<![CDATA[Jennifer Garner Met George Clooney With Head Lice]]> Thu, 02 Oct 2014 08:27:40 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/456485600.jpg

Jennifer Garner told Jimmy Fallon that the first time she met George Clooney she had head lice.

The “Men, Women, and Children” actress said on Wednesday’s episode of “The Tonight Show” that her kids brought home the lice and the family had to put an oily medicine in their hair to get rid of them.

Meanwhile, she attended a party with her husband, Ben Affleck, where she ran into Clooney for the first time. The actress noticed that Clooney was smelling the oil in her hair.

“I was chatting with him and I can see that he smells me, and he’s trying to be polite,” Garner said.

Then, she joked, “People keep asking why were weren’t at George’s wedding. I think he didn’t want lice-y there."

After the interview, Garner and Fallon partnered up for a game of catchphrase against the team of comedian John Mulaney a Questlove of “The Tonight Show” band The Roots. 

Who won? Find out in the video below.

In "My Fair Lady," the Lerner and Loewe musical version of George Bernard Shaw’s "Pygmalion," pompous proper Brit Henry Higgins gives Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle diction lessons — making her repeatedly say (and then sing, of course) "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain."

In "Selfie," the new ABC rom-com sitcom that got off to a promising start Tuesday, modern day marketing whiz Henry Higgs tries to transform self-absorbed social media over-sharer Eliza Dooley into a more analogue, sociable human.

But he doesn't mess much with her speaking voice — that's already been done for him.

Karen Gillan sparks a luminosity in Eliza as she did as Amy Pond in "Doctor Who." Her new show arrives the same week as her fellow "Who" breakout star and Scotland native David Tennant debuts in Fox's "Gracepoint," an America remake of his ongoing British crime drama “Broadchurch.”

In both ventures, though, something got lost in the translation: the actors' voices — or, more specifically, their accents. The two attractive performers have fallen victim to ugly Americanism.

Foreign accents and U.S. primetime TV don’t have a history of mixing well. In the 1950s, Desi Arnaz’ Cuban accent became fodder for jokes on “I Love Lucy.” Both “All in the Family” and “Sanford and Son” were remakes of 1960s British shows deemed unfit for U.S. viewers. For years, PBS, home to “Masterpiece Theater” and “Monty Python,” stood pretty much as the only place with room for voices other than American.

That’s changed as the world — particularly the TV entertainment world — has become more connected, thanks largely to digital technology. “Doctor Who” is a big draw all over, as is “Downton Abbey.”

Tongues are loosening a bit on U.S. network TV. The reimagined Sherlock Holmes of “Elementary” is a Brit. The delightfully quirky NBC sitcom “Welcome to Sweden” features Swedish natives and even occasional subtitles. Catherine Tate, another “Doctor Who” alum, kept her British accent when she joined the American version of “The Office” for much of the final two seasons.

There certainly are times when fine actors from abroad need to adapt their voices to the part — take Irdis Elba and Dominic West in “The Wire,” and, more recently, Stephen Graham’s explosive turn as the mercurial Al Capone on “Boardwalk Empire.” But what was the point of having Hugh Laurie adopt American speech patterns for “House”? His character might have proved even more cutting as a son of Cambridge University.

In the case of “Gracepoint,” perhaps Fox just should have snatched up the second series of “Broadchurch,” a show introduced on these shores by BBC America. As for “Selfie,” making Eliza a UK transplant could have added resonance to her backstory as an outsider who used social media to become what she thought was a glamorous insider.   

Nobody wants to pigeonhole strong actors. But it’s time for more TV executives to give audiences some credit, and learn a lesson from “Pygmalion”/”My Fair Lady”: The way a person speaks is no basis to keep them down.

<![CDATA[Good, "Bad," Hilarious: TV's Best Judges]]> Wed, 01 Oct 2014 16:38:01 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/214*120/NUP_163346_2077_1399674025.JPG

All rise as Kate Walsh takes her place at the bench in television's courtroom.

The "Grey's Anatomy" alum is the latest to don the flowing robes of a judge in her role as unorthodox jurist Rebecca Wright in "Bad Judge," premiering Thursday October 2 on NBC.

Walsh joins a small screen legal landscape awash in honorable characters thanks to court shows (Judges Judy, Joe Brown, Mathis, Pirro), reality series (talent judges Simon Cowell, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy) and crime procedurals such as "Law & Order" (actors Judith Light, Swoosie Kurtz, Carey Lowell, Sam Grey, Victor Truro and Marlo Thomas have all portrayed judges on one or more of the "L&O" franchises).

A rarer occurrence is the sitcom fictional judge. So in honor of "Bad Judge's" debut, here's a case by case look at five TV judges striving for order, and laughs.


Case file: Set predominantly during the late-night shift of a Manhattan criminal court, the sitcom followed the travails of unorthodox Judge Harold T. "Harry" Stone and the circle of legal, criminal and everyday inhabitants involved in the cases that landed on his desk.

