T.J. Miller is easy to spot, poolside, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. On a warm, midweek afternoon, Miller is relaxing between the afternoon's meetings. But even while kicking back, he's hamming it up for this reporter, who has just arrived and is scanning the bustling crowd for him. Amid the twiggy, burgeoning starlets in wispy bikinis and smartly dressed, fedora-clad producer types, the 6-foot-3 Miller stands frozen in midjog — fruity drink in hand, a manic smile on his face and wearing a glaring, red-and-white candy-striped shirt that screams T.G.I.

The National Football League has tapped Perkins Miller, formerly of the WWE and NBCUniversal, as its chief digital officer. The move is part of a reorganization of the NFL Media Group spearheaded by Chief Operating Officer Brian Rolapp. "As you well know, the walls between 'traditional' and 'digital' media have all but disappeared, and as such, our media strategy has had to change and evolve," Rolapp said. At WWE, Miller was executive vice president of global digital media and played a key role in the development and launch of the WWE Network, the new online programming service that premiered in February and has about 700,000 subscribers.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. George Miller, a San Francisco Bay area liberal and dean of the California congressional delegation, announced Monday that he will retire when his term ends, closing a 40-year career on Capitol Hill.  The veteran Democrat's departure will leave just one lawmaker, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Los Angeles), in the House who was elected in the Watergate class of 1974 to serve continuously in the chamber since then. Also, Miller's retirement will further shake up the state's 53-member delegation that underwent a large turnover in 2012 due to a spate of retirements and defeats.

FX Networks has brewed up a big deal with MillerCoors. The cable unit of 21st Century Fox has struck a three-year deal with MillerCoors that will make the brewer the official beer sponsor for the FX, FXX and FXM networks. The agreement is non-exclusive, meaning FX Networks will still be able to sell commercial time to other beer makers. However, MillerCoors will have exclusivity on any product-placement in FX Networks' programs and a first-look deal for future shows. PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV MillerCoors already has a visible presence on FX Networks.

The Justice Department said its antitrust division had ended its investigation of Molson Coors Brewing Co. and SABMiller's proposed joint venture to market and distribute beer in the U.S. The division concluded that the joint venture would not reduce competition. Milwaukee-based Miller and Denver-based Molson Coors announced in October that they would form MillerCoors, aimed at helping them compete against Anheuser-Busch Cos., which has about half the U.S. market.

Bode Miller used to think the distractions that surrounded the Olympics were counter-productive. The Games, at least during working hours, were all business. But Miller, now 32, has taken a different approach for what could be his last Olympics. Miller, in fact, was very emotional after winning bronze in Monday's downhill. "I think that's part of why I wanted to come back," Miller said after the race. "I wanted that feeling. With my experience and technological knowledge, now I wanted to let my feelings go and let myself be emotionally involved in the race."

Dennis Miller's ratings have not varied more than a few tenths of a point since his late-night talk show debuted in January. But emotionally, the 38-year-old host has been on a wild roller coaster. "When you first go on the air, everybody watches--like when you're in traffic on the freeway and everybody stops because they want to see if it's a bad wreck," he said. "But eventually they put their foot on the accelerator. And then there's that period where you worry--are you in a free fall?

Bode Miller's chance for a second medal in Whistler will have to wait. The Olympic Alpine schedule got scrambled again Tuesday when an early morning storm forced the postponement of the men's super combined. The good news is that better weather is expected in Whistler for the next several days. The latest reset of Alpine events: the men's combined will be moved to Sunday, with the giant slalom getting bumped to next Tuesday, an open date on the schedule. The men's super giant slalom will remain in its original Friday spot.

Bode Miller went from making trouble in Turin to making history in Whistler, and that transformation may be an ongoing story of the 2010 Olympics. Four years after being shut out in Olympic medals and shouted down by the media, Miller got Vancouver off to a gate-roaring start Monday by taking bronze in the men's downhill. Miller's third medal -- he captured double silver in 2002 at Salt Lake City -- gives him more Olympic hardware than any skier in the history of American Alpine.

What's good for Bode Miller is good for America. What? Ridiculous as that reads, four years after his enfant terrible turn at the 2006 Turin Olympics, there may be a ski tip of truth to it. With the Vancouver Olympics fast approaching, we'd like to report Miller is reciting acts of contrition while negotiating a couch summit with Oprah to explain his boorish behavior in Italy, where he failed to win anything or anybody over --...

