Jessalyn Gilsig of 'Glee' Celebrates Her Only Fan (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted May 26th 2010 4:00PM
Fan appreciation doesn't come easily for Jessalyn Gilsig, who plays Will Schuester's wife Terri on 'Glee.' However, kind words from a single young fan made playing the universally-despised Terri all worthwhile, she said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

'Glee' Star Jessalyn Gilsig Talks Madonna, NPH, New Directions & More

Jessalyn GilsigJessalyn Gilsig is known for playing the bad girl, the beeyotch, the woman you just don't want to mess with. Think about it: 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Heroes,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Boston Public' and now 'Glee.'

But changes are in store for Terri Schuester -- looks like it's really truly over with the once conniving, hysterically pregnant Mrs. Schue and her better half, Will. She's seen the light and is supposedly turning over a new leaf ... and, most importantly, she'll finally get to join in the singing and dancing fun.

I caught up with Gilsig to talk dream guest stars, new relationships and all the juice on the much-anticipated final nine episodes of the season -- including the big Madonna episode and a Sue Sylvester moment she says will "go down in history."

Before They Were Stars: The Cast of 'Glee'

by Audrey Fine, posted Apr 13th 2010 6:00AM
Jane LynchThese days the cast of 'Glee' is everywhere; peering at us from magazine covers, rolling eggs on the White House lawn and chatting with Oprah.

They've become such media darlings that it's hard to believe we'd never even heard of most of these actors till the show debuted last spring and made them overnight stars. In fact, for some, like Amber Riley [Mercedes], Chris Colfer [Kurt] and Mark Salling [Puck], 'Glee' is one of their first professional gigs! Crazy what a difference a year can make.

So, just what was this talented bunch up to pre-'Glee?'

The First Lady Summons 'Glee' to the White House

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 22nd 2010 9:31PM
glee_white_gloves_foxWhen the White House calls, you sorta, kinda, have to rearrange the schedule and make room for a command performance. That's what's going on with Fox's hit show, 'Glee.' The First Lady and the First Daughters are big fans of 'Glee' and, according to Michael Ausiello in Entertainment Weekly, 'Glee's' been asked sing at the White House Easter Egg hunt on April 5. So despite the shooting schedule, they're going to rework things to meet the Obamas.

The 'Glee' singers are hot, hot, hot... and you can just see how Sasha and Malia are their target demographics, can't you? Michelle, too. Frankly, they don't need the eggs to get the White House rolling. "Don't Stop Believin'" will do the trick just fine.

Heroes: Dual

Heroes: Duel
(S03E13)
Man, they did it again. Set up a potentially solid climactic final chapter to a "Volume" and then just kind of fizzled out. Sylar's antics bordered a bit on the ridiculous, and I don't at all buy Nathan's character path over the past three seasons as plausible. I was pleased with the continuation and ultimate resolution of Hiro's story as it involved also Ando, Matt and Daphne. As it turns out, while these are by no means the central figures in the plots for this Volume, their story was the best.

Maybe it's because there was a minimum of whining (Peter) or pouting (Claire), and quite frankly there's only so much of that crap you can take. With the end of "Volume Three" tonight, as we've done in the past, we got a sneak peek at "Volume Four: Fugitives." And as has been the case in the past, the few minutes we got on a preview of the next volume was much more compelling than the finale of this current volume. Just like real comic books, you usually get a great build up in these big stories, ultimately leading to disappointment.

Heroes: Villains

Maybe they should have done this one a little earlier in the season. There was only one scene set in the present era, but it was a good one. The rest of the episode was "One Year Ago," weaving and interlacing with the events we did see during the show's first season, showing us what a lot of the characters we either didn't know or didn't follow then were up to, like Ma and Pa Petrelli, Linderman, Gabriel, Elle and even Claire's mother and uncle.

I remember that the second season was supposed to explore the elder generation, revealing more of their connections to one another and their motivations. We were going to learn more about The Company and what they were up to in regards to Peter and the rest of our main cast. It looks like those aborted promises are finally coming to fruition. It's unfortunate that the last season and so much of the start of this season was so lackluster, as things are really coming together nicely. And we're gaining sympathy for almost every member of the cast by learning more about them.

Nip/Tuck: Rachel Ben Natan

(L-R) Oliver Platt as Freddy Prune and Bradley Cooper as Aidan Stone on Nip/Tuck.
(S05E09) "I was never in any danger of being drugged by the gays." - Freddy

After a month off, Nip/Tuck is back. Only 14 of this season's 22 episodes were finished pre-WGA Strike, so it makes sense that FX threw that mini hiatus in there. I was really looking forward to this episode, and even though I liked it, there was still a lot of stuff that just didn't feel fresh to me. Recycled is probably more accurate. I love this show, but c'mon... Sean and Christian fighting over Julia is really getting old.

