Man Crush: Chris Wood

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!
chris-wood

The other day I re-watched arguably the best Girls episode ever. The one where Hannah and the girls headed to the faux Hamptons and Shoshanna went all Medieval on all their asses. I didn’t think anything could ever top the Bushwick episode but this definitely did.

An added bonus of this episode gave us the gorgeousness that is Chris Wood. He was one of Elijah’s (Andrew Rannells) friends. I’ve had my eye on this stud since he first appeared on The Carrie Diaries during the show’s second season.

Wood is a 2010 graduate of Elon’s acclaimed music theatre program. His other television credits include Major Crimes and Browser. Prior to dabbling in television, Chris played Melchoir in the national tour of Spring Awakening and Joe Hardy in Damn Yankees at Paper Mill Playhouse. Check out several photos of Chris below.

Archie Comics just got a little more gay-friendly. Back in 2012, the publication introduced Riverdale’s first gay teen character, Kevin Keller and now they’ve hired openly-gay Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa as their first ever Chief Creative Officer. Aguirre-Sacasa is a playwright, screenwriter, and comic book writer best known for his work for Marvel Comics and for the television series Glee and Big Love. He recently wrapped the zombie miniseries Afterlife with Archie.

“I just love the characters. I started reading Archie comics when I was a kid, and I’ve just kind of…never stopped. I mean, there was definitely something appealing about how idyllic Riverdale was, and how ‘wholesome’ all the kids were/are — much more so than me and my friends — but I always had a sense: There’s depth and darkness there, too. And an edge, especially in the older stories. I guess I always wondered what was happening between the panels.” – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

As part of his new duties, Roberto is penning a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch series. In addition, he was instrumental in bringing Lena Dunham to the fold. The Girls creator has been tapped to write a four-issue Archie miniseries scheduled for 2015. Reportedly, Dunahm’s story will follow Archie and the gang when they run into a new reality show filming in Riverdale. Check out the first illustration below.

“I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that l kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang,” Lena Dunham said in a press release. “It has so much cultural significance but also so much personal significance, and to get to play with these beloved characters is a wild creative opportunity.”

Lena Dunham Heads To Saturday Night Live

In: Donovan, TV Shows

On March 8, Lena Dunham makes her Saturday Night Live debut. I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. Perhaps SNL’s hilarious Girls parody featuring Tina Fey is why I’m confused. Remember Fey playing Blerta, the older ‘girl’ from Albania? Epic. I wonder if the NBC show will do another spoof now that they have Lena at their disposal.

Joining Dunham as the night’s musical guests are The National who are also breaking their SNL cherry that night. The group snagged a 2014 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album. Their documentary Mistaken For Strangers hits theaters during the last week of March. Relive Fey’s Girls spoof below.

The other day, Miguel’s contribution for Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do surfaced. Today, we have a previously unreleased gem from Lily Allen. The British pop-songstress obsesses over her man on “L8 CMMR.” Contributing to the HBO series was a no-brainer for Lily. Here’s what she told Rolling Stone about her involvement.

“I think the show is brilliant, so it was more or less a no brainer for me,” Lily Allen tells Rolling Stone. “Greg Kurstin, who produced and co-wrote this track with me, played a few of the new tracks for a friend of his who works on the show. Apparently [music supervisor Manish Raval] loved the songs, and later came back to Greg asking if he could include one of the tracks in an episode.”

If you’re a fan of Allen, you’ll love the new song. Based on the tracks released by Jenny Lewis, Miguel and Lily Allen, the second Girls soundtrack is shaping to be a fantastic compilation. Check out Lily’s latest below.

Like last year, Girls has an accompanying soundtrack to go along with the current season. Some of the show’s finest moments are synonymous with specific tracks. Who could forget Hannah doing cocaine while Icona Pop played in the background or Marnie joining Hannah in a dance to Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” It’s a little odd the album release didn’t coincide with the premiere of Season 3. I’m sure it was strategic but whatever the reason, we’re only a week away from the official release of Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do.

One of the tracks I was looking most forward to was Miguel’s contribution. I’m a huge fan of the “Adorn” singer and apparently so is Lena Dunham. She sought out the R&B singer specifically. Along with making the current season more upbeat, enlisting Miguel was another savvy wise decision by Lena. The end result is a gritty ballad where Miguel’s smooth vocals ooze over the seductive beat. Definitely give “SimpleThings” a listen below. I can’t wait to see exactly where this song ends up on the HBO show.

Jennifer Lopez Debuts ‘Girls’ Featuring DJ Mustard

In: Donovan, Music

After her third EDM collaboration with Pitbull failed to live up to its predecessors, Jennifer Lopez is wisely going a different musical route for her upcoming 10th studio album. Not to be confused with the Chris Brown-penned “Same Girl” she teased last week, “Girls” is a collaboration with Los Angeles-based DJ Mustard. The production is slick, sexy and laid-back. Jenny from the block is back and better than ever.

“At the end of the night, girls just wanna have fun/ ‘Cause we don’t really care,” J.Lo sings on the track. Don’t forget the gays as well, Miss Lopez. We like to have a gay old time as well. The collaboration came together when DJ Mustard tweeted out “Yo somebody tell @JLo I got some bangers waiting for her !!!!!”, to which La Lopez responded “Where they at?” Check out the fruits of their labor below.

HBO Renews Girls For Fourth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-4-renewed

If you can’t imagine life without seeing Lena Dunham’s titties on your television, you’re in luck. Even without airing an episode, HBO revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that they’ve greenlit Girls for a fourth season. I’m hoping their bullish decision is based on the quality of upcoming episodes. IMHO, it suffered a sophomore slump. Meanwhile, the network announced Boardwalk Empire would end after its fifth season this Fall.

I can’t say I’m all that surprised with the network’s decision to renew Girls. Despite mediocre ratings, the “comedy” garners plenty of press and watercooler buzz. To boot, it’s earned multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Just like Sex and the City, plenty of press show up for the Girls premiere party. Everyone wants to see what the girls are wearing. Much like their SATC counterparts, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jemima Kirke and Dunham, whether intentional or not, tend to dress like their on-screen personas. Williams is the stunning ingenue with Dunham usually in an unflattering ensemble. Check out what they wore for this year’s premiere below, along with the previous two years. Sound off on which girl has the best style in the comments section.

Girls Adds The Boys To Official Season 3 Artwork

In: Donovan, TV Shows
girls-season-3-poster

Happy endings are so overrated. At least according to Lena Dunham. The official Season 3 poster for Girls has been released with the tagline, “Happily Whatever After.” I don’t need it to be a laugh a minute, but something perkier than last year’s extremely somber vibe would be nice. After all, it’s technically a comedy.

For the first time ever, HBO includes the show’s boys in the poster. You’d never see the Sex and the City gals with their men on the promotional artwork. Those bitches wanted the spotlight all for themselves ;) I have to say, I like that Hannah (Dunham) and crew are joined by Adam (Adam Driver) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky). My only complaint is that Elijah (Andrew Rannells) isn’t featured. He should get some attention now that he’s returning after The New Normal’s cancellation.

Season 3 of Girls will premiere with a special two-part event on Sunday, January 12th at 10 pm on HBO. Following that, the highly-anticipated new gay series, Looking premieres. I can’t wait.

What do you think of the poster? I love the whole 4 am disheveled after a major rager look? Don’t you? Sound off below.
