Jennifer Love Hewitt Returns to TV (Again (Again))

Maybe whispering to ghosts can help solve the case, what do you say Agent Hotchner?

She’s partied with five, did something last summer, fought alongside Jackie Chan, took care of Garfield’s health, whispered to ghosts and gave her massage clients a happy ending. Now CBS has announced that Jennifer Love Hewitt will join the cast of Criminal Minds, one of the channel’s many, many cop shows, when its 10th season premieres this October. Continue reading

Ghost Town team gets spooked (publicity stunt anyone?)

Update: Turns out the whole story is fabricated, or so says Ricky Gervais because he doesn’t want you to find out he pissed his thong when Marilyn Monroe’s ghost tried to give him a lapdance

Apparently prankish ghosts had the time of their undead lives scaring the hell out of movie types trying to throw a press junket at the famous Los Angeles haunted Roosevelt Hotel.

“We wanted the junkets at the Roosevelt because of its ghostly reputation. But we got so much more than we bargained for. A photoshoot we prepared was wrecked and two runners say they saw the figure of a lady in the full-length mirror.

“The final straw came when a production assistant stayed in the room earmarked for Ricky and claimed to have been freezing cold on the hottest day of the year. He said he woke up with someone whistling in his ear, even though he was alone, then heard a giggle before being pushed out of bed.”

Now I’m not saying this didn’t happen and I do believe in that kind of stuff, but it’s kind of convenient how supernatural beings are always willing to give films dealing about them a little publicity (anyone remember how Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewitt senses spirits ogling her in the shower?).

Ghost Town, a romantic comedy about a man who dies, gets revived and now has the ability to see ghosts who all want something from him, stars British comedian Ricky Gervais (Stardust), Téa Leoni (You Kill Me) and Greg Kinnear (Baby Mama). The film, which will premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, was directed by superstar screenwriter David Koepp (Secret Window), who penned the script with John Kamps (The Borrowers).
