  • Al Bundy's Walk of Fame star in front of shoe store

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Ed O'Neill's new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame would seem to be in an appropriate spot: in front of a DSW shoe store on Hollywood Boulevard.

    O'Neill used to play shoe salesman Al Bundy on the long-running sitcom "Married With Children."

    The Walk of Fame says the Emmy-nominated star of "Modern Family" will receive his sidewalk honor on Tuesday. The ceremony will feature his two TV wives, Sofia Vergara from "Modern," the current ABC hit, and Katey Sagal from "Married," which aired on Fox.

  • Pacino, ‘Scarface’ cast celebrate film’s legacy 


    LOS ANGELES — Al Pacino says he got burned while making “Scarface.”
    Literally, he grabbed the hot barrel of a gun that had just shot 30 rounds during one of Tony Montana’s violent scenes.
    “My hand stuck to that sucker,” the 71-year-old actor recalled. He couldn’t work for two weeks.
    Pacino relayed the experience during a discussion with “Scarface” co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman at a party Tuesday heralding the film’s Blu-ray release.
    Part of the charm of the film, Pacino said, is that it wasn’t initially a hit.

  • Tests show no illegal drugs in Winehouse body 


    LONDON — Amy Winehouse had no illegal drugs in her system when she died, and it is still unclear what killed the singer, her family said Tuesday.
    The family said in a statement that toxicology tests showed “alcohol was present” in the singer’s body but it hasn’t yet been determined if it contributed to her death.
    The 27-year-old soul diva, who had battled drug and alcohol addiction for years, was found dead in her London home on July 23, and an initial post-mortem failed to determine the cause of death.

  • 'Help' moves up with $20.5M

     LOS ANGELES — “The Help” continues to clean up at the box office, taking over the No. 1 spot with $20.5 million in its second weekend.
    The DreamWorks Pictures film starring Viola Davis, Emma Stone and Octavia Spencer in a drama about Southern black maids had debuted in second-place a week earlier. “The Help” raised its domestic total to $71.8 million and bumped 20th Century Fox’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which slipped to No. 2 with $16.3 million after two weekends at the top, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” remains a solid hit, lifting its domestic total to $133.8 million.

    Author Stephen King offers left-leaning talk show

    BANGOR, Maine — Stephen King is offering an antidote to what he sees as the biases of right-wing radio talk shows by hiring a former Green Party vice presidential candidate to co-host a morning talk show on two stations he owns.
    In a rare public appearance, the horror writer held a news conference Tuesday in Bangor, Maine, at the headquarters of his three-station Zone Radio network.
    “The Pulse Morning Show” will be co-hosted by 50-year-old Pat LaMarche and 43-year-old Don Cookson, a former television reporter. LaMarche ran for vice president as a member of the Green Party in 2004.

  • Santa Fe Opera looks to its roots to secure future

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — For more than five decades, the spirit behind the Santa Fe Opera has stemmed from a deep commitment to commissioning new works and presenting rare productions that had never been seen or heard in the United States.

    Now, with its international reputation and unique location in the shadow of northern New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the opera continues to make good on its commitment with two new commissions and an American premiere despite the ongoing economic stranglehold that has brought some of the arts community to its knees.

    General director Charles MacKay says that means visitors to the outdoor venue will be treated to new performances for at least the next four years.
