Daily Update - Glee, American Horror Story, 2 and a Half Men and American Horror Story

Will Angelina Jolie be on Ryan Murphy’s – American Horror Story ?

American Horror Story is going after Angelina Jolie… sort of.

Ryan Murphy & Co. have quietly begun casting a major new Season 2 arch nemesis for Jessica Lange — and they’re using one of Jolie’s most famous movie roles as their template.

The series regular character, Gia, is described as a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret — “think Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted,” reads the casting notice. As such, interested actresses should be in their mid-20s and Caucasian. Intrestingly Jolie also played the lead role of Gia in the telemovie about a supermadel of the same name and won an Emmy.

Production on Horror Story‘s second season doesn’t get underway in mid-July, so producers are giving themselves ample time to find the right performer for the plum part. I really can’t see the enigmatic Jolie heading to TV can you?

Glee to do Whitney Tribute!

Though Glee has honored the late Whitney Houston with a timely cover of “I Will Always Love You,” it has been confirmed that New Directions will once again and more purposefully celebrate the musical icon this season with one of its signature tribute episodes.

First reported by E! Online, the drama is currently in production on the special installment that centers on the growing pains of Glee‘s graduating seniors. “It’s using Whitney’s music as a way to say goodbye,” a source tells the site. “A way to respectfully say ‘thank you’ for her music.”

Whitney Houston passed away February 11th 2012

Jon Cryer to put himself up for Best Actor Emmy rather than Supporting?

After six consecutive years of vying in the Supporting Actor in a Comedy race, Two and a Half Men‘s Jon Cryer reportedly will submit himself in the lead category at this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards.

As noted by the Gold Derby awards-centric website, which first reported on the change-up, both Cryer (whose camp would not confirm the move) and then-costar Charlie Sheen submitted for Lead Actor during the first two years of Men‘s run, but with zero success. After Cryer downshifted to the supporting race starting in 2006, he netted a supporting nod every single year, while Sheen went on to amass four lead nods. Winning!

With Sheen “moved on” now, and the supporting comedy actor race as competitive as ever (thanks to the Modern Family men) — and, as Gold Derby points out, both Steve Carell (gone from The Office) and Matt LeBlanc (Episodes is not eligible this year) out of the mix, Cryer’s move seems prudent.

Is he strong enough to compete against other possible nominees including co-star Ashton Kutcher, in a show that is steadily declining?
