Everything about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is longer than it needs to be. Its title, for one thing. Its duration - two hours and 40 minutes! - for another. But mostly its excruciatingly deliberate pace makes you wonder if Andrew Dominik's film, as spare as it is self-important, intentionally unfolds in narrative slow-mo. On the plus side, Brad Pitt's turn as the fastest (and most paranoid) gun in the West and that of Casey Affleck, as James' starstruck fan and killer, are sharp.

IN HOLLYWOOD, Sandra Bullock has long been considered a shrewd businesswoman, well-suited to managing her career and her fortune. It should therefore come as no surprise that she and Jesse James have a prenup. RadarOnline.com says it specifically states that he gets no money in a divorce if he cheats during their marriage. Since Jesse reportedly admitted to Sandra to cheating with seven women and went to sex-addiction rehab to deal with his philandering, it should not take a team of lawyers to bust him. But does she get a refund?

Director Brenna Geffers showed a bit of boldness when casting only women in EgoPo Classic Theatre's The Assassination of Jesse James . Running into traffic is also bold, though not without consequence. Geffers' script consists of poems, songs, text found in dime novels, and newspaper accounts about the legendary outlaw. The play, itself a collage of direct-address narrative, dramatization and song, chronicles James' transition from guerrilla fighter slaughtering Union forces to stagecoach-robbing bandit.

WHEN NEWS BEGAN to flow like sewage that Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James, was a dog, the first response from so many people (at least on Facebook) was, "I hope it's not true" or "I thought he was different. " Well, it is and he's not. James yesterday said he was sorry for the pain and embarrassment he's caused Sandra and his three children from previous relationships. He told People magazine in a statement yesterday that he exhibited "poor judgment" and "I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. " Huh?

The story of Jesse James is an evergreen, retrimmed for every generation. The Confederate bushwhacker-turned-bank-robber-turned-Robin Hood has been framed as antihero (Jesse James, starring Tyrone Power), brave soldier (Audie Murphy in Kansas Raiders), rebel and rivalrous sibling (James Keach in The Long Riders), and folk hero and antigovernment activist (Robert Duvall in The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid). In his latest reincarnation, with Colin Farrell as the studly sharpshooter in American Outlaws, juicy Jesse is a male centerfold, mama's boy and Confederate idealist coerced into bank robbery by a conspiracy of Northern real estate speculators, railroad barons, and hired guns.

THE WORLD is in crisis. Greece is in a financial meltdown. Jamaica is under military rule. Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock. The U.S. is overspending. We owe China trillions. North Korea sank a South Korean warship. North Korea will be isolated and asking China for help. China is out for itself, and I don't know why the U.S. got involved with them. Secret plans implemented by Gen. Petraeus say that special-operations troops can be sent to the Middle East, Central Asia and the Horn of Africa, involving Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and other countries that are against us. These documents should have remained secret.

There was a moment last month, after the premiere of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford at the Toronto International Film Festival, when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looked like they were going to be swallowed by the crowd. Literally. Their getaway limo was ringed by squawking, bawling fans, faces pressed to the car window, flashbulbs flaring, cell-phone cameras going crazy, the streets jammed, traffic at a standstill. It was like something out of, well, a movie.

We're going to get a look at "the dirty little coward" who shot Jesse James in NBC's Sunday night movie (Channel 3 at 9), "The Last Days of Frank and Jesse James. " But do we really need another film about the notorious outlaws of the 1800s? Two famed country stars, Kris Kristofferson and Johnny Cash, co-star as Jesse and Frank, respectively. What's amusing about this casting is that both actors have poker faces - you can't tell what either one is feeling or thinking. The story begins with a young kid running out of a house shouting, "I just killed Jesse James!"

Penn State coach James Franklin says his program does its best to provide the information his players need while trying to make the decision on whether to leave college with football eligibility remaining to enter the NFL draft. But he also has a "general rule": "You should never come out early unless you're going to be a first-round draft choice," he said. The Nittany Lions had three players come out early, and two of them - offensive tackle Donovan Smith and tight end Jesse James - were taken, Smith in the second round by Tampa Bay, James in the fifth round by Pittsburgh.

Two Penn State players - safety Adrian Amos and tight end Jesse James - were selected Saturday on the final day of the NFL draft, but three more Nittany Lions reached free-agent agreements after the draft ended. The 6-foot, 1/2-inch, 218-pound Amos was taken in the fifth round by the Chicago Bears with the 142d overall selection. The 6-7, 261-pound James, of Glassport, Pa., about 12 miles from Pittsburgh, went later in the same round (No. 160) to the Steelers. In all, three Nittany Lions were chosen.

STATE COLLEGE - Sometimes it's not even fair. Penn State tight end Jesse James, who towers at 6-7, 254 pounds, is a load to cover and tackle. That's especially the case in the red zone, and he showed it Saturday afternoon against Maryland. James, a junior, had his most productive game, dating back to early September, and with the Nittany Lions playing Indiana - a team that concedes plenty of opportunities to tight ends - James could have a field day in Bloomington on Saturday.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The perception is that Penn State's tight ends have taken a step back in their offensive roles under James Franklin, but the numbers say different. Jesse James, Kyle Carter and true freshman Mike Gesicki have combined for 18 receptions in the Nittany Lions' first three games, with James (10 catches) accounting for both touchdowns from the position. Previous Penn State coach Bill O'Brien was known for his imagination in utilizing his tight ends, who caught 83 passes in his first season, 2012.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - With its running game still mired in quicksand and Christian Hackenberg still finding that heroic throws sometimes lead to interceptions, Penn State continued Saturday to discover the ability to dial up a big play whenever it needed one. Hackenberg threw a pair of picks, giving him four in two games, but he shook them off to pass for 319 yards and three touchdowns, as the Nittany Lions got their offense untracked late and...

MICHELLE "BOMBSHELL" McGEE , the tattooed trollop who slept with Sandra Bullock 's then-husband, Jesse James , will pillow-fight Delaware County tattoo model Rita Rampage on Friday at the Deck (101 Taylor) in Essington. The event is the first of the new Pillow Fighting League and features three other bouts. Who could possibly be behind such a ridiculous event? You guessed it . . . Damon Feldman . Feldman is not legally allowed to promote boxing events in Pennsylvania after being convicted of promoting fights without a license, but pillow fighting is not yet regulated by the state.

IF THE ORIGINAL Black Sabbath can reunite for a new album, why not Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth ? Billboard.com reports that Van Halen (the band) will sign with Interscope Records and release its first album with Roth since 1984. Think of it as a supplement to social security. The Hollywood Reporter had originally reported that the band was going to join Columbia Records, but a source said that Interscope chairman "heard the band was available and wanted to work with them.
