It's rare, in the course of interviewing movie stars about their new film, that one of the actors leans over and smacks another in the head, then rips a soggy bagel out of his mouth. It's simply not done in most proper social settings, even among pampered film actors. But then, most movie stars aren't Jacob and Adam Worton, the blond, blue- eyed, 19-month-old identical twins who make their acting debuts - actually, their crawling, grinning and drooling debuts - in the new comedy Baby's Day Out. "WWAAAAAHHH!

With a doubleheader sweep of visiting Minnesota, the New York Yankees edged closer to clinching their seventh straight AL East title. Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez rallied the Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the AL Central champions in the opener, a possible playoff preview matching New York's Mike Mussina and Minnesota's Johan Santana. Jon Lieber then won his 100th career game and fifth consecutive decision in the nightcap, with New York beating the Twins, 5-4, behind Hideki Matsui's second homer of the day and 30th of the season, a three-run drive in the first.

The Minnesota Twins turned five doubleplays in a game for the first time in 11 years and Scott Baker pitched six strong innings as the visiting Twins beat Cleveland yesterday, 6-1, to move to within one game of the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. "Guys made good plays behind me all day," Baker said. "It gives you a lot of confidence knowing guys will make the plays. " The Twins won for the eighth time in 10 games, and are 41-21 since falling 12 games behind the Tigers on July 13. Jason Tyner had three hits and Torii Hunter and Phil Nevin each drove in two runs for the Twins.

The Minnesota Twins' 6-1 victory over visiting Baltimore yesterday was overshadowed by news of a fistfight last week between Twins leftfielder Dan Gladden and second baseman Steve Lombardozzi. The altercation apparently took place at Gladden's home last Thursday, an off day. Lombardozzi arrived for Friday's game against Baltimore with a black eye and scratches down the swollen left side of his face. Gladden suffered a cracked bone in his right ring finger, and his forehead still shows signs of the battle.

The shooting deaths of a brother and sister - 25-year-old twins who relatives say did everything together - have puzzled police and relatives. Dennis Floyd and Denise Floyd-Pressberry were each shot once in the head yesterday morning while sitting in a car in the parking lot of a West Philadelphia public housing project. Police say they have no suspects, and they were trying to determine why the twins drove to the West Park Plaza project at 44th and Market streets, where they were killed.

Twin brothers accused of causing a SEPTA trolley wreck that injured 57 people in Haverford Township in December were found delinquent yesterday in Delaware County Court. The verdict had the same effect as a conviction, had they been tried as adults, on 57 counts of aggravated assault and one each of causing a catastrophe and conspiracy, according to County Common Pleas Judge John V. Diggins. Diggins found the 15-year-old twins, residents of Upper Darby, delinquent after a four-day hearing that was closed to the public.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Scwarzenegger are twins. Get it? You see, Schwarzenegger is really huge and DeVito is really tiny, and they're supposed to be twins, who usually look at least a little like each other. Funny, huh? Did you follow that? Schwarzenegger and DeVito? Well, yes, "Twins" is a one-joke movie. Luckily, it's not a bad joke. And luckily, the film doesn't hit you over the head with it - representing a surprising restraint for something directed by Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters," "Stripes")

Twin Guatemalan girls who spent the first year of life joined at the top of the head have opened their eyes and shown other promising movement nearly three days after being surgically separated, doctors said yesterday. Maria de Jesus Quiej-Alvarez and her twin Maria Teresa remain in critical condition on respirators at Mattel Children's Hospital at the University of California at Los Angeles. Earlier yesterday, UCLA said just one twin, Maria de Jesus, had briefly fluttered her eyes after being taken off drugs that prevented the twins from injuring their brains by coughing or moving in the very early stages of recovery.

Hours after free-agent pitcher Jack Morris and the Twins were unable to agree on proposals ranging from a two-year, $3.9 million contract to a four- year, $6.8 million deal, Phillies president Bill Giles said last night that Morris could forget about playing in Veterans Stadium if he came to Philadelphia armed with those figures. "To be very candid about it, if he has those numbers in mind, he may as well not come to Philadelphia," said Giles, whose team is one of four for which Morris said he would be interested in playing.

The Minnesota Twins moved a step closer to North Carolina when baseball appointed a five-man committee yesterday to guide the team through the sport's relocation rules. "Carl Pohlad has tried everything to stay in Minnesota," acting commissioner Bud Selig said. "It's very frustrating. " The Minnesota Legislature last week defeated a proposal to finance a new ballpark, and Pohlad has an agreement with North Carolina businessman Don Beaver to negotiate a sale unless stadium financing is approved by Nov. 30. If he buys the Twins, Beaver has said would apply to move the team to North Carolina following the 1998 season.

