POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched Monday night’s episode of “House” yet, avert your eyes and immediately check it out on your DVR or VOD. Then come back and read the rest of the story, because we’re referencing a major plot point from the “Nobody’s Fault” episode.
Yesterday, we foreshadowed that Monday night’s episode would be a game-changer for at least one of the “House” doctors, and it certainly was. Dr. Chase (Jesse Spencer) is now fighting to regain the use of his legs after being stabbed by a patient. And toward the end of the episode, did we actually see a moment of possible empathy from Dr. House (Hugh Laurie)?
Things may never be the same again for Chase, but could this incident also spark a change for House as well? After all, he’s been grimacing (and medicating) through severe leg pain ever since we knew him, so he certainly knows the challenges and suffering that lie ahead for Chase.
So we asked Jesse Spencer if the relationship between the two doctors will fundamentally change — if House is now looking at Chase as a younger version of himself.
New episodes of “House” air Monday nights at 8/7c on Fox.
Ricky Martin is guest starring as the Spanish teacher this Tuesday night on an all-new episode of Glee. He will be playing “David Martinez” who recently became a Spanish teacher but was previously a tooth model.
The entire Glee cast was excited to have him on set. As Chris Colfer put it, “I have never seen in my three years of Glee, I have never seen a guest star walk onto set and literally you have to mop the floor of everyone that they meet, because everyone is just melting around him. Everyone, everyone…even Cory Monteith.” I guess Ricky’s good looks says it all!
So what can you look forward to? New Directions will be performing LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” in English & Spanish and what’s funny is that’s how Ricky Martin’s character first introduces himself to the Glee club, “Hi nice to meet you. I am sexy and I know it, and let’s dance. And I am going to tell you how to do it.” Ricky Martin was excited about performing this song in particular because he says it has a very special message, “What I loved about ‘Sexy and I Know It is me telling them how important it is to believe in yourself. And that is a message that should be out there constantly for teenagers. It is about self-esteem, it is about dignity.” You can also expect to see Matthew Morrison’s character, Will Schuester, performing in a full Matador outfit – Ole! We recently caught up with Harry Shum Jr. to talk about Ricky Martin and what it was like to have him on set. Harry also gave his thoughts on Ricky’s infamous dance moves. He wouldn’t even dare to attempt a dance-off!
Make sure to catch “The Spanish Teacher” Glee episode on Tuesday night, February 7th, at 8/7 Central on FOX!
Tonight’s brand-new episode of “House” won’t look like an ordinary episode of “House.” It won’t feel like an ordinary episode of “House,” either. And for at least one of the doctors at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, tonight’s episode can best be described as a real game-changer.
We’ve already seen the episode — it’s intense, it’s dramatic, and it’s shocking. Without spoiling anything, here’s what we can tell you: After things go horribly wrong during a patient’s treatment, Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) faces a disciplinary review, and the diagnostics team’s methods are called into question.
Fox All Access spoke with Jesse Spencer, who plays Dr. Chase on the show, and he’s excited to see the show “step outside the box” for what he feels is a truly special episode.
“The elephant in the room,” as Spencer put it, is a theme that’s been central to the show through all of its eight seasons, but has never been addressed as blatantly as it will in tonight’s episode: When it comes to solving medical mysteries, do the ends justify the means?
Watch the all-new episode of “House,” tonight at 8/7c on Fox.
The Voice, the reality musical talent series, was a surprise hit last season on NBC. Like so many other reality shows, the series is looking for the next great singer. The shows judging panel features R&B hit singer Cee-Loo Green, country star Blake Shelton, and pop stars Adam Levine (lead singer of Maroon 5) and Christina Aguilera, all of whom had great chemistry together.

I’ll readily admit to being an Anglophile; I fell in love with all things British after my first visit to London in 1995. I especially love their music, and I’ll often get my fix by going online to listen to the BBC’s streaming radio broadcasts. That’s how I first heard about Ed Sheeran — when a BBC Radio 1 DJ chose his song, “The A Team,” as her “song of the week.” Sweetly melodic, but with a heart-wrenchingly haunting lyric, it was one of those songs that won me over the first time I heard it.
So I was thrilled to find out that Ed’s been picked up by a record label here in the States, and even more excited to find out we’d get a chance to bring him into the Fox All Access studios and see his first headlining gig at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood..
He didn’t disappoint at either venue.
In the studio, he played three songs for us, just his guitar and voice. He showed off his softer side with “The A Team” and “Lego House” (you’ll find his acoustic version of “The A Team” below), and showed off his hip-hop side on “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” which shows off his ability to spit rhymes at nearly hypersonic speed.
Needless to say, we were impressed. And when Chris Leary sat down to talk with him, we discovered a young man whose soul is much older than his 20 years. He’s thoughtful and grounded, yet still possesses that wickedly dry British sense of humor.
Before I got to the Hotel Cafe for his show, I was expecting the typical showcase crowd — curious-but-jaded industry types, wondering if they’re indeed witnessing the much-hyped “next big thing.” But when I arrived, I was shocked to see that Ed’s already picked up a fervently devoted fan base. (Surprisingly enough, I learned that a lot of the young fans found out about Ed because of “Harry Potter” actor Rupert Grint’s appearance in the official “Lego House” video.)
Then the show started, and over the course of the next 90 minutes or so, he had the audience mesmerized with his mix of acoustic numbers and uptempo songs augmented by intricately built beat-boxing loops. And though he’s built up his stage act over the course of hundreds of shows (in one year alone, he played more than 300 gigs), he wasn’t afraid to change things up. When he heard some young women singing harmony during “Lego House,” he spontaneously invited them up on stage to help him finish the song. (Afterward, one of the women, who’d flown in from Chicago earlier in the day for the show, simply said, “I can die now.”)
Soon, we’ll be posting Chris Leary’s interview with Ed Sheeran, along with more of his music. For now, though, enjoy his acoustic version of his first single, “The A Team.”
Through the first three seasons of “Fringe,” Jasika Nicole’s character, Agent Astrid Farnsworth, has spent much of her time on the periphery, assisting in the lab and having her name mispronounced a myriad of ways by Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble).
On tomorrow night’s episode of “Fringe,” however, she takes center-stage, as the Astrids from the two universes come face to face for the first time.
We spoke with Nicole this morning, and she told us about the circumstances that bring the two Astrids together. (Click on the media player to hear Jasika Nicole)
Since this is the first time the two Astrids are meeting, it’s also the first time Nicole has had to play a scene with herself. So we had to ask: Was this the best actress she’d ever worked with? (Click on the media player to hear Jasika Nicole)
Want to find out more? Check out this special “Astrid-centric” “Fringe” feature, then watch the all-new “Making Angels” episode of “Fringe,” Friday night at 9/8c on Fox.
A few months ago, Donald Trump made it clear that he was not going to launch a 2012 Presidential campaign. However, having become increasingly frustrated with the negative campaigning in the Republican primaries, he may be reconsidering; his advisers have told the media he’s keeping his options open for a potential third-party run for the White House. While some claim that any Oval Office aspirations by Trump are just a publicity stunt, there’s no denying the fact that he certainly has the money — if not the political equity — to launch a campaign.
Comedian/radio talk host Adam Carolla will be competing on the new season of Trump’s show, “Celebrity Apprentice.” He admits he doesn’t know much about Trump’s politics, but Carolla has no doubt that Trump’s tireless work ethic would be a great asset if he were to be elected President.
Carolla isn’t the only celebrity who thinks Trump could handle the gig — you may recall that last year, actor (and “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant) Gary Busey told us he thought Trump would make a great president.
