Here's some career advice you can take away from the news today: (1) You'll get places in life if you're fearless and have a thing for gross, fat guys; (2) If you're part of a famous singing trio, don't publicize your purity rings; and (3) If you're a famous comedian, don't mock said purity rings unless you want to die. Also, there's news about guest stars, Jennifer Garner, and new comedy shows.
The brazen go-getter intern who shows no fear in the face of medical situations...or Dr. Cox has sufficiently secured a place for herself at Sacred Heart, or rather, in next season's med school. Eliza Coupe, who plays the tough Denise, will be back on Scrubs, fetish for gross, fat guys included (because they try harder in bed), come fall.
Daphne Zuniga is returning to her roots. A star in the original Melrose Place, she is reviving Jo Reynolds in the updated series. Apparently between the first series and this one, that character has actually made it in life as a professional photographer -- a better gig than playing a frigid bitch of a mother on One Tree Hill, in my opinion.
Jennifer Garner is following the trend and also returning to her roots -- specifically to the network that made her gain some fame. The ex-Alias star has made a deal with ABC that includes projects -- and excludes acting. It's just all so mysterious. What are the specifics? What shows would she guest star in?
And more guest star news: Martha Plimpton will appear as a mother of a young patient in a multi-episode arc on Grey's Anatomy, which doesn't mean anything because nothing will save this show.
British comedian Russell Brand and his notoriously too-tight jeans-and-scraggly-hair-getup is putting his "life on the line" and will return as the host of this year's MTV Video Music Awards. Jonas Brothers -- you best hide your purity rings, otherwise a repeat of last year's VMAs might be in order.
Is it just me or are there more movies-turned-TV shows these days? Because TBS is planning on adapting the Ice Cube feature Are We There Yet? into a TV show. After an "intense bidding" war between different networks, I'm expecting high hopes for this family comedy. Plus, Terry Crews will star as the father, and I think it'd be in everybody's best interest if Ice Cube would just stick with rapping.
FX is "aggressively" pursuing comedy projects to accompany It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and they might have found an answer. FX just ordered a pilot of The League, a comedy that centers on a fantasy football league, life in suburbia and everything in between, starring Leslie Bibb, Nick Kroll and Paul Scheer. I'll leave you with the words of the lead character: "God bless fantasy football." Well, you can be the judge of that.
