January Jones Likes Being Mean, Regis Tries a Scottish Accent (Again)January Jones says she's come to enjoy playing mean characters like 'Mad Men's' Betty Draper, and Regis Philbin is inspired by Jones' 'Unknown' co-star Liam Neeson to try out his Scottish accent again on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

"Now that [Betty Draper has] become stronger and more independent and, sort of, mean, I guess, I'm getting more offers to play mean people," Jones said, adding that it's much more fun to play unkind characters. "I don't want to be sweet and nice."

Liam Neeson Got 'Hangover 2' Cameo Role by Text Message (VIDEO)

Liam Neeson Talks 'Hangover 2' on 'Tonight'Last October, it was announced that Liam Neeson would replace Mel Gibson in 'The Hangover 2.' How'd he get the gig? The award-winning actor exchanged a few texts with 'Hangover' star (and his 'A-Team' costar) Bradley Cooper.

Cooper sent him a simple "Do you wanta be in Hangover 2?" text message while Neeson was drinking a glass of wine. "I was like, [he motions taking a sip and then texting] 'Yeah,'" he said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Cooper texted back, "Tomorrow?" Neeson took another sip and replied simply, "Yeah." Ah, modern technology. Neeson also confirmed that he will be "covered in tattoos" in the film.

Introducing the new A-Team

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 26th 2009 8:02PM
The A-TeamThe upcoming A-Team movie has released its first cast photo (a larger version can be seen here), and I'll give credit where credit is due. Not only has Fox cast the movie perfectly, but they've gone out of their way to make the cast look like their 80's television equivalents. Okay, Rampage Jackson isn't wearing gold chains, but that's about it.

They even made Liam Neeson look like George Peppard. How cool is that? And of course that's the classic van in the background. Even if this movie ends up being a mindless action flick, then it's still following in the footsteps of its originator and will likely make $100 million that weekend.

I just wonder if anybody is actually going to be shot and killed in the movie. It never seemed to happen during the television show. More importantly, will any of the original cast members make a cameo?

The A Team
Huh. I didn't even realize they had finished casting the big-screen A Team movie let alone started to film it. But above is the first pic from the set. That's Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Face, Quinton Jackson as B.A. Baracus, and Sharlto Copley as Murdock (here's a bigger version of the picture). The film comes out next June.

A-Team movie has almost come together

by Danny Gallagher, posted Sep 11th 2009 3:02PM
The A-Team MovieI love it when a cast comes together, except this one.

Joe Carnahan's cast for the big screen A-Team remake has three out of the four main team members cast and is awaiting confirmation on the fourth.

So far, Liam Neeson has been confirmed to play Hannibal, Bradley Cooper has been fingered for Faceman, and mixed martial arts and UFC fighter Quentin "Rampage" Jackson will play B.A. The director has approached but not yet confirmed Sharito Coplay to play Murdock, debunking rumors that Jim Carrey, Robert Downey, Jr. or Woody Harrelson would be the team's fourth man.

Who should play Murdock in the A-Team movie?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 9th 2009 3:27PM
A-TeamIf you haven't heard, Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper might be in the big screen A-Team movie. I can certainly picture Cooper in Dirk Benedict's place, and I guess Neeson could make a good Hannibal, though he wouldn't have been one of my top choices. But how about Murdock, the crazy team member played by Dwight Schultz? Who could play him?

Who should play Murdock?

HBO plans Lincoln assassination mini-series

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 18th 2008 1:05PM
logo HBOA week from now, HBO will probably be one of the big stories from the Primetime Emmys thanks to the success of the John Adams mini-series. But it's not sitting on that success, the premium cable net is banking on it. HBO announced today a mini series based on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln called Manhunt. That news would be interesting enough because the series will deal with the 12 days after Lincoln was shot when the assassin, John Wilkes Booth, was on the run. However, the guys that HBO have tapped to work on Manhunt are two of the best in television -- David Simon and Tom Fontana.

HBO knows Simon and Fontana's work really well. Simon was the creator of The Wire and Fontana's brainchild was Oz. This is also not a new collaboration. Fontana turned Simon's book, Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, into the Homicide: Life on the Streets TV series for NBC.

The Kennedy Center Honors filmed for CBS

Jessica Simpson Kennedy Center HonorsThe Kennedy Center Honors were taped this past weekend in Washington DC for a December 26th broadcast on CBS. This year's honorees include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Zubin Mehta, Dolly Parton, Smokey Robinson and Steven Spielberg. The moment making the internet and gossip blog rounds right now features Jessica Simpson flubbing the lines to Dolly's "9 to 5." You won't see that in the broadcast. In fact, what you see in the broadcast is an extremely pared down version of the live awards show.

Family Guy: Prick Up Your Ears

by Brett Love, posted Nov 20th 2006 8:32AM
Family Guy, Stewie and Brian(S05E06) The story for this week's episode was more involved, which is a good thing. A little plot goes a long way. When the plot gets too thin everything rides on the gags, and it is hard to pull off an episode with just gags. While the sex-ed story has been told many times, I liked the Family Guy take on it.

It gave them a good reason to bring out slutty Lois, and slutty Lois is usually pretty funny, like when she was trying to explain the wonders of sex to Meg. Or showing up for role-playing night dressed as Grimace? Good stuff.
