What a great story about Eddie Murphy! I feel like I grew up with him, from his days on SNL to my children now watching him in Daddy Day Care (not one of his best). I truly enjoyed reading about his struggle to come to terms with the press and his place in the spotlight.
Interesting article about Eddie Murphy, but eight pages and the cover on someone who won’t be interviewed? Save the space for someone who’s willing to reveal a bit of their own story.
In one short article (Spotlight), Katharine McPhee managed to alienate fans of Celine Dion (”she’s not really what you hear”), Justin Timberlake (”cheesy boy band”), and Ruben Studdard (”I never bought [his] records”). I liked her on American Idol, but who knew she was so self-centered?
You left out the worst ”paycheck role” offender: Oscar winner Jon Voight in Anaconda, Karate Dog, and Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2.
Friday Night Lights is criminally overlooked (”Friday Night Fights”). It fills the hole in my heart that Everwood did. Here’s hoping for a touchdown in season 2!
Gabriel García Márquez’s Love in the Time of Cholera is set in a fictional Caribbean seaport (Spotlight). Rules of Engagement is on CBS (#920, Television). Darren Star is not involved with NBC’s Lipstick Jungle; Eileen Heisler, DeAnn Heline, and Candace Bushnell are the exec producers (#920, News & Notes).
OBSESSIVE FAN OF THE WEEK!
EW’s recent skewering of Timothy Dalton’s James Bond movies left Patricia Georgini of Norwood, Pa., shaken and plenty stirred. ”It just chaps my lips when others rag on Mr. Dalton’s performances,” Patricia complains. Still, after praising the nuances of his acting, she tries a direct appeal: ”He was (is) a sexy son of a gun, you must admit!” Fine. We admit we like actors of his caliber. Get it? Son of a gun…caliber?
