Former Cheers star Ted Danson is stepping in to replace Laurence Fishburne on hit TV drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

The Matrix actor's contract on the series expired at the end of season 11 earlier this year, two years after he was cast to replace series regular William Petersen.

TV bosses have now appointed Danson as the show's chief investigator in a bid to boost ratings, and executive producer Don McGill knew the former Cheers star was perfect for the show as soon as his name was brought up.

He says, "From the moment we all started talking about the role, it was clear he cou...

Watching Me On TV: Reflections About Blacks in Prime Time Past

The Cosby Show
I’m not old, but I am mature. I’m not in the let’s-go-clubbin’-this-Saturday-night set, but I’m still in the coveted demographic that advertisers like. I’m old enough to remember when vampires were scary—not hot. And I do have those wonderful memories of big, boxy television consoles with three major networks and some local stations with really bad programming. Color television shows were a major big deal, so much so that announcers would actually let you know—“The F.B.I.— in color!” That was probably because not a lot of folks had a color TV set. It’s also cool to see how the physical tele...

Will Adrien Brody Be Eaten Alive in 'Predators'?

Predators - Adrien Brody
When people think of action movie stars, one of the last names that comes to mind is Adrien Brody, Academy Award-winner for “The Pianist” and hip-hop enthusiast. After this summer though, that perception or lack of confidence may change. On July 9 Brody will appear in “Predators,” the new chapter in the “Predator” franchise, as Royce the leader of a band of humans who find themselves on the Predators’ home planet.

Brody has had an incredibly diverse career as an actor and has worked with such filmmakers as Roman Polanski, M. Night Shyamalan, Wes Anderson and Peter Jackson. Clearly, Brody c...

Adrien Brody Attempts To Be An Action Star In 'Predators'

Adrian Brody
When you think action star, does Adrien Brody come to mind? Not really. But that's the role he's tackling in the Robert Rodriguez film "Predators," which opens in theaters on Friday, July 9. Also on board: Topher Grace (huh?), Laurence Fishburne and Danny Trejo.

Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in the original movie as the leader of a special forces unit. And he was bad ass. The film was an international box office hit and had a sequel starring Danny Glover. In 2004, "Aliens vs. Predator" came out and made nearly $200 million dollars worldwide.

The plot of the latest incarnation involves a h...

Predators 2010
There are few science fiction horror franchises as popular and well known as the Predator series. It came out only a year after James Cameron's equally well received series Aliens began, and the two franchises inspired dozens of films, TV shows, comic books, and horror novels afterward. Man vs. the wild became man vs. an alien creature, and the predator specifically is one of the most terrifying monsters to ever cross the big screen. Intelligent, powerful, and stealthy, the Predator hunts down humans or aliens alike and killing them with a single minded intensity. decided to t...

Adrien Brody, the unlikely star of the long-awaited monster sequel Predators, came to Austin, TX for the South by Southwest (SXSW) film festival. Austin filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, who produced the film, showed some footage to the film festival fans, and Brody showed up to meet the press.

As surprising as it may be to imagine the thin, lanky actor fighting seven foot tall rasta predators, it might also be a shock that the Oscar-winning star of The Pianist was a die hard Preadtor fan. “When Predator came out in ’88, I was a freshman in high school,” Brody said. “I was with my boys sneaking ...

9/23/2009 12:43pm EDT
As we look forward to the future, we are hopeful that technology and the overall standard of living will continue to improve. Many films set in the distant or even in the more immediate future paint it as a grim place where our dependence on technology has blinded us to our own humanity.

We are reminded that technology yields great power and that great power can corrupt our souls. Films portraying this version of our future are meant to provoke commentary about the ethical dilemmas the characters face and to help steer humanity in a more thoughtful direction.

TV's Best Crime Shows In Transition

Television's best crime show, CSI, enters a new era Thursday night as the first episode of the post-Grissom era. William Petersen had appeared in all but two of the episodes since first airing in 2000. CSI actually got its start on Friday nights, but was moved to Thursdays after Survivor when it started gaining some notice. This was back when Survivor was the hot new sensation, and naturally the viewers stuck around to fall in love with CSI.

The show changed the landscape of crime television. Now you can find a miscellaneous crime drama on every night of the week, including...

There is so much wrong here it's hard to know where to start. Perhaps the mixing of brown plaid with neon green? Or maybe the flyaway bangs paired with shaved skull? Ick.
