Jennifer Garner's old dorm room now a cultural landmark

Jennifer Garner's old dorm room has become some sort of cultural landmark. Room 113 of Smith Hall at Denison University in Columbus, Ohio was Garner's home when she first attended college, and it is now a boy's dorm shared by three grateful young men. “I feel her soul in the room every time I walk in,” Guram Sakvarelidze, a student from the country of Georgia, told a reporter about living in the room. Really? I don't care how big a fan you are of Alias, that's still weird.

Victor Garber on the big screen this week

If you miss your Spy Daddy, you can see him on the big screen this weekend in the movie "You Again." He plays somebody's husband. Don't ask me whose - not even the greatness of Victor Garber can get me to see this flick. He probably gets just a few minutes of screen time anyway. Sorry, Jack.

Affleck won't work again with Jennifer

While promoting his new film "The Town," Ben Affleck talked about the possibility of working with his wife again. The two worked together on "Pearl Harbor" and "Daredevil," before they started dating. "Jen is a great actress. I would be profoundly lucky to work with her," he said. "But something tells me that people don't want to see real-life couples together at the movies. I think audiences have a hard time suspending disbelief. They already know a whole bunch of things about the relationship you have with the other person and if you try and thrust you and another person into a fictional relationship. I think it is distracting."

Fox orders J.J.'s "Alcatraz"

Another island mystery drama for J.J.? It sure looks like it. Fox Television has ordered a pilot from Bad Robot Productions called "Alcatraz." It written by Liz Sarnoff (a Lost writer) as well as Steven Lilen and Bryan Wynbrandt (who wrote fro Kyle XY) and is described as a "dramatic series that explores the lore and mysteries of Alcatraz, the notorious San Francisco island prison." Since this is an order for a pilot, there is no guarantee this will make it to air. Fox executives must review the pilot before ordering a series, usually in the spring.

David Anders on Vampire Diaries

David Anders certainly made an impression on The Vampire Diaries, the CW hit show, this past season. Without giving spoilers, Anders' character, Uncle John, was a big part of the finale last season, with the second season premiere airing last night. I missed it myself, but you can visit CWTV.com to see past episodes. The premiere isn't up yet, but it should be soon, and several of last season's episodes are available to watch.
