Fan Expo 2011 Day 3: Don't Rub Jeannie, Six Million Dollar Pranks and Landau's Lessons

by Aaron Broverman, posted Aug 28th 2011 9:32AM
We've already passed the midpoint of this year's Fan Expo, but don't despair, because Day 3 was chock-full of memorable moments from Lee Majors, Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden of 'I Dream of Jeannie' fame. There was also a once-in-a-lifetime acting class from the indomitable Martin Landau -- who has worked with and trained film legends of all kinds -- as well as being a legendary actor in his own right.

So, what are you waiting for? I can hear you salivating with anticipation from here. Read on, my friend -- Read on!

'The Office' Adds New Characters, Lee Majors to Guest on '$#*! My Dad Says' and More

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jan 18th 2011 8:30AM
Lee MajorsLast week we reported that Steve Carell will be leaving 'The Office' early. Now we hear that execs are looking to add some new characters to the cast later this season. And the search is on for an actress to play Stanley's previously unseen adult daughter.

According to TVLine.com, exec producer Greg Daniels has confirmed that casting is underway for the recurring role, which may be expanded to a regular spot. "We're trying to take Steve's departure as an opportunity to shake things up and add some new characters," said Daniels.

He added that Carell's exit will give the supporting cast a chance to shine. "For Michael not to take up the A story in every episode means that a lot of them are getting the A stories now."

More casting news, including Lee Majors on '$#*! My Dad Says' and 'Lost' alum Michael Emerson on 'Parenthood' after the jump ...

'Human Target' - 'Christopher Chance' Recap (Season Finale)

(S01E12) "Christopher Chance is the guy you go to when no one else can help you." - Christopher Chance to, er, Christopher Chance!

Last night's great season finale was capped off by a cliffhanger ending straight outta 'The Empire Strikes Back' -- a major player went missing, the plot was left unresolved, and a swelling John Williams-esque score filled the final moments. The cliffhanger felt even more poignant since Fox has yet to announce a second season renewal for 'Human Target.'

Hopefully, the network will take a, er, chance and order another full season of the show. 'Human Target' turned out to be one of the best and most enjoyable new series to premiere in the last few months. I've had a blast tagging along with Chance, Winston and Guerrero on their crazy adventures, and I'd love to see the boys regroup and save the day over and over again for another few years.

Susan Sarandon May Star in Big Screen 'Big Valley'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 11th 2010 4:03PM
The Big ValleyI'm never quite sure what to make of big screen versions of TV shows. Sometimes they work ('The Brady Bunch,' 'Mission: Impossible'), but more often they don't (too many to list here), because it's as if a show's plot or theme is necessarily great, it's the actors that were in the show and the time when the show aired. You can't recreate that with a big name star and some "nostalgia" factor.

The latest show to get that big screen treatment is 'The Big Valley,' the western that aired on ABC in the mid-60s. It starred Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Long, Linda Evans, and Lee Majors. Kate Edelman Johnson, daughter of show co-creator Louis, is planning to do a movie based on the show and The Hollywood Reporter reports that Sarandon is in talks to play Victoria Barkley, the role Stanwyck played in the show.

If there is a 'Big Valley' movie and she does star in it, then she has to be credited on screen as MISS Susan Sarandon.

Why isn't the original Bionic Woman on DVD yet?

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 7th 2007 9:24AM

The Bionic WomanSince NBC just launched the remake of the 70s sci-fi drama The Bionic Woman (I still love you Lindsay Wagner), some people are wondering if we'll ever see the original on DVD. TVGuide.com has an interesting story explaining why the original show (and the show it was spun off from, The Six Million Dollar Man) hasn't been released on DVD yet. And, you guessed it, is has to do with licenses and ownership.

Ben 10 live-action movie wraps filming

by Kevin Kelly, posted Sep 18th 2007 2:07PM
Ben 10: Race Against TimeThe Cartoon Network announced today that they've completed work on the first live-action Ben 10 movie, Ben 10: Race Against Time. Directed by Alex Winter (yes, that same Alex Winter of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure fame), the adaptation of the hit kid's animated show stars Graham Philips as Ben, and Lee Majors as his Winnebago-driving Grandpa who accompanies Ben and sister Gwen on their many adventures.

