There is certainly no shortage of outstanding leading men working in American TV drama these days. Jon Hamm, Damian Lewis and Michael C. Hall to name a few. But it would be hard to find any whose proven range is greater than that of Dominic West, star of BBC America's "The Hour. " It extends from Detective Jimmy McNulty raging drunk in a grimy Baltimore train yard late at night in HBO's "The Wire," to Professor Henry Higgins prancing across the stage in tweeds with Eliza Doolittle in an English revival of "My Fair Lady" that opened last week.

NAPERVILLE, Ill. - William Hector doesn't just teach high school students about U.S. history. He teaches them about life - and how they can save lives. "If we could just increase organ donations, thousands of lives could be saved every year," Hector says. "It's the most important thing I can teach students." It's a subject the 53-year-old knows a lot about. He was diagnosed with diabetes as a high school sophomore, and his kidneys failed in 1985. After a 13-month wait, he received a kidney transplant - only to have his pancreas shut down, requiring a pancreas transplant a year later.

El Cantante purports to tell the story of 1960s and 1970s salsa sensation Hector Lavoe, but it's basically the tale of a womanizing man who marries the worst possible wife - a spouse who hangs on to him for dear life and knows how to use his guilt to hold them together with a spike. Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez star as Hector and his wife, Puchi, but this is no vanity production. Anthony plays Hector as a musical dynamo and an emotional weakling who can't say no to drugs or sex. Lopez plays Puchi as a woman who props him up when the going is good and uses his failures to cement his need for her. In her mind, she's alternately a cheerleader or a domestic rock.

SAN ANTONIO -- Hector Galan figures he must have been in the right place at the right time. The award-winning filmmaker, who is based in Austin, Texas, met PBS President Paula Kerger in San Antonio at events scheduled long before Ken Burns' 14-hour documentary The War became the subject of a national controversy. So Galan thinks he might have been in mind when discussions turned to who would help the network out of the crisis that developed when critics charged that Native American and Latino voices were excluded from the documentary about World War II. A half-million Latino soldiers served in the war, many earning decorations of valor.
