And like that heralded revival, he once again got raves from most outlets. Also receiving raves this week was Wicked star Idina Menzel, who dazzles in If/Then, the new tuner by the Next to Normal team of Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt. And though the young fans who adore her voice in Frozen may, »

Last year, you might remember Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff stopping the show with Smash’s “Let Me Be Your Star.” This year was no different, but we’ll get to that. First, Janney.
“I believe that any actor worth their salt has to have done theater,” says Janney, whose history with the stage stretches far back »

Krysta Rodriguez ("Smash"), who was to play the best friend of the main character (Greta Gerwig), is leaving the pilot. Deadline reports the character, a successful and hard-partying woman, is going through some changes following a table read of the pilot script. As a result, the show will look for a different actress to play her.
Emily Spivey ("Up All Night") and "Himym" creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas wrote the "How I Met Your Dad" script. It's a spiritual companion to/not-quite-spinoff of "How I Met Your Mother," featuring an older version of Gerwig's character telling her kids the story that led her to their father.

CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spin-off is making a last-minute cast change.
Rodriguez was cast as the sexy, flamboyant fashion blogger best friend of Greta Gerwig’s lead Mother character. After a table read, producers decided Rodriguez wasn’t working out and have decided to rejigger the role. Such shakeups are common both before, during and after the pilot creation process — nobody is ever really assured of having any given role until after the full series goes into production in the summer. »

Tuesday night at the NerdMelt theater in Los Angeles, television writer and creator Eric Kripke was on hand for a panel called Genre Smash!—a nonprofit event sponsored by the Writer’s Guild Foundation that drew a packed house into the back of Meltdown Comics. Kripke is perhaps best known as the creator of the brothers-fighting-monsters series Supernatural, now set to enter its tenth season on the CW, but Kripke also had a lot to say about his new show Revolution on NBC (with J.J. Abrams), the screenwriting process, and his early days on shows like the WB’s Tarzan (which became a running joke throughout the evening as the ultimate crappy starting point—“It sucked. It just sucked” ).
Throughout the panel, Kripke was disarmingly funny, just as prepared to deprecate himself as speak about his successes. A thread of spontanaiety accompanied most of his writing advice, insisting »

Smash alum Katharine McPhee has been cast in a CBS drama, according to THR. She'll play a "working-class hero and diner waitress" on Scorpion, a show about an ensemble of geniuses; said waitress is not among the geniuses, of course, but is instead "a nanny of sorts and a translator for … socially misunderstood masterminds." Probably with her special lady-powers of understanding! No word yet on whether this waitress will sing, but maybe it will come about in a scene where the geniuses have assumed no one else has an interior life and then boom, it turns out they do. »
