If you were worried that Christopher Abbott's departure from the third season of "Girls" would leave the HBO series with a dearth of men, worry no more! Another thespian of the male persuasion has been added to the cast.
Per Deadline, "Zero Hour" actor Amir Arison has landed a recurring role as Kevin, a co-worker of Hannah's...and that's all we know. (Though we'll wager he won't wear white to work or dump the cafe's trash in a neighboring garbage can...)
Amir is the second young guy to join "Girls" after "Boardwalk Empire" star Michael Zegen, who landed an unspecified role back in June.
Natalie Morales is moving from Beverly Hills to Brooklyn as she joins the cast of HBO's "Girls" for a third season guest spot.
The actress, whom you may recognize from her turn as Liam's stalker (and Annie's shooter) on The CW's "90210," will appear in an episode of the series as "a sweet twentysomething who surrounds herself with artists and has a desire to save the world," according to TVLine. Little else is known about her do-gooder character (including whether she will or won't woe one of the "Girls" guys...).
If you like acronyms and eye candy, you'll want to fix your peepers on this post ASAP, FYI and ICYMI! Because last night was the CW, CBS and Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party, and there were herds of lovely young Hollywood folks in attendance—including some soon-to-be-famous faces from the most hotly anticipated new series coming this year from The CW. Who caught our fancy on the arrivals carpet? Oh, just some vampires and telekinetic mutants, mostly.
For starters, isn't it nice to see a cast getting cozy with each other off-set? The stars of new series "The Originals" were definitely feeling the love last night: Phoebe Tonkin, Claire Holt, Joseph Morgan and other cast members from the "Vampire Diaries" spinoff were all smiles for a nice, big group shot to kick off the party. (Plus, doesn't it look like the ladies might've made the patented BFF move of coordinating their outfits around the same sleek chic silhouette? So cute!)
Darren Criss and Lucy Hale are about to Hang Ten together—and, no, this isn't for a bizarre "Glee"-"Pretty Little Liars" summer crossover episode set at Malibu Sands Beach Club (but oh, how we wish!). No, the two TV stars will help hand out surfboards as part of their co-hosting duties at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards!
"Excited to announce I'll be cohosting this yrs Teen Choice Awards w/ the talented & charming @DarrenCriss ! See ya there !" Lucy tweeted this afternoon, followed by an Instagram of the two hamming it up with one of the ceremony's over-sized statuettes.
The show has a history of pairing our favorite stars on stage: Last year featured Darren's "Glee" co-star Kevin McHale and songstress Demi Lovato as emcees.
The Mikaelsons will be settling into New Orleans earlier than expected!
The CW announced today that "The Originals" will debut two weeks early on a special night and time: Thursday, October 3 at 9 p.m. ET following "The Vampire Diaries" premiere (which, itself, is bowing a week early). "The Originals" will then move to its usual Tuesday time slot (8 p.m. ET) on October 8.
The schedule switcheroo does mean a later debut for the network's royal series "Reign," which will be pushed back to Thursday, October 17 at 9 p.m. ET after "The Vampire Diaries."
If you were wondering when "Awkward" would return for the second half of its third season, well, wonder no more because star Beau Mirchoff is helping spread the premiere month news via Twitter.
Yep, Jenna, Matty, Tamara and Jake will be back on the MTV airwaves starting in October. You're welcome.
Bummer summer! News just broke that Disney’s “Shake It Up!” will be ending after a three-season run on the Mouse House. The final season of the show, which stars Disney’s latest breakout tween queens Bella Thorne and Zendaya, will air this summer and continue through the fall.
An air date for the final episode has not been announced yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. As the “Shake It Up!” chapter closes, the network is already lining up projects to fill the void, including the highly anticipated “Boy Meets World” spin-off “Girl Meets World” and another new show, “I Didn't Do It.”
Even with the show wrapping up its 78-episode run on the network, both stars are already lining up projects.
Manhattan, it's time you met your match.
Mere days after it was announced actress Lindsey Gort had been cast in the role of man-eater Samantha Jones in The CW's "Carrie Diaries" comes our first look at the blonde in character! And it's everything we'd expect from a 1980s Samantha—down to the belly-baring crop top and studded belt.
Producers described the young Samantha thusly (via TVLine): "Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way—and already a name for herself—in the rock ’n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC."
John Gallagher Jr. had us swooning on the last season of "The Newsroom." He's just so nice...and incredibly easy on the eyes. What's not to love, right? His adorable charm is anything but news to us. So, with the new season of the HBO series underway, we figured why not show him all the love he deserves and name him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of John, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This Wilmington, Delaware, native, 29, was raised by two folk singers, which might explain where all his artsy talent comes from. Around the same time he was making a name for himself on Broadway, he also played in a band called Old Springs Pike, but left the band to be a full-time actor.
There's drama afoot in "Ravenswood"! Although the new spin-off series from "Pretty Little Liars" won't be making its way to television until this fall, the show is already making the sort of big, bold move that would ordinarily be reserved for a cliffhanger finale, the sort that has everybody yelling about it on the internet within 60 seconds of the credits rolling.
Here's the dish: According to The Hollywood Reporter, leading lady Elizabeth Whitson has quietly bowed out and made tracks, leaving the show and her role as Olivia to Merritt Patterson, who was originally on board in the role of Olivia's BFF Tess.
