Cougar Town

Courteney Cox cast her vote for no "Friends" reunion in a sit-down Monday night with David Letterman.  So that makes it pretty much, oh, everyone in the cast of the classic sitcom who has come down on the "no freakin' way" side of the reunion argument in recent years. Maybe it's time to stop asking the question, people? At least Cox, who's reportedly now living with  musician boyfriend Johnny McDaid, pulled out a cute example of why "it's not gonna happen": It was the one with the dinner party.  "Let me tell you something: There's six friends and I've been trying to put together a cast dinner for 10 years.

Courteney Cox's divorce from David Arquette has been finalized. The "Cougar Town" star and "Scream" actor finally ended their marriage Wednesday when a L.A. County Superior Court judge entered a final judgment for the divorce, according to TMZ, which ended their 12-year marriage just shy of what would have been their 14-year wedding anniversary. Arquette, who had been separated from wife since 2010, filed for divorce the same day as Cox in June 2012. The two met on the set of the horror flick "Scream" in 1996 and were married in June 1999.

Josh Hopkins plays Grayson Ellis opposite Courteney Cox's Jules Cobb on ABC's "Cougar Town," and their on-screen chemistry is worth watching. "I guess I have what you might call a contentious relationship with Jules," said Hopkins. "Grayson is sort of the neighbor who pushes her buttons, and she pushes his right back. But there's definitely an underlying attraction too." You can also catch Josh on Saturday night in Lifetime's holiday movie "12 Men of Christmas" starring Kristin Chenoweth.

Temple Grandin HBO, $26.98 Nearly every parent of an autistic child knows about Temple Grandin, the bestselling author and brilliant agricultural scientist who's been a model for what children on that spectrum can become. Playing Grandin in this HBO biopic, Claire Danes captures Grandin's braying monotone, stooped posture and default defensive stance to other people, but she also conveys her sense of humor and how she makes connections others can't. Some of the movie's aesthetic choices border on cliché, but Danes' performance is far from conventional, and director Mick Jackson supports her work with a visual style and sound design that reveals how Grandin perceives the world.

In the most revealing and promising science fiction premiere of the fall television season, a female alien lands largely unannounced in a predominantly male universe. She is teased and goaded or sometimes treated as if invisible or worthless. She quickly comes to understand that the rules of this foreign territory were not written with her kind in mind and she will likely spend the rest of her time in this place withering under its harsh rules or gamely attempting to teach her unwilling hosts about the superior way of life led by her people.

Courteney Cox has been famous for 25 years. Yes -- Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" video, which caused "who's-that-girl?" attention to be directed toward the blue-eyed, short-black-haired, T-shirt-and-jeans wearing Cox, made its MTV debut in July 1984. At the time, the then-20-year-old Cox, who had spent her childhood in Mountain Brook, Ala., a suburb of Birmingham, was working at a music agency in New York and doing some modeling. Her career after that -- "Family Ties," "Ace Ventura," "Friends," "Scream" -- has made her a key part of several pivotal television shows and movies of the last quarter century.

Like some other residents of this small town, Mary Elizabeth Goodwyn doesn't go outside after dark much anymore. Goodwyn, 81, used to welcome the dusk under a red maple tree in her frontyard every evening, but that was before cougars started showing up in Blackstone -- or at least in Blackstone's newspaper. Since 2003, the Courier-Record has published at least 15 articles on cougar sightings in town and in the neighboring 41,000-acre Army National Guard training base. Wildlife officials say that except for a known population of 100 in Florida, the large cats -- also called mountain lions, pumas, panthers and the fitting "ghost cats" -- were wiped out in the eastern United States by 1900.

Courteney Cox and her ex-husband, David Arquette, have listed their Beverly Hills home for $19.5 million. Nothing says celebrity like a listing that pops up on the Multiple Listing Service with a zero for the street address and an “unavailable” assessor's parcel number. The property had been quietly shopped as a pocket listing, according to Real Estalker . The five-bedroom home, on nearly an acre, was designed by modernist architect A. Quincy Jones and built in 1959. The one-story house features a center hall, a den/office and 5½ bathrooms.
