On the second season finale of Revenge, Victoria Grayson’s (Madeleine Stowe) long lost son appeared on the footsteps of Grayson manor. While we didn’t see his face, his appearance shocked Victoria enough to drop her glass. I just hope it wasn’t expensive ;) Maybe it wasn’t shock, but rather she was taken aback how breathtakingly handsome he is. Spoiler alert: He is one hot piece of ass.

We learned last season, Victoria gave birth to a boy named Patrick when she was just 16. She gave up her child when an opportunity to attend an art school in Paris came up. E! News exclusively reports that Revenge has finally cast the pivotal role. If you’re a regular viewer of The CW, you’ll recognize this actor. Here’s a hint: He starred in a show last year that didn’t last for very long. Find out who below.

With Angus T. Jones being phased out from Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre is on the hunt for another “half.” In a somewhat surprising twist, the new young addition to the veteran sitcom is going to be an LGBT character. In fact, it’s going to be a lesbian and not just any, but Charlie Harper’s (Charlie Sheen) long-lost daughter.

Adam Lambert Joins Glee

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Looks like another American Idol runner-up is walking the hallowed halls of McKinley High. Let’s just hope for Adam Lambert he actually has lines instead of Jessica Sanchez who popped up last season only to whip out a couple of performances.

Ryan Murphy broke the news in his usual fashion, via Twitter. The Glee co-creator wrote “I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall.” If the rumors of an all alumni judging panel for American Idol Season 13 come true, I can already picture FOX’s marketing campaign for an Adam Lambert night. Lots of glitter and over-the-top fabulousness.

Lambert isn’t the only newbie joining the fifth season of Glee. TVLine is reporting that the show is adding three new characters. After cutting several original cast members and promoting Melissa Benoist (Marley), Jacob Artist (Jake), Becca Tobin (Kitty), Blake Jenner (Ryder) and Alex Newell (Unique) to series regulars, I didn’t think they were going to introduce this much new blood. Find out what producers are casting for below.

After months of speculation, it’s official. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving her spot on The View after ten years. Nine years too long if you ask me. With Joy Behar announcing her departure back in March and Barbara Walters’ upcoming retirement, the long-running talk show will have a major facelift come September. Personally, I think it’s long overdue. With the ABC show dipping in ratings and CBS’ The Talk rising, something major needed to be done.

“We have had 10 wonderful years with Elisabeth, and she will now be swimming in new waters,” said Barbara Walters. “We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

If you’re in the minority and love Elisabeth, you only have one more day to enjoy her on The View. Wednesday, July 10 is her last day. Pretty quick deal if you ask me. IMHO, I think Hasselbeck was always on her way out despite Walters’ denial.

To save face, I think all parties involved waited til Hasselbeck secured a new job before announcing her departure. Speaking of her new gig, she’ll head over to FOX News and join the channel’s morning show, FOX & Friends. She takes over Gretchen Carlson who is getting her own afternoon show on the network.

“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” said FOX News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist, and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”

Brace yourself Gladiators, but it’s true. There was another actress in the running before Kerry Washington stepped in. Respect this other actress, but I can’t imagine anyone else besides Washington as the professional fixer on Scandal.

Before I divulge who that is, I just wanted to quickly congratulate the 36-year-old actress. The Django Unchained star just tied the knot with San Fracisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in Blaine County, Idaho. Reportedly, Asomugha’s sister, Chisara Okwu Asomugha officiated the ceremony. They have been dating since summer 2012. This is Kerry’s first marriage, but she was previously engaged to actor David Moscow before breaking off the engagement in 2007.

I was debating whether or not to make you guess which American Idol champ was joining Season 15 of the NBC weight loss reality show, but let’s be honest, Ruben Studdard is the obvious choice. Even when Kelly Clarkson was at her heaviest she wasn’t The Biggest Loser material. The Velvet Teddy Bear on the other hand is. Hope Ruben knows what he’s getting himself into. Jillian Michaels is hardcore.

This isn’t the first time the Season 2 winner has attempted to lose weight. Back in 2008, he slimmed down considerably when he married Surata Zuri McCants but gained it back when they divorced in 2012. He explained stress eating because of the divorce and a $100,000 tax bill from the IRS were to blame. Studdard also lost a bit of weight when he turned to vegetarianism, going from 455 lbs to the 380 lbs range.

Games of Thrones Casts The Red Viper

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The first major casting news of Game of Thrones Season 4 has been made. The hit HBO show headed to Chile to find its Oberyn Martell aka The Red Viper. Given the importance of the character, I’m pretty sure Pedro Pascal beat out tough competition to land the coveted role. For those unfamiliar with the Red Viper, he is the Prince of Dorne whose sister was killed by the Lannisters when the Mad King was overthrown. Here’s what the showrunners told EW.com about the casting.

“The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate… We found a fellow who can handle the job description and make it seem effortless. He wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.” – showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss

Glee Cuts Four Series Regulars For Season 5

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Last year, when the first crop of seniors graduated McKinley High, Ryan Murphy wasn’t ruthless enough to cut any of them, letting the cast decide if they wanted to stay on the show. The Glee co-creator kept all of them on payroll and as series regulars despite some of them only appearing in a handful of episodes. That’s not the case for Season 5. Find out who’s being cut from the show below.
