Fran and Judi Compete for Lou Diamond Phillips' Attention on 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 4th 2011 4:15PM
'Happily Divorced'Love can be a competitive, contact sport, especially between friends. So when Fran and Judi spotted a guy they both wanted on Wednesday's 'Happily Divorced' (Wednesdays, 10:30PM on TV Land), they put on the full-court press, taking him away from his friends to talk themselves up.

The man in question was named David, played by Lou Diamond Phillips. Fran and Judi saw him out dancing, and approached him at the same time. Then the negotiations began. David asked Fran what she did for a living, and she said she owned a flower ship. "Yeah, so if you ever want to send me some flowers, she'll give 'em to you half price," said Judi. Fran pointed out they'd be free if David sent them to her.

A newbie's look at Stargate Universe

by Jane Boursaw, posted Oct 4th 2009 9:00AM
Stargate Universe Series PremiereI'll preface this by saying that while I'm familiar with the Stargate franchise and recently watched the 1994 movie starring Kurt Russell and James Spader, I've only seen an episode here and there of the various TV shows. So this is my newbie look at Stargate Universe, which premiered Friday night. (And, uh, there really isn't that much on Friday night, and it happened to be on Charter's video on demand, so I checked it out after the premiere aired.)

I'll say right off the bat that it seems a little cheesy, so I'm wondering how it compares to the previous Stargate incarnations. The characters seem a little cliche:

  • the blowhard politician with health problems (and his caring daughter), which resulted in the episode's most heartbreaking moment
  • the nerdy guy with long hair and a sad past
  • the nerdy kid who ends up being transported to a spaceship and helping the crew with important stuff
  • the tough-guy military people with guns and crew cuts
  • the gorgeous female crew members

Q&A: Lou Diamond Phillips Talks 'Stargate: Universe'

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 1st 2009 11:55PM

He's played a 50s rocker, a lot of cops, a federal agent, Native Americans, a gunslinger, and the list goes on and on. Following a film and television career that has spanned over 20 years, Lou Diamond Phillips has become a familiar face. Now, he stands on the verge of nerd superstardom when he takes the role of Colonel David Telford on 'Stargate: Universe', the latest incarnation of the 'Stargate' franchise.

AOL TV Canada spoke with Phillips about his lengthy career, his foray into the world of sci-fi, and his intergalactic sex scene.

'Stargate: Universe' a Whole New World

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 1st 2009 11:55PM
'Stargate' has long been one of those science-fiction franchises that seems untouchable to the average person. 'Star Wars' has Ewoks and other cute creatures like Yoda, and 'Star Trek' has gimmicky, affable characters like Spock, Data, and Worf to draw people in. 'Stargate' has always floated - in neutral - off the mainstream radar.

Its various incarnations, including 'Stargate: Atlantis' and 'Stargate: SG-1', have sat on the cusp between "serious" sci-fi (like 'Battlestar Galactica') and the more "cheesy" sci-fi (some 'Star Trek', 'Xena: The Warrior Princess', 'Buffy'). Fans of 'Stargate' are die-hard, there's no doubt about it - but it has had its fair share of problems attracting new viewers. (Getting your partner to watch with you doesn't count, because they're secretly dissing the show when your back is turned.)

Canadian Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner, co-creators of 'Stargate's TV version, have completely shattered this unapproachable quality with their latest creation, 'Stargate: Universe.'

Stargate Universe -- An early look

by Mike Moody, posted Sep 29th 2009 2:02PM
syfy stargate universe
When word broke that the Stargate franchise was moving into darker territory with Stargate Universe, fan reaction ranged from cautiously optimistic to downright angry. The anger mostly came from fans who felt jilted by Syfy's sudden cancellation of the veteran show Stargate Atlantis (it didn't help that Syfy announced the new series in a press release shortly after announcing the cancellation of Atlantis). To some, it seemed like the fan favorite (Atlantis) had to die so the edgy new experiment (Universe) could live.

–- a fine, scrappy show packed with great actors – might now be facing an uphill battle with some of its target audience members. Stargate fans unwilling to give the show a chance should know one thing: The franchise's spirit of adventure remains intact in the first three episodes of Universe. It is different and darker than Stargate: SG-1 and Atlantis – even blatantly dreary at times – but it's still Stargate.

Will winning I'm A Celebrity kill Lou Diamond Phillips' career?

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 26th 2009 9:03AM
Lou Diamond Phillips gives up some of his dignity.All is well with the world: Lou Diamond Phillips won I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! He's the only contestant out there that deserves to be called a "celebrity."

Why did Lou Diamond Philips pick a show that anyone could see was going to be a train wreck? Did he have 24 days off and say, "why not?" Or did he look at the list of celebrities and then agree? After watching the season, I still don't know who Torrie Wilson was, and she was the runner up.

Lou Diamond Phillips is a good actor. I loved him in La Bamba. I have CHE on my list of movies to watch. He may be a little aged now, but he still gets parts and plays them well. If he did the show for his charity (I love him for supporting Art has Heart), he probably agreed because he knew he had the most celebrity and probably was the most sane person out there.

