Annie Potts is 'hostess with the mostest' on new comedy 'Gcb' [Video]

Annie Potts is 'hostess with the mostest' on new comedy 'Gcb' [Video]
Gigi Stopper is the fiesty, opinionated, widowed Texas dame who enjoys a stiff drink as much as she loves church. Annie Potts, who portrays Gigi on the freshman ABC dramedy "Gcb," calls her "the hostess with the mostest ...belle of the ball ... Auntie Mame." Potts has been a steady presence on television for the past quarter century with regular series roles on "Love and War" (Emmy nod in 1994), "Dangerous Minds," "Any Day Now" (SAG bids in 1999 and 2000), and most famously "Designing Women." She co-starred with Dixie Carter on that long-running CBS comedy and is now using some of her late friend's traits on "Gcb." In a video chat with senior editors Rob Licuria and Chris Beachum, Potts said, "Because I knew her so well, this is very much in character for her. She threw fabulous parties, and she had that kind of ebullience that I've tried to capture and use for Gigi.

Yet Another 'Snow White' Theatrical Film: 'Order Of Seven'

Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) is now a new New Snow White in a new New Snow White adaptation that isn't Mirror Mirror or Snow White and the Huntsman.

This time it's called Order of Seven and involves Kung Fu and is set in Hong Kong in the 19th century! Ronan plays British gal Olivia Sinclair, and she somehow becomes involved with some crusty old warriors (seven of them) who have become outlaws in a world that no longer values their skills. There's an evil empress, too, who they have to defeat.

Someone named Michael Gracey will be directing it this fall 2012.

Now, I ask you, (A) isn't putting poor Ronan in action flick after action flick kinda typecasting her (she's in the upcoming fantasy-action film Justin and the Knights of Valour and stars in the Stephanie Meyer fantasy action project The Host as well as the girl-who-is-forced-to-kick-ass-fighting in How I Live Now (I mean,

Henry Cavill and Kevin Costner on the Man of Steel Set Images

New batch of images from Warner Bros.’ Superman reboot, “Man of Steel”. I’m still going under the assumption that sooner or later they’ll tack on “Superman” to the title. Any day now… Potential Spoilers Below. On the set, Henry Cavill shows up as Superman, full suit and cape, and makes a visit to a familiar looking house. His old homestead, perhaps? Kevin Costner, playing Superman’s Earth dad, is there to greet him. Cavill and Costner co-stars with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, along with Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix and Laurence Fishburne. Zack Snyder directs the film for a June 14, 2013 release. Pics via ZonCom / SuperheroHype

Against The Wall Review – TV – Lifetime

Photo by: Ben Mark Holzberg/Lifetime

The shows you get out of Lifetime can be pretty hit or miss. That's generally a good thing as far as I'm concerned. You either love Drop Dead Diva, or you hate it, and I for one appreciate the "not for everyone" approach to show design. It's a recipe that gets trickier when you're venturing out into the massively overpopulated world of crime shows though, and Lifetime's new efforts, The Protector and Against the Wall, are faced with a tough road with genre norms butting heads against network image.

Shows focusing on cops and/or crime aren't well-suited to flights of fancy, or niche shtick, like several of Lifetime's other working models, and when people think Lifetime, a network that's going to suck in crime show fans is not exactly what leaps to mind.

I'm still not convinced by Lifetime's effort at balancing things with The Protector.

'True Blood' Star Sam Trammell Becomes a Father of Twin Boys

"True Blood" star Sam Trammell has officially become a father, if Life & Style can be trusted. Accordingly, the 40-year-old actor, who plays Sam Merlotte on the HBO hit series, and his girlfriend of eight years, Missy Yager, have welcomed their twin boys on Tuesday, August 9.

Speaking of Sam and Missy's reaction about their first sons' birth, a source spilled, "The couple is very happy that everything went smoothly." Though so, details about the newborns, including their weight upon arrival and names, have yet to be disclosed.

Sam has been together with Missy, who had roles on "Boston Public" and "Mad Men", after meeting each other while performing on Broadway in New York City. The two announced they were expecting back in early March. His representative said at the time, "The couple is thrilled and excited."

