TV Stars Who Have Dated Their Co-Stars

30 December 2011 10:08 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Debra Messing may be hooking up with her "Smash" co-star Will Chase, but she's hardly the only TV star to find love on set. Back in 2003, sparks flew for co-stars Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody on the set of "The Oc," and who could ever forget Joanie (Erin Moran) and Chachi's (Scott Baio) real-life romance that was worthy of a spin-off?

Plus, only in the world of TV is it ever acceptable to fall in love with your small-screen brother. Just ask Katherine Heigl, who dated her "Roswell" on-screen sibling Jason Behr in 2000. Meanwhile, Lauren Graham and her current boyfriend Peter Krause, who plays her TV brother Adam Braverman on "Parenthood," have been spotted vacationing in Venice together.

Take a look at some of these other TV stars who have found love on set. »

Chase, 41, is currently divorcing his stage actress wife Stephanie Gibson, after splitting this month. And though an on-set source says Messing and Chase have been an item for six weeks, it took a while for people to catch on. »

Debra Messing dating 'Smash' costar Will Chase?

29 December 2011 4:22 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Debra Messing and husband Daniel Zelman are undergoing a separation -- despite still living together for the sake of their 7-year-old son -- so it makes sense that she would be stepping out with someone new.

But according to People, that someone has just as complicated a love life as she does. 

An insider tells the magazine that Messing has been dating Will Chase, her costar in NBC's upcoming musical drama "Smash," for six weeks now.

"It all happened very fast and it's a difficult situation," the source says, referring to the fact that Chase is also going through a separation. His rep confirmed to People that he and Broadway star Stephanie Gibson are getting a divorce. 

Despite their separation, Messing and Zelman's rep says the pair aren't planning a divorce just yet.

Messing plays a songwriter composing a Marilyn Monroe musical on "Smash," which premieres on NBC Feb. 6. »

Morning Meme: "Modern Family: The Revenge," Al Roker's Man Candy, and Debra Messing Dips Her Quill Into Company Ink

29 December 2011 5:22 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

If the year belonged to anyone, it belonged to Ryan Gosling, who seemed to be everywhere, making movies, giving interviews, even breaking up street fights. These are his greatest hits.

I was truly taken by the horrible customer relations nightmare that Ocean Marketing caused for itself, and really impressed at how Penny Arcade stepped up  to defend the customer. Now it's become a full-fledged meme, and Paul is off the account. But maybe Mike at Penny Arcade enjoyed it just a bit too much? Or not.

Mitt Romney isn't as bad as most Republicans, at least on most issues. While the majority of the presidential candidates favor abolishing PBS and NPR, he just wants to cut off federal funding and add commercials to Sesame Street. To sell toys, which will help the economy. Or something.

We're just weeks away from the debut of "Smash," NBC's highly-anticipated musical drama from Steven Spielberg, and new bits of pieces are starting to roll out.

In this behind-the-scenes video from, you can see (and hear) series stars Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty sing Rihanna's song, "Cheers (I'll Drink To That)" in New York City's Times Square.

Spielberg's Top Concern Filming 'War Horse'

22 December 2011 10:53 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

From Mother Nature Network's Gerri Miller:

According to "War Horse" director Steven Spielberg, "Four million horses were killed in World War I and not just from shelling or gunfire, but from malnutrition and exposure." Spielberg depicts that brutal reality in his new film, but despite the harrowing situations they face, the equine heroes of Spielberg's latest epic were not harmed in any way making the movie. Extra care was taken in a climactic sequence in which a horse is caught up in barbed wire in No Man's Land. "It took much longer to shoot that scene because we had to make sure every single shot was safe for the horse." The barbed wire was actually "Styrofoam rubber painted silver," he adds.

American Humane Society representative Barbara Carr was on set throughout and "had the power to pull the plug if she ever felt any of the horses were not up »
