The Beautiful Life - Mischa Barton and Nico Tortorella
Ashton Kutcher's canceled CW drama, The Beautiful Life: TBL, will live again — on YouTube.
The network axed the series, which chronicles the lives of models, due to poor ratings after airing only two of the five episodes that were produced. Citing fan requests, Kutcher will put all five episodes on YouTube on Thursday.

"What we feel like we're doing is ...
Who better to lord over Mischa Barton and a gaggle of other wannabe supermodels than one of the beauty biz's premiere mannequins?
Elle Macpherson, whose acting career to date is perhaps best summed up with Batman & Robin (though Sirens did have its certain charms...), has landed a recurring role in A Beautiful Life, the CW's Ashton Kutcher-produced pilot about models cohabitating in a co-ed Big Apple residence.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year
There's a Rockettes-style line of dancers, 99 extras in elaborate costumes and a giant Statue of Liberty head that shoots confetti. No, this isn't a hallucination. This is High School Musical 3: Senior Year. And it's the third and final day of shooting for a dance number called "I Want It All." Set in the famous cafeteria where Broadway-loving sibs Sharpay and Ryan sang "Stick to the Status Quo" in the first film, the place has been transformed into a mini–Times Square.
"We've come pretty far from a black stage and a gold ladder," marvels Lucas Grabeel, who plays drama-club president Ryan. "It's stepped up to a whole new level for the theatrical release."
On October 24, the wildly popular High School Musical franchise will conquer the final frontier — the big screen ...
Corbin Bleu by Adam Larkey/ABC Family
For those who just can't wait for the third and final installment of High School Musical, wait no more. The cast is currently recording the soundtrack, and rehearsals for the movie are due to start in March. Corbin Bleu gave TV Guide some hints of whats to come: "It's [about] graduation, senior year, prom... all that goes into it. And theres going to be a school production as well. I have seen the first draft of the script, and [my character] Chad's got a lot to do. I think the major thing for him in this movie is he's leaving this world of high school that hes been so attached to all these years hes going to be pulled out of his element and that is a bit of a hard transformation for him."Bleu is already feeling the difference between the small-screen High School Musicals and the new motion picture. "There's obviously a bigger budget and the grandeur is on a higher scale," he says. "I know it's felt in the music, from what we've heard, and I kno...
Corbin Bleu, High School Musical
If you thought the kids from High School Musical couldn't possibly soar any higher, think again. On Oct. 8 Corbin Bleu literally defied gravity as part of the Northrop Grumman Weightless Flights of Discovery, a program designed to provide teachers with material that will inspire kids to pursue careers in math and science. When Bleu returned to earth, TVGuide.com was there to talk about his flight experience as well as the upcoming HSM3.

What they do then is move the plane in a way that creates a very, very strong force of gravity, a lot stronger than we're used to. It's like those rides where you're st

Question: I wanted to respond to your High School Musical 2 comments. Unlike Jena, I didn't mind the song-tastic start to the movie and, like you, I did mind the long songless middle. I felt that the middle was a whole lot of Teen Beat cover boy Zac Efron brooding and emoting, with not enough singing. It's when the movie finally takes an Efron break for the baseball diamond showdown between Ryan (Lucas Grabeel) and Chad (Corbin Bleu) that the movie actually gets its fun back. According to recent reports, the leads (Efron and his magazine-cover costar Vanessa Hudgens) are apparently going for more cash to return for HSM3. I know Efron and Hudgens sell magazines, but is their romance really (or does it have to be) what advances the movies? For me, HSM has always been about the peripherals, like hat-loving Ryan, food-cooking Zeke, piano-playing Kelsey and move-busting Martha. Considering the fact that youngsters will flock to Disney's mega-franchise no matter what, can't they make a third ...
Corbin Bleu, Jump In!
Corbin Bleu, who unwittingly amassed quite the following as a star of High School Musical, now has fresh Disney Channel fare to share. Premiering this Friday, Jan. 12, at 8 pm/ET, Jump In! finds the almost 18-year-old actor playing Izzy, a boxing hopeful who gets a ropeful when he begins moonlighting as (gasp!) a competitive double-Dutch ringer. (Bleu's real-life pop, David Reivers, plays his dad in the movie.) TVGuide.com asked Bleu about how he prepared for his latest Disney gig, as well as how he is dealing with the High School Musical phenomenon, which is about to spawn a sequel.
