Willie Nelson has never been so happy about losing 2 ounces of pot. The hirsute country singer has been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession after Texas authorities knocked the original, felonious amount he was allegedly caught with down from 6 ounces to 4 ounces. So, instead of a buzz-busting 180 days in jail and a $10,000 fine, Nelson is facing just a lesser fine. The "On the Road Again" singer was arrested Nov. 26 en route from California to Austin, Texas, when border patrol agents searched his tour bus at a checkpoint. He was released after posting $2,500 bail. "He said he feels great—he lost six ounces," Nelson's longtime harmonica player, Mickey Raphael, »
The man who smoked pot on top of the White House is now known as the man busted for smoking weed on his tour bus -- again. Willie Nelson was arrested for possession of marijuana while riding on his tour bus for the second time this year, and the latest charge could land him in the slammer. The five-o say they found the ganj on the seventy-seven-year-old touring warhorse when they stopped the Honeysuckle Rose near a border checkpoint in El Paso. Willie was on his way from California to — of course — Austin, Texas, and quickly posted the $2,500 bond. What kind of asshole cop arrests Willie Fucking Nelson? And for marijuana? You can never live down something that stupid. Now, thanks to this/these jerks, Willie faces 180 days in jail. Nelson has long dodged drug busts in Texas, as evidenced by his staple song "[...] »
Craig here with a new Take Three
Today: Anjelica Huston
Anjelica Huston's played so many memorable roles that I wish I'd called this series Take Ten.
The Witches and The Dead are essential Huston: key performances in two wildly differing films; both minor gems of their genres. As, respectively, the Grand High Witch and mournful Gretta Conroy she couldn’t have been more different, and in both she showed immense versatility. Essential, too, are Enemies: A Love Story and Prizzi’s Honor: an Oscar nod for the former; a win for the latter. (Nathaniel wrote about Mae Rose Prizzi previously - and the Grand High Witch, too.)
For Wes Anderson she played three independent women: two estranged wives in The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and a strange mother in The Darjeeling Limited. The Addams Family's Morticia parts are a double-bill of the joyfully macabre. »

The White Stripes frontman appeared with O'Brien at White's Third Man Records headquarters. Although 1,000 fans lined up, only 300 were admitted to the gig, which began with O'Brien performing solo, then accompanied by a backing band. "I've had a crazy six months," O'Brien told the crowd. "Six months ago, I was the host of The Tonight Show, the greatest franchise in the history of television. Then I started a live tour, going from small theatre to small theatre. And tonight I'm pressing a vinyl recording. I'm going back in time! Next week I'll be on vaudeville. »

Nashville, Tenn. (AP) — Conan O'Brien may have missed his calling. The once and future late night television host laid down a scorching set at Jack White's Third Man Records on Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn., and plans to release a vinyl album of the show. O'Brien has been touring the country with his band, putting on comedy shows while waiting for his new hosting gig at TBS to start. He left "The Tonight Show" earlier this year after NBC reinstalled former host Jay Leno. The redheaded host used The Redheaded Stranger Willie Nelson's "On The Road Again" to poke fun »

Oh my! Willie Nelson has cut his hair. The 77-year old legendary performer and activist says he is tired of the maintenance that goes with keeping his hair at that length. His hair was often braided and very long, it fell all the way to his waist.His before photo is left, Willie was in Los Angeles last month for a TV appearance and allowed the hair to fall down his back. Pop Eater has the after photos and muses, "the 'On the Road Again' star is now sporting a bob" and the post reveals that the "first pictures of Willie 2.0 show him happily strumming along as he performs in Maui on May 22."

Conan O'Brien opened the much-anticipated TBS-TNT upfront presentation in New York today with yuks about NBC (“The plot to Lost is more plausible than my last year at NBC”) and his new talk show that will debut on TBS on Nov. 8. “I really believe in cable television,” O’Brien told the crowd at the Hammerstein Theatre. “ I do not want to live in a country with less than five ESPN networks.”

