We reported in March about our "Dynasty" diva Dominique Devereaux, aka Diahann Carroll, releasing a new autobiography in October, "The Legs Are the Last to Go: Aging, Acting, Marrying, Mothering, and Other Things I Learned Along the Way." Carroll has released information about the first few stops of her book-signing tour:

Did you know Carroll has received an Emmy nomination for guest actress in a drama series for her role as Jane Burke on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy." The Emmy ceremony will be on September 21 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and broadcast on ABC.
Also, Carroll and Michael Feinstein (whom you might recall on our beloved "Santa Barbara") will perform together with his 17-piece band September 12-25, in London, in Feinstein's new show celebrating the work of Frank Sinatra. Keep an eye on Carroll's official site for show locations.
And while we're talkin' "Dynasty," catch our boy Jack Coleman, the second Steven Carrington, in his current role as Noah Bennet on NBC's smashing "Heroes," which premieres its third season on September 22.
Spotted: Theodore Bikel
There was just the faint hint of Warnick-ness about him, that very young Theodore Bikel, decades before he played the Moldavian defense minister involved in the revolution in our beloved "Dynasty." And we must have known, as he held Krystle Carrington captive in 1985, that his characters have quite the nasty streak. And so he was, in this vintage episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" entitled "The Hands of Mr. Ottermole." In it, he played a member of Scotland Yard in 1919 London, on the trail with his comrades of a cold-blooded killer. Bikel, known for many, many roles over the years, as early as 1949 and as late as just last year, was smooth-shaven, pensive and oh-so blond and close-cut in this classic piece.
