David James Elliott
JAG's David James Elliott has traded his buzzcut and pressed uniform for a flowing mane and a leather breastplate to star in Sci Fi's two-part movie event Knights of Bloodsteel (Sunday, April 19 and Monday, April 20, 9 pm/ET, Sci Fi). Elliott stars as freedom fighter John Serragoth in this tale about the continent of Mirabilis, where humans, goblins, elves and dwarves seek bloodsteel, an ore that imparts magical abilities to anyone who can draw it from the Earth. TVGuide.com spoke with Elliott about making the leap into the fantasy genre, training for sword-fighting scenes and talking up the idea of a JAG reunion.
TVGuide.com: Knights of Bloodsteel could not be more different from JAG. What drew you to the project?
David James Elliott: I'm a fan of the genre and I'm always looking for something my 6-year-old can watch. I thought it was right up his alley. He's always asking me to be in a movie, because he's a big movie watcher.

Ashton Kutcher beat CNN in the race to amass one million Twitter followers, but he may soon be eclipsed by Oprah Winfrey.
The talk show hostess sent her first tweet during Friday's taping of her show — with the help of Kutcher and Twitter CEO Evan Williams — a day after starting her own account. She had accrued more than 70,000 followers — before she tweeted anything. (You can follow TVGuide.com on Twitter, too!)

Prison Break continues this Friday, but only for a few weeks longer. Yes, after four seasons, it's time for Michael and Linc to finally catch their breath... or perhaps take a final one.
What's coming up as the action resumes with a two-hour return (8 pm/ET, Fox)? For one thing, there's the matter of the brothers' big and seemingly bad mama (played by Kathleen Quinlan).
"She plays a big part in the last few episodes," series cocreator Matt Olmstead shares. "A lot of secrets are revealed, and Michael and Lincoln are certainly shook in terms of who they are, where they came from. At a certain point, they're wondering if this is the truth or are they being divided and conquered, so to speak."
The maternal meddling is followed by a mother of a twist. "We have a big surprise reveal," says Olmstead, barely able to contain his excitement. "I won't tell you who it is, but a returning character comes in late in the game, when the wheels are coming off, and he or she is either there to save the day or to hijack the whole thing for his or her own benefit."
That unexpected return, says Olmstead, "pays off very nicely."
Of course, Prison Break being Prison Break, a few bodies will drop before Episode 22 fades to black. And one of them is of such significance, the show's bosses had to fight Fox to take the life in question ...

Will Ferrell's new project features perhaps his most outlandish stunt to date: He drinks his own urine.
Ferrell will appear on a June episode of Discovery Channel's survival series Man vs. Wild, according to Variety. The former Saturday Night Live star and host Bear Grylls will brave the wilds of northern Sweden for 48 hours.
The duo will rappel down a 100-foot-high frozen waterfall, tandem-abseil off a helicopter and brave the overnight subzero temperatures in a snow shelter. They will also find food in the forest, which they wash down with the aforementioned urine.
Ferrell said the experience...

Boom! Legendary NFL commentator John Madden is walking away from the broadcast booth after nearly 30 years.
"It's time," Madden said in a statement issued by NBC Sports, where he has worked since 2006 as an analyst on Sunday Night Football, and for whom he called the most recent Super Bowl. "I'm 73 years old. My 50th wedding anniversary is this fall. I have two great sons and their families and my five grandchildren are at an age now when they know when I'm home and, more importantly, when I'm not.
"I still love every part of it — the travel, the practices, the game film, the games, seeing old friends and meeting new people... but I know this is the right time," Madden said.
The former Oakland Raiders coach has called games for all four of the major broadcast networks. He joined ...

The Working Girl actress will play Brandie, Kimber's beautiful and considerate mother, who visits her ex-pornstar daughter from Wisconsin, a show insider confirms exclusively to TVGuide.com.

Brandie will be joined by Les, her too-tan, on-again-off-again car-salesman boyfriend of six years. Les, played by Robin Thomas (Another World, Who's the Boss), ignites insta-hate from Christian ...
