Body casts, a nod to Misery, hot physical therapists, unemployment, marital secrets, a puppet and friends hooking up?
Oh, yes, Happy Endings Season 3 kicks off in a new time slot tonight, 9/8c on ABC, as BFFs Brad, Jane, Alex, Dave, Penny and Max continue to forge their way through life in Chicago. Leaving us laughing the entire time, of course.
Tonight’s premiere picks up where the season finale left off and stars Elisha Cuthbert (Alex) and Zachary Knighton (Dave) told TV Fanatic at an on-set press junket in Los Angeles that they’re excited their characters are back together.
“No one’s actually seen us together like this,” said Cuthbert of Alex and Dave, who haven’t been back together in a romantic sense since the outset of the pilot. “We’re a real, real couple and we were just told off the start [by the producers] that it was going to »

With cinematic releases at the moment mostly involving the not-particularly inspiring likes of "That's My Boy" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," it's hard not to look to television for a little nourishment. The trouble is that the TV season has wrapped up for the year. While a few shows (namely "Girls") are still wrapping up, and others get underway shortly ("The Newsroom," "Breaking Bad," "Louie"), it's pretty quiet on the box, with cast and creatives focusing on making a hiatus movie, campaigning for Emmy, or just getting some sleep for once.
Still, with the 2011/2012 TV season done, we thought we'd shine a light on the small screen this week. Tomorrow, we're going to run down our ten favorite TV series of the last 12 months, but today, we wanted to pick a few stars of these shows that we think are set to break out as movie stars before too long, »

Tonight, TV Land is airing the 10th Anniversary TV Land Awards where Fox’s In Living Color is recognized with the Groundbreaking Award. But you wouldn’t know from it that Damon Wayans was a part of the iconic sketch comedy series. There were two members of In Living Color‘s core cast who were no-shows at the TV Land Awards ceremony, which took place on April 14 in New York: Jamie Foxx and Damon Wayans. Foxx couldn’t attend because he has been in New Orleans filming Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, in which he plays the title role. The absence of Wayans, who told organizers he was unavailable, was more puzzling. Wayans, who is credited as co-creator of In Living Color with his brother Keenen Ivory Wayans, was a key In Living Color writer-performer, who played some of the show’s most memorable characters.

Happy Endings is one of the kookiest sleeper hit sitcoms in recent years. The Chicago-set series is both wacky and unpretentious, and that combination helps the friendships between its six ensemble characters (played by Casey Wilson, Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Damon Wayans Jr., Zachary Knighton, and Adam Pally) seem real. It's hard not to dig everyone involved.
I got to catch up with five of the six thespians this week -- only Adam Pally wasn't there -- and I asked about the show's greatest assets: its fun characters, its frantic pace, and its daring weirdness.
One of my favorite things about Happy Endings is that the show never tries to establish each of you as a separate type. No one is "the quirky one." You all get to be insane and similar, but with sly differences, like real friends. That said: What do you think distinguishes your character?
Tonight, James Wolk (Lone Star) begins his three-episode arc on ABC’s Happy Endings as the former, then current boyfriend of Adam Pally’s Max. The exes have an unexpected reunion in this evening’s Valentine’s Day episode when Max picks up a couple in his limo and one of the passengers is Grant (Wolk), who Max broke up with last Valentine’s Day because he wasn’t ready for a serious relationship. “The character was pitched to me like, ‘Grant’s perfect, right? Unlike Max, he wears perfect vest-tie combos, he always says the right thing, everyone embraces him. »

We've just said goodbye to an exciting 2011, and now it's time to look forward to the next 12 months! With another year comes a handful of hot actors whose stars are on the rise. There are some up-and-comers we're particularly excited to follow. Max Irons and Damon Wayans Jr. learned the tricks of the trade from their famous fathers Jeremy and Damon, while Chris Pratt starred opposite another famous dad, Brad Pitt, in Moneyball. Michael Fassbender received critical acclaim for his recent work, and nude scenes, in Shame, and Henry Cavill is sure to captivate audiences with his acting chops and six-pack in Man of Steel. British imports Dominic Cooper and Sam Claflin are noteworthy leading men, while Canadian Suits star Patrick Adams just picked up a SAG nomination for his small screen role. So, tell us - which guy do you want to see more of this year? Which Hot »
