Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

27 Oct

TV Instagram mourns those lost on The Walking Dead (spoilers ahead), celebrates a birthday on Game of Thrones, gets excited about A+ guest stars and has a whole lot of style on and off set.

A post shared by Lauren Cohan (@laurencohan) on

 

The biggest TV event this week was the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead and even though I quit watching last year the first thing I checked after the episode aired was the identity of the departed. The Walking Dead is a show I generally keep up with just in case I ever want to go back and this is mostly through the Richonne tag on Tumblr.

My other favorite character is/was Glenn and this photo by Steven Yeun’s TV wife, Lauren Cohan is a heartbreaker. I am very excited to see what Yeun will be doing next.

@cudlitz

A post shared by Steven Yeun (@steveyeun) on

 

Steven Yeun paid tribute to the other Negan victim from the TWD season premiere in a very cool atmospheric shot of Michael Cudlitz.

 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returned last week with a fantastic episode (and songs) and everything about this photo fills me with joy.

 

And in excellent Crazy Ex-Girlfriend casting news I offer you the above.

From Graeme Manson on Twitter: “If you go out in the woods today… #CloneClub #OrphanBlack”

A post shared by Orphan Black (@orphanblacktv) on

 

If I *had* to pick a favorite clone it would be Helena and I cannot wait to see more of her adventures in the woods with Donnie and Alison.

 

Paparazzi got some BIG photos this week while Game of Thrones was shooting (don’t click this link if you want to remain spoiler free – I have SO many costuming thoughts). This is not these photos and there is something very unnerving about Dora and SpongeBob hanging in Westeros.

Get ready for an onslaught of Halloween celeb photos after this weekend, but meanwhile enjoy the SNL ladies and this fabulous sketch. While I’m on the subject of this holiday; check out my piece on teen TV classics, costumes and growing up.

My first solo billboard in New York and it's in the middle of Times Square!! Leaping with joy! #voiceofthecurves

A post shared by Danielle Brooks (@daniebb3) on

 

Everything about this is stunning.

 

I’m enjoying this season of The Last Man on Earth as much as I’m enjoying Will Forte’s drawn on eyebrows and Carol’s fabulous top. So that is a lot and it will be fun to see what the new location will bring.

 

Also high on the fun list is Timeless and it continues to capture the same feelings that early Sleepy Hollow gave me; the core cast is just as delightful.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine blast from the past.

 

I still need to watch the I Love Dick pilot on Amazon, but knowing Phoebe Robinson is going to be in it when the full season lands makes me even more eager to do so.

 

Abbi Jacobson and Jon Glaser serving up very different interpretations of talk show style with Glaser opting for something from Jon Glaser Loves Gear. In non-shocking news, I am very excited about Abbi’s new book.

That was golden! @Elleusa Women In Hollywood #GlamShed #ELLEWIH

A post shared by Lupita Nyong'o (@lupitanyongo) on

 

Lupita not only stuns on the red carpet, but she also gifts us with a closer look at her Elle “Women in Hollywood” celebration ensemble.

 

Also from the Elle “Women in Hollywood” event is this perfectly understandable reaction to Lupita Nyong’o from Yara Shahidi.

Perfect fall style from Game of Thrones’ Carice van Houten.

A great example of the #soviet fashion of the early 1980s. Love the obvious 1940s influence!

The fact that this card was found by Elisabeth Moss makes it even better.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

19 Oct

Jane the Virgin returned this week much to my teary eyed joy and this cast continues to deliver on the social media behind the scenes front. Plus we have a week of super stylish moments including Insta postcards from Cannes, costume secrets and more.

 

Kicking off again with Gil and George because I really want to see Oh, Hello again and because the guest stars keep on coming. Care Delevingne (just know I’m doing the Reese voice) is essentially wearing lounge wear including boob slippers, which actually feels entirely appropriate for this show.

Family. #janethevirgin #season3

A post shared by Yael Grobglas (@yaelgrobglas) on

 

The cast that watches their season premiere together, stays together.

