Hollywood Hits the Red Carpet

The Bourne Legacy Premiere: The world premiere of Universal's The Bourne Legacy, held at New York's Ziegfeld Theatre, left the audience clamoring for more Bourne. Will they get a possible Jeremy Renner-Matt Damon mash-up down the road? "We tried to leave ourselves in a place where a lot of things were possible," said writer-director Tony Gilroy. After the premiere, revelers headed to the Four Seasons restaurant, where producer Frank Marshall and star Rachel Weisz held court. After more than a decade of Bourne, Marshall was still trying to explain where Legacy fits. "People ask me: 'Is it a sequel? Is it a prequel?' " he said. "It stands on its own." -- Tatiana Siegel

TCA Summer Press Tour: The television networks again descended upon Los Angeles to trot out their new fall wares as part of the Television Critics Association's semiannual press tour at the Beverly Hilton. Among the two-week confab's biggest media draws: an underdressed Charlie Sheen promoting his multicamera FX comedy Anger Management; the reporter-mobbed showrunner pair of Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd (ABC's Modern Family), caught during their cast's much-publicized contract renegotiations; a brilliantly comedic TCA Awards emcee Bryan Cranston (better known, of course, for his intensely dark performance on AMC's Breaking Bad); and the appearance of a certain former vice presidential candidate who joined her husband, a contestant on NBC's upcoming reality series Stars Earn Stripes, at the network's July 24 bash. "We're on a mission to find Sarah Palin," confessed The New Normal's Andrew Rannells as he and co-star Georgia King raced around the party hoping to catch a glimpse. -- Lacey Rose
