Here's another thing on it...

Quote:
THE CATCH (ABC) - John Eisendrath ("Alias") has inked a new two-year, seven-figure overall deal with Touchstone Television. The pact calls for the writer/producer to help co-create, co-write and executive produce the bounty hunter drama pilot, which stars Greg Grunberg and Orlando Jones, with J.J. Abrams. In addition, Eisendrath has set up three new drama projects at the studio - an untitled series set in the world of boxing at ESPN; "Wanted," about the agents who track down the dangerous criminals on the F.B.I.'s Most Wanted list at ABC; and an untitled series about a female divorce lawyer at FOX, the latter two of which have script commitments at their respective networks.

I hope Orlando (or as Nicole Sullivan once said on MADtv "O") will do better on this series then he did last as a talk show host.
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) J.J. Abrams has called in reinforcements to nail down his bounty-hunter pilot "The Catch."

John Eisendrath, who's worked with Abrams in the past on "Alias" and "Felicity," will collaborate with Abrams on "The Catch," co-writing the pilot script and serving as an executive producer. The arrangement comes as part of a new two-year deal Eisendrath has signed with Disney's Touchstone TV, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eisendrath's work on "The Catch," which is to star Greg Grunberg and Orlando Jones as bounty hunters, will ease some of the workload on the busy Abrams, who has two shows running at ABC ("Lost" and "Alias"), a feature film to direct ("Mission: Impossible 3") and a comedy in development with former "Saturday Night Live" star Cheri Oteri.

Hollywood Touches Nintendo DS
Tinseltown's stars come out for a night of drinks, music, and hands-on time with Nintendo DS.
November 17, 2004 - Nintendo of America threw bang of a party at the exclusive club The Day After in Hollywood Tuesday night to celebrate the November 21 launch of its forthcoming handheld, Nintendo DS. The event, packed full of DS kiosks, food, drinks, and music, and gorgeous women in very little clothing, drew some of Tinseltown's brightest stars. And, it also drew some lowly IGN editors.

The party kicked off at 9:00pm and was still going strong after midnight. The popular band The Killers played exclusively for the several hundred attendees on hand, and when The Killers weren't rocking the house, DJ Spinna was thumping beats.

The list of celebrities that stopped by to try out DS was impressive. Everybody from Cuba Gooding Jr., Jesse Metcalfe, Zach Braff, and Orlando Jones to Taryn Manning, Anthony Keidis, Sarah Chalke, Rachel Hunter, David Gallagher, JC. Chasez, Donald Faison, Michael Vartan and Jerry Bruckheimer made an appearance.

"They look great! They are small enough to travel with and will help me pass away many hours when I'm on tour, especially on those long bus rides," said pop star Pink about the DS.

Meanwhile, Nelly said he was "proud to be the first [to receive the DS]!"

And Donald Faison added: "Yo, this is the dopest thing I've seen in my life."

"Since we announced the Nintendo DS, celebrities have been clamoring to be the first to get their hands on it," says Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "The Nintendo DS was a huge hit due to its revolutionary features - the dual screen; touch-screen; a built-in chat function; and wireless communication."


The Red Hot Chili Peppers' lead singer Anthony Keidis enjoys DS


Playable DS games on hand included Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt, Super Mario 64 DS, Madden NFL 2005, Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf, The Urbz: Sims in the City, Spider-Man 2, and Asphalt Urban GT.

We also had the chance to try out Nintendo DS' built in PictoChat software with a wide range of freaky Hollywood types. The software enables up to 16 people to enter a chat room wirelessly and then hold conversations with each other by both typing and drawing. As we chatted, the not-incredibly-bright and yet still beautiful friends-of-celebrities wrote intellectual statements like "bitch!" and drew crude pictures of the sexual nature. That aside, the technology worked flawlessly.

Nintendo DS debuts November 21 for $149.99. The dual-screened portable comes with a free demo of Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt.

Check out some pictures of some of the celebs on-hand for the event in our media section.

Post Florida Atlantic University Homecoming "Owl Prowl"

A tradition of service
FAUís homecoming offers fun for kids, help for community organizations

