A certain "Star Trek" veteran feels that J.J. Abrams has indeed boldly gone where no man has gone before ... and not in a good way.
William Shatner, known worldwide (and perhaps beyond) as the man who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original "Star Trek" series and in seven feature films, was recently asked about how he feels about "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams now also taking the captain's chair on "Star Wars." Shatner is not as enthusiastic as others have been when it comes to Abrams pulling double duty on arguably the two biggest sci-fi franchises of all time.
"He's being a pig," Shatner said during an interview with Movie Fanatic. "He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk that we have but he's gone too far this time."
By "this time," Shatner is probably referring to his first run-in with Abrams, which involved the possibility of the elder Kirk making some sort of appearance in the 2009 "Star Trek" reboot. That obviously didn't happen, though -- at least according to Abrams -- not for lack of trying.
"We actually had written a scene with him in it that was a flashback kind of thing, but the truth is, it didn't quite feel right," said Abrams in a 2008 interview with AMC. "The bigger thing was that he was very vocal that he didn't want to do a cameo. We tried desperately to put him in the movie, but he was making it very clear that he wanted the movie to focus on him significantly, which, frankly, he deserves."
Abrams also pointed out that while the new "Trek" was a reboot of the series, it was tied to years of established "Trek" mythology and canon ... one of the biggest events of which is the elder Kirk's death in "Star Trek: Generations" (1994).
"The truth is, the story that we were telling required a certain adherence to the 'Trek' canon and consistency of storytelling. It's funny -- a lot of the people who were proclaiming that he must be in this movie were the same people saying it must adhere to canon. Well, his character died on screen. Maybe a smarter group of filmmakers could have figured out how to resolve that."
The humbleness on display in that last sentence might be what ultimately got Abrams on the good side of the notoriously egotistical Shatner. In fact, the former Enterprise captain considers the young filmmaker to be a pal ... though perhaps one in need of some mentoring and sage sci-fi wisdom.
"I think of him as a buddy of mine; I've taken him out for sushi," said Shatner in his interview with Movie Fanatic. "I think it's time for J.J. and I to have another sushi and let me put him straight on two of the largest franchises ... and not employing me in either one of them I think is just foolhardy."
We'll see if that last statement prompts any new casting rumors. William Shatner in a "Star Wars" movie? Could the universe handle such a meta flourish without going all topsy turvy (or at least needing a humpback whale to set everything straight again)?
"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens May 17. "Star Wars: Episode VII" will open some day.
Promo for Season 2 of "The Client List"
Produced by Randy Jackson, the song was originally recorded by Christine Kittrell in 1962.
Why do they even need classes? I mean, look at this:
We think you'll agree with us when we say that one of the best things about One Direction is their refusal to do the whole 'synchronised dance routine' that has been so favoured by boybands past.
Instead, they run about the stage thrusting and doing a few crotch grabs here and there. IT'S AWESOME.
However, it seems even thrusty hip movements take some practice, because according to reports the 1D boys have taken up latin dance-based excerise Zumba to help them get in shape for their upcoming world tour.
A source told The Sun: “The lads are not natural movers so them dancing to Latin music is a sight to behold. But they know it’s good for fitness so they’re putting in the graft.”
'Not natural movers? NOT NATURAL MOVERS? Clearly old sourcey pants has never witnessed the boys whack out 'The Joe'.
Due to the sheer MAHOOSIVENESS of the Take Me Home tour (100 dates over 10 months in 4 continents) management are said to be worried the boys will burn out - so have been getting them into peak physical condition.
Along with the Zumba, the boys are also reported to have been taking spinning classes (if you don't know what that is, thank your lucky stars - we did one once and it was HORRIBLE) and have been told to cut down on alcohol and late nights.
So come on - how many of you would pay good money to see the lads doing some hip swiveling moves to Livin' Da Vida Loca?
28 million viewers (and Kelly Clarkson) catch up to the best new sound in R&B
Kelly Clarkson was a testament to the power of Grammy music discovery when she said during her acceptance speech for best pop vocal album at last week's Grammys, "Miguel, I don't know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together. I mean, good God. That was the sexiest damn thing I've ever seen."
She was talking about Miguel's performance of "Adorn," and clearly a lot of music fans felt the same way, as Miguel's single achieved its best sales week ever on the strength of Sunday-night sales alone, rising to 44,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, a surge of 229%. The single also won for best R&B song. His album, Kaleidoscope Dream, was a breakout hit when it was released last fall, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and also one of three nominees in the inaugural best urban contemporary album category at this year's Grammys.
The impact of Miguel's Grammy moment was still taking shape when Billboard reached the 25-year-old singer at home in Los Angeles on Feb. 13. In the past 72 hours, Miguel had been approached by "a few artists I'm truly a fan of," but no one he could confirm. "The cool part is you want people to discover you. It's such an awesome opportunity and awesome time for that to happen," he says. "I'm on like cloud 12, man."
