Liz has been cast as Diana Payne and, as you can see from the photos below, she has her sights firmly planted on Chace Crawford‘s character Nate Archibald. Um, all I can say is … get it, gurl! More »
Graduation Day is Nigh
Earlier this month we learned that Glee star Chord Overstreet is being reduced from series regular to a guest starring role on the upcoming 3rd season of the show. Today we learn from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, by way of The Hollywood Reporter, that 3 of the show’s main characters will be graduating at the end of season 3 … thereby leaving the show forever. Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Corey Monteith, who played sophomores on Glee when the show debuted 2 years ago, will play high school seniors in season 3 … hence, they will then graduate off the show.

Back for Good?
Last weekend we learned that MTV Jersey Shore castmember Vinny Guadagnino reportedly moved out of the house and left the show after being involved in a major fight with the rest of the cast. It would appear that Vinny was only homesick for a quick trip home because this weekend we are hearing that he has moved back into the house and has resumed filming the show. More »
Rumor Has It ...
Earlier this month it was reported that Vinny Guardino decided to pack up his bags and move OUT of the MTV Jersey Shore house. Today we are hearing, from US Weekly magazine, that fellow castmate Mike The Situation Sorrentino has done the same. Now, I’m having a hard time believing that The Sitch would move out and give up the limelight for anything but … I suppose it’s possible he decided to bail on the show.

The Failed Wonder Woman becomes a G.I. Joe
Back in May we learned the
sad news that Adrianne Palicki will NOT portray the new Wonder Woman this Fall after NBC decided NOT to pick-up the David E. Kelley penned series … but today we learn better news for Palicki. She has been cast as Lady Jaye in the upcoming sequel film G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. More »
Someone got homesick ;(
At the start of the week we got to see the first photos of the Jersey Shore cast moving back into their infamous Summer home in Seaside Heights, NJ (after they spent about a 5 weeks filming the show in Florence, Italy the month before) and today we learn that one of the castmembers done gave up and moved OUT of the house. Vinny Guadagnino (who, sadly, never came up with a cool Jersey Shore nickname) has reportedly gotten fed up with filming and is so homesick that he decided to pack up and move back home to be with his mommy in Staten Island, NY. HMMM. More »
The Warbler is IN, Trout Mouth is OUT!
Big Glee casting news to pass along today … late yesterday it was reported that actor Chord Overstreet has been ousted as a series regular on the hit Fox series. Altho he hasn’t been fired from the show, he is no longer a series regular character … which means he’ll prolly feature in a few eps for the entire season. In happier news, actors Darren Criss and Harry Shum, Jr. have been bumped up to series regular castmembers on Glee. So when one door closes (in the face of an unsuspecting person, apparently), another door opens (for more fortunate folks). Click below to read all the deets about this Glee casting shake-up. More »
One report says, Yes! Another says, No!
A new report out today claims that MTV is planning to hire an entirely new cast of people to star in their hit reality TV series Jersey Shore once the upcoming 5th season of the show finishes taping. On the contrary, another report claims that MTV is planning to do so such thing. In just a few short weeks, the 4th season of Jersey Shore — which was filmed entirely in Florence, Italy — will air on MTV and the 5th season of the series will begin filming in New Jersey next week … so new cast or not, there is still a lot of Snooki, JWoww and The Situation to come.
