Monica Potter

The star's parents sold the family's old Ohio home in the 1980s and it has been abandoned for the past eight years, but the Parenthood regular snapped it up and discovered some beloved old items in the house.

She says, "When we went back in it was like a time capsule. I found my yo-yo. I found my dining room table because my parents gave it to (the previous owner).

Monica Potter Refused To Shave Her Head To Play Cancer Patient


Monica Potter

Actress Monica Potter refused to shave her head to play a cancer-stricken mother in Tv drama Parenthood as she feared the move would have seemed like an attention-grabbing "gimmick".

Producers asked Potter to go bald for her character Kristina Braverman's breast cancer storyline, but she said no because she didn't want viewers to applaud her bravery while millions of women are fighting the disease in real life.

The 41-year-old star also admits she worried the dramatic look would scare her seven-year-old daughter Molly.

Monica Potter Opens Up About Cancer Scare As Her Tv Character Battles The Disease


Monica Potter

Actress Monica Potter's real-life cancer scare inspired her Parenthood Tv character's health crisis.

The Along Came a Spider star's Tv mum, Kristina Braverman, opened up about her breast cancer battle to family members in Tuesday night's (09Oct12) episode of the acclaimed U.S. drama - and Potter reveals she helped create the storyline after alerting writers to her own scare.

She says, "I went for a mammogram and they (doctors) found something and I emailed (show creator) Jason (Katims) and said, 'What are we doing for Kristina this season? I think maybe we should explore breast cancer?' and he emailed me back and said, 'We're already breaking that story...' It was bizarre."

Potter Was Jailed For Underage Driving


Monica Potter

Actress Monica Potter once spent a night in jail when she got behind the wheel of a car at 15 and drove through Cleveland, Ohio in a blizzard to pick up late night snacks.

Then a generous teenager, the Along Came a Spider star opted to pick up a MCDonald's feast for friends - and landed in big trouble with cops.

She recalls, "We all went to a hotel room after winter dance... and I decided to go get everybody, like, MCDonald's at two in the morning in a blizzard and I didn't know how to drive, really.

"I got pulled over and thrown in jail and then I had to go to this thing for a few months with all these people who were burn-outs, and I wasn't. I had to go after school in my Catholic school girl's outfit... It was terrible."

The Last House On The Left (2009) Review


OK
Nearly 40 years ago, quasi-hippy filmmakers Wes Craven and Sean S. Cunningham were looking to make a name for themselves (and a little cash, if possible) in the thriving New York exploitation scene. Working with some intent distributors, they adapted Igmar Bergman's Virgin Spring for the drive-in, and a grindhouse classic -- Last House on the Left -- was born. With its memorable marketing campaign ("repeat to yourself... it's only a movie... it's only a movie) and direct, documentary style, it had impact and import during a crucial time in post-modern American cinema. As with several of Craven's past projects, Last House has now been remade for the post-millennial crowd, and that's too bad. This tedious, tepid update offers none of the original's brutality or energy.

It's time for summer vacation and the Collingwood family -- doctor dad (Tony Goldwyn), teacher mom (Monica Potter), and daughter Mari (Sara Paxton) -- are heading to their isolated lake house for a little R&R. Sadly, the teenage girl will soon run into escaped killer Krug (Garrett Dillahunt), his son Justin (Spencer Treat Clark), the equally unhinged Francis (Aaron Paul), and gonzo gal pal Sadie (Riki Lindhome). Along with her buddy Paige (Martha MacIsaac), Mari will be tortured, abused, and left for dead. When the criminals show up at the Collingwood home looking for lodging, it's not long before the parents find out what happened... and when they do, the tables are turned and no one is safe.

Con Air Review


Excellent
It wasn't necessarily obvious (or even possible to know) at the time of its 1997 release, but Jerry Bruckheimer's Con Air would represent his finest hour. Bruckheimer isn't the director, of course, but rather the rare movie producer who would claim possessive credit on almost any of his projects. Bruckheimer branches into cheesy thrillers, cheesy inspirational dramas, cheesy inspirational sports dramas, and cheesy television procedurals, but Con Air finds the super-producer munching on his bread and butter: a loaf of action movie, with melted cheese on top.

Not only that, but it's assembled using all of Bruckheimer's tried and tested techniques: Mix movie stars and indie heroes into an eclectic, slumming cast and have them act in a ludicrously high-concept scenario. (Here it is: The worst criminals in the country team up to hijack their prison transport plane! And it's up to one man to stop them!) Then spend lots of money but indulge in a cynical jokiness, and hire a director who will shoot the whole thing like it's a music video or a commercial (preferably for itself).

I'm With Lucy Review


Weak
Monica Potter gets dumped, then ends up on countless blind dates in the aftermath, which gives us the relationships all sliced up and out of order. Which guy will she end up with? The freaky baseball player or the kooky entemologist? Or someone else? Doubtless you'll care as little as I did, since Potter's character is too vapid to be worth keeping in the first place.

Counting Crows Star Duritz Rubbishes Escort Accusations


Counting Crows Adam Duritz Courteney Cox Jennifer Aniston Monica Potter

Counting Crows rocker Adam Duritz is urging fans to ignore a jailed escort agency boss, who accuses the frontman of being one of his best clients.

JASON ITZLER - who is currently serving a prison sentence on prostitution, drug and money-laundering charges - claims his New York Confidential escort agency was frequented by Duritz, who reportedly spent up to $20,000 (GBP11,000) per visit.

But Duritz's management have laughed off the allegations, insisting the singer has dated Hollywood beauties including Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Monica Potter, so would have no reason to pay for female company.
