Matthew Perry will write, star as Oscar in 'Odd Couple' remake: So who's Felix?

13 December 2013 2:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Hey look, another TV remake! That's hardly news anymore, but the show being remade -- "The Odd Couple" -- and the star attached to it -- Matthew Perry -- make this one a little more intriguing.

Perry will star as Oscar Madison in the new version, which is in development at CBS. He's also co-writing the pilot script with comedy veteran Danny Jacobson ("Mad About You," "Two Guys and a Girl").

"Ever since seeing the movie 'The Odd Couple' when I was 10 years old, it has been a dream for me to play Oscar Madison," Perry tells Deadline. "To be given the opportunity to develop a modern version of it for CBS has put a permanent smile across my face."

Neil Simon's 1965 play about two divorced guys -- fastidious newsman Felix Ungar and slobbish sportswriter Oscar Madison -- who move in together has birthed a number of previous adaptations, »

‘Project Runway All Stars’ Recap: Another Shocking Twist Rocks The Show

14 November 2013 7:02 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

The designers channel their inner kid as they use school supplies for the unconventional challenge! Keep reading for our recap of ‘Project Runway All Stars.’

This week the designers take a big yellow school bus to P.S. 212, a fine arts elementary school in New York. They are greeted by Alyssa who presents them with the famous unconventional challenge! She urges the designers to embrace their playfulness by using materials found in a typical classroom. They get a backpack and four minutes to stuff as many things as they can in to the bag to take with them. After a chaotic four minutes of grabbing rulers, jump ropes, and other supplies, they take their sketches back to the workroom to begin on their designs.

“Arrow” Adds a “Vampire Diaries” Hunk, NBC Wants some Maya Rudolph Variety and “The Real World” Gets a Twist

14 November 2013 4:42 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Aisha Tyler has booked a guest-appearance on HBO’s upcoming human sexuality drama Open, according to TVLine. She’ll play a married nurse with a “modern outlook on matrimony”.

In frustrating but unsurprising news, Fxx has cancelled Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, as first reported by Defamer. At this point, that raises the question if Fxx can even support original programming. Established hits like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The League were able to survive a move, but instead of debuting Chozen, Fxx will air repurposed episodes of Da Ali G Show.

The combination of Guy Branum and Janine Brito will be missed.

Individually they were great, together they’re amazing.

Balancing out that loss to comedy and diversity slightly is the news that NBC is reviving Last Comic Standing with Wanda Sykes joining the show as a producer. I tend to like the talent search episodes of Last Comic Standing. »

36 Pics Of Birthday Boy Randy Harrison

1 November 2013 10:04 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

When Queer As Folk debuted, it was a huge step forward in gay representation on TV, and part of the success of the series was the performance of Randy Harrison as teenager Justin Taylor. Justin was the heart of the show, and began a love affair with the character Brian Kinney …who was the dick of the show (you can interpret that however you want).

After Qaf, Randy has worked steadily, mostly on stage, where he continues to shine. And look for him this year starring with Michael Urie in the indie film Such Good People.

This weekend is his 36th birthday, so let’s pay tribute with a gallery of Randy at his sunshine best.

24 October 2013 10:57 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Project Runway All Stars" kicks off its third season Thursday (Oct. 24) with new host Alyssa Milano, guest judge Debbie Harry, and a whole lot of scores needing to be settled.

"I have always been a huge 'Project Runway' fan," Milano tells Zap2it. "I watched since the very first season."

Milano, who has a licensed sports apparel line for women -- and is the daughter of a designer and granddaughter of a milliner -- says she loves being around the fashions from creation to execution.

The new "All Stars" season features designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman returning as judges, joined by newcomer Zanna Roberts Rassi of Marie Claire magazine. Guest judges include Kristin Chenoweth, Michael Urie and Nate Berkus

"The emotion is really raw on competition television and because there is always a clock ticking down. It [lends] itself to the drama," Milano says. "The fun of it »

Bryan Fischer bullies a teenager, Scott Lively takes credit for Russia, Eddie Izzard prepares to run for Mayor of London

Because I can’t find a decent way to display the series of photos, you’ll just have to go look at the perfect joy that is John Barrowman building an adult Big Wheel, then riding said Big Wheel. His life is so much more fun than mine.

Coming down from that high, the Family Research Council says that marriage equality threatens the wellbeing of countless families. The whole thing is worth a read, but I liked this passage best. “Consensual homosexual unions might cause no apparent distress to persons proximate to them, but they diminish an institution – marriage – without which, civilization will erode ever more quickly. And in case one hasn’t noticed, natural marriage in the United States is in enough trouble as it is.” Sounds like a personal problem to me. »

CAA Signs Zooey Deschanel

15 August 2013 12:21 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Zooey Deschanel is making a major representation change. The New Girl star has re-signed with CAA after a seven-month stint at UTA. Additionally, she has left long-time manager Sarah Jackson. For the time being, Deschanel is not taking in a new manager. “I worked with Zooey for over 17 years, and have the highest regard for her as an artist and a person,” Jackson said. “I’m very proud of the career she is currently enjoying and wish her the very best.” Jackson had been with Deschanel for her entire career to date, which has made the actress a TV star and indie darling and has earned her an Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations. Jackson’s Seven Summits continues to represent clients that include Homeland‘s Morena Baccarin, top-grossing comedian Russell Peters, Paula Malcomson, Tyler James Williams and Michael Urie.

Lifetime has ordered a second season of Devious Maids, which started slow but picked up viewers as it went along. I’m feeling mixed about this news. I’ve been enjoying Maids‘ first season (mostly) but I dont’ trust Marc Cherry to keep a serial going past a promising first season.

Christine Lahti and Tobias Segal light up in Petunia.

An offbeat family of New Yorkers, the Petunias, comes to terms with their own misgivings about life, relationships and the sheer unpredictability of love itself in the 2012 independent comedy-drama film Petunia.

The movie weaves together the lives of brothers Charlie (Tobias Segal, R.I.P.D.), Adrian (Jimmy Heck),  and Michael (Eddie Kaye Thomas, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas) as they unlearn everything their psychoanalyst parents have taught them.

Theater Reviews: Buyer and Cellar and Choir Boy

3 July 2013 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Buyer and Cellar (at the Barrow Street Theatre through October 13) Jonathan Tolins's multicharacter megalogue—starring the ticklishly talented,  ultracarbonated Michael Urie—imagines the life of an employee on Barbra Streisand's Wonka-like estate, slyly and hilariously corkscrewing a wacky story of gay icon-worship run amok with a treatise on the poignancy of our starfucking (sorry, "aspirational") economy. Alex (Urie) is an unemployed actor who interviews for a mystery job in Malibu: a nameless supercelebrity has built a freakin' mall in her basement—a private galleria with one customer. This eccentric wants an "employee" to staff it—to, in effect, sell her own stuff back to her, praising the wares and jacking up the price. When Alex discovers his loopy boss is none other than the Thrush of Brooklyn herself, he's hooked. (Also, his Vw is on its last legs, and this beats auditioning.) Latter-day Marie Antoinette peasant-play evolves into bosom friendship—and then, »
