Corey Monteith Has a Record Deal, 'Real Housewife' Writing Advice Book & More TV News

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 23rd 2011 6:40PM
Glee, Cory MonteithOf all the Gleeks, Corey Monteith is probably the last you'd consider for a solo record deal.

Yet the man otherwise known as 16-year-old Finn on Fox's 'Glee' talked to Parade magazine about his solo deal with Columbia Records in an article due out this weekend.

"I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it's about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what's the right timing? Do I have time to do it?," Monteith told the magazine. "It's all about questions."

Then again, Monteith is a talented drummer, so perhaps his potential album would feature less singing and more drumming. Would you listen to a Monteith-only record?

It's Alec Baldwin (Yankees) vs. John Krasinski (Red Sox) in New Era Campaign (VIDEO)

John Krasinski in New Era adIn the world of rivalries, you can't get any better than the one between the Yankees and the Red Sox. The fans of each team are so passionate in both the love of their team and the hatred of the other team that it makes the Mac vs. PC rivalry look silly in comparison.

The folks at New Era, who manufacture all the caps for Major League Baseball, have taken this rivalry to a new level and hired two of NBC's biggest comedy stars to show that Yanks vs. Sox transcends everything, including Thursday comedy lineup camaraderie.

In the ad -- the first of a series -- Yankee fan Alec Baldwin ('30 Rock') is talking on the phone with Red Sox fanatic John Krasinski ('The Office'), and the trash talking between them is reminiscent of two buddies jawing about the teams over a few beers, with a few clever barbs thrown in for good measure.

The commercial and more after the jump.

John Krasinski Talks Steve Carell: Nobody Can Replace Him on 'The Office'

by PopEater Staff, posted Mar 20th 2011 4:00PM
John KrasinskiIt's almost that time, 'The Office' fans! Time to say goodbye to Steve Carell's Michael Scott and hello to his replacement. Thankfully, we have a few more episodes left. However, the cast and crew bid farewell to the actor already.

John Krasinski is the featured interview in the upcoming issue of Parade, where the shaggy-haired actor reveals how he really feels about Steve Carell's impeding departure from their beloved TV show, 'The Office.'

"[It's been] completely bittersweet," Krasinski told the magazine. "It's an insanely special relationship we have with each other on the show, and Steve's leaving is the first time we've been snapped out of it and had to think about how much we all rely on each other."

Carell, who shot his last episode of 'The Office' earlier this month, is leaving to pursue his movie career. "No one can replace him. That goes for him as an actor, because no one has the sense of humor he does, but also there's no person who has his incredible positivity and professionalism, and just a really good heart," he continued. "So we're losing a friend first and foremost."

John Krasinksi Dresses Up As Spider-Man, and Fights With a Bearded Batman (VIDEO)

John Krasinksi Dresses Up As Spider-Man, and Fights With a Bearded BatmanAs you may have heard already, the superhero Spider-Man is generally considered to be a friendly neighborhood kind of guy. But this wasn't necessarily the case on the new 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

Jimmy was supposed to have Ryan Seacrest as his guest, but Seacrest wasn't available, so Jimmy went looking for the next best thing: His pal John Krasinski. The two men are neighbors in Los Angeles, so the talk show host knew where to find Mr. Krasinski.

But wait. ... Where would you look for John Krasinski? If you said "he'd probably be hanging out on the streets and begging for loose change while dressed up in a Spider-Man costume," then you are correct! Granted, this was a little odd. But even more strangely, Jimmy's "friendly neighbor"' wasn't very friendly when he was wearing the red-and-blue outfit.

'The Office' - 'Body Language' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 30th 2010 12:29AM
Steve Carell and Amy Pietz in 'The Office' - 'Body Language'(S06E22) It's odd seeing a Michael Scott that's relatively restrained and under control, isn't it?

I say this because, even though some of what Michael did in this episode would be deemed wildly inappropriate in any office, he had a reason for it. And, compared to some of the embarrassments Michael has perpetrated within the walls of Dunder Mifflin Scranton, misinterpreting the signals from a bar manager is way, way down on the list. Remember, this is a guy who held a teenage pizza delivery guy hostage.

But it did make for a pretty funny episode. Even Dwight's Schrute-ish shenanigans weren't even all that annoying, especially because it's always funny to see his schemes backfire on him.

'The Office' - 'Secretary's Day' Recap

(S06E22) We haven't heard from the folks at Dunder Mifflin Scranton for almost a month, and it's refreshing that the first episode back, the antics are generally related to office-specific issues. Well, at least the better part of the episode was office-related.

