We Never Stopped Believing — How 'Glee' Finally Got Its Groove Back!

30 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Six years ago, I said 'I do' to Glee.

Since watching the first revolutionary episode, I've stayed loyal to the Fox comedy. For better ("Don't Stop Believin'"), and for worse ("Run Joey Run"). For richer (That gigantic Bushwick loft) and for poorer (Sam's hotel-room home). Through sickness, (Burt's cancer scare) and in heath, (Quinn's magical paralysis recovery), until the series finale parts us.

Like all true TV marriages, I stuck by the series when things got tough — aka nearly all of seasons four and five — because once upon a hallway, I fell in love with a group of high school misfits who all just so happened to have miraculous musical abilities.

There's no denying that Glee is riddled with ridiculous inconsistencies (Where the heck did Sugar Motta go?), or that we wanted to strangle some characters with our own hands (Looking at you, Brody), and that some storylines were excruciatingly frustrating (That fake school shooting. Wtf?).

Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: John Carpenter’s Lost Themes, Stand-Alone Star Wars Movie, Scream Queens TV Series

27 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re back with another horror/sci-fi news round-up. This time around, we focus on John Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record release, the hiring of a new writer for one of the stand-alone Star Wars films, and an unpredictable new cast addition for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens TV series.

It followed Laurie Strode as she was hunted by Michael Myers, rode with Christine as the flaming 1958 Plymouth Fury mercilessly pursued Buddy Repperton down a dark stretch of asphalt, and accompanied Jack Burton and his pals on their rescue mission in Lo Pan’s lair. John Carpenter’s music could be listed as a cast member in his films, as they are like another character, superbly complimenting the dialogue and actions of the main players.

The nine tracks on Carpenter’s upcoming Lost Themes record, however, don’t come from iconic films, but they will likely have listeners watching »

Nick Jonas Will Also Be in Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens

26 January 2015 8:36 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Professional power-stance proponent Nick Jonas is taking his talents to Fox's college-set horror-comedy Scream Queens, according to THR. He'll play a recurring role that has virtually no other details available yet. (And maybe that's best, because for the next few weeks we can guess his role: frat-boy sports king, pop-music student who wants to make straightforward music videos, Marquis de Sade–obsessed English major-cum-sociopath, "Bio Student No. 3," etc.) He joins Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ariana Grande, all of whom are also onboard for Ryan Murphy's next 15-episode anthology. The series' first season, slated for fall, will focus on a university campus rattled by a string of murders, so there's lots of room for Jonas to do potentially horrible or heroic things. (Maybe both?) »

Nick Jonas is serious about his acting career and it is shaping up to be a nice one. The former Jonas Brother member is the latest star to join Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens. Fox confirmed that Nick will have a re-occurring role in the horror based show that follows a campus. No word on what his role will be or any details on his character at this moment. Nick has remained busy with his solo music and own show, Kingdom. Scream Queens will air this fall with a first season of 15 episodes.

We are excited to Nick on the show. Hopefully it will be a different type of role for him and give him some diversity in terms of his acting resume. But it will be also fun to see how they will fit him in for a horror based show. Nick is usually shown in a drama or a comedy, »
