Leslie Nielsen: Actor best known for ‘Airplane!’ and the ‘Naked Gun’ and ‘Police Squad’ film and television series
Tuesday 30 November 2010
Leslie Nielsen spent years as a journeyman actor, a reliable but bland leading man on television and in films who would be best remembered now for his role as a space-ship captain in the cult science-fiction film Forbidden Planet (1956) had he not been cast in Airplane!, the hilarious pastiche of disaster movies that revealed a delightfully droll and unexpected flair for comedy and made him a major star. The American Film Institute lists Airplane! as one of the 10 best comedies, and in its list of 100 memorable quotes, at No 79 is the exchange in which Nielsen is asked, "Surely, you can't be serious?" and replies, "I am serious. And don't call me Shirley." He said later: "I thought it was amusing, but it never occurred to me that it was going to be a trademark."

James Franco, my (and everybody else's) favourite "slash" careerist (actor/writer/student/artist/model), has been photographed in rather fetching drag by Terry Richardson for the cover of the second issue of Candy magazine, which describes itself as "the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing, and androgyny, in all its manifestations."

Corey Allen: Actor and television director who starred alongside James Dean in 'Rebel Without a Cause'
Tuesday 27 July 2010
The acting career of Corey Allen was boosted by early roles such as that of the ill-fated high-school gang-leader Buzz Gunderson, who challenges the new boy Jim Stark – played by James Dean – to a "chickie run" in the 1955 film Rebel Without a Cause.

On the Tory back benches, one of them in throbbing purple sat next to another one in thumping orange – the colour clash was almost audible, you needed special glasses to look at them. The orange one stood up and said: "Can I praise the Prime Minister for..." Whatever she was going for got lost in the parliamentary ribaldry. The Speaker remonstrated: "It is not against the rules of the House for a backbencher to support the Government." And Cameron said, with a hint of sardonic laughter, "Yes, we remember you doing that very well, Mr Speaker."
