One of my favorite DC interviews, Graham Shiels (ex-Cody, General Hospital; General Hospital: Night Shift), is taking quite the bite out of Hollyweird. After playing sex-crazed vampire baddie Liam on True Blood, and beating Jim Carrey to a bloody pulp on the big screen in Yes Man, Shiels is the guest lead on tonight's season finale of Nip/Tuck.
"I play a guy who believes he's a vampire," Shiels says, laughing. "What is it with the vampire roles? I'm starting to believe I'm being typecast!"
Check out Shiels tonight on Nip/Tuck at 9 pm C/10 ET. While you're watching the show, log on to DC where I'll be live-blogging!
Jim Carrey is back! Carrey stars as Carl Allen, in this new take on romantic comedy, as a man so discouraged in life that his only response to anything new is refusing. Then one day a crazy friend Nick (John Michael Higgins, A Mighty Wind) shows up and convinces him to attend a Yes Man conference. Terrence Stamp (Alien Nation) stars as the leader of a cult-like “yes” group where the members are forced to say “yes” lest the universe unload negativity on them. After a good trial period Allen’s obsession with “no” turns to “yes” with remarkable consequences Allen gets a raise, a girl and his friends actually start to like him once more.
With predictably unpredictable occurrences: sex with an elderly woman, signing up to organize a wedding shower and bungee jumping, Carrey has plenty of opportunity to exhibit his comic chops. And of course in the film, there are plenty of opportunities for the great physical comedy for which Carrey is known: taping his face beyond recognition, falling flat on his face and riding a Ducati motorcycle with his butt hanging out.

Good news! An old friend is back, there,s a mouse in the house and a comedy superstar ventures once again into drama. The big box office hopes in wide release this week are: Yes Man with funny man Jim Carrey in the title role, The Tales of Despereaux starring a tiny little mouse with enormous ears and Seven Pounds with Will Smith as a man desperately trying to help others. I have more hope for this week than last as Carrey and Smith generally turn in good performances and Despereaux looks to be visually stunning if not a child charmer. READ MORE
