Happy birthday to Glee’s Lea Michele (25) and Sucker Punch’s Carla Gugino (40.) Over the weekend Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson celebrated her 42nd birthday.
The L Word‘s Katherine Moennig (aka Shane McCutcheon) stars in not one, but two upcoming thrillers. First up is Default. The intense film centers around a news crew that is held hostage on an airplane. Yikes! Next up is Gone, co-starring Red Riding Hood’s Amanda Seyfried.
Seyfried stars as Jill, a woman who was once kidnapped by a serial killer and is now dealing with her sister’s disappearance. Seyfried assumes the serial killer has taken her sister and goes after him. Um, why isn’t this serial killer in jail? Amanda, seriously girl, this doesn’t sound safe. Let the police do their job and you should go back to making out with Megan Fox like you did in Jennifer’s Body. Sincerely, Bridget. P.S. If you have any outtakes from that make out scene, can you please send them my way?
Speaking of thrillers, Colombiana actress Zoe Saldana is set to star in and produce Dominion. Little information about Dominion has been released, but I do know that Saldana will play a half-human, half-angel character in this sci-fi flick.
Tonight, out frontwoman Abisha Uhl and her all-female band Sick of Sarah will be performing live in Austin, TX alongside Vanity Theft and Hunter Valentine. The show starts at 7 p.m. at Emos (603 Red River).
The lovely Sarah Michelle Gellar graces the cover of the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. The former Buffy star tells the mag about her new series Ringer, her annoyance with wearing high heels (tell me about it!) and the lack of complex roles for women in the entertainment industry.
Gellar says, “That was a bit of a letdown for me after Buffy. I thought: ‘The roles are going to be just like that. You’re not going to get stuck playing “the girlfriend” or “the wife,” you’re going to get these three-dimensional characters.’ But truthfully, those roles are very rare. It’s a better time for actresses on TV than on film.”
Ringer premieres September 13 on The CW.
This Just Out’s Liz Feldman is one of the writers for the upcoming CBS series 2 Broke Girls, created by comedian Whitney Cummings. The comedy series stars Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings as two down-and-out twentysomethings who work at a Brooklyn diner. The show premieres Monday, September 19 at 9:30 pm. Will you support Feldman by tuning in to watch?
In an interview with HollywoodNews.com, Jane Lynch confirmed that, yes, her memoir is in fact funny (duh!) and she credited her wife, psychologist Lara Embry for its “brilliance.” (My word not hers.) Lynch said, “You’ll have a chuckle. It’s called Happy Accidents, and my wife made it readable.” Lynch also revealed that her Glee character, Sue Sylvester, will be running for political office on the Emmy Award-winning show. Lynch said, “Yes. She’s going to run on the platform of, ‘Let’s get rid of the arts and cut all the entitlements.’ She’s basically running as Michele Bachmann without the crazy ‘I hate homosexuals’ bit.”
Last night Beyoncé announced in front of the entire world that she is pregnant. Congratulations are in order or you could make the singer’s announcement awkward like Ellen DeGeneres did by taking to Twitter.
Tomorrow, the complete first season of Nikita will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD. If you love Maggie Q and her ass-kicking skills, get ready for the new season of Nikita, premiering Friday, September 23.

Comedian Chelsea Handler’s best selling book Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea has been made into an NBC sitcom starring Laura Prepon (That ’70s Show) as the blonde lead. Check out the show’s preview featuring a kiss between Prepon and Glee’s Dot Jones. Is it just me or does Dot Jones look like she could be Fortune Feimster’s older sister?