'The Office' - 'Happy Hour' Recap

(S06E20)
If you took this episode and dropped it in the middle of season two or three, it probably would have fit in nicely. Well, except for the fact that you might be asking why Pam was on maternity leave (and why Jim is the dad), why Andy is working in Scranton, and just who the hell Erin is.

But you know what I'm getting at. The tone, pacing, and comedy of this episode continues the recent trend of 'The Office' getting back to what made people love it to begin with. And, yes, part of that means that Michael is going to make an ass of himself. But at least the season six version of Michael somehow gets a little bit of hope mixed in with his desperation stew.

'The Office' - 'New Leads' Recap

John Krasinski in 'The Office' - 'New Leads'(S06E19) It's starting to feel like Sabre's purchase of Dunder-Mifflin was just the jumping-odd point the writers needed to bring the Scranton branch dynamic back to something that feels like the old days. For the second week in a row, we have an episode that felt very much like the ones from the first couple of seasons -- without the Jim/Pam drama -- with the entire office interacting with each other and a large amount of mistrust floating about. And it made for one of the funniest episodes in years.

With sales being king at Sabre, the sales staff was letting their elevated status go to their heads. This brings about some interesting character aspects we haven't seen much of. Phyllis, for instance, gets to take her status out on Michael, who's embarrassed her any number of times, and Angela, who she just plain hates. Andy walks out of a tedious Michael-called meeting. Stanley actually looks like he's doing work. It's amazing how a high commission can motivate even the most sedentary salesperson, huh?

Jim and Pam's Baby Mix-Up on 'The Office' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 5th 2010 1:46AM
The Office, Jim and Pam, BabyYou just knew that the debut of Jim and Pam's little bundle of joy wouldn't go off without a hitch. And, lo and behold, this particular snafu didn't even involve Michael Scott.

If Pam was Salma Hayek, it would have been just another day of breastfeeding someone else's baby. Instead, it was a really awkward moment that will probably haunt the couple into infinity.

Then again, we're guessing the little mix-up will cause new parents to keep their babies close to them in the maternity ward. So, nice PSA from 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC).

'The Office' - 'The Delivery' Recap

'The Office' - 'The Delivery'
(S06E16 / S06E17)
Remember how the one hour Pam/Jim wedding episode was considered by many -- including me -- to be 'The Office's' best episode of the season? Well, the one-hour Pam/Jim baby episode definitely isn't in that category.

Why? Because, through a lot of the episode, Pam and Jim displayed none of the charm that made us fall in sitcom love with them in the first place. To compound the situation, they're being written into situations that would make fans of 'Yes, Dear' cringe. But we'll get to that later.

As usual with most one-hour 'Office' episodes, the first half was better than the second. But even the first half of this one had some problems.

'The Office' - 'Manager and Salesman' Recap

Steve Carell in 'The Office' - 'Manager and Salesman'(S06E16) Ahhhhhh.... order has finally been restored to the universe.

Can you feel it? The air is cleaner, food tastes better, and the two feet of snow outside my window is a fluffy dream instead of an icy mess.

It seems like the producers of 'The Office' realized things weren't right in their world and they decided to rectify things. And in the process they made one of the more satisfying episodes of the season.

Review: 'The Office' - 'Sabre'

The Office: Sabre
(S01E15)
Why has this season of 'The Office' been so off-kilter? There have been promising episodes but very few that hit the mark. In fact, the only episode that can hold its own with classic 'Office' episodes is the Pam-Jim wedding, and I'm starting to fear that the show really is trying to figure out where to go from that high point.

And Jam may be the big problem here. They're not interesting anymore. But I'll get to them later.

So Dunder Mifflin is now owned by a company called Sabre. We don't quite know what they're all about except that they sell printers and they have a feisty CEO played by Kathy Bates. And in exchange for saving the branch's ass, they've asked for a few very reasonable changes. You'd think that even Michael Scott would embrace those changes. You'd be wrong.

A clip show? Really?

After being gone for six weeks, and teased by the no good louts at the NBC publicity department that we were getting a "new Office," we get handed a clip show. Not cool.

And... and... when was the last time you saw a sitcom do a clip show, anyway? Friends, maybe? I thought in this new era of "creativity" in the sitcom world clip shows were more mocked than embraced.

Ok, ok. Enough bitching on my part. I guess this will be the shortest Office review ever, because there wasn't all that much new material to talk about.
