CELEBRITY EXTRA Q&A
Here is an example of one of my columns:
Q: I was happy to read in your column that Melora Hardin would be back as Jan Levinson next season on The Office. In the meantime, what else can I see her in? — Renee F., via e-mail
A: Melora has been hard at work all year on various movies and projects, however, the one that is perhaps closest to her heart is the independent movie, You. The movie spans 21 years, bouncing around in time, creating a kind of family quilt that wraps around our main character, Rawdon, as he struggles to overcome the grief of losing his soul mate, Miranda, and raise their daughter, Quincey, alone. It was directed by and stars Melora, along with Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives), Joely Fisher (’Til Death) and Gildart Jackson (Charmed and General Hospital). For now, You can be seen exclusively on the Internet by downloading it from iTunes, Amazon or the movie’s Web site, YouTheFilm.com.
Q: Will NBC’s Medium be back next year? I absolutely love this show. — Genie H., via e-mail
A: Apparently CBS feels the same way. NBC decided not to renew the paranormal drama, and CBS was quick to scoop it up. And you won’t have to wait until January for new episodes, as was its schedule with NBC. Medium will begin airing on CBS this fall.
Q: Now that Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles has been cancelled, is it possible that Brian Austin Green could return to 90210? — Pamela S., White Plains, N.Y.
A: While it does seem logical — since on-screen wife Tori Spelling has already guest-starred for a few episodes, and it would excite many 90210 fans — it looks as if Brian has another offer on his plate. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brian is in negotiations to join another CW show, One Tree Hill. The character he would play is Clayton, a brash sports agent who represents James Lafferty’s character, Nathan Scott. This move actually does make sense, as Brian has tended to distance himself professionally from Beverly Hills, 90210 since the show ended. He did not take part in the 2003 special, Beverly Hills 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion, and according to Tori Spelling (in her memoirs, sTORI Telling), she hasn’t spoken to Brian since that last show back in 2000.
Q: I would appreciate any information you could give me on an old movie called Johnny Concho starring Frank Sinatra. This was a really good movie, but I never see anything on it anymore. — Paul K., North Port, Fla.
A: Johnny Concho was a great 1956 western starring Ol’ Blue Eyes, along with William Conrad, Phyllis Kirk and Claude Akins. This was a breakthrough performance for Frank, because at 40, he was finally given the chance to play against type as the villain, Johnny Concho. This is a highly underrated film that deserves a chance at a second life on DVD.
