NEW YORK – The West Wing, a Judd and Will Smith in the warm glow of The Foxlight.
President Sheen addressed the nation Wednesday night in an hour of television most agree was compelling. The West Wing dealt with terrorism in a fictional manner.
The show included Sheen telling a a group of high school students, "A hero would die for his country, but he'd much rather live for it." The show was entirely written and produced in the three weeks since the Sept. 11 attacks. The regular season premiere has been rescheduled for next week.
And Wynonna Judd has a date with hundreds of men on Friday in Kentucky — she's set to perform two shows at the army post at Fort Campbell. Her spokesperson says the shows are Judd's response to terrorism attacks on the United States. Judd says she's been searching for a way to make a difference.
Finally, Muhammad Ali — a Christmas story? That's what it looks like. Ali starring Will Smith is expected to make its debut on Christmas Day. Originally, it had been set for release on December 7, but Columbia Pictures says the film is something the studio wants to use to "go right to the heart of the holiday season."
The film's original release date would have gone head-to-head with the remake of Oceans Eleven starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. Ali might not have scored a knock out against that contender.
