Reality star Stanley Hudson has taken dramatic steps to stay in the spotlight with his current series The Office ending soon.
A new season of Project Runway started recently, and though the biggest surprise was billed as the new “team” concept for this season, the real surprise was the cast. Or one cast member, in particular. Stanley Hudson debuted his artistic touch along with his fellow contestants last week. Does that name sound familiar? It should- that’s the same Stanley Hudson that you’ve enjoyed watching on the primetime documentary series “The Office” since 2005. Stanley has traded in paper sales for primping models for the runway.
Look for Ted "The Closer" McGinley on this season of The Office.
Los Angeles—In an effort to settle the debate once and for all over whether NBC’s once mega-hit British-inspired sitcom, “The Office,” has indeed jumped the shark, producers confirmed yesterday that they are adding Ted McGinley, known as the “Patron Saint of Jumping the Shark,” to the cast, putting the nail in the show’s coffin. And, BONUS! To check off another one of the “You know your favorite TV show’s jumped the shark when…” storylines for typical confirmation the show has jumped, McGinley will be playing Andy Bernard’s long-lost brother!
Daniel Day-Lewis started his day as an insurance claims adjuster with a smile, but it wouldn’t last.
Los Angeles—Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis, known for his intense, thorough research into film roles he accepts, has reportedly dropped out of an upcoming film about an insurance claims adjuster after he spent just over half a day researching the role, his representatives have confirmed.
In a statement released by his publicist yesterday, Day-Lewis said, in part: “The script is good, the crew are good. Just spending an entire day with (the claims adjuster) either yelling at people on the phone or getting yelled at by people on the phone, it just was too much. I don’t know how these people do it. I’d rather play a customer service rep than one of these poor bastards.”

Wilkes-Barre, PA—What was supposed to be a nice lunch appointment with an old friend turned ugly Monday when Wilkes-Barre caught Scranton at a Chili’s restaurant with Blakely, after Scranton had canceled its planned lunch with Wilkes-Barre earlier that morning because “something came up.”
“We received a text around 9:10 Monday morning,” Vivian Smart, Wilkes-Barre media relations director said. “The text was from Scranton, who advised they were sorry, but would have to beg out of lunch that was scheduled for noon. We took Scranton at their word, and we were able to make other lunch arrangements with an old college friend who happened to be driving through town.”
But when Wilkes-Barre showed up to meet their old college friend at Chili’s, they were surprised “and frankly, a little humiliated” to see Scranton there at a table with Blakely enjoying an appetizer.
