Have any of you heard Jack's Mannequin's song “The Resolution” used in the commercial for ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition:
COULDN’T YOU JUST CRY?!
COULDN’T YOU JUST CRY?!
The wonderful Katherine Heigl is featured in the newest issue of Vanity Fair, looking as glamorous as ever. She also appears in the latest Us Weekly, which details the tour bus crash that almost claimed the life of her fiance, Josh Kelley. We've scanned both so that you can see them. Click to enlarge.
We've also learned that in December, Katherine will be on the cover of Cosmpolitan, while her co-star, Ellen Pompeo, will grace the cover of Allure. We'll have both those covers and the articles about our favorite stars for you as soon as we can!
Modest actress Katherine Heigl overcame her shyness over stripping on hit medical drama GREY'S ANATOMY, after the crew dropped their clothes on set.
Heigl admits she felt really uncomfortable when she had to shoot her first underwear scene in the racy drama series and was thrilled when the crew joined her.
She says, "I'm very comfortable with my body. I'm super OK with it in the dark in my own home; that's fine. But, on a set in front of not only an entire crew but then we had a whole bunch of background actors for this one particular scene I had to do... It was a very empowering scene but I felt very insecure and very scared.
"I jokingly said something to the director... I said, 'Why don't you get in your underwear, if I have to get in my underwear?' And he actually did... and then so did the crew.
"It was fun. It definitely relieved a lot of the tension for me. It took a lot of the eyes off me, which was nice."
NEW YORK -- Two "Lost" tough guys, Mr. Eko and Ben, showed surprising vulnerability as both confronted personal demons on the CTV drama.
One even wound up face-to-face with the show's deadliest monster. Those who have yet to watch Wednesday's episode are advised to stop reading.
An injured Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) had a vision of his brother, Yemi, a Nigerian priest. "It is time to confess. ... I will be waiting. You know where to find me," Yemi told Eko.
Eko, overcome by fatigue and fear, trudged clumsily through the jungle on his way to a downed small plane that held Yemi's body. His visions continued as That Thing -- you know, the nefarious smoke monster -- slithered nearby.
Pre-crash, Eko had become a priest after Yemi was killed while trying to stop his plan to smuggle heroin out of Nigeria. As a youth, he was reluctantly drafted into the dark side by village-raiding guerrillas who ordered Yemi to shoot an innocent man ... or die. Eko grabbed the gun from Yemi and followed through.
Back in the castaways' camp, Locke ( Terry O'Quinn) recruited Sayid ( Naveen Andrews), Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) and two comely newcomers to find Eko and visit the small bunker dubbed "The Pearl" to try and communicate with the Others.
Eko, spotted in the forest, took a knife to Locke's throat when asked if he was searching for Yemi. "What are you afraid of?" Locke asked. Yemi's body, it turned out, was no longer in the plane.
Inside The Pearl, Locke and crew discovered that one of the bunker's multiple television screens was connected to a TV in another bunker inhabited by a guy with an eye patch. The guy was aware they were watching him and covered his screen with his hand.
Meanwhile, Jack ( Matthew Fox) learned he was right -- those X-rays he saw in last week's episode belonged to Ben (Michael Emerson), who has a fatal tumor on his spine. Ben, he of the creepy mind games, was distressed when Jack, a spinal surgeon, figured out he was dying.
"We had such a wonderful plan to break you down, Jack, wear you down until you were convinced we weren't your enemies, get you to trust us," he said. "Then, of course, we'd lead you to believe that you were choosing to do whatever we asked you to do."
Ben's strategy involved using bait: the lovely Juliet ( Elizabeth Mitchell), who resembles Jack's ex-wife. In a reversal of power, he asked his brooding captive to think about the operation. The plane crash that left Jack stranded, he said, was "proof of God."
Juliet had her own message: She rolled in a TV and played Jack a secret video of her brandishing flashcards that advised him to botch Ben's surgery. "No one would ever know," one card read.
In a clearing on an island not too far away, Eko refused to confess his sins to Yemi during a second encounter. "I've only done what I need to do to survive," he said.
But Yemi was not what he seemed. "You speak to me as if I were your brother," he said. Suddenly he was gone -- seconds later, a wisp of you-know-what blew through the trees.
That wisp became a vicious dark cloud, snatching and beating Eko, who last season had triumphantly stared it down.
Eko died with Locke at his side, after whispering something in his ear. Sayid, standing nearby, asked: "What did he say, John?"
"He said we're next," Locke replied.
We Are Marshall is a film that chronicles the aftermath of the 1970 plane crash that killed 37 members of the Marshall University football team, eight coaches, 25 boosters and five crew members and the efforts of Jack Lengyel, played by Matthew McConaughey, along with surviving assistant coach Red Dawson, played by Matthew Fox, to rebuild the team from scratch.
Matthew Fox's character, Red Dawson, was the assistant coach for the 1970 Marshall University football team. He didn’t get on the plane the night of the crash. After the tragic occurrence, he was approached by the school to act as head coach of the team, but decided against coming back. Coach Lengyel convinces Dawson to return for a year to help rebuild the team as assistant coach.
We spoke with Fox about how he felt undertaking such an emotional project like We Are Marshall. We also talked about him meeting the real Red Dawson and what it was like working with McG as a director.

It could be that retailer wife, Yessica, finally said something. Or maybe Lost actor Josh Holloway just wants to be taken seriously despite the huge airhead influence hitting Hollywood right now. “I’m looking to do a really different role next, more of a character who maybe even keeps his shirt on most of the time,” he joked to US Weekly. Well, we all saw how well that panned out for “serious actor” Brendan Fraser.
