It's been 19 long months since Jack Bauer's most recent (but not last – a movie is on the way!) mission on "24."
However, fans of Kiefer Sutherland will be getting a taste of his new Fox series, "Touch" (from the creator of "Heroes") on Wednesday. But instead of playing an extraordinary CTU agent, he has an extraordinary son.
"In the beginning of the story, we discover [Sutherland's character] Martin, who has a son named Jake, who in the course of our story we realize has been misdiagnosed with severe autism and in fact is actually just a truly, truly evolved human being that is years and years beyond where my character is and our society is at," the actor explained to reporters on Monday.
Today's news you might've missed:
Cynthia Nixon's sexuality has become quite the hot topic.
In an interview with the New York Times magazine about her role in the Broadway revival of "Wit," Nixon recalled giving an "empowerment speech" to a gay audience in which she said, "I've been straight and I've been gay, and gay is better."
(The 45-year-old actress is currently set to wed partner Christine Marinoni, who gave birth to the couple's son close to a year ago. The two are also raising Nixon's two children from her previous relationship with Danny Mozes.)
The Sundance Film Festival is all about discovering new talent… like young actor Kyle Catlett. At nine years of age, he may be the youngest kid with a film at Sundance, a short called “The Fort."
When we bumped into Kyle in the hotel where many of the CNN staff were staying in Park City, it quickly became clear he is no ordinary nine-year-old.
Not only is he an actor with TV shows to his credit (“Unforgettable,” “Pan Am”), TV commercials (Geico and AT&T), but he’s a budding polyglot. He speaks Chinese - fluently. And Russian - fluently.
Charlie Sheen's FX series "Anger Management" is moving full steam ahead, and the actor has told "Access Hollywood" that one actress in particular is standing out to play opposite him in the sitcom.
"Selma Blair is a strong front-runner," Sheen said. "She's a very special lady and is as pretty as the day is long and has never really had an opportunity to do something where she can shine, because off camera she is hilarious."
Blair has been name-checked as one of the two actresses testing for the lead female role in the series, which is adapted from the 2003 movie of the same name.
Editor's Note: As an actor, Ken Davitian has appeared in several films, including "Get Smart" and "Borat." He has a bit role in the Academy Award nominated film "The Artist," which is up for best picture, among other awards. He is the author of this guest blog for Marquee.
I was always a big, big fan of black-and-white movies.
I’m mostly an admirer of the acting during that era of cinema, as it was so expressive. Today, most young filmmakers use black-and-white to be more artistic, but in the 1920s and ‘30s it was a common style. The filmmakers just didn’t have color yet, and they had to rely on the performers to portray a room full of color. FULL POST
