More than likely, TNT's Kyra Sedgwick-produced "Proof" is more drama than supernatural in nature, but the medical-themed pilot has landed its lead actress so we'll keep passing on the news until we get confirmation one way or the other.
Per Deadline, Jennifer Beals ("The L Word," The Bride, Flashdance) will head up the cast as Dr. Kathryn Russo, a skeptical, hard-science, brilliant female surgeon with a caustic edge who has been struggling with the devastating loss of her teenage son and a growing estrangement from her surviving daughter.
Dr. Russo is persuaded to investigate cases of reincarnation, out-of-body experiences, hauntings — all of it looking for verifiable proof to answer one of life’s greatest questions: Is death truly the end, or is there something else beyond?

It is hard, even for me, to fully recall the furore Fatal Attraction caused on its release back in 1987, appearing on the cover of both Time and People, and generating hours of highly charged and sometimes hysterical debate. It was seen by some as a parable about Aids, by others as a critique of the permissive society, and by others still as an attack on feminism in general and single career women in particular. All of which could not have been further from my mind as I was writing the screenplay. It was even alleged that the cop shaking Michael Douglas by the hand at the end is actually congratulating him on a job well done – the crazed career woman put out of her misery, »
"American Idol" Season 13 is finally starting the live shows with the Top 15 girls Tuesday (Feb. 18), though only 10 of them will get to perform, which doesn't seem very fair (and as it will turn out, is not fair because so many of them completely tank). They've been working hard in boot camp all week and now only some of them get to perform? Mean.
Before things kick off, Harry Connick Jr. says this is the most talented group since the first year. That's ... not a good comparison. Kelly Clarkson is awesome, but let's not get carried away that Season 1 is the pinnacle of talent for this show, Hcj.
Just as a reminder, the viewers will vote five men and five women into the Top 13 and the judges will pick the three wild card spots. Let's get to the performances:
1. Majesty Rose, 'Happy,' Pharrell Williams
Terrible song choice. Majesty can sing, »
Netflix Instant is a wonderland of new treasures and old favorites. Here are five titles you’ll want to scoop up during, say, a particularly chilly Tuesday night.
For me, the creepiest thing about Sunset Boulevard isn’t Norma Desmond’s clownish, Dee Snider-like expressions or William Holden‘s descent into some seriously gray gardens. It’s that the characters in the film make such casual references to other movie stars of the time — Barbara Stanwyck, Tyrone Power, Alan Ladd, and Betty Hutton all come up — that you feel like you’re listening to modern-day showbiz types in a 1950 movie. These people sound like tamer Nikki Finkes. It’s weird! I’m not used to people in old movies sounding real and current. What if Grace Kelly just turned to the camera in Rear Window and deadpanned, “I don’t find Hannah sympathetic on Girls“? It’s like that! »

Nick Frost and his arch nemesis Chris O’Dowd get down and dirty in a garage dance-off in this latest clip from James Griffiths’ dancing comedy “Cuban Fury.” This looks like a pretty funny movie with tongue firmly planted in cheek. And let’s face it, watching fat guys dancing are always funny. Also, check out a new poster for the movie, which apes the famous sequence from 1983′s “Flashdance.” Jennifer Beals ain’t got nothin’ on Nick Frost. And the dance-off clip is pretty hot, too. Beneath Bruce Garrett’s shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click – Nick Frost is Cuban Fury! Starring Rashida Jones, Nick Frost, Kayvan Novak, and Chris O’Dowd. The fury comes this Valentine’s Day. »

Beyoncé opened the Grammys with "Drunk in Love" and brought viewers back to the '80s with chair acrobatics reminiscent of Jennifer Beals's racy routine in 1983's Flashdance. Queen Bey, strapped into La Perla lingerie, made the moment her own, but it's hard to ignore the similarities. Beyoncé wasn't the only trendsetter at Sunday's show to recreate moments from pop culture's past. Here are five more Grammy darlings who prompted the question, "Where have I seen that before?" Pharrell Williams and Smokey Bear Williams spent most of Sunday night playing robot translator, but his hat had its own agenda. »
