Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

10 Aug

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.

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.

 

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.”

You'll never believe who I ran into today…

The DC TV universe keeps on getting bigger.

 

The big Brooklyn Nine-Nine news is they’re doing a crossover with New Girl (and I’m very into this idea). It is nice to see these smiling faces again.

 

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

 

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.

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.

 

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.

 

Carly Chaikin showing why Darlene was meant to be with my fave heart-shaped specs.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

21 Jul

Some Emmy nomination related posts, Instagram style highs and casts returning to set are all on the agenda this week.

 

The Wine Show is coming to Hulu August 13 and get ready for the Matthews in full cheeky scamp mode with a big dose of dad jokes and puns. It is wonderful.

 

The Looking movie airs this Sunday and while I am so not ready to be over (a thing I keep repeating in relation to this project) I am excited to feel all the feelings. Frankie J. Alvarez is doing a very good job in preparing me.

 

Chris Geere looks back to season 1 premiere of You’re the Worst and it isn’t too long until Gretchen and Jimmy will be back on our screens. *insert prayer hands emoji here*

 

Now to the present with Aya Cash eating and reading (great book choice).

 

Lots of fall show casts are back on set and Vincent Rodriguez III from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gives good hot weather hydration reminders (my apartment is a sweatbox so I definitely need to do this).

Yay! "Settle for Me" is nominated for Emmy!

A post shared by Rachel Bloom (@racheldoesstuff) on

 

So Rachel Bloom didn’t get the acting nomination I was hoping for and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend missed out on Best Comedy, but they did score song and choreography nods for “Settle for Me” (and two other dance numbers).

 

While we’re on the subject of Emmys; I was very excited for this and while I wasn’t in a Panera, I maybe did let out a bit (okay a lot) of a scream.

 

Emilia Clarke celebrates the Game of Thrones supporting actress category domination – sad to see no Sophie Turner – with a look at the not so glamorous nature of set life.

 

And Maisie Williams does so with this cute and terrifying video.

 

Also in the supporting category is Constance Zimmer (if only Shiri Appleby could have been nominated in the lead category too) wearing this fabulous dress from the UnREAL season 2 episode “Infiltration.”

 

 

Another returning to set photo and it is good to see Jonny Lee Miller back all buttoned up with Lucy Liu looking as flawless as ever on Elementary.

 

Any hot sauce for the iZombie cast?

Gina Rodriguez continues her summer of excellent hair changes while on hiatus going blonde and crushing it with those funky sunglasses.

I know this barefoot walk so well. An unsurprisingly very fabulous outfit from Mindy Kaling.

Ending things this week with a fun one from Chelsea Peretti and Andre Braugher gives great flat cap.

We’ve got New Year’s celebrations covered, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunions galore, costume sneak peeks and a snowy day at work as the weather finally turns cold in this week’s collection from Instagram.

#tbt to right now. Love you sister. Happy new year.

A post shared by Amber Tamblyn (@amberrosetamblyn) on

 

You might already know my feelings about IRL friendships which have developed from pretend ones on screen, but if you don’t then just know that I am so here for all of this. The cast of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are still super tight including New Year’s Eve hangout tight.

 

Blake Lively is also getting in on the Amber Tamblyn action and this implies that maybe there’s some husband sharing occurring somewhere. Maybe this is a sequel in the works. Lively also gave a shout out to America Ferrera’s new show Superstore and there’s more between these ladies than just the perfect jeans.

The quality of this shot isn’t great, but I didn’t want to leave Alexis Bledel out of the mix, especially as I just jumped (albeit very late) on board the Gilmore Girls train. Plus I think I might need to give Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants a rewatch.

🎉 Hey, 2016, you have nice eyes.

A post shared by Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) on

 

More IRL friendships and New Year’s party shenanigans featuring a good level of outfit sparkles, but in this case the real life relationship came before the fictional one (and looks a whole lot happier than the one we see on our screens). Lena Dunham just announced that Girls will end in 2017 after season 6 and I agree that by then it will be time to call it quits. Season 5 returns next month.

 

This lovely rendition from Charlie Day and Mark Duplass just made me realize that we didn’t even try and attempt to sing Auld Lang Syne this year with the obligatory only knowing a tiny portion of the lyrics and mumble singing the rest.

