No Autopsy For Mentell

Boston Legal

Police have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the death of Boston Legal star JUSTIN MENTELL, who was involved in a fatal car accident on Monday (01Feb10).

The actor died after his Jeep swerved off a road near Madison, Wisconsin and authorities have deemed an autopsy unnecessary, because the star did not fall asleep at the wheel and was not drunk before the crash, according to his longtime friend.

Mentell's pal Sharon Yap tells cops believe Mentell missed a sharp curve in the road, causing him to crash into an embankment.

She explains, "He was on a very dark rural road and they think that he missed the curve. He went straight into the embankment. It was a rural area with no streetlights. He was driving late at night before sunrise so it was dark. A farmer found him.

Alda Explains Emmy 'Tantrum'

Alan Alda William Shatner The Aviator Boston Legal The West Wing

Alan Alda has laughed off reports he was jealous when William Shatner beat him to the Best Supporting Actor In A Drama Series gong at last summer's (AUG05) Emmy Awards, insisting he was staging a "mock tantrum".
The Aviator star, 70, was seen ripping up his acceptance speech in the audience when Shatner's performance in Boston Legal triumphed over Alda's acting in The West Wing.
However, Alda - who already has five Emmys to his name - insists he isn't bothered about winning, and was happy for Shatner.
He says, "I tore up my acceptance speech on camera.... People thought I was serious.
"It was just a silly joke."

Star Trek Boston Legal

Former Star Trek actor WILLIAM SHATNER smokes so many cigars on the set of his acclaimed new TV show Boston Legal, they once made him ill.

The veteran actor is often seen closing an episode of the show with a cigar in his mouth, but Shatner admits it's had a very negative effect on his health.

He says, "You know what aversion therapy is? I practiced it with the cigars. In particular, one scene I thought rather than smoking a long cigar - which is what we tend to do because it keeps the smoke away from your face - that if it was a short (cigar) and pull on it, it might look more fun.
