Jennifer Aniston likes being naked on the cover of GQ

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 11th 2008 5:00PM
Jennifer Aniston is nekkid on the cover of GQFirst off, welcome to all of you who were searching for "Jennifer Aniston" and "naked."

The former Friends star/former wife of Brad Pitt/30 Rock guest star is on the cover of the January issue of GQ, which I always forget stands for Gentleman's Quarterly because it's a monthly magazine. It's probably like how we're supposed to forget that KFC stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken. It's just GQ now.

Anyway, she's pretty much naked on the cover of the issue, except for that tie of course (she's also nude inside the issue). The cover has a certain 'deja vu' quality though (at least for me), and after a little digging I found out why.

Wait a second, Katherine Heigl makes HOW much money?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 8th 2008 7:00PM
There are three things I know about Katherine Heigl.

1. She stars in ABC's Grey's Anatomy.

2. She's not afraid to speak up if she thinks the show's writers have screwed up.

3. She'll never let you hear the end of it if you pronounce her name wrong, and she'll hunt you down like a dog.

Now there's a fourth thing I know about Heigl: she's the fifth highest paid actress in Hollywood.

Dear Oprah: Power doesn't equal popularity

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 6th 2008 11:03AM
Oprah Winfrey most powerful womanI guess I'm not surprised to hear that Oprah Winfrey has been named the most powerful woman in entertainment. You can read the full list here, in The Hollywood Reporter's 17th annual "Women in Entertainment: Power 100" special issue.

OK, here's the thing about this. I really do get why Oprah is powerful. She's in charge of her own show (remember years ago when she fought to gain control and fired a bunch of people?); she's launched a bunch of other shows, including Rachel Ray, Dr. Phil, and maybe Dr. Oz coming up; she opened that school for girls in Africa; people read the books she recommends; they buy the stuff she likes; and she even had a hand in getting Obama into the White House.

Forbes picks the 100 most powerful celebrities

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 16th 2008 8:05AM

HeiglLike most red-blooded Americans, I love lists. We do a lot of them here at TV Squad and you'll see them at many sites every single day of the week. But I think that sometimes the lists go too far. I mean, what's the point of listing the top 50 or top 100 of something? Isn't that a little bit too many spots? Instead of getting down to the nitty-gritty (say, a top 10 or top 25), you ended up not only listing the best, worst, most, least (or whatever the list's topic is), you're just listing all of them.

Case in point, this Forbes list of the 100 most powerful celebrities.

Jonny Lee Miller: In the Limelight

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 21st 2008 2:43PM
Jonny Lee MillerWhen I first saw the commercials for ABC's Eli Stone, I didn't recognize Jonny Lee Miller. Then, after watching the first episode and liking him, I decided to find out who he was. Imagine my surprise when I learned that I had seen him, multiple times, in a variety of roles. And he was British! I was duly impressed and intrigued. Jonny Lee Miller was a helluva an actor, a chameleon who could be as convincing as a junkie named Sick Boy in Trainspotting as he was a San Francisco lawyer named Eli.

Law and Order's Linus Roache: In the Limelight

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 18th 2008 10:01AM
Linus Roache LeadThis season, Law and Order was looking for a way to get some new energy and interest in the long-running NBC Emmy-winning series, so on the judicial end of the show, they promoted Sam Waterson's Jack McCoy to DA and cast Linus Roache as Assistant District Attorney Michael Cutter. Roache is one of those familiar faces that you've seen on other shows, maybe a movie or two, but here on Law and Order he's making you sit up and take notice. At least that's how it is for me. After watching the first two new episodes when the show returned recently, I wanted to know more about this guy. For starters, why did he remind me of a young Bobby Kennedy?

Well, it turns out that Linus Roache played Robert Kennedy in the mini-series, RFK. The Kennedy connection was even alluded to in last week's episode; at the end of the show, after McCoy had to defend his decision to prosecute overzealous New York City cops by taking the stand in open court, Roache's character, Cutter, gives him a tie pin that once belonged to RFK. With the last line of the show, Cutter says, "I found it on EBay."

Universal Pictures presents: Wanted

by Jen Creer, posted Feb 3rd 2008 7:45PM
Wow, a bullet curving right past someone's [Angelina Jolie's] head and rustling her hair. I saw that when it was in The Matrix. Wow, Angelina Jolie is a bad ass. I saw that in Tomb Raider and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Ooh, James McAvoy looks unsure of himself. I saw that in The Last King of Scotland. A movie about assassins? I saw that in Grosse Pointe Blank and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Morgan Freeman is wise and sage. I saw that in, uh, everything Morgan Freeman has ever been in.

