Mindy Kaling for Elle Magazine
Elle Magazine is facing backlash in the wake of its Women in TV issue, with some critics saying the publication intentionally highlighted only Mindy Kaling's face on the cover because she isn't as thin as some of the other honorees.
Gracing the other Women in TV covers are Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel and Allison Williams, all of whom are shown in nearly full-body color shots. Kaling's picture, however, is cropped from the chest up and is in black-and-white. Check out all the covers here.
Ashton Kutcher, Charlie Sheen (inset)
Count Charlie Sheen among those who aren't fans of Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men. The former star of the CBS sitcom slammed his replacement on Twitter Sunday, instructing Kutcher to "quit barfing on my old brilliant show."
Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel
Person of Interest fans were stunned in November when the CBS drama killed off original cast member Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter. But no one took it harder than her castmates.
"I really miss working with Taraji," Kevin Chapman, who plays Carter's partner Detective Lionel Fusco, tells TVGuide.com. "She was very gracious, and we just really connected. We had a lot of fun. We'd go to basketball games together and dinners. I really miss having her around."
Postmortem: Person of Interest bosses, Taraji P. Henson break down shocking twist
Though Chapman misses his former scene partner, he's well aware of how much meaty material Carter's death has given him to play....
Gold medalist Lindsey Vonn has withdrawn from the Sochi Olympics, saying that the knee she re-injured in November will require surgery.
"I am devastated to announce that I will not be able to compete in Sochi," the alpine skier wrote in a post on her Facebook page.
Meghan Ory, Josh Holloway and Marg Helgenberger
He's a hunkier Chuck with the mad fighting skills, reckless bravado — and propensity toward angst — of Alias's Sydney Bristow. Meet TV's new Six Billion Dollar Man, Gabriel Vaughn, who you'll recognize as Sawyer from Lost. And Josh Holloway is very much the main reason to tune into CBS's Intelligence (Tuesday, 9/8c), a proficient if initially perfunctory action thriller that benefits immeasurably from its star's gruff, bluff machismo. Although a little less brooding (over a long-missing wife who might be a terrorist) would make Gabriel, and Intelligence, a lot more fun.
You can say this about voice-over actors: They love to talk. One hundred and fifty of Hollywood's busiest performers and casting agents from the often overlooked industry enthusiastically share their stories in the new documentary I Know That Voice, available on VOD platforms and at iTunes starting Tuesday.
Director Lawrence Shapiro was inspired to make the film when he saw how animated (pun intended) fans became when meeting his friend John DiMaggio, voice of the curmudgeonly-yet-beloved robot Bender on Futurama. "I'll admit it, applause is great," says DiMaggio, one of the industry's most popular and prolific stars, whose résumé also includes roles on Adventure Time, The Penguins of Madagascar and Kim Possible. But outside of fan-centric events like Comic-Con, voice actors work in relative obscurity, which motivated DiMaggio to sign on as producer. "I want my peers to get a little bit of recognition. These are some of the most talented people I know, and some of the most brilliant character actors that I know."
Aaron O'Connell and John Schneider
Should he call Olivia Pope? Jim Cryer, the cock-o-the-walk judge played by John Schneider on OWN's The Haves and the Have Nots, wants to be the next Georgia governor but that dream could be dashed if he doesn't get his clan under control. When Tyler Perry's steamy, rowdy sudser returns Tuesday (9/8c), Jim's drug-addict son, Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell), has left two people near death after a hit-and-run driving spree. That's not Dad's only headache: His bipolar daughter Amanda (Jaklyn Betham) has teamed with his favorite hooker, Candace (Tika Sumpter), in a revenge lawsuit against him. And his bitter, high-strung wife, Katheryn (Renee Lawson), who hate his guts and knows his dirt, could blow at any moment. No worries! Schneider tells TV Guide Magazine why his badass character won't be losing his cool.
