Yesterday was a fine day to be Lauren Graham (as if all the others aren’t). Because in addition to the news that Gilmore Girls is set to have a series of special episodes on Netflix, it was announced that Graham and her other, more recent, perhaps more realistic TV daughter had acquired the rights to ‘The Royal We’ for Graham to write and Mae Whitman to star in. Full Story

Have you heard about this one? So Mae Whitman played the President’s Daughter in Independence Day. In 1996.   She was 8. Now they’re making Independence Day 2 to come out next year, a full 20 years later. All bets should be off, cast-wise, 20 years later. Who knows who will be available or alive? But in this case, just about everyone is coming back. Full Story

Ha. Look at Mae Whitman. In the best outfit she’s ever worn. For the premiere of The DUFF in NYC last night. The DUFF opens this weekend. Mae plays The DUFF– Designated Ugly Fat Friend. Robbie Amell is her childhood best friend, next door neighbour, nemesis, and, well, I think you know the formula. Full Story

When I started to write this article I wrote that I had last written about The DUFF in the summer. Turns out I’m wrong – it was only October 8th. It seems like much longer ago. Maybe because I’ve been trying to fight my way through the book since then. Full Story

Mae Whitman stars in The Duff, an upcoming movie for which you need to know two pertinent pieces of information:  first, it’s based on a book written by an author, Kody Keplinger, who was 17 at the time of publication; second, and the one you’ll hear most about, is that “Duff” stands for “Designated Ugly Fat Friend”. Full Story

Parenthood panelled at PaleyFest yesterday. Deadline reported on the discussion. Needless to say, for fans of the show, the big question is whether or not the show will be back for Season 5. Is Jason Katims used to it by now? Because it was like this with Friday Night Lights too. Full Story

And now, the “fangirl if they’re your favourites” voting roundup. If anyone looks happiest about voting it’s Mae Whitman, who is so proud and happy you’d think it was her first time.  I don’t think it is -- she’s 24 -- but it’s cute as all heck nonetheless… Whereas Hilary Duff looks like this is just a long line of errands she’s doing today, don’t you think? I guess the white top is ideal for letting the sticker show, and/or the red bra-slash-tank underneath implies patriotism, but don’t you think she could dress a little snappier for voting day when she KNEW she’d be photographed?  Josh Duhamel went for this “blank canvas with a sticker” look as well, but he looks a little less …oh, I don’t know, completely posed? By this logic,  Elizabeth Banks is the anti-famewhore, as this charming pic of her boobs and her voting sticker does not include her face. Full Story

Young couple frolicking for Parenthood

I can’t decide what I like best about these shots of Mae Whitman and Matt Lauria making out on camera for scenes in an upcoming Parenthood.   A real front-runner is Mae’s stance – that wide-legged  totally off balance pose is kind of hysterical to me, outlining both the wee-ness of her, and my projection that Amber couldn’t take a romantic move like kissing in the ocean without poking a little bit of fun at it. Full Story

I have to begin by confessing that I have not read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. And I can safely say that I regret letting it slip through the cracks. Because if a movie this good came from a book, I can only imagine how transformative that book must be.  As a movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower will go down as one of the great coming of age classics. Full Story
