Miley Cyrus has landed a guest role on Two and a Half Men.
The 19-year-old singer - who made her name on Disney series Hannah Montana - is set to return to acting after scoring a supporting role on the hit CBS sitcom. A source told E! News that Miley's "sexy" new character will be "rife with comedy" and will shake things up romantically on the show.
The starlet will play the new girl in town that Angus T. Jones' character, Jake Harper, falls for. Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) will also develop a "massive crush" on Miley's character later on.
Miley revealed an edgy new look yesterday when she posted pictures of her new pixie crop on twitter. "Never felt more me in my whole life. LOVE my hair, feel so happy, pretty, and free. (sic)" she exclaimed.
Miley recently got engaged to The Hunger Games heartthrob Liam Hemsworth.
50 Cent wants to star on Glee.
The "In Da Club" hitmaker thinks he would be perfect for a guest role on the hit musical TV show and hopes producers will write an original character for him to put his acting skills to the test.
"I probably would [consider it]. Depending on what the episode was or what they had planned for it. I'm excited... I just want to work. I want to play something different. Anything other than a rapper, because I don't feel like I'm working if I'm playing that. That's the easy part," the rapper told E! News. Glee has featured an eclectic mix of guest stars in the past including Lindsay Lohan, Ricky Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, so 50 Cent could become the show's very first rapper.
50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - branched out into acting in 2005 and has since starred alongside the likes of Robert De Niro and Bruce Willis. Although he says music is his first love, the 37-year-old star is keen for more challenging film roles in the future: "I have developed a passion for film. I still love music so I write music. I got a chance to explore my new passion for film. I've been lucky enough to get it right."
Alexa Chung is to appear in Gossip Girl.
The 28-year-old British presenter was seen on set in New York City yesterday (01.08.12) sporting full hair and make-up and wearing a blue and red dress for filming. However, it is unclear whether Alexa - who moved here in 2009 - is making a cameo role as herself or making her acting debut as no character details have been released at present. It is yet to be confirmed how many episodes the former model will appear in.
Gossip Girl launched in 2007, and it was recently revealed the forthcoming sixth season will be the last for the drama. Though most of the storyline details have been kept under wraps, it has been disclosed that Serena Van der Woodsen - played by Blake Lively - is to have an eventful series. "Serena has gone off the grid, beyond even the reach of Gossip Girl. Her friends fear for the worst and hope for the best, but even they can't imagine where they will ultimately find her," a spokesperson said.
Alexa follows in the footsteps of Elizabeth Hurley, who appeared in the fifth series of the show.
Johnny Depp is to make a cameo appearance in Family Guy.
The Dark Shadows actor will return to his title role from 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands for a brief gag in the adult animation. The 49-year-old star initially struggled to get back into character, but found inspiration by watching clips from the film.
"When he was in the booth, he said that he felt like he hadn't done that voice since he did it in front of the camera. [But] he was able to snap right back into Edward Scissorhands once we pulled up a clip from the movie," Family Guy executive producer Mark Hentemann told Entertainment Weekly.
Johnny impressed everyone involved in the show with his performance - particularly the female cast and crew members. "He was amazing - and demonstrated extraordinary patience with all the fawning women in our office who swarmed him," he added.
Though it is not clear when Johnny's appearance will broadcast, the new series of Family Guy returns to TV on September 30.
Benedict Cumberbatch is making a cameo appearance in The Simpsons.
The British actor landed a voice role in the famous animated sitcom following a chance meeting in Los Angeles: "I was at a meeting in the same place The Simpsons is recorded and heard there was a part going in an episode. I said, 'I hate to muscle in here guys but could I record it?' Next thing, I'm standing in a room with all those famous voices; Bart, Marge, Homer, Lisa."
The Star Trek 2 actor - who shot to fame playing iconic detective Sherlock Holmes in TV series Sherlock - was thrilled to get to be part of the cartoon because he likes to take on as many varied roles as possible. "I like treating every job as the first time and to do that, I'll vary the work, so I'll be a knuckle head and run around with girls and guns, then I'll slow it down and do something different like [Edwardian drama] Parade's End," he said.
Cheryl Cole will appear in Glee.
Jane Lynch - who plays coach Sue Sylvester in the musical TV show - has confirmed talks have been on-going for the 29-year-old star to take part in the show, but it has now been revealed she will be definitely be given a cameo role: "There's been talk on set of Cheryl appearing for a year or so, but it's set to happen now. Matthew Morrison has spoken very highly of her [after she appeared in his film What To Expect When You're Expecting] and the younger guys on set are keen to have her on, for obvious reasons. Matthew's chatted to her and she seems keen. Cheryl's the perfect Glee fit, she can sing, she can dance and she looks good. It would be cool if she played herself."
Jane also joked her alter-ego Sue would not take any messing around from the "Call My Name" hitmaker and would be harsher on her than Simon Cowell - who famously sacked her after she worked on four auditions on the US version of The X Factor.
Paris Hilton had to turn down a guest role in the finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The hotel heiress was asked by producers of the hit reality TV show to appear alongside her aunts, Kyle and Kim Richards, but she was forced to decline because she is out of the country on business.
"Paris was asked to be a part of the finale which will take place in mid-July. She is a big fan of the show and totally supports her family appearing on it, but had to decline because she will be out of the country. Paris will be extremely busy promoting her new album, and just has too much going on right now to commit to taking on anymore projects," a source said.
Kyle and Kim were also disappointed Paris couldn't take part as they know she would have been a hit. "Producers were hopeful Paris would be able to be a part of the finale, which they could have promoted and publicised. Paris definitely would have greatly bolstered the ratings for the finale, but, her schedule just couldn't accommodate it. Paris' aunts, Kim and Kyle also wanted her to be on the show, but they completely understand," the source added.
Cheryl Cole is being lined up for a role in Modern Family.
The 28-year-old singer - who premiered her new single "Call My Name" yesterday - has been approached by bosses of the multi-award winning ABC comedy to take on a guest part. "They really want to get Cheryl involved. And it's a coveted slot. Everyone from Britney Spears to Lady Gaga have made it known that they would love to appear in it. It's a real honor to be asked to do it and it would be a great next step after Cheryl's appearance in the movie What To Expect When You're Expecting, a source told The Daily Mirror.
