'Carpoolers' Premieres on ABC on October 2
Tue, 09/18/2007 - 14:11 — admin

Monday, September 17, 2007 -- Life in the fast lane - the carpool lane, that is -- proves a hilarious occasion for male bonding for four guys from very different backgrounds in ABC's new Fall comedy series, "Carpoolers." These four use their commuter confessional as a way to commiserate about their jobs, their families, their hopes and their secrets, because in the carpool lane, no one can hear you scream. "Carpoolers," premieres TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network

Meet Laird (Jerry O'Connell, "Crossing Jordan"), a dentist and recent divorcé turned womanizer who was left with nothing intact but his libido. Laird's best friend, Gracen (Fred Goss, ABC's "Sons and Daughters"), is a mediator, a voice of reason, and the unofficial leader of the pack. Then there's self-sacrificing Aubrey (Jerry Minor, "Saturday Night Live"), with a brood of kids and a stay-at-home couch-potato wife, and newlywed Dougie (Tim Peper), the carpool neophyte who's willing to risk his life to save a coveted parking space for the team.

In the premiere episode, "Pilot," Gracen wonders aloud how his lovely "house flipper" wife, Leila (Faith Ford, ABC's "Hope and Faith," "Murphy Brown"), can afford to buy a $200 designer toaster and how his deadbeat son, Marmaduke (comedian T.J. Miller), who struts around the house in nothing but his jockeys and a smile, suddenly lands an internet job making more than his dad. By the end of the day, the guys have their mission: to steal back the respect Gracen deserves by any means necessary.

"Carpoolers" stars Fred Goss as Gracen Brooker, Faith Ford as Leila Brooker, Jerry Minor as Aubrey, Tim Peper as Dougie, Allison Munn as Cindy, T.J. Miller as Marmaduke Brooker and Jerry O'Connell as Laird.

Guest starring are Troy Evans as Mr. Heggie, Taylor Parks as Aubrey's daughter, Drew Matthews as Aubrey's son, Stephanie Reibel as woman, Scott Thompson as rich carpooler #1, Eddie Goins as rich carpooler #2, Irene White as Sue, Stephen T. Brophy as Ted and Andrew Cherry as Rikki.

"Pilot" was written by Bruce McCulloch and directed by Anthony and Joe Russo.

Bruce McCulloch ("The Kids in The Hall") created the series and serves as executive producer and writer. Marsh McCall ("Just Shoot Me"), Anthony and Joe Russo ("Arrested Development," "You, Me and Dupree"), Justin Falvey ("Las Vegas"), Darryl Frank ("Las Vegas") and David Miner ("30 Rock") also serve as executive producers. "Carpoolers" is a production of ABC Studios. It is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with a 5.1-channel surround sound and Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.

This episode will be available on the day after airing on the network for users to watch online.

Jerry O'Connell Weds Rebecca Romijn In a private Ceremony on Saturday evening at their home surrounded by family and close friends These pictures are from the Rehearsal Dinner at Adagio Ristorante in Calabasas, CA. Also at the rehearsal dinner was Charlie O'Connell, Jerry's younger brother, who we all remember at ' The Bachelor ' a few years ago- he is still not married....

Here are detailed reports about the wedding from various online magazines:


Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell Wed!
Saturday July 14, 2007

Ugly Betty star Rebecca Romijn and her fiancé, Crossing Jordan star Jerry O'Connell have tied the knot -- cowboy style.

A representative for Romijn confirmed the marriage took place at 6 PM ET on Saturday.

The casual, western-themed affair took place at the couple's ranch in the L.A. suburb of Calabasas. Prior to the evening ceremony, guests were treated to a lemonade bar and appetizers created by Savore Cuisine.

Romijn and O'Connell exchanged vows in 100 degree heat in front of approximately 100 guests. The groom wore a khaki suit and entered with his brother, actor Charlie O'Connell. They were soon followed by the couple's two dogs and a gospel choir singing Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is."

The bride followed after her own maid of honor and completed her grand entrance in a white floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, her hair partially down, carrying a bouquet of white flowers.

Romijn and O'Connell exchanged vows under a big tree adorned with large white flowers. A female officiant conducted the ceremony.

The relatively brief ceremony ended 15 minutes later with a kiss and cheers from the wedding guests. The couple skipped down the aisle as the gospel choir serenaded them with Milk and Sugar's "Sunshine."

Their wedding guests later enjoyed a barbecue reception complete with brown picnic tables, wagon wheels, colorful hay bale seats and a large dance floor that was placed over the couple's pool.

Romijn, 34, and O'Connell, 33, announced their engagement in September of 2005. This is the second marriage for Romijn, who was previously married to Full House star John Stamos from 1998-2004. While this is a first marriage for O'Connell, the actor was previously engaged to E! News host Giuliana DePandi.

Rebecca Romijn Weds Jerry O'Connell

SATURDAY JULY 14, 2007 09:25 PM EDT

By Ulrica Wihlborg

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell were married on Saturday in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles, Romijn's rep Lewis Kay tells PEOPLE.

Romijn, 34, wore a Ralph Lauren gown and jewelry by Neil Lane as she and O'Connell, 33, exchanged vows in front of 100 family and friends. The couple's two dogs Taco and Better – dressed in black bow ties – also joined in on the festivities, running around the grounds.

"It was a perfect celebration and Jerry and I couldn't be happier," Romijn tells PEOPLE.

The couple met in the fall of 2004 when Romijn was scouting for her documentary Wet Dreams, about choreographing the fountains at Las Vegas' Bellagio Hotel and Casino.

