The Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto bills itself as being "for the curious," and I certainly was.
Dear Ms. Huston: I saw you on Smash last night and I just wanted to send you a quick note that says, "You don't have to do this."
Presented without commentary, the most absurd, comical, self-serious and/or humorless moments from the pilot episode of "Smash."
Who knew that when actress Michelle Williams first appeared as the bad girl in Dawson's Creek, she would have the uncanny good sense to take on roles ...
She's landed a role in Smash, which is about -- if you haven't seen the boob-tube promos plugging its Feb. 6 kick-off the day after the Super Bowl XLVI kick-off -- a group of B'way vets and newbies readying a tuner based on Marilyn Monroe's life.
Joyful Noise, a new movie musical starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, boasts a dynamite soundtrack and an extremely appealing cast.
As we kick off Oscar month tomorrow, we also honor the birthday of Clark Gable, who picked up a statuette at the seventh Academy Awards ceremony in 1935.

The Playboy pictorial comes off uninspired -- like we have all seen it before, even though we knew we were seeing a tribute. If Lindsay wants to be remembered as a sex symbol, she must embrace her own sex appeal and stop trying to recapture Marilyn's.
I lean in and whisper, "I did Vanessa Redgrave's hair for your amazing headshots in Vogue 1968." He looks at me. I smile and eagerly wait for a response. It is obvious he has no recollection of me, even as he recalls the shoot.
Today I will be participating in a live webcast Q&A from Sweden where I am currently on set at Wallander Studios. The event will take place TODAY, Thursday, December 8th at 2:00 PM EST, so please tune in then.
