The final Jim's Notebook for 2012 has a little bit for everyone, from Switched at Birth Season 2 bringing some great drama in January to Jimmy Kimmel talking about going head-to-head with Letterman and Leno in a few weeks.
Switched At Birth We know that in the Switched at Birth fall finale, Angelo (Gilles Marini) won a huge amount of money in his court settlement, and what will he do with it? Spend it! In a press call earlier this week, Lucas Grabeel, who plays Toby, revealed what comes of all that cash - and you can rest assured that it looks like the money will be all gone in the near future.
“To thank the family for all of the hospitality that they have shown him, »

Christmas comes early for fans of Seth Green this year: On Sunday, Robot Chicken’s Atm Christmas Special premieres (Adult Swim, midnight Et), and on Monday, he reunites with his Buffy the Vampire Slayer costar Alyson Hannigan on How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8 p.m. Et).
Entertainment Weekly: This is your first time acting opposite Alyson on-screen since Buffy.
Seth Green: Since then, yes. But Aly and I have worked together since we were teenagers. I think she was 11 or 12, and I was like 13 when we met. We did a movie called My Stepmother is an Alien , and »

Switched at Birth revolves around two families who discover that two daughters have been switched as infants and have been living in the wrong households. The large cast of this ABC Family series includes Vanessa Marano, Daphne Vasquez, Lea Thompson, D. W. Moffett, Lucas Grabeel, Constance Marie, Ivonne Coll, Sean Berdy, and Marlee Matlin.
The TV series debuted in June 2011 to a very healthy 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.3 million total viewers. The numbers declined but they were apparently strong enough for ABC Family to add a whopping 22 episodes to the first season order, bringing the total to 32 installments.
The 22 episodes that have aired to date have averaged a 0.9 demo rating with 2.25 million total »
"High School Musical" (2006): The Disney Channel movie exploded into a phenomenon. Just the "HSM" backpack invasion made its tween fans look like an army. The breakthrough roles for Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, who became an item, had them auditioning against the bizarre brother/sister act of Sharpay and Ryan (Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel). Of course the good kids win. Two of the songs, "We're All in This Together" and "Stick to the Status Quo," could have been the theme songs for the actors who then found themselves in the sequels.
"Footloose" (1984): Kevin Bacon was 24 when he tapped into his inner teen to play Ren McCormack, 17. Ren moves from Chicago to a small town where rock music and dancing are forbidden. But he needs them, and so do the other kids - especially before prom. Worth watching just for the warehouse scene, where Ren pops a cassette into »

TV show description:
This dramatic TV series tells the story of two teenage girls who discover that they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. As a result, they are raised in very different environments than what they would have been.
An artistic teenager, Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother. Privileged and eccentric, she's lived a charmed life with the family she thought was her own. She was raised by her stay-at-home mom Kathryn (Lea Thompson) and former professional baseball player father John (D. »
So, guess who just peed on Zac Efron?
Okay, so that's probably not a question you ever thought someone would ask. But if reading that was a surprise, imagine how the audience at the Cannes Film Festival felt last night during the premiere of "The Paperboy" when they actually got to see Nicole Kidman relieve herself all over the heartthrob.
C'mon, Nicole, "Charlie St. Cloud" might have been a disappointment, but that seems like an overreaction.
We jest because, well, what else are you going to do with a scene like this? Or perhaps a more pressing question is, Wtf? Well, here's the answer: In the scene in question, Efron has just been stung by a school of jellyfish and Kidman rushes to save him. And then ... well, read Vulture's description of the scene at your own peril:

No, I’m not pulling a belated April Fool’s Day prank on you — there’s really a movie called “I Kissed a Vampire”, and the director’s name is Chris Nolan. Don’t believe me? Check out his IMDb page. I promise I’m not messing with you. The film is a self-proclaimed “rock musical,”, one that happens to be based on a television program I’ve never seen. Since this thing wasn’t crafted for anyone over the age of seven, I guess it’s a good thing I’m ignorant of the franchise. Here’s a needlessly verbose synopsis: Haunted by bizarre dreams about goth rocker Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley), with a growing lust for blood, Dylan (Lucas Grabeel) is not your average teenager-he’s transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it’s a process »

The Wildcats of East High School are now seniors and with graduation fast approaching they have to make some serious decisions about their future.
High School Musical 3: Senior Year was a success story before even gracing cinema screens. Whereas most film franchises start off strong before slowly sliding into straight-to-dvd mediocrity, this Disney produced series of films initially started as two made-for-tv movies. The overwhelming success of High School Musical ensured a much deserved sequel, High School Musical 2, and although this sequel couldn't quite live up to the original it turned enough of a profit for the powers that be to grant High School Musical 3: Senior Year a theatrical release. With a much bigger budget, the Wildcats of East High School are back for one last hurrah. »
It's been months and months since we last provided an update on the rock musical I Kissed a Vampire, but word came today that the film has a brand new trailer and is being released at the end of this month. Read on for the details.
In the vein of High School Musical, a desperate teen tries to save himself and the girl he loves after discovering he's transforming into a vampire. Haunted by bizarre dreams about Goth rocker Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley) and experiencing a growing lust for blood, Dylan (Lucas Grabeel), a not-so-average teenager, finds himself transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it's a process he is desperate to stop - but how? His demented dentist can't do anything about Dylan's aching teeth and emerging fangs, and the anti-bloodsucking pills he gets from his para-psychologist just give him a rash. »

High School Musical 2, 2007.
Directed by Kenny Ortega.
It’s summer vacation for the Wildcats at East High School, but with the pressures of summer jobs weighing down on them will they be able to work it out?
I'll be the first to admit that I unexpectedly thoroughly enjoyed High School Musical, and so I was cautiously optimistic for High School Musical 2. One of the main appeals of the original was the American high school setting, and although it's a squeaky-clean depiction I'm still fascinated by it. This sequel quickly moves the action away from school after the opening song 'What Time Is It' where the returning characters all celebrate summer vacation arriving. In order to keep everyone together singing and dancing for the movie, they all acquire jobs at the country club Lava Springs - »
"Switched at Birth" threw fans for a major loop when Emmett (Sean Berdy) slept with Simone (Maiara Walsh) this season. Sure, things between him and Bay (Vanessa Marano) were beyond rocky, but we were still shocked to see Emmett's bad-boy side emerge this way -- not to mention, he kind of threw his friendship with Toby (Lucas Grabeel) to the wolves.
This week, we spoke with Katie Leclerc to get all the scoop on how this latest shake-up will effect her character -- Emmett's Bff Daphne -- in tonight's big spring finale. It's time for the "switchters" to head to prom, but Daphne's big night with Wilke may be ruined by Emmett's secret. It's certainly not going to make the already high-anxiety prom night any easier for Wilke.
"Wilke has some added pressure in that at the moment, he's the only one who knows about Emmett and Simone," Leclerc tells us. »
