It’s Top Chef Texas Episode 5, entitled Don’t Be Tardy for the Dinner Party, and after last week’s sleep-deprivation Chili Cookoff that caused seven chefs to confess cumin-related war crimes under duress, we are heading to Dallas! Dallas, eh? Looks like it’s time to give Patrick Duffy a call so he can cue up this classic TV theme song! First things first – Chris C, the season’s “pretty boy” (though with this group, it’s not unlike being the “pretty boy” on a senate subcommittee) says he used to be fat, and shows this picture to prove it: Also, Chris used to be a nerd, a tomboy, and got bullied all the time in school but now he’s nominated for an Oscar! (Is what Chris would say if he were a super-attractive actress on The Tonight Show). What are we talking about? Oh yeah, the crazy »

The Ewing family is returning to mess with Texas. A new trailer for the coming series “Dallas” has just hit the web.
Based on the popular TV series “Dallas,” which aired from 1978-1991, five characters from the original show–played by actor Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Charlene Tilton and Steve Kanaly–will reprise their roles in the soapy drama documenting the fierce rivalries and power struggles of a Dallas oil magnate and his family.
Although the trailer looks plenty dramatic, »

TNT has released this new extended sneak peek at "Dallas," coming to the channel in the summer of 2012. Famous for its ratings-grabbing cliffhangers, the original series was known for its wealth, seduction, scandal and intrigues. Set in the big state of Texas, TNT's new "Dallas" also lives life large and in the fast lane and brings a new generation of stars together with cast members from the original drama series. The series stars Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo and Brenda Strong, and they will be joined by iconic stars Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing. »
Jesse Baget’s Cellmates (originally titled White Knight) was one of my top picks at this year’s Arizona Underground Film Festival – and the biggest surprise of the fest simply because when I read the feature’s synopsis in the program my first thought was there’s no way this film would work. When one sees the phrase “buddy comedy” the names Tom Sizemore and Stacy Keach just don’t come to mind. Add in Héctor Jiménez of Nacho Libre and we might be getting closer…but still. Sizemore as a former Klansman meets Keach as a potato-obsessed warden meets Jiménez as an activist immigrant laborer (set in a Texas prison) sounds like a recipe for disaster. So it’s a testament to the sharp talent of Tucson-native Jesse Baget and his co-screenwriter Stefania Moscato that Cellmates not only shines as a hilarious comedy, it doubles as a sweet-natured satire on racism. »

Roger Ebert is regarded as one of the greatest film critics in the world. But after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2002, he was left unable to speak, eat or drink. In an extract from his new book, Life Itself, he explains how his life has been changed
My secret as an interviewer was that I was actually impressed by the people I interviewed: not only by Bill Clinton, John Wayne or Sophia Loren, but by Sandra Dee, Stella Stevens and George Peppard. I am beneath everything else a fan. I was fixed in this mode as a young boy and am awed by people who take the risks of performance. I become their advocate and find myself in sympathy. I can employ scorched-earth tactics in writing about a bad movie, but I rarely write sharp criticism of actors themselves. If they're good in a movie, they must have done something right. »
Next summer, TNT is taking a slightly different approach to a classic television series. While networks have rebooted shows like Hawaii Five-o and Charlie’s Angels, TNT is going a different route and resurrecting Dallas as a continuation of the original series. Not only will storyline continuity exist from the original series (which ended in 1991), but three of the show’s original actors are returning to reprise their roles: Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing), Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Linda Grey (Sue Ellen Shepard Ewing).
Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives) joins the cast as the fourth member of the older generation (and Bobby’s new wife, Ann), while four young actors and actresses dominate the younger generation, consisting of J.R. and Bobby’s sons and their girlfriends. After taking a break after shooting the pilot, production on Dallas resumed recently and we had an opportunity to chat with Brenda about her role on the show, »
In October 2006-2010, five annual Wonder Woman Day events raised over $110,000 for Domestic Violence programs in Portland, Oregon and Flemington, NJ. The five-year combination of auctions of over 1,100 original art pieces, plus collectibles, autograph signings, and photo opportunities garnered spectacular turnouts and four Portland Mayoral Proclamations.
This year, the event will take on a new name and an expanded mission! On October 30, 2011, the new Women of Wonder Day — again as a part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month — will take place, returning to Excalibur Books in Portland, Oregon, and Comic Fusion in Flemington, New Jersey, as well as at Heroes and Fantasies in San Antonio, Texas.
This year’s contributions for auction include not only artwork featuring heroines from the world of comics — Wonder Woman, She-Hulk, Storm, Michonne from The Walking Dead, Leetah from ElfQuest — but also from the world of media as well, including Lisbeth Salander, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, »

