What would you do if you accidentally abandoned your spouse at a highway rest stop? For Jeff Daniels, the answer is beg for forgiveness -- and then sheepishly recount the incident decades later on national television.
Daniels told his tale on "The Tonight Show" Monday night after some prodding from host Jay Leno, who said another actor related the story to him. Daniels confirmed that the story was indeed true, and said the incident occurred years ago during a family trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
Daniels was driving a rental Rv and was extremely tense -- "I'm driving a building," he said -- and pulled over into a rest stop in Pennsylvania to take a breather. After a short, less-than-restful stop, he piled everyone back into the Rv and took off.

The dog days of August are almost over, which means blockbusters are taking a backseat to all those lovely prestige pictures the studios trot out when the leaves change and Meryl Streep gets her thirst for gold like the Oscar vampire she is.

Fan favs like Thor (as in "The Mighty"), Ron Burgundy, Katniss Everdeen, Jack Ryan and Machete chop their way back to the big screen with much fanfare, but this time of year is all about the Oscar bait — a Golden Globe simply won't do.

“The whole thing is irredeemably dreadful” cries the Guardian. “It’s a shamelessly broad, deliberately lowest-common-denominator sitcom” it continues, barely unable to contain their vitriolic anger. “It should be thrown on a pile of dung and set ablaze with a thousand gypsy women dancing and singing folk songs of yore around it” it doesn’t add. But it should. Then again that’s probably why I don’t write for the Guardian. And what is the target of this focused fury and bile?
I do think it’s pretty funny that we live in a society where unbridled anger can be unleashed so masterfully at a mass market sitcom. But it is anger from a place of regret at what this once dynamic comic has become. This man who was once the staple of 80’s political satire is now reduced to BBC »
