While Hilary Swank was making the inspirational drama "Freedom Writers" with writer-director Richard LaGravenese, he told her that for her next film, "I want you to do something lighter and funny and girlie. You are such a girl, and you are so funny." Despite having won best actress Oscars for 1999's "Boys Don't Cry" and 2004's "Million Dollar Baby" -- or maybe because of it -- the whippet-slender 33-year-old Swank knows she isn't the first person who comes to mind for a romantic comedy.

The comparisons will be inevitable between the Starz drama "Magic City" and AMC's critical darling "Mad Men. " So let's get a few of them out of the way. Each is populated with drop-dead-gorgeous dames and rakishly handsome fellas. Both take place in the glamorous Rat Pack era — late '50s, early '60s — when stylish folks drove cars the size of luxury liners and ordered highballs for lunch. They name-check real historical figures like the Kennedys and Frank Sinatra, and social upheaval bubbles in the background.

Acting couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are the latest owners of a California ranch house in the Pacific Palisades that has been capturing the imagination of A-listers since Gregory Peck bought it in 1947. The pair recently purchased the nearly 8,800-square-foot home from producer Brian Grazer for $17.55 million, according to public records. Built in the late 1930s, the Cliff May-designed low-slung house was innovative for its time and today is considered typical of his trademark designs.

They'd better both be dead. "Grey's Anatomy" limped to its season finale Thursday with a two-hour episode as we all waited in less-than-breathless anticipation to see if the endless and increasingly monotonous rumors were true and both T.R. Knight (who plays George O'Malley) and Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) were leaving the show.

There is something kind of groovy about "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. " The mellow yellow comedy stars Jane Fonda as a 70-something hippie with a passion for pot and protest suddenly dealing with the prodigal daughter who is back in the picture after revolting against that lifestyle years ago. It's not "On Golden Pond" by any stretch, but it is nice to have Fonda back in the fractious family way. Written by first-timers Christina Mengert and...
