If you were going to show what happens to a man who loses the best part of himself, you'd want to cast John Leguizamo, who has spent his career leaping from one extreme characterization to another. In "The Take," Leguizamo is armored-car driver Felix De La Pena, a sweet-natured family man in L.A.'s Eastside who tosses bromides to his young son ("Make good choices!") as he leaves for work.

Heidi Klum has bought the Sherman Oaks estate of Ed Weinberger, one of the creators of "The Cosby Show," and his wife, television actress Carlene Watkins , for $9.875 million. The red-brick Georgian-style mansion sits on 5 acres that take in canyon, mountain and San Fernando Valley views. Features of the custom home, built in 2000, include a two-story entry with a sweeping staircase, herringbone-patterned wood floors, a media room with a bar, two offices, a library, a wine cellar and a gym/dance studio.

Director and co-writer Mark David's "American Cowslip" is an ambitious but misfired comedy about an agoraphobic junkie, Ethan Inglebrink (Ronnie Gene Blevins, also the film's co-writer), who hasn't left his yard in the desert community of Blythe for nine years. Pitch-dark-humor would seem the only possible way to go with such a hero, yet David piles thick layers of sentimentality and kookiness on top of broad, crude humor.
After making a small splash in the independent film market with their 1995 feature "The Grave," twin brothers Josh and Jonas Pate currently find themselves cranking out episodic television--namely, the cop/science-fiction hybrid "GvsE," set to debut Sunday on the USA Network.

Whether because the anxieties of our age (terrorism, impending pandemic, crazy weather) are finding metaphorical expression as popular entertainment, or because "Lost" was such a hit that TV producers can think of nothing better than to get in line behind it, we are knee deep in science fiction, horror and mystery series this fall.

In 1942, twin brothers Julius and Philip Epstein were struggling to find an ending for their latest screenwriting assignment: "Casablanca." Legend has it that as the siblings drove through Los Angeles one day, they suddenly turned to each other and simultaneously spoke the same, plot-solving sentence: "Round up the usual suspects!" By recalling a line they'd written for an early scene, each brother realized how to keep Humphrey Bogart's character out of the clutches of the Nazis. Telepathy?

When Cameron Crowe cast Renee Zellweger, a virtual unknown, to play the romantic counterpart to Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire," he knew he was casting the heart and soul of his movie. "She walked into the room for her audition," Crowe remembers, "and the room just kind of tilted her way."
