Goldie Hawn Eyes Return to TV With 'Viagra Diaries,' 'The Big C' Partners With American Cancer Society and More
According to Deadline, Hawn has been tapped to star in the half-hour comedy from 'Sex and the City' creator Darren Star. Hawn and Star will executive produce the project based on the book by Barbara Rose Brooker.
The pilot follows a woman, played by Hawn, whose husband leaves her, making her single for the first time in 35 years.
This will be Hawn's first role since the 2002 film 'The Banger Sisters.' The Oscar winner got her start on TV with 'Good Morning, World' and 'Laugh-In.'

Spoilers(?) coming up!
In an interesting article at IGN.com, blogger Travis Fickett points out that there used to be a line of demarcation between the worlds of acting: film actors vs. television actors. But nowadays the stars are going back and forth a lot more fluidly.
I'm not going to reveal who's in the top ten but I will share some of my favorites from the list (#50-11). Please feel free to share your favorites in the comments. As for me, my favorites are all funny blondes -- maybe blondes do have more fun (at least these ones do).
I didn't see a single moment of Chevy Chase's short-lived talk show when it aired, probably because my attention was diverted to the shake ups at more established late night fare such as The Tonight Show and Late Night. Chase's show came along the same time Conan O'Brien was slipping into Letterman's slot on NBC, and as we all know, The Chevy Chase Show never quite gained an audience. I think after you watch a clip (after the jump) of Chase interviewing actress Goldie Hawn, you'll begin to understand why. This four minutes of "interview," awkward dancing, and a gag involving a birthday cake that falls flat in more ways than one culminate into one glaring fact: it takes a special kind of person to helm a late night talk show, and Chevy Chase wasn't it. A shame really, because in the right circumstances the man can be quite funny. Watch if you dare.
Thanks to Josh for hepping us to the clip.
