Paul Shaffer writing memoir - VIDEO

Paul Shaffer, Late Show band leader, is writing a memoir about his show business career. The book will be out sometime in 2009. Youngsters recognize Paul as David Letterman's band leader and occasional comic foil, but he actual started as the musical director on Saturday Night Live in the late '70s, appearing in pretty much any sketch that involved muscians, most notably Bill Murray's lounge singer bits. Shaffer also starred in the short-lived sitcom A Year at the Top, about two musicians from Idaho who travel to Hollywood and are tempted by the devil's son to sell their souls for fame. This should not be confused with Top of the Heap, which was a Married with Children spin-off starring Matt LeBlanc. Also, don't confuse it with Top Cat, that's a Hanna Barbera cartoon....

A pilot for Paul Reubens

It seems that pesky little problem has finally left Paul Reubens behind. He has been cast as the lead in a pilot for NBC called Area 52. He'll play the role of an alien who is being housed in a government facility. I wish I could tell you more about this pilot, but that's all NBC is releasing. But, I don't find it hard to believe the Reubens just might be an alien. Paul Reubens has done all sorts of guest starring roles on television, most recently on Dirt and 30 Rock, since his arrest for public masturbation during a police sting in 1991. He is also currently filming Pee-Wee's Playhouse: The Movie-- further proof that his past is now behind him....

RuPaul's Drag Race heads to Logo

What must it be like to be RuPaul? Hmmm ... I can't really even fathom it, so let's just continue on with this news item as if it's important. RuPaul's Drag Race, a new reality competition series helmed by the drag queen him/herself, has been greenlighted by MTV Networks' Logo, which targets lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender viewers, notes The Hollywood Reporter....

Paul Winchell dead at 82

Huh. Apparently Tigger created an artificial heart. Okay, not Tigger exactly, but Paul Winchell, the man who supplied his voice. It was just one of thirty patents owned by the inventor and performer, who passed away Friday at the age of 82. It's hard to believe a man that intelligent would be the voice behind such an energetic and naive character. I guess that's why they call it acting. Naturally, Tigger's voice will be replaced by another person, and children mesmerized by Disney's version of AA Milne's ubiquitous characters will be none the wiser. It's bittersweet, to be sure....

Paul Rudd Got Busted by Barack Obama (VIDEO)

Actor Paul Rudd was shooting his latest film in Washington, D.C. While he was there, he ran into our nation's president -- and things went downhill after that. Paul was shooting 'How Do You Know' -- a movie where he plays a corporate executive. He and co-star Reese Witherspoon then went to the White House, where they met President Barack Obama. So, what was that like? On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Paul gave us the straight dope. While talking with David Letterman, the actor discussed a tale of ritual humiliation that took place within the Oval Office. As soon as he met President Obama, Paul broke out into a "flop sweat." Then, the president asked what his role was in the movie. "I'm playing this guy," Paul said. "He's getting indicted, his whole world is falling apart." " ... Oh, so you're playing a Congressman," Obama said....

Paul Gleason dead at 67

It's not often that a celebrity obituary throws me into such a sudden shock that I can't do anything but stare blankly at the screen for several minutes. Well, this is one of them. Actor Paul Gleason passed away on Saturday from a rare form of asbestos-related lung cancer. He was 67 years-old. Gleason has appeared in various television roles, but he's probably most recognized as the vicious Principal Vernon from The Breakfast Club. The film has a very special place in my heart because when my friends and I have to dress up in costume for something, we always go as the Club (and I'm always the Basketcase). This news is really quite upsetting. Time for me to break the news to the rest of my Breakfast Club....

Giving props to Paul Dini

Paul Dini is best known for writing for such animated series as Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Batman: the Animated Series, Krypto the Superdog, He-Man, and many, many others. George Lucas also selected him to pen episodes for his Star Wars cartoons Ewoks and Droids. There's a lot of us who grew up with Dini's work but know very little about him. Since he's one of those "behind the scenes" types you don't hear a lot about him, but the man has quite a hefty and impressive resume. He also has his own Live Journal that is quite entertaining. I especially enjoyed his attempt at trying to get into Mensa. Referring to the corpulent proctor as "Sans-A-Belt" was pure genius....

