Maxim-um Penny as 'Big Bang Theory' Star Does Photo Shoot

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 16th 2010 1:01PM
kaley_cuoco_penny_big_bang_theory_maximIt doesn't take a rocket scientist -- let alone the brainiacs on 'The Big Bang Theory' -- to recognize that the girl next door is a beautiful woman. Magazine editors have seen it, too, and 'Big Bang Theory's' Kaley Cuoco has been featured in Maxim magazine. That's right, Penny's in Maxim.

These photos, which aren't too shocking or revealing, just very sexy and suggestive -- the full set is here -- do fall into the category of cheesecake. Perfect for an actress/waitress working at The Cheesecake Factory, right?

Why is ABC giving Nicole Richie a situation comedy?

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 1st 2009 3:01PM
nicole_richie_necklaceIf you don't count Hank -- and I'm trying to erase the two episodes I saw from my memory banks -- ABC has had a pretty good year launching new comedies. In fact, if you go back to the spring, you can add Better Off Ted to Cougar Town, The Middle and Modern Family.

Why then would ABC be giving Nicole Richie a new sitcom? I just don't see where she's worthy of a show, let alone that she has the star appeal or talent to carry a situation comedy.

Perhaps ABC has some take on The Simple Life star that I'm missing. She's cute, yes. She's not a complete airhead judging by what I've seen of her on talk shows. But, really, aren't there better actresses -- stars -- who are more viable for a new comedy series? Stars will more talent than celebrity to their credit.

Ask TV Squad: We need your questions!

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 24th 2009 9:03AM
TVSquadEvery now and then as I watch a show, questions such as these pop up in my mind: Where have I seen that actor before? Hasn't she already appeared on the show before as another character? What is that song playing in the background? Where has (insert character name) gone? And on and on.

I also have questions about current shows even when I'm not watching them: How many episodes will we get this season? When will the season premiere? Will (insert actor's name here) be back on the show? Which famous person will guest star? And so on. That's not counting the questions I have about upcoming storylines! Thank god for spoilers!

Of course, questions about series from the past also pop up: Why did (insert show here) end? Can I get answers for the unanswered storylines since the series was canceled without having a proper goodbye? Whatever happened to (insert actor's name) who played on (insert show's title)? And so on.

If you have questions about TV series and actors and want answers now, "Ask TV Squad" has the solution for you! Read on to learn how.

Ashley Jensen: In the Limelight

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 13th 2009 10:02AM
Ashley JensenFirst of all, if for some reason you're an Ugly Betty fan that hasn't gotten around to seeing the season finale, click away and watch it right now, because there are spoilers ahead. Also, you should probably reconsider calling yourself an Ugly Betty fan because you're way, way late on the uptake.

Secondly, if you're curious about Ashley Jensen, you're in the right place. And I'm sorry for questioning your devotion to Betty and the gang a few sentences ago. That was uncalled for.

Parker Posey joins Jezebel James

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 16th 2007 10:03AM

parker poseyThere's a good chance I'm losing my mind, but I swear I've written about the series The Return of Jezebel James before. However, I can't seem to find the post anywhere on this blog. Perhaps I just imagined it, or I'm schizophrenic and my other personality wrote about it for a rival TV blog.

At any rate, Parker Posey has just been added to the new FOX pilot about a children's book editor who asks her estranged sister to carry her baby for her. The series comes from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who is executive producing along with her husband, Daniel Palladino. The couple, rightly so, were thrilled when Posey said yes. I was also thrilled when Posey said yes, to me, in a dream last night when I posed this question: Do you want to make out on this giant plate of elbow macaroni?

Sorry, I've always kinda had a thing for Parker Posey. She's enough to make me want to check out this new show at least once. We'll see if the series as a whole is worth sticking around for, as well.

Jordana Brewster picked for Mr & Mrs Smith pilot

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 2nd 2007 12:00PM

jordana brewsterThe lovely Jordana Brewster has been selected to star in the ABC adaptation of the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt movie Mr and Mrs Smith. The pilot will take place six months after the movie ends, with the married assassins being all romantic and stuff while still trekking across the globe and killing people for hire.

