Tim Daly Memorializes the True Casualty of Wings' Big Plane Crash

Tim Daly Memorializes the True Casualty of Wings'  Big Plane Crash
Let us all observe a moment of silence for the Sandpiper Air flight that went down off of Cape Cod nearly 25 years ago… but don’t worry about observing too long, because it was a fictional event on the NBC comedy Wings. And the only real victim, star Tim Daly tells us, was a rather sensitive part of his anatomy.

In a Season 3 finale cliffhanger, a plane piloted by Sandpiper Air owners/brothers Joe and Brian Hackett, along with a handful of their co-workers, plunged into the

Twin Peaks Part 14 Recap: Like Daughter, Like Mother

Twin Peaks Part 14 Recap: Like Daughter, Like Mother
Nope, no Audrey Horne on Twin Peaks this week. I think the solution to her ever-deepening mystery won’t be wrapped up for at least a few more episodes. And for the record, I do not believe she is an actress or somehow trapped inside the soap opera “Invitation To Love” from the original series. I mean, c’mon, think about it, that makes no sense. She’s an actress in a soap opera playing a character with her own name? A soap opera that references events taking place in her hometown? That’s completely absurd (right??). That theory is

Twin Peaks Recap: Donna 'Returns'

Twin Peaks Recap: Donna 'Returns'
You may not realize it, but Lara Flynn Boyle’s Donna — the heart of the original series, the activated burgeoning girl detective, my one true love — returned to Twin Peaks Sunday.

Where exactly was she in the show? Well, it’s complicated. First, her face appeared in an old framed photo (of Laura and Donna, from the original series) sitting on a side table in Sarah Palmer’s living room. Then her voice (it was indeed Boyle’s voice) wafted out over the Road House as James Hurley sang his sweet, crazy, retro 50’s ballad “Just You And I” from Season 2. (Yes,

Kelly Lynch Turned Down Sharon Stone's Iconic Basic Instinct Role — Why She Says 'I Don't Regret a Bit of That'

Kelly Lynch Turned Down Sharon Stone's Iconic Basic Instinct Role — Why She Says 'I Don't Regret a Bit of That'
Kelly Lynch knows why she was cast in 1988’s Cocktail.

“It was one of those parts that models get because my audition was various bikinis,” the actress, whose background was in modeling and children’s theater, tells People.

After acting opposite Tom Cruise, she got steamy with Patrick Swayze in 1989’s Road House. “To do your first two films with Patrick Swayze and Tom Cruise, who are both — were, in Patrick’s case — really amazing sweet and kind, guys, I loved working with both of them,” says Lynch, now 58. “They were really, really fun.”

Twin Peaks Recap: Da Bomb Diggity?
Here’s the simple recap of Twin Peaks Part 8: Colors! Lights! Sounds! What am I watching?

Now for the longer version, let’s take a careful look at the truly wild (but deceptively simple) phantasmagoria that exploded gorgeously across the world’s television screens on Sunday night:

In South Dakota | We started off in a very normal way (considering what was to come). Bad Coop and Ray have escaped prison, and are driving towards a place called “The Farm” (is it Big Ed’s Gas Farm? Doubtful). Bad Coop still wants that mysterious and vital information from Ray. But

Twin Peaks Episode 7 Recap: Audrey's Fate (Finally) Revealed

Twin Peaks Episode 7 Recap: Audrey's Fate (Finally) Revealed
Twin Peaks stuck (mostly) to the facts this week, and the payoff was a gorgeous bounty of desperately sought information, correctly placed puzzle-pieces, and giddy fan service. Part 7 had me bouncing off the walls with joy, anticipation and deep Lynchian tension. Very surprising considering how little actually took place, and how “normal” (comparatively) the narrative was. Yes, a miniature version of the “Tree with a Brain” did pop out of a sidewalk to instruct Coop/Dougie to “squeeze the hand off” (?) of the little-person assassin. But otherwise there wasn’t too much kookiness getting in the way of good, solid plot.

'Twin Peaks' Recap: Cell-Bye Date
Is your heart still pounding? Culminating in the escape of Agent Dale Cooper's doppelganger, tonight's Twin Peaks was tense and terrifying enough to leave you freaked out long after "Sleep Walk" on the Double R's jukebox brought the credits to a close. But before we talk about all that, let's take a look at the dogs that didn't bark. Throughout the episode, co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost utilize the show's usual ingredients for creating supernatural suspense. The results they produce this time out, however, are completely different.

Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure) was rumored to have the part back in 1991. And theories swirled over the years suggesting Agent Cooper’s trusty Gal Friday might just be a figment of his imagination. But in Sunday’s Twin Peaks, the one and only “Diane” was finally revealed to be none other than Laura Dern. (Nifty that she played his Girl Friday back in Blue Velvet too, huh?) A satisfying moment 27 years in the making (even if most of us guessed and hoped it was coming). Now, Albert (who found her in Max Von’s Bar in Philadelphia – did that

Sam Elliott Discusses His Iconic Western Image in ‘The Hero’

It’s hard to pin-down the iconic Sam Elliott performance. Between the good-natured biker of Mask to Swayze’s bestie in Road House to, of course, The Stranger in The Big Lebowski, Elliott has elevated each of these supporting roles into fully fleshed characters, suggesting more with a simple drawl and smile than most actors could in an eight-page scene. Elliott, at one point typecast only in Westerns, has steadily built up a storied career – popping up in big-budget tent-poles like The Hulk & The Golden Compass or critical darlings like The Contender & Up …

Sam Elliott: 'My security comes from the fact I've never done a job for money'

The veteran actor, known for his roles in The Big Lebowski and Tombstone, talks about how the industry has changed and how to avoid selling out

Sam Elliott has always been very careful about choosing roles. The 72-year-old, a California-born performer with a celebrated drawl, has never made movies that served purely to further his career. His career has included roles in Road House, The Big Lebowski, Tombstone and, more recently, I’ll See You in My Dreams, but he’s never quite become the household name he should be.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Jack’S Back (1988)

Throughout much of his career, James Spader has excelled at playing a type; and that type is specifically this: rich and arrogant, with a sense of condescension and an air of pretense. It’s not his fault; his wispy (or is that WASPy?) good looks and mellifluous voice initially offer little sympathy to the working class. But when he’s given an opportunity to play against this type, the results are exhilarating. Such is the case with Jack’s Back (1988), a clever thriller elevated by a terrific dual role performance from Spader. Come for Jack the Ripper; stay for James the Spaders.

Released by Palisades Entertainment Group in May, Jack’s Back only made back half of its million dollar budget at the box office and the critics were for the most part, unkind (with the exception of Siskel & Ebert, who liked it – go figure). But writer/director Rowdy Herrington

Twin Peaks Revival Premiere Recap: The Meaning of the Box Is Threefold?
If you’ve come to this recap of the Twin Peaks revival premiere seeking answers about what the heck happens in the series premiere, I’m going to have to make like Cooper in the Black Lodge and say next to nothing.

Because, honestly, Nadine’s drape runners have a better idea of what’s going on in the two-hour huh?-fest than I do. It doesn’t mean I won’t recount the highlights of the long-awaited continuation’s first installments, it just means that this long-time fan found the first few episodes tough to navigate.
