Jaime King

Jaime King Is Tired of Being Perfect, And So Is Her Character on 'Hart of Dixie'

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 3rd 2011 2:30PM
Jaime KingOnce upon a time, whimsical, small-town dramas were The WB's stock in trade -- our screens were filled with quirky characters, snappy dialogue, forbidden romance and the trials and tribulations of growing up. After the network merged with UPN to form the glossy CW, there seemed to be an identity crisis in the netlet's formative years, and charming family tales were jettisoned in favor of the glitz and glamour of 'Gossip Girl' and '90210'.

'Hart of Dixie' signals a welcome return to form for the nostalgic WB crowd; set in the fictional town of Bluebell, Alabama, it tells the story of Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), a big-city doctor who inherits half of a medical practice in the close-knit town and must learn to embrace the human side of medicine, all while resisting her attraction to the sadly engaged George Tucker (Scott Porter), the town's golden boy.

Jaime King plays Lemon Breeland, George's fiancée and Zoe's natural Southern nemesis, and AOL TV caught up with the effervescent actress (who also happens to be a blogger for our sister site The Huffington Post) to preview the upcoming episodes. Read on for King's thoughts on Zoe and Lemon's rivalry, the juicy secrets her character is hiding, and, most refreshingly, her candid thoughts on the shallow nature of Hollywood, and how the pressure to be perfect helps her relate to Lemon.

The 'Hart of Dixie' Cast Teases Love & Catfights on Their New CW Show

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 22nd 2011 8:00PM
Let's get one thing straight about The CW's new series 'Hart of Dixie': You're not going to see the stars shilling this show at Comic-Con. Ever. (If you do, let that be a sign of the end of Comic-Con, FYI.)

While we're at it, here's another thing to know about the new series: Just because Rachel Bilson is working with 'The O.C.' creator Josh Schwartz again doesn't mean her new character, Zoe Hart, will be anything like Summer Roberts.

" Summer was definitely her own entity," she told AOL TV, nixing the idea that the two characters might be similar. Of course, they are played by the same actress, so it could feel a little familiar. "You know, you're yourself, so some of her mannerisms might match up."

She did steer clear of one thing when crafting her new onscreen persona, Zoe, a New York City doctor who inherits a medical practice in a small Alabama town. "I tried to stay away from the 'ew,' that was sort of Summer's trademark. I decided to do it with a different inflection on the word."

'My Generation' Series Premiere: The Future Is Like a Weird Blind Date (VIDEO)

'My Generation' Series Premiere: The Future Is Like a Weird Blind DateIf you happen to live in New York City (as this 'TV Squad' writer does), then the ads for 'My Generation' are fairly inescapable. They're plastered on every bus and subway car -- teaser posters featuring attractive twenty-something people, with vague yet pithy quotes below the characters' faces.

These quotes are meant to illuminate the characters' inner lives; they say stuff like, "Dumping you was the worst mistake I ever made," or "When I'm with him, I'm thinking of you," or "I'm done paying for your mistakes." It's all very intriguing; or at least, intriguing-ish.

But now, the actual series pilot is upon us, and it's time to see if it lives up to the pre-show hype. Who are these pretty young people? What is 'My Generation' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC) actually all about?

Outside the Box: Talkin' About 'My Generation'

Outside the Box interview with the cast of 'My Generation'In this new Outside the Box interview, the stars of 'My Generation' -- Jaime King, Julian Morris, Michael Stahl-David, Keir O'Donnell, Kelli Garner and Mehcad Brooks -- sat for our cameras to discuss what they were like in high school, their most embarrassing experiences there and just how awkward filming love scenes can be.

The cast told us that recreating high school life as adults wasn't as easy as it might look. King and Brooks, in particular, found cheerleading and playing full court basketball as if they were still energetic teens particularly exhausting. But reenacting school isn't all work: Everyone had good things to report about shooting the faux prom.

TV celebs touch each other's boobs for cancer research

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 30th 2009 7:01PM
Funny or DieFunny or Die has up an amusing clip starring a group of television and movie stars including Alyson Hannigan, Emily Deschanel, Kat McPhee, Minka Kelly and Jaime King in which they are at a slumber party together. One of them feels a lump on her breast and starts to panic. The issue gets resolved but not before the paparazzi show up to get some rather embarrassing photos of the group.

