'L.A. Law's' Michael Tucker and Jill Eikenberry still asked about the 'Venus Butterfly'

Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker continue to prove the adage "The couple that plays together stays together."

The married performers who starred as attorneys and spouses Ann Kelsey and Stuart Markowitz on the 1986-94 NBC series "L.A. Law" often keep their work intertwined, as they demonstrated again Saturday (April 28) at Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls, N.Y. They recorded short-story readings for the National Public Radio program "Selected Shorts," and they'll act together again in the new play "Brace Yourself" in August at the Berkshire (Mass.) Theatre Festival.

"It's been a very nice career, and we've had a great time," Tucker tells Zap2it. "And we've been involved with some great people. 'Arthur' (in which Eikenberry played Dudley Moore's high-society fiancee) is a classic, and so is 'Diner.'" The latter movie -- which featured Tucker -- was directed by fellow Baltimore native Barry Levinson,

DVD Playhouse--November 2011

DVD Playhouse—November 2011

By Allen Gardner

Tree Of Life (20th Century Fox) Terrence Malick’s latest effort is both the best film of 2011 and the finest work of his (arguably) mixed, but often masterly canon. A series of vignettes, mostly set in 1950s Texas, capture the memory of a man (Sean Penn) in present-day New York who looks back on his life, and his parents’ (Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain) troubled marriage, when word of his younger brother’s suicide reaches him. Almost indescribable beyond that, except to say no other film in history so perfectly evokes the magic and mystery of the human memory, which both crystalizes (and sometimes idealizes) the past. Like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001, this is a challenging, polarizing work that you must let wash over you. If you go along for the ride, you’re in for a unique, rewarding cinematic experience. Also available on Blu-ray disc.

The Ultimate List of Films for Carmageddon!

Stay off the streets and stay in with a movie…that takes to the streets.

Los Angelenos are aflutter with impending chaos. And, if you don’t live in Los Angeles, you probably don’t understand. (I live here and I’m not sure I fully understand.) But this weekend (July 15-17), the City of Los Angeles has gotten it in its mind to shut down the 405 Freeway, one of the central lifelines for the (frankly absurd) amount of traffic that hits Los Angeles on a daily basis. This means that, functionally, no one’s going anywhere this weekend and the entire West side of Los Angeles is going to be choked off by the cold, unrelenting hands of the Los Angeles Dot.

Naturally, this has become a bit of a cultural meme (surely confusing anyone who doesn’t live in Los Angeles) dubbed by internet pun genii as “Carmageddon.

The Ten Best and Five Worst Films of 2009 (So Far)

2009's Ten Best and Five Worst Films (So Far) We're technically over halfway through 2009, but a disproportionately large number of great films tend to spring up in the latter months of the year, so let's call it halfway for the sake of our collective sanity. It hasn't been a terrific year for filmgoing so far this year, but there have been enough films worth celebrating to justify a roundup. Keep in mind that these rankings are tentative - they're largely based on single viewings, and my estimates of their relative worth may vary over the course of the year. My principal question when ranking new film is: "which films am I most eager to watch again?" With that in mind, my top ten films of the year so far, in descending order: 10.

Gay roles by straight actors we could've lived without

*Note: This list originally ran on July 9th, 2007

For a straight actor to successfully play a gay character is not as easy as one might think. Not everyone can pull a Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain, a River Phoenix in Private Idaho, or even a Robin Williams in The Birdcage. When I see a movie about gays with a straight lead and director and it fails, I often wonder how the voice would have been different with a gay director or gay actor. Would Cruising be the same film if the director were gay? Here are just a few gay characters played by straight actors that we all could’ve lived without.

Will Smith in Six Degrees of Separation

Will Smith wasn't a terrible actor in the 1993 film Six Degrees of Separation; however, it was obvious he was a little green for the role. Smith played the role of Paul,

Suspension for MSNBC's Shuster

Suspension for MSNBC's Shuster
NEW YORK -- MSNBC correspondent David Shuster will serve a two-week suspension for comments that angered the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

NBC News President Steve Capus confirmed on Thursday that Shuster will be back to work on Feb. 22. The suspension began last week when Shuster, filling in as guest host of Tucker, wondered aloud whether Chelsea Clinton was being "pimped out" by the campaign.

Shuster and NBC News apologized over the air and personally to the Clinton campaign and to Chelsea Clinton. It didn't stop a firestorm of criticism against MSNBC, which has been seen in some quarters as being anti-Clinton. MSNBC host Chris Matthews has been criticized by the Clinton campaign.

On Wednesday, Clinton confirmed that she would participate in a Feb. 26 debate in Ohio that she had already said she would attend but threw into doubt because of the campaign's anger at MSNBC.
