We’re huge fans of the Divergent series around here and we could not be more excited. *deep breaths*

Frankly, I really didn’t need to host yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry, the stars of next year’s Vampire Academy. It was all about watching the co-stars-turned-BFFs giggle with each other, pretend to be office drones at my boss’ desk, and say hi to their fans across the globe. But I’m selfish, and I really did want to join in on their fun, so every once in a while I got to ask a question of the girls who play a vampire princess and her vampire-hybrid best friend and bodyguard-in-training. The pair were at their most adorable when talking about their own friendship — starting with their tale of meeting at the audition, and how Zoey had to play guardian right away and drive Lucy home.
I don’t know about you folks, but I’ve been dying to see Vampire Academy make the leap to the big screen for a good five years now, ever since I first imagined Rose and Dimitri under the spell of that locket. Mmmm. Oh, did I just write that in public? Ahem. Anyway, St. Vladimir’s most promising students, Zoey Deutch (Rose) and Lucy Fry (Lissa) are stopping by Very VH1 on Thursday at 3 pm ET to answer all those questions about the movie that have building up since you first fell in love with the sweet vampire princess and her fierce half-vampire bodyguard/BFF.

We had a great chat with Blair Underwood on Very VH1 yesterday, during which the actor chatted with us about his new NBC drama, Ironside. Our favorite moment was learning how Blair actually researched his role on LA Law in the 80s by spending time with President Obama…way before most of us knew who he was. Check out the amazing story in the clip above.
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.
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.
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?
“To be honest with you [the Game fandom] hasn’t stopped. My fanbase has followed me over here, they want to see more of me as Daryll.” That’s what Ray Donovan star Pooch Hall told us on the phone last week. If that’s the case, then we know you’ll follow him to our Very VH1 Spreecast today, where you’ll be able to chat with the actor, who plays Jon Voight’s boxer son and Liev Schreiber’s half-brother on the Showtime drama, live — and see that gorgeous mug of his. Tune in right here at 2 pm ET/11 am PT, and be sure to click on those speech bubbles up top to write in your questions and join the conversation.
Maybe you know him as cigar-smoking, good-humored, oddly named Det. Bunk Moreland from The Wire. Or hardworking trombone player Antoine Batiste on Treme. Soon enough, you’ll be recognizing Wendell Pierce as Michael J. Fox’s newsroom boss on The Michael J. Fox Show. But today, you’ll know him as our very special guest on the Very VH1 Spreecast.
Join us at 1:45 pm ET right here and ask Wendell everything you’ve been dying to know about his shows, his Broadway work, growing up in New Orleans, working with Michael J. Fox and more. Click on the comments button on the upper right corner to participate.
What will we do about Syria? How can we prevent another government shut down? Will Blue Ivy get a little brother or sister soon? OK, maybe Jay Pharoah won’t be able to answer for Hov and the president for real, but that won’t stop us from asking him when the Saturday Night Live star stops by our Very VH1 Spreecast today at 1 pm ET. Watch in the player above and click on the comment icon in the upper right corner to join in live!
We want to know SNL will be like without Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader this year. And which of the new kids is getting hazed the most? Who is he most looking forward to spoofing? But you probably have even better questions. We’re counting on you!