Congrats on winning your first Grammy. Since the award wasn't televised, where were you when you found out?
I found out in the car as we were pulling up to the red carpet. It was an "Oh, shit" moment. I had my girl with me and it was like, "How crazy is that? And I get to perform?" It was just a great feeling.
When did you know that the performance was happening, and how did you arrange to start singing the song from the crowd?
A week-and-a-half out we knew that we could perform. I wanted to make an intimate thing but I had a bigger vision about the crowd. I got to tip my hat to [telecast producer] Ken Ehrlich-he really had the vision. I did want it to be a stripped-down performance, and it really was genius of him to put us in the aisle.
So you win the award, have a great performance, Kelly Clarkson shouts you out in her speech. How did you celebrate?
I stopped by the Sony party-had to do that to say thanks. I've been to these parties for years, but this seemed like the special night. I actually own something. I wasn't just a part of it. So then I stopped by Chris [Brown]'s party to see Mark Pitts-he signed both of us; he's like my mentor. Then I went to my room. I had a suite, and I had all my friends over and family and we just partied. I didn't sleep until the next day, which was awesome.
All this success in the last 12 months means a lot to you, coming off how you began this whole process almost exactly one year ago with the Art Dealer Chic mixtapes. You released those independently rather than through RCA just after the Jive merger. Why?
In late 2011 I was like, "I'm going to put out a series of micro EPs." I just knew I wanted to put out free music and make it very quality vs. quantity, very personal. Make the whole thing a personal creative process from the artwork to the painting to the design to the production and writing-just for the people who discover music like I do online or my favorite blogs. We put out the first one at the top of February of 2012, and "Adorn" was on that and it got quite a buzz. It got a great response and Mark Pitts, my A&R, was convinced that it should be a single and I was excited, but I was like, "Are you sure this could work?" He was like, "Man, that shit is going to kill." And he was right.
You had written the song "Kaleidoscope Dream" with Salaam Remi almost two years before the full album came together. How did that ultimately determine the direction of the album?
I wanted it to be as edgy and alternative as my lifestyle. I don't think I live the lifestyle that's expected of a quote unquote R&B artist. I'm just not that dude. I don't go to the club and pop bottles. I have my smooth moments, I suppose, but my life isn't like that. Honestly, I don't really listen to R&B music. I'm much more into lots of rock'n'roll. That juxtaposition was really important to highlight. Overall I wanted people to feel the way we would if we had a drink for the first time and we actually have a conversation. I wanted them to walk away knowing I wasn't going to give them my deepest, darkest fucking secrets, but that there was some character to my personality. So that when you do have drinks with someone for the first time you can go, "You know what, this guy is kind of cool. I like where his head is at."
Some of the songs are romantic, others are more overtly sexual. How much were inspired by your own seven-year relationship, and what does your girlfriend think of some of those songs?
"Pussy Is Mine" was not her favorite song. That whole song was freestyle. What makes it interesting is the juxtaposition of ego and vulnerability. It's kind of rolled in this vulnerability, wanting to claim it -- "Tell me that it's mine" -- but it's also out of this vulnerable need: "I want to feel I'm the only one in this moment." I've really been there. It felt like such an honest moment.
You're about to go on tour with Alicia Keys. You'd worked with her on "Where's the Fun in Forever" for your album, so did that opportunity come about through the collaboration?
She just laid it on me. She really came out upon gearing up for the release of Girl on Fire. She just kind of asked me, "Hey, would you be down to come out?" And I said, "Absolutely." We had enough time to really appreciate and respect each other's integrity as musicians. I really love her as an individual, and she's a light amongst a lot of the bullshit in this whole thing. I'm really excited and honored that she invited us out. We'll do our damnedest to work the crowd up before she plays.
So, since you're about to tour with Keys, you may know that her secret for voice lubrication is melted gummy bears. Do you have any rituals of your own for keeping that falsetto intact?
Nothing as good as that, but all-natural honey is my favorite. And then an apple before I go on. What are those pink and yellow ones? Honeycrisp. You know what else I like as an alternative? Nectarines. It's a similar texture, especially when you get a good nectarine.
An artist you may have worked with is Beyonce. What's the story behind that photo of you two in the studio last fall?
Have I worked with Beyonce? [laughs]I was really nervous to ask her, that was all, I just asked her to take a photo with me and she was really sweet about it. That's all I can say. I've honestly never worked with Beyonce. It would be awesome, though, I would love that.
Zachary Quinto's "American Horror Story" character
"I haven't had any conversations about coming back, so at this point I don't think I will be part of the third season as no one has mentioned it to me and I know that they have been making other announcements for the cast. Which is fine, when I signed on for the second season, Ryan [Murphy] and I talked about it being a one year commitment and I think just where I am in my work and what I want to accomplish I think it is good to have a little flexibility and a little bit of freedom. So, at this point I don't really have any plans to go back, but from what I've heard and what I know is maybe going to happen a little bit, I am really excited to see the characters that Lily [Rabe], Sarah [Paulson], Jessica [Lange] and Evan [Peters] all play. I know Frances Conroy is coming back, which I think is amazing and I think it is going to be a different world all together and knowing Ryan as I do I think that it's only going to be more exciting and more surprising than anything we have seen so far. I look forward to watching it."
