'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

Josh Charles Talks 'The Good Wife' Premiere, Gets 40th Birthday Love on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 14th 2011 6:15PM
Josh Charles of 'The Good Wife' on 'The Talk'When 'The Good Wife' left off last season, Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles were, after seasons worth of build-up, finally making out in an elevator. Charles said Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) that the new season will pick up just minutes after that scene, and get much steamier from there. He also celebrated his 40th birthday with the 'Talk' crew and audience.

"It does start off right afterwards," said Charles of 'The Good Wife' premiere. "It's just going to keep deepening all the characters." He also promised some surprises in the premiere episode. Like maybe nudity? "Maybe," he said.

Since Charles turns 40 on Thursday, 'The Talk' brought the Baltimore native a few gifts to remind him of home, including 40 cookies from Bergers Bakery and a football signed by some players on the Baltimore Ravens. The audience seemed to want a couple of cookies, too, and Charles gave one enthusiastic fan one of his cookies and a kiss on the cheek. It wasn't in an elevator, but she seemed pretty excited about it anyway.

'The Good Wife' Star Josh Charles Promises the Season 2 Finale 'Will Get People Talking'

The Good Wife Season 2 FinaleFriendships and relationships have come and gone on 'The Good Wife,' but one thing has remained the same over the last two seasons: Will and Alicia's unresolved feelings.

Their sexual tension is felt by millions on a weekly basis -- and it could all come to a head in the Season 2 finale (Tues., May 17, 10PM ET on CBS), series star Josh Charles told AOL TV.

In the episode, Lockhart/Gardner represents a man on trial for murdering a judge. The case is Glenn Childs' (Titus Welliver) final case as State's Attorney, and he's going out with a bang.

But that's not all that goes down -- Charles, who plays attorney Will Gardner (and one half of the star-crossed lovers opposite Julianna Margulies), says there will be some big changes. Warning! Minor spoilers ahead.

'The Good Wife' Season 3 Pick-Up Looks Good, Star Josh Charles 'Excited' for Next Year

by Chris Harnick, posted May 11th 2011 1:30PM
Josh Charles, The Good WifeWill 'The Good Wife' return for a season 3? You bet, according to series star Josh Charles. While he hasn't been given the official word, Charles said the cast will be appearing at CBS's Upfront presentation next week.

"We're going to the Upfronts next week," Charles told AOL TV. "I'm imagining they're not inviting us to tell us we're not picked up, you know?"

"I never understand this whole machine," he said. "I think last year we knew before, but [for] whatever reason we don't know. I guess nothing's a guarantee, but all indications seem like we'll most certainly be back next year."

Josh Charles on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Josh Charles said today on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that he is new to Twitter. In fact, the 'Good Wife' star said he just signed up for an account last night and had yet to send his first tweet.

When Charles said he might try to make his first tweet live on the show, Regis Philbin asked him if he'd brought his "tweet gun," making Charles laugh. "I think I found someone who knows less about it than me," said Charles.

Does Alicia Choose Will or Peter on 'The Good Wife'? (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted May 26th 2010 4:10AM
Does Alicia Choose Will or Peter on 'The Good Wife'?Alicia is no longer the junior litigator on 'The Good Wife' (Tue., 10PM ET on CBS), but her love-life is still in flux. Nothing's happened between her and Will since they kissed -- except admitting that their timing has been off since law school. On the season finale, Will laid it all out.


[Spoiler alert.]

In the middle of Peter's press conference, he called Alicia. "OK, I just need to say it," said Will. "We've been up and down, back and forth, and I look at you, Alicia, and I think--"

"Will, no," said Alicia. "... I have the press -- they're just waiting for a whiff of a new scandal, and I have a husband. So if you want to cut through all that noise, then show me a plan."

Gone Too Soon: Sports Night

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 14th 2009 7:04PM
Sports Night
A lot of times, when a show that we love gets canceled way too early in its run, we like to trot out the mantra: "It was before its time." But looking at a television landscape with The Office, 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation (and that's just one night on one network), I really do think Sports Night may have been too innovative for its own good.

Creator Aaron Sorkin even wanted the sitcom to air without a laugh track, but ABC balked and there is one evident in the first season. It was dropped by the second season, but unfortunately the show was dropped as well after only 45 episodes.

Character relations were front and center, and the humor was much more subtle and dry. In 1998, comedies were still dominating the television landscape, led by traditionally formatted shows like Frasier, Friends, The Drew Carey Show and ABC's TGIF lineup. Maybe the very non-traditional Sports Night should have been an hour long, and acted more like FOX's Ally McBeal.

Aaron Sorkin Doing Another Show About a Show - Will He Succeed This Time?

by Liane Bonin, posted Nov 18th 2009 10:24PM
Any of you who were slavishly devoted to 'Sports Night' -- the late, great dramedy that exposed the comic timing and acting chops of stars like Felicity Huffman and Peter Krause early in their careers -- good news! Series creator Aaron Sorkin (who also produced a little somethin-somethin called 'The West Wing') tells TV Guide he's coming back to TV with a series that promises to tread the same juicy, fast-paced behind-the-scenes turf as 'Sports Night.'

The catch? That's also the same turf he covered on another series, 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,' which, while also late, is not particularly lamented by anybody.

'It's going to be what turns out to be the third in the trilogy of TV shows that take place behind the scenes of a TV show, but this will be a different kind of TV show,' Sorkin told the site. "That's all I can let out of the bag right now."

