There Are Other Roles to Play & Ways to Earn a Living in Hollywood. Consider the Location Scout...

Earlier today, I published an item on foley artists (read/watch here). Continuing with the series highlighting those behind-the-camera positions that rarely, if ever, get much *love* for the work that they do, even though it's very important work (if only to inform and maybe even inspire), here's a profile of another *thankless* but crucial behind-the-camera job - the location scout. First, in the video that immediately follows, "CBS News Sunday Morning" with Charles Osgood, sheds some light on those who do that specific work. And below it, NPR does the same in an unrelated piece. As I did with the foley artists piece, I post this in part because I think location...

CBS Eyes Start of New Events Business

CBS is banking on the Beatles to help it start a new line of business.

On February 9, CBS News is slated to hold a live event to mark the 50th anniversary – to the day – of the band’s first American television appearance on CBS’ “The Ed Sullivan Show.” A two-hour symposium held at New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater will feature CBS News’ archival coverage of key Beatles moments as well as experts moderated by CBS News Senior Business Correspondent Anthony Mason, who is known for his profiles of musicians on “CBS News Sunday Morning.”

Mary Steenburgen opens up about newfound musical passion on 'CBS Sunday Morning'

  • Pop2it
You know Mary Steenburgen as an Emmy-nominated and Oscar-winning actress -- she's starred in everything from "Wilfred" to "Joan of Arcadia" to "Melvin and Howard," the latter her Oscar role. Recently, though, she's added "singer and songwriter" to her list of accomplishments.

Steenburgen, who is married to "CSI" star Ted Danson, was profiled on "CBS News Sunday Morning" this week and says that after a recent surgery on her arm, "the music started." She began hearing music everywhere and felt the need to start writing down what she was experiencing.

"At one point I kind of looked in the mirror and said, you know, you're a mom, you're a wife, people count on you, you can't go off the deep end into this kind of crazy, musical swirl," she says.

But she started to pursue it, and she's now written some 40 songs -- and even signed a songwriting contract with Universal Music.

John Mayer and Katy Perry making wedding plans?

  • Pop2it
Just days after engagement rumors started because John Mayer gave girlfriend Katy Perry a ruby ring for Valentine's Day, sources are saying the two are making wedding plans.

Yahoo is reporting that inside sources say the two want a "really intimate" wedding ceremony and that even though ruby ring was not a proposal, the singers have been discussing tying the knot near where Katy grew up in Santa Barbara.

"Katy and John want to have a really intimate traditional ceremony with only their closest friends and family. They're both from fairly traditional families and don't want a big party," says a source.

"While this might not be the official ring, it's a symbol of their commitment. Katy and John's relationship has become very serious very quickly. Katy always swore she wouldn't rush into marriage again, but they get on so well and she really thinks he's changed," the source continues.

On the Peninsula

How Robert Lipsyte, author of the new memoir An Accidental Sportswriter, stood athwart the sports page yelling, "Stop!"

When a young man on the make tells me he wants to be a sportswriter, I tell him to read one book. It's called SportsWorld by Robert Lipsyte. Starting next month, I'll tell him to read another: An Accidental Sportswriter, which is functionally Lipsyte's sequel. In sportswriting's cosmic baseball card set-Jimmy Cannon! Dan Jenkins! Charlie Pierce!-you can find men who wrote as pretty as the former New York Times columnist. But Bob is the five-tool sportswriter. His beat is the ballpark, the '60s, African-American history, women's lib, Muslim theology, sports as metaphor, and-most interesting for you, young sportswriter-the craft of sportswriting itself.

Lipsyte is the guy who makes us ask the pencil-stopping question: Are sportswriters wasting their careers?

Do You Prefer To Do It In The Theater Or At Home? (Survey)

A sign of the times perhaps? I was watching CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood earlier today, and this poll (with results) was presented…

The question asked was: Where do you prefer to watch movies? The results: 20% said at the theater; 74% say at home. Granted the audience for CBS News Sunday Morning are likely older, so those numbers would reflect that. However, there are a few of us young’uns who are up early enough on Sunday mornings to watch the program.

Regardless, I thought I’d use that as a platform, as, I think a lot of us would agree that we are indeed experiencing a shift in movie-watching habits across all groups.

Now, I’ve already shared my own preference on this web site (Sergio has as well); specifically, currently, I’d say that I do the bulk of my movie watching at home. It’s rare

Morgan Spurlock Continues to Recruit Advertisers, Draws Plagiarism Charges

Morgan Spurlock Continues to Recruit Advertisers, Draws Plagiarism Charges
I've interviewed Morgan Spurlock a few times. He's funny, charming, smart, and a very good salesman. That last part's the key to his new project, "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold." It's about the rise of product placement in Hollywood and includes Spurlock's attempts to monetize the project by recruiting advertisers, including an above-the-title presenting sponsor (technically speaking, the movie is now called "Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold"). Sounds like a great meta-movie to me, and a good match of star and subject. When "Tgmes" premiered at Sundance last month it received mostly good reviews; you can hear Alison Willmore talk about it on our Sundance podcast.

Even though Spurlock has already sold "Tgmes" to Sony Pictures Classics, the sales continue. Advertising Age reports that Spurlock is selling the naming rights to his talk at the upcoming Ted Conference on eBay. On the auction page, Spurlock promises that
