Scott Kalvert, best known for directing 1995's "The Basketball Diaries," died Wednesday. He was found in his home in Woodland Hills and pronounced dead at 1:55 pm. The L.A. Coroner's Office is investigating the death as a possible suicide. He was only 49 years old.

Donnie Wahlberg, whom Kalvert directed in New Kids on the Block's 1993 video "Dirty Dawg," remembered the director in a series of tweets Friday. "Rip to a dear friend; Scott Kalvert. »
Dangerous byproducts of car-accident deaths, plus the police commissioner's visit to a museum, meant another active day for the Reagans.
"Insult to Injury," Friday's (March 7) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods" -- written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly, from a story by him and series script coordinator Andrew Raab -- made Frank (Tom Selleck) a chaperone for grandson Sean's (Andrew Terraciano) school field trip. The trek's main guide, Joyce Carpenter (guest star Annie Wersching), quickly proved herself something of a control freak.
"This isn't my first rodeo," she briskly informed Frank. "You're just to follow my lead." Clearly, she did not know Frank Reagan.
What looked to be a day of paperwork for Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) became something else when he took a call meant for a detective who had passed away. The distressed caller, named Jill (guest star Bess Rous), angrily told Danny that the NYPD and the justice system had failed her. »

Read the previous part in this series, here.
Perhaps even more so than Bastogne, this episode is a truly harrowing piece of television. The Breaking Point is a heart-breaking and unflinching look at the brutal toll the war took on this group of young men and continued to take on them for years to come afterwards.
The opening talking-head moments are extremely touching as the real men of Easy let us know just how horrifying their experiences in the forests near Foy were. Death was all around them, wherever they looked there was a dead soldier, and they had no time to look after their fallen friends when the worst came to pass. As one tearful veteran points out, the things he saw there »
Can a long-unsolved case still have a positive outcome?
Danny and Maria (Marisa Ramirez) were called to a school from which a youngster named Jenna had disappeared, a crossing guard telling them she'd seen the girl atypically get into a car rather than walk home. The situation brought back troubling memories for Danny, who'd failed to locate a missing girl named Allie years earlier and still was visited regularly by her father Joseph (guest star Patrick Breen), who continued to maintain hope she'd be found.
Erin (Bridget Moynahan) was handling the potential prosecution of Diana Del Rio (guest star Caroline Strong), who claimed she had a bipolar condition that caused her to fatally run over her building's superintendent. The defendant's lawyer, »

Rob's 10-part Band Of Brothers look-back continues with episode 2, Day Of Days...
Read the first part of this series, here.
After Currahee provided an initial introduction to the men of Easy Company, Day Of Days was a jolting wake-up call. The veterans at the episode’s start remind us of just how many men they lost on that first jump. Judging by the opening few minutes of confusion and carnage, you begin to wonder why it wasn’t so many more.
This episode revolves around Operation Overlord which took place on the 6th of June 1944. This was the military codename for the Battle of Normandy which famously included the vast D-Day beach landings. Easy’s job, along with that of many other paratrooper companies, was to land behind enemy lines and secure the causeway leading off the beach.
At the episode’s outset, as »

Matt Damon's been busy promoting Monuments Men this week with a stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live and a visit to Good Morning America, and he also made time for a special Reddit Ama. In the Ask Me Anything Q&A, fans and redditors have free rein to ask Matt whatever they want, and one wanted to know if Matt ever gets confused for Channing Tatum. Matt replied that he hasn't had that happen with Channing, but he does get confused for another star. Read more about his funny mistaken-identity scenario: "I do get confused with Mark Wahlberg a lot, and we just have a deal that whenever we get mistaken for each other we have to be very polite. Can't give the other a bad name. "This happened to me yesterday, I was walking down the street with my kids, and this guy screamed 'Mark Wahlberg!' I just kept walking, »

Someone who certainly knows the turf called the shots on the latest "Blue Bloods."
Series co-star Donnie Wahlberg made his directing debut on the CBS police drama with Friday's (Jan. 31) episode, "Manhattan Queens." He also continued to have a major presence in his weekly role as Detective Danny Reagan, who began the hour hiking through woods with partner Maria (Marisa Ramirez) to the location of a decomposing body.
Maria noted the expensive dress on the victim, who also sported a wig Danny referenced ... prompting him to reason the cops were onto "a story with an unhappy ending."
As Nicky (Sami Gayle) left for school, Erin (Bridget Moynahan) walked part of the way with her, dressed for a morning run. After the mother and daughter separated, Erin noticed a van seemed to be following her. She turned into an alley, and as she looked back at the vehicle, a blanket was »

"It's no pressure, coming after our two highest-rated episodes since the pilot. No pressure for me at all."
So says Donnie Wahlberg, wryly, about his directing debut on CBS' "Blue Bloods" Friday (Jan. 31). He also remains very evident as an actor as his weekly character, NYPD Detective Danny Reagan, and partner Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) probe the murder of a reality-show-star drag queen. Meanwhile, Danny's prosecutor sister Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is kidnapped by a woman who wants a new investigation of her son's drug-related murder case.
"It was a challenge, but it was a lot of fun," Wahlberg tells Zap2it of working both sides of the camera. "I've kind of known that I would eventually direct at some point ... but I guess I've just watched so many directors go through so many challenges, I've always thought, at the end of the day, 'Maybe I'm more of a producer than a director. »
Dis family Robertson? A week after A&E Network‘s Duck Dynasty posted its first year-to-year declines, Episode 2 of Season 5 continued the downward trend. The adventures of the Robertson clan drew 6.7 million total viewers, down an eye-opening 21% from the season opener. The 3.6 rating in the adults 25-54 demo was down a less-rough 14% from last week. The dwindling numbers come in the wake of the headline-hogging controversy over patriarch Phil Robertson’s comments about gays and blacks and his imposed-then-rescinded suspension from the show. Meanwhile, A&E’s premiere of Wahlburgers followed at 10:30 Pm and held only of half of Duck Dynasty‘s audience. The hourlong reality series from 44 Blue Productions — which chronicles Mark and Donnie Wahlberg heading back to Boston to join forces with brother Paul in a hamburger restaurant — drew 3.3 million total viewers, including 1.8 million in the demo. »

Like the restaurant of the same name, A&E's new reality series Wahlburgers puts Mark and Donnie Wahlberg's family front and center. While the famous brothers have a stake in the business, it is run day-to-day by their older brother, Paul, "the talented one." Wahlberg matriarch Alma, always at the ready with strong opinions, also is heavily featured and doesn't mind fueling her children's competition on who really is the favorite son. Wahlburgers focuses a great deal on the camaraderie and squabbles among the brothers (whose other siblings do not appear on the show), and the first

Past events can fuel present problems, as the Reagans' latest cases taught them anew.
Written by co-executive producer Siobhan Byrne O'Connor, Friday's (Jan. 17) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods," "Unfinished Business," set Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Maria (Marisa Ramirez) on the trail of Army veteran John Russelll (guest star Chad Michael Collins), who had assaulted his wife, Maryann (guest star Kelli Barrett), and taken their son Tommy (guest star Michael Capperella) from his school.
The Army, as represented by Maj. Harrison (guest star Terry Serpico), wasn't happy that Danny had started an investigation without clearing it with him first. A struggle over jurisdiction began, with Marine veteran Danny noting, "I understand protocol. I just don't like following it."
During a press conference on a weapons-selling bust, Frank (Tom Selleck) was confronted by Betty Lowe (guest star Karen Allen), who asked him "why I can't get justice for my daughter. And her killer is out there, »