 

From the Jane the Virgin season 3 premiere and what the cast looks like all aged up. Just let it be known that this was the part of the episode where I went from welling up, to single tear and quickly followed by double eye sobbing. This show.

Grace Kelly and Cary Grant back on the lot. #JaneTheVirgin #YouThoughtYouKnewYouHaveNoIdea

While I am strongly Team Michael this is very flame emoji and I cannot wait for whatever fantasy sequence will deliver this costuming delight.

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

It is going to be a while until Game of Thrones comes back so this will have to do for now.

 

Abigail Spencer has a whole lot of Timeless behind the scenes photos on her Insta including this incredible look at the costume detail from the Lincoln episode.

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

There’s a new Crazy Ex-Girlfriend theme and while I’m definitely going to miss singing along to “she’s so broken inside” I really love the aesthetic and vibe of this new one.

Aww. Many hrs of prosthetics and silly outfit stuff. @janiebryant

A post shared by @azizansari on

 

Stranger Things kids are in big demand and the height difference here just made me laugh a lot.

 

I also appreciate the fact that actors will freak out over other actors. Also still so here for Henry Jennings in a turtleneck.

 

Chris Geere also demonstrating good internal freak out here.

Step one. Bow tie. Thank you @zegnaofficial #emmys2016

Maisie Williams didn’t win, but she did get an edible Emmy. Sounds pretty great to me.

 

Lots of getting ready Emmy stories including Keri Russell’s make-up routine. Her eyebrows in this shot are giving me inspiration for the big day on Saturday.

 

Yara Shahidi was one of our best dressed over the weekend and she switched things up after the awards giving a detailed photo diary of her Emmy night for Elle.

More Alia Shawkat and the Rachel Antonoff Betty and Veronica collection was showcased in a super fun and imaginative way, with Shawkat being one of the models.

Thank you so much @britandco & @tracy_reese for my very first #NYFW!!! I had an amazing time covering this one of a kind garden fashion show/presentation, I got to talk to Whoopi Goldberg and @thesheertruth, bump into @elleusa superstar @nikkiogun, check out the models, which were a collection of professional peeps and everyday women, plus my Spanx stayed in place the whole time, and Tracy, who has dressed FLOTUS, gifted me with three dresses. ANYWAY! Stay tuned for my videos covering this amazing show. I'll be posting them soon. And start pre-ordering clothes from Tracy's new collection.

All eyes are on Belfast to see which Game of Thrones cast members are heading to Northern Ireland for season 7 and while this bar hang is not a guarantee that Sansa and Arya will reunite any time soon, I can but dream. I am also here for Maisie William’s double drink choice of a cocktail and what looks like a hot beverage.

The month of everything happening continues with the Toronto Film Festival and Hidden Figures is on my most anticipated list (see also La La LandManchester by the SeaColossal and Jackie). Glen Powell is pretty much the main reason I stuck with Scream Queens and he’s got the best co-star hangouts at TIFF.

 

Top notch prom posing skills.

Watching the season finale with my #Braindead babes!! @nikkimjames @paigeisapeach @efromthed

A post shared by Mary Elizabeth Winstead (@mewins) on

 

I’m still confident in saying that BrainDead was my favorite show of the summer and while I am sad it is probably done, the finale kept up the absurd/fun/weird/sexy/amazing costume levels.

 

Is Liv getting a zombie dog? This is a serious cutie.

 

Masters of Sex returned this week with a promising start to the season after last year’s messiness. Niecy Nash was a welcome presence and she won’t put up with Bill’s self-pity.

Cole at rest.

The boots and jeans look works well on Joshua Jackson so thank you, Affair costume department.

Instagram delivers on the TV style front, film festival glamour and on set singing this week. Plus find out some intimate You’re the Worst information and the usual amount of sweater and lipstick coveting.

 

The Leftovers is still shooting its final season out in Australia and I am glad to see Justin Theroux will be sporting his beard throughout. Liv Tyler captures him here working the leopard print in the hair and makeup trailer.

It has been a bit of a Leftovers watching week as I got the second season for my birthday and I wrote about Kevin’s karaoke here.

