Stars of 'Girls' and 'Parenthood' to headline Off Broadway production

Girls‘s Shoshanna and Parenthood‘s Ryan are coming to a stage near you, if you happen to be in Midtown New York City.

Zosia Mamet and Matt Lauria are set to headline MCC Theater’s Off Broadway production of Really Really, a play by Paul Downs Colaizzo that premiered last season in Washington, D. C. David Cromer (Off Broadway’s 2009 Our Town) will direct.

The play takes place the night after a wild college party, when questions begin to arise about ambitious student Leigh (Mamet) and rugby player Davis (Lauria). The truth of what happened between them, of course, is more complicated than it seems.

Previews for Really Really begin Jan. 31; opening night is set for Feb. 19.

'Parenthood' cast talks hopes for next season: 'I would like them to get Crosby on a motorcycle'

After years of heartbreak and torrid affairs with pretty cellists, it’s finally happened: Crosby and Jasmine are man and wife. But while last night’s emotionally gratifying finale definitively closed some long-open doors, there are still plenty of unanswered questions lingering over the Braverman family.

EW was on set earlier this month with the entire cast as they shot the on-again, off-again couple’s nuptials. Though NBC has yet to pick up the beloved family drama for a fourth season, Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard and Co. have a variety of hopes and dreams for their characters, and the show in general. MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD! READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood' cast teases a very Braverman wedding (Hint: It involves Katy Perry and food fights)

The sprawling, intense, but ultimately loving Braverman family has been mercilessly tugging at viewers’ heartstrings for three years. We’ve seen devastating fights, numerous heartbreaks, and, most recently, a last-minute adoption letdown that would make even Crosby shed a tear or two. Thankfully, this infinitely relatable family will end the season with reason to celebrate: Crosby and Jasmine’s long-awaited, but ultimately last minute, backyard wedding.

EW was on set with Peter Krause, Dax Shepard, Joy Bryant and Co., as they filmed the wedding spectacular earlier this month, giving us a front-row seat to the nuptial action. According to the groom, viewers can expect all the standard bells and whistles — but that isn’t necessarily a good thing. (Warning: Some SPOILERS follow.) READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood' poll: Max made a friend! Who cried?

On last night’s Parenthood, we watched Max and classmate Micah bond while sitting out gym class. I cheered and got a little misty. When Max, who has Asperger’s, invited Micah over to his house to play videogames, and Micah’s mother told Adam and Kristina that Micah, who has spina bifida, has never had a friend before, I teared up. Truly, it filled me with the amount of joy I usually get watching a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple finally get together after seasons of anticipation. I think I’m even happier for the parents than I am for the boys. I don’t have children, but on some level, having a late father who lost his ability to walk and communicate during a lengthy illness, I understand what it’s like to want so badly to bring joy into someone’s life and the power of the moment when you feel like it’s actually happening. Who else got misty? Poll below.  READ FULL STORY

NBC’s epic Super Bowl promo features literally everyone on NBC -- VIDEO

Whether or not you were happy with the outcome of the Super Bowl, you’ll find it hard not to smile while watching NBC’s ridiculously fun promo (which aired during the pre-show) featuring the casts of… well, just about everything on NBC.

The Peacock gathered its various stars together for a super-sized Super Bowl commercial featuring a rousing rendition of “Brotherhood of Man” from the Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business (Without Really Trying).” READ FULL STORY

Worst of 2011: Worst hair in movies and TV?

Ugh, hair. Sometimes you have luscious, deep-conditioned, well-highlighted tresses like Sarah Braverman and the male and female stars of Twilight, and sometimes you look like Bradley Cooper at the beginning of Limitless. We all have our bad days, but sometimes actors must endure entire bad hair seasons. It’s hard out there for a star! Below, our scraggly shortlists for 2011′s Worst Movie and TV Hair. READ FULL STORY

'Parenthood': How many times did you tear up during last night's episode?

Midseason finales tend to end with a bang — a breakup, a pregnancy, a difficult death, a cliff-hanger, an ambulance accident that threatens the lives of two main cast members. Last night’s Parenthood had none of these — but it still remains one of my favorite pre-hiatus episodes this season.

Much of the episode centered around the feud between Adam and Kristina after he confessed to sharing a kiss with Rachel, his assistant. Kristina, who was also preparing for her first day working for the campaign, understandably had bitter feelings toward Adam. Adam, who revealed that he hadn’t fired his assistant as they’d discussed, struggled to make amends.

And that’s just a piece of the Braverman drama that went down last night. READ FULL STORY
