Q&A: Clint Eastwood has seven children

Clint Eastwood's brood

How many children does Clint Eastwood have?

Actor-director Clint Eastwood, who turns 80 on May 31, has seven children with five women.

His first was daughter Kimber in 1964, born to actor Roxanne Tunis.

Next came son Kyle (1968) and daughter Alison (1972) with his wife Maggie, whom he married in 1953 and divorced in 1984.

Then came son Scott (1986) and daughter Kathryn (1988) with flight attendant Jacklyn Reeves.

Daughter Francesca was born in 1993 to actor Frances Fisher.

In 1996, Eastwood married Dina Ruiz, a news anchor in Salinas, Calif., and later that year daughter Morgan was born.

'Southland,' 'Flashpoint' status

My wife and I are wondering what happened to two programs that were on last year, but we miss them this year. I wonder if you can shed any light on the whereabouts of the programs Southland and Flashpoint.

NBC aired Southland for a season, renewed it for a second, then decided to drop it before the second-season episodes even aired. TNT has picked up the first-season repeats as well as the unaired episodes for the second season and is showing them on Tuesday nights at 10 (and repeating three hours later). CBS has ordered 13 more episodes of Flashpoint for telecast later this year, possibly by summer.

A look back at 'Maximum Bob'

Several summer seasons of replacement series ago, we watched Maximum Bob. It starred one of the Bridges brothers. Absolutely hilarious! What happened to that show, and why wasn't it ever picked up as a regular series on prime-time TV?

Based on the novel by Elmore Leonard, the series originally aired on ABC in August and September 1998. Beau Bridges starred as Maximum Bob Gibbs, a tough judge; the cast also included Liz Vassey and Kiersten Warren. The production team included producer-director Barry Sonnenfeld. If the ratings had been good enough, ABC would have ordered more than the seven original episodes. But they weren't, and the show was soon gone.

Mark Russell on politics, piano

What has become of the piano-playing political satirist Mark Russell?

Mark Russell is alive and well and still performing. You can check his schedule at The 77-year-old New Yorker is best known as a political satirist, comedian and syndicated columnist. He has starred on Mark Russell comedy specials on public television for 30 years. His live performances include a standup comedy routine as he accompanies himself on the piano to the tunes of popular songs.
