Sorry boys, Charlize Theron won't be walking down the aisle...ever.
The 35-year-old actress, who dated Stuart Townsend for nearly a decade before they split, says she'd rather have a long-term relationship than the actual wedding. Marriage was "never something that...
Sam Mendes, Kate Winslet
For many best-actress Oscar winners, the award has been a bad-luck charm for matters of the heart. More than a handful of leading ladies have parted ways with their significant others after snagging a statuette — from the Golden Age of Hollywood (Bette Davis and first husband Harmon Nelson) to the '70s (Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould) to the turn of the millennium (Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria). In the past week, Kate Winslet split from Sam Mendes, while Jesse James has apologized to his wife, 2009 Academy Award best-actress winner Sandra Bullock, after reports of infidelity surfaced. The future of Bullock and James' relationship is unclear, but the so-called "curse" has reared its ugly head frequently of late. Let's take a look at the last 10 best-actress winners:
The new season of Chuck is just around the corner (Jan. 10, 9/8c), so TVGuide.com hit the set of the NBC spy series to get the lowdown on what's ahead for the super-charged Chuck. Zachary Levi lounged with us between scenes in a new location that we cannot disclose, under threat of being relocated by the CIA. However, Levi was more than willing to dish on Chuck's new love interest, how the Intersect 2.0 works and what's ahead in the additional six episodes ordered by the peacock network...
Before we get started, lemme just say that I got a new tattoo last night and its quite fetching. Red circle with a star in the center on the inside left forearm. Even the artist dug it. My buddy Jake got an anchor on his bicep
little jealous, not gonna lie. Hurt like a mofo, though. Kids, dont try this at home.OK, now that we got that out of the way, its time for a little more sharing: I love the scary. Horror movies. Haunted houses. Hell, I yelped like a girl at those Burger King commercials with the wooden-faced whatever-that-is. And to anyone who was sitting near me during Rob Zombies Halloween remake, I apologize. Welbutrin make me all better now.Honestly, I have willingly chosen to have the bejebus freaked out of me for like, the last 7 years, spending almost every night in October watching some scream gem or another (ask me about The Boogens, please!). So, in honor of my inner scaredy-cat and the glorious approach of my personal High Holy Day of Ha...
Night Stalker's Stuart Townsend and The X-Files' David Duchovny
Fans of one of the original ghostbusters and his most recent TV incarnation would be wise to scare up a copy of the new Night Stalker DVD boxed set hitting stores today, as it offers up not only four episodes never broadcast during the series' fall 2005 ABC run, but also revealing commentary from creator Frank Spotnitz. TVGuide.com seized this opportunity to ask Spotnitz about his Stalker's unfortunate fate, the frightfully fun show he's working on now and the next X-Files fi
Since Night Stalker premiered [on ABC, Thursdays at 9 pm/ET], the questions I've most often been asked are what that mark on Kolchak's wrist means — and when will we see it again? I'm not about to say what it means, of course, but the answer to the second question is "tonight."
In the pilot episode, we learned Carl Kolchak (Stuart Townsend) found a strange, snake-shaped mark on the left wrist of his wife, Irene, after she was killed on a Las Vegas highway over a year ago. Strangely, she didn't have that mark on her body before her death.
Subsequent to that, Kolchak found the same mark on dozens of other victims of strange deaths. He told his new colleague, Perri Reed (
Question: I don't know about you, but after watching the premiere of Night Stalker, I really miss Darren McGavin and Simon Oakland (not to mention Carol Lynley). The cast of the updated show is just so blah thus far. Stuart Townsend is miscast. (Bruce Campbell would have been a much better choice.)
Answer: "Blah" pretty much sums up my feelings about this unnecessary remake, which would be the low man on this season's sci-fi/horror totem pole if not for the unwatchable Surface. And you are so right that Bruce Campbell would have made a perfect Kolchak: appropriate in age, demeanor and, most important, humor ...
Stuart Townsend as Kolchak
It's almost 8 o'clock. My parents are in the kitchen, my brothers are in the family room. I close the door to my room and shut off the lights. I've seen an ad in TV Guide (I'm 11, and I read it cover to cover every week) for a really scary-looking TV-movie that's about to start, and I don't want to miss a second of it. There are no videotapes, DVDs or TiVo. There's just this one chance to watch this movie, and I want to sit here, by myself, uninterrupted in the darkness of my room and... get scared.
The night was Jan. 11, 1972, and the TV-movie was, of course, The Night Stalker. The Night Stalker was funny, frightening and (at the time at least) incredibly realistic. In my 11-year-old mind, it almost seemed possible there might be a vampire lurking the back alleys of Las Vegas.
In ways I never could have imagined, The Night Stalker ended up having a profound impact on my life.
Stuart Townsend is Kolchak
FADE INOur story opens on a muggy July 2005 afternoon in Hollywood, where a handsome reporter stumbles from a dark, dingy cave clutching a scared young girl. After a last fearful glance over his shoulder, he struggles down a dirt path, desperate to outrun an unseen, unspeakable evil. Suddenly, a voice yells, "Great! Cut!" and crew members scurry in to fix the set for ABC's spooky new Night Stalker (premiering Sept. 29 at 9 pm/ET). It's only the first day of shooting, but that perilous trek along a rocky road is the perfect metaphor for the show's journey to prime time. As executive producer Frank Spotnitz and star Stuart Townsend huddle near the cave to discuss the next scene, we flash back to a year earlier, when it all began....
LATE SUMMER 2004Spo
A year ago, ABC changed the TV landscape with Desperate Housewives and Lost, which generated huge buzz at the Television Critics Association summer press tour and went on to be major game-players.
At this year's TCA, the network enjoyed its new critical and popular high, but resisted being cocky about it. In part, that may be because none of ABC's new fall shows scream "instant breakout" this year.
One drama, though, is poised to capitalize on Lost's imaginative breakthrough, fusing character-based stories onto a genre thriller. That would be Invasion, from Shaun Cassidy (who's overdue a hit), which follows Lost on Wednesdays and, like Lost, gets underway with a spectacular pilot episode that sets up a mystifying premise. In the premiere, a mammoth hurricane slams into the remote town of Homestead, Fla., on the edge of the
