Scripps Howard News Service HOLLYWOOD - James Earl Jones, currently starring in the TV series "Gabriel's Fire," wants more realism and fewer superheroes in movies and TV.

Jones, honored at a banquet of the Los Angeles Film Teachers Association, is pushing for realistic role models, even if they make some kids squirm."I would much rather give young people . . . a sense of the real problems, and the difficulty in solving real problems, and present to them real problem solvers," he said.
