'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
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? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

Dylan McDermott Was a Waiter to the Stars in His Dad's Restaurant (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 12th 2011 5:15AM
Dylan McDermott, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Dylan McDermott used to rub elbows with celebrities on a regular basis, which must make for some awkward flashbacks when he meets them now that he's one as well. On 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), he recalled waiting tables at his father's restaurant, where he served people like Michelle Pfeiffer and John Belushi.

We were pretty impressed with McDermott seemed to remember exactly Belushi's order, even after all these years. "He had the same thing faithfully," McDermott said. "He'd have the scrambled eggs with potatoes and toast and bacon and just put ketchup on everything."

Dylan McDermott Knows What Women Want on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 29th 2011 5:15AM
Dylan McDermott, 'Chelsea Lately'It's always a bold claim when any man claims to know what women want. Only Mel Gibson ever really figured it out, and that's only because he could read their minds. But Dylan McDermott took his boldness one step further by talking about it on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

So, not only does he claim to know what they want, he's going to put it to the test right there in front of a woman. And his theory was actually pretty simple.

"I think the most important thing to a woman is talking to them," he said. "Men want to have sex." And there it is.

'The Middle' - 'The Bee' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 4th 2010 2:30AM
Eden Sher, 'The Middle'(S01E16) The Hecks went on their first road trip, as we found out something that Brick is really good at, and something that happens more often than families would like to admit. I've had my birthday forgotten more than once by my busy family, and it made me feel about as small as Sue did.

However, I was never given the level of power Frankie gave her over the family trip to Chicago. Guilt is certainly a powerful agent in making potentially poor decisions.

As for Brick, it shouldn't come as a real surprise that he's a great speller. With his nose constantly in books his parents probably couldn't even read, how could he not be?

Jane After Dark: Ally McBeal, season one

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 25th 2009 3:03PM
Ally McBeal, season oneIt's always interesting when you've been hearing about a series for years and then finally sit down to watch it. All the little pieces and pop references of Ally McBeal are starting to come together, like Fishisms, The Biscuit, dancing babies and Vonda Shepard. I have seen the light. Well, at least season one of the light.

I mentioned in my preview last week that Ally McBeal seems like a mix of The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd and My World and Welcome To It. Having reached the end of season one, I still feel that way, with maybe a little Buffy the Vampire Slayer thrown in (hey, don't throw things at me, Ally looks like Buffy).

Molly Dodd because Ally is funny, desperate, strong and cute. My World because of all her fantasies, though not always in cartoon form as was the case with John Monroe / James Thurber.

Dark Blue -- An early look

Dylan McDermott in Dark Blue
I've been really curious to see what TNT's Dark Blue is all about. It's got a few things going for it right off the bat: producer Jerry Bruckheimer and lead actor Dylan McDermott. I can't say I'm all about the police dramas, but those two guys made me want to check it out.

Plus, it's on TNT, which has been running edgier shows lately, like Saving Grace, The Closer, and Leverage. The network is sort of a cross between HBO and USA, with some FX thrown in.

On my first viewing of the Dark Blue pilot, it came across as just another procedural about a brooding cop (McDermott) whose team walks the line between right and wrong. But I knew in my heart there was more, so I watched it again.

TNT adds two series to its lineup

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 8th 2009 2:07PM
TNTTNT is furthering its investment in original drama by adding two new shows to its programming, increasing the number of original hour-long dramas they offer to seven. The first new show is The Line, a cop drama produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Dylan McDermott. The second is a medical drama called Time Heals starring Jada Pinkett Smith.

This seems to me an example of a trickle-down effect. Due to the Internet and video-on-demand, reruns simply don't work anymore in keeping a network in business. Original drama worked so well for premium networks such as HBO and Showtime that standard cable stations such as AMC, TNT and several others took it upon themselves to do the same.

I guess Leverage is such a winner for the network that it can afford to add to its line-up. At this rate, there is going to be too much original television offered weekly for a human being to possibly keep up (if there isn't already), which is why video-on-demand was invented in the first place.

Dylan McDermott cast in Bruckheimer's new TNT drama

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 7th 2008 12:36PM
Dylan McTNT knows drama. That's their logo, their mantra, their promise to viewers, and with The Closer, for instance, they've delivered. Now they're prepping another new drama, this one with some major experience in front of the camera and behind it.

It sort of reads like a dream team. Dylan McDermott starring in a Jerry Bruckheimer drama called The Line for TNT. Only it's not a dream. It's a pilot for 2009.

Instead of sharing this one with CBS where his shows dominate the line up -- CSI, CSI: New York, CSI: Miami, Eleventh Hour, Cold Case, Without A Trace, The Amazing Race -- Jerry Bruckheimer has decided to share the wealth a bit. He's moved this one over to TNT. However, he's bringing in CSI vets Jonathan Littman (six-time Emmy winner) and Danny Cannon to produce and direct, respectively.

Casting News: Christopher Titus, Carrie Ann Moss, Billy Baldwin, more

by Brett Love, posted Feb 27th 2007 10:45AM
Christopher TitusIt's that time of the year. People are being cast in pilots left and right and some interesting stuff has been announced. At ABC, Christopher Titus (Titus) has landed one of the lead roles in an untitled project from Warner Bros. The show focuses on CEOs and also stars Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and Michael Vartan (Alias). McDermott and Vartan as CEOs is an easy sell. But Christopher Titus, Senior VP Harvard graduate? That's different, and something I look forward to checking out.

Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) is set to star in ABC's Suspect. The show is a procedural that will solve crimes by tracking suspects through a lineup. She's joined by Eric Palladino (ER) and Kathleen Munroe (Beautiful People). The ABC track record for procedurals is less than impressive, but the addition of Guy Ritchie (Snatch) as director is intriguing enough to give this one a look.

NBC and CBS bring in the replacements

by Brett Love, posted Oct 12th 2006 3:32PM
Stanley TucciWith Kidnapped shuffled to a new night to finish out its run, and Smith pulled from the schedule completely, NBC and CBS have a couple slots to fill. The Emmy-winning Medium will return to NBC for its third season sometime in mid November, taking over the Wednesday at 10PM slot. CBS will fill Tuesday at 10PM with 3 Lbs starting on November 14th.

3 Lbs is about the relationship between a brilliant, but arrogant, neurosurgeon, and the rising star that works for him. Originally it was to star Dylan McDermott, but now will feature Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, Murder One) and Mark Feuerstein (West Wing, Good Morning Miami). I'm not sure about Feuerstein in this role, we'll have to wait and see, but I'll give anything with Stanley Tucci in it a look. This character sounds like he could have a little Richard Cross in him, which would be a good thing.
