greys-anatomy-season-10

Good news for all you Meredith Grey fans. ABC just inked a deal to extend Ellen Pompeo’s contract with the medical drama for two more seasons. Patrick Dempsey also signed a similar deal. Before you get too excited, the network hasn’t officially renewed Grey’s Anatomy for Season 11 or 12 yet. With this development though, I wouldn’t be surprised if ABC doesn’t make it official in the near future.

Of the remaining original cast members left, Sandra Oh who plays Cristina Yang is the only who’s announced she’s leaving the show at some point during the show’s tenth season. Oh joins T.R. Knight, Katherine Heigl and Isaiah Washington as departed OG alums. No word yet on what remaining originals Justin Chambers, James Pickens, Jr. or Chandra Wilson plan on doing after the end of this season.

Happy that Pompeo and Dempsey are staying on the show? Are you still watching Grey’s Anatomy? Do you think Chambers, Pickens Jr. or Wilson will stay or go? Weigh in below.

Colin Jost has been named as Seth Meyers’ successor at the Weekend Update desk. He’ll co-anchor with Cecily Strong starting March 1 when Meyers departs to Late Night.

Jost may not be a familiar face for most Saturday Night Live viewers, but he’s been with the show since 2005. At age 22, he joined the show’s writing staff. He has three WGA Awards, a Peabody Award and seven Emmy nominations for his work on the series. SNL promoted Colin to head writer back in 2012. He’s the third consecutive head writer to take over the coveted position, following in the footsteps of Meyers and Tina Fey.

Colin is a 2004 graduate of Harvard University and was president of the Harvard Lampoon. He’s also a stand-up comedian who’s appeared at the Just For Laughs festivals in Chicago and Montreal, and on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This summer he’ll hit the big screen in Staten Island Summer which he wrote about his days as a lifeguard. Check out a couple pics of Colin below. Dude is a certifiable hottie.

When The CW first announced Grant Gustin as the Flash, I wasn’t super thrilled. Perhaps his appearance on Glee was the reason behind my feelings. After seeing him in action during a couple episodes of Arrow this season, I was sold.

Originally, the network planned to film a backdoor pilot, but changed its mind and is producing a standalone pilot instead. Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg as well as director David Nutter are behind the potential spinoff. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gustin finally has some company. Find out who below.

On February 6, Jay Leno relinquishes The Tonight Show mantle for the second time. Here’s hoping for Jimmy Fallon that his stint lasts longer than Conan O’Brien’s. That debacle wasn’t pretty for anyone involved.

Hoping to make the transition much smoother this time around, Leno invited Fallon as one of his guests for his final week. Jimmy will appear with Betty White on Monday, February 3. Who gets the honor of being Jay’s last guest? Fittingly enough it’s Billy Crystal. The When Harry Met Sally actor was Leno’s first guest on May 25, 1992. Talk about coming full circle. Find out the rest of Jay’s final week lineup, along with Fallon’s first guests.

True Blood Finds Luke Grimes’ Replacement

Luke Grimes debuted as sexy vampire James on last season’s True Blood. A few weeks ago, the actor revealed he left the supernatural series over creative differences. The HBO show decided to recast the role instead of writing off James. Grimes’ replacement comes in the form of Aussie actor Nathan Parsons.

The 25-year-old is best known for his daytime work in General Hospital. He’s also a recurring character on ABC Family’s Bunheads. For all you lovers of homoerotic films, Parson starred in one of David DeCoteau’s sexy horror offerings, The Brotherhood V. Just like the rest of DeCoteau’s films, it features very little plot and plenty of shirtless hot guys. I suggest putting it on mute to really enjoy the film ;) Check out True Blood‘s newest addition below.

It’s about friggin’ time.

When Glee returns from its winter hiatus, the FOX musical show will celebrate its 100th episode. It’s such a game-changer that the milestone show will be split into two parts. A slew of former regulars will drop by including Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr. and Heather Morris. YAY Brittany S. Pierce. Memorable guest stars Kristin Chenoweth and Gwyneth Paltrow have also been tapped to reprise their roles. If that wasn’t enough, a former Gossip Girl actor is dropping by as well. Chace Crawford will play Biff, a new love interest to Dianna Agron’s Quinn.

The 100th episode will also feature the cast singing songs which they’ve performed in past seasons that fans picked in an online vote. The biggest story though, after numerous attempts, is that Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) finally succeeds in her plan to destroy the glee club. In light of this development, the remainder of this season will be set entirely in New York. What does this mean for the members of New Directions, Mr. Schu and the rest of the Lima cast? Find out below.

point-break-remake

Like it or not, the Point Break remake is happening. Personally, there’s no need to touch the Kathryn Bigelow-directed original starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, but with Hollywood’s love affair for rehashing hits from yesteryear, it was bound to happen.

Ericson Core whose cinematography credits include The Fast & the Furious and Daredevil will direct the remake. The movie is rumored to be eyeing a summer shoot. Kurt Wimmer’s revised screenplay will move the action from the Southern California surf scene to the international world of extreme sports. Other than that, the plot of an FBI agent going undercover to infiltrate a crime ring will remain the same, as well as the names of the main characters. Find out who’s close to officially signing on to the project below.
