HBO celebrated the premiere of its latest addition to the line-up, "Hung" on Wednesday (24JUN09) in Los Angeles. The offbeat comedy is about a well-endowed schoolteacher-come-escort named Ray Drecker. "It's about a guy trying to survive the times, you know?" said the show's star Thomas Jane. "Here's a guy who's an all American guy. A relatively good looking guy, talented, baseball player, played a season for the Braves. Married his high school sweet heart, home coming queen, had a couple of kids, travelling around the country, he's got it made. This is America for God's sake." As the economy gets tougher and tougher to survive, the underpaid teacher decides to supplement his income by capitalizing on his generous physical gift. With the help of a former-acquaintance-turned-pimp, Tanya (Jane Adams), Ray attempts to earn extra cash. "It's a little empowering. I'm selling his ass. Selling his ass," jokes Jane Adams. "It's going to go for a pretty penny, we hope." The extra money helps to counter the financial drains caused by his divorce from his ex-wife (Anne Heche), the needs of his teenaged twins, a lapsed fire-insurance policy, and a stubborn inability to take control of his life. "Jessica is a girl who, you know it's kind of little bit of the story of Jack and Diane, she is an American kid in Detroit, and fell in love with a boy named Ray and then they grew up," explained Heche. "And then things weren't as wonderful as she thought they were and not as wonderful as she would continue to like them to be. So she lives a little in that bubble." For those living in caves, "Hung" does not refer to anyone's last name. It's a description of Drecker's sole useful asset. Because, you know, he's hung. It leaves one to wonder what the audition process was like for Thomas Jane. Quick to admit to the process, Thomas Jane shows no shame. "I don't know, I'd say it was a little bit of type casting," smirks Jane. "But I try to avoid it, but in this business it just keeps getting harder and harder...I don't know." "Hung" debuts on HBO, Sunday, June 28.

It's like how policemen go into a crime scene or a fireman comes out of a fire, you know? It's just sort of what we do emotionally. And it's hard to explain how you equip yourself with that because everybody does it differently. But we had a lot of great support. We all have our families and we all have each other and we laughed a lot whilst we were on the film. It's one of those things that you don't think we would but we actually did laugh a lot."

She was there and we chanted fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had no hair and I shaved some of it off. So it was fuelled with energy but of course it was scary up until then.

And Sophia and I are both people who don't really open up to anybody. We're kind of?and so there was no chemistry there. Shot this really short thing fortunately so it didn't really matter. The Nick asked me to take her out for the night and we just went out for like four hours and laughed and really opened up to each other and from that point on we didn't even really have to build the chemistry. It was just there." New Line Cinema 22. Clip film: 'My Sister's Keeper' DIAZ TAKES ON NEW ROLE IN "MY SISTER'S KEEPER" Hollywood superstar Cameron Diaz admits she didn't think twice about becoming a mom - in her latest film that is. "I didn't worry whether it was something believable or that I hadn't played it before," she says. "It was something that I really enjoyed." And though she's not a real-life mother, Diaz plays the bulldog matriarch Sara in director Nick Cassavetes' latest drama, 'My Sister's Keeper.' The film premiered Wednesday (24 June) in New York City. Based on the Jodi Picoult best-seller, the film focuses on the Fitzgerald family, and the drastic decision they made in medically engineering a child (Abigail Breslin) as a perfect genetic match to help save the life of their older daughter Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), who has leukaemia. Diaz says working on such a heart-wrenching movie takes its toll on the actors. "It does take its toll on you. But that's what we do, you know? It's like how policemen go into a crime scene or a fireman comes out of a fire, you know? It's just sort of what we do emotionally," she says. In the film little Anna provides blood, bone marrow, whatever Kate needs. She does it because she loves her sister, and because it's all she'd ever known. Now at 11, with Kate needing a kidney, Anna says no for the first time - and beyond that, she files a lawsuit seeking medical emancipation from her parents to keep them from making further decisions about her body. Diaz says she was "amazed" how courageous her young co-stars were during filming: "Sophia shaved her head and her eyebrows at fifteen, you know. That's a really formidable time when kids really have their identity with their hair. That's who they are. And she just did it. She had hair down to here. And Abigail was just sort of fearless in everything. She's a warrior." Vassilieva admits that shaving her head was a scary prospect at first, but credits her colleagues for helping her through. "It was such a great team to support me through and I remember when I was shaving my head Nick was there. Nick Cassavetes, our incredible director. Nicole Schultz who's a girl who was actually our support. She's gone through cancer and she knows all the steps. She was there and we chanted fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had no hair and I shaved some of it off. So it was fuelled with energy but of course it was scary up until then. The eyebrows were the worst. Hair can be a fashion statement, but your eyebrows, that automatically labels you with an illness," says the star of TV's "Medium." Breslin says she was able to draw on real life experience for the role. "My grandpa died of cancer, so you know, I know that anybody in my family would have given anything to make him feel better and that's sort of what's going on in this family too," she says. In the film Kate shares her first love with a fellow cancer patient, played by Thomas Dekker ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"). Dekker says portraying their romance was a challenge at first. "The first day that we were shooting together is when we met," explains Dekker. "We'd had no time previous. And Sophia and I are both people who don't really open up to anybody. We're kind of?and so there was no chemistry there. Shot this really short thing fortunately so it didn't really matter. Then Nick asked me to take her out for the night and we just went out for like four hours and laughed and really opened up to each other and from that point on we didn't even really have to build the chemistry. It was just there." "My Sister's Keeper" opens in US and UK theaters 26 June 2009.

