USA
The first scene opens with Annie Walker – a C.I.A. newbie that is hooked up to a polygraph machine and is being grilled by an examiner who asks her questions about her career, her relationships and her sex life.

Instantly, one is inclined to believe that this is a C.I.A. driven series that has a dash of sexuality and witty dialogue weaved into it. And who best to play the lead part than Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly)?

The show is titled "Covert Affairs" and it is USA’s newest addition to their drama series roster. It’s got everything from mystery and humor to car chases and fight scenes.

For some actors, it is hard to make the crucial transition into film as a television star. Especially if you are typecast as a certain character and most people can't think of you as anyone else (for example, Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Friends). Television actors put their careers on the line when they leave their steady jobs to branch out into the film world, and they either make it or they don't. Here are the top television stars who managed to hold their own in the film world.

If Celebrities Were Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt, What Flavors Would They Be?

July 23rd, 2009 10:26am EDT
Katy Perry
Hollywood celebrities have a craving for frozen yogurt. That's right - they are putting the Red Bull aside (but not too far aside) for some fro-yo. Not just any fro-yo either. Celebrities are being Pinkberried.

If you do not know what Pinkberry Swirly Goodness is, then here's a little history. It is the brainchild of co-founders Shelly Hwang, a restaurateur, and Young Lee, a designer with an architectural background. Their love for frozen treats is what brought to life the premium frozen yogurt, and they opened their first store in West Hollywood in January 2005.

Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper has been acting for an entire decade but he's just starting to get his well-deserved fame.

'Dollhouse' Recap: Spy in the House of Love

April 13th, 2009 9:50am EDT
Dollhouse
Since "Dollhouse" has only been approved for thirteen episodes (an extra one will be on the DVD), it is nearing the end of this season and perhaps the end of the show itself. Time tells on that, but you'd best get your fill of the Actives now. Last week's episode "Spy in the House of Love" continues the excellent writing and acting that has brought this show up to a new level. It brings new layers to Echo, Adelle, and makes Ballard face a harsh truth. If only they started the show out this good, and on a different night, we could all be preparing for a second season.

A Look At All The Actors Who Have Played 007

November 13th, 2008 10:56am EST
Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.

When last we left everyone's favorite heartless lawyer turned defender of the defenseless, he had just undergone an operation to remove a dangerous aneurysm from his brain. It wasn't clear at the time whether Eli's (Jonny Lee Miller) visions also would disappear once the aneurysm was gone, as that whole "Lostish" science vs. faith argument was a major component of the show's first season. In the end, Eli hoped that with the aneurysm out of his brain, his visions would cease, and he could go back to living a normal live.

Whether or not he could go back to a normal way of life may have...
