It has been an exciting week for Gleeks the world over. Not only was Glee’s Amber Riley crowned winner of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, beating tough competition from Corbin Bleu and Jack Osbourne, but now FOX are calling on fans to pick which songs will be performed in the upcoming 100th episode, set to air in March next year. ‘Gleeks Choice’ allows people to vote for their favourite 10 songs from an extensive list including fan favourites Defying Gravity, Don’t Stop Believing, Loser Like Me and Valerie. Personally I’m inclined to go for some of the less popular ones such as Landslide and Sweet Caroline but we’ll just have to wait and see which songs make the final track-list. If you’d like to have your say vote here.
In one of the most surprising TV moments the year, Family Guy’s Brian Griffin was killed off, prompting many hearts to break. Yes the talking white dog died in the latest episode leaving fans gobsmacked by such a cruel turn of events. Brian was one of the best loved characters in Family Guy and the decision to end his life has enraged fans of the show. So much so that a petition has been created on Change.org with almost a hundred thousand digital signitures. Will this prompt creator Seth MacFarlane to bring the character back from the dead? I doubt it seeing as his death brings about the arrival of a new dog in the series called Vinny, who willl be voiced by Sopranos actor Tony Sirico.
The O.C.s loveable nerd Adam Brody has been cast in an upcoming episode of New Girl season three. Guest-starring as Berkeley, Jess’ ex-boyfriend, the character will be looking to reconnect with Jess and stir things up with Nick. Brody’s set to appear in episode 14 of season 3, with filming due to take place in December. This is perfect casting in my eyes!
The most hated face on HBO’s Game of Thrones might be disappearing from our screens for good when the series ends. Jack Gleeson who plays the detestable Joffrey has told The Saturday Night Show that he might quit acting after GOT to focus on a more academic career. We’ve heard this line before with other actors and it almost never transpires, I guess they miss the money or something equally as cynical, but Gleeson will find it hard to shake Joffrey when the time comes so maybe his leaving acting isn’t such a bad thing.
