ABC doesn’t officially announce the new cast of Dancing With The Stars until March 8, but a few names have already leaked. Among the names circulating is none other than America’s Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco. The sexually-fluid reality stud would be a great and tasty addition.

If the chatter is true, the 26-year-old stunner will become the dancing competition’s second deaf contestant. Oscar winner Marlee Matlin was the first. She placed seventh on the sixth season of DWTS, which Kristi Yamaguchi eventually won.

Also rumored to be joining the Season 22 cast are Fuller House’s Jodie Sweetin and Kim Fields of Facts of Life fame and most recently, the Real Housewives of Atlanta. If you don’t know the wonderment that is Nyle, check out a few pics of the model below.

In: Donovan, Movies

Great to see Jussie Smollett building up his film resume. Empire isn’t going to last forever.

The 32-year-old actor is the latest to join Alien: Covenant. The Ridley Scott sci-fi flick serves as the sequel to Prometheus and prequel to his Alien trilogy. Only Michael Fassbender thus far is set to reprise his character from Prometheus. Hopefully, a deal gets worked out to bring Noomi Rapace back as well. Find out who else is part of the cast below.

Luke Perry is heading back to high school. Only this time, he’s playing one of the parents. WOW!!! When did I get old :(

The CW reveals the 49-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 actor will play Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews in their potential new series, Riverdale. His character owns a construction business and has a laid-back parenting style.

Riverdale is an upcoming one-hour drama based on the beloved Archie Comics, set in present day. It’s a subversive take on Archie and his crew, exploring the surrealism of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade. Greg Berlanti, the man behind Supergirl and Blindspot will produce the series for The CW.

Perry joins previously announced cast members Cole Sprouse (Jughead Jones) and Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper). Find out below who Berlanti tapped to play the iconic teen from Archie Comics.

The Cruel Intentions TV sequel just got a whole lot better. Initially, when NBC announced the project, I was a little wary. Trying to recapture the magic of the 1999 teen flick would be difficult, especially with Ryan Phillippe’s character six feet under. I never imagined in a million years that any of the principal cast would return. Boy, was I wrong.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is about to channel her inner bitch once again. The 38-year-old actress is set to reprise her role as the conniving Kathryn Merteuil in the pilot. Should the peacock network pick up the series, she’ll be a series regular.

The series will pick up a decade and a half after the events of the feature film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The drama follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil (Gellar) as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey (Taylor John Smith), son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove. Upon discovering his late father’s legacy in a hidden journal, Bash is introduced to a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined”

Roger Kumble, who wrote and directed the original Cruel Intentions, is helming the pilot. Gellar announced her involvement via Instagram with a pic that showed her posing with the film’s director and producer, then and now. Check it out below.

ABC already found its Frances “Baby” Houseman (Scream Queen‘s Abigail Breslin) and now it has its Johnny Castle. After a lengthy nationwide search, actor-dancer Colt Prattes has been tapped to play the role, famously played by the late Patrick Swayze, for ABC’s remake. Prattes is about to have the time of his life. I couldn’t resist 😉

Colt has plenty of Broadway credits to his name including How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, West Side Story and Legally Blonde: The Musical to name a few. However, it’s his appearance as Pink’s hunky dance partner in her “Try” video that he’s best known for. Whether he has the swagger to pull off Castle, he certainly has the moves. Given his size and muscular frame, it’s shocking how well and agile he moves. He literally is poetry in motion in that Pink video.

Prattes and Breslin are also joined by Debra Messing who’s been cast as Baby’s mother, Marjorie. ABC’s three-hour adaptation doesn’t have an air date yet. In the meantime, check out Prattes in all his shirtless glory below, if you aren’t already familiar with him.
