Hilary Duff Signs On For New Darren Star Comedy

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Not that I wish singledom on any individual, but I’m sorta on board with Hilary Duff separating from Mike Cromie. It’s not that I’m not a fan of the retired hockey player. Rather, since their separation, Duff has slowly come out of her cocoon and started lining up project after project. She recently announced a forthcoming fifth studio album and now is staging a television comeback.

The 26-year-old just signed on to star in a new comedy for TV Land. Younger comes from the brilliant mind of Darren Star. The prolific producer is the man responsible for Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, the short-lived GCB and Sex and the City. The single-camera comedy is set to premiere Fall 2014.

“There’s nothing better than making a single-camera film comedy in New York — and I’m thrilled to be doing this one with TV Land,” Darren Star says in a press release. “Looking forward to working with our awesome cast led by my Broadway crush Sutton Foster.”

Jeremy Irvine Cast In Stonewall Movie

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

The Stonewall Riots that took place on June 28, 1969 in New York are arguably one of the most important moments in LGBT history. Roland Emmerich who gave the world Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012 is recreating those historic moments for an upcoming film aptly titled Stonewall. Emmerich might seem like an odd choice, but it’s a passion project for the openly-gay director. The film just signed its first actor.

Jeremy Irvine who starred in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse has been tapped to star in Stonewall. In his relatively short career, the 23-year-old English actor has built up quite an impressive resume. He’s appeared in Great Expectations with Helena Bonham Carter, The Railway Man co-starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman and The Reach with Michael Douglas.

Emmerich will start production on Stonewall while he continues prepping Independence Day Forever, which has a July 1, 2016 release date. Yup, there is a follow up to the 1996 Will Smith film. Check out more pics of Jeremy below.

Sorry Enlisted fans, it appears your beloved sitcom isn’t coming back. Two of the three brothers have landed a new gig.

Parker Young and Geoff Stults have been cast in a CBS pilot titled Cuz-Bros. The co-stars go from playing siblings to cousins. Maybe there’s a way for their other on-screen brother Chris Lowell to drop by during sweeps month should CBS pick up the series. Deadline.com reports that Nick (Stults) is a ladies’ man living in Los Angeles who takes in his cousin Barry (Young) who needs a place to crash.

Hopefully, the two engage in some shower sudsy time as they did on the FOX sitcom. In the off chance that FOX renews Enlisted, it has first dibs on the actors and their roles on Cuz-Bros would need to be recast.

Just in case you don’t watch the FOX comedy, check out the aforementioned shower scene below. If you haven’t cast your vote on our Who’d You Rather: Enlisted poll, click here.

He’s also played homosexuals in Howl and Milk where he played Allen Ginsberg and activist Scott Smith respectively.
