I’m pretty positive I was having a baby, my first child.” CMM and his wife, actress Sarah Roemer, announced the birth of their first child, a son, in 2015. At the time, TVLine simply reported that Chad Michael Murray “declined an invitation to appear,” leading to a recast with “Days of Our Lives” star Anton Narinskiy in the role. You know, Tristan’s secret was be that guy that every girl wants to be next to, but just isn’t sure they should be, and I heard he did it well.”When Murray was asked if he’d heard about the (in)famous final four words, he basically guessed them, and he seems to hope “Gilmore Girls” uses them as a launchpad to continue.Watch part of his interview:Want more stuff like this? Put that way, it sounded like CMM thought he was too fancy for “Gilmore Girls.” But the reason he shared was a lot more awwww-worthy.Murray just talked to Entertainment Tonight to promote his new CMT show “Sun Records,” and he was asked about “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” What happened there? But I hear [he gives a round of applause] strong work, good job, man! Posted February 24, 2017 by Gina CarboneChad Michael Murray’s “Gilmore Girls” character, Tristan Dugray, returned for the Netflix revival “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” but the actor himself did not. Roemer is currently pregnant with their second child, a girl.Murray continued to ET:”It just did not work into what we were doing at that moment, so I know that somebody went out and was Tristan, but it wasn’t me.

(Fallon was way impressed by that.) Elijah had never watched “The Bachelor” before, but now he watches every Monday night.In the 10 minute conversation, Elijah and Jimmy even re-enacted “Bachelor” dates. They can’t even with Corinne, and have no idea who Bachelor Nick Viall should pick now that Rachel Lindsay is out of the running. Elijah didn’t know Nick from “The Bachelorette” but he heard about those experiences and found them “fascinating.” Then Nick became “The Bachelor,” and Elijah told Jimmy that he learned that Nick was going to be the rose-giver even before it was announced. On “The Tonight Show,” official Bachelor Nation residents Elijah Wood, 36, and Jimmy Fallon, 42, interrupted each other repeatedly in their desire to get their points across. (They were not happy with that spoiler.)Turns out, Elijah is friends with Nick, and they even went to a screening of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” together. Watch and love, Bachelor Nation:For the record, Elijah insists that Nick is a genuine guy, and what you see is what you get.Elijah was on the show to promote his new Netflix movie “I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore,” but they don’t talk much about that.

I think there’s amazing comedy happening. Do you have a sense in your own work about how that might play out?Oh sure. I think it’s very helpful for someone to organize some of this information. I’m really not sure what role it will play in a pretty scary, chaotic moment.Do you think comedians as a whole will tread lighter? I don’t think it’s really any different. The truth is that there’s almost no one you would mention that I wouldn’t dream of working with. We worked on it for five years. Some people go to other heights. Some people may also want to do that to people with Pete’s background, who build a great deal of their lives around their faith. I think the mood of the country affects how people experience art and culture. That’s the thing about comedy is you’re trying to get work and get people to pay you before you’ve learned how to do it well. Posted February 24, 2017 by Scott HuverOn the scripted page, behind the camera, and as the chief decision maker at his own production company, Judd Apatow has undoubtedly shaped the comedic sensibility of a generation — but there was a time when he did it from the microphone of a stage in a standup club.That’s clearly part of the reason what Apatow has such a sharp eye for comedy talent: not only has he helped elevate writer/performers like Seth Rogen, Lena Dunham, Jason Segel, Amy Schumer, and Paul Rust, helping them translate the best, funniest, and most emotionally effective aspects of their comedy personas into big-screen and small-screen successes.Now, he’s turning to a world he knows well, having long ago done his tour of duty in the standup comedy scene and mentored by standup legend Garry Shandling, to explore that early period in a comic’s career where they’re all raw talent and ambition before honing and shaping their specific sensibility.For HBO’s “Crashing,” Apatow teamed with real-life standup Pete Holmes to build a sitcom inspired by Holmes’s own unique backstory: a decent, rule-following evangelical Christian making his first foray into the chaotic, cutthroat world of the New York comedy club scene just as his probably-wedded-too-young marriage is collapsing.Apatow joined a small group or reporters to sound off on “Crashing” as well as a myriad of subjects including his own early standup memories, how the current political climate will affect comedy and saying goodbye to “Girls.”That particular ground in standup comedy — being good but not yet great — must’ve felt like very fertile ground to explore.Judd Apatow: I think we all have gone through that period where we’re not good yet. Or buy my book, which is still on sale — for charity! I don’t think that the networks, for all sorts of reasons, couldn’t do it in the way that some of the other networks and streaming services can do.There’s limitations on content, and I hated the idea that they’re waiting to get the ratings the next day, and if they’re bad, they might pull the plug. If somebody said, “I want to go on a talk show and do a very, very political routine,” I’m sure there are limitations on where they could do that and who would be comfortable with what they were saying, and how they would vet it.But we don’t know. He said he hadn’t acted in 14 years. I just couldn’t believe it. I want to bring them to a bigger audience?”There’s nothing common about it. I think they’re all working very hard to be accurate, a lot of these talk show hosts — people like Samantha Bee and John