For Adrien Brody, History's Houdini Is a Dream Come True

Adrien Brody might have already won an Oscar at 29 for his work in The Pianist, but for the actor, playing the legendary magician Harry Houdini for History's latest miniseries was a real bucket list moment.

"He was a very heroic person to me as a boy," Brody tells TVGuide.com. Much like the magician he idolized, Brody grew up in New York City the child of a Hungarian-Jewish mother and took up magic at an early age, performing at children's birthday parties as The Amazing Adrien. "What he represented to me then was a real bravery and a fearlessness," Brody says. "I think what magic represents is this ability to kind of defy the laws of nature."

Roush Review: How Super Was Bowl Night?

At least the Packers and Steelers brought it. If only the advertisers had fought as hard to be worthy of the Super Bowl hype.

In recent years, the cliché of saying "I only watch for the ads" has been supplanted by a new Super Bowl truism: The game on the field somehow upstaged the jousting from Madison Avenue. Even this year's most memorable and charming ad — a bit of wordless magic involving a child in a Darth Vader outfit tricked into thinking he had self-started the family Volkswagen — stole some of its own thunder by being leaked and disseminated online days before Sunday's showcase. For Volkswagen, this extra exposure is likely considered a win. It's the sort of ad you're happy to watch and re-watch — and online it even runs longer. But the surprise factor was gone by Sunday night, robbing the ad of its "event" status... read more

Super Bowl XLV: Darth Vader, Eminem and the Perils of "Reply All"

Darth Vader used "The Force" to power Volkswagen. A claymation version of Eminem shilled Chrysler and Lipton Brisk Iced Tea. And a poor employee unnecessarily put his tires to the test because of "reply all."

On the field, the Green Bay Packers bested the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, 31-25.

Off the field, game day was dominated by celebrities ranging from 16-year-old pop singer Justin Bieber to a confused Ozzy Osbourne, who teamed up for a Best Buy spot. "What's a Bieber?" Ozzy asked wife Sharon.

Eminem appeared in two very different Super Bowl commercials — a comedic spot for Lipton Brisk Iced Tea, and a more serious one for Chrysler, dedicated to the company and rapper's hometown of Detroit. The commercial helped boost... read more

A Passionate Plea for Justice!

Ok, I'll cut my usual critique and go right to begging! Well, maybe a little critique...but mostly pure, unapologetic begging.We're down to five and, as I see it, there are only two clear cut choices for the winner: my Helio and Mel B. If you don't agree I defy you to prove why your choice deserves to win. They are by far the best and most exciting. So this is my plea — let's keep these two safe! Get out there and vote.Don't get me wrong, I am a big Jennie Garth fan, but her performances tonight were a bit shaky and it makes me wonder whether she'd be able to handle the pressure of the finale. I definitely think she deserves a spot next week in the semi and if she gets better I think she should be the third spot for the finals.Cameron will be the one to go tomorrow night and I say that because I don't believe that Marie Osmond will actually lose. Side note — who put him in tan? That outfit looked like he should have been doing the Hustle and I thought his pants left very l... read more
