Actor Ethan Suplee has sold his Studio City house for $1.6 million. Once home to Jane Fonda , the country English-style residence of 3,787 square feet was built in 1951 and sits on nearly an acre of wooded grounds with a detached office/guesthouse, a gym and a swimming pool. There are three fireplaces, seven bedrooms and three bathrooms. Suplee, 36, appeared in the action-adventure film "Unstoppable" (2010) and starred in "My Name Is Earl" (2005-09). He starred last year with Mariel Hemingway in "Rise of the Zombies" and appeared in the series "Men at Work" and "Raising Hope.

NBC'S comedy "My Name Is Earl" takes a deceptively simple premise and plays it for deceptively simple humor. Earl is a boldly mustachioed guy who took a few hundred wrong turns in his life, and has made a list to right those wrongs. He's accompanied on his quest by a cast of working-class antiheroes, including a man-child brother (Ethan Suplee) and a venomous beauty of an ex-wife (Jaime Pressly). Earl is played by Jason Lee, who is also one of the show's executive producers. Taking a break from filming on "Alvin and the Chipmunks," Lee -- in a rare clean-shaven moment -- discussed Earl's fans, his own plans and trying to make television a cinematic experience.

Those eager few who have been thirsting for a movie about the homosexual gang rape of a clown need wait no longer. From the cracking tarmac and peeling paint of a (really, really) depressed New Jersey suburb comes "Vulgar," an independent effort emanating out of the circle surrounding writer-director Kevin Smith ("Clerks," "Dogma"), who this time out settles for merely executive producing and, to use the term generously, acting.

SERIES School Pride: Each week, the new series' "spirit team" and celebrity guests descend on a run-down school and transform the entire campus into a showpiece designed to inspire its staff, students and the community at large. Up first, a middle school in Compton (8 p.m. NBC). Smallville: As the series logs its 200th episode, Lois (Erica Durance) talks Clark (Tom Welling) into attending their five-year high school reunion, but she's miffed when no one there remembers the five days she spent as a student in this new episode (8 p.m. KTLA)

That Americans worship their children only makes Billy Bob Thornton more deliciously, subversively funny as a tormenter of the young. He made them suffer in "The Bad News Bears," abused them in "Bad Santa" and is back in business as the nightmarish gym teacher of "Mr. Woodcock," a movie that commits sins of excess, except regarding Thornton. There's not nearly enough of him.

NBC appears to be betting its fourth-place farm on "My Name Is Earl." Billboards, bus ads, talking Entertainment Weekly ads. You can't stop at a red light without meeting Jason Lee's rogue-redneck mug over some obtuse but tempting tagline like: "Stole a car from a one-legged girl. I'm sorry." Unfortunately, all this corporate muscle behind the series deprives you from taking any ownership of the show's underdog qualities.

The Village Joaquin Phoenix, William Hurt Touchstone, $30 The 1999 "I see dead people" thriller, "The Sixth Sense," rightfully put its young writer/director M. Night Shyamalan on the map and turned him into a major Hollywood player. But his subsequent films have become increasingly self-important and portentous. The big twist at the end of "Sixth Sense" was a real corker, but his reveals in "Unbreakable" and "Signs" bordered on ludicrous.

IT was cold and very breezy on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton, even before the sun went down. What's a girl headed for the Golden Globes to do? Wear her strapless, backless dress and bare sandals anyway, and instruct her hairstylist to pin up her tresses so securely that even gale-force winds can't ruffle them. The Globes are the statuette season's opening act. That can mean the Big Gown will be saved for later, for the Academy Awards or a black tie bar mitzvah party at the Peninsula.
