Still, fans of FX's raunchy hit, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, already know actor Charlie Day, 35, as the show's lovable (but oh-so-weird) Charlie, whose character has a penchant for killing rats in the basement of Paddy's Pub and dressing up in a neon green leotard as the unofficial mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies, Green Man. But there's so much more to Day, and here's your chance to get to know the scene-stealer before It's Always Sunny »

We all wished we had a train that choo chooed around our living room until we turned 9 and realized that train went 4 miles an hour and it would be faster to walk to the fridge to get your dad his beer. The point of all this is that Jason Bateman has a new movie opening called The Change-Up. Bateman has been around longer than whatever that is that hangs down under Barbara Walters. neck.

Two comedic titans are heading for a big clash that’s sure to draw laughs on the August 14 episode of Lifetime’s dramedy Drop Dead Diva. Kathy Griffin pops up as Jenna Kaswell-Bailey — the sister to the oft-reviled Kim Kaswell (Kate Levering) — and goes head-to-head with Teri Lee (Margaret Cho), who plays star Brooke Elliot’s sassy assistant.
Griffin’s Jenna figures into the storyline by having her sister Kim represent her in her divorce proceedings, which — and we don’t know much more than this — center around the fight for the possession of a clock. Yes, a clock. Of »

Oh boy, the first episode of Two and A Half Men could be a doozy. After rumors swirled online that creator Chuck Lorre could kill off Charlie Sheen’s character to make way for Ashton Kutcher, Deadline is now reporting that a funeral is, indeed, in the works for the comedy’s ninth season premiere on Sept. 19. The not-so dearly departed? Sheen’s Charlie Harper, of course.
Apparently, the episode will reportedly open with a memorial service attended by many of Charlie’s girlfriends and that his beachfront property will subsequently go up for sale. Potential buyers will include real-life »

Regrettably, the studio behind Two and a Half Men had no comment about a report suggesting that Charlie Harper — a.k.a. the hedonistic character played by Charlie Sheen — will be killed off in the premiere episode of the CBS comedy this fall to make way for the introduction of Ashton Kutcher. (Specifically, Charlie may drive his car off of a cliff.)
Though TMZ hedges that the “first script isn’t locked” and that creator Chuck Lorre “often makes changes until close to taping,” it’s entirely possible that Men will want to wipe the slate clean. Nothing says good »

The Film Experience has always loved talking up theater, the true 3D experience. So let's do it weekly, even if it's brief. We'll make it movie adjacent: films adapted from stage, movies hitting the boards in a new form or worthy crossovers of any sort... that sort of thing. The lines in entertainment are much blurrier these days, aren't they? Many actors now do all three (tv, film, theater) with increasing regularity, don'cha know, no longer defining themselves as one medium actors.
I recently had the opportunity to see one of my all time favorite actresses on stage again: Kathleen Turner. Her major film career dwindled in the 90s but she's become a regular on Broadway and she's now starring as a foul-mouthed nun in Matthew Lombardo's drama "High". But not for much longer. It was announced yesterday »

Matthew Lombardo's new play "High" opened on Broadway Tuesday to a range of reviews and producers posted a closing notice Wednesday. The drama centers on a tough-talking nun (Kathleen Turner) working as a counselor at an addiction center. Last season, Lombardo's "Looped" depicted a dark day in the troubled life of Tallulah Bankhead. While that work also met with middling notices, star Valerie Harper did contend for the Best Play Actress Tony, losing to Viola Davis for the first rialto revival of 1987 Best Play champ "Fences." Recently, Turner has toured the country in another play about Bankhead titled "Tallulah." Her most recent Broadway appearance was in the 2005 revival of Edward Albee's 1963 Best Play "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" Turner contended for the Best Play Actress award, losing to Cherry Jones who won her second Tony for her work in that year's Best Play "Doubt." This time around »
Do you think that Charlie Sheen's condition as he rants against Warner Bros. TV and producer Chuck Lorre over radio, TV and Internet makes the $100 million wrongful termination lawsuits his attorneys a lost cause?Think again. Leading entertainment litigator Mitchell Langberg notes that there is more to Sheen's case than may be apparent at first blush. "In my experience, the studios in these employment things are at least mostly wrong. You have artists who are artists, and studios that are businesses. When something happens to make it personal on the business side, then it devolves into all kinds of issues," he says. Langberg's firm, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, has represented stars and companies through the years, so he's well versed in both sides of cases involving high-profile entertainment firings. The company represented Aaron Spelling back when Farrah Fawcett quit "Charlie's Angels" -- as well as Valerie Harper, back when »
