According to Deadline.com, DreamWorks TV has sent out a spec for the project -- entitled 'Higher Learning' -- to several pay cable networks, and is hoping for a quick decision. Details are sketchy right now, but the TV drama would see Berry starring as a college professor.
The script was written by 30-year industry veteran Lee Rose, who was queen of TV movies in their heyday during the 1990s. Since then Rose has worked as a director and producer on series such as 'Weeds,' 'Related,' 'Haven' and 'Greek.'
Latifah appeared with Halle Berry and Katie Holmes to pay tribute to Oprah Winfrey. "I don't usually get nervous at things like that," she said, "but to walk out there with Halle and Katie and deliver our initial, you know, sort of speech, I was like, 'OK, you've got to get down those stairs, don't trip! Do a good job, really show up for her."
Latifah said there was also a bit of melancholy to the proceedings, as Winfrey said goodbye to the show and her fans. She's not sure Winfrey was completely settled it for herself, but said it looked like she had a blast.
Tony Curtis, Gloria Stuart, Leslie Nielsen, Lynn Redgrave, Pete Postlethwaite and Dennis Hopper were among the actors honored. Halle Berry then offered a special thanks to African-Americann entertainer Lena Horne. But where were Corey Haim, Peter Graves and Betty Garrett?
Leno responded, "It's orgasmic?!" And with that information, he began pouring popcorn into her cupped hands until it overflowed all around her. She played along and faked an orgasm. Cut to commercial.
Berry will make her Broadway debut opposite Samuel L. Jackson in a play called 'The Mountaintop' next year. There are only two characters -- Jackson plays Martin Luther King, Jr., and Berry plays his maid. The play takes place on the day King was killed.
It's not the lightest project for your welcome to the big stage, but Berry welcomes the challenge. "It must mean it's what I'm supposed to do next if it scares me to death," she says.
Then again, she might be ready to do something a little more serious after filming 'The Skank Robbers' with Jamie Foxx. That will probably be scarier for us than her.
'Fashion's Night Out' Draws Justin Timberlake, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry and Many More Celebs (VIDEO)
The fashion industry's open house took place across the world -- from Milan, Moscow and London to New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles. Halle Berry was one of many attendees. "I care about our economy, and a night like this sort of infuses some energy into our fashion industry," Berry said.
Other A-listers on the scene (and in this clip) included Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez (launching yet another fragrance), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Naomi Campbell and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

According to Brosnan, he was drinking in a pub in Dublin when an appreciative young fan shook his hand. After doing so, the man drew back his hand, stared at it, and said, "This is the closest I'll ever get to Halle Berry's ass."

The honors from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which some consider a precursor to the Oscars, will be broadcast live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sun., Jan. 17, 8PM ET. This year's telecast will also air live on the West Coast, beginning at 5PM.
Berry, Farrell and Fox join the previously announced Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Mickey Rourke on the growing roster of award presenters. In addition (and as also previously announced), the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement will be presented by Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio to Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.
Unlike The Daily Show correspondents, Jay's correspondents are treated like guests rather than as a part of the show. Maybe, as time goes on and we see them over and over again, this will change. Perhaps they could even develop their own unique voice that we'll find ourselves looking forward to.
Tonight, D.L. Hughley went to speak to government representatives in California to talk about the sad state of the state's economy. From there, he wound up putting on a bake sale to save the state. So it was a bit like what would happen on The Daily Show after all.
Hudson was photographed by Annie Leibovitz at the Apollo Theater in New York. But there is already controversy brewing online over the cover image of Hudson with her mouth wide open, and cleavage spilling out.
At Concreteloop.com all of Hudson's Vogue photos were criticized as unflattering. They asked the question, "WTF was Annie Leibovitz smoking that day?"
Most of the other television awards followed similar lines. The award for Best Drama went to Grey's Anatomy. Best Actor was Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy). Best Actress went to Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives). Best Competition/Reality show was, of course, American Idol. Best Animated Show was The Simpsons. The only real surprise came in the new categories. Best New Drama was Heroes, which isn't a surprise, but Best New Comedy, The Class? I didn't see that one coming. The television awards were rounded out with Ellen Degeneres winning Best Talk Show Host.

Now, I don't have the issue in front of me, but did the 26 take up 26 spots in the top 100 (boy, that would really make People's job easier) or did they just include them as "one?" That would seem like an insult to the women, eh? That they're all lumped together and interchangeable.
Wouldn't it have been funny if they picked 25 of the models, and just didn't tell us which one they left out?
