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!

TWINS Taleon and Keyontyli Goffney had their first run-in with police at 13, when the brothers from Camden saw a horse, mounted it - bareback - and took it for a joyride together. "We were from Camden, we'd never seen a horse before," Taleon said. "It was like a unicorn to us. " The twins' last contact with police came in 2008, when they were arrested by a tristate Rooftop Burglary Task Force that was formed just to catch them breaking into businesses by cutting holes in the roofs.

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.

ONE LANDLORD speaking before the Philadelphia Historical Commission on Friday said there was nothing special about a block of 1870s twin rowhouses on Chestnut Street near 41st. "These are just your basic West Philadelphia rowhouses," argued Eapen Kalathil, principal owner of one of the twins being considered for historic designation. "They are plain brick houses, with no porches. " But Kalathil would not win his argument. The commission voted to place his property at 4054 Chestnut St. and two other twins on the block - 4050 and 4052 - on the city's historic register.

MINNEAPOLIS - As Jerad Eickhoff's pitch count mounted Thursday afternoon, every ball he threw carried the weight of a nine-game losing streak and a drained group of pitchers. A rebuilding process guarantees trying times, moments for a young player to separate himself, and that is what Eickhoff has done. The Phillies avoided their worst losing streak in 17 years with a 7-3 win over Minnesota. They have won three of their last 17 games, and Eickhoff was the winning pitcher all three times.

MINNEAPOLIS —  As the Phillies staggered to Minnesota for the start of a nine-day trip, Pete Mackanin and Andy MacPhail met Monday night on the team's charter plane. The manager, naturally, was frustrated by his sinking team. The president stressed a bigger picture. "The main thing is pitching," Mackanin said a day later, to reiterate MacPhail's strategy. "Pitching is so expensive that we're more concerned about developing the pitching to see what we have and let these guys gain experience.

Some college students go away to Florida for the winter break or hang out at home, catching up with high school friends. Not twin brothers Daniel and Caleb Tate, of Cochranville, in Chester County, according to authorities. The brothers were busy making bombs, and then exploding them, the Chester County District Attorney's Office said Tuesday. The Tate twins, 22, of the unit block of Linmar Lane, made five homemade bombs and set them off in Chester and Lancaster Counties during their winter break, authorities said.

When the twin girls arrived at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in March, just two months after they were born, both had broken legs. One also had a fractured rib and an injury of the spine - indicative of shaking. Both were malnourished. Some injuries were new, others old. Both girls, Bucks County authorities allege, were hurt at the hands of their mother and father. In court documents filed Sunday, investigators described a pattern of abuse inflicted by a Tullytown couple on their infant daughters - at times so severe that investigators say the injuries could have resulted in death.

Unlike the neighborhoods in and around Center City, the region's suburbs aren't in the throes of a building boom. There are a lot of reasons for that, but the biggest are high land costs with a limited amount of buildable land or finished lots, a higher-priced home market, and a limited skilled-labor pool that has delayed homes being built in time as well as getting infrastructure in place. That appraisal, by Quita Syhapanya of Metrostudy, is echoed by suburban builders and Realtors.

They are twins marked by differences as well as similarities. Ryan Lauk is tall and rangy. He throws and bats from the right side. He's a pitcher in addition to a first baseman, and he threw a no-hitter in Clearview's season opener last Friday against Delsea. Eric Lauk is more compact than his younger-by-a-minute sibling. He says his brother got the height and arm strength, and he got the foot speed. He bats from the left side and patrols center field "from foul line to foul line," according to Clearview coach Rocco Cornacchia.

Bill would help abuse victims HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania lawmakers are advancing legislation that would give future victims of sexual abuse as children more time to sue as adults and prosecutors more time to make an arrest. The House Judiciary Committee voted Tuesday 26-1 to eliminate a time limit on filing charges in child sexual-abuse cases and to give child victims an additional 20 years to sue, or until they turn 50. Currently, state law prevents prosecutors from charging child predators if the victim already turned 50. The bill also would remove civil lawsuit immunity from schools and government agencies that are found to be grossly negligent in child sex-abuse cases.