"Foxcatcher," Bennett Miller's fact-based drama set against the world of Olympic wrestling, has pinned down a Nov. 14 release date, a clear indication Sony Pictures Classics is positioning the film as an awards-season contender. Miller's highly anticipated follow-up to "Moneyball" was originally slated for release last December but was ultimately pulled from that date to give Miller more time to finish the film. "Foxcatcher" was also intended to debut at the AFI Fest last November but will now bow at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

SACRAMENTO -- Former state Assemblyman Jeff Miller (R-Corona) has agreed to pay a $1,000 fine for improperly accepting a gift of two tickets, arranged by a lobbyist, to a San Francisco 49ers football game. The fine is continuing fallout from the state Fair Political Practices Commission investigation into the lobbyist firm Sloat Higgins Jensen and Associates. The probe resulted in a $133,500 fine against the firm in February for improperly making campaign contributions to about 40 politicians and gifts to three others, including Miller.

The FBI set up shop at the home of a 91-year-old man near Indianapolis, saying he has thousands of artifacts and cultural items originating from at least a dozen different countries and Native American tribes - some of them acquired improperly. Agents and scientists, working in tents erected outside the house last week, were taking items from the home of Donald C. Miller and packing them up for further analysis. “I have never seen a collection like this in my life except at some of the largest museums,” said Larry Zimmerman, an anthropology and museum studies professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, who is helping the FBI figure out what's what in the private collection.

KEY MOMENT: With runners on second and third and two out in the third, Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson intentionally walked the left-handed-hitting Robinson Cano to load the bases for switch-hitter Justin Smoak. Cano entered with a .367 average (11 for 30) against Wilson, and Smoak had a .207 mark (six for 29), but the move backfired, as Smoak drove a three-run double to left-center field to cap a four-run rally and give Seattle a 4-0 lead. AT THE PLATE: Mariners shortstop Brad Miller hit two homers, a solo shot to center off Wilson in the fifth and a two-run rocket to right off Michael Kohn in the ninth.

Four Democrats have been battling for months over who was best suited to challenge Rep. Gary  Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga) for his Inland Empire congressional seat. But when Miller announced in February that he wouldn't seek another term, he inadvertently laid the groundwork for a fight within his own party. The battle escalated Friday between Lesli Gooch, a longtime former Miller aide who has his endorsement, and Paul Chabot, a military officer/businessman. The Gooch campaign issued a news release announcing her endorsement by the San Bernardino County Republican Party.  "We must protect California's 31st District and keep it out of the hands of Nancy Pelosi," the GOP's county chairman, Assemblyman Curt Hagman of Chino Hills, said in a statement issued by the Gooch campaign.

Men's slalom, the last Olympic Alpine event, also provides last chances for Bode Miller and the Austrians. Miller, the sport's enigmatic icon, has already won three medals at the Vancouver Games, three more than the entire Austrian men's team. Winner of the gold in the super combined, the silver in the super-G and the bronze in the downhill, Miller was last seen last Tuesday skiing back to his condo after skiing out of the giant slalom. As for his chances in Saturday's slalom, think back to Dave Kingman's strikeout-to-home-run ratio.

Ready or not, world, Bode is back. Bode Miller, the enigmatically-talented and bombastic ski racer who bombed out at the 2006 Turin Olympics before splitting with the U.S. Ski Team, announced at a Thursday news conference at Staples Center that he was returning to the squad in advance of the 2010 Vancouver Games. "This is an opportunity for me to have the best runs of my life," he said. A self-proclaimed nonconformist, Miller left the team in an acrimonious parting after the 2006 Olympics during which he failed to medal in five events and spent many nights cavorting at drinking establishments in the Italian Alps.

In his scathing and deeply reported examination of the U.S. Border Patrol, Todd Miller argues that the agency has gone rogue since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, trampling on the dignity and rights of the undocumented with military-style tactics. "The U.S. Border Patrol is not just the 'men in green,' it is a much larger complex and industrial world that spans from robotics, engineers, salespeople and detention centers to the incoming generation of children in its Explorer programs," Miller writes in "Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches From the Front Lines of Homeland Security.

Most candidates talk about what they would do if elected and many of those seeking a coveted office need to ask for campaign money. Matt Miller, a Democrat and one of 21 candidates vying to replace Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Beverly Hills), has killed two birds with one campaign stone: He offers his solutions to spiraling healthcare costs and asks for contributions to help him get across his ideas. Miller, a journalist and public radio talk show co-host, released a YouTube video this week that shows him wearing a neck brace to illustrate his point about out-of-control healthcare costs.
