NEWS: Minka Kelly, Bob Guza, Ryan Murphy, Kate Walsh

Minka Kelly And Rachael Taylor Close To Angel Gigs in ABC's CHARLIE'S ANGELS
They would join previously cast Annie Ilonzeh to form the new trio of sexy female sleuths - Kelly, whose character will be renamed, Ilonzeh's Kate and Taylor's Abby.

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Michael reveals he was raped, Bob Guza explains
"We needed a catalyst, and we realized we had a great one in Abby [Michael's stripper friend played by Andrea Bogart]. Michael will see Abby about to be raped by her ex-boyfriend and he flashes back to what happened to him in prison and goes berserk. In that flashback, we'll see Michael's assault in more detail, though nothing gratuitous or titillating. We wanted to make it clear the assault on Abby has visual and physical parallels to the assault on Michael. The incident with Abby — Michael does save her before she's actually raped — will serve as a kind of catharsis for Michael, and he is finally able to admit to Jason [Steve Burton] that he was indeed raped. He then tells his parents, Sonny [Maurice Benard] and Carly [Laura Wright]."

GLEE Creator Ryan Murphy Responds To Kings Of Leon Drummer's Twitter Comments
"Just read Nathan Followill's Tweet…in which he implied I should ‘get a manicure and buy a bra.’ Wow. That's a homophobe badly in need of some education. I'm all for manicures, don't wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don't. But it's telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliché, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred like this."

FIRST LOOK: NBC Universal’s New Logo
