Ashley Olsen takes a what?

Drama déjà vu
Those all-too-famous Olsen twins started acting before they were out of diapers. But even so, Ashley Olsen feels there is still much to learn.

According to the New York Post, the 18-year-old college freshman has signed up for acting classes. For $295 a month, she's being taught spontaneity and improvisation two days a week at New York's prestigious William Esper Studio.
Here's a link as I could not find the original link. I've done some improv in the past.

Speaking of sitcoms, the NY Post reports that General Wes Clark is writing a sitcom.
FORMER Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark is planning a new chapter of his career: He’s working on a sitcom.
Clark, a former U.S. Army general who lost in the Democratic primaries, is writing a television show based on his experiences.

It’s about a retired general who is reintegrating to civilian life after many years in the army.

"It’s going to be about what it’s like to be back in the real world," said a source.

Characters in the sitcom are going to be based on Clark’s real-life friends and acquaintances.

Clark, who is also mulling over a run for governor of Arkansas, has met with two writers and a producer who have traveled to his home in Little Rock to see him.

"They’re trying to keep it very hushhush," said a friend.

His son, Wesley Clark Jr., a Los Angeles screenwriter, is also involved with the venture as a consultant of sorts.

The Clark team aims to have the sitcom ready to pitch to major networks next year.
