Attention Gossip Girl Fans: Penn Badgley Just Debuted a Totally New Look
Spotted: Penn Badgley looking nothing like Lonely Boy. In fact, the actor was giving his Gossip Girl role as Dan Humphrey a run for his money when he debuted a new look during a performance at Miami's Art Basel. The 30-year-old showed off some serious scruff and a blond 'do while he and his band Mothxr performed at the Life of the Party event which was held at the Bricknell City Centre last night. Badgley sang several tracks from the band's new album like "Touch," "She Can't Tell" and "Victim." And while his musical career is clearly top priority these days, Badgley has made it clear that he hasn't put his acting chops on the back burner,...

8 TV couples who should never have got together, from Moonlighting to Doctor Who

There are certain pairings on TV that we like to categorise as 'Be Careful What You Wish For' couples. You know what we're talking about. Two characters have such undeniable, simmering romantic chemistry that everyone, from the fans to the writers to the actors, is rooting for them to get together and make it work.

Maybe the writers drag it out for a few seasons, playing on the will-they-won't-they tension, before finally biting the bullet and putting the couple together. And when they finally do... you wish they'd never gone there.

Below are eight TV couples we were convinced we needed to see hook up, until they did.

1. Ten & Rose (Doctor Who)

Shippers, hear us out. The dynamic between Christopher Eccleston's haunted Time Lord and Billie Piper's fun, fiery Rose was a winner - not so much Will They / Won't They as an Are They / Aren't They (in love,

Paging Lonely Boy! Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford might have signed on for new TV projects (in the ABC pilots L.A.

This is his first leading role on the small screen since the soapy CW show ended in 2012, though Crawford, 29, guested as a Wasp-y Yale student on Glee last season (typecasting, much?).

Rock Grammys predictions: Beck, Black Keys, and Jack White

Rock Grammys predictions: Beck, Black Keys, and Jack White
At this Sunday's Grammys, we're predicting veteran artists to split the prizes in the rock field, including Beck, who is also nominated for Album of the Year this year. Below, our forecasts for three rock categories, ranked in order of their racetrack odds. (Click on each category title to read an in-depth look at that race): -Break- Will Arcade Fire win Music Video Grammy with help from Andrew Garfield? Best Rock Performance "Fever," Black Keys – 2/5 "Blue Moon," Beck – 11/2 "Lazaretto," Jack White – 12/1 "Do I Wanna Know," Arctic Monkeys – 20/1 "Gimme Something Good," Ryan Adams – 100/1 Despite only three previous years of the consolidated Rock Performance category, there is a past winner in the mix this year: the Black Keys, who won in 2012 for "Lonely Boy" and now contend for their song "Fever."

Do Black Keys have Grammys advantage against solo artists for Best Rock Performance?

Do Black Keys have Grammys advantage against solo artists for Best Rock Performance?
There isn't much precedent to consider when predicting Best Rock Performance at the Grammys. The category has only existed in its current form since 2011. Before that, the Grammys divided rock performances between solo artists and duos/groups. And for several years, solo performances were further split between male and female artists. -Break- But despite only three previous years of the consolidated Rock Performance category, there is a past winner in the mix this year: the Black Keys, who won in 2012 for "Lonely Boy" and now contend for their song "Fever." They also won Rock Duo/Group in 2010 for "Tighten Up," so we know the recording academy is fond of them, but they might also have another advantage: duos and groups have had a significant advantage in this category against solo artists.

'Guardians,' 'Whiplash,' and… '12 Years a Slave' (throwback!) among Casting Society’s nominees
Because the Casting Society of America shifted the date of its Artios Awards, this year’s nominees include films released theatrically from July 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2014, paving the way for last year’s Best Picture winner to nuzzle its way into contention along with 2014 hopefuls like "Birdman," "Boyhood," and "Selma." With categories ranging from Big Budget Drama to Low Budget Comedy, nearly every film that one expects to make the cut made the cut. And then some. The Csa’s nominees put "Guardians of the Galaxy" side by side with "Wolf of Wall Street," "Whiplash" with "Inside Llewyn Davis," and Disney’s "Planes" with "Frozen." If you were dreaming of a re-evaluation of "We’re the Millers," your time is now. 2015’s bicoastal Artios Awards will be hosted by Patton Oswalt (Los Angeles) and Michael Urie (New York City). The evening will also honor two-time Academy Award®-nominee Richard Linklater ("Boyhood

“Glee” 5.12: Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Six Hundred Minutes

  • The Backlot
Here’s what you missed on Glee: New Directions didn’t win Nationals so Sue promised to shut down glee club, but for real this time. No, seriously. For real. For real, you guys.

One of the weirdest things about human beings is we’re all so very caught up in our own narcissistic deal that is blows our mind grapes wide open when the world keeps on spinning in our absence. And so it is that Rachel and Mercedes are completely bamboozled that there’s no red carpet or confetti or even just a parking lot parade to mark their return to McKinley for the newest last time that Sue has finally destroyed New Directions for now. Their main thing, though, is that they want the other one to admit to being the silver medalist in the Diva Olympics. First leg of the competition: Rachel’s front-and-center chair in the choir room,

The Gossip Girl Duo Turns Their Attention to Dolls
The team behind the greatest show in the history of television has certainly been keeping busy since Lonely Boy was revealed to be Gossip “Girl.” Now, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are moving up to the big screen. Deadline reports they’ll write and produce a Monster High movie for Universal. If you’re unfamiliar, Mattel’s 3-year-old doll franchise is made up of “imperfect teen children of the world’s most famous monsters” (think Frankenstein and the Wolfman as Bratz) – which actually doesn't sound all that different from the halls of Constance Billard. Brand creators Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will work alongside Schwartz and Savage and we can only hope one of those little monsters adopts Queen B’s way with headbands.
