Birthday shoutouts go to Ryan Carnes (above), who is 30, Tom Hulce is 59, and Ryan White would have been 41. Gabriel Mann says that a deal is almost in place for an "iconic TV actress" to play his mother on Revenge. But who could it be? I like the idea of Donna Mills or Judith Light.

It's always good to have friends you can count on. However it's even better if you make them up. Whether it's to help you regain control in your life, cope with stress or just offer a well-rounded argument on why the local pimp/drug dealer should be put down like a dog, imaginary friends can be handy.
However, as they are conjured up from the recesses of (often) troubled minds, they do not need to adhere to the rules of the real world and the boundaries of what they can do are only restricted by the limits of their protagonist's imaginations. »

Of all the characters Dan Ackroyd played on Saturday Night Live back when the show was actually funny and clever, my favorite was a guy named Leonard Pinth-Garnell, a tuxedoed teevee critic who hosted segments called, alternatively, Bad Playhouse, Bad Cinema, Bad Ballet, and so on. Whereas the premise was obvious, the ambiance was brilliant. Pinth-Garnell was an über-snob, the kind who pontificate with their noses so high up in the air you’d think they’d drown in a light drizzle.
Needless to say, damn near everybody who ever applied letters to opinions has a bit of Leonard Pinth-Garnell in him, her, or it. Some of us try to keep him locked up in a dark corner of our brainpans, but he keeps on popping up on our shoulder like the devil that torments Donald Duck, or, more to my point, Tom Hulce in Animal House.
