He looks gigantic. He is gigantic. The only movie star who JTC currently rents out rooms in his house, all 6 foot 4 of him, now sits splayed and loose on sofa in a downtown hotel room, tie askew, legs up, watching some jocks hustle and scramble on the television. He looks like a regular guy, in fact, home from work, in those first relaxed moments before the tie comes off, when the weary body just wants to sag into something soft for a few minutes of downtime.If Danny Glover seems so much like a regular guy in person, then perhaps that's the largest part of his considerable charm on screen.

Hundreds of health care workers — many who say they can't afford care from the hospitals where they're employed — demanded better wages and benefits at a rally Thursday where actor and activist Danny Glover was on hand to back their cause. Some workers came from work, still dressed in scrubs, to tell their stories about juggling bills to make it on small salaries. Many talked about holding side jobs. They were nurse's assistants, laundry workers and those who check in patients and serve them food.

It is the morning after the Rodney King verdict and Danny Glover looks haggard and drawn. Understandable, since he worked until 2 a.m. on "The Saint of Fort Washington," a film he's co-producing and co-starring in (with Matt Dillon) as a homeless man. He and Mr. Dillon were shooting take after take in the dark, chilly Manhattan streets.And yet here he is, arriving at 8:45 a.m. sharp at a Park Avenue office suite, wearing leather sandals and a light beige suit. Though the whites in his large expressive eyes seem stained with fatigue, he is ready to settle in for interviews connected with "Lethal Weapon 3," the latest in a lucrative series of cop-chase carnivals pairing Mr. Glover, as veteran Los Angeles police detective Roger Murtaugh, with Mel Gibson, as Murtaugh's gonzo partner Martin Riggs.

"Pure Luck" is Martin Short's lousy luck.How anyone so funny on TV -- his Ed Grimley creation alone earns him a place in the comic Pantheon -- ends up in so many crummy flicks remains a mystery.But there's no secret why "Pure Luck's" a flop. It's an Americanization of the French film "Le Chevre" by Francis Veber, who has made a business of licensing his films to Hollywood. "The Toy," "The Tall Blond Man with One Red Shoe," and "Three Fugitives" were all crummy movies based on mediocre Veber orginals.

Whatever you do, don't call Danny Glover a role model.You can call him an actor, a husband, a father, a former cab driver. You can mention his volunteer work with literacy programs, sickle cell anemia and youngsters. If you want to be daring, you can even suggest he's a seemingly all-around good guy. But unless you want to watch him scrunch up his face and grow slightly exasperated, skip the role model stuff."I never talk about being a role model," said the 43-year-old, who was in Baltimore yesterday to promote his upcoming film, "To Sleep with Anger," which opens Oct. 26. "I don't think it's fair.

'To Sleep With Anger'Starring Danny Glover.Released by Goldwyn.Rated PG.*** 1/2Beware Harry Mention. Charming, sweet-talking, gulling, the old rogue will have your soul in his pocket in a second if you just let him into your life.What Harry offers is all the old pleasures of the hardest kind of masculinity: the pleasures of hard liquor and soft women, the pleasures of having it all now, the pleasures of vanquishing a foe in the helter-skelter of a knife fight, the pleasures of forgetting loyalties in favor of feeding only the hungry self.

Sheila Parsons is a big fan of actor Danny Glover and stood in line to get his autograph yesterday. But she wasn't braving frigid, wet conditions at the Inner Harbor just for him, and he wasn't there promoting a new movie. Both participated in Maryland's first Kidney Walk at Rash Field, an event organized by the National Kidney Foundation that drew about 200 people. Some of them, such as Parsons, are suffering from kidney disease and awaiting transplants. "You are truly, truly the faithful out here," Glover said, addressing the crowd huddled beneath a wooden pagoda, before the walk.

If you're one of the stars of "Lethal Weapon 4," if you were on the crew of "Lethal Weapon 4," if your brother worked on "Lethal Weapon 4," you're gonna love "Lethal Weapon 4," a rip-snorting thrill ride that's more a self-indulgent frat party than a movie.Too bad audiences are going to feel left out, particularly audiences with a fondness for plot or pacing.Even more than its predecessors, "Lethal Weapon 4" is a bunch of set pieces strung together with the slimmest of threads, explosions followed by crashes followed by fisticuffs followed by more explosions.

3:30 p.m. [Comedy Central] Offbeat, quirky - that would be just a start to describe this comedy. It has Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Danny Glover, Bill Murray, and Owen and Luke Wilson (right). I won't even try to summarize the plot, but part of the story concerns Luke Wilson's Richie, a former tennis star who had to quit the game after having a breakdown in the middle of a big match. So, according to the "watch it" rules I just made up, that qualifies the movie for this space.

Tim Allen was born to play a dog. He's been practicing since before he became a TV star - the growling, the panting, the crotch fixation. Disney's remake of The Shaggy Dog uses Allen to great effect in a comedy about a workaholic dad who has to be bitten by a magical dog and become canine to find out the truth about his family and the real villains in a trial he is in the middle of. The Shaggy Dog (Walt Disney Pictures) Starring Tim Allen, Robert Downey Jr., Kristin Davis, Danny Glover.

I WAS THERE when it happened. Our fact-finding group from TransAfrica Forum had just returned from Venezuela and was waiting for our baggage to be unloaded from the plane at the Miami International Airport. We had cleared immigration with no problem and were almost ready for connecting flights after a grueling weeklong tour. After a significant wait, our bags eventually started to arrive on the carousel. But nothing came for Danny Glover. The actor, known for his roles in the Lethal Weapon films, is also a human rights activist.

"Beloved" is the movie that couldn't be made, and was, about people who couldn't go on, and did.Admirers of "Beloved," Toni Morrison's novel about a former slave trying to rebuild her life during Reconstruction, were understandably skeptical when they heard that the Pulitzer Prize-winning book was being adapted for the screen. How could a movie ever begin to capture the book's complex structure, its poetic language, its interiority and rhythm?Director Jonathan Demme has solved that problem by narrowing his focus while hewing strictly to the novel's visual details and emotional tone.
