Halle Berry Eyes a Return to TV

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 1st 2011 6:15AM
Halle BerryOscar-winning actress Halle Berry could be coming to a small screen near you. It's been reported that she's attached to star in a drama project currently being shopped around pay cable networks like HBO and Showtime.

According to Deadline.com, DreamWorks TV has sent out a spec for the project -- entitled 'Higher Learning' -- to several pay cable networks, and is hoping for a quick decision. Details are sketchy right now, but the TV drama would see Berry starring as a college professor.

The script was written by 30-year industry veteran Lee Rose, who was queen of TV movies in their heyday during the 1990s. Since then Rose has worked as a director and producer on series such as 'Weeds,' 'Related,' 'Haven' and 'Greek.'

Queen Latifah talks about Oprah Winfrey on 'The View'Queen Latifah was part of the tapings for 'Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular,' a two-part series finale. The first part aired yesterday, the second airs today, final show tomorrow. On today's edition of 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Latifah said of the show was beautiful, emotional and fun, and that she was actually a bit nervous to take part in it.

Latifah appeared with Halle Berry and Katie Holmes to pay tribute to Oprah Winfrey. "I don't usually get nervous at things like that," she said, "but to walk out there with Halle and Katie and deliver our initial, you know, sort of speech, I was like, 'OK, you've got to get down those stairs, don't trip! Do a good job, really show up for her."

Latifah said there was also a bit of melancholy to the proceedings, as Winfrey said goodbye to the show and her fans. She's not sure Winfrey was completely settled it for herself, but said it looked like she had a blast.

Halle Berry Fakes an Orgasm Over Gourmet Popcorn (VIDEO)

Halle Berry Tastes Garrett Popcorn on 'Tonight Show'Jay Leno inadvertently discovered that a particular snack food seems to turn on Halle Berry. During her visit to 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Berry introduced the host to Garrett's gourmet popcorn, specifically the "caramel corn cheese mix." She was shocked he'd never heard of it, as she can "polish off that [tin] in one movie," she said. Leno tried it and appeared unfazed. Berry ate a few pieces and said, "It's, like, orgasmic."

Leno responded, "It's orgasmic?!" And with that information, he began pouring popcorn into her cupped hands until it overflowed all around her. She played along and faked an orgasm. Cut to commercial.

Halle Berry Tells 'GMA' She is 'Scared to Death' of Broadway Debut (VIDEO)

Halle Berry on her Broadway debut on 'Good Morning America'Halle Berry has acted in everything from soap operas to super-hero movies, and won an Oscar in 2002 for 'Monster's Ball.' It seems like there wouldn't be much that could frighten her professionally, but she did mention one thing on 'Good Morning America' (Weekdays, 7AM on ABC) today -- acting on Broadway.

Berry will make her Broadway debut opposite Samuel L. Jackson in a play called 'The Mountaintop' next year. There are only two characters -- Jackson plays Martin Luther King, Jr., and Berry plays his maid. The play takes place on the day King was killed.

It's not the lightest project for your welcome to the big stage, but Berry welcomes the challenge. "It must mean it's what I'm supposed to do next if it scares me to death," she says.

Then again, she might be ready to do something a little more serious after filming 'The Skank Robbers' with Jamie Foxx. That will probably be scarier for us than her.

The fashion industry's open house took place across the world -- from Milan, Moscow and London to New York City, Seattle and Los Angeles. Halle Berry was one of many attendees. "I care about our economy, and a night like this sort of infuses some energy into our fashion industry," Berry said.

Berry, Farrell and Fox join the previously announced Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Mickey Rourke on the growing roster of award presenters.

The Jay Leno Show: Halle Berry

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 18th 2009 1:00AM
Halle BerryI'm starting to get a feel for what these "comedy correspondents" are for. They'll be a recurring rotation of comedians on-hand to submit video shorts and provide comedy bits on the show. Basically, it's NBC coming through at least a bit on this being a "comedy" show instead of just a retooled talk show.

Unlike The Daily Show correspondents, Jay's correspondents are treated like guests rather than as a part of the show. Maybe, as time goes on and we see them over and over again, this will change. Perhaps they could even develop their own unique voice that we'll find ourselves looking forward to.

Tonight, D.L. Hughley went to speak to government representatives in California to talk about the sad state of the state's economy. From there, he wound up putting on a bake sale to save the state. So it was a bit like what would happen on The Daily Show after all.

Jennifer Hudson Vogue CoverWhen ex-Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson appears on the March cover of the fashion magazine, Vogue, she'll be only the third African-American CELEBRITY to do so. And she'll be making Vogue history as the FIRST African-American SINGER to grace the cover. The other two cover ladies were Oprah and Halle Berry.

Hudson was photographed by Annie Leibovitz at the Apollo Theater in New York. But there is already controversy brewing online over the cover image of Hudson with her mouth wide open, and cleavage spilling out.

At Concreteloop.com all of Hudson's Vogue photos were criticized as unflattering. They asked the question, "WTF was Annie Leibovitz smoking that day?"

People's Choice Awards winners

by Brett Love, posted Jan 10th 2007 10:33AM
Two And A Half MenCBS put their regular programming on hold last night so they could show the 33rd Annual People's Choice Awards. Hosted by Queen Latifah, the show gives awards based on public internet voting. As that is the case, these awards track with the Nielsen ratings more than most. Case in point, the award for Television Comedy went to Two And A Half Men. Top rated for a couple years now, but it can't seem to get any press unless Charlie Sheen is divorcing someone or hiring a hooker.

Most of the other television awards followed similar lines. The award for Best Drama went to Grey's Anatomy. Best Actor was Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy). Best Actress went to Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives). Best Competition/Reality show was, of course, American Idol. Best Animated Show was The Simpsons. The only real surprise came in the new categories. Best New Drama was Heroes, which isn't a surprise, but Best New Comedy, The Class? I didn't see that one coming. The television awards were rounded out with Ellen Degeneres winning Best Talk Show Host.

Movies and Music winners after the jump.

Deal Or No Deal women on People's list of most beautiful

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 27th 2006 1:03PM
Deal Or No DealOK, so People is coming out with their annual "100 Most Beautiful" list, and all the usual suspects are on it: Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, and for the guys, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matthew McConaghey. But among the 100 Most Beautiful People In The World is ... the 26 supermodels that hold the briefcases on NBC's Deal Or No Deal.

Now, I don't have the issue in front of me, but did the 26 take up 26 spots in the top 100 (boy, that would really make People's job easier) or did they just include them as "one?" That would seem like an insult to the women, eh? That they're all lumped together and interchangeable.

Wouldn't it have been funny if they picked 25 of the models, and just didn't tell us which one they left out?
