More show prep:

- The Polar Express comes out tomorrow. First computer animated film done entirely with motion capture. This is the process where people where skin-tight outfits with little dots all over them so their every movement is traced into the comptuer, and used to make animation. Thanks to this, Tom Hanks plays 5 different characters in the film.

- Just in time for Christmas, the Geekman action figure. Geekman comes with removable glasses, PDA, coffee mug, watch, and laptop. It's been very popular, and the company is already working on a "Geekgirl" figure.

- International soccer star David Beckham is making his acting debut. Beckham will be staring in a trilogy of movies called Goal!, about an American who joins a British soccer team. Beckham will play himself. The trilogy will be directed by Danny Cannon, who did Judge Dredd, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and about a zillion episodes of CSI
