When it comes to dressing up for Halloween, Adrian Pasdar's son has his own hero, Luke Skywalker. What does this mean for Pasdar? "I'll be dressing up as Han Solo." Pasdar doesn't have to work off imagination when pulling together his costume. He's met the real Han Solo, actor Harrison Ford. In fact, he recently sent a message to Ford on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. "One of the makeup techs I was working with had to go over and do contact lens stuff for Harrison Ford," he recounts. "As a joke, I said, 'Tell Harrison he owes me five dollars and I haven't forgotten about it.'" The makeup staffer made good on the promise to deliver the missive and Pasdar got word back that Ford was sending him the five dollars. As for the fiver, "I haven't gotten it yet," reports Pasdar. "It's supposed to be on its way." — Bekah Wright read more

George Lucas Hails Maverick Filmmakers, Teases Indy 4

George Lucas

George Lucas is feeling good about television. In his life post-Star Wars franchise, the legendary writer, director, producer, special-effects czar and mega-mogul is still embracing his legacy — the far-far-away galaxy he created for six films that changed the cinematic universe and became a part of world pop culture. But now a new medium will bear the message. In a conversation with TV Guide executive editor Steve Sonsky that began with a discussion of Fog City Mavericks, a Starz documentary (premiering Monday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET) about the history of San Francisco-based filmmakers like himself, Francis Ford Coppola and Clint Eastwood, Lucas also held forth on the status of his two read more

Sean Connery Has Lost His Indiana Jones

The fourth (and final, whispers Harrison Ford's back) Indiana Jones film, scheduled to start shooting this month, will not revisit the father-son relationship introduced in Last Crusade, if only because Sean Connery simply isn't up to it. "I thought long and hard about it, and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement, it would have been an Indiana Jones film," the 76-year-old actor says in a statement. "I love working with Steven [Spielberg] and George [Lucas], and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison as my son. But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun."And just like that, craft services' Metamucil budget gets reduced by half. read more

At the Movies: Cate Blanchett Joins Indy's Crusade

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Cate Blanchett is in talks to fill a starring role in the fourth Indiana Jones film. If she plays her cards right, she could be the next Alison Doody, I think.... French horror helmer Alexandre Aja (2006's The Hills Have Eyes) has signed on to write-direct a remake of 1978's Piranha, which he recalls as "the ultimate popcorn movie that pits beer-soaked, sunburned spring breakers against killer, bloodthirsty animals." OK, when you put it like that.... Raven-Symone and Martin Lawrence are a daughter and her overprotective policeman father touring potential universities in College Road Trip. read more

Script OK'd for "Best" Indiana Jones Yet, to Film in '07

During a break from preparing for his duties as grand marshal of Monday's Rose Parade, George Lucas told the Associated Press that he and Steven Spielberg recently finalized the script for the fourth Indiana Jones entry, to film in 2007 and hit theaters in May 2008 — some 19 years after Last Crusade. Said the filmmaker, "It's going to be fantastic... the best one yet." Though mum on plot details, Lucas teased Indy 4 as a "character piece" filled with "very interesting mysteries," adding, "It's going to be really cool" — if only due to all the ice packs Harrison Ford, 64, will have on hand. read more

ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS "HURRY"

"Steven Spielberg and I now have a script in hand that we both like," the actor tells a German magazine. "I believe that we can start with the filming soon." The working title: "Indiana Jones and the Perils of Medicare." read more

We Debrief 24's Chloe and Edgar

Mary Lynn Rajskub and Louis Lombardi, 24

Chloe and Edgar are the yin and yang of Fox's 24 (Mondays at 9 pm/ET). She's a hottie who kicks butt out in the field. He's an aerobically challenged techie who never leaves his computer. But CTU's loyal systems analysts keep saving the world, which is why Mary Lynn Rajskub and Louis Lombardi think they have the coolest characters on the show. When she's not shooting 24, Rajskub hangs with Fiona Apple and makes movies (most recently, the Harrison Ford thriller Firewall). Lombardi, an alum of The Sopranos, prefers homier pursuits. "I have the new Xbox," he says. "Come to my house and I'll play you for money." Here read more
