TV bosses behind Tim Roth's crime drama "Lie to Me" are facing a lawsuit over allegations the idea was copied from a pilot episode pitched to Fox network executives back in 2007. The British actor stars as a body language expert who helps criminal investigations by detecting lies in the program, which has run for three seasons since its debut in 2009.

Executives at John Gertz Productions (JGP) claim to have acquired the rights to Roderick Anscombe's 2005 novel "The Interview Room", about a psychiatrist who is an expert in detecting untruths, and turned it into a screenplay for a show called "Lie to Lie" which was offered to Fox in 2007.

James Franco Made Sex Tape When He Was Teen

January 26, 2011 02:55:27 GMT

James Franco gained a newfound respect for professional porn stars after he tried and failed to make his own saucy sex tape at the age of 19. The "Spider-Man" star admits he filmed his raunchy bedroom antics as a teenager but was less than impressed when he watched back the footage.

Franco, who has dated actress Ahna O'Reilly since 2006, now admits he commends adult movie stars for managing to look attractive and "really selling" sex. Speaking at Newsweek magazine's Oscar roundtable discussion, Franco says, "I think (as) anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn't always look best. I remember when I was 19 doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, 'Oh, that looks horrible'."
