'Lawrence of Arabia' Star Peter O'Toole Dead at 81
Peter O'Toole, the charismatic actor who achieved instant stardom as Lawrence of Arabia and was nominated eight times for an Academy Award, has died. He was 81.
O'Toole's agent Steve Kenis says the actor died Saturday at a hospital following a long illness.
O'Toole began his acting career as one of the most exciting young talents on the British stage. His 1955 "Hamlet," at the Bristol Old Vic, was critically acclaimed.
He got his first Oscar nomination for 1962's "Lawrence of Arabia," his last for "Venus" in 2006. With that he set the record for most nominations without ever winning, though he had accepted an honorary Oscar in 2003.
A reformed -- but unrepentant -- hell-raiser, O'Toole long suffered from ill health. Kenis announced the death in an email Sunday.

"DOWNTON ABBEY" - ALLEN LEECH
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Allen Leech wants fans to be excited about "Downton Abbey" without pestering him for details that ruin everything. Leech, who plays Tom Branson, says it's like pulling a loose thread: "People just want to know more and more and more and more." He believes it would be so much easier if "Downton Abbey" ran at the same time in both the U.K. and the U.S. He says that way he wouldn't have to worry about spoilers. "Downton Abbey" premieres on PBS in January. The premiere date in the U.K. has not been announced.
Allen Leech says it would be so much easier if British fans didn't blow the plot of "Downton Abbey" to fans in the United States.

MICHAEL MOORE'S DIVORCE
BELLAIRE, Mich. (AP) -- They worked together on many of films. But in the end Michael Moore and Kathleen Glynn couldn't make their marriage work any longer. The filmmaker has gotten a final decree of divorce from his wife of two decades. The consent judgment of divorce was entered -- with the case closing on Tuesday. In his filing for divorce last year, Moore said his relationship with Glynn had broken down and there was "no reasonable likelihood" that the marriage could be saved. The couple married in 1991. Glynn served as producer or executive producer on many of Moore's documentaries, including "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko" and "Capitalism: A Love Story."
ERIC STONESTREET-"MODERN FAMILY" HELPING TO CHANGE ATTITUDES
NEW YORK (AP) -- Eric Stonestreet says "Modern Family" is helping to change attitudes toward gays. He plays Cam on the ABC sitcom and married his partner Mitch in the season finale. Stonestreet says people come up to him to say the show has made it easier for them to come out to their families. He says parents tell him Mitch and Cam help them to understand their gay children. The two-time Emmy winner says when gay marriage became legal in California, it made sense to have his character tie the knot. When Modern Family returns in the fall, Stonestreet says Mitch and Cam will just be a regular married couple.
Eric Stonestreet says his gay relationship on "Modern Family" is something that even non-gays can understand.
