JERRY MENTIONED IN TED'S "THE AWFUL TRUTH"

8/30/02

Jerry O'Connell was mentioned in the August 29th edition of Ted Casablanca's "The Awful Truth" at E! Online. (Thanks to dmk and Shari_Lynn for passing the news along) Here's what Ted had to say:

More than ready to dish about life on camera was jovial Swimfan guest Jerry O'Connell, who made a beeline toward me with a definite agenda on his mind.

"Let's talk about Anna Nicole," insisted J.O.C., whose date, appropriately enough, was four-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Janet Evans. "Been watching," I asked?

[Smith] "I've watched them all," he said of Anna's weekly excellent adventures on E!, and then leaned in and murmured, "Did you watch the show last week?"

"How could I miss it?"

"Man. I don't know," he said, arms crossed, head shaking. "You know what I'm talking about? When she went to the bathroom? What was that? I don't know what to say here. I'm still processing it."

So are the rest of us, Jer-babe, so are the rest of us.

Prime-beef P.S.: "My brother and I went on vacation to Mexico," added Mr. O., "and as a joke, we got matching red Speedos. We dared each other to wear them down to the pool. We lasted, like, 10 minutes. But all of the men were trying to talk to us."

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME - Season Premiere
09-23-2002 9:30PM

A RELENTLESS JORDAN ZEROS IN ON THE TRUTH BEHIND HER MOTHER'S MURDER IN SPECIAL 90-MINUTE SEASON PREMIERE - 3000 miles from Boston, Jordan (Jill Hennessy) continues her search -- with her unwilling companion, Det. Woody Hoyt (guest star Jerry O'Connell) -- for the man (guest star Jack Laufer) who might know the truth about her mother's murder and put the young medical examiner's childhood demons to rest. In the wake of his notorious corner's disappearance, Garret (Miguel Ferrer) must stop a brutal serial killer preying on the streetwalkers of Boston, while sizing the auspicious new addition to his department, Dr. Elaine Duchamps (Lorraine Toussaint, "Any Day Now"), and avoiding the political fury surrounding the case while protecting his friend, District Attorney Jack Olson (guest star William Russ). Max (Ken Howard) struggles with his own legal issues, as he faces criminal charges due to his involvement in the recently unearthed Redding case. Ravi Kapoor, Steve Valentine and Kathryn Hahn also star.

"Some of you may have heard by now that Jerry O'Connell has joined 'Crossing Jordan' as a possible love interest for Jill Hennessey this season. So will we actually see him crossing Jordan's bedroom floor any time soon? I asked Jerry just that question at the pool side premiere party for SwimFan last week, and the 28 year old charmer insisted he had no idea. Jerry then went on to talk about his character and mentioned he's been spending a lot of time at the gym getting beefcaked up for a love scene in the fifth episode. Hum - Jerry Jerry quite contrary."

THE SCOOP ON KANGAROO JACK

8/27/02

E! Online's Movie Scoop with Anderson Jones has some news about the movie "Kangaroo Jack."

"If you're like me, and you're not, you may have been wondering what happened to 'Down and Under', the Jerry Bruckheimer action comedy that stars Jerry O'Connell and my pal Anthony Anderson. So when I ran into Anthony at the [ ] barbershop over the weekend I asked him 'What happened to Down and Under?' He told me that the movie which follows two dimwitted New Yorkers to the Australian Outback where they lose the mob's money to a kangaroo has been undergoing reshoots. Now usually that's a bad sign. But in this case Anthony tells me that after a wild response from kids to the movie at test screenings they are adding more scenes with that lovable kangaroo who steals. Which may explain why the movie has been rechristened Kangaroo Jack."

HOW STAR WARS CHANGED MY LIFE

8/15/02

This quote from Jerry was found in the article 'How Star Wars Changed My Life' at EOnline.com. Thanks to Shari_Lynn for passing it along.

Jerry O'Connell
"Every time I go onscreen, there's a little bit of Luke Skywalker somewhere up there. I saw it for the first time with my grandmother, and the big joke in my family is that when the lights went down, I leaned over to her and said, 'Grandma, why is it so dark in here?' Any time I hear the Star Wars theme, it's like Marcel Proust--I immediately transport back to being with my grandmother watching that movie, God rest her soul."

Jerry O'Connell On...
The appeal of Hard-to-get women

Guys love to work for their dates. It's the classic cookie-in-the-cookie-jar situation -- you're told you can't have something, and that only makes you want it more. I'm definitely attracted to women who look like they're going to require a lot of work but will appreciate my effort. For the ones I really want, I have to have my A game on.

One "no" is not going to discourage most men. Once I met a girl who wasn't ready to give me her phone number right away; she made me memorize her e-mail address. Every time I wrote her an e-mail she thought was funny, she gave me another digit of her number. Ten e-mails later, I finally pieced the whole thing together. That was hard -- I had to break out the thesaurus on several occasions. But there was a sense of accomplishment, that I'd really earned the number. You don't get that with some girl who goes, "Here's my number -- call me," then tries to drag you into her house on the first date. I'm scared of women like that. I start to think, My God, I'm funny, but not that funny. How many other guys have been here before me?

O'Connell Stars in Down and Under [Kangaroo Jack], which hits theaters in January 2003.
