You'd think that by now Vondie Curtis Hall has seen the inside of enough emergency rooms to last a lifetime. On CBS' "Chicago Hope," the experienced character actor plays the sometimes brooding, always driven Dr. Dennis Hancock, an important member of a staff that's prepared to deal with a host of medical emergencies at a moment's notice. Last year, Curtis Hall earned an Emmy nomination on NBC's "ER" for his portrayal of a suicidal transsexual.

You've seen his face all over TV for years, now won't you please go see the man's house?

Actress and Playboy model Bridget Marquardt has become a first-time home buyer with the purchase of a contemporary Mediterranean in Sherman Oaks for $1,725,000.

"I had a big list of all the things I wanted," she said, and "I wasn't ready to settle." Her patience paid off. The new 5,922-square-foot home "literally had everything plus," she said.

Pain, along with the other six, is a prominent subject of this 1992 John Sayles' film. It's about paraplegic white ex-TV soap star May-Alice (Mary McDonnell) and her black nurse Chantelle, a recovering drug addict (Alfre Woodard, right, with Vondie Curtis-Hall), and though that may sound like soap-opera material, Sayles doesn't sink into any traps of bathos (Bravo Sunday at 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.).
