Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

8 Jun

Co-stars supporting co-stars, returning summer shows, crushes are all included in this week’s “Behind the Insta-Scenes.” Plus plenty of stylish moments, a very cute TBT and more from the CFDA Awards.

 

The Mr Robot season 2 promo train is gearing up with a dash of Emmy FYC and here is an adorably stylish photo of the cast being adorable.

 

OITNB returns in just over a week (!) and some of the cast were in Berlin giving off serious glam vibes.

Doogie and me #TBT

UnREAL returned this week with a strong and biting premiere; here is Shiri Appleby gifting us with a Doogie Howser flashback.

 

Back to the present and this pairing makes me so happy; great wcw choice.

 

Tonight is The Americans S4 finale and Holly Taylor not only plays one of the best teens on TV, but her notebook prop from the show is so spot on with detail even if we barely get to see this stuff on screen.

 

Lupita Nyong’o continues to get excellent backstage visitors and this week 12 Years a Slave co-star Sarah Paulson dropped by.

 

Keeping on this track; the Jane the Virgin cast are coming out to support Jamie Camil’s summer turn on Broadway in Chicago. 

 

More Jane the Virgin co-stars supporting co-stars delights.

 

This week I found out that Kristofer Hivju is on Instagram and my Tormund crush continues to grow.

 

While I’m on the subject of crushes. Oh, hello. So excited to have Scott Speedman back on TV.

Amy Poehler’s New Book Cover and Synopsis

28 May

October is a busy month for celebrity memoirs (this tends to happen in the lead up to the holidays) with Neil Patrick Harris, Alan Cumming and Lena Dunham all bringing out books. The one book I will be buying/pre-ordering/wishing it was out already is Yes Please by Amy Poehler. On the Barnes & Nobel site you can pre-order it now and get a glimpse of the cover (which you can see below), plus an official description:

“In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book is full of words to live by.”

yespleaseIt’s a simple and yet effective cover; the neon sign title stands out and I love the white vest, black pants and flats styling.

Today is the start of a BookExpo America and the four-day event will include Poehler, Dunham, Harris and Cumming as they promote their forthcoming memoirs. The expo attracts 20,000 people from the world of publishing with authors like John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) and Jonathan Tropper (This is Where I Leave You) discussing the forthcoming movie adaptations of their novels, as well as many authors promoting their new material.

Now I need to make sure I get through my always growing “To Read” pile before October (this photo is from 8 months ago and I’ve only added to it).

Yes Please will hit stores October 28.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

19 Jul

It’s been a busy week with Emmy nominations, Comic-Con and magazine covers and this edition of “Out of the Box” covers all three. While it’s still very much the summer and my Scandal catch up is underway, it’s also time to look to returning shows like Breaking Bad  and from the activity on my Twitter feed most casts are returning to their shows for the fall season. As always this is a snapshot of what I have been watching and what news/photo shoots have caught my eye online and in print. 

Winner: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny at The X-Files Reunion Panel, Comic-Con

X Files Reunion

The X-Files holds a very special place in my TV watching history and the relationship between Mulder and Scully is a very big part of this. I have never been to Comic-Con but I know that if I was attending this year then this X-Files reunion panel would be number one on my list and from this ScreenFad live blog it sounds like it was a relaxed and fun affair. Both Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny look content and happy to be reunited in front of a large audience of fans and thrilled shippers all around the world when Anderson suggested that Mulder and Scully would “Have sex” on a date. Duchovny followed this up with “Then maybe dinner?”

Runner Up: Bryan Cranston for GQ 

bryan-cranston-gq-magazine-august-2013-04

It’s been a good week for Bryan Cranston as he received an Emmy nomination and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; he’s also on the cover of the August issue of GQ. The photo shoot has Cranston ditching the Heisenberg/Walter White threads (this is a far cry from standing in the desert in his underwear) and going for a tailored look. It’s a good choice and I don’t think we’ve ever seen him look this dreamy.

Runner Up: Aubrey Plaza for The New York Times

Aubrey Plaza NY Times

Aubrey Plaza is currently on the promotional trail for The To Do List and this includes a profile in The New York Times. Opting for a photo that wouldn’t look out of place on Instagram (because that is a thing we do now) the styling leans much older than the skort wearing teen that Plaza plays in The To Do List and is more polished than Plaza’s Parks and Recreation character April.

Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris Announcing the 2013 Emmy Nominations 

65th Primetime Emmy Nominations Announcement

I’m pretty sure there is nothing more adorable than Aaron Paul in polka dot bow tie (ok maybe his Price is Right appearance) and I’m sure he will offer something just as delightful at the Emmy awards come September. Here Paul is announcing the nominees for the 2013 Emmys and while I’m still simmering from some of the missing names/shows (like Hannibal, Jake Johnson and The Americans), Aaron Paul deservedly got another nomination for his role of Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad. Neil Patrick Harris looks just as dapper as always and was a late minute replacement for Kate Mara (she had travel issues) showing that even with short notice and at 5.30 am he’s always on it when it comes to hosting.
