directed and stars with Samuel L. Jackson in HBO’s The Sunset Limited, debuting Feb. 12. “I always wanted to do other jobs—directing, writing, producing,” says Jones, 64. Coming up: Men in Black III. “I get a kick out of being in that suit, shooting squid again.”

Q: Rachael Ray

has a hard time keeping track of her bling. “I usually take off my wedding rings when I’m cooking with messy ingredients and then leave them places,” she says. “My husband is terrified that I’m going to lose them, so two years ago he bought me a simple band of black diamonds. It doesn’t have

A: According to a spokesperson for the NFL, the league doesn’t pay artists an appearance fee—but it does cover expenses (including entourages). Plus, they get to play in front of a TV audience of 110 million. This year, the Black Eyed Peas have that honor.

Q: Was Kristen

Stewart the first choice to play Bella in the Twilight films? —S. Rickabaugh, Johnstown, Pa.

A: Though Stephenie

Meyer blogged that she initially liked Emily Browning for the role, once casting began, Stewart was the unanimous choice. The actress, 20, is currently shooting Parts 1 and 2 of the final book, Breaking Dawn. The first is out Nov. 18.

supporting roles in films including King Kong and Defiance over the last 10 years, Bell, 24, is taking center stage again, opposite Channing Tatum in the Roman epic The Eagle. “I’ve really bided my time,” he says. “I took smaller parts and never got bothered that I wasn’t the main event.” Not that Bell isn’t competitive: “Channing and I were all about who got the fastest horse, the biggest sword. It was lots of fun and games.”

Those memories came back to her after a 2008 trip to Appalachia with Save the Children, which is dedicated to fighting poverty and illiteracy in America. Determined to involve the next generation, Moore founded the Save the Children Valentine’s Day Card Contest. “I was looking for another holiday that kids could participate in by donating their time and money to help other kids. Valentine’s Day is huge for children. It’s about friendship. I wanted to extend that to being friends with everybody in America.” For this year’s contest, children from across the country drew Valentine’s Day cards and then voted on their favorites. The top five winners are available for purchase at k2kusa.org for $25 a box (24 cards), with all proceeds going to Save the Children. “It is a way of sending money where it’s needed,” Moore says, “and teaching children that the little things they do can really make a difference.”—Kirsty Hughan

How did Latin become a “dead” language? —Abigail Woodbury, Brookline, Mass.

Many people would say that Latin is alive in the form of French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish, which were once its dialects. Nevertheless, it is called dead because it’s no longer anyone’s native tongue. As the Roman Empire declined, the dialects became languages of their own. However, today Latin itself is experiencing a surge of popularity in schools. One reason could be J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, which is full of Latin spells. Now it’s the language of magic.

F for 48 years running,

PARADE has picked the top high school football players in America. This year, working with Sporting News, we chose 53 seniors from 22 states, whose on-the-field performances represent the best of high school football. Meet five of these standout players: f Kasen Williams

Dee Hart F

DEE HART started

playing football at age 3, when he would tag along with his older brothers and their friends in Avon Park, Fla. “I like the excitement and adrenaline,” he says. “Sometimes I don’t like the calls, but that’s the beast of the game—you get used to it and you play.” In his senior year at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, he rushed for 2,224 yards and set the state single-season touchdown record with 50. Dee, also named the U.S. Army National Player of the Year last month, doesn’t mind the stress that comes with his impressive stats: “My uncle always told me, ‘Pressure breeds titans,’ so I don’t get caught up in it.” Dee is committed to Alabama for next season and is already thinking about life after college—which right now doesn’t necessarily include the NFL. “I’m thinking bigger than that. I want to own football, own the team,” he says. He’ll major in business management but, he’s quick to note with a smile, wants to minor in criminal justice. “If it doesn’t work out in business, then I know I can go to the NYPD.” RUNNING BACK ORLANDO, FLA. HEIGHT: 5'8" WEIGHT: 185 LBS

