Sex in Aisle 4

'What Women Want'This is our fourth episode and my favorite. Without giving too much away, four of our characters get it on. It’s a make-out free for all. There’s also a fight—two characters end up with black eyes. What more could you ask for?This was my first real kissing scene as an actor and I was scared to death. Actually, I had a brief kiss in an episode of ‘Jesse’ on NBC. I played Christina Applegate’s mute brother—probably the easiest gig of my life. I had a network job sandwiched between ‘Friends’ and ‘Frazier’ (by the way, I think 30 minutes of black screen sandwiched between ‘Friends’ and ‘Frazier’ would get good numbers). I got network money and I didn’t have to learn any lines! Although I have to admit that is sort of what I’m doing now. Since the show is improvised, I don’t have any lines to learn, but somehow it doesn’t feel as easy as those salad days on ‘Jesse’.My... read more

Follow Your Bliss

Happy holidays, everyone.The tides have changed for jailbird Brad Bellick. May the circle be unbroken. I wonder how long an ex ass-guard is gonna last in the Big House. Don't pick up the soap. Again we're off for hiatus, but this time we'll be back much earlier, with a recap [airing] Jan. 22! Then new episodes begin Jan. 29. We're still shooting here in Dallas — we've got two weeks off for the holidays, then back to work in early January — so we didn't get the three-month break this time. I think it'll be better for everyone. It's nice to gain a little anticipation with a hiatus, but three months was ridiculous! This is a little more like it.I thought [the fall finale] was a great episode. Surprises galore, turncoats, reversals of fortune... a lot like politics these days!I'm loving what the writers are giving Bellick this year. He's gotten to travel from the depths of despair to being $5 million richer to being put into his worst nightmare — back in gen pop in the p... read more

Episode 10: A Benihana Christmas

Season's greetings from Kate Flannery! The Office presents its new, one-hour Christmas episode this week!Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming! The Office Christmas episode is twice as nice! No, I am not referring to my boobs. (It was last season's "Christmas Party" episode when the drunken Meredith went topless in Michael's office.) No, no, it's twice as nice because it's a full hourlong episode. I can't count how many fans have written me on MySpace or commented here at TVGuide.com and said the words, "I wish The Office was an hour." Well? Let me quote Dwight K. Schrute by saying, "It's a Christmas miracle!" This is the deal: It was a fake goose. No goose was hit by Dwight K. Schrute. No birds were killed. Get this: The Office starts at 8 pm/ET instead of 8:30 this week! Set your TiVo or DVR or DVD-burner or VCR or your Greg Brady-style tape recorder (a method I used as a child in the '70s when there was no alternative, except maybe writing it all down as fast as humanly possib... read more

Two new guest stars to join My Boys

I'm happy to tell you about two of our guest stars in this Tuesday's episodes.In episode 105, you will meet Brendan's on-again, off-again girlfriend, Wendy, played by Lindsey Stoddart. Lindsey has been a longtime improv performer at the Improv Olympic West. She is a recurring character on My Boys, so you don't want to miss her introduction — clearly! In episode 106, Johnny Galecki makes the first of a couple of appearances on the show. He plays Trouty, the epitome of a bad hang. You may know him from Roseanne as Darlene's boyfriend. Johnny is an amazing actor. He is currently performing in a Broadway play called "The Little Dog Laughed." When we started shooting this episode, he had just finished a movie the night before. He didn't wrap until four in the morning and had been doing a scene in which he was crying and puking. (Apparently it was a drama — let's hope). Just a few hours later, he arrived on our set as a completely different character in a comedy. Well, I thou... read more

Big Day, Episode 3

TVGuide.com's celebrity blogs are displayed in the reverse order that they were written, which is so that the reader can watch the author enjoy himself more and more. It would be kind of depressing to see them in the real order, from "Oh, wow! I get a blog! This will be fun!" to "Greta Garbo did not go far enough."That's because it's a lot of pressure to come up with an interesting story each time. Here's a television secret: not every episode of Big Day [Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET, on ABC] provides the sort of exciting behind-the-scenes anecdote that meets the incredibly high standards of a TVGuide.com blog. Sure, every once in a while you'll have to wrestle a sword away from a drunken Josh Cooke before he accomplishes his bellowed intention of driving to the set of The Office and decapitating John Krasinski ("There can only be one! There can only be one!"). But that's only three weeks out of 10. The other seven, you're searching for things to put in the blog. ("Maybe if I set Cooke's tra... read more

