TV - Person of Interest

Agent Victoria Hand discusses new comedy series, her wife/family; is awesome



- (doesn't actually talk about S.H.I.E.L.D., sadly)
- is going to be in a new Amazon comedy series, "Mozart in the Jungle," with Malcolm McDowell and Gael Garcia Bernal
- got married last year to Ellen Show writer Alison Balian (and they have a bb)
- praises Ellen Page, Jodie Foster and Maria Bello for being open about their lives and discusses her own reasons for remaining largely private
- remains better than your other fluid-sexuality faves ♥ ("I really salute these young women who come out, but if I said I was gay that wouldn't be true. ... [W]hen I started to have relationships, I didn’t think about what I wasn't 'allowed' to feel, or who I wasn't allowed to love, and consequently I've loved some really incredible men and some really incredible women. There’s no coming out to do because I've always just followed my heart and I was lucky enough to have parents who didn't impose any bigotry on me. So to come out [as a lesbian] would actually be an untruth because the men I've loved were very vivid, real, loving relationships.")

full interview at the source
I assume most of the headlines will be like "LESBIAN ACTRESS COMES OUT AND IS IN LESBIAN MARRIAGE!!1", but I love her attitude and I'm hardcore in favor of more non-labeled/fluid visibility with celebs. It ain't all black-and-white, people.

Bill Cosby Steps Down From Temple University Trustee Board, Days After UMass Amherst Cuts Ties



Summary:

Bill has been on the board of trustees since 1982. He's one of the biggest donors, with a scholarship in his name.

After talking with the Chair of the board, Patrick O'Connor, reports say that Bill decided on his own that it was best for him to step down.

Coincidentally enough O'Connor was the one who represented Bill in 2005 when a Temple University employee filed civil charges against him - accusing him of drugging and assaulting her in his Philly home.

Source and Jill's Twitter with the posts 1 and 2

As a former Temple grad who was involved with the Board of Trustees, it mildly surprises me that they let up this easily, considering the money flow. I love my university but I don't doubt that they pressured him into cutting ties to avoid a Penn State level of PR disaster.  And so so disappointed that Jill would put a fucking TV character before the women stepping up against him.

B99's Stephanie Beatriz talks about latina representation on tv



She talks about how different she is from Rosa: "My favorite place in the world is Disney World if that tells you anything... There is a dark side to everyone, so I am sort of turning up the volume with Rosa (...)".

Also the article praises her deadpan delivery (we all do lbr), reminding us all of the classic moment when we discovered Rosa likes "Something's Gotta Give".

Regarding representation of latinos in television:
"For me, growing up there weren't a lot of Latinos who I could look at and identify with, but when I think about it, for example, my cousins and nieces now have that. My cousin dressed up as Rosa for Halloween. I couldn't do that when I was a kid, find someone on television who looked like me who I could emulate and be proud to look like. (...) It's just an incredible time on television. In my life, yes being Latina is important to who I am, but it's definitely not something I talk about everyday. I love that our show, just makes it normal (when referring to ethnicity and homosexuality, etc.)."

I could not find a gif of Rosa smashing the window away so this post will be brought to you by

Cuddly cuckold Ed Sheeran's "X" sells 1m in the UK



Ed Sheeran is "fuckin buzzin!" that his latest album "X" joins an elite group of British artists who achieved the sales landmark.

Data released by the Official Charts Company and music trade body BPI reveals that "X" has reached million-selling status and in doing so becomes the first artist the feat in calendar year since Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events in 2012.

"X" - which by the end of play on Saturday, November 29th had amassed sales of 1,005,002 - places Ed in an elite group of British artists who have achieved the landmark in the UK over the past few years, including Adele in 2011 (21 and 19), Take That in 2010 (Progress) and Susan Boyle in 2009 (I Dreamed a Dream).

With the peak Christmas trading period still to come, it is likely the album will be certified 4x Platinum (equivalent to 1.2m copies) by the BPI before the end of 2014.

Jem and the Holograms Comic Announced. OP Notes Best Hologram Missing, Remains Thrilled

 photo jem-holograms_zps6546b9d5.jpg

IDW Comics, a publisher that has a close relationship with Hasbro, has announced a Jem and the Holograms ongoing comic book series to begin in March of 2015! The series will be written by Kelly Thompson (writer of The Girl Who Would Be King) and illustrated by Ross Campbell (an artist who has done some work with TMNT). The covers will be done by Sara Richard (involved with MLP). No word on if the artwork above is a cover drawn by Richard or done by Campbell, but I'm hoping that's not the interior artist, because... that could be painful.

