While rumors of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher returning back to the Star Wars franchise remain unconfirmed, we have one OG from the first Star Wars trilogy coming back for sure. Peter Mayhew who played everyone’s favorite Wookiee Chewbacca will reprise his role for Star Wars: Episode VII. This isn’t the first time Mayhew has returned to play the iconic character. He also played Chewbacca in the prequel film Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams and slated to hit theaters Dec. 18, 2015. Ever since its announcement it’s been shrouded in a thick veil of secrecy, with dozens of names flying through the rumor mill for months now. Among the familiar faces reportedly returning, Adam Driver is also in the mix. The Girls actor is said to be playing an undisclosed villain.

Are you excited for Chewie’s return? Weigh in below.

James Franco just can’t seem to shake the ‘gay’ away. The 35-year-old’s homo credentials include filming Interior. Leather Bar. which tackled the kinky side of gay sex. He’s also played homosexuals in Howl and Milk where he played Allen Ginsberg and activist Scott Smith respectively. Franco reunites with his Milk director, Gus Van Sant, for an upcoming film about ex-gay activist Michael Glatze.

“It’s not like it’s my mission to tell the stories of as many gay men as possible, although in some cases, I think it is the point,” Franco told The Daily Beast. “I guess that a lot of the figures that I love were gay.”

The Walking Dead ended its fourth season with record viewers. The finale delivered 15.7 million viewers, representing the biggest audience for a season finale. The number is just shy of the series’ all-time record of 16.1 million which the AMC drama scored during the fourth season opener.

Sunday night’s episode was up substantially from last season’s closer which clocked in 12.4 million total viewers. For the first time in the show’s history, it ended the season with a cliffhanger. With people curious to know how the ending will be resolved, I fully expect The Walking Dead to break records when it returns for Season 5.

Pharrell Williams Joins The Voice As Season 7 Coach

For the past couple seasons of The Voice, the two middle red swivel chairs have been occupied by a rotating schedule of coaches with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green swapping places with Shakira and Usher. With Green announcing he wasn’t returning for Season 7, a part of me was hoping either Usher or Shakira would stay on and join Christina.

Rather than going with that option, producers have decided to bring on someone new. The Voice announced via Twitter that Pharrell Williams and his Arby’s hat are the new judge/mentor.

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO #HAPPY to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS = #NewVoiceCoach for SEASON 7,” NBC wrote.

With Christina Aguilera pregnant, I wonder if she’ll also skip the next season. If she does, who should replace her? Are you excited for Pharrell to replace Cee Lo? I’m definitely intrigued. With his current Midas Touch, the 40-year-old is hotter than ever. Contestants will definitely want to be on his team. Weigh in below.

Krysta Rodriguez was originally cast in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother spin-off. After a table read, producers decided a last-minute cast change was in order. The Smash alum was originally slated to play the sexy, flamboyant fashion blogger best friend of Sally. The producers rejiggered the role and have picked Rodgriguez’s replacement for How I Met Your Dad.

The potential sitcom follows Sally (Greta Gerwig), a “female Peter Pan who has never grown up and has no idea of where she’s going in life. She has just figured out that she has nothing in common with her husband (Anders Holm) of less than a year and will find a solid circle of support in her friends and family.”

Ricky Martin is slowly but surely building his resume critiquing contestants. First The Voice Australia and now Dancing With The Stars. The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer is among a handful of celebrity guest judges that will join Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli this season. The announcement was made by the DWTS panel on Good Morning America.

If there is anyone who has the credentials to judge hip movements, it’s the 42-year-old. He’s been shaking his “bon bon” since his Menudo days in the 80s. I wonder if James Maslow’s sexy salsa on Monday night helped persuade Martin to jump on board. I hope Maslow is still in the competition when Martin drops by. I can’t wait to see what the Puerto Rican’s eyes focus on.
