A jury of six men and six women has been impaneled in the wrongful death suit filed by Michael Jackson's mother and three children against entertainment powerhouse AEG over the death of the pop singer. The trial is expected to last up to four months as the jury weighs whether AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who gave the singer a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol on the eve of what was to be Jackson's comeback tour. The lawsuit alleges that AEG relentlessly pushed Jackson to move forward with the "This Is It" tour, knowing the singer was neither physically nor mentally capable of handling it. FULL COVERAGE: AEG wrongful death trial AEG had advanced Jackson "substantial sums of money" and threatened that if forced to call off the tour, "there would be lawsuits and Jackson's career would be over.” AEG, however, contends that it had favored a British doctor but that Jackson insisted on bringing Murray aboard instead.

From the moment he built his first crude barbells out of parts found in a junkyard more than 50 years ago, Joe Weider dreamed of power. He was 13, rail-thin, living in a gang-infested Montreal ghetto. Beaten up more than once, he feared traveling from one neighborhood to the next. Lifting weights, he hoped, would change all that. But Weider did not stop at building his biceps. Body building swept him up, he recalls now, "like a religious fervor."

Long before Daryl Hannah lived off the grid or Julia Hill took up tree sitting, there was Al Gore fighting for the environment in the Senate during the '80s. With the success of his new film, "An Inconvenient Truth," bumper stickers have started appearing that read "Gore 2008," where the "o" in "Gore" is a photo of mother Earth. Sort of makes you wonder how other folks' bumpers might read were they to hop on the Green Wagon.

Arnold Schwarzenegger encouraged the director of "Pumping Iron," the documentary that launched him in Hollywood 25 years ago, to re-release it unedited -- including a marijuana-smoking scene. "I would refuse to wipe out that record or change it or alter it because of image's sake," Schwarzenegger said this week. "That would not be true to the filmmaker." George Butler's critically acclaimed 1977 documentary follows Schwarzenegger as he prepares to defend his Mr. Olympia title against fellow bodybuilders including Lou Ferrigno.

We are totally opposed to Actors' Equity's new "Actors' 99-Seat Theater Plan" that would reinstate union regulation in our smaller theaters ("Pro-Waiver Forces Hit Equity Plan," by Janice Arkatov, March 28). We feel that it is important to have the choice to do Equity Waiver theater. If the new plan is implemented, it will surely kill this very special kind of theater that we, as devoted actors, cherish.
