It's the latest craze in the wave of extreme sports that's guaranteed to be a smash! Smash Ball is an alternative underground sport that will be featured in it's own show this spring on TNN network called "USU Smash Zone." If you think you have what it takes to be part of the extreme team, tryouts will be held this Monday and Tuesday in Los Angeles.


Compassionate stars came out in Hollywood last night to raise money to benefit Cambodian orphans. Their plight is captured in the new HBO/Cinemax documentary "My Khmer Heart." Danny Glover says, “I was so moved by the documentary, I wanted to do anything I could.”

Matt Damon says, “I called up and said, ‘How the hell can I help?’”

Matt Damon also helped out his softball buddy Sean Hayes by making a cameo on the February 7th episode of “Will & Grace.” Matt explains, “He and I are competing for a spot in a gay man's chorus and it just sort of takes off from there."


Billionaire media mogul turned New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg speaks candidly to “20/20's” Barbara Walters tonight on why one of the wealthiest men in the world sought public office. He says, “Because you get a chance to change the world. You get a chance to make a difference.”

Bloomberg may change the world but he won't be changing his address. He declined living in the mayor's Gracie Mansion. His own townhouse is far more luxurious.


A sassy Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor gives no objection tonight to “Dateline NBC's” Katie Couric's questions about her courtship with husband John O'Connor and a little known fact about chief justice William Renquist. Sandra says, “Well we went to a few movies and one thing or another.”
