Remember when A&E really was an arts and entertainment channel? It sure didn't take long for the cable marketplace to downscale A&E to shows about the same kinds of TV and film celebs you see on plain old E!, but at least A&E's Biography series has upscale-looking dark and richly elegant print ads, thanks to the lens of Annie Leibovitz. Other celebs in the series include Muhammad Ali, Jerry Seinfeld and Nicolas Cage.