WIDE RECEIVER SAMMAMISH, WASH. HEIGHT: 6'2" WEIGHT: 210 LBS

leading parade’s list is our Player of the Year, Kasen Williams, an 18-year-old wide receiver from Sammamish, Wash. Kasen, who likes The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (but isn’t a fan of video games), credits his father, Aaron—a former receiver for the St. Louis Cardinals— with passing along his passion for the game. Kasen plans to attend his parents’ alma mater, the University of Washington, next fall. And he’s even hoping to wear the No. 2 jersey, the one his father wore as a receiver for the Huskies from 1979 to 1982. “It’s going to be me Visit us at PARADE.COM

following in his footsteps,” Kasen says. “I know he’s going to be happy seeing me doing the exact same thing he did.” Making it onto the PARADE All-America list “means a lot, especially coming out of Washington,” he says. “We have a lot of talent up here, but it’s not a big football state nationally.” Kasen was one of only two Washington players invited to play in the U.S. Army AllAmerican Bowl last month in San Antonio, Tex., a national all-star game for high schoolers. Kasen spends most of his time in Sammamish, a Seattle suburb, playing sports and

hanging out with friends. Small-town life has its advantages: “It gives me the opportunity to focus on football. There aren’t a lot of things that can get you off track.” In his four years on varsity at Sammamish’s Skyline High School, where he’s also a

track-and-field star, Kasen played in four state championship games—and his team won three. Kasen is a career record-holder at Skyline, with 232 receptions, 4,121 yards, and 56 touchdowns. This season he broke singleseason numbers in all three stats, with 86 receptions, 1,579 yards, and 21 touchdowns. “The records he set—I don’t know if they’ll ever be broken,” says Skyline head coach Mat Taylor. Kasen believes he’ll continue his streak at Washington. “I feel like I’m hitting there at the perfect time,” he says. “After the season they had, and knowing that every year under Coach F February 6, 2011 • 7

Viliami Moala’s uncles told him. His family, which emigrated from Tonga to California about 20 years ago, had long considered rugby the real sport. But five years ago, Viliami’s older brother Sione, a defensive end at Grant Union High School in Sacramento, changed all that. “He tricked me one day and said, ‘We’re going to go to

To Viliami, the game provides the ultimate adrenaline rush: “I enjoy it—like when it’s fourth and 1, and you have to get that stop.” At 6 feet 3 and 335 pounds, he has earned the nickname “Tiny” from his team. “I’m not that fast, but I have brute strength.” One song that pumps him up for the game: Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.”

“That gets me going. I got my teammates hooked on it,” Viliami says, laughing. “Now it’s a weekly routine before we practice. We put it on and I dance a little bit.” With the season over, he’s savoring senior year. He plans to attend UC Berkeley next fall but says, “I don’t know if I’m ready to graduate yet. Too much love, especially for the cafeteria ladies. They always sneak me extra plates of food!”” He’s also not ready to move out of his family home, where he lives with his parents, grandparents, and five siblings—“the best supporters I have.”

KICKER CANTON, MICH. HEIGHT: 6'2" WEIGHT: 215 LBS

WHEN KYLE BRINDZA A was

born with a club foot, doctors told his parents he would never be able to play contact sports sports. But even after enduring seven operations on his right foot by age 12, he persevered. “I worked to get all the strength back in my leg and go out and play,” the Michigan resident recalls. A year after his last surgery, Kyle’s efforts paid off, and he joined a local club

soccer team. Once Plymouth High School football coach Mike Sawchuk heard about Kyle’s powerful leg, he recruited the freshman to be the new varsity kicker. And playing both sports turned out to be easier than Kyle expected. “There were a lot of tweaks I had to make to my kicking, but my power was always there. I willed myself to become the best I could possibly be.” The 18-year-old is now the top kicker in Michigan, finishing his senior year with 19 field field goals and an average of 45 yards per punt. Next up: playing for Notre Dame this fall. “I love facing adversity,” Kyle says. “When people put the odds against me, I always want to throw them back in their faces and say, ‘I accomplished everything you said I couldn’t.’ ”

The 80-year-old NFL Hall of Famer went from a dazzling career with the New York Giants to Monday Night Football, where he was a commentator for more than two decades (in fact, he’s still featured on ESPN’s Monday night broadcasts). Here he shares memories and game-day menus with Jeanne Wolf.

