Shonda Rhimes: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 28th 2007 1:04PM
Shonda RhimesWhen you hear the name "Shonda Rhimes" what words come to mind? I'm pretty sure those words are "Grey's" and "Anatomy." But what you may not know is that before writing gripping TV series such as Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, Rhimes also put pen to paper for The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement and -- you'd better be sitting properly on your chair before reading this -- Britney Spears's Crossroads! Can you believe that the Emmy award winner wrote that terrible and rightfully Razzie-nominated Crossroads?!?

Michael Urie: In the Limelight - VIDEO

Michael UrieOh, Marc St. James, how are you so fabulous? Do your multiple layers of plaid infuse you with superstar powers? Does hanging around all the beautiful people of Ugly Betty automatically make you awesome by association? Ah, the real fabulous answer most likely lies in the fact that fabulous Marc is portrayed by the fabulous actor, Michael Urie.

It's tough to shine on-screen when one's partner is often the ultra-glamorous superstar Vanessa L. Williams, but Urie manages to hold his own just fine. Dare I say it, he even manages to outshine her every once in a while. I guess the folks at TLC saw something in him too, because he will soon be on the channel as the host of their new reality show, Miss America: Reality Check (premiering January).

Melinda Clarke: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 3rd 2007 12:03PM
Melinda ClarkeMelinda Clarke is one of the best vixens on TV. Last Tuesday, she appeared on The CW's Reaper as the Devil's mistress. This guest starring role had a few of the TV Squad bloggers wonder what her age is (she's 38 in case you were wondering) since she looked so good and young that she could have passed for Sam's girlfriend on the show. TV Squadder Joel even said "She would have topped my 'hot over 40' list if she were just a skosh older." That got me thinking that maybe it was time to put Melinda Clarke in the limelight and let everyone know who she is and of the dominatrix roles she played!

Alex O'Loughlin: In the Limelight - VIDEO

Alex O'LoughlinI've admitted it already: I watch Moonlight. It may not be the best new series of the year but it's entertaining and has a lead character that makes a lot of female TV fans melt. Before Moonlight, I had no idea who Alex O'Loughlin was. My own curiosity added to all the comments I've read here in the past weeks about the actor, I thought it was time we got to know the new vampire on the block a little bit more.

Lee Pace: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 4th 2007 1:08PM
Lee PaceOne of the most talked about new show this season is definitely ABC's Pushing Daisies, a show about a man who can revive the dead by touching them. He uses his power to solve crimes and collect the rewards. (Learn more about the show by reading TV Squad's Comic-Con report on the show's panel.) Since Pushing Daisies is getting a lot of hype, maybe we should get to know its lead actor: Lee Pace.

Even though he only started getting roles on TV and in movies in 2002, Pace has been acting since his teenage years. He even dropped out of high school in order to perform at the local theater. He eventually got his high school diploma and studied acting at Juilliard. Upon graduation he returned to the theater world and starred in off-Broadway productions like The Credeaux Canvas.

Clark and Michael: In The Limelight - VIDEO

Sometimes the best television isn't transmitting through satellites, cables or airwaves. Sometimes the best television isn't shown on any channel. Sometimes the best television is on the internet. Case in point: Clark and Michael.

Clark and Michael is the brain child of Arrested Development's Michael Cera and Clark Duke, who can be found on ABC's Greek. The project that started as Duke's college thesis has evolved into a full season of hilarity at ten-minutes-per-serving.

Flight of the Conchords: In the Limelight -- VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 27th 2007 4:01PM
Bret and JemaineMy absolute, hands-down favorite new show of this summer is HBO's Flight of the Conchords. The show stars Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement as stranger versions of themselves, musicians from New Zealand trying to make it in big, bag America, with little to no help from their pathetic manager, Murray (the extremely funny Kiwi comic Rhys Darby). But did you know that before the Flight of the Conchords show, there was a Flight of the Conchords band? Well, you probably already knew that, but I wanted to take a moment and marvel at the comedic beauty that is the Bret and Jemaine duo.

Scott Patterson: In the Limelight

Scott PattersonIt may be unusual to devote an "In the Limelight" feature to a series regular on a popular TV show, but if you are like me, you have no idea in which TV series Scott Patterson appeared besides Gilmore Girls. You don't know if he ever was in movies or did theater work, etc.

