Unlike Jack Bauer, the rogue U.S. government agent he portrays on the hit TV series "24," actor Kiefer Sutherland didn't resort to life-threatening torture to make honeyhoney's Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe sweat up a storm, because he held their fate in his hands.   Equal parts country and rock, folk and blues, vintage swing and torch ballads, honeyhoney's Ben Jaffe and Suzanne Santo "are a dynamic duo of Southern fried chicken and waffles."

Musical improv master Wayne Brady is happy to report his show in Vegas "Making It Up" is as strong as ever. And they say these are dire times! Not for the people who like to laugh! "I've been doing the show in Vegas for the last two years, so you can pretty much say it's going well. You don't stick around if something is sucking," notes the multi-talent who rose to fame on "Whose Line ... [full story]

DEAR STACY: I would like to know what other TV or movie roles have been played by the beautiful Bridget Regan from "Legend of the Seeker." — Keith F., N.Y.   Bridget Regan  DEAR KEITH: Clearly the 27-year-old actress from San Diego is making her mark as Kahlan — a woman with the power to make men confess their sins — on the syndicated "Legend of the Seeker" series based on Terry Goodkind's popular "Sword of Truth" ...

If all has gone according to plan, Kristen Bell was wrapping up a whirlwind trip to Washington, D.C. last Friday, having met with White House and Senate staffers to press the case of children who are being abducted and forced to become soldiers in Uganda. The "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" star has taken their plight to heart in a big way.   She'll also be present at Saturday's child soldier rescue rally in Santa Monica, Calif. Organized ... [full story]

Bret Easton Ellis needs a new decade. The author of "Less Than Zero" made his literary fortune dissecting the nihilistic 1980s as if it were a good-looking corpse — the Great Gatsby with hair mousse. But the filmed adaptation of "The Informers" finds Ellis with his dullest blade, peering into the hollow souls of several upscale Los Angelenos and finding that, yes, rootless, spoiled and amoral people tend to be unhappy. Is that really all ... [full story]

"State of Play" is part political conspiracy thriller, part ode to old-style newspaper journalism, but neither part is coherent. It's in a state of disarray.   RATINGS GUIDE: 4 STARS - Excellent. 3 STARS - Worthy. 2 STARS - Mixed. 1 STAR - Poor. 0 - Forget It (a dog.)  Scottish director Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland") bangs out a run-of-the-mill picture, based on an admired BBC miniseries, that opens with a thrilling splash of ...

A lot of folks say they like to keep it real, that they want authenticity and straight talk. Yet when someone actually does it, there is hell to pay. Welcome to the world of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who, since she answered a question regarding same-sex marriage in the Miss USA pageant April 19, has been attacked savagely by those who oppose what she had to say. Leading the burn-her-at-the-stake parade is media opportunist Perez ... [full story]

The Georgia Dome, home of the Atlanta Falcons football team, was recently crowded with cheering fans and adrenaline-filled competitors. A thrilling competition crowned new champions. But this was not a football game. It was a robotics competition for high school students interested in engineering, a program that now attracts about 200,000 student-competitors and nearly 100,000 volunteers. Known as FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), this program demonstrates that there is no shortage ... [full story]

After opening the door to a truth commission to investigate torture by the CIA of al-Qaida subjects, and leaving the door open to prosecution of higher-ups, President Obama walked the cat back. He is now opposed to a truth commission. That means it is dead. He is no longer interested in prosecutions. That means no independent counsel — for now. Sen. Harry Reid does not want any new "commissions, boards, tribunals, until we find out ... [full story]

Nobody tunes into a beauty pageant and expects a public-policy discussion that could be mistaken for C-SPAN. The long-standing perception about the question-and-answer section at the end is that the aspiring beauty queens will uniformly voice their strong support for world peace, an end to hunger, and free lipstick and mascara for the homeless. The latest Miss USA pageant on NBC illustrated that beauty pageants are becoming a dangerous culture-war minefield. It doesn't matter how ... [full story]
