Birds of a feather flock to NBC gala

Crossing Jordan's Jerry O'Connell said his brother Charlie is still blissfully in love with Sarah Brice, the woman he chose on the most recent edition of ABC's The Bachelor. "It's serious," Jerry said. "She's moving out to L.A.; (they'll be) living together and she's close to our family."

As for his own girlfriend, O'Connell couldn't stop raving about Rebecca Romijn and her starring role on a show slated for midseason — on WB.

"It's typical of me to come to an NBC party and talk about a Warner Bros. project, but Pepper Dennis is my favorite," O'Connell said. "Rebecca's a modern-day Lucille Ball, and I'm really proud of her."

In a nod to Romijn's blue X-Men character, Mystique, plans are underway to have Pepper sprayed in the face with blue paint. O'Connell said Romijn has just begun work on X-Men 3, which will involve "finding a cure for mutants."

CROSSING JORDAN NEWS

Fans of Crossing Jordan have some surprises to look forward to in the new season. Woody and Jordan will find new love interests, and look for another Las Vegas crossover episode in October. Here are a few recent articles and a video interview with Jerry and Jill.

VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH JERRY AND JILL

Meanwhile, actor Jerry O'Connell and co-star Jill Hennessy are getting new love interests on "Crossing Jordan," but is it really because the stars can't stand each other?

No -- O'Connell and Hennessy are actually friends and are comfortable playing love interests on the show. Although Jerry told us, "Last season we had a kiss, and she slipped me a little bit of tongue."

"He told you that?" Hennessy joked. "I told him not to say anything."

Also at the Vegas bash was Canadian-born star Jill Hennessy, who shoots a Crossing Jordan/Las Vegas crossover episode next week. "There'll be a lot of hot and heavy action between Jordan and (Duhamel's character) Danny McCoy," reports Hennessy. What is it with this guy? Sheesh.

Crossing Jordan heads into a fifth season this fall and Hennessy says the writers are going for broke. New love interests are being brought in for both her character and Jerry O'Connell's Woody.

"At the end of last season, I was really hoping Jordan and Woody would seal the deal," says Hennessy. Fearing that they were painting themselves into a Sam and Diane-sized corner, the writers have stirred things up with new love interests for both characters, although "later on, something will occur that's very interesting and bizarre and surprising," said Hennessy.

STARS ALIGN FOR CAST MEMBERS FROM NBC'S "CROSSING JORDAN" AND "LAS VEGAS" AS THEY TEAM UP FOR A SECOND CROSSOVER EVENT IN OCTOBER

Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh (Jill Hennessy), Detective Woody Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell), Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel) and Sam Jane Marquez (Vanessa Marcil) Team Up Again

BURBANK, Calif. -- July 24, 2005 -- Stars from two of NBC's most popular dramas -- "Crossing Jordan" (Sundays, 10-11 p.m. ET) and "Las Vegas" (Mondays, 9-10 p.m. ET) -- will team up again to solve a multi-city murder in a second crossover event for broadcast on consecutive Sunday and Monday dates in October.

Jill Hennessy and Jerry O'Connell from "Crossing Jordan" will join Josh Duhamel and Vanessa Marcil from "Las Vegas" in appearing in both episodes.

The multi-city crime begins on "Crossing Jordan" when a Las Vegas showgirl shows up at the Boston morgue, sets a corpse ablaze -- and then hurls herself out the window. She leaves behind one clue: an employee ID card from the Montecito Casino in Las Vegas. Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh (Hennessy) calls Danny McCoy (Duhamel), an acquaintance and Director of Montecito Surveillance and Security, to help solve the mystery. Together Jordan, Detective Woody Hoyt (O'Connell) and Danny follow clues that reveal a heist is in the works in Boston.

When Woody realizes that the strings are all being pulled by a mobster in Vegas, he's on the next plane out and the mystery continues the next night on "Las Vegas." Woody works with the Montecito Casino host Sam Jane Marquez (Marcil) in Vegas while Jordan and Danny remain on the case in Boston. As the clues are revealed, so are the mutual attractions between the crime-solving duos.

Last season's November 7-8 two-part crossover, "What Happens in Vegas...Dies in Boston," generated the highest ratings of the season for both dramas among adults 18-49. "Crossing Jordan's" 5.3 rating matched the series' highest result since May 13, 2002 and "Las Vegas'" 5.8 is the drama's second-highest rating ever.

