McDonald has a career that spans film, TV, and stage. His recent credits include an […]Read On »

In THE CRAZY ONES, premiering on CBS Thursday, September 26 at 9 PM, Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar play father/daughter owners of a major advertising agency. Simon Roberts (Williams) comes up with off-the-wall last-minute ideas, such as in the pilot, when he decides that Kelly Clarkson will make a great singing pitch-woman for McDonald’s, even when Clarkson (playing herself) insists on making the song considerably more sultry than necessary to sell Big Macs. It falls to Sydney Roberts (Gellar) to implement Simon’s schemes, whether she thinks there’s genius in her father’s madness, or just more craziness. Gellar probably needs […]Read On »

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

Stars: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles, Kurtwood Smith Writer: Tom Schulman Director: Peter Weir Distributor: Touchstone Home Entertainment Suggested Retail Price: $20.00 DEAD POET’S SOCIETY was a great movie the year it was released in 1989, but it’s also aged incredibly well over the years with its timeless story of non-conformity and free-thinking set at an all boy’s private school circa the 1950s. Robin Williams (in a very under-stated and quite effective performance) plays Professor John Keating. A former student at Welton Academy, he’s now returned as a teacher and hopes to impart the lessons he […]Read On »
