It's been almost a year since Younger, TV Land's original scripted series, first fell on our radar. The show is now well into its second season, and not only does it give us scores of hilarious one-liners to work into our everyday lives, but it also gives us plenty of eye candy. One such specimen is that of regulation hottie Nico Tortorella, who plays the boyfriend of Liza (Sutton Foster). To help drive home just how gorgeous the star is, we've taken the liberty of collecting some of his sexiest pictures. Grab a fan and read on, then keep the steam rising with your unofficial hot guy calendar of 2016. »

Time is a real bitch. Between interviews and standard blogging and technical difficulties and Globes and Film Bitch Awards and a cold, your host has had a difficult couple of weeks that he definitely didn't plan well enough for. But this rought start to 2016 shall not deter him. Please stick with us and cheerlead in the comments and we'll make 2016 the best year yet at The Film Experience even though these past 10 days or so have not gone half as planned. (Note to self for 2016: You can't cover everything... the link list is your friend. Also please win the lottery so you can hire a full time staff of 5? 10?)
Here's some reading elsewhere while we continue to update Oscar charts, try to collect ourselves (still trying to decide how to approach the #OscarsSoWhite issue which is getting such shoddy or agenda-filled or misleading coverage elsewhere). And maybe eating lunch »

Nico Tortorella plays a tattoo artist on Younger, and he's all inked up in real life, too. "I'm always getting new tattoos," he told People on Tuesday night at the Younger and Teachers premiere party at the NoMad Hotel in New York City. "I probably need to stop at some point." His latest? On his arm, a mother lion picking up her cub in honor of his mom, who proudly walked the red carpet as her son's date at the TV Land bash. And then there's the slightly naughtier addition - "right above my junk," as he put it, laughing »

“Season 2 is more confident,” says Foster, who plays the 40-year-old aspiring publisher Liza who’s posing as a 20-something to help her career. “I know I feel more just confident in this character. It’s more marinated, the writing is even better than Season 1. I joke it’s bolder, sexy, wiser. It’s ballsier. A lot more ‘oh my god’ moments.”
Created by “Sex and the City” and “Beverly Hills, 90210” mastermind Darren Star, “Younger” has helped TV Land in its mission to reach more millennials with fresher programming, which is ironic, given Foster’s fake-millennial character Liza — who comes across even more hurdles in the new episodes, now that her much younger boyfriend Josh (Nico Tortorella) is in on her secret.
“It definitely makes it more complicated, »

TV Land pulled out all the stops for the New York launch party celebrating both the return of its hit series “Younger” and premiere of newcomer “Teachers” — completely taking over the bulk of the NoMad Hotel, including the NoMad Bar, the Library and the Parlour.
“I wanted to open up stories more to the ensemble,” said Star. “I think ‘Sex and the City’ is a good analogy: I felt like at the beginning, it was more about Carrie, and then you got to find out more about the other characters. And we have such an amazing cast on this show, that we wanted to tell stories about some of the other characters more as well. Of course Liza is front and center,” he added.
The show’s premise revolves around Foster’s character, »

Like her character, Sutton Foster's career took an exciting turn with a second chapter when Younger came along. A Broadway breakout in her 20s, Foster is now the leading lady on TV Land's adorable, under-the-radar critical darling, which begins its second season Wednesday and is already greenlit for a third. "In a career choice of being a performer and an entertainer where there's no real job security and it's hard to look ahead at what's next, it's really cool to know that we have this next season and to know that the network is really behind us and really believes in the show, »

Take a look @ Season Two of "Younger", the TV Land comedy-drama series based on the novels by author Pamela Redmond Satran, starring Hilary Duff, Sutton Foster, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor and Nico Tortorella, created and produced by Darren Star ("Sex and The City"):
"...'Liza Miller' (Sutton Foster) is 40 years old and a recently divorced mother. As her daughter 'Caitlin' (Tessa Albertson) begins college, her husband 'David' (Paul Fitzgerald) leaves her for a younger woman.
"Subsequently struggling without David's financial support, she attempts to get a job in publishing, which proves difficult for a woman of her age. During her hunt, she meets 'Josh' (Tortorella), a 26-year-old man who guesses he and Liza are about the same age.
"His compliment sparks an idea in Liza: she decides to get a makeover, courtesy of her best friend 'Maggie' (Mazar), in order to pass herself off as 26 years old.
"Ultimately, she becomes »

The new, somewhat improved TV Land brings back a comedy that was one of 2015’s pleasant surprises, “Younger,” and introduces another that scores high marks for audacious humor, “Teachers,” featuring improv group the Katydids. Combined, they certainly represent a step up in class for a network once most frequently associated with “Andy Griffith Show” reruns. Yet in a sign of how quickly things can change, the new show exhibits the greater promise, while Darren Star’s series, although still fun and watchable, already feels as if repetition is causing it to not age particularly well.
Actually, even an admirer of “Younger’s” first season could see trouble ahead, inasmuch as the story felt very much like the kind of romantic comedy that’s neatly resolved after 90 minutes or so. Instead, season 2 finds Liza (Sutton Foster) seeking to perpetuate her masquerade as a twentysomething assistant at a New York publisher, when »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
In season 1, Younger only got better as it went along. The fusion between creator Darren Star’s bubbly vision of New York, Sutton Foster’s implacable charisma, and some mouth-covering gags only built and built the longer protagonist Liza (Foster) kept up the charade of being a 26-year-old publishing assistant (her real identity: a 40-year-old divorcée). The show’s glitzy charm is still readily available for fans planning to tune in to the second season premiere this month and, better yet, Star doesn’t rest on his laurels the second time around.
The show immediately ups the ante by bringing home Liza’s daughter Caitlin (Tessa Albertson) from her time abroad in India. She packs herself into Maggie’s (Debi Mazar) aggressively rustic Brooklyn loft, and there’s some fun tension between Liza’s internal battle of divulging every secret to her daughter »
