Jane Fonda, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Jane Fonda was apparently a big part of Craig Ferguson's recovery process from drug and alcohol addiction, even if she didn't know it. When he had the star on 'The Late Late Show' (Tue., 12:35AM on CBS), he revealed that her video was the only one available to them when he was in rehab.

"We would all go out, me and the junkies, and we'd drive the big truck," Ferguson revealed. Fonda laughed and said she believed him because he knew the "drive the big truck" reference specifically.

"That's how I remember, because before that I was chasing the white line," he said.

Charlie Sheen Might (or Might Not) Play a Zombie on 'The Walking Dead,' Jane Fonda Wants a TV Show and More

Charlie SheenA familiar face might shuffle across your TV screen next year in a quest for brains: The site Socyberty.com reports that Charlie Sheen is confirmed to appear as a zombie on season 2 'The Walking Dead.'

Wait, what? Isn't he on TV's biggest sitcom? Well, yeah. Just as we suspected, the news is sadly untrue. Unfortunately, E! Online reports that an AMC rep called the story "crazy."

Blast! We were having so much fun thinking about which way Zombie Charlie would kick the proverbial bucket (again): axe to the head? Gunshot? Bludgeoning? Oh, the possibilities ...

In other TV news ...

After a long and storied film (and workout video) career, Jane Fonda wants to venture into television. "I have a sort of a vision of what it could be and that's all that I'll say," Fonda said. "I think the best, edgiest writing is now on cable television. It's pretty exciting." [AP]

Awesome alert: The 'Freaks and Geeks' cast will probably reunite for a Q&A at the 2011 PaleyFest in March. Co-executive producer Judd Apatow said arrangements are coming together for the sure-to-be-epic event. [Variety]

'True Blood's' season 4 recurring cast keeps on growing. 'Hawthrone' actress Christina Moore will play Suzanne McKittrick, a Texas housewife with special powers. In addition to Moore, 'Lost' actor Neil Hopkins will play Claude and Chris Butler will play Emory, a shapeshifter. [Deadline Hollywood]

Jay Leno Asks: Are Jane Fonda and Ted Turner Getting Back Together?Actress Jane Fonda and billionaire Ted Turner were one of the world's most famous married couples in the 1990s. Then, they got divorced. Just recently, though, the pair were seen sharing an onstage kiss at an awards ceremony. Now, Jay Leno asks this question: Are the couple getting back together?

On 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Jane does admit that Turner was the "favorite" of her three husbands, but she quickly shuts down any rumors that they might become a couple again. "That's not going to happen," she says. Aw. Everything could have felt just like the 1990s again. A reunited Turner/Fonda couple have brought all the old trends back. Beanie Babies! The Macarena! Rollerblades! Fanny Packs! Oh well.

'Oprah' Reunites Jane Fonda With Ex-Hubby Ted Turner (VIDEO)

'Oprah' Reunites Jane Fonda With Ex-Hubby Ted TurnerActress Jane Fonda and tycoon Ted Turner were married for a decade, but Fonda divorced the billionaire in 2001. Turner has previously stated that their relationship was in trouble before then.

He felt their marriage was damaged after Fonda came home one day -- and suddenly announced she had become a born-again Christian. This came as a shock to Ted; the pair never totally recovered.

But that's all water under the bridge. Though it's been ten years since the divorce, the former couple still care for one another. 'Oprah' (weekdays, syndicated) reunited the pair, and Jane and Ted discussed their relationship for the first time since the 2001 split.

Ten actors I want to see on TV

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 12:00PM
network tenHave you noticed lately that the new faces cropping up on TV series in starring roles are often actors you've never seen before -- or if you have, it was in a supporting role of a feature or a foreign TV show? Think about it, Lee Pace as the Pie Man on Pushing Daisies, Jonny Lee Miller on Eli Stone, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in New Amsterdam, Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, all of these leads are relatively new faces. That's one way to cast series. Another is for big stars to take to TV, if not for the first time, than for a return.

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.

CBS owes an apology for Big Brother faux pas

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 18th 2008 4:19PM
ChenThis is no laughing matter. John Gilmore, executive director of Autism United, said today that CBS must apologize for an insensitive remark made on the Julie Chen-hosted reality show Big Brother during last week's episode. One of the contestants, a man named Adam, said that if he was the show's big winner, he would use the money to start a hair salon for people with developmental disabilities. Adam went on to say he wanted a beauty shop "so retards can get it together and get their hair done." When Sheila, another contestant, protested, "Don't call them that," Adam declared that, "Disabled kids. I can call them whatever I want. I work with them all day, okay?"

According to CBS's Big Brother web site, Adam is a public relations manager for an unnamed foundation. The 29-year-old is from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, but is now living in Delray Beach, Florida.

On the 9th day of Festivus, TV gave to me

Stephen Colbert... nine Colbert moments

Mr. Stephen Colbert had a great run in 2005, when The Colbert Report debuted and took off like a mighty eagle... with a disturbingly dedicated fanbase. This past year somehow managed to top all that, making Colbert and his show absolute pop culture giants and easily one of the biggest hits of 2006. I've been a fan ever since I first saw the man many years ago on The Daily Show and Strangers With Candy, so I feel like I've seen his career positively explode before my very eyes. Ohh, my boy's all grown up.

Now now, let's move on to my list before I get even more sappy and awkwardly maternal (the fact that Colbert's over twenty years older than me does not help the strangeness). Here are the top nine Colbert Report moments of 2006!

Colbert cooks with Fonda and Steinem - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 17th 2006 6:39PM
Jane Fonda, Stephen Colbert, Gloria SteinemI know this aired last week, but I thought it was one of the finer moments on the now one-year history of The Colbert Report (it first aired one year ago today...):

During a special episode Colbert called "A Salute to the American Lady" (which he was "mandated" to do for various reasons), Stephen interviewed noted femenists Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem, who were starting a radio network called GreenStone Media. The interview was about the role of feminism in today's world. But, instead of talking to them in a normal setting, he decided it would be more appropriate to talk to them during a cooking segment.

So there's Colbert, Fonda and Steinem, talking feminism while wearing aprons and making some silly-looking apple pie. Both women even followed the suggestion on Stephen's apron and kissed the cook (Jane kissed Stephen more than once... that minx!). It was a simple but funny juxtaposition, and the fact that both Fonda and Steinem got the joke made it even better. The video of the segment is after the jump.
