Trumping <i>Saturday Night Live</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Saturday Night Live may well be the longest running comedy show in the history of television. The first cast was a few years older than me, though I still considered them my peers. We didn't know each other personally, but it felt like we did. The original cast of Saturday Night Live was much more than the clique, or the in-crowd, they were the anti-in-crowd. They were the outsiders who became the insiders which is what made them heroes. Gilda, Larraine, and Jane were the girls who didn't make the cheerleading squad. Dan and John and Garrett and later Bill Murray weren't the best looking football players. They were popular because they were funny. Funny is always king, or queen, and that first season of SNL featured Lily Tomlin, Madeline Kahn, Louise Lasser, Jill Clayburgh, the great Buck Henry and Anthony Perkins, among others. In those days we all thought the hosts and the cast hung out together. They all seemed to live in the same world, and that was part of the magic and the cha ...

Al Pacino Plays Aging Rock Star in "Danny Collins"
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
all phootos from Bleeker Street Last night, Friday, at the AMC 15 Theatre in Century City I attended a showing of Al Pacino's new film, DANNY COLLINS, from Bleeker Street Media. Pictures, which is getting a limited release starting today. I happened to be seated next to an old friend, and I made the ego-driven mistake of mentioning that I had actually discovered Al and put him into his first Broadway show. After the screening we caucused in the lobby and smiled at each other as we shook our heads in wonder at the excellence of what we had just seen. All in all, we decided that we really liked the movie a great deal. In fact I told old acquaintance Harris Katelman, who was entering the theatre, that I thought it was Pacino's best performance in years and one of the fjnest pictures I had seen thus far this year. (And my Huffington readers may recall that I wrote a lauditory review of Al's The Humbling just a few months ago.) Dannys' famaily in the film. Annette Bening is ...

First Monday in October
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"First Monday in October" is the catch phrase associated by many people with the movie starring Walter Matthau and Jill Clayburgh. In actuality, though, the phrase carries far greater significance -- it's the official name for the beginning of the U.S. Supreme Court's new term each year. For lawyers, this start of a new season is filled with excitement and anticipation as the Court hears oral arguments, delivers opinions and decides whether to grant certiorari on some of the most important and pressing legal issues in the nation. As a young law student in Washington, D.C. many years ago, I often gazed up at the Court's marbled columns with great reference whenever I passed by. This October, however, I'm dismayed, still focused on the high court's regrettable ending of its last term in June when the Court elected to punt on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. In the Defense of Marriage Act case, the high court struck down a portion of the law that forbade the federal governm ...

CCH Pounder On Going From TV Victim To Butt-Kicker
Huffington Post - over 3 years
CCH Pounder has been lots of things throughout her career -- detectives, aliens, lawyers, doctors and so much more -- but chances are none of it would have happened if it wasn't for a childhood accident. "When I was a kid, a pickleball hit me in the back of the head and I had memory problems," Pounder told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. "I was in a boarding school and the nuns gave me poems to remember, to try and get the memory going again. After a couple of weeks there would be a couple of nuns, and then four, then six, then it was like, 'Oh, I think they like me.' At first I thought they were checking on my accuracy with the words, but then I realized that they were being entertained. I liked it." Pounder's impressive list of film and TV credits (there are at least 120 credits on IMDb in her almost 35-year career, including "Avatar" and "The Shield," ) make her the perfect subject for "Isn't That ... ?," a HuffPost feature highlighting those character acto ...

Jay Weston: Al Pacino Plays Phil Spector in HBO Film
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Al Pacino at the Venice Film Festival On Sunday I attended a concert by musician Herb Alpert inaugurating the stunning Ann and Jerry Moss Theatre located in the Herb Alpert Educational Village in Santa Monica. It was an illustrious invited audience of people who had contributed to the creation of this astonishing educational complex dedicated to furthering the cause of education in America -- which is a roundabout way to get into this story of actor Al Pacino playing Phil Spector in that much-discussed (and very weird) HBO film. You see, I was coincidentally seated in the theatre next to legendary filmmakers Roger Corman and wife Julie... and remarked that Roger had produced a 1985 B-movie, Barbarian Queen, which has become a cult favorite; it starred the Amazonian 6 foot tall blond bombshell, Lana Clarkson... whose death was explored in the David Mamet-written and directed HBO film playing that very evening. I remarked to the Cormans that I had casually met Phil Spector man ...

Lois Alter Mark: Tina Fey, Paul Rudd and Paul Weitz on Admission, Parenting and Mean Mommy Bloggers
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Anyone who has been through the college admissions process knows how harrowing it can be. But what is it like when you're the one making the decision, rather than waiting for it? In Admission, which opens Friday, Tiny Fey's character gets a rare opportunity to experience the stress on both sides of the application. Portia, an unmarried Princeton admissions officer, reconnects with John (Paul Rudd), an old classmate who now teaches at an alternative high school. He introduces her to a student who just may be the son she gave up for adoption years ago, and informs her that he is applying to Princeton. I had such a good time at the press junket for Admission, where my fellow bloggers and I got to meet stars Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, and director Paul Weitz. As a fan of everyone involved -- plus the book itself -- I looked forward to hearing what words of wisdom they would impart about parenting and the college admissions process. Here are some snippets from our press confere ...

Alan Colmes: Dear NRA, Please Put Me on Your Enemies List
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
The National Rifle Association has an extensive enemies list, and I am, frankly, insulted that I am not on it. The list is sorely lacking. Politicians favoring gun regulations are absent, as are this thing we have in the digital era called websites. Addicting Info would be a nice addition, not to mention Occupy the NRA. I have a little site called Liberaland that isn't exactly an NRA press shop. Maybe if they spent less time playing shoot-em-up and gave The Google an occasional whirl, they'd know what century it is. Some of the people on the list are actually dead. I loved Nora Ephron and Jill Clayburgh, but they're not currently setting the world on fire. Nor is the late soap star John Ingle. I may not be the biggest name, nor am I the most important voice speaking out against the NRA's foolish, out-of-touch positions, but at least I'm operating above room temperature. HELLO! Some of the NRA's "enemies" are groups like Hadassah, the U.S. Catholic Conference, and the YWCA ...

Jay Weston: Joe Papp Documentary Is Superb Depiction of Complex Man
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Joe Papp I grew up in New York during the age of Joe Papp. For those of my Huffington readers who don't know who Joe Papp was, I will explain him by noting that he was a young, tough theatrical impresario who changed the way millions of New Yorkers thought about free pubic theatre in general and Shakespeare in particular. From the mid-50s until he died in 1991, he was probably the most important theatrical figure in that city, perhaps in the country, influencing hordes of people favorably about the enjoyment of the theatrical experience. Last night I was invited by my long-time friend and reader, noted theatrical agent Harry Abrams, to attend a screening at the Skirball of the documentary film, Joe Papp in Five Acts: A Film by Tracie Holder and Karen Thorsen. Harry, along with friend TV writer Allan Burns, introduced the film in their role as directors of the Music Center Leadership Council, a group dedicated to promoting the theatrical experience for young people in Los ...