The kids from Stranger Things crushed their appearance on The Tonight Show and Questlove captures some of the backstage madness in this group selfie.

 

Still no details about who Matthew Rhys is playing on Girls but here he is shooting a scene with Lena Dunham, beard and all.

A post shared by Backstage (@backstagecast) on

 

You’re the Worst returned last week with a fabulous episode and the cast took over the Backstage Instagram. There’s plenty of behind the scenes videos including Chris Geere showing off a modesty pouch/cock sock. He definitely had to wear one in the season premiere.

 

Standard lipstick and sunglasses envy.

 

Chris Geere was also understandably excited to make his talk show debut on The Late Show.

 

One of my favorite costume designers with one of my favorite actresses. Looking forward to seeing what this pairing brings.

 

Now for one of my makeup artist faves with another Orange is the New Black stars and this series of photos of Natasha Lyonne are fantastic.

A real man doesn't shy away from the high notes. #RaJor #Wham!

The iZombie set continues to deliver on the fun and the songs.

 

Greg Williams delivers once again on intimate photographs from the Venice Film Festival and here are a few of my favorites. Starting with Jake getting ready, just because.

 

Getting up close with super couple Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. Luckily this dress doesn’t require some awkward lying down.

 

When in Venice you’ve got to have a boat shot. For more from Greg Williams check out his portraits from the festival at Vanity Fair.

31 Aug

Fall TV premiere dates inch closer – and You’re the Worst is back tonight! – and so plenty of behind the scenes promo is occurring. Plus fabulous guest stars, guest directors and one show is almost forever finished shooting.

 

A lot of beard to kick off this week’s Insta highlights with Kristofer Hivju and Michael Fassbender. Future Fassy in Game of Thrones possibilities are probably low, but this wouldn’t be his first HBO venture as he was in a couple of Band of Brothers episodes.

And then Zooey Deschanel under an umbrella wearing a headband and check shirt look that I will no doubt be after when this episode airs.

 

Also back the same week on Fox is Empire and Taraji P. Henson gives a little costume sneak peek featuring some very large hooped earrings.

To be filed under “this is kind of cool, but also creepy as fuck.”

 

Eva Longoria is directing an episode of Jane the Virgin this season and everyone is very pleased with this. Also the amount of Brett Dier popping up in these shots would suggest Michael is not going to be dearly departed.

WOMENS EQUALITY DAY!!! #womensequalityday #janethevirgin

A post shared by Yael Grobglas (@yaelgrobglas) on

 

And a ladies only version. I am thrilled to see Bridget Regan kicking it on set.

 

While we won’t get to see the final season of Girls until early next year, the show is currently wrapping up and these final days are getting the Instagram treatment.

 

And polaroids to mark Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke’s last day shooting.

 

BrainDead continues to be my favorite show of the summer, but the last two weeks have been lacking any Gustav so hopefully the next episode will rectify this.

 

Happy You’re the Worst Day! I am so ready.

Season 2 inizia adesso! (Season 2 begins now!) #MasterofNone

A post shared by @azizansari on

 

It seems like a good sign that Aziz Ansari has not rushed making season 2 of Master of None. And that they will be shooting in Italy. Once again I am going to want to eat all the pasta.

“The recognition was such a shock in the first place, but the outrage was the most shocking for me. That people actually cared whether I was nominated or not, that they felt they had a stake in it, I think that was such a testament to our fans who are so supportive of us. They’re the only reason we have a show because they sort of forced people to watch (laughs). The critics have been good too. We’re really lucky to have been championed by people who have some influence on what people watch. For me, it felt like it was for the fans that that nomination came through; it really felt like a communal thing, it was for us that the show got recognized. But by no means did I ever expect it, or seek it out, or think I deserved it. It’s a world I don’t necessarily feel part of. I’m just baffled to be in the company of actors like Robin Wright—it’s wild to me. These are women who’ve been working for years, who have such a body of work and such a legacy, and are changing television. It’s just really surreal to be in that company.” -@TatianaMaslany for AwardsLine @Deadline #OrphanBlack #EmmyForMaslany

A post shared by Orphan Black (@orphanblacktv) on

 

Emmy campaigning continues and Deadline has another interview to be savored. This time it is with Tatiana Maslany and the above quote and series of images is a pretty good example of why we heart Maslany hard. To read the whole wonderful interview head here.

