GLAAD Media Awards honor 'Glee,' 'Modern Family'

The folks at "Glee" and "Modern Family" better make some room on their mantels. Both Emmy-winning shows have been named Outstanding Comedy Series by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

"Glee" stars Chris Colfer and Mike O'Malley—who play openly gay student Kurt Hummel and his dad, Burt—as well as "Modern Family" actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Ariel Winter were on hand Sunday to accept their honors at the 22nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.

(You can see Colfer and O'Malley's acceptance speech in the video above, and Ferguson, Bowen and Winter accept "Modern Family's" award in the video after the jump.)

First suspects surface on 'The Killing'

First suspects surface on 'The Killing'

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, April 10 episode of AMC’s “The Killing.”]

This week’s episode delivered our first real suspects in the death of Rosie Larsen, and although they're unlikable I’m saying it now – they didn’t do it. We’re still waist deep in potential killers here, people. There’s so much shade surrounding the characters on this show, no wonder Seattle rarely sees the sun.

As the detectives continued their investigation of the crime scene in a portion of the Fort Washington High School basement known as “the Cage,” Linden discovered a peephole that provided a choice view of the scene from the dank, dingy janitor's closet.

You know, I’d like to think that somewhere out there a group of school janitors enjoys a comfortable, brightly lit lounge with a coffee maker, posters of kittens on the wall and some mellow piped-in adult contemporary. Janitors of the world, you deserve better! That is, unless you have a criminal record that's gone undetected by your place of employment, much like our first lead in the case, school janitor Lyndon Johnson Rosales.

Liam Neeson cut from 'The Hangover Part II'

Liam Neeson cut from 'The Hangover Part II'

He replaced Mel Gibson in "The Hangover Part II," and now Liam Neeson has been ousted from the upcoming comedy.

Variety reports that Neeson's cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist has been cut, and actor/director Nick Cassavetes has taken over the role.

Call it a case of bad timing. According to director Todd Phillips, the scene immediately following Neeson's cameo was snipped from the film, which meant that Neeson's scene had to be re-shot to help fill in the gaps and move the story forward. Unfortunately, Neeson was no longer available because he was in London shooting the sequel to "Clash of the Titans."

Tom Cruise trains with Axl Rose's vocal coach

Expect to see Tom Cruise wailing his way through "Rock of Ages." The actor is prepping for his role as aging, bad boy rocker Stacee Jaxx by training with Axl Rose's vocal coach.

"He's been studying with — seriously — Axl Rose's voice teacher like five hours a day," director Adam Shankman tells TheWrap. "The prognosis is more than excellent."

In fact, Shankman attended Cruise's first session and was so wowed by what he heard that the men actually high-fived. FULL POST
