Season 3 finale, we learned that both Jack and Kate make it off the island (and that one of them grew a horrific beard). Then, in this season's premiere, Hurley was found to be alive and (kinda) well in the future, himself also a member of the "Oceanic Six." TVGuide.com spoke with Jorge Garcia about his good fortune to be among Lost's living.
TVGuide.com: After the season premiere, in every forum available to me, I was saying that you did your best Lost work in that episode.
Jorge Garcia: Oh, right on! Thank you very much.
TVGuide.com: Were you glad that the premiere really addressed Charlie's death, which naturally would have a drastic impact on the original castaways?
Garcia: I was. I'm glad it happened. Last season, you didn't get to see Hurley grieve for Libby until well into the sea
William Fichtner in The Amateurs
Before he ever strapped on (ultimately disgraced) FBI agent Alexander Mahone's holster, William Fichtner made a porn film... within the plot of The Amateurs, an engaging little indie that slipped in and out of theaters but is now available on DVD (shop Amazon). TVGuide.com invited Fichtner to reflect on the film's extremely fun shoot, as well as preview what's ahead on Fox's soon-to-conclude Prison Break.
TVGuide.com: I interviewed you a few years back, just as Invasion was about to... you know, vanish.
William Fichtner: Oh, yes, I do remember that! [Laughs]
Brian Austin Green, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Tonight at 9 pm/ET, Beverly Hills 90210 alum Brian Austin Green joins Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as... well, his role is extremely hush-hush. But I think I have a bead on it, so let's waste no more time and get this Q&A under way to find out what's what, shall we?
TVGuide.com: So, are we at a point yet where Brian Austin Green can discuss with any detail his Sarah Connor Chronicles character?
Brian Austin Green: No, no, not really. Not until after Monday's episode.
TVGuide.com: You son of a gun....
Green: I swear, it's not me. [Executive producer] Josh Friedman would wring my neck if I gave anything away. He lives the character and he's really excited about
Kendra Wilkinson, The Girls Next Door
E!'s The Girls Next Door are back from their Super Bowl break this Sunday at 10 pm/ET, and the setting this time around is Jamaica. What sort of trouble did Hef's three girlfriends get into down there? TVGuide.com invited Kendra Wilkinson to preview the tropical getaway, talk sports (of course) and reveal her fascination with a certain someone's derriere.
TVGuide.com: OK, truth be told, I have actually never seen any of the Girls Next Door naked. Am I the lesser for it?
Kendra Wilkinson: That's not really for me to say. Not everyone is going to be interested or curious to take a look, but I'm proud of the pictorials we've done for Playboy and I hope the people who do check them out like what they see.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about your recent trip to Boston for the Cha
Ted Danson, Damages
The first season of FX's outstanding Damages is now out on DVD (shop Amazon), ultimately raising the question for even more people: Will Arthur Frobisher live to snort more you-know-what off you-know-which-part of you-know-who? TVGuide.com asked Ted Danson to weigh in on his Golden Globe-nominated and deliciously villainous run... and whether it might continue.
TVGuide.com: First of all, congratulations on your Golden Globe nod. How does it feel to knock one out of the park on a brand-new cable drama?
Ted Danson: Your words, not mine, but I'll go along with it and say, "Fantastic!" It feels fantastic. I have to say that it almost feels like it rejuvenated my interest in acting. I had a ball. It was so beautif
Karl Urban, Comanche Moon
Premiering Sunday, Jan. 13, at 9 pm/ET, and then continuing Tuesday and Wednesday night, CBS' Comanche Moon miniseries — based on Larry McMurtry's best-selling Lonesome Dove prequel — follows Texas Rangers Woodrow F. Call (Karl Urban) and Augustus "Gus" McCrae (Steve Zahn) as they deal with the tensions of life in the Old West. TVGuide.com spoke with Urban (the Lord of the Rings films' Eomer) about his latest wild venture. Plus: The best sneak peek he could let slip regarding his role as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the much-anticipated Star Trek origin film.
TVGuide.com: What drew you to this project? Obviously, playing a young Tommy Lee Jones is not to be taken lightly.
Urban: Yeah, well I didn't approach it like that. That'd be a mistake. I based my performance on the lite
Tiffany Fallon, The Celebrity Apprentice
When it came to hawking streetcart wieners, Playboy Playmate of the Year Tiffany Fallon came away as the loser, and thus became the first famous face fired by Donald Trump on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice (Thursdays at 9 pm/ET). TVGuide.com grabbed a few minutes with Tiffany the morning after her televised tanking to talk about why she didn't hail Hugh Hefner, Ivanka-as-Playmate and the "big" news she planned to share... had she stuck around.
Tiffany Fallon: I'm still recovering from my "demise." [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: Awww. You did seem genuinely bummed riding away from Trump Tower in the Town Car.
Fallon: I was. I was surprised that I was so gracious because as soon as I got home, I got really upset, like, "I don't deserve to leave! I was just getting started!" The girls were just getting to know
Holly Madison, Girls Next Door
Is Hugh Hefner's No. 1 girlfriend (of three!) ready to go solo? Holly Madison talks about that, her birthday plans for this Sunday, the Playmate she'd like to date and much more in her latest Q&A with TVGuide.com. E!'s The Girls Next Door airs Sundays at 10 pm/ET.
TVGuide.com: Someone's got a birthday coming up on Sunday, right?
Holly Madison: Yes, I'm actually going to Disneyland with a bunch of Playmates today to celebrate. And on Sunday, we're going to show Moulin Rouge at the mansion and have a dinner night.
TVGuide.com: Will everyone be costumed up for the Moulin Rouge theme?
Holly: Maybe... I don't know. I'm letting people come wearing whatever they want.
TVGuide.com: Or nothing at all.
Holly: Yeah! [Laughs]
TVGuide.com: I understand there'