Midweek Instagram TV highlights this week include some of our weekly faves with the iZombie and You’re the Worst cast continuing their behind the scenes photo domination. Plus style highs from Yara Shahidi, James Wolk wrapped in blankets and my new costume obsession.

70's jane.

A post shared by Gina Rodriguez (@hereisgina) on

 

A combination of so many of my favorite things and Gina Rodriguez suits this styling so well. Between this and The Get Down (see more of that below) my seventies clothing obsession is alive and well.

And we're back. But which one is she? #Petra or #anezka #janethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

More Jane the Virgin set antics and the return of Petra (or could it be her evil twin? – I heart this plot twist so much). Always wine.

THERE she is. #BTS #Scandal #oliviapope

A post shared by Kerry Washington (@kerrywashington) on

 

While we’re on the subject of wine; one of TV’s biggest wine drinkers has a full glass (of grape juice) on the set of Scandal and it sounds like I need to catch up after reading this Entertainment Weekly season 6 post (I keep quitting and coming back).

 

This sounds like everything I would ever want from a Marnie storyline. She would be so perfect for this.

Keep a look out for me as the evil twin on The Americans next season.

A post shared by Judd Apatow (@juddapatow) on

 

Matthew Rhys and his glorious beard are guest starring on the final season of Girls. Sadly no details are available yet so time to conjure up your best pairing for him. I am not so secretly hoping he will have something to do with Adam. Fun connection time – Matthew Rhys and Adam Driver shared the stage back in 2012 in Look Back in Anger and this also happened to be the play that got the Americans casting director interested in Rhys for Philip Jennings.

TV Instagram is busy again with a lot of shows back from hiatus and this week’s behind the scenes highlights include Jane the VirginYou’re the Worst and iZombie. Plus we have TCA style, Rachel Bloom’s male gaze take on casting notices and a Sex and the City project I do want to see.

 

Joining the ranks of those returning to work is the Jane the Virgin cast and there is a notable person sitting at that table.

We're baaaaack…. #janethevirgin #season3

More Jane the Virgin delights with almost hat twins Yael Grobglas and Gina Rodriguez. It looks like someone will be wearing a wig for at least the start of the season.

Goodbye hiatus beard. See you soon @cwjanethevirgin

A post shared by Justin Baldoni (@justinbaldoni) on

 

While we’re on the subject of changing hair and it will come as no surprise that I love a good hiatus beards, but there is not much that can be done to hide this level of grizzle. For Justin Baldoni the beard now only exists in the form of old photos and future hiatus dreams.

Here's the casting breakdown for the male characters of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" written with a male gaze.

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

After posting a photo of the super depressing casting notices from Backstage, Rachel Bloom wrote some very similar sounding descriptions for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend characters but with a male gaze. “Singing a plus.”

The You’re the Worst season 3 countdown continues and these details from their TCA panel have got me even more excited.

Hey, the gang's all here! #YoureTheWorst (📸by @bellina13 )

You’re the Worst group shot with a hint of fancy costuming; big party episode alert?

 

Continuing their behind the brains hot streak; here is iZombie’s Robert Buckley doing Rose McIver a solid by looking after her hair clips.

They also have some pretty amazing location views when they get out of the morgue.

The #Transparent cast really is one big, happy family in real life

A post shared by TV Guide (@tvguide) on

 

It was announced at TCA that Transparent season 3 will return Friday, September 23 and I’m looking forward to seeing this family again.

 

From one stylish TV family to an even more stylish TV family and the cast of Black-ish at TCA.

