No Broadway in Jen's Future

In her recent interview with W Magazine, Jennifer Garner admitted she loved appearing on Broadway in 2007, but she won't be doing it again anytime soon, in order to spend time with her family. “You can’t tell your kids, ‘I’m exhausted. Wake up with someone else today’. I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress. I have this internal battle between, I need to work, I need to work, I need to work and I need to be home with my kids. And the kids win.”

Barefoot Contessa vs. Sydney Bristow!

According to W Magazine, Ida Garten, better known as the "Barefoot Contessa" on the Food Network show, dissed Jennifer Garner's attempt to appear on her show. Garner is a fan and reached out to the host. "I tried to get on Ina's show... but eventually she just said, 'I'm sorry, I only use my real friends on the show.' I felt like, 'What are you saying? That we're not friends? I know everything about you!'" After watching her show, I think Garten is one of those New England elitists that look down on working moms like Garner (even though she is famous), so maybe she's better off not being on the show.

Happy Birthday to Vartan!

It's Michael Vartan's birthday. Our favorite Frenchman turns 41 today. Ladies, please don't try stuffing yourselves into a cake and having yourself delivered to his house. Here's an interesting bit of Vartan birthday trivia: Michael shares his birthday with Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) and the Fresh Prince's Uncle Phil (James Avery).

J.J. to direct new spy drama pilot

J.J. Abrams is getting behind the camera for TV again, for the first time since he directed an episode of "The Office" a few seasons back. He is directing the pilot for "Undercovers," a drama about two married spies, for NBC. Abrams also directed pilots for "Alias" and "Lost" as well as the HBO drama "Anatomy of Hope." This is the spy drama we had reported on earlier, which until now was unnamed. No air date has been announced.

The Sydney Doll That Never Was

Chances are you've never seen this. This is a prototype for a 12 inch Sydney Bristow doll that was shown at Toy Fair in early 2003. The doll was never released due to poor sales of the 7 inch Alias figures they did release. Mirage soon folded and Stevenson eventually took over the Alias line. As far as we can tell, finding one of these prototypes is harder than finding a Rambaldi artifact. However, if anyone does have one, EMAIL US. You can click on the pictures to see larger versions.

J.J.'s "Trek" the Biggest Ever

J.J.'s reboot of "Star Trek" has officially ended its theatrical run as the most successful film in the series. With a gross of $385 million worldwide, it surpassed the earnings of all other "Trek" movies, even when the numbers are adjusted for inflation. The movie hits DVD in November.

Another Spy Drama for J.J.

NBC has won a bidding war among several networks for a pilot from J.J. Abrams' new projet: a drama about a husband and wife spy team. It will be titled "The Vaughns." OK, I'm kidding about the title. Even if it doesn't have the husband and wife spy team we were hoping for, I'll still give it a try. J.J. apparently wrote the pilot with Josh Reims. No word yet on production or an airdate.

Jennifer's New Poster

Jennifer Garner is featured on the new one sheet poster for her new film "The Invention of Lying." The trailer for this movie looks really funny, even with the weird premise. We'll find out if Ricky Gervais' humor translates to American audiences who haven't seen his version of "The Office." Until then, you can always watch that episode from Season 3 he guest-starred in. To see a larger version of the poster, click the picture.

Garber Is Sinestro!

Victor Garber stars in the new Green Lantern animated movie as Sinestro, the dastardly villian. I have yet to see the cartoon, but I hear it is great fun. Christopher Meloni stars as Green Lantern, and the cast also includes Trisha Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Michael Madsen (Kill Bill), and Olivia D'Abo (an Alias alum). Be aware: if you are buying this for your kiddos, it is rated PG-13 for violence.

Rachel Nichols Now in Pocket Size!

From all the looks of it, the new G.I. Joe movie is gonna stink, and that's my PG language. People in an early screening hated it, and they dropped the "Real American Hero" part, because they thought international movie-going audiences still hate America. The Joes wear no American flags, and their base of operations is in Belgium. These left wing Hollywood liberals sold out the red, white and blue for money. Even though I'm a Joe fan, I won't be going.

They did get 2 things right though: Ray Park as Snake Eyes and Rachel Nichols as Scarlett. Here is a pic of the new Scarlett figure, with some great artwork of Rachel. Enjoy!

Jennifer Garner Vs. Kevin Smith

Director Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck have been friends for years, since Smith cast a young Ben in his 90's hit Mallrats. In a recent interview however, Smith says Jennifer didn't appreciate the good-natured ribbing he gave Affleck when he visited the set of Catch and Release, in which Smith co-starred with Garner.

According to Smith, "I was picking on Ben and making fun of him because I've known him for a really long time - I was talking smack - and Jennifer goes, 'You know, if you keep saying stuff about him, I'm going to kick your (behind).' And she could - I've seen Alias."

J.J. Abrams has confirmed that he will serve as a producer of Mission Impossible 4. Tom Cruise will again executive produce and star as Ethan Hunt.

Anders Goes 'Into the Blue'


David Anders is talking about his role in the movie "Into the Blue 2" with Laura Vandervoot (Smallville) out on DVD now. In a TV Guide interview LINKED HERE, he talks about playing a British villain again as well as his upcoming role in The Sci-Fi Channel's remake of "Children of the Corn."

Anders was also recently a guest star on the Fox series "Lie to Me."

Nichols and Grunberg in Star Trek!

Yes, that is Rachel Nichols in the new Star Trek movie as an Orion slave girl/cadet. Perfect casting, don't you think? In case you missed it, Greg Grunberg also had a bit part in the new film: his voice was heard as Kirk's stepfather warning him to bring his car back after he takes it out on a joyride. Very cool. If you haven't seen the movie yet, you are missing J.J.'s best work yet, seriously.