The sketch was co-written by King and Taryn Southern and is sponsored by Her Energy in support of breast cancer research. The entire six-part series is called "Tit for Tat." Let's hear it for amusing double-entendres.

Still, it's for a good cause and stars a plethora of television personalities (including the ever-cute Ms. Hannigan whom I've adored since her days on Buffy the Vampire Slayer), so it's worth a look even if you're just a perv who likes watching female celebrities grope each other. Video is after the jump.

Gary Unmarried: the new According to Jim

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 21st 2008 9:20AM
Gary UnmarriedAnyone who thinks that the lame, traditional, laugh-track-laden sitcom is dead hasn't seen Gary Unmarried yet. Unfortunately, I have. And I've got to tell you, it's probably the worst sitcom since the undead According to Jim first infected our airwaves in 2001. It's too bad, given the talent involved.

And when I mention "talent," I don't mean series creator Ed Yeager, who helped foist Still Standing on the American public for four years. I'm talking about stars Jay Mohr, Paula Marshall, Ed Begley Jr., and Jaime King, as well as esteemed sitcom director James Burrows. They're talented people stuck in a show that contains the same wacky plots and "setup-joke" rhythm that has led many to think the multi-camera sitcom is as dead as disco.

Gary Unmarried -- An early look

Gary Unmarried
Jay Mohr moonlights away from his regular gig on Ghost Whisperer to star as Gary Brooks in this traditional sitcom. CBS has paired Gary Unmarried with The New Adventures of Old Christine, which creates an interesting dynamic. First, you have Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a divorced woman trying to live her own life while dealing with her ex and their kid. Then you get Jay Mohr as a recently divorced man trying to live his own life while dealing with his ex and their kids.

In fact, this seems to be almost the same show, only from the ex-husband's point of view rather than the ex-wife's point of view. Husband is a bit more lax with the kids while mom is overbearing and a bit crazy. I do like that in this variation, the kids have more distinct and important personalities. In fact, Gary (premiering tonight at 8:30 PM ET) has a much wider cast altogether. Both spouses have new relationships and Gary's girlfriend has a kid of her own.

CBS gives Gary a name change - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Jul 14th 2008 10:02AM

Jay Mohr and Jaime King - Gary Unmarried... and I think it's a terrible idea. I have a small fascination with the titles of TV shows. They are never the total cause of a show's failure, but I do believe they can play a part. That's why my ears perked up this weekend when CBS ran a spot for Project Gary. At least, it looked like a spot for Project Gary, but my TV was now telling me it was for Gary Unmarried. What the heck is that?

It gave me a bit of deja vu. Suddenly I flashed back to September 2006 when I wrote a post about bad show titles, prompted by the name change of Let's Rob Mick Jagger. As you'll recall, that one became The Knights Of Prosperity, and things didn't work out so well. Not all name changes are bad. The CW changing Surviving The Filthy Rich to Privileged actually sounds like a good idea, but Gary Unmarried, no. I don't think the new name is going to sink them, but when combined with the fact that they didn't land in the safe harbor of the Monday night comedy block, I'm starting to get nervous for Gary.

Paula Marshall and CBS, trying it again

by Brett Love, posted Apr 28th 2008 7:44AM

Paula MarshallI suppose most people would lead with the fact that Jay Mohr has signed on to Ed Yeager's untitled comedy pilot for CBS. After all, Jay does have that regular gig on Ghost Whisperer. In a nutshell, Mohr and Paula Marshall play a couple that has recently divorced, after fifteen years of marriage. The funny is scheduled to arrive as we watch Mohr's character try to juggle his ex-wife, their two kids, and his new girlfriend, played by Jaime King.

That's all well and good. For me though, the far more interesting bit is Paula Marshall's involvement. I find her career fascinating. She's been on a bunch of great shows. The Wonder Years, Seinfeld, Nash Bridges (don't laugh, Nash was very successful), Spin City, Sports Night, Just Shoot Me, Nip/Tuck, and Veronica Mars, to name a few. Yet, for whatever reason, whenever she gets a starring gig, it all seems to go to hell. See Cupid, Snoops, Hidden Hills, and Out Of Practice. I don't get it. I like everything she's ever done, but it just doesn't work. So, I don't have high hopes for this production. However, it does offer a thought. It's quite possible that Paula was all set to star in a great new show for Tim Minear. Unfortunately, the sheer power of their combined abilities to kill shows sent the series itself back in time, canceling itself before the idea even came to be.