"We met Jerry at a party," Romijn told PEOPLE. "We told him what we were doing and he was like, 'You're making a documentary out of this? I want to be the boom operator!' He was totally game."

O'Connell proposed to Romijn in September 2005, during a trip to New York.

This is the first marriage for O'Connell and the second for Romijn.

Romijn currently stars in ABC's hit comedy Ugly Betty. O'Connell will be starring in ABC's new comedy Carpoolers this fall.

They Do!

After three years of dating, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell exchanged vows during a romantic outdoor wedding at a private home in Los Angeles. Romijn walked down the aisle in a gown by Ralph Lauren and jewels by Neil Lane as a small group of family and friends—perched on hay bails covered with quilts—looked on. After the ceremony—planned by Heidi Asimus of Red25 events—guests dined on blue crab salad and lavender-grilled prime beef tenderloin at rustic tables adorned with wildflowers and lanterns. Instead of the traditional cake, the sweet ending included mini country apple and red velvet cupcakes. Romijn and O'Connell began dating in the summer of 2004.

Romijn, O'Connell's Really Hot Nuptials
by Marcus Errico
Sat, 14 Jul 2007 09:21:14 PM PDT

With the mercury pushing 100, one can forgive Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell if they sweated out their vows Saturday.

The camera-ready couple wed in an "intimate ceremony" at the Ugly Betty star's ranch outside Los Angeles, her publicist Lewis Kay tells People.

About 100 guests braved the boiling temperatures to see the erstwhile X-Man shape-shifter and her beau exchange "I do's" under a tree.

The wedding party included O'Connell's actor-brother, Charlie, as well as the couple's two dogs, according to Us Weekly.

The groom wore a tan suit, while Romijn was sheathed in a white floor-length Ralph Lauren gown and bejeweled in Neil Lane's finest. The newlyweds were serenaded by a gospel choir, per Us Weekly, and the reception featured a western theme, complete with barbecue, real wagon wheels and hay bales.

This is the second matrimonial go-round for Romijn, who was married to John Stamos for six years. O'Connell, registered his first trip down the aisle, although he was previously engaged to E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi.

Romijn, 34, and O'Connell, 33, first met on the Vancouver set of the Ben Affleck romantic comedy Man About Town in April 2004, just after Romijn's split from Stamos. But they didn't begin dating until that fall, after running into each other at a party in Las Vegas.

She finalized her divorce from the former Full House star in March 2005; six months later, she and O'Connell were engaged.

"We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the obligatorily giddy couple announced at the time.

Aside from sharing credits on the 2006 releases Man About Town and The Alibi, both have plenty of solo success.

Romijn stars on Ugly Betty as the transgender schemer Alexis Meade. Her next film role is in the indie family drama Lake City with Sissy Spacek and Drea de Matteo, due out later this year.

O'Connell, who guested on Ugly Betty last season, is about to begin his **sixth season as Detective Woody Hoyt on NBC's Crossing Jordan. The actor, who first gained fame as one of the kid stars of Stand by Me in 1986, has also voiced a role in computer-animated feature Cat Tale, which costars Sean Astin and David Cross and is slated for a 2008 release.

(**Editorial note by the JOC Fan Site - Crossing Jordan aired its series finale this spring. Crossing Jordan is no longer in production)

The couple and their spokes people did their best to keep the wedding plans under wraps the days prior to the wedding.

NY Daily News

Romiijn wedding a veiled affair
Representatives deny Rebecca Romijn's wedding despite strong rumors

Sunday, July 15th 2007, 4:00 AM

Reps for Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell went running Friday when we asked about the couple's strongly rumored wedding. At the end of the week, we were hearing from more than one source that Malibu nuptials would be taking place.

But three inquiries each to their separate spokespeople — one in Los Angeles, the other in New York — went unanswered.

We didn't even get the usual fig-leaf response, which is, "We don't comment on the personal lives of our clients."

One source said the couple had made exclusive arrangements with People and In Style to cover the ceremonies, and that other media outlets were being kept in the dark.

"They didn't want the place swarming with paparazzi," says the snitch.



After a good six year run, NBC has decided not to renew the series Crossing Jordan. The series finale "Crash" aired on May 16th. Chad Darnell reported the news from the production offices in his blog. He also took photos of the set on his last day at work, before it was torn down. Photos from the filming of the finale "Crash" can also be seen at his blog. Good-bye Crossing Jordan. We'll miss you!



Back on March 5th, Variety reported that Jerry O'Connell signed on the the cast of the new comedy pilot "Carpoolers."

Variety - Mar. 5, 2007

Trio park for 'Carpoolers'
Goss, O'Connell, Minor join cast of ABC comedy pilot
Fred Goss, Jerry O'Connell and Jerry Minor have joined the cast of the ABC comedy pilot "Carpoolers."

It's a return to the Alphabet for Goss, who starred in last season's critically acclaimed but short-lived "Sons and Daughters." The casting marks a switch for O'Connell, who has spent the last few years in the drama world, starring in NBC's "Crossing Jordan."

As for Minor, "Carpoolers" reps the comedian's primetime series debut. The standup most recently appeared in HBO's "Lucky Louie," and he briefly appeared on "Saturday Night Live."

Pilot revolves around a group of four men who carpool to work. Goss plays Gracen, while O'Connell stars as dentist Laird and Minor is aboard as Aubrey. They join previously announced cast members Faith Ford, T.J. Miller and Allison Munn.

Laffer comes from ABC TV Studio and DreamWorks TV. Bruce McCulloch, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and David Miner are exec producers, while Anthony and Joe Russo are directing.

