  • Come on, the best thing about the Animal Practice pilot was Betsy Sodaro. She’s not hot by any stretch of any imagination, but she was funny and new. The monkey’s so 2000 and late.

    • Finally someone else who liked her, though I do have to say I like the monkey

      • Betsy Sodaro is hilarious. Great performer and improviser. She’s gonna be Animal Practice’s breakout.

  • The only ones I expect to actually see are Arrow, Revenge, and The Walking Dead. Super excited about Michonne (what a creepily awesome character).

  • I really like the look of Sam’s new love interest on Supernatural, as well as Jay Ryan in Beauty and the Beast. As a Kiwi I’ve liked his work in New Zealand and Australian shows for a few years now. I’m also looking forward to the two new Vampire Diaries additions.

  • I’m not saying there is anything wrong with it producers should cast who they think is best no matter where they’re from but it must drive American actors (which LA and NY are full of, trust me) to see so many roles go to UK, Euro, and Aussie actors. In fact I know it does.

    • The American actors just need to step it up.

    • There was actually a study done about 10 years ago about why there’s so many Brits, Aussies and Canucks who have found success in Hollywood. The major finding was that more time is spent in school on creative expression (ie.creative writing, drama, art, music, etc.) and that because of their home television/film industry, its easier to get the experience at home before going to Hollywood. Also, the average American actor (as per the study) had more trouble with empathy/patience than Brit and Aussie actors–it made it more difficult when it came to character study. The study looked at the psychology in general of actors. It was a very interesting read.

      • I’d like to have a look at this study, it piked my interest… Know the names of the researchers or where I can find it?

    • Alex, have you heard about punctuation? It’s all the rage.

    • Keep bringing on those Aussie boys. They just keep getting hotter and hotter. I think there is something in the water down there :)

  • Every time i see Melissa Benoist in that Tampax commercial I think “that girl is going to be on Glee.” I actually think she seems to be a pretty good actress so I’m looking forward to her. I really liked Camilla Luddington in that Will & Kate movie. She’s really cute and extremely underused on True Blood so I hope she’s given good material on Grey’s.

    • If you REALLY like her check our her CALIFORNICATION episodes, if you catch my drift.

  • After seeing the picture above of Becca Tobin, I can see why Shanna had absolutely no chance of going all the way on The Glee Project. Becca is Shanna’s twin!

  • Balaban looks really pretty.
    Too bad I’m not interested in lovestories in SPN at all.

  • That Dean Geyer guy is freaking gorgeous. It’s not fair for a man to be that pretty lol

  • Liane Balaban, God bless you… And keep you safe.

  • THAT is Captain Hook? I always pictured him as older, swarthy, warty. This guy is really hot. Can he please hook up with Regina?
