'Minute to Win It' - Beauty Queens Eat Cookies Without Using Their Hands (VIDEO)

'Minute to Win It' - Beauty Queens Eat Cookes Without Using Their HandsYou might not think that Oreo cookies could be sexy. But then, you may not have watched the latest episode of 'Minute to Win It' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC). A group of former Miss USA and Miss Universe winners appeared on the game show, and one of their challenges was to eat an Oreo -- without using their hands.

The cookie was placed on top of the women's eyes ... and then they had to move it down to their mouths. So they winked, twitched, and wiggled in order to win the contest. Cookie-eating has seldom seemed so alluring before. The former Miss Puerto Rico got the cookie in her mouth first -- she attributed her victory to a lack of Botox, which made her face more flexible. Good to know!

Dennis Quaid as Bill ClintonDennis Quaid is looking very presidential in this just-released preview of 'The Special Relationship,' a new HBO movie in which he plays former President Bill Clinton.

Quaid reportedly packed on the pounds by hitting McDonald's every day to play President Bill Clinton in HBO's new flick 'The Special Relationship.'

NY Mag's Vulture blog pointed us in the direction of this brief clip for the TV movie, about the relationship between Clinton and Britain's former Prime Minister Tony Blair (Michael Sheen). The film also stars Hope Davis as Hillary Clinton and Helen McCroy as Cherie Blair.

'The Special Relationship' airs Sat., May 29 at 9PM on HBO.

Is the Clinton/Blair relationship really the Clinton movie people want to see?

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 25th 2009 6:00PM
Bill Clinton & Tony BlairWe all have tremendous respect for you, Frost/Nixon writer Peter Morgan (yes, that is what I call him when we're hanging out drinking espressos and doing the crosswords), but do you really think the Clinton story America is just dying to see dramatized is the relationship between former president Bill and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair? Unless "The Special Relationship," as they're calling it, involves a special blue suit Mr. Blair kept for no explainable reason without cleaning it, I think there's better Clinton dramatics to be had.

Even if you don't go with the most sensational stories, there is a certain historic Presidential campaign. Hell, tell both stories from her perspective, that should be fun. Casting, should HBO greenlight the film, has Dennis Quaid playing Bill, Julianne Moore taking on the current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Michael Sheen (who played Frost in the aforementioned Frost/Nixon) playing Tony Blair. This would be his third film appearance as Blair, which makes you wonder if more people think Blair looks like Sheen than Blair.

A happy 10th birthday to Mr. Squarepants

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 19th 2009 9:03AM

SpongeBob and the gang are celebrating their 10th birthday all yearI didn't realize that the late 90s offered up so many cartoons that are still around today. A week or so ago, I mentioned that The Powerpuff Girls were celebrating a 10th birthday with a Cartoon Network special and complete DVD box set. Now comes news that a certain walking and talking sponge is celebrating a 10-year anniversary, as well.

Nickelodeon's pants-wearing sponge will be celebrating his decade of entertainment in a number of ways. If you go to the new SpongeBob.com you'll have a chance to play SpongeBob games, watch SpongeBob videos, and read the blog of Mr. SquarePants' creators. If you watch any of the networks of the MTV universe (which Nickelodeon is a part of) you'll be able to view a documentary on the character and its popularity. Finally, if you can wait a few months, you will be able to catch some new SpongeBob SquarePants episodes featuring Dennis Quaid (March) and Johnny Depp (April).

Ten actors I want to see on TV

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 12:00PM
network tenHave you noticed lately that the new faces cropping up on TV series in starring roles are often actors you've never seen before -- or if you have, it was in a supporting role of a feature or a foreign TV show? Think about it, Lee Pace as the Pie Man on Pushing Daisies, Jonny Lee Miller on Eli Stone, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in New Amsterdam, Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, all of these leads are relatively new faces. That's one way to cast series. Another is for big stars to take to TV, if not for the first time, than for a return.

In an interesting article at IGN.com, blogger Travis Fickett points out that there used to be a line of demarcation between the worlds of acting: film actors vs. television actors. But nowadays the stars are going back and forth a lot more fluidly.
