What do you get when you mix some of televisions hottest stars with instruments? Band From TV, of course! And the musical group, which includes former “All My Children” star Eddie Matos (ex-Ricky Torres; ex-Peter Marquez, “General Hospital”), is slated to rock at yet another charity fundraiser event.
Bandmates Greg Grunberg (“Heros,” “Alias”), James Denton (“Desperate Housewives”), Bob Guiney (“The Bachelor”), Adrian Pasdar (“Heros,” Ultimate Spider-Man”), Scott Grimes (“American Dad,” “ER”) and Stephen Collins (“7th Heaven,” “Devious Maids”) — along with Matos — are taking the stage at The Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center on Saturday, June 8, to help raise money for T.H.E Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools (which are located in Calabasas, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Bell Canyon, Hidden Hills and West Hills, California).
After five weeks of non-stop drama, one of my favorite new television shows, “Political Animals,” is concluding its six-episode mini-series run on USA Network tonight.
Throughout its run, “Animals” has surrounded the lies, the affairs, the betrayals, and the numerous addictions of the Hammond family. As the families matriarch, Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver), the former First Lady and Governor of Illinois, and current Secretary of State, is once again seeking to become the first female President of the United States. While she believes President Garcetti (Adrian Pasdar) is a good man, she feels she can do a much better job in the most powerful position in the world. In the season finale, aptly titled “Resignation Day,” Garcetti throws an unexpected curve ball in Barrish’s plan to resign from his cabinet by asking her to be his Vice President in the next election. This comes as an unexpected twist, considering Garcetti already has a Vice President in Fred Collier (Dylan Baker). Being that “Political Animals” is a primetime political soap opera, things are likely to happen that may end up putting a wrench in Garcetti’s plan in the end.
