No more late nights for Leno Jay Leno says he doesn’t plan to tackle another late-night show after leaving NBC’s “Tonight” next month.
In an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday, Leno said he can’t re-create what he had as “Tonight” host with another show.
Leno said his 22-year run was “fantastic.”
The comedian steps down as “Tonight” host on Feb. 6. Billy Crystal will join Leno for his farewell broadcast in Burbank.
Dempsey will stay in fast lane
Patrick Dempsey’s acting and racing careers will be intermingled for the foreseeable future.
Dempsey, a driver/owner racing in the Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance event this weekend, confirmed Saturday night that he has signed a two-year contract extension to continue with the popular television series “Grey’s Anatomy.” The show has not officially been picked up beyond its 10th season, but Dempsey’s deal provides a strong indication that it will be back.
Dempsey also plans to run a full season in the United SportsCar Championship, racing in the fourth-tier GTD class.
Dempsey, 48, said the acting gig has been a huge help in allowing him to continue his other full-time job.
Man arrested at Gomez’s house
Los Angeles police have arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of trespassing at the home of singer-actress Selena Gomez.
Officer Rosario Herrera said a family member called 911 Saturday morning after seeing an intruder on the property in the San Fernando Valley’s Tarzana area.
She said Juan Daniel Garcia, of El Mirage, Ariz., was booked on suspicion of trespassing. Police don’t know if he has a lawyer yet.
Herrera said it’s unclear if Gomez was home at the time.
An email seeking comment from her publicists was not immediately returned.
Gomez and her family have a three-year restraining order against a man accused of threatening to kill her and traveling from Illinois to meet her. A judge granted it in January 2011.
