Jessica Biel has come a long way, baby, from her days as a preacher's kid on Seventh Heaven. Now that she's fighting vampires in the upcoming Blade: Trinity, Biel is letting her inner tough-girl out to play. "It was so much fun. I loved it," says the actress of the action in the movie, which also stars Wesley Snipes and Ryan Reynolds. "What a dream to be able to kick boys' butts all day long. Girl power!" Girl power, indeed: To get ready for her butt-kicking role as a "Nightstalker," Biel says she "trained about six days a week in the gym. There was weightlifting and then I had about an hour of fight training a day and an hour of archery. So it was intense, and it was for the whole shoot." All that training has certainly boosted her confidence, too: When we asked who would win in a fight between her character and that other vampire slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar's Buffy, Biel says: "She's got stakes, but I could get her from a hundred yards away." Blade: Trinity opens Dec. 8.

After eight seasons "Home Improvement" star Tim Allen is calling it quits. "This is the end of the road," he told TV journalists visiting the set of the top-rated ABC sitcom. "I don't know how many different ways I can say it," he continued, "but when it's just about the money and it's just about the ratings, then it's just about over." Allen, who is TV's highest-paid star and makes $1.5 million per episode, says he intends to pursue his still-fledgling movie career. The final "Home Improvement" episode will air in May.