If you're not familiar with Ben 10, then you're probably over the age of 12, don't have kids of your own, and/or aren't a comic-book loving, nerf-toy wielding, anime-watching geek. I probably fall into the latter category, because Ben 10 is one of my favorite animated shows. In fact, should I even be admitting out loud that I dressed up as Ben Tennyson for Halloween last year?

Me & Lee -- a look at the pilot script

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 4th 2007 1:19PM

lee majorsI'm too young to have watched The Six Million Dollar Man, and the only reason I'm even remotely familiar with The Fall Guy and The Big Valley is because my father would sometimes watch those shows (The Big Valley was in syndication when I was younger). So Me & Lee, a new pilot for FOX in which Lee Majors helps an injured man (played by Jamie Kennedy) by sprucing him up with a new bionic body a la the Six Million Dollar Man, did not catch my attention because of Majors' involvement, it caught my attention because Paul Dinello, co-creator and co-star of one of my favorite shows of all time (Strangers with Candy) was attached to direct the pilot.

Lee Majors to perform surgery on Jamie Kennedy

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 22nd 2007 3:17PM

Lee MajorsEvery day in this business, I hear ideas for TV shows and movies that blow my mind. Just when you think you've heard the oddest idea, along comes another one to top it.

Here's the latest. Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) and comic Jamie Kennedy are going to star in a pilot for FOX titled Me & Lee? That's not a question, that's the actual title of the show. The plot? Kennedy plays a guy with severe chronic back pain who goes to the secret lair run by Majors (who will play himself) underneath his Beverly Hills mansion. It houses a lab that Majors built after becoming interested in bionics after his show ended years ago.

Um...wow.

This could be the sign of a "bionics" comeback. As you've probably already heard, NBC and the people behind Battlestar Galactica are making a new Bionic Woman, with Michelle Ryan in the lead role.

paul dinelloPaul Dinello, one of the co-creators of one of the greatest TV shows of all time, Strangers with Candy, and the man who played gay art teacher Geoffry Jellineck on the series, is set to direct the new FOX comedy pilot Me & Lee?

The pilot is called Me & Lee?, just to clarify. I didn't want you readers to think I was asking you whether or not Dinello is directing the pilot.

Arthur Hill dead at 84

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 27th 2006 8:28AM

Arthur HillI'm not sure if a lot of younger people would know who Arthur Hill is, because his most famous show isn't run anymore (that I know of anyway). Hill played attorney Owen Marshall in the ABC series Owen Marshall, Counselor At Law, in the early 70s. The show costarred Lee Majors.

Hill died last Sunday in California from complications of Alzheimer's Diseases.

Besides Owen Marshall, Hill had several roles in well-known movies, including The Andromeda Strain, A Bridge Too Far, The Ugly American, The Amateur, The Champ, Futureworld, Vanished, and Rabbit, Run. He was also the narrator of 1983's Something Wicked This Way Comes. His last role was an episode of Murder, She Wrote in 1990.

The Five: Great shows you'll never, ever, ever see on DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 22nd 2006 12:30PM

Tom BergeronIt seems that everything is being released on DVD these days. Not just shows from the 50s and short-lived shows like The Adventures of Brisco County and Profit and many others. But there are many shows you'll never see on TV, because they're too obscure, don't have enough fan base, wouldn't be worth it financially, and/or just don't have any "buzz" to make it worth releasing by the studio. Now, I've been surprised before. I'm still shocked that Riptide made it to DVD. But I'm pretty confident we won't see the five shows below on DVD. Which is a shame, because they're five of my favorites.

In fact, if any of these shows are released on DVD (whole seasons, not an odd episode thrown on another DVD), I'll run naked through Central Park while eating a chicken salad sandwich and singing the theme song from Fame.

Short-Lived Shows: Raven

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2006 8:19AM
Raven was a show that ran on CBS for one season in 1992-93. It concerned Jonathon Raven (that's not a typo - it's "on" not "an"), an ex-spy and martial arts expert looking for the teen son that vanished after his wife died. With the help of his ex-Special Forces buddy Herman "Ski" Jablonski, he tracks the son to Hawaii. While looking for him, he helps people who are in trouble, often using martial arts.

OK, I know that description might sound a little lame, but let me describe things a little bit more.
