How many chances does a guy get? Gotta give Matthew Perry credit for being so resilient and forge ahead despite numerous failures. If I was him, I’d just sit back and enjoy those Friends royalties. Right?
Since the classic NBC sitcom signed off, Perry has headlined three failed series- two on NBC, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006) and Go On (2012) and one over at ABC, Mr. Sunshine (2011). This time, he’s hoping to have better luck over at CBS.
The 44-year-old is working on a new version of Neil Simon’s Broadway classic, The Odd Couple. The play was previously adapted into a successful TV series back in the 70s starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. Mad About You‘s Danny Jacobson is the writer on the project. Perry will play Oscar Madison, the messy curmudgeon one.
First and foremost, huge thanks to Daniel Garofali for sending these photos our way. Much appreciated. The stunningly gorgeous stud graces the cover of DNA’s Swimsuit Issue. Those lucky Aussies are enjoying Summer while poor us in North America are in the midst of Winter. BRRRRRR!!!
Photographer Rick Day captures Garofali’s masculine beauty as he wears an assortment of bathing suits, ranging from modest to very revealing. Let’s just say you can almost see the pot of gold at the end of his treasure trail in certain shots. Check out Daniel below writhe and splash around on the beach for the Aussie publication. It’s the perfect way to warm up this cold December day.
On the heels of House of Cards picking up four Golden Globes nominations and SAG nods this week, Netflix debuts a two-minute teaser trailer for its highly-anticipated second season. The political thriller has a lot to live up to for its sophomore run. It made history earlier this year in September when it became the first web-only series to win an award during the Primetime Emmys. Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and company return on February 14, 2014 on Netflix. As the teaser states, “Let the butchery begin…”
Season 2 Synopsis
Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has masterfully maneuvered his way into the vice presidency, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts. Investigative reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) is inching closer to the truth about Frank and Peter Russo (Corey Stoll) and will stop at nothing to break the story. And Frank’s wife Claire (Robin Wright), the newly appointed Second Lady, must deal with the bright glare of the spotlight and how the intense scrutiny eats away at their once private existence.
HOLY FILLER BATMAN. With no “Save Me” songs this week, Mario Lopez draaaaaaaagged out the results. No lie, it took until half way through the show before Lopez announced the first person to advance. Up until then, there was an extensive recap of the previous night’s performances and a group number. For the latter, the Final 4 teamed up to cover “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson. Find out who was eliminated below.
Before we get to the eliminations, congratulations to Alex & Sierra for having three tracks on iTunes Top 20 list. “Little Talks” and “Gravity” peaked at #14 and #2 respectively, while last week’s epic “Say Something” cover still sits at #9. Ironically, the original version held down the top slot. Props to Jeff Gutt as well for hitting #5 with his “Hallelujah” rendition.
Lea Michele dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the third time on Thursday. In addition to promoting her debut single “Cannonball,” the 27-year-old opened up about dealing with Cory Monteith’s untimely death. She reveals how Kate Hudson, Ryan Murphy and her mom all helped her deal with her grief just days after her loss.
“She was so wonderful to basically give me her home to myself and my family,” Michele said Hudson. “It was so helpful to just, basically, have a safe place to process, and just have a minute to just breathe before getting back to my house with just has a lot of memories and stuff. So being some place else to just have a moment was really nice.”
On a lighter note, Michele performed her soon-to-be hit single live for the first time. The more I hear “Cannonball,” the more I get hooked. With that being said, I found it hard to separate Lea from her alter ego Rachel Berry during her performance. Am I alone in thinking this? Check out her number below along with her interview.
It’s no surprise that 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle led the way with seven nominations each when the 71st annual Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning. Both have done well with all the critics awards leading up to today’s announcement, especially the former. The latter’s cast were showered with praises, earning a nod in every acting comedy category.
What was surprising, if not shocking, was one notable snub. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association are notorious star f**kers. They have a long history of nominating substandard performances in hopes of filling up the ballroom with famous people. However this year, lesser known names made the cut while arguably one of the most famous, if not powerful, person got completely shunned. Oprah Winfrey, my dear… you don’t get a nod! You don’t get a nod! In fact, no one from the star-studded Lee Daniels’ The Butler, including the film itself was nominated. The film was not only a box office hit but a critical favorite as well.
The silver lining is that there is absolutely no crossover with the HFPA voters and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. However, it’s still nice to be nominated given the show is widely seen and offers a great opportunity for those in the race to do some hardcore publicity and campaigning. With regards to the HFPA, I’d still be worried if I was one of the 90-something GG voters. We all know how long Winfrey likes to hold a grudge. Just go ask David Letterman.
Check out all the nominations below. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. I have high hopes they’ll deliver another winning performance.
Everyone knows Mark and Donnie, but how about Paul? He’s another one from the Wahlberg clan. You’ll get to know more about this brother if you tune in to A&E’s upcoming docu-series titled Wahlburgers.
The show chronicles Mark & Donnie heading back to their native Boston to help their older bro out with his new hamburger restaurant. You’ll also get to know their spirited mother Alma. In the teaser, she reveals a time when it wasn’t cool to be her famous sons’ mother. I can only imagine the trouble they got into as kids.
Wahlburgers premieres on A&E on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Watch the new promo below to find out exactly what’s in a Donnie Double D burger. I hope it has nothing to do with Donnie’s girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy’s breasts. I’d much rather have some secret sauce ;)
Executive producer Jeff Davis previously teased the second part of Season 3 will take a more psychological thriller route. It’ll feature less action and introduce more terror. Based on the first full trailer for Season 3B, he’s making good on his promise. The last few moments showing Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) being dragged away is truly menacing. I’m fine with any direction as long as they continue to be one of the gayest shows on television.
Plenty of new nefarious factors come into play including hooded figures and masked men. In addition, each of our beloved characters seem to be transforming into the monsters they’ve been so desperately trying to avoid. Teen Wolf (Season 3: Part 2) premieres Monday, January 6. Check out the new trailer below.
