    After Shweddy Balls Ice Cream, 10 Other SNL Sketches That Need to Be Food

    ​Ben & Jerry's announced its production of "Schweddy Balls" flavored ice cream today,  "vanilla ice cream with a hint of rum" and flecked with big ol' fudge balls. Sounds pretty tasty, actually. More importantly, it got us thinking, which we try to do sparingly: What other Saturday Night ... More >>

    Win, Win: Brinker Forum Swaps John Travolta for Carl Reiner, Martin Short

    John Travolta was supposed to be in town September 9 to speak at the Brinker International Forum, which'll take place at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.

    Dallas Lives!

    John Travolta is still the only cast member in The Movie That Will Not Go Away. Say it ain't so: Dallas -- the movie that will not die -- is still alive, despite the best efforts of several screenwriters and two now-former directors (Robert Luketic and Gurinder Chadha) who couldn't get the corpse ou ...

    Don't Mess with Texas' Film Bidness

    Upon further review, Bottle Rocket's easily the best movie ever shot in Dallas -- and Bob Musgrave, at left, is the best thing about it. If you shoot a movie in Texas that makes Texas look bad, well, bubba, don't expect the state to pony up any dough for yer pitcher. That's the long and short of thi ... More >>

    "In the Heart of Old Humid Dallas..."

    So, the big-screen Dallas was dead as of last week. Now, it's back on, according to John Travolta, who says he's meeting with a new director -- that'd be the third, by the way -- and hoping to start shooting here and elsewhere in early '08. Fine. This is even better: Yesterday, some dude posted to Y ... More >>

    J.R. Wants to Stay in Florida

    Wuh-oh. Don't think the mayor's gonna like this bit o' bad news. Seems John Travolta, tapped to star as J.R. Ewing in the oddly anticipated big-screen version of Dallas, wants to film the movie near his home. In Florida. "John Travolta loves his adopted hometown of Ocala so much he hopes to film s ...
