“You peruse the Internet and see things like, ‘How much makeup is in his hair to get that gray? Stop trying to make him look like George Clooney,'” Annable says with a laugh. “I spend 10 seconds in hair and 10 seconds in makeup. I couldn’t look any more like me!”

It is not uncommon for a hit Us television series to lose its main star somewhere down the line. In fact, history is riddled with examples of sad occasions where a show has had to continue on without one of its main attractions. George Clooney stopped saving lives for ER, David Duchovny gave up on extra-terrestrial investigation for The X-Files and Steve Carell resigned from the American Office. However, although those shows each carried on to enjoy similar levels of success, few would argue that Charlie Sheen’s departure from Two and a Half Men left the series with a permanent void.
In 2011, Sheen left the hit CBS comedy series after a heavily publicised row with its creator and head writer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory). As you are probably aware, Two and a Half Men continued on with Ashton Kutcher replacing Sheen in the lead role opposite Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. »

Before Clooney weds here's a look back at his former flames.
As we wait with bated breath for Amal Alamuddin to finally make an honest man out of George Clooney this weekend, here's a look back at the notorious bachelor's past loves.
Video- George Clooney Will Marry Amal Alamuddin in Venice
We all know many members of Clooney's ex-girlfriends but do you remember that he used to date Kelly Preston? The two dated from 1987-1989 and lived together long before either one of them was famous and before she became Mrs. John Travolta.
Following Preston was actress Talia Balsam. She is the only woman to ever get George to the altar. After their divorce in 1993 she went on to marry Mad Men's John Slattery and George uttered famous words he'd live to regret.
"It was the first year of ER and I said, 'I'm done,'" Clooney told Et in 2002 about never marrying again. "When you first »
A million leggy models/bartenders/aspiring red carpet hosts are having a little cry on the inside as George Clooney prepares to marry lawyer Amal Alamuddin in a reported 4-day fete in Venice. We tv shares the same sentiment as they announced a “Bye George!” Roseanne marathon, airing Clooney-centric Roseanne episodes starting Sunday, Sept. 28, at 10 a.m. E.T. To those around the world who are still holding a candle for the Cloonz, here’s a nostalgic look back at some of Clooney’s great romantic roles in past and recent history.

It doesn’t bode well for a film when it counts Jim Agnew and Sean Keller as its writers. After all the duo were responsible for penning Giallo, the film that made Dario Argento the laughing stock of Frightfest and sounded the death knell on the career of the once-master of the Italian horror genre. Then again it doesn’t bode well when a film starring Nicolas Cage makes its debut as a direct to DVD title either.
So what’s the spiel? Well:
After a life of crime in his younger years Paul Maguire (Cage), now lives a charmed life. Fully reformed from his old ways, he is now a successful businessman, with a nice house, a lovely wife (Nichols) and a wonderful daughter, who he dotes on. »

“Leo steps over the line. He goes way past the line, in fact, in terms of his physical ability,” previews series star Charlie Rowe, whose character and buddy Dash (played by The X Factor‘s Astro) sneak off the medical campus to hang with some college kids. “He’s thinking, ‘I’ll be fine.’ But a few things go wrong, and he realizes he doesn’t actually have the physical power to do this. »
As far as adversaries go, Mindy, you sure found a worthy one in Annette Castellano.
Danny’s mom makes her debut in this week’s Mindy Project, an episode that explores the Castellanos’ family dynamic by thrusting Dr. L into its midst.
Or, more accurately, Mindy thrusts herself into the guilt-trips, hurt feelings and favorites-playing that Danny and Richie have endured for years — and watching Mindy Kaling and Cheers queen Rhea Perlman throw down is going to be one of my recurring joys this TV season, I can already tell.
While the episode is still hot like Annette’s piping pot of gravy, »
We at TVLine have seen tonight’s Mindy Project (Fox, 9:30/8:30c), in which Rhea Perlman debuts as Danny’s hard-to-please mom, Annette Castellano. Perlman herself hasn’t, though not for lack of trying.
“I’m so technologically impaired,” the Cheers vet says, laughing. “They sent [the episode] to me this weekend, and I couldn’t open it. And I tried everything! So there you go. But I know what I did, so I know it was a good episode!”

On Sept. 22, 1999 at 9 pm, The West Wing premiered on NBC. Earlier that Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter reviewed the new drama, praising the series as "wonderfully engaging." Read the original review below: Even in a season in which new dramas outnumber comedies, it's not hard to pick the best. In this case, it's The West Wing, a compelling, intelligent and wonderfully engaging drama about the hardball world of national politics. Considering the executive producers, Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme from Sports Night and John Wells from ER, it probably shouldn't be any surprise that this new show

It's 1999 and I'm 12 years old. ER is five years old. We meet for the first time and it's love at first sight. There's something magical about the NBC hospital drama that took me—and America—by storm. I saw reruns on TNT, binged on them nightly until I was caught up with the current one on NBC. It's been 20 years since the show first premiered—Monday, Sept. 19, 1994—and the affects it had on the world of pop culture are still being felt today. ER gave us so much! Besides 15 years of entertainment, the show helped launch the careers of all your favorites. Without ER there'd be no George Clooney wedding mania. Without ER there'd be no The Good Wife.

At last month's Emmys, host Seth Meyers jokingly referred to Julianna Margulies as the only "ER" cast member ever to amount to anything. Get it? Because in the 20 years since "ER" debuted (on Sept. 19, 1994), many of its alumni have enjoyed distinguished careers, including an actor who was all but unknown when the series premiered, a fellow named Clooney.
In fact, of the original sextet, few of the actors stayed very long; most moved on quickly as their careers blossomed. The show went through multiple cast changes throughout its 15 seasons. For viewers, the attraction of "ER" turned out to be not the rotating cast of doctors and nurses but the innovative format, blending action histrionics, medical wonkery, and soapy personal drama. If you've wondered, then, what became of your favorite medics from Chicago's County General, here's a gallery tracing the careers of some of "ER"'s biggest stars. »

Minorities and women haven’t achieved significant progress in directing series TV, according to a survey from the Directors Guild of America, with Caucasian directors accounting for 81% of all primetime episodes while female directors were hired on only 14% during the past season.
The DGA survey covers more than 3,500 episodes and includes broadcast, basic cable, premium cable, and high budget original content series made for the Internet.
The report also showed that Caucasian males directed 69% of all episodes; minority males directed 17%; Caucasian females directed 12% and minority females directed 2% of all episodes.
The 14% figure for female directors matches the number for the 2012-13 season.
“Unfortunately, it can be shockingly difficult to convince the people who control hiring to make even small improvements to their hiring practices,” said DGA president Paris Barclay. “But the end result is something worth fighting for. This should matter to all of us, as a culture, as an industry, »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The first annual honoree was DeMille himself in 1952, followed by the likes of Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, James Stewart, John Wayne and on and on. Clooney has always been »
