Tommy Lee Jones is pretty busy this summer, you know, fighting aliens and all with Will Smith. I'm surprised he has time for this.

Slow day for TV news today -- I was kind of hoping Snooki's baby would be born five months early for entertainment purposes.

Talking Friends (And Kids) With Adam Scott

Talking Friends (And Kids) With Adam Scott

Although all of the ads for the new romantic comedy Friends with Kids play up the movie's impressive ensemble -- Jon Hamm! Kristen Wiig! Maya Rudolph! Megan Fox! -- they don't indicate that Adam Scott is actually the movie's leading man. The Parks and Recreation star plays Jason Fryman, a single-and-loving-it New Yorker who decides to enter into an unusual arrangement with his best friend, Julie (Jennifer Westfeldt, who also wrote and directed the movie): they'll have a kid together and share joint custody, but since they're not actually attracted to each other, they won't bother with marriage. At first, this arrangement gives Jason the best of both worlds as he's able to experience the fun of fatherhood while also being able to indulge his single guy hormones by dating a smoking hot Broadway dancer (Megan Fox). But then... well, you'll just have to see the movie for yourself. In town for the movie's premiere, Scott spoke with us about how he scored the gig and what costume he wore for Halloween last year. (Hint: He previously donned it for a very popular episode of Parks and Rec.)

Napoleon Dynamite: Not So Sweet

<i>Napoleon Dynamite</i>: Not So Sweet

The big question surrounding the premiere of Fox's Napoleon Dynamite animated series is... why? Why is a cartoon based on Jared Hess's no-budget comedy arriving on TV a full eight years after the live-action version became a surprise box-office hit? Certainly, the last attempt to translate a popular, Sundance-approved indie flick to animation (Kevin Smith's short-lived Clerks cartoon) didn't work out all that well, although that show's failure had as much to do with behind-the-scenes problems between the creators and the network as it did with low ratings. In contrast, Fox seems to have left Hess and his original Dynamite team (including his wife and co-writer, Jerusha Hess, and much of the movie's cast, from star Jon Heder and his sidekick Efren Ramirez to love interest Tina Majorino and popular girl Haylie Duff) pretty much alone to recapture the odd, offbeat sensibility that made the movie such a success.

The Finder: No Bones About It

<I>The Finder</I>: No <i>Bones</I> About It

This show was created as a spinoff of Bones, and they did a backdoor pilot during the course of the last season (which was awkward and terrible, like those things usually are). But the official premiere episode of The Finder didn't really have much in common with Bones at all: there was no quirky science, little in the way of gross corpses and no FBI agents. Instead, we got a former military man who has a special gift (not a learned one, like Brennan), a reluctant U.S. Marshal who helps him out on occasion, a big beefy partner and an insufferable juvenile delinquent serving probation at his bar for no real reason. The best and most original thing going for the show is the cute little maze in the title logo. In fact, this procedural "drama" feels more like a USA Network program than the spinoff of a once-clever Fox medical cop show.
