Jon Tenney has had a rough morning, much of it spent being knocked down, kicked around and punched by his good friend as others stand by and watch. And as if that weren't enough, he's still working on his lines and blocking. Tenney is just weeks from the opening night of David Mamet's Hollywood satire, "Speed-the-Plow," which opens at the Geffen Playhouse on Wednesday. On this day, he and his friend and costar Greg Germann are working through a fight scene as director Randall Arney looks on.

TNT's new private eye drama "King & Maxwell" may share some thematic DNA with classic gumshoe series like "Moonlighting," "Remington Steele" and "The Rockford Files. " But don't call it retro, said executive producer Shane Brennan, who based the show on David Baldacci's bestselling novels. "You can't regurgitate what's been done before," said Brennan, who also created "NCIS: L.A. " "I wanted to revisit this genre that was a TV staple back in the '70s and '80s and look at it in a very fresh, modern way. " The result is a crime-solving drama, launching June 10, with Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn as former Secret Service agents running down bad guys in Washington, D.C. They have an insider's view of the country's halls of power and will sometimes be looking for villains in those very places.

"Fools Rush In" is the kind of love story that Hollywood does better than anywhere else when it puts its mind to it. It has magic, glamour and romance yet never forgets that it's taking place in a recognizably real world. It also represents a major breakthrough for its stars, Matthew Perry (of TV's "Friends") and radiantly beautiful Salma Hayek. It's the perfect Valentine's Day release.
