Eva Amurri Joins Henry Winkler’s ABC Sitcom
Eva Amurri Martino and Domenick Lombardozzi have joined The Winklers, Henry Winkler's semi-autobiographical new sitcom.

So just so we're clear: Henry Winkler's sitcom daughter, who is ostensibly modeled on his actual daughter, is "spoiled" and "somewhat controlling." Won't his real-life daughter find that insulting?

Screen Links – October 22 Link Roundup – Canaries, Vader, James Bond, And More

Well, we’re going to try this again, and just throw you some of the stuff that caught our eye over the last few days.

We’re actually hoping to get this out every couple of days or so, but if you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we really kind of suck at stuff like that.

This is also, hopefully and potentially, going to be a pretty wide range, especially moving forward. We’d like a little bit of everything, including all the stuff that there is no way we can cover – we can’t do everything.

Have fun.