Looking ahead. Hope 2016 treats you well!

Happy New Year indeed! This kind of denim jacket is my favorite kind (and not just because I have one).

 

#RelationshipGoals ❤

 

This was a fun end of year Instagram thing where you can find out your nine most liked photos from 2015 and post them to your feed. Raul Castillo noticed a repeating theme in his selection (my theme was selfies, food and puppies).

 

For Krysten Ritter there is a whole lot of Jessica Jones, David Tenant and her dog Mikey.

 

An outtake from The Leftovers season 2 promo shoot and one which looks far more serene than Kevin’s desperate drowning reach toward Nora.

 

Curlers and snow for the Legends of Tomorrow cast with it looking full on brr cold.

 

I do love a floor plan.

 

Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo took over the Costume Designers Guild Instagram yesterday showing off all kinds of behind the scenes stuff including plenty of Prada bags, THE white hat and this selection of Olivia Pope pumps.

 

Keeping on theme and a very different array of footwear over at The Mindy Project. 

 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was back last night much to our delight. Good spy like photo taking skills from Stephanie Beatriz with an unsuspecting Andre Braugher in the background.

 

Expect to see way more Brie Larson (and Jacob Tremblay because this kid can rock a tux) around these parts as award season kicks into full gear. Here are Larson and Tremblay with their NBR awards and I am very much looking forward to sobbing through at least half of Room.

A bumper “Behind the Insta-Scenes” this week including Halloween both on and off set, cast hangouts, reminiscing and dancing. There is always time for dancing.

 

Everything about this photo brings me so much joy. I miss Parks and Rec.

 

More Parks behind the scenes delights from Retta and a good reminder that Aziz’s new show Master of None lands on Netflix in two days!

 

Continuing the Parks and Rec theme and combining it with the musical that like many people I can’t stop listening to at the moment. The fact that Ben Schwartz has Jean Ralphio’s faked death headstone is also aces.

There’s a whole lot of late shoot not so happy face from the B99 team.

 

And then these face parts expressions.

 

Entering the Halloween portion and You’re the Worst doubled down on Sunday Funday this season with a fantastic tapestry of scares, amazing costumes, hilarity and relationship drama.

 

Which Aya Cash then used as an IRL dress-up solution because why not? These wings give me so many teen flashbacks and I still have a pair stuffed in the back of my wardrobe.

 

Bowling shoes plus Halloween equals this fun set-up on Sleepy Hollow. Abbie’s Beyonce is one of the best costumes I have seen on TV.

 

January Jones continues her excellent Insta hashtag game and a spot on look for Halloween.

Throwing a Stark brother into the blurry mix – will they ever be reunited on Game of Thrones?

 

Look who came back to The Mindy Project! Although I still want a talk show with Adam Pally and Ben Schwartz to be more than a onetime thing.

 

The Flash set looks like a lot of fun…

 

Even with the slightly questionable snack preferences.

 

Frankie J. Alvarez shows off some sweet moves in his super tight jeans in this throwback to season 2 of Looking.

 

Woah! Scream Queen spoilers alert! Not really, but now I really want Gwyneth Paltrow to be the killer.

 

I haven’t watched this week’s Scream Queens yet and while I keep fluctuating between enjoyment and eye roll toward this show (standard reaction to a Ryan Murphy project) this pairing does raise my interest levels. Now to make the Gwyneth thing actually happen.

 

Speaking of horror show and Maya Kazan’s got the most terrifying addition to her look on The Knick.

A post shared by Kelly Rutherford (@kellyrutherford) on

 

Rumor has it that Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle have done what Rufus and Lily could not; I am a sucker for cast members being romantically entwined or besties after a show is dunzo. Here they are joined Caroline Lagerfelt who played Rutherford’s on screen mother and CeCe was not one of Rufus’ biggest fans. It looks a lot cozier IRL.

 

After appearing at the Night of Too Many Stars live telethon Abbi and Ilana are hanging out with Jon Stewart again – this time at The Daily Show.

 

Jane the Virgin returned this week with yet another fabulous fantasy infused setup.

 

The final season of Kroll Show continues to draw all the names in comedy and some super slicked back hair from Aziz.

 

Adam Pally is a very good gift giver. Their coat and scarf game is also v. strong.

