Sigourney Presents 'Aliens' Egg to Museum

15 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Sigourney Weaver has presented the alien-producing egg from her 1986 movie Aliens to a museum in Washington, DC. Weaver handed the silver egg to the National Museum Of American History on Wednesday, along with an original script and several still photographs from the movie. She says, "It's a great honor for our movie. I also think that people will get a big kick out of getting that close to an egg without a facehugger jumping out at them." The egg will eventually be displayed with other movie memorabilia, such as the Ruby Red slippers Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in the Wizard Of Oz and Harrison Ford's jacket and hat from the Indiana Jones movies. The 1979 thriller Alien, directed by Ridley Scott, launched Weaver's career. She then starred as heroine Ellen Ripley in three more Alien movies - Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien: Resurrection. She's currently in talks with Scott about reprising the role yet again. »

Cantone takes on Imagine's tale of 2 men

3 September 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Standup comedian and New York stage actor Mario Cantone, who co-stars on the hit HBO comedy Sex and the City, has inked a deal with 20th Century Fox TV-based Imagine TV to star in and co-executive produce a comedy series project targeted for fall 2004. The show is said to center on two characters -- a gay man and a straight Italian guy -- created by Cantone, with both characters potentially played by the actor. The project is still in the early stages of development, and Cantone is expected to pair up with a writer soon. On Sex and the City, Cantone plays Charlotte's (Kristin Davis) friend and confidant. He also was featured on Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show, Roast of Denis Leary, the showcase Premium Blend and toplined his own comedy special for the cable channel. On Broadway, Cantone has appeared in such productions as Love! Valor! Compassion! and Shakespeare's The Tempest. Cantone's intense stand-up routines and live-stage performances include musical parodies of Judy Garland, Jim Morrison, Peggy Lee and Liza Minnelli. »

Brittany Murphy's Musical Uncertainty

19 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Bubbly actress Brittany Murphy has a slight problem with the upcoming launch of her singing career - she's yet to decide on which musical genre she'll perform. The Uptown Girls beauty, ex-girlfriend of Eminem and Ashton Kutcher, plans to show off her vocal talents on her debut album this autumn, but has yet to decide on the CD's style. She says, "I was raised on a lot of jazz and hip-hop and R&B and blues, so I have a lot of artists I favor. I'm sure it'll be a hybrid of all that stuff. Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand and Diana Ross - those are my career idols. Jennifer Lopez, Eminem and Ice Cube have done incredible jobs in juggling both careers. Who knows what my music will end up sounding like, but hopefully people will really like it. I need to get it out of my body and into a microphone." »

Minnelli and Gest Separate

28 July 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Liza Minnelli and David Gest have separated - just 16 months after their lavish, star-studded New York wedding. Word that the celebrity couple had split came four months after they called off plans for a glitzy wedding anniversary party, blaming the looming war with Iraq, and Minnelli's subsequent admission into a rehab clinic. A report on the website Newsday.Com quoted an unidentified source close to the couple as saying Gest, 49, was staying in Hawaii, while Minnelli, 57, daughter of the late Judy Garland, remained in her Manhattan, New York apartment. Minnelli's publicist Warren Cowan says, "I can confirm that they're separated, but that's all I know." It was not clear how long the pair had been apart, but earlier in the day, the couple abruptly canceled a joint interview scheduled for next week on CNN's Larry King Live, says a spokeswoman for the show. In March, Minnelli, who has battled addictions to alcohol and painkillers for years, checked into a rehabilitation center in rural Pennsylvania for what her publicist had described as an eight-week "self-help program". Emerging from a prolonged struggle with substance abuse and various health problems, including a near-fatal bout of viral encephalitis in 2000, the Oscar-winning performer relaunched both her career and her personal life with her marriage to concert promoter Gest in March of last year. It was one of the most talked about weddings of the year, with a celebrity- packed guest list that included Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Anthony Hopkins and Andrew Lloyd Webber. »

HBO Stritch docu to theaters first

9 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

HBO is planning a theatrical release in the fall for documentarian D.A. Pennebaker's Elaine Stritch at Large, a backstage look at the actress' one-woman Broadway show. The docu, from Pennebaker and his partners Chris Hegedus and Nick Doob, will then air on the pay cable network next year. Stritch's show traces her Broadway career as she intersperses anecdotes about Marlon Brando, Noel Coward, Ethel Merman, Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland with such signature tunes as Stephen Sondheim's "Here's to the Ladies Who Lunch" and "I'm Still Here". It opened on Broadway last year, went on to London and bowed Tuesday at Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theatre for 17 performances. The show has received a Tony Award for best special theatrical event as well as a Drama Desk Award. »
