    Shelley is amazing! She should get a lead role soon! L-ing her!

  2. CHiddy says:

    WWE returns to The CW after all.

  3. sam says:

    I’ll watch Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous just for Shelley Hennig. I wonder if Britt Robertson or Thomas Dekker will get roles on other shows too.

  4. Martin says:

    Don’t know about the Last Man Standing changes, will have to wait and see, at least they didn’t recast Mandy, it’s a shame they can’t change the format of the show so it focuses on the family and just the family, the work bit was always the weakest.

  5. Jane says:

    Keenyah! Omg.

  6. yippy says:

    Why do they even cast Odette Annable? She jinxes the shows she’s in and they get canceled.

      Don’t blame her for Breaking In or House or Brothers and sisters……..the last 2 were sinking and the comedy wasn’t bad but didn’t take off!!

      • megalion says:

        I loved Breaking In, it really clicked for me.

        She was a real value to House too. If I recall, she came on after it was announced that it was gonna be the final season.

        Never watched B&S

        If anyone deserves the title of show killer, it’d be Summer Glau. How many cancelled shows under her belt?

        In all seriousness, it’s a silly title to give anyone. It’s rare that anyone can point to any one thing other than networks unhappy with ratings as being the direct cause of cancellation.

        House was a mutual decision all around (I believe based on what I heard).

        The central actor leaving the show (ie SMG of Buffy). Unless either it’s Dr Who or the decision is made to replace actor (ie Spartacus-such a sad story)

        The central actor being too much of a problem to continue production (ie Witchblade, reportedly cancelled because of Yancy’s drinking problems interfering with production)

    Its a shame The Secret Circle was cancelled. Shelley is absolutely beautiful and talented.
