While she may be better known for her superb funny-girl acting chops—cough, cough Bridesmaids or Gilmore Girls—Melissa McCarthy is also a pretty great fashion designer. How do we know this? Well, the actress shared the first images from her debut collection, Melissa McCarthy Seven7, with Vogue yesterday—and color us impressed! The line meets the everyday gal's needs, with a versatile range of pieces and sizes (ranging from 4 to 28) that all ring in at or under $150 (sadly, no bridesmaids dresses are in the collection…yet). "Some days I want to be prim and proper, and others I want to be in a band. I lost the ability to do that with clothes," McCarthy told »
Portrait of Jenny: Heigl’s Performance Buoys Social Issue Context
There are several aspects to admire in Mary Agnes Donoghue’s sophomore directorial effort, Jenny’s Wedding, her first foray into directing since the 1991 Melanie Griffith film, Paradise. It’s most improbable facets are actually its assets, namely a warm central performance from Katherine Heigl as a lesbian who comes out to her wanly conservative nuclear family by announcing her marriage. A film such as this one could’ve had the opportunity to make an indelible mark on the American indie landscape had it been released seven to ten years prior, when the United States was coming out from underneath the shadows of the Bush Regime and the Lgbt community was in dire need of positive cinematic depictions meant to inspire hope in the eventuality of equality from the likes of trending, A-list actors at their peak.

When last week's Emmy nominations came out, one of the day's big shocks was that "Empire" — Fox's blockbuster ratings success and popular favorite — was largely left out of the race. But when Indiewire talked with Danny Strong, the show's co-creator alongside Lee Daniels, his focus was much more on the musical soap opera/family drama's second season, which has been expanded to 18 episodes (from 12 in Season 1).

Sean Gunn will be familiar to many for his role as village eccentric Kirk in television series The Gilmore Girls. What some might not realise is that he is indeed the brother of James Gunn, the director of the fantastic Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gunn has been appearing in his brother’s projects for years, is featured in Super, and even turned up for an episode or two of reality competition Scream Queens on which James was a judge. He also starred as not one but two characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, the first was Kraglin, one of Yondu’s henchmen, the second was Rocket Raccoon.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Bradley Cooper played the part, but in actuality he only voiced the character and there were several other key members that bought »

Things are messy this week beginning with a misplaced opening flashback. Such techniques need employing with precision and purpose, to provide that all important point of reference. But what Scream: The TV Series does within five minutes is confuse rather than scare. A woman running across floodlit fields only to collide with some guy in a toga makes no sense, as there is no establishing timeframe. Instead this comes after the fact, making our journey into episode three disjointed. A feeling which carries on throughout.
Other contributing factors include a lack of continuity, as demonstrated initially by Willa Fitzgerald’s Emma. Someone who was in mortal peril at the close of episode two, yet appears emotionally unscathed after this ordeal. So good in fact, that we conveniently cut to some moody Emo music and a wake for victim number two the next day. »

Among the many reasons I regret having missed this year's Atx Festival — barbecue, the "Gilmore Girls" reunion, barbecue, getting to meet cool people who love TV, barbecue — the live reading of the "Dawson's Creek" pilot script was pretty high among them. Fortunately, the Atx organizers have been putting most of the festival up on YouTube, and last night they posted the largely gender-flipped "Dawson's" read, with Mae Whitman (accompanied by her framed Tim Riggins photo, because Austin) playing the title role.

Christopher Hayden, you’re a bad, bad dad.
Gilmore Girls vet David Sutcliffe plays really against type on Thursday night’s Rookie Blue as an abusive, overly controlling, super-strict father (to Orphan Black‘s Zoé De Grand Maison, aka Gracie!).
How horrible is he? “It’s not an appropriate shirt,” has never sounded so disturbing. And he makes his daughter sleep in a freezer in the garage when she’s “bad.” (Poor Gracie — from one crazy dad to another.)