In May, ABC picked up the pilot and annouced that Carpoolers would air on Tuesdays at 8:30 pm after Cavemen (the show with the Geico characters)

The Disney-owned network on Tuesday announced it would add at least 12 series next season, and eight of them pack the fall schedule. They include "Private Practice," a "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff with Kate Walsh, and "Cavemen," a comedy built around the Geico pitchmen.

Returning stars include Dylan McDermott, Lucy Liu, Peter Krause, Victor Garber, Angie Harmon, Faith Ford and Christina Applegate.

ABC's New Shows for the 2007-08 Season


Premise: Four very different men use their daily commute to bond and vent about their lives.

First Impressions: A large portion of this show will apparently consist of four guys talking in a car, so the writing had better be really sharp. There were a couple moments of spark in the clip, but it feels a little self-consciously quirky.

Stars: Fred Goss ("Sons & Daughters," "Significant Others"), Faith Ford ("Hope & Faith," "Murphy Brown"), Jerry O'Connell ("Crossing Jordan," "Sliders"), Jerry Minor ("Arrested Development"), Allison Munn ("That '70s Show"), Tim Peper ("The Guiding Light") and TJ Miller

Studio: ABC Studios

Producers: Bruce McCulloch ("SNL," "Kids in the Hall"), Justin Falvey ("Las Vegas"), David Miner ("30 Rock"), Anthony and Joe Russo ("You, Me and Dupree")

Finally, this mention from the Baltimore Sun:

May 17, 2007

Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan) headlines this buddy comedy about guys who drive to work together each day and their home lives. Each rider has a different back story and probably wouldn't normally share a car. It seems as if the producers are hoping wacky people who typically wouldn't be caught dead with each other plus cramped space equals ratings gold.

Jerry recently made an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show which aired on January 8th.

In the interview, Ellen asked Jerry if he was getting married over the weekend, or had already gotten married over the weekend (knowing that the show would air on Monday). Jerry told her he and Rebecca did not have plans to get married on January 6th, that it was just an Internet rumor. However, Ellen did ask Jerry why his parents were still be in town if the holidays were already over! Jerry insisted that they stayed in town because they love Ellen's show and wanted to visit back stage. Jerry confirmed that he and Rebecca still plan to get married, but he did not give a date.

Rumours about the ceremony plans spread over Christmas (06), but the STAND BY ME star agreed to tape an interview with US TV chat show host ELLEN DeGENERES, which aired yesterday (08JAN07), to end the speculation.
He says, "It's one of those internet rumours that starts and the only problem with those internet rumours (is) your mom finds out about it.
"Your mom calls up and is like, 'Jerry, Louise just told me that she read on the internet that you're getting married and I want to know if this is true because I wanna know why I don't know about this and have to find out about it on the internet.'"

MONDAY ON ELLEN - JERRY O'CONNELL of "Crossing Jordan" drops by, and Ellen grills the about when he and Rebecca Romijn will tie the knot.




Star Magazine reports that according to a friend of the couple, Jerry and Rebecca will be getting married at her Wagon Wheel Ranch on January 6th 2007. It will be an intimate gathering of roughly 20 close friends and family members.

Here is the report from Star Magazine:

December 13, 2006


After a 15-month engagement, Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell finally agreed to hold an intimate wedding at their ranch near L.A. on Jan. 6, friends tell Star! The X-Men: The Last Stand star, 34, who was married to ER's John Stamos for almost six years, convinced her two-year younger fiancé to exchange vows at their Wagon Wheel Ranch before just 20 close friends and family. "For Jerry, this will be his first marriage and he wanted to make it a big deal, but Rebecca held her ground," says a friend.

Nevertheless, to keep the groom-to-be happy, "Rebecca agreed to let Jerry plan a party a few weeks after the wedding where everyone can get crazy!" adds another buddy.


In an earlier report from Star Magazine, Jerry and Rebecca discussed their upcoming nuptuals:

October 17, 2006

Actor Jerry O'Connell tells Star that he and fiancée Rebecca Romijn are ready to rush down the aisle any minute now. When Star caught up with him in at a private estate in Beverly Hills on Oct. 11 for the benefit to for war-torn Darfur, Sudan, he revealed: "We are going to have a small quiet wedding possibly this holiday season!"

As for whether he considers Rebecca a bridezilla, Jerry assured Star: "No. Not at all. She couldn't be further from it. She is amazingly calm. However, I am a groomzilla. I just get very nervous and I don't know exactly what to wear and I just want everything to be right!"

And when asked if he'd like to have a family, Jerry beamed: "Definitely. I would love to have kids in the future."

In the meantime, the couple already has their holidays mapped out. For Halloween, Jerry says, "Rebecca and I are going to Universal Studios. It's haunted and we wear masks so we don't get bothered. It's usually really scary and we can't wait for it."

Then it's on to Thanksgiving. "This year Rebecca's mom is going to cook, which is good because if I were to cook, everyone would get salmonella!" Jerry joked. "We will have a turkey and it's exciting because Rebecca's mom is a really good cook. It's a change having a home-cooked meal for Thanksgiving. My family is famous for getting a turkey at Koo Koo Roo, putting it in the oven and then claiming they cooked it themselves, even though they just re-heated it!"

And for the end of the year, Jerry crowed: "We do a lot of lights on the house," says Jerry. "We are very big on holiday lights!"

A few weeks ago, Rebecca Romijn asserted that she and Jerry will be getting married and said "There will be a wedding. It's not going to be anything like La Dolce Vita TomKat." (Quote from

ADL and NBC Raise Awareness About Consequences of Hate Through "The More You Know" Anti-Bias Segments

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) developed the anti-bias segments, one target of NBC's 2006-2007 "The More You Know" campaign featuring network celebrities as positive role models for parents, adults and young people.

