The West Wing star exchanged vows with The Big Bang Theory producer Rob Cohen at a drive-through chapel two decades ago in Sin City, but they didn't realize the wedding was for real until the TV executive started making plans to marry his new fiancée.

The pair's divorce finally came through on Saturday, shortly before they met up at the New York Comedy Festival as part of a reunion of workers on The Ben Stiller Show - the actor's 1990s comedy sketch ser...

October 23rd, 2007 2:38pm EDT
Nick Swardson - Party

One night, Adam Sandler saw the special and was so impressed by the performance that he phoned him the next day, leading to a partnership that allowed Nick to act...
