NEWS: Eileen Fulton, GLEE Preview, MAD MEN Clothes

Daytime Soap's Eileen Fulton Joins 'My Fair Lady' Cast At UConn
Fulton will play Mrs. Higgins in the Connecticut Repertory Theatre production of "My Fair Lady," starring Terrence Mann and choreographed by Charlotte d'Amboise. Richard Ruiz (Nicely Nicely in Long Wharf theatre's "Guys and Dolls") plays Alfred P. Doolittle.

Ryan Murphy on the (non-) GLEE news: 'Nobody wants to see a high school senior with a bald spot'
“A year ago, I said I think the best thing you can do on a show like this is not have eight-year seniors,” Murphy told ShowTracker. “Nobody wants to see a high school senior with a bald spot. We want to stay true to what ‘Glee’ is about, which is finding your voice and your place in the world; to stretch that out for eight seasons — though that might be lucrative for us — I don’t think would be fair to the fans. They expect growth in those characters.”

GLEE Boss Ryan Murphy: 'Amazing Stories' Coming for Mercedes, Mike, Tina, and Sue
“Season 2 was definitely about bigger, better, flashier,” says Murphy. “And I loved so much about Season 2. I loved the Gwyneth story. I loved the bullying story. Chris Colfer and Darren Criss did an amazing job, as did Max Adler. But Season 3 we decided is going to be character, character, character.” How will that manifest itself? For starters, there’ll be only one musical tribute episode — though it’ll be a biggie. “It’s one I’ve been working on for two years — it took forever to clear — with a really big artist,” Murphy teases. Oh, and don’t expect a parade of Oscar winners, pop divas, and Broadway vets to populate the McKinley High hallways. “We’re not going to have any guest stars,” says Murphy. “And we’re going to do fewer songs.”

Mario Batali on marriage, Albany ‘picnics’
Celebrity chief Mario Batali is one of a parade of celebrities to weigh in on the push to legalize same-sex marriage in New York state, chatting with camera crews as Republican senators continued to discuss in their conference whether a bill on the subject should come to the floor. Batali is wearing orange crocs, shorts and a pink hair tie. Kind of sticks out from the suits.