Kim Lewullis and Nikki Watts have a lot of things in common. They live on the same block in the same style house in Collegeville. They both teach at the YMCA. They both have three children. This makes sense because they were born minutes apart. They're twins. They do one more thing together, too: They run. On Monday, they'll run their second Boston Marathon. "We try to do all of our long runs together," said Lewullis, 40, who is older by two minutes. "Knowing that we're in this together provides strength and just peace of mind.

Nick and Rob DePersia have been playing basketball together for their whole lives. They have decided to continue in college. The DePersia twins, four-year varsity players for Haddonfield High School, have decided to attend Rowan University to study engineering and play basketball for the Profs. "We had some opportunities to do some other things individually," Nick DePersia said. "But we feel like we bring out the best in each other. " The twins both scored more than 1,000 career points and led Haddonfield to four consecutive Colonial Conference Liberty Division titles.

The astronaut Scott Kelly is about to take off for the International Space Station, and if he is like some space travelers, he may temporarily feel a bit foggy or disoriented once in orbit. Scientists have not had much luck measuring this subtle effect with standard cognitive tests, but now, a group of University of Pennsylvania researchers is trying a new tack. While Kelly is in space, they will compare his mental performance with that of a uniquely qualified individual who stays behind on Earth.

It was a typical game for the DePersia twins and the Haddonfield boys' basketball team. Nick DePersia was raining three-point jumpers. Rob DePersia was buzzing around the court, playing with "unmatched energy," according to coach Paul Wiedeman. It was all so familiar as the DePersia brothers led the way in host Haddonfield's 53-51 victory over Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference interdivision clash of Top 10 teams before a near-capacity crowd on a frigid Thursday night. But it also was something different.

Identical twins Deborah and Sandra "Sam" Fanelli have dual careers, both of which started in the kitchen. In the 1960s, they harmonized around the dinner table with their older brother, Leonard; later, as "the Fanelli Twins," they became stars of The Al Alberts Showcase on WPVI-TV. The statuesque pair - they were 5-foot-9 and classmates called them the "Jolly Green Giants" - went on to sing for 15 years in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and the Catskills, where a crowd at the Concord once gave their Rocky -themed dance number a standing ovation.

Dick Eastwick remembers his twin brother helping him with the plays. Bob Eastwick remembers his twin brother helping him in other ways. "It would be hot at practice, say in September," Bob Eastwick recalled. "They didn't let you drink water back then. You would be feeling sorry for yourself and I'd see my brother looking at me like, 'What the hell is the matter with you?' " Bob Eastwick would tough it out, thanks to his brother, Dick, thanks to legendary Haddonfield coach Russ Spicer and his assistants, and thanks to the sense of responsibility and camaraderie that swirled around that special football team.

Back in 2007, Marcus and Markieff Morris played basketball in Philadelphia in the shadows of Scoop Jardine, Rick Jackson, and Brad Wanamaker. At the time, Wanamaker was The Inquirer's Southeastern Pennsylvania player of the year as a senior at Roman Catholic High School. Jardine and Jackson were Syracuse-bound seniors at Neumann-Goretti. Meanwhile, the Morris twins were regarded as good but not great seniors at Prep Charter. Of the five, the Morrises were the least likely to play in the NBA. Or so we thought.

IN "THE SKELETON Twins," Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig turn their old "SNL" rapport into a convincing brother/sister dynamic. Be advised, though, this is not strictly or even mainly a comedy - Milo (Hader) has just attempted suicide, and the movie's opening shots tell you that Maggie (Wiig) is thinking along the same lines. And Milo's botched suicide is only his latest failure - he's an unemployed actor, he's just been dumped, and since his future in L.A. looks bleak, he agrees to move back to upstate New York and bunk with Maggie and her new husband, Lance (a Luke Wilson sighting!

For at least six girls on the Williamstown field hockey team, there's always someone special on the field they can count on. With three sets of sisters playing for the Braves - Allie and Jamie Trimble, Kamryn and Kate McKinney, and Gloria and Deborah Adebowale - the team dynamic and chemistry on the field have been an incredible sight for coach Kellyn Riley in her first year with the team.

Markieff and Marcus Morris smiled Saturday while they signed autographs at the Hunting Park Recreation Center in North Philadelphia. The twin forwards for the Phoenix Suns were sponsoring a back-to-school charity event, giving away 200 backpacks to students ages 5 to 15. The twins are happier when they're together. The Philadelphia natives played on the same teams growing up, in high school at Prep Charter and in college at Kansas. But they were separated early in their NBA careers when they were selected one pick apart in the 2011 NBA draft, until Marcus joined Markieff in Phoenix via a trade from the Houston Rockets in February 2013.
