JERRY MENTIONED IN USA WEEKEND

10/31/02

This article appeared in the October 20th edition of USA Weekend's Who's News. Thanks to Devils21fan for passing this along.

NBC's "Crossing Jordan" is pulling out all the stops to beat the competition this season, and Jerry O'Connell is one of them. He plays Det. Woody Hoyt, who helps Jill Hennessy's Jordan solve crimes while adding sexual tension to her life. O'Connell , 28, tells me his mom has been dubious about some of his roles, but not this one. "I went home to New York, and now [she's] introducing me like, 'This is my son; he's a detective.' " Ah, but will she be so proud of his next part? He's a hairdresser who chases a runaway kangaroo for the mob in "Kangaroo Jack", due early next year. Offscreen, O'Connell is seeing swim star Janet Evans, which can be a bit intimidating when it comes to athletics. "Anyone who is an Olympic athlete is pretty much better than me at any sport."

IN THE FACE OF AN UNTHINKABLE DISASTER, JORDAN'S EMOTIONAL STRENGTHS ARE PUT TO THE TEST -- When Boston is rattled by a devastating explosion leaving an office high-rise in ruins, Jordan (Jill Hennessy) and the rest of the morgue staff lead the recovery effort, stumbling across a lone survivor (guest star Fredric Lane) trapped inside the concrete pile, whom she must keep alive long enough for search and rescue teams to reach him. Amid the chaos, Garret (Miguel Ferrer) takes charge of the grim task of identifying the casualties while Nigel (Steve Valentine) and Bug (Ravi Kapoor) lend their forensic abilities to the FBI and Det. Woody Hoyt (guest star Jerry O'Connell) as they hunt for the madman behind this act of terrorism. Lorraine Toussaint and Kathryn Hahn also star.

TV APPEARANCES

Jerry was recently a guest on the Wayne Brady show. You may still be able to catch the interview on Thursday the 24th (thanks to Nanny for passing the news along) Jerry talks about some of his hobbies which include playing ping pong and singing at Karaoke bars. He even treated a girl from the audience to his rendition of Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life."

Jerry also appeared on the Monday October 21st episode of Extra. While on the set of Crossing Jordan Jerry tells us , "I'm probably the best drunken karaoke-er there is." He was then asked if Woody would make sweet music with Jordan this season. Jerry replied, "I think my character is going to get a little something something."

JERRY AND CHARLIE OUT AND ABOUT

10/23/02

Jerry and his brother Charlie attended the premiere of "Kiss the Bride" on October 23rd. Charlie O'Connell has a supporting role in the movie. View photos of the brothers at wireimage.com (search for Jerry O'Connell).

The brothers were also recently seen at Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson's birthday bash at Guy's Bar on Beverly Boulevard. Apparently there was an interesting photo scavenger hunt that required teams to strip down for a photo in their own birthday suits. Here's the news from Ted Casablanca's "The Awful Truth" at E! Online (thanks to Tanea3 for the info):

Now, the splashy fun went down around H-town prior to the actual soiree. The invitees (which included everyone from BSB A.J. McLean to the O'Connell bros.) kicked off the dripping, Kiehl's-showered evening with a very detailed and daring scavenger hunt. And here's where things get downright--let's just say it, shall we?--nekkid. As I'm afraid the hunt required a pic of the entire team stripped down to their barest essentials.
