Grease Live! Cast Hand Jives In New Promo

In: Donovan, TV Shows

On the heels of FOX releasing the first promo images of its highly-anticipated production of Grease Live!, comes the first clip. This time, however, Aaron Tveit, Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens aren’t the only ones featured. The entire main cast don their 50s-era outfits to serve up retro realness.

Carly Rae Jepsen (Frenchy), Keke Palmer (Marty), Carlos PenaVega (Kenickie) and the rest of the cast shake and shimmy in front of their Rydell High lockers to the iconic song, “Born To Hand Jive.” It’s a fun and slick promo that has me even more excited for the telecast. Will this new cast, though, do the beloved musical justice come January 2016? Fingers crossed. Check out the promo below.

Grease Live! Synopsis

Featuring a young ensemble cast, GREASE: LIVE will reintroduce and reimagine some of the show’s most memorable moments, great music and timeless love story to an entirely new generation. In this live television adaptation of the musical classic, the beginning of senior year means the end of Danny and Sandy’s summer romance – until Sandy unexpectedly transfers to Danny’s high school. Can Danny maintain his bad-boy image as the coolest member of the T-Birds, once he and Sandy start going together, and can Sandy remain a good girl after she joins the Pink Ladies? With their friends Rizzo and Kenickie pulling them in different directions, it’s up to Danny and Sandy to stay hopelessly devoted as they make their way from Rydell High to a new frontier.

Chris Colfer Joins Ab Fab Movie

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

The Absolutely Fabulous movie just got a little gayer. If that’s even possible 😉 The film’s official Facebook page announced Chris Colfer will join Patsy and Edina on the big screen.

“Look who’s found himself in the middle of an Ab Fab sandwich! We’re feeling totally gleeful as we welcome the wonderful Chris Colfer to the cast,” via Facebook

The former Glee actor joins previously announced celebrity guests Kate Moss, Emma ‘Baby Spice’ Bunton, Harry Styles, Kim Kardashian, Jerry Hall and Joan Collins. Colfer recently told Larry King Now his character is a “hairdresser-slash-social media consultant.” Try fitting that on a business card.

The Ab Fab movie plot reportedly revolves around Edina and Patsy running away to the French Riviera to escape that trouble they apparently caused at a London fashion party. It’s set to hit theaters July 2016. I can’t wait.


Since White Collar ended, Matt Bomer hasn’t been hard up for work. He starred in the Magic Mike movies, snagged a regular gig on the latest season of American Horror Story and will next appear in the upcoming The Magnificent Seven film remake. He even won a Golden Globe statue for his work in The Normal Heart. Who says you can’t be an openly gay actor and successful?

Deadline reports Bomer has a new gig lined up. The media outlet reveals the 38-year-old actor will headline Amazon’s Tycoon. The potential new series is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon.

Tyra Banks Quits Talk Show ‘FABLife’

In: Donovan, TV Shows

For her first talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, it ran for five seasons and won a couple of Daytime Emmys. Second time around hasn’t proved as successful.

Just two months on the air, Tyra Banks has decided to leave her new talk show FABLife. Can’t say that I’m all that surprised. Reviews for the show have been awful.

“This is a very difficult decision, but necessary,” Tyra said in a statement to THR. “I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company’s other entertainment ventures. I will however continue to support the growth and success of FABLife and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show.”

Banks will remain on the show behind-the-scenes as an executive producer until the end of December. IMHO, Tyra stepping down is just a preemptive move before the show gets officially yanked. This reeks of saving face. What do you think? Weigh in below.


On the heels of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announcing Denzel Washington as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award of the 73rd Golden Globes, comes news regarding the awards show’s other annual tradition. Jamie Foxx’s daugther, Corinne Foxx, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2016. The title is traditionally given to the daughter or son of a celebrity, and their responsibility is to assist in handing out the awards on the big night.

“We are delighted to have Corinne Foxx continue the tradition and have her as our 2016 Miss Golden Globe,” said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. “Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next.”

Foxx joins a long list of women who’ve held Miss Golden Globe honors including Linda Evans, Melanie Griffith, Anne Archer, Laura Dern and Rumer Willis. Kelsey Grammer’s daugther Greer Grammer scored the honor last year. A few men over the years have also scored the gig. Clark Gable’s son John Clark Gable, Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Freddie Prinze) and A.J. Lamas (Lorenzo Lamas) have been Mr. Golden Globes.

Meet Corinne below. Thankfully, she doesn’t look like her father in drag. Remember Foxx’s In Living Color alter ego, Wanda? No bueno.

The Pfeffermans are back and just in time for the holidays.

Amazon premieres the second season of its Emmy-winning series Transparent on December 11. The streaming service also announced Angelica Huston and Cherry Jones have booked guest spots on the show. No details about their respective roles were released. They join a guest roster that already includes Kathryn Hahn, Tig Notaro and Carrie Brownstein.

A newly-dropped teaser features everyone posing for a family picture. Naturally, things are chaotic trying to corral everyone at the wedding. However, it’s when the photographer calls Maura/Morton (Jeffrey Tambor) a certain three-letter word when things go wrong. Watch below to find out what he says.

The live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid still doesn’t have a director, but it finally secured its leading lady. Chloe Moretz announced via Twitter that she’s playing the titular character in Universal’s highly-anticipated remake.

“Been waiting a long time to tell you guys !! #TheLittleMermaid going to be a beautiful experience! Can’t wait to show everyone my Mermaid!” – Moretz via Twitter

Sofia Coppola was supposed to direct the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale but exited the project over creative differences. Universal’s take on the mermaid who gives up her life in the sea after falling in love with a prince will be decidedly darker than Disney’s animated film.

Do you think Moretz is the perfect choice to take on this part? Excited for a darker and edgier Little Mermaid? Weigh in below.
