Hunter’s life a ‘Saving Grace’

Truth be told, Holly Hunter isn’t convinced her character in “Saving Grace” needs saving. At least not right away. Back in 2007, when the first episode of TNT’s hit drama series aired, Grace Hanadarko was visited by a “last-chance angel” who warned her to change her ways. But Grace, a brilliant Oklahoma City police detective whose personal life is a train wreck, is more interesting, and more fun for Hunter to play, as a randy, rebellious, unrepentant hell-raiser.

LOS ANGELES – Chris Brown briefly appeared in court Thursday, hours after he was charged with two felonies stemming from what a police detective describes as a brutal argument between the singer and his girlfriend, Rihanna.

Miley smacks Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers were good-little-boy hawkers for their signature film, “Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience,” which opened Friday. Their appearance at the Palisades Center in West Nyack, N.Y., on Saturday is a good example. The brothers – Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas – grew up in nearby Wyckoff, N.J.

The past helped push Streisand

It was a challenge that Barbra Streisand wasn’t sure she could handle. Although she made her directorial debut with 1983’s “Yentl” – the musical drama about a young Jewish woman who disguises herself as a man – she was wary of taking on filmmaker duties for the cinematic adaptation of Isaac Bashevis Singer’s short story.

50 Cent waits to make big bucks

Gretchen loves to play molls from the past

Gretchen Mol has been spending a lot of time in the past lately. Her role in the new television police drama “Life on Mars” pushes her back to 1973. And her latest film, “An American Affair,” stretches back even further, to 1963.

No L.A. life for little girl Ledger

Clooney dodges Hollywood glow

One of the faces that you might have missed at Sunday’s Oscars broadcast was that of George Clooney. Turns out the “Michael Clayton” star was meeting with President Barack Obama to tell him about the recent trip he’d made to the camps in Chad where a quarter-million Sudanese refugees are trying to exist.

Cher lies low when in Sin City

Cher’s concert stand in Las Vegas may be the ultimate representation of Sin City: It’s decadent, glitzy, oversized, over-the-top and a thrill-a-minute experience. But when she leaves the Colosseum at Caesars Palace at the end of her performance, the 62-year-old singer leads a lifestyle quite opposite from the kind that Las Vegas has come to represent.

Bentley returns to simple roots

When Dierks Bentley turned over his finished album to his label after two years of hard work, he didn’t quite get the response he was looking for. Capitol Records Nashville President Mike Dungan listened and listened, and then listened some more. Something bothered him. He thought about it and he slept on it until, finally, he had to speak up.

Cancer-stricken TV star weds, as cameras roll

LONDON – Bald from chemotherapy and so weak she had trouble standing, British reality TV star Jade Goody married her 21-year-old sweetheart on Sunday – and her every tear was captured on camera. The wedding extravaganza for the brash 27-year-old, now dying from cervical cancer, has captivated Britain and helped turn the loud-mouthed Goody from the star everyone loved to hate to the one they can’t praise enough.

There’s no love like animal love

Domestic squabble occur every day. But according to the New York Post, the kind of domestic quarrel that hit Sandra Herold and her friend Charla Nash on Monday was undeniably strange. Monday was when Herold’s 200-pound pet chimpanzee, Travis, went on a rampage, mauled Nash and attacked New York police before being shot and killed.

Brown’s apology too little, late?

Battlin’ Lohans make headlines

Every generation has its favorite celebrity-family horrorshow. Few, however, match that put on by the Lohans. First there’s first daughter Lindsay Lohan, she of the partying and on-set hissy fits and auto accidents. Then there’s dad Michael Lohan, he of the stock-fraud prison sentences and abuse charges.

Daley uses role to make ‘Bones’

When baby-faced actor John Francis Daley joined the cast of “Bones” to play psychologist Lance Sweets, he expected to be at the receiving end of some sharp barbs about his youthful looks. He just wants to deflect enough of those witty remarks so the viewers respect the character. “I feel like Sweets is one of those characters where he’s very intelligent and has managed to work his way up the career ladder at an incredibly rapid pace. But at the same time he’s still 22 or 23 years old so we see traces of his youthfulness in the psychological mumbo jumbo that he’s usually spouting,” Daley says. “I would say that in those glimpses of his youth that is where I sort of come out as just myself.

Looking for balance is this Jane’s addiction

No one would ever have to ask Jane Krakowski what her astrological sign is. She’s a die-hard Libra, always looking for balance in everything she does. Take her gig as vain actress Jenna Maroney on the Emmy-winning sitcom “30 Rock”: The show’s New York location has allowed her to juggle Broadway (she won raves as the vamp Lola in “Damn Yankees” last summer) with TV. Even her stage name was a nice compromise: When everyone kept pronouncing the silent J in her family name Krajkowski, out came the J.