Morning Meme: Chris Evans' Tight Shirt Meets Nick Fury, Paul Rudd's "Idiot Brother," and Max Adler Talks Karofksy's Return

The big news seems to be that Simon Cowell has picked his X-Factor: USA judges (even if he hasn’t signed contracts with them yet). He wants Paula Abdul back at his side, along with Cheryl Cole. I know Cheryl is big in the UK, but most Americans know nothing about her.

While James Loney was held captive for 118 days in Iraq, his family hid the fact he was gay to protect his life. Now he has a book out, and is talking about it for the first time.

From the files of heartwarming stories about politicians, in Michigan, State Senator Bruce Caswell wants to pass a law that clothing vouchers for foster kids can only be used in second-hand stores like the Salvation Army. Because nothing helps a kid fit in at school like a Bush/Quayle sweatshirt.

Blu-Ray Review: Timeless ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ Bursts With Life

Chicago – Norman Jewison’s 1971 adaptation of the Broadway smash “Fiddler on the Roof” offers a textbook example of the best possible way to make a musical for the big screen. It came out at a time when movie musicals were quickly becoming a dying art form, and yet Jewison somehow managed to avoid all the mistakes that marred so many other filmmakers.

His first excellent decision was to avoid casting any big names. Topol was a 35-year-old actor who first played the main role of Tevye in a 1967 West End production. In the massive array of extras contained on this sensational 40th anniversary Blu-Ray edition, Jewison claims that he utilized clipped fragments of his own graying hair to age his preferred leading man. Yet the director’s efforts were obviously not in vain. Topol turned out to be such an indelible choice that it’s practically impossible to think of anyone else in the role.

DVD Playhouse--April 2011

DVD Playhouse—April 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Hereafter (Warner Bros.) Clint Eastwood’s spiritual thriller follows a trio of characters whose seemingly disparate paths converge: Matt Damon as a blue collar Joe who tries to fight against his psychic powers that see “the other side,” Cecile de France as a journalist who somehow survives the tsunami that crushed Indonesia, and a London schoolboy (Frankie and George McLaren) who seeks answers after losing his twin brother. Like all of Eastwood’s films, the narrative construction is tight as a drum, with solid work by all involved. That said, “solid” would have to be the operative word to describe the proceedings here, as well as “unremarkable” and “uninvolving” on an emotional level. Perhaps we expect too much when we see Clint’s name on a film these days, but that’s the flip side of being one of the best. Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

Charlie Sheen on 'The Dan Patrick Show': 'I've never been high on the set'

Charlie Sheen on 'The Dan Patrick Show': 'I've never been high on the set'
Charlie Sheen returned to DirecTV’s The Dan Patrick Show this morning to address his on-set behavior and whether he’ll return for the eighth season of Two and A Half Men. “Oh God, yeah!” He told Patrick over the phone. “Because I have a two-year deal. I’m a man of my word.”

Sheen said he’s never been under the influence while shooting Men over the last seven seasons. “The shape I was showing up in was epic, was beyond comprehension. [I’ve] never been drunk, never been high on the set once. But, I would show up not having slept much.

Abrams’ Super Secret New Film Lands First Cast

We still may know little to nothing about J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8,” but, odds are, Kyle Chandler and Elle Fanning are in the loop. What makes them so special? According to reports, they’re the very first to be cast in the film. Any day now they’ll have to pack their bags and head to Weirton, West Virginia where the supposed three-month shoot is set to begin sometime before the end of the month. It should come as no surprise that there are zero details concerning their characters, and we don’t expect any forthcoming any time soon, either.

Motown Rules as Friars Toast Smokey Robinson

By Roger Friedman

hollywoodnews.com: A great New York night: the Friars Club took over the Waldorf Astoria main ballroom and toasted Motown’s Smokey Robinson and Steiner Studios founder David Steiner.

Steiner probably drew the big donor crowd, which was fine. He’s a lovely guy. But it was Smokey who brought the music. The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, a glamorous and stunning 66 years young, paid tribute by bringing the house down with “I Am Changing” from Dreamgirls, Norah Jones’s “Don’t Know Why,” and invited the audience on stage for a singalong on “Stop! In the Name of Love.”

The Temptations–all new members along with founder Otis Williams–performed songs Smokey wrote for the group during their heyday including (my all time favorite) “Since I Lost My Baby.” Paul Shaffer described Robinson’s “My Girl” as the greatest pop composition ever from the rock era. Well, it
