Nike's 'Rise' Ad: LeBron James Plays Tubbs to Don Johnson's Crockett

by Jane Murphy, posted Oct 28th 2010 1:35PM
"What should I do?" asks basketball superstar LeBron James, in a new Nike ad that reviews the last few months of his turbulent move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat. The 90-second ad, 'Rise', came to light Monday via Twitter, when King James directed his followers to YouTube.

Arguably, the highlight of the ad, which had its TV premiere Tuesday during TNT's broadcast of the Heat vs. Celtics game, is the appearance of Miami's former king. Decked out in his baby blue v-neck and white linen suit, it's none other than Don Johnson.

'Eastbound & Down' Season 2, Episode 5 Recap

['Eastbound & Down' - 'Chapter 11']

In our culture, when we come across a problem child or a hooligan or an ugly person, we generally say, "look at the parents" to see where things began to go wrong.

But what about someone as severely and disturbingly ignorant as Kenny Powers; someone who can't understand that it's possible and often optimal to live a life without glue induced hangovers? Reuniting with his father, Eduardo Sanchez (Don Johnson) may not only be a window into Kenny's soul; it could also be a doorway through which none of us are even remotely prepared to pass through.

Don Johnson Gets Another $28 Million as Judge Adds Interest to 'Nash Bridges' Payout

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 9th 2010 11:30AM
Don JohnsonDon Johnson got another big payday for 'Nash Bridges,' his San Francisco-set police drama that's been off the air since 2001. A judge added $28 million in interest to the amount a jury ordered the 'Bridges' production company to pay the actor in a July decision, according to Reuters.

That can buy a whole lot of yellow convertibles.

Johnson sued Rysher Entertainment LLC back in February of 2009, saying he was owed millions in profits as the co-owner of the copyright to his popular show. A jury agreed, and, in July, awarded the actor $23.2 million. Judge Michael Stern added 10 percent interest for every year since Johnson and Rysher signed the deal in 1998, amounting to $28 million in interest and $51.2 million total.

Jewel, 'Chelsea Lately'Laughter is the best medicine, and what better way to soothe the headaches that tend to come after big Labor Day holiday cookouts than to look back at the funniest television moments of the week. Since we know you're too busy with all the shopping and food-prepping to watch whole television programs, we've gathered up the five best bits from the TV week that was. Now you'll have something to talk about when that awkward quiet moment arrives in the middle of dinner.

On 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' (Sun., 10PM ET on E!), we've got sisters sharing perhaps too much about one another's personal appearance, targeting areas best left undiscussed, while Jewel stopped by 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!) to laugh about stealing another woman's car.

Are Craig Ferguson and Don Johnson Flirting With Each Other? (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 1st 2010 8:50AM
Are Craig Ferguson and Don Johnson Flirting With Each Other?Don Johnson, former star of 'Miami Vice' -- and one of the stars of the upcoming film 'Machete' -- appeared on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). While Don was on the show, he chatted with host Craig Ferguson about where he currently lives. As it happens, Johnson resides in Los Angeles -- which is pretty standard for an actor. But for some reason, Ferguson thought that Don might live in "West Hollywood." A fairly confusing conversation then took place.

Johnson admitted that he had "passed through" West Hollywood, and this was Ferguson's reply: "Didn't we all, in the 80s?" Huh? Say what now? The actor and the host then made vague references to the following things:

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay Leno (VIDEO)

Don Johnson Is Mad at the Emmy Awards - and So Is Jay LenoWell, the 2010 Emmy Awards were held last night. That's all very well and good for the people who won. But what about the losers? What about the stars who never win, or who fail over and over again? On 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), we get to meet two such Emmy losers: Don Johnson and Jay Leno.

While talking to Leno, Johnson recounts his one and only shot at Emmy-related glory. In 1985, he was nominated as Best Actor in a Drama for his work on 'Miami Vice.' And he didn't win. It's been 25 years since then, but Don still seems a little irritated. He calls the whole Emmy experience "painful" and "excruciating," while Jay laughs and claps his hands. "I was pissed!" Johnson says.

Sophia Bush Joins Don Johnson in 'Southern Comfort'

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 14th 2010 9:30AM
'One Tree Hill' has been on the air for seven seasons, which have included a major flash-forward reboot of the show for its fifth season, the ouster of its two biggest stars -- Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton -- after its sixth season and the real-life marriage (and subsequent divorce) of stars Murray and Sophia Bush.

But has the CW teen drama finally hit a wall with news that Bush, its biggest remaining star, is looking to move on to a higher profile show -- and network -- for next season?

Bush, who plays teen queen-turned-fashion mogul Brooke Davis on 'OTH,' has signed on to co-star in the ABC comedy pilot 'Southern Discomfort,' in which she will play the daughter of a Texas couple played by Don Johnson and Mary Steenburgen.

Don Johnson in Talks for Southern Comedy Pilot at ABC

by Kim Potts, posted Mar 26th 2010 9:30AM
It's starting to look a lot like the '80s in TV pilot season land. On the heels of Tom Selleck's role in a CBS cop drama pilot, 'Miami Vice' star Don Johnson is in negotiations to star in 'Southern Discomfort,' a comedy pilot at ABC.

In the series, which sounds like a potentially great fit with ABC's Wednesday night comedy line-up of 'The Middle,' 'Modern Family' and 'Cougar Town,' Johnson would play a hard-nosed, conservative Texan whose adult children move back into the family home. Chaos, of course, ensues.

My So-Called LifeOh, bad boys, what would we do without you? While in real life you're more trouble than you're worth, on screen your sulky swaggering, tough talk and icy eyes almost always belie a tender heart beneath the bravado. And that's where you're best enjoyed -- from a safe distance.

'80s TV hunks for the thirty-something teenybopper

by Debra McDuffee, posted Nov 20th 2008 11:23AM
Jack WagnerAll this month, AOL TV is publishing their list of TV's hottest hunks of all time. That's a lot of hunks, but probably they won't all be memorable to you -- or to me.

Because when were you swooning over TV hunks? When you were a teenager, of course. Unless you are really, really immature. But seriously, I am guessing that beyond the age of 16 or so, you probably didn't plaster any Teen Magazine pin-ups on your bedroom walls.

As a teenager of the '80s, I surely had my favorite TV hunks. Yep, they were plastered on my bedroom walls, too: imagine hunk wallpaper and you've got the idea. So who on TV mingled amongst the movie actors of the Brat Pack?

Phyllis Diller and her crewIn this business we call show, there are those people who never let us forget that they are involved to make money. Luckily, those people often occupy the off camera part of the business and let the performers worry about making art. Meanwhile, the business types sit back and try to think up ways they can make more money off of the performers. One of the most insidious ways is to appeal to the star's ego and convince them to make a recording. What follows are some of the best -- and by "best," I mean "WTF?"

Phyllis Diller
"You're Different"
Most people today recognize he name Phyllis Diller but have no idea why she was famous, however if they watch this clip, they can be sure that it isn't for singing.

The WB to burn off eps of Just Legal in August

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 31st 2006 11:04AM
Just LegalFor the three people who were fans of last fall's WB bomb Just Legal, which was cancelled after three episodes, you can now rest easy; the soon-to-be-defunct network has decided to burn off the remaning five episodes of the show. According to this article on The Futon Critic, the network will show the pilot, then the unaired episodes, every Sunday at 7 PM ET starting August 6.

I guess they're showing the pilot to remind everyone what the show was about. I can give it to you in eight words: Don Johnson. Old lawyer. Young lawyer. Wackiness ensues. There. Now you can free up another summer Sunday and go to the beach.
