Actor David Eigenberg of Sex and the City fame returns to his roots. People may be surprised to learn that you have a military background.

"I served in the Marine Core when I was younger," said David Eigenberg. "I was a reservist. A recruiter called me from the marine core and said I understand college wasn't for you. I went into the marine core reserves and it was one of the greatest things I had the opportunity to participate with."

And now he's participating in an organization for veterans.

When not on set in Los Angeles, Eigenberg is traveling the country promoting the Vet foundation or the veteran employment transition foundation that helps wounded, ill, or injured vets.

"You need the extra person that's going to say, I'm going to stand by you, and I'm going to make sure that you stay in this job and you get the help that you need," he said.

Eigenberg is helping by hosting a casual fundraiser Friday night at Mosaic on Hermann Park.

"Even though I played a bartender on television whenever I do these things, said Eigenberg. "Do you want a beer or wine."

"Anyone should come by. It's a small $20 at the door. And if you don't have it. Come in anyway. We want Americans to come in be aware and help out."

The event gets started at 7:00 p. m.

Now to what's new in music this week, fun loving country singer and 2009 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo performer Brad Paisley's latest. Paisley's single "Waitin on a Woman," is now available for download.

At the movies, kids favorite New Yorkers are back on the big screen. Central Park zoo animals Alex, the lion Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, Gloria the hippo, and the rest of the animals pick up where we last left them... stranded in Madagascar.

Soon they find a way to escape, but their reassembled airplane stays Airborne just long enough to make it to Africa where some of the animals start feeling right at home.

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa opens in theaters Friday and is Rated PG.

That's a Wrap of what's hot and happening in Houston.
