Just in time for the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special — where we hear one male resident of Rosewood is going to die! — we’ve brought the Weekly Hotness poll back from beyond the grave. And we’re pretty sure this election has more undecided voters than that other one set to go down in two weeks. Are you hot for teacher Ezra, a.k.a. Ian Harding, and his sensitive literary style. Or does Caleb’s (Tyler Blackburn) lethal combination of bad-boy rep, computer smarts and sculpted cheekbones get you where it counts? Did the “BetrAyal” devastate you and your Toby-loving (Keegan Allen) heart? Or are you rooting for Dr. Wren (Julian Morris) to step in and steal back Spencer or Hanna? (Regardless of where your loyalties lie, you have to admit it’s weird that Wren is still single.) We’ll be back tomorrow with more ways help you make your decision — along with plenty of OMGs over tonight’s ep — but in the meantime, enjoy this extensive gallery of the four rather Pretty boys. And vote! Poll closes Friday at 8 a.m.
Now that Klaine are splitsville on Glee (temporarily, we hope!) we’re looking forward to seeing what kind of transformations Kurt and Blaine go through while coping with their emotional distress. And hoping that means at some point Darren Criss will bring back the gel-less “Broccoli Head” look he sported at prom. We were reminded of what a nice change it is to see guys sport their natural curls on Saturday night, when Bruno Mars ditched his usual pompadour for a bushier ‘do as the host and musical guest on SNL. Maybe that was partly due to the fact that it made no sense to sculpt his hair ever so carefully just minutes before stuffing it into a wig. But we’d also like to think this is part of a new trend. Free your locks from their stiff product prison, gentlemen! Ring in the new era of curl!
We were going to credit Darren with this trend at first, but then we spotted a few Tumblrs dedicated to the adorable Mr. Mars (who made a pretty decent comedian this weekend, if you ask us). Turns out, the very week that Blaine was forced to go natural at prom, Bruno also sported curls at the Met Costume Gala. Spooky! (Not really.) Read more…
There was a while when The Vampire Diaries did its best to keep us just as torn between Salvatore brothers as Elena herself was (and Katherine before her!). We were equally in love with Stefan’s sweet nature (not to mention those perfectly sculpted shoulders), as we were with Damon’s wry humor and piercing eyes. Not so much, anymore. Elena said she chose Stefan once and for all last week — but her rationale was super shaky. She chose him because he would have saved Matt first, whereas Damon would have ignored her wishes and saved her? The path of “good” can only take you so far, hon. By last night’s “Memorial,” we were convinced that Kevin Williamson, Julie Plec and company are going to spend a lot of time building the case for Elena to change her mind. Here’s how:
1. Oh, god, that scene of Elena drinking his blood nearly gave us a heart attack. The chemistry between Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder CANNOT be hidden.
2. Damon’s no longer the voice of unchecked impulses but of reason. “Vampires eat people. It’s part of the natural food pyramid,” he says. Stefan’s so intent on protecting Elena from his own “Ripper” fate, he’s blind to the consequences. Read more…
In the Arrow pilot, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was none too pleased to see his little sister Thea sneaking into his grown-up party and being ogled by his pal Tommy. Someone should tell him to relax — Willa Holland’s 21 after all. But the doe-eyed beauty has aged very little in character years since she first played Marissa Cooper’s little sister Kaitlin on The O.C. in 2006. Two years later, she was corrupting Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl. In an interview with the New York Daily News, she laughed about the fact that she’s still playing a rebellious high-schooler after all these years.
“I think that at 21, I still look like I’m 17 years old, so I feel like I’m going to be playing teenagers for a while, and that’s a very relatable stage in a teenage life for a female — that kind of rambunctious stage,” she told the paper.
We’re looking forward to seing how Thea fits into the life of her vigilante brother and possibly shady mother on Arrow. At the same time, we’re also waiting for the theatrical release of Tiger Eyes, the adaptation of the classic Judy Blume novel, in which Will plays Davey a girl coming to terms with the violent death of her father.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos of the many teenage years of Willa Holland:
Last weekDancing With the Stars first All-Stars season said a not-so-shocking goodbye to Pamela Anderson and her sexy wriggle. Looks like the riffraff is disappearing quicker than usual, and everyone knows the competition is stiff. Let’s continue breaking down the good, the not-so-bad and the ugly from the dance floor and see if we can predict which DWTS alums stepped it up enough to stick around another week.
Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd
Although it was Sabrina Bryan & Louis Van Amstel who scored the highest routine of the night by pulling the first 9 from the judges this season, Switched at Birth hottie Gilles Marini (don’t you dare mock my ABC Family programming obsession) showed a little more cleavage than his former Cheetah Girls competition. Man Boobs > Sparkly Lady Cleavage = Gilles Wins All The Points. Shirtlessness aside, his excited, high-kicking jive was made all the more impressive since he strained a thigh muscle practicing. Many thanks to ABC for conducting part of Gilles interview while he was pantsless lying on a physical therapy table. What say you, Bruno Tonioli? “You’ve got the coiff. You’ve got the cleavage. Let the good times roll!” Indeed. Score: 24.5/30
OK, this is probably a coincidence, but it’s one we can’t ignore: Less than two days after our own Kate Spencer asked stars on the Emmys red carpet to sing their favorite TV theme songs, Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Guys With Kids performed their own medley of classic TV tunes. So, it was ostensibly inspired by the fact that Fallon sings the theme song of Guys, which he also co-created, and this performance was clearly planned well in advance, judging by the choreography and cleverly arranged order of songs. But we can’t help but be delusional and pretend we inspired this brilliance.
Above, you have Fallon, Anthony Anderson, Zach Cregger and Jesse Bradford singing the themes from The Jeffersons, Happy Days, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved by the Bell, Cheers, All in the Family, The Greatest American Hero (our personal fave) and more. And below, Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris, The Amazing Race’s Phil Keoghan, Girls’Alex Karpovsky and others sing songs from shows like Gilligan’s Island and The Brady Bunch. It’s apples to oranges, but we encourage you to enjoy both masterpieces. Read more…
Kat Dennings might strike you as your run-of-the-mill filthy-mouthed, Christina-Hendricks-looking sitcom star (you know, one of those!), but she wants to be clear that, in addition to being really, really, ridiculously good-looking in the new issue of GQ, she is also a weirdo. “I don’t think I’m a weirdo in a bad way, there’s just a lot going on in my head,” the 2 Broke Girls star explained. “Though I think if I could put my finger on my exact weirdness I’d be able to change it.”
Oh, so Kat’s quirky! We know another sassy brunette who already has the corner on that mark…”I hate that damn word!” Dennings allegedly shouted at her interviewer when the ‘Q’ word came up. “Quirky is what a guy would call a girl he doesn’t understand.” Oh, we like her. In all honesty, we even think Kat rocks those bangs just as hard as Zooey Deschanel. Possibly even harder. No one tell Zooey D. that, though, or some day when we least expect it we’ll get a ukulele smashed over our skull.
Time to take those Cosby sweaters out of storage and call up Dave Coulier to see if he’s free to play a wacky uncle (he is), Snoop Dogg’s new sitcom is headed to your living room soon. Snoop Dogg is slated to play the father in a new family sitcom for Warner Bros. TV, though we imagine they’ll probably have to edit out any useful life experience Snoop would bring to the role: the ins and outs of pimping, what to do when the pigs try to get at you, etc. You know, basic dad stuff.
Snoop has already ruled the roost in his reality series Snoop Dogg’s Family Hood and was recently cast in the biopic The Legend of Fillmore Slim. We hope every episode of his show features Snoop’s kid getting in trouble, only to accidentally listen to the album where his dad brags about doing the exact same thing. Katy Perry can be their Wilson!
Fifteen years after starring in his self-titled hit Fox sitcom, Martin Lawrence’s new TV show is reportedly in the works. According to Vulture, the Death at a Funeralstar is in negotiations with CBS for a new sitcom. Once the star decides on a project, he will sign on to both star in and executive produce. Thank goodness; we’ve been yelling “Damn, Gina!” for years, and kids under the age of 16 have no idea what we’re talking about!
Lawrence’s Martin left the air in 1997 after five excellent season of Bruh-Man, Mama Payne and, our personal favorite, Pam. In the meantime Martin has been seen mostly on the big screen in films like Bad Boys II and Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins. Won’t it be nice to just slip into a fabulous wig and neon-pink fanny pack rather than a fabulous wig, fanny pack and fat suit a la Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son? Don’t tell us there is no way Sheneneh will be in Martin’s new show. Let us dream a little while longer.
It looks like Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management sitcom is officially a go, and in a move more surprising then the fact Charlie still has most of his font teeth and hasn’t been buried alive in the desert, Sheen will be the show’s straight man. That’s right: he’ll play the Adam Sandler role. According to the show’s official statement, Sheen will try to suppress his inner epicness in order to portray “a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man [who] is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself.Ã¢â‚¬Â Two And A Half Men‘s Jon Cryer must be kicking himself for not leaving in a huff and snagging this role, which seems perfect for him. Then Cryer must be quickly apologizing to himself for his outburst and going back to ironing his socks.
As Sheen said in his statement to EW, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I choseAnger Management because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept. It also provides me with real ownership in the series, a certain amount of creative control and the chance to be back in business with one of my favorite movie producers of all time, Joe Roth.Ã¢â‚¬Â Roth has previously directed Sheen in Major League, and is probably as surprised as anyone that Sheen will be attempting to play a normal.
