So long, Cuckoo's Nest. Oregon State Hospital, the mental institution where 1975's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" was filmed, is making way for a new complex. Most of the dilapidated, 125-year-old main building will be torn down and replaced starting in the fall. Although mean Nurse Ratched was pure fiction, the Oregon State Hospital has struggled over the years.
Eric McCormack is joining the cast of Herrick Entertainment's "My One and Only," also starring Renee Zellweger, Kevin Bacon, Chris Noth, Nick Stahl and Logan Lerman. The film, inspired by George Hamilton's early life with his mother and brother, is being directed by Richard Loncraine from a screenplay by Charlie Peters.
