Scott Caan Injured on Set of 'Hawaii Five-0'

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 18th 2010 1:29PM
Scott CaanDanno will still be booking 'em -- just maybe with a slight limp. 'Hawaii Five-0' star Scott Caan injured his knee while filming a stunt for the show. But while this type of injury might typically sideline a sports star for months, it won't get in the way of the show's production.

According to the New York Post, Caan suffered "what is believed to be a torn ACL" last week. The new CBS series rearranged the shooting schedule so the 33-year-old actor could undergo surgery for his injury.

According to THR, Caan could be back to set as soon as this week, and his torn ACL will be written into the show.

"Yes, his injury will be noted in the story line," said a CBS spokesperson.

Anna Paquin Talks 'True Blood' Porno and On-Set Nudity on 'Lopez Tonight' (VIDEO)

'Lopez Tonight': Anna Paquin Talks 'True Blood' NudityGeorge Lopez had a special gift for Anna Paquin when she visited 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS): a porno version of 'True Blood.' Paquin was aware of it, saying, "Apparently it's really hardcore -- it's not like some skinemax, fuzzy lighting, you know."

Lopez replied, "'True Blood' is skinemax ... There's a lot of nudity." The actress admitted, "We all get naked a lot on the show, so it's sort of ceased to be something that's, you know, shocking."

To that end, she described in helpful detail what actors and actresses wear on their bits during nude scenes. For the guys, "It's a little flesh-colored sack that gets tied around the various bits and pieces and then gets tied with what I have to say usually is a bow on top."

Is there a female equivalent? Ah, yes, the "snatch patch." And it sounds even more uncomfortable.

'Louie' Moment - Louie Gets Way Too High (VIDEO)

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 11th 2010 6:35AM
Louie gets way too high on 'Louie', Tuesdays at 11PM ET on FXLouis C.K. prides himself on portraying single fatherhood as a noble and manly task, which is different than the put-upon, clueless single dads you usually see on television. He cares about raising his girls right, and it shows in how he interacts with them -- well, at least how he interacts with the fictional kids on 'Louie' (Tuesdays at 11PM ET on FX). As he says during his one of his stand-up segments, "Being with your kids is torture, but you do it because you love them. If I didn't love them, I'd be out playing poker with my friends and come back home and say, 'oh, they're dead.'"

So it's understandable that, when he leaves the kids with his ex-wife for a week, he goes into a ice-cream-and-pizza-eating downward spiral. That spiral crashed and burned when he confronted an obnoxious neighbor about his wayward pot smoke, and ended up getting high with him on his futon. But Louie didn't realize that what was coming from that bong was a whole lot stronger than the stuff he used to smoke in the olden days. And he paid for it big time.

Current TV wants you to Twitter and Digg on election night

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 3rd 2008 1:57PM

Tired of the election night talking heads? Current TV may be the medicine you need.My friends, if you thought the coverage that's been going on since the day after the 2006 Congressional election has been overwhelming, you ain't seen nothing yet. Come sunrise on November 4th the television airwaves will be inundated with election coverage, comment, pontification, and general BS. Red states will become blue, blue states will become red, graphs will be drawn on easel boards with black marker and someone will predict the winner of the entire Presidential election at 7:00:01 p.m.

So, if you are wholly disinterested in the old way that the elections are covered you may want to tune into Current TV, or its website if you don't have the channel on your digital box, for an alternative to get the results you need. In this case, it's you, the couch potato that you are, who will be providing the coverage. It's called "Current Diggs the Election" and the way it works will be unique.

Make your own Dharma labels

by Brett Love, posted Feb 8th 2007 12:01PM
Insanely Great Tees Dharma LabelsOn the off chance you find yourself sitting around with nothing to do while you wait for the next installment of Lost, the fine folks over at Insanely Great Tees have a little project for you. Armed with a printer, some paper, the IGT pdf, and a little patience, you too can make your very own Dharma Initiative products. They even have a Hanso logo and Nutrition Facts. Although, as someone in the Digg comments points out, the UPC code should really involve "the numbers."

It's a little silly, and some of your guests may look at you a little funny, but for the TV nutter that has everything, a sixer of Dharma barley pops makes a perfect gift. Of course, if that's just a little too far out there for you, they also have what are purported to be insanely great shirts.

Jack Bauer's history of kills

by Brett Love, posted Jan 14th 2007 7:29PM
Keifer SutherlandFox is set to kick off the new season of 24 with a two hour premiere tonight. To get you in the mood, have a look at this list of all the people Jack has killed in his first five days. If you're playing along at home, Jack's kill count stands at 136 going into day 6. Not a bad 120 hours worth of work.

This isn't just any list though. Along with who Jack killed, each entry has a video or picture of the kill as well as the method or weapon. It's well done, and the kind of crazy fanaticism that makes television and the internet a great match. Imagine how hard it was back in the day for Green Hornet fans to track the kills of Britt Reed and Kato.

Did Colbert hack Wikipedia? - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 1st 2006 10:38AM
Stephen Colbert talks about Last night, Stephen Colbert devoted his popular Colbert Report segment "The Wørd" to everyone's favorite site for questionable research, Wikipedia. The word for the day was "Wikiality", citing that, due to the site's format, any assertion can become fact if enough of the site's users agreed with it.

To prove his point, he encouraged viewers to edit entries about elephants with the absurd statement that the population of elephants in the world has tripled in the last six months. Indeed, such an edit -- as well as one Stephen said he'd make about him saying Oregon was "Idaho's Portugal" -- were found under an account named "Stephencolbert" around the time the show was taped. As a result, the Wikipedia admins have protected a bunch of elephant-related pages and blocked the "Stephencolbert" account until they can verify that it was actually Stephen (or his producers) making those edits (I guess if it's him, it's funny. If it's not, it's vandalism).

For those who are curious about the segment, the funny video is on YouTube. You can see it after the jump.

9/11 news coverage unfolds on web

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 3rd 2006 3:48PM
It's been four and a half years since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. I don't know about you, but I still get a little emotional when I think too hard about how that morning unfolded. But, if you're interested in looking back at it from a journalistic point of view, here is a good place to do it.

The non-profit television library called The Television Archive has amassed Canadian and American media coverage of that morning over a 15-minute time period from when the first plane hit, through the second plane hitting the towers, and to the first reports of a third plane hitting the Pentagon. You can see how the news outlets responded, who got it right, who got it first, and who, initially, got it totally wrong. For example, Charlie Gibson of Good Morning America, remained totally calm as he reported what he was seeing. While Bryant Gumbel, who was at The Early Show on CBS at the time, saw phantom planes after the first two crashed into the towers, and he got all panicky on air. The entire video montage is about 30 minutes, but you may have to wait a few days to watch it, because now the website is timing out, probably from so much traffic.
