It's come to this. The two most public figures of hedonistic excess and hurricane-level character destruction, meeting at last to decide who will have the better future film career based solely on their past shenanigans.
They appear together in the fifth installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise, debuting this Friday, and by all accounts, their time on set together was nothing but peaceful. But that ends today, folks. It ends now.
Sheen versus Lohan. Get your popcorn/breathalyzers ready.
Best Past Performance
Charlie Sheen: "Wall Street" (1987)
Verdict: "Mean Girls" represents the pinnacle of Lindsay Lohan hotness. She was staggeringly pretty in "Mean Girls," to the point where, sure, we noticed Amanda Seyfried, Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert next to her at the lunch table but remained completely disinterested in them, like Aaron Samuels. (Aaron Samuels was the worst, by the way. Cool bowl cut, »

Angela Kinsey is set as the female lead opposite Rob Riggle in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot The Gabriels. Written by Andrew Gurland and Justin Hurwitz and directed by Jason Winer, The Gabriels centers on a gleefully antisocial family learning to act normal and make friends for the sake of their kids. Kinsey, who currently appears as Angela Martin, the rigid company accountant on NBC’s The Office, will play the mom, Gail Gabriel. A therapist by profession, Gail is the slightly more mature member of her marriage than her husband Ken (Riggles). Co-starring in the pilot is Tim Meadows as the local school principal. The Gabriels is executive produced by Gurland, Hurwitz, David Dobkin, Peter Principato and Paul Young. Earlier this season, Kinsey, along with Rachael Harris, were attached to star in another comedy project for Fox, which had a put pilot commitment. Kinsey’s deal for The Gabriels »

Kinsey comes aboard the project as Gail Gabriel, the therapist wife of Rob Riggle’s leading man. Not unlike the actress’ longtime Office alter ego, this character has a knack for making people feel pretty awful about themselves — only on The Gabriels she’ll be be impacting her patients, not her co-workers.

After winning a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role as the indomitable Liz Lemon in 30 Rock, the former SNL writer told E! a stage version of the 2004 movie is in the works. "I'm trying to develop it, actually, with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount's onboard."
Fey has floated the idea idea of a stage adaption before, suggesting in an interview with MTV in 2007 that her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, had written some 'Mean Girls'-inspired songs. And she got our hopes up again earlier this year when Vulture probed the former SNL writer about the rumored musical: "I'm pretty sure — I'm confident that Paramount will give us the permission to work on it, »

There are only a couple hours left in the history of 30 Rock. By the end of "Florida," we learned that there is just one episode left in the history of Tgs with Tracy Jordan.
Yup, thanks to Hazel's lawsuit, and the host of other issues those crazy people have brought upon themselves recently, Hank Hooper said that it's finished. Did we expect anything different for the end of 30 Rock?
I didn't. It will be interesting to see what Tgs does for its final hurrah, and then even more intriguing to to see where our favorite characters end up before the final scene fades to black.
Thanks to a trip to his mother's place in Florida, where he met what turned out to be Colleen's late-in-life lesbian partner, Jack realized that not everyone has to be what they seem like. Could he ever have imagined a world where his cold, sarcastic mother was actually a joyous, »

It’s the final countdown! In “Florida,” Jack was still riding the high of defeating Kaylie Hooper to claim his rightful spot as Kabletown CEO. But since the promotion wasn’t official just yet, he was tying up some loose ends. That included a trip to Florida to take care of his mother’s estate. He invited Liz to accompany him, and she agreed in an effort to be more spontaneous. But the mentor/mentee got quite a shock when they discovered that Colleen’s live-in nurse, Martha, was much more than a nurse. At first, Jack believed his mother had been scammed. »

When Jack and Liz are away, Jenna and Tracy will play on "30 Rock."
In the Thursday, Jan. 17 episode, "Florida," Jack and Liz head to Florida to deal with Colleen's estate, Pete hits a producer's convention -- he even packed a wig -- and that leaves Jenna and Tracy in charge, which means 3,000,000 oranges and an elevator full of water, apparently.
Check out the exclusive clip to see for yourself.
Here's NBC's official description:
