Cattrall: 'Sex and the City' movie sequel in the works

"Yes, there will be a sequel" to Sex and the City. Kim Cattrall (Samantha in the HBO series and the film) acknowledged during an interview on The Paul O'Grady Show in Britain that they're shooting another big-screen version.

Plans for a sequel have been buzzing for sometime, reports Usmagazine.com.

In September, the show's star, Sarah Jessica Parker, said a sequel depended on the story. "If we can't tell a story that's really worthy of an audience, then we won't do it," she said.

The movie grossed almost $153 million domestically, and more than $408 million worldwide in theaters and has already made more than $60 million in DVD sales, according to the-numbers.com.

A bumpy ride?

Keri Russell (Felicity) will play scheming starlet Eve in the Actors' Fund one-night-only reading of All About Eve, Variety reports.

She joins a cast that includes Annette Bening (as Margo Channing), Angela Lansbury, Cynthia Nixon, Peter Gallagher, Joel Grey and Jennifer Tilly, among others.

The Nov. 10 event is a benefit for the Actors' Fund, a service organization for performers and behind-the-scenes professionals. It will be held at the Eugene O'Neill Theater on Broadway.

That face in the crowd

If you were watching President-elect Barack Obama's acceptance speech Tuesday night, you might have noticed Oprah Winfrey in the crowd. Like many, she had tears in her eyes as she leaned on the man slightly in front of her.

Now TMZ.com is reporting that the comforting shoulder belonged to a complete stranger to Winfrey. But TMZ has identified him as Sam Perry, a corporate development consultant. Now, with that mystery solved, we can go on to other matters.

TV's news moves

Now that the 2008 election is over, TV networks and news channels have started shuffling personnel and labels.

At ABC, Jake Tapper, who had been following the Obama campaign, has been named senior White House correspondent. He replaces Martha Raddatz, who will be the network's senior foreign affairs correspondent. Jon Karl moves from the national security beat to become ABC's senior congressional correspondent.

Over at Fox News, the 5 p.m. hour switches from America's Election HQ to America's News HQ.

MSNBC has renamed its 6 p.m. slot hosted by David Gregory from The Race for the White House to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as it shifts from the election horse race to the Obama transition in the Oval Office.

And at CNN, Campbell Brown's 8 p.m. berth has been retitled Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull, from Campbell Brown: Election Center.
