Logo recently announced their new Bachelor-like dating show, Finding Prince Charming. While the network revealed Lance Bass would be hosting their new reality show, nothing was mentioned about the eligible bachelor. Luckily for us, TMZ has discovered the lucky man wooing the 13 male suitors.

“Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture,” said Logo exec Pamela Post in a statement. “Finding Prince Charming will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”

Meet Robert Sepulveda Jr. He’s an Atlanta-based interior designer with Puerto Rican roots. As you’d expect, Robert fills out a pair of Speedos quite nicely. The spicy Latin silver fox is certainly in good shape.

Check out plenty of shirtless pics of Sepulveda Jr. below. Be sure to weigh in afterward if you think producers chose wisely or if they should’ve tapped a bachelor that didn’t look like he spent time at the gym instead 😉

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone clearly love working with each other. La La Land is their third outing together, following Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad. Stone is one lucky chick to get an opportunity to lock lips with Gosling on numerous occasions. She clearly made a deal with the devil 😉

If you love classic musical romances, La La Land is a definite must-see. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), the film tells the story of Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Jessica Rothe, Sonoya Mizuno and Callie Hernandez round out the cast. La La Land waltzes into theaters on December 16. Check out the teaser trailer below.

nelly-furtado-behind-your-back

Just weeks after sharing her cover of Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close,” Nelly Furtado returns with another track. And this time around, it’s an original composition.

The 37-year-old reveals “Behind Your Back” is just a one-off single, merely an appetizer for her much-anticipated sixth studio album. “Surrounded by my 90’s heroes had me nostalgic. Behind Your Back is a special that won’t b on my LP. It’s a palette cleanse… an appetizer,” she reveals.

“Behind Your Back” doesn’t exactly scream radio hit. With that being said, I quite like it. Even though it’s not mainstream, I like that it shows off a different, more mature side of the “Promiscuous” singer. Give it a listen below.

barracuda-trailer

Leading up to the 2016 Rio Olympics, Aussie station ABC will its salacious new drama Barracuda. Based on a novel by the award-winning Melbourne-based writer Christos Tsiolkas, the four-part program tells the story of a swimmer pursuing Olympic gold and dealing with his homosexuality.

Six Feet Under actress Rachel Griffiths plays a prickly mother of one of the swimmers while Elias Anton takes on the main character Danny Kelly. Finger crossed, a US network brings over this promising series or adapts it. It wouldn’t be the first time. Both NBC’s The Slap and ABC’s Secret and Lies were based on the Australian television series of the same name.

Barracuda Series Synopsis

Melbourne 1996. The Golden Age of Australian swimming is beginning and a scholarship to an exclusive boys school brings 16-year-old Danny Kelly one step closer to his ultimate goal – winning Olympic gold.

Initially, Danny struggles to find his place in the prestigious social circles of the private boys school. However under the charge of highly regarded coach Frank Torma and a friendship/rivalry with teammate Martin Taylor, Danny is soon on track to become Australia’s youngest swimming champion, the unstoppable Barracuda.

Soon, everyone has a stake in Danny’s success and as he swims closer towards gold, he finds himself being drawn into a world where the only thing that matters is winning. When he gets his shot at victory, with all of Australia watching – can the ‘Barracuda’ live up to everyone’s expectations and realise his dream?

Just when you thought Chris Hemsworth couldn’t get any cuter, he does. The 32-year-old actor adorably refers to himself as Hemsy in a new advert for Australian television company, Foxtel.

A tank top-wearing Hemsworth is shown sifting through all his movies available on Foxtel. “So many movies. With and without Hemsy,” he says without cracking up. Naturally, he sticks to the former and checks out his films, Thor and Red Dawn. Check out the clip below.

white-girl-movie-trailer

Elizabeth Wood’s directorial debut caused a buzz at Sundance earlier this year. After checking out the official trailer, I can see why. It’s one intense and trippy ride.

Vice describes it as “the most explosive portrait of NYC youth since Kids.” I totally agree with that assessment, but would also add I saw glimpses of Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem For A Dream as well.

Homeland alum Morgan Saylor portrays a college student who moves to New York City, but unfortunately falls for the wrong guy- a drug dealer named Blue (Brian Marc). After a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back.

Chris Noth and Justin Bartha round out the cast. White Girl arrives on August 26. On a side note, Saylor, who annoyed me as Dana Brody on Homeland, is quite fantastic in the trailer. Check out the gripping trailer below.
