Jessica Lange previously stated American Horror Story: Freak Show would be her swan song for the FX anthology series. Obviously, no one was a fan of that. The 65-year-old actress IS American Horror Story.
Ryan Murphy kept hope alive by telling fans he promised he’d try anything within his power to keep her for Season 5. It appears, he’s not as powerful as he thought. Lange confirmed this past weekend she was leaving the popular horror series after four seasons.
“Yes, I’m done,” Jessica said. “We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all madness, I love the writers and Ryan and the insanity of shooting it.”
Can we get a collective ‘BOO?’ All I’ve got to say is Lady Gaga better bring it, if she wants to fill the void left by the series matriarch.
As a consolation prize, producers announced two major cast additions. Both of these men have appeared in a Murphy production previously. Find out who below.
I’m sure when David Burtka got the call to appear in Funny or Die’s latest clip, he jumped at the chance. Who would turn down an opportunity to lock lips with a newly-single Cheyenne Jackson? I’m sure making out with Jackson was a nice change of pace from Neil Patrick Harris’ lips.
Burtka and Jackson star in FOD’s “The Gay Christian Mingle.” The spoof pokes fun at closeted Jesus-loving folks looking for their soul mate on ChristianMingle.com. With no male seeking male options on the dating site, the resourceful David finds a way to cheat the system. He then stumbles upon Cheyenne’s profile which features his love for the 3 Gs- God, glamor and gals. Yeah, right!!! Watch the two, along with other same-sex couples finding love below.
With marriage equality comes divorce equality. Given the rash of celebrity gay and lesbian weddings as of late, you’d think everyone was in an euphoric blissful state. Not so. Cheyenne Jackson is the latest hitched LGBT celeb to announce his split from his partner. Jane Lynch also recently announced her divorce from her wife Dr. Lara Embry.
The 38-year-old Glee and 30 Rock actor confirmed his breakup to Entertainment Weekly. “Cheyenne Jackson and his husband Monte Lapka have mutually decided to divorce,” the two said in a statement to EW. “The couple have been together for 13 years, and were married in New York state two years ago. It is an amicable parting and understandably, a private matter.”
According to US magazine’s sources, the couple have been “living separate lives” for some time now. Based on Queerty.com’s findings, it sounds like Jackson is going through some sort of mid-life crisis. He’s allegedly moved in with his new much younger boyfriend in West Hollywood. He’s also altered his look, now sporting a handlebar mustache and new “prison tattoos.” Check out his new ink below.
The last time I wrote about the sexy Cheyenne Jackson it was for his “I Don’t Wanna Know” music video, which I loved. This time, I’m writing about a cover he just did of a song I really like.
In the video below, Jackson does a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” and it’s really sweet. Steve Bargonetti is in the background playing guitar while Jackson sings. If you recall, the song was also sung by Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge and is definitely my favorite song from that movie. While whipping this article together, I also found a cover that Ellie Goulding did of “Your Song” as well. I’ve included it below, along with the Moulin Rouge version and Elton John’s original version.
Check out all four version of the song and vote on which one you like best. Enjoy!
I. Love. This. Video. It’s so cute! We already know that Cheyenne Jackson is a major heartthrob, but seeing him dancing around and flirt with all the boys takes it to another level. Earlier this month, Jackson teased us with
just the tip a clip of his music video for “Don’t Wanna Know.” Now, we’re all the way in with the full version (Get your mind out of the gutter, Patrick).
From the mailman to construction workers to a police officer, he’s got everyone’s attention after getting his heart broken by his ex-boyfriend in the video. In the song, Jackson sings, “I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / If you slept in your bed for a week / No, I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / When the scent on your neck isn’t me / It’s not fair / Why should I care / Cuz I made it clear that you’re not what I need.”
It’s such a fun video and the song is catchy too. The video features many familiar Broadway stars, including Nick Adams (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) as the police officer and Matt Cavenaugh (Grey Gardens) as his Jackson’s ex-boyfriend. The ending is kinda sad though – wah, wah. Enjoy!
Openly gay & married singer/actor/dancer, Cheyenne Jackson has just released a preview for his new music video and single, “Don’t Wanna Know” which comes out later this month. Back in May, he released his debut single and music video called “Drive“.
In this new music video preview, Cheyenne is dancing in the streets with an entourage that includes several hot construction workers (as depicted in the header photo above). In one part of the song, Cheyenne sings, “I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / If you slept in your bed for a week / No, I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know / When the scene on your neck isn’t me / It’s not fair / Why should I care / Cuz I made it clear that you’re not what I need.”
The music video was directed by Nick Everhart and the choreography (which there is a lot of) was done by Joey Pizzi. Check out the fun & sexy preview below. The single (and I’m assuming full music video) comes out on December 18. Enjoy!
NBC’s costly reboot of the campy 1960s sitcom The Munsters if finally seeing the light of day. The project was originally planned as a new series, but after the pilot was filmed, the network brass wasn’t pleased with the outcome. Instead of shelving the reported $10 million project, NBC is airing the Mockingbird Bird pilot as a stand-alone Halloween special as part of their Fright Night event on Friday, October 26.
Mockingbird Lane stars Jerry O’Connell (Herman Munster), Portia de Rossi (Lily Munster), Eddie Izzard (Grandpa/Sam Dracula) and Cheyenne Jackson (Scout Master Steve). The re-imagining of the classic show is from the brainchild of Bryan Fuller whose previous credits include Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls and Star Trek: DS9. Funny enough, Mockingbird Lane isn’t the only project Fuller is working on for NBC. He’s also in charge of bringing Hannibal Lector to television in Hannibal. Hopefully, he has better luck with that reboot than with Mockingbird Lane.
A new movie trailer has come out for a comedy called Price Check that stars the hilarious Parker Posey and the sexy Eric Mabius, whom you probably remember most from Ugly Betty.
The film follows Pete Coxy (Mabius), a guy who has found himself a house in the suburbs and a job in the pricing department of a supermarket. The job allows him to spend time with his wife and son and they seem happy, even though they have tons of debt to pay off. Then, something changes. When Pete gets a new sexy “I get what I want” boss named Susan Felders (Posey), he gets put on the executive track, his salary doubles, and in turn he has less time to spend with his family. His relationship with his boss soon crosses the line and this creates tension between his personal & professional life. It looks really good.
The film also stars Annie Parisse, Josh Pais, Cheyenne Jackson and Edward Herrmann. The movie comes out on November 16 for limited release. Check out the trailer below!