"We know that it takes one person to make a difference in saying 'no' to prejudice, so just imagine the potential impact when a celebrity speaks as a role model to millions of young people and adults," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "If we can change the heart and mind of one person with these segments, or inspire people to act against prejudice in their communities, then the effort of reaching out is well worth it. We are delighted to continue our partnership of more than a decade with NBC."

Ranging from 10 seconds to 30 seconds in length, the campaign's anti-prejudice segments feature well-known TV celebrities such as Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni of Law & Order: SVU, Sarah Chalke and Donald Faison of Scrubs, and Miguel Ferrer and Jerry O'Connell of Crossing Jordan.

The "Crossing Jordan" star (though he'll always be Vern to us) showed off his furry Halloween costume over the weekend, dressing up as Elmo for the annual Camp Ronald McDonald Carnival.

Sadly, Rebecca Romijn didn't show up to be Big Bird to her fiancé's Elmo (or better yet donning Mystique's blue body paint) --she was away shooting an indie film.

Extra met up with Jerry at the Men's Fitness Magazine party in New York City. Here's what he had to say about one of his favorite TV shows, American Idol.
Idol' Fever Heats Up In Hollywood
April 4, 2006

Hollywood has "American Idol" fever. More than 30 million people are glued to the small screen every week as the singers give it their all. Now the show's most famous fans are giving "Extra" their scorecard on the top nine.

"I'm quite passionate about ‘American Idol'," revealed Jerry O'Connell, the new Men's Fitness cover-stud. Jerry told "Extra" that rocker Chris Daughtry is his favorite. "I vote a lot," he said. "I'm like a 12-year-old girl: ‘Give me the phone!'"



Rebecca Romijn has recently been promoting her new television show Pepper Dennis. The following press mentions both Jerry and Rebecca.


No sour grapes for Romijn
By William Keck, USA TODAY
CALABASAS, Calif. — If Rebecca Romijn seems generously candid, chalk it up to her deep personal happiness and fun new role as a super-snoopy investigative reporter in WB's Pepper Dennis (premieres Tuesday, 9 p.m. ET/PT).
Rebecca Romijn plays ambitious Chicago TV reporter Pepper Dennis in the new WB comedy series of the same name.

"I do have more sympathy for reporters than I ever had before," acknowledges Romijn, 33, a former supermodel who was host and reporter for MTV's House of Style in the 1990s. "You've got to get the story, and I totally get that."

Fresh from a 13-hour catch-up sleep marathon, Romijn is having a breakfast of huevos rancheros. She has arrived at a cafe near the ranch house she shares with 32-year-old fiancé Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan) and is bursting with bright colors.

The 5-foot-11 fashion queen is dressed in a striped peach rugby shirt, gold headband and necklace, a turquoise ring, a mammoth 6-carat yellow diamond engagement ring, a bright orange wallet, and toenails painted with a pink hue called "I Need a Vacation." Because her reporter character is single, she takes off her ring during scenes and replaces it with a set of yellow diamond earrings also given to her by O'Connell.

The 1999 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover girl, who posed on the sand alongside other top cover models for the 2006 cover, will hit the beach again soon for a vacation in the Bahamas with O'Connell. The previous evening, she fell asleep in his arms "around 8" — somewhere between watching rentals of A History of Violence and The Squid and the Whale.

She calls O'Connell "the most solid guy. I don't know what I would do without him."

On their grounds are the beginnings of a winery: O'Connell followed up a romantic getaway to California wine country by planting 800 Merlot and Cabernet grapevines. She calls the gesture "the most romantic gift."

It's now a favorite spot. Romijn spends weekends in the vineyard with her rocking chair, two poodles and two German shepherds to read scripts, while O'Connell shoots off golf balls or tends to the vines. As a nod to the history of their home — it was a 1930s brothel called The Wagon Wheel Ranch — they plan to eventually bottle Wagon Wheel Wine.

But also sitting behind their home is a giant letter "D" — part of the Disneyland sign that ex-husband John Stamos (Jake in Progress, ER) purchased after he and Romijn had their first date at Disneyland. She says Stamos eventually will come and collect the "D" and the other nine letters she has in storage, but in the meantime, she prefers to think the "D" stands for her character, Dennis.

News of her split from Stamos after six years of marriage broke the day before she walked the red carpet at the April 2004 premiere of her film The Punisher. "We just got outed" by the tabloids, Romijn says. "We had split up quite a while before, but John and I had decided we were just going to keep it between us because we had work to do and I didn't want to be dealing with all that.

"But we were forced to come clean, so I put on a brave face."

Of Stamos, she says, "We don't have a regular relationship anymore." She's hurt by media reports that the couple split because he wanted to start a family and she didn't. Romijn says vehemently that those accounts are wrong. She adds, "Whether or not I wanted to have kids had nothing to do with it. We were together for 10 years, and the reasons (for the divorce) are complicated. I can't wait to have kids. I'm at a point in my life where when I see a pregnant woman, I get tears in my eyes."

She and O'Connell, who she says shares her desire to start a family, plan to wed this summer after she wraps up promoting her third stint as the blue-hued Mystique in X-Men 3: The Last Stand, in theaters May 26. (She has two other films in the can: June's The Alibi, with her X-Men co-star James Marsden, and the upcoming Man About Town, in which she plays the wife of Ben Affleck.)

Her wedding will "not be a big event. I did that a long time ago. We might do it on a vacation and include just our close family."

Oh — and unlike what she did with her name for her previous marriage, she won't be changing her name to Rebecca Romijn-O'Connell.