Ron Livingston Sort of Hates Paul Rudd (VIDEO)

How can anyone hate on actor Paul Rudd? He's so funny! And charming! ... Still, on the new 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 10PM ET on E!), one man finds a way. Actor Ron Livingston is starring in the new movie 'Dinner for Schmucks,' along with Mr. Rudd. And he somehow manages to express his anger, even though Paul hasn't necessarily done anything wrong. The tale of rage involves a failed audition, and also a poker game. Host Chelsea Handler expresses surprise that anyone could be annoyed with Paul Rudd. "Yeah; he's pretty likeable," she says. Then, Chelsea says this to Ron: "You seem really bitter."...

Lost for Dummies, courtesy of Paul Scheer

I think I'm one of only five people in the country who has never watched a second of Lost (yeah, I know... even I'm surprised I got a job here). No complicated reason; I just wasn't interested at the time.  By the time I got interested, I was so far behind that I knew I wasn't going to understand one bit of the show. It's quite a predicament, to be sure. What's a TV fan to do?Well, Paul Scheer, of VH1's Best Week Ever, is here to help. He has provided a "Lost for Dummies" guide at Paper Magazine's web site. ...

'Saturday Night Live' - Paul Rudd / Paul McCartney Recap

['Saturday Night Live' - 'Season 36, Episode 9'] Paul Rudd is, quite simply, one of the most accomplished straight men of this century. Not "straight", as in heterosexual, but rather "straight" as in "the guy in comedies that sets-up the 'funnyman' or 'the guy who needs to get all the laughs to compensate for things.' And by 'things' I mean: small wieners and low self-esteem." In this role, Rudd excels, often getting as many if not more laughs than his comedic partners in this, the age of anti-humor where the laughs come more from the reactions to, not delivery of, situations and punchlines (think 'The Office,' 'Arrested Development' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'). Now he takes another turn as the lead jokester, and we are left to hope he's taught the cast a thing or two about being straight....

In Treatment: Paul and Gina-Week One

(S01E05) "I think this was a mistake coming here today." - Paul Weston Now this is what I was waiting for. Sure, it was still essentially a single therapy session in real time for thirty minutes, but it was Gabriel Byrne on the patient side and the always brilliant Dianne Wiest as his therapist Gina. Only it's been nearly ten years since he's seen her due to some kind of bad history, and their professional relationship was more complicated than simply patient/therapist. So out of the blue he called her and she agreed to see him, but was he wanting to see her as a friend, a colleague, a therapist? Gina had no idea what Paul wanted, and I don't think Paul did either. As I expected, the Friday episodes will be the fulcrum on which the entire series balances, and if this episode is any indication, I officially think the series is going to be amazing. So much of the history of these two characters and the bad blood was hinted at, but thank god we weren't spoon fed information through awkward dialogue, and the ac...

Rand Paul Addresses "Stomping" Incident at Debate (VIDEO)

Violence struck just before Rand Paul, the Republican candidate for Kentucky's Senate seat, debated Democratic opponent Jack Conway. One of Paul's supporters tackled a protester who was trying to confront Paul as he walked to the hall. While the woman was on the ground, another of Paul's supporters placed his foot aggressively on the area around her shoulder and neck. Paul appeared on 'America's Newsroom' (Weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox News), where he addressed the incident. "What was your reaction that folks who were wearing Rand Paul T-shirts and hats treated a woman this way?" Martha MacCallum asked Paul. "We want everybody to be civil, we want this campaign to be about issues," Paul responded. "When we arrived, there was enormous passion on both sides ... lights flashing, people yelling and screaming, bumping up, there was a bit of a crowd control problem ... It was an unusual situation to have so many people so passionate on both sides, jockeying back and forth. And It wasn't something I like or anybo...

Too Much Stupidity for Paul in His Game-Show Host Audition on 'Paul Reiser Show' (VIDEO)

Paul Reiser is famous for his seven-year run on 'Mad About You.' And that's the problem. Now back on network television with 'The Paul Reiser Show' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC), the actor is taking a note from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' by playing a fictionalized version of himself. He even got Larry David in a cameo to suggest the very thing in a very meta-fictional moment. In the show, Paul's insecurities about his place in life come out when he realizes he really doesn't have a job anymore. And putting "former sitcom star" on school forms for his kids just looks weird....