Tom Cruise’s $50 million lawsuit against Bauer Media Group, the publisher of Life & Style is set to become really ugly — with the report that his daughter Suri is being dragged into the mess.
The Mission Impossible action star slapped a lawsuit on the tabloid in October after the magazine ran a story suggesting he had “abandoned” his daughter after his split from her mother Katie Holmes.
Now, as both sides gear up to go to battle they are demanding an ever-growing list of information from each other as part of the discovery process.
And the demands – if granted – could prove embarrassing for both the Hollywood star and the publisher.
In court papers filed on Thursday both parties outlined what each is seeking in discovery.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the attorney representing Bauer Media wants to know “the extent to which Cruise was in contact with Suri following his separation and divorce.”
The publisher also demands to know the role the actor’s membership in the Church of Scientology played in his decisions regarding visiting and communicating with the six-year-old.
Bauer’s attorney Alonzo Wickers also demands to know what Suri’s mental and emotional state was following her parents’ separation and divorce.
And he has also made it clear that he is determined to examine the actor’s history of filing lawsuits.
But Cruise’s lawyer told the Reporter: “Tom doesn’t go around suing people. He’s not a litigious guy…”
In return, Cruise’s legal team wants Life & Style to reveal its anonymous sources and all their communication with them.
They also want to know what Bauer’s policies and practices are with respect to obtaining information from sources, paying those contacts and verifying the credibility of the people who supply them with information.
The legal team for the devout Scientologist also wants to examine what they call Bauer’s history of “bigotry and hatred toward minority religious groups and their members.”
Bauer is fighting back, however, by trying to exert the right of journalists to protect their sources.
If the case goes to trial, it is estimated it could last five days.

Chloe Moretz is rumoured to be playing lead role of Mia in the upcoming film adaptation of amazing Gayle Forman book If I Stay. The film is based around Chloe's character Mia, a cello player who can't decide whether she wants to stay living in Oregon with her fit rock-star-type boyfriend, or move to New York to kick off her music career. Toughie.
BUT she may not get the chance to decide, when she and her family are involved in a catastrophic car crash, leaving Mia in a coma. A sequel to the book - Where She Went - was later published, so this could be a twosome film-double-whammy for Chloe if she's confirmed for the part.
R.J. Cutler to Direct Chloe Moretz in IF I STAY
Television and documentary filmmaker R.J. Cutler (‘The World According to Dick Cheney,’ ‘Nashville’) is in talks to step behind the camera for ‘If I Stay,’ a film adaptation of Gayle Forman’s young adult novel that has Chloe Moretz attached to star. ‘If I Stay’ will be produced by Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures, with Lionsgate’s Erik Feig and Gillian Bohrer overseeing.

Noooo, I like Chloe but she's not Mia. Hate all you want but i had actually pictured Kristen Stewart as Mia. This sucks fat balls.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams. On TV. Together.
This is now a possibility.
Gellar is set to co-star in the CBS pilot Crazy Ones, a single-cam comedy about a father (Williams) and daughter who run an advertising agency together. The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will play Sydney Roberts, the intense and driven daughter of Williams’s Simon Roberts.
Gellar last headlined CW’s one-season drama Ringer, a role that was billed as her post-Buffy return to television and was part of the 2011-2012 TV season.
CBS announced the pilot order for Crazy Ones, a project by David E. Kelly, and two drama pilots earlier this month.
Krysten Ritter to star in NBC's 'Assistants'
Krysten Ritter is going from Apt. 23 to the corporate world.
The actress could rebound back into the primetime next season following the cancellation of her ABC sitcom Don’t Trust the B—-. She’s signed on to star in Assistants, which is officially described as a fast-moving comedy centered on Nora (Ritter), a “magnetic, hyperactive workaholic, with a sex appeal directly proportional to her anxiety level. Having fallen in love with the magic of moviemaking, she’s the overworked, harried, possibly happy personal assistant to a mercurial producer. But Nora tries (and usually fails) to have a personal life on the side, and is having a passionate affair with equally-busy med student Jeremy. Since her boss expects her to be on call all day and all night, something in Nora’s life is destined to blow a seam. But which will wither and die, her professional life or her personal one?”
The project is from writer Leslye Hedland and based on her play by the same name. It’s one of two assistant-themed comedy pilots in the works this season, the other is Fox’s To My Assistant, about underlings at a big NY law firm.
I am glad Krysten got another gig, but I am still mourning Don't Trust the B- tbh.
Whether it was planned or not, both "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" offered their take on viral craze the Harlem Shake Thursday night (Feb. 14). So naturally, we have to decide which one is better.
