Afternoon Delight: NBC wins bidding war over Ryan Murphy and Allison Adler’s gay family comedy, Jessie J wins at MOBO Awards

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to actress Kelly Preston! Didn’t Preston and Famke Janssen make an adorable couple in the film Eulogy?

NBC has won the bidding war for a "heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family" to be written by Glee creator Ryan Murphy and Glee‘s lesbian co-executive producer Allison Adler and directed by Murphy. According to Deadline.com, "Murphy and Adler conceived the idea for the comedy drawing on their real-life experiences having a family or looking to have one." We’ll keep you posted as we get more info on the project.

Out actress Amber Heard is in the November Vanity Fair. (Heard could really injure someone with those high-heels.)

Jane Lynch made a guest appearance on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 for a very important discussion with students who aren’t allowed to discuss homosexuality in their school. (This video is heartbreaking.)

The full trailer for Carnage has arrived. Jodie Foster and Kate Winslet go head-to-head in director Roman Polanski’s dramedy, due in theaters December 16.
