Q&A: Jim Parsons and Bob Newhart on Actor Chemistry and the State of Sitcoms

7 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On “The Big Bang Theory,” Dr. Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) idolizes his childhood hero, Professor Proton (Bob Newhart), much to the professor’s dismay. In real life, though, the admiration is a bit more mutual — and that was clearly evident when the two Emmy-nominated actors (Parsons for “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Normal Heart”; Newhart for “Big Bang”) met at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills for a conversation with Variety. As it turns out, the pair have more in common than brilliant comic timing: Parsons grew up in Houston, where Newhart recorded the 1960 album that launched his career, “The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart.” And on stage, both played the role of Elwood P. Dowd, a sweet man who befriends an invisible 6-foot rabbit in “Harvey.”

Variety: How did you two first meet?

Parsons: At the table read.

Newhart: Actually, we met at the Emmy Awards before that. »

Summer sitcom rewind: 'Seinfeld' - 'The Red Dot'

23 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Continuing our occasional summer look back at classic sitcom episodes, it's time to discuss "The Red Dot" from "Seinfeld" season 3, coming up just as soon as my favorite book is "Venetian Blinds" by Art Vandelay... "Seinfeld," the short version: For that, take a look at this story I wrote at the start of this month on the 25th anniversary of the airing of "The Seinfeld Chronicles" pilot. As I noted at the end of the last summer sitcom rewind piece, I was limited in my "Seinfeld" options by whatever episodes Crackle happened to be streaming this month. (The way my luck's going with this project — more on that at the end — the calendar will turn over to August and "The Contest," "The Outing" and "The Opposite" will all suddenly be available.) "The Red Dot" isn't likely to make a lot of "Seinfeld" fans' top 10 lists, but that ultimately speaks more »

Don’t women already have enough to think about in their lives?

Comedian Lena Waithe Inks Deal With Bet to Write Pilot ‘Twenties’ (Exclusive)

1 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lena Waithe, writer and producer known for YouTube series such as “Dear White People,” has signed a deal to write a pilot script for Bet based on her YouTube series “Twenties,” Variety has learned.

The show will be produced by Flavor Unit.

“Twenties” focuses on the experiences of a few twentysomething black women trying to find their voice and place in society. “Twenties” debuted on YouTube last August. Waithe hopes the pilot will reach a wide range of demographics and use its wit to spark meaningful conversation.

“We want to be entertaining, but we also want to make people think and not just sit back mindlessly,” Waithe said. “We really want them to sit up and pay attention.”

Waithe, who cites shows including “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “A Different World” as influences, said she likes to use comedy to give voice to groups that aren’t always illuminated in humor. »

Valerie Harper Says She's Now 'Cancer-Free' After Terminal Diagnosis

16 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Valerie Harper, best known for playing Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda, says she’s “absolutely cancer-free” over a year after announcing that she had terminal brain cancer.

Valerie Harper Is 'Cancer-Free'

"I'm absolutely cancer-free!" Harper told Closer Weekly. "My last scans have been positive, and my doctors are very happy. [The oncologist] looked at the scans and said, 'Oh my God, Valerie, this is very encouraging!' "

While her doctor is wary of telling the legendary comedic actress that she’s in remission, he’s more than happy with what the scans are showing. "My doctor doesn't use that term [remission],” said Harper. “He likes to say, 'I give you a treatment, and it's either responsive or non-responsive — and you are having a phenomenal response.'"

As part of her treatment regiment, Harper takes several pills in a “pulse does” – at one sitting, once per week.

In response to a story in Closer Weekly that quotes Valerie Harper as having declared that she is “absolutely cancer-free,” the Emmy winner has come out to say that the quote is unfortunately “erroneous.”