Lou Diamond Phillips Wins 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here'

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jun 25th 2009 10:45AM
After 24 days of living in the jungle, Lou Diamond Phillips was crowned the winner on the finale of NBC's 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.'

The 47-year-old actor beat out former pro-wrestler Torrie Wilson and ex-NBA player John Salley, and won money for his chosen charity, Art Has Heart, which awards scholarships to low-income students.

All the previous celebrity contestants returned for the finale, except for comedy duo Frangela. Notorious married couple Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag of 'The Hills' did show up, and the latter said she was recovered from the hospitalization that led to her exit from the show. "I'm a lot better," she told host Damien Fahey in an interview. "The doctor said I'll be OK if I stay out of the jungle."

And the winner of I'm a Celebrity is...

I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here
And the King or Queen of the jungle is .... don't worry, I won't spoil the answer on the first page of the post! You'll have to click through to know more and comment on the results.

I've started watching I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! from mid-week 2 and was sucked in immediately as I usually am with most reality TV series that revolve around surviving in new and unfamiliar surroundings. I must say I was quite impressed with Lou Diamond Phillips from the start. I loved his leadership qualities and his helpfulness towards his "junglemates." He is one of the main reasons why I watched the remaining episodes and even caught up with the week 1 Speidi drama! Was I glad that they ended up leaving for good after all the drama and quitting/coming back!

5 Questions With: Daniel Baldwin

by Katy Kroll, posted Jun 12th 2009 8:00PM
As the older brother of Stephen Baldwin, Daniel had his work cut out for him when he joined 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here' late in the game as a replacement after Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt first split. After just one week on the show, though, Daniel got the boot.

While in the Costa Rican jungle, Daniel ate cow tongue, got in Janice Dickinson's face and cracked jokes with his bro, generating laughs and winning over fans. But it wasn't enough to keep him on the show.

Daniel spoke to AOL TV via conference call about what he expected from jungle life, what the real deal is with Janice and whether Spencer might actually be coming back one more time. -- Katy Kroll

A&E cancels The Beast

patrick swayze the beast
Though it probably comes as no big surprise, sources are saying that the Patrick Swayze drama about a rogue FBI agent, The Beast, won't be returning for a second season. While A&E has told Variety that no official decision has been made, word is that episode 13, which aired at the end of April, will be the series' last.

I've been watching I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here!, which is a terrible revelation to make about myself, but in the three hours of my life that show has taken from me, I've come to a few conclusions: 1. My life needs more meaning, and 2. Lou Diamond Phillips is kind of a bad-ass.

I bring this up because apparently, there had been talks of The Beast continuing with someone other than Patrick Swayze in the lead in case Swayze's poor health prevented him from continuing on the show. Phillips recently guest-starred on the series, and I would love to see him on television (in a situation in which he wasn't getting eaten by rats).

I don't think I can take four nights a week of pseudo-celebs

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Jun 2nd 2009 10:02AM
Stephen Baldwin, Sanjaya Malakar, and a celebrity Okay. Out of desperation to escape from rerunland, I watched I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! What I didn't realize is the time commitment expected if I dare get involved. Two hours for the premiere tonight. I can deal with that. But then, as they aired the show, they mentioned it will be on four nights a week -- Monday through Thursday evenings. Yikes! Thankfully, it's only an hour for the remaining nights and it's less than a four-week season.

However, it would be nice if I had any sort of clue as to who these pseudo-celebs are. I know who Lou Diamond Phillips and Stephen Baldwin are, of course. Stephen is the lesser Baldwin doomed to be on shows which remind him he's a celebrity. Because I'm an American Idol watcher, I know Sanjaya. But who are the rest of these people, and why do they think they're all that?

Psych: Psy vs. Psy (series re-premiere)

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 6th 2008 11:09AM

The cast of Psych...now on NBCFor those of you interested in reading a review about this episode of Psych you may want to look a the one that we did when the show originally premiered on USA. What this post is really for is to welcome new viewers to the show and give them a forum to discuss the series.

The thing about Psych, especially this second season, is that underneath the fluff mysteries and the pop cultural references (which there are many this episode) there is a story of friendship and family that flows throughout. Plus, it's funny. James Roday and Dule Hill really shine as Shawn Spencer and Burton "Gus" Guster and they have a very good supporting cast that guides them along the way.

I'm very glad that they used this episode to premiere Psych on the schedule rather as it had a very good and funny guest appearance by Lou Diamond Phillips. Should they ever air the second season premiere on NBC I give you fair warning...despite being directed by John Landis it is just not a very good episode. That being said, I'd like to know if you'll keep tuning in to Psych. Was it as funny as you thought it would be, or do you think it's a bad show with a good theme song? Your opinions are appreciated.

(S02E03) Lassiter: What color is that suit?

Agent Ewing: Black.

Lassiter: Really? Really? It seems blacker than black.

Ewing: It's Washington Black.

Man o' man o' man, did Shawn have to work his arse off tonight! For the second week in a row Mr. Spencer really had to put his skills to the test to show both the Santa Barbara police department and the Federal government what he could do. And, if that wasn't hard enough, he had to compete with another 'psychic' hired by the Treasury Department. In the end he got the culprit, of course, but it was fun to watch him squirm and try to keep up throughout the episode.
