No 'Desperate Housewives' movie, and more TCA news
Here's what we learned from the final week of the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena...
? Charlie Sheen can act normal when he wants to. Sheen was mobbed by reporters who expected rants about tiger blood but instead found an actor grateful for his upcoming FX sitcom, Anger Management. ”To have my input welcomed is an alien concept for me,” he said in a jab at his previous CBS gig. FX president John Landgraf defended working with Sheen: ”I believe in redemption.”
? Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry says the ABC series’ upcoming finale will be the absolute end of Wisteria Lane. ”I’m never sending these gals to Dubai,” he deadpanned.
? HBO’s forthcoming Game Change likely won’t be on Sarah Palin‘s DVR. The film is sure to rankle supporters of the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate. ”She was so charismatic and a true populist,” said Julianne Moore, who plays the would-be VP. ”But upon further inspection, she didn’t have the experience to lead our country as vice president.”
? Ashton Kutcher has commitment issues. The Two and a Half Men star was willing to shave his beard and cut his locks for this week’s episode, though he hasn’t yet agreed to return to the CBS hit next season. ”I’m interested in coming back,” Kutcher said. ”The show is outperforming the numbers from before I was here. For me, having a show that people want more of, that’ll dictate my decision.” Does he have to tweet it for you? Give him a raise!