Rather than follow the classic storyline of Jerrica being in charge of Starlight Music, she is now a talented musician suffering from stage fright. Something left behind by her father will help her overcome her fear. One presumes it's Synergy, but who knows.

The initial issue will come with 5 different covers advertised as Rainbow Foil Covers, with one cover devoted to each member of the Holograms (minus Raya!!), and the 5th as a collective group shot. Issue #2 will follow the same general idea, this time with 4 covers, devoted to the Misfits (presumably minus Jetta).

SOURCE Relatively important information reworded by OP.

Y'all, I am here for this, even without Raya, even if IDW's Transformer comics aren't that good. Even if, to me, Kimber looks really, really bad... and that's just Kimber... don't care.

Trailer for the new ADELE EXARCHOPOULOS movie - Voyage Vers La Mère



Synopsis:

Maxim (Artem Alexeiev) is a young Muscovite who journeys from Russia to the south of France to visit his mother in her home amidst the lofty mountains of Montagne Sainte-Victoire.

In the throes of mourning, he reconnects with his French half-sister Marie Louise (Adele Exarchopoulos), whom he hardly saw.

Based on a novel by Nicolas Planchais, the film by Kosyrev-Nesterov features 2013 Palme d’Or winner Adèle Exarchopoulos, the young French actress whose memorable breakthrough role came in Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Color (2013).

Bill Cosby Told Jokes about Drugging Women in 1969



- Found on Bill Cosby's comedy album titled "It's True! It's True!"
- In a bit called "Spanish Fly" he jokes about being 13 and learning of a drug that can be slipped in women's drinks to make them even more tipsy.
- He also jokes about learning the series "I Spy" would be filming in Spain ("a dream come true") and asking a Spanish cab driver if he knew about the drug.
- Not in the bit, but Spanish fly is an actual aphrodisiac that can create a rush of blood to the sexual organs, but can be poisonous if used incorrectly.
- The joke has resurfaced in light of the allegations.

Amy Sedaris talks about The Heart She Holler, Strangers with Candy, and Colbert replacing Letterman





Source.

Bullet points:

  • There's going to be more romance on this season of Holler, especially with Hurshe and the Sherrif.

  • She enjoys working with Scott Adsit, who has taken over the role of Sherrif: "He has grounded my character a lot this season. Plus he's physically funny and he's funny in real life, and he's just a pleasure to be around and I just like the feelings that he brought to the sheriff character. I like the way Joe [Sikora] played the sheriff the first two seasons, but Scott is more about tender moments."

  • Doesn't think there's going to be any sequels or reboots for Strangers with Candy: "I think we've all kind of gone our own separate ways and we just couldn't do it without Paul and Stephen."

  • She's going to miss Letterman, and Colbert's character on the Colbert Report, but thinks Colbert will do a good job taking over the Late Show. "There's so much about Stephen that he hasn't even shown anybody yet."

In the video, you can watch as nostalgia visibly washes over them, and hear about how they felt when they found out the show was getting cancelled.

Fuck The #Management: Larry Stans Claim Louis' New Tattoo is All About Harry



The indefatigable Larry stans have arisen once again in defense of the truest love ever born between two white British guys that teenage girls fantasize about. Louis debuted a new dagger tattoo a while back on A Current Affair and while most people would just see a tattoo, Larry stans (who seem to adore and heavily rely on tattoo speak) claim that it's just another way that Louis is silently outing his relationship with Harry--who happens to have a rose tattoo in the same place.

According to Larry stans, "the dagger and rose is all kinds of symbolic for lovers. The dagger is one of the most threatening of weapons for the sole reason that, in order to use it effectively, the attacker must be fairly close to the victim--close physically but also close emotionally. The rose then is a virtual opposite to the dagger, representative of ideal beauty and also love."

Louis, who has been dating triplets Eleanor Calder for three years now, has yet to make a surely tasteful and controlled comment.

13-Year-Old Kim Kardashian Prayed For Her Breasts To Stop Growing

kim k

Kim Kardashian West is Elle UK's cover model for their January issue, which focuses on confidence. Kim, who appears on three covers (because confidence!) for the magazine, discusses how her late father Robert Kardashian helped her overcome her body image issues when she was a teenager.

"When I was 13 my father wrote me a letter," Kim tells the mag. "I was unhappy with my body – I developed really early. Every night I would sit in the bath and cry, I prayed my boobs would stop growing. He told me I had a body not many girls have, that later it would lead to attention from men, but that the most important thing was that I was a wonderful girl and I had to understand my self worth."

Kim also talked to Elle UK about her nude photos being hacked and how she believes Kendall Jenner will go on to be a bigger star than she is.
