STORY
By George Dickie
So you went the extra mile last year decorating the
house, buying plenty of candy and even getting yourself
in the spirit of Halloween. Everyone loved what you did
and all your trick-or-treaters seemed to go away happy.
And still, your house got egged.
Pictured: Jason Hawes stars in “Ghost Hunters” Wednesday on Syfy.
actual exorcism is performed at the suburban St. Louis
house that inspired the 1973 horror classic.
That’ll teach you.
Also live is A&E Network’s “Fear: Buried Alive” on
Monday, Oct. 26, in which – yep – three people are
buried in coffins, where they endure, as the press release
says, “a series of escalating horrors designed to test the
strength of their psyches.” As if being buried alive wasn’t
test enough.
This year, instead of wasting your time trying to please
a bunch of ingrates and miscreants, why not draw
the curtains, shut off all the lights and do something
constructive like watch TV? And since it is, after all,
Halloween, why not tune in to the fine holiday fare being
offered by the broadcast and cable networks this week?
For sheer quantity, you can’t beat Syfy, which has the
final week of its eighth annual “31 Days of Halloween,”
featuring Halloween-themed episodes of series including
“Ghost Hunters,” featuring Jason Hawes and the TAPS
team, and “Paranormal Witness” (Wednesday, Oct. 28)
and wall-to-wall spooky flicks such as “Cabin in the
Woods,” “The Omen,” “The Fog” and “Zombie Apocalypse”
– airing multiple times. Boo!
Probably the most noteworthy is on Fox with the “Bones”/
“Sleepy Hollow” crossover on Thursday, Oct. 29, which
finds Brennan and Booth (Emily Deschanel, David
Boreanaz) crossing paths with Ichabod Crane and Abbie
Mills (Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie) as they seek clues
related to the discovery of grisly human remains. Over
on NBC, it’s the Season 5 premiere of “Grimm” on Friday,
Oct. 30, which picks up where Season 4 left off, with Nick
(David Giuntoli) going rogue following the deaths of his
mother and girlfriend.
In a more humorous vein is the new Starz horror/comedy
series “Ash vs. Evil Dead” on Halloween night Saturday,
Oct. 31, in which Bruce Campbell resurrects his monsterhunter character from his B-movies of the 1980s. Also
that night on Sundance Channel is the second-season
opener of the award-winning international hit “The
Returned,” about inhabitants of an idyllic French mountain
town who are unaware they’re dead.
Destination America on Friday takes a page from “The
Exorcist” in presenting “Exorcism: Live!” in which an
S
Foodies will also have a smorgasbord of themed
programming from which to choose on Food Network,
including finales of “Halloween Wars” (Sunday, Oct. 25)
and “Halloween Baking Championship” (Monday) and
holiday editions of “Southern at Heart (Sunday) and “Beat
Bobby Flay” (Monday). The network also offers up recipes
throughout the day on Sunday. And over on sister network
Cooking Channel,”Ro’s Tasty Treats” shows how to throw
a spook-tastic Halloween party.
Finally, it’s not officially Halloween without the annual
“Treehouse of Horrors” episode of “The Simpsons” on
Sunday, in which Bart dies and radiation exposure gives
Lisa, Bart and Milhouse superpowers. Cowabunga!

Jay Bobbin’s Q&A
RachelBloom
of ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Monday on The CW
Where did you develop the sensibility
that goes into your acting, writing and
composing on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”?
I always felt like a neurotic little New Yorker
who wanted to be on Broadway, living
in Southern California. And kids were
pretty mean about it. And I went through a
period of, basically, pretty bad depression
and OCD right around puberty. It was
also around the time that I was wearing
sweatpants to school and cutting my own
hair.
Long story short, it culminated in seventh
grade with the popular kids paying the
most popular kid to ask me out as a prank.
I was happy, but everyone was like, “You’re
a dork for being happy.” It was a lot of that
type of stuff, so I think my sense of humor
has always tended towards either really,
really dark or really, really happy.
