Modern Family has cast Andrea Anders for a recurring role in season 6, EW has learned exclusively.
Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was positively riveted watching Christine’s husband and family talk about how uncomfortable they were watching her cuddle and flirt with Cody. What do you make of the whole Christine-Cody situation, and does her husband have a right to be upset?
JULIE CHEN: Christine’s husband has every right to be upset. In fact, he wasn’t upset enough. All I know is if I ever did what Christine did then I would be coming home to no husband at all!!! Then again Christine is a free spirit and he knew who he married in the first place. READ FULL STORY
The Arrow is going to meet No. 1 fan. The CW series is adding Carrie Cutter (a.k.a. Cupid) to season three and EW can exclusively report that Supernatural alum Amy Gumenick has been cast in the role. As in the comics, Cupid will be a lethal villainness with a dangerously obsessive crush on The Arrow. (Surely at least a few Arrow fans can relate?)
Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg created the character during his run on the Green Arrow/Black Canary comic book series. “I always loved the idea of Green Arrow having a crazed fan,” Kreisberg told EW. “When I was writing the comic book, my big goal was to create a villain who would last. Cupid has since appeared in the DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network, and to have her fight our TV Arrow is so much more than I ever could have hoped for the character.”
Arrow has been booking a slew of guest stars for season three. There’s also Glee alum Nolan Funk as Felicity Smoak’s ex-boyfriend. Plus Brandon Routh as Atom/Ray Palmer, J.R. Ramirez as Wildcat/Ted Grant and David Cubitt as Mark Shaw/Manhunter, to name but a few.
Gumenick played young Mary Winchester in flashbacks on CW’s Supernatural and was recently seen in AMC’s Turn. Expect Cupid to make her debut in the sixth and seventh episodes of the season. Arrow returns to The CW on Oct. 8, with its spin-off The Flash premiering Oct. 7. Here’s a Gumenick and some fun images of Cupid from the comics: READ FULL STORY
Party Down, Rob Thomas’ excellent show about caterers/struggling actors and other show-business types, criminally lasted only two seasons. But as of today, all of its hilarious episodes are streaming on Hulu Plus; the first five episodes are also streaming for a limited time for free on Hulu.com. There’s just one way to celebrate: By watching Martin Starr hit Ryan Hansen a bunch of times in this exclusive blooper reel. READ FULL STORY
It’s safe to assume that the characters of American Horror Story: Freak Show are…um…quirky. In this latest exclusive teaser, we meet a contortionist (Is it the same one seen in the trapeze teaser?) who’s not only quite flexible but also boasts an extra leg. Yep, a three-legged contortionist. Only in the weird world of AHS. Watch below.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Oct. 8 on FX and features Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, and Denis O’Hare.
Shane. Dale. Lori. Merle. Andrea… Need we go on? No character on The Walking Dead is ever safe. That much has been proven. But how would the still-living cast members like to see their characters go if and when their time comes? Well, there’s only one way to find out. Ask them. So I did. Here’s how many of The Walking Dead actors see their final moments on the show.
[NOTE & SPOILER ALERT: Some of these characters have already died in the comic book on which the show is based. A few of the actors may reference that, so if you do not want any clues as to who has died in the comic, then stop reading right now. But also keep in mind that the TV version often changes things dramatically. For instance, Hershel’s beheading at the prison actually happened to a different character in the comic that is still alive and well on the TV show. So things don’t always match up.] Okay, spoiler alert over. Now, let’s find out how the cast would like their various demises to go down. Also note that Norman Reedus kind of cheats on his answer. CHEATER! READ FULL STORY
