Long before he scored his big break as one of the original Not Ready for Primetime Players on “Saturday Night Live,” Garrett Morris, a New Orleans native, was treading the boards in New York. He racked up mentions in Variety throughout the ’60s, but his first was for the recording of a musical called “The Bible Salesman.” Now, at 78, he’s a regular on CBS’ “2 Broke Girls.”
What do you remember about “The Bible Salesman”?
It was the first official Off Broadway show I did with Rosetta (LeNoire) way back when. A very talented composer by the name of Jay Thompson had written this piece, and it was marvelous to work with Rosetta, a great lady and great performer. At a certain time, she was the only black lady on Broadway.

Here come the brides… and the grooms!
Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana's (Naya Rivera) wedding was the most highly anticipated TV wedding of the year, and at the last minute, Glee decided to up the romance ante with a surprising twist. (But of course, all you devoted Gleeks have known about this double wedding for months, haven't you?)
Just moments before the big "I do," Brittany unveiled that her wedding day wish was to see Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) get married alongside her and Santana.

PhotosGlee First Look: Has Sue Sylvester Finally Been Defeated?
Thanks to a little 11th-hour persuasion, courtesy of Sue Sylvester and the brides, Kurt and Blaine agreed to do what “at least 52 percent of [America] will legally tolerate” and make it a double wedding. And despite the gang’s pre-wedding jitters — most of which came from Brittany, who insisted that she wear a spider on her dress for good luck — the ceremony went off without a hitch.

Glee continues its somewhat schizophrenic-in-quality final season with a bit of a valley this week, especially when considering the past few peaks the show hit with “The Hurt Locker” two-parter. “What The World Needs Now” was admirable in its laser-focus in on a few dropped-by-the-wayside relationships (Santana/Brittany and Rachel/Sam), but it had none of the infectious silliness – courtesy of Jane Lynch, with not a single scene in the entire hour – of the last few episodes of the season.
And you kind of know from the get-go what kind of episode you’re going to get when Sam and Rachel break off into a duet of “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again” before the opening credits. The episode is jam-packed (and, perhaps, overstuffed) with songs all written by composer Burt Bacharach, and though there’s some awesome 60’s throwback moments (the eponymous song provides fuel for the episode »

After nearly six season of shimmies, shakes and sweet lady kisses, it's time to say congratulations to the Glee cast for their 700th song, and to Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) on their engagement.
"We're singing for Santana and Brittany, giving them a little love," Lea Michele says of the show's landmark musical number, "What the World Needs Now," by Burt Bacharach. "At the same time [we're] inviting ourselves to their wedding," Becca Tobin adds.

This is a show that, similar to Disney’s Wreck It Ralph, asks the question, “What do video game characters do outside of the video game?” Unlike the film however, this series focuses on an average family of video game characters known as the Smashenburns. The family is made up of father Rip, a Grand Prix race car driver from an unspecified racing game, mother Raquel, a Lara Croft type from an artifact scavenging adventure game, daughter Alice, who is an activist that sometimes goes boy-crazy, son Billy, who is trend-obsessed with becoming a rapper, and lastly Turbo, their talking purple »

We’ve know for a while now that Pam Anderson was coming to Glee in its final season, but we still didn’t know who would be playing Pam, who is actually just the character of Blaine’s mother (not the real-life Pamela Anderson). However, now, thanks to some spolier-filled set photos posted on Instagram last month, it has been confirmed that Gina Gershon, whose TV credits include the TV movie House of Versace, along with Elementary, Community and Wilfred, will be filling the role of the former Warblers’ mom. Furthermore, in addition to having Gershon as Blaine’s mother, photos from the actress’ Instagram account also reveal that Blaine’s mom will be interacting with both Santana’s mother, Maribel (played by returning guest star Gloria Estefan) and Brittany’s parents, who will be played by Community‘s Ken Jeong and Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde, American Pie).