Oliver.You mentioned that dehumanization quality that’s happening in stereotyping different groups. What’s your sense?Comedians will say whatever they want to say. It’s just that simple.I think you can learn more about how to be a comedian now, because when I was a kid, I had to go find comedians and interview them to ask them how to do it. And any time you’re showing a community and try to be thoughtful about it, I think it’s a really positive thing.So that’s one of the main things I love about this show, is that we get to talk about religion from a lot of different perspectives, from very religious people to hardcore atheist comedians, and we’re going to continue to see what we can talk about there.Do you need the creative freedoms that Netflix or HBO affords you to do your best work? It’s a world that isn’t examined in comedy very often, so it really does feel fresh. When I was writing “This Is 40,” I thought, “If I could get Albert Brooks to do this, it would be perfect.” So that worked out, but it has to follow the idea.Have you gotten an early look at Showtime’s “I’m Dying Up Here,” which is a fictionalized take on the first big standup comedy explosion in the ’70s and ’80s in Los Angeles?I haven’t. I was just watching Seth Meyers talk about a lot of these issues. We don’t know how the government’s going to be run. Which I think we’re all adjusting to the fact that it’s ending. The idea has to create the situation. Would you like to revisit those characters at some further point in their lives?I don’t know. I don’t like the waiting on ratings to determine if you’re going to survive. I don’t like the commercial interruptions. I think the show also is showing the humanity of religious people. They’ve got great comedy material, but the stuff you’ve worked on tends to be really honest and a little bit autobiographical.Most comedians are pretty honest and want to open up. So if by the end of the night if you could sit at Budd Friedman’s table with Jerry Seinfeld and George Wallace, it was heaven.If you look at a 20-something-year-old now entering, what’s the biggest challenge for them?To be a comedian? So you’re diluted. He would do these mythic, brilliant improvisational sets, so it’s really exciting that he’s doing that.Do you have a longing for that historical moment in comedy?Oh, sure! But I wouldn’t want to do it unless I had a great piece of material and I thought I could do something that I was proud of with that. So much of it came from Artie. So I think people have a little bit of a head start.You’ve worked with so many young great comics. They come from very different comedy places.I guess so. I think those types of things happen naturally, where Pete is like this guy who’s trying to hold on to his soul, and in a way, Artie is too. He’s a sweetheart of a guy who has his own specific sets of personal obstacles, who’s trying to keep it together and thrive.They’re funny together because Pete’s been through so little, and Artie has been through so much. That’s the weird part about it. We made a movie called “The Big Sick” with Kumail Nanjiani that premiered at Sundance on Inauguration Day. So I do think it changes how you watch.In terms of that film, I think it reminds you that it’s very easy to dehumanize people. Basically you were trying to kill the day because you had nothing to do.Then at night, we would all go to the improv and do sets, and then hope the veteran comedians will talk to us. It was very brave, and really, really creative and funny.What did you love about those early standup years?I love that we were all young and had no doubt that we would make it somehow. You can’t have a comedy with this great sex scene where it all goes well. So you’re rooting for both of them, and you do want some of what Pete’s talking about to rub off on Artie.But Artie was so funny, and really is great as anyone I ever worked with. It depends on who’s going to broadcast what they want to say. Larger concerns and investigations … Kumail is from Pakistan acclimating to being in America and falling in love in America.There’s a lot of issues about immigrants in it. I always want to think comedy’s important because it lets us all blow off steam, and depressurize, and laugh, and it just makes us happy when we’re stressed about what’s happening in the world. I’m very interested in comedy, but I haven’t explored religion in my own work. The great ones are excited to go there. But if you’re really strong, you’re going to do well. So the fact that Pete has a unique point of view, and a unique story, is what attracts me to it.I like that there’s an undercurrent of the discussion of religion in the show. What might Marnie do in this situation?” So it’s really weird for us that that conversation has ended. I’ve never talked to Lena about her thoughts about things like that. That was fun. So it’s fun for me to talk about all those issues with him.Is it easy to get the comedians you work with to get to those emotional truths? I feel like the streaming services have created a world where there’s a financial incentive to do amazing original work. He’s so brilliant and funny. I think that if you’re true to yourself, and you’re willing to work hard, and if you’re talented, people will like you. All of his scenes were workshopped with him and improvised. Yes, yes, Jim Carrey is the producer. Not everybody makes it, but in comedy, if you’re good, you will make it. Who are these people? So we’re all traumatized. It’s about … What about “Girls”? You’re crazy and young, and we would goof around all day long. We didn’t think it would come out in an environment where people were deciding these major issues with how we feel about immigration and having a president that has some new ideas about it. When we sat with Artie Lange and say, “Let’s do a discussion where you tell Pete how hard it is to be a comedian, and how difficult your life has been.” He sat for hours and improvised stories, and he held nothing back. I’m an uber-comedy nerd. Once they’re not awkward, we’re not even in comedy. So if someone’s doing a show about life and the Hollywood comedy scene in the ’70s, I’m the first person who will be addicted.The pairing of Pete