"I would love to see it, and I think the cast would, too," says John Ratzenberger, who played lovable mailman Cliff Clavin on the NBC series. "The audience is still there." 

The show, which starred Ted Danson, Shelley Long, Kirstie Alley, Woody Harrelson, Rhea Perlman and George Wendt, ended in 1993 after 11 seasons and numerous awards including four Emmy wins for...

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award

Amy Adams Talks ‘Justice League,’ American Cinematheque Award
Amy Adams can rise to any challenge: sparkle as a princess, brawl like a Boston barmaid, dance with Muppets, kiss Superman, earn five Oscar nominations and hold her own against Meryl Streep — twice. Still, on Nov. 10, the deeply private, craft-driven actress will face a new test when Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, Chris Messina and Denis Villeneuve take the stage of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to praise her talents as the 31st recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.

Being lauded for her entire body of work is “a little overwhelming,” says Adams. “I tend to look at things piece by piece.”

As for the prospect of watching a montage of her entire filmography, Adams falls silent. “Yup,” she eventually says with the well-mannered equanimity of an actress who spent years doing dinner theater in Minnesota. Then she giggle-exhales.

Harvey Fierstein Sets the Record Straight (For Once): ‘I Ain’t Weinstein’

Harvey Fierstein Sets the Record Straight (For Once): ‘I Ain’t Weinstein’
Iconic gay playwright, actor, and producer Harvey Fierstein would like to get one thing straight (for the first time in his life): He is not Harvey Weinstein. Despite having the same first name and very similar last names, the raspy-voiced comedian is none too happy about being mistaken for the Hollywood heavyweight, especially following a slew of allegations about Weinstein’s decades long history of sexual assault.

Fierstein has been tweeting up some hilarious missives in his attempt to right the ship. “Harvey Weinstein is rumored to be in trouble & I am somehow getting flak as well! I get it. All Harveys look alike,” he wrote. “Guys, we’re mad at Harvey Weinstein, not Harvey Fierstein!” A few days later, he added: “Thanks to Weinstein’s horrible behavior I’ve been dubbed #theGoodHarvey on the internet. I appreciate the distinction [but can’t] I be #TheFabHarvey?”

The Best They Ever Looked: Kirstie Alley in “Loverboy”

If you are in your mid 30s or older and haven’t seen the movie Loverboy then you have some serious problems. It’s easily one of my favorite 80s movies of all-time (1989 to be exact) and actually hits home because I spent 3 summers as a pizza delivery boy. In any event it’s a comedy starring Patrick Dempsey as a college student trying to pay his tuition for college. He gets a job as a pizza delivery boy and like all pizza guy’s dreams, gets the ultimate pizza delivery order, a beautiful woman who wants more than just extra anchovies.
