The Hasim Rahman-Lennox Lewis rematch isn't a done deal after all. Rahman, the world heavyweight champion from Baltimore, decided not to sign a deal with Home Box Office for a rematch with Lewis after Shelly Finkel, an adviser to Mike Tyson, on Tuesday asked Rahman to reconsider a Showtime offer. Rahman's co-manager, Steve Nelson, said he, Rahman, co-manager Stan Hoffman and promoter Cedric Kushner met earlier Tuesday in New York to discuss the two deals. There Rahman decided to accept HBO's guaranteed $17 million deal instead of Showtime's $16.25 million offer to fight Tyson, according to sources close to the negotiations.

"Twenty-nine children dead. Two reporters searching for the truth ... no matter where it takes them. Based on actual events." That's the promotional campaign Showtime is running for the film, "Who Killed Atlanta's Children?" which premieres tomorrow night on the premium cable channel. Don't fall for the hype. "Who Killed Atlanta's Children?" - with Gregory Hines and James Belushi - seems far more concerned with glorifying a pair of reporters for Spin magazine than it does in communicating the horror of the deaths of 29 African-American children between 1979 and 1982, or actually presenting hard evidence that the man convicted in the murders was not the killer.

It is late, nearly midnight, and actress Nicole Ari Parker has just finished another 14-hour day on location in Toronto, shooting scenes for the coming Showtime series, "Soul Food." As the Baltimore native begins a telephone chat, she is bursting with energy and emphatic declarations. But after a while, fatigue starts to seep ever so softly into her voice. Marathon workdays, rehearsals, magazine shoots, promotional events, quick meals and very little sleep have left Parker understandably exhausted - but grateful.

There was Wendell Pierce last Sunday night, sitting at a bar, pounding down drink after drink and getting kind of emotional as he talked about how messed up things had gotten in his life. Shades of Bunk Moreland, of “The Wire,” to be sure. Only instead of Dominic West as Jimmy McNulty matching him drink for drink, it was Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan sitting next to him. Still, the character, Ronald Keith, a parole officer in Showtime's “Ray Donovan” series, was played just as winningly by Pierce.
