Long before he donned vampire fangs for Twilight, Kellan Lutz appeared in HBO’s The Comeback. With the network renewing the much-loved cult hit almost ten years after it canceled the show, many hardcore fans were hoping several of the original cast members would return. Today, their collective wishes have been granted.

Lutz is reprising his role of Chris MacNess, an actor featured on Valerie Cherish’s sitcom, Room and Bored. The 29-year-old muscle stud will be joined by Malin Akerman who also appeared on the show within the show. She will once again play Juna Millken. Both actors will reportedly appear in all six new episodes of the show’s second season.

Did you watch The Comeback? Are you happy both Lutz and Akerman are back? Hoping any other originals return? Weigh in below.

ABC Announces Bachelor In Paradise Cast

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After three seasons of Bachelor Pad, ABC took a break last year but vowed to return. Somewhat true to their word, the network is offering another series from the Bachelor franchise. But this time, they’re sending Bachelor and Bachelorette rejects to an isolated island. I’m sensing Temptation Island but without any committed couples. Here’s the official description.

Some of The Bachelor’s biggest stars and villains are back. They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and onBachelor in Paradise they’ll get a second chance to find their soul mates. Contestants will live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak.

Earlier today, the network announced most of the cast starring on Bachelor In Paradise. Why only most? Reportedly, three of the men appearing on the show are currently on The Bachelorette vying for Andi Dorfmann’s heart. Once they’re eliminated, ABC will officially announce their participation. Check out the revealed cast below.

Naomi Watts Joins Divergent Franchise

In: Donovan, Movies

Have you read the Divergent books? Who did you picture playing Evelyn, leader of the Factionless? If Naomi Watts was on your list, you’re in luck. The 45-year-old Aussie has been tapped to join the Divergent franchise. She’ll appear in the next film, Insurgent, along with the final chapter Allegiant which will be split into two parts. I really hate how Lionsgate does that with all their franchises.

Watts joins Octavia Spencer as new additions to the cast. Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Kate Winslet and Miles Teller who all appeared in Divergent will return for the sequel which began shooting in Atlanta last week. You excited for Watt’s addition? Sound off below.
