I have no words for the amount of nail-biting, live-tweeting, and screen-shotting madness that will be going down tonight. As we impatiently await the Scandal finale, I relive last year’s magic—and the magic that was me interviewing some cast members (Guillermo, Darby, Jeff, George, and Josh FTW). The only other way to get ready for tonight is with this amazing gallery of photos from the cast, compiled by the even amazing-er PITNBr Iris. THANK YOU IRIS, YOU STAY GIVING ME LIIIiiiife. And, everyone, peep the gallery for more!
P.S. You’ll see a new face in the gallery. Asante Jones now has a recurring role on Scandal. He’s also MY FRIGGEN COUSIN. But like, the special kind of cousin, where our Moms are twins so, it’s a REALLY big deal. #NBD #ReallyBigDeal
Hot for Teacher
Back in July we learned that singer/actress Courtney Love was added to the cast of Sons of Anarchy and earlier this month, we saw her at the Hollywood premiere event for the 7th and final season of SoA. Today we get to see Courtney doing actual work for the show. C. Love was spotted on the SoCal set of Sons of Anarchy this week filming her scenes for the show. As you may know, Courtney will play a school teacher on the show and in the gallery presented here, we get to see what Love looks like in character. I tossed in a photo of actress Katey Sagal, who was also spotted on set, as well because she just rules. Last night’s episode of SoA was insane! This season is so good already and we’re only 3 eps in. It would appear we have some time to wait before Courtney mades her debut on the show but she’s coming … she is deffo coming to SoA.
This year HBO‘s Game of Thrones won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction For A Contemporary Or Fantasy Series, and you’re about to see why. This new special effects reel from Rodeo FX shows some of the amazing transformations the scenes go through before they hit our screens, and it’s really fantastic stuff. For people who want to work in entertainment or movies, there’s so much beyond acting and directing—the tech stuff is, IMO, just as thrilling. Peep the video for more!

Altho we still have quite a few weeks of waiting left before the new season of Scandal premieres on ABC this fall, actor Tony Goldwyn wants us all to know that he and the rest of the Scandal cast are hard at work on the show. A fan posted a tweet asking Tony where he was at the moment and he responded with a photo that he snapped during a break on set while filming Scandal.

'The season really broke me.'
It used to be so strange watching Scandal while Kerry Washington was pregnant. At a certain point, they were literally using lamps to hide that baby bump, and it was just weird. We all know Washington is a very private person, but now that she’s had the baby she’s been opening up a bit more and more about her personal life. She recently talked about what is was like for her during last season. She even goes to far as to say the experience “really broke” her. Click inside for more.
The end is so nigh
As we get closer to the premiere of the 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX, the cast and crew of the show get closer to the end of filming production of the show. This week, the cast of SoA are still hard at work filming eps for the final season but they must be getting very close to the end. Click thru the gallery to see photos of Charlie Hunnam on his lunch break during filming of SoA this week and prepare yourselves because … the end of Sons of Anarchy is nigh. We will likely learn very soon that filming on SoA has wrapped and then, once the eps air, the show will be finished for good. Sigh.

BTW, we need to talk about 'Girls' because I'm totes watching now
For the past few years I’ve been hearing about a little HBO show called Girls and it finally happened. I watched three seasons of Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shosh—and it was insane. Everyone who has been recommending the show to me over the years kinda came at me with the , “You may love it, but you may also hate it” vibe so I really wasn’t sure what to expect but OMG… I love it. I’m sorry/not sorry but I really like the show. I’d seen Lena Dunham‘s movie Tiny Furniture before, so I sort of knew what to expect (mainly in terms of her having the most annoying voice ever… after mine… LOL), but I was surprised at how much the show really made me laugh. All that to say, I’ll be writing about Girls from time to time now and y’all are gonna have to deal with it. Click inside for more! Friggen Spike Jonze is guest starring!
Women at Work
Yesterday we saw a collection of photos of Glee actress Lea Michele on the set of Sons of Anarchy (with lead actor Charlie Hunnam) on her first day of filming her cameo appearance on the show. Today we get to see a couple more photos of Lea hard at work on the set of SoA, this time alongside actress Katey Sagal. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that Lea plays a single mother who works at a truck stop diner and as you can see below, her character will be spending a bit of one on one time with Katey‘s character Gemma.

Oh, hey! There's Charlie Hunnam, too!
Yesterday we learned from Lea Michele herself that she will be appearing in the upcoming 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX. Today we get our first look at Lea on the set of the show. As I understand it, Lea will be playing a single mother who works at a truck stop diner in her one episode of the show. Click thru the gallery to see photos of Lea in and out of her SoA costume … and as a bonus, I threw in a few photos of Charlie Hunnam on set, too. You’re welcome :)
Shondaland Thursdays are right around the corner and I am truly looking forward to dedicating an entire night of my life, every week, to the worlds of Shonda Rhimes. Between Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and the new show How To Get Away With Murder, my children are going to be really concerned about the glazed look in mommy’s eyes/they better stay their butts in bed. So, naturally, I was psyched to see this new photo Kerry Washington shared on Instagram, for all her Gladiators in waiting. Click inside for more!
