Jennifer Lopez will guest star on lesbian drama The Fosters.
The former American Idol judge is producing the show for ABC - which features a same-sex couple and their family - and although they have ruled out an appearance by Jennifer in the first episode, she is keen to take part later in the season.
Jake T. Austin, who plays a foster son to the couple, told E! News, "She was maybe thinking about doing a cameo in the pilot, but there was some apprehension in deciding how early they wanted to feature someone like her into the show. So she'll definitely come on but at this point we just don't know when."
Jake is excited about the show, which features Teri Polo and Sherri Saum as the lesbian couple, because he feels it is "very timely." He explained, "It's very current, it's very timely and it's something that's needed, especially on a platform like ABC. The thing is it's a family show and it's relatable. It's not targeting any specific demographic. We're just trying to tell a story and to appeal to a mixed crowd."
Snoop Lion will star in One Life To Live. The rapper-turned-reggae artist will produce and perform the theme song for production company Prospect Park's revival of the legendary soap and will appear as himself on the show.
"We're thrilled to have the support of such an iconic artist, like Snoop Lion. To have him write and produce the theme song for this series and to have the amazingly talented Iza Lach on board, is just incredible. We are extremely grateful and excited for fans to hear the new theme song and of course catch Snoop Lion in upcoming episodes," Jeff Kwatinetz, chairman and CEO of Prospect Park.
Other stars set to appear in the revamped show include Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWoww" Farley and High School Musical's Corbin Bleu, who was thrilled to work with Snoop. "Fantastic day yesterday on the set of @onelifetolive with @snooplion #coolestguyever #OLTLPremiers 4/29 on @hulu (sic)," he wrote on Twitter.

Emily Deschanel wants to star with her sister Zooey in New Girl. The Bones actress has revealed she is planning to make a cameo appearance in her sibling's hit sitcom about hapless 20-something Jess Day, and would jump at the chance to join her on set as soon as she has some time off.
"Zooey played my cousin on an episode of Bones a couple of seasons ago and we've talked about me coming in to do New Girl. We shoot on the same lot, so if we weren't so busy it might be really easy to swing on by and play a part. It's hard to get a few hours off, let alone a couple of days to do her show. I watch every episode as soon as I can when I'm not working," she said.
Because the pair play polar opposite characters in their respective shows - Emily plays serious-minded forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennen - people assume they are different in real life, but the 36-year-old star thinks they share the same core values from growing up in the same family.
Chloe Sevigny is set to guest star on The Mindy Project.
The 38-year-old actress will portray Danny Castellano's (Chris Messina) ex wife Christina, a war photographer who makes an unexpected return to his life in a bid to give their relationship another chance. According to E! Online, Chloe will make her debut on the 22nd episode of the first season of the show, which has just been renewed for a second series.
Last year Chloe played Mia, a pre-op transgender hitman, in TV series Hit & Miss, but she admitted she was concerned that she wouldn't be able to do the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community justice in the role. "I was worried people would be angry that they didn't cast a real person who was transitioning. I asked why they didn't, and the producers said they didn't find the right person. It's a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right," she said.
The Mindy Project currently airs Tuesday nights on FOX.

"Shooting GO ON today and having a blast with Matthew! (sic)" she wrote on Twitter. Courteney, 48, later posted a picture of the pair on set, adding, "My first box husband."
Matthew, 43, was also ecstatic to have his former co-star on the set of his series, tweeting, "Courteney Cox shooting Go On today! She is fantastic, obviously. And my desire to show off in front of her is back in full swing! (sic)"

Miley Cyrus was "shocked" by Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones' rant about the show. The 19-year-old actor - who makes $350,000 for playing Jake Harper in the sitcom - called the show "filth" and begged viewers to stop watching and guest star Miley was surprised by her on-screen love interest's comments.

But Miley doesn't judge anyone and she of course wants Angus and everyone who works on the show to be happy and continue doing the show because she's a huge fan and she likes guest appearing. She had the time of her life when she worked with Angus and she even thinks he's hot and incredibly sweet. She even had fun hanging on set and filming with Ashton [Kutcher] and Jon [Cryer]," a source said.
Bradley Cooper says kissing Sarah Jessica Parker was a "nightmare." The Hangover actor guest starred in an episode of Sex and the City where he had to kiss Sarah's iconic character Carrie Bradshaw and he admits it was difficult because he was being told how to be intimate with her.
"I did Sex and the City and I was very nervous because I was driving a stick shift, a standard Porsche, and I thought I was going to bang Sarah Jessica Parker's head against the dashboard. That was all I was thinking about. And then right before we shot the scene, this guy came up and I think he said, 'SJP does no tongue. No tongue, man.' And I was like, 'Who's SJP?' So she kisses me, then straddles me in the front of the car and all I kept thinking about was keeping my tongue as far back in my mouth as possible. It was nightmare. But she wasn't - she was great."
Buffy fans, rejoice!
