Local Venice, California resident and business owner, Golden Globe winning actor, Robert Downey Jr. came out in support of the inaugural lighting of the Venice sign on Friday night. He was joined by the Venice Chamber of Commerce , City of Los Angeles Mike Bonin, and Councilmember Bill Rosendahl.

The historic Venice Sign has been refurbished and is a landmark in the beach community. The traditional white lights were swapped out for holiday red & green. Councilmember Bill Rosendahl and Robert Downey Jr. flipped the switch together as the crowd counted down amidst a sea of cheers to kick off the Holiday Season.

Little Fockers in Theaters This Christmas

Universal Pictures third enstallment in the hilarious Focker film series, Little Fockers, hits theaters December 22nd just in time for some Holiday cheer & laughter. The film continues with the original cast of ROBERT DENIRO, BEN STILLER, OWEN WILSON, BLYTHE DANNER and TERI POLO with the addition of some fun new faces with JESSICA ALBA, LAURA DERN and of course the return of Academy Award® winners DUSTIN HOFFMAN and BARBRA STREISAND as Bernie & Roz Focker.

The test of wills between Jack Byrnes (De Niro) and Gaylord “Greg” Focker, (Stiller) escalates to new comedic heights in this latest installment.

It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack.

When Greg and Pam’s entire clan – including Pam’s forever lovelorn ex-boyfriend, Kevin (Wilson) gathers for the twins birthday party, Greg must prove to the always skeptical, ever watching Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. With all the comedic misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next “Godfocker”…or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

If you ‘like’ Little Fockers on Facebook, you can enter to win a $1500 American Airlines gift card. Just fill in your details and look for the confirmation of your entry. Limit one entry per person now through January 5, 2011.

This sure fire hit is rated PG-13 and will be a hilarious outing for the teens & adults in your family this Holiday season.

Billy Idol To Play KLOS Christmas Show

Billy Idol

There may still be a handful of tickets left for these upcoming Billy Idol shows across California! Why not treat someone to an early holiday gift or great night out?

Tickets are on sale now for all shows via Ticketmaster/Live Nation.

Singer Billy Idol will headline Mark & Brian’s annual Christmas Show for classic rock station KLOS 95.5 on December 16, 2010 at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

The KLOS pre-sale begins on Thursday, November 4th with the public on sale beginning on Saturday, November 6th via Ticketmaster. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center.

Mark & Brian will open the show with their all-star band including Paul Rodgers, Steve Lukather, Peter Frampton, John Waite, Michael Anthony and Jason Bonham. Comedian Ron White will get the evening started. Tune in to Mark & Brian on KLOS 95.5 every morning as they are sure to have an interview with Billy Idol before the big Christmas show and likely to give away some great concert tickets to the event.

Billy Idol will close out 2010 with a handful of Holiday shows in mid December around California including:

  • Wed 12/15 San Diego, CA: House of Blues 
  • Thurs 12/16 Los Angeles, CA : Nokia Theater
  • Sat 12/18 Ventura, CA: Ventura Theater
  • Mon 12/20 San Francisco, CA: Fillmore
  • Tues 12/21 San Francisco, CA: Fillmore

Tickets are on sale now for all shows via Ticketmaster/Live Nation.

Billy Idol also has his self-penned memoir, Dancing With Myself, in the works which is due out from Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster in late 2011 or early 2012. Idol has never shied away from the truth of his rock & roll lifestyle so this is likely to be a great tell all unlike many of the glossed over auto-biographies we tend to see.

Idol also debuted several new tracks during his summer 2010 tour including one called Love Is Strange. Expect a new album & tour by the end of next year as well.
