Jamie Lee Curtis NCISJamie Lee Curtis has booked her first TV guest star gig since 1996 and will appear on two episodes of 'NCIS.'

According to TV Guide, Curtis will play Charlotte Ryan, a single mom who works for the Office of the Inspector General in the Defense Department. Look for Curtis to spar with Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team.

"Jamie's shoot-from-the-hip style embodies everything we want from [Charlotte Ryan] -- humor, heart, strength and a lot of fun," Gary Glasberg, executive producer of 'NCIS,' said in a statement. "We couldn't be more excited she's here."

Glasberg said they're expecting real chemistry between Curtis' character and Gibbs.

Curtis' last credited guest role on an established series was in a 1996 episode of 'The Drew Carey Show.'

Jamie Lee Curtis Felt More Like a Fan of Her Father, Tony Curtis, Than a Daughter (VIDEO)

Jamie Lee Curtis, 'The Talk'Most of us have some ideas about fatherhood, and we're told that fathers play an important role and that they should be involved in their kids lives. And yet, on 'The Talk' (Weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Jamie Lee Curtis talked candidly about her own famous father's lack of involvement in her life. Perhaps even more surprising, she didn't seem particularly bothered by it.

She also described Tony Curtis as a fiction her father created. "This is a guy ... was in the Navy. ... He was a guy from the streets of New York and he became this other thing. He changed his name and he changed his whole life. And the invention of Tony Curtis was his life."

"The Situation" Talks Stripping, and 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

'The Situation' Talks Stripping, and 'Dancing With the Stars'Are we getting tired of seeing 'Jersey Shore' stars show up on talk shows yet? No? Not yet? Well, that's good. Because Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was a guest on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). And while on the show, The Situation discussed his appearance on the upcoming season of 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Although Mike may not be a classically trained dancer, he does have some background in dance (sort of). The Situation revealed to Jay Leno that he used to work in a strip club. "Were you a male stripper?" Leno asked him. "Not necessarily," Mike replied. Not necessarily? It seems to us that you're either a stripper or you're not -- there's not much in-between there. But Sorrentino went on to explain further.

Leno compares Jamie Lee Curtis' daughter to a stripper

by Bob Sassone, posted May 11th 2009 2:43PM
Sometimes it seems that Jay Leno stretches too much for a joke, creating a situation where it goes from "playfully insulting" to over the line. On Friday he had Jamie Lee Curtis on, and she was talking about her daughter graduating from college. Curtis plays along and gets a kick out of Jay's teasing, but then Jay has an edgy joke that seems to come out of nowhere. (Video also here.)

Kim Cattrall: The TV Squad Interview

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 19th 2008 3:01PM
Kim CKim Cattrall is hot. Hot as in busy as well as in looking good. She's also smart, funny, observant and remarkably candid. Recently, I spoke with her for TV Squad about the success of the Sex & the City movie, her new HBO project Sensitive Skin, and a whole lot of other things, including Star Trek, aging, Universal TV in the 1970s and more.

Allison Waldman: When Sex & the City ended, you didn't want to do the movie. Now it's done and it's a huge success.

Kim Cattrall: It's extraordinary. I look back four years ago when this was a runaway idea, I just did not feel ready to do it. We had reached such a high point, I wasn't sure I had anything else to say. I also had incredible personal challenges. My marriage was coming apart, also, my dad was diagnosed with dementia. I really needed a time out.

AW: How did the movie come back around?


KC: Michael Patrick King called and said, 'I'm writing something and I think you're going to love it. ...I think you were right to say no when you did because of whatever reasons you had.' See, I had never been public about my reasons I felt that it was nobody's business.

Christopher Guest dissects Stonehenge for National Geographic - VIDEO

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 7th 2008 4:23PM
spinal tapThe National Geographic Channel is using humor to sell it's ambitious new special Stonehenge Decoded. Christopher Guest has resurrected his Spinal Tap alter ego for National Geographic Channel, lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel, to expound on his theories about how Stonehenge came to be. Naturally, even as he's promoting the special and National Geographic, his tongue is firmly planted in cheek as he disses the findings of the scientists and purports to be an expert on the subject.

Guest as Tufnel is interviewed by straight man -- comic actor -- Jim Piddock, leading to riotous takes by Nigel about dinosaurs, the secret language of potatoes, the pyramids and other weighty affairs. Here's one of the videos (after the jump), so you can see what I mean:

Ticked off Jamie Lee Curtis vents on Oprah - VIDEO

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 9th 2008 9:01AM
Jamie Lee CurtisI'm not a regular Oprah watcher, but on Monday I happened to see actress Jamie Lee Curtis' appearance. I've been really curious about Jamie lately, especially since seeing her on those Activia yogurt commercials. Damn, she's just two years younger than I am and she looks great! What is in that yogurt anyway?

But Jamie Lee was on Oprah to vent. Turns out that the cover shot she did for AARP magazine, which the editors chose to proclaim as a nude shot, was a sham. The picture was not a naked photo shoot. She was wearing a strapless top and was photographed in a swimming pool. The illusion of nudity was created by the way they cropped the picture. Jamie Lee said she was shocked. She held up a copy of the magazine and said to Oprah and the world, "Isn't it fascinating that this constitutes being naked. What the f*ck are we talking about? In my world, this is called strapless. I didn't go around saying I was topless."

Anything But Love coming to DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 3rd 2006 11:15AM

Anything But LoveI have to admit, this is one show I thought I'd never see on DVD, so maybe there's hope for other short-lived shows from the 80s.

Anything But Love, the ABC comedy that ran from 1989 to 1992, will be released on DVD February 6. The first set will be the first two seasons (28 episodes total). Here's the info, including episode titles.

If you can't place the show, it starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Richard Lewis as writers at a top Chicago magazine. They're friends at first but eventually (of course) they become more than that. The show costarred Ann Magnuson as their boss, as well as Holly Fulger, Richard Frank, Louis Giambalvo, and Joseph Maher. It was a solid little show, smart and funny, so I'm really glad it's coming to DVD. The set will include commentaries by Curtis and Lewis.
