Who's hot in Hollywood

Wrestler-turned-actor "Stone Cold" Steve Austin stars with Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in the action film The Expendables (out Friday), but when he's not on a movie set, he spends time at his 2,100-acre Broken Skull Ranch 90 miles south of San Antonio. "It's my favorite place in the world to be after all my years of travel," says Austin, 45, who often packs up his truck and makes the two-day trip from his home in Los Angeles with his chocolate Lab, Hershey. "I just go to my ranch, lock the gates and go totally into seclusion."

Angie Harmon plays Jane Rizzoli, a tomboyish Boston detective, in TNT's new Rizzoli & Isles (Mondays, 10 p.m. ET/PT), but it's her husband, Jason Sehorn, 39, a former defensive back for the New York Giants, who has to do some acting these days — when he's playing with their daughters, Finley, 6, Avery, 5, and Emery, 1. "He has no choice," says Harmon, 37. "It's hilarious when you come in and see them all doing the tea party, and he can barely fit on the little chair."

Is Chris O'Donnell of NCIS: Los Angeles the same guy who was a regular on The Unit? I say no, but my husband says yes.

Dawn T. Gorko, Savannah, Ga.

Dawn, you win this one. O'Donnell, 40, who plays Special Agent G. Callen on the CBS drama NCIS: Los Angeles, was not a member of the cast of The Unit, which ended its run on the same network in 2009. Your husband is confusing him with Scott Foley, 38, who had a recurring role last season on the ABC comedy Cougar Town. O'Donnell's NCIS character sports a buzz cut and a bit of facial hair, as did Foley's Unit character, Bob Brown.

Have any of the couples featured on WE tv's Bridezillas not made it to the altar?

Marcia Sessions, Henderson, Nev.

In seven seasons, only one couple, during Season 4, has said "I don't." (And yet eventually they got hitched in Vegas.) Executive producer Danielle Ostroske isn't surprised. "These women are who they are, and their behavior is heightened by the wedding, but the fiancés kind of know what they're getting into," she tells us. "From what I've seen, once they get through the wedding, they're a little bit more calm."

What is Taylor Hicks up to these days?

William Wallace, Milton, Fla.

American Idol's Season 5 winner just completed a stint playing Teen Angel in the touring production of Grease, and he is now on a concert tour that continues into the fall. "The idea for me is, after two years of Broadway work and being in the Broadway community, which I completely love, getting back into the swing of things musically," Hicks, 33, tells us. He has started working on another record, but he also notes that the acting bug doesn't stop at Broadway, saying the Grease experience "has allowed me to open myself up to the TV and film community."

Where did NBC News' Lester Holt begin his career as a reporter?

Ken Phillips, Everett, Wash.

We may see him goof around on Today, but Holt, 51, has some serious hard-news chops, sharpened at TV stations in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Stil , his first true professional love was doing radio in Sacramento and San Francisco. "I had one of those cars with all the antennas on it," he tells us. "It was raw, down-and-dirty reporting" - accidents, fires, shootings - "wonderful preparation for becoming an anchor."
