Political blogs are buzzing about Sarah Palin appearing on "Saturday Night Live" tonight. It looks like Gov. Palin might have a difficult time in front of the live audience and hot lights -- and she has yet to see a script!
Palin spoke with talk show host Neal Boortz Friday morning on his syndicated radio program. She told Boortz she had not seen a copy of the show's script, "They haven't even hinted about what that script is going to say." Will Palin be improvising? The Alaska governor isn't worried. She said appearing on "SNL" would give her the chance to "rise above the political shots that we take."
The Republican vice-presidential candidate told the press on Friday she was appearing on the show this weekend. Earlier in the week, running mate John McCain said the 'SNL' spot was a go, but NBC has yet to confirm Palin will be on the show. On Friday, a spokesperson for the show said, "We're not talking."
Tonight's episode will no doubt have a political theme. Guest host Josh Brolin is currently appearing as George W. Bush on the big screen. The Bush biopic "W." opened Friday and stars a wig-wearing Brolin with a thick Texas drawl.
Despite a recent arrest following a bar brawl on location in Louisiana, Josh Brolin was out on the town and posed for pictures with actress Melissa Leo at a party following the premiere of "Frozen River."
Josh Brolin, in Louisiana playing George W. Bush in a film, was arrested this weekend after his alleged involvement in a bar fight in Shreveport, and is seen here in a mugshot. Not very presidential!
The star was busted at a local bar, Stray Cats, after reportedly interfering with the arrest of another patron who was being cited for public intoxication. Brolin has been on location in Shreveport filming Oliver Stone's new flick "W."
Josh received rave reviews for his latest role in "No Country for Old Men." He is married to actress Diane Lane, and has two kids, Trevor and Eden, from a previous marriage. His father, James Brolin, is married to Barbra Streisand.
Director Oliver Stone has announced plans to make a movie about President George W. Bush and has cast Josh Brolin in the lead.
"Bush" is set for production in April and will hit theaters in November - right at the moment that a new leader takes the White House.
Stone told Daily Variety that he'll make "a fair, true portrait" of Bush and will focus on his youth, his conversion to Christianity and his relationship with his dad, President George H. W. Bush.
"It will contain surprises for Bush supporters and his detractors," said Stone.
Brolin "has the same drive and charisma that Americans identify with Bush, who has some of that old-time movie-star swagger," said Stone.
Hey there... this'll be fun. Look at this as the "what you didn't or couldn't see on Extra" blog. I get to share so much more while I'm out and about interviewing actors for my job, and doing the red carpet thing. You get a good sense of it when you watch our show, but there's so much more that goes on, which hopefully I'll be able to share with you here ongoing. So, here goes....
Been a busy couple of days despite the cancellation of the Golden Globes. Spent Saturday morning with Diane Lane -- spectacular -- and not just because of her beauty -- but her brains, too. Smart lady. And truly in love with her man, Josh Brolin. So much so she's "this close" to saying she's going to retire, without actually retiring. She's going to scale back her work tremendously, though, to be a stay-at-home wife and Mom. She told me IF she used the word "retire" then of course, the greatest role of her lifetime would be offered (like a Scarlett O'Hara in 'Gone With the Wind') and then she'd be red-faced and have to come OUT of retirement... I've interviewed Diane before, and she's always, without question, an extreme pleasure. Never, ever any pretense.
He's getting major critical buzz for his roles in "No Country For Old Men" and the Golden Globe nominated "American Gangster."
Now Josh Brolin is coming to "Extra" to open up about his marriage to Diane Lane, moonlighting as a day trader and the frightening motorcycle crash that almost cost him his breakout role.
