I am happy for Lauren, as I have been a fan of her work in everything that I have ever seen her in. She can play many roles and it will be interesting to see how she bodes with Matthew. I am sure we can expect some amazing things from this show, especially with the amazing cast that they have lined up so far. They »

“Parenthood” actress Lauren Graham has been cast as a guest star in CBS's upcoming reboot of the Neil Simon classic “The Odd Couple.” Graham, whose NBC series is preparing to wrap up with a sixth and final season, has been cast as Gaby, the ex-wife of Perry's sloppy sportswriter Oscar.

The actress, whose NBC drama is in the midst of its final, 13-episode season, has landed a guest-starring role on CBS’ upcoming reboot of The Odd Couple, where she’ll play the ex-wife of Matthew Perry’s Oscar, TVLine has confirmed.
Despite the fact that the union between Oscar and Graham’s character, Gaby, was a stormy, the couple will nevertheless exhibit warm chemistry as divorcées.
In a bit of meta casting, Graham will be playing Perry’s character Oscar Madison’s ex-wife in the modern retelling of Neil Simon’s 1965 play, reported Entertainment Weekly. As the story goes, Oscar and Gaby go through a rough divorce, but find a deep friendship and affection for one another following the end of their marriage. After the divorce, the laidback Oscar moves in with the ever-uptight Felix Unger, who will be played by Thomas Lennon (Night at the Museum, Reno 911!).
Graham and Perry, who dated after meeting in 2002, have previously worked together on Perry’s other sitcom efforts Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Graham, who is best known for playing single mom Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, currently stars on Parenthood, »
It is getting only weirder for former Community star, Yvette Nicole Brown. She announced her departure due to family reasons, but she now has been promoted as regular cast member of The Odd Couple reboot. Yes, this comes as a surprise as it appears to go against her reasoning for leaving the independent production of Community. The Odd Couple reboot will actually be on CBS, making perhaps a more attractive deal for Yvette in terms of pay. Here was her explaining the shocking move and why it does not take away from her ill father.
(The Odd Couple is) a better fit for the life I have now. My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.

Might Scorpion’s Happy want to consider a name change?
On tonight’s episode of the freshman CBS drama (9/8c), it seems Paige has struck a nerve in the tough tech whiz, and TVLine has an exclusive sneak peek at Happy’s sour mood.
In the clip above, expert behaviorist Toby explains to Paige the many anxieties, disorders and syndromes from which the Scorpion team suffers — which partially explains why Happy’s going to town with a hammer.

“Are you there, God? It’s me, Alicia.”
Ok, nobody said that on this week’s installment of The Good Wife. But maybe, just maybe, a higher power whispered in the ear of our atheist protagonist Alicia Florrick and convinced her to rethink her stance against declaring her candidacy for State’s Attorney against that rat bastard fink James Castro. Then again, maybe it was just a combination of Good Angel (Gloria Steinem) and Bad Angel (Eli Gold) reminding Saint Alicia that it is, in fact, a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.
Whatever the case, Alicia’s last-act »
“Here’s a guy who’s got his own thing going, and he’s completely supportive and unintimidated by his wife being in a position of power,” Daly tells TVLine. “I think the fact that he’s unintimidated by a woman in power is a great message for men: Guys, it’s Ok. Your girlfriend or your wife can be big, and you can still be confident. »
Yvette Nicole Brown has been promoted to series regular on CBS’ ‘The Odd Couple” remake, a network representative told TheWrap. The upgrade comes just days after the actress departed NBC-turned-Yahoo's “Community” so she could give her sick father daily care.

The actress — whose departure from Community was announced on Tuesday — has been upgraded to a full-fledged series regular on CBS’ upcoming reboot, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Brown joined The Odd Couple in August as the assistant to Matthew Perry’s Oscar, but the gig was initially a recurring one. With her Community exit a done deal, she was free to commit to Odd Couple full-time.
Does Netflix have Eric Cartman’s Awesome-o working in their studios? You remember; he was the lovable robot who could invent Adam Sandler movies out of thin air, like “Adam Sandler falls in love with a Golden Retriever” or “Adam Sandler is stranded on an island and falls in love with a coconut.” If so, that robot has led them to sign a deal with Sandler’s Happy Madison productions to produce and distribute four films, all of which Sandler will star in and produce. Additionally, Netflix will bankroll each of the films, the budget of which on previous Sandler films have averaged roughly $80 million (though where that money goes in the budget is anyone’s guess). This comes days after news that Netflix’s first feature would be the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel.
Sandler commented typically tastefully in a statement via THR, saying, “When these fine people came »

"My dad needs daily care and he needs me," Brown told TVGuide. "The idea of being away sixteen hours a day for five months, I couldn't do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad."
Harmon and McKenna released a joint statement on the matter, announcing that "Yvette was an integral part of Community and is irreplaceable. We are sad to see her go and wish her the very best."

When cancelled NBC sitcom Community was picked up by Yahoo! Screen in a rather remarkable eleventh-hour resuscitation, loyal fans of the beloved series likely breathed a deep sigh of relief and assumed that, finally, everything was going to be okay for the Greendale gang. Sadly, that’s not the case today, as series regular Yvette Nicole Brown has confirmed that she will not be reprising the role of Shirley Bennett in Community‘s upcoming sixth season.
Brown, who has been with Community since the start, opted to depart the show in order to care for her ailing father. Speaking with TV Guide, which broke news of the exit, she said:
“My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad. »

It’s become a tradition with Community; the happy is paired with the sad. Last season, fans were gifted with the shocking return of series creator and seasons 1-3 showrunner Dan Harmon before they found out that Donald Glover would leave the show after a handful of episodes. Without Glover’s Troy Barnes, the show soldiered on with the help of new and returning cast additions like Jonathan Banks and John Oliver, but the loss was felt on the screen with the absence of the comedic force that was the Troy and Abed team-up.
This season, which might qualify as an actual miracle, exists because Yahoo Screen came in at the 11th hour to save the cancelled sitcom and check off half ...

Community is about to get a lot less "nice" in season six. Yvette Nicole Brown, who has played loving mother Shirley for five seasons on the NBC critically-loved comedy, will not be returning for season six on Yahoo Screen, E! News has confirmed. Brown asked Sony to be released from her contract for personal reasons, and Sony Pictures TV and executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna have honored her request. This will make her the third Community vet not returning for the new season in addition to Donald Glover and Chevy Chase. So why did Brown ask to be released from her contract? Because she's a great daughter. "My dad needs daily care and he »
A sixth season of Community is coming soon, but unfortunately it will be without Shirley. Sony TV confirmed on Monday that Yvette Nicole Brown is leaving the community college-set comedy, which was canceled by NBC in the spring and is being revived by Yahoo.

Shirley Bennett will not be enrolling for another semester at Greendale Community College. TV Guide reports that the sixth-and-likely-final season of Dan Harmon's "Community," set to hit Yahoo! Screen in 2015, will have to do so without Yvette Nicole Brown. According to the outlet, Brown was granted a release from her contract so that she might look after her ailing father. »
