Joy Behar keeps busy with her morning talk show The View, but the comedian and television personality is now on her way to hosting a brand new show on Current TV. Behar revealed to media outlets during a press conference Tuesday that she chose the network because it’s a platform where she can talk about anything, including politics. Sure enough, she also revealed dead or alive, who she’d love to interview and why the phenomenon ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ did nothing for her.
“I thought it was kind of a boring book to tell you the truth,” she admitted. “No, because I knew I couldn’t get through it because it was too boring,” she added when asked if it helped her relationship with husband Steve Janowitz. “After the first 40 shades it starts to get tedious.”
Well, perhaps the book did nothing for her, but she is focused on what she’ll bring to the table for viewers in her latest gig. Her first guest will be Al Gore, but she’s also thought about people she would have loved to interview, dead or alive. Her choices? The talented screenwriter Nora Ephron who just passed away in June, Mel Brooks and President Barack Obama.
Divergent are ecstatic to see the film version coming in March 2014, and actor Miles Teller is right there with them. Over the past few months, the 26-year-old actor has been posting a varity of photos from set to his Twitter feed. From a co-star signing books, to showing off the bad injury he endured while playing the sly Peter, we can’t get enough of it!
“It’s Divergent cast photo shoot day. #PeterIsAModel,” he tweeted June 10 along with a photo of the production schedule. Previously writing, “First look at Peter’s wardrobe shhhh….. #divergent,” showing off a handwritten signature on a piece of clothing.
Miles plays the at times ruthless nemesis of Tris (Shailene Woodley), who will keep surprising you all the way through Insurgent. Oddly enough, Woodley actually played his love interest in the 2013 hit The Spectacular Now.
Check out some of his Divergent photos below:
There was this one time when a sister told another sister to read Divergent and she took forever to do so but when she did she got through it in three days. Of course it would have been more like one, but a girl has to work, ya know? Almost done with Insurgent, I can’t be more in lust (love) with Four, and I’m assuming neither can you. Theo James plays the character from Veronica Roth’s bestselling young-adult novel, and we can’t help but think the obvious: he’s going to be the next big thing.
The 29-year-old actor has a few credits from past work, including Underworld: Awakening, Golden Boy, andDownton Abbey, but his A-list status will soon be arriving once the first film of the series hits theaters March 2014.
Portraying the love interest of Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Shailene Woodley), Four will easily be compared to the likes of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and either Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) or Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), but we would like to think otherwise. Four doesn’t throw bread to help out a fellow classmate or literally shine with glitter in the light. He’s tatted, has an intriguing backstory, and is Dauntless.
If you haven’t already, start reading. And try not to be like that girl who’s been trying to delay finishingInsurgent because she isn’t strong like a Divergent. Don’t worry, Four will be returning soon once the third book hits shelves October 2013.
So many television reunions took place at the ATX Television Festival over the weekend, with a very special one coming from the cast of American Dreams! The series abruptly ended back in 2005, but luckily fans got the chance to see the cast reunite during their panel. Not to mention, the audience finally got to check out (for the first time ever!) the ending of the series! In a huge surprise, fans got the extra treat in watching how Meg and the rest of the Pryor family turned out with the never-before-seen 10-minute footage.
So, what would the finale have looked like? Taking place three years later, Meg (Brittany Snow) returns after running off with Chris (Milo Ventimiglia) and reveals she’ll be attending Woodstock with Sam (Arlen Escarpeta) and (Roxanne (Vanessa Lengies), who just so happens to be married to Luke (Jamie Elman) with a kid in New York.
But the tears come a bit later.
Meg eventually ends up back at her childhood home to see JJ (Will Estes) and Beth’s (Rachel Boston) child, Trip, playing in the backyard. Her dad Jack (Tom Verica) comes out and after some hesitation asks if she’s hungry. She walks in to hug her mother with the radio blaring in the background. A clip from Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon can be heard before the credits roll.
With an ending like that, fans will probably question all over again why such a show had to say such a premature goodbye.
Here at Ology, we love to get inside the heads of our favorite actors and figure out just what went into making our favorite moments of our favorite shows. It’s a game we like to play called Three Scenes, where the people behind the characters explain–in their own words–the story behind some of their biggest moments on the show. Here, Graceland’s Manny Montana shares his favorite scenes of the freshman series.
Best Table Read
“It would have to be the pilot. It would have to be the pilot episode because in networks they’ll have these table reads and they’ll say its no big deal and it’s just a read through but that’s complete bullshit. [Laughs] I’ve heard stories of people getting replaced after it. You kind of have to bring it!”