Since your Rebecca’s devotion to
Vincent Rodriguez’s Josh is pivotal
to the series, what was your role in
casting him?
It’s interesting because – I don’t know
how interesting this is, but I was in
Germany for my friend’s wedding, so I was
watching a lot of these tapes while I was in
Germany. That makes me sound way more
cosmopolitan and interesting than I usually
am, but I remember using any cell-phone
minutes to talk about how amazing Vince
was.
I was like, “Oh, Vince is it. Can we just stop
auditioning people now? He’s it.” A lot of
what’s in the pilot was stuff that he came
up with in his audition scene that we just
kept. He just ... he blew it out of the water.
It was amazing.

George Dickie’s Q&A
C
DR.DavidEagleman
of ‘The Brain With David Eagleman’ Wednesday on PBS
We keep hearing that there will one day be software that will enable writing to be done by computer. Is that
a real possibility?
We’re a long way off from that. ... So far, it hasn’t gotten far at all partially because our computational power isn’t
near what the brain is but it will be. The other thing is a lot of (artificial intelligence), I think, tries to take short cuts
and put in kluges to try and make something work real quick and so it ends up being nothing like a human.
I think probably the right way to make AI is to have it grow up and have an entire childhood, childhood experiences
and suffering and longing and joy and love and all the experiences that one has. That’s what makes a writer. I
mean, in order to write like a human, you have to essentially have to have lived the life of a human, and that’s what
I think AI is going to eventually look like but it’ll be way past our lifetime ... .
How can one maintain brain fitness as they age?
Social life is, in my opinion, the most important piece of it because people are unpredictable and it takes a lot of
work to deal with other people. So I think socializing is the fastest, easiest way to go there. There are all these
things about doing puzzles and Sudoku and crosswords and all that, that’s probably useful, too. It’s probably not as
much of a challenge. It doesn’t keep you as fit.
But you know, these nuns that I went to and talked to in this convent, they’re in their 80s, some of them in their 90s
and they’re very busy. They have chores everyday. They get up, they have to drive each other places. They have
to deal with each other all day long. I mean, they’re really keeping active lives. It’s not like they’re solving physics
equations. They don’t need to do that. You just have to be (relating to someone else).

David
Krumholtz
‘Gigi Does It’ Thursday on IFC
You mentioned your
grandmother would
sometimes flash
the grandkids. Was
she aware she was
screwing with you
when she was doing
that?
To get into your character on “Gigi Does It,” you’re
drawing on memories of your grandmother, imagining
what it’s like to be a 77-year-old Jewish grandmother
from ...?
New York. She is from New York originally. Lives in Boca Raton (Fla.). But yeah, I’m
trying to kind of interpret what a lot of these older women are like. After 40 years of
marriage, kids, raising kids, or potentially working out in a male-dominated business
world, because that generation of women were “Mad Men”-type secretaries, and
so they get to a certain point, it seems – the archetype, that character – they
get to a certain point where they just kind of say, “F... it.” And they live life to the
fullest, no inner monolog, no filter, just the real thing. ... It’s kind of what “Mama’s
Family” got away with back in the day – Vicki Lawrence – is just that bawdy, brassy
grandmother who tells it like it is, who likes being in charge, who relishes the role of
people waiting on her hand and foot.
Page 6 YOUR TV LINK Courtesy of Gracenote October 25 - 31, 2015
Oh, my grandmother was one of
the most devilish, mischievous
people I’ve ever met in my life.
She loved to create a stir. And
absolutely, she knew what she
was doing. She would just kind
of flash you and laugh.
She liked to do a lot of things.
She particularly loved messing
with my father, torturing him. He
was the foil to all her comedy,
and he was perfect because
he never saw it coming, even
though it was constant. He
always was unassuming in
assuming – you know, it’s his
mother – that she wouldn’t do
that to him. But she wouldn’t
ridicule him.

