TVLine's Performer of the Week (tie): Mandy Moore and Gaten Matarazzo

TVLine's Performer of the Week (tie): Mandy Moore and Gaten Matarazzo
The Performer | Mandy Moore

The Show | This Is Us

The Episode | “The 20s” (Oct. 31, 2017)

The Performance | Moore is heartbreaking as a new mom facing unexpected grief. She’s incredibly believable as a harried mother of three 10-year-olds. She’s a pro at portraying a widow with adult kids. And in this week’s episode, she did all three — gorgeously — in the space of an hour.

Though the episode ostensibly focused on The Big Three as they navigated their rocky 20s, Moore’s Rebecca was the one we couldn’t stop watching. In every iteration of Mama Pearson, Moore was fantastic.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar's Costume Is Straight Out of an '80s Rom-Com

  • Popsugar
A post shared by Sarah Michelle (@sarahmgellar) on Oct 31, 2017 at 5:55pm Pdt Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are pros at being ridiculously adorable on social media, and their Halloween costume was no exception. On Tuesday, the couple dressed up as Andie and Duckie from the '80s film Pretty in Pink. "Happy Halloween everyone!" the actor wrote alongside his snap. "Eat your heart out John Cryer! Next year . . . Maxwell Houser makes an appearance." Not only did Sarah don a red wig, but we can't get over how spot-on their clothes are. Guess these two are following suit of other celebs and going with the movie character theme this year.

Pretty In Pink: Jon Cryer discusses its original ending

Kirsten Howard Jul 10, 2017

31 years on, Jon Cryer talks about the original ending of Pretty In Pink, and whether Duckie should have got the girl...

Pretty In Pink is still fairly beloved in its own way.

See related Fargo season 3 episode 1 review: The Law Of Vacant Places

The romantic tale of Andie (Molly Ringwald), a girl from the wrong side of the tracks struggling with an unemployed father and dealing with bullying from her more privileged high school peers who falls for the wealthy and preposterously-named Blane (Andrew McCarthy), is still considered one of director John Hughes' better efforts.

But the ending originally shot for the movie had Andie ending up with her melodramatic best friend Duckie, who either comes across as a hopeless romantic or classic stalker material, depending on your point of view.

Jon Cryer, who played Duckie in the 1986 rom-com, recently had a chat with Entertainment Weekly