Various of Jackson on stage MICHAEL JACKSON DIES IN LA HOSPITAL; KING OF POP WAS 50 A source says that Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died at age 50. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Jackson died Thursday in a Los Angeles hospital. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times that Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m. local time (1930 GMT). Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s.

Close-up of card on wreath, "With Deepest Sympathy / The Hollywood Historic Trust" FANS REMEMBER FARRAH FAWCETT Just a couple hours after news broke that actress Farrah Fawcett passed away following a three-year battle with cancer, fans began to place flowers on her Hollywood Walk of Fame star. The biggest bouquet came from The Hollywood Historic Trust, which maintains the Walk of Fame. Fans paying their respects at her star remembered her for her fight against cancer, her compassion, and of course, her hair. "I actually garner a lot of strength from her, because I'm a liver cancer sufferer," said one. "And I once met Kate (Jackson), I worked for her once. I don't know, I have this bond with them and they don't even know me." "I just saw her love for other people," said another, "what a compassionate person she was." "She had nice hair, yeah, lovely hair," said another fan. "She was always the tall, sophisticated looking in 'Charlie's Angels.'" Fawcett burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in TV's "Charlie's Angels." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions. Her full, layered hairstyle became all the rage, with girls and women across America adopting the look. She left the show after one season and turned to more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, winning praise and an Emmy nomination for playing an abused wife in the TV film "The Burning Bed." She was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. As she underwent treatment, she enlisted the help of longtime beau Ryan O'Neal, who is the father of her now 24-year-old son, Redmond.

