Hmmm. I’m sensing there’s more to the story here – maybe she had to share a trailer with Angus? Or she was forced to wear Marina’s fedora whenever she wasn’t shooting? Or maybe an on-set romance went sour…
AMERICA’S NEXT TOP STRAIGHT MODEL
ROOT FOR THIS PILOT OR PERISH, SWEATER MONKEYS
The good news for us? One of the four women, Caitlin, falls head over heels for a woman she hires, and the two share a steamy kiss in the pilot. Who knows if it will still be steamy after the network censors have their way, but ABC is currently airing the best gay male storyline in American TV history, so I’m optimistic.
More good news for us? Bring It On director Peyton Reed is directing the pilot. We’ll have to wait until May to find out if ABC picks up the series, and there’s no casting news yet, but readers of Entertainment Weekly’s blog are already speculating on possible leads, including Lauren Graham, Lucy Liu, and Aisha Tyler. Any one of those women would be great on the show, but since we’re creating wish lists, how about Jessica Alba for Caitlin? Or Jennifer Garner? I wouldn’t kick either of those women out of my office for being sexually inappropriate.
And Portia de Rossi can play the seductive new hire–and as long as she doesn’t ruin the mood by doing the chicken dance.