The Harlem Shake meme has taken off within the last week or so, with hundreds of people posting their version to YouTube. It started with a YouTube user who calls himself Filthy Frank, and his original video has 5.7 million-plus views as of this post.
A version set in an office and posted on Feb. 6 (10 million-plus views) seems to have established the template of most of what's come since: Dance music artist Baauer's track "Harlem Shake" (which has little to do with the actual Harlem Shake dance moves for the late '80s and '90s) plays while someone wearing a motorcycle helmet grooves along while the people around him go about their business. At the line "Do the Harlem Shake," there's a quick cut, and suddenly everyone is going nuts.
"The Colbert Report's" version pretty much follows that form, although Stephen Colbert doesn't don a helmet. Jon Stewart does put on some headgear in "The Daily Show's" video, but the rest of it plays out a little differently.
Bonus embarrassed Anderson Cooper version!
Guess Chris Brown wasn't Rihanna's valentine. After a PDA-packed night out on Grammys Sunday (Feb. 10), the controversial pair were anything but lovey-dovey at Hollywood club Playhouse -- where they both arrived, separately, past midnight on Friday.
The "Stay" singer, 24, and Brown, 23, were "not at all on speaking terms" at the hotspot (where revelers were celebrating the one year anniversary of Popular Demand clothing) once they settled in with their respective pals, an observer tells Us Weekly. "She refused to sit with or even near him," the witness adds. "When she noticed he was there, she made a huge show of rubbing her presence in his face."
PHOTOS: Rihanna and Chris through the years
"Happy Valentines Day," Rihanna tweeted to her 28 million followers earlier in the day. "Today the day fa lovin not hatin so to cats like you and I it's just another day…" As for Valentine's gifts for Brown or any other loved ones, the Barbados beauty shared an Instagram snapshot revealing a different sort of bouquet from an unidentified admirer. "Roses are green!" she wrote beneath a photo of what appeared to be a marijuana plant, sent by an unidentified friend. "Somebody knows how to make me happy."
PHOTOS: Sexiest Grammys dresses of all time
The scene was much different at the Grammys earlier in the week -- where the pair (four years after Brown's infamous assault of his then-love) nuzzled in their seats at the Staples Center, and were "very affectionate" at an afterparty.

Tune in for this all-new episode of Our America with "Martyrs for Christ?" on Tuesday, February 19th at 10/9c, only on OWN.
Naomi Watts supports her pal Simon Baker at his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Thursday (February 14) in Hollywood.
The 43-year-old Mentalist actor received the 2,490th star on the Walk of Fame. He was also joined at the ceremony by his wife Rebecca Rigg and their kids Stella, Claude, and Harry, as well as his Mentalist co-star Robin Tunney.
In case you didn’t know, Naomi is Claude‘s godmother!
That's Bruno Heller, executive producer of The Mentalist, on the left.
Video of the entire ceremony at this link: http://www.walkoffame.com/simon-baker
Australian born actor, Simon Baker first arrived on American screens in 1997 in Curtis Hanson’s critically acclaimed LA Confidential. The highly praised film marked the beginning to a career of captivating performances and notable collaborations across the film and television spectrum.
Currently starring in the highly successful WB television hit The Mentalist, his portrayal of the charming and irreverent Patrick Jane has won him international stardom and earned him Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG nominations. The highly successful Warner Bros. Television series airs Sundays at 10/9c on CBS, and is currently in its fifth season
His work in films such as Ang Lee’s Ride with the Devil, Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me with Casey Affleck, George Romero’s Land of the Dead with Dennis Hopper and David Frankel’s international box office hit The Devil Wears Prada with Meryl Streep, has cemented his reputation as a versatile and charismatic character actor and leading man alike.
An earlier television venture as the title character of CBS’s The Guardian, took him away from the big screen for three years but he returned with a starring role in the sequel to the Dreamworks monster hit, The Ring, with Naomi Watts, the indie Sundance competition favorite, Book of Love and the interracial love story, Something New.
Recently he worked alongside Kevin Spacey and an all- star cast in the critically acclaimed Margin Call, which was recognized with several awards including an academy award nomination for best original screenplay.
He will next be seen in the British comedy, I Give it a Year, with Rose Byrne and Anna Faris, which is currently opening in the UK to great reviews.
Throughout his career Simon has pursued his interest in directing, beginning with an episode of The Guardian and more recently, several episodes of The Mentalist. He recently joined with Oscar winning producer, Mark Johnson to acquire the Tim Winton novel Breath, which they plan to adapt and co-produce as a feature film.
Baker has recently become the face of Givenchy’s new men’s fragrance, Gentlemen Only and is a brand ambassador for the Swiss watch company, Longines.
His involvement with Artists for Peace and Justice, focused on rebuilding infrastructure in Haiti, led to a friendship with Mending Kids International. He is also involved with the organization, Life Rolls On and their flagship program, They Will Surf Again, which pushes the boundary of possibility for those with spinal cord injuries. He actively supports Planned Parenthood and The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking.
