A Margarita Primes the Karaoke Pump for Chris O'Donnell on 'Ellen DeGeneres' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 12th 2010 6:51PM
Chris O'Donnell likes to get dangerous -- singing karaoke.

O'Donnell admitted to Ellen DeGeneres on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) that he likes to sing karaoke "but generally not in a sober state." "What do you have to drink if you want to sing karaoke?" DeGeneres asked. "I'll have a little Margarita or something," O'Donnell replied. Then DeGeneres reached behind her and pulled out a Margarita, and O'Donnell launched into a karaoke version of John Denver's 'Take Me Home, Country Roads.'

Is this what they call a 'Rocky Mountain High'?

Sam and G. Battle Bad Guys on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (VIDEO)

NCIS: Los Angeles, LL Cool J, Chris O'DonnellThere was some serious fight choreography on 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (Tue., 9PM ET on CBS), when Sam and G. found themselves smack in the middle of a hairy situation.

While we always root for the good guys, it would probably be more true to life if one of them actually got knocked out now and then. They always seem to come out with nary a scratch.

Not that we're complaining. We don't want anything to happen to Chris O'Donnell or LL Cool J's pretty faces.

Five reasons I'm not hooked on NCIS: LA

If I tell you right now, before November sweeps, that CBS will renew NCIS: Los Angeles for a second season, you won't be surprised. The pre-season projections for this show were that it was a guaranteed success. It wasn't only that it was a spinoff from CBS's top-rated drama series, NCIS. No, it was programming. CBS slotted NCIS: LA in the hour right after NCIS. It had a very strong spot, a monster lead in.

Things I don't get about NCIS: Los Angeles

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Oct 12th 2009 2:05PM
NCIS Los AngelesI love military style series. I haven't missed one episode of JAG or its spin-off NCIS over the years -- I even watched reruns, including airings dubbed in French! -- and have watched all NCIS: Los Angeles since it began.

What I like most about NCIS: LA is that they do undercover missions, taking different personae and using gadgets, and that it stars one of my movie crushes when I was a teen, Chris O'Donnell, as well as the talented Linda Hunt.

Sadly, there are small things that I don't get about the series. These small issues are sort of bugging me and making me not enjoy the show as much as I would like as I keep asking myself these questions every episode.

Do you share the same issues? Do you have answers for me so I can enjoy the show as I want to? The list of things I don't get about NCIS: LA coming up!

The worlds of NCIS and rap music, together at last

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 16th 2009 3:27PM
I don't think of LL Cool J as a rap star anymore, I think of him as an actor. But this video below showcases both of his talents. It's for the new NCIS spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles, which I'm sure will be shortened to NCIS: LA at some point.

The song is called "No Crew Is Superior" and goes on waaaaaaay too long, but it does show a lot of clips from the show.

CBS greenlights three new dramas for fall

by Allison Waldman, posted May 17th 2009 1:18PM
Alex MoonlightThis Wednesday, CBS will make its official announcement for the 2008-09 season, but word has already leaked out that there will be three new drama series in CBS's new schedule. The NCIS spinoff, which I would have nixed, is in there, as well as a Julianna Margulies show called The Good Wife, and an Alex O'Loughlin vehicle set in the medical field and dealing with organ donors called Three Rivers. The latter may not have the sex appeal of Moonlight, but how much you want to bet the O'Loughlin fans will be tuning in?

All three of these shows are one-hour dramas, so that means the rumors about Without A Trace, Cold Case and The Unit all being on the bubble were true. Cold Case had a strong finish with a two-parter that performed very well in the ratings, so it could be safe, but the other two are likely to be ending their runs.

Why CBS shouldn't pick up the NCIS spinoff

by Allison Waldman, posted May 15th 2009 1:35PM
NCIS spinoff
Next Wednesday, CBS will be announcing its schedule for the new season, and while rumors have swirled that Cold Case or Without A Trace might be on the chopping block -- despite good ratings -- one sure thing seems to be the spinoff from NCIS.

Well, now that I've seen the two-part NCIS episode that served as a pilot for the show, I'm hoping that CBS gives this new series a thumbs-down. I don't expect that to happen, but if it were my decision, I wouldn't dump a solid series with a loyal viewership like Cold Case or Without A Trace, for the hope of LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell's overly fussy, overly procedural NCIS derivative step-child.

NCISThis was the second part of "Legend," the episodes that are acting as the NCIS spinoff starring Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. It looks like a sure thing for the fall, though CBS will make it official at their upfront on May 20.

What did you think of this two-parter? Can you imagine following O'Donnell and LL Cool J for as many seasons as you've followed Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly?

So ... what did you think of the first part of NCIS' big spinoff episodes? "Legend" is the episode that serves as the spinoff launch for a new series starring Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J. Maybe this is the first step in an NCIS franchise, a la CSI. Let's hope not.

Will Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J star in an NCIS spinoff?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 6th 2009 3:09PM
ncisThis is what I call thinking out of the box. Instead of simply replicating NCIS, the producers seem to be envisioning a completely different show. Reports claim that the CBS spinoff of NCIS may star Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J.

Could you find two more different actors to pair in a procedural? (Okay, Ice-T and Richard Belzer on Law & Order: SVU aren't a typical teaming either, but at that's supposedly a New York police squad.)

Anyway, it's still in the talking stages, but it's exciting nonetheless. O'Donnell, best known for playing Robin in two Batman movies, being Al Pacino's young charge in Scent of a Woman, and more recently hunked it up as Dr. Finn Dandridge on Grey's Anatomy, would be playing an investigator for the Navy who's a master of disguise. Apparently, he can fake out everyone around him.

TCM presents movies for kids - The Essentials Jr.

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 11th 2008 1:24PM
Essentials Jr.Way back in the early 1970's, when I was a kid (I'm not that old!), I remember seeing some amazing movies on the CBS Children's Film Festival. It was on either Saturday or Sunday afternoons and I vaguely recall my mother encouraging me to watch. Kukla, Fran and Ollie introduced the movies and to this day, I can still remember seeing classic foreign films that were made for children like The Red Balloon (French), Hand in Hand (British) and Skinny and Fatty (Japanese). I think those movies may have been the first that really got be interested in film.

Turner Classic Movies seems to be providing a similar service for kids today, albeit by presenting great classics from Hollywood's golden era. TCM started a new series called Essentials Jr. Grey's Anatomy star Chris O'Donnell (Scent of a Woman) co-hosts with Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine). Together, they provide introductions and discuss the films, movies that are picked to be just right for kids. According to TCM, "The chosen films are ones that any cinema-literate child should know about and be able to enjoy with family and friends including grown-ups."
