A Show For Celebrity Name-A-Likes

Will I ever get sick of celeb-reality TV shows? I’m doubting it, because I am kind of fascinated by the concept for this new show, “The Same Name,” which CBS has just ordered a pilot for. The show will take normal folks who share their name with a celebrity, and have them switch places with their famous doppelganger as the cameras roll. Here’s hoping they can find a Kim Kardashian who’s a Sunday school teacher in a small town. Or at least a Heidi Montag who’s a garbage woman. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Our “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Memories


Get ready to do the time warp again, because “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is having a real moment. Next Tuesday’s episode of “Glee” will be an homage to the ’70s rock opera that still plays at midnight showings all around the country. Rachel will of course channel Susan Sarandon as Janet. Finn will be her Brad and Kurt will be Riff Raff. Apparently, John Stamos was originally going to be Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but the network wasn’t so comfortable with him signing “Sweet Transvestite.” So Mercedes will do it instead. And that’s not all. Apparently, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is in talks to direct a remake of the flick.

Since many members of The Frisky staff have fond “Rocky Horror” memories (will I ever forget the time my car broke down on the way home from a midnight screening and how awkward I felt talking to the tow truck driver while I was dressed as Columbia?), we thought we’d share them after the jump.

Playgirl Wants The Men Of “Glee”

It’s time to play another round of “How much would Playgirl pay famous dudes to take their clothes off?” Last time we talked, Vinny of “Jersey Shore” got an offer for $30K, which doesn’t stack up to the $100K that Levi Johnston supposedly netted from the mag. Now, Playgirl is after the men of “Glee.” But not just any “Glee” stud—they want Chord Overstreet (Sam) or Mark Salling (Puck). They’d pass on Cory Monteith (Finn) or Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester). A rep for the mag said they would offer Chord and Mark $100K each for a shoot, and assured them it wouldn’t even have to be X-rated. Keep reading »

Your First Look At MTV’s “Skins”

It’s the latest case of U.K. television poaching. “Skins” is a British series that’s reached cult status for taking amateur teenage actors and throwing them into controversial plot lines involving sex, drugs, dysfunctional families, and more sex and drugs. Now, MTV is making its own version of the series. Apparently, it’s pretty much a shot-by-shot remake of the original pilot. It doesn’t premiere until January, but here is the trailer. And find a second after the jump. [Hollywood.com] Keep reading »

Emma Stone And Andy Samberg Make Funnies


This week’s “Saturday Night Live” should be good. Not only is the musical guest Kings of Leon, whose new album we love, but the host is Emma Stone. This lady got her start on the VH1 reality series “In Search of the New Partridge Family.” And four short years later, she captured our hearts in “Easy A.” Maybe we needed a new redhead to fill the hole left by Lindsay Lohan?

The Situation’s Book Cover Looks Very Erudite

When I heard that The Situation had a book coming out, I would’ve bet $200 smackeroos that the cover would be him lifting his shirt up. And, big shocker, I am right. Here is the cover to Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore. Start the countdown to November 2nd, when it will be available in bookstores. Just in time for National Cookie Monster Day. Keep reading »
