Dr. Vegas (2004–2005)
Amy Adams explained how changing her hair color affected her career during a New York Times-hosted TimesTalks event on Wednesday.
"Based on roles that I was getting, called in for, people were responding to certain types of characters with me as a blonde and the minute I went red, it was quirky and fun instead of flirtatious and dumb," the 42-year-old actress revealed to the audience at New York City's Merkin Concert Hall.

The two-time Golden Globe winner went from blonde to a red-head for the short-lived 2004 TV drama, Dr. Vegas, starring Rob Lowe.
"It was great, I liked that. But in all seriousness, it's just hair color," Adams pointed out. "It was really fascinating to see just one element of yourself change people’s perception
The actress spoke at the New York Times-hosted TimesTalk event on Wednesday, where she revealed that changing her hair color from strawberry blonde to red dramatically influenced her chances of getting cast in films.
“Based on roles that I was getting, called in for, people were responding to certain types of characters with me as a blonde and the minute I went red, it was quirky and fun instead of flirtatious and dumb,” Adams, 42, revealed.

The actor is the latest victim of a Comedy Central Roast, joining an exclusive club that includes Justin Bieber, Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen.
From his infamous sex tape with an underage girl to his many failed television series and film bombs, nothing from Lowe's past was off-limit for the roasters, which included Peyton Manning, Jewel, Karate Kid actor Ralph Macchio,Pete Davidson and roastmaster David Spade.
The roast doesn't air until Monday on Comedy Central, but here are some of the event's best jokes to look forward to on the big night.
Rob Lowe is joining CBS’ retooled Code Black as the medical drama’s new co-lead, TVLine has learned. The actor, fresh off his one-season run on Fox’s The Grinder, will play Colonel Ethan Willis, a doctor in the U.S. Military’s prestigious Combat Casualty Care research program who has been pulled out of a combat hospital in Afghanistan and embedded at Angels Memorial to teach what the military has learned about combat medicine. His aggressive, rule-breaking style is greeted enthusiastically by Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden), but not by all the other doctors.

His reps confirm that Lowe is leaving the show later this season because he isn't being used enough. Every time I hear that as the reason why someone is leaving a show I think of the line Catherine said on NewsRadio after a magazine review said she wasn't being used enough. Dave said that he'd "find more ways to use you" and Catherine responded "uh huh. I've heard that noise before." Lowe plays Senator Robert McAllister on the show and he's married to Calista Flockhart's character Kitty.
Lowe left a hit TV show once before. He quit The West Wing in the middle of the fourth season, pretty much for the same reason. ABC would like to keep him around and maybe give him his own show. That's a great idea. As long as it's not a rejuvenated Dr. Vegas.
How was he?
Yet again, pretty amazing. It seems as if he elevated the entire production to another level.
When the show first started and Neil came out singing, I have to be honest, I really didn’t enjoy it. I thought that while Neil has an amazing voice, the song just wasn’t anything great. Especially when compared to everything else that would happen during the course of the night.
Still, I didn’t give up hope. I love Neil Patrick Harris (Nph) and knew that ultimately he would do a great job. His background in acting, magic and Broadway created this perfect Doogie Howser showman. He didn’t disappoint. His jokes were great. His delivery was casual, but cool. I honestly believe that everyone in attendance thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
