Have you missed seeing Billy Magnussen (pictured above with co-star David Hyde Pierce) and his ripped body since As the World Turns ended its run? If so, now is your chance to see him strip to his skivvies once again during the run of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre.
Magnussen plays Masha’s (Sigourney Weaver) boy toy Spike, who has a propensity for abandoning most of his clothes, in the play that opened November 12.
Theater Mania weighed in on Magnussen’s role,
Life gets temporarily upended when Masha unexpectedly shows up one day – with decades-younger boy-toy Spike in tow (the extraordinarily fit and often semi-dressed Billy Magnussen). She has returned ostensibly to attend a neighbor's costume ball, but also to deliver the shocking news that she has decided to sell the family homestead in order to cut down on her own expenses.
No. 10: EJ DiMera, Days of Our Lives
He may have played dirty to beat incumbent Mayor of Salem, U.S.A. Abe Carver (James Reynolds), but the filthier EJ DiMera (James Scott) gets on Days of Our Lives, the more we like him! Besides, "Honest" Abe and his campaign manager Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Melissa Reeves) ended up playing just as many foul tricks as Elvis and his PR-flack-with-benefits Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) did during the nasty political battle.
What's that they say, if you can't beat 'em, cheat 'em? Jennifer Rose, your donut-making Gran would be appalled!
Political Animals, the fantastic miniseries by Greg Berlanti, has been turned into roadkill by USA. According to TV Line, USA appreciated the episodes, but it wasn't enough.
“We are proud of Political Animals, our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer,” the network said in a statement. “It was a pleasure to work with Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver. We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives.”
