5 Things You Didn’t Know About Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Huffington Post - 27 days
For Vogue, by MARIA WARD. This week, Julia Louis-Dreyfus celebrated her 56th birthday. You may think you know her well, after seeing her on your living room TV screen for decades, but did you know that the award-winning actress got her first taste of comedy at age 3? It was midway through a dance class, when a wee Louis-Dreyfus forgot the steps to her routine and was delighted to find that it made people laugh: “Of course, my mother was mortified, but I thought it was real good! And I stuck with that choreography for the rest of the class,” she once told a reporter. Here, in honor of her birthday, five other things you may not have known about Julia Louis-Dreyfus. 1. Seinfeld writers thought Elaine’s dance moves might kill Louis-Dreyfus’s career. Show writer Spike Feresten later told The Huffington Post that Seinfeld creator Larry David was not a fan of the eighth season episode “The Little Kicks,” in which Elaine dances; he only got approval on the story line after David left. ...

Cast Of 'Will & Grace' Reportedly In Talks For Ten-Episode Revival
Huffington Post - 4 months
Grab a bottle of vodka and a bowl of popcorn, because “Will & Grace” could be coming back to television (or laptop screen) near you!  Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are all in early talks for a 10-episode revival of the hit show that originally ran from 1998 to 2006, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Evidently, eight seasons of the Emmy-winning sitcom just weren’t enough for fans, who collectively freaked out when the gang got together for a mini-reunion episode in September. The 10 minute video garnered 6.2 million views, signaling that viewers are still very, very invested in Will, Grace, Jack and Karen.  The four stars, along with series creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, haven’t officially signed on to do anything yet ― and there’s always the chance that talks could fall through. But Debra Messing told THR back in September that she would “never say never” to a revival. And it sounds l ...

Nick Offerman Is The Definition Of Manliness And This Sign Proves It
Huffington Post - about 1 year
To many of his fans, actor and author Nick Offerman is the picture of a real man. Now there's a restroom sign to prove it. A public bathroom in Madurai, India, appears to be using an image of the mustachioed "Parks and Recreation" star to mark its men's toilet. Michelle Johnson Blimes, of Pickerington, Ohio, photographed the sign after spotting it during her family vacation last month. "Do you think Nick Offerman knows his image is being used in Madurai, India, to label the men's bathroom?" Blimes asked on Facebook. The picture went viral and eventually grabbed the attention of the man himself. Unlike his wood-whittling "Parks and Rec" character Ron Swanson -- a fierce personal privacy advocate -- Offerman didn't seem too disturbed that his face was being featured in such a way. In fact, he actually appeared to like it: #Namaste https://t.co/9tCvPYtPmA — Nick Offerman (@Nick_Offerman) January 16, 2016 It's not the first time Offerman's image has ...
