"To be able to be on a hit show, 'Dragnet' and to come back and be on another hit show is something that not very many actors get to do in their careers," Matt Belloni of the 'Hollywood Reporter' observed in a discussion.
Lately, Deen has been getting some backlash for the high fat and salt content of her food. Earlier this year, chef and host of 'No Reservations' Anthony Bourdain said she was, "the most dangerous person to America." Rather than alter her recipes, Deen has advocated moderation in the frequency of eating southern cooking. "I don't do it seven days a week, but when I do, I do it," she said with a smile.
"I always tell people it's the same act that ran on the other end of the dinner table ... he was amazingly in character for his entire life," Brian said. "He was himself whether at home or in front of the television camera."
"One of the most important things for me was not feeling like I was alone," Lily said. "The more I got involved with my community, the more I felt like I was helping other families." In the episode, Lily and Elmo will volunteer at a food pantry. "A lot of the time people don't talk about it, but once you do, you realize you just feel better, and people can find comfort in each other."
'Growing Hope Against Hunger' airs Sun., Oct. 9 at 7PM ET on PBS.
In the clip, Rooney laments the need for warnings not to eat detergent and crusades against the cotton balls that come packaged in pill bottles. He proudly states that he'll never trim his eyebrows and wonders just how varied mix nuts are. All in all, it's a great reminder of what made Andy Rooney America's slightly perturbed next-door neighbor.
"I've tried to correct what's wrong with the world over the years, and it's discouraging to note what little effect I've had," Rooney observes. "They're still putting cotton in pill bottles."
They covered his work on 'Saturday Night Live,' where he played everyone from Stevie Wonder to Buckwheat, his hit stand-up specials like 'Delirious,' and blockbuster films like 'Beverly Hills Cop.'
The piece also showed an interview clip from shortly after Murphy's Golden Globe win for 'Dreamgirls' in which he indicated he wanted to try some new things. "I've been in the movie business for a while but still a relatively young man," he said, "so I want to get to try and do some different stuff. So when I look back on, when I'm really old I can look back and be like, wow, I did everything."
"You mean an old woman, is that what you mean?" joked Mirren. She then went on to credit the greater variety of roles available to female actors to the fact that three generations of women have risen through the ranks in various professions.
"Now we have all of those women, they're all in their 50s and their 60s and they are incredibly powerful in the world," said Mirren. "And people are looking at that going, oh, I see. Yes, women count. Women are powerful. Women have a voice. And as soon as you get that, it's reflected in the world of drama."
Somebody asked the question on the Walk of Fame's Facebook page, and were told "Hell to the no." 'Early' reported that people noticed the response, including reality stars. "The criteria for getting a star is longevity in the field of entertainment, of five years or more, awards - Emmys, Oscars, Grammys," said Martinez. "Philanthropic work that they do."
I love animation, but I have to admit my knowledge of anime is rather limited. There's a lot of anime I enjoy and admire, but what I've seen doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this popular animation style.
If you love anime, or you just want to start at the very beginning of this art form, Digital Meme is releasing a DVD titled "Classic Japanese Anime." Don't expect stuff like AstroBoy, Speed Racer or Gigantor in this set. Instead, think silent animation from the '20s and '30s. Some of the works contained in this DVD set were originally shown in theaters with a separate audio track played on a gramophone record. If your interest in anime goes far beyond casual admiration, this is something worth spending $110.00 on. Also, every one of the fifty-five cartoons is subtitled, so there's none of that gaudy American dubbing to ruin it.
The set releases on April 30.

Cartoon Planet, a personal favorite of mine, is being re-aired during Adult Swim. The series was a spin-off of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and was geared towards a younger crowd but still maintained the surreality and goofiness of the original. Space Ghost hosted the show with his sidekicks/enemies Zorak and Brak. Of course, the show airs at 5:30 a.m., but hey, that's why God invented the DVR*, right? Cartoons from Bugs Bunny and Popeye and the like would be shown between segments featuring songs, poems, and other assorted nonsense from Space Ghost and his pals.
*Matthew 13:5: "And so it was in the town of Bethlehem the Angel Gabriel did descend from heaven with DVRs for all the people, for they had crops to tend to, but none could stand to miss the Lakers game, and were low of spirit."
