Paul Walker made a name for himself far beyond the Fast and the Furious franchise. The actor -- who died tragically in a car collision on Saturday, Nov. 30 at the age of 40 -- leaves many memorable films behind. After conquering the small screen in appearances in Charles in Charge, Who's the Boss and The Young and the Restless in the early 90s, Walker would then get his feet wet on the big screen with the low budget 1998 surfer comedy Meet the Deedles.

Los Angeles – Marcia Wallace, who created two classic TV roles on “The Bob Newhart Show” and “The Simpsons,” passed away in Los Angeles, according to her agent on Saturday. She was 70 years old. In the 1970s, she was known as Carol Kester, Bob Hartley’s assistant on that Newhart show. In 1990 – one season after “The Simpsons” began – she took on the voice role of Edna Krabappel, the frazzled and man-hungry fourth grade teacher of Bart Simpson.
Marcia Karen Wallace was born in Creston, Iowa, and began her theater career in college. The day she graduated she headed to New York City with $150 dollars in her pocket and a dream to be an actor.

Some of my most enduring childhood memories include time spent with my favorite television characters. I was a heavy reader but television influenced my writing style immensely. I grew up with the Seavers. I wanted Charles in Charge of me. I yearned to hang with Zack Morris. Did I practice Balki Bartokomous’s dance of joy in my bedroom? “Don’t be ridiculous!” Of course I did! Despite my penchant for Miller-Boyett and Carsey Werner sitcoms and Aaron Spelling and David E. Kelley dramas, I also found company with Black shows that didn't involve a Cosby. As an "oreo" in the burbs, Black faces weren't abundant in my life, but TV provided a variety of Black »

Jimmy Fallon's musical impressions, with help from house band The Roots, may be the defining feature of his Late Night show. From Bob Dylan singing "Charles In Charge," to Neil Young singing "Whip My Hair," to Jim Morrison singing "Reading Rainbow," these performances are typically the thing that critics point to as Fallon's signature. But if, or more likely when, he takes over the Tonight Show on NBC next year, he will also be bringing with him the most comprehensive slate of political impressions of almost any comedian working today. »

Christina Applegate is an example of how a young performer can make a graceful and successful transition to an adult career, and every time I hear someone make excuses for a Lindsay Lohan or an Amanda Bynes during a spectacular public flame-out, I feel like Applegate is the perfect way to refute the claims that it's the system that ruins these people. After all, when Applegate was cast on "Married With Children," she was a kid, and she'd already been acting for the better part of a decade. She did guest bits on TV shows like "Charles In Charge" and played »