Another installment of my series: "Watching 'Sex and the City' at 2 In The Morning." In short, Charlotte is ig about not giving head. Like you don't have to treat dining on the sauseege like it's your fav flav of Ben & Jerry's. Like nothing compares to Ben & Jer – a'doy – but to say I'M NEVER GIVING BLOWJOBS and expect a guy to view the rest of his life sans beejs as anything but the series of unfortunate events that Lemony Snicket lived thru is dumb. If you want a guy to eat your Morimorto- prepared soosh (sushi) aka vajeen, then your mouth needs to roam his dome the way that Julie Andrews roamed and rolled up on them in hills in "The Sound Of Music." #SexAndTheCity #SATC #OralSexIsForEverybody #BeAGoodCitizenOfThisPlanetAndGobbleOnSomeEggplant

I would like to watch SATC with Phoebe Robinson. All of these points are very valid.

Pretty swaggy day! Ok last #bts snapped from my phone by @makeupbymichael

Danielle Brooks posts some of my favorite style shots. This is another one.

 

I stopped watching The Mindy Project last season (the Danny stuff just got too urgh), but I am glad I get to enjoy the incredible costuming via Mindy’s Insta.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

3 Aug

Shows back from summer hiatus while others come closer to their end. Plus cast reunions, dancing, fancy dinners at the White House and more from this week’s TV Instagram highlights.

I love these babies! #youretheworst

A post shared by Kether Donohue (@ketherdonohue) on

 

You’re the Worst returns this month – August 31 – and I cannot wait; just look at these faces. All the heart emojis. Catch up on Hulu now and in the meantime I will be listening to this season 2 credits music playlist to get in the mood.

Taking a break on the set of season three. #youretheworst

But wait! There is more You’re the Worst cast antics on Instagram and I spy sunglasses to covet on Aya Cash’s head.

Kicking off Season 5 with my mini @elementaryofficial @kickeepants

A post shared by Lucy Liu (@lucyliu) on

 

Keeping with the sunglasses trend and adding a big dose of “holy crap this is adorable” from Lucy Liu with her son Rockwell on the set of Elementary.

 

Fun getting ready pictures of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’ trip to the White House last night from hair stylist Brian Magallones. Cue every Russian spy joke ever and it would appear that the Obamas are fans of The Americans as they scored a prime spot at the state dinner table. Excellent dress choice by Keri Russell and a nice prelude to the Emmys next month.

I did a thing….. 💆🏼

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

 

Sometimes a hiatus beard happens (see Matthew Rhys) and other times in between seasons a different dye job is the thing (or this could be work related). Regardless, from this obscured shot the blonde looks great on Sophie Turner.

While we’re on the subject of Game of Thrones here is a fun reunion.

 

This is actually from the Fast and Furious set, but Tormund would look great with a wolfie of his own as this photo shows.

 

It can be dangerous as well as super stylish on the set of BrainDead.

 

OITNB cast closeness continues even when one of them is away.

I am so glad I am all caught up on iZombie for a number of reasons. One is that I get to enjoy these delightful “behind the brains” shenanigans.

Oh there’s more dancing.

And sneaky eating. Craft service would easily be my downfall. Just look at all those pastries.

Happiness with @shiriappleby 📷:@russlamoureux

A post shared by Constance Zimmer (@constancezimmer) on

 

There have been a lot of missteps on UnREAL this season including keeping Rachel and Quinn apart and at loggerheads. The end of this week’s episode included a really satisfying moment that doesn’t erase everything that has come before it, but it felt good to see them together again. Also this is a really nice photo of Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby.

 

Joining the shows that are no longer on summer break; New Girl.

Back at work and it feels so good slash productive. #superflexible #bevhills90210 #aahndrea @lastmanfox season 3

Last Man on Earth is also back from hiatus and January Jones continues her reign as Insta Queen.

And in shows/onscreen pairings that I miss we have Diane Kruger and Demián Bichir back on The Bridge.

 

For a closer look at some of the Emmy nominated costumes including this personal fave head to the Costume Designers Guild Awards page for a lot more treats.

Looking forward to talk about motorcycles and stuff on @thetalkcbs today! #harleyandthedavidsons

This photo of Michiel Huisman led to a very fun conversation about dudes in sweaters on Twitter last week and I thank him for that much needed break from work.
