Marc Anthony Cast on TNT’s ‘HawthoRNe’

Marc AnthonyMaybe all this attention his wifey is getting from that judging gig on American Idol is making Marc Anthony a little jealous, because he just took a role alongside Jada Pinkett Smith on her TNT hour-long drama, HawthoRNe. He’s already showed up on two episodes last season and this new contract has him reprising that expanded role in season three. I don’t really understand why he’s been asked to come on board for Smith’s drama other than the fact that he hasn’t really had a hit since 1999’s “I Need to Know” and he’s probably getting pretty bored. Apparently, he’s acted before in a handful of projects including El Cantante, the film he made with Jennifer Lopez that was almost universally panned by critics, but I’m pretty sure most of us never noticed. Even so, maybe he’s got some hidden talent — especially since most of us haven’t seen two minutes of any acting that he’s actually done — and he’ll become what John Lithgow was to Dexter: a pretty awesome recurring character. Okay, he probably won’t be that awesome, but he’ll probably be just what we’d expect from a former mega famous singer-turned-pop-star’s-husband-turned-TNT-show-character.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
