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

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.

Lorraine Nicholson Talks Lakers Games With Dad Jack Nicholson on 'Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Lorraine Nicholson, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Lorraine Nicholson wound up talking about her father's infamous support of the Los Angeles Lakers during her time on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Jack Nicholson casts a pretty big shadow, so Lorraine is going to have to work hard to get out from under it.

Luckily, she didn't seem to mind reminiscing with Jay Leno about all the time she spent courtside with her father and brother. Certainly those are probably very happy memories for her.

There is, however, one truth that she appears to have completely missed.

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award' (VIDEO)

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award'The stars came out to honor a great director at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award 2010: Mike Nichols' (Sat., 9PM ET on TV Land). Famed director Mike Nichols has been making films for more than five decades now, and during that time, he's made a lot of friends in the industry. Among the celebs in attendance were Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

It was a night of praise for the creator of such classic films as 'The Graduate,' 'Working Girl' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' "You're more than a great director," Dustin Hoffman said to his friend. "You're a real artist down to your toes."

The one puzzling speech of the night came from Jack Nicholson -- who arrived late to the ceremony to begin with. "This is so wonderful what everyone is saying about you," Jack told the director. But the actor then continued with this head-scratching comment: "I have to say, remember, Mike: even oysters have enemies."

Huh? Say what now? "Even oysters have enemies?" If anyone figures out exactly what that means, please do let us know.

The NBA Playoffs Tip-Off with Timberlake and Foxx

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 17th 2010 8:21PM
jamie_foxx_justin_timberlake_nbaThe post-season has arrived for the National Basketball Association. The NBA Playoffs are upon us, starting today on ABC and ESPN, and tomorrow night on TNT, and that means the networks are shifting into overdrive to present all the games, all the action, and -- especially -- all the stars to the viewing public. Shaq, Kobe, LeBron, Dwayne, Dirk, Rajon ... if you're a fan, you don't need the last names. That's how big the star power is for NBA elite players.

It's perhaps even bigger than the NFL or any other major league. And that's one reason why the NBA is not the number one sport in America, but it is the number one marketed sport. That's a point illustrated in the new promo for the TNT broadcasts featuring music and movie stars Jamie Foxx and Justin Timberlake extolling the virtues of the NBA playoffs.

My Own Worst Enemy: Breakdown (series premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 14th 2008 9:05AM
Christian Slater(S01E01) Watching My Own Worst Enemy is like deja vu. You feel like you've seen something like this before. Was it The Bourne Identity, Casino Royale, Minority Report, Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Or maybe it was something on TV, like that failed Ray Liotta series Smith or Jennifer Garner's Alias or The Bionic Woman or The Six Million Dollar Man or something else...

See, that's the problem with My Own Worst Enemy. It's familiar but not in a cool way. Rather it's derivative and not very compelling. NBC is already doing a double life, super secret spy thing much better in the ratings-challenged Chuck.

The obvious appeal of My Own Worst Enemy is two-fold: lots of action including cool gadgets, cars (thank you, GM), guns, blood and the mystery, combined with the charm and complexity of Christian Slater. Slater's a fun actor, a sort of Jack Nicholson only younger. I remember when he first started on Ryan's Hope! He's got something.

ABC sets up shop in Eastwick

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 12th 2008 8:23AM
The Witches of EastwickWith Maggie Friedman (Dawson's Creek) behind it, I have to imagine that The Witches of Eastwick ABC pilot project just announced may feature a younger cast than the 1987 film on which it is being based. The announcement specifically states that it is a variation on the film as opposed to the controversial John Updike novel. The book has been blasted for being misogynistic, while the movie offered more in female empowerment.

This will be third time someone has made a go of adapting the film for television. I can't help but think think of this as a more serious Charmed. Will the male antagonist, played by Jack Nicholson in the film, remain throughout the series, or will he just be an early problem dealt with by the three witchy leads? Considering Friedman's resume also includes the horridly under-appreciated Jack and Bobby and the brilliant Once and Again, there are a lot of ways she could go with this.

The Golden Globes Play-Along-at-Home Game!

Let's face it - awards shows are mostly lots of boring stuff with the occasional exciting moment when the awards you care about come up. To make things more exciting for you, though, TV Squad has come up with this fun-filled Play-Along-at-Home game to help occupy your time during the more mundane moments. We're not saying this is a drinking game, but, you know, if you wanted to make it a drinking game, or a potato chip eating game, or whatever, you could do that.

Here's how you play along. Just keep score at home (or drink, or eat a chip, or whatever you want) everytime you see the following things happen during the broadcast of the Golden Globes:

The Golden Globes home game

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 15th 2006 8:09AM
NBC has created a game on its website to go along with the live telecast of the Golden Globes, which air on Monday night (8-11 pm EST). It will feature a film and television trivia game that parallels whatever is happening on the Globes. It looks like the website is also going to have polls up as each category is announced so the internet can vote for who it wants to be Best Actress or whatever, and the results will appear in real-time up until the winner is announced. I think it would be interesting to see who people are hoping will win each category, compared to who actually wins.

You know what the website needs, that it doesn't have? A Golden Globes drinking game. Somebody kisses Jack Nicholson's ass? Take a drink! Someone does an impression of Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch? Drink! Scripted, playful banter between presenters falls flat? Drink up!
