The Client List Shows Trevor Donovan Some Love

20 December 2012 3:26 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Model and actor Trevor Donovan is most widely known as his character Teddy Montgomery from 90210. Jennifer Love Hewitt will get to know him. She is about to land the hottie on her table; her massage table, that is. I’m not sure which of the pair is luckier!

We are referring, of course, to Hewitt’s Lifetime channel series, The Client List. Donovan has lined up a guest appearance, as was reported by Zap2it.

Actually, 90210 fans were probably breathing a sigh of relief to see Donovan’s character back in action after he was missing in action for quite some time on the youthful series. Now they’ll get a double dose of Donovan if they tune into The Client List.

Donovan’s character will be an NFL quarterback. Yes, he’ll patronize who The Rub, Riley’s massage parlor that is really a den of pleasure. Hewitt’s »

Seven Queens of TV Sarcasm

30 October 2012 12:17 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

“Honey, tact is for people who aren’t witty enough to be sarcastic,” Will & Grace’s Karen Walker once said. And boy would she know! She and her six cohorts listed here are simply in a league of their own in terms of biting wit.

Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) Designing Women, 1986-93

The woman who never met a soapbox she couldn’t climb, Julia was often the mouthpiece for Designing Women creator and writer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason’s political stances, including standing up for HIV+ people when it was still unpopular and generally setting Atlanta society straight about the issues of the day. And, really, who could forget "the night the lights went out in Georgia?"...

Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) Ugly Betty, 2006-10

‘Should They Or Shouldn’t They?’ An Imperative Question In TV Relationships

14 October 2012 10:09 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

This year is the fifth season of ABC’s dramedy Castle, and one thing makes it stand out from the rest: Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic), after four seasons of romantic tension, are finally together.

“Will they or won’t they?” is the TV equivalent of “What came first: The chicken or the egg?” — everyone asks it, and no answer is for sure. But the question that should be asked more frequently in TV is, “Should they or shouldn’t they?”

Most series approach this crossroads. And many consequently fear the Moonlighting curse, which references the ABC’s 1980s crime drama and its decline in popularity once leads Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis got together.

NBC’s The Office seems to have recently faced the curse. Though the comedy still did well in the ratings following Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam’s »

Kristin Davis: 'Ivory is basically a blood diamond'

4 October 2012 1:05 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'They tied the elephant to the tree till it died and then sawed its face off – walk half a mile and there'll be another one. It's bad'

When Kristin Davis became involved with wildlife conservation, the combination of celebrity and cause probably seemed less incongruous. On holiday in a Kenyan safari park, the actor, who made her name as prim heiress Charlotte York in hit TV show Sex and the City, joined the hunt for a lost baby elephant when a Maasai elder waved down the truck in which she was travelling and raised the alarm.

She followed the trail for two days, and filmed what happened when the team found the animal, later named Chaimu after the lava rocks where she was found.

"She kept trying to charge us, she was so traumatised and angry. We had to cover her eyes and tie her feet, you feel so horrible »

Are New Girl's Nick and Jess the New Ross and Rachel?

1 October 2012 7:08 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

In the eight years since Friends went off the air, there have been many couples on television that viewers have rooted for to fill the void left by Ross and Rachel, a classic will-they-or-won't-they couple that eventually made good on their undeniable chemistry. So it comes as no surprise that New Girl's Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) have become the focus of yet another hardcore fandom desperately hoping their favorite duo will finally take the plunge.

New Girl Creator Liz Meriwether: Jess goes "off the grid" in Season 2

Many shows have suffered from crossing that line, though, with the Moonlighting curse becoming a turn of phrase in the TV lexicon. The sizzling sexual chemistry between Moonlighting leads Maddie and David (Cybill Shepherd, Bruce Willis) initially boosted ratings, but after the characters hooked up in Season 3, the show began to falter and viewership began to plummet. Fearful of a similar fallout, »

The Star Market: Does Bruce Willis Have Some Fight Left in Him?

