Out actor Jake Borelli has been upgraded to series regular on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy”

I don’t watch full episodes of Grey’s Anatomy much anymore but I certainly watch scenes that involve the adorable Jake Borelli.

Borelli have been recurring on the show for the past two seasons as intern Levi “Glasses“ Schmitt, who is part of a major LGBTQ storyline on Grey’s with the introduction of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital’s first openly gay male character, Dr. Nico Kim (Alex Landi).

Borelli’s character became part of the series’ first same-sex relationship involving two male doctors when Levi and Nico shared a kiss in an elevator. Moments after the episode aired in November, Borelli publicly came out as a gay man on Instagram.

See the first trailer for the upcoming Judy Garland biopic “Judy” starring Renee Zellweger

The film Judy focuses on Judy Garland during the last months of her life as she prepares for a sold-out run in London.

Judy is played by Oscar winner Renee Zellweger.

The film is based on Peter Quilter’s play End of the Rainbow which I saw at the Ahmanson four years ago. It was adapted for the screen by The Crown writer Tom Edge and directed by Rupert Goold.

The film hits theaters September 27.

Roger Federer wins 1,200th career match!

Love, love, love seeing Roger Federer reach new milestones in his legendary career.

Earlier today, in Madrid, the tennis icon achieved his 1,200th career victory with a dramatic 6-0, 4-6, 7-6 win over French star Gael Monfils.

The only male player to have won more matches in his career is Jimmy Connors with 1,256. Connors also holds the record for most tournament victories with 109. Federer is second with 101 titles.

In his first clay court tournament in three years, Federer has now reached the quarterfinals. Federer is playing in Madrid as a warm-up for the French Open which he won in 2009 and was runner-up four other times.


See presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s full chat with Trevor Noah on “The Daily Show”

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg was the guest on The Daily Show earlier this week and I’ve just watched it.

I’m so impressed with this dude that I had to share his interview with Trevor Noah in its entirety along with the behind-the-scenes segment. Buttigieg is here in Los Angeles today for a series of fundraisers. Here is a link to a Politico article posted today about Mayor Pete’s growing popularity among Californians despite the presence in the race of a home-state senator they love, Kamala Harris.

Thursday Morning Man: Joe LoCicero!

Today’s very handsome Morning Man, Joe LoCicero, has gotten my attention in recent days because he got married over the weekend to Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez.

Rodriguez and LoCicero were brought together by The CW show when they met on set in 2016. He played a stripper on Jane the Virgin and apparently his moves caught Rodriguez’s eye as they started dating soon after.

LoCicero has also acted in indie films like Welcome to Willits and Spaghettiman. His most recent project is a movie on Amazon Prime called Cop Chronicles.

Morning Man Classic: Ricky Nelson!

Ricky Nelson, one of the best looking men and most talented performers to ever grace a concert stage, television or movie screen was born 79 years ago today.

He grew up in front of America’s eyes performing with his parents and brother on Ozzie & Harriet. He began singing in the show and became one of the biggest teen idols of the 50s and 60s with such hits as I’m Walking, Travelin Man, Poor Little Fool, Teenage Idol and 25 other top 40 hits in all.

Sadly, Nelson died at the age of 45 in a plane crash on New Years Eve 1985. But his music lives on.
