Jenni JWoww Farley Cast In One Life To Live Revival
Jenni “JWoww” Farley is making her move from reality TV to ‘real’ acting: She has been officially cast in the role of Nikki, a bartender at Shelter, on One Life to Live.
The previously canceled soap is getting a revival online and will air on Hulu and iTunes as a 30-minute Web series.
“I used to watch it with my grandmother,” JWoww said. “I always said, ‘If I do this, I have to do it for my grams’ because she’ll be looking down and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, my granddaughter is on my show.’ Now that I’m in it, I’m like, ‘This is awesome, this is the best thing ever.’ I was very scared though going into it, like shitting myself scared.”
As to whether this is a one-shot deal or just the beginning of her acting, JWoww said, “As long as it stays true to me and I don’t look like an asshole, I’m good.”
Futurama Canceled… Again
In what feels like deja-vu, Comedy Central has decided to cancel Futurama.
The second half of season 7—a 13-episode set beginning June 19—will be the last new adventures for Fry and friends, with the final episode set to air Sept. 4.
This marks the show’s second cancellation; it first got the axe from Fox in 2003, before Comedy Central resurrected it in 2010.
“I felt like we were already in the bonus round on these last couple of seasons, so I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” executive producer David X. Cohen says. “At this point I keep a suitcase by my office door so I can be canceled at a moment’s notice.” Could the show be resurrected yet again? Creator Matt Groening says they’ve been looking into a few possibilities, but haven’t seriously pursued any of them yet. “We’re catching our breath and seeing what the fans have to say.”
Katherine Webb Quits Splash
Reality TV show ‘Splash’ is a bad show, we all know it. The producers know it, the viewers know it and the contestants specially know it… that’s why they are not waiting to get voted off, they are simply quitting.
This week’s turn was Katherine Webb, AKA the only reason to watch the show.
Webb explained to the audience on Tuesday, “I went to the doctor, and unfortunately, he told me I’m out of the competition.” Later she tweeted, “Thank you guys for all the support! Means so much. Love you guys.”
Unfortunately this mean we won’t have any more of these shots:
MTV Cancels Buckwild
MTV has canceled new reality series “Buckwild” eight days after cast member Shain Gandee died, halting production on Season 2.
“After several days spent weighing the implications of moving forward with the reality show, MTV brass ultimately decided it would be imprudent to do so. The move — a bid to avoid any potential controversy as well as a recognition that Gandee was the show’s breakout star — comes after a heavily hyped and ultimately successful first season.”
The 21-year-old was found dead in his SUV, with two other passengers, including his 48-year-old uncle, David Gandee. The cause of death was determined to be carbon monoxide poisoning, after the vehicle became stuck in mud which submerged the tailpipe.
“We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident,” MTV said in a statement after the news broke. “We are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the Gandee family and their friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly.”
Chris Rock Lands New TV Show Gig
Did you know that BET has a show called “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” ?
But apparently Chris Rock did know this and was pretty eager to ger on it as sources just confirmed he is joining the cast, replacing Robin Thicke for the second season
But don’t worry, the show is nothing like ‘The Real Housewives” franchises, it’s actually a parody.
The show, which stars and is produced by comedian Kevin Hart, has been a ratings and critical hit for BET ever since debuting in January. Alongside Hart, the regular cast of the show includes J.B. Smoove, Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe and Duane Martin
“I just watched the show and it just seemed like they were having so much fun. I said, ‘I want to have fun,’” Rock said.
Netflix Announces Arrested Development Dates
Cancel your Memorial Day weekend plans: Netflix just announced that all 15 new shows of Arrested Development will be available on May 26 (which is actually one more episode than anticipated)
And it sounds more interesting than expected too:
“The action across the episodes is happening simultaneously. If I’m driving down the street in my episode and Gob’s going down the sidewalk on his Segway, you could stop my episode, go into his episode, and follow him and see where he’s going.” Jason Bateman told GQ.
Christopher Abbott Reportedly Leaving ‘Girls’
I know your girlfriend makes you watch Girls and you make it seem like such a drag but inside you are so happy because you know you’ll be looking at some boobs.
Anyway, it looks like next season Marnie (the hot skinny one) will have to look for a new boyfriend: Christopher Abbott is reportedly leaving “Girls.”
Abbott — who plays Charlie — is leaving due to creative differences with “Girls” creator, writer, director and star Lena Dunham.
“They’ve just started work on Season 3, and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source told the Post. “He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map.”
But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Abbott was simply too busy to continue his work on the show.
“[Chris] is grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd [Apatow], and the entire ‘Girls’ cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show,” a rep said.
Tonight Show: Jay Leno Out, Jimmy Fallon In
Shocking I tell you, shocking.
Fallon, who plans to take over in February, will bring the show back from the West Coast to 30 Rockefeller Center in New York City.
The pair had goofed on the controversy a few days ago, and Leno sounds upbeat, at least publicly. “Congratulations Jimmy,” he said in a statement. “I hope you’re as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you’re the old guy. If you need me, I’ll be at the garage.”
