Miller, Mantegna join Hunt's ABC sitcom

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Dennis Miller, Joe Mantegna and Lauren Tom have joined the cast of Bonnie Hunt's untitled ABC comedy pilot.

Hunt stars as a newly divorced woman who works as a detective. Miller will play Dr. Langley, the woman's therapist, while Mantegna will play Jack, her ex-husband.

Both roles originally were intended as guest-starring, but Hunt is said to have persuaded the two to stay on as regulars if the project goes to series.

Tom will play the role of Beverly, with Don Lake, who wrote the script with Hunt, also co-starring.

Comedian Miller most recently hosted his own talk show on CNBC. Mantegna recently co-starred on CBS' "Joan of Arcadia" and in the movie "The Kid & I." Tom played Ross' girlfriend Julie in a handful of second-season "Friends" episodes.

Hunt was last on ABC in "Life with Bonnie," which ran for two seasons. She was recently in theaters with "Cheaper by the Dozen 2."

Miller takes his shots, but he's only joking [21 Jan 2006|03:58am]

Miller takes his shots, but he's only joking
The Boston Globe

Comedian Dennis Miller has been both cheered and demonized for his post-9/11 shift toward conservatism. His hawkishness has puzzled some of his fans, and today's 10 p.m. debut of Miller's seventh HBO special, ''All In," may confuse things further. In one rant, he takes a passel of Democratic senators to task, then follows it by expressing admiration for Bill Clinton's intelligence and John Kerry's principles. For his part, Miller doesn't think he's changed that much. Most of all, he just wants people to know he's only joking.

Q. You say in this special that these are just jokes. Is it hard to say ''these are just jokes" when you're being more political?

AI. I don't think of it that deeply. They are mostly jokes but also what I believe. But it's not like I'm looking to lead people into the street or anything. I'm a comedian, for God's sakes.

Dennis Miller to Slow Down, But Still Promote Conservative Issues [21 Dec 2005|01:58am]

[ mood | moody ]

Dennis Miller -- scathing pundit, master of the rapier wit -- reports he's ready to hang up his rants. At least for a while.

"I'm going to take it easy for the next year," says Miller. "I'm 52 years old, and I had a talk with myself. I said, 'You know you cannot live your whole life thinking about your career, you gotta think about your life.' I've got a 15- and a 12-year-old, and I love my wife, I want to be with her. I'd like to go do a few things in the world and hang out and have fun."

MILLER PRIMED FOR WB [26 Nov 2005|01:44am]

[ mood | good ]


November 26, 2005 -- COMEDIAN Dennis Miller, absent from the airwaves since his CNBC show was cancelled earlier this year, is returning to the small screen.
The one-time "Saturday Night Live" regular and "Monday Night Football" commentator will host the 11th annual Critics' Choice Awards Monday, Jan. 9 on The WB.

The awards are given out by the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to have Dennis Miller bring his uniquely witty style and presence as the host of the Critics' Choice Awards," said WB Entertainment chief David Janollari.

"He was at the top of our list, and we believe that his penchant for spontaneity will bring a new level of excitement to our show."

"Hosting the Critics' Choice Awards is both ironic and scary for the critics, don't you think?" said Miller.

The Broadcast Film Critics tout their awards as being good predictors of eventual Oscar nominees.

Dennis Miller Says So Long to CNBC [11 May 2005|08:59pm]

Dennis Miller Says So Long to CNBC

CNBC doesn't have to cancel its low-rated prime time shows these days, because the hosts decide to leave first. Dennis Miller, host of Dennis Miller, became the latest one to do so, exiting the weekday talk show. The final episode airs Friday. Miller has been on the network since January 2004, but the audience never got very large, averaging just 100,000 total viewers last week. Miller's exit follows that of Tina Brown, who is ending her weekly show, Topic A with Tina Brown, which got even weaker ratings. In a memo to employees, CNBC President Mark Hoffman says he bumped Miller out of its slot, planning to rerun Mad Money with Jim Cramer in Miller's 9 p.m. ET time slot.

“As the business news leader, it is incumbent upon us to ensure that our influential, out-of-home audience has access to our signature business day programming throughout their business day from coast to coast. I have spoken with Dennis Miller about these plans, and he has let me know that his strong preference is to leave his program immediately. Therefore, the final episode of Dennis Miller will air this Friday, May 13. Dennis is an exceptionally talented comedian with an unmatched wit, and he and his team consistently delivered a very entertaining program. I want to personally thank Dennis, Eddie Feldmann and their entire group. We are all very proud of their accomplishments and wish them nothing but the best for the future."

Dennis Miller slams right-wing label [20 Apr 2005|01:31am]

Dennis Miller slams right-wing label

Dennis Miller has no problem with Canada's decision to stay out of the war in Iraq. "Canada can do what it wants as long as they come see me at Casino Rama."

The acerbic comedian, who rants nightly at 9 p.m. on CNBC, brings his act to Rama this Friday at 9 p.m.

Reached by phone last week in New York, the five-time Emmy winner bristled at suggestions he has sold out to the political right, a perception stemming from his outspoken support of "Operation Iraqi Freedom."

"That's one thing I've noticed about people on the left," said Miller. "They don't really individualize your views and look them over. If you disagree with them on one thing, they call you right wing."

Miller backed the war because "I felt we were in the fight of our lives against al- Qaida," he says.

He insists he's left of centre on everything but the war. "I believe in gay marriage and pro choice -- although I think abortion is wrong, but everybody has a right to choose."

If he is more conservative these days, it's because "I wasn't certain enough of my guess work to be a liberal any more."

How does he feel about Canadians? "I share my bed every night with one," he says, referring to his wife of 18 years, Ali Epsley, originally a Vancouver girl.

Miller calls it as he sees it [17 Apr 2005|12:50am]

Miller calls it as he sees it

His distinctive voice – remembered for spewing rancid daggers at the nation's powerful – came across the telephone upbeat and friendly. "Hi, this is Dennis Miller.“

The conversation was intended to publicize his upcoming one-man show at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort on Thursday. But the 15-minute call ended more a two-way exchange on politics, newsmakers and feminists.

A five-time Emmy-award winner for his critically acclaimed half-hour talk show "Dennis Miller Live,“ which had a nine-year run on HBO, a film actor and author of "I Rant Therefore I Am;“ "Ranting Again;“ "The Rants“ and "The Rant Zone,“ surprisingly didn't rant. He didn't monopolize the interview, or try.

"Well, what do you think?“ he queried, expecting to hear a response as equally honest and blunt as he gave.

Opinionated? Indeed. Funny? Absolutely.
