Exclusive: CAA has signed actor Taylor Kitsch. Here’s the guy who – after playing one of the great recent TV characters in fullback Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights and then a small but showy role as Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine – seemed like he was going to be the next big leading man. That was before he suffered a hellacious summer when the two big movies he starred in, John Carter and Battleship, both flopped. But Kitsch has put himself back on the track with a good showing in the Oliver Stone-directed Savages and most recently playing the Medal of Honor-winning Long Island-bred Navy Seal Michael Murphy in the Peter Berg-directed Lone Survivor. Kitsch was last repped by Wme but has been agent-less this year until now. He continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment, and he next stars in the ensemble of HBO’s adaptation »

Ryan Murphy has been predictably cryptic about his plans for the next season of American Horror Story, but he has given us some hints. To sum it up, the next season will take place in 1950 and will either be filmed in New Orleans (again) or Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jessica Lange will be back (probably for her final season) and she might be playing a German woman. Based on that information, we've come up with some probable ideas about the next season. Without further ado, we give you theories. Source: FX Theory 1: It's about the Stamm kidnapping. Murphy has stated that the next season is a period piece and to look at what happened in 1950 historically. If they do end up filming in Santa Fe, one possibility is that it will be about a bizarre kidnapping that took place there that year. An obstetrician kidnapped a wealthy family's 9-year-old »

Lea Michele is ready to take her victory lap.
After years on Glee, Michele’s debut album Louder dropped this week. The actress/singer spoke with Good Morning America Wednesday about her professional triumph — and her recently turbulent personal life. (Michele’s onscreen and offscreen boyfriend Cory Monteith passed away in July.)
George Stephanopoulos didn’t waste any time, asking right off the bat how Michele’s been doing over the past few months. ”I’m really very, very, very thankful for all the amazing people I have in my life,” the 27-year-old replied. “I know that sounds like something everyone says, »

Just how far would you go to attain physical perfection? What would you be willing to do to hold onto that beauty once it’s within your grasp? How much would a compromise like that cost: financially, morally, and physically? Being beautiful isn’t easy and there are so many factors that you need to take into consideration: the mass murder, the resurrections, the cannibalism, the head-hoarding, the upkeep of an immortal body steadily declining into rot and, of course, locating somebody tight-lipped enough who’ll supply you with fetal-flavored dumplings as a starter.
The intention of this column is to cast a net over some ladies in the horror genre whose evil grooming techniques resulted in flawless skin, great hair, a high-body count and their own inevitable annihilation.
A word of advice: don’t try any of these beauty regime at home, kids.

American Horror Story’s fourth installment is set to premiere in fall 2014, but the theme and final casting for the miniseries' fourth effort remain unknown.
American Horror Story Spoilers
Ryan Murphy, when pressed to reveal plot details for season four, offers hints but nothing more. For certain, all that’s known is that the season will take place in the 1950s and will be filmed in either New Orleans or Sante Fe. Also, contrary to a popular rumor that was circulating its way around the web, the season will not focus on the goings on of a circus – though that admittedly would have provided for some creepy story arcs.
“If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece,” Murphy told E! News earlier this year, when he squashed the circus rumor. “We try and do the opposite »

The star-packed project based on Larry Kramer’s Tony Award-winning play of the same name tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, “taking an unflinching look at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.” The cast includes Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons and Julia Roberts.

HBO Films has set a release date for its star-studded feature "The Normal Heart," starring Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts. The adaptation of Larry Kramer's Tony Award-winning play will premiere May 25 at 9 pm Et on HBO. Kramer adapted his own play for the screen -- fitting considering the autobiographical nature of the piece -- and Ryan Murphy ("Glee," "American Horror Story") served as director. The play focuses on Ned Weeks (played by Ruffalo in the film), the founder of an HIV advocacy group, and his partner Felix Turner (Matt Bomer), who isn't as eager to join in Weeks' in-your-face campaign. Kitsch plays the president of Weeks' organization while Julia Roberts takes on the role of Emma Brookner, a wheelchair-bound polio survivor. The film also stars Jim Parsons, Alfred Molina, and Denis O'Hare. Keep checking Indiewire for more updates on this anticipated release.

Last night, I attended the premiere event for A&E's dark new detective show, Those Who Kill starring Chloe Sevigny. We talked about her role in the gritty drama, but let's be honest: ever since her jaw-dropping role in American Horror Story: Asylum (in which she played a nymphomaniac who is subjected to brutal experiments) I have wanted to know if she will return to the series. So I asked her point-blank.
"I'm not sure," she tells me. "[American Horror Story creator] Ryan Murphy teased me, 'Oh, now you're doing this show, you can't do ours.' I guess it depends if we get a second season of [Those Who Kill], and what happens with that. I love American Horror Story, and I love this show, so I hope I can do both."
Ryan Murphy couldn't have been more vague himself.

"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has announced that next season -- the series' sixth -- will be the last for the show. Unfortunately, that news comes not a moment too soon. Even diehard fans have tired of the weak storylines, and the death of star Cory Monteith last year created a hole in the series that simply can't be healed. Poor "Glee" -- but the Fox show shouldn't feel lonely. There are plenty of shows that started out strong but faded due to age, cranky stars, unfortunate plot twists or shaky writing. Here is our round-up of the shows we one loved but really want to dump. We stopped at ten -- but you shouldn't have to (bring it in the comments!). »

Gratitude and grace echoed throughout the McKinley High auditorium set as “Glee” troupers feted the show’s 100th episode Monday with a champagne toast and cake cutting ceremony.
The gathering on the Paramount lot brought together current and past cast members to celebrate the groundbreaking Fox/20th Century Fox TV series that has become “home” for adolescent outcasts— misunderstood jocks, theater geeks and math nerds—aching for a place to belong.
“I was so excited because it was a show for kids like me,” recalled Chris Colfer, who plays rosey- cheeked Kurt Hummel, of his gut reaction to reading the pilot script. “It was the first time that I had seen something for performance arts kids, for theater kids, and I was so excited for the world to have it.”
The 100th episode airs March 18, while the show returns from its winter hiatus on Tuesday. Star Lea Michele marveled at the show’s milestone moment. »
