Raza Jaffrey, Jaime Cepero
Best Smash news ever? Dev and Ellis are out!
Raza Jaffrey and Jaime Cepero will not return for the second season of NBC's musical series, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Additionally, Brian d'Arcy and Will Chase have also been axed from Season 2, though...
Now that Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has been renewed for Season 14, star Mariska Hargitay wants her character Olivia Benson to find long-lasting love.
"ADA Haden (Harry Connick Jr.) made her realize that there is hope," Hargitay told TVGuide.com at her fifth annual Joyful Heart Gala. "She was so broken and in pain and devastated with the departure of Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni), that the truth is, now that he's gone I think there's room. With him there I think she had blinders on and now she's going, 'Wait a minute there's a whole other world out there.'"
Hilary Swank, Debra Messing, Glenn Close
Celebrities such as Debra Messing, Glenn Close and Hilary Swank are very excited about President Barack Obama's support of same-sex marriage.
As the former star of NBC's Will & Grace (one of the first successful shows to portray openly gay characters), Messing was particularly moved by the President's statement.

"To have the President of the United States come out and openly support equal marriage rights... and [for Joe Biden] to say that Will & Grace has done more to educate the country about gays and lesbians —it's humbling. It makes me very emotional," she told TVGuide.com at Mariska Hargitay's Joyful Heart Foundation Gala in New York.
Check out what else Messing, Close and Swank had to say about marriage equality:
Vice President Joe Biden gave a nod to same-sex marriage on Sunday's Meet the Press and credited Will & Grace for changing public opinion.
While Biden declined to comment if President Barack Obama will change his position from supporting civil unions to same-sex marriage if they win a second term, Biden said he's "absolutely comfortable" with it and that the issue is "evolving." He then cited Will & Grace — the most successful prime-time show with a gay lead.

Question: Do you think it is possible that CBS will cancel Unforgettable, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY? I really like all of them and I am hoping this won't come true. — Linda

Question: I watched the first episode of Smash this week and I enjoyed it. I like the cast, the music and the dancing, and the overall "Broadway" feel of the show. I just can't find myself going along with what is apparently the central idea of the show, which is that Katharine McPhee would make a better Marilyn than Megan Hilty. Really? Don't get me wrong, I love ...
Here's hoping Megan Hilty doesn't have a complex... For months, NBC has been touting Smash as that new show starring American Idol's Katharine McPhee when in fact she is one of two actresses in the series whose characters are vying to play Marilyn Monroe on Broadway.
"...and introducing Katharine McPhee!" "Watch this specially filmed music video of Katharine McPhee singing 'Beautiful'!" And just take a gander at the poster, nicknamed Mount McPhee by one of the Idol alum's co-stars: It does her co-stars like Debra Messing no favors (is she about to fall off?). Anjelica Huston just barely squeezes in.
So is it safe to assume that McPhee's Karen Cartwright gets to play Marilyn?