"Crossing Jordan" features a cadre of coroners eager to offer their forensic skills in order to bring murderers to justice and offer closure to the families of their victims. Under the guidance of Dr. Garret Macy (Miguel Ferrer, "Traffic"), Hennessy (NBC's "Law & Order") stars as Dr. Cavanaugh, a sexy, smart and fearless Boston medical examiner with a checkered career past. Rounding out the talented team of the Boston M.E.'s office are grief counselor Lily Lebowski (Kathryn Hahn, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"), forensic entomologist "Bug" (Ravi Kapoor, "Gideon's Crossing") and criminalist Nigel Townsend (Steve Valentine, "The Muse"). The coroners rely on Detective Woody Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell, "Kangaroo Jack") to put in the legwork to hunt down the perpetrators of the crimes they investigate.

"Crossing Jordan" is from Tailwind Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. Tim Kring (NBC's "Providence") is creator and executive producer; Dennis Hammer and Allan Arkush are executive producers.

"Las Vegas" is a fast-paced, sexy drama follows the elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged with maintaining the security of one of "Sin City's" largest resorts and casinos. Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee James Caan ("The Godfather," "Misery") stars as Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito Resort & Casino. With his prot?g? McCoy (Duhamel, "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton"), an ex-U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, they deal with a variety of security challenges. Molly Sims ("Starsky and Hutch"), Nikki Cox ("Nikki"), James Lesure ("For Your Love"), Marcil ("Beverly Hills, 90210") also starring is new cast member Lara Flynn Boyle, who will portray the casino's new owner next season. In another new addition, Rachael Leigh Cook ("She's All That") also will appear in a recurring role.

Creator Gary Scott Thompson ("The Fast and the Furious") serves as executive producer of "Las Vegas," along with Gardner Stern (NBC's "Law & Order," "NYPD Blue"), Scott Steindorff ("The Human Stain"), Justin Falvey ("Rescue Me") and Darryl Frank ("Rescue Me") for "Las Vegas," from NBC Universal Television Studio and DreamWorks Television.

JERRY HELPS REBECCA GET IN SHAPE FOR X-MEN

7/27/05

The July 18th issue of People Magazine had this report on Jerry and Rebecca (thanks to Tracey for the info).

Rebecca's workout secret
Rebecca Romijn has the hots for her personal trainer. "He has the most beautiful body I've ever seen?" she tells us. Not to worry, the man helping her shape up for x-men 3 is her beau, Jerry O'Connell. The couple have hit the gym daily since mid-June so that Romijn can don her form fitting bodysuit to reprise the role of Mystique in August. "I've had a great year with my boyfriend: I fell in love and had a lot of romantic dinners," says Romijn, who admits she wasn't exactly watching her figure earlier in the year. "It was worth every last chocolate mousse and bottle of wine. But now it's crunch time."

CADDY COURTS SUPER RICH

Jerry and girlfriend Rebecca Romijn were mentioned in a recent Cadillac auto article. To read the full article go to Detroit News. Here is an excerpt from the article:

Moving more upscale, Caddy courts super rich

High-end division goes to Calif.'s wine country to establish its brand with wealthy prospects.

By Ann Job / Special to The Detroit News
General Motors Corp.

Cadillac provided free test drives in its vehicles -- from an Escalade to the SRX and XLR -- to auction guests at the tony Calistoga Ranch.

NAPA VALLEY, Calif. -- Wine connoisseurs who attended a multimillion-dollar wine auction here last month didn't flinch at bidding up to $650,000 for four bottles of wine and a dinner. But some in the high-brow group at Auction Napa Valley had questions about spending far less on a Cadillac.

GM also brought some star power. Actors Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell served as the company's guests at auction activities.

Romijn, who starred in "X2," drives a complimentary Cadillac SRX. "I love it," she said.

O'Connell, who stars in television's "Crossing Jordan," recalled that his father, who's British, vowed to "buy a Cadillac, a big one" if he got enough money after he moved to America.

Today, O'Connell said he passes his Cadillacs to his dad after driving them for a few years.

Cadillac provided more than a dozen complimentary vehicles and drivers to the auction's top bidders to use during the event.

"I have a trainer," Jerry, 31, has said. That should explain how he gets that hot bod -- and surfing regularly doesn't hurt. "But a lot of keeping in shape is diet.... I've definitely cut down on drinking, and I stay away from fast food."
