90210 will be a destination again when Fox brings together the stars of the popular '90s teen drama series. "Beverly Hills, 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion," is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. EDT May 11. Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth and Gabrielle Carteris are among the actors who will discuss their memories of the show that turned them into teen idols. But Tori Spelling, the daughter of series executive producer Aaron Spelling, won't be taking part because she's busy working on other projects, the network said Wednesday. Brian Austin Green won't make it because he's shooting a film in Toronto, and Ian Ziering will also be absent. "90210" is Fox's longest-running drama series, premiering in October 1990 and ending in May 2000. It followed the scandals, romances and heartbreaks of twins Brandon and Brenda Walsh and their wealthy friends at Beverly Hills High School, which they graduated from in 1993.
Stars of the 1988 film "Bull Durham," recently snubbed by baseball's Hall of Fame, will talk about baseball, movies and politics when "On the Record With Bob Costas" begins its third season on HBO next month. Tim Robbins and his longtime companion, Susan Sarandon, will be among the guests joining Costas on May 2. They'll revisit the classic baseball film about life in the minor leagues in North Carolina. The roundtable session will include actor Robert Wuhl and writer-director Ron Shelton. Robbins, 44, and Sarandon, 56, had been invited to appear at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., this weekend to commemorate the movie's 15th anniversary. But Hall of Fame President Dale Petroskey withdrew the invitation because of the couple's anti-war views. Petroskey has said he should have called the actors before canceling the "Bull Durham" celebration. But he's made no mention of whether he still believes his decision to scrap the event was right. Robbins has said he appreciated the "non-apology apology."
Barry Manilow will be presented with the Society of Singers' 12th annual ELLA Award Monday in Beverly Hills, Calif. The ELLA Award, named after its first recipient, Ella Fitzgerald, goes to singers whose contributions to the music world are equaled by their dedication to humanitarian causes and community support. "We are thrilled to honor Barry Manilow for his accomplishments as a performer, composer, arranger, producer and musician," said Society of Singers President Jerry F. Sharell. "He has also been actively involved with charities and humanitarian efforts around the world," Sharell said Tuesday. "There is no better person who typifies what the ELLA Award stands for than Barry Manilow." Michael Feinstein, Brian McKnight and Dave Koz are among those scheduled to perform Manilow's songs. The 56-year-old singer will do a special solo set. Previous recipients include Julie Andrews, Tony Bennett, Lena Horne, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney and Peggy Lee.
John Cusack leads the cast of the film "Identity," playing a limo driver who ends up at the wrong hotel on the wrong night of the week. But he was in the right place, at the right time on Wednesday night for the star-studded premiere of the dark thriller. However, he showed up solo despite rumors he's been chauffeuring Meg Ryan around town lately. Also on the red carpet were co-stars Amanda Peet and Ray Liotta. The film focuses on a handful of strangers that seek refuge from a savage rainstorm at a roadside motel. One by one, each motel guest meets their maker. Sound familiar? All of the actors agreed that without director James Mangold ("Girl Interrupted", "Kate and Leopold") at the helm, the movie wouldn't have its shocking, Hitchcockian edge. The ensemble cast spent the entire shoot on stage 27 of Sony Pictures, drenched in faux rain. The motel exterior is a real location set out in the California desert, but the interiors were all built on a soundstage. "Identity" hits theatres on Friday, April 25th.

Singer Vince Gill is this year's winner of the PGA of America's Distinguished Service Award. The award is given to those who show leadership and humanitarian qualities, along with enthusiasm for golf. Gill becomes the second entertainer to win the award, joining Bob Hope. The 46-year-old country singer will be honored Aug. 13 at The Eastman Theatre in Rochester, N.Y. "I don't see myself as an ambassador for the game of golf," Gill said Tuesday. "I'm someone who loves it." Gill founded the Vinny Pro-Celebrity Golf Invitational in 1993, which has generated nearly $3 million for junior golf in Tennessee. His support of the Tennessee Golf Foundation has led to 1,300 juniors playing in 160 events on the Vince Gill Tennessee PGA Junior Tour.