F
explores common food
myths and origins on
‘Food: Fact or Fiction’
Anyone who has ever wondered why fries are French or whether chicken
soup can really cure what ails you will want to take note of a new series
debuting this week on Cooking Channel.
In “Food: Fact or Fiction,” premiering Monday, Oct. 26, host Michael McKean
(“Better Call Saul,” “This Is Spinal Tap”) explores longstanding adages about
food and seeks to debunk or prove some of the most common food myths.
Along the way, he delves into the history of some common comestibles and
reveals fascinating stories about them.
“It’s a lot of stuff I didn’t know,” he says. “And the more we talked about it (in
creating the six episode, half-hour series) and the more we went through
it, the more we realized just axiomatic things about food have entered the
language but we don’t know where they came from.”

One popular food legend explored is how fried potatoes became known as French fries. McKean explains it actually
dates back to an 18th century conflict between France and Germany.
“There was a Frenchman who was captured by the Germans,” he says. “And when he was thrown into military prison, he
was being fed potatoes, and at first he wouldn’t eat them because it’s pig food. ... But he developed a taste for it and he
came back to Paris with this idea of, ‘We can do all these things with potatoes. Look at this stuff. We can chop them up
and fry them.’ And nobody would put it on the menu because it was pig food. Everybody knew what a potato was.
“But the French street peddlers got ahold of the idea,” he continues, “(and) they started making French fries, basically
fried potatoes, and it became a huge hit. And it was kind of a street-level food, kind of a popular food. Rather than
cordon bleu, it was just good. It was just throw a little salt on there – Jesus, c’mon, I could go for a stack of fries right
now.
“So anyway, (the show is) not just mythology,” McKean says, “it’s stuff that you just plain didn’t know.”
What book are you currently
reading?
What did you have for
dinner last night?
“I’m reading two books right now,
kind of juggling them depending
on my mood. I’m reading a 1970
novel by R.F. Delderfield. ... And
the book is called, ‘God Is an
Englishman,’ and it’s kind of a
wonderful Dickensian novel. ...
And I’m also reading a book of
science fiction stories by Paolo
Bacigalupi ... who’s this very good
science fiction writer.”
“For dinner last night, my
daughter made a rice and
bean and green salad
with some kind of Asian
dressing on it. All my gals
cook like crazy. It’s great.
My wife (actress Annette
O’Toole) is a very good
cook, both the girls are.
But yeah, she fed me good
last night.”
What is your next project?
“I’m going to take a little time
off, unless something comes
up, and just do some writing
at home and kind of take care
of some business. And we’re
going to do a family vacation
this Christmas and we don’t
know quite what we’re going
to do but we’re going to have
some fun.”
When was
your last
vacation,
where and
why?
“We went to
Hawaii a year ago
– in December of
2014, and it was
the six of us and
we had a real
blast. ...”

By Jay Bobbin’s Q&A
Checking in!
Given last winter’s post-Super Bowl episode, and now
a 90-minute airing after the “Supergirl” premiere, Elyes
Gabel knows how much CBS is behind “Scorpion.”
Elyes Gabel
Birthdate: May 8, 1983
Birthplace: London
The top-billed actor on the Monday adventure-drama
series is pleased about the expanded Oct. 26 story that
locks genius Walter O’Brien (Gabel) and his comrades
inside a “smart” building that becomes a potential death
trap. “I suppose the hope is for it to be translated past
the 90-minute special as a two-parter,” Gabel says, “so
we’ve filmed enough footage for it to be cut into two
(hour-long) episodes.”
Current residence:
Los Angeles
Marital status:
Single (but
reportedly
dating his
“Scorpion”
co-star
Katharine
McPhee)
A big factor in the ratings success “Scorpion” has found
since its premiere last year, Gabel believes, is the
humor that underscores the action.
