Bones already has plans for a major crossover in Season 11, and now it’s lined up a major guest star for this fall as well.

With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist, which will lead to some serious competition with Emily Deschanel’s Brennan.” White’s past TV credits include CommunityThe Client List, 30 Rock, Boston Legal, and, obviously, The Golden Girls, on which she played Rose Nylund.

8 July 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Something wonderful happened on Twitter today. Ryan Reynolds posted a new image of Deadpool to the social network earlier, in the run up to the movie’s appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, quoting the first line from The Golden Girls theme song, an obsession of the Merc with a Mouth (especially Bea Arthur) as all fans of the Marvel Comics character know. and that could have been that. Instead, Reynolds co-stars, including T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, and Gina Carano, followed up the tweet by tweeting the rest of the song themselves, creating a moment of Internet magic in an instant. Hey #Sdcc, Thank you for being a friend... pic.twitter.com/Kl52TtOPio — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) July 8, 2015 Travel down the road and back again.... #Sdcc #Deadpool https://t.co/nQVy47vLFt — Gina Carano (@ginacarano) July 8, 2015 . @ginacarano @VancityReynolds @deadpoolmovie "Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant…" pic.twitter. »

Jenny Lewis's "She's Not Me" Video Is the Ultimate Gift to Troop Beverly Hills Fans

27 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After months of teasing on her Instagram feed, Jenny Lewis finally premiered the music video for her song "She's Not Me" on Wednesday. The nostalgia-inducing clip pays homage to the singer's child-star past and features funny reenactments of her role on The Golden Girls, as well as in the movies Hellville, The Wizard, and of course, Troop Beverly Hills (if you're a fan of the 1989 comedy, you'll get a big kick out of Vanessa Bayer as Phyllis Nefler and watching Jenny do "The Freddie"). It also has hilarious cameos from Fred Armisen, Leo Fitzpatrick, Feist, and Girls star Zosia Mamet. About the video, Jenny told BuzzFeed, "It's a super meta retrospective on my career." Watch it below now. »

Fred Armisen, Zosia Mamet, Vanessa Bayer Re-create Golden Girls for Jenny Lewis

27 May 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A lot of former child stars like to run away from their pasts, but not Jenny Lewis! Way back in the day (like, before Rilo Kiley), Lewis appeared in The Golden Girls, Troop Beverly Hills, The Wizard, Pleasantville, and so many other goodies. And because Jenny has both zero shame and a lot of famous friends (see: her last video), she's parodying some of those famous roles in her latest video for the brilliant "She's Not Me." Yep, that's Fred Armisen as Sophia freakin' Petrillo and Vanessa Bayer as Phyllis Nefler. Zosia Mamet, Leo Fitzpatrick, and Feist (!) are in there, too. Is this the best music video of 2015 so far? You're damn right it is. »

Betty White better be careful! The Golden Girls actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday, and as soon as she took her seat, the late-night host noticed she had a shiner. "What's going on with your eye?" Jimmy Kimmel asked. The 93-year-old actress replied, "Oh, well, the makeup lady had a little problem with me and she hit me." Wait, what?! "It was so unexpected!

White agreed, saying, "No, I don't think so!" So, why how did White really get a black eye? »

10 April 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Ryan Reynolds was shown mourning the comic book death of Wade Wilson on the Vancouver set of Deadpool earlier this week, new photos have arrived, which give us our first look at the actor (or his stunt double) brandishing his dual katana blades. The actor even reached out to a fan on his Twitter page, who asked if he had named his swords. Take a look at the actor's response below, revealing he named the katanas Bea and Arthur, after The Golden Girls star Bea Arthur.

"The Katanas are named Bea and Arthur. Bea is a dedicated performer and a joy to work with. Arthur's grumpy-wumpy."

Production is currently taking place on Vancouver's Georgia Viaduct, which is shutting down traffic on one side of the highway for two weeks. After the first set photos emerged, many fans assumed that this was a scene from the test footage that leaked last summer. »
