Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") won his third Emmy Award as Best Comedy Actor at the 65th annual ceremony Sunday night. With previous wins in 2010 and 2011, it puts him in the company of four other three-time champs: Don Adams ("Get Smart"), John Lithgow ("3rd Rock from the Sun"), Tony Shalhoub ("Monk"), and Dick Van Dyke ("The Dick Van Dyke Show"). And he is now just one win away from the all-time record of four victories in this category held by: Michael J. Fox ("Family Ties," "Spin City"), Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier"), and Carroll O'Connor ("All in the Family"). -Break- His episode submission this year to the judging panel was "The Habitation Configuration." He defeated Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development"), Don Cheadle ("House of Lies"), Louis C.K. ("Louie"), and Matt LeBlanc ("Episo »
The highlights from this year's Comic-Con were Tom Hiddleston surprising Hall H as Loki and Andrew Garfield spending a majority of his panel in character as Spider-Man. With the exception of Sacha Baron Cohen and the Spinal Tap crew, actors very rarely make appearances dressed in character. An even rarer sight is seeing voice actors dressed as the animated characters they play. It can be a bit bizarre, but it's always a treat to see. Here are 15 (and a half-ish) actors in cosplay as their own characters.
As part of their panel for Sdcc '13, the cast pre-recorded a bit that had them "forced" to dress up as their cartoon counterparts -- Bill Hader as Flint Lockwood, Anna Faris as Sam Sparks, Andy Samberg as Brent McHale, and Terry Crews as Earl Devereaux.

Chicago – The TV show “Get Smart,” which had its original run on the NBC network from 1965-1970, was an oddball classic. Created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the sitcom was a goofy satire on cold war politics of the 1960s, with a hapless operative named Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) working for the Control agency, spying against a foreign menace called Kaos. Barbara Feldon (Agent 99) and Bernie Kopell (Sigfried) were part of the supporting cast.
Feldon and Kopell were also part of The Hollywood Show, a two day gathering of favorite TV and movie stars to meet fans and sign autographs. The next show in Chicagoland will be at the Hilton Rosemont on September 7th and 8th, 2013 (details below the article). The Show will have over 30 celebrities in attendance, including Barbara Eden and Bill Daily (“I Dream of Jeannie”); Tippi Hedren (“The Birds”); Barry Livingston, Stanley Livingston and Tina Cole »

The Good Wife practically dared you to keep up with its weird plots and circumstances this week, and for those who were game, it was a fruitful trip into the cuckoo. Alicia had to spring our kooky lawyer pal Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) out of the pokey after she'd been arrested on overblown charges. Diane and Will took over for Elsbeth on a case concerning a young Olympic runner who tests positive for doping thanks to her aborted pregnancy, which she conducted in secret using mifepristone that produced a misleading test result. Because the runner doesn't want her abortion revealed, Will and Diane essentially have to lie in order to win the case. Ah, morals! Always sucks to abandon them for the sake of a weepy athlete. And of course, Eli put out more dumb fires for Peter while Peter learned a bit about how he treats his staff. Educational! »
Hot & Cold War Comedy! week continues at Trailers from Hell with TV writer Alan Spencer introducing "The Nude Bomb," a belated attempt to turn "Get Smart" into a feature film that was a surprise hit at the box office. Brit Clive Donner may have seemed an odd choice to direct, but in all probability nobody else would have been able to impose much personality on this generic Universal Studios project, which plays out pretty much like a TV movie despite the strenuous efforts of star Don Adams and some occasionally funny supporting players. Fans of the show still like this one, though. »
