    No one ever did undercover police work better or with more distinction than Joe Pistone, who you probably know better as "Donnie Brasco". Brasco became a household name in the 1980s as the undercover character played by Pistone, perhaps the ballsiest FBI agent ever. His six years undercover ultimately led to testimony that sent more than 200 mobsters to jail and - indirectly, several to their deaths. Pistone was famously portrayed by Johnny Depp in the 1997 movie, Donnie Brasco.

    Toni Tennille: A Memoir is an okay title for the Alabama native’s life story, but once you read it to the end, you might agree with me that "Toni Tennille: Happy at Last" is more fitting. I cannot deny that I had low expectations as I began reading the autobiography of this singer who I always adored as a teen and held on to over the decades as a guilty pop pleasure. The glamour, the celebrity friends, parties, etc. - ho-hum, we’ve certainly heard it all before. But trust me, you haven’t heard this story.

    I was studying Samaire Armstrong's IMDB page when I saw that she played "Emily" on several episodes of the HBO comedy Entourage. Why is that significant? Well, as fans of the long-running podcast Sex With Emily will recognize, a clip from Entourage helps open every episode of that show.

I am happy to report that the author has added several new colors to what we know of the band. If you love the Stones, you’ll find this tale irresistible. Hear more about it in this interview.

    Jonathan Katz is neither a doctor nor a cartoon. But he has been known to be one entertaining funnyman. His old show on Comedy Central, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, was perhaps best known for two elements during its six-year run: its squiggly animation and the remarkable list of guests who sat on Dr. Katz's couch, including Ray Romano, Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and Louis C.K. Now Katz is back with a new animated show, Explosion Bus.

    If I were the president of one of the broadcast networks, I'd take another look at signing up A.J. Jacobs to make a sitcom based on his life. (And yes, I know it's been tried before – as described by A.J. himself in Esquire magazine last fall, but this idea is worth a second look.) All the basic elements are there: A.J. is a neurotic, Jewish writer living in Manhattan with his grounded wife and naturally funny three boys, two of whom are twins.

    Imagine stretching a rubber band between the index finger on one hand and the thumb on the other. Now visualize pulling your fingers as far apart as possible. That's it...keep pulling...and pulling...OUCH! Somebody will always get hurt when you do that. That's what I pictured happening upstairs to Margo Martindale's character, Janice Trimble, in her new movie, Scalene. And that's just in the opening minutes.

    If you've been watching the AMC drama Breaking Bad over the years, you've had the privilege of seeing some extraordinary performances by the lead actors, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn. But some of the greatest moments have been of the smaller, more isolated type. Like the ones featuring my guest today, Mark Margolis, who plays - or should I say played - Hector "Tio" Salamanca. You remember Hector, the notorious, bloodthirsty bastard we met as an old man and later in flashbacks as a young badass.

    It's easy to point out that George Kennedy, in a career spanning five decades, worked with some of the greatest names in Hollywood history. Paul Newman. Cary Grant. Kirk Douglas. Frank Sinatra. Leslie Nielsen. Bettie Davis. Clint Eastwood. John Wayne. Maggie Smith. Peter Ustinov. Carol Burnett. David Niven.

    The ironic thing about Michelle Borth's role as Jamie, a woman whose fiancé won't commit to monogamy in the new HBO series "Tell Me You Love Me," is that she is the kind of sexy, intoxicating woman that could probably drive the best-intentioned married man to cheat on his wife.

    Of course there are stereotypes in Hollywood! Look up "Scary Mofos" in any dictionary and you'll find a picture of actor Danny Trejo. Even when he's smiling, he's frightening. (No disrespect, sir.) Mention his name in casual conversation and watch the visceral fear come rising up in someone's eyes. As the master thespian Jon Lovitz once said, "Acting!" Yeah, maybe.

    In addition to continuing in his role as Dotcom alongside Grizz Chapman as Tracy Jordan's posse on NBC's 30 Rock, comedian Kevin Brown's standup career has truly blossomed and it keeps him out on the road whenever Tina Fey doesn't need him on the award-winning sitcom.

    Mr. Media interviews Paige Howard. Yes, yes, Paige Howard is one of those Howards. Sister of Bryce - who played Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3, niece of Clint, granddaughter of Rance and, yup, daughter of Ron and Cheryl. That had to be said, I'm told, because Paige hasn't accrued enough screen credits yet where you wlll drop what you're doing when you hear the name "Paige Howard". But if you have time, take a look at her performance in a new film called Cheesecake Casserole.

    Back in '82, I used to be able to throw a pigskin a quarter mile. What actor doesn't dream of at least one role for which they will forever be remembered? For Jon Gries, no doubt, that character is "Uncle Rico" in the 2004 cult classic high school comedy Napoleon Dynamite. Uncle Rico is a ball of confusion, hard-packed with conflicting characteristics, the classic enigma hiding inside a mystery hiding in plain sight.

    There are two pictures on Tommy Roe’s website of him with The Beatles. I glanced at them the night before this interview and then moved on, looking for ideas about what to ask the man behind such immortal 1960s bubblegum hits as “Sheila", “Dizzy”, and “Jam Up and Jelly Tight". The Beatles knew Roe; they were one of the featured acts on his top-billed tour of the UK, and they recorded a cover of his number one hit from 1962, “Sheila". Tommy Roe’s had his first number one with “Sheila", of course, and subsequently charted a number of songs on the Top 10.

    Let me see. The last time I stopped what I was doing to listen a world class violinist was… Okay, it hasn't happened yet. But after watching Philippe Quint move gracefully between classic violin and pop-jazz in David Grubin's new indie film Downtown Express, it is definitely more likely to happen in the future.

    Kurt Andersen has one of those careers that makes him the envy of a lot of folks in media. The guy has had a fairly golden touch, starting with the birth of the late great humor magazine, Spy, which he co-founded with Graydon Carter and Tom Phillips. He's also been a columnist for The New Yorker and editor in chief of New York. And he currently hosts public radio's popular Studio 360, which has won a Peabody Award.

    Like a lot of bands from that era, The Cowsills soon disappeared from view - 1910 Fruitgum Company, anyone? - and I didn’t give them much thought, until last week, when I was invited to watch a new documentary film by Louise Palanker, Family Band: The Cowsills Story, about the real family behind the singing family. Joining me today to talk about his family, the band, and the documentary is Paul Cowsill. Paul still leads The Cowsills, but his day jobs are equally interesting.
