In 2010, Brian Austin Green played a big part in a wedding, marrying Megan Fox. In 2012, he will play a fun part in another wedding… on Happy Endings. EW has learned the 90210/Sarah Connor Chronicles vet will guest-star in the season finale of the ABC comedy as a charming dude who winds up attending the nuptials of Penny’s other gay best friend Derrick (Stephen Guarino). The tricky part: He’s not in the best physical condition. The juicy part: He’ll be flirting hard with Penny (Casey Wilson). READ FULL STORY

'Happy Endings' cast talks tonight's 'Smackdown,' upcoming antics, and a possible visit from Jack Bauer
In tonight’s episode of ABC’s disturbingly addictive Happy Endings, the gang becomes entwined in the “5th Annual Spring Smackdown” — an event so inane and ridiculous that it requires t-shirts. The gist is this: Every year, the perpetual slob Max (Adam Pally) comes out of winter hibernation when the show’s married couple, Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Jane (Eliza Coupe), get into a domestic squabble. Only this year, things don’t go quite as planned. “It’s really funny, because we kind of have it where it looks like we’re fighting from our friends’ point of view, but we’re actually just saying really nice things to each other,” Wayans explained. This leads to a variety of misunderstandings, and hilarity, as always, ensues.
EW was on set with the gang in Los Angeles last week, and if one thing became clear, it was who would win an actual Happy Endings cast Smackdown: Coupe, a woman so raunchy and brazen that most of her hilarious interview was too inappropriate to post on this family-friendly website. (Just picture a lot of talk about threesomes with Michael Fassbender). Still, EW was able to get the scoop on exciting things to come, as well as the cast’s thoughts on babies, Kardashians, and future guest stars. MILD SPOILERS AHEAD! READ FULL STORY
Tonight, James Wolk (Lone Star) begins his three-episode arc on ABC’s Happy Endings as the former, then current boyfriend of Adam Pally’s Max. The exes have an unexpected reunion in this evening’s Valentine’s Day episode when Max picks up a couple in his limo and one of the passengers is Grant (Wolk), who Max broke up with last Valentine’s Day because he wasn’t ready for a serious relationship. “The character was pitched to me like, ‘Grant’s perfect, right? Unlike Max, he wears perfect vest-tie combos, he always says the right thing, everyone embraces him.’ But ultimately, Grant, like many of us, tries to project this perfection, but deep-down he’s flawed,” Wolk says. ”One of the really funny things on this show is that everyone kind of disses the significant others that people bring in. Max’s whole thing with Grant was that everybody was gonna really like Grant.” READ FULL STORY
Colin Hanks is going from a killer drama to a killer comedy: The actor who played an apocalypse-obsessed serial murderer on Dexter‘s sixth season will guest-star in an episode of Happy Endings, EW has learned. The body count should be considerably lower on the ABC comedy, as he tackles the role of… Colin Hanks, a new celebrity friend of Dave (Zachary Knighton). What brings Hanks into Dave’s world? The Steak Me Home Tonight truck has become a Chicago hotspot boasting designer drinks. READ FULL STORY
'Happy Endings': Megan Mullally and Michael McKean share some shocking news in tonight's episode! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Happy Endings isn’t afraid to embrace the weird and/or the wacky (see: the Halloween episode, any other minute of the show). But a scene that was shot for the season premiere apparently went a few steps too far into Bizarroville, as Casey Wilson played current-day Penny as well as a geriatric version of Penny and — well, maybe it’s for the best if you hear it from her:
“It was a real look into my future,” she told EW. READ FULL STORY
ABC is giving out some happy endings.
Fairy tale drama Once Upon a Time is among three shows which just landed a full-season pickup at the network. The order is a bit unusual since only two episodes have aired, but Once is ranked as the highest-rated new drama of the fall, averaging 12.3 million viewers and a hearty 4.0 rating among adults 18-49. Plus, Once held onto its strong Sunday night premiere rating in Week 2 despite facing increased competition — and that’s very rare.
Here’s two more shows getting nine more episodes from ABC: READ FULL STORY
No need for vengeance, Revenge fans, the ABC drama just received a full season order.
As we predicted after Wednesday night’s ratings reversal, ABC has ordered nine more episodes of the show, giving the drama the full 22-hour boat. Last night the show averaged 7.9 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the adult demo, just barely edging out CSI to win the 10 p.m. hour. The show has been fighting with the CBS veteran every week since it premiered. But whether in first place or second in the hour, ABC is happy with any show that stays out of third — finding new 10 p.m. dramas has been tricky for the network the past few years. Plus, Revenge gives ABC another on-brand soap to join its ranks along with Desperate Housewives (which is on its final season) and Grey’s Anatomy.
ABC has also added a full season order to the new comedy Suburgatory, which stars Jeremy Sisto as a father raising his teenage daughter after moving out to the suburbs. And six more scripts of Happy Endings got the green light as well.
Happy Friday, friends!
I’ve had a long and exhausting week trolling the sets of your favorite shows in rainy (but completely lovely) Vancouver, and it’s paid off. Not only have I walked away from my travels with a new love for all things (and people) Canadian, but I come back to my motherland with plenty of TV bounty.
And before you dig in, remember to send me your questions about everything you’re watching. From the highly acclaimed (Good Wife?) to the pleasantly culty (Vampire Diaries?), I want to hear what’s on your brains.

System failing. Too much TV. Abort! Abort!

That said, I need your help.

DEXTER REVISITS THE PAST IN AWESOME PREMIERE
Last season of Dexter ended with the door open for anything to happen. Lumen lost her darkness and left, Dexter had taken down the season’s villain, and there was even a small note of optimism on his part that he could one day live without his own darkness following him.
On Oct. 2, we pick up with Harrison starting pre-school and Dexter very much at peace with his darkness. And, dare I say, enjoying it again.
Without ruining too much (because I honestly felt incredibly psyched by the premiere and want you to experience it for yourself), much of the episode centers around Dexter tracking down a potential victim at his 20th high school reunion. There, we not only get a great picture of who Dexter was as a high school student, but also get a good laugh out how his classmates perceive him now. (He’s… popular!)
We’re also introduced to Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos’ demented characters. I can happily report that the first murder they are responsible for is one of the most disgusting ones I’ve ever seen on the show. Congrats, newbies! READ FULL STORY
