Larry David had a real life Curb Your Enthusiasm moment when the hapless actor was left trapped inside a garage.

The actor, who plays a constantly exasperated version of himself in the comedy series, attempted to leave a parking lot in Los Angeles on Sunday but failed.

Footage obtained by TMZ.com shows the 64-year-old funnyman struggling to open the parking gate before shouting to an assistant via the intercom, "I can't do it, I can't do this. I've put it in and paid $5."

November 13th, 2011 11:00pm EST
Hung
It's been said that a hero is only as good as their antagonist. On HBO's Hung, that juicy role falls to actor Stephen Amell, who recently sat down with me to dish about the series.

Amell plays Jason, who is the chief competition of Hung's main character, Ray Drecker. He's got a winning smile but a lot more going on behind it. Read on to find out what's in store for his character in season three and what it's like being the allegedly bad guy, as well as what type of role Amell would love to play.

Hung fans should also check out my previous Q&A with Charlie Saxton (Damon Drecker).

Nikita
You can't keep Nikita's Owen down - and the fans are certainly glad for that. Devon Sawa's ex-Guardian has been so popular that tonight marks his fifth appearance on The CW's hit spy series. Before "Falling Ash" airs tonight, Devon came by to chat with me about Owen's popularity and what's ahead for his character.

(You can also check out our previous interview from season one.)

This is your fifth appearance and your first of season two. Not bad for a character intended as a one-off! What do you think is the secret to Owen's popularity?

Ted Danson Gives His Thoughts On Joining The Cast Of 'CSI'

September 20th, 2011 4:00pm EDT
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
There’s no stopping the CSI juggernaut, not even the loss of the lead investigator. When Grissom (William Petersen) left, Langston (Laurence Fishburne) was there to lead the team. Now he’s left and D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) is leading the crime scene investigators of Las Vegas.

We’ve seen Danson get serious recently as Arthur Frobisher in Damages. He’s still most famous as a comedian, in Cheers, Becker and still Curb Your Enthusiasm and Bored to Death. Danson left his Martha’s Vineyard summer home early to get to work on CSI and speak with the Television Critics Association about it thi...

Larry David
Funnyman Larry David has played down his reputation as a multi-millionaire, insisting it's "ridiculous" his fans are "obsessed" with his personal wealth.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star is rumored to have made a fortune from the rights to the hit show, which has been syndicated around the world.

Media commentators often compare him to his famously wealthy Seinfeld co-star Jerry Seinfeld, but David is frustrated with the ongoing gossip about his wealth because "half" of his earnings were handed to his ex-wife Laurie Lennard following their divorce in 2007.

Q&A: 'Love In The Wild' Host Darren McMullen

August 10th, 2011 3:11pm EDT
Love In The Wild
Dating is hard enough, but then to throw nature into the mix seems downright insane. That's the premise of NBC's Love In The Wild. Backstage at America's Got Talent, the show's host, Darren McMullen, talked with me recently about the scary perils of nature and his interest in reality television (including our mutual affection for one show in particular!)

We've seen dating shows before, but this is a particularly weird concept for one.

Oh, I could probably think of a weirder one, but it's good. It seems to work. We have legitimate couples going on, which is more than can be said for a lot ...

Summer 2011 TV Highlights

True Blood
As much as you should be going to the beach, catching a hot concert or spending time with friends at outdoor barbeques this summer, there is also a lot going on indoors too. We’re talking about what’s going on inside on the television. Summer television shows aren’t always about the addicting and sometimes laughable reality programs since stations like TNT and USA have stepped up their game with shows like The Closer and Burn Notice. As much as we were anticipating the return of Mad Men this summer only to be disappointed by the news that the premiere is delayed until 2012, we found a few m...

Paul Reiser Show
Paul Reiser hasn’t been on television in a while. That’s the case in real life, and it’s also the case on Reiser’s new NBC sitcom, “The Paul Reiser Show,” which the actor co-wrote and produced. Like a diet version of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Paul Reiser Show” follows a fictionalized version of Reiser’s life 11 years after the end of his star making role in “Mad About You.” Struggling with his fading celebrity and with a wealth of free time, Reiser spends his days wrestling with his kids’ school projects, hanging out with a disparate group of chuckleheads that he calls his friends, and t...

2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.

With Shutter Island about to open, cineasts are holding their collective breath wondering if the latest film from legendary director Martin Scorsese will add to his legacy or continue what some perceive as a decline from the Robert De Niro era to the Leonardo DiCaprio years. Take a look back at the best and worst of Scorsese's four-decades-plus career:

THE WORST

THE COLOR OF MONEY (1986)

Paul Newman and Tom Cruise star in this superfluous sequel to the 1961 pool hall classic, The Hustler. Cruise is in full-on cocky mode (whether that's good or bad is up to you), while Newman seems to...

TV Year End Recap
Ah, the year has come to an end once more. Well, actually the decade has come to an end. But enough of all that end-of-the-decade nonsense. We still have a year in TV to discuss. A year that finally saw the networks once again deliver us some new shows worth watching, a year when several cable dramas took a massive step forward. A year when Paula Abdul wasn't the worst "Idol" Judge!

Yes, it was a strange year on the small screen, but a good one all the same. Here's the best, and some of the worst, of TV 2009.

Great Performances:

'Mad Men,' 'Modern Family' Among Year's Best TV

December 7th, 2009 1:15pm EST
Modern Family
NEW YORK (AP) - The biggest shows of 2009 couldn't always be contained by the TV screen. There were breakout tabloid scandals with Jon and Kate Gosselin. A wannabe reality TV star crashed the White House. David Letterman's hanky-panky seized headlines. Oprah Winfrey grabbed the nation's attention as she began her long goodbye. This was TV run amok.

But in 2009 other shows proved outstanding on more manageable terms: as excellent TV shows. They include:

- "Breaking Bad" (FX). Here's the cruelest premise on series TV: a high-school teacher with terminal cancer gets into the crystal-meth...

Tomorrow evening I will have the opportunity to see Jason Reitman's new travel comedy "Up in the Air" starring George Clooney. I have read a number of early favorable reviews of the film, and I really like Reitman's movies, so I'm fairly excited.

In addition to "Up in the Air" films opening this week include "Armored," "Brothers," "Everybody's Fine," "Serious Moonlight," and "Transylmania."

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Recap: 'Seinfeld'

November 23rd, 2009 8:13am EST
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Much like the finale of that other show, this season's ending of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" was a bit underwhelming.

Yes, it was funny with many of the usual "Curb" hijinks to keep the show moving nicely (the respect for wood, the continual doing of favors, and the "having said that") but for the anticipation of more than six months approaching this moment, it, once again, just couldn't quite live up to the hype.

There were two aspects to this episode - the "Seinfeld" show and the "Curb" show. With "Curb" we got the usual interconnected storylines. The first featured Larry and the studi...
