Too hot to handle
Hot news for "Burn Notice" fans: Jeffrey Donovan, who plays the CIA operative Michael Westen, says one of the main characters dies in the show's current season.
As for who is killed off - Donovan isn't saying.
Last season ended with Donovan's character devastated as he watched girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) turn herself in to authorities. He and his team had been forced to commit crimes on increasingly dangerous missions because Fiona was being blackmailed by the man who had originally "burned" Michael out of the CIA.
"I think season six will be the darkest year ever for Michael," says the actor of his usually unflappable character. "You'll actually see him break down for once. You'll see the raw emotion come out of him because he doesn't know how to deal with a 4-inch pane of glass between him and what he wants."
Beach baggo tournament
Fans of beach baggo should head to Atlantic City this afternoon for a tournament on the beach between Missouri and Arkansas avenues. Cash prizes are available for the first through fifth place teams. Registration is $60 per two-person team. A $90 party package includes registration and two unlimited beer wristbands.The event begins at noon.
A quarter of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Atlantic County.
Beach baggo is played like horseshoes, with players attempting to toss bean bags into an opening in a target. Additional tournaments are planned this summer in Wildwood and Avalon.
