The Wrestler (Blu-ray)
All the praise that's been heaped on this moving tale of a broken-down pro wrestler struggling to remain relevant despite his failing body is deserved. (The Academy really snubbed this one in the Best Picture race.) The standout, of course, is Mickey Rourke, whose portrayal of Randy "The Ram" will have even the big boys searching for their hankies by the time this one's down for the count.
Rourke's masterful performance is beautifully matched by turns from Evan Rachel Wood as Randy's bitter estranged daughter and Marisa Tomei, whose aging stripper is — like Randy — struggling to stay in her own game. All of these characters are so vivid and real, and in the hands of Darren Aronofsky, they continually remind us that life must still be lived once the spotlight fades and the crowd stops cheering.
The bonus features on the release are scarce, but they pack a serious punch. In addition to ...

Andrea Roth, Rescue Me
FX's Rescue Me (Tuesdays at 10pm/ET) is only three episodes into its third season, but if current story lines are any indication, the boys of Ladder 62 are in for a doozy of a ride as the episodes rage on. As Tommy Gavin's no-nonsense ex-wife, Janet, Andrea Roth has made her mark as one of the few females who can show the firehouse crew who's boss. On a recent break from filming, Andrea clued in TVGuide.com on future shakeups, breakups and makeups, and spills the beans about her upcoming film role opposite Jason "He's So Sexy!" Statham.
Callie Thorne, Rescue Me
As FX gears up for the third season of its red-hot firefighter drama Rescue Me (premiering tonight at 10 pm/ET), count on Callie Thorne's Sheila to carouse and connive her way around the firehouse, causing a whole new set of problems for Denis Leary's Tommy. TVGuide.com chatted with Thorne to tease the new season (the first episode of which she had yet to see), find out what it's like hanging with the boys as well as guest stars Susan Sarandon and Marisa Tomei, and why she'd be willing to swing from
One Life to Live's Scott Bryce and Michael Easton team up
As the World Turns alum Scott Bryce — who romanced Meg Ryan's Betsy back in the '80s as the original Craig Montgomery — is coming back to daytime. But instead of returning to Oakdale, he's headed for One Life to Live's Llanview as police shrink Ed Crosby. He'll begin counseling broody cop John McBain (Michael Easton) on Jan. 4. Can't wait 'til 2006 for the details? Just read on....
TVGuide.com: Welcome back to soaps! We sure missed you.
Scott Bryce: Thanks! Well, it's a recurring role, so we'll see how long I'm around. They've scheduled eight episodes for me so far, so I'll be airing into February on OLTL.
TVGuide.com: Before we get to that, Hunt Block is a fine actor, but for many ATWT fans, you're the one and only Craig. His Craig was very different from your more lovable version.
Bryce: Aww... he was playing a different part with the same name. They needed to give him connecti
It's been 12 years since Marisa Tomei charmed moviegoers as the sassy, gum-snapping Mona Lisa Vito in My Cousin Vinny. While she'd played other roles before — including a memorable stint on As the World Turns — this comic turn earned her an Oscar and skyrocketed her onto Hollywood's A list. Any chance Tomei, who'll next appear in Alfie (opening Friday), would reunite with Vinny costar Joe Pesci for a sequel?
"We both want to do it," the 39-year-old Brooklyn native says, "but it is a matter of getting the script, and it is a whole studio thing. We enjoy each other so much and we have so much fun."
However, she doesn't think stepping back into Mona's heels would be a cakewalk. "It would be hard to revisit any character," she muses. "I remember what she feels like and the energy of it, but I don't remember specifics. It is a scary prospect, [but] I think it would be really good."
Of course, Tomei's reached
