New Girl's Max Greenfield recently added awards-show host to his résumé, emceeing the 12th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, which honors people who help L.A.'s homeless land jobs. Here are five other things he's doing on his summer break.
Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton and Chloe Bennet
At the 3rd Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, actors celebrated last season's best series — and looked ahead to the shows they're planning to program on their DVRs.
Michael McMillian and Anna Camp
Holier-than-thou horndog Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp) was last seen on HBO's True Blood as a minister's cheating Mrs. back in 2009. When the crazed character reappears in Bon Temps on June 30, we'll learn "she's written a best-selling book about what it means to be a Christian fighting vampires," Camp says. "And she's working her way into politics, because she's craving more power and fame."
That ain't all she's craving.
With Fox's The Following on hiatus, Natalie Zea is headed Under the Dome this summer — and perhaps beyond. Zea, who plays The Following's Claire Matthews, has been cast in a continuing role in the CBS summer series, which ...
Judging solely by the title Mistresses, you might assume that the four leading ladies of ABC's new primetime soap play man-hungry home wreckers. Not so fast! Alyssa Milano (married attorney Savannah "Savi" Davis), Yunjin Kim (psychiatrist Karen Rhodes), Rochelle Aytes (widowed shopkeeper April Malloy) and Jes Macallan (Savi's realtor sister, Josslyn) want you to know there's a lot ...
In between shooting movies, producing TV shows, owning a restaurant, earning a master's degree in Chicano studies and promoting her charity and L'Oreal cosmetics (I'm exhausted just writing all that!), Eva Longoria recorded the voice of a new character who will appear on Fox's The Simpsons next season.
Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould
The writers of Modern Family haven't yet begun plotting next season's stories, but already I have scoop on the premiere episode. The ABC sitcom is planning to shoot new opening credits to show how the cast members, especially the child actors, have changed.
Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is well aware of fan speculation that Don Draper's wife, Megan (Jessica Paré), will be murdered on the June 23 season finale of the AMC drama. Tongues started wagging after the May 26 episode, in which Megan wore a T-shirt with a red star — the same as that worn by actress Sharon Tate in a 1967 Esquire article, two years before she was stabbed to death in L.A. by members of the Manson Family.
Sally Struthers, Jean Stapleton
As the world mourned Jean Stapleton this week, I was reminded of the sadness I felt in the fall of 1980 when it was revealed on CBS's Archie Bunker's Place (the rechristened All in the Family) that Stapleton's Edith Bunker had died suddenly of a stroke. Stapleton's TV daughter Sally Struthers (Gloria) shares memories of her onscreen mom, who passed away May 31 at age 90 of undisclosed causes.
April Bowlby, Barbara Corcoran
Popular Shark Tank panelist Barbara Corcoran can invest in and reject companies with ease, but how does she fare in her first acting role, playing herself on the July 7 episode of Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva? "I spent five to six hours memorizing my script," she says, "and I still flubbed my lines."
