James Badge Dale, The Pacific
James Badge Dale jokes that the boot camp that he and the other actors in The Pacific endured was so grueling that he's repressed any memory of it.
Dale Dye, a retired Marine captain who served as the military adviser for The Pacific and 2001's Band of Brothers, "likes to see actors cry," Dale tells TVGuide.com.

Even more difficult, says the actor of his role in HBO's 10-part World War II miniseries executive-produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, was feeling a responsibility to Robert Leckie, the real-life Marine he plays. To prepare, he read Leckie's memoir, Helmet for My Pillow, and spent time with Leckie's widow and children. (Leckie himself died in 2001.)
"We all felt a lot of pressure to tell their stories with honor and integrity and respect," says Dale, whose co-stars include Joe Mazzello and Jon Seda.

"The wild thing about Robert Leckie is that he hated the Marines when he was in 'em," says the actor, who goes by Badge...
Dancing with the Stars - Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Hope you enjoyed the shows this week. What did you think?
It feels great to make it through elimination because now Erin knows everything about the show. We've been through a grueling rehearsal process, the elimination process, the "Oh my God! How come they're not calling us safe?" process, the "I'm about to puke" process, so we've done it all. I'm happy to move on and there's nothing that she doesn't know about now.
I thought our foxtrot was great and she did a great job, given that she was coming off a nervous cha-cha performance. I have to give a lot of credit to Erin because we were the only couple who didn't start our second dance before the show began. All the couples are ...

Television is rife with ethically dubious characters. This week a bunch of them made us laugh, cry and cheer their misdeeds. Gossip Girl's Little J set her sights on her stepsister's boyfriend, Southland's Detective Bryant saw a young mentee become a murderer, Jesse exacted delicious revenge on his already exhausted parents on Breaking Bad, and Anna, V's alien den mother, followed up some really weird sex with a little cannibalism. Welcome to Top Moments: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Edition.

Despite the title Miami Medical, creator and executive producer Jeffrey Lieber never had ambitions to create a medical procedural. "We never intended to do a medical show; we never intended to do a show set in Miami," Lieber tells TVGuide.com. "It just sort of happened."
Lieber found his inspiration in his wife's near-death experience 10 years ago, when she was admitted to the Cedars-Sinai trauma unit in a coma with a 107 fever. He became interested in the doctors that saved her life.
