Jennifer Garner
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?

7/23/2009 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 has been acting for an entire decade but he's just starting to get his well-deserved fame. It seems you can't open a tabloid without coming across his name and who he is allegedly linked to.

Did he blow her over, is she just not that into him, do we really care?

'Dollhouse' Recap: Spy in the House of Love

4/13/2009 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.
