Eastwick: The Witches' New Mystery Man is Very Bad

Paul Gross, Rebecca Romijn

If you never saw the 1987 movie The Witches of Eastwick, starring Jack Nicholson, or read the John Updike novel, ABC is offering a fresh rendition with Eastwick.

Set in the fictional Rhode Island town of Eastwick, ABC's new series follows three women on the cusp of discovering that they're more powerful than they ever dreamed. Their quirky acts of persuasion, premonition and, let's just say, tapping into Mother Earth, bring the mysterious Darryl to town.

VIDEO: Meet the Cast of Eastwick

While Paul Gross has some Nicholson-sized shoes to fill, his version of Darryl Van Horne may be just as evil, if not more. Gross stars opposite Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman.

How will Darryl seduce the lovely ladies of Eastwick?

Jack Supports Hill

At first we thought there was no way this video was legit and that some YouTuber with too much downtime pieced it all together. But after watching a montage of various movie clips of Jack Nicholson (including Batman, The Shining, and A Few Good Men), the video transitions to a shot of Jack himself approving the message that Hillary is our girl. Will Jack’s endorsement be enough to give her the edge she needs? We’ll have a few more answers come early Wednesday morning after Ohio and Texas cast their ballots on Tuesday! But, of course, we can’t resist the response video that popped up shortly after:Your take: Which video do you think was pieced together better? read more

Heath Ledger: Olsen Twin Called Before 911; Plus, Jack Nicholson's Warning

Heath Ledger by J. Vespa/WireImage.com

As police await toxicology reports that could shed light on Heath Ledger's cause of death in a way the autopsy report couldn't, new details have surfaced on how Weeds' star Mary-Kate Olsen figures into this tragic tale. As detailed in a timeline released by the NYPD, the masseuse who discovered Ledger's lifeless body first speed-dialed Olsen, a friend of Ledger's, because the employee "knows that when something goes bad, you call insiders first to see how to handle things," a source tells the New York Daily News.As Olsen dispatched her security team to Ledger's residence, the masseuse tried to rouse the actor. When she couldn't, she phoned Olsen back to say she was alerting 911.As previously reported, no illegal drugs were found on the premises, and a rolled-up $20 bill discovered near Ledger's body tested clean of drug residue. Six prescription medications recovered from the scene included pills to treat insomnia and anxiety, and an antihistamine.Elsewhere, Jack Nicholson — wh... read more

A Likable Host for a Long, Low-Key Oscars

The one thing I realized as Oscar night droned on and on for nearly four hours: If I ever had to choose someone to be stranded with for hours on end (say, like those poor Jet Blue passengers a few weeks ago), it would have to be Ellen DeGeneres.Keeping her cool, and her genuine aura of chipper goodwill, throughout three costume changes (in suits from red velvet to all-white to royal blue) and what seemed once again like an overindulgent excess of movie montages (we definitely could have done without Michael Mann’s fuzzy survey of cinematic American history), Ellen was welcome nearly every time she popped up. Offering a spec script to Martin Scorsese, directing Steven Spielberg on how to take her photo with Clint Eastwood, asking the megastars in the front row to lift their legs as she vacuumed the Kodak past midnight (ET), while informing us that Helen Mirren had just asked for a rum and coke (sounded pretty good to me at the time), Ellen did her darndest to deflate the bloat a... read more

Has Mrs. Huff Had Enough?

Paget Brewster, Huff

On Showtime's Huff (Sundays at 10 pm/ET), Paget Brewster plays the forlorn and fed-up wife of Hank Azaria's sad-sack psychiatrist. Could she be playing someone more different from the hottie Friends' Chandler stole from Joey? TVGuide.com spoke to the actress about her Huffing and puffing, read more

I've recently heard the quote ...

Question: I've recently heard the quote "Your mother, your daughter" on both Gilmore Girls and Grey's Anatomy. I read somewhere that it was from a movie, but I can't remember which one. Can you help me out?


Answer: The line is actually "My daughter, my sister, my daughter, my sister, my daughter," and while I couldn't swear that it has cropped up in Grey's Anatomy, Lorelai definitely said it on Gilmore Girls. It's from Chinatown (1974), and [SPOILER ALERT] it's from the scene in which detective Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) finally shakes from treacherous, near-hysterical heiress Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) the awful secret that has blighted her life: father-daughter incest. Mulwray's teenaged daughter i read more

Monk I solved tonight's mystery...

MonkI solved tonight's mystery at precisely 10:07 pm, a new record for me. This was based on my previously outlined theory: recognizable guest star — in this case Nicky Katt — equals guilty. But that meant I could sit back and enjoy the show, which was particularly amusing tonight, despite the serious story line about Stottlemeyer's faltering marriage. Stottlemeyer's stint in anger-management class had more laughs than that awful Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler flick. When the teacher gave him a yo-yo because "no one can stay mad when they play with a yo-yo," I thought Stottlemeyer was going to find a way to use it as a deadly weapon. Other favorite gags included Monk going nuts because the loose change in a fountain equaled $10.03, and the homeless guy whose pet read more

Supernatural Don't even get me...

SupernaturalDon't even get me started on the fact that after a six-week hiatus and only two original episodes, WB — nay, the future CW — throws a repeat on us. Trying to sidestep the two-hour juggernaut that is American Idol, perhaps? Who knows. Luckily, this is a really good Supernatural. It's the one where Sam and Dean investigate a haunted asylum in Rockford, Ill. The brotherly dysfunction really kicks in big time with Dean exhibiting some major daddy issues. And Sam makes it his business to alert Dean to the fact that his blind faith in his pops is way not cool, plus he's sick and tired of BossyDean, so back off. Love Dean's alias: Nigel Tufnel. Although, I admit, it took me more than just a little while to realize that Nigel read more
