James Bond

Pierce Brosnan and Craig Ferguson Talk James Bond's Body Hair (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2011 5:00AM
Pierce Brosnan, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'With Pierce Brosnan on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), the conversation inevitably turned to James Bond, which he portrayed from 1995 to 2002.

Despite saying that he virtually jumped from television series 'Remington Steele' to Bond -- when apparently Geoff fell in love with him -- it was an eight-year gap during which he starred in several films.

But it always comes back to Bond. Craig Ferguson noted that current Bond Daniel Craig has no body hair, and wondered how that works for the secret agent. "I don't know where you keep your secret documents and stuff if you don't have at least some hair," he said. "Sean Connery was covered in hair."

John Barry, Movie and TV Composer, Dies at 77

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jan 31st 2011 5:12AM
John Barry, Feb. 2005Sad news today for fans of classic movie and TV scores: Legendary composer John Barry has died, aged 77.

The news first came from current 'Bond' composer David Arnold, who announced via Twitter, that "It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that John Barry passed away this morning."

Arnold went on to pay tribute to his predecessor: "I am profoundly saddened by the news but profoundly thankful for everything he did for music and for me personally."

The BBC confirmed reports of his death early Monday morning, citing relatives who said that Barry had died of a heart attack in New York on Sunday.

Stana Katic Shows Off Creepy, Murder-Themed Gifts From Fans (VIDEO)

Stana Katic Shows Off Creepy, Murder-Themed Gifts From FansStana Katic -- star of 'Castle' -- is an actress and an all-around good-looking lady. So it makes sense that she would receive odd gifts from semi-obsessive fans. On 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox), Stana mentions the topic of the weird presents that she gets in the mail. And coincidentally (or not coincidentally at all, considering that this is a talk show), the actress brought along a couple of the strangest gifts she has gotten. Including a totally terrifying notepad.

One of the gifts that Katic got is a weird coffee mug that looks like a gun, sort of. A little odd, but Katic likes it and calls it "wicked." She also thinks the gun-motif is appropriate, since she appeared in a James Bond movie.

Another gift: a notepad featuring a bloody dead body with a pen "stabbed" through its heart. Yikes! A little more creepy. But to her credit, Stana also has nice things to say about the notepad, saying that she gets the reference -- because she plays a detective who investigates murders on 'Castle.'

Christopher Chance Escapes from a Watery Grave on 'Human Target' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 25th 2010 2:34AM
Human Target, Mark ValleyJames Bond's got nothin' on Christopher Chance on 'Human Target' (8PM ET on Fox). Dumped into a swimming pool? No problem. Shoot somebody from under the water? Piece of cake. All with grace and charm.

In fact, the next time they're looking for a new 007, we nominate Mark Valley. But only if they shoot between seasons. We need our 'Target' fix.

Nice to see TV veteran Peter Wingfield as the bad guy, too.

Watch the video after the jump.

Five reasons I'm not hooked on NCIS: LA

ncis_la_cast
If I tell you right now, before November sweeps, that CBS will renew NCIS: Los Angeles for a second season, you won't be surprised. The pre-season projections for this show were that it was a guaranteed success. It wasn't only that it was a spinoff from CBS's top-rated drama series, NCIS. No, it was programming. CBS slotted NCIS: LA in the hour right after NCIS. It had a very strong spot, a monster lead in.

James Bond wants you to use the British post office

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 28th 2009 4:05PM
My favorite James Bond is still Sean Connery. Second is Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan is third, and Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby tie for fourth. Roger Moore? He just didn't do it for me (though a lot of that was because he was a victim of the 70s - bad clothes, way too much humor, and Bond in space because of Star Wars). Now Moore is doing ads for the British post office.

The odd thing? This is pretty much how lively Moore was in A View To A Kill.

