Do Not Disturb (2008)
At the time of this writing, despite passing the Senate 89-8 with a bill no one is happy with, it looks like House Republicans are willing to drive the world economy off a cliff rather than allow a vote on the bill the Senate and the White House agreed to. At this point I'm almost willing to let China repossess the country just to end this farce. Edit: They passed it, barely.
While a $2,000/year tax hike might hurt my spending, even the bigger bump that's proposed for the wealthy elite isn't likely to hamper their lifestyles. So which
Song for Marion Paul Andrew Williams, UK Closing Night Film
A feel-good, heart-warming story about how music can inspire you. Song for Marion stars Terence Stamp as Arthur, a grumpy pensioner who can’t understand why his wife Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) would want to embarrass herself singing silly songs with her unconventional local choir. But choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton
Seriously, the woman is being wasted. Not that it wasn't swell to have her voicing Donna's kid-ditching sister Janet on The Cleveland Show last night, but that was just a guest spot and the real-life Nash is too fabulously animated to be relegated to cartoonery. She needs to be front and center, in the flesh and on TV on a weekly basis. And preferably in something better than Do Not Disturb.
One would think after her run on Dancing with the Stars and Reno 911! that someone would have found Miss Niecy a proper vehicle by now. She's paid her dues and proven to be a fan favorite, so why ...

The closest I'll get to cuddling up to the hunk of my high school years.
New Kid on the Block Jonathan Knight looks exhausted. And I know how he feels. This summer I had an owl move into the oak tree outside my bedroom, and he was more reliable than a rooster for a 5:30 Am wakeup call. So I wish him good luck with chasing him down, because if he’s like mine, or the one at the top of the page, maybe he should just move.
Hope you all had a great Saturday! I have an owl to chase from a tree then off to bed!

Q: When it comes to positive portrayals of gay characters on TV, I've seen coming out stories, displays of affection, and lots of sweaty workout scenes, but I don't think I've ever seen the love and loyalty that is portrayed between Cam and Mitchell on Modern Family. Do you agree that the "gas station scene" – where Cam, as Fizbo the Clown, mightily defends Mitchell against a jerk – qualifies as one of the most natural, and therefore important, portrayals of gay (or straight) love we've seen on TV?
The day's other pilot casting news includes additions to The CW's "Nikita," Judy Greer joining Fox's "Tax Man," Jerry O'Connell doing his second pilot this season and Jason Biggs seeking "True Love" at CBS.
Smits will star in an untitled legal drama from writer John Eisendrath ("Alias," "My Own Worst Enemy") as a Supreme Court justice who makes the unusual move of leaving the bench to return to private practice, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The multiple Emmy nominee (and one-time winner, for "L.A. Law") last starred in the third season of "Dexter"; his TV credits also include "NYPD Blue" and "Cane."
Russell hasn't done regular TV series work since "Felicity" ended in 2002, but that could change soon.
Gay celebrities used to mostly follow one of two formulas for coming out:
1. Get caught in an personal situation by a tabloid, i.e. Danny Pintauro
2. Get tired of not being out and call up favorite lifestyle magazine to break the news gently to their three fans who hadn’t already succumbed to the rumors. i.e. Ellen DeGeneres, Lance Bass
But something new happened in 2009, because the path to a celebrity's closet door became as varied as it is for those of us in the real world. We had the “I was always out” or the “casual mention” coming out. Then we added the “bring the boyfriend to an event” coming out which took the nonchalant route. And perhaps then there is most interesting: the “product tie-in” which, as far as I know,
Last week, Movieline caught up with Ferguson to discuss his brush with Adam Lambert, the truth behind that Julie Bowen-Sofia Vergara
O'Connell will co-star in the NBC dramedy pilot "Rex Is Not Your Lawyer," swapping out for "Heroes" star Sendhil Ramamurthy who was originally cast in the role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Ramamurthy had a scheduling conflict with "Heroes," and since "Rex" was in second position, it needed to find a replacement. O'Connell recently wrapped the horror movie "Piranha 3-D." He also starred in the short-lived Fox series "Do Not Disturb" and other Freshman Flops.
In "Rex," former "Doctor Who" star David Tennant will play top Chicago litigator Rex Alexander whose panic attacks lead him to cope by coaching clients to represent themselves. O'Connell steps in as Rex's friend and fellow lawyer who happens to fall in love with Rex's fiancee (Abigail Spencer).
Also cast are Lindsay Kraft as Rex's assistant/waitress-singer-songwriter and Cleo King as one of Rex's clients, a bus
On "Scrubs," which is shifting its setting to a medical school next season, Franco will play Cole, a charming, conservative, confidently stupid and incredibly entitled medical student whose family donated a wing to the school. With his arrogance and erroneous medical decisions he becomes an enormous irritant to Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley).
Franco's TV series credits include "Privileged," "Do Not Disturb" and "Greek."
Last year we had cause to tune into ABC Family's utterly wackadoodle family dramedy The Secret Life of the American Teenager when lead teen Amy (Shailene Woodley) considered giving her unborn baby to her dad's gay co-worker Donovan (Alex Boling) and his hubby Leon (Larry Sullivan).
It looks like next season we'll have even more reason to watch, as the show has just cast the magically delicious Brando Eaton (Do Not Disturb, Nip/Tuck, Queerantine!) to play Griffin, the new gay sidekick to Amy's gorgeous and rather badass little sister, Ashley (India Eisley).
Okay, I'll admit that I have a hard time watching this show because the main family's last name happens to be Juergens (same spelling and everything), and I'm really not used to hearing my name spoken by the likes of Molly Ringwald, John Schneider and Bobby Bacala from The Sopranos (who plays
We wrote a while back that actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson (The Class, Do Not Disturb) had been cast as half of a gay couple in the pilot for ABC's single-camera comedy An American Family.
Now we've learned who will be playing the hubby who will be holding his hand as the two new dads adjust to adopting a new baby.
Eric Stonestreet has been cast as Ferguson's hubby, and from what I can tell he will be playing Cameron to Ferguson's Mitchell. The bulk of their story (they're one of three families being followed by a documentary crew) is about how their life changes when they adopt a Vietnamese baby named Lily, but Cameron's apparent weight concerns and Mitchell's issues with his family are also continuing themes.
Anyone recognize Stonestreet from CSI?

Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd's docu-style single-camera comedy Family, from 20th TV, revolves around three families: one comprised of a working dad, stay-at-home mom and two kids; another that includes a 60-year-old man who becomes a stepfather after marrying a Latina who is 30 years his junior; and the third, a gay couple who have just adopted a Vietnamese baby. Ferguson will play one of the gay dads.
It's a fresh idea, and with the pedigree of Levitan and Lloyd behind it (who have helped helm such classics as Frasier, The Golden Girls, and The Larry Sanders Show), it could turn out to be something special.
Of course, those
"Off Duty," from Universal Media Studios and Upright Citizens Brigade's Jason Mantzoukas, centers on a once-legendary police detective (Bradley Whitford) on his way down who complicates the life of his new partner (Romany Malco) -- a straight shooter on his way up -- both on duty and off.
Sommerville will play Malco's wife. Also cast in the pilot is Capethia Jenkins as the crusty police district chief.
Sommerville, who recently starred on ABC's "Cashmere Mafia," will next be seen in the feature "The Ugly Truth." She is repped by Icm and McKeon-Myones Management.
