The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Scott Speedman is having a comeback, someone's letting Lindsay Lohan do live television, and Chris Colfer made a little movie.
Felicity finally chose Ben (well done, girl) like ten years ago (uh, spoiler alert, sorry), so that's a little insane, but it also means that Scott Speedman, who played the proud-maned young swain in question, hasn't really done much in a decade. Sure there was Underworld, but that hardly counts. Really he's been mostly MIA since Felicity flickered off the air, and that's too bad! I mean, look at him! He's like a gourmet chicken finger, that one. A crisp, Canadian golden brown! So it's very good news that he seems to be on his way back. Yes, Scott Speedman is speedmaning back onto the scene, first in a supporting role in The Vow, currently enswooning movie audiences at romance houses the nation over, and next in a new ABC pilot from The Shield's Shawn Ryan about a submarine crew that decides to declare itself a sovereign nuclear nation. Andre Braugher stars. So... that doesn't sound great, we'd much rather watch a new show called Scott Speedman Tries on Sweaters and Then Cooks Dinner, but still, good for him for working. Pretty much everyone from Felicity is taken care of now! Well, uh, except Amy Jo Johnson. Nobody's heard from her in years. Rita Repulsa must have finally gotten her or something. Too bad. [TV Line]
Uh oh, batten down the hatches, New York. Cocaine tornado Lindsay Lohan is blowing into town to come host Saturday Night Live on March 3rd. She is promoting... absolutely nothing, but oh well! It's Lindsay Lohan! Hopefully there will be some really fun jokes from 2007 about how she's crazy and then they'll do "What's Up With That" and "Secret Word" and that'll be that. They really don't need to do anything beyond that, as everyone will tune in anyway out of sheer curiosity. Will she fall down? Will she take anyone down with her when she falls down? How many times will she fall down? Will it be down a flight of stairs? Up a flight of stairs? There are just so many things to wonder about Lindsay Lohan falling down on Saturday Night Live on March 3rd. [The Hollywood Reporter]
