Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

UPDATE: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode.

EW has confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”

'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty IT girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. Their relationship seemed so impossible that fans started rooting for it.

But as time went on, romance didn’t seem so impossible anymore. To recap: By the penultimate episode of the second season, Oliver and Felicity have exchanged loving glances, had loaded conversations, and even hugged, but it wasn’t until the season-two finale that fans got something bigger. When Slade kidnapps Laurel in the season-two finale, Oliver hides Felicity at the Queen mansion, where he tells her that Slade is after the woman he loves and that Slade had taken the wrong woman when he took Laurel. He then tells the awestruck Felicity that he loves her. READ FULL STORY

Pornstache will not return for season 3 of 'Orange Is the New Black'

When Orange Is the New Black returns, it will be missing a little facial hair.

Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mendez—a.k.a. Pornstache—told the New York Post that he will not appear in the show’s third season. It’s not a huge surprise, considering that the last time we saw his character—spoiler!—he was being carted away to prison. But then again, this entire show takes place inside a prison, so there’s that.

Schreiber told the Post: “I’m not taking part in the third season. I’m a member of a show called The Brink that’s going to be on HBO. It’s a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I’m really excited about it.”

He went on to say that he was never a series regular on OITNB, which he is on The Brink, so really, “it’s a no-brainer,” he said. “It was a better move for me as an actor.”

That being said, Schreiber does still love OITNB, and specifically its creator, Jenji Kohan. “I feel so grateful to Orange. Jenji obviously means a ton to me. I respect her to no end. I think she writes the best dialogue on TV right now. While season three is out of the picture, beyond that is open.”

So it sounds like Pornstache could show up at a later date. As Schreiber put it, “I would go anywhere that [Kohan’s] working, and I know that our paths will cross again soon, whether it’s on Orange or on a future project.”

Schreiber later went on Twitter to calm some of the upset fans:

Reps for the show did not immediately respond for comment.

'The Vampire Diaries' adds Jodi Lyn O'Keefe and Marco James (Updated)

If there’s one thing that The Vampire Diaries desperately needs, it’s a good doctor (who isn’t a fan of torturing vampires). And considering we haven’t seen Meredith Fell in a while, season six is the perfect time to introduce a new medical expert.

EW has learned exclusively that Hit the Floor‘s Jodi Lyn O’Keefe has been cast as new character Jo, “a tough and accomplished doctor at the university hospital. She demands excellence from her students and has learned the hard way that there’s no room for error in her profession.”

O’Keefe’s casting follows the announcement that Colin Ferguson is joining the show as Tripp, the head of a community militia desperate to protect his town. So perhaps some of Tripp’s victims will be paying Jo a visit? We’ll find out soon enough, with O’Keefe first appearing in the season six premiere. There’s no word yet on how long she’ll stick around.

UPDATE: EW has confirmed that The Client List‘s Marco James will also join TVD in the season six premiere. James will play Liam, an upperclassman at Whitmore College who also happens to be a med student. The Wrap first reported the news.

The Vampire Diaries returns for season six on Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

The final season of 'Glee' will be 13 episodes

Glee won’t be returning for its final run until 2015, but it will be a shorter season than previously expected. EW has confirmed that the Fox series’ last batch of episodes will be 13 instead of the previously announced 22.

Former Fox head Kevin Reilly told reporters in May that the order for the series could change. “We need to sit down with [creator] Ryan Murphy on how to end it,” Reilly said. “The advantage of  airing it later in the season is that it doesn’t have to feel the pressure of delivering.”

First look: Yaya DaCosta as Whitney Houston in Lifetime's biopic

Lifetime’s early-2015 biopic Whitney Houston (working title)—directed by the singer’s Waiting to Exhale costar Angela Bassett and starring ­former America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta—just began shooting. But DaCosta has already re-created the iconic cover of the pop diva’s 1987 Whitney album. And her ­modeling background came in handy for the quick shoot. Laughs the star, “I just looked at the picture and did the pose!” Somewhere Tyra is smizing proudly.

First look: Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in 'Doctor Who'

Gillian Flynn's 'Sharp Objects' is coming to television

With Gone Girl well on its way to the big screen, Gillian Flynn has now set her sights on television.

EW has confirmed that Entertainment One Television is currently working to turn Flynn’s debut novel, Sharp Objects, into a one-hour serialized drama. Sharp Objects follows Camille Preaker, a reporter who leaves her stay at a mental hospital and is immediately thrust back into the world with a tough assignment that forces her to return home to cover a murder involving two preteen girls. Suddenly back in her old room, surrounded by a mother and half-sister she hasn’t exactly kept up with, Camille has to look into her own past to discover the story in front of her.

Flynn will executive produce the show alongside Jason Blum and Charles Layton. Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon will write the script and serve as showrunner.

Five things we learned on the set of 'Pretty Little Liars' 100th episode

Just 99 episodes ago, Pretty Little Liars fans were introduced to the world of Alison DiLaurentis and the four Liars she left behind when she “died.” Five seasons later, we’ve followed those Liars through journeys of love, loss, betrayal, and lots of confusion, all of which peaked when Alison came back from the dead in season four.

However, Ali’s transition back to life in Rosewood has been anything but smooth. Aria accidentally killed Shana, someone murdered Mrs. D, and we still have no idea who’s in Alison’s grave. So with a number of mysteries left to solve, what will the show’s 100th episode hold for viewers? Well, we can promise a few familiar faces, at least one familiar place, and of course, another Twitter-worthy reveal.

EW was on set for the shooting of the 100th episode, and we sat down with the cast and executive producers to talk about what viewers can expect from the show’s 100th hour. READ FULL STORY

Martin Freeman says 'Sherlock' is 'likely' to return in 2015

Sherlock.jpg

Finding a large enough gap in the respective calendars of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman so they can film more episodes of Sherlock has been no elementary task for the show’s producers over the past couple of years, given the pair’s increasingly full schedules. But Fargo and Hobbit star Freeman has told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph it “looks pretty likely” the pair will reunite early next year to shoot a special Christmas episode of the beloved Conan Doyle adaptation. “I’m speaking off-message here [but] I think that might be for next Christmas,” said the actor, who plays Holmes’ detective partner and verbal punching bag, Dr. Watson, on the show. “That’s what I understand.”