Presiding judge: Occasional "Saturday Night Live" player Harry Anderson portrayed Stone: a compassionate jurist whose parents were former mental patients, and who also happened to be an amateur magician. Though young, Stone was a fan of the fashions and music of the 1940s.

The verdict: Laughter ensued from 1984 to 1992 on NBC as audiences returned each week for new judgments from Stone, and to check-in with public defender Christine Sullivan (Markie Post), prosecutor Daniel R. "Dan" Fielding (John Larroquette) and bailiffs Nostradamus "Bull" Shannon (Richard Moll), Selma Hacker (Selma Diamond) and Roz Russell (Marsha Warfield).


Case file: Wild child Rebecca Wright knows how to party, but she also happens to be one of Los Angeles' toughest and most respected county circuit court judges. She's a loose cannon in the courtroom prone to saying exactly what's on her mind and devising creative rulings tailored to the peculiarities of her cases.

Presiding judge: Kate Walsh ("Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice") plays Wright as a tough-as-nails judge whose life outside the courtroom is anything but orderly.

The verdict: The viewing jury gets their first chance to sit in judgment when "Bad Judge" premieres on Thursday, October 2 on NBC. Walsh arrives at the sitcom with an established fan base thanks to her stints on "Grey's" and "Practice," and in the movie "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."


Case files: At one time or another every member of the Simpson clan has been hauled before a Springfield judge. Even Marge once faced a shoplifting charge. And the two characters regularly sitting in judgment are Constance Harm and Roy Snyder.

Presiding judges: Both irregular characters in the Simpsons' oeuvre, Judge Constance Harm and Judge Roy Snyder have polar opposite judging styles. Voiced by Jane Kaczmarek ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Harm is sadistic, unforgiving and quick to hand down harsh sentences — especially when it comes to Bart. Snyder (voiced by Harry Shearer) easily forgives, is easily bribed by Mr. Burns, and easily annoyed by the antics of lawyer Lionel Hutz.

The verdict: Two decades and counting of courtroom laughs and famous catchphrases. Judge Snyder: "Boys will be boys!" Judge Harm: "Don't spit on my cupcake and tell me it's frosting!"


Case file: Set in the small town of Rome, Wisconsin, "Picket Fences" followed the lives of Sheriff Jimmy Brock (Tom Skerritt), town doctor and Brock's wife Jill (Kathy Baker), verbose lawyer Douglas Wambaugh (Fyvush Finkel) and the oft irritated Judge Henry Bone (Ray Walston).

Presiding judge: Judge Bone's personal notions of right and wrong often appeared to shape his rulings. Bone's animosity toward Wambaugh's pontificating became a staple scenario and ongoing gag of the series, with the lawyer's pontificating a hair trigger for the judge's ever-escalating grumpiness.

The verdict: Airing from 1992 to 1996 on CBS, "Picket Fences" dealt with subjects often considered taboo on TV at the time, including homophobia, transsexuality, medical ethics and date rape. Though it occasionally struggled for ratings (perhaps due to its regular Friday night time slot), the series had a devoted fan following who returned for the mix of oddball characters, modern drama and gentle humor. Walston ("My Favorite Martian") won a supporting actor Emmy for his work on the series.


Case file: No, it wasn't an ahead-of-its-time series about a same-sex married couple raising a child. It was a sitcom about teenager Nicole Bradford (Staci Keanan) who, following the death of her mother, goes to live with the father she has never met. Make that two fathers, both of whom were mom's former boyfriends: straight-laced Michael was played by Paul Reiser ("Mad About You"), while Greg Evigan ("B.J. and the Bear") portrayed wacky artist Joey. Family court Judge Margaret W. Wilbur would frequently visit the teenager to check in on her and serve as mentor. Wilbur also owned the building the new family lived in making her their landlady.

Presiding judge: Actress Florence Stanley portrayed Wilbur through the show's run from 1987 to 1990 on NBC. Stanley's Wilbur was sardonic, quick-witted, and withering when testosterone levels grew too high. Before "Dads," Stanley gained widespread fame in 1975 when she was cast as Bernice Fish, wife of Detective Fish (Abe Vigoda), on the hit television series "Barney Miller."

Continuance: "My Two Dads" had a crossover with another NBC show, "Night Court," when Judge Wilbur appeared in the "Night Court" episode "Game Show" in 1989.

Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps was arrested and charged with DUI and other charges in Maryland early Tuesday morning.

Tuesday afternoon, Phelps pleaded for forgiveness on Twitter, writing, "I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility... I am deeply sorry."

Police say Phelps was clocked driving 84 mph in a 45 mph zone on southbound Interstate 395 leaving Baltimore.

An officer then followed Phelps' white 2014 Land Rover through the Fort McHenry Tunnel on northbound Interstate 95, said Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Phelps was speeding and crossing double lines in the tunnel, they said.