But I'll give you one good reason I'll see this movie anyway: James McAvoy. That man is on fire.

Letterman goes classic tonight too

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 10th 2007 9:01AM

Late Show logoOK, I'm not sure if this Late Show with David Letterman episode that airs on CBS tonight is the purest definition of the word "classic," but at least it's not from two weeks ago like most repeats are on late night shows nowadays.

Jay Leno has been showing episodes from the 1990s lately, and now Letterman has reached into the vault. Tonight's show is from December 17, 1998 and features Angelina Jolie, Jeff Goldblum, and Third Eye Blind. I'm trying to figure out what was going on in Jolie's life at the time. She wasn't with Brad Pitt of course. Was this the Billy Bob Thornton/blood vials era? Here's the rundown on the show. Dick Clark makes a cameo (with a sketch about his New Year's Eve special), as does Casey Kasem. I wonder who got top billing back then, Jolie or Goldblum?

The Daily Show: June 14, 2007

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 15th 2007 1:55AM
Jon StewartThe always lovable Tony Snow shared some more stuff about the never-ending Alberto Gonzalez business. Apparently, the firings were not based on performance and, not only that, Snow claimed that he never said the firings were based on performance in the first place. You'd think that, by now, these folks would be more careful in claiming what they have or haven't said in the past because The Daily Show has magical montage-making abilities to highlight contradictions. And I think Tony Snow was actually wearing the same tie in those contradicting clips. I have no idea why, but I feel like that's insult to injury... As if the tie should have the memory of his speech from three months ago. Perhaps this is a sign I need sleep.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith -- A look at the pilot script

by Brett Love, posted May 8th 2007 3:03PM
The cast of Mr & Mrs Smith
ABC had garnered a fair amount of press over this one because of the obvious tie-in to the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie movie. The big news is that the creators of the movie are back for the TV show. Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Swingers) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: The Last Stand) have signed on to try and transform their movie to the small screen.

David Arquette felt "beat up" after being on Stern - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 15th 2007 12:05PM
David ArquetteAfter yesterday's Q&A session for In Case of Emergency, I decided to ask David Arquette a question or two about his appearance on Howard Stern's show last week, where he talked a little about what broke up the Jennifer Aniston - Brad Pitt marriage (hint: she has bee-stung lips and a couple of adopted kids) and Aniston's subsequent relationship with Vince Vaughn, most of which made the tabloids.

Did he come out of the Stern show knowing he said things that were going to become news? "You definitely think, 'What did i say that they can twist?' because they do twist it. You kind of feel beat up when you get out of there." He went on to say, "I just don't want anyone to get the wrong impression, because I love all those people."

When I asked him how Stern is able to get information like that out of people, Arquette said, "He just asks crazy questions, and you kind of want to answer them truthfully. You don't want to lie."

Mr. & Mrs. Smith pilot finally gets the go ahead

by Brett Love, posted Jan 2nd 2007 12:01PM
mr and mrs smithSometimes the wheels of TV production turn mighty slowly. In August of '05 Adam posted about Doug Liman signing a deal with NBC. Then, last January there was talk about his first project being a series adaptation of the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

A year later, and the show is finally getting the go ahead for a pilot, but not at NBC. Somehow the show has now ended up at ABC. Liman, who directed the big screen version, will direct the pilot. It will be written by Simon Kinberg, who wrote the movie. Kinberg says of the series, ""It's essentially Married With Children with guns." Casting is under way with nobody officially attached to replace Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at this time.

I'll be curious to get a look at it, just because it's Doug Liman, but my real hope for the show is that it will somehow lead to a DVD set of the completely unrelated CBS show, also called Mr. & Mrs. Smith. You might remember that from the fall of '96, starring Scott Bakula and Maria Bello.

Who will make Barbara's 'Most Fascinating' list?

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 28th 2006 7:02PM
barbara waltersOnce again, ABC news woman Barbara Walters is hosting her list of The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2006. As usual, she's picking public figures from entertainment, politics, sports and business. ABC has released the names of six people on her list, including Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy), Anna Wintour, Andre Agassi, John Ramsey (JonBenet's father), televangelist Joel Osteen, and Terri Irwin. Last year's list included Jamie Foxx, Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and Tom Cruise- who totally wigged out in 2005. The special airs on Tuesday, December 12th at 10 pm.

Whether you like her or not, I think Rachael Ray deserves to be on this year's list. 2006 was definitely her year. To that, I'd add Barack Obama (who should've been on her list in 2004) or Nancy Pelosi. And, probably Angelina Jolie.

Who else should make this list?
