Meet Colt Prattes: He's the young man who costars with Pink in the video the pop star released Tuesday, for her new single "Try. " Sensual, stunning and a bit sad, "Try" has a fiercely choreographed interpretation of the Apache dance, one that's earned praise for Pink and the able-bodied Prattes.

When the offbeat BBC cooking show "Two Fat Ladies" was given a green light in 1996, costar Clarissa Dickson Wright did not have the highest hopes. "I found it very hard to believe," she later wrote, "and thought perhaps it might be a cult series with a moderate but good audience. We had no idea. " It quickly became an immense hit - on both sides of the Atlantic. In the U.S., where it made its debut in 1997, "Two Fat Ladies" helped grease Food Network's ascent to a cable TV powerhouse, earning top prime-time ratings that made Dickson Wright and co-host Jennifer Paterson bona fide, if improbable, celebrities.

"Friends" racked up 63 Emmy nominations during the decade it pillaged pop culture and reigned as a Thursday night television mainstay on NBC. Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow each received six nominations and each won once. Their costar Courteney Cox? Never nominated. Not once. To which, the only reasonable reply is: What the heck? Playing the group's mother hen, Monica Geller, Cox took a character loaded with obsessive-compulsive quirks and a goofy, overly competitive nature and fashioned a flesh-and-blood woman.

While it was interesting reading John Horn's story about how the creators of the movie "Up" developed the plot of the movie ("Up, Up and Away," May 10), he missed a very significant element of the production: The costar of the film is an overweight Asian American boy. So in addition to praising the studio for telling the story of a senior citizen (an often overlooked demographic of society), kudos should be given to Disney/Pixar for not shying away from using a person of color -- who also didn't fit the ultra-thin model of attractiveness foisted upon us by the media -- to costar in their big budget film.

For years, decades even, Liam Neeson was an action hero hidden in plain sight. Yes, he was an impressive 6-foot-4, with the rangy physical grace of the former amateur boxing champion still visible, but the Oscar nominee for "Schindler's List" could put you away with his acting. Was it necessary or even prudent to have him throttle evildoers with his bare hands? FOR THE RECORD: "Non-Stop": A review of "Non-Stop" in the Feb. 28 Calendar section said the movie opens with air marshal Bill Marks (played by Liam Neeson)

Ralph Waite, best known for starring in the CBS series "The Waltons" from 1972 to 1981, died Thursday at his home in Palm Desert, Calif., at the age of 85.  The actor played John Walton Sr., the kind-hearted patriarch of a large, poor family living in rural Virginia in the Great Depression. The wholesome series, which also starred Michael Learned as his wife, Olivia, and Richard Thomas as his eldest son John-Boy, famously ended with a vignette in which the family said goodnight as they turned off the lights.

Sometimes, when adapting history for the big screen, a few fabrications are required. Take, for example, Irving Rosenfeld, the schlubby Bronx huckster Christian Bale plays in the period caper "American Hustle. " A consummate swindler with a fondness for jewel-toned velvet jackets and an outrageously bad toupee, the character is inspired by real-life con man Melvin Weinberg. But the actor is careful to point out that they are not the same person. "Mel would absolutely kick me ... if I ever said it was him," Bale, 39, said with a grin.

When Tom Hanks first encountered his "Captain Phillips" co-stars Barkhad Abdi, Faysal Ahmed, Mahat M. Ali and Barkhad Abdirahman, he didn't get to shake their hands or exchange pleasantries; instead, he found himself staring down the barrels of their AK-47s. The Somali actors play the quartet of pirates who hijack the cargo ship Maersk Alabama in the Paul Greengrass-directed thriller based on a real incident in 2009. At the  Envelope Screening Series , Hanks, who plays the title role, said Greengrass purposely kept the Somali actors away from Hanks and the rest of the cast before filming in order to mirror the real-life dynamic of the surprise attack.

- In "Blue Is the Warmest Color," Adèle Exarchopoulos plays a French student who has an intensely passionate, excruciatingly painful relationship with an older woman (Léa Seydoux). Making the film, she says, was much the same. "He changed my life," Exarchopoulos said of writer-director Abdellatif Kechiche, who based the story on the first half of Julie Maroh's graphic novel. "Not because of this movie, but because of the experience. " The experience, for all involved, by all accounts, seems to have been a rocky one, but the reviews for the October release have been strong, especially for Exarchopoulos and Seydoux, who shared the acting prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