Published Tuesday, November 9, 2004
by Dale M. King

Homecoming has a special meaning at Florida Atlantic University.
Sure, kids are getting psyched up for Saturdayís game against New Mexico State at Lockhart Stadium.
But the week of homecoming activities - known as the "Owl Prowl" - will again help community organizations.
The events are particularly special this year because it is FAUís 40th anniversary.
"We have a tradition of doing community projects," said Michael Winkler, marketing director for the Owl Prowl.
The Heart Walk held last Saturday, for example, was a benefit for the American Heart Association. The Angel Giving Tree will aid the Salvation Army. And Owl Care is a benefit for organizations in the northern part of the county.
Homecoming officially kicked off Monday afternoon with a carnival for live-in students sponsored by the Resident Student Association.
With music throbbing and smoke billowing from a barbecue pit, students took park in games like the bounce house, bungee jumping, a horizontal bungee run, dunk tank and other activities.
"Students get a ticket for each game they participate in," said Mccaa Morrow, RSA vice-president. Once they got enough tickets, they could "buy" barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers and cans of soda.
There was also a lot of Red Bull drink since that company was one of the sponsors.
"Homecoming is a big deal," said Morrow. "The students show their support for the school and the team."
FAUís Fighting Owls are 5-2 as they prepare for Saturdayís game.
One of homecomingís special events is the presentation of the Talon Leadership Awards Wednesday night in the Lifelong Learning Center.
First given out in 1997, and sponsored jointly by the FAU National Alumni Association and FAU Student Government, the awards honor outstanding service to the school and its students.
Christopher N. Pollock, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, will receive the Alumni Talon Award.
State Senators Ron Klein and Ken Pruitt will receive Presidentís Talon Awards for their service to FAU as community leaders.
Faculty and student Talon Award recipients will be named Wednesday.
The Owl Prowl also includes a comedy show. This yearís lineup includes former MTV vee-jay Bill Bellamy, comedian Orlando Jones of NBCís hit prime-time cartoon "Father of the Pride," Corey Holcomb of Comedy Centralís "Last Comic Standing" and local favorite Roz G. It will be held Friday at 8 p.m. in the FAU Auditorium. The show is open to the public.
Homecoming officially ends with a formal dance called "A Night to Treasure" Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Grand Palm Room.

Post Orlando Jones voicework for XBOX "Halo 2"

November 9, 2004 --


HALO 2
Three and a half stars
Platform: XBOX.
Rating: Mature. Price: $49.99 (limited edition, $54.99). Developed by Bungie Software, published by Microsoft.

JUST out today, "Halo 2" isn't merely the finest game ever created for XBOX: It takes the concept of aliens invading the Earth and turns it on its big, tired head.

The dialogue is so crisp, the graphics so enthralling and the characters so real that "Halo 2" whisks you out of your daily doldrums into another dimension - right into the game itself.

After an (overlong) opening movie about alien hordes planning doom, you're called to duty. All around you, in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, are sounds of controlled chaos bordering on panic.

As the cyberhero (the rather idiotically called Master Chief), you're the Terminator, Luke Skywalker and John Wayne rolled into one. Add Tom Hanks, too, because you sometimes must feel empathy for the aliens who swarm from a massive ring floating in space - that is, the Halo.

If you've never played the original game, it'll take time to master the controls. That's because you're using super sensitive sticks (not buttons) to move around this futuristic version of Mombassa, Kenya, in Africa.

Once you get the hang of things, you're hooked. It's fun to kill those annoying little aliens with their Munchkin-like voices - but there are also, bigger, badder aliens who are a lot harder to kill.

Actors Ron Perlman and Orlando Jones add emotion to the witty script, and unusual weapons offer visceral thrills - along with your ability to steal and commandeer just about any futuristic vehicle.

But wait; there's more: With a subscription to XBOX Live, you can play "Halo 2" online with your pals. It's packed full of exhilarating shooting games that sometimes feel like free-for-alls, sometimes like team-based war maneuvering.

If you're a real addict, you can buy a "Halo 2" wireless controller or a green headset to talk trash to your enemies while gaming online.

OK, when's "Halo 3" coming out?

Fusion Tour Party
Celebrity-packed event celebrates all things Nintendo.
September 28, 2004 - Nintendo of America on Monday night kicked off the launch of its videogame and music hybrid Fusion Tour at a celebrity-packed event in Hollywood. Stars like 24's Elisha Cuthbert, Nicky Hilton and Orlando Jones reportedly stopped in to play some of Nintendo's newer software and listen to music spun from a live DJ.

Also on hand were Fusion Tour band members from Story of the Year, Lostprophets, My Chemical Romance and Letter Skills.

Nintendo Fusion Tour travels to 39 cities in the US and brings showgoers a healthy mergence of cutting-edge Nintendo videogames and trend-setting music.

Celebrities on hand for the launch party received only a small taste of the games and music to come. A mere handful of GameCube titles were on display, including the already-released WWE Day of Reckoning and Mario Kart. But that didn't stop Tinsel Town's finest from planting themselves around a pair of DK Bongos and giving the new music rhythm game Donkey Konga a good pounding. The game was, in fact, a highlight of the event, drawing in crowds of people consistently.

Check out our media section for a couple photos from the event and proof that star Elisha Cuthbert is just as sexy in person as she is on television.

Orlando started as a writer for the Cosby Show spin-off, A Different World. Soon after, he wrote for Roc, and then produced the Sinbad Show.

I also heard on the radio today that Orlando Jones is gonna be performing at the "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montral, Canada in Mid-July.

Maybe he is either doing stand-up or there is a possible mini-reunion of former cast members from MADtv.

True he was the guy that did all those 7-UP commercials, I use to laugh a lot when he was on the 7-UP commercials. Now I hardly see any 7-UP commercials + someone replaced him = not so funny commercials that made the TV networks pull the plug on the 7-UP commercials.
