Jay Roach thinks he's a fraud. Sure, he may have directed two of the most successful comedies of the 1990s--"Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" and its sequel, "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me." And now he's gotten to work with no less an esteemed duo as Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in "Meet the Parents," which is getting terrific reviews in advance of its nationwide opening Friday.

KEVIN SPACEY and Denis Leary have a history of reunions. On this midsummer day, the two have gathered at HBO's Manhattan offices to talk about their work on the Emmy-nominated television film "Recount." It's an easy discussion, one that seems to be simply picking up from where they left off the last few times they've worked together, including 1994's "The Ref" -- "one of the surprising" Jerry Bruckheimer-Don Simpson executive-produced films, Spacey says with a little bit of archness.

As Republicans wage a sharply divisive presidential nominating contest, HBO is preparing to release a television film on the 2008 ascent of then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin that seems sure to reopen the wounds of that lost campaign and reignite controversy over Palin's fitness for office and the wisdom of putting her on the ticket. "Game Change," based on the 2010 book of the same name by two journalists, is not due to premiere on the pay-cable channel until March 10, but already on Friday Palin's supporters were hitting back at its depiction of her as woefully unprepared to be a national candidate or be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Footage is shown of the people waiting hours to meet her, including one rather large and nondescript woman who looks straight at the camera and says: "I have five kids.
