There were few surprises when nominations for the Writers Guild TV Awards were revealed on Wednesday with castaway show Lost, mob hit The Sopranos, and Kiefer Sutherland-starring 24 all battling it out for Best Drama. The shows' writers were joined on the list by scribes from Grey's Anatomy and Deadwood, while Best Comedy nominations went to Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock, The Office and Arrested Development. Meanwhile, television network NBC dominated the New Series category, with nods for writers on 30 Rock again, as well as Friday Night Lights, Heroes and Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. They'll be battling it out alongside ABC's Ugly Betty, executive produced by Frida star Salma Hayek.

Black and Piven Patch Things Up

22 November 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jack Black and Entourage star Jeremy Piven have patched up their relationship after a miscommunication emerged when Black appeared on the Howard Stern radio show. The Nacho Libre star appeared on Stern's show last week and claimed that Piven had held a six-year grudge against him because he won the role of a record store geek in the hit film High Fidelity. Black insisted Piven was still upset about losing out on the plum part and recently went out of his way to sabotage him while he was speaking to a director at a premiere. The King Kong star told Stern, "(I was talking to a director when Piven) stepped in and all of a sudden he was talking to the director and I was standing there facing the back of his head. I was like, 'Whoa, dude! What are you doing? You just cut me off!' He turned around and there was this strange, awkward tension." A mutual friend tells PageSix.com that the two have now put their differences behind them saying they "smoked a peace pipe at a friend's house in LA and discussed their mutual admiration for each other. Mutual admiration is in full effect." »

Evans Fumes Over 'Entourage' Character

28 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Moviemaker Robert Evans is reportedly furious over a new character in TV hit Entourage, which appears to parody him. The Cotton Club producer was approached by US cable network HBO earlier this year to make a cameo in the comedy show, but he refused, although he did give permission for the cast and crew to use his home. In this month's episodes of the show however, Martin Landau plays a "washed-up" filmmaker named Bob Ryan, which insiders claim is based on Evans. A source tells the New York Daily News, "They named the character Bob and made him an old, loopy producer. They even used Evans' own house in the show." However, a HBO representative insists, "Bob Ryan was not based on Robert Evans." »

'Entourage' scores big in season debut

13 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Even against the NBA Finals, the boys of Entourage got game. The HBO comedy series opened its third season with its biggest audience ever on Sunday at 10 p.m., reaching 2.7 million despite male-skewing competition on ABC from Game 2 of the NBA Finals. That's a big improvement over Entourage's second season premiere last year, which opened to just 1.6 million. The second season average was 1.9 million. Not as lucky at 10:30 p.m. was new comedy Lucky Louie, which dropped nearly half of the Entourage lead-in, grabbing 1.5 million. At 11 p.m., another new series, Dane Cook's Tourgasm, held onto 1.1 million. But HBO got better news from the third season premiere of Deadwood at 9 p.m., which returned with 2.4 million. That's down from last season's premiere haul of 2.8 million, but on par with the show's second-season average. Elsewhere in cable, Discovery Channel netted 2.3 million at 9 p.m. with its two-horu special: Krakatoa: Volcano of Destruction. Animal Planet perked up at 8 p.m. with the Meerkat Manor, which drew more households than any series premiere in its history. »

A member of Adrian Grenier's real-life entourage was rushed to hospital on Monday night after the actor tried unsuccessfully to revive her.

Chris Penn: 1965-2006

25 January 2006 | IMDb News

Actor Chris Penn, brother of Sean Penn and star of such films as Reservoir Dogs and Mulholland Falls, was found dead Tuesday at a condominium in Santa Monica; he was 40. Few details were released surrounding Penn's death late Tuesday afternoon, though sources reported there were no signs of foul play, and an autopsy was to be conducted to determine the cause of death. A spokesperson for the Penn family confirmed the actor's passing and released a statement saying that Penn's family "would appreciate the media's respect of their privacy during this difficult time." The son of director Leo Penn and actress Eileen Ryan, Penn was the younger brother of Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn and musician Michael Penn, and began his acting career in the early 80s, appearing in such films as Rumble Fish, All the Right Moves, and Footloose; he appeared alongside his brother in the 1986 film At Close Range. Penn went on to specialize in working-class character roles, achieving fame for his portrayal of Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs as well as such films as Short Cuts, The Funeral (for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination), and Mulholland Falls. Most recently, he appeared in the film version of Starsky & Hutch as well as episodes of TV series Entourage and Everwood, and his latest film, The Darwin Awards, was slated for a premiere Wednesday night at the Sundance Film Festival. --Prepared by IMDb Staff »
