NewAllProductsHere is something to cheer about! Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 74-year-old actor and producer received the plaque Tuesday in Los Angeles in recognition of his contributions to the film industry.

Douglas' wife, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, father Kirk Douglas and son Cameron Douglas attended the ceremony. Kirk, an actor known for Spartacus and other classic films, received his own star in 1960.

"Michael Douglas is what legends are made of. He joins his legendary actor/father Kirk Douglas whose star and Michael's will forever shine just a few feet from one another," Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said in a statement.

"We have been patiently waiting for Michael Douglas to unveil his stellar award since he was selected in 2003 and are so excited to finally honor this Hollywood royal with a star on our historic Hollywood Walk of Fame," she added.

Jane Fonda, Eric McCormack, Andy Garcia and Douglas' former agent Ron Meyer were also present at the event. Douglas honored Zeta-Jones and Kirk in a speech to the audience.

"[The] love of my life is here," the actor said, according to People. "I'm talking about Catherine. I'm grateful for your support and your love and your patience."

"My dad is here. In a month, Kirk will be 102 years old!" he added. "It means so much to me, Dad, that you're here today. Thank you for your advice, inspiration and I'll say it simply and with all my heart: I'm so proud to be your son."

Zeta-Jones had shared a sweet video with Douglas as they made their way to the ceremony. The couple will celebrate their 18th wedding anniversary in December.

"On our way to the Hollywood walk of fame ceremony. My hubby is getting his star to go along with his hands and feet! Hooray for Hollywood," Zeta-Jones captioned the post on Instagram.

Douglas is parent to Cameron with Diandra Luker and to son Dylan and daughter Carys with Zeta-Jones. He is known for such films as Fatal Attraction, Wall Street, Basic Instinct, Behind the Candelabra and Ant-Man.

What a great honor! I love all of those guys and gal. Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and the legendary Kirk Douglas.

Be Well,
Steve

'Breaking Bad' movie in development from creator Vince Gilligan

Breaking Bad series creator Vince Gilligan is developing a new film that takes place within the same universe as the award-winning drama series.

Details on the two-hour film are being kept under wraps, with it being unclear if the project would be released on television or theatrically, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

It is also unknown if the film would be a prequel to Breaking Bad -- similar to Gilligan's Better Call Saul -- or take place after the series ended.

The Albuquerque Journal has reported that the film is being referred to as Greenbrier and that it will follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. Production is set to begin in November.

Breaking Bad, which starred Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, RJ Mitte and Betsy Brandt, ended after five seasons in 2013. AMC and Gilligan then released the prequel series Better Call Saul which follows Odenkirk's crooked lawyer Saul Goodman.

ABC moves 'The Alec Baldwin Show' to Saturday nights

ABC is moving talk show The Alec Baldwin Show from its Sunday time slot at 10 p.m. ET to Saturday at 10 p.m. ET.

The Alec Baldwin Show will be replaced by reruns of Shark Tank on Sundays starting on Nov. 18 with The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special also set to air during the time slot on Dec. 2.

New episodes of The Alec Baldwin Show will begin airing on Saturdays starting on Dec. 8. All of the show's remaining episodes have already been filmed.

Baldwin launched the program in October with the series earning low ratings for ABC.

"I mean, who knows if we survive? ABC's not doing very well. We could get out there, show four or five episodes, and be dead," Baldwin said recently while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.

The time slot change comes after Baldwin was arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly punching a man over a parking spot. The actor denied the allegations on Twitter.

Which radio DJ and comedian is joining 'American Idol' as in-house mentor?

John C. McGinley: 'Scrubs' helped get doctor roles out of his system

John C. McGinley said he turned down many offers to play "smartass" physicians after nine seasons as Dr. Perry Cox on the sitcom, Scrubs.

"We did it for almost 10 years and almost 200 episodes. I kind of got that out of my system and if I didn't, it begs the question, 'What were you waiting for?'" the 59-year-old actor told reporters at New York Comic Con.

It was that hunger to try something completely different that led the Office Space, The Rock, Platoon, Wall Street and Point Break alum to sign on for his current job.

"From his sound to the way he walks, I made him diametrically opposite to Cox, very much on purpose. The fact that he's a bit of a smartass, there's some connective tissue there, but that's it," McGinley said of Stan Miller, the grouchy, former New Hampshire sheriff he plays in the horror comedy, Stan Against Evil.

Now in its third season, the show follows Stan as he tries to cope with the recent death of the wife he didn't know had been protecting him for years from demons who want to kill him and wreak havoc in their hometown.

Desperate to be left alone to watch his war documentaries and nature programs, Stan insults everyone in his path as he is dragged into supernatural adventures by Evie Barrett, his perky replacement, played by Janet Varney.

"The loss of Claire, his wife, in the context of the show, and the loss of his job, which gave him his moorings, yields a profoundly dysfunctional guy. So, when he is rough and crass and taking rib shots verbally at people, that is all born out of fear and loneliness and a guy who is damaged," the actor added. "Wounded and injured men, for actors, is delicious."

Created by Dana Gould -- who plays the recurring role of chatty cemetery worker Kevin -- the series airs Wednesday nights on IFC. Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney return as Stan's adult daughter Denise and Deputy Leon Drinkwater respectively.

'Undressed' reboot in development at MTV

MTV is developing a reboot of young adult drama Undressed with series creator Roland Joffe.

Joffe, who also executive produced the original Undressed, is returning to executive produce the reboot which is currently in development at MTV Studios.

MTV Studios was formed in June to develop revivals based on the network's classic programs, such as Daria and The Real World.

Undressed, which aired for more than 200 episodes from 1999 to 2002, explored complicated young adult relationships. Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter, Max Greenfield, Brandon Routh and Chad Michael Murray starred on the series which helped launch their careers, alongside writers Damon Lindelof, Lizzy Weiss and Steven S. DeKnight.

The original show won a GLAAD Award for being one of the only programs at the time to feature gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, along with same-sex relationships.

"Undressed was ahead of its time and we're looking forward to developing the series for a whole new generation," head of scripted programming for MTV Studios, MTV, VH1 and Logo Pamela Post said in a statement. "Much has changed in the dating/relationship world since the series first premiered and we're excited to showcase how both have evolved."
