Steven Starr's 1993 debut feature is a jaunty little movie that's full of surprises. Richard Edson has the title role as a brash Manhattan-based talent agent near the top of a profession he clearly loves, a man who seems content when a series of events affect his life more than he--or we--at first realize.

RICHMOND - For sheer memorability, the Toyota Owners 400 earned its place on the list of unforgettable Sprint Cup Series races at Richmond International Raceway. Crazy start. Twenty lead changes. Multiple car fires. Great beat-and-bang finish. The 400-lap, 300-mile race never failed to offer the kind of Saturday night short-track atmosphere so many fans crave, and even threw in a good fistfight afterward. Joey Logano emerged victorious in a multi-car battle for the checkered flag over the final laps, with Jeff Gordon second, Kyle Busch third, Brad Keselowski fourth and Matt Kenseth fifth.

A series in Sunday Calendar about what Times writers and contributors are listening to right now... Joey + Rory's "His and Hers," the third album from the husband-wife duo Joey and Rory Feek, is a balanced blend of traditional country deep emotion and good-humored irreverence that turns the spotlight more often on hubby Rory's modestly engaging voice after this collection's two predecessors chiefly showcased Joey's sparkling singing. The opening track, “Josephine,” is set against the Civil War but skillfully probes the multiplicity of emotions all soldiers go through not knowing if or when they might come home.

RICHMOND -- Joey Logano emerged as the winner of a wild short-track shootout in the final laps of the Toyota Owners 400 on Saturday at Richmond International Raceway. The victory is Logano's second this season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the other coming on April 6 at Texas Motor Speedway. Logano made a quick pass for the lead with four laps to go just moments after he was in the fourth position. Logano benefited from the help of Penske teammate Brad Keselowski, who gave leader Matt Kenseth a bump that allowed Logano to make the winning pass on the inside.

There was a small error in Craig Tomashoff's "Why'd NBC Pick Thursdays?" (Nov. 12). The character who had an "encounter with a randy tailor" on a recent episode of "Friends" was not Joey (Matt LeBlanc). Although it was revealed that Joey had been subjected to some unorthodox fitting techniques since his teens, he was blissfully naive about his tailor's proclivities. It was Chandler (Matthew Perry) who was "cupped" onscreen by Joey's old family friend, leading to a hilarious sequence in which the truth of the matter slowly dawned on Joey.

A male Rothschild giraffe calf born late last month at the Prague Zoo is gunning for the title of World's Cutest Zoo Baby. He has some tough competition -- an Amur leopard cub in Germany, a red-necked wallaby joey in Australia, a pair of Asian lion cubs in Germany, a parma wallaby joey in Ohio and a koala joey in Germany, to name a few -- but we think the sweet, snuggly relationship he has with his mother Nora just...

What gruesome casualty statistics fail to do, a horse made of wire mesh and plywood pulls off with profound simplicity: Joey, the magnificent puppet stallion at the center of"War Horse,"communicates to a broad public the staggering waste of war. Yes, it's sentimental. Yes, there are scenes that might have given even as inveterate a melodramatist as Charles Dickens pause. But this 2011 best play Tony winner, which launched its national tour at the Ahmanson Theatre on Friday, takes the audience on a thrilling roller-coaster ride in which innocence is thrown into a man-made hell.

At a recent preview, the star trotting the stage of Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater had a command that was palpable. The audience seemed to watch his every victory with cries of delight, and shouts of dismay at his peril. Not a bad bit of scene-stealing, especially since the performer in question has no lines and is, in fact, made of leather, wire and cane. Even so, Joey, the life-size horse puppet at the center of the play "War Horse," has the power to eclipse anything — and anybody — on the stage.
Joseph--better known as "Joey"--was a creative, starry-eyed 11-year-old, who dreamed about becoming a film director someday, so good a student that he consistently made the honor roll or principal's list. Michael, or "Mikie," was the popular, socially adroit one, a superb athlete and budding Casanova who, before turning 8 earlier this month, had already boasted of having several girlfriends--simultaneously.

