Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Getting Celebrities to Sing Hamilton, and We Love It So Much

29 June 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Kevin Mazur Leave it to Lin-Manuel Miranda to turn Hollywood into a real-life musical. The former Hamilton star is currently spreading the love (and rhythm) by teaming up with Prizeo in honor of Immigration Heritage Month to benefit the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition. The star has asked his fans to donate $10 to the organization and record themselves singing any Hamilton track for a chance to win two tickets to the La opening night of the hit play, as well as airfare, accommodations, and a hang-out session with Lin-Manuel himself. The challenge quickly inspired some of Hollywood's biggest stars to get in on the fun (without actually taking home the final prize), and it has already become a viral craze. Everyone from Kelly Clarkson to Eva Longoria to the Harlem Globetrotters shared their videos, and we love it all so very much. RelatedHugh Jackman Brings »

Netflix acquires 'The Death And Life Of Marsha P. Johnson'

2 June 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Film will screen at Outfest Los Angeles this summer.

Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to The Death And Life Of Marsha P. Johnson, David France’s follow-up to How To Survive A Plague.

The film premiered at Tribeca and explores the murder of the transgender legend and ‘street queen’ of NYC’s gay ghetto, who played a pivotal role in the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and established with fellow icon Sylvia Rivera the world’s first trans-rights organization, Star, in 1970.

When Johnson’s body was found floating in the Hudson River in 1992, police refused to investigate the case and presumed Johnson committed suicide. Twenty-five years after her death, activist Victoria Cruz picks up the case.

Netflix plans a global launch later this year on The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, which is presented by Public Square Films. L.A. Teodosio produced and Joy A. Tomchin and Sara Ramirez served as executive producers.

Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to David France’s documentary “The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The documentary is a look at the 1992 murder of a transgender legend, known as “the Rosa Parks of the Lgbt movement.” The film is France’s follow-up to his Academy Award-nominated “How to Survive a Plague.”

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson” is presented by Public Square Films. L.A. Teodosio produced and Joy A. Tomchin and Sara Ramirez (“Grey’s Anatomy”) served as executive producers. The film will launch globally on Netflix later this year.

Marsha P. Johnson was found floating in the Hudson River in 1992 and the Nydp initially ruled Johnson’s death as a suicide. The film follows crime-victim advocate Victoria Cruz’s efforts to reexamine what happened and measure the challenges that still face the community.

Ellen Pompeo on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Longevity and Future: ‘Why Walk Away From a Hit?’

31 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Grey’s Anatomy” has seen many faces come and go, but could the series ever exist without Meredith Grey?

Lucky enough, that question won’t have to be answered for quite some time because star Ellen Pompeo, who has played the titular character since “Grey’s Anatomy” debuted in 2005, isn’t going anywhere just yet.

“Shonda [Rhimes] and I have both said that when I’m ready to stop, we’re going to stop the show,” Pompeo tells Variety, revealing that the series will not ever carry on without her character. “The story is about Meredith Grey’s journey and when I’m done, the show will end.”

With a laugh, she adds, “As far as how much longer I want to do the show, I’m mulling that over as we speak.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” has already been renewed for Season 14 for the 2017-2018 television season, and impressively ranks as ABC’s top-rated drama — quite the feat »

29 March 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As weird as it sounds, Grey’s Anatomy docs Arizona and Eliza may soon miss the bygone days when they had to keep their romance on the D.L. Now that their colleagues have begun to find out about the new couple, “they have to see what happens when they actually have a relationship — the sex and the commitment versus no commitment,” Jessica Capshaw, who plays Robbins, told TVLine earlier this month at PaleyFest. The question becomes, “What are they now?”

‘Buffy,’ ‘Community,’ ’30 Rock’ and More: TV’s 12 Best Musical Episodes and How Well They Worked in Song and Dance

27 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Musical TV shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” or “Glee” have a built-in understanding with audiences that bursting into a song or dance is part of the storytelling. When it comes to non-musical series, however, staging a musical number or episode can be a more challenging when it comes to finding an organic way to work it into the plot.

