Twice a year the Lgbt community gathers alongside entertainment and corporate professionals at TrevorLIVE in order to raise both attention and funds for the Trevor Project, the leading national organization for Lgbt youth (under 24) that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services, including free and confidential lifeline and instant messaging services and in-school workshops.
Last night, TrevorLIVE New York was held at the Chelsea Piers, and the evening’s Master of Ceremonies was none other than celesbian superstar (and newly single lady) Jane Lynch.
“I am so thrilled to be hosting TrevorLIVE New York and proud to be part of such a worthwhile cause!,” Lynch said in a press statement. “The Trevor Project is a beacon of hope for so many through their tireless advocacy and outreach — it’s an honor to help bring attention to all that they do.”
While I’ve never had trouble identifying with the bulk of male roles across film and television, I cannot deny that I do delight in finding gems wherein the women get lines, and maybe even their own narrative. It’s no secret that women are grossly underrepresented in films and television, both onscreen and behind the scenes. Let’s face it, when it comes to women in the industry it’s hard to find films that simply pass the Bechedel Test alone. The Bechedel Test was invented in the mid-1980s by cartoonist Alison Bechedel to determine the representation of women and girls in Hollywood films. While the test does not judge how good or bad a film is, it has 3 basic criteria. The criteria are: 1) There must be more than one woman 2) The women must talk to each other 3) About something other than a man.
Since the test is pretty basic, »

"American Horror Story: Coven" has not yet started filming, but hints about the third season of FX's highly-anticipated series are already trickling out.
Sarah Paulson -- who had a minor role as a medium on Season 1 of the series and a major role in the second "Asylum" season as reporter-turned-patient Lana Winters -- recently told The Hollywood Reporter that fans should expect some big changes in "American Horror Story: Coven."
When asked how different her Season 3 character will be from Lana, Paulson told THR, "Definitely different. Basically, she's going to look different, and my relationship to Jessica Lange is going to be quite different this time. At the beginning of last season, no one knew that Lana would be the hero, so it's possible I could end up the evil one this year. As of right now, there will be some of Lana Winters' qualities in my character, but I don't know for sure. »

We’ve been busy following developments regarding FX’s all new scary season of their Ryan Murphy property, American Horror Story: Coven. One development isn’t so much about the show’s third run. Instead it focuses on a possible side-kick to the spooky drama. You see, Ryan Murphy has been in extensive talks with the network to do a companion series and today we can report that FX Networks CEO John Landgraf likes the idea.
No official decision has been made at this time, but things are looking good. “I’d love to do it,” Landgraf said of what would potentially be a talk show. “We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s »

During the PaleyFest panel for American Horror Story in March, Ryan Murphy revealed that he had been thinking about ideas for a potential companion series and it now looks like we could see something that will coincide with the release of American Horror Story: Coven. Here’s what FX Networks CEO John Landgraf had to say during a recent interview:
Via THR: “I’d love to do it,” Landgraf says of the potential talk show. “We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s a decent possibility we’re going to do something like that for Coven.” …The executive noted that the network has done a “fair amount of legwork” on the potential companion, adding »

After the incredible amount of batshit nuts insanity we were turned on to in "American Horror Story: Asylum," we cannot wait to see what the powers-that-be have cooked up for Season Three, which is known as "American Horror Story: Coven." We may just get more than we bargained for.
Following a March revelation from co-creator/co-showrunner Ryan Murphy that he was in talks with FX to potentially do a companion series, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf tells The Hollywood Reporter that there's a strong chance the plan will come to fruition.
"I'd love to do it," Landgraf says of the potential talk show. "We're thinking about it. If we do it, I don't think we'll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven't made a final decision, but I think there's a decent possibility we're going to do something like that for 'Coven. »

