Angela Lindvall and Miss Piggy
Welcome back to Bizarro Project Runway (aka Project Runway All Stars). In this universe, the host speaks unaccented English, the mentor reminds you of your scary aunt and the judges are relatively toothless. We miss Heidi, Tim, Nina and Michael!
They've broken out the big star power for the challenge this episode: design a flamboyant cocktail-inspired red carpet dress for none other than Miss Piggy! This is the best challenge ever. Thankfully, all the designers are properly reverent, and I'm sure Oliver from last season is relieved he's not an All Star so he won't have to design for her ginormous hamhocks.
Mark Wahlberg may play a bigshot tough guy in Contraband, but comments he made suggesting he could have prevented some of the 9/11 tragedy have him apologizing.
"If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did," Wahlberg said in the February issue of Men's Journal. "There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, 'OK, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry.'"
Elsa Pataky and Chris Hemsworth
Where can Chris Hemsworth register for a Mjolnir-shaped rattle?
The Thor star and his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, are expecting their first child, Hola! magazine reports.
Silas Weir Mitchell
A reformed Blutbad, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) has cleaned up his act. So why is he still feeling the hate?
On Friday's Grimm (9/8c, NBC), titled "Of Mouse and Man," the seemingly mild-mannered Marty (guest star Fred Koehler) could be taking matters into his own hands after a history of abuse.
Christopher Heyerdahl shouldn't work on his tan anytime soon.
The veteran actor who played ancient Volturi vampire Marcus in the Twilight movies will continue to fang it up on HBO's True Blood, Deadline reports. He'll play Dieter Braun, one of the five council members of the Vampire Authority, the highest-ranking governing authority over all vampires. Braun appears relatively mild-mannered, but revels in innovative torture techniques while interrogating prisoners.
Ryan Seacrest, Mark Cuban
As if Ryan Seacrest weren't busy enough, he's starting up a new cable channel.
The American Idol host is partnering with Mark Cuban, entertainment company AEG and talent firm Creative Artists Agency to create AXS (short for "access"), a new pop culture channel expected to premiere in late spring, the Los Angeles Times reports.
As American Idol kicks off its 11th season with auditions Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox, can it continue to reign over its rival singing competitions on TV (and all other shows, for that matter)?
Although Simon Cowell's The X Factor crowns its winner in the fall, NBC's The Voice will be nipping at Idol's heels when it premieres its second season on Feb. 5 after the Super Bowl. Charismatic banter among the coaches and those cool, swiveling chairs may bring in some viewers, but the Idol crew isn't sweating it, judging from a...
Wendy Wilson, Carnie Wilson, Chynna Phillips
The Wilson Phillips cameo at the end of producer Judd Apatow's comedy Bridesmaids was perfect timing for the band, who is now attempting a comeback with a new album and a reality show for TV Guide Network, Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On, which premieres on Sunday, April 8 at 9/8c.
"We got a random phone call from Judd Apatow's people," bandmate Chynna Phillips told reporters at the network's winter previews on Saturday. "We just thought it was a real honor, and we love Judd Apatow's movies and thought he was hysterical, so we wanted to be a part of it. But we had absolutely no idea the impact our one baby cameo was going to have in this film. We were pretty taken aback and excited that it gave our careers the boost, the shot in the arm that we needed."
Liam McIntyre , Andy Whitfield
Liam McIntyre was working on the set of Spartacus the day that he learned that his predecessor Andy Whitfield had succumbed to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last fall. Whitfield first filled the title role of Starz's bloody gladiator drama.
"It's probably the saddest thing I ever had to be part of," McIntyre told critics Friday at the network's winter previews...