Brewster has been in demand this season for several other pilots. She was last seen on the movie screen in the films Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and The Fast and the Furious.

According to IMDb, Doug Liman, who also directed the 2005 film, will also direct the pilot episode. There's no word yet on who will play John Smith. In fact, it's not even absolutely clear if Brewster will be playing Jane Smith, though all reports seem to be making that assumption.

Thanks to Wild Bill for the tip.

Ellen DeGeneres stand-up special on Comedy Central in February

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 24th 2007 8:01AM

ellen degeneresEllen DeGeneres' stand-up special, Ellen DeGeneres: Here and Now, will make its network television premiere on Comedy Central February 4 at 9:30pm.

I give credit to DeGeneres for carving out her own place in the phallocentric world of comedy. She is, in my opinion, one of the best female comedians working today. I'll definitely be Tivoing this special, and hopefully my Tivo will actually record it rather than recording an Amazing Jonathan special like it did when I asked it to record Demetri Martin's latest special. Stupid technology.

One final thing: the title of her new special caused the song "Here and Now" by Luther Vandross to get stuck in my head.

Mary Tyler Moore dances for Hotpoint - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 7th 2007 9:02AM

mary tyler mooreI would love to see the young versions of Mary Tyler Moore and Marlo Thomas put in a cage together and have a battle of cute. I'm not exactly sure how that would work, I'm guessing they would just emit cuteness until one of them was overcome and their head exploded. This violates several laws of physics, but I'm convinced it would work because their cuteness is almost supernatural. What I can't explain is why I would express my admiration for an actress by imagining a scenario in which they might be violently killed. I really need to think these things through better.

ABC loves Bonnie Somerville

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 10th 2006 10:02AM
bonnie somervilleBonnie Somerville, who has appeared on series such as NYPD Blue, Kitchen Confidential, Grosse Pointe and In-Laws and guest starred on episodes of Friends and The OC, has been signed into a deal with ABC that will either result in the actress getting her own pilot, or being brought into an already-existing series. I'm not sure what the allure is, because I never watched any of the previous series she was on, but apparently there's something about her ABC likes because the network is trying to keep her around. Her comedy series with Danny Comden, the actor/comedian seen most recently on the short-lived I'm with Her, was not picked up by the network.

Laura Kightlinger on Jackie Woodman

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 15th 2006 5:31PM

laura kightlingerI wouldn't call myself a huge fan, but I've always had an admiration for comedian Laura Kightlinger. She's popped up from time to time on the TV screen on shows such as Saturday Night Live and Loveline, as well as Will and Grace, on which she was also a writer and producer. She's very funny, and this interview she did with USA Today's Whitney Matheson proves it. The two ladies talk about Kightlinger's IFC series The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman, which Anna first mentioned in May and is yet further proof that I need a better cable package because there are just too many channels with too many good shows I'm missing. At least, I assume the show is good since she's involved with it. Perhaps it totally sucks, but I wouldn't know. That's my point.

jessica albaActress Jessica Alba was chosen to host the MTV Movie Awards next month. Alba is actually nominated for three golden popcorn trophies, for 'sexiest performance' in Sin City and for 'best hero' and 'best on-screen team' for The Fantastic Four. There's no doubt she is gorgeous, but can she carry a pseudo-live show?

The awards show films on June 3rd and airs on June 8th on MTV.

Teri Hatcher rolling in money

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 11th 2006 10:33AM
teri hatcherTeri Hatcher reportedly got tough with Buena Vista Television, the company that produces Desperate Housewives. She demanded a cut from all the merchandise that is sold with the Desperate Housewives moniker and she got her way. According to various sources, the deal puts her among the highest paid actresses on television (a DH publicist contacted us to deny she's the "highest paid" actress on television, as we originally reported). She currently rakes in $315,000 per episode of DH and will make an extra $1 million for one week of work to pimp DH merchandise such as a new video game, a board game, and new ringtones.

Who do you think deserves to be the highest paid actress on television?
