Rob Lowe reveals he won’t be playing the Tiger King after all
July 8th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, Rob Lowe, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: 1 ]

A few months ago, Rob Lowe shared a photo of himself dressed up as Joe Exotic. Then he revealed that he and Ryan Murphy were working on a project about the Tiger King.

That was then. Yesterday, the actor told Conan O’Brien that the movie is off. When Murphy tried the get the rights to the story, they were already taken by Nicolas Cage’s people.

Why can’t they do an Amy Fisher and let multiple retell the purrfect story?

Are you mad that Lowe and Murphy’s plan has been put in a cage?


Watch Jim Parsons go bald for Hollywood
May 7th, 2020 under Netflix, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Jim Parsons plays Henry Wilson, a sleazy agent, in Ryan Murphy’s Hollywood on Netflix, and the man he portrayed had a receding hairline. That means that the Big Bang Theory star had to do the same.

How was he going to get that look when he has a full head of hair? Is he going to shave the top of his head? Nope. The makeup department is going to give him a bald spot.

The actor showed us how they did it, and it takes a lot more effort than you would think. So much so, I think he should have just shaved it off.

When it comes to his character, I didn’t see Sheldon Cooper. That is the good news. The bad news is all I saw was Pee Wee Herman. Actually, it was more like Paul Reuben when he was on Murphy Brown.

When it comes to the mini-series, it is an enjoyable binge. It really captured the feel of the era even though the drama took a lot of liberties with the truth. Then again, who hasn’t? After all, that is what Hollywood is all about.


9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lonestar don’t have to call 9-1-1
April 13th, 2020 under Fox, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

We are a month away from the possible upfronts, but Fox is not going to wait that long to announce that they picked up two shows for next season. 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lonestar will both be on the lineup whenever the new seasons starts up.

Is this news a surprise? Far from it. They are both the network’s top scripted shows behind The Masked Singer. The latter is the perfect show during this time since everyone is wearing masks now.

Back to the dramas, I hope Lonestar is wilder like 9-1-1 when it comes back for its second season. It was too serious and too much about their lives. I want them to take on some crazy crap like the original show. That is what makes 9-1-1 so much fun. You never know what Ryan Murphy is going to pull out of his ridiculous hat.


There’s a wedding on The Neighborhood, Get to know Athena on 9-1-1
November 4th, 2019 under Angela Bassett, CBS, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on CBS’s The Neighborhood, it is Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) and Tina’s (Tichina Arnold) 30th anniversary. As soon a Gemma (Beth Behrs) finds that out, she convinces them to have the wedding they never had. They got married the first time around in a courthouse.

Gemma gets so excited; she is spending their money like it grows on trees. Something that the very cheap Calvin does not like. He does something that causes Tina to call off the wedding.

Will Calvin and Tina get married or get divorced? You have to tune in to find out. There are definitely a lot of funny twists and turns throughout the episode.

Also at 8p but over on Fox, we learn Athena’s (Angela Bassett) backstory on 9-1-1. Before she was a police officer, she wanted to be a lawyer. Then one day, she met Emmett, a cop, and she fell in love. Not only did he convince her to become a cop, but he also asked her to marry him. She said yes.

Before they said I do, he was killed on the job, and his killer was never caught. That was until now. The gun that killed her first love has just been found, and she is going to do everything she can to trace back who had it on that fateful night. She will do things that will put her risk.

How far will she go to find her fiance’s killer? You are going to watch this episode that finally explains why she is the way that she is.


Will Buck win his case or lose his friends on 9-1-1?
October 21st, 2019 under Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Last week on 9-1-1, Buck (Oliver Stark) decided to sue the city, the fire department and Bobby (Peter Krause) to get his job back at LAFD Station 19. While the lawsuit is going on, he cannot talk to any of his friends at the firehouse. Which is something they will be OK with. That is because tonight at 8p on Fox, the depositions begin. His friends will see how far he is willing to go to get his job back including revealing a lot of their secrets. How will they handle his betrayal?

That is just one part of the episode. We want to see the wild and crazy calls they are sent out on. Two best friends go to one of those places where you can destroy things to get out all of your anger. One friend finds out that her BFF has been sleeping with her husband. Probably not a good time to get caught when the wife of the man you are sleeping with is holding a sledgehammer. What will she do to her ex BFF?

The station house goes for a food run. You would think it would be uneventful, but it is not. They just cannot get away from trouble.

Finally, Athena’s (Angela Bassett) ex-husband, Michael (Rockmond Dunbar) takes their kids for a trip. On the way back, they are stopped by two overzealous white cops who threaten to harm him and his daughter (Corinne Massiah). They only leave when he tells them that Athena is his wife. How will she react when she finds out what happened to her family? No one wants to mess with her. She is scary. This is the storyline you do not want to miss.

9-1-1 gives us a little bit of everything. Tonight’s episode really delivers in all departments.