“I would say it would have to be either Episode 8 or 9. And without giving away too much I had to go to a place that was kind of hard for me to go because he has a meltdown. He has a meltdown and he’s trying to get people to get along and to show how good we have it. And he just gets into it with literally everybody in the house. And it’s funny because it’s out of love all that anger.”
Most Memorable So Far
“My most favorite scene is Episode 2 I think. We have this beach scene and it was the first time we were all together as a full complete cast. We are on the beach and no bullshit, in the morning there were rewrites and they give it to me like, ‘Here, we are going to do this tonight.’ And I’m like, ‘Shit!’ The scene is at a beach in beautiful Florida…it’s my favorite because of the visual part of it but also because we are all together for the first time.”
Nick Lachey may have reunited with 98 Degrees, but one thing is very different about touring now compared to back in the day: he’s a first-time dad! With being a parent to son Camden along with wife Vanessa Minnillo, the 39-year-old singer is going through quite the transition. But though scheduling may be hectic, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
“It changes everything in your life. The way you think about things, your perspective on things, the way you schedule things,” he tells me of being a new dad. “Then I get off stage late and we have a record signing till midnight and you come home and unwind, you get in bed at 2:00. When he gets up at 7:30, he doesn’t care what you’ve done the night before. He’s ready to eat.”
Adding, “So everything kind of gets shifted and you have to learn to manage your time and balance schedule a little better than maybe we did in 2001 on our last tour. But it’s an awesome experience to be out here on the road with my family and to be able to still have him be a part of my life and me be a part of my life. He’s changing so much on a daily basis. I can’t imagine not being there to see all that. So it’s pretty cool having him out here with me.”
Lachey and the band recently performed on the Today Show along with New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men.
If you’ve been waiting not so patiently for the premiere of Graceland, then you aren’t alone! The brand new USA Network series is finally airing tonight after being held back for a year. What should be considered the grittiest series from the network so far, the new drama gives a glimpse into the life of top agents of the DEA, FBI, and Customs going undercover on a beachfront in Southern California. Unofficially known as Graceland, the secrets and lies that surround the city are nothing compared to what lies within the house itself.
Starring Aaron Tveit as Mike Warren portraying the fresh face cop and Daniel Sunjata as his superior, we recently chatted with Manny Montana who rounds out the cast of characters as the comedic relief (for now).
The twists and turns may catch your attention from the start, but the huge shocker in the very last scene of the pilot will make you realize that there’s a lot more to Graceland than you first anticipated.
Finally, this show is premiering! The show has been holding off for a year.
MANNY MONTANA: That’s so funny that you asked about that because I talking about that last night. It’s been like a year long process of waiting. We did the pilot in March, right up to a year now. There’s been a lot of anticipation because you know when you do something that you’re really proud of you want people to respond to it and you want to see if you are going to go for another season. So it’s been a little hectic but with all the promotion it’s been a lot of fun.
Graceland is a real place. Is there anything else about the series that is based off reality?
Only the house name is the true story. It actually housed agents there from like 1993 up to 2003, or something like that. So in that sense its true. It’s a real surprise on why it didn’t work out. There was so much drama in the house. So much of it is just so far-fetched.
Your character Johnny seems like the comic relief, but like everyone else, it definitely seems like he has his own secrets.
Johnny in the pilot—he comes off as kind of the relief and he goes out and helps with the chasings, but honestly he’s so much more than that. He’s the heart of the house. He wants everyone to get along. In Episode 3 or 4 he goes undercover and he starts getting into people’s drama with like Charlie and Mike. With the more people lying to him he starts getting into it with them. Its like a brother and sister fight. You’re going to fight and argue and say a lot of mean things but at the end of the day you love each other.
There are so many twists and turns just from watching the pilot. How will the biggest secret revealed at the last scene of the episode translate throughout the season?
Every episode it just changes! [Laughs] We get new scripts and we’ll be like, ‘Are you f-cking serious?’ It made us even prouder of the show though because everyone who’s seen the pilot or people [in the media] who have seen a couple of episodes are asking for the twists and turns as well. And we keep telling them you have no idea. It doesn’t even start twisting and turning until after 5 or 6. It just gets way deeper. It’s so dramatic. No other disrespect to other cop shows out there but come on. Everything is wrapped up at the end of the day and there’s always this elaborate crime in 30 minutes. Our show is much more serialized. You have to watch like Episode 2 to see what happens in Episode 5 or 6.
That’s when you know you may just have a hit. When even the cast is shocked during the table reads.
We have this text party line with the whole cast. [Laughs] We are always texting each other just so everyone knows what’s going on. First off, we just love each other. We are always texting each other like, ‘Did you see what happened in this?’ ‘Yeah, did you see what your character is doing?’ It’s just fun.
