EXCLUSIVE: Rick Springfield Books a Guest Spot on 'Hawaii Five-0'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 9th 2011 6:30PM
Rick Springfield'Hawaii Five-0' (Mondays, 10PM ET on CBS) has had its fair share of big name guest stars -- Dane Cook, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, James Marsters and 'Iron Chef' Masaharu Morimoto have all stopped by.

Next up? The show continues the celebrity guest star streak with none other than '80s rocker-turned-soap star Rick Springfield.

Yep, the man who famously pined after 'Jesse's Girl,' had 'General Hospital' fans swooning as Dr. Noah Drake (and his doppleganger, rockstar Eli Love) and, most recently, played an exaggerated version of himself on 'Californication' is now getting the cop drama treatment in paradise.

AOL TV has the exclusive details on Springfield's 'Five-0' role as fashion photographer Renny, who we'll meet in an episode set to air this spring.

Rick Springfield Talks His New Book, His (Potential) New TV Show and, Yes, the Girl in 'Jessie's Girl'

Confession: My teenage bedroom wall space was devoted to three people: John Taylor (of Duran Duran, natch), John Schneider (c'mon, Bo Duke?!) and one Mr. Rick Springfield. My best friend, Amy, and I saw 'Hard to Hold' at least 10 times, and that was only because neither of us had our driver's license yet and had to rely on the 'rents to drop us off at the theater. It would have been lots, lots more.

So, I was giddy at the prospect of chatting with the pop star/actor/author about his new book 'Late, Late at Night' (Touchstone Books), the autobiography that has sparked a flurry of headlines about his teenage suicide attempt, dealing with depression and his admissions about years of infidelity in his relationship with wife Barbara.

Review: Californication - Mr. Bad Example

"I had a plan, I did, but it just didn't work out the way I thought it would."/"What? You thought he'd (Hank) do a good job of being in charge?" - Karen to Becca

Remember watching Friends and feeling that great sense of heavy letdown when you realized that week's diversion of reality would be a "Joey-heavy episode"?

That describes this week's Californication to a tee, except the great sense of heavy letdown doesn't quite sit on top of your soul with the girth and grim sadism of an evil sumo wrestler.

Review: Californication - The Apartment

Californication
(S0308) "For someone who loves women so much, you sure don't understand them very well." - Jackie to Hank

Hank makes for an interesting character because there is never one single, solitary way of looking at him. Some people see this alcoholic horndog as a success while others look at his cavalier exterior and think of him as an utter failure. He's certainly one of the most complex characters on television for a guy who has one thing on his mind, two depending on how much booze is in the house.

So naturally all of his bad decisions and mistakes will come back to haunt him, and this week, he got hit with them all at once in a bizarre clusterf#$% of sheer craziness. It's as if a tornado of tail just leveled Hank's house and life in the process.

Californication: Verities & Balderdash

Embeth Davidtz and David Duchovny on Californication
(S03E03) - "Don't put Daddy in a corner." - Hank to his daughter, Becca

Something spectacular happened on last Sunday's episode of Californication, something I've been hoping and waiting to see from a big-budget television show ever since I was old enough to realize what life was worth living for, what makes television worth watching.

Jackie showed us her boobies!

That being said, there was much more to the most recent saga of Hank Moody and company worth mentioning, and Lord knows I could spend a whole review on Eva Amurri's "revealing" opening scene of Hank imaging his star pupil at her night job. Hell, if Joel would let me do a list of TV's best racks, I'd put Jackie's on the number one and two spots, left and right respectively. I have my reasons.

The new Human Target looks really good

by Bob Sassone, posted May 19th 2009 7:26PM
The original version of The Human Target in the 90s wasn't that great, but it was enjoyable. It starred Rick Springfield and looked a little more sci-fi-ish than this new version with Mark Valley. It's going to be on Wednesday nights at 9 starting next year. Here's a sneak peek. I'm assuming that this train is only in one episode. Otherwise it looks like they dusted off Supertrain and shipped it to FOX.

Here's the original Human Target - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 12th 2009 1:02PM
Human Target comic bookJason told you yesterday that Fringe cast member Mark Valley is going to star in a new version of The Human Target, about a masterspy-ish person who flies around the world on his superplane, donning disguises to become the people he tries to help out of trouble. I say "new" version because this actually was already a TV show, in 1992, with Rick Springfield in the lead. It was on ABC and lasted only a handful of episodes. Then it was gone, but for good reason.

It wasn't very good.

To be fair, the premise was pretty cool (if impossible), and the show had a great theme song. It just didn't come together that well (though I wish it had lasted longer than it did - I'm a sucker for shows like this). It was created by the same people who did The Flash, but that show was better.

Saturday Morning: 1973 (Part I) - VIDEOS

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 30th 2008 11:01AM

Would you let your kids watch Sigmund today?Seventeen. That is the number of premieres that aired during the 1973-74 Saturday morning schedule. It marked the largest number of premieres since original fare began to be offered during the 1965-66 season. It also marked an official shift in the what the networks decided was rating-getting Saturday morning fare.

Taking an example from ABC's successful Saturday morning schedule during the 1972-73 season, the other networks loaded up their time slots with animated versions of its primetime related fare. There was also a lack of animated rock bands. With The Osmonds, Jackson 5ive and Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan off the schedule only one band (and one solo performer) joined the fray this time around.

The 1973-74 season also marked the return of some old Saturday morning favorites: Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Batman, Superman and Aquaman. After a bit of a vacation these characters returned to the airwaves in new formats. For all, it would be the beginning of a long-running Saturday morning relationship that would last well into the 80s.

General Hospital celebrates 45th anniversary

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 22nd 2008 11:32AM
GH logoHas it really been 45 years since General Hospital started broadcasting? Four decades + five years of medical machinations, legendary love stories, action and intrigue. Yes, yes, it's true, on April 1, ABC's General Hospital will celebrate 45 years on the air. Current executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, will cut the cake and members of the cast will blow out the candles, but we're the ones that probably should be smiling. Memories of the great years gone by are inevitable with any show that's run as long as GH. But there's something special about this ABC soap.
