<em>Growing Up Smith:</em> Q&A With Anjul Nigam
Huffington Post - 20 days
"No explosions, no violence, no profanity!" is the mantra behind every production backed by Brittany House Pictures, and the company's latest project, "Growing Up Smith," (formerly "Good Ol' Boy") is not exception. We had a chance to catch up with Anjul Nigam, president and founding partner of the company, who also plays a triple role in the film - that of actor, writer and producer. Actor, writer and producer Anjul Nigam. Photo: Dana Patrick Photography. You are the writer/producer/actor in this film, so how challenging was it wearing three hats on one project? Which role made you feel the most comfortable? I would say the most challenging part of wearing three hats was time management. As a producer there were always fires to put out; as a writer, there were always last minute rewrites often based on those same fires (e.g. we lost a location and a scene had to incorporate a new setting); and as an actor, although acting has been my primary profession for nearly 25 years, ...

'Grey's Anatomy' Scoop: Owen Without Cristina, A Big Twist & More
Popeater - over 3 years
When it was announced that Sandra Oh would be leaving "Grey's Anatomy" after Season 10, the Internet exploded (Huffington Post included) with tributes to Cristina Yang and her epic friendship with her person, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). But what about Owen? I caught up with Kevin McKidd, who plays Cristina's on-again off-again husband/lover/sparring partner to find out where they stand and if Owen will ever bite the bullet and adopt a kid himself to raise as a single dad. Full disclosure: We chatted before Sandra Oh's departure was announced, but that didn't stop him from sharing plenty of scoop. He definitely must've known something then because he was already talking about Owen's future plans without Cristina and possible new love interests. He was also very matter-of-fact about his own future on the show, saying he doesn't have plans to leave anytime soon. "I love being on the show. Everyday I go there, I feel blessed and lucky and I pinch myself," McKidd said. "And ...

Grey’s Anatomy Promotes Four Out of Five Interns for Season 10
Boom Tron - over 3 years
Grey’s Anatomy’s cast of series regulars will be swelling for the ABC drama’s 10th season. With the influx of doctor interns in the show’s ninth season, it’s not surprising one or two of them would get the big promotion to regular status since Grey’s has lost a couple of cast members. But what was surprising was the decision to promote four formerly recurring cast members, making four out of the five interns now main characters. That’s a large number! And while this is good news for four of the actors, I can’t imagine this being good news for the one who was left out. According to THR, Camilla Luddington, Gaius Charles, Jerrika Hinton and Tessa Ferrer have all been promoted to series regulars for Season 10, leaving Tina Majorino the only intern he wasn’t given the bump in status. The reason behind this wasn’t readily apparent, but it could be due to her availability. She’s currently starring on TNT’s Legends and just recently signed up to reprise her role as Mac on the Veronica Mar ...

Who's In & Who's Out?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 10 will see more of some of the Grey Sloan Memorial interns, but not everyone. Recurring stars Camilla Luddington (Jo Wilson), Gaius Charles (Shane Ross), Jerrika Hinton (Stephanie Edwards) and Tessa Ferrer (Leah Murphy) have all been promoted to series regulars for the upcoming tenth season of the Shonda Rhimes medical drama, ABC has confirmed to HuffPost TV. All four actors joined the series at the start of Season 9, as did Tina Majorino, who recurred as Heather Brooks on "Grey's Anatomy." Majorino -- who joined the "Veronica Mars" movie this week, reprising her role as Mac -- is signed on as a series regular for TNT's "Legends," starring "Game of Thrones" alum Sean Bean, which will debut in 2014. Because of that commitment, her fate for Season 10 of "Grey's Anatomy" is unknown at this time, an ABC rep told HuffPost TV. In Season 9 of the ABC series, Stephanie was a love interest for Jackson (Jesse Williams); Brooks and Ross were vying for Dr ...

'Grey's Anatomy' Scoop: 'Callie Isn't A Victim'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Grey's Anatomy" fans have a lot to be worried about for Season 10. But one of their biggest concerns after the Season 9 finale earlier this month is the fate of fan-favorite couple Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Callie (Sara Ramirez). In the finale, titled "Perfect Storm," Arizona cheated on Callie with Lauren (Hilarie Burton), which Callie found out after seeing Arizona's engagement ring pinned on Lauren's shirt. (That's how the couple prevents their rings from getting in the way during surgeries.) At the end of the finale, couple had a fight that revealed emotions that have been suppressed for months: Arizona clearly has yet to forgive her wife for breaking her promise that she'd save Arizona's leg after the plane crash that ended Season 8. "What the bigger question is, is what's Callie going to do next?" "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes told The Hollywood Reporter of Season 10. "Callie isn't a victim; she's never really been a victim, and she's been cheated on b ...

