No parts have been filled. Casting agents who have received the breakdowns say this is the lineup of . what's needed: A 1 2-year-old boy to play Miles, the lead character. (Haley Joel Osment, anyone?) A 40-ish actor to play Miles' father, Paul, a white-collar, sophisticated, Ivy League type. . A thirtysomething actress to play Paul's business associate and possible love interest. A 25-ish actor to play a graduate student or paleontologist. An Andre Braugher type to play a 40-ish military attache. "Jurassic Park 3' (not its final title), produced by Spielberg, will be directed by Joe Johnston ("October Sky," "Jumanii") and released in July 2001 . USA Today HARVARD GRAD: Elisabeth Shue gets her degree. Celebrities Ivy League star at last Elisabeth Shue is leaving Cambridge. Shue, who earned an Oscar nomination for "Leavina Las Veaas." vjTV, was among the thousands who donned caps and gowns and graduated from Harvard University on Thursday. Shue was one semester short of earning a political science degree when she dropped out of Harvard 1 5 years ago to start her acting career. Her brother, former "Melrose Place" star Andrew Shue, was in the audience at graduation, along with her husband, film director Davis Guggenheim, and their 3-year-old son, Miles. Shue's newest film "Hollow Man," a science-fiction thriller starring Kevin Bacon opens July 28. Associated Press Television Top comedies? Just when you thought it was safe to stop thinking in blocks of 100, the American Film Institute, or AFI, is coming out with the 100 Funniest Films of All Time. This list follows on the heels of the 100 Greatest Films of All Time and the 50 Greatest Actors and 50 Greatest Actresses of All Time (winners: Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn). The results will be revealed Tuesday on "AFI's 100 Years 100 Laughs," slated for 8 p.m. to 1 1 p.m. Tuesday on KTVN Channel 2. Drew Barrymore, whose films are SEEK & FIND . IP I Barrymore unlikely to appear in the Top 100 will serve as host. Commentators will include Steve Martin, Whoopi Goldberg, Robin Williams and Billy Crystal. The list will remain a closely guarded secret until airtime, if the AFI has anything to say about it. But among the safe bets are such disparate yuck-fests as "National Lampoon's Animal House," "A Night at the Opera," "Modern Times," "Bringing Up Baby, "Ghostbusters," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (if it isn't in the Top 10, the list is rigged) and "Airplane!" Of course, if the AFI voters really knew what they were doing, they'd have included John Travolta's recent turn as a dreadlocked alien nasty in "Battlefield Earth." Now that was a laugh riot! Baltimore Sun Remakes 'Shaft' and the director 'Shaft' star Samuel L. Jackson says that making the movie was no stroll on the beach and appears to be gunning for director John Singleton. "John is like many young directors I've worked with,' Jackson huffed at a recent press junket in L.A. "They've done five or eight films, (and) I've made close to 70. 1 know better than they do what works for Samuel L. Jackson." Singleton was more reserved when discussing Jackson. 'Sam is opinionated, but I respect that, he said. Neither minced words when talking about producer Scott Ftudin, pointing to him as 'the big problem.' "With Scott it always boiled down to issues of control," Singleton said, citing disagreements over dialogue as the main issue. , "I told him point-blank that I refused to say that white man's lines," Jackson said, referring to Richard Price, the author Rudin brought in to rework Singleton's original screenplay. "Richard Price tried to put certain words in my mouth," Jackson said. "I'd do it my way, and poor John would have Scott Rudin breathing in his ear demanding that he make me say the lines they'd paid so much money for."
