Gilmore Girls ended in May, 2007. Like any show that ends, its final episode set off an avalanche of hopeful rumors that we might one day see Lorelai, Rory, and the whole gang minus Dean sipping coffee and talk-talk-talking once again—this time on a screen as big as all Stars Hollow.

Ken Layne · 01/07/14 02:45PM

Television's most delightful occult/weird-crime/Tibetan Book of the Dead soap opera was Twin Peaks, first broadcast on ABC in 1990 and 1991. It was a magical era before all the characters stared at smart phones and websites all the time, because such things didn't exist. And now David Lynch is looking for a "HOT caucasian girl," among other Los Angeles actors, for a semi-mysterious Twin Peaks project.

Oh, the Attenuated Humanity: Sitting In On a New York Fashion Week Model Casting

Rich Juzwiak · 02/11/13 06:15PM

Approaching today, the first anniversary of the death of Whitney Houston, I have been thinking about the way the pop star voiced her displeasure with her career during the last 10 years of her life. She became increasingly irritated by the attention she received, ranting about it in song and on reality TV. She was sick of sharing her amazing gift with the world, a gift that she neglected over time by smoking things like cigarettes, marijuana, and cocaine. She had been one of the most famous, most objectively talented people in the world and she got sick of it.

James Apsimon · 11/17/11 11:33AM

The Michael Jackson estate is reportedly in talks for the inevitable film about the life of the King of Pop. Ivan Reitman's Montecito Picture Company – which has brought us Old School and Up In The Air, but also EuroTrip and The Pink Panther – might produce.

Brian Moylan · 11/07/11 01:54PM

Who on earth would play Princess Di in a movie? There is no one more needlessly deified on either side of the pond and no actress is going to be able to survive the scrutiny of such a performance. Well, Jessica Chastain is brave enough to try. The British press are going to have a field day with this!

Project Runway recently announced its Season 9 competitors, and here's a familiar face: Anya Ayoung-Chee realized she had "designer potential" when she "had the opportunity to consult on my wardrobe for the Miss Universe pageant in 2008," as Miss Trinidad-and-Tobago.
