JOHN McTIERNAN: "Die Hard" director John McTiernan will serve a one-year federal prison sentence for making false statements to the FBI, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"The Hunt for Red October" filmmaker was sentenced in late 2010 to one year in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $100,000 after pleading guilty to making false statements to federal investigators working on an illegal wiretapping case involving private detective Anthony Pellicano.

McTiernan has since unsuccessfully filed for an appeal, attempted to withdraw his plea and tried to have evidence against him tossed out.

The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday McTiernan is expected to begin serving his sentence within a few weeks or months. He will be placed on probation for three years after his release.

McTiernan pleaded guilty after confronted with a recording showing he hired Pellicano to wiretap "Rollerball" producer Charles Roven.


VICTOR GARBER: Canadian actor Victor Garber has confirmed he is gay and shares a home in New York with his longtime partner, artist and model Rainer Andreesen.

TVGuide.com reported Tuesday Garber was candid about his relationship when asked about his sexuality by blogger Greg Hernandez.

"I don't really talk about it, but everybody knows," Garber said, adding Andreesen is "going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards" this month in Los Angeles where his new show "Deception" is taped.

TVGuide.com said Garber previously confirmed his relationship to the Canadian magazine Forever Young Information last April, but the media didn't pick up on it.

"My companion Rainer Andreesen and I have been together almost 13 years in Greenwich Village. We both love New York," Garber told the publication.

Garber's credits include the films "Argo" and "Titanic," as well as the TV series "Alias."


'THE KILLING:' The Seattle-set crime drama "The Killing" is to return to AMC for a third season, the cable network and Fox Television Studios announced.

Veena Sud will be back as executive producer, writer and showrunner, while Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will reprise their roles as Linden and Holder.

Season 3 will focus on a new case, which will be resolved during the course of 12 episodes.

Production on the fresh run of episodes is to begin Feb. 25 in Vancouver.

"'The Killing' from Day 1 has been a truly original take on the crime drama. Veena Sud and the rest of the talented creative team are hard at work shaping the lives of Linden and Holder, portrayed by the terrific Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman," Charlie Collier, AMC's president, said in a statement. "We're so pleased to welcome back 'The Killing' for another season."

"We have always believed in 'The Killing' and remain extremely proud of it, which is why we all worked so hard to find a scenario that could give it new life," Fox TV Studios President David Madden said.

"I couldn't be happier to know that I will be returning to work with AMC, FTVS and Mireille and Joel on what is and has always been a passion project for me. To the fans that have supported the series, thank you for doing so. My team and I will work hard to deliver the best story that we can for Season 3," said Sud.

"A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective," a preview of Season 3 said. "But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind."


U.S. television actor Charlie Sheen has announced his 28-year-old daughter, Cassandra Estevez, is pregnant with her first child.

"You are going to be, in the next several months ... fill in the blanks," David Letterman teased Sheen on Monday's edition of "Late Show."

"Grandfather," Sheen said, describing the news as "fabulous" but admitting he is still trying to adjust to his new title.

"I guess some of you have heard... Charlie Sheen is going to be a Grampa... yes GRAMPA! His beautiful daughter Cassandra is gonna be a mama," TVGuide.com said Sheen's ex-wife, actress Denise Richards, said via Twitter.

Sheen, 47, is best known for his work on the sitcoms "Anger Management," "Two and a Half Men" and "Spin City," as well as the films "Lucas," "Platoon" and "Hot Shots."
