"I'm a crybaby, so I express every emotion with tears," says the Springfield, Illinois, native. "But they would've been happy tears — I would've been bawling because I was so excited."

In only her second season on SNL, she's been promoted from lowly featured player to heir to the throne coanchor Seth Meyers will vacate when he leaves to host NBC's Late Night early next year. "Cecily's had a meteoric rise, as opposed to my molasses-like one," quips Meyers.
It's almost literally a dream come true for Strong, who...
Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
One of Elementary's stars is misbehaving. No, it's not Jonny Lee Miller, aka Sherlock Holmes, who is currently upside down on the hit drama's Queens set, doing handstand push-ups to get the blood rushing to his brain so he can remember the huge chunk of expository dialogue he needs to spit out.

In the HBO documentary Seduced and Abandoned (debuting Oct. 28), Alec Baldwin travels to the Cannes Film Festival with director James Toback to pitch an Iraq-set romance and is repeatedly told he can receive only a limited budget because he's now considered a TV star, not a movie star.

Jonny Lee Miller and Laura Benanti
Life goes on for Laura Benanti, who's bounced back from the cancellation of her NBC sitcom Go On (and her NBC drama The Playboy Club before that). In addition to her recurring roles as Danny Pino's estranged wife on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Mark Feuerstein's hospital colleague on USA's Royal Pains — not to mention the Tony winner's upcoming turn as the Baroness in NBC's live production of The Sound of Music — she's landed a guest-starring gig on CBS' Elementary.
