They May Not Be Dead Just Yet

The Lone Gunmen–the three geeks who helped FBI Agent Mulder over the last nine years–apparently died in a recent episode of The X-Files, but they are slated to appear again in the series’ upcoming two-hour finale, the Vancouver Sun reported. It’s unclear whether the Gunmen–played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood–will appear in flashbacks or otherwise, the newspaper reported.

“Anything’s possible on The X-Files,” Braidwood told the newspaper. He added that it’s “pretty clear” the Gunmen died. “I shouted, ‘Dead man walking!’ as each of us walked on set that last day,” Braidwood said with a laugh.

As for the Gunmen’s demise, Braidwood said, “From the character’s point of view and as an actor playing a character, I personally didn’t see the justification in [the Gunmen’s being killed off], so I was a little disheartened. Largely because of the nature of the characters that we played in the show, the kind of things we represented, the humor we brought to it, the sense of morality we brought to it. But I didn’t disagree with it, in the sense that all the writers have been terrifically supportive of the Lone Gunmen and very fond of them. They didn’t make the decision lightly.”

I hope the CGI is as good

Oz Talks Yoda

Frank Oz spoke with Sci Fi Wire about not being the puppet master of Yoda in STAR WARS EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES.

He said that he’s relieved he did not have to operate a puppet for Yoda in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode II–Attack of the Clones. This time, Yoda’s completely computer-animated, and Oz simply provides the character’s voice.

“It was wonderful,” Oz told the site. “I didn’t have to work hard. Everybody else worked hard. [Director] George [Lucas] had told me a lot about it beforehand, so I wasn’t completely surprised. Again, they did all the work, and I’m just taking the credit here. Because they’re the ones who really worked their asses off.”

But Oz declined to reveal details about Yoda’s appearance in the prequel, including a rumored lightsaber fight. “I don’t know what I’m supposed to tell you,” he said. “I guess you have to ask George. No one has ever told me not to say anything–not once–but I always feel beholden to George and like to keep the surprises.” Episode II opens May 16.

Anderson: I’m Not Dying of Hepatitis C

Pamela Anderson wants the world to know that she’s not dying of hepatitis C.

The former “Baywatch” star admitted in March that she’s lived with the potentially fatal disease for years.

“Now I have people coming out of the deli hugging me because they think I’m dying,” Anderson told Jane magazine in a first-person story for its June/July issue. “I tell them, ‘I’m not dying. I’m fine. But if you wanna give me a free sandwich, go ahead!'”

The 34-year-old actress said she’s dealing with the liver disease with what she calls her “twisted sense of humor.”

“Like, when I found out I had hepatitis, I wanted to make bikinis with pictures of livers on them and give the money to the Liver Foundation,” she said.

Anderson, who’s engaged to rap-rocker Kid Rock, said she contracted hepatitis C by sharing a tattoo needle with her ex-husband, Tommy Lee. The former Motley Crue drummer insists he’s never had the disease.

I’m guessing it will do about $73 million

Thanks to the studio’s publicity department, we all know that it is being released this weekend, but exactly how much money will “Spider- Man” make?

I’ll take “A whole heck of a lot” for $100, Alex.
