Eric McCormack
A judge overruled an injunction banning Lifetime bosses from airing a film starring Eric McCormack about a real-life murderer.

Incarcerated killer Christopher Porco filed suit against television execs, claiming "Romeo Killer: The Christopher Porco Story" violated his publicity rights.
 
Porco, who was found guilty of killing his father Peter and attempting to murder his mother Joan in 2005, believes the film, starring  McCormack, Matt Barr and Lolita Davidovich, contained a "fictionalized account" of the events leading up to his sentencing.
 
On Tuesday, New York Supreme Court Judge Robert...

Eric McCormack
What's got Dr. Daniel Pierce looking so worried? I asked actor Eric McCormack, who plays the crime-solving doc on TNT's freshman drama ​Perception​, for some clues to the show's season finale, what it's like playing a paranoid schizophrenic, and where he'd like to see Pierce and company go in the forthcoming Season 2.

"I was so excited," he said of playing the two-part season ender. "We shot the whole thing like a big movie so it was intense. It was so good to have a character that has these various disorders, conspiracy theories, and is suffering from this condition but we've o...

Debra Messing showed off her sexy side at the Joyful Heart Foundation gala in New York City yesterday. We love her silver sleeveless blouse.

Greg discusses his role as Chief Engineer Olsen -- the man who had the job before a certain Montgomery Scott -- and what it was like working on another small little film, Titanic.

Showtime's Dexter
There's plenty to watch on network television, but we have long been living in the Golden Age of Cable. Ever since HBO told us, "It's not TV. It's HBO," we've been hooked. Ponying up the money for cable can be difficult, but these channels make it worth the price.

The Veterans:

HBO has lost many of the signature shows that made it a household name. The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Six Feet Under - they were all instrumental in defining HBO as the channel for daring, intelligent and mature programming. But don't write off the channel just yet. While its new series don't quite match the ...