Gorgeous man, gorgeous family. Happy for him :) I love that he's BFFs with Robin Tunney. I think Nicole Kidman is the godmother of another one of his kids.

Is John Stamos Returning to General Hospital as Blackie?!
Is John Stamos headed back to General Hospital for the soap's upcoming 50th anniversary? Execs are the ABC soap are mum on the matter but the star himself will spill the very juicy beans on the Monday, Feb. 18 episode of The Jeff Probst Show — and TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive clip!
During a sit-down with Probst, Stamos reveals he has indeed met with GH brass but was not thrilled to hear they want his popular '80s character, Blackie Parrish, to appear at the Nurse's Ball playing drums while Rick Springfield sings "Jessie's Girl."
"That's not gonna happen," Stamos tells Probst. "That's what I passed on." The actor goes on to say he's "indebted" to GH for putting him on the map and would happily return if given something meaty to do.
"Why don't we pull Blackie out of jail [where he's been for 30 years] and he has to reacclimate to life?" Stamos says. "He's never been with a girl! I would like to go on [GH] and do some acting."
So whaddya say GH? You've been challenged!
By the way, make sure you catch the full episode because Stamos even volunteers to be part of a "second wave" of GH favorites if something substantial can't be worked out in time for the actual anniversary. And Probst, who clearly wants to see Stamos jam with Springfield, tries to broker a compromise. It's talk-show gold!

Entertainment reporter and We Love Soaps contributor Nelson Aspen spoke with David Hasselhoff during his Tuesday morning segment on Australia's SUNRISE program. He managed to work The Hoff's role as Snapper Foster in THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS into the update. Watch it below.
Soaps in Depth is reporting that ALL MY CHILDREN Emmy-winner David Canary (Adam/Stuart) will be part of the soap's new version set to debut online this spring.
In Depth also hears that AMC will have a heavy emphasis on a group of high school characters and that the series will be set five years from the moment JR readied to start shooting beloved Pine Valley citizens in the ABC finale. The re-launched AMC will supposedly start off with Adam and Dixie's son waking up from a coma (played by an actor other than Jacob Young, who is now starring in THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL).
Check out the KABC 7 video below previewing GENERAL HOSPITAL's 50th anniversary. It includes comments from Genie Francis, executive producer Frank Valentini, Ian Buchanan, Finola Hughes and Kin Shriner.
"It feels like they've come home," says Valentini. "At least for the next six to eight weeks, you'll see a lot of the veterans front and center and a lot more surprises coming up throughout the months of February, March and through April."
"There are plenty of surprises coming, says Francis. "And more people coming, by the way, more surprises that way as well."
Soaps in Depth is reporting that ALL MY CHILDREN Emmy-winner Susan Lucci will be part of the soap's new version set to debut online later this spring. But as of now, Lucci will appear in just one episode as Erica Kane.
In the wake of Cady McClain's announcement that she is reprising the role of Dixie on Prospect Park's AMC reboot, and with Jill Larson (Opal) already signed, Digest went straight to the source behind the man so pivotal to both Dixie and Opal — Michael E. Knight, whose Tad was Dixie's fiancé and Opal's son — to see where he stands on the subject of reprising his beloved role of Tad "the Cad" Martin.
"Where I stand is, I consider it a blessing that the Martins are going to be represented," he enthuses. "I mean, the news is that I think Jill is incredibly underrated as an actress. I think she's brilliant. I think the Martins are going to be well-represented with Cady and I hear Ray [MacDonnell, ex-Joe, who was an original cast member of ABC's AMC]. I’m sorry if Ricky [Paull Goldin, ex-Jake] won't be. I'm blessed, personally, that the Martins are going to be represented. With me, personally, it was simply an issue of timing, period," he states as to why he won't be present for the debut of the relaunch.
"I consider [Executive Producer] Ginger Smith to be, actually, one of my oldest and dearest friends, in that industry and in life. And I had asked her for patience with me because as I like to put it, I didn't say no, I just said, 'I can't do it right now.' I love the fact that the interest is there and I firmly believe Tad is going to be walking through Pine Valley in short order at some point." The actor is particularly pleased that Smith will be at the helm of the reboot. "I applaud Rich [Frank] and [Jeff Kwatinetz, the runners of Prospect Park] for having the vision to do what they’re doing and I have a lot of respect for them for having the innate intelligence to go to Ginger. Let me just say, they've got the right horse in the race."
Knight appreciates ongoing audience interest in him and his Pine Valley alter ego. "I just want to reach out and express my personal and heartfelt thanks to the audience for even caring enough to wonder where the hell that Tad guy is [laughs]."
In June 1968, Bill Bell, a writer for DAYS OF OUR LIVES, penned a short open letter to the TV and film industry and printed it in Variety. Spurred by the "insane, violent" deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, Bell called upon his colleagues to "recognize our responsibilities and take decisive steps to temper and hopefully eliminate violence from our programming." Bell argued that much onscreen violence was not simply gratuitous, but artistically bankrupt. "As a writer, I know that…you can have conflict without violence," he wrote (emphasis his). "And that invariably it is finer drama."