“In another world, this would be a comedy,” the native
Englishman reasons. “With things like, ‘Are they going
to get out of that cruise ship?,’ there are so many
possible comic story lines ... but the audience likes
the jeopardy plus the slight wink that’s trying to be a
trademark of the show. The energy is always up, but
there’s always some kind of funny bit they might expect.
And often, they get it.”
The real Walter O’Brien is among the executive
producers of “Scorpion,” and Gabel consults with him
often on portraying him. “Rudimentarily, it’s his story,”
the actor notes, “but I suppose the thing the producers
try to instill in me, in having a relationship and dialogue
with him, is that this is a hybrid. We’re creating a
fictionalized interpretation of his life.”
Among Gabel’s main joys in making “Scorpion” are
the Walter-and-Paige scenes with co-star Katharine
McPhee, with whom he’s reportedly involved with
off-camera.
“You shoot a lot of scenes just because they’re there,”
he says, “and that doesn’t mean you’re not trying your
hardest to imbue them with character and meet your
objectives – but certain things are just easier to shoot,
and that’s definitely what I experience with Katharine.
She does a very good job with me about keeping a
natural tone to it.”
Other television work includes: “Game of Thrones,”
“The Messengers,” “Body of Proof,” “The Borgias,”
“Silent Witness,” “Psychoville,” “Identity,” “Waterloo
Road,” “Casualty”
Movie work includes: “M-5” (aka “Spooks: The Greater
Good”), “A Most Violent Year,” “Interstellar,” “World War
Z,” “Welcome to the Punch,” “Widow Detective,” “Exit
Strategy,” “Everywhere and Nowhere,” “Kingdom of
Dust,” “Boogeyman 3”
On his ongoing recognition from “Game of
Thrones” fans: “The show is a huge beast, and as
peripheral a character as I was on it (as Dothraki
Rakharo the first two seasons), there’s still a huge
attachment. (Viewers) have been in a relationship with
it for so long, it doesn’t matter where you were in the
show, you’re always a part of it. I’ll get, ‘I know you,
man! I saw you once, man!’ It’s a great feeling.”

‘Wicked
City’
in new ABC drama
series
By Jay Bobbin
You can tell just from its title that “Wicked City” isn’t
going to paint early-1980s Los Angeles in a particularly
pretty way.
Premiering Tuesday, Oct. 27, the ABC melodrama has
a moody look and tone befitting the series’ theme. As
two homicide detectives (played by Jeremy Sisto, who
represented that career previously on “Law & Order,”
and Gabriel Luna) pursue a serial killer (“Gossip
Girl” veteran Ed Westwick and his new cohort (Erika
Christensen, in a huge departure from her recent
“Parenthood” role) along the Sunset Strip, journalists
(Evan Ross and “American Horror Story” alum Taissa
Farmiga) and others become involved in the pursuit.
The actual Sunset Strip is a major filming location
for “Wicked City,” and creator and executive producer
Steven Baigelman reports that more than 30 years
later, “There’s a lot of the strip that does look the same,
actually. We have to be very, very careful about how we
shoot things, and we have great visual effects working
for us, so we are able to really re-create the era pretty
much down to the way it was.
“I think you are going to find that when you watch the
show, you are not going to watch it from a place of
nostalgia,” Baigelman adds. “You are actually going to
feel like you are there,” in an era the producer cites as
a time when L.A. was “the murder capital of the country
and also the serial-killer capital of the country.”
In having a pivotal role in “Wicked City,” Christensen
notes she’s grateful to have “found a good variety” in
moving out of “Parenthood” mode. “What really struck
me about (playing) Ms. Betty Beaumont,” the actress
reflects, “is how quickly she might change from the
PIictured: Ed Westwick
outset to the end of the pilot. Right away, you get the
sense that she’s all in for whatever this is with Kent
(played by Westwick). I’m betting she goes down the rabbit
hole with him, and I find that really interesting from where
she starts ... a nurse and single mom, kind of a cowed
person, not super-confident, not super-comfortable in her
own skin. And she may blossom.”
