John Corbett, who has been straddling careers as an actor and a musician, will blend the two with a starring opposite Denis Leary in FX‘s music comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll. Written by Leary, the project centers on Johnny Rock (Leary), the magnificently talented lead singer of New York’s legendary early-’90s band The Heathens. His best friend Flash (Corbett) was being called the next No. 1 lead guitar player on Earth, with their tandem compared to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards or Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. Minus the money. And the fame. And the ability to stay in the same room for longer than five minutes without wanting to kill each other. Still, the critics loved them. Their live shows were selling out. But Johnny had a problem with booze. And coke. And weed. And pills. And cough medicine. And oh yeah – he slept with Flash’s wife. »

Ahead of the premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-reality series, we wanted to take a closer look at her career (and personal) recovery. While most view the time around the release of I Know Who Killed Me as her big breakdown moment, troubles for the actress started shortly after the success of Mean Girls. Lohan was under a microscope. After collapsing during the making of Herbie: Fully Loaded and getting into a string of car accidents, her her star started to diminish. Suddenly everyone was wondering if she was worth the effort or even all the unwanted attention. Since then, Lohan has been struggling to bounce back and erase any memory of the past decade with a series of comeback attempts.
Comeback Attempt #1: Don’t Call It a Comeback
Immediately following the success of Mean Girls, Lohan completed her final obligation to Disney: Herbie: Fully Loaded. During that »

Chris Pine is not keen on flag-waving patriotism, so his fresh take on Hollywood's favourite all-American CIA man is to make him an everyday hero … with muscles
• Video interview: Chris Pine
Chris Pine has already gone where one man has gone before. In 2009, and again last year, he took on Captain Kirk, a part until then synonymous with William Shatner. So tackling Jack Ryan, the CIA agent played by various actors over the years, wasn't such a big deal. "I think I learned my lesson doing Kirk," says Pine. "You can cage yourself in if you start thinking, 'I've got to copy this or that.' But just knowing what others have done – having the pillars of the character – helped."

Chris Pine wanted a little advice before he signed on to his upcoming film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. And he got it, from none other than Alec Baldwin. "I was doing an animated film with [Alec] and I would see him coming in and out of the voice over booth," the actor told Ryan Seacrest at the Golden Globes Sunday. "I stopped him on the way to get a turkey wrap and asked him for his advice." So, what did the Blue Jasmine actor say? "He was very kind and very gracious, wished me luck, took me by the shoulders and said, 'Do it! Take it! Do it!"

Back when Star Trek hottie Chris Pine worked with Lindsay Lohan in the 2006 film Just My Luck, the actor was stunned by all the craziness.

"It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles," the 33-year-old Star Trek actor told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it's really a distinct moment in someone's life when you see what's really wonderful about what we get to do and what's really dangerous about it."
Pine added, "Hollywood is like living in a weird bubble. A bunch of people take care of you and get you stuff, and you're the center of that little microcosmic world. You start believing that it is real and ...you deserve it."

The duo starred together in Just My Luck, a 2006 comedy about a rich girl becoming cursed with bad luck.
The Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit star recently told The Hollywood Reporter that Lohan's level of fame at the time was comparable to Beatlemania.
"It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles," Pine recalled.
He continued: "It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it's really a distinct moment in someone's life when you see what's really wonderful about what we get to do and what's really dangerous about it."

Nine years ago, Chris Pine was an up-and-coming leading man, while Lindsay Lohan was already one of Hollywood's most in-demand stars. Nearly a decade later, the professional careers of the two stars have swapped, which Pine discussed with The Hollywood Reporter in its Jan. 10 issue. "It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles," the Star Trek hunk, 33, remarked about working with Lohan, 27, on the New Orleans set of their 2006 film, Just My Luck. "It was fascinating to watch, and [...] »
Chris Pine may have been a relative newcomer when he was cast as Lindsay Lohan's love interest in Just My Luck, but he was clearly the more professional actor. After all, it was the redheaded actress' wild ways that led to at least one shutdown on the 2005 set of their romantic comedy—not Pine's. "It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles," Pine says of the media circus surrounding his hard-partying costar, who earned $7.5 million for her role in the film. "It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it's really a distinct moment in someone's life when you see what's really wonderful about what we get to do and what's really dangerous about »
This story first appeared in the Jan. 10 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. On the 2005 set of Just My Luck, two careers collided spectacularly. There was the 18-year-old star, considered the most promising actress of her generation, commanding a $7 million-plus paycheck. And there was the 24-year-old no-name leading man, just happy to be there. Perhaps the romantic comedy's hackneyed plotline about the world's luckiest ingenue (Lindsay Lohan) swapping fortunes with a random hot guy (Chris Pine) came true. While Lohan never again reached such heights and today is trawling for paid
