I think every character in the award-winning comedy, Modern Family is fantastic, but Gloria (brilliantly played by Sofia Vergara) has to be my favorite.
In an upcoming episode, we’ll meet Gloria’s mom named Pilar and sister named Sonia for the first time. They will appear in the 12th episode of the season. My guess is that it will have something to do with the pregnancy, since that’d be a pretty solid reason for them to come to visit. I can only imagine a lot of yelling and big personalities. “There’s a bit of a competitive relationship between Gloria and her sister that will be fun,” executive producer Christopher Lloyd told EW. “The mother is the formidable, domineering character in the family, and has a complicated relationship with Jay (Ed O’Neill). I’m not sure she’s ever completely accepted Jay, and they lock horns in the episode.”
The episode is titled “Fulgencio” and they begin filming it tomorrow (Monday). Other guest stars this season include Matthew Broderick, Jason Mantzoukas, and Shelley Long. Find out who’s playing Gloria’s mom & sister below.
If you read our Who’d You Rather match-up this week, you know I’m a fan of the CW freshman series, Arrow. I’m not a comic book geek by any means, but I’m really enjoying the drama, surprisingly. Having a hot lead like Stephen Amell doesn’t hurt either.
EW.com is reporting that the show is adding a new villain to the show’s growing roster of bad guys. Deadshot, Deathstroke, The Huntress and China White have already been enlisted to face off against Oliver Queen this season. On the tenth episode, Firefly joins the battle royale. For all you comic book novices, Firefly is a DC Comics character and originally one of Batman’s nemesis. Find out what actor has been cast in the role.
Looks like someone’s booking an airline ticket from Lima, Ohio to sunny Beverly Hills, California. An actor on Glee just booked a recurring role on the CW’s 90210. I wonder how Ryan Murphy feels about this teen show double dipping. Probably isn’t a fan, but given this person hasn’t appeared on the FOX show yet this season, he probably doesn’t have a say.
The actor in question will appear on CW’s flailing show (have you seen the ratings this season… OUCH) for multiple episodes on 90210‘s fifth season. He will play Campbell, “a charming and good-looking college student from a wealthy and privileged background.” Have any guesses on who? Find out below.
When you’re as hot as Shemar Moore, you need not one, but two guys to fill your shoes. Ever since his popular character, Malcolm Winters, left Genoa City in 2005, fans have pined for someone as hot as Moore. The show producers are hoping these two new actors connect with soap opera viewers with their great looks and smokin’ hot bodies. With Days of Our Lives airing a steamy gay sex scene next month, daytime television is where it’s at with regards to juicy eye candy.
First up is Redaric Williams who’ll tackle the role of Tyler Douglas. Though relatively new to the acting game, Williams has appeared on Damages. Not surprisingly, with his bone structure, Redaric is a model as well. The 6’1″ stunner recently appeared as the face of Carling Black Label in South Africa. The other newbie is also a model. Lamon Archey joins the show as Mason. Not much was released by Y&R in terms of character background, but both will begin making appearances in November at Genoa City’s athletic club and coffee house. Check out both men (shirtless of course) below.
It was bound to happen and now it’s officially coming our way. The team that brought 2006 parody flick Date Movie is developing another comedic film, this time poking fun at The Hunger Games. Hilariously titled, The Starving Games, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer will make jabs at Katniss Everdeen and company, but will also mock(ingjay LOL) The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. Production on the parody film will reportedly kick off this week in New Orleans.
As with the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel, the key to the film is finding the perfect person to portray the heroine lead. Jennifer Lawrence beat out a slew of actresses to play the part including Emma Roberts, Emily Browning, Shailene Woodley, Hailee Steinfeld and others. The Starving Games has found its own version of Katniss, aptly called Kantmiss Evershot. Find out who’s playing her and the spoof version of Liam Hemsworth’s Gale Hawthorne below.
In the late 80s, early 90s, Mark-Paul Gosselaar shot to stardom playing the lovable Zack Morris on Saved By The Bell. Remember his high slicked hair and his gigantic brick-sized cellular phone? Good times. After years of playing serious roles, the actor is returning to his sitcom roots.
Tonight, he appears on the second season premiere of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 playing himself. James Van Der Beek bumps into Gosselaar and Frankie Muniz (Malcolm In The Middle) as he attempts to hold a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Seems like both ABC and Gosselaar enjoyed the experience tremendously. The 38-year-old actor just signed on to guest star on another ABC sitcom. EW.com is reporting that Mark-Paul is heading over to Happy Endings. Find out who he’s playing below.
Get It While You Can has been in pre-production hell for several years. The film revolves around rock legend Janis Joplin who died of a heroin overdose in 1970 at the age of 27. For some reason or another, the Joplin biopic just can’t move forward. Previously, Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) and Fernando Meirelles (City of God) were attached to direct the independent film. The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that Lee Daniels (Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire) is the latest director attached to the project.
The Philadelphia native is expected to sign on the dotted line in the coming weeks. If he does, production will begin in early 2013. Currently, Daniels is wrapping the filming of the all-star drama The Butler starring Jane Fonda, Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams and James Marsden to name a few. Find out which actress is attached below.
That’s right. The Divine Miss M is heading over to the FOX show to appear on Glee in an upcoming episode. Ryan Murphy announced the great news via Twitter. Murphy put the 66-year-old legend on the spot in front of 1,000 people at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Award ceremony held last night. Luckily for him (and us), Bette Midler was a good sport and replied ‘yes’.
Even though he’s already plotting on what role Midler would play, the Beaches star already gave her two cents. She suggested she play Rachel’s grandmother. AMAZING. While that would be an awesome role, I’d like Bette to pay homage to her early days when she used to sing at gay bathhouses in New York City. Can’t you just imagine it now. Blaine, Kurt, Karofsky and Sebastian doing a number at some bathhouse?
If Murphy doesn’t want to be that controversial, all I ask is for a scene with Midler and current guest-star Sarah Jessica Parker. The two previously worked together on Hocus Pocus. Hell, why not send Kathy Najimy an invitation as well. Another option could have Kate Hudson talk momma Goldie Hawn into appearing on the show, so that Midler and her can have a First Wives Club reunion. The possibilities are endless.
