"The Mighty" is based on a book called "Freak the Mighty," and that small but telling change is as good an indication as any of how the forces of conventionality have hamstrung what is in many ways a quirky and imaginative piece of work. Directed by Peter Chelsom, whose previous credits are "Hear My Song" and the fiercely eccentric "Funny Bones," "The Mighty" seems at war with itself.

In a recent Morning Briefing campaign, you seem to have forgotten our neighbor to the south when you claim that Buffalo or Cleveland are the losingest cities in sports. San Diego has compiled a dismal record in three major sports. They have not won a championship since 1963, if you count the Chargers' American Football League title. The Padres have never won a title in their 39 years, and neither did the Clippers during their six-year stay. Between the three teams that is 88 seasons without a title.

HBO is planning a comedy series for this summer about a rising young movie star who is accompanied on his Hollywood adventures by his brother and a couple of friends from the old neighborhood in Queens. Mark Wahlberg is one of the executive producers of "Entourage" and will make a cameo appearance in the first episode, HBO said. Also lined up for cameos are Jessica Alba, Luke Wilson, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman.

Mark Wahlberg once produced a show for a top-tier cable network that was inspired by his own experiences in Hollywood. Now another top-tier cable network will tip its hat to Wahlberg and his experiences in Hollywood--just as he promotes a movie based on that show. That entertainment-world ouroboros will raise its head for the "Entourage" producer at next month's MTV Movie Awards, where Wahlberg, 42, will accept its “Generation” prize, the show's version of a lifetime achievement award.

When Oliver Stone's "The Doors" wraps late this month, Val Kilmer may not be turning in the black leather pants he wears as lead singer Jim Morrison. The reason: Kilmer and the rest of the "group" may reprise their roles--as supporting characters--if "Wild Child" (formerly "Wonderland Avenue") begins filming this summer. That's the word from a source close to "Wild Child," which details a young man's coming-of-age in the frenzied rock world.
