Edward Herrmann, the actor who gained fame playing a young Fdr on TV but was known more recently as the patriarch of “Gilmore Girls,” died Dec. 31 in New York. He was 71.

Herrmann, who co-starred with Jane Alexander in a pair of much-praised “Eleanor and Franklin” telepics in 1976 and 1977, had been previously diagnosed with brain cancer. His family told TMZ that he had been in the ICU for the past three and a half weeks, and they decided to take him off the respirator when his condition did not improve.

Herrmann was well-liked in the biz and respected for his deft touch any number of character roles. He lent both gravitas and warmth to “Gilmore Girls” in his role as the upper-crust wealthy father who softens in the face of his strong-willed daughter and granddaughter. Herrmann was a series regular through the show’s seven-season run from 2000-2007 on the WB and CW nets. »

On Trial for Murder, Businessman Robert Bashara's Shocking Double Life Is Exposed

10 December 2014 3:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

And that upstanding image might have remained intact - if his wife hadn't been killed. The spotlight of suspicion turned to Bashara, revealing what prosecutors say was a murder-for-hire scheme and what witnesses describe as a secret double life of meeting other women for bondage, discipline and sadomasochistic sexual encounters, some in a basement "sex dungeon," and snorting cocaine on a private golf course.

At 244 lbs., Andrea Wilamowski wasn't happy. "I never realized how sad I looked," The Biggest Loser contestant tells People of watching herself on the 16th season of the NBC reality weight-loss competition.

Junior Rock Band's Recital Fail Goes Viral (Video)

24 June 2014 5:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We've all been there. By "there," we mean "mortifying incident in front of peers." A few members of the Grosse Pointe Music Academy in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, were performing as the Rubber Band, playing a cover of Weezer's "Undone (The Sweater Song)," which for these kids surely has to qualify as "classic rock." It didn't go as planned. Part of what makes the video so endearing is the look of instant, pre-teen terror on the keyboardist's face when his instrument falls to the ground, or the deer-in-headlights look of the rest of the band. It's okay, kids - it's »

Watch This Weezer Cover Gone Adorably Wrong

20 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A few questions here: What cruel person put this video of a teenage cover band crashing and burning a Weezer cover on the internet? And why wouldn't they also include what (I assume!) was the band's joyous recovery? Let's assume I'm being super paranoid, but, even though it's posted by an account linked to Michigan's Grosse Pointe Music Academy, I smell the scent of Jimmy Kimmel on this thing. Either way: Get these kids a record deal; they've gone viral. »

Arrest warrant for singer Anita Baker is dismissed

24 March 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Detroit (AP) — A Michigan judge has dismissed an arrest warrant that had been issued for Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker. A Wayne County Circuit judge had signed off on the warrant last week. It was sought by the lawyer for a company that says Baker owes it $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe home. According to Wdiv-tv, Judge Edward Ewell said Monday that while the warrant has been dismissed, the lawsuit over the money will continue at a hearing in April. Baker tells Wxyz-tv she's grateful the judge lifted the warrant. The singer's lawyer has said Baker didn't know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating. The company's lawyer says he wants to see his client get paid for the work it did. Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Arrest warrant issued for singer Anita Baker

Detroit (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued for Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker. A Wayne County Circuit judge signed off on the warrant this week. It was sought by the lawyer for a company that says Baker owes it $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe home. Baker's lawyer, Jamal Hamood, says he plans to file a motion Friday to cancel the warrant. Hamood says Baker wasn't served with papers and didn't know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating. He says Baker is out of town and will remain so until the warrant issue is cleared up. The company's lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn't want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid. Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The McLarty family, of the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe Woods, say they were awakened around midnight on March 5.

"She was surprised that Hunter simply sat outside and continued to whine," read a statement from the Michigan Humane Society, according to CBS Detroit. When Hunter returned to the family bedroom, »

The Overlooked Hotel – Grosse Pointe Blank

26 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Overlooked Hotel is a new column in which we throw the spotlight behind the front line, champion those unfairly lost in the shallow focus of fame and feed the hungry underdogs.

Our second guest in the Hotel is George Armitage’s 1997 none more black comedy comedy Grosse Pointe Blank.

John Cusack may occasionally slum it in by-the-numbers films (2012, Serendipity, America’s Sweethearts – discuss), but when he is really applying himself he is amongst the most accomplished actors working today. Endearing, personable, yet edgy enough to convincingly portray characters as diverse as Craig Schwartz, Roy Dillon and Robert Hansen, Cusack’s best work has perhaps tended to feature in the lesser-known, unheralded films on his CV, which is where we come in. More to the point, that is where Grosse Pointe Blank comes in.

Released in cinemas in 1997, Grosse Pointe Blank has Cusack’s fingerprints all over it. He starred in it, »