Gumbo Love

"Silver Star," the episode of The Unit [Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET, on CBS] that airs Dec. 12, has Jonas and Molly going home to Jonas' parents. The occasion is Jonas' father finally being awarded the Silver Star for his heroic actions in Korea. While at the family gathering, Jonas' nephew — a soldier recently returned from combat and suffering from post-traumatic-stress disorder — acts cowardly in beating his pregnant wife. Jonas steps in with some rough justice and tough love. In the process, he shares his dad's story, taking us back to the hero who did not receive a hero's welcome, as Jonas' father, a colored man in uniform, travels with his son down south in the US of A, 1952. At the TOC, Mac tries to help a mysterious passenger (Ed O'Neill) on a private jet in restricted airspace, who is trying to land the plane after the pilot dies at the control board.The JumpThis past month, Michael Irby, Robert Patrick and Scott Foley jumped with the U.S. Army parachute team, Tthe Gold... read more

December 10, 2006 Episode: The Ripatti Family

Day 1: Door KnockToday was a very special day for me. I have traveled the country for almost four years meeting amazing people with incredible stories. Today was no different. What was different was that the Ripatti-Pearce family hails from a place I have called home for the last 15 years — Redondo Beach, California. Kristina and her husband, Tim, are both police officers in the LAPD; they share a common love for helping their community and "beating the bad guys at their own game." They also shared a love for the outdoors, surfing, fishing, running and working out. A year and a half ago they welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Jordan, into the world. They were a family with everything going for them and a bright future. But just four short months ago everything changed. While on patrol one night, Kristina and her partner chased a suspect who turned and shot her three times, paralyzing her from the chest down. Meeting these people and seeing everything they have been through ... read more

"New York Fiction, Part II"

Welcome to another Men in Trees blog by your friendly host, Bergl. I've just returned from a promotional shoot for the UK launch of Men in Trees, which is very exciting for me because I'm originally from England (my dad is British and my mom is Irish). Did you know that Jason O'Mara, who plays the charming publisher Stuart Maxson, is Irish? He has the most amazing American accent, which you will be hearing again in subsequent episodes. (Ladies, don't you love how they keep adding even more handsome men to the show? James Tupper can't be expected to shoulder all the burden on his fisherman sweater-clad shoulders, which, yes, do look as good in real life.)Jason O'Mara is from Sandycove, which is right around the corner from the town of Dalkey, where my mother grew up. Now our Irish relatives can watch us on Men in Trees. Up until now, my appearances on UK TV were mostly limited to The Rage: Carrie 2 and an episode of CSI: Miami, and in both of these I kill people — most notably... read more

December 6, 2006: Shopping Break

Hello, Office fans. I don't mean people who like to work in an office. The Office is not on this Thursday. I know. It's a bummer. Guess you can see me in the deleted scenes on NBC.com or you'll just have to Google Kate Flannery. Or not. Google the rest of the cast. Have you watched the webisodes lately? The Office is like oxygen. You get too much, you get too high. Not enough and… you know the rest of the song. You will not see the Dunder Mifflin crew this week, nor the drunken redhead in the corner — a.k.a. me. Let's face it. You have Christmas shopping to do and you had better get a move on before it's too late and you're so stressed out that you find yourself shopping like a mad woman and spend more money than God. Oh, wait. That's me!Use the time wisely. Next week is our Christmas episode and it's going to be an hour. The Office DVDs make great gifts. The NBC.com shop has cool stuff from The Office. But the coolest stuff from The Office is at Cafepress.com. Just put Th... read more

Big Day, Episode 2

After I wrote last week's blog, I planned on never having to write another story about my life. All I had to do, I figured, was just spend the next 10 weeks responding to the comments from this one. It is now seven days later and right now there are three fewer comments on my TVGuide.com blog than there are on my IMDB page arguing that I look like David Boreanaz: "However, David is much more attractive." (Words hurt, Dovercliffs.) Which is to say, zero. So here's blog entry No. 2.For me, as for many young actors, the difference between shooting the first episode and the second episode of ABC's Big Day [Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET] was kind of like the difference between Rocky and Rocky II. If your show gets picked up, you have a lot more money, and you know it's going to be on the air. The world gets a lot brighter. I had a new car. I was engaged. Things were good. But as we got ready to shoot the second episode, I realized I had to do the same thing I did in the first one, and there were s... read more
