Ford Gives Grant to Public; Jackson Sets Record

MofoThe Public Theater has received a $2 million grant from the Ford Foundation. The award is to be used to finish the theater's $40 million renovation. Also, the honoring of Broadway and Off-Broadway understudies and standbys called "At This Performance" will be on Oct. 30. Read the stories at Playbill.

• "South Park" mocked Broadway on Wednesday night. It left The New York Times "speechless,"  despite the fact that it was able to report about the episode.

• Samuel L. Jackson is highest-grossing actor of all time, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. His films have grossed more than $7.4 billion. Was there any doubt? The name on his wallet says it all. If you don't catch that reference, watch "Pulp Fiction." Check it out at The Hollywood Reporter.

• Warner Bros. will no longer allow Blockbuster to distribute its new DVD releases, reported. And things were going so well for Blockbuster.

• NBC plans to buy a ton of new scripts for this development season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, most major networks spend a little more $30 million for the upcoming season, but NBC's going toward $40 million, trying beat its competitors. Spending more money in an uncertain economy? That's the ticket!
