Ron Eldard was caught in a yo-yo diet. For his role in the 1999 off-Broadway production of "Bash," the normally fitness-conscious actor had stopped working out and let nature take its course to help emphasize his character's moral as well as physical flabbiness. While still in that show, he was chosen to replace Kevin Anderson as elder son Biff, opposite Brian Dennehy's Willy Loman, in the hot Broadway revival of "Death of a Salesman."

David Mamet's "American Buffalo" is set in a junk shop, but there are jewels to be found in the play and they are thrillingly laid out for us in the Geffen Playhouse's dynamically acted production directed by Randall Arney. What a pleasure to experience again the ferocious gusto of Mamet's language when it was still being composed for individual characters. Lately, Mamet seems to be writing for his own bullhorn, but this relatively early work, which had its Broadway premiere in 1977, reminds us of the reason his style set off a revolution in American playwriting.

Instead of "Cops," ABC gives you flops. Premiering at 9:30 tonight on Channels 7, 3 and 10, the summer series "Arresting Behavior" is a sendup of all those so-called reality programs that use minicams in a verite style to intimately monitor the activities of law enforcement agencies and their officers. Put this down as a good comedy concept that's unsurely and unevenly executed. The first episode is limp, the second--"Arresting Behavior" reappears at its regular time at 9:30 p.m.

See evil. See evil run. Run, evil, run all the way to cable television purgatory. Recently returned from a six-month gig, the crew of an Anchorage salvage boat is hired by a young airplane pilot (Desmond Harrington) to tug in an ocean liner that he's sighted adrift in the Bering Sea. Some 40 years earlier luxurious Italian ship the Antonia Graza had disappeared.

Dipping its cup in the free-flowing vitriol of our current political discourse, Stacy Title's "The Last Supper" proposes a kind of Kevorkian Dining & Debating Society: If you don't like your guests' politics, put them out of your misery. As pure concept, "The Last Supper" seems a natural for sketch comedy. Or even a short film--Title's "Down on the Waterfront," by the way, was an Oscar nominee for live-action short a few years back.
