Well done is the website for American Gangster. The images, writing and music are an event unto themselves. When I read the cast list the word “impressive” easily comes to mind. Denzel Washington [photo], Russell Crowe, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Cuba Gooding Jr., Josh Brolin, Ted Levine, Armand Assante, John Ortiz, John Hawkes, Rza, Ruby Dee, and Common. Tonight the top of the cast will be interviewed by Charlie Rose. If you miss it for any un-Godly reason, here’s where you can see it in its entirety.

Barry Bonds makes it clear that he won’t go to Cooperstown if a certain asterisk-bearing ball is there. Innocent until proven guilty is what I say. Isn’t that the law of the land?  

Aiight, back to film. “You can’t exchange family.” That’s the tagline from This Christmas heading to theaters this month. Sigh. Just another stellar cast. Loretta Devine, Delroy Lindo, Idris Elba, Regina King, Sharon Leal, Lauren London, Columbus Short, Chris Brown, Laz Alonzo, Keith Robinson, Mekhi Phifer, and David Banner. Beautiful group shot on the website. A bright-faced family… made in Hollywood. 

Who doesn’t possess the knowledge that John David Washington plays for the Saint Louis Rams? Well Jay Leno brought up the matter last night on The Tonight Show with guest Denzel Washington, father of John David.
Denzel: They’re 0 and 8. The Rams are 0 and 8. They’re 0 and 8. They’re 0 and 8. I’m not saying my boy should play. I’m not saying he could turn things around. I’m not saying that, America.
Jay: But you are saying he couldn’t do any worse! 

Ah November is here. That time of year when network programmers put on their best for the “sweeps” ratings period, and local affiliates try to scare the living daylights out of you. Case in point our CBS station is running a news special on fire safety entitled: Get Out Alive. 

Some bill it as the “Clash of the Undefeated.” But whatever your stripe, Sunday’s game between the Colts and Patriots is hyped to the max. Both Tony Dungy and Bill Belichick are trying to pass their teams off as the underdog.

For all you muscleheads, and those who love them, here’s a little wisdom from a popular guitarist and bandleader. “You don’t have to eat a lot of beef or chicken to keep your muscle mass up,” says Kevin Eubanks, who has been featured in major muscle magazines such as Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Fitness and Flex.

One of A&E’s top-rated programs has been shutdown. Dog The Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman was not only caught on tape using the n-word repeatedly, but the recordist and financial opportunist is none other than his son, Tucker Chapman 

To all parents of enterprising children: Never underestimate the value of a good education.
