20 October 2017 1:56 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Andrew Rannells joined the “Will & Grace” fray this week to make out with Will (Eric McCormack) and sing some catchy tunes as a so-called “conversion therapist.” The 39-year-old actor told TheWrap that it was a thrill to be part of a show he has loved since college, and that the revived sitcom hasn’t skipped a beat, including its willingness to take on topical issues. Rannells and fellow guest star Jane Lynch appeared on Thursday night’s episode as newlyweds who run the gay-conversion camp that Jack’s (Sean Hayes) grandson attends. “They definitely tackle that head on, for sure, »

Will & Grace Recap: Eventual Gramps

Are you ready to feel old? Jack wasn’t, either, in Thursday’s Will & Grace. But he didn’t have a lot of choice in the matter when a moppet came knocking at his Will’s door asking if he had a son named Elliot. Yes, Jack replied. But “like my friend Will and his hair, we had a falling-out years ago.” Turned out, the moppet in question was Elliot’s son, Skip — Jack’s (gasp!) grandson! “Can I call you Grandpa?” he asked Jack. “Oh my God, you have to,” Will answered giddily.

‘Big Mouth’ Cast and Creators on How the Very Adult Netflix Show Can Really Help Kids

3 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Being 13 is difficult. It can be a scary, emotional, lonely time in a young person’s life. Depending on when you grew up, being 13 meant different things: Most millennials have the cringeworthy evidence of braces and Aeropostale fits in an overflowing Facebook album from 2009. Others didn’t have social media’s living reminders, like “Big Mouth” star Andrew Rannells.

“I would’ve made so many stupid videos and taken so many stupid pictures,” he said to IndieWire.

But no matter how private or public your adolescence was, the creators of “Big Mouth” want viewers to know that we’ve all been there — yes, every one of us. To the girls who first got their period on a class trip, you are not alone. To the kids going through trials with acne, bacne, and buttne, you are not alone. Everyone gets curb-stomped by puberty, and “Big Mouth” wants to help.

‘Curb Your Enthusiam’ Gang Celebrates Long-Awaited Return at New York Premiere

28 September 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Curb Your Enthusiasm” gang was ready to party on Wednesday night as they gathered in New York for the show’s ninth season premiere.

HBO chief Richard Plepler noted that the show’s return (after a six-year hiatus) makes it the longest-running scripted series on HBO, chronologically and by the number of seasons. He called series star Larry David “the William Butler Yeats of comedy” for the exacting work he puts in to make the show look so easy.

The crowd agreed that David is back in rare form, mining gold out of the idiosyncratic stuff of everyday life. As he greeted a receiving-line of well-wishers at the after-party, one party-goer waiting patiently for a handshake confided in his date: “He hates this. I just know he hates this.”

To hear the cast members tell it, season nine of “Curb” won’t be the last. They’re having too much fun after the long absence.
