Exciting <I>Lost</I> Casting, Particularly for Those of You Who Agree With Me That <I>Three Kings</I> Is The Greatest Movie of All Time Two of Lost Season 5's four new bad asses have been cast, and while I don't know anything about one of them, the other made movie magic in one of the greatest comedic torture scenes in cinematic history, so I'm pretty thrilled. The actor I know nothing about, Zuleikha Robinson, will play Llana, the dangerous European woman of mystery we heard about in August. Although Robinson seems to be one helluva showkiller, with a resumé that includes New Amsterdam, Rome and The Lone Gunmen, I'm pretty sure Lost will be safe from her showkilling ways.

Early Bonnie Hunt Show Impressions

Early <I>Bonnie Hunt Show</I> Impressions As an unabashed, longtime Bonnie Hunt enthusiast, I decided to disregard yesterday's premiere of The Bonnie Hunt Show in favor of today's episode for blog purposes, partly because Hunt seemed really nervous for the whole first episode and not entirely herself, and partly because the lunatic impression/accent generator on speed that is Robin Williams on a talk show annoyingly took up most of it. Bonnie seemed much more relaxed today during both her monologue (which she does sitting behind a desk that is so low it's distracting) and her interview with the fabulous Swoosie Kurtz, who I'd wager is a lot less frustrating to interview than Robin Williams.

Sesame Street, We Need To Talk

<i>Sesame Street</i>, We Need To Talk I have a bone to pick with you, Sesame Street. I'll give you the Feist sing-along skit -- who can really eff with "1 2 3 4 Monsters Walking 'Cross the Floor"? And I'll most assuredly give you St. Neil as the Shoe Fairy because, um, genius? But what's all this celeb-courting, high-concept, vaguely inappropriate biznass of late? When you have Kim Cattrall invoking her sexed up cougar incarnation Samantha Jones in close proximity to Oscar's trash can, I can't help but wonder if things have gone a little too far. Playing up to the parents is nothing new -- cuz really, is a kid who doesn't yet know how to control his bowels gonna get a 30 Rock parody? -- but when we have Jonah Hill, who is known nearly exclusively for playing sailor-mouthed stoners, waxing poetic about mustaches that look like outtakes from a seventies porno, it's time to rein it the hell in. What sorts of values are we teaching kids when a talking cake tries to make out with Jessica Alba? US Weekly will have them in a death vice soon enough. Does the one unspoiled place where a kid can hang out with monsters and learn to tie his shoes in peace need to beat the trashy tabs to the punch?

Time to Face Reality, Emmys

Time to Face Reality, Emmys

Apparently, this year being the first year that reality show hosts are eligible for Emmy awards isn't good enough for some people. DHD has reported that, according to a "reliable source," the hosts of this year's Emmy awards ceremony will be not one, not two, not three, not six, but all five of the nominees in the Reality Host category. So if you usually watch the show to escape reality TV (despite the fact that it... is... reality TV), you're S.O.L. But if you love reality TV and want to have a million of its babies live on a major network during primetime, you are in luck.

Amy Poehler's New Job

Amy Poehler's New Job Amy Poehler has been added to the cast of the Office spinoff that apparently is in no way an Office spinoff, so please for the love of god stop calling it an Office spinoff. The funny lady (who I guess is leaving SNL now? As much as it pains me, it's time for her to move on) will join comedian Aziz Ansari in Office writers/producers Greg Daniels and Mike Schur's new NBC sitcom, set to premiere next winter in a sexy Thursday night post-Office timeslot.

FX: Now Gayer Than Bravo!

FX: Now Gayer Than Bravo! According to GLAAD, FX is the most gay-friendly network in all the land! The advocacy group has awarded the network a "good" rating in their second annual GLAAD Network Responsibility Index, an achievement largely due to Nip/Tuck and less largely due to all those King of the Hill reruns. Showtime and HBO were a close second and third in the cable category, respectively, while A&E, Spike, TBS, USA, and TNT could really stand to gay it up a little. Those guys were given a big ole "failing" grade. Bravo and Logo don't seem to have been rated, I'm guessing because it just goes without saying.