28 September 2012 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's no wonder that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has to don a lot of prosthetics to resemble Bruce Willis in the new sci-fi film Looper, since they don't make young stars quite like Willis anymore. That may have proved a good thing for the 57-year-old actor, since the lack of competitors keeps him employed, but has he watered down his brand with too many negligible movies as of late? To take stock of his current career path and to find out whether Willis is still held in great esteem as a movie star, we polled industry insiders to ask one simple question: If Bruce Willis were a stock, would you buy, sell, or hold?Stock History: Willis came to fame on the clever detective dramedy Moonlighting, but by the end of the TV show's run, he'd virtually vanished from it: Not only was he warring with costar Cybill Shepherd, but Die Hard »

The Good Wife’s Christine Baranski: From ‘Skinny Funny Girl’ to Ten-Time Emmy Nominee

19 September 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Christine Baranski just keeps getting discovered. When she graduated from Juilliard in 1974, she went straight to work in the theater and got herself two Tonys before the age of 40. In the mid-nineties, she decided to try TV and won not only a juicy role — Cybill Shepherd’s martini-swilling best friend on Cybill — but, thirteen episodes later, an Emmy. So it seemed only natural when, in her fifties, Baranski told her manager, “You know, I’m not sure I need to do any more comedy,” and mused about trying a drama-series role, “someone serious and well spoken — someone with dignity.” Soon enough, she was playing Diane Lockhart on The Good Wife — and she’s up for an Emmy again. It’s her tenth nomination in seventeen years.Curled up in her dressing room on The Good Wife’s Greenpoint set, Baranski recounts her odd career path. “Never an ingénue!” she declares, »

Q&A: John Stamos' Career 'Best'

28 August 2012 11:44 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With his megawatt grin, perfectly coiffed hair, bottomless charisma and likeability rating, John Stamos would have made one killer politician. Aside from the fact he swore years ago to never publicly comment on his personal beliefs, be they religious or political. But that doesn't mean Stamos shies away from hot button projects, like his latest play, Broadway's The Best Man.

As Senator Joseph Cantwell, the charlatan competing for the 1960 Presidential nomination, Stamos exudes a steely calm and magnetic power he's yet to capitalize on professionally. Before Stamos wraps up his critically acclaimed run alongside James Earl Jones, John Larroquette, Cybill Shepherd and Kristin Davis, he chatted with ETonline about the power of politics, how the current presidential election is influencing The Best Man and why it may next affect his Oikos Yogurt commercials.

John Stamos: It's 'Exhausting' Playing a Slimy Politician

28 August 2012 7:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Stamos is having the time of his life in Broadway's The Best Man - but his character, ruthless presidential candidate Joseph Cantwell, is about as far a cry from Uncle Jesse as you can get. "It's one of the hardest things, to be a bastard for two hours and 40 minutes," Stamos tells People. "It's exhausting." "I'm not used to that as an actor, to make people not like me," he says. "I spent 30 years doing the opposite! But I know that I'm not doing the piece justice or the character justice if I don't lean into making him the snake that he is. »

High school, as Buffy The Vampire Slayer literally reminds us, can be hell. Here then, are 27 movie mean girls who make it so...

27. Betty Rizzo - Grease 

Ah Grease, with your insidious message that taking up smoking and dressing like a massive-haired figure skater was the way to your true love's heart, you truly are a classic amongst teen movies.

Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Cameron Diaz: Models who've turned actress

30 July 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Candice Bergen: With several different careers to her credit, modeling was one of them for this multiple Emmy winner for "Murphy Brown," seen most recently on Broadway in "The Best Man."

Ali MacGraw: Her movie output wasn't enormous, but "Love Story" alone was a hugely significant credit for her.

Cybill Shepherd: One of the most stunning transitions from model to actress was made by this "Moonlighting" star in her iconic screen debut, "The Last Picture Show."

Lauren Hutton: "American Gigolo" cemented her transition from someone who posed for the cameras into someone who truly acted for them.

Lois Chiles: Roles that relied largely on her beauty ("The Way We Were," "Moonraker") led to her deeper acting ("Broadcast News," "Say Anything ... .")

Morning Meme: Bristol Palin Says Tripp Used "The Other F-Word," the Return of "Blake's 7," and Daniel Tosh Gives Us Gay Moose In "Brickleberry"

24 July 2012 4:49 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Kellan Lutz is set to star in All You Need Is Love? with Camilla Belle. It's set in a world where being gay is the norm. Belle will play a star quarterback with a big fan base, while Lutz will play an aspiring journalist who falls in love with her, secretly, until the truth comes out and they find themselves bullied. So the way I read this is that Kellan Lutz is starring in a nearly all-gay movie as the only straight man – how is that fair to my fantasy life?

Bristol Palin and her production director are challenging reports that her son Tripp said "faggot" on their reality show. He actually said "f*ck" not faggot when they laughed, and Bristol is a victim of the left, again. So how about we give her that she's not allowing her son to say slurs and just allowing him to swear like a sailor? »