The letter is reprinted in a new, glossy issue of the venerable showbiz rag that explores the claims, expressed most recently by the NRA's Wayne LaPierre, that the entertainment industry deserves some of the blame for mayhem like the Sandy Hook massacre. Instead of shrugging off the criticism, Variety editor-in-chief Timothy M. Gray embraces it and even echoes Bell's message in his opening note: "Don't underestimate your power or responsibility…When asked about violent or demeaning content, some in Hollywood shrug, 'It's what the public wants.' But there is a fine line between catering to the public and pandering to their basest instincts."
The 50th anniversary really kicks into high gear this Monday when Genie Francis returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL on ABC. The icing on the cake continues on Feb. 19, when Kin Shriner will reprise his role as Scotty.
The 128 page hardcover edition product description: "Celebrate the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, the longest running scripted television drama currently in production. Reminisce with the Quartermaines and Spencers, the famed residents of fictional Port Charles, New York. Learn about the troubled marriages of the Hardys and Brewers during the show's early days in 1963. Revisit the wedding of Luke and Laura in 1981, the most watched event in daytime television history. Relive BJ's ultimate sacrifice, Emily's untimely end, and the tragic teen lives of Stone and Robin. It's all there in words and pictures: the stars, the storylines, and the pictures-behind-the-scenes and in front of the camera. No wonder Princess Diana and Liz Taylor counted themselves among the millions of loyal General Hospital fans."
"I can't believe that the first gig my son Nicholas gets is General Hospital," Rick wrote on his Facebook page. "Coolest thing is, I had nothing to do with it. Hahaha! Take that Hollywood nepotism!" There's no word yet on the character Nicholas, age 20, will play.
GH tweeted a photo announcing the makeover.
Ray Fulk was 71 when he died last July. He lived alone on a 160-acre property in Lincoln, Ill. that he inherited from his father. He had no family or children.
"He was a loner, and a lot of neighbors didn't know who he was," estate attorney Donald Behle said.
What Fulk did have, though, was an admiration for actors Kevin Brophy and Peter Barton, whom he had never met. He admired them so much that he left his estate to be split between them.
Barton is known for his role as Dr. Scott Grainger in the soap opera "The Young and the Restless" from 1987 to 1993.
ONE LIFE TO LIVE alum Fumero be will playing a hard-nosed detective (and a possible love interest for Samberg).
The other shoe has dropped — following Twentieth Television’s decision last week not to renew the Ricki Lake Show, CBS TV Distribution today said that its struggling freshman syndicated talker The Jeff Probst Show will not be retuning for the 2013-2014 season. Original episodes will continue to air through the end of the season. “We believe Jeff is an incredible talent, and that he and his dedicated producing team delivered quality episodes throughout the season. Unfortunately, the audience isn’t there to support a second year. We are grateful to the entire staff, our affiliate partners and advertisers for their ongoing support of The Jeff Probst Show,” a CTD spokesperson said. Added Probst, “I’m super bummed but extremely proud. The truth is all shows come to an end. Ours just ended a decade sooner than we had hoped.” Probst continues of course as longtime host of CBS’ Survivor, which premieres its 26th installment tonight.
Like Ricki Lake, Jeff Probst never found an audience to support it as the two shows faced a glut of new talkers last fall. Jeff Probst already went through a round of layoffs in December when several staffers, including producers, were let go. The disappointing launch was at least partially responsible for the October shakeup at CBS TV Distribution, which saw president John Nogawski exit and Armando Nuñez get oversight of the division.
Jeff Probst joins Ricki Lake and sophomore syndicated talk show Anderson Cooper Live, which are ending their runs this season, as is Debmar-Mercury’s sophomore The Jeremy Kyle Show. Freshmen Katie, from ABC-Disney; Steve Harvey and Trisha Goddard, from NBCU; and Dish Nation have been renewed.
Peter Bergman believes what's good for one soap opera is good for all soap operas.
That's why the actor -- who has played Jack Abbott on the CBS weekday staple "The Young and the Restless" for 24 years, winning three Daytime Emmy Awards for the role -- is rooting for the former ABC shows "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" to succeed in their new form as online offerings, with production on them set to resume at the end of the month.
"We have lamented the loss of that crazy wave of fascination with soap operas," Bergman tells Zap2it, "but the things that are hot now in primetime, from 'Downton Abbey' to 'Mad Men' to the rebirth of 'Dallas,' are serials. I'm hopeful this will go on for a while, and the reason these shows do go on is that when people tune in, they know who they're going to see.
"They're not going to be asked to be part of a giant transition. When people tune into our show, they'll find Jack and Nikki and Victor and Katherine ... and I'm very lucky to be playing one of those names."
