Given Brian Cook's negligible shot-blocking ability (an average of 0.4 blocks a game for his career), one wonders why he was even attempting to block a shot in a pickup game. As Clint Eastwood famously stated as Dirty Harry: "A man's got to know his limitations." ERIC STEPANS Riverside

LAS VEGAS -- By Thursday afternoon, exhibitors' eyes were beginning to glaze over after days of watching movie clips. But Warner Bros., the last studio to put on a presentation for movie theater owners at the annual conference, came prepared to wake them up. The studio flew more in more stars than any of its rivals, bringing big guns like Clint Eastwood and Channing Tatum onto the Colosseum stage. Some handled it better than others. Adam Sandler, no stranger to performing in front of a live audience, made jokes at the expense of his pregnant “Blended” co-star Drew Barrymore, pointing at her baby bump and asking “who did this” to the actress.

The firing of Iowa State football Coach Jim Criner on Wednesday night climaxed a stormy 21-month period that began when he kicked his two starting wide receivers off the team, included the arrest of several players on criminal charges and an NCAA investigation of his program. Criner's troubles started in February of 1985 when he dismissed second-team All-American Tracy Henderson and Robbie Minor from the team for unspecified disciplinary reasons.

When promoting a big-budget summer film, there are plenty of stops at which movie stars are expected to shill their product. Actors hole up in fancy hotels for press junkets, trade banter with David Letterman and fly overseas to walk red carpets. But many also appear at a less talked-about event: CinemaCon, a Las Vegas conference attended by about 3,000 movie theater owners, studio executives and concession distributors. This week, some of Hollywood's biggest names - Clint Eastwood, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz, Dwayne Johnson, Adam Sandler - will head to Caesars Palace to show off footage from their coming movies and mingle with exhibitors.

In the afternoons, there's a hush and warm amber glow in Clint Eastwood's office, which, unlike other bungalows at the Warner Bros. studio lot, has a rustic feel and furniture that manages to be just as practical as it is stylish. All of that suits the 78-year-old Hollywood icon who started off his career as John Wayne but seems to be finishing it as John Ford.

Movie star Clint Eastwood ruined the career of his former girlfriend, actress Sondra Locke, by getting her a movie development deal in return for calling off a palimony suit, and then using his influence to block her from actually making any films, Locke's attorney contended Wednesday. "This deal with Warner Bros. was a sham.

The top-grossing films of Clint Eastwood's career aren't his Dirty Harrys or his odes to the West. They're his odes to silliness--and orangutans. "Every Which Way But Loose" (1978) sold $80 million in tickets. Its sequel, "Any Which Way You Can" (1980), grossed $70 million. Since then, his domestic grosses have actually been in decline, though the films have remained profitable. His last Dirty Harry title, "The Dead Pool" (1988), sold $37.8 million worth of tickets.

It is a safe bet that few women ever wanted to mother Clint Eastwood. The steely, narrowed eyes. The rugged jawline. The thin-lipped sneer. This is the face of a man to save the homestead from marauding Indians, to stare down an outlaw in a saloon. But not to cuddle. Now, take Paul McCartney--he of the doe eyes, chipmunk cheeks and teddy bear chin. Ten thousand teeny-boppers can't be wrong. The man is adorable.

Andy Griffith's death on Tuesday meant the most prominent cast member of the landmark "Andy Griffith Show" had finally departed. Costar Don Knotts preceded Griffith in death in 2006 and Frances Bavier (who played Aunt Bea) died in 1989. Many of Mayberry's older residents have been long gone, such as Floyd the barber (Howard McNear) in 1969 and Otis the drunk (Hal Smith) in 1994. But fans of "The Andy Griffith Show" can take heart that the streets of Mayberry haven't gone completely empty.

Never mind that Clint Eastwood was about to receive the prestigious Hank Award from Quincy Jones. Or that he was going to preside with Postmaster General John E. Potter over the unveiling of a commemorative stamp honoring his late friend, composer Henry Mancini. It was his stint as a former mayor of Carmel that had members of the media popping what became the Burning Question during an interview op at the fourth annual Mancini Musicale benefit for the Henry Mancini Institute.

At 83 years old, Clint Eastwood is still playing the hero, even when he's not on in front of the camera. At a volunteer party Wednesday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Eastwood, who has played in the event and now serves as the chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, saved the life of tournament director Steve John by performing the Heimlich manuever. "I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work," John said, according to the Associated Press.

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, performing the Heimlich maneuver on the event's chief executive at a dinner to honor volunteers. “I saw that look in his eyes and saw that look of panic people have when they see their life passing before their eyes,” Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone , the local newspaper. The event's director, Steve John, was snacking on hors d'oeuvres Wednesday night when a piece of cheese got stuck in his throat, setting the stage for Eastwood's rescue.

Clint Eastwood had a "make my day" attitude about Hollywood agents, including his own representative, Leonard Hirshan. "If he didn't return a call, he would have been history!" the screen tough guy said this week. But then Eastwood laughed and said, sadly, "I'm just joking. Lenny always returned a call. " Hirshan was Eastwood's agent for more than 50 years, perhaps a record in Hollywood for a major star. It started when Hirshan was already an established agent with the all-powerful William Morris Agency, where over the years he represented stars such as Jack Lemmon, Angela Lansbury, Walter Matthau and Sophia Loren, and also negotiated film deals for the likes of Elvis Presley.

The Internal Revenue Service will seize almost anything to pay off back taxes--even a collection of whiskey bottles. John Simpson, an IRS revenue officer in Riverside, called us with such a tale. He said two owners of a San Bernardino bar, behind in their taxes, recently saw their establishment padlocked by revenue agents. Included in the inventory were 89 collectible decanters, Simpson said, of which 87 were produced by Lionstone Distilleries and two by Jim Beam Distilling Co.

Update: This is one of the most anticipated games of the season for the Galaxy, especially after star forward Clint Dempsey signed with Seattle last month. The question is whether Dempsey will be able to face off against the Galaxy's all-time leading scorer Landon Donovan - Dempsey's teammate on the U.S. national team - because Donovan is nursing a sore right ankle and was questionable for the game.

A life-size cutout of Clint Eastwood in cowboy garb won't be the only likeness of a western star to become Glendale city property. In a unanimous vote Tuesday, the City Council approved accepting the donation of five western-inspired art pieces, including the one of Eastwood, from a Los Angeles artist who had originally secretly placed some of the cutouts in the hills above Glendale. "This is the kind of organic art that I really respond to," said Councilwoman Laura Friedman.
