Gilmore Girls: The Reason Emily's Maid Is So Familiar Will Blow Your Mind

28 November 2016 3:05 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Gilmore Girls went out of its way to create fun moments for superfans, but there's one connection in A Year in the Life that is nearly impossible to see right off the bat. Emily's new maid Berta, the one she actually likes and keeps finally, is played by an actress we've all definitely met already: Rose Abdoo. While the name may not ring a bell, you'll definitely recognize her in her usual getup as Gypsy the mechanic: Same. Person. Abdoo has appeared on Scandal, Veep, Parenthood (with her fellow costar Lauren Graham), and Mike & Molly (with her other fellow costar, Melissa McCarthy), but this time, she's hiding in plain sight! Boom.

Did You Spot This Gilmore Girls: A Year a in the Life Actress Doing a Secret Dual Role?

28 November 2016 6:33 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was filled with cameos from Sutton Foster to Mae Whitman and everyone in between—but there was one cameo you probably missed: Rose Abdoo. Yes, she was back as Stars Hollow mechanic Gypsy, but the actress pulled double duty in the Gilmore Girls revival by playing Emily's (Kelly Bishop) maid, Berta. "Rose read it for fun in a table read because they hadn't cast it yet," series star Lauren Graham confirmed on Twitter, "and she was so hilarious they had to double her up!" TVLine first pointed out Abdoo's dual roles. Abdoo's Berta is the first maid to stick it out with Emily Gilmore…pretty much ever. She was with her through the whole »

Here Are the Best-Cast Films of 2016, According to Top Casting Directors

23 November 2016 9:07 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Casting directors have a strange distinction in the awards world: Their guild has an Academy branch, but it’s the only one without its own Oscar category. Imagine for a moment that they did. What are the best-cast films of 2016?

IndieWire asked 13 of the top casting directors to nominate films worthy of casting recognition this year. There were a few restrictions worth noting. Although casting directors often get early sneak peeks at films, many noted there are some films they still hadn’t seen. In particular, many are anxious to find out what legendary casting director Ellen Lewis has cooked up for Martin Scorsese’s “Silence.” The other restriction, which was imposed as responses came in: They couldn’t all write about “Moonlight.” (We’ll dig further into the casting of that film in another article.)

Netflix Unveils ‘Gilmore Girls’ 2016 Release Date and New Clip

27 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’ll be a very “Gilmore” Black Friday. All four 90-minute “chapters” of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” will premiere on Netflix at midnight Pacific Time on Friday, Nov. 25, meaning that fans are officially 120 days from fresh quips from Lorelai and Rory.

To tide you over until then, Netflix has also released a clip featuring Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham together again. They tease what’s to come while trading lines about Amy Schumer and John Oliver:

Schumer responded to the teaser, writing “I’ve only done two water sports and they took pictures of it both times. I promise I usually just lay there (sex too),” in reference to Rory telling Lorelai in the promo that Schumer wouldn’t like her because her mom is no fan of water sports.

Melissa McCarthy made her debut on the set of Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival with a photo recently posted on Instagram.

Melissa McCarthy to Return for ‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival as Sookie

7 April 2016 6:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It looks like Sookie will be back after all.

After months of speculation — and both McCarthy and the series’ showrunner weighing in — McCarthy announced on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she’ll be returning for Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival as Sookie.

“Literally about an hour and half ago we figured out that I’m gonna go back and do it and I am so excited,” she told DeGeneres. “And they are gonna be amazing.”

The episode of “Ellen” is set to debut on Friday.

McCarthy is one of the last series originals to be announced for the Netflix revival. Previously, showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino pointed to McCarthy’s “really f–king busy” schedule as the reason she wouldn’t be appearing in the show.

“Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene,” she told TVLine in February. “Melissa was one of us. »

‘Gilmore Girls’: First Look at Netflix Revival

7 April 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix has released first-look photos of its anticipated “Gilmore Girls” reboot to Entertainment Weekly.

The series of images preview the Gilmore mother-daughter duo of Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and an all-grown-up Rory (Alexis Bledel) as well as other series originals like Luke Danes (Scott Patterson), Gypsy (Rose Abdoo), Babette Dell (Sally Struthers) and Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop), who’s now a widow.

Though the first-glimpse photos divulge minimal plot details, an image of Luke and Lorelai hand-in-hand implies that the beloved couple will be “on again” for the series’ Netflix revival — or for part of it, anyway. There’s also an image of Rory in a classroom setting, suggesting that the once-aspiring journalist may have pursued a different career path.

Gilmore Girls” originals Milo Ventimiglia, David SutcliffeJared PadaleckiMatt Czuchry (Logan), Liza Weil, Sean Gunn, Keiko Agena, Yanic Truesdale, Danny Strong and Vanessa Marano will also be reprising their roles. »

'Gilmore Girls' Revival: Danny Strong, David Sutcliffe Returning as Doyle and Christopher

11 February 2016 1:40 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's been a flurry of "Gilmore Girls" activity in recent days, with confirmations that a bunch of original cast members will be back for the revival, including all three of Rory's (Alexis Bledel) former boyfriends. Now, two more memorable men are joining the fold.

First comes word from the Gilmore Guys podcast that Danny Strong will be reprising his role as Doyle, the neurotic editor-in-chief of the Yale Daily News and soulmate of Paris (Liza Weil). Strong has gone on to great success since he left "Gilmore," as the co-creator of "Empire" and the screenwriter of hit films including "The Butler." Weil previously confirmed her involvement in the revival, revealing that she'd star in two of the four 90-minute installments; we'd imagine that Paris and Doyle are probably married with several kids by now, and Strong will most likely appear alongside her in those two episodes.

Gilmore Girls Revival: Kelly Bishop Teases Widow Emily's 'Manic' State, Richard's Immense 'Presence'

1 February 2016 10:39 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Kelly Bishop‘s re-entry into Stars Hollow last Friday hit a snag.

At the inaugural table read for Netflix’s four-part Gilmore Girls revival, the East Coast-based actress — who was reciting her lines via speaker phone from her home in New Jersey, as she had done during much of the show’s original seven-year run — experienced some connectivity issues.

“Unfortunately, there was a time lag, like when you watch one of those reporters in Afghanistan,” she explains. “It had never happened before, and I’ve done a lot of remote table reads. So that certainly slowed down the process.”
