Trailer Watch: HBO's Temple Grandin Stars Claire Danes

At the jam-packed Paramount pre-Golden Globes party at the Chateau Marmont, I was talking with Jodie Foster, who is editing her Summit drama The Beaver, starring old pal Mel Gibson--"you've never seen him like this before," she promised. She also insisted that she will never change the title, which refers to a Beaver hand puppet who tells the Gibson character what to do.

Conan O'Brien Takes a Stand

Conan O'Brien has thrown down the gauntlet to NBC. He doesn't want to move The Tonight Show back by half an hour to make way for Jay Leno. Here's his statement. I agree with the argument that in a world of DVRs and TiVo, O'Brien's belief that he must be on at 11:35 PM to be successful is probably misguided. I suspect he feels betrayed more than anything else and fears that being pushed back will make it tougher for him to succeed.