'There's A Lot Of Emotional Death'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
When the promo for next week's "Grey's Anatomy" aired Thursday night, fans panicked after seeing a pregnant Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) slip and fall on the stairs at the hospital. Now, showrunner Shonda Rhimes is hinting that "Grey's Anatomy" viewers have reason to worry about Meredith's baby. "She has that fall, and that starts a string of events that is cause for concern," Rhimes told TV Guide. "Then, in the finale, we have the storm hit and the conditions under which Meredith Grey has to go into labor are the exact opposite of any conditions under which anybody ever in the world would want to have to give birth ... It's also a really beautiful story, and I think Ellen did amazing work on it and I'm really excited about it." Considering how challenging it was for Meredith to get pregnant, it seems only fitting that giving birth would be an equal challenge. But with the official episode description for the "Grey's Anatomy" Season 9 finale (below) teasing that "one of the d ...

White Collar's Season Finale Is In An Empire State of Mind

White Collar's Season Finale Is In An Empire State of Mind Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 6:33 am, Tuesday, March 5, 2013 The hunt for a stash of evidence that could finally clear Neal's long-MIA dad sends Season 4 of USA's criminally lovable caper series White Collar out on a dramatic high point Tuesday (10/9c), both figuratively and literally. What leads the action to Manhattan's much-visited locale is a twisty con designed to help Peter (Tim DeKay) snag a hidden lockbox loaded with proof that James (Treat Williams) was framed for killing his supervising officer back in the day before shady Senator Pratt (Titus Welliver) can. Along the way, there is a staged romantic gesture that "becomes a little too real" for Matt Bomer's Neal and Hilarie Burton's Sara, a classic Mozzie (Willie Garson) moment ...

Aleida Fernandez: An Avid Viewer's Guide to this Season's Hallmark Holiday Movies
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Coming home from school for the holidays, it is obvious that there is something in the air. Is it my family's excitement at having me home? The love from all our family togetherness? The delicious smells from my mom's Thanksgiving dinner? No! It's the beginning of Hallmark's endless Christmas-themed holiday movie season! The day after Thanksgiving marked the start of a long-honored family tradition in my household: marathon viewing of Hallmark Christmas movies from the past and the new batch of made-for-TV movies. Beginning at 7 p.m. every Friday night an endless stream of Holiday cheer is played all weekend, and there's nothing quite like the cheesiness of a standard Hallmark TV movie set during the Christmas season to really get me in the Holiday mood. Taken at face value, Hallmark holiday movies are a soul- and time-sucking endeavor, only viewed by those who are either extremely bored or extremely depressed. But Hallmark has provided me with life lessons (albeit very ...

Anne Hathaway and Leighton Meester make for two very beautiful brides-to-be -- on screen, that is. The brunette actresses both donned Vera Wang for their characters' big days, in Bride Wars and Gossip Girl, respectively. The women are part of a large list of actresses who have tied the knot on camera. (Other stars include Ringer's Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ugly Betty's Vanessa Williams and Twilight's Kristen Stewart.) PHOTOS: CELEBRITIES' TV AND MOVIE WEDDING DRESSES And who could forget the moment when Kate Hudson set her sights on her dream dress in 2009's Bride Wars? Though she couldn't quite fit in the small size, her character Liv Lerner famously proclaimed, "You don't alter Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit Vera!" Hudson, 33, isn't the first actress to play a frazzled bride. In 2009, Jenna Fischer's pregnant Pam Beesly grew so frustrated with her squabbling family and zany co-workers that she and her fiance, Jim Halpert (John Krasinski), decided to run away. The ...

No offense to <a class="fplink fp-43327" href="/chad+michael+murray+1">Chad Michael Murray</a> and <a class="fplink fp-115819" href="/hilarie+burton+1">Hilarie Burton</a>, but I actually liked the series better after they left. Not because they weren’t great, but because I really like Quinn, Clay, &amp; Julian. And I love that they were able to put more depth into Mouth’s character because they not had room for it. I’ll be happy to see them again if that’s the case, but I do love the characters they have now. As for Jake and Karen and the rest of them…let them go. They really would have no place in the story line anymore. I would love to see whitey again just for old time’s sake tho, lol