"I'm probably just going to take the O," the actress jokes. "Rebecca O'Romijn."

Actor JERRY O'CONNELL planted 800 grapevines for fiancee REBECCA ROMIJN, after being inspired by a romantic getaway to California's wine country. The actor followed up his visit by planting 800 Merlot and Cabernet grapevines on the property the couple owns north of Los Angeles. Romijn says the gesture was "the most romantic gift". The burgeoning vineyard is now a favourite spot for the pair to spend their leisure time. The X-MEN beauty has placed a rocking chair in the vineyard and brings her two poodles and German shepherds with her while she reads scripts and O'Connell shoots golf balls or tends to the vines. The couple's home was a former brothel in the 1930s called The Wagon Wheel Ranch and, taking into account the history of their home, they plan to eventually bottle Wagon Wheel Wine.

Q&A Rebecca Romijn

OK, so there's TomKat. ther's Brangelina. Now that you're engaged to Jerry O'connell from Crossing Jordan, what's your tabloid contraction? I don't know! But I'm pretty sure [Tom Cruise and Katie HOlmes] didn't come up with TomKat, so I think you'll have to come up with one on your own. but people do keep asking me if I'm going to take Jerry's last name. I've decided I'm just going to take the O: Rebecca O'Romijn.

Have you two been chased by paparazzi? Once in a while we get followed. We've actually ended up driving to Universal [Studios] and using Jerry's pass to get into the lot just to lose these people. We sit there for five minutes, then turn around and leave. We shoot Pepper Dennis at Fox, so next timewe'll use my pass.

Is there anything you can tell me about the wedding? Obviously, I've been through it before. [Romijn is dovirced from Jon Stamos.] I had a big wedding, and I dont think I want to do that again. It won't be a big, over-the-top thing. It won't be fore anyone but ourselves.

You're 33; can we expect lots of little O'Romijns soon? I am now at the point in my life when I see pregnant women, I get tears in my eyes. I cna't wait to have kids with Jerry! I've never seen him in a bad mood. He has so much energy. He's fun to be around all the time.

Rebecca Romijn living in a brothel

NEW YORK (AP) -- Rebecca Romijn is settling down with her fiance Jerry O'Connell in an old brothel.

"It's called Wagon Wheel Ranch," the star of the WB's "Pepper Dennis" told Time for its issue on newsstands Monday. "Jerry was quite a bachelor when we met. There was nowhere to put your cocktail down in his place. Just the pingpong table."

O'Connell, who stars on NBC's "Crossing Jordan," and Romijn share a 1930s home north of Los Angeles. He put in 800 grapevines last year, and the couple plan to produce their own cabernet, Romijn told the magazine.

The 33-year-old actress, who plays a news reporter on "Pepper Dennis," offered little news on their wedding plans, other than to say it's "definitely" going to be this year.

Romijn, who split from John Stamos in 2004, also stars in the upcoming film "X-Men: The Last Stand."

Rebecca Romijn Recalls Falling For Jerry O'Connell

Rebecca Romijn fell for her fiancé Jerry O'Connell after he agreed to help her film a documentary in Las Vegas, Nevada. The actress was working on a project researching the behind-the-scenes workings of the Bellagio Hotel's elaborate water fountain show and convinced O'Connell to sign up.

She explains, "We'd met years ago at a party and then re-met again in Las Vegas when I was at a party when I was about to start working on a documentary with a friend of mine. We had this fantasy of choreographing the giant fountains at the Bellagio Hotel. We actually did the fountain show and it's in permanent rotation and plays four times a day. Jerry overheard us talking about it when we were in Vegas and said, 'Can I be your boom operator on the movie?'"

O'Connell joined the documentary crew a week later and worked the large sound microphone during the shoot. She adds, "He worked with us for 10 days on this documentary and that's how we met. We made him wear a half-shirt, so every time he would hold the microphone up, his shirt would come up (to the top of his chest) and he was so game I was like, 'You're cool!' It was funny."

X-MEN star REBECCA ROMIJN and fiance JERRY O'CONNELL frequently dress up as goofy characters and go out in public places as a joke. The couple dress up in outrageous costumes, complete with special hair and make-up. She explains, "We're not nightclub people, our idea of fun is getting dressed up. "I have a costume closet at home. Part of it is like daring each other to go out in public dressed like that." The couple were addicted to US reality series SHOWDOG MOMS AND DADS and became obsessed with one of the couples on the show. She adds, "Showdog Moms and Dads is like (the movie ) BEST IN SHOW, but with these very overzealous dog owners. "There was one couple in particular we were inspired by and Jerry and I decided to dress up like them and go to Wal Mart Portrait Studio and have our portrait taken. That's our idea of fun."

A Dash of Fresh 'Pepper'
'X'-person Rebecca Romijn lands in a prime-time comedy.

April 10, 2006

She's learned to guard her privacy, especially since she's engaged to another actor, Jerry O'Connell. "I'd like to talk about Jerry all day long, but I just can't. It's too private," she says. Still, she can't help herself from divulging a few sweet details. For instance, when he's on hiatus from "Crossing Jordan," O'Connell drives her to and from work every day. "It's an extra hour or two that we get to spend together," she says. "We run lines and bounce ideas off each other. And it's really fun." Carpooling with Rebecca and Jerry—that's what passes for excitement when you're working 18-hour days on a new show. "I've already gotten the speech from Jerry where he's, like, 'You have to be able to go out to dinner and have a glass of wine and get your mind off 'Pepper Dennis'," she says. After all, variety, not pepper, is the spice of life.




