- Mel Gibson spent nearly $30 million of his own money to produce, co-write and direct "The Passion." Some say it is a classic, while others hate it. Before I form my opinion, I think I should at least see it.
- Noah Wyle will be taking a break this season from NBC's top-rated drama ER. Wyle is not leaving for good but will take a break this season to spend more time with his wife, and their nine-month-old son. I'll miss him but family has to come first!
- Eighty-four prisoners escaped from a maximum security prison in northeastern Brazil early on Saturday through a 50-yard tunnel they dug to the jungle outside, police said. Colonel Klink is said to be shocked!
- A burglar who took a nap after breaking into an elderly woman's house in Amsterdam was arrested after she found him asleep on her couch. He's hoping that he's assigned to the prison in the item above!
- A Japanese expedition equipped with infrared cameras will scour the Nepali Himalayas for six weeks starting Sunday in search of the legendary Yeti, or abominable snowman. I don't know who will be happier if they find proof... them or Jazz!