and Artie Lange is really potent. “What might Hannah do in this this situation? Now you can just put on Pete’s podcast, or Marc Maron’s podcast, and everyone will just tell you exactly how they made it and what it took. I’ve been cancelled many times mid-season, three times. It’s so obvious if you’re great. I’ve had enough of it.You get asked about reviving various shows and characters you’ve worked on. For six years, we would talk all the time. I like that, at least at places like HBO, you get your season, and then at the end you might say, “Let’s do some more.” But you get your season. So that’s one of the funny things about it, because you have good nights and bad nights, and then slowly you have more and more good nights. I used to watch Jim Carrey at The Comedy Store in the late ’80s and early ’90s. How about some older ones that you have yet to work with and are still dying to get a shot?I always want to work with everybody. I like people who have an interesting point of view, and I like when they’re covering terrain which I feel hasn’t been done to death. What are we scared of?In what way do you think a Trump presidency changes comedy?It changes everything, because we don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re going to find out. I thought, “This is a real gem.” We’re so lucky to have the opportunity to showcase him and have him be a part of this.We’ve been talking to a lot of people here about how material that was written before the election might land differently with the audience after. Is that something you enjoy producing?I feel like all sex scenes need to be awkward, or they’re just pornographic. Heavier? But you’re getting paid to do something that you’re still weak at for a while.Did you experience having a relationship where your partner didn’t understand that it’s part of the process to not get paid, which Pete experiences on the show?When I did standup, from the time I was 17 to 24, I wasn’t really in that many relationships that lasted long enough for them to get irritated with me about me working.When you see a comedy talent like Pete or Amy Schumer or Lena Dunham, what resonates with you that makes you say, “I want to get in that business with them? It affected all of us.One thing “Crashing” has [in common] with “Girls” is the awkward sex scene. Would you want to do another broadcast network-type show?I’m not interested in the broadcast networks because I feel like the shows are too short. It’s very easy going, don’t let anybody in, without thinking, what does that mean? So when you see people in their lives, and they looking happy and are exactly the same as you, it’s an important statement.
Maybe you should get out a little more.’ Firstly, you love it. It’s only tits and dragons.”Setting aside the fact that “It’s only tits and dragons” is a pretty perfect tagline for “Thrones,” fans were pretty peeved about McShane’s slam. “You want to say, ‘Have you thought about your lifestyle? A character beloved by everybody returns. When fans read the spoiler, they were understandably a bit upset, but the actor doubled down on his laissez faire attitude about keeping “GOT” secrets, saying in another interview, “I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f—ing life. And the unapologetic actor is once again using his foul mouth to proclaim that he doesn’t really care whether or not his spoiler bothered loyal viewers.In a new interview with Empire (via Entertainment Weekly), McShane reflected on the kerfuffle he caused last year when he revealed that fan favorite character The Hound (Rory McCann) would be coming back in season six. Posted February 24, 2017 by Katie RobertsIan McShane is still #SorryNotSorry for bashing “Game of Thrones” fans who were upset that he spoiled the return of a presumed-dead character on the sixth season of the show. But the actor is once again proving he doesn’t really care, telling Empire that he finds the level of some viewers’ obsession to be a bit much.”The show is huge but some fans seem to identify with it [too closely],” McShane told the magazine. And what am I giving away? Secondly, you’ll have forgotten by the time it comes out. Give us a call sometime, Ian.[via: Empire via Entertainment Weekly] Get a f—ing life.”Based on his hilarious, DGAF interviews, we’d kind of love to get drinks with the actor (or maybe even watch an episode of “Thrones”) and just listen to him rant about whatever.
We thought and thought [about it] but it just seemed wrong. “It’s too soon. But it soon became clear that Emma Thompson would not be among them, and as the actress explains in a new interview, it’s because of another costar who can’t be there.While speaking with the Press Association (via The Guardian), Thompson confirmed that the reason why she wouldn’t be appearing in what’s being dubbed “Red Nose Day Actually” is due to the death of her friend and frequent costar, Alan Rickman. It’s absolutely right because it’s supposed to be for Comic Relief but there isn’t much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend, really, just over a year ago. It was absolutely the right decision.”It sounds like Curtis and Thompson made the right decision. Posted February 24, 2017 by Katie RobertsWhen news first broke that director Richard Curtis was working on a short sequel to “Love Actually” for the U.K.’s Red Nose Day event, fans were ecstatic to learn that the majority of the original cast was set to return. Rickman, who passed away last year at age 69, played Thompson’s unfaithful husband in “Love Actually,” and Curtis had already confirmed that there wouldn’t be a tribute to the late actor in the new segment.As the actress explained to the Press Association, she and Curtis both agreed that it wouldn’t make much sense to include her character in the reunion with Rickman’s glaring absence looming over the proceedings.”Richard wrote to me and said, ‘Darling, we can’t write anything for you because of Alan’, and I said, ‘No, of course, it would be sad, too sad,'” Thompson said. Now excuse us, we have something in our eyes…The “Love Actually” sequel will air during the U.K.’s Red Nose Day telecast on March 24.[via: Press Association via The Guardian]
