Will Chase on Bringing Bombshell to Broadway and the Whereabouts of Debra Messing’s Smash Scarves

Gersh New York Upfronts Party

Any Smash fan who spent two seasons following the progress of a fictional musical about Marilyn Monroe has to wonder: What the hell happened to Debra Messing‘s scarves? Famously reviled by TV fans, the show cut down on the cozy accessory in season two, but sadly never made it to a third. In hopes of cracking a Hollywood mystery for the ages, VH1 spoke to Will Chase, who played Michael Swift, the on-screen fling to Messing’s Julia Houston. Read more…

Talkin’ Nashville Conspiracies, Hashtags, and Spinoff Ideas with Will Chase

 

Will Chase Nashville

Will Chase, who plays Luke Wheeler on Nashville, has an unenviable role on the show. Brought in as Rayna James‘s boyfriend-turned-fast-tracked-fiancé (the wedding is in December, y’all!), he moseyed on in between Rayna (Connie Britton) and her ONE TRUE LOVE, Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten). Those of us who have been rooting for Rayna and Deacon to finally reunite might have been a little disappointed when uber-famous, seemingly issue-free Luke swept Rayna off her feet and promised her a perfect celebrity relationship (Ruke? Layna?) and a stable home life — something Deacon could never offer. Chase recently spoke to VH1 about the fan reaction to Luke (“I’ve been getting a lot of ‘Puke Wheeler’ hashtags!”), that amazing ’90s ponytail he donned in a flashback scene, and the buddy-cop spinoff he wants to make with a certain co-star.

What Should Nashville Do About Hayden Panettiere’s Real Life Pregnancy?

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals
Ah, Nashville. We watch you for the great music and Connie Britton‘s luminescent skin, but we continue to tune in to see how you’ll one-up yourself in terms of ridiculous plot lines. Seriously, what can you possibly add to a nighttime soap opera that’s already featured a country star in a coma, a fake miscarriage made more convincing with pig’s blood, and a murder-suicide carried out in order to prevent a sex tape from leaking? The only two possible answers here are a) a pregnancy of dubious paternity or b) the arrival of a heretofore unacknowledged evil twin.

Lucky for us, Hayden Panettiere is pregnant in real life, and her character, Juliette Barnes, had some drunk sex with evil Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the nasty record label exec who is most definitely not her boyfriend — how could she cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson)??? He became so likable! — so we’re definitely getting a pregnancy this season; it’s been confirmed that her pregnancy will be written into the series. We are thrilled for Hayden in real life, but also, way to give us the next amazing plot twist on the show, girlfriend!