The April 2006 issue of In Style features an article with Rebecca Romijn. In it, she opens up about her relationship with Jerry. Here are some notable excerpts:

Romijn's idea of serenity in Calabasas, Calif., is a cross between a Swiss chalet and a frontier cottage. Or, as her future father-in-law once dryly observed, the inside of a cuckoo clock. "I thought to myself, Is that an insult?"

"I don't have to tell you how absolutely beautiful Rebecca is," says her besotted fiancé, Jerry O'Connell, "but what I really love about her is that she's a character."

Romijn appears as the brassy wife of a Hollywood talent agent (Ben Affleck) who's trying to get back into his good graces after dallying with another man. "Affleck and I teased her all day long, and she just teased back," adds the director. "There's nothing precious about her." Says O'Connell, who also appears in The Alibi, "She's the most entertaining person I've ever met."

Rebecca wants to have fun no matter what she does," says her fiancé, Jerry O'Connell.

In the summer of 2004 Romijn flew to Las Vegas to produce a project of her own, a documentary titled Wet Dreams about the slipper challenges of choreographing the fountains at the Bellagio hotel (an insanity -- as opposed do a vanity-- project, you might say). It was there she reconnected with O'Connell, whom she had met at a party a few years earlier. The Crossing Jordan actor, already smitten, volunteered his services on the documentary. "I'd have done a lot crazier things to have spent more time with her," he says. 'If she had asked me to paint her house, I would have said yes." From Romijn's veiwpoint, it was an ideal way to test the waters of their mutual attraction. "There was a group of us, and we all went out together to shows at night -- it was great. Jerry is gorgeous, crazy funny and extremely charismatic."

If Stamos once cheekily dubber her Rebecca Remain-Silent for her chartterbox ways, in O'Connell she has found someone who appreciates a gabfest as much as she does. The garrulous couple share a perpetual effervescence and zany elan. Whether trysting at quirky hotels like the Madonna Inn on California's Central Coast, or skipping to the DMV to renew a license, they do it with a blithe spirit. Last summer, back from a decadent wine country jaunt, they added 800 vines of merlot and cabernet grapes to their expansive ranch, with its lemon grove and hundreds of oak trees. "We're vinters!" Romijn says excitedly. "The vineyard was a gift from Jerry. It was the most romantic gift ever."

Their union is a meeting of two coasts: The urbane O'Connell is a native New Yorker ("When I think of wilderness I think of Washington Square Park," he deadpans), while Romijn is the classic outdoorsy California girl. "It's been really fun showing him California, "Romijn says, adding that they're still deliberating over the location of their upcoming wedding. While they got engaged at his parents' Manhattan apartment, the wedding will most likely take place in her home state. What is certain is that it will be a much less lavish affair than her first one, in 1998, complete with an ivory gazar-and-Chantilly-lace Badgley Mischka gown. "It was big, and I don't need to do that again. It's completely different now -- we're not doing this for anybody but ourselves." And though she scoffs at rumors that she's pregnant, Romijn says she's ready for kids.

WEIGHTY ISSUES: O'Connell doesn't understand the fuss: "I never saw her as being overweight, and I feel like she's too skinny right now."

Rebecca and Jerry: Wedding plans revealed!


Don't be surprised if Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's summer vacation plans include "I do"s! A friend of Rebecca's says that Jerry, 32, has been hoping for a big wedding but that Rebecca, 33, has changed his mind. "They talked it through, and now he's cool with a quiet affair," says the pal. "They'll probably head to an island with a few friends and relatives."
After that? Kids! "Rebecca gets pouty when she reads about pregnant actresses," says the pal. "She wants to get started as soon as they're married."

Romijn & O'Connell Together at TCA Tour

Los Angeles, Jan. 21-22, 2006 – We shlepped over to Pasadena this weekend for the last rounds (finally!) of the Television Critics Association winter press tour, with ABC and NBC closing out the marathon look-see sessions.

Does Rebecca Romijn have two TV series’ on competing networks, we wondered upon encountering her at the NBC bash. We’d just seen her last Monday pushing her upcoming WB drama. Nope, she was there supporting her man, "Crossing Jordan’s" Jerry O’Connell. “This is his night. I’ve already had mine”, she said. The pair looked very much in love, and Romijn wore a large diamond ring on her finger, so it seems reports of a breakup were false.

Rebecca Romijn: Supermodel Turned Sitcom Star
February 1, 2006

Supermodel Rebecca Romijn is about to be the sexiest new reporter on the primetime beat in the new WB comedy, "Pepper Dennis." So when "Extra" stopped by the star's set, we had to do a little investigative journalism of our own.

How are the wedding plans coming for Rebecca and fiancé Jerry O'Connell? "Of course I'm pretty busy with this at the moment," Romijn told us. "But we'll figure it out. We've got some time. We'll do it sometime this year."

"It feels really, really good," the star added. "He keeps it real, and I love that."

In her new comedy, Rebecca gets her own reality check as an ambitious Chicago journalist who looses an anchor job to hunk Josh Hopkins.

And before we let the intrepid new reporter go back to work, we just had to show her a photo of her buff fiancé when he was a chubby little newcomer in "Stand by Me."

"That's the cutest thing I've ever seen," Rebecca laughed. "It really was my favorite movie when I was a kid."

Sounds like an exclusive lead story for "Pepper Dennis"! Watch Rebecca Romijn make her own news, starting in April on The WB!



According to Sam Lover at the Coffeeroom Crossing Jordan bboard, The February 2006 issue of In Style magazine features Jerry and Rebecca. Thanks to Tracey for the heads up!

