Work of Art
After all the studio flirtations, scatological subject matter and soggy breakdowns, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist crowned its second season winner Wednesday night.
[WARNING: The following interview reveals the winner and details from the finale.]
In her final exhibition challenge, Iranian-American painter Kymia Nawabi created an installation that examined the concept of what comes after death through detailed drawings, amplified with textured paints and accompanying burial sculptures. She beat out performance artist Young Sun Han and figurative painter Sara Jimenez to win a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum in addition to the $100,000 cash prize. Not bad for a waitress with only $50 to her name.
Busy Phillips, Edwin Hodge
Ten-hut! Cougar Town has enlisted a new man to win Laurie's heart.
The ABC comedy has cast Edwin Hodge to play Wade opposite Busy Philipps' Laurie, TVLine reports. Wade is a soldier stationed in the Middle East, so expect Travis (Dan Byrd) to get involved to teach the long-distance lovers how to Skype.
Chaz Bono and Jennifer Elia
Chaz Bono may have proposed on TV, but it doesn't look like he'll be walking down the aisle anytime soon.
The reality TV star and his fiancee, Jennifer Elia, have broken off their engagement and are no longer dating, TMZ reports. No reason was given for the split.
There's much to like in the new trailer for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, but just as much to baffle and intrigue as well. We'd expect nothing less from the director of Inception (and this of course explains the mini Inception cast reunion in this film).
The story takes place about eight years after the events in The Dark Knight, and Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is returning to Gotham from who knows where. There are lots of Escher-esque stairs involved though.
Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard
Jessica Lange and her longtime partner, actor and playwright Sam Shepard, have split, People reports. Oddly enough, the couple went their separate ways sometime in 2010, but kept the news quiet until now.
"They both are pursuing independent lives," a source tells the magazine.
David Giuntoli may play homicide detective Nick Burkhardt in NBC's fairy tale-tinged crime procedural Grimm, but in real life, he's not that stoic when faced with corpses — especially the fake ones used on the series.
"I'm not usually easily disturbed, but I've walked on the set and been absolutely disgusted to my core," he tells TVGuide.com. "I'll always remember where I was when I saw this specific crime scene [in 'Danse Macabre']. There were rats crawling out of the stomach, out of the mouth of a corpse. The corpses, the prosthetics are so real that until you touch them, your brain doesn't understand that it's fake. It's terrifying. There's a lot of eating lunch in my trailer far, far away from the morgue set."
Chuck is sending in Rebecca Romijn to do a man's job.
"We created a character originally that was just going to be a man, sort of an ominous, scary figure who has a penchant for torture, which he considers his art form," co-creator Chris Fedak says of the former supermodel's guest role on Friday's episode (8/7c, NBC), "Chuck Versus the Curse." "But then we started thinking about it, we were like, 'What if Rebecca Romijn was this guy? That would be scary and sexy.'"
Jane Fonda is heading to cable.
The two-time Oscar winner will join the cast of Aaron Sorkin's new HBO series about the cable news business in a recurring role, TVLine reports.