Recently, The CW’s superhero show “The Flash” and Syfy’s fantasy drama “The Magicians” dipped their toes into the world of musicals. “The Flash” tapped a character called Music Meister (Darren Criss) to knock out Kara and Barry (Melissa Benoit, Grant Gustin) and send them into an alternate reality, where they had to sing and dance their way to finding solutions. Music Meister, a super villain who could control people through music, has already been introduced in the DC Universe via animated series “Batman: The Brave and the Bold” (and voiced »

It turned out that Grey’s Anatomy didn’t just reunite Jackson with his long-lost father in “Who Is He (And What Is He to You)?” While in Montana with April to perform a throat transplant on a young patient, he not only confronted his dad (Eric Roberts — surprise!), he also hit the sheets with his former wife. Here, Sarah Drew, who plays Kepner, reflects on the ABC drama’s atypical handling of the hookup — and what it could mean going forward — and marvels at Roberts’ ability to play “kind of a jerk but not a jerk at the same time. »

Sara Ramirez, Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker Among Actors at Convention Celebrating Queer Women on TV

6 March 2017 6:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ClexaCon, a new convention celebrating Lgbtq women in entertainment, generated such interest among both fans and actors that “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramirez turned up in Las Vegas to attend the event, which was held over the weekend.

“Got 4 hours of sleep 2 b at last day of ClexaCon & so worth it! Loving it,” Ramirez tweeted Sunday. The actress, who played Dr. Callie Torres on “Grey’s Anatomy” and is, like the character, bisexual, stayed all day Sunday and sat in the audience for a series of lively panels, including conversations about the representation of queer women of color in the media and why authentic representation for Lgbtq women matters. The panel about depictions of queer women of color in the media spontaneously re-convened as the convention drew to a close, and Ramirez participated in that conversation, staying on as long as she could to talk with panelists and take photos with attendees.

‘Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon Joins ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ in a ‘Roguish’ Role

21 February 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Maybe Iwan Rheon will get his chance at the crown after all.

The Welsh actor, best known for playing the sadistic bastard Ramsay Bolton on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has been cast in “Marvel’s Inhumans” for ABC. He’ll play the ambitious, clever and charming Maximus, who covets his brother Black Bolt’s crown in Attilan.

Different from the Marvel’s universe’s mutants, the Inhumans are a race of superhumans who first developed unique powers in ancient times thanks to some genetic tinkering. They have a society of their own that has thrived in seclusion from the rest of humanity. Their culture follows a caste system and includes a Royal Family, of which Maximus and Black Bolt are members.

Quantico Recap: Two Become One

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Quantico recap.

By the end of this week’s Quantico, the final one featuring two timelines, we know this much is true:

The mastermind behind the terrorist attack at the G20 summit was Lydia.

Alex and Ryan are very much in an “off” phase of their on-again, off-again romance.

Harry likely is never going to get the justice he’s chased all season.

Owen definitely is one of the good guys. (At least, for now.)

The damage Lydia did is going to take a new team of FBI and CIA agents to handle… »

Sara Ramirez Is Not Happy About That Bisexual Joke on The Real O'Neals

17 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

On Thursday, Sara Ramirez expressed discontent and disappointment with ABC and The Real O'Neals. The source of the anger is an episode that aired on Jan. 17, in which main character Kenny O'Neal equates bisexuality to having "webbed toes" or "money problems." Not only did Ramirez play the inimitable (and bisexual) Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy for nearly a decade, but she also came out as bisexual herself during a powerful speech in Oct. 2016. Ramirez started her beef with the situation by first tweeting out a link to a petition that seeks to end biphobia and bi-erasure on the show. She then made the matter personal in the sentiments that followed. And as someone who worked 4 them 4 10 years+,am truly disheartened & disappointed quite frankly.I will invest my brand where I'm respected. https://t.co/NQQAPDsFlU - Sara Ramirez (@SaraRamirez) February 16, 2017 Dear @ABCNetwork @TheRealONeals :own it,address it,clarify it,empower »

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Alum Sara Ramirez Calls Out ABC to Fix the Biphobia Displayed on ‘The Real O’Neals’

17 February 2017 11:45 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramirez, who came out as bisexual last year, is now fighting to have her former network fix the attitude towards bisexuality displayed on the comedy “The Real O’Neals.”

On the ABC comedy’s Jan. 17 episode, openly gay character Kenny (Noah Galvin) lamented, “Oh, God. Here we go. Webbed toes? Money problems? Or worse… bisexual?”

Equating bisexuality with other problems was just the latest bi-phobic sentiment used for laughs on the show. A previous episode, titled “The Slutty Bisexual,” reinforced negative bisexual stereotypes when it had bi character Gloria (Jessica-Snow Wilson) sleep with someone else after getting tired waiting for a date.