Sam Lover Wrote: I received my February issue of In Style magazine and Jerry and Rebecca are featured on pages 267 ("Love Stories", 292-293 ("Head Over Heels" and page 301 ("Rock My World"). There are about six photos of the couple and the narratives deal with their engagement, Jerry's selecting the stones for the ring, how they met and what's next.

Head Over Heels page 292
Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell

HOW THEY MET While O'Connell, 31, was nervous about asking Romijn, 33, out when he met her at a party in 2004, by the time they were costarring in The Alibi soon after, it was clear the couple had nothing to hide. O'Connell proposed on September 17 at his parents' Manhattan apartment.

LOVE NEST The pair split time between their L.A. homes. "I was nervous when Rebecca saw my place," O'Connell has said. "Her home is beautiful."

WHAT'S NEXT O'Connell is helping Romijn get in shape, and not just to fit into her wedding gown: the actress is playing the sleek Mystique again in X-Men 3. "I've had a lot of romantic dinners," Romijn has said. "It was worth ever chocolate mousse and bottle of wine -- but now it's crunch time."

Rock My World page 301

Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O'Connell

O'Connell was as exacting as a gem dealer and as chivalrous as a literary heartthrob in his search for an appropriately dazzling centerpiece for Romijn's ring. "He came in several times to look at loose diamonds before he found a 5-carat fancy yellow oval," says Zaven Ghanimian of Simon G in Los Angeles.. 'He wanted something unique." O'Connell decided the ring should be completely yellow -- both gold and gems -- in a variation on the style pictured above, from the Simon G collection. "I know she likes yellow," O'Connell said at the time. Producing the ring required four weeks -- the prototype was reconfigured to accommodate the large oval stone -- after which O'Connell picked it up and took it to New York City, where he and Romijn were engaged last September.

Rebecca Romijn and actor Jerry O'Connell are planning their wedding — and it looks like they might have found a neighborhood they'd like to call home as well!

Rebecca, who plays a high strung TV reporter on the upcoming WB show, Pepper Dennis, says of her expected marriage to the Crossing Jordan star: "It's sometime this year." Although she'll give no details on her wedding plans, she says it probably won't be a huge affair.

Meanwhile, however, are she and Jerry already looking for a cool place to live together after they wed? Rebecca confides, "I'm obsessed with a beautiful part of Los Angeles that Jerry and I discovered called Angelino Heights. [There's] a street called Carroll Street with these beautiful Victorians. We were floored by it."

Rebecca is coy about whether she and Jerry might be happy together in their own Victorian house, saying only, "we just checked out this neighborhood. We like to go exploring."

She's not shy about gushing about Jerry. "I'm in love. I'm on cloud nine. We have a lot of similarities. Both of our mothers were public school teachers. My dad and his dad were both artists. Everybody gets along very well." Sounds like a match made in heaven!



According to a recent article, the horror movie Room 6 should be released in July or August of 2006. The film stars Jerry O'Connell and Christine Taylor.

Bottle blonde goes from beer to model career

Fuson, who appeared in the comedies “Shallow Hal” and “American Pie,” has a bigger role in “Room 6,” a horror film starring Jerry O’Connell and Christine Taylor. The movie should debut in theaters in July or August.




For the second year in a row, Jerry will be hosting the Eclipse Awards on the TVG Channel. The awards will be presented on Monday, January 23 in Beverly Hills. TVG will air the show live at 8:00pm EST. This article appeared in Thoroughbred Times:

Posted: 12/20/2005 2:13:00 PM

Actor O'Connell to serve again as Eclipse Awards host

Actor Jerry O'Connell, who stars on the NBC show "Crossing Jordan," will serve as host of the 35th annual Eclipse Awards for the second straight year when the best in Thoroughbred racing from the 2005 season will be honored at a ceremony on January 23 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California."I am very excited about hosting the Eclipse Awards," said O'Connell. "It ranks right up there with the Super Bowl as far as I'm concerned."

Also back this year will be live coverage from Television Games Network. TVG broadcast the ceremony for the first time last year. TVG coverage will begin with a red-carpet preview at 8 p.m. EST featuring interviews with arriving award nominees and celebrities. Coverage will continue with interviews of winners and commentary from TVG analysts.

"TVG's comprehensive coverage of last year's awards program was extremely well received by viewers across the country," said National Thoroughbred Racing Association Commissioner D. G. Van Clief Jr. "As a network that's dedicated to horse racing, TVG will undoubtedly produce another outstanding telecast."

Here are a few reviews of the Eclipse Awards Ceremony:

Through it all, host Jerry O'Connell managed to maintain a graceful enthusiasm for the proceedings, getting off a few good zingers (the John Deere-Hollywood Park turf course crack hit home) and surviving the clunkers (the name of "Dr. G," ousted leader of the Jockeys' Guild, did not belong in the same punchline as Eclipse Award of Merit winner Penny Chenery).

LA Times

And finally: Actor Jerry O'Connell, from the TV series "Crossing Jordan," was the master of ceremonies at the Eclipse Awards. O'Connell noted that retired jockeys Jerry Bailey and Gary Stevens have been hired as television commentators.

"When they were riding, they were always criticizing trainers," O'Connell said. "Let's see what they have to say now."

Bad form -- Even if the criteria is being a celebrity with horse racing connections, Jerry O'Connell is the worst possible host for the Eclipse Awards. He appeared uncomfortable the moment he appeared on stage and told unfunny jokes. The material wasn't necessarily bad, it was just a case of the delivery being plain awful. O'Connell did a terrible job introducing presenters, and his call for a round of applause celebrating the Hall of Famers in the audience was embarrassing.



