In an interview with the UK's Daily Record, the British actor revealed that once Fox's medical drama comes to an end, he's done with TV roles.

"I think I have been rather spoiled here [in America]," he said. "I can't imagine there will be another one quite like this. And I think I am extremely lucky to have had the one shot that I have had at it, and I wouldn't go looking for lightning to strike twice."

"I have a list of childhood goals," Segel told Moviefone. "There are only three things on it: Be on David Letterman, work with the Muppets, and host 'SNL.' I had done Letterman before and I, obviously, did the Muppet movie last year. But, I did all three last week. In one week! That's not hyperbole, that's an actual list I had."

Tori Spelling's Husband Accidentally Tweets Revealing Photo of Her

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 18th 2011 10:00AM
Tori and DeanWhat is it about public figures and Twitter? Just days after Ashton Kutcher turned his feed over to his management following a controversial tweet about Joe Paterno's firing, Dean McDermott found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons as well: he tweeted out a topless picture of wife Tori Spelling to over 77,000 followers.

We'd imagine that the reason for the slip was a little more innocent than anything Anthony Weiner could come up with; it seems as though McDermott was actually trying to tweet a harmless picture of his son goofing around with a cut-out of a rolling pin stuck to his head (similar to this) and didn't realize that his Spelling was visible in the background.

Dough head indeed ...

Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list?