A relative of Westwick has been “a great resource” for
his “Wicked City” work, he reveals: “My mother is a
psychologist, so I was able to have some quite interesting
conversations with her. I think there is an individual here
who is living multiple personalities. It’s one of the ways we
see him manipulate so easily, and so well, the people that
he interacts with.
“I did research into the serial killers that we all know. Ted
Bundy, his charm was notorious. For me, that kind of
resonates when thinking about how Kent would be, so
there was all of that that came into my thinking and my
process. And as the story develops and as I learn more
as the scripts come in, I will be informed more, and that
journey will continue for me.”
Music also has a big role (and “a very healthy budget,”
Baigelman confirms) in “Wicked City,” to the extent that
such talents as Joe Walsh, Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy and the
All-American Rejects’ Tyson Ritter have guest spots.
“I have two older brothers,” Westwick says, “so they kind
of grew up in that era, although not in Los Angeles (but)
in the U.K. I feel like we were flooded with images of Los
Angeles and the music of that time and everything like
that. It didn’t work out for me being a rock star; I would
have liked to have done that, but I’ll watch it on
TV instead.”

‘Supergirl’
comes to Earth ...
and to CBS
Click or tap on icon for more!
Back in the day, CBS was the home of “The Incredible
Hulk” and the original version of “The Flash.”
It’s been a while, but the network now driven largely by
crime procedurals is welcoming another superhero ... or,
more accurately, a superheroine.
“Supergirl” lands Monday, Oct. 26, with “Glee” alum
Melissa Benoist in the plum part of the Man of Steel’s
cousin from Krypton, also known as Kara Zor-El or (in
her earthly life) Kara Danvers. The character also fueled
a 1984 movie starring Helen Slater; in a nice move, that
actress will recur as Supergirl’s adoptive mother, with
former television “Superman” Dean Cain as Dad.
“I auditioned the day after Halloween last year,” Benoist
recalls of her initial brush with the much-pursued title role,
“and it was a Saturday morning. And I think the second
that I saw in my email inbox the title ‘Supergirl,’ I just
knew automatically that it was something important and
it was something exciting and rare that I wanted to be a
part of.”
Still, Benoist notes she’s been undergoing a considerable
physical education for the part. “I’m terrible at sports,”
she allows. “I’m not coordinated in that way. I would have
moments where I felt confident and where I felt strong
and brave and like I could do anything. But then, like
everyone else, I have really, really awkward horribly
awkward – moments.”
Also in the impressive “Supergirl” cast: Calista Flockhart
(“Ally McBeal”) as Kara’s high-powered media-mogul
boss, Cat Grant, who also employs former Daily Planet
photographer James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks); Jeremy
Jordan (“Smash”) as a tech-expert co-worker and
confidant; Chyler Leigh (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as Kara’s
foster sibling, Alex Danvers; Jenna Dewan Tatum
(“Witches of East End”) as Lois Lane’s sister Lucy;
Laura Benanti (“Nashville”) as Kara’s birth mother; Peter
Facinelli (“Twilight”) as the enigmatic Maxwell Lord; and
David Harewood (“Homeland”) as an ex-CIA man with a
keen interest in Kara.
If “Supergirl” seems more suited to sister network The
CW, where its executive producers Greg Berlanti and
Andrew Kreisberg have the current version of “The
Flash” and “Arrow” (plus the forthcoming “Legends of
Tomorrow”), soon-to-exit CBS Entertainment chief Nina
Tassler says she was sold from the start on acquiring it:
“The journey that they were taking the character on, we
felt, just spoke to sort of where today’s generation is.
“We also really responded to the fact that it had a very
broad appeal,” Tassler adds, “so we felt that we could
have genre fans, but we also felt the relationship of this
young woman to the people at work ... it was a great
workplace comedy. And, more importantly, we thought
that this was a genre and this was a franchise that would
certainly open up and bring in new viewers.”
