Jonathan Groff, Glee
Before Glee, Jonathan Groff would have not been able to sing Adele's guttural, smoldering anthem of heartbreak, "Rolling in the Deep," which he used to swagger back onto the hit show last week. The actor, previously best known for his work in New York theatre, says it was Glee that taught him to rock out.
"The first song I sang with Vocal Adrenaline was 'Highway to Hell' and I remember calling [music producer] Adam Anders and saying, 'Maybe we should sit down with a...

Seriously Fox, you picked Running Wilde over this? Dag.
Last night, Breaking In, the show that was bumped from the fall lineup by that waste of Will Arnett, finally made it to the air and was able to do in 30 minutes what Wilde barely did in 13 episodes: Entertain us.
Set around the inter-office antics of a ...
Betty White, Robert Redford
It seems all the world has embraced Betty White — except for Robert Redford. Long the object of Betty's unattainable affections, the movie star turned down an offer to guest star on Hot in Cleveland's February 16/23 two-parter, which finds Betty's character, Elka, traveling to Los Angeles to hunt down the Sundance Kid.
Betty White says sexual desire doesn't melt away with age.
In the November/December issue of AARP Magazine, the 88-year-old says that if her third husband, Password host Allen Ludden, were still alive, they'd be spending a lot of time in bed.
James Badge Dale
Cheers to James Badge Dale for pulling a double shift on a pair of top-rank cable dramas.
Having recently wrapped his run as PFC Robert Leckie in HBO's stirring World War II miniseries The Pacific, Badge Dale has reported for duty as intelligence analyst Will Travers on AMC's intriguing new headscratcher Rubicon. As a widower still grieving over the loss of his wife and child in 9/11, he brings warmth to a series that could be a chilly homage to paranoid '70s thrillers like The Conversation and The Parallax View.

Timothy Hutton, Leverage
For Oscar-winning actor Timothy Hutton, agreeing to star in TNT's Leverage wasn't a tough decision — at least not after he read the script.
"It was a real opportunity to play a person who had these awful things happen involving his son and the destruction of his marriage — someone who needed a real breakthrough in their life," Hutton says. "I wondered how this tragedy would manifest itself in him and the choices he would make."
Look back at Hutton's most memorable roles
Hutton plays Nate Ford, the leader of a crack team of cons who use their skills to take from the rich and powerful and give back to those they've wronged. But despite Nate's noble intentions, he hasn't always made the best choices. Case in point: When Season 3 begins (Sunday at 9/8c), Nate is in jail...
