Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks on 'Stand Up To Cancer'Actor Ken Jeong only gets naked for the deep films, when it's "integral" to the plot. Yeah, right. Like in 'The Hangover.' And he also strips down for his dermatologist, he explained on 'Stand Up To Cancer' (Fri., 8PM ET on BIO). Live on the fund-raising telethon, his doctor looked him over for signs of skin cancer.

Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks continued the discussion of skin-cancer screenings. The stars of 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno' didn't shy away from specifics. Rogen admitted that guys can even "get skin cancer on your stones."

"In fact, you can get skin cancer anywhere you have skin," added Banks. "That's why skin self-examination is critical." Rogen opined: "Your man berries will thank you for it."

Also in the clip: Will Smith, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe.

Next week, Homer Simpson will undergo a colonoscopy

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 29th 2008 2:00PM
Homer SimpsonThe Simpsons is about to go some place it has never gone before: Homer Simpson's colon.

According to The New York Post, Homer is going to undergo a colonoscopy this season. Actually, it's not going to be part of the long-running FOX show, it's going to be part of the multi-network cancer benefit on September 5 titled Stand Up To Cancer. The Post even quotes a line from the segment that already has me laughing, from Marge: "There's his wedding band! He told me he was having it polished!" Which begs the question, do Marge and Homer even wear their rings?

Stand Up To Cancer is an ambitious telethon that will air on all four networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX). The three network news anchors (Katie Couric, Charles Gibson, and Brian Williams) even went on the morning shows several weeks back to promote this rare display of unity between the networks.

Hopefully Homer will be clean as a whistle, despite 40 plus years of eating fried foods and donuts.

Christina Applegate is cancer-free

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 19th 2008 2:02PM
Samantha Who standingWhen it was revealed to the media recently that actress Christina Applegate had cancer, it was a shock. She is only 36 years old, but as anyone whose life has been touched by cancer, this disease touches the young and the old and everyone in between.

Today, the star of ABC's Samantha Who? was on Good Morning, America to explain what's happening with her, and Christina declared that she is now cancer-free. "Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread. They got everything out, so I'm definitely not going to die from breast cancer."

In an exclusive, candid interview, she revealed that three weeks ago she had a double mastectomy to remove all traces of breast cancer. She will have reconstructive surgery over the next eight months to replace her breasts.

I really admire Christina Applegate. I've liked her a lot on Samantha Who?, but to do what she did today makes me like her even more. She didn't have to face the media and talk about her cancer. It takes courage to share your story.

And having a positive diagnosis, to be able to say you're cancer-free, doesn't make it any easier to talk about the fear you face when you were told that you have cancer and must undergo a difficult surgery or chemotherapy or radiation.

Christina Applegate suffering from breast cancer

christina applegateChristina Applegate, star of ABC's Samantha Who?, is battling breast cancer. According to a statement released by her rep, the cancer was detected early and is not life-threatening. "Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery," Ame Van Iden said.

The news comes just weeks after Applegate earned an Emmy nomination for her work as an amnesiac trying to undo her past misdeeds on Samantha Who?. In addition to continuing to work on her series, Applegate is also scheduled to appear on the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on September 5th. The telethon, which will be simultaneously aired on CBS, NBC and ABC, will also feature Meryl Streep, Sally Field and Jennifer Aniston, among others.

Since the cancer was detected early through a doctor-ordered MRI and Applegate is continuing her work schedule, hopefully the cancer will be easily beat. Here's to a full and speedy recovery.
