Fox reality show spotlights Downers Grove business May 23, 2013 12:00 AM
This time "you're fired" is more than a Donald Trump catchphrase. Fox is turning the firing of real people from real jobs into entertainment. And they start it off in Downers Grove. “Does Someone Have to Go?” airs at 7 p.m. Thursday. On the show, cameras go into small businesses and employees are compelled to rat out underperforming colleagues. At the end, they choose one co-worker to recommend for firing.
Michael Douglas, Matt Damon dramatize Liberace’s affair May 22, 2013 12:00 AM
The idea of Michael Douglas playing Liberace might seem nearly as outrageous as Liberace himself. Liberace, forever hailed as "Mr. Showmanship," was the excess-to-the-max pianist-personality whose onstage and offstage extravagance were legendary, and who wowed audiences in Las Vegas and worldwide. By contrast, Michael Douglas is a 68-year-old movie star known for he-man performances and morally ambiguous roles. And he was no piano player. But Douglas now dazzles as Liberace in the new HBO film, "Behind the Candelabra," including lavish musical numbers where he tinkles the ivories and flourishes his jewel-and-ermine finery.

Eve from 'Days' still a tough girl from suburbsMay 21, 2013 12:00 AM
On television, Winnetka native Charlotte Ross is often cast as an aggressive, and, shall we say, not-so-nice woman. She's no pushover in her latest role, either, as Olivia Vincent, the shrewd dance squad director on "Hit the Floor." The sexy new series debuts May 27 on VH1.
