Rachael Leigh Cook: I’m Happy We Waited to Have a Baby
Celebrity Babies - People - over 3 years
Joe Scarnici/Getty After tying the knot in 2004, Rachael Leigh Cook and her husband Daniel Gillies are “so excited” to be expecting a baby — but that’s because they waited. “We got married incredibly fast,” the actress, 33, told PEOPLE from the set of her TNT crime-drama, Perception. “We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple of months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives.” Although many people were waiting to see her pregnant — Cook says that after announcing she was expecting, many reactions included “Finally!” — she insists she and the Vampire Diaries star, 37, have no regrets waiting almost a decade into their marriage to add a baby carriage. “We’re both people who like kids, but we weren’t jumping up and down, like, ‘Oh my God, let’s start that chapter of our lives,’” she explains. “We weren’t those kind of people. Now that we know wh ...

'Vampire Diaries' Star Daniel Gillies Teases Elijah's Season Four Return
MTV News - over 4 years
Things are going to get a bit crazy when "The Vampire Diaries" returns for its fourth season on October 11. There's the fact that you know who became a vampire, a certain someone has possessed another certain someone, and Elena has seemingly picked one Salvatore brother over the other. But while we're interested in the resolution of all of those plot points, we're also curious what the status of the Original Family is now that everyone thinks Klaus is dead (like it ever would be that easy). We recently had the chance to catch up with Daniel Gillies, the actor who plays brother Elijah, and asked him what we can expect from the Original vampire siblings in the coming season. Consider this your cue to stop reading if you aren't caught up on "The Vampire Diaries." Daniel revealed that he had just come back from "The Vampire Diaries" set where he filmed a flashback scene set in the 11th century. He wouldn't dish what it was about, but he did say fans should "buckle up and get ready fo ...

Junk TV Round-Up – PERCEPTION, HEMLOCK GROVE, DAMAGES, THE CLOSER
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Premiering tonight on TNT is Perception, the next in a long line of procedurals where a by-the-book law enforcement agent is paired with a nutty nut-nut who brings a new perspective to cases and helps us learn to laugh about love again (The X-Files, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, even House–you get the idea).  In the case of Perception, we have late-’90s sweetface Rachael Leigh Cook, a name I’ve given little thought to since I worked at a video store in my early 20s.  I can’t really form an opinion on her, therefore (not that that’s ever stopped me), but given that Anna Chlumsky has managed through Veep to get me to take her seriously, I don’t see why Cook couldn’t do the same.  As her outside-the-box partner is Eric McCormack as a schizophrenic yet brilliant professor of neuroscience.  McCormack is most well-known of course for his titular role on Will & Grace, but I always thought the guy was a bit wasted on a sit-c0m, even an above-average one like that.  TNT has been tryin ...
