Praise be! Alexis Bledel is returning to The Handmaid's Tale for season two. The Gilmore Girls veteran appeared as a guest star in a handful of episodes of season one, but will serve as a series regular in the upcoming second season of the acclaimed Hulu drama…but how? Bledel's character, Emily/Ofglen, was last scene being taken away by the authoritarian police force after she stole a car and ran over a guard. This was after her character, who is involved with the Mayday Rebellion, was caught having a lesbian relationship and had her clitoris surgically removed by the regime. Dark stuff. No word on how her character will be reintroduced. Bledel, who is best known as Rory Gilmore, was one of the »

Acting can be a brutal business, as Milo Ventimiglia well knows.
So brutal, in fact, the beloved This Is Us star has been thisclose to walking away from Hollywood three separate times.
“I was just fed up,” the 39-year-old star tells People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview, while recalling the second time he almost left acting following a failed attempted at a Gilmore Girls spin-off and a couple of pilots that went nowhere. “I couldn’t catch a break to lock on to some work and be creative.”

“This Is Us” star Milo Ventimiglia got to answering some fan questions about the Netflix revival of “Gilmore Girls” and addressed maybe the biggest question of them all: Is Jess the father of Rory’s baby? “Jess absolutely loved Rory still — absolutely did. But it was also like the moment was passed. Or was it not? I don’t know. … I didn’t write the show, so I don’t really know,’ ” he said during an interview with Jess Cagle for People. “I just know that wanted me to look lovingly in the direction of Rory, played by »

Last November, Gilmore Girls diehards saw their favorite Stars Hollow residents reunite for the Netflix revival, A Year in the Life — but even those four episodes weren’t enough to satisfy fans who still have lingering questions about the lives of the beloved characters.

You would think that, having been interviewed approximately a bazillion times about Netflix’s glorious Gilmore Girls revival, A Year in the Life, Lauren Graham couldn’t possibly have anything left to say on the subject. But au contraire — she’s about as likely to find herself at a loss for words as our beloved motormouth Lorelai.

While the former looks to remain unresolved, at least for the immediate future, the actor promises some movement on the latter in the season premiere.
"[Creator Dan Fogelman] is going to give an answer, but it's going to beg a lot more questions," Ventimiglia told The Hollywood Reporter at the Atx Television Festival.