Bergman is more than a casual observer of the revival of "All My Children," since he spent nearly a decade on that drama as Dr. Cliff Warner before starting his long tenure on 'The Young and the Restless." He muses, "As a fortune teller, I have been an abysmal failure" when it comes to predicting whether his current show -- which marks its 40th anniversary Tuesday, March 26 -- could have a similar afterlife in the online world.
"When the first rumor came that they were taking 'All My Children' off the air, I told everyone at work, 'Oh, please! There's no way that's going to happen. ABC owns those shows.' So, as for my prognosticating about where 'Y&R' might or could go, who knows?
"I'll tell you this, though," adds Bergman. "There's not a person working in daytime television today who isn't cheering on every one of those people on 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live.' We're hoping they are a giant success."
Prospect Park announced today that the online revivals of ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE will begin on Monday, February 25 with production taking place in Stamford, Connecticut. The 30-minute episodes will begin airing online via Hulu.com, Hulu Plus and iTunes later this spring. While some actors have already been announced, cast lists for both shows are not yet final. Expect more names added to the casts in the coming weeks. Also, while they say that production will commence, that doesn't necessarily mean taping episodes. Once they actually begin shooting, they will likely have a firm date for when the shows will begin airing.
Ignacio Serricchio plays Alex the cop during the day on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, but tonight he's a potential suspect on CSI! In the episode, titled "Exile," the actor plays Estefan Meha, the owner of the club where a famous singer's sister dies. "I can't tell you if Estefan is a good guy or a bad guy," Serricchio teases, "but I can say he's trying to do the right thing. He owns this club and wants to make some money. He knows [the victim] so this is very personal to him."
The actor agrees that CBS' crime dramas are expert at hooking viewers in — once you see the setup at the beginning of the show it's very difficult to not stick around to see how it's resolved! It's the same way, he says, when he read the script. "As I read it, I try to solve the mystery myself," he says. "That's what keeps me reading. I may make an assumption at the beginning and as I keep reading it I try to see if I'm right or not. You have to be a little bit of a detective yourself!"

Congratulations to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Adam Gregory (Thomas) and his wife, Sheridan, who became first-time parents last night! "Kannon has finally arrived!" tweeted the new mom. "After 17 1/2 hrs of labor, our perfect boy is here! 8 lbs 12 oz & 20 in born at 7:45 pm! We are beyond obsessed!" Added Kannon's dad, "8 Lbs. 12 ounces of awesome!! @imsheridanicole is the most amazing woman!"
There's something about a man in uniform. That slow, simmering attraction between Bunheads widow Michelle (Sutton Foster) and surfer dude Godot (Nathan Parsons) officially gets hot in Monday's episode (9/8c, ABC Family) — hot enough to brings in the hooks and ladders.
"So far we've only seen Michelle and Godot making out and trading barbs but things take a turn when there's a wild fire and he shows up in full firefighter gear," says Parsons. "She has no idea he's a volunteer with the Paradise fire department and really likes what she sees. In fact, that uniform works so well I'm thinking of getting one in real life!"
The Australia-born Parsons is accustomed to being treated like a prime hunk o' man-meat — after all, he spent three years as Ethan on General Hospital — and things were no different at Bunheads. "By my third audition I'm in a room with all these hilarious, outspoken women — [creator] Amy Sherman-Palladino, her writers and the casting director — and suddenly it's, 'Take off your shirt!' I hated that stuff on GH because they take it so seriously. But those ladies were out for fun!"
Any chance Parsons and Jonathan Jackson (now a regular on Nashville) will show up for a reunion of the Luke Spencer spawns for GH's 50th anniversary? "They're actually talking about that and it would be so good to see everybody," Parsons says. "They call every now and then and ask if I'd be interested in coming back for something longer. If the situation is right, I'd absolutely do it, but things have been pretty busy lately and pilot season is happening. So we'll see."
He hasn't forgotten how cushy suds work can be. "I was so worried when I left GH [in early 2012], so scared I'd never work again," Parsons says. "Pilot season came and went and I didn't get anything. I was, like, 'Aurghh! My life is over!' But then Bunheads came along. [Laughs] And I was so happy to take off my shirt!"
GENERAL HOSPITAL continues to thrill longtime viewers with the returns of fan favorites for its 50th Anniversary, the latest announcement being that Rachel Ames will be reprising her role of Audrey Hardy!
Ames started on the soap in 1964 and retired in 2007, although she did pop back into Port Charles in 2009. She also crossed over to GH's spin-off PORT CHARLES in 1997. A GH spokesperson confirmed Ames' return, and reports that you can expect to see Audrey on Friday, March 29.
Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens is reporting that Roger Howarth will bring the character of Todd Manning back ONE LIFE TO LIVE for four weeks to help launch Prospect Park's new version of the show. Once that stint is complete, Howarth will return to GENERAL HOSPITAL where first crossed over in February 2012.
Two-time Emmy winner Sonia Blangiardo has been named Supervising Producer of ALL MY CHILDREN, coming this spring from Prospect Park, reports Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey on her blog.
