This week on the Internet

This week on the Internet–Jack from ”Will and Grace” gets his own website, and music execs venture online

Posted on

Jackpot
Tired of watching Grace space out and Will whine? The team behind the sitcom Will & Grace is offering comic support online. NBC recently launched a site devoted to ebullient, openly gay secondary character Jack (http://www.justjack.com), where you’ll find thoroughly unconvincing documentation of Jack’s marriage to maid Rosario, a peek into his flighty psyche, and, coming up, a tribute to Megan Mullally’s wacked-out Karen. Sean Hayes, who plays Jack, has no involvement in the site — though his face is all over it — and refuses to comment. Perhaps he considers it a character-building experience.

Extension Chords
The emigration of established entertainment execs to e-ventures continues. Danny Goldberg, CEO of indie Artemis Records (and ex-CEO of both Mercury’s and Warner Bros.’ labels), recently helped launch ArtistEnt (http://www.artistent.com), which gives such acts as Sheryl Crow, Sugar Ray, and Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland a venue to showcase their creativity. Weiland, for one, plans to display his jail-time drawings. ”You can do anything you want,” he says, ”probably just short of…dressing up in women’s clothing.” Good thing David Bowie already has his own site.
