Jimmy Kimmel Spoons Ben Affleck in the Handsome Club (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 8th 2010 5:12AM
Jimmy Kimmel, Handsome Club, Ben Affleck, Jennifer GarnerOne of the funniest things we've seen in a while is Jimmy Kimmel's Handsome Club bit on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC).

You might have caught part of it during the Oscars, but seriously, find the full video and watch it; well worth the nine minutes or so. How he managed to round up all those celebrities is beyond us. Then again, he IS Jimmy Kimmel, president of the Handsome Club. But probably not for long.

Late night wars? We smell victory for Kimmel.

Watch the video after the jump.

A 'Laverne and Shirley' Remake for the Big Screen?

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 10th 2010 10:37AM
laverne_and_shirley_bowlingSchlemiel! Schlimazel! Are you ready to see America's most beloved Milwaukee girls on the make on the big screen? According to director Garry Marshall, creator of 'Happy Days,' he has hopes to put the spinoff from that show, the successful 'Laverne & Shirley' to the movies. As with all the other hopes for silver screen adaptations, this one comes with some fanciful casting attached, too.

Garry was on 'Extra' promoting his new romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day' and revealed the 'Laverne & Shirley' dream casting: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. That's right. This pair of Shotz Brewery factory employees -- who live in a basement apartment in 1960 Milwaukee and struggle to find the men of their dreams -- would be played by two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Is that a cynical way of looking at it? Yes, it is.

Jennifer Garner Gets Defiled by a Dolphin (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 10th 2010 3:35AM
Late Show with David Letterman: Jennifer Garner gets friendly with a dolphinWe've heard that it's quite magical swimming with dolphins, and apparently, the dolphins feel that way, too. In fact, the story Jennifer Garner told on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) explains a lot about why dolphins are so friendly with humans.

It seems that Garner was training for a guest spot on 'Fantasy Island,' and one particular dolphin got up close and personal with her. Hmmm ... wonder if there's any dolphins in her new movie, 'Valentine's Day.'

Best TV of the '00s: Dramatic Actress

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 1st 2010 11:02AM
allison_janney_west_wingMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the best dramatic actresses of the decade.

Television has always been good to the ladies. Actresses have flourished in dramatic series, and in the past decade, we've seen some amazing performances. There have been lawyers, cops, a U.S. president, nurses, doctors, judges, mothers, daughters and even a real housewife from New Jersey whose husband was in the waste disposal business.

Many of these women have already been honored with Emmys and Golden Globes... and now they get the recognition of TV Squad.

Here, then, without further vamping, the best dramatic actresses of the past ten years:

Networks go to war over J.J. Abrams new spec script

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 1st 2009 4:27PM
J.J. AbramsIt's great to be J.J. Abrams. His newest spec script about a married spy couple is currently undergoing a bidding war that it looks like NBC is winning. On top of that, he's got a new comedy on Fox and he's behind one of the best revitalizations of a franchise in the history of the medium. The script is co-written by Josh Reims, who worked on shows such as ABC's Brothers & Sisters and Dirty Sexy Money.

As others have noted, this new spec script could play as a sequel to his hit show Alias. That show did end with Sydney and Michael married with two kids being asked to return to service. Sadly, I think Jennifer Garner would consider that a backwards step in her career no matter how much she owes Abrams. Perhaps she could make a cameo?

It's interesting that the television spinoff of Mr. & Mrs. Smith didn't last long and had the very same premise. But then, Abrams wasn't behind that one.

The Jay Leno Show: Jennifer Garner, Rep. Barney Frank

Jay Leno interviews Barney Frank in Ten@Ten
The Jay Leno Show
has only been on for a week, but it's already starting to fall into a familiar pattern, and that's a good thing for late night. Familiarity creates a steady audience by making it more comforting, and helps weed out what doesn't work and focus on what does.

Unfortunately, the thing that makes the late night format work is breaking Jay's show.

Just about the only thing that works with Jay's show is his monologue. The rest make him feel more out of his element than Donnie from The Big Lebowski.

Jennifer Garner returning to TV... as a producer

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 15th 2009 8:31AM
AliasJennifer Garner is returning to TV, but not in any sort of on-camera capacity. Her Vandalia Films shingle has gotten a first-look deal with ABC, the same network that hosted the series that made her a star, Alias. Apparently they want to produce fare that is friendly to females such as Grey's Anatomy.

Admittedly, while she has been getting movie roles, I haven't seen any of them recently (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past wasn't my cup of tea). The Elektra franchise never took off. It's probably a good idea to branch herself out like this. I did enjoy the first two seasons of Alias, but I attribute that more to J.J. Abrams than Jennifer Garner.

How does she find the time to do all this yet still be a mother of two? Thankfully she has Ben Affleck to pick up the slack. Maybe he can even make a cameo in whatever television projects her company creates.

