There is no rest for the weary, recently kidnapped Gladiator, ABC’s Scandal assured us this Thursday night.
Related2015 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Cancelled?
In the first episode since she was rescued from Iranian clutches by onetime Opa member Stephen, Olivia — right after fibbing to a touchy-feely Jake that she was heading off to bed — got pulled into an increasingly intense, volatile situation.
Brandon Parker, a 17-year-old African-American, was shot dead by a cop after being suspected of shoplifting and allegedly reaching for a knife when confronted. The Dcpd called in Olivia to manage the optics of the situation, »
We might need to get Olivia Pope on a new case.
As we all know and are eagerly awaiting, Girls star and known Gladiator Lena Dunham will join Kerry Washington on an upcoming episode of Scandal. This is very exciting news. We love Lena Dunham, and we love Scandal. We just have one question:
What's up with that wig?
Dunham is gorgeous, but the straight-haired, heavily-banged auburn head-topper looks a little... awkward.
It's got to be part of the episode how strange it looks.... right?
Right, Kerry Washington?
... Right, Lena Dunham?
Can someone please explain this to us?
Alright. We'll try not to wig out about it.
I put a picture of Trevor Douglas with my Wednesday night "American Idol" recap, because I figured that even with a bad performance last week, he was still likely to advance. I was wrong. American made some interesting choices when it came to the Boys but will voters have better or more predictable judgment when it comes to the Girls? Click through, follow along, comment below and let's find out! 8:01 p.m. Et. Ryan Seacrest is Really keeping things casual for these Detroit shows, eh? 8:02 p.m. Same deal as last night: Eight girls will be called to perform. The other four? Eliminated. Up first? Singer: Tyanna Jones Song: "Rockin' Robin" My Take: Easy call, America. But at least you got it right. With her infectious smile, infectious voice and infectious blue tinted hair, Tyanna is... ummm... infectious. This performance is just about having fun and, as a result, »

"I'm not a yeller," she says. "I know factually how to give you your best workout." (Obviously yes, she’s still intimidating.)
I jumped at the chance to spend an hour in Anderson's (very hot) Brentwood, Calif., studio, learning the moves from the master herself.
Watch: Secrets From Hollywood's Post-Baby Fitness Guru
Joining Anderson at Wednesday night’s #BeatsHourofPower event was Girls showrunner Jenni Konner, who has been a devotee of the program for four years now. The pair engaged in a brief pre-workout Q&A session, centered mostly on the importance of a solid workout playlist. "I believe whole-heartedly that we are all programmed to move to music," Anderson said. "The closer you are to the music, the more empowered you become."
But there were many lessons to be learned from Anderson's »
Yes, you read that correctly: Dan Bucatinsky, whose fan-favorite character James was killed off on Season 3, is returning for a guest spot.
No, James is not coming back from the dead, but Bucatinsky is set to return for one episode through a series of flashbacks, Variety has confirmed. Bucatinsky’s episode will center around his widower Cyrus (Jeff Perry).
Ex vice prez Sally Langston (Kate Burton) will also appear in the episode.
As for Lena Dunham, the “Girls” star and self-proclaimed “Scandal” super-fan will make her Tgit debut on the March 19 episode, which sees Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) handle a woman she learns is planning to expose the sex secrets of Washington D.C.’s most elite. »

Desiree Akhavan’s hip debut about New York twentysomethings is sexually candid and exhilarating, if slightly precious
Like Lena Dunham, debut film-maker Desiree Akhavan has showcased herself in web comedy and now in an impressively or oppressively hip indie movie about twentysomethings in New York. She also has a role in Dunham’s HBO TV comedy Girls. Appropriate Behaviour has an indulgent, slightly precious autobiographical feel – but it is funny, risky and in exhilaratingly bad taste.
Akhavan plays a version of herself, Shirin, the daughter of well-to-do Iranian expatriates who left after the 1979 revolution. She now lives in Brooklyn, teaching film to five-year-olds, of all the wackily improbable things. Having dated men, she is now in a tempestuous relationship with the severe, sexily bespectacled Maxine (Rebecca Henderson) and unsure how or if to come out to her parents as gay, or bisexual. As in Girls, there are references to Sex and the City »

Lena Dunham posted a behind-the-scenes shot of her buzzy guest appearance on ABC's political drama, and you'll barely recognize the Girls star in an auburn wig and Olivia Pope-style tweed jacket.

Talk about a fake follicle debacle! Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO's Girls, makes her Scandal debut in the March 19 outing, titled "It's Good to be Kink," and let's just say her wig may just steal the entire episode. How do we know this? Because Dunham posted a photo of her with star Kerry Washington from the set, which reveals her new "Kinky Sue" look. Yes, her character's name really is Kinky Sue. (Praise, Shonda Rhimes!) "Finally at liberty to reveal this pic of me and on the #scandalset as 'Kinky Sue' with my true [heart] @kerrywashington," she captioned the cute pic.