The Good Wife: Pilot (series premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 22nd 2009 11:02PM
Julianna_Margulies_The_Good_Wife(S01E01) You might think that you're watching a variation on Law & Order when the first few minutes of The Good Wife commences. It's not just that Chris Noth is in the scene, looking every bit like Mike Logan. It's more that the scene is ripped from the headlines. Disgraced politician -- Elliot Spitzer, David Vitter, Jim McGreevey -- caught in a sex scandal. His innocent, good wife, standing beside him.

As Alicia Florrick, the wife of a Chicago prosecutor who was caught sucking the toes of prostitutes and forced to resign, Julianna Margulies masters the shell-shocked, distant gaze. Her eyes, in fact, fixate on a stray thread on his suit. But the fog lifts quickly and away from the podium, reality comes in the form of a smack in the face. She delivers the smack, and from that moment, you're on her side. Maybe it was a cheap trick, but it worked.

Sports Night - 10th Anniversary DVD review - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 10th 2008 3:00PM
Sports Night DVDFans of the short-lived ABC comedy Sports Night were disappointed when the DVD set for the show came out in 2002. We were really happy that there was indeed a complete series set for the show, but there wasn't any extras in the set at all. No commentaries, no features, no interviews, no booklet. Some people even reported that the discs didn't work that well, that they would stop and start or freeze altogether on some DVD players (I have the old set and never had this problem). Fans were happy to have the show, but still wanted more.

Well, now we do. Shout! Factory has released a new 10th Anniversary set for the show, and all of the the extras that were missing in that set are here, and then some.

In Treatment not officially dead yet, may get Leight injection

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 2nd 2008 3:03PM
In Treatment - Gabriel Byrne and Dianne WiestI'm sure I'm not the only one who assumed the HBO nightly series In Treatment, featuring Gabriel Byrne, Blair Underwood, Josh Charles and Dianne Wiest among others, was pretty much going to be a done in one. I really enjoyed the tension they managed to create with essentially two or three people sitting in a room and talking, and while critical acclaim pretty much affirmed that I am brilliant (like I needed their help), the ratings didn't follow.

While official word on the show's fate still hasn't come, what is trickling around is that HBO is this close to signing Law & Order: Criminal Intent executive producer Warren Leight (see me holding my fingers really close together), with the intention of putting him on In Treatment should it get the pick-up, which ups the odds of said happening tremendously. I can't imagine the show costs a tremendous amount to produce, aside from paying the top-notch actors they brought on board. Aside from Byrne and Wiest, we'd likely be looking at a new cast of patients with all new conflicts.

DVD rumors: a 10th anniversary set for Sports Night?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 29th 2008 3:41PM

Sports NightThis news could make Sports Night fans go crazy like ... well, people who go crazy and stuff.

TV Shows On DVD is reporting that a 10th anniversary set for the short-lived ABC comedy is in the works, to be released this fall. As fans know, a complete DVD set for the show was already released a few years ago, but it didn't have any extras on it at all (and I remember that some of the first DVDs had a lot of problems with skipping and freezing, though I've never had a problem with my set). This set is rumored to have extras on it, and we can only hope that includes commentaries by the cast and Aaron Sorkin.

No word yet on who is putting it out or even why this set is getting the anniversary treatment (other than it's a great show and deserves it!). Maybe the success of Felicity Huffman and Brenda Strong on Desperate Housewives helped.

In Treatment: Jake and Amy-Week One

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 31st 2008 11:15PM
In Treatment - Jake and Amy(S01E04) "So was that convincing enough?" Amy, after a long monologue about her 'depression.'

It's like the fourth first episode in a row! It really is amazing how every episode so far has essentially been the first episode of a new series. In fact, when they do the "Next time on..." bit, it's not "Tomorrow on In Treatment." It's "Next Thursday on In Treatment: Jake & Amy. And there has been no real connection between these first few episodes, save the common thread of Paul Weston as therapist. Tomorrow night's episode will show what this series is really going to be about as Paul goes to see his own therapist. In Treatment is one of the most unusual television experiments I've ever seen, but after four episodes I think I'm beginning to really like it.

Six Degrees returns tonight, with changes

six degrees
A love triangle, a hidden pregnancy, Josh Charles, and a quickened plot is what awaits viewers who tune in to Six Degrees when it returns tonight on ABC at 9 pm. The series was pulled from the scheduled way back in November when it wasn't holding on to the Grey's Anatomy audience on Thursday nights. Created by J.J. Abrams, the drama is about six New Yorkers and how their lives intersect. The ensemble cast includes Bridget Moynahan, Campbell Scott, and Erika Christenson.

Only, in my opinion, it was slow. And boring. And apparently ABC thought so too, because it gave the executive producers a few mandates for the next seven episodes.

Krasinski directing movie based on David Foster Wallace book

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 16th 2007 7:45PM

KrasinskiWell, this is interesting. I'm not a big fan of David Foster Wallace (1), but anyone who attempts to film something that he has written has my respect.

John Krasinski, Jim on The Office, is directing the movie version of DFW's (2) Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. Not really sure how the movie will be structured, since the book is a collection of short stories, but it's a daring choice for a first time effort. The movie stars Timothy Hutton (3), Rashida Jones (4), Josh Charles (5), Will Forte (6), and Bobby Cannavale (7).

1. He's a smart, interesting guy, but sometimes you just want to throw his books across the room.
2. I can't remember if you're supposed to call him "Foster Wallace" or just "Wallace."
3. From Kidnapped.
4. Karen on The Office.
5. From Sports Night.
6. From SNL.
7. From Will & Grace.