Since Gilmore Girls is ending forever (sniff), I guess it's time we get to know Patterson a bit more as it may help us prepare for what he'll do next.

Mark Indelicato: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 10th 2007 1:06PM
Ugly BettyOne of the most liked characters on ABC's hit show Ugly Betty is without a doubt Betty's nephew, Justin. This refreshing character loves musicals, could be a host of What Not To Wear, and worships Martha Stewart. Even if he is a supporting character, the role of Justin always brings a breath of fresh air on the screen thanks to the actor portraying the Ugly Betty's youngster: Mark Indelicato.

The 12-year-old actor may not have been featured in many TV series since he began acting four years ago but he sure knows how to portray his Betty character.

Chris Lowell: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 3rd 2007 2:02PM
Chris LowellIf I had asked you back in August who Chris Lowell was you would probably have answered: "Chris who?" But about 8 months later, most of you do know who Lowell is as he is a regular on Veronica Mars. Those who don't know him will be introduced to this up and coming actor tonight on the two-hour Grey's Anatomy special as Lowell landed a role in the possible Grey's spin-off.

The 22-year-old actor from Atlanta, Georgia, attended the celebrated Atlanta International School, where he even founded the Film Program and Video Yearbook. He also studied at the University of Southern California. As it is the case for many actors, he got discovered while doing something not linked to acting at all. In his case, Lowell was discovered while playing beach volleyball.

Rickey Minor: In the Limelight

Rickey MinorAmerican Idol is a show that takes virtual unknowns and creates stars. Even a couple of judges (Randy and Simon), and a host named Ryan Seacrest became household names thanks to Idol's success.

But there's one guy of vital importance to the show who isn't so well known. Most of the time he stays in the background. But there wouldn't be any Idol music without him. He's Idol's inhouse musical director -- Rickey Minor.

Marsha Thomason: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 25th 2007 2:23PM
Marsha ThomasonLast week, Marsha Thomason made her debut on the ABC series Lost as Naomi the parachutist. Even though she didn't have much screen time in last week's episode, Thomason's role will expand in tonight's episode and is even said to drop a bombshell on the survivors. When spoilers about her role first leaked, it was said that the character would be a regular. It is unknown if she will in fact be a regular or a recurring cast member. One thing is sure, Marsha Thomason will appear in most, if not all, of the remaining episodes of the season and, if the fans respond better to her character than they did to Nikki and Paulo, she may still be around in Season 3.

Many Lost fans may wonder who Marsha Thomason is but Las Vegas fans know exactly who she is. Thomason was a regular on the NBC series for a few years until her character abruptly left the show.

Santiago Cabrera: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 23rd 2007 4:02PM
Santiago CabreraBetter known nowadays as Isaac Mendez, an artist who can paint the future, on NBC's hit series Heroes, 28-year-old Santiago Cabrera hasn't been in the business for long.

Cabrera actually shares similarities with actor Andrew Shue who, like Cabrera, wanted to be a soccer star first but ended up becoming an actor. Cabrera even played soccer for three years on a scholarship and played semi-pro in London before changing career paths.

The son of a Chilean diplomat, the Venezuela-born actor grew up all over the world. He stayed in Chile, London, Madrid, Romania, and Toronto. This allowed the actor to learn many languages such as Spanish, English, French and Italian.

Sean MurraySean Murray is probably best known for his role as geeky Agent Timothy McGee (nicknamed "Probie" and "McGeek" by one of the other characters) on JAG's spin off NCIS, airing on CBS.

The 29-year-old American actor has been officially acting since 1991 when he starred as Joe Jr. in Backfield in Motion, a TV project that also starred Roseanne and Tom Arnold.

Sara Ramirez: In the Limelight

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 9th 2007 10:42AM
Sara RamirezWhen Sara Ramirez made her first appearance on Grey's Anatomy, I asked myself who was this newcomer and why did she get such a role (note that I knew the importance of Callie before she appeared on the show since, well, I admit it, I'm a spoilers addict!).

Looking at her profile, the term "newcomer" may not be the best to describe her as she has been in the business since 1998 when she played a small part in the movie You've Got Mail, starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Then again, the term "newcomer" may be suitable as before Grey's Anatomy, Ramirez never had a major role in a movie or TV series. However, she had already made her mark on Broadway.