FX's third season of its hit horror series is ramping up. Production on 'American Horror Story: Coven' is well underway over in New Orleans and the next season has scored another new cast member to join its gang of returning players. 'Scream 4' star Emma Roberts (below) has signed on to play a new character named Madison who is being described as 'a self-involved party girl'. The role is particularly handy for Roberts as she is currently dating 'American Horror Story' actor Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass') so trailer tonsil tennis will be a welcome distraction for the young pair. Kathy Bates ('Misery'), Gabourey Sidibe ('Precious'), Angela Bassett ('Olympus Has Fallen') and Patti Lupone also join in with the returning cast members that include Peters, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson and Frances Conroy. »

Emma Roberts is the new name to add to ever expanding cast of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Coven. The FX show will return in the fall, and I expect we haven’t even begun the casting updates on this puppy.
The cast now includes Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, Gabourey Sidibe and Lily Rabe. »

We are big fans of the trend by directors and showrunners to report their casting news on Twitter, and American Horror Story: Coven‘s showrunner Ryan Murphy is definitely a proponent. He recently took to the Twitterverse to make a particularly wonderful double casting announcement:
— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) May 12, 2013
TVLine has followed up that announcement with the news that Emma Roberts is close to sealing the deal on her inclusion in the growing cast as well, and that she will be taking on the role of Madison, a self-involved party girl.
No further word on the roles or their duration or, for that matter, what’s in store for us with the new iteration of American Horror Story, but we’re planning on Coven being just as freaky as the first and second seasons. »

Emma Roberts, who most recently starred in Fox pilot Delirium, is nearing a deal to join American Horror Story: Coven, our sister site TVLine reports. Roberts (Scream 4) will play a self-involved party girl named Madison. She’ll join previously announced Oscar winner Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe for Season 3. »

TV Line is reporting that Roberts is nearing a deal to join the drama, which will take place at least partially in New Orleans and focus on witches -- at least, that's what fans are inferring based off of the title for the season. There aren't a lot of actual details just yet.
If she signs on, Roberts will join a hot list of stars who are appearing in "Coven," including her real-life boyfriend Evan Peters.
Which actors do you think might be the witches and which ones might be the witches' targets? »
Much like the first two seasons of American Horror Story, creator Ryan Murphy only gives out show details in tiny little morsels, so we don't have any info on who Roberts will play. But let's play the logic game. Traditional witch covens consist of 12 women, right? We already have confirmation that Ahs alums Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga will be in season three, and other announced actresses are Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe. With Roberts, that makes 10 females for season three. So is it safe to assume we will see at least two more major female roles announced? Probably more, because everyone on the show can't be a witch. »

Another impressive name has been added to the casting sheet for American Horror Story: Coven.
Emma Roberts - whose Fox pilot Delirium was not ordered to series, much to the dismay of many fans - is close to signing on for the FX smash, according to TV Line. Assuming the deal goes through, Roberts will play a party animal named Madison.
American Horror Story Season 3 is expected to premiere in October. It will be set in modern day New Orleans and focus on witchcraft, with Jessica Lange once again in the lead role and Kathy Bates set to portray her character's nemesis.

Scream 4‘s Emma Roberts is the latest addition to the cast of American Horror Story: Coven. While character information has been mostly kept a secret, TVLine learned that she’ll be playing Madison, “a self-involved party girl.”
We recently reported that Precious star Gabourey Sidibe will be joining the cast, along with Kathy Bates, who will be a major part of the third season. Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone are also new additions, but we have no details on who they’ll be playing at this time. A number of actors from past seasons will return to play new characters, including Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Evan Peters. The cast is still coming together, so we’re definitely expecting a few more of the past actors to make an appearance.
Filming of American Horror Story: Coven will take place in New Orleans and multiple unannounced locations. »

Roberts, who recently filmed a Fox pilot titled "Dellirium," is currently dating "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters. Peters will return for "Coven" alongside familiar "Ahs" faces Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga.
Though we don't know much about "American Horror Story: Coven," we do know it'll be witch centric, as the title indicates, and parts of the season will be set in New Orleans.
