Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Flatliners'
Having recently done an interview with William Baldwin I remembered one of my favorite of his films and began asking people’s thoughts on it. Most hadn’t heard of it and thus this weeks life and death selection – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick. Today’s tale is one with a unique premise with an equally unique cast. It’s a story about some students who are dying to find out what comes after life ends and are willing to put their money where their mouth is. Today is a good day to die via…."Flatliners!"

Nelson Wright is a gifted and driven medical student who has one desire – to fi...

'Hawaii Five-0' Recap: 'Ma'ema'e' (2.05)

10/18/2011 2:03am EDT
Hawaii Five-O
The number-one question I've heard all season when it comes to Hawaii Five-0 has been, "What's happening with Kono?" Well, tonight we finally got that train leaving the station. Would that be enough?

When a beloved college volleyball coach (Joe Toro) gets killed in his own locker room, Five-0 is on the case. The coach was living in the guest house of an affluent couple, Karl and Trisha Joyner (Rob Duval and Meredith Monroe), which gives Danny room to gripe about being underpaid and over-shot at. (This would have been a better cargument if it had happened last season, don't you thin...

William Baldwin
Actor Billy Baldwin held back tears of pride during a TV interview on Tuesday night after his wife Chynna Phillips was voted off Dancing With The Stars.

The singer was among the favorites to win the contest outright when the show began and joked she had made her husband promise to have a vasectomy if she won the dance floor challenge.

However, Phillips' run on the program ended on Tuesday and her shock exit caught Baldwin off guard.

Speaking to TV show Access Hollywood minutes after the elimination, he said, "I'm so proud of Chynna."

'Hawaii Five-O' Review: 'Kame'e' (2.03)

Hawaii Five-O
Thanks to this week's Hawaii Five-O, I've found another reason to dislike camping: you just might find a corpse in the tent. Not cool, show. Not cool at all.

Steve and Commander White (Terry O'Quinn) - who's put in for a transfer to Pearl Harbor - have their bonding session broken up by this development - the body is that of a SEAL named Clay Garcia. Max tells Steve that the cause of death was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but White and Garcia's wife Marissa (Sarah Roemer) aren't so sure. Looking over the evidence again (after Steve needles him into doing so), Max declares that G...

Chynna Phillips
William Baldwin pulled some strings to get his wife Chynna Phillips on the "Dancing With The Stars" dance floor because he thought the hit show would help revitalize her singing career.

The actor thought a spot on the popular program might benefit Phillips - so he contacted the TV bosses to sell them on the idea.

Singer Chynna explains, "Billy said, 'Chynna, why aren't you on Dancing With the Stars...? And I was like, 'Alright, well if you can get me on it, I'll do it.' And he made a few phone calls, and the next thing you know, I was on it. and I was like, 'Ah, now I have to do it.'"

Actress Mackenzie Phillips is adamant her shocking expose about her incestuous relationship with musician father John Phillips is not to blame for her half sister Chynna's anxiety issues.

The star shocked fans when she released her book "High on Arrival" last year, which revealed she had a decade long sexual relationship with her father, founder of The Mamas & the Papas, which began when he raped her on the night she wed Jeff Sessler.

After pledging her support for her sibling, Chynna Phillips entered rehab in February, staying for two weeks to deal with "anxiety" problems. Upon leaving...

Singer/songwriter Chynna Phillips filed for divorce from her actor husband Billy Baldwin on Friday - only to withdraw the petition two days later. The former Wilson Phillips star ordered her lawyers to file divorce papers on the day she was released from a rehab centre following two weeks of treatment for "anxiety issues."

However on Sunday, Phillips requested that her legal team withdraw the bid after realizing she wanted to work on saving her 15-year marriage to the Gossip Girl star, according to the New York Post.

A source tells the publication's gossip column PageSix, "Chynna has gon...

Alec Baldwin had a back-up career planned if he didn't find success acting - he wanted to be a lawyer. The 30 Rock star, who will host the Academy Awards on Sunday night, spoke to a room of aspiring attorneys at New York's Fordham Law School on Wednesday night.

Revealing his doubts about the profession, he explained: "I didn't know if I wanted to join a field that was becoming as crowded and choked as law was."

The show was canceled in the spring, but the network was kind enough to burn off the remaining episodes, as it has already done this summer with the dearly departed Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone.

Movie Review: 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
When watching a trailer for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the sound bite "from the people who brought you 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up" is played. They've gotten you on a technicality. Forgetting Sarah Marshall has some producers and cast members in common with the previous movies, but is the brain child of actor Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) who wrote the script for this predictable yet enjoyable romantic comedy.

The movie begins with Sarah Mashall (Kristen Bell), a television actress in a CSI type show complete with Billy Baldwin doing his best David Caruso, breaking up with ...
