Russell Crowe has been everywhere on TV lately to promote the May 14 release of 'Robin Hood,' but his stunt on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) on Thursday was a standout: He taught a member of the audience how to shoot an arrow with a longbow.

Russell Crowe's Kids Get Bored at 'Robin Hood' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Apr 16th 2010 7:26PM
Russell Crowe was on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated) on Friday to discuss his latest film, director Ridley Scott's 'Robin Hood,' which opens May 14.

Early buzz on the film has it that this version of the legend will be more realistic, violent and exciting than previous outings. But none of that mattered for Crowe's two young boys (Charlie, 6 and Tennyson, 3 1/2) who attended a screening of the PG-13 movie with their dad. "This should have been one of those great moments between fathers and sons," Crowe said. "Within five minutes, my oldest boy Charlie goes, 'Ah, dad, can we go now?' And ... Tennyson goes, 'Dad, when do you get a horse?'"

Mount Vesuvius to Explode in TV Miniseries

PompeiiBy my own reckoning, somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 various forms of media (books, television shows, movies) have been done about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in ancient Pompeii, Italy. Whatever the count actually is, add one more to it because Ridley Scott will be producing a miniseries about the famous eruption for Sony Pictures Television and Germany's Tandem Communications.

The story is described by the people involved as a thriller love story set against the backdrop of a historical disaster. In other words, it's a thematic duplicate of the movie 'Titanic.' The miniseries will be based on the book 'Pompeii' by Robert Harris, which was originally intended to be developed into a film directed by Roman Polanski (who suddenly became unavailable due to his arrest).

When a major historical event has been covered in an episode of 'Doctor Who,' you know it's been overdone. Hopefully Ridley Scott and company can put a unique spin on the tale. Has anybody read the book? Do you think it could be made into a good miniseries?

scott porter nomads friday night lightsSome of our favorite 'Friday Night Lights' graduates are starting to find their post-game footing.

Taylor Kitsch is heading to the big screen in 'John Carter of Mars', Minka Kelly is starring in a CBS comedy pilot, and Jason Street himself, Scott Porter, has landed a leading role in 'Nomads', the CW's adventure series pilot.

'Nomads' sounds like a welcome departure from the network's recent teen girl-friendly fare. The show follows a group of broke, young (and probably very sexy) backpackers working secret missions for the CIA abroad.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has been busily ordering pilots and presentations, all boasting a lot of star power behind the scenes.

The A-Team: I love it when a plan comes together (not)

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 17th 2009 9:02AM
The A-Team movie has become the fabled Citizen Kane of our times, which doesn't say a whole hell of a lot for our times.

The movie has been passed around and played with more than a bongo at Matthew McConaughey's house. It's gone from production staff to production staff, studio to studio, and now director to director.

Several outlets have reported that the project now has a new director. The megaphone has been passed from Ridley Scott to Smokin' Aces writer and director Joe Carnahan.
