  • Weekend Birthdays! (Note: Birthday shoutouts are for out entertainers, allies, or for any celeb that seems to have a following on AE). Kristin Davis is 47, Billy Zane is 46, Carrot Top is 47, Sean Astin is 41, Chelsea Handler is 37, and Michael Bolton is 59. What are your top five Michael songs? Here are my picks: 5.”Missing You Now.” 4. “How Can We Be Lovers”, 3. “Time, Love, and Tenderness” 2. “Said I Loved You … But I Lied,” 1. “That’s What Love Is All About”

  • Big casting news for The Walking Dead. British actor David Morrissey will join the show in Season Three as The Governor, who, from everything I’ve heard, was a very important character in the comics.
  • Early box office predictions show that Good Deeds is underperforming, and Wanderlust is a huge bomb. I think my boo Paul Rudd needs some career advice.
  • Meet Daniel. He’s about to come out to his mom on hidden camera. I’ve read comments from people who think the mom is “shrill.” No, she’s a mom, and that’s how moms are. And people are upset that Daniel was on his phone too much. No, he’s a teenager, and that’s how teenagers are.

  • In other casting news, Brothers & Sisters star Dave Annable has booked the lead in the supernatural ABC pilot 666 Park Avenue.

  • Speaking of, please join me at 8:00 PM ET on Sunday when I Liveblog The Academy Awards! We’ll be using CoverIt Live, which will offer a fun interactive way to enjoy the show. And yes, there will be snark!
  • Below you can see a character from a famous TV show. Can you name it?
