John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years

1/8/2015 9:41am EST
John Travolta Returns To TV After 40 Years In 'American Crime St
Way, way (way) back in the day, John Travolta was known as a TV actor, and not a film one. Travolta was Vinnie Barbarino on the hit series "Welcome Back, Kotter."

Then, nothing for 40 years (barring a couple of minor cameos).

But now, Travolta's returning to the small screen. The former Barbarino will be starring in FX's upcoming true crime series, "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson."

Travolta will play Robert Shapiro, Simpson's attorney, in the series, itself a spin-off of FX's "American Horror Story." Like "Horror," "Crime" will be an anthology series- that is, each sea...

The actress donned a wrinkled button-down shirt paired with a Giambattista Valli pink and red multi-layered skirt. Her platinum blonde hair and tattoos were on full display.

Surprisingly, "Homeland" star Claire Danes also made our l...

Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

What To Watch In March? Spotlight On Mid-Season Shows

3/4/2009 9:37am EST
Once upon a time in a magical land called Hollywood, harried and somewhat unkempt writers bit their nails down to the quick awaiting news on if their pilots would receive full season orders, be given solid "Nos," or worse: be relegated to the limbo that is "mid-season replacement" territory.

Such shows aren't guaranteed to air at all, particularly if the initial fall line-up (the shows that network executives felt had the most potential) succeeds. And if mid-season shows do get a shot after premature cancellations, there is no guarantee they will find an audience, considering so many ...