If life is measured in our ability to achieve understanding with others about our common humanity, then writer-director Patrick Wang's absorbing debut feature "In the Family" - about a custody battle - has to count as a signature achievement. At nearly three hours it's long, but in Wang's pacing estimation, what is time when at stake is a decent character's threatened sense of being, fairness and belonging? Wang himself stars as humble Tennessee contractor Joey, whose life partner Cody (Trevor St. John)

When Montebello Cantwell-Sacred Heart holds its basketball awards banquet, Coach George Zedan should award a hard hat and lunch pail to senior guard Joey Covarrubias for his toughness in surviving a series of defensive assignments against players who one day we'll be watching on television in college or the NBA. "We ask him to do a lot," Zedan said. "We ask him to be our Swiss Army knife. " College recruiters might want to set up a one-on-one interview with Covarrubias to hear his personal scouting reports after guarding many of the top players in Southern California over the last four months.

Scarlet, Deakin, Fudge, Nugget and Shyla are in the prime of life and pretty good-looking to boot, but their puppy-making days ended for good Tuesday in the back of a big blue van in Sylmar. Nine dogs and a cat named Smokey marched up the stairs of the Lucy Pet Foundation's mobile spay and neuter clinic, unaware of what they were in for in the parking lot of Pet Supreme. Lucy, the Chihuahua whose picture is on the side of the bus, stood by for moral support. And here's the story: Actor Dick Van Patten, a guest on "The John Davidson Show" in 1981, struck up a conversation with the drummer in the show's band.

For celebrity stylist Joey Tierney and event producer Tony Schubert, interior decorating at home isn't much different from handling fashion shoots or Emmy parties. "It's interesting how fashion trends and colors cross over to interiors," Tierney says.  PHOTO GALLERY: Inside Joey Tierney and Tony Schubert's house Tierney may help Ashley Madekwe and Jaime Pressly look glamorous, but at home in Sherman Oaks with Schubert, she admits she is a bit more low key. “At home, I am a minimalist,” Tierney says.

Joey Logano dominated at Dover (Del.) International Speedway and took the checkered flag in the track's Nationwide Series race to become the first driver to win four straight races at Dover in NASCAR's second-tier series. He pulled away in the No. 22 Ford down the stretch Saturday and was never seriously challenged for the win on the mile track. Logano has swept the two Dover races the last two seasons. Logano's Ford, however, flunked post-race inspection because both sides off the front were too low. NASCAR will announce penalties later.

My co-tester went off to college last week, and I'm a little worried about how he'll keep in shape. Ever since I started this fitness gear column for the Los Angeles Times in 2002 - now up to 280 of them - my son, Joey, has helped me test pull-up bars, elliptical machines, pole-driven skateboards, Trikkes, mountain bikes, golf Frisbees, mini-snow sleds, bodysurfing hand-planes, five-toed running shoes and more. At 7, Joey was my stoker on the back of a $600 Raleigh Companion kid-friendly tandem, which I then bought and rode him to school and back on every day until eighth grade, when he told me it wasn't cool anymore.

Matt LeBlanc wants to make it clear that any resemblance between him and "Matt LeBlanc," his character on the new Showtime series "Episodes," is purely coincidental. Well, almost. "Episodes," a sharp comedy that skewers the behind-the-scenes machinations of Hollywood, marks LeBlanc's return to the spotlight following the 2006 crash-and-burn of "Joey," the short-lived spinoff of the phenomenally successful "Friends. " In his new show, the 43-year-old actor plays a devilish version of himself ?

"L.A. Superheroes" was an obvious labor of love for Serbian-born actress-model Yelena Popovic, who stars, co-directed (with husband-cinematographer Alexandros Potter), wrote the shaggy script (with co-star Alexander Zisiades) and was a producer on this occasionally insightful and amusing Tinseltown tale apparently inspired by her own life. Sadly, she should have kept a "story by" credit and handed the creative reins over to more competent folks. Hard-luck, often clueless Helena (Popovic)

Joey Chestnut, the California king of eating contests, has won the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest for an unprecedented seventh year in a row by finishing off a record 69 wieners and buns in 10 minutes on Thursday at Coney Island, N.Y. The 29-year-old from San Jose had set the record with 68 hot dogs in 2009 and tied it last year. You can see his technique in ESPN's Sports Science video above. Chestnut eclipsed the record of six victories by former rival Takeru Kobayashi.
