Fall Preview: Let the Games Begin

ShareThis

This fall, the torch will be passed to a new generation of White House occupants, and Olympians, and sitcoms, and reality shows, and rock-and-rollers, and novelists, and artists, and designers, etc., etc. Except that, in fact, you may recognize a few of them. Michael Richards (don't call him Kramer) is as irrepressible as a private investigator on his new show as he was on -- don't say it. Michael Johnson didn't qualify to repeat his stunning double gold of four years ago, but he'll be in Sydney with his running shoes, trying to win one more medal in the 400-meter race. Gore Vidal continues his voluminous retelling of American history in a new book, with a part written for himself. Bette Midler has an eponymous TV show; as does John Goodman; as does -- wethinks we spot a trend -- Geena Davis. Proven talent, in other words, building future successes on the past. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