Eight years after she last found herself on the set of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mary Steenburgen is very happy about having had the chance to get back into the improvisational groove. She and real-life husband Ted Danson will once again feature in the ninth season of Larry David's misery-soaked comedy, and although time constraints affected how long she was able to stay on set, Steenburgen didn't let that curb her own enthusiasm.
“I’m not in it a lot because [the filming] overlapped with Last Man [On Earth], so I really wasn’t able to do very much,” she admitted to Gold Derby, before adding “it honestly felt like no time had passed and we started the next day. It felt exactly the same. I’m sure we all look a little bit older, but other than that, it’s exactly the same.”
You can watch the whole interview below...
Steenburgen has been very vocal in her delight at coming back to Curb - in an interview a few months ago, she revealed she'd been nagging David about it for quite some time.
“I’m so glad because it [has been] so long now that we really didn’t know if it was going to happen,” the actress told EW. “And we never got a straight answer out of him when we would ask him over the last couple years. And people asked us constantly, ‘When’s Curb coming back?’ That, and ‘When are you making Step Brothers 2?’ And then last summer, [Larry David] suddenly said, ‘I think we’re doing it,’ and he pitched the idea for our part of it.”
But Steenburgen wouldn't be convinced to open up about what's in store for her and Danson's characters, only teasing their appearances further.
"It will definitely cause people to ask me questions. We’re going to stir up a little bit of a hornet’s nest with it, I’m afraid, but it’s how he saw it and what he wanted to do. There are aspects of it that are a little challenging for me. And I think for Ted, too. But it will be interesting. It will be really interesting… It’s a great experience. It’s the same people, and it’s Larry’s completely unique, bizarre, wonderful voice.”
Curb Your Enthusiasm season 9 air date
It's been exactly a year since Curb Your Enthusiasm fans found out that a ninth season of the endlessly popular HBO comedy was coming their way, but we've heard precious little about it since. Back then, we'd have imagined new episodes would have arrived by now, but the cable network have been extremely quiet about when we can expect it to finally arrive on screens.
We'll bring you more on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm as we have it, including that elusive airdate.
Curb Your Enthusiasm season 9 guest stars
Lauren Graham, who already blew us away earlier in the year when the Netflix-revived Gilmore Girls landed, is set to give us another, entirely different jolt when we eventually see her working opposite Larry David.
The actress recently described her experience working on the show as "fantastic" to TVLine, before adding that "there really is no greater joy than actually making Larry David laugh. And he really laughs hard."
Although not keen to divulge too much about her appearances on Curb, Graham admitted that the woman she plays is "someone who has very colourful language" and she subsequently felt that landing this new role "was the perfect answer to ‘What do I do now?!’ because this character is completely not me at all. I speak in a way that I don’t speak ever."
And while the Bad Santa star is used to sticking to a very elaborate script over on Gilmore Girls, trying to adapt to a completely different way of doing things on the Curb set was a bit harder than she imagined.
"All you get is an outline and then you improvise around it," she explained, adding that co-star and Cheers legend Ted Danson "was like, 'This is cable. You can really [let loose]. Think of the craziest thing possible.' And my brain so doesn’t work that way." »
It’s no secret that Milo Ventimiglia is one of the biggest heartthrobs in Hollywood, but he’s also an incredibly private person — and he intends to keep it that way.
The This Is Us star recently sat down with People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview, and he revealed the real reason why he works so hard to keep his personal life under wraps.
“It isn’t easy, but I go back to the work,” says Ventimiglia, 39. “It would upset me if someone watching a show was thinking about me, »

There’s a horrifying sequence halfway through episode three of Hulu’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale featuring Alexis Bledel, fresh off Netflix’s revival of Gilmore Girls, in an unexpected supporting role as Ofglen. The actress plays one of the many women who are now servants stripped of any rights or autonomy and subjected to ritualized rape in the form of breeding ceremonies meant to stave off the infertility that’s plaguing a near-future society under the rule of a totalitarian and Christian fundamentalist government.
Ofglen, who audiences learn was previously named Emily, has just faced a tribunal where she and her former partner, one of the class of housekeepers known as Marthas, have been found guilty of “gender treachery.” Outfitted in a red prison jumpsuit, with her mouth muzzled and hands cuffed in front of her, Ofglen is put into the back of a transport van with her partner »
Milo Ventimiglia isn’t looking for validation. Not anymore.
“The older I’ve gotten, the less I’ve been interested in [chasing] the grand success of a young man, where you think you’re going to take over the world, you’re going to win awards, you’re going to be the biggest movie star,” Ventimiglia tells Et one balmy April afternoon on a secluded hotel balcony overlooking the Sunset Strip. “Those things fade into ‘I’m a working actor,’ and that is one of the most satisfying things in an industry that has no guarantees.”
Each moment he puts himself in front of the camera, he says, is one he won’t get back. So it had better count. “If I don't put my whole heart into it because I'm thinking about successes or what the next job is, I'm undercutting why I'm even there,” Ventimiglia says of a dramatic shift in perspective for the veteran actor, who »

Lauren Graham compares finding the perfect role to falling in love.
What she didn’t realize when she first secured the role of Lorelai Gilmore in “Gilmore Girls,” though, was how rare a connection like that was.
“Back then I probably thought, ‘Oh, I’ll probably have two or three of these that I feel this way about,'” she said in a conversation with Constance Zimmer during Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series. “Now I have a different perspective.”
Graham played Lorelai, a single mom with a teenage daughter, for all seven seasons of the show and again in the four-part Netflix miniseries revival “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” The two were just 16 years apart, fostering a relationship that better resembled best friends than that of a traditional mother and daughter.
At first, Graham said, peer groups questioned whether or not is was a good idea for Graham, in »
