Newhart, A Mighty Heart and More on The Hour

This Week on The Hour... revisit some favourites as the summer hiatus continues.

Monday August 17th

Alanis Morrisette

One of the most successful recording artists of all time, Alanis keeps turning out music.

David Thewlis

Part of the Harry Potter cast - I think Thewliss would make a pretty good 'Freddy Krueger'.

Tuesday August 18th

Wayne Newton

This man's connected... love his role in Vegas Vacation where he woos Mrs. Ellen Griswold.

Bill Maher & Larry Charles

Maher and Charles explore the absurdity that is the world of organized religion in 'Religulous' now out on DVD.

Lee Thomas

Detroit based entertainment reporter Lee Thomas talks about his journey in the competitive and image based medium of television while coping with the skin disease vitiligo.

Wednesday August 19th

Malcolm Gladwell

Author Malcolm Gladwell takes his turn in the Red Chair to talk about his newest release, Outliers -- a great read!

Jamie Kennedy

Ghost Whisperer actor Kennedy is in the news more for his 'Love' life than his performing lately. I loved The Jamie Kennedy Experiment....

Charlie Kaufman

Film maker Charlie Kaufman has made some truly unique films. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich among them.

Thursday August 20th

Mariane Pearl

Many have been dealt tough blows in life, but Mariane's story is almost unthinkable. Her journalist husband, Daniel was captured and beheaded in Pakistan while Mariane was pregnant with their son. Her book was made into a film starring Angelina Jolie portraying Mariane.

Tony Bennett

Tony Bennett has struggled through career slumps and personal demons. Yet, his singular talent has seen his career rise to great heights again, under the managerial guidance of his son. He is truly an Icon and in my opinion - one of those singers that whatever your musical tastes -generations can agree that Tony has it going on. If you get a chance, don't miss his guest spot on Elvis Costello's show - Spectacle.

Friday August 21st

Bob Newhart

Do I really need to say anything? Well, how about that Newhart is proof that intelligent, dry wit is all you need to be truly funny. For Toronto folks... Newhart will be visiting Roy Thompson Hall in this upcoming 2009/10 season.

Valerie Bertinelli

Yes...she's the poster child for weight loss after calling Jenny. She's the ex of Eddie, mother of Wolfgang and isn't quite the good girl everyone thought she was as a teen.
Paul Martin
He's been a business leader, Prime Minister of Canada and a judge on Canada's Next Great Prime Minister. Maybe Paul will fill in for Paula on Idol?