On the season finale of Brothers & Sisters, the Walkers finally uncovered the mystery of Narrow Lake, finding fortune on a road trip. Unfortunately, they also found tragedy.
"On the Road Again" was an episode that tied up some loose ends while opening plenty of new doors for our characters - those who survive last night's events - to explore.
As the show seeks to re-boot next fall, reportedly with the help of a time jump, one has to wonder if Robert, Saul and/or Holly will be there for the Season Five premiere.
There are times when Brothers & Sisters is so melodramatic, it's hard to take seriously. There are times, though, like Sunday, when that melodrama leaves one near tears.
As Rebecca and Justin ran toward the scene of the car crash, we knew what they'd find there - Robert, unresponsive. But it didn't lessen the emotional devastation one bit. »

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the "On the Road Again" episode of Brothers & Sisters.
But the same episode, "On the Road Again," contained another a pivotal plot-twist that caught many viewers by complete surprise.
Uncle Saul, played by Ron Rifkin, is HIV-positive.
He joins an extremely small number of gay characters on scripted American television who have ever been identified as HIV-positive. The last such character, at least in such a high-profile TV project, may have been the character of Vince Taylor (Anthony Azizi) on the 2005-2006 series Commander-in-Chief.
Other regular gay or bisexual HIV-positive characters in TV history include Lee Campbell on The Best Years (a Canadian import that aired on The N in 2007), and several characters on the Showtime series Queer as Folk. »

Drama didn't die on the season finale of Brothers and Sisters, but somebody did. Before we leap forward one year into the future, let's take a look at what just happened on the ABC show. But if you haven't seen it yet, look away now.
Check Out Clips of the Season Finale
"On the Road Again" dealt with the decline of Ojai Foods, since it closed down last week. The Walkers, however, have survived the fall and are already moving on again. But how can they do that so easily when one of the characters has met their maker? Or is that just what they want us to believe?
Tonight we'll be dealing with a loss on Brothers and Sisters, and we don't just mean the end of season four. Last week, Ojai Foods officially closed and now the family has to cope with the financial ruin it left behind.

On "On the Road Again," the family faces defeat as a result of their business shutting down. However, a ray of hope awaits them as they discover something important - and helpful - in William Walker's pile of secret investments. Maybe their father really did look out for them after all.
Is a surgeon who has spent thousands of hours studying his craft likely to operate with a dull scalpel? As an actor, your body is your tool. You sink time and money into honing your acting abilities. But that work can be shortchanged if your instrument is subpar. Even if your physique has little bearing on the roles you go up for, fitness is an essential component of your work life, whether it means doing a physical task take after take, performing eight shows a week on stage, or making your first impression on a casting director when you walk into an audition room."Training and eating well—or eating not well—those are the most obvious tools to become something better or sometimes something that isn't the ideal," says Whitney M.

On the road again Last year, Phosphorescent braintrust Matthew Houck released a tribute to Willie Nelson featuring eleven well-chosen covers that avoided obvious hits and sentiments. He and his honkytonk band have obviously learned from that endeavor: The songs on their gorgeously sadsack follow-up Here’s to Taking It Easy evoke lost days and lonely nights with keen observations and road-weary melodies. »

Kimora Lee Simmons and 10-month-old son Kenzo catch a flight out of Los Angeles International Aiport on Monday.
What’s baby Kenzo — the fashion designer’s first child with husband Djimon Hounsou — like?

The model is also mom to daughters Ming, 10 and Aoki, 7½, with ex-husband Russell Simmons.

Conan O’Brien’s bearded, wandering-in-the-wilderness period has officially come to an end. O’Brien announced yesterday that he’ll be hosting a late night talk show on TBS, starting in November. And last night he kicked off his “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On TV” comedy tour in front of an adoring crowd in Eugene, Ore. Did the “Tonight Show” debacle damage Conan’s funny? Here’s what reviewers are saying.
“Though his trademark self-deprecation permeated his performance, like when he joked about having “no ass” while donning the ridiculous purple suit Eddie Murphy wore in his stand-up film Raw, O’Brien exuded defiant confidence throughout the night, bolstered by a crowd that roared with approval of nearly everything he did. He also used the format to show off his musical chops, strapping on a guitar for his personalized version of “On the Road Again” and an unfinished »