"I am so excited to go back to my AMC roots with this talented group of people," enthuses Blangiardo in a statement on her own website, NYC Brand Productions. "Ginger Smith [executive producer] has some big plans, which long-time fans are going to love."
NYC Brand Productions is also working on another scripted series, TAINTED DREAMS, scheduled to go into production later this year.
First the good news: She's not dying. Now the bad news: Nikki Newman, the divalicious socialite played by Melody Thomas Scott on The Young and the Restless, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The devastating development was revealed in the Feb. 14 episode of the CBS soap (geez, Happy Valentine's Day, Nik!) and TV Guide Magazine scored an exclusive chat with Thomas Scott to get more scoop. What does she really think of this plot twist?
TV Guide Magazine: MS, huh? Yikes. Please tell us this is a good idea!
Melody Thomas Scott: When people hear MS they gasp and think it's a death sentence, and the plan with this story is to educate people that it's not, that it's controllable with the proper treatment. Of course, the fans on Twitter are already thinking Nikki's gonna die what with all these mysterious symptoms she's been having. They thought it was maybe going to be cancer or something. Of course, what do I know? [Laughs] Maybe they are killing Nikki off? Hey, these things happen.
TV Guide Magazine: Is your contract up? We've been here before!
Thomas Scott: [Laughs] Hey, they tried that already and it didn't work! But, seriously, I think this could be really worthwhile, an opportunity to show the audience that MS is not the end of the world. We actually have a girl on our crew — I've said good morning to her every day for years and years — and I only just found out she has MS. She's a perfect example of people living normal lives with the disease, so that's very encouraging.
TV Guide Magazine: You've done your research?
Thomas Scott: I have to admit I knew nothing about MS, so I've been gathering the information. I'm also finally catching up with The West Wing, which I'd never watched during its original run, in order to see how they handled MS with Martin Sheen's character. What a wonderful show that was! I thought maybe I could learn a little more about the disease by watching it, but now I'm hooked!
TV Guide Magazine: Word is, Victor [Eric Braeden] finds out about the MS diagnosis from Jack [Peter Bergman], not from Nikki. What's up with that?
Thomas Scott: Yes, the bastard! Jack ends up blabbing to Victor even though Nikki swore him to secrecy. Then Nikki comes home one day and, without Victor even saying a word, she can tell he knows what's going on. So then she tears over to Jack's house and yells at him.
TV Guide Magazine: Does he spill the beans out of true concern or is he using this to one-up Victor?
Thomas Scott: He claims he did it because Nikki can't be alone with this right now and needs support. But who knows? He's such a son of a b----! Then Nikki has to tell her kids. I'm not sure how many people in town will know what's going on, but Nikki's friends certainly do. The very few friends she has, that is.
TV Guide Magazine: Remember when her only pal in the world was her butler Miguel? So sad.
Thomas Scott: [Laughs] It's not a hell of a lot better now!
TV Guide Magazine: Is Victor pissed that Jack knew first?
Thomas Scott: You'd think Victor and Nikki would argue about that but it never happens. They never even discuss it!
TV Guide Magazine: Just watch. Victor will use it as ammo later.
Thomas Scott: Oh, I'm sure! But right now he's being amazingly kind to Nikki. It's so not like him to be so sweet. She's just not used to this. She doesn't know what to do!
TV Guide Magazine: Did you find out about Nikki's bad news by reading a script or did the brass sit you down and warn you about this?
Thomas Scott: I did have a sit-down meeting, a little three-way with [head writer] Josh Griffith and [executive producer] Jill Phelps. They wanted to know how I felt about the idea, and I told them I thought it was great. Josh didn't know I used to play piano on Y&R way back when, so he decided to revive that and use it to show the beginnings of Nikki's symptoms — the shaky hands, the cramping, the feeling you've got arthritis.
TV Guide Magazine: This sounds like a big fat bummer. Are you sure this is entertainment?
Thomas Scott: [Laughs] Nikki is a bummer. She's all about misfortune and tragedy and always has been. Her back problems several years ago were horribly debilitating and that led her to addiction. It's always something with her! I've think Josh is a wonderful writer and he's never given me any reason not to trust him. And I love Jill. All of those horrible stories we heard when she was hired — "Watch out, the wicked witch is coming!"— were ridiculous. I don't see any evidence of what those people were talking about. She's a doll. They've both been very good to me.
TV Guide Magazine: Would they have cancelled their plans for this MS story if you didn't want to do it?
Thomas Scott: I got the feeling that if I disliked it enough they would have changed it to something else but I didn't know enough about MS, or where this story might go, to make that decision. I just knew I'd be playing piano again. [Laughs] That's what threw me into a panic!</i>
Spidey-man is back! The adorable Patrick J. Gibbons who played the beloved Sam Manning on One Life to Live just got the news that he will be reprising his role when One Life to Live begins production in Connecticut!