Clip - 'Charlies Angels' FARRAH FAWCETT DIES AT 62 Farrah Fawcett, whose luxurious tresses and blinding smile helped redefine sex appeal in the 1970s as one of TV's "Charlie's Angels," died Thursday after battling cancer. She was 62. The pop icon, who in the 1980s set aside the fantasy girl image to tackle serious roles, died Thursday shortly before 9:30 a.m. PDT in a Santa Monica hospital, spokesman Paul Bloch said. She burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in TV's "Charlie's Angels." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions. She left the show after one season but had a flop on the big screen with "Somebody Killed Her Husband." She turned to more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, winning praise playing an abused wife in "The Burning Bed." She had been diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. As she underwent treatment, she enlisted the help of actor Ryan O'Neal, who had been her longtime companion and was the father of her son, Redmond, born in 1985. This month, O'Neal said he asked Fawcett to marry him and she agreed. They would wed "as soon as she can say yes," he said. Her struggle with painful treatments and dispiriting setbacks was recorded in the television documentary "Farrah's Story." Fawcett sought cures in Germany as well as the United States, battling the disease with iron determination even as her body weakened. "Her big message to people is don't give up, no matter what they say to you, keep fighting," her friend Alana Stewart said. NBC estimated the May 15, 2009, broadcast drew nearly 9 million viewers. In the documentary, Fawcett was seen shaving off most of her trademark locks before chemotherapy could claim them. Toward the end, she's seen huddled in bed, barely responding to a visit from her son. Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith comprised the original "Angels," the sexy, police-trained trio of martial arts experts who took their assignments from a rich, mysterious boss named Charlie (John Forsythe, who was never seen on camera but whose distinctive voice was heard on speaker phone.) The program debuted in September 1976, the height of what some critics derisively referred to as television's "jiggle show" era, and it gave each of the actresses ample opportunity to show off their figures as they disguised themselves in bathing suits and as hookers and strippers to solve crimes. Backed by a clever publicity campaign, Fawcett - then billed as Farrah Fawcett-Majors because of her marriage to "Six Million Dollar Man" star Lee Majors - quickly became the most popular Angel of all. Her face helped sell T-shirts, lunch boxes, shampoo, wigs and even a novelty plumbing device called Farrah's faucet. Her flowing blond hair, pearly white smile and trim, shapely body made her a favorite with male viewers in particular. A poster of her in a dampened red swimsuit sold millions of copies and became a ubiquitous wall decoration in teenagers' rooms. Thus the public and the show's producer, Spelling-Goldberg, were shocked when she announced after the series' first season that she was leaving television's No. 5-rated series to star in feature films. (Cheryl Ladd became the new "Angel" on the series.) But the movies turned out to be a platform where Fawcett was never able to duplicate her TV success. Her first star vehicle, the comedy-mystery "Somebody Killed Her Husband," flopped and Hollywood cynics cracked that it should have been titled "Somebody Killed Her Career." The actress had also been in line to star in "Foul Play" for Columbia Pictures. But the studio opted for Goldie Hawn instead. "Spelling-Goldberg warned all the studios that that they would be sued for damages if they employed me," Fawcett told The Associated Press in 1979. "The studios wouldn't touch me." She finally reached an agreement to appear in three episodes of "Charlie's Angels" a season, an experience she called "painful." She returned to making movies, including the futuristic thriller "Logan's Run," the comedy-thriller "Sunburn" and the strange sci-fi tale "Saturn 3," but none clicked with the public. Fawcett fared better with television movies such as "Murder in Texas," "Poor Little Rich Girl" and especially as an abused wife in 1984's "The Burning Bed." The last earned her an Emmy nomination and the long-denied admission from critics that she really could act. As further proof of her acting credentials, Fawcett appeared off-Broadway in "Extremities" as a woman who is raped in her own home. She repeated the role in the 1986 film version. Not content to continue playing victims, she switched type. She played a murderous mother in the 1989 true-crime story "Small Sacrifices" and a tough lawyer on the trail of a thief in 1992's "Criminal Behavior." She also starred in biographies of Nazi-hunter Beate Klarsfeld and photographer Margaret Bourke-White. "I felt that I was doing a disservice to ourselves by portraying only women as victims," she commented in a 1992 interview. In 1995, at age 50, Fawcett posed partly nude for Playboy magazine. The following year, she starred in a Playboy video, "All of Me," in which she was equally unclothed while she sculpted and painted. She told an interviewer she considered the experience "a renaissance," adding, "I no longer feel ... restrictions emotionally, artistically, creatively or in my everyday life. I don't feel those borders anymore." Fawcett's most unfortunate career moment may have been a 1997 appearance on David Letterman's show, when her disjointed, rambling answers led many to speculate that she was on drugs. She denied that, blaming her strange behavior on questionable advice from her mother to be playful and have a good time. In September 2006, Fawcett, who at 59 still maintained a strict regimen of tennis and paddleball, began to feel strangely exhausted. She underwent two weeks of tests and was told the devastating news: She had anal cancer. O'Neal, with whom she had a 17-year relationship, again became her constant companion, escorting her to the hospital for chemotherapy. "She's so strong," the actor told a reporter. "I love her. I love her all over again." She struggled to maintain her privacy, but a UCLA Medical Center employee pleaded guilty in late 2008 to violating federal medical privacy law for commercial purposes for selling records of Fawcett and other celebrities to the National Enquirer. "It's much easier to go through something and deal with it without being under a microscope," she told the Los Angeles Times in an interview in which she also revealed that she helped set up a sting that led to the hospital worker's arrest. Her decision to tell her own story through the NBC documentary was meant as an inspiration to others, friends said. The segments showing her cancer treatment, including a trip to Germany for procedures there, were originally shot for a personal, family record, they said. And although weak, she continued to show flashes of grit and good humor in the documentary. "I do not want to die of this disease. So I say to God, `It is seriously time for a miracle,"' she said at one point. Born Feb. 2, 1947, in Corpus Christi, Texas, she was named Mary Farrah Leni Fawcett by her mother, who said she added the Farrah because it sounded good with Fawcett. She was less than a month old when she underwent surgery to remove a digestive tract tumor with which she was born. After attending Roman Catholic grade school and W.B. Ray High School, Fawcett enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin. Fellow students voted her one of the 10 most beautiful people on the campus and her photos were eventually spotted by movie publicist David Mirisch, who suggested she pursue a film career. After overcoming her parents' objections, she agreed. Soon she was appearing in such TV shows as "That Girl," "The Flying Nun," "I Dream of Jeannie" and "The Partridge Family." Majors became both her boyfriend and her adviser on career matters, and they married in 1973. She dropped his last name from hers after they divorced in 1982. By then she had already begun her long relationship with O'Neal. The couple never married. Both Redmond and Ryan O'Neal have grappled with drug and legal problems in recent years.

