Happy birthday to THE MAN

Happy birthday to J.J. Abrams, creator of the JJ-Verse and the man who saved television (and Star Trek, among other things) turns 44 today. I may just celebrate with a Season One mini-marathon today....

Jennifer Garner denies pregnancy rumors

Jennifer Garner's rep has denied reports that she is pregnant. We usually don't dwell on rumors, but since talk about it had gotten so out of hand that the actress herself had to respond, we decided to run it. That's your non-news item of the day!

Jennifer Garner in Arthur remake?

Rumors are swirling in Hollywood that Jennifer Garner is in talks for a role in the remake of Arthur, starring Russell Brand. Jen would play Susan, the heiress Brand's Arthur would have to marry to keep his fortune. Nick Nolte is in talks to play her father.

While I'd like to see The Dimples in a new Arthur, I find Russell Brand unbearable. He's unfunny and a complete beating. I don't know if Jen would be enough to get me in a theater. OK, I'm lying, I'd still go, but my opinion of Brand won't change.

Vartan on Alias reboot: NO NO NO NO!

Michael Vartan has chimed in on the whole Alias reboot rumors, and he ain't happy. Actually, he's joking about it, but he thinks the whole idea is kind of silly. "I'm still young enough to run down a hallway, and so is Jennifer [Garner]. What is this nonsense of recasting Alias? Give us 20 years at least. How dare they?"

Vartan is currently doing press interview for the second season of Hawthorne, which premieres June 22 on TNT. He doesn't think the main cast members would return for a show if they continued the original storyline, and he doesn't even think he would guest star on a continuation that focuses on new characters. "I would say, 'Go with God' and do something else. There's only one Jack Bristow and Sydney Bristow."

Is the Undercovers script online?

If you're wondering if Undercovers will deliver the goods, you might be able to judge. An Italian newspaper, Il Post, claims to have the script to the pilot, and have posted the first twenty pages online. It's unclear whether it is the real deal, but the paper thinks so.

The script was written by J.J. Abrams and Josh Reims, and according to a note on the script, the pacing is incredibly fast. Personally, I won't read it, because I want to enter the show without any preconceptions. Remember the awesome opening to Alias? I'm hoping for that, and reading the script beforehand will ruin that.