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.
“You have to put yourself in the mindset of the late-‘90s, where this sort of thing was not done on television,” Sex and the City creator Darren Star tells ETonline of the HBO comedy that first premiered in 1998 and would eventually run six seasons, spawn two films, and make Carrie Bradshaw a household name.
The show’s frankness and humor about sex was both iconic and revolutionary. Yet, in the first season, hardly anyone watched the adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall).
That means not many people »

The first No. 1 single is a celebrated milestone for any artist, but for Frankie Ballard, the second one is even sweeter.
"It's so exciting to have your first No. 1 song and you're like, 'Wow,' I just can't believe this is actually happening,' [but] there's a little voice in the back of your head that's like, 'What if this is the only time I'm ever going to get to experience this?'"
After opening for acts like Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum, Ballard broke out on country radio with "Helluva Life" in 2014. The song became his first bona fide hit single and went all the way to No. 1 on the country charts. When "Sunshine & Whiskey" followed suit months later, Ballard breathed a huge sigh of relief.
"I'm not a one hit wonder! God!" he exclaims in ETonline's Behind the Hit, playfully burying »

It's handled! Lena Dunham will be the envy of Gladiators around the world when she guest stars on an upcoming episode of Scandal, and now you can see photos of the Girls creator in action with Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington). In the March 19 episode "It's Good to Be Kink," "Olivia springs into action when she hears of a woman intending to expose sex secrets of some of D.C.’s most elite," ABC reveals.

After what seems like years of La-bashing, Lena Dunham may be trading in her New York hustle-and-bustle for a little bit of that City of Angels lifestyle. Rumors have been floating around that the Girls creator is about to close on an almost-$3-million-dollar house in Hollywood, which is a major change from her current digs in Brooklyn. The star isn't commenting on why she's making the switch, but it would make sense that she's finding herself in Tinseltown more and more these days. Either that or she found that a New York City without Beyoncé and Jay Z is not a New York City worth living in. Regardless, Dunham's legions of fans are no doubt sitting on pins and needles wondering »
According to a new scoop from Entertainment Weekly, Zachary Quinto is the latest in a line of fresh meat set to join NBC’s Hannibal. The serial killer drama will return to our screens for its third season this summer, with Quinto set to play a patient of Bedelia’s (Gillian Anderson).
Since his small screen splash in Heroes, Quinto’s stock has risen, leading him to a number of TV roles. His recent stint on Girls was followed by a larger role on The Slap. However, his most celebrated performance was as American Horror Story‘s crazed psychopath, Bloody Face. While we don’t know the specifics of his role on Hannibal, if there’s any chance he might be retreading crazy territory… we’re in.
Alas, on the basis of EW’s brief report we estimate that for his upcoming TV appearance, Quinto will be on the other side of a fatal scuffle. »

NBC’s Hannibal has landed itself a major guest star for its upcoming third season, and this actor is very familiar with playing a serial killer, since he did so himself on not just NBC’s Heroes but also FX’s American Horror Story. Zachary Quinto has signed on to guest star in Hannibal Season 3. As first reported by EW.com, Quinto “will appear in at least one episode of the third season as a patient of Bedelia’s (Gillian Anderson).” No other specific details about his character have been revealed. Quinto has had roles on many different series, from 24 to, as previously mentioned, American Horror Story to, most recently, Girls. While he currently stars in NBC’s The Slap, the actor is probably best known for playing Spock in the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek films and for his role as Sylar on the NBC superhero drama Heroes, a »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 18: ‘Everyone Has A Cobblepot’
Written by Megan Mostyn-Brown
Directed by Bill Eagles
Aired Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox
This week’s episode of Gotham follows up “Red Hood” just after Alfred’s wounding, which brings a reunion between Gordon and Bruce. But instead of progressing Bruce’s story, this episode prolongs their separation again for another week so that Gordon can make some genuine headway in establishing some order within the Gcpd. This has been an ongoing process for Gordon in making a change to the corrupt system, and his effect on it has been gradual, as every time Gordon thinks he has made a significant achievement, he finds that he has only cured a symptom and not the cause. This has been a beat that Gotham has repeated a few times during this second half of the season, and it’s almost to the point of being overly repetitive, »

If you've ever seen Girls, you've probably noticed Lena Dunham's Eloise tattoo on the small of her back. She's long been inspired by the children's story of a young girl living in the Plaza Hotel, and a couple years ago, Dunham got to meet the books' illustrator, Hilary Knight, after a friend of Knight's told him about her tattoo. That meeting — and their later friendship — inspired Dunham to executive-produce a documentary on his life called It's Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise that premiered at Sundance and will air on HBO March 23. Here's the charming first trailer. »
