‘Difficult People’ starring Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner cancelled by Hulu after three seasons

The hilariously acerbic Hulu comedy Difficult People has been cancelled after three seasons and 28 episodes. Billy Eichner, who stars in the show with Julie Klausner, wrote on Twitter tonight: ‘Yes it’s true. DIFFICULT PEOPLE has come to an end. Thanks to many people but above all my friend, @julieklausner. A singular comedic voice & the funniest person I know. I cannot WAIT to see what Julie creates next. Thanks to all of you Difficult People out there who watched.’

WATCH: When Harry met Cheyenne …

I’ll have what they’re having! Could there BE two dreamier men than Cheyenne Jackson and Harry Connick Jr.? Both so handsome and so talented and so charming. Cheyenne paid a visit to Connick Jr.’s daytime talk show this week. Below are some highlights.

Tuesday Morning Man: Chris Judd!

No, this is not the professional dancer Chris Judd who was once married to Jennifer Lopez.

Our Tuesday Morning Man is retired Australian rules football midfielder Chris Judd .

I found photos of 34-year-old Chris with a full head of hair and many with a shaved head.

With that face, he looks stunning either way. But which look do you readers prefer?

Anyway, Chris retired from the sport in 2015.

He was already winding down when he suffered an injury and decided to bring an end to his 279-game career.

Chris certainly played long enough to be widely regarded as one of the best footballers in the modern game.

He was captain of both the West Coast Eagles and Carlton Football Club in the Australian Football League.

Chris twice won the league’s highest individual honur, the Brownlow Medal, and is a two-time winner of the Leigh Matthews Trophy as the AFL Players Association most valuable player.

Morning Video: Elton John pays a visit to Stephen Colbert and talks about his classic 1970s albums

Elton John is commemorating the 50th anniversary of his successful songwriting partnership with Bernie Taupin with an ultimate greatest hits compilation entitled ‘Diamonds.’ Last night on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, he talked about his stupendous run of hits in the 1970s with such albums as Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Captain Fantastic, Rock of the Westies, Caribou, Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only the Piano Player and more. I have an older brother who had them all so these are part of the soundtrack of my life. Wonderful memories.

Days of Our Lives: Will Horton is reunited with husband Sonny and mom Sami! But, it’s complicated

At last. Sonny Kiriakis walks into a diner and there is Will Horton, the husband he thought was dead. Trouble is this: Will has no idea who Sonny is – even after Sonny kisses him. Then Will’s mom Sami rushes in. Doesn’t know her either. His memory has been wiped clean in true soap opera fashion. Gosh it is just so great to have Chandler Massey back!

Thanks to Andrew Rannells for posting this on his Instagram today. I had never seen this photo before of two of biggest stars in movie history who were both closeted gay men and very close friends of Elizabeth Taylor. They would have been such a striking couple!

Monday Morning Man: Kit Williamson!

Talented Kit Williamson turns 32 today and so it’s the perfect day to once again feature him as Morning Man.

He may be best known to most people as Ed Gifford on the series Mad Men but to me, he’s sexy Cal on the terrific web series EastSiders.

But Kit is so much more than Cal on the show which will soon premiere its third season. He also created the show and wrote and directed the episodes. And he put together a stellar cast that includes Van Hansis (As the World Turns), Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings), Matthew McKelligon and John Halbach who is Kit’s real-life partner and produces the series with him.

Kit began his career on Broadway, appearing in the Tony-nominated revival of Eric Bogosian’s Talk Radio while he was still an undergraduate acting student at Fordham University.

Kit has also had roles in the films Kiss Me, Kill Me and Retake.

I want to take this opportunity to give a shout out to the new website Kit and John launched earlier this month called Where Gentlemen Go, a gay travel and lifestyle blog for the modern gentleman. If I had not been in Las Vegas for my nephew’s wedding, I would have been at their launch party.

Kit writes on Facebook: “We’ve been planning this for months and are thrilled to finally share it with all of you! The website has three verticals: Go Out (Travel), Go Home (Lifestyle) and Go For It (Fitness) and we’ll be featuring daily interviews with gay men making an impact online. We also have some awesome weekly fixtures, including Play Gentle, a sex and relationship advice column with Aram Giragos, Getting Out There, a travel diary about overcoming anxiety with Glenn Garner and Getting Started, a fitness training program from Joseph Dean. Please check it out at”

Happy birthday to Kit!

Showtune Sunday: All About Rose Marie!

At 94, suddenly the great Rose Marie is all the rage again and I love it. The woman who literally has had the longest career in showbiz history was a major child star at 4 – major – and was billed then as Baby Rose Marie. She later played comedy writer Sally Rogers for five seasons on television classic The Dick Van Dyke Show and was a regular for 12 years on the original Hollywood Squares. She was the first major star to be known simply by her first names and is the subject of the new documentary film Wait for Your Laugh which features interviews from numerous co-stars, including Carl Reiner, Dick Van Dyke, Peter Marshall and Tim Conway. She could belt out one heckuva number as a kid and certainly as an adult. Here are a handul.

Morning Man Classic: Peter Brown!

Sadly, I was not familiar with Peter Brown until I read of the boyishly handsome actor’s death last year.

He starred as the eager young deputy Johnny McKay on the 1958-62 ABC series Lawman and played a Texas Ranger on NBC’s Laredo, another TV Western.

From 1972-79, He went on to play Dr. Greg Peters on NBC’s Days of Our Lives and later worked on other soap operas such as The Young and the Restless, Loving, One Life to Live and The Bold and the Beautiful.

His film roles include the 1964 sexploitation flick Kitten with a Whip, the 1964 surfing-buddy movie Ride the Wild Surf, and 1974′s Foxy Brown as a bad guy who is castrated by men hired by the revenge-seeking title character (Pam Grier).

His severed genitals were presented to his girlfriend (Kathryn Loder)!

One of his more recent films was 2001′s The Wedding Planner starring Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez.