The officer stopped Phelps just beyond the tunnel’s toll plaza. Authorities say he appeared to be under the influence and failed a series of field sobriety tests. Phelps was cooperative during the process, they said.

Phelps was arrested around 1:40 a.m., TMZ first reported. He was charged with DUI, excessive speed and crossing double lane lines, and was later released.

The swimmer posted a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, apologizing for the incident. "I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility," he said in part. "I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down."

Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete in history with 22 medals: 18 gold, two silver and two bronze. He won an unprecedented eight gold medals in eight events at the Beijing Games in 2008, and returned to win four more golds at the London Games in 2012.

The swimmer said after the London Games that he was finished with competitive swimming. But he recently returned to the pool, competing in significant championship events this summer. He has not yet confirmed his plans for the Summer Games in Rio in 2016.

Phelps has been charged with DUI previously. In November 2004, he was stopped by state troopers in Salisbury, Maryland, after failing to stop for a stop sign. He was 19 at the time.

In that case, Phelps pleaded guilty to driving while impaired. He was fined $250 and was ordered to serve 18 months probation.

During an interview with Matt Lauer on "Today," Phelps called the event an isolated incident and said he had "let myself down and my family down... I think I let a lot of people in the country down."

Phelps faced further controversy when a photograph surfaced in February 2009 showing him with a water pipe used to smoke tobacco or marijuana.

Phelps publicly apologized and admitted that the image, taken at a student party at the University of South Carolina, was authentic. The brouhaha surrounding the photo resulted in the swimmer losing Kellogg's as a sponsor and a three-month suspension from USA Swimming.

<![CDATA[George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin First Wedding Photo]]> Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:58:25 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/clooney-people-mag.crop.jpg

The first photos have been unveiled from the wedding of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin.

People magazine wrangled the exclusive images and lead the new issue with a stunning cover photo of the newlyweds that also teases "25 exclusive, intimate photos" inside. 

The couple shared many public moments with fans and media outlets both before and after Saturday's star-studded wedding event in Venice, Italy, but this is the first glimpse of the Hollywood actor and human rights lawyer inside the ceremony and party.

Alamuddin, 36, wore a custom Oscar de la Renta French lace wedding gown, hand-embroidered with pearls and diamanté accents featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline and a full circular train, according to People. "He's such an elegant designer and such an elegant man," Alamuddin said of the designer.

The groom wore a Giorgio Armani tuxedo. People also reports that Clooney, 53, wore customized cufflinks from Alamuddin, with "George" inscribed in Arabic.

Being married "feels pretty damn great," Clooney is quoted as saying by the magazine.

"George and Amal radiated love all night," Alamuddin's mother Baria told People. "The wedding was so unbelievably special, it was legendary. These three days — the friends, the families, the atmosphere, everything — will stay with me all the rest of my life."

Vogue magazine also got in on the wedding dress action, posting an image of Alamuddin at her final fitting with de la Renta on Instagram:

"George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” Alamuddin says in an article about the fitting at Vogue.com. Photographer Annie Leibovitz captured the moment.

"Amal and I looked at a lot of evening dresses and wedding dresses together, and we discussed what she liked. That gave me the idea of what she wanted," the designer told Vogue of his inspiration for the dress.

Other guests who traveled to Italy to fete the couple included Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Bono, Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, John Krasinski, Bill Murray and Anna Wintour.

The new issue of People magazine featuring Clooney and Alamuddin's wedding is on newsstands starting Wednesday.

Ben Affleck revealed to Jimmy Fallon that his three kids aren’t the least bit interested in the actor's role as Batman.

Affleck explained on Monday night's episode of “The Tonight Show” that his children have instead taken a liking to a Disney movie.

“If I was doing the sequel to ‘Frozen’, I would be a hero,” Affleck joked.

“My two older daughters could give a s*** about Batman,"  Affleck said. "They love ‘Frozen.’ And the indignity is so great that they now passed that affection on to my two-and-a-half-year old son."

His son’s constant pleas to watch the movie led Affleck on a quest to find shorter versions in an attempt to avoid watching the full picture over and over again.

That is when Affleck discovered Fallon’s “Frozen” musical performance sketch with Idina Menzel, which his son has completely fallen for, and demands that Affleck sing like Fallon. Or as the toddler calls him: “The Man.” 

“He loved it, he goes crazy for it,” Affleck said.

A Mexico City man is in Hogwarts heaven after his collection of "Harry Potter" memorabilia was named the world's largest.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas has spent nearly 15 years hoarding all things related to British author J.K. Rowling's young-adult wizard-fantasy series, which spawned eight blockbuster films.

His collection fills two rooms and counts everything from magic wands and toy figurines to Gryffindor scarves and replica Quidditch brooms.

Guinness World Records officially recognized it Monday as the world No. 1, at 3,097 pieces. The old mark was 807.

Silva Vargas said he began with no intent to amass a huge collection. But soon it was like being under a spell.

He laughingly called his obsession both a blessing and a curse: "My salary, my bonuses ... it all ended up here."