Benoist instantly becomes one of the new television
season’s most prominent stars, a position Flockhart
knows more than a bit about from her “McBeal” days.
However, not a lot of advice is being shared there,
apparently.
“She knows what she’s doing,” Flockhart says of Benoist.
“She’s very confident. I have a little bit of insight, I guess,
that I could probably provide for her – but she’s got it all
together. She’s got it going on.”

NatGeo
brings
viewers
into the
operating
room on ‘Brain
Surgery Live’
By George Dickie
Pictured: Bryant Gumbel
If you’ve ever found yourself complaining that much of
what’s on television these days isn’t exactly brain surgery,
you might want to check out a new special on National
Geographic Channel that literally is.
“Brain Surgery Live With Mental Floss,” airing live in
Eastern and Central time zones on Sunday, Oct. 25,
brings viewers into the cutting-edge surgical theater at
Cleveland’s UH Case Medical Center to watch an actual
procedure. Bryant Gumbel is the host of the two-hour
special that’s creatively guided by Mental Floss magazine,
and neurosurgeon Dr. Rahul Jandial will provide expert
commentary.
The surgery being performed is known as Deep Brain
Stimulation surgery – or DBS – a delicate though low-risk
procedure used to treat essential tremor and Parkinson’s
disease. Here, an incision is made in the skull and the
patient, who is fully awake and able to speak throughout,
helps guide the surgeons to the affected area where
electrodes are then implanted. A battery of tests then
determine whether they’ve pinpointed the problem area.
“(Neurosurgeons) use this surgery almost like a (what)
pacemaker does for the heart, to try to adjust the brain to
correct whatever the physical ailment is,” explains David
George, executive producer and president of Leftfield
Pictures, which produced the special. “Some people,
from what I understand, they can show very significant
improvement in some of these physical ailments if they
can find the part of the brain (that is afflicted).”
Along the way, viewers will see exactly what the
neurosurgical team sees – live images of the brain – and
they’ll get lessons on the brain and how it functions,
the latest technologies used in cranial surgery and how
virtual reality is changing medicine. They’ll also get a
background of the patient, who at this writing had not yet
been identified.
“My hope is that people walk away with a deeper
fascination and education on the brain, understanding
how it works” George says. “And really (it’s) the greatest
computer ever invented and there is such little known
about it. I think if people can walk away with a deeper
understanding of how the brain works, no matter if they
watch for five minutes or they watch for the two hours, I
think that really is the goal of everybody involved – really,
really understanding how complex (the brain is) and how
far we’ve come with understanding the brain and how far
we have to go.”

Campbell
resurrects
B-movie monster hunter
in Starz’s ‘Ash vs Evil
Dead’
By George Dickie
Pictured: Bruce Campbell
It’s been more than two decades since Bruce Campbell
last inhabited his over-the-top monster hunter character of
Ash Williams from three 1980s and ‘90s B-movies. So while
bringing him back for the new horror comedy series “Ash vs
Evil Dead,” premiering Halloween night Saturday, Oct. 31,
on Starz, didn’t seem all that alien to him, it did hurt.
past; Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda,
a disgraced Michigan state trooper determined to
prove Ash was behind the murder of her partner; and
Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as Ruby,
a mysterious figure who thinks Ash is behind the
outbreaks.
“You know, Ash has always been playing in front of me,”
explains the 57-year-old actor, who is also an executive
producer with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert (who also return
from the original movies). “I sign Ash’s face every time I go
to a convention, so that character is not that far removed.
But the physical act of it, it’s been a long time since I’ve
been covered in crap and thrown to the ground by Deadites
and attacked and all the usual stuff that comes with it. So
that was a big eye opener, of getting back into the daily
grind of being attacked by dolls and Sam Raimi throwing
things at my face. You know, that’s definitely eye opening
to go, ‘Wow, I’m in my 50s now. Is this really still going to
work?’ But it’s good; I do a lot more stretching now.”