The January 23rd issue of Us Weekly had this blurb about Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn:

Rebecca & Jerry
Not Breking Up!

Forget that pre-Christmas on-the-rocks rumor about Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn. The pair were the picture of bliss at Sonoma Valley, California's El Dorado Kitchen on December 27. Snuggled at a table for two, Romijn, 33, nibbled on crab cakes and risotto while O'Connell, 31, ate Caesar Provencal salad and short ribs. Says a source at the eatery, "They were so sweet!"



Rebecca Romijn was a presenter at the People's Choice Awards, and had a few words to say about her engagement to Jerry O'Connell:

But in real life, her wedding to Jerry O'Connell will happen "sometime this year." But no babies anytime soon. "According to the tabloids, I've been pregnant for about 14 months now. Ridiculous."

Jerry and Rebecca's wedding woes

Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn have hit an impasse while planning their upcoming wedding -- he wants a big bash while she wants a scaled-down affair. This will be Rebecca's second trip down the aisle, so she's leaning toward a low-key affair -- she'd even like to elope. But Jerry's never been married, so he wants the whole nine yards. "Jerry really wants a fantasy wedding, while Rebecca would be satisfied with a beach bash with just family," the insider says.

One of Rebecca and Jerry's friends says they are trying to work out their differeneces because "they're just so in love!"

Rebecca & Jerry - Holiday Romance

Good news for Rebecca Romijn: Her fiance of three months, Jerry O'Connell, is totally gung-ho for getting domestic. In fact, the actor, who arrived hand in hand with the actress, 33, at the November 20 Hollywood premiere of his new film YOurs, Mine & Ours, tells Us he is already decorating for the holidays. "I jumped ahead of schedule and did the lights on my roof all this weekend," says O'Connell, 31, who shares a Calabasas, California, home with Romijn. "I am that guy on the block. I wanted to have more lights than anyone."

Romijn (with O'Connell at the November 20 Hollywood bash) "was just beaming," says a witness. "As happy as can be!"



Those of you who watched The Apprentice may have noticed a familiar face. Jerry O'Connell was one of the celebrities who attended the charity event to benifit Autism. A review of the finale can be found at Entertainment Weekly.

The big celebrities — Sugar Ray Leonard, Jerry O'Connell, and Carson from Queer Eye (to whom one should never, ever say ''wet and dirty'') — were forced to stand in the middle of the locker-hallway with all the commoners. All in all, the thing looked like crap, and no matter how much money they raised for the charity, I can't imagine it was all that much fun to be there.

*edit* Although Jerry was featured in the report at, he ultimately was not included in the "People Sexiest Men" issue for 2005.

Sunday, mid-afternoon, eating late brunch and drinking hair-of-the-dog Bloodies at the corner of 7th and A — yes, 7A is the place — and saw Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romjin. He was tall and really tan (not J. Simp orange but pretty damn dark) leading her down the sidewalk. They must be making some good love because she looked really thin. She was looking very East Village—one might even say “edgy”…—in a big hat that you’d think held dreads, but I’m pretty sure she had Uncle Jessie stuffed up there!

One of our favourite examples of fashion versatility (who looks just as hip in a puffy vest, ponytail and faded denim as she does in this getup), Romijn clearly understands where and when to strike a pose.

In and around Vancouver until December to shoot X-Men 3, the model-slash-actress has been spotted browsing Main Street's chic boutiques with her Crossing Jordan fiance, Jerry O'Connell.



Jerry was interviewed in the November 7-13th TV Guide. Thanks to RobandChrismom for the news.



Jerry recently participated in the annual Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times Halloween Carnival, where he dressed up as Clifford the Big Red Dog. Photos from the event can be seen at

Photos were also featured in People Magazine and In Touch Magazine.

Jerry Loses His Head

"If this acting thing doesn't work out, I certainly won't be doing this," barked Jerry O'Connell. "It's a little warm, man!" The sweat was worth it, since Jerry's appearance as Clifford helped raise more than $600,000 at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times 13th Annual Halloween Carnival in LA. Jerry says his costume is nothing compared to the torture his fiancee, Rebecca Romijn, is going through for her part in X-Men 3. "She has to go to work at 3 a.m." he reported after a recent set visit. "I thought she was kidding when she woke me up."

For what it's worth, this gossip item appeared in the October 24th issue of Star Magazine:

Rebecca Romijn's Cute Love Chub!

The way to Rebecca Romijn's heart is through her stomach. The 5'10" model-actress has always watched her weight, but over the last year while dating fiance Jerry O'Connell, 31, she appears to have added a few love pounds, going from 125 lbs. to nearly 140! According to a freind, "Jerry's set a really bad example!"

The actor loves snacking and lavish dining, and Rebecca, 32, "finds it hard to deprive herself when he's eating all the time." The friend says, "Jerry is so in love that he couldn't care less if she carries extra weight." But she wants to fit into a svelte dress for their New Year's Eve wedding, "so she told Jerry to keep the Cheetos out of the house until then!"

The October 10-16 issue of Inside TV had an article about Crossing Jordan. This is the blurb about Woody and Jordan:

The Romance

Fans (and the stars) are rooting for Jordan and Woody to become a couple, but Woody's recent brush-off of Jordan, after getting shot, will delay their relationship, as he gets involved with his shrink (Leslie Bibb) and Jordan cozies up to other guys. "The audience wants to see Jordan and Jerry's character get back together, and that's where it'll probably end up," says producer Kring. "But we are going to see this play out first."



An interview with Jerry from Australia's TV Soap magazine (June 27, 2005) has been added to the Interviews section of the web site.



The October 10th issue of Life and Style had this article about Jerry and Rebecca and their engagement.
