Joe Morris, one of the New York Giants' Super Bowl heroes, is not the best athlete in his family--not even the best football player--says younger brother Mike. Those honors belong to the youngest of the four Morris brothers, Jamie, according to Mike, a standout sprinter, who ran in the 60-yard dash in the Millrose Games Friday night at Madison Square Garden, provided a sprained right knee does not sideline him.

Among the revivals and West Coast premieres that dominate our theatrical offerings, the startling phrase “world premiere” implies an exhilarating, possibly risky novelty: You can't help expecting pyrotechnics. But Rachel Bonds' “Five Mile Lake,” receiving its world premiere at South Coast Repertory, is a small, quiet play in which nothing particularly momentous happens. In fact, you may forget you're watching a play at all, and that the people in whose every fleeting expression you have become so deeply absorbed are actors reciting memorized lines.

Frank McCourt took the witness stand in his divorce trial Tuesday, a day on which the most riveting testimony shed light on the collapse of a marriage that lasted nearly 30 years. McCourt considered for months whether to sign a document that would have granted shared ownership of the Dodgers to his wife, Jamie. He said no on May 12, 2009, and later that day Jamie sent an e-mail to Leah Bishop, the attorney who had drafted the proposed document. Bishop's response: "You have only two tools at your disposal — a civil conversation with Frank or a nuclear bomb.

Slowly they return, the clean-shaven, square-jawed heroes of yore, displaced for so many years now by their darker, more intricately conflicted brethren - the detectives with one foot on either side of the law, the pill-popping acerbic doctors and philandering, power-mad family men. The broadcast networks pivoted first; the leads of shows like NBC's "Grimm," Fox's "Sleepy Hollow" and ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. " are good guys through and through. Now AMC, the fledgling powerhouse that branded itself with the moral ambiguity of "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad," and the bleak and ever-shifting convictions of "The Walking Dead," is entering the straight-up hero business.

What was he feeling? Thinking? We will never know for sure. After Adam Lanza slaughtered 26 people Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., he killed himself - and took his thoughts and emotions with him. Twenty of his victims were children, all of them first-graders who had never done a thing to him. What was in his heart and going through his mind while he fired the bullets that fell on them like hailstones from hell?...

As James Joyce or Eugene O'Neill could confirm, genius can exact a heavy price on one's loved ones. But what happens when one sacrifices all human concerns in heated service to a mediocre talent? Keith Bunin's brave and beautifully balanced play "The Credeaux Canvas" at the Little Victory, examines the essential nature of art and the problems that can arise when an artist ignores the human imperative.

If ever there were a movie betting on the idea that sex sells it is "Friends With Benefits," emphasis on the "benefits. " The naked truth? Slipping a buff Justin Timberlake and a toned Mila Kunis between the sheets as the naughty but nice romantic pair turns the heat up considerably in this happily never after tale. And yet, even with all their huffing and puffing, this very salty, often funny affair is never quite as satisfying as it should be. There was certainly the prospect of pleasure with Will Gluck in the director's chair.

The xx hasn't released a new album since "Coexist" in 2012, but the British electro-soul trio is having something of a moment nonetheless. For starters, the group is in New York nearing the end of a run of unique shows at the Park Avenue Armory in which it's playing nightly to audiences of approximately 40 people -- a different vibe, needless to say, than the xx's main-stage performances last year at Coachella. And then there's the new Coldplay single, " Magic ," which has been widely compared to the xx, and for good reason: With its spindly guitar line and gentle machine beat, the song sounds exactly like the xx. INTERACTIVE: Discover songs of L.A. Now the band's resident beatmeister, Jamie xx, has added to the proceedings with a solo tune posted online early Thursday.

After the box-office success of their comedy "Ride Along," Kevin Hart and director Tim Story are saddling up again. Hart is in talks to reunite with Story as well as team up with Jamie Foxx in the hitman movie "Black Phantom," according to a Variety report.

SOCHI, Russia - The team that bulldozed its way through the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament while averaging five goals a game exited the semifinals meekly, unable to score once. Team USA's speed was neutralized and its in-your-face attitude pushed right back in its own face by Canada, which had been pushed to the brink by Latvia - Latvia? - in the quarterfinals and has been subjected to daily roastings from armchair critics back home. In a dramatic turnaround, Canada raised its game to an art Friday.

Dear Amy: My two friends and I looked on Craigslist for a fourth roommate to share rent for the year at our house. We interviewed several people and settled on Jamie. Over time, it has become glaringly apparent that she must have some compulsive disorder because she does at least four loads of laundry a week. She runs the dishwasher daily, regardless of the load. Also, she keeps the thermostat at 78. We are concerned about energy costs. Jamie is extremely touchy, so how can we diplomatically but effectively broach the topic?

PARK CITY, Utah -- Michael Cera has embarked on some pretty quirky adventures in recent years - “Paper Heart,” or the collected canon of George Michael Bluth. But he's up for some serious noodling in “Crystal Fairy,” a new road trip dramatic comedy that helped open the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday night and is told in a mix of English and Spanish. (Cera speaks mostly the former.) For one thing, the film was shot in Chile, over a period of 12 days, with nothing close to a script.
