A few weeks ago, “Mad Men” held an open casting call. Anyone could submit a photo of themselves dressed ’60s-style for a chance to appear on the show. Last week, New Yorkers were invited to try out for a role in “Sex and the City 2.” The roles that needed filling were for “fashion models, celebrity types, upscale socialites, urban club goers, gays and lesbians.” Today, we heard about an open casting call in Holland for “What’s Wrong with Virginia,” a movie starring Ed Harris and Jennifer Connelly. The studio says they’re looking for “real looking people of all shapes and sizes.” [MLive] Keep reading »
In mid-August, I always start to get a little wistful about how summer is evaporating before my eyes. But then something happens to remind me of all that there is to look forward to in fall. Over the weekend, it was the September issue of Lucky
arriving in my mailbox, full of glorious fall clothes. And then today, the CW released a preview of season three of “Gossip Girl
.” Enjoy. Now we have to wait until September 14 to see the whole episode. Keep reading »
It’s no secret – we’re hooked on “Mad Men.” The characters are interesting, the style is sharp, and the dialogue is brilliant. So, who’s behind this acclaimed, Emmy-nominated series? Women! Because who knows how to depict men better than the ladies who deal with them?

Who cares about the “Saved By The Bell” reunion? Think “Saved by the Bell” sexual union instead. Yes, the folks at Hustler are hard at work on a porn parody of our friends at Bayside High: “This Ain’t Saved by the Bell XXX.” Noooo! I don’t want to see Mr. Belding call Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley, pre-“Showgirls”) into the principal’s office for a spanking. Or Kelly Kapowski perform a strip routine on a pole at The Max, seductively removing her Keds and cutoff jean shorts. Or Screech getting shoved in his locker naked! Come to think of it, I bet they could get Dustin Diamond to participate after all. Point being: I’m so excited … I mean … I’m so scared! This was my childhood, dammit!
After the jump, more ’80s and ’90s television shows we have a feeling will soon go XXX. Keep reading »
I live in a 400-square-foot apartment, yet my television is four feet wide. Hey, don’t judge me—you know you have a TV problem, too. Even though it’s gorgeous out, and you should probably be outside soaking up the vitamin D, here are the shows you’ll definitely want to catch this week. Things start off slow, but pick up thanks to Bravo and amazing new episodes of “NYC Prep” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” By Friday, it’ll be a full-out boob-tube orgy with the premiere of “Degrassi Goes to Hollywood,” (FINALLY!) “Mad Men,” and “My Antonio.” Keep reading »
The folks at HBO seem to outdo themselves with every “True Blood” episode and last night’s was no different. Basically, it was all about rescuing Sookie and Godric, who didn’t really need any assistance, from the Fellowship of the Sun people, and Maryann continued her domination over Tara and Eggs.

Stop the presses! “Twilight” won 11 awards at the Teen Choice Awards last night, and Robert Pattinson was voted “Choice Male Hottie.” Personally, I’m so tired of hearing about R-Patz and this vampy flick that I’m about to drive a stake through my heart. But, lucky for you, we’ve got the highlights of what else happened at this year’s teenybopper fest. After the jump, our fave “Twilight”-less Teen Choice moments. Keep reading »
