The Chord Overstreet saga continues.
If you watch the show to your left, you might be a Republican.
Are casting directors, showrunners and network executives purposely trying to conspire to force me to stop watching my favorite shows? Seriously, people. I'm OK with a little bit of stunt casting, but I've about had it up to here (gesturing approximately 12 inches above my head) with the starlets who find more fame on the pages of the tabloids than from doing any actual work, coming onto my favorite shows and mucking things up and then getting a lot of credit when the show gets a ratings boost.
Finally, some stuntcasting news that doesn't make me want to stab things. After that whole Katie Holmes thing and Regis on How I Met Your Mother and anyone who's ever been in a tabloid on Ugly Betty, my rage problems were getting the best of me. Anyway, rage subsiding! Sigourney Weaver will guest on Eli Stone next season, playing Eli's psychologist, a character who, you know, kinda has her work cut out for her. Eli Stone isn't really my thing, but I love me some Sigourney Weaver, and anyone who was in Alias (Victor Garbor) or Hackers (Johnny Lee Miller) has my vote for life (yes, that includes Angelina. Yes, I still love her despite all the husband-stealing and hypocrisy and whatnot. No, my enthusiasm for Angelina does not mean I'm automatically going to try to hook up with your husband, so stop making that panicked face for crying out loud, god!), so maybe I will give the show a second chance when these episodes air. See what casting legitimate actors who can show up and play a character and actually do something useful does, Hollywood? It's effective! Now get Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie off my TV!
Last night my dorky dreams came true when Cory Matthews guest starred on Chuck. Little Ben Savage has grown up to be a slightly taller version of his Boy Meets World character (I don't know why I write about that show so much; I just can't help myself), but in this case way smarter. He's a nerd who married the most popular cheerleader in school (who is played by Nicole Richie, who isn't as terrible as one might think she would be as an actress, especially when she just has to play bitchy) and has used his big brain to develop some sort of weapon. I'm just so happy to see him have a job, and the fact that they made him hero worship Chuck, rather, Special Agent Charles Carmichael, was just too cute to stand. I want him on the show all the time! He could be their Marshall and make them awesome spy gear. That's exactly what this show has been missing.
Dina Lohan continues to destroy her family with her ambition, and Katie Holmes freaks us out once again.
Nothing huge getting announced the day before Thanksgiving, but we've got some info you might find valuable, depending on how much you miss The Simple Life.
