As more gay athletes *out* themselves, inspiring lots of conversation on professional athletes who happen to be gay, it shouldn't be a big surprise that there's maybe more interest than ever before in film and TV projects highlighting the contributions of gay athletes to professional sports. Jamie Lee Curtis and Juma Entertainment are hoping all the attention will help push forward a film she's apparently been trying to get made for years, on Major League Baseball player, Glenn Burke (photo above), based his autobiography Out At Home: The Glenn Burke Story. Who's Glenn Burke? Glenn Burke was the first openly gay Major League Baseball player, which he revealed in 1982 in an Inside »

Exclusive: Ross Katz, who produced The Laramie Project and the superb HBO pic Taking Chance, has signed on to write Out At Home: The Glenn Burke Story. He joins Juma Entertainment’s Jamie Lee Curtis and Robert Horowitz as producers of the film that tells the story of Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland A’s player Burke, who was honest with his teammates and management that he was gay at a time in the 1970s when such a revelation was unheard of. It’s still perilous today, though the Brooklyn Nets’ Jason Collins just became the first openly gay player to play on a major pro sports roster, and 2013 SEC co-defensive player of the year Michael Sam is preparing to enter the NFL draft as football’s first openly gay player. I have been surprised by the level of discussion on Espn, where some ex-jocks expect Sam’s draft stock »

While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind. »
Jamie Lee Curtis made a call to 911 and her fast action is being credited to helping save a friend's life earlier this week in California. The 'Halloween' star called emergency services after finding a friend in distress in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, on Tuesday. A representative for the actress told the New York Daily News newspaper: ''Jamie and another woman came to the aid of a young friend who was having a violent reaction to a mixture of medication and alcohol. ''Jamie was going to drive her to the hospital herself but realised she needed immediate medical attention and therefore called 911. ''I'm happy to report [the friend] was released hours later and is doing much better.'' Los Angeles Fire Department said paramedics responded to a distress call at just after 9pm on Tuesday. Jamie's good deed comes six months after she herself was rescued from a car crash in »
We've seen the spectacular short films All's Fair and Valibation from A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas director Todd Strauss-Schulson, but we've been waiting on his next feature film for a little while now. Finally, Variety has word that his horror comedy The Final Girls is coming together at Sony Pictures after New Line took too long to get it off the ground. We're excited because the story begins by following a girl grieving the loss of her mother, a well-known scream queen of the 1980's, not unlike a young Jamie Lee Curtis. But suddenly, the girl and her friends are sucked into the world of her mother's iconic horror film. Inside the world of the film, the girl is reunited with her mother where they must both face the crazed serial killer in order to escape. In addition, Malin Akerman (who actually starred in the original Harold & Kumar Go to »

"Jamie and another woman came to the aid of a young friend who was having a violent reaction to a mixture of medication and alcohol," a rep for Curtis, 55, tells Us Weekly in a statement. "Jamie was going to drive her to the hospital herself but realized she [...] »
Jamie Lee Curtis' most recent roles have been on Fox's New Girl (playing Zooey Deschanel's mom) and CBS' NCIS (playing Mark Harmon's love interest), so it makes sense that the Freaky Friday star would pursue a larger role on the small screen. Curtis will co-star in an as-yet-untitled high-concept medical drama from David Marshall Grant on CBS about quadruplets (three men and a woman) who lived The Truman Show by growing up on a reality show. Curtis' role sounds not unlike Anjelica Huston's in The Royal Tenenbaums (a character I've always wished had her own movie) -- Caroline is the family matriarch and a high-powered doctor who heads a hospital. Curtis has proved herself a great comedic actress throughout her career, so it should be a treat to see how her easygoing charisma translates into more serious material. [h/t Deadline]

TV news and notes:
- The premiere of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" pulled in strong ratings Monday night (Feb. 24). The show drew 3.4 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 -- slight improvements on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" debut in 2009 and substantially above the show's average for this season. As for Fallon, his first "Tonight Show" without an Olympics lead-in did well too with 6.3 million viewers and a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo; "Tonight's" season averages are 4 million viewers and a 1.0 in adults 18-49.
- "Bates Motel" is the latest TV series to get its own after hours show. A&E announced that that the same company that produced "Talking Bad" and "Talking Dead" is helping them create "Bates Motel: After Hours." The first episode of "After Hours" will air as a special following the "Bates Motel" Season 2 premiere on March 3, but it could turn into a full-blown half-hour companion series. »
We were very intrigued to hear that Jamie Lee Curtis will star in David Marshall Grant's upcoming CBS medical drama as Caroline, a doctor mother to adult quadruplets. We were even more intrigued by the fact that Caroline raised said quadruplets on a reality show. Maybe it's because Curtis's last TV role was Zooey Deschanel's mom on New Girl, maybe it's because reality television is often itself an absurd parody of human behavior, maybe it's because we still want a forum to air our grievances against Jon and Kate Gosselin, but this show feels like it should be a comedy. Not that we won't watch it either way. We definitely will because, you know, Jamie Lee Curtis. »
