The Joe Show host Joe Crawford whoops it up with fellow Canadian funnyman Howie Mandel, who’s appearing Oct. 13 at Brock University’s Centre for the Arts in St. Catherines, Ontario. Howie will chat about judging duties on America’s Got Talent and hosting duties on Deal or No Deal.

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Suncera “That Writing Chic” Johnson gives it up for Hector Elizondo and Jackee Harry, stars of the upcoming short flick Knight to D7, which tells the story of 2 best friends grappling with the reality of cancer.

Keeping It Reel host Tim Gordon peeked into the ego of Edward Norton. “There’s no chase scenes, no weapons,” he said of his new film, Stone. “The drama comes from this corkscrewing tension that evolves only in conversation. So if you’re an actor, it’s like, At last I matter!”

Aaron Johnson, who plays young John Lennon in Nowhere Boy, chatted about the Beatle’s widow’s reaction to the new biopic. “Yoko gave her blessing and basically stayed out of the way while we were making the film,” he told host Robin Milling. “And she cried when she saw the movie.”

Marina Anderson, who was married to actor David Carradine from 1998 to 2001, suspects foul play in the star’s 2009 death. “I totally believe this was not an accident by himself,” she told host Robin Milling. “There had to be other people in the room with him.”
