Wednesday Morning Man: Harris Dickinson!

Took my nephew to see Maleficent: Mistress of Evil over the weekend and was quite taken with the actor who plays Prince Phillip in the film.

Those eyes. Those lips.

Wait a minute, that’s the babe from Beach Rats!

He’s 23-year-old Harris Dickinson who was so good in that 2017 film that he was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

He went on to portray kidnapped heir John Paul Getty III in the first season of the FX drama series Trust and Liam Stewart in the science-fiction film The Darkest Minds. He also has the leading role in the upcoming prequel in the Kingsman franchise and is part of Xavier Dolan’s latest movie Matthias & Maxime which was an official selection at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Get ready for “RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race”

Which celebrities do you want to see do drag?

VH1 today announced that “RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race,” an expansion of the Emmy® award-winning franchise, has been greenlit for 2020. The four-episode event series will feature 12 sickening celebrities as they sashay into the ‘werk’ room to compete for the first-ever title of “America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar.” The premiere date and star-studded guests will be announced soon.

In each episode, three celebrities will undergo a complete drag transformation with the help of some of the most iconic queen supremes from the series, including Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Bob the Drag Queen, Kim Chi, Monét X Change, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo. The celebrity cast will give it their all to compete for the title and win prize money for the charity of their choice.

“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” said four-time Emmy® Award-winning host and Executive Producer, RuPaul Charles. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”


Flashback: When Barbra Streisand and Ethel Merman were guests on “The Judy Garland Show”

The movie Judy starring Renee Zellweger has us thinking about Judy Garland a bit more these days.

I like that because I think she was a wonderful entertainer and gave us so many movie and television memories.

That includes her CBS series The Judy Garland Show which ran during the 1963-64 season. In all, 26 episodes were made including this one which aired on Oct. 6, 1963. The guests included Barbra Streisand and Ethel Merman!

That’s an amazing trio.

Here is the episode in its entirety.

WATCH: Ronan Farrow’s in-depth conversation with Sunny Hostin about “Catch and Kill”

Ronan Farrow discusses his harrowing book, Catch and Kill, with Sunny Hostin of The View at a Politics and Prose event. I’ve watched Farrow’s various TV interviews in recent weeks and this conversation goes so much more in-depth than any of them. It’s shocking how horrible people can be and in this conversation, Farrow takes NBC News executives, Harvey Weinstein, and attorney Lisa Bloom, among others, to task.

Tuesday Morning Man: Leonardo Sbaraglia!

Last week, I caught the superb film Pain & Glory (written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar) and just swooned over Leonardo Sbaraglia who plays the old flame of the film’s main character played by Antonio Banderas.

Sbaraglia, 49, is a prominent Argentine actor with extensive credits in both Argentina and Spain. He has also worked in Mexico, and was cast in his first English-language role in Red Lights.

He starred with Eusebio Poncela in Intacto (Intact), a 2001 thriller directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and received a Goya Award for Best New Actor. He was again nominated for the Goya Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2007 for his role of Jesús Irurre in the film Salvador.

Late Night Video: Dame Julie Andrews chats with Colbert about therapy, “Sound of Music” and more!

Dame Julie Andrews is so beloved as you can see by the reaction the audience at The Late Show With Steohen Colbert had to her tonight as she walked onto the stage. The legendary star of The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and other classic films has a new memoir out and chats with Colbert about that, about her “chum” Carol Burnett, and in my favorite part of the interview, she shares what therapy has done for her.

See a preview of Matt Bomer in “The Sinner”

For six seasons, Matt Bomer was a fixture on the USA Network as the star of White Collar.

He’s worked non-stop in film (Magic Mike, Papi Chulo, The Nice Guys), television (American Horror Story, Will & Grace, Doom Patrol, The Normal Heart), and stage (The Boys in the Band) since the end of White Collar. Now he returns to USA in a very different role for season three of The Sinner, an anthology series that examines how and why ordinary people commit brutal crimes.

Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) investigates a tragic car accident in upstate New York and uncovers a hidden crime that pulls him into the most dangerous and disturbing case of his career. Bomer stars here as Jamie, an upstanding local resident and expectant father who looks to Ambrose for support in the wake of the accident.

The wreckage includes a blood-soaked headlight and the hand of a potential victim. Jamie’s exact involvement in the accident remains unclear but he does have a visible scar.

See “Glee” alum Kevin McHale sing his version of Camila Cabello’s “Never Be The Same” on “The X Factor”

Since Glee ended its six season run several years ago, Lea Michele starred in Scream Queens, Chris Colfer has become a best selling author, Amber Riley won the Olivier Award for work on the London stage, Darren Criss has won the Emmy and an armload of other awards for the Versace miniseries, and Jane Lynch has averaged about an Emmy a year for everything from hosting Hollywood Game Night to guest starring in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

So what about Kevin McHale who played Artie Abrams on the show?

The 31 year old had a role in the ABC miniseries When We Rise and in 2018 came out publicly as gay man. And now, as you will see in this video, he’s competing in The X Factor: Celebrity. For his first performance, Kevin sings his version of Camila Cabello’s Never Be The Same and the judges seem impressed!


Monday Morning Man: Gary Cahill!

There’s nothing quite as sexy as a great smile. But a hot body sure can add to the equation!

Gary Cahill, an English footballer who plays as a central defender for Premier League club Crystal Palace and previously played for England national team. He played for Chelsea from 2011-18 and signed a two-year contract with Crystal Palace earlier this year.

Gary usually plays center back for both club and country.

He’s also really good at headers!

Comeback kid Andy Murray in tears after winning his first tennis tournament since 2017

So happy for Andy Murray who scored a 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over old rival Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open in Antwerp.

It was his first tournament victory since early 2017 when he was the number one ranked player in the world. Since then, he struggled with hip problems that required two surgeries, long stretches away from the game, and fear that his career might be over.

It is not and after the win, Murray was in tears.

“I don’t know why you get emotional about certain things or the reason for why it comes. Everyone is different,” he said. “It was because the past few years have been hard for me and tennis is something that I love doing and today was unexpected and yeah, there’s lots of reasons for me to be emotional today.”

Wawrinka has come back from injuries of his own the past few years. These are the only two players in the past 15 years or so who have managed to carve out Hall of Fame careers for themselves during the nearly unshakable dominance of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic who have won 20, 19, and 16 grand slam singles titles respectively.

Wawrinka has won the Australian Open, the French Open, and the US Open while Murray is a two-time Wimbledon champ, two-time Olympic gold medalist in singles, a US Open champion, and is the only one besides the “big three” to be ranked number one since 2004.

Congrats to Andy!

Showtune Sunday: The singing Bradys!

With the Brady kids back in the limelight in recent months thanks to the terrific renovation show on HGTV, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of their musical forays.

Thy had a few episodes on The Brady Bunch where they sang (Silver Platters, Time to Change) which must’ve been why ABC decided a few years after they canceled the sitcom to bring them all back in The Brady Bunch Variety Hour.


Florence Henderson and Barry Williams were the only real musical performers but everyone gave it a try. Look at the choreography in the variety show clips! I have a new appreciation for fake Jan Geri Reischl who stepped in when Eve Plumb declined to take part in the show.

Enjoy the memories!
