'Risky Business' Actress Dies At 71
Actress Janet Carroll, who played the mother of Tom Cruise's character in the movie "Risky Business," has died. She was 71.

Carroll's son, George Brown, said the actress died Tuesday in New York after a long illness.

Carroll worked steadily since that breakthrough role with Cruise in 1983. Her film credits include "Family Business," with Sean Connery and Matthew Broderick, and "Memories of Me" with Billy Crystal. On television, she appeared in such shows as "Murphy Brown," "Melrose Place" and "Married With Children."

Carroll served as artistic director of the jazz series at the Simi Valley Cultural Center in Southern California for many years and performed on tour with the Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band.

A memorial service will be held Saturday in New York City.

'Royal Pains': Where was Henry Winkler pre-Eddie Lawson?

Henry Winkler joins the cast of USA's "Royal Pains" on Thursday (June 10) in the recurring role of Hank (Mark Feurstein) and Evan's (Paulo Costanzo) scam artist dad, Eddie Lawson.

We're definitely excited to see Henry "the Fonz" Winkler in USA's hit show -- and we're not the only ones. TV son Mark Feurstein recently told Zap2it's Korbi TV, "I love having the Fonz as my dad.... I worshipped the Fonz growing up."

Even after over a quarter century has passed since Winkler played the role of Arthur Fonzarelli, many (like his "Royal Pains" co-star) still know him as "the Fonz." Perhaps that's because most folks don't know what exactly he's been up to since his iconic role on "Happy Days." So ... we thought we'd take a closer look into Winkler's post-"Happy Days" (1974 - 1984), pre-"Royal Pains" (2010) days to answer the burning question: where in the world was Winkler for the past 26 years?

Comedian Alan King Dies at 76

Comedian Alan King, whose longevity made him a staple of the comedy scene since the 50s, died Sunday in New York of lung cancer; he was 76. The host of the legendary New York Friars Club's celebrity roasts, King first came to prominence in the 50s, when he took his act from nightclubs to television, appearing first on The Ed Sullivan Show, where his rantings about suburbia struck a chord with growing TV audiences. King then became the opening act for numerous musical legends, and segued into innumerable appearances in TV and film, mainly in supporting roles. An accomplished character actor, King appeared most notably in Billy Crystal's Memories of Me and Just Tell Me What You Want, as well as Casino, The Bonfire of the Vanities, Enemies: A Love Story, The Anderson Tapes and Bye Bye Braverman, among other films. In addition to acting and comedy, King also wrote three books and produced several plays and movies. He is survived by his wife, Jeannette, and three children. --Prepared by IMDb staff