"Extra" host Maria Menounos went on an exclusive set tour of the new "Dallas" TV reboot where she sat down with its star, Larry Hagman, to talk about reprising his role as baddie J.R. Ewing, and about his battle against prostate cancer.
"I feel good," said the 80-year-old star. "I haven't started my therapy yet, but it's treatable and curable. I'm going to try to work through the whole thing and keep working during the therapy. »
The actor, who revives his Bobby Ewing character in the cult show's comeback next year, was attending a motor home exhibition in Birmingham, England when he appeared as a guest on morning programme Daybreak.
He showed off his skills at the grill by frying eggs and sizzling bacon for the crew - but he was disappointed at the small-scale British breakfast.
As he tended to the meat, Duffy said, "This is a small barbecue. It's not like the Dallas, sort of Texas barbecue. We do the entire pig on the barbecue. Once you get past the squealing, the food is fantastic."
But the actor was left-red faced after taking his eye off his cooking for a brief interview, telling viewers: "Do not look back down at the bacon - we have burnt the bacon!" »
Break out your 10-gallon hat and light up a cigar: Channel 5 has bought the rights to the remake of 80s soap, Dallas.
The new incarnation of the Texas oil drama, which once famously brought the nation to a standstill with the question "Who shot Jr?", will once again star original cast members Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray.
The original series of Dallas ran for 13 years until 1991.
The makers of the new show, which will air on TNT in the Us, have promised "not a remake as much as a continuation" which "takes the next generation of Ewings and continues the battle". A trailer is available here. »

So UK audiences will go to the Oil Barons' Ball – the Dallas reboot, currently shooting in Texas and featuring original cast members Larry Hagman (Jr), Patrick Duffy (Bobby) and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) has been bought by Channel 5. It is indescribably good news.
The 10-part series, made by TNT, picks up the tale of the Ewing family years down the line, with the aforementioned senior cast now leaving the sexy intrigue and oil-soaked frottage (see some of the publicity pictures) to the newer, younger cast members. But the older generation will provide that essential continuity to keep die-hard fans tuning in, along with the decision to return to Southfork, original home of the Ewings all those years ago.

Australia may not have an overabundance of horror films but they’ve managed to produce some quality genre pictures. The recent success of the acclaimed documentary Not Quite Hollywood has shed light on a much overlooked aspect of Aussie genre filmmaking, from lowbrow slashers to twisted thrillers and gross-out horror comedies. Back in the 70′s a number of prominent filmmakers began to develop a film movement that would eventually see the successes of such films as Mad Max and The Last Wave. It was during this time that Australian cinema as a whole experienced resurgence due to increased governmental funding and eventually gave way to what international film critics termed the “Australian New Wave” or the “Golden Age of Australian cinema”.
New Zealand hasn’t produced many horror films over the years, but those it has given birth to are remarkably strong entries. In fact one of the biggest filmmakers »

"Mr. Travis had been struggling with laryngitis that resulted »

TNT has unveiled the first trailer for the network's upcoming "Dallas" TV series, which is a continuation of the popular show that aired from 1978 to 1991 and centered on the Ewing family, a cattle and oil dynasty occupying the expansive Southfork Ranch in Texas. Check out the trailer below. Plot: A long and bitter rivalry between brothers Jr Ewing (Larry Hagman) and Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) eventually led to Jr losing control of most of the Ewing industries. In the new "Dallas," this explosive rivalry now lives on through another generation, with the future of the family fortune in the hands of the Ewing offspring: cousins John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson), the son of Jr and ex-wife Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe), the adopted son of Bobby. Jordana Brewster stars as Elena, who is involved in a love triangle with Christopher and John Ross. Julie Gonzalo stars as Christopher's fiancee, »
CBS Larry Hagman
In the fall of 1982, then-president Ronald Reagan was navigating the economy out of a severe recession, combating a 10% unemployment rate and dealing with a 49% approval rating. Every Friday night America would tune-in in droves to CBS for the No. 1 rated television show in the country, “Dallas.”
Perhaps sensing that the time is right for a little old-fashioned escapism with an antagonist it’s kind of fun to root for, Warner Brothers has announced it is relaunching “Dallas »
