"Dave," said the voice on the phone, "it's Billy. How'd you like to be my brother?" So began the transformation of David Paymer into Stan Yankelman, older brother and agent to Billy Crystal's Buddy Young Jr. in "Mr. Saturday Night." The story charts the career of a semi-successful stand-up comic (Crystal) and the brothers' relationship, from adolescent living-room performances to a quiet park bench more than 50 years later.

In "The Hurricane," David Paymer plays a criminal defense attorney, a small but typically pivotal supporting role. In the film, which opened Wednesday, the respected actor again plays a character key to the film's plot, but one who doesn't catch the bad guy or get the girl, and it's emblematic of why some moviegoers know Paymer's face more than his name.

Rather than shift into reruns, as is normally done when the November ratings sweeps are over, ABC said Wednesday it plans to replace "NYPD Blue" in December and January with a new crime drama called "Line of Fire." "NYPD Blue" will return to the 10 p.m. Tuesday slot with new episodes in February. "Line of Fire," from writer-producer Rod Lurie, is about the battle between FBI agents and an organized crime family. The cast includes David Paymer, Leslie Bibb and Anson Mount.

For Arthur Hiller, being president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences means never having to say you're sorry. Or having anyone to personally thank on Oscar night. One could at least come to those conclusions in a week when (a) Hiller is reelected to a fourth term as academy president, and (b) Warner Bros.

Jonathan Parker's "Bartleby" is an ambitious attempt to update the 1853 Herman Melville novella "Bartleby the Scrivener." It's not a bad idea, and it has the right cast and the right look. But, sad to say, it lacks the pace and energy to make it come alive and therefore remains more of a literary conceit than a movie. David Paymer, who also narrates, plays the Boss, heading up a public records firm that has just landed the contract to maintain the records of a small city.
