In an unusual early start time - due to the pending Grand Prix of Baltimore - the Orioles' first pitch is scheduled for 12:35 p.m. If you are coming here, I hope you left early. Like Tuesday or last weekend. The streets are already a mess (and the Russell Street ramp is closed, though it wasn't supposed to be). The lineups are out and Matt Wieters is getting a day off, just protocol for the starting catcher for a day game following a night game. Mark Reynolds is batting cleanup for the first time this season.

Playing at a multiplex more or less near you: monarchs, scoundrels, illicit lovers and the occasional fighter. And every one of them is singing. Welcome to opera in the 21st century, which you can now enjoy while munching from vats of buttered popcorn and slurping oversized soft drinks. For 75 years, the Metropolitan Opera has extended its reach with live radio broadcasts of Saturday-afternoon performances. Late last month, the company went a giant step further by introducing high-definition, surround-sound satellite simulcasts of select matinees to movie houses throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and, by delayed transmission, Japan.

With Edward Norton, what you see is what you get." At least that's what John Curran, the director of The Painted Veil, said of his unconventional star. Neil Burger, the director of The Illusionist, sees more shadows. "Edward's an actor of amazing stature, intensely smart and, at times, I'd guess, an enigma even unto himself."

Marcello Mastroianni, Phillipe Noiret, Ugo Tognazzi and Michel Piccoli star; even with that cast, viewers are advised to see it on an empty stomach.

On any given Friday, their names turn up on the posters at the neighborhood cineplex - at the bottom, billed well after the stars. They're the cop mistakenly tracking down the hero, the good-looking eye candy in the middle of an ensemble, a victim or the heroine's love interest. Unless, of course, they find a home in an indie drama or comedy. Then, they're the lead, the star. Maybe even a producer, because their name, such as it is, got the movie financed and released. They are the nonleading leading men, movie stars with the talent and good looks to be top-billed but who don't necessarily choose to go that route.