“She is obsessive and antagonistic toward Ash,” Lawless
says of her character. “Unforgiving, remorseless, maybe
criminally insane. I don’t know. I’m waiting to see what
happens in the second season because the character,
by the end of the season you really know who she is
and what she’s about. And you know that the crap is
going to hit the fan.”
As the series opens, Ash is 30 years older – physically but
clearly not emotionally. Still a stock boy at the local discount
store, the aging lothario has spent the last three decades
avoiding responsibility and the terrors of the Evil Dead. But
when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of humanity,
the chainsaw-handed Ash must face his own demons and
answer the call.
Also in the cast are Ray Santiago (“Touch”) as Pablo,
Ash’s sidekick; Dana DeLorenzo (“A Very Harold & Kumar
3D Christmas”) as Kelly, a wild child trying to outrun her
While fans of the original movies will be in their glory
with “Ash,” newbies might want to know there is
considerable violence, blood and gore – but the overall
camp and silliness of the show’s tone neutralizes much
of it. And viewers of a certain age will want to take note
of the soundtrack of 1970s rock.
“This is a TV show that’s perfect for all the B-side
songs,” Campbell says, “not the ones you’re immediately
familiar with that you’ve heard 100 million times but
ones that you have not heard in awhile. ... I just know
that Ash being who he is living his low-budget life, it’s
the kind of rock and roll that’s got to go with him, that’s
got to be there. So I think we’re going to make a lot of
old rock bands pretty happy.”

By George Dickie
When the subject of elite
quarterbacks in the NFL comes up,
very seldom do you hear Carson
Palmer’s name, but that appears
to be changing. The 35-year-old
quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals
got off to another great start this
season, and hopefully it continues as
Palmer and the Cardinals host Joe
Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens on
Monday, Oct. 26, on ESPN.
Palmer’s NFL career has been a
roller coaster ride over the years. The
Cincinnati Bengals drafted him with
top overall pick in 2003, having great
expectations for the 2002 Heisman
Trophy winner out of USC. Palmer
held the clipboard his first season
and took over in 2004. His best year
was 2005, when he led the Bengals
to the playoffs but was injured
early on in a loss to the Pittsburgh
Steelers, who went on to win the
Super Bowl.
The Bengals made the post-season
again in 2009, but relations between
them and Palmer were souring,
which eventually led to Palmer
signing with the Oakland Raiders for
two seasons. He was traded to the
Cardinals for a sixth-round draft pick
in 2013, which is now looking like a
great deal for the Cards.
CarsonPalmer
In 2014, Palmer started only six
games before tearing an ACL
just days after signing a contract
extension with the Cards. By the time
Arizona reached the playoffs as a
Wild Card team, they were on their
third-string quarterback and their
offense was unproductive in a loss
to the Carolina Panthers. If Palmer
can stay upright and their defense
remains solid, the Cards could be a
major contender in the NFC.

something hard-hitting.
Which is OK, since no one does this kind of middle-age
or post-middle-age fantasy better than Meyers does. By
casting Anne Hathaway as De Niro’s boss in “The Intern,”
the filmmaker also services a younger demographic, as
she did in the entertaining “The Holiday” ... and it’s a very
pleasant blend.
The Hathaway character oversees a fashion-oriented
Web site, and since it’s a new venture, the heat is very
much on her. She resists getting too familiar with De
Niro, who’s part of the firm’s senior internship program,
but he eventually proves invaluable to her – not only for
his own background in the business world, but also for
the sympathetic and reliable ear and shoulder he is.