wealthy, but they also get hounded by people who want to take advantage of them. They have to learn to deal with that. Do you feel Michael Vick was treated fairly? I think people ought to get over it and let Vick put his life back together. What he did was wrong, but people need to think about what kinds of influences he was subject to as a kid. Frankly, I think he’s one of the best ever to play the game, and I said that before he got into the dog trouble.

during the Super Bowl today? If you want to understand more of the game, you stay home and watch it on television. So I’ll be with a close-knit group of friends, making sure we don’t run out of hot dogs and grilling my special cheeseburgers. I’ll probably eat three or four hot dogs myself. I’ve never been able to duplicate the ones you get at a game, though. I’ve asked over and over where they get them, and they won’t tell you. You were one of the commentators for the first Super Bowl, weren’t you? Yes, and a lot of people then thought that the idea of a Super Bowl was ridiculous. It wasn’t even sold out. Of course, it became the premier TV sports event. No one I know would miss it, except [laughs] maybe Kathie [Lee Gifford, his wife]. How would you rate today’s players?

With us it wasn’t that big a deal. I was the Giants’ No. 1 draft pick in 1952, and the only reason I joined the team was that I had just gotten married and we decided it would be fun to spend a year in New York. Today, some of the players are so great that they stand out a lot more than when I

played, especially quarterbacks like the Mannings and Brady. But after them, the playing goes down a notch. That may make some of the others mad at me, but it’s true. What about the challenge of being a star player? They’re getting paid a lot more than I did. They’re enormously

Tell us about the Monday night when your broadcast team had wh to break the news of John Lennon’s death. Le We were doing a game in Miami, W and our producer came on and said, “You’re not going to believe this, but somebody just killed John Lennon. We gotta go with it.” And I said, “We’re not going with it until we make sure.” Earlier that year somebody had called the booth and said someone else had been shot, and when we called him back it was a wrong number. Those things could happen. So I said, “You get ahold of Roone S Arledge,” head of ABC Sports, and Roone got on the phone and said [it was true]. It shattered me. I told Howard [Cosell], “What you’re about to say is gonna rattle the world for a long time to come.” Because to him, you know, John Lennon was just one of those Beatles. But Howard was terrific. I replayed it the other day, and I thought we handled it really well.

Ingrid’s Tips

Calling All Chocoholics! I’m a chocoholic. A few years ago, I had a flourless chocolate soufflé cake at a restaurant and thought, This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. I went home and found a similar recipe online. It looked easy, but when I made it for a party it came out of the oven a brown, sunken-in, not-very-appetizing thing.

Flourless Chocolate Cake “This is so easy! It’s always the biggest hit at parties.” 7 oz really good (45–50% cocoa) semisweet chocolate 3/4 cup butter 1 cup sugar, divided 4 eggs, separated

1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Stir together half the sugar and four yolks; add to melted chocolate concoction. 2. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites; slowly add remaining 1/2 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Fold mixture into chocolate. Pour into a greased 9-inch cake pan. 3. Bake 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Cool 30 minutes before removing from pan. Dust with powdered sugar.

Everyone else brought along beautiful frosted cakes and fancy desserts—and there sat my lump of brown nothingness. But once people tried it, it was gone in seconds. Since then, I’ve made one every single year. And each time someone says, “Okay, what’s this?” and then, “Oh my God! What is this?”

P “To make individual servings, substitute nine ramekins or small oven-safe coffee cups and bake 30 minutes.”

P ”You’ll need a good 10-speed mixer to beat the egg whites into nice stiff peaks that will make the cake light and fluffy— unlike my first attempt, when I used a very old mixer.”

All the sound without all the wires.

The Bose Wave ®

music

Just plug it in and hear what you’ve been missing. With the Bose Wave® music system, there are no stacks of components. No tangle of wires. No dials to adjust. Advanced Bose technologies inside this small system work together to fill the room with the acclaimed performance that has made Bose the most respected name in sound. Audio writer Wayne Thompson of the Oregonian calls it “one-of-a-kind” and “my choice for product of the year.” You enjoy clear, realistic sound that you may have only thought possible from a much larger, more complicated stereo. In fact, Forbes FYI reports that “you’ll think you’re listening to a…sound system that costs five times more.”

Shown in Titanium Silver with optional Multi-CD Changer.
