Jesse McCartney Crashes into CSI
While Jesse McCartney is mostly known for his work as a singer and voice actor, he has had his fair share of live-action acting roles. He’s had various movie and television parts, most notably as Andy on the short-lived series, Greek. Now he’s been tapped to guest star on an episode of CSI, specifically during Episode 14, “Seeing Red”. McCartney’s role will see him alongside Nick (George Eads) as temporary best friends looking to solve a mystery. They’re almost like the Hardy Boys, only more tolerable.
As reported by CSI Files, McCartney is playing Wes, a recent college graduate involved in a car crash after he loses consciousness while behind the wheel. At some undetermined point, Wes comes to meet Nick and the two quickly form a bond and seek to discover what caused the crash. I thought the answer was pretty simple, »

Bad parenting has been the go-to fuel for many movies over the years, especially when used to generate laughs in babysitter comedies. This weekend a pre-slimmed down Jonah Hill stars as a suspended college student that takes on a babysitting gig in The Sitter even though he is woefully unqualified. It's a good thing for black comedies that parents don't check up on the person who will be watching their little angels or we wouldn't get to see Hill take the kids to a party, grapple with unhinged drug dealers and tear through New York City with the tots on a wild ride. Elisabeth Shue also drags the children she is babysitting along for a reckless romp around Chicago in 1987's Adventures in Babysitting, during which the 17-year-old sitter gets stranded on an...

From the moment Fox unleashed the clever "Need a Sitter?" poster advertising Jonah Hill as a for-hire babysitter, we were intrigued to see what comedic genius might be born of the qualified actor/director combination of the "Superbad" star and "Pineapple Express" helmer David Gordon Green.
Once the trailers hit, it was obvious audiences would be in for a raunchy, envelope-pushing experience, the effectiveness of which has the critical masses a bit divided and sitting at a 21 percent rating over at Rotten Tomatoes. Read on as we sift through "The Sitter" reviews:
Plot Twists, Turns and Caveats
" 'The Sitter' is wickedly absurd. Every parent's fears about the caretaker brought in at the last minute get amped up here. So »
The Children’s Defense Fund-California hosted its 21st Annual Beat the Odds Awards on December 1, honoring John Jimenez, Nancy Kannampuzha, Britany Lewis, Caylin Moore and Jeanette Wright, five incredible Los Angeles area high school students who “beat the odds.”
Children’s Defense Fund President Marian Wright Edelman and Hollywood’s supporters celebrated the high school “stars” for overcoming tremendous personal obstacles in order to achieve academic excellence. Awards were presented to the students by Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Elisabeth Shue, Jurnee Smollett and Rodney Peete.

Replacing Elizabeth Shue with Jonah Hill can't be anyone's idea of an upgrade, but the former's spunky Adventures in Babysitting innocence would be a couple of notches too nice for The Sitter, David Gordon Green's attempt to infuse the 1987 film's setup with the grit and strangeness of other up-all-nighters by Scorsese and Demme. The fusion works far better than Green's sword-and-sandal-and-stoners dud Your Highness, but is unlikely to connect with audiences like his previous '80s riff Pineapple Express. Hill plays loser Noah Griffith, who facilitates a rare night out for his divorced mom

Nothing like coming back from turkey-feasting break to an intense episode of CSI such as "Zippered," where bullets went flying when Catherine and Agent McQuad were trapped in a truck trailer.
To start, I was thrilled to see Grant Show and Matt Lauria guest staring as McQuad and Pratt, respectively. Because they have both recently been on my other show Burn Notice, it was nice to see a couple familiar faces, especially when you enjoy their work.
The way they were building up the relationship between McQuad and Catherine, I wondered if they were setting him up as the basis for her to take the job in DC. It would have been a good hook that the guy she likes just started a new job there.

The star, who has spent the past decade playing forensics expert Catherine Willows in the drama series, is shooting her final scenes for the show, and will walk away early next year - and she admits she is getting emotional as she prepares to leave.
In an interview with news show Entertainment Tonight, which aired on Wednesday, she said, "I think, 'How can I leave this? How can I leave such a wonderful (job)...' I don't even think of it as a job. It's people that I've been with for 12 years. It's been a fifth of my life."
Wiping away tears, she added, "It's been quite a ride... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get so emotional... I've been really lucky."
Helgenberger has appeared in over 260 episodes of CSI and was among the original cast members when the series debuted in 2000.
The actress will be replaced on the show by Elisabeth Shue. »

The formerly chubby Jonah Hill stars in “The Sitter”, which, uh, is about a chubby kid who babysits some unruly brats. Plus, he’s trying to get into some chick’s pants. Then a bunch of dudes including Sam Rockwell show up and hassle him. Basically, it’s like that ’80s movie “Adventures in Babysitting”, with Hill standing in for Elisabeth Shue. And, er, more raunchy comedy. Take a gander at 5 clips from the film below. Noah is a suspended college student, living at home with his single mom. When he is talked into babysitting the three, young, misfit kids next door, he decides to take them along on an attempted sexual rendezvous, and the night takes a wild and dangerous turn for the worse for which he is totally unprepared. Starring Jonah Hill, Ari Graynor, Max Records, Kevin Hernandez, J.B. Smoove and directed by David Gordon Green. Squatting December 9th, »

HollywoodNews.com: Marg Helgenberger is just now shooting her last couple of episodes of “CSI” before she leaves the long-running series. Robert David Hall acknowledges it’s another big cast change, and he’s going to miss her. “She’s a friend, she’s like a sister. I’ve known her for 12 years now. But of course, I support her decision to move on and try new things,” he says, “and I’m looking forward to working with Elisabeth Shue.”
The series, of course, has had quite a few comings and goings in recent years. Hall admits he still misses William Petersen, and Laurence Fishburne, who is a good friend of his. But now, “I’ve really come to love Ted Danson. He’s such a generous actor and such an interesting actor. You watch him and wonder, ‘What is he going to do next?’ As D.B. Russell, »

Elisabeth Shue is ready to get to work. As you may have heard, the Leaving Las Vegas Oscar nominee is succeeding Marg Helgenberger later this season on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Shue tells me she's been pitched—and turned down—many television projects in the past, but... The chance to analyze corpses and bullet casings came along at the perfect time. "For many years, I decided not to do television because I have three children, but now my youngest is finally old enough to be in kindergarten," Shue exclusively told me this week at the Children's Defense Fund-California's Beat the Odds Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel. "So I'm not feeling that kind of »
TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress and 1960s/70s sex symbol will guest-star on CBS’ Sunday night crime drama as the matriarch of the very powerful Miami family from which Carlos Bernard’s character and thus his son Esteban (Kuno Becker) aka “The Miami Taunter” hail.
Welch’s episode is set to air in early 2012, following a guest appearance by another iconic bombshell, 10‘s Bo Derek (playing the owner of a horse stable, »

Source: IGN I picked up this story over at the DC Movies fan page but it originally comes from IMDb so I'm not sure how accurate it is. The rest of their cast list for the movie is spot on though so there is nothing to suggest this isn't. According to them Cooper Timberline will be playing a 9 year old Clark Kent, which of course means flashbacks to Supes' time as a young whippersnapper back in Smallville. This is a plot device which has been used in pretty much all previous Superman movies and something many felt would be left out of this reboot altogether. 10 year-old Timberline has previously starred in two films; The Rose and Metanoia.. He is also currently filming Of Men and Mavericks which stars Jonny Weston, Gerard Butler and Elisabeth Shue. This casting has not yet been verified by anyone in the Snyder or WB camp »
