Ex 'Saturday Night Live' star slams 'Glee' gay kiss

To hear more from Victoria Jackson, tune in to "Showbiz Tonight" today at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

"Glee" fans may have been cheering when Kurt and Blaine finally kissed last week, but former "Saturday Night Live" star Victoria Jackson? Not so much.

The quirky comic has slammed the same-sex smooch in her column on the conservative website WorldNetDaily.com.

"Did you see 'Glee' this week? Sickening!" writes Jackson, who appeared on "SNL" from 1986-1992. The episode also featured Kathy Griffin as a religious "Sarah Palin type" and Loretta Devine as a stripper turned nun.

Cher to record country album

When Cher made a surprise appearance at the 2010 Country Music Awards, the audience was a bit confused. “My being present here tonight is probably not as strange as it may seem,” Cher said. “I have a few country creds.”

It’s making more sense now – music producer Mark Bright has confirmed Cher will be recording a country album in the near future. Bright is known for his work with stars Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Reba McEntire.

“Cher knows that her listeners also listen to country music, so she felt it was a natural thing to develop a country music relationship,” Bright told Silk and Denim Music.

A bittersweet end to 'Big Love'

[Spoiler warning: Do not read if you haven't seen the final episode of "Big Love."]

Okay, I was definitely not prepared for that.

"Big Love" came to an end after five seasons on Sunday, and just when you thought most of the loose ends were being tied up in a nice little bow, there was one more shocker left.

It was a smart move for the producers to wrap up the Albert Grant story arc last week, allowing the focus to be on the Henricksons for the entirety of the last episode.

'Tupac' movie holding online auditions

If you think you've got what it takes to portray slain rapper Tupac Shakur in a movie, now's your chance.

As Marquee previously reported, a biopic about Shakur, who was shot to death in 1996, is currently in the works and is slated to begin shooting this spring. Now producers are holding an online open casting call to find an actor to portray the music icon, reports the L.A. Times.

To audition, aspiring actors must visit InSearchOfTupac.skeetv.com and upload a five-minute video of themselves reciting the provided monologue from one of Shakur's courtroom appearances and performing a 60-second rap of one of Shakur's songs. Auditions began on March 18 and end April 30.

Jodie Foster didn't think Kristen Stewart would act

Kristen Stewart is one of the most in-demand young actresses in Hollywood, but her former co-star, Jodie Foster, swears she didn't see it coming.

"I just love Kristen Stewart, but I didn't think she'd choose to be an actress," Foster, who played Stewart's mother in the 2002 thriller "Panic Room," tells the Hollywood Reporter. "I said to her mom, 'She doesn't want that, right?' And she's like, ‘Well, yes, she kind of does.'"

Foster believed the "Twilight" star would opt out of show business because she seemed so reserved.

"She's very much like me: She's not comfortable in life being a big externally emotional person, beating her chest, crying every five minutes," says "The Beaver" director. "I felt she was such an intelligent technician, so interested in camera – I thought that would translate to other things.”
