'Happy Endings' cast happy to push the envelope

Elisha Cuthbert will never forget the time she was tased.

The actress, best known for "24," had that memorable moment (or at least her character, Alex, did) on ABC's comedy "Happy Endings" last season. Cuthbert told CNN that was her favorite moment that has aired on the show so far (but look out for the upcoming Halloween episode, for another one).

“I’m just in a place where I’m just ready to give it my all," she said. "So when the writers come up to me and say, ‘We want to tase you next week,’ I say, ‘Bring it! Let’s do it!’"

Penny Marshall penning a memoir

According to the Hollywood Reporter, actress and director Penny Marshall is working on bringing her inspiring life story to the masses.

"I have had many lives (not in the Shirley MacLaine sense) and you will hear about them all ... Just don't expect any recipes ... I don't cook," the 68-year-old Hollywood veteran says of her upcoming memoir.

Marshall says the book will cover her childhood, her relationship with brother Garry Marshall (the producer), moving to Hollywood as a single mom, her time on “Laverne & Shirley,” becoming a director and her 2009 battle with cancer.

'Parenthood': A new arrival, plus the return of Seth

In this week's episode of "Parenthood," Max was having a hard time dealing with his punishment for fighting with Jabbar.

He has to spend a week on lunch detention, which means he's supposed to eat in a classroom away from the other students. Kristina gets permission to have a family member sit with him, and she asks Amber. This is both to help him work on the apology he has to write and so he has someone to make him feel comfortable.

In reality, it's Amber's who needs someone to make her feel comfortable.

Lifetime planning all-black 'Steel Magnolias' remake

Classic chick flick “Steel Magnolias” is getting a remake with an all-black cast, courtesy of Lifetime. Deadline reports that the network is developing an original movie based on the hit film.

Like the 1989 movie (which was based on a stage play), Lifetime’s new version will revolve around a close group of women in Louisiana.

The original featured an all-star cast: Dolly Parton, Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Darryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis. The TV movie’s producers want a similarly star-studded assemblage of black actresses for their new Southern drama.
