Rita Moreno Talks About Her Famous Flings on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 18th 2011 7:00AM
Rita Moreno on 'The Talk'Rita Moreno is what Tracy Jordan would call an "EGOT," having won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in her career, which started when she lent her voice to Spanish language versions of English language films at age 11. She is now 79, and has had her share of romantic involvements in Hollywood, which she detailed Friday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS).

As the hosts tossed out names to her, she gave descriptions of her former co-stars, flings, and lovers. Morgan Freeman was "monumental and so sexy." Jack Nicholson was a "dirty, dirty boy." She dated Marlon Brando for more than six years, but went mum on details about him. She did try to make Brando jealous at one point by dating Elvis Presley, whom she called "beautiful but boring."

According to Moreno, the ploy worked, and "it made Marlon cah-razy," which impressed the audience and the hosts. "You are a spicy little thing, Rita Moreno," said Holly Robinson Peete.

David Duchovny Puts Jay Leno on the Spot (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Apr 8th 2010 3:15AM
David Duchovny Puts Jay Leno on the SpotActor David Duchovny is apparently not a big Elvis Presley fan, because he recently avoided going on a trip to Graceland. In fact, Duchovny is dismissive of Elvis, and of the whole Graceland concept. "[It's] like Legoland... for a music that I'm not in love with." Unfortunately, Duchovny made this statement as a guest on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). And Jay Leno is a huge Elvis fan. And so, Duchovny's casual remark started a long debate.

'Elvis' - DVD Review

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 2nd 2010 3:03PM
The cover of the Elvis Movie DVDMy eyes didn't see this movie when it came out since they weren't even a fully functioning organism until a year after it hits the airwaves. But my brain carries a fleeting memory of a syndicated run of John Carpenter's TV movie about the King of Rock 'n Roll.

I only saw one brief scene, but I remember thinking that this must have been a theatrically released movie because it felt like one. Back in the 80's, it was hard not to be able to tell the difference between a melodramatic TV mini-series and an honest and bracing biopic even if my TV diet consisted mostly of 'The Real Ghostbusters' and game shows that forced kids to dive in slop for a trip to Universal Studios.

Now almost fifteen years after that brief moment and more than 30 years after the TV movie told the life story of the King just a few years after his untimely passing, 'Elvis' returns to a TV near you in the form of a new DVD.

Elvis 75th Birthday Movie Marathon (6:15AM, TCM)
Bust out the fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, because it's Elvis Presley's 75th birthday -- a day worth celebrating, even if you don't believe The King is still alive and hanging out at a truck stop in Michigan. And though his movie career took a back seat to his legendary music career, this all-day lineup of Elvis flicks makes for fun viewing. Among the highlights: 'Spinout' (9:30AM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Shelley Fabares!; 'Speedway' (2:45PM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Nancy Sinatra!; 'Blue Hawaii' (4:30PM) -- Elvis as a rich playboy frolicking in Hawaii!; 'Viva Las Vegas' (6:15PM) -- Elvis is a race car driver wooing Ann-Margret!; 'Elvis: That's the Way It Is 2001' (10PM) -- Elvis in concert in Vegas!; and 'Jailhouse Rock' (midnight) -- Elvis as a convict who becomes a rock star! Thank you, TCM, thankyouverymuch.

ABC drops Adam Lambert again and again

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 3rd 2009 11:28AM
adam_lambert_sittingWhen Adam Lambert was competing on American Idol, there were times when his performances reminded the judges -- and viewers -- of Elvis Presley. And other rock icons, too. It was all part of Adam's appeal. But now that he's promoting his new CD and did a "scandalous" performance at the American Music Awards, he's really getting the Elvis treatment. There's fear that his actions, which are more graphic than anything Elvis ever did, will go too far.

Today, Adam tweeted that ABC had cancelled two more spots on the network -- his upcoming Jimmy Kimmel Live! date and a New Year's Eve performance. Adam added that nobody should blame ABC for the cancellations because it was pressure from the FCC that prompted ABC's action. So maybe we should really be blaming Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake for the infamous Super Bowl breast/costume malfunction? ABC previously dumped Adam from Good Morning America.

It'll have celebrity interviews including Simon himself, footage of Susan's hometown, her TV appearances till now, and -- naturally -- Susan singing songs from I Dreamed A Dream, the new CD.

George Clooney, Elvis, the cops and TNT

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 27th 2009 1:06PM
George_Clooney_headGeorge Clooney learned a lot about television toiling away on The Facts of Life and E/R. The latter wasn't NBC medical drama that made him a star. I'm talking about the 1984 Elliott Gould sitcom on CBS that lasted a year, just 22 episodes.

But the point is this: he may be a major movie star today, but George knows and appreciates television. That could be why George Clooney's behind Delta Blues, a cop drama that TNT has just picked up.

I use the term drama loosely, because it's something goofier than a straight drama. The lead character is an Elvis Presley impersonator when he's not working for the Memphis Police Department. One more thing: Like Elvis, he honors his mother... and lives with her. Does that make him a mama's boy? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Johnny Carson... warts and all

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 3rd 2008 10:25AM
The great CarnackIf you believe in such things, Johnny Carson is likely spinning in his grave right now. The great star of The Tonight Show is about to be revealed, the good, the bad and especially the ugly and unsavory, in a memoir.

Johnny Carson's attorney Henry Bushkin is writing a book about the star, spilling all the secrets that he kept confidential while Johnny was alive, and it's all legal. Bushkin is looking for one more way to cash in on his client, one he soaked plenty when Johnny was alive.

Carson is a beloved TV icon, maybe the most beloved after Lucille Ball, but nobody believes that the affable, funny man who came into our bedrooms every night was a sweetheart. He was known to hold a grudge, to be snippy and cranky on occasion, and to have a temper.

Stump the King - Sci-Fi

Jeff Yagher from Star Trek: VoyagerI got a great letter this week from a TV fan named Jim R.

"Dear TV Squad, About 15 years ago, I watched an episode of a scifi/fantasy TV show wherein an Elvis impersonator traveled back in time to meet (and eventually kill) the real Elvis. Could you please tell me the name of this program? Thanks"

So You Think You Can Dance: Week 2

by Brett Love, posted Jun 21st 2007 4:04AM
Anya & Danny - So You Think You Can Dance(S03E08) It's becoming quite apparent that this is going to be a tough race. The competition is just entering the second week and there really isn't anyone that sticks out as being noticeably below the rest of the group. Depending on the styles drawn each week, every team in the competition has the potential to have the best performance of the night. It should make some difficult decisions for both the voters and the judges.

This week Nigel and Mary were joined at the judges table by Mia Michaels for what turned out to be quite an impressive group of performances. She told Cat that she was disappointed to see Ricky leave and that America got it wrong, putting the best three male dancers in the bottom three. I didn't agree with Ricky being let go last week, but I think she's going a little far there.
