Kerry Washington, Watch Your Back! Jennifer Hudson Is After Your Job

Are we a little too Scandal-obsessed this week? Sorry, we can’t help it. But also, neither can anyone else. On the Daily Show Thursday night, Kerry Washington said it was astonishing how often real Washington insiders confessed how much they identified with the show’s story lines. And earlier this week, Jennifer Hudson starred in a Funny or Die spoof, “Scandalous,” sponsored by the White House (for the Affordable Health Care Act). When we sat down with Hudson, we asked whether she wanted an actual guest role on the ABC hit.

Why Orange Is The New Black Needs Some Natasha Lyonne-Jason Biggs Scenes

It’s a testament to the engrossing nature of Orange Is the New Black that it basically never occurred to us that the show features TWO American Pie stars. Jason Biggs, as incarcerated onetime drug mule Piper’s (Taylor Schilling) fiance Larry, and Natasha Lyonne, as the prison’s junkie philosopher Nicky Nichols, didn’t have any scenes together in season one, and it’s hard to imagine why they would so far. But after we saw them interact on the red carpet of the PaleyFest: Made in New York OITNB panel on Wednesday night, we are starting a petition to make Jenji Kohan contrive to put them together.

Scandal Burn List: 7 Snappiest Quotes From “It’s Handled”

scandal2

People are unhappy with each other in D.C. Also in the fictional D.C. Though we suspect real-life D.C. wishes they had a nice sex scandal on their hands right now instead of a shutdown. At least on Scandal, everyone is equipped with precisely calculated zingers, courtesy of Shonda Rhimes and company, to help them talk through the pain. And ouch, no one was safe during last night’s season three premiere. Here are our favorite quotes, and the people burned by them:

Can The Originals‘ Charles Michael Davis Steal Vampire Diaries Fans’ Hearts?

At this point, our Vampire Diaries-loving hearts are torn into tiny little pieces. First we were divided between Stefan and Damon, which was really hard enough. Then, we met Elijah Mikaelson, the mildly threatening but ultimately reasonable member of the Original family. Then came the deliciously dangerous Klaus, who almost stole us away from all the others with his soft side. Now that Klaus has his own spin-off, The Originals, debuting tonight at 9 pm ET on the CW, we’re getting one more rival for our love: Klaus’ offspring/friend/adversary Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). And oh man, his smile is almost as seductive as Damon’s eyes.

Olivia Pope Blushes! Kerry Washington Says She Can’t Keep A Secret

Olivia Pope, fixer of the world, mistress to the president, daughter of some kind of CIA honcho, does not seem like the type to blush easily. Which is why I was so amused when Scandal star Kerry Washington hid behind her purse adorably when all I did was compliment her phenomenally expressive face. That scene in Django Unchained when Jamie Foxx walks in and surprises her? An epic poem in a single look. So, I wondered, is there any emotion that’s actually hard for Washington to portray?

Does Blair Underwood Age? Sort His Roles Through The Years

View Photo Gallery

Blair Underwood stopped by Very VH1 today to make us swoon talk about his new NBC cop show, Ironside, and we seriously had to consider the principles of mathematics. Because, seriously, this guy is 49 years old? Is he some kind of vampire? Well, if you watch the Spreecast, you will get a sense of his maturity, but we think it’s pretty hard to tell his real age from project to project. Check out the photos from some of his memorable roles above and see if you can sort them into chronological order. Answer key after the jump.

Baby Wait! Can You Guess These Celebrities By Their Bumps?

bumpmain

Every time we turn around, it feels like we’re in the midst of another baby boom — IRL and in our celebrity-watching lives. We were just recovering from the births of Prince George and Princess North West when we started counting down the days until we meet the new offspring of Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Kevin and Danielle Jonas and more. We’re not sure if any of these babies is destined for royal titles of their own, but in the meantime, they’re making their mamas look like queen bees. How well do you know these famous bumps? Test your knowledge in this little quiz:

Blair Underwood Stops By Very VH1 To Answer Your Questions!

If you’re too young to have crushed on Blair Underwood during his days as hotshot lawyer Jonathan Rollins on L.A. Law from 1987-1994 (we are too, but we loved the reruns!), you could have lusted after him on Sex and the City (as Miranda’s sexy neighbor) or In Treatment. Er, sorry. Not to downplay his considerable acting talent! Don’t tell him we objectified him when you join us on the Very VH1 Spreecast this Wednesday at 4:15 pm ET (1:15 PT). Instead, ask him all about Ironside, his new series premiering on NBC Wednesday night.

Happy Birthday, Anna Camp! Here Are All The Reasons We Want To Be Your BFF

Anna Camp
We feel so lucky to live in this era of comedy where the hot chicks aren’t relegated to sitting in the corner and looking pretty while the boys get all the funny bits. Instead, ladies like Anna Camp get to deliver jokes, throw themselves into slapstick and have real dialogue — while still looking foxy as hell. That’s probably why we have a feeling that Anna and us would make great friends. She would give us hair advice, get the cute boys to come to our tables and still be willing to get onstage to sing the entire TLC catalog with us at our bachelorette party. She’s just totally game for things like that. Or, well, here are things she’s done to make us think so:

Michael J. Fox Show, We Have Your Spinoff: The Wendell Pierce Show!

If you missed yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Wire and Treme vet Wendell Pierce, you must have very warm legs right now — the rest of us got the pants charmed off of us. (Sorry!) We could basically listen to his voice for hours, which is why we’re thrilled that he co-stars as Michael J. Fox’s newsroom boss Harris Green on The Michael J. Fox Show, which premieres tonight with two episodes tonight at 9 pm ET on NBC. And that’s also why we were thrilled when a fan (OK, it was me) asked: What would “The Wendell Pierce Show” be?
