Morning Brew – Tuesday, March 22: Ellen Page & Liv Tyler get close at “Super” premiere, Chely Wright’s doc to show in Nashville

Morning!

Did you watch the Pretty Little Liars finale last night? No spoilers here, just asking! If you’re wondering how the show came to be, and if there’s a possible movie in the works, read Deadline.com’s interview with out showrunner Marlene King. One of my favorite questions asked is where ABC Family draws the line on their scandalous storylines. Marlene’s answer:

They definitely do. They draw the line at bad behavior without consequences. That is their line. If someone shows bad behavior, it can’t go unpunished or unnoticed. A storyline we were really proud of from last season was Emily’s ‘coming out’. It seemed to be embraced in large part by our audience in a very positive way. Now Emily is just Emily who happens to date girls. Our characters are really true to the books, and that was Emily’s character. But next season we want to tackle the issue of teen depression. We are trying to, every year, find something that matters.

In a different interview, Shay Mitchell answers if we’ve seen the last of Maya:

I don’t think so. I mean, even if people leave Rosewood, they always end up coming back some way or another. We’ll have to wait and see, but I know there are a lot of Maya fans.

Then again, she also admitted they know next to nothing about Season 2, so she really is in the dark about that one. We do know that there will be more Paige, though, as Marlene King Tweeted last week. And I’m glad about that, because it’s so weird when lesbian characters just disappear on TV shows. Like WTF ever happened to Gia on 90210?

“By the way, Adrianna, if you break up with me, I will quit school and you’ll never see me again.”

Sofia Black-d’Elia was at the premiere of Win-Win last night, wearing a fierce leather jacket.

However, she wasn’t alone.

Tony, leave her alone! (I’m kidding, I know Skins isn’t real life. I know, I’m an anomaly. That kind of sounds like “Naomily.”)

Cherry Jones has scored a role on NBC’s new pilot, R.E.M. She’ll play a psychologist to the lead character, who has survived a traumatic car accident and whose wife has been murdered. He’s a little crazed, understandably. Also on the show: BD Wong, the out gay actor from Law & Order: SVU.

There are no chefbians on Co-Ed magazine’s list of 7 Hottest Celebrity Chefs. Therefore, it is completely incorrect.

WIsh Me Away, the documentary about Chely Wright, will debut at the Nashville Film Festival next month. Here’s the trailer:

If you’re in the area, make sure to score tickets for the first showing on April 15 or the encore on April 17.

The Super premiere went down in LA last night and this happened.


Co-stars Ellen Page and Liv Tyler either planned their similar ensembles, or they have similar sensibilities.

New York band WOJCIK has an out frontwoman and a sweet new video for their LCD Soundsystem cover, “I Can Change.”
