Howdy! Another freezing morning, but we got lots to chat about that will make us all warm and fuzzy, much like my brain before coffee. Let’s start off with our adorable dynamic duo Ichabod and Abbie of Sleepy Hollow! Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison look fabulous on the cover of TV Guide, don’t you think? And let me just add how much I LOVE the opening to this TV Guide article by Aubry D’Arminio.
“The end is nigh for Sleepy Hollow‘s first season. And it looks extremely…busy. It’s a stinging-cold December morning at Wilmington, North Carolina’s EUE/Screen Gems Studios. In the nearby woods, a stuntwoman wearing a low-cut, corseted frock is being pulled through the air on a thick cord and dropped nose-first onto a safety mat. “Can she be yanked even harder?” director Ken Olin (thirtysomething) asks the crew member at the other end of the rope. Yes, she certainly can.”
Wilmington. North Carolina. EUE/Screen Gems. Crew – So many of my favorite buzz words in the opening paragraph!
READ TV GUIDE’S “Inside Sleepy Hollow’s Shocking Season Finale”
“Sleepy Hollow collects the most tweets per minute of any current Fox show and is the second most popular new series on social media after The Originals, with nearly 1 million fans across Facebook and Twitter alone.”
New characters are coming to Chester’s Mill. Michael Ausiello from TVLine.com reports not one, not two, but three. He says Season 2 will introduce three new characters, including:
Sam: a gruff kinda guy who lives in the woods. The locals call him a “crazy drunk” which to me translates he will have answers to some dilemmas this season. He is a relative or was once someone close to one of the characters we know well, but they aren’t saying who.
Rebecca: a 30 something teacher. Big Jim wants her to get a Dome school going, but of course his motivation isn’t higher education.
A “new girl” in town: A very vague and ageless description, but we know that she is “in to” Joe and Norrie, so we can assume she’s a teen.
MTV is so kind. Now that the North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa is officially available for digital download, they gave us a bonus! Here’s an exclusive look at one of the film’s many deleted scenes. A gem, MTV says, that’s as good as the pranks that made the final cut. “Bad Grandpa” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 28.

If A-Listers never went to Hollywood: Finally, this got me laughing out loud, so I thought I would share. If the hottest celebs were regular folks and they did without their personal trainers, stylists and nutritionists, they might look something like this. Thanks to the power of Photoshop and Danny Evans, who has got mad skills, we get to see what some famous celebrities would look like if “they didn’t take the Hollywood career path.” Some of these photoshop jobs are flawless. This guy is REAL good! You gotta see the others as well. Hilarious shots of Rihanna, Britney Spears, Johnny Depp, and more. SEE PHOTOS NOW
