PAUL & AMY & DAVID & HELEN : A Starry Swap Meet

August 21, 1994|Robert Levine

I t was a cozy coincidence, even by Hollywood standards, a tantalizing partner-swapping involving four of TV's hottest stars taking a vacation hiatus to the big screen. "Mad About You" stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt, Emmy nominees for best actor and actress in a comedy series, were busy filming feature projects in Los Angeles and New York respectively, opposite fellow nominees Amy Brenneman and David Caruso from "NYPD Blue." Reiser stars in "Bye Bye, Love," above , a 20th Century Fox comedy due next year about divorced fathers; he plays opposite Brenneman, nominated for best supporting actress in a drama for her work in "NYPD Blue," on which she played David Caruso's ex-lover. Meanwhile Hunt plays Caruso's wife in Barbet Schroeder's "Kiss of Death," right , a crime thriller also for Fox. Caruso, nominated for best actor in a drama for "NYPD Blue," plays a man forced to infiltrate the New York criminal world. Of the apparent mate-swapping, Reiser says, "Actually, it wasn't so much of a coincidence--first they offered me a nomination (and) I said 'No thanks.' Then they told me Helen Hunt, David Caruso and Amy Brenneman would get one. . . ."