SOUNDBITE (English) Era Kessaris/Michael Jackson Fan "I was hoping that maybe he'd come to New York too. I would've paid anything to see him. (Reporter: What's his legacy?)

Outside of Penn Station, people reacted to the news of the singer's passing from a heart attack at age 50. "Very sad. I really, I really feel bad. I feel like crying myself," said Hugh Porter. Some expressed regret they would never get to see him in concert: "I was hoping that maybe he'd come to New York too. I would've paid anything to see him." The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper. Michael Jackson is survived by three children.

AP Television Santa Maria, Ca, 28 Feb 2005 28. Various of Jackson going into court MICHAEL JACKSON HAD HIS SHARE OF FINANCIAL WOES Michael Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer. He had the biggest selling record of all time, successful concert tours, and made savvy business decisions. But Jackson lived a lavish lifestyle that eventually caught up with him later in his career. The 50-year-old singer died Thursday (25 JUNE) of cardiac arrest. A major catalyst to the singer's lifestyle came from the mounting legal costs after acquired after being acquitted of child molestation in California in 2005. He has struggled to pay his debts, and was forced to give up the deed to his Neverland ranch. Last April, he went to court to halt the sale of 2,000 items taken from Neverland by Julien's Auctions. Martin Nolan from Julien's Auctions. "All of this stuff came from Michael Jackson and from his land, Neverland in the Santa Innes Valley in Santa Barbara, California." Some of these items were on display at the Hard Rock Caf? in New York City's Times Square. Among the items are a silver and white silk jacket worn during the Victory tour, his 1984 American Music Awards for "Thriller," and "Beat It," and a variety of capes, crowns, belts, and jewel-encrusted accessories. That auction was stopped at the last minute. In 2007, Jackson settled with another auction company after a warehouse full of his memorabilia at a failed storage facility was put on the block. Items included his signature black fedora, Tito Jackson's handwritten lyrics to the hit "ABC," Michael Jackson's black crested jacket and other awards. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - remains the biggest-selling album of all time, with more than 26 million copies. Jackson also owned most the Beatles song catalog in a venture with Sony records. Jackson was set to play 50 concerts in London this summer.
