IN OTHER NEWS

Jim Parsons will star in the upcoming magic comedy Man-Witch, which in the past had been attached to both Jack Black and Zach Galifianikis.

“The story tells of a schoolteacher (Parsons) who abruptly discovers he’s got witchlike powers. A coven of real witches takes him in, promptly sending him to “witch school,” where he is the lone adult, surrounded by little girl witches-in-training.”


Great news for fans of Hit The Floor. Last week’s season finale left lots of cliffhangers, including what would become of Jude and Zero now that Zero has been traded. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait another year (or more) to find out, as VH1 has announced that a one-hour special will air this summer, and we’ll see where Zude are headed.

The “Catholic League” targets Real O’Neals star Martha Plimpton. Just when I thought I couldn’t love Martha Plimton more.


Nate Berkus and husband Jeremiah Brent will star in their first home design show together this fall, TLC’s Married To Design: Nate And Jeremiah.

“Though the married couple – who welcomed their daughter Poppy last March – both have experience on separate home shows, this will be their first venture into TV together.

The show, debuting this fall, will follow Berkus and Brent (and Poppy!) inside their own home and during their adventures helping distressed homeowners turn their money pits into dream homes.”

Ben Whishaw opened in the revival of The Crucible on Broadway yesterday, and is receiving rave reviews.

“The English actor is astounding in Arthur Miller’s classic tale about the Salem witch trials. He plays doomed farmer John Proctor and holds nothing back, going from slightly arrogant to flustered to full-out broken over the course of the play, a master stroke by a 35-year-old making his Broadway debut.”

Here’s the Friday Puzzler! “Cabana Boy”


And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay and bisexual celebs who deserve more recognition.

This week our 159th ShoutOUT™ is to … John Early

Closing out our week with John, we’ll soon get the chance to see him every week. His pilot Search Party has been picked up to series by TBS, and will debut later this year.

 


Most Briefs lists involve the “best” or “greatest” of something, so for a change let’s switch it up, as Evil Snicks brings you The 30 Worst Music Videos Of All Time.

You’ll see debacles from major musical artists, as well as a few Youtube “stars.” Sure, it’s really easy to pick on desperate wannabes. It’s fun, too. But it proves that terrible can run the gamut from multi-million dollar productions to, well, a certain video named after a day of the week. You know the one.

At #26 is “The King That Never Was” by Alternate Reality.

Looking like the beginning of an amateur porn, “The King That Never Was” is unintentionally hilarious throughout. The best part is this tidbit from the YT page: “Interesting factoids: The video features 20 actors, 3.5 lawyers, 4 Slovenians, 4 lead singers, 7 employees from 4 Cleveland area law firms, 3 horses, and one historic castle.”
 


Congrats to Carlos, who guessed that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Sabrina The Teenage Witch.
