Dennis Hopper has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is canceling all travel plans to focus on treatment, his manager says. The 73-year-old actor and artist is being treated through a "special program" at USC, Sam Maydew said. Asked about Hopper's prognosis, Maydew said, "We're hoping for the best." He would not elaborate on the actor's condition. Hopper, who made "Easy Rider" in 1969 and has recently been appearing in the "Crash" TV series, was forced to cancel his appearance at an exhibition of his artwork and photography at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne.

"I was a beatnik, and then I was a hippie, and before that I was a bohemian," a sky-high Dennis Hopper confided to Merv Griffin on television one night in 1971, in a clip you can see on YouTube. On the opposite couch, Willie Mays uncomfortably refilled his glass of water and James Brolin sneered - Hopper certainly didn't belong to their worlds. But "San Francisco Giants legends" and "future husbands of Barbra Streisand" might be among the few groups in which Dennis Hopper could not claim membership.

One can be fairly certain that were Sylvester Stallone not an international superstar, his big and very bad paintings would have gotten absolutely no play. With Dennis Hopper, the opposite may well be true. Though Hopper did make the cover of Artforum magazine two times, it's been about 30 years now.

Dennis Hopper knew how to talk to reporters, if my memory of a 1990 Toronto Film Festival press conference is an accurate gauge. It was early one gray morning, and he was jawing about "The Hot Spot," a neo-noir thriller that he'd directed, starring Don Johnson and Virginia Madsen. The questions were friendly and the banter jocular and relaxed in the packed hotel conference room. Then someone asked Hopper about how he'd dealt over the years with the premature death of his friend and former colleague James Dean.

Katherine LaNasa plays a deliciously hard-edged, evil wife in the new TV series “Deception,” but at home in her Venice bungalow, she showcases a soft side influenced by her native New Orleans. “Being from New Orleans completely dominates my sense of style,” said the actress, who's also starring in “Jayne Mansfield's Car,” the forthcoming film directed by Billy Bob Thornton. “There is a drama and a funk to New Orleans. It's the last place people play it safe. They celebrate the vibrancy of life.” Following her divorce in 2010, LaNasa moved to the 950-square-foot bungalow to be near her son and his ill father, Dennis Hopper.

On the morning of Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy realized that their Fort Worth hotel suite featured an extraordinary array of artwork, including a painting by Vincent van Gogh and a bronze by Pablo Picasso. A group of prominent Fort Worth citizens had scrambled to put together the collection in the days leading up to the president's fateful Texas visit, transforming an otherwise plain suite into something special. Next year, almost all of those works the couple admired in their last private moments before President Kennedy was assassinated will be on display at the Dallas Museum of Art in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of his death.

There are terraced gardens and a swimming pool. Kilborn, 49, hosted "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" from 1999 to 2004 and was the original host of "The Daily Show.

Bert Schneider, the iconoclastic producer behind a trio of influential movies — "Easy Rider," "Five Easy Pieces" and "The Last Picture Show" — that captured the rootlessness and discontent of the late 1960s and '70s and became symbols of a new era in Hollywood, has died. He was 78. Schneider had been in failing health and died of natural causes Monday at Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles, said his daughter, Audrey Simon. The son of a Hollywood power broker — his father, Abraham, ran Columbia Pictures in the late 1960s — Schneider helped revitalize moviemaking in the "New Hollywood" movement in which directors, not studios, held the creative reins and made movies that embraced the sensibilities of the emerging counterculture.

Thanks to the conveniences of the wired world, Peter Winkler was able to write a book and find an agent and a publisher without ever having to leave his North Hollywood home. Winkler raced to produce the first biography of Dennis Hopper to come out after the actor died in May 2010. It was only when the book was on the shelves that his agent learned how he had done it. "My God, I had no idea," said Robert Diforio of Weston, Conn., who sold "Dennis Hopper: The Wild Ride of a Hollywood Rebel" to a small East Coast publisher, Barricade Books.

The exterior of Dennis Hopper's house, tucked away on a graffiti-tagged side street in Venice, is made of corrugated steel. It looks like the facade of a factory or a repair shop, just another gray-metal piece of industrial real estate, easy to miss in a run-down neighborhood of housing projects, junked cars and trash-strewn alleys. It's a rough part of town. There have been shootings a block away. There are gangs.

Gus Van Sant is a filmmaker who moves with notable ease between uncompromising independent work and crowd-pleasers, occasionally bringing elements of the two together, as he did with the high-profile "Milk. " His new romantic drama, "Restless," occupies a less successful middle ground. One part "Harold and Maude," two parts "Love Story" and two parts Oregon teen ennui, the film errs on the side of formula even as it carries the sheen and delicacy of something handmade. With the Portland-set feature, Van Sant delves yet again into the ache and beauty of youth, embodied by the always impressive Mia Wasikowska ("The Kids Are All Right," "Jane Eyre")

The on-the-market, off-the-market compound of actor-artist Dennis Hopper in Venice is back — redone by architect Brian Murphy and listed at $5,995,000. Murphy renovated the main house that he designed and three two-story loft-style town houses by architect Frank Gehry. Work included the kitchens, bathrooms and landscaping. The corrugated-steel-clad main house, built in 1987, has 4,900 square feet of living space. The town houses, built in 1981, range from 1,143 to 1,330 square feet.
