LAUREN GRAHAM, soon to be seen co-starring with GREG KINNEAR in the Universal drama FLASH OF GENIUS, is probably best known for her long-running role on the hit TV series THE GILMORE GIRLS.
One might think that her television roots would color her personal entertainment choices but GRAHAM tells us that she loves watching movies as much as TV…in fact, there are two movies she finds absolutely irresistable. Listen in as she spills the beans about her GODFATHER obsession(nobody better tell GRAHAM about that newly restored blu-ray GODFATHER dvd…she might never leave the house!):
GREEN was understandably vague about his character on the
show, but he did add that he had an ulterior motive for taking part in the series. The lifetime comic books and pop culture geek wants
another action figure with his likeness to decorate his domicile!
Whether GREEN gets his own HEROS action figure is up in the air but the actor could not hold in his enthusiasm during hischat with Hollywood Outbreak. (CLICK ON THE BAR BELOW)
It was a mere 58 years ago that America’s favorite comedy team of DEAN MARTIN and JERRY LEWIS took over the hosting chores of TV’s Colgate Comedy Hour and captivated the whole country.
Six years later, America’s favorite comedy team were working as solos. And that, as they say, is show biz….

CAMERON’S claim to fame, of course, is his history with the hit TV sitcom, GROWING PAINS, in which he managed to charm not only all of America but also his future wife, CHELSEA NOBLE. That’s probably why CAMERON has such fond memories of his years on the show. We spoke with him a couple of days ago about that time in his life…listen in below:
Two years before they premiered their socially relevant and very funny SMOTHERS BROTHERS COMEDY HOUR and exactly 43 years today, THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS premiered their their hugely NOT FUNNY sitcom, THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS SHOW.
As I remember it, TOM is dead and comes back to Earth to pester brother DICK, who is a publishing exec. The show is unbearably bad and shows none of the promise the guys would exhibit a couple of years later…..and, that’s why we share:
If you’ve been watching the new season of HOUSE you know there’s trouble in paradise. The friendship between House and Wilson – some would call it a “bro-mance” – is on the rocks… maybe even dead. Which brings up some serious issues for House… after all, isn’t what he’s had with Wilson really the only real relationship he’s got? HOLLYWOOD OUTBREAK spoke to Hugh Laurie about what he thinks… (CLICK ON THE BAR BELOW)

BEST OF CYBILL - COLLECTOR’S EDITION VOL.1 (First Look Home Entertainment NR $24.98) Cybill aired on CBS from 1995 to 1998. Cybill was a sexy, sophisticated series, comically dealing with single parenthood, divorce, sex and dating over forty, from a realistic and fresh perspective. Cybill Shepherd stars as Cybill Sheridan, a woman who had it all: two spiteful daughters, two clingy ex-husbands, an outrageous best friend, an unstable future and a house on an eroding LA hillside. But with humor and determination, Cybill braved each new challenge that came her way, while having the time of her life discovering that life after forty was anything but downhill.
THE LOVE GURU (Paramount Pictures PG-13 $34.98) A hilarious comedy starring Mike Myers as guru Pitka in his first original character since the blockbuster hit Austin Powers. Myers plays an American raised in India by gurus (Tugginmypudha & Satchabigknoba) and returns to the U.S. in order to break into the self-help business. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle the romantic troubles and subsequent professional skid of a star hockey player (Romany Malco), whose wife left him for a rival athlete Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake). Mini Me is back from Austin Powers and plays the hockey coach for more classic comedic moments that will have audiences laughing from opening to closing credits.
SPEED RACER (Warner Brothers Home Entertainment PG $28.98) An over-the-top, sensory overload experience determined to replicate its frantic, television-anime origins, Speed Racer is wild enough to induce a headache or wow a viewer with one dazzling effect after another. Adapted for the big screen as a live-action feature, Speed Racer is written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski, the sibling team behind the intensely satisfying The Matrix and its busier, less interesting sequels. Where the rich mythmaking of The Matrix was entirely accessible, however, Speed Racer’s overwhelming and gratuitously complicated story exposition is an enormous challenge to follow, let alone embrace. After a while, one simply surrenders to the unbroken din of dialogue concerning corporate chicanery, corruption in the sport of racing, and a value conflict between racing as a family business versus multinational cash cow. At the same time, the film’s hyper-real equivalent of the old Speed Racer cartoon’s great whoosh of color, motion, and edgy production design–such as inventive uses of scene-changing wipes, bold framing, shifting perspectives–are more overbearing than fun.
MADE OF HONOR (Columbia Pictures PG-13 $28.96) For Tom (Patrick Dempsey), life is good: he’s sexy, successful, has great luck with the ladies, and knows he can always rely on Hannah (Michelle Monaghan), his delightful best friend and the one constant in his life. It’s the perfect setup until Hannah goes overseas to Scotland on a six-week business trip… and Tom is stunned to realize how empty his life is without her. He resolves that when she gets back, he’ll ask Hannah to marry him – but is floored when he learns that she has become engaged to a handsome and wealthy Scotsman and plans to move overseas. When Hannah asks Tom to be her “maid” of honor, he reluctantly agrees to fill the role… but only so he can attempt to woo Hannah and stop the wedding before it’s too late.
