Morning Brew – Thursday, August 11: Naya Rivera brings “A” to “Glee”, Emily gets dirty in the “Pretty Little Liars” finale

This morning, I would like to present you with the greatest thing you will ever see in your life. During the press tour for Glee: 3D, Andrew Freund asked Glee’s cast which one of them is the biggest practical joker. Answer: Naya Rivera Why: Because she bought a second cell phone, didn’t give anyone the number, and started texted everyone pretending to be “A” from Pretty Little Liars. See for yourself:

Rivera is also glamming it up in the latest edition of InStyle magazine.

Check out her full photoshoot!

Speaking of Pretty Little Liars, last night ABC Family dropped some promo shots for the mid-season finale, and what in the world?

If I am not very much mistaken, those are the muddy dresses from the season two promo poster. Ooh, I love this show.

OK, maybe I lied in my opening paragraph. Maybe this video is the greatest thing you will ever se in your life. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at Sasha Alexander and Angie Harmon dancing on the set of Rizzoli & Isles. It’ll get your heart thumping this morning, that’s for sure.

Sony has rolled out the first character images for its version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, including Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander and Salander’s sometimes girlfriend Miriam Wu.

Warner Brothers was dropping images like candy last night too. They released the first still from their upcoming Love Actually remake holiday cornucopia, New Year’s Eve. And guess who it is? Ms. Lea Michele and Mr. Bon Jovi.

Tony-Award-winning producer Peter Schneider (from The Lion King and Sister Act) is getting ready to launch the east coast premiere of The Break-Up Notebook: The Lesbian Musical. The show will run from September 8 – 25 at NJ’s The Carousel House as part of a special team-up with ReVision Theatre.

Here’s a synopsis of the musical:

The Break-Up Notebook story revolves around Helen Hill, a thirty-three year old lesbian who has recently been dumped. She is heartbroken, she’s stunned and she’s determined to go out there and do it all over again. So with the support of her best gay boyfriend, Bob and her butch femme gal pals, Monica and Joanie she jumps back into the dating pool. And what she finds takes her a bit by surprise … two-stepping twelve-steppers, anxiety prone lawyers, a dominatrix, Match.com, dental dams, grrrl bands, rebound bad dates, rebound great dates, hot girl on girl action, and maybe … just maybe … somewhere out there … Helen might find the girl of her dreams.