Spring is upon us but not before the snow has one last final hurrah. Here is the very pretty and albeit very cold looking trailer area on Elementary.

 

DVD sets that don’t come with any episode commentaries don’t quite fulfill their boxset potential; this is not the case with Looking as Frankie J. Alvarez captures one session in action.

 

And here is Daniel Franzese post recording session and a very busy day. Franzese is killing it as Eddie on Looking this season and here is the excellent Buzzfeed article he mentions in the caption.

 

Taking the crown for guest star related joy from The Mindy Project is The Good Wife with Lawrence Gilliard Jr. and Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin).

 

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

27 Sep

It’s been a big red carpet week thanks to the Emmys (for all our coverage head here) and so Out of the Box is going to return its focus to the costuming that has caught our eye on TV this week. Featuring characters that are Out of the Box regulars and some new faces this is a snapshot of the week on TV and costuming that has caught our attention.

Breaking Bad hat and parka

The penultimate episode of Breaking Bad saw Walter White isolated and broken as he started a new life in a cabin somewhere in New Hampshire. It’s not much of a life as he has to spend $10,000 for an hour of company and two copies of Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is all he has to watch. His first attempt to leave the cabin begins with him putting on the Heisenberg hat; a symbol of the empire he had created and the elusive figure that was feared. Combined with the parka coat and the surroundings this takes any of the menace out of it and the trip is futile, with Walt returning to his cabin of solitude. The next time we see him venture outside he has ditched the Heisenberg hat and opted for a more sensible beanie and it appears as if Heisenberg has gone for good. That is until he sees the Charlie Rose interview with his former partners and for one last episode Heisenberg is set to return.

Sleepy-Hollow-102

Oh Sleepy Hollow you are the most nonsensical fun that is on TV at the moment and the first two episodes have certainly squeezed a lot of mythology into them. The one thing that is grounding the show is the central relationship between Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane and Nicole Beharie’s Lt. Abbie Mills. The crazy story part isn’t necessarily what hooks people into a show; it’s the chemistry between the characters that increases the satisfaction of a journey like this and it makes the ridiculous moments easier to swallow. Ichabod is still dressed in the clothes he arrived in and it’s unclear whether he will get a wardrobe update. This helps with the notion that he isn’t from this time and I can’t quite picture him in jeans and a t-shirt, though I also really want to see the inevitable makeover episode when they don’t have witches and headless horseman to deal with.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is another new show that benefits from a strong central pairing with Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher playing two very different cops. Braugher is the new Captain at the precinct Andy Samberg’s Detective Jake Peralta works at and the second episode reinforced the conflict between Jake’s easy going style and Captain Holt’s by the book attitude. Uniform has been a point of contention in both the pilot and with their undercover surveillance this week; Jake is seeing how far he can push his new captain. Jake’s minivan disguise is Harvey Norgenbloom and Harvey wears sandals, not the best footwear choice for chasing after bad guys. This push and pull works because Samberg is so good at doing the goofy manchild role and Braugher has the perfect level of deadpan. I’ve been impressed with both of these episodes and how quickly these characters have been established.

NG_ep302-sc20_1080Jess got wasted on New Girl this week after Nick’s solid advice that drinking makes you cooler and her hangover outfit is wonderful; the plaid shirt she slept in – it looks like it could be one of Nick’s but it’s actually a woman’s shirt that you can buy here – the key is that it is baggy as you don’t want anything too tight after a night of heavy drinking and toilet bowl dancing. The sunglasses are an important addition as is the coffee cup that Jess is clutching (a can of Diet Coke is my preferred solution).

Parks and Recreation - Season 6It’s April’s yellow mustard hoodie that is top of my clothing wish list and you’d be surprised how hard it is to find something this simple. Parks and Recreation returned for season 6 yesterday with a double bill episode and a trip to London (and Scotland). April’s dress at the awards ceremony is the same Alice + Olivia dress that Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford was seen wearing at New York Fashion Week. Along with this mustard hoodie there are other repeated outfits featured in this premiere of Parks and Rec that are on my most wanted list including Leslie’s mixed polka dot blouse and it makes sense to reuse costumes with these types of characters.

Jean Ralphio and Mona Lisa

Special mention has to go to the wardrobe of Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa; this more than double denim explosion is as amazing as Jean-Ralphio’s hair is huge.
