The big excitement factor of The Glee Project is watching Glee cast members, who we watch week by week deal with love triangles, unwanted pregnancies, disapproving family members and an inordinate amount of slushie facials, mentor aspiring performers in their climbs to fame. The first season of The Glee Project featured Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Harry Shum, Jr., (Mike Chang) and Darren Criss (Blaine) as guest mentors. This season will be bringing on a few more, the first of which isGlee's star player Lea Michele (Rachel Berry). The announcement about Michele's participation on The Glee Project was first made by Michele herself via Twitter, and confirmed by the Oxygen network. The Glee Project's second season, currently shooting in L.A., will air on Oxygen this coming summer. Glee airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. -TVLine
The last time we saw the Stults brothers on screen together, they were enforcing laws and fighting fire as the Kinkirks on 7th Heaven. Now, they will reteam once more...again, playing brothers. These guys must be really close. The Finder stars Geoff Stults as Walter Sherman, former military man-turned-detective. An upcoming episode will guest star George Stults as Walter's brother Langston, a musician who turns up to ask Walter to help him find their estranged mother so that their dying father can say goodbye to her one last time. The Finder airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. -TVLine
What do you get when you cross The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons? Naturally, the title of the new Starz series Da Vinci's Demons, and possibly an angry Dan Brown. In any event, the new series will actually focus around the artist and inventor himself, and his life during the Renaissance. British actor Tom Riley has been cast to play Da Vinci, who will be depicted as an intelligent, clever outcast of sorts. -Deadline
Well we knew this silver fox wouldn't last in the single world for very long, but it still sucks that just over a month following his split with Elisabetta Canalis, the glorified bachelor George Clooney is reportedly now on the rebound with actress Stacy Keibler. An insider close to Keibler dishes that "It's more than just a fling." Right, because that's just not Clooney's style. The former WWE wrestler/Dancing with the Stars competitor has supposedly known the hunky Oscar winner "four or five years," the insider adds, and recently "reached out to one another through a mutual friend." Looks like George is up for round 2 and ready to put Keibler through the Clooney ringer. Apparently the pair have been spending time together in London and at Clooney's house near Lake Como in Italy. The insider goes on to confess that "They're basically exclusive at this point...they like each other's sense of humor. Obviously they're both physically attracted to one another." Well obviously.
We'll see. Exclusivity has never been Clooney's strong point. Clooney and former girlfriend Canalis called it quits in late June, allegedly because she was anxious to marry and have a child, while he resented her attention-hogging habits. Keibler herself went through a break up last year after dating 7th Heaven actor Geoff Stults for five years. The insider warns us though to not expect to see the new couple hitting the red carpet together since they plan on keeping their romance completely private. Not sure how that's going to get accomplished with you divulging all these details, but good luck with that. In the meantime, let's place bets to see how long Clooney keeps this one around. Any takers?
Leggy Stacy Keibler recently jetted to the movie star's Italian retreat on the shores of Lake Como to spend some quality time with the eternal bachelor, according to Life & Style magazine.
The former WWE star even tweeted about relaxing at Clooney's villa, posting, "I'm in heaven."
A source tells the publication that Clooney and Keibler were set up by a mutual friend.
Keibler has been single since splitting from actor boyfriend Geoff Stults last year (10). Clooney broke-up with Canalis in June (11).
Teen idols including Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, Brittany Murphy, Ryan Seacrest, Colin Farrell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Hilary Duff and Tony Hawk were on hand for this year's Teen Choice Awards Saturday at the Universal Amphitheater in Universal City, Calif.
Making his first public appearance in two weeks was Los Angeles star Laker Kobe Bryant, who was not expected at the event after being formally charged with felony sexual assault against a 19-year-old woman who worked at an exclusive resort hotel in Eagle, Colo., on July 18.
Accompanied by his wife, Vanessa, Bryant flashed a thumbs-up and peace sign at fans but did not talk to reporters before going into the show, where he received best male athlete honors. This was Bryant's fourth win in five years. The Los Angeles Lakers are the only professional sports team to have members who have won this award, with Shaquille O'Neal taking the honor in 2001.
Other highlights of the night include Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Gellar, who won for best TV actress in a drama. This was her fourth win in five years in this category and ninth win overall--more than any other female.
Best hissy fit went Saturday Night Live alum Adam Sandler--his fifth award overall in five years--for his role in the big-screen comedy Anger Management.
In TV highlights, the WB drama 7th Heaven, which revolves around a Christian family and the issues they encounter, also received its third consecutive win as best TV drama. The series, now in its eighth season, stars Stephen Collins, Catherine Hicks, David Gallagher, Beverly Mitchell and Mackenzie Rosman.
Kutcher, however, was the night's big winner. He won best actor in a TV comedy for his role as Kelso in That '70s Show, best reality host for his MTV prankster series Punk'd and the coveted "male hottie" award.
The David Spade-hosted telecast will air Aug. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