Friday Night Lights: There Goes The Neighborhood

Kyle Chandler - Friday Night Lights
(S02E10) And we're back. After a month off for viewers to celebrate the holidays, and for the networks to try and figure out how to fill up the schedule as the strike stretches on, our old pals in Dillon have returned. And things picked up right where they left off. Riggins is still wandering from home to home. Buddy is still in denial. None of us are sure just why Shelley is still living with the Taylor's. And Landry has gone from being riddled with the guilt of committing murder to being emotionally pummeled by the fact that he's fallen for a passive aggressive nutjob. It's a lot to get to, but we'll give it a shot, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: How Did I Get Here

Glenn Morshower and Jesse Plemons - Friday Night Lights
(S02E06) And you may ask yourself - Well... How did I get here?

It's a great title for this episode as we find a lot of our pals in Dillon questioning, being questioned about, or owning up to the situation they are currently in. That doesn't make for huge plot points that you can point to and say, "Look at that!" But it does bring up some interesting questions, and pave the way for stories in the future. With so many of the characters getting time this week, all of these changes actually overshadowed the one big, holy smokes, moment of the episode. That little thing you see in the screen cap.

New promo for Nip/Tuck -- VIDEO

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jul 16th 2007 3:19PM

Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon star in 'Nip/Tuck' on FX.For those of you that missed the first teaser promo for the fifth season of Nip/Tuck (it ran for the first time during last week's episode of Rescue Me), don't sweat it. After snooping all over the place for a video of the promo, I finally stumbled on to it in the least likely of locations:

The exclusive video section of the Rescue Me official site.

Sure enough though, they've got the whole video posted there. Awesome promo too. A backwards pan of the iconic Hollywood sign as the city lights flicker in the evening shade. With McNamara/Troy opening up their west coast shop this fall on F/X, Tinseltown has no idea what it's in store for. Oh and for those racking their brains over the song in the promo, it's a cover of Chris Isaac's "Wicked Game." The band behind the cover is called Giant Drag and they have the song on their MySpace page. Enough of me talking though. The video is after the jump. Enjoy.

Nip/Tuck: Willy Ward

Gina Russo (Jessalyn Gilsig, right) re-enters Christian's life when she learns Michelle will be Wilbur's adoptive mother.

(S04E14) Well this was certainly a nice surprise. I was hoping that Gina would be back since Wilbur had come back, but I didn't expect her return to be this good. Jessalyn Gilsig is a great actress (minus her turn as LJ's mother in Prison Break), so it was good to see her back in the role that I associate her with. That being said, she hasn't changed a bit. She'd like to think she has, but she is just as mean as she was before. She sold her shares in the spa, started going to her sex addicts anonymous meetings again, and even renewed her real estate license. Rather than drag her story out though, she quickly realized that she is still in no position to be a mother. But her life is still a mess. She isn't the only one though.

Nip/Tuck: Diana Lubey

Catherine Deneuve guest stars on Nip/Tuck.

(S04E12) What a well crafted episode. There was so much going on (not to mention a boatload of guest-stars) and it all flowed together so smoothly. I suppose the biggest thing to mention is that Christian proposed to Michelle. She accepted but on one condition: Christian had to sell his apartment so they could start fresh together. I loved what this set up. It forced Christian to examine all the women he's been with over the years and some pretty memorable characters made an appearance.

Nip/Tuck: Conor McNamara, 2026

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 15th 2006 12:47PM

The year is 2026 and some things haven't changed a bit as Christian (Julian McMahon) arrives at the McNamara family dinner reunion with his two young girlfriends.

(S04E11) What a cool episode. This was actually the second really elaborate "What if?" episode that Nip/Tuck has done though. Remember the one where it looked at Julia's life if she had chosen to marry Christian instead? This episode was better I thought and technically, it wasn't a "What if?" scenario so I guess I misspoke there. This is what actually happens in the year 2026 to the McNamara's and their friends. Kind of a cool concept because we've never had a chance to see the future of our favorite plastic surgeons. Look at that picture! I love how Christian essentially became Burt Landau despite his dislike for the man. Getting old will make you explore your options though.

Nip/Tuck: Conor McNamara

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 25th 2006 12:54AM

Joely Richardson as Julia McNamara on Nip Tuck.(S04E08) I'm really loving this season. Might be the best one since the first. The whole exploration of the McNamara family and their issues is far more compelling than any of the Quentin/Carver stuff. It's not that I disliked last season, I just think this kind of material works better for Nip/Tuck.

This was a really well crafted episode. It brought back a wonderful character in Mrs. Grubman and we got a rare glimpse into Sean's childhood. Plus, the surgery du jour was none other than young Conor McNamara, something that's been causing tension between Sean and Julia since the child's birth. On top of that, Peter Dinklage was back and Mo'Nique guest starred as Mrs. Grubman's sassy live-in nurse. Sounds like a winning combination right?

Nip/Tuck: Dawn Budge

Julian McMahon and Rosie O'Donnell

(S04E05) Jeez, kind of a slow episode but the final few minutes made up for it. We'll get to that later though. Let's talk about Rosie O'Donnell first. She was great! I had such low expectations for her role as a white-trash lottery winner. Rosie even showed a clip on The View a day or two ago and it didn't look all that good. I don't know, maybe it's just because she's everywhere right now. Regardless, she was hilarious as Dawn Budge and easily makes the list of great McNamara/Troy patients. Right up there there with Mrs. Grubman and Momma Boone.
