From a cocaine bender to a Q-Tip blunder, it's been a dark and twisty season for Hannah Horvath and her "Girls" ... and boys. (I mean, we'll have that Adam-Natalia sex scene burned into our brains forever...)
While we have no idea how the season will conclude on Sunday night, we did speak with a man who has some insight: executive producer Judd Apatow.
"I'm very proud of the season finale," Judd said by phone earlier this week. "I co-wrote it with Lena [Dunham], and you know, the last three episodes are almost like a three-part mini-series. I think it has a beautiful ending, and I think people are really going to like it."
Here's a royal decree we hadn't expected: "The Selection" pilot has cast British actor Ben Aldridge in the role of Prince Maxon's little brother, Prince Rafe, according to a report from Deadline.
Why is this news so surprising? Well, because in Kiera Cass' dystopian novel, upon which The CW series is based, Prince Maxon is an only child. This addition is the first major delineation from the source material we've seen thus far, and we're curious how this little brother—who, according to Deadline, "loves his country and takes his leadership role seriously...but does have a secret"—shakes things up at the palace.
While "The Vampire Diaries" writers have never treated anyone like they were sacred, we were pretty shocked when Elena's brother, Jeremy, was killed off last month. It was a pretty gutsy move for the show to make—considering he was the only person really keeping the vamp from showing her fangs.
When MTV News' Tami Katzoff spoke to writer/producer Jose Molina about the earth-shattering decision to off Jeremy, he explained why little Gilbert was the character that just had to go, leaving us with Steven McQueen withdrawals.
"You never kill off a main character without giving it a lot of thought, but one of the things I always loved about 'TVD' as a fan was how fearless it was. When I joined the show this season, I wanted to keep the stakes as high as ever, and it felt like Jeremy's death would have the most impact," he explained. "Not that it was remotely a unilateral decision on my part —it was one that Julie and the writing staff made together—but I personally felt like it was a good move, and I'm very happy that I got to pull the proverbial trigger!"
"Awkward" fans should get hyped for season three. Beau Mirchoff explained that when the show returns to MTV this April, love will definitely be in the air.
"Matty and Jenna have had this opportunity to really know each other and kind of start this relationship and kind of deepen their relationship," he told MTV News this week. "He's finally open with his relationship with Jenna, which he hasn’t been in the past. So you're gonna see Matty being romantic and happy with his situation.That’s kind of one of the most prevalent changes from the first two seasons."
If you weren't tweeting about the Pope or "Veronica Mars" today, it's likely few paid much mind to what you had to say, because those two topics were BLOWING UP the Twittersphere.
After news broke on EW.com that a "Veronica Mars" movie could happen if fans donated to a $2 million Kickstarter campaign, the internet rallied. As of this writing, more than $1 million has been raised towards that goal—and in mere hours!
Among the celebs tweeting their support was actress Krysten Ritter, who had a role on the series as Gia Goodman.
The takeaway from what you're about to see? Never, ever, ever question the legitimacy of Nina Dobrev's butt-stomping skills—lest you end up taking a beer stein to the head.
Alas, this lesson comes too late for Conan O'Brien, who had the audacity to tell Nina during her guest appearance on his show that, y'know, she just doesn't seem like much of an ass-kicker. He's gotta be hurting today; Nina and her traveling tag team of stuntmen went bananas on their host, until the "Vampire Diaries" star hurled him bodily through the wall.
If you hear any vague, weirdo tabloid reports today about Zooey Deschanel having maybe once slept with a werewolf, don't be surprised: They probably started right about here, with the TV Guide exclusive news that Dylan O'Brien, of MTV's "Teen Wolf," has been slated for an upcoming guest appearance on "New Girl." (Typically, the gossip mongerers will have gotten it all wrong; Dylan doesn't even play a wolfman on our show! Pffft. Rumors.)
Dylan will play opposite Zooey in a flashback episode, which will go back in time to revisit the moment at which each member of the "New Girl" cohort gave up their V-cards.
Citizens of Illea: Bow to your Queen.
Deadline is reporting that The CW's revamped "Selection" pilot has crowned its newest monarch. British actress Louise Lombard, who you might recognize from "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," will play regal Queen Amberly in the dystopian series, based on Kiera Cass' debut novel.
Set in a war-torn nation formerly known as the United States, "The Selection" follows teen America Singer (played by Yael Grobglas) as she competes against 34 girls from various castes for the affections of sheltered Prince Maxon (played by Michael Malarkey) and the title of Princess. (As well as follow in the footsteps of Queen Amberly, who gained her own royal appointment through the same "Bachelor"-style competition.)
We've still got more than a week to go until the highly anticipated season three finale of "Pretty Little Liars," but ABC Family has already made a place for the series' season four premiere on its lineup.
The network announced today that Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hanna will return to Rosewood on Tuesday, June 11 at 8 p.m. Along with "Pretty Little Liars," the new drama "Twisted"—a murder mystery starring Avan Jogia—will debut that same night at 9 p.m. (Sounds like the perfect complement, no?)
Yes, okay, so the government officials of "Delirium" are hateful, horrible fascist freaks who want to scalpel out our Feelings Lobe and make the world a loveless place. We know this! But hey, if they all look like Senator Hargrove, then...well, at least we understand how their brutal policies might have become popular in the first place.
Lauren Oliver, who penned the books that the show is based on, announced on her blog today that the gorgeous Michael Michele has been cast in the role of the Senator.