Right now on Cinematical

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 1st 2009 3:28PM
The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • It's super commercial night! There may be some sort of game on in between, but this is the day of sweet new ads. A few have popped up online already: check out the trailers for the Transformers sequel and Star Trek.
  • ...And here are the trailers for Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell and Pushing Daisies' Anna Friel, Year One, Up, and more.
  • "So you're just gonna make SPITE NOISE until the movie ends, huh? Just because I had the ignorance to ask you to stop talking during a movie. And you, the parents, condoning it. Brilliant." --Cinematical's Scott Weinberg did not have a good experience watching The Uninvited.
  • I love Jennifer Garner and think she should be in movies all the time (that is, if she doesn't want to make me really happy by returning to television), so it makes me sad that she's doing movies like Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. It... doesn't look good.
  • So I'm trying to find someone who would be interested in watching my baby for about 12 hours or so, so I can go to an AMC theater and watch all five Best Picture Oscar nominees. Any takers?

Jennifer Garner pitching a show for moms

by Anna Johns, posted May 15th 2007 7:29PM
jennifer garnerNew mom Jennifer Garner is hoping to return to television, this time as an executive producer. She and Lauren Sanchez-Whitesell, former host of So You Think You Can Dance?, are pitching a show by moms and for moms to an unnamed network next week. Sanchez-Whitesell tells People that she will host and Garner will executive produce and make occasional appearances.

She compares it to The View, but for mommies. Topics will include everything from advice on getting kids to eat and sleep and behave, and also talk about the strains put on a marriage when kids come into the picture. (It sounds like ParentDish for television!)

Sanchez-Whitesell has a one-year old son with husband Patrick Whitesell, who just happens to be Ben Affleck's agent. Affleck and Garner had a daughter, Violet, in December of 2005.

The Daily Show: September 19, 2006

Stephen Colbert and Steve CarellA spinach recall is fair reason to do jokes about tossing salads. "Call some friends over, have some drinks, and toss each other's salads!" It's a matter of safety, people.

"Papa Don't Preach": Jon did some nice coverage about the Pope's comments (and apology) regarding Islam. I'm going to have to try "I was just quoting a Byzantine emperor!" excuse some time in the near future. Senior Vatican City and San Marino Correspondent John Oliver elaborated on the situation. I thought the comparison of the popes to all the various James Bonds was fantastic.

No Garner in Dallas

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 5th 2006 6:55PM
jennifer garnerAlias star Jennifer Garner has allegedly turned down the role of Pam Ewing in the upcoming feature film version of the popular 1980s primetime soap opera Dallas. Using the "quote from someone close to her, but not the person herself"  approach of most gossip rags, the story floating around right now is that Garner felt uncomfortable about being in the movie with Jennifer Lopez, who is the former flame of Garner's husband, Ben Affleck, and who will be playing Sue Ellen in the movie. Apparently the two had a bit of a feud before, and Garner didn't want to revisit it. I suppose that makes sense, though I think a better explanation she could have given was that the movie, like pretty much all cinematic remakes of TV shows, probably won't be very good.

Don't forget! Alias finale airs tonight

by Bob Sassone, posted May 22nd 2006 11:40AM
ABC has been playing with the schedule lately, so it's sometimes hard to find out when our favorite shows are going to have their finales. The Grey's Anatomy season finale aired on a Monday, and that Oprah special got switched around because of the President's speech. And now, since Lost is having a two hour finale this Wednesday, Alias has to switch nights for its two hour series finale. (Lost gets first dibs over Alias on the ABC schedule, of course.)

The finale airs tonight at 9, and promises to answer all the important questions: what is the ultimate Rambaldi plan? Who will live and die? Will Sloane turn good again at the last second? What caused the crash of Flight 815?

Oh, wait, that's the other show.

Carl Lumbly: The TV Squad Interview

by Keith McDuffee, posted May 19th 2006 10:25AM
carl lumblySome of you long time readers of TV Squad -- in particular those who are Alias fans -- know that I've had a love-hate relationship with the show. I've been an avid viewer since its first season, and although I will say it's had its ups and downs, there's no denying that the show has retained one simple yet important characteristic: it's fun.

Unfortunately for some, the show comes to an end next week, having completed a solid five season run. Though I feel some may not find it so unfortunate, as the show gets to wrap up the way it should, giving it the proper send off it throughly deserves.

Speaking of fortunate, I was just that for having the opportunity to talk to Carl Lumbly last week. Carl's been playing Marcus Dixon on Alias since day one, starting out as Sydney Bristow's partner in what they both thought was the CIA. He's also supplied the voice of Martian Manhunter from the Justice League cartoon series. We talked about his work on Alias, Justice League, his new 'do and a little bit of golf.
