Stop us if you've heard this one before. On second thought, don't we know you've heard it so often that by now, you can't possibly believe it. Nonetheless, Will & Grace executive producer Jhoni Marchinko insists to TV Guide Online that at the end of the season, lovelorn singleton Will Truman (Eric McCormack) will finally hear those three magic words: You've got male.
What's more, as hard-up as Will is, Marchinko is determined to find him more than a boyfriend; she wants to introduce him to a truly significant other. To that end, she says that she and her cohorts are on a manhunt for "a good, interesting actor" and not necessarily an A-list sweetheart like onetime guest flirt Michael Douglas. "I don't think we're going to look for a big stunt. I always like it when somebody that used to be kind of famous [gets cast in a plum part]. That way, you can revive their career."
Buffy the Vampire Slayer has always waged an uphill battle for Emmy recognition. But now, not only does the UPN sleeper have to convince members of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences that it's more than a freak show about vampires and demons and ghouls (oh my!), it apparently must also remind the Academy that it even exists! When ATAS sent out nomination ballots earlier this month, there was a glaring omission in the list of potential contenders in the drama writing category: Buffy's sublime musical episode, "Once More with Feeling," penned punch lines, lyrics and all by series creator Joss Whedon. What the hellmouth is going on here?
Human error was apparently to blame, but an ATAS spokesperson insists the problem has since been resolved. "We sent out a notification to the voters, which allowe
Long before "Can't Get You Out of My Head" reintroduced Kylie Minogue to America, the Australian disco belle was a superstar everywhere else in the world. So why on Earth didn't her compatriot, Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann, conjure up more hallucinations featuring the pop tart as the Green Fairy? Could he possibly have been working in the absence of absinthe?
"I would have loved to have [given Minogue more screen time]," Luhrmann tells TV Guide Online, "and, actually, at one point, I was thinking that the Green Fairy might reappear.
"But," he continues, "I had to be very disciplined about subjugating all of the decadence, if you like, in the interest of telling the story."
Despite his firm resolve, the snubbed Oscar outcast
Ever since Ally Sheedy shrugged off the onus of the Brat Pack, she has taken one creative leap after another, playing everything from a drug-addled lesbian in the sleeper High Art to a transsexual rocker in Off-Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Yet the Reagan-era teen queen may never have undertaken a role quite so alien to her as that of the 1960s housewife she plays in Just a Dream, the upcoming Showtime movie that marks Danny Glover's directorial debut.
"It was different," the edgy actress admits to TV Guide Online. "I had to rein myself in and put on a wig. But it was Danny Glover, so I would've been a dog and barked.
"[On the set], he just watches you and gives you all this positive feedback," she adds. "I was in love with hi
The title characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel better brace themselves: Tonight's crossover event starting at 8 pm/ET on the WB features the much-anticipated return of queen vamp Drusilla (Juliet Landau). However, according to co-executive producer Marti Noxon, the ex-lover of Angel (David Boreanaz) and Spike (James Marsters) won't be commuting between both shows for long.
"The initial crossover shows her on Buffy, but she's really going to be populating the Angel universe," Noxon tells TV Guide Online. "That's where we're going to be seeing more of her."
Considering the winning chemistry between Landau and Marsters, some Buffy fans will no doubt feel that such news bites big time. But as Noxon explains, Drusilla's services were in greater demand on Angel. "In the Angel w
