MEXICO CITY -- It's only a supporting role on a soap opera.

It debuted this autumn on the Television Azteca network.

The couple, who spent part of 2007 trying to hide their relationship, is still on amicable terms, another source says.

Seedy, sour and looking for any excuse to sit at a bar and drink instead of practicing law -- that's Grant Cooper, the latest incarnation of Don Johnson (Miami Vice and Nash Bridges) in Just Legal, a new drama from producer Jerry Bruckheimer that premieres tonight on the WB network. Think Paul Newman in the feature film The Verdict. But instead of Boston, this weekly series is set in a noir-ish section of Venice, Calif., where Johnson's Cooper, a washed-up attorney, seems destined to spend his final days in an alcohol haze.

"Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man" attempts to raise junk to the level of American pop myth. But this particular piece of garbage is not redeemable -- sewers stink and so does "Harley Davidson."Simon Wincer's new film tries to redo "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" in a slightly futuristic context -- the year is 1996 and the ozone layer is gone -- with motorcycles instead of horses. Wincer's good with horses in historical contexts -- he did "Phar Lap" and TV's "Lonesome Dove" -- but he takes a terrible spill here.

The producers of ''Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man'' were not paid by either corporation to promote their products, according to Big John Studd, who plays a role in the film.''Actually, the producers had to work hard to get permission to use those names,'' he said. ''Neither [company wanted to] endorse or sanction the film, particularly Harley Davidson, because the movies have given motorcycles a bad image,'' he said. ''They were very cautious.''The film, which is set five years in the future, has Don Johnson -- as the Marlboro man -- shoot his Kawasaki motorcycle to death.

What a mess.Despite trying so hard to be equal parts "Fargo" and "Double Indemnity," "Goodbye Lover" succeeds only in being leaden. It's an unfunny black comedy and an unmoody film noir featuring one of the least enjoyable casts of characters in recent memory. And it's directed with great solemnity by Roland Joffe, who seems under the impression he's still making "The Killing Fields."Patricia Arquette is Sandra, the movie's fatal femme, a blond dynamo with a wicked pair of legs and an even more wicked disposition.

MILL VALLEY, Calif. -- Between now and Election Day, politicians will fall over themselves in trying to convince us they are tougher on crime than their opponents.Of course, no matter who gets elected, it won't have a radical impact on the crime rate. This is good news because -- well, frankly, we need crime.Imagine for a moment that tomorrow noon, all crime disappears. No more burglaries, robberies, larcenies. Within days, entire industries would go belly-up: police departments, detective agencies, security guards, gun manufacturers, locksmiths, self-defense teachers, sociologists, alarm makers, etc.Why, the construction business alone would go into a major tailspin if it wasn't engaged in building prisons.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - In a medium obsessed with the young and the restless, two veteran actors are smashing the age barrier to star in fall series. Dennis Hopper, 69, plays a Pentagon official in NBC's E-Ring. Don Johnson, 55, portrays an over-the-hill lawyer in WB's Just Legal. Both dramas come from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who has reshaped prime time with CSI, Without a Trace and Cold Case. He also has done quite a lot for middle-age actors who never will be confused with male models and boy toys.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - You take away the mahogany tan, the convertible, the white suits with pastel shirts and what have you? You have Don Johnson the person. Buried in the debris of publicity for most of his adult life, Johnson has not only survived the white-hot lights, he's turned them inward. Always an underrated actor, Johnson has given up his breezy banter for words of significance in his latest teleplay, Word of Honor, premiering Saturday on TNT. Johnson plays a Vietnam veteran who harbors a secret which threatens to destroy several lives 30 years after the fact.

Air it during sweeps, and they will come.Nowhere was that better demonstrated than this past weekend, when Part 1 of NBC's near-universally panned "Noah's Ark" (The Sun's David Zurawik called it a bomb, and that was one of his nicer terms) garnered enough viewers to make it the most-watched film to air on TV this season.Nielsen numbers give Noah and his rain a 20.9 rating, 32 share (which means nearly one-third of all TV sets in use Sunday night were helping spread Noah-mania throughout the land)

A melee at the Maryland House of Correction Annex sent four correctional officers to the hospital yesterday as legions of their colleagues used tear gas and pepper spray to force more than 90 inmates into their cells.The disturbances, in which inmates poured water over the floor of the maximum-security prison's D building and refused to return to their cells, began shortly after 2 p.m. and ended when the prisoners surrendered two hours later.It was the second serious incident at the Jessup prison in two days; a fight in a mess hall Tuesday wounded 12 officers and seven inmates.