Fringe casts General Hospital villain Sebastian Roche

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 22nd 2009 11:10AM
Sebastian_Roche_GHWhen you want to up the ante on a drama, create a great villain. To this day, the best James Bond movies have always been the ones with great villains. Fox's sci-fi drama Fringe is buying into that theory, because they've gone out and hired an actor who excels at playing evil. Fringe has cast Sebastian Roche in a recurring role as a new nemesis.If you saw Roche on General Hospital, you know he's brilliant.

His Fringe character doesn't have a name yet -- and least not one that they've released -- but the storyline is that he's from another dimension, not entirely human or android, and he's on a mission. He's a soldier who's supposed to collect data to open a "stable door to the other side."

Could it be an alternate universe? A parallel dimension? Some kind of time warp? The possibilities are wide open when it comes to Fringe.

Ted Kennedy enjoyed Bond and Bauer

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 27th 2009 11:36AM
Ted_Kennedy_US_senatorUnlike his three older brothers who all died suddenly – and tragically – the late Massachusetts senator Edward M. Kennedy knew that his final days were upon him. In the time he had left, Teddy, as he was known by friends and family, took the time to enjoy his life. That included still getting out on his boat to sail despite being wheelchair bound, as well as viewing all the James Bond movies, as well as 24 action hero Jack Bauer.

What's really fascinating about the latter two facts is that Kennedy was clearly entertained by both Bond and Bauer, men of action who didn't – and don't follow the rules. Bond, for instance, is in the service of her majesty's secret service, but he's a spy with a license to kill.

The Fourth is for sunburn, hamburgers, and TV marathons

Leave it to BeaverI'm not a big Fourth of July person. You'll pretty much see me in front of the television as much as you'll see me in front of the television on July 3. I'm not a big cookout/parades/fireworks/beach type of guy.

  • Sci-Fi will continue their Twilight Zone marathon.
  • TCM has Fourth of July/historical movies all day long.

Doctor Who vs James Bond

by Brad Trechak, posted May 15th 2009 4:29PM
Doctor WhoThis piece of news is from The Sun newspaper in England, so as always when I relay information from that particular source, take it with a grain of salt. With that in mind, The Sun is reporting that ex-Bond Timothy Dalton is in talks to appear as a villain in one or more of David Tennant's remaining Doctor Who specials.

While obviously Dalton would not play the main villain of the piece (that role has already been cast by a returning arch-nemesis), he's exactly the sort that Russell T. Davies would have play an evil businessman. I suspect that is the plan.

I'd be more impressed with they had gotten Roger Moore or Sean Connery to play a role in Who, but I think that would be pushing it.

For you Dalton fans (and I just loved him in the 80's Flash Gordon movie), it's just one more reason to tune in to the specials when they are broadcast later this year. Damn you, Sci Fi and/or BBCA for not broadcasting these specials in the U.S.!

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Lethal Weapon

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2009 10:10AM
chuck(S02E16) If you liked the beefcake on display last week, tonight there was a lot more of Barker, Cole Barker, and his hot bod. And it turned out that Barker was more than meets the eye.

Fortunately, there was also a lot more happening in Chuck's world as well, developments with Sarah, the Intersect, and his future roommate -- Sarah or Morgan. More on all that, after the jump.

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Beefcake

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 3rd 2009 9:34AM
chuck(S02E15) Chuck was in a weird place last night. The character, that is, not the show. The show picked up on a storyline from a few weeks back and set up a future episode with a new character that seemed to me a nice contrast to the Casey-Sarah-Chuck triple play.

Remember "Chuck Versus the Suburbs," when Andy Richter's corpse was dragged away in a body bag? Well, he wasn't resurrected on Fringe, like one commenter suggested. No, he's dead and his body included a belt that contained some top-secret data, most importantly, the identity of the Intersect, i.e. Chuck.

The timing of the discovery couldn't be worse, though, because Chuck had just decided to "dump" Sarah as a fake girlfriend, feeling that they had no fake/real future. Of course, be careful what you wish for, Charles. More after the jump.
