Elizabeth Taylor Ends the Writers' Strike

Elizabeth Taylor by Steve Granitz/WireImage.com

At least for a couple of hours. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Taylor asked the Writers Guild to give up picketing at Paramount Pictures on Dec. 1 — World AIDS Day — when she gives a benefit performance of Love Letters opposite James Earl Jones, so that she and her guests could come in without feeling guilty. "[The Guild has] shown great humanity, empathy and courage by allowing our little evening to move forward," the Butterfield 8 knockout/original Mama Cassadine said in a statement. And I'm inclined to agree. Well, maybe not about the "courage" so much. But it was still a nice thing to do. — Ben Katner read more

An Outsider Infiltrates 24's CTU

C.Thomas Howell on 24

If C. Thomas Howell's recent MIA status frustrates those who've had to rely on the USA network to air such memorable '80s fare as The Outsiders, Red Dawn and Soul Man, fear not. The drought has ended. During tonight's two-hour 24 "event" (starting at 8 pm/ET), the former Greaser makes his first of a handful of appearances as Barry Landes, a therapist whose ties to Jack Bauer are, shall we say, "complicated." As a result of this casting coup, longtime fans can finally allow their obsession to continue into the 21st century. As TVGuide.com uncovered in our interview with Howell, there's a lot more to him than what all those "Stay gold, Pony!" lobbyists would like us to believe. For starters, he read more

Renee Zellweger has been ...

Glitter: Renée Zellweger in Chicago

Question: Renee Zellweger has been nominated for an Oscar three years in a row. Can you tell me how many other times this has happened? Has anyone ever pulled it off more than three times in a row? Thanks!Answer: William Hurt and Russell Crowe have both been nominated for best actor three times in a row, Hurt for Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), Children of a Lesser God (1986) and Broadcast News (1987) — he won for Kiss of the Spider Woman — and Crowe for The Insider (1999), Gladiator (2000) and A Beautiful Mind (2001). Crowe won for Gladiator. And just for the record, Zellweger's three-in-a-row nominations were for Bridget Jones's Diary (2001), Chicago (2002) and Cold Mountain (2003); the third time was the lucky one for her. In the past, Elizabeth Ta read more

Are ensemble casts ever ...

Question: Are ensemble casts ever recognized with an Oscar that's designed especially for a group of actors who worked really well together? Or does someone always have to be singled out as a lead or supporting player? Answer: Although the SAG Awards, which are given by the Screen Actors Guild, regularly honor ensembles, the Academy Awards only recognize individuals. But there have been instances in which all the actors with speaking roles are nominated. They include Sleuth (1972) — which, to be fair, has only two speaking roles, but both Michael Caine and Sir Laurence Olivier were nominated in the best-actor category — and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). Virginia W read more

Another episode that made you...

Another episode that made you think of your parents. Last week it was "Would you save your alcoholic father by giving him your liver even though he continually beat up your mother?" Tonight it was "Would you rather have your mother die a fairly quick death due to liver cancer, or die a much slower way while not recognizing you due to Alzheimer's disease?" I guess I don't blame Meredith for being disappointed when she found out her mother's cancer was benign rather than malignant. I can't imagine going through life if my mom didn't know who I was. A friend of mine is going through just that, and she's told me how difficult it's been, so if any of you are in the same boat, my thoughts are with you. Kate Burton does a phenomenal job as Ellis Grey, but I feel rather old every time I see her. I remember when I was a child that the leading man and woman of Hollywood were Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Bu read more
