Kristen Bell In A New Showtime Series, Joseph Gordon-Levitt In “The Dark Knight Rises”

Oh, Hollywood. Even as it’s sleeting and grey-as-can-be outside, you have brought some news that makes it seem as if it were a bright sunshiny day. First, I am very excited to hear that Kristen Bell, who I adored on “Veronica Mars,” may be headed back to the small screen in the Showtime series, “House of Lies,” which has been greenlighted for a pilot. Kristen will co-star with Don Cheadle in the series about two competing corporate management consulting firms as Ivy league grad, Jeannie Van Der Hooven. Hello, Serena Van Der Woodsen. [TV Squad]

Also exciting: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks for a role in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Keep reading »

Minka Kelly To Be One Of “Charlie’s Angels”

The television reboot of “Charlie’s Angels” is very close to being cast. Annie Ilonzeh of “General Hospital” will play Kate. Rachael Taylor, now Callie’s obstetrician on “Grey’s Anatomy,” will play the youngest of the threesome, Abby—a Krav Maga wunderkind and the daughter of a Wall Street con artist who picked up many of his tricks. But it’s the third of the Angels that I’m most excited about. Minka Kelly, aka Lyla Garrity of “Friday Night Lights,” aka Derek Jeter’s girlfriend, is close to signing a deal to play Marisa, a former U.S. Marine who is a weapons expert and totally OCD. These three, combined with the powers of “Smallville” creators Al Gough and Miles Millar, could actually add up to good television. [Huffington Post, TV Line] Keep reading »

Snooki Regrets Vinny Shoving His Watermelon In Her Pinhole

“I kind of wish me and Vinny didn’t try and have sex, because it was just drama this whole season. And I don’t know, it was just awkward between us and then I felt stupid because … you’ll see, it’s just embarrassing.”

Snooki tells “The Morning Mash Up” that she wishes she hadn’t hooked up with her guidotastic “Jersey Shore” roommate. Don’t be embarrassed, Snooki. Friendships with benefits are seriously confusing. In better news, Snooki says things are going great with her new dude, Jionni LaValle. I feel good about it too since he hasn’t tried to milk her for all the fame she’s worth. [People] Keep reading »

Lauren Alaina May Be Your Next “American Idol”


Last night, “American Idol” unveiled its first real frontrunner, Lauren Alaina. The 15-year-old Georgia native was inspired to sing by her cousin Holly, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor three years ago. (Heartbreaking story alert!) Lauren, who was described a “beyondo cute” by Steven Tyler (who also may have been referring to her when he said the judges found “the one”), first sang Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All,” which made judge Jennifer Lopez cry. Then Lauren sang her favorite song, Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” (convenient!), pointing at Steven Tyler to join in. The judges were clearly enamored with her and while I think she has a very good voice, I don’t know, I didn’t find her to be particularly special or different. PopDust also points out that Lauren suffers from an affliction faced by many an “American Idol” hopeful — the insistence on smiling through the entirety of an audition, “to ingratiate [themselves] with the judges,” even if the lyrics to the song they are singing are downright depressing. It’s annoying, but maybe no one else cares. [PopDust] Keep reading »

Guest Star Bonanza: Katy Perry On “HIMYM” And LuAnn De Lesseps On “Law & Order”

It’s a big day for guest star news. First, “How I Met Your Mother” fans have another pop princess to look forward to on the show. Like Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Mandy Moore and Nicole Scherzinger before her, Katy Perry will be appearing in an episode of the show, as a rare breed—a woman who actually piques Barney’s interest. Which means, she’s presumably not the titular mother. I’m starting to think I’m waiting for Santa Claus here. [NY Post]

Meanwhile, LuAnn de Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of New York City” has landed a role on “Law & Order: SVU.” Keep reading »