Frankly, it’s the kind of magic you for to the movies for
... and it works so well, the film seems to lose some of it
mojo any time the camera is off the two of them, though
it’s nice to see Rene Russo as an intended love match
for De Niro. There also are subplots involving Hathaway’s
home life and De Niro’s exchanges with younger male
co-workers, and while they’re meant to flesh out the
story, De Niro and Hathaway together remains the main
event here.
The two-hour running time of “The Intern” happily
supplies a lot of that. It’s a nice addition to the resumes
of both stars, and it lets Nancy Meyers keep her crown
as the queen of the kind of movie she does so well.

BY JAY BOBBIN
Boris Karloff Frankenstein’s monster. ’Nuff said?
Bela Lugosi Like Karloff, all it takes is the mention of one role
– Count Dracula – to justify Lugosi’s place on this list.
Elsa Lanchester The get-up has been much mocked ever since,
but British acting veteran Lanchester became an immediate
icon as the “Bride of Frankenstein.”
Lon Chaney Jr. Terror stayed in the family, thanks to Junior’s
portrayal of the Wolf Man, a part that his natural appearance
made him ideally suited for.
Peter Lorre Lorre’s unusual look made him a natural for the
horror genre, but he even could be scary on a more subtle
level, evidenced by his haunting portrayal of a child-killer in the
classic “M.”
Vincent Price He became a caricature of himself in later years,
as in “Theater of Blood” ... but in his prime (“House of Wax,”
etc.), the refined Price could be quite a frightening fellow.
John Carradine Though he also made many other types of
films, the presence of the craggy-faced father of fellow actors
David, Keith and Robert often signaled something scary was
on the way.
Anthony Perkins Here’s a case of an actor whose horror cred
comes down to one role (all together, now) – Norman Bates
in “Psycho.” If the film’s very last shot doesn’t creep you out,
nothing will.
Boris Karloff
John Hurt While he isn’t only a horror actor, Hurt can lay claim
to one of the knock-your-socks-off scare sequences in all of
movie history, given what happens to him in the pivotal scene
of “Alien.”
Heather O’Rourke Sometimes innocents can be terrifying,
demonstrated by young O’Rourke as the target of specters
(“They’re he-e-e-ere!”) in “Poltergeist.”
Robert Englund “A Nightmare on Elm Street” might have
yielded a few too many chapters – even extending to the
television series “Freddy’s Nightmares” – but the sharp-fingered
Mr. Krueger was good for some solid screams early on.
Tobin Bell So effective as the lethally clever Jigsaw in the
“Saw” movies that the series just won’t let him die, though
the character technically is dead, Bell is back yet again in the
current “Saw 3D.”

Make Halloween Candy Bark
Basically all you need to do to make Halloween Candy Bark is chop up some Halloween candy, melt some
chocolate, spread it on foil and top it with the chopped candy. You can use assorted candy- made with Snickers,
M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces and candy corn - or select a combination of your favorites. In the picture is Reese’s Pieces,
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Fast Break Bars and Butterfingers to make a peanut butter lovers’ bark.
Ingredients
Assorted Halloween candy, about 15 pieces or packs
(you want the equivalent of 1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped
candy)
Directions
Line a baking sheet with foil, shiny-side up; smooth
out the creases.
Cut the candy bars into pieces. If you’re using candies
like M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces, crush them if you’d
like or leave them whole. (They crush easily if you
put them in a resealable plastic bag and smack them
against the counter, or use a coffee mug to crush
them in the bag.)
Create a double boiler by putting a glass or metal
bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water,
making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Add
the chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Do not
overheat the chocolate or it will seize.
Remove the bowl from the pan and wipe the
condensation from the bottom. Pour the melted
chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet; use the
rubber spatula to spread it into a 10-to-12-inch circle,
about 1/4-inch thick.
Press the candy pieces into the chocolate, arranging
them so each bite has a mix of flavors, colors and
textures. Refrigerate the chocolate for 1 hour to
completely set before breaking it into large pieces.
Break into pieces and store in an airtight container at
room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks.
