'Lost' finale gets Emmy Awards exception

If you haven't heard, "Lost" is coming to an end after six seasons this Sunday, May 23 at 9 p.m. E.T. It's been a trending topic on social networking sites for days and is looking to be one of the most-watched finales of all time. You probably know that it's being preceded by a special pre-show and being followed by a post-show where the producers will show alternate endings to the finale. And if you care about all that you probably want to know more...

Here's a few more tidbits for you:

The "Lost" finale has been given an exception from the TV academy's board of governors, which makes it eligible for Emmy Awards despite its 2.5 hour running time.

The show won an Emmy for Outstanding Drama in 2005. Since it's debut in 2004 it has also won several individual Emmy awards and been nominated for many more.

The finale will be simulcast around the globe.

In an effort to keep the illegal downloads to a minimum, ABC is being telecast simultaneously in Europe and will be available in 59 countries around the world within 48 hours of the show's U.S. broadcast.

Casting Chronicles: James Franco tries to land every role possible

James Franco, clearly vying for the hardest-working-man in show business title, has signed on to two new projects this week, on top of the news of his return to "General Hospital."

Franco is set to star in a "Hangover"-esque comedy picked up by Summit Entertainment called "Ricky Stanicky," a movie about three friends who've spent the majority of their lives blaming everything that happens on a fictional character named (obviously) Ricky Stanicky, and they end up having to hire an actor (Franco) when their wives demand to meet him. He’ll also play the scientist in the primate prequel, “Rise of the Apes."

Next we’ll be hearing about his starring role in “Human Centipede 2: Even more grossness.”

Mark Salling is California cool in GQ

Mark SallingIn this edition of “actors who look good in surfwear,” we turn our attention to "Glee’s" resident bad boy who occasionally shows off his softer side, Mark Salling, known to the Gleeks as Puck.

Salling’s Puck is “prime time cougar bait,” explained GQ magazine, the men’s publication that convinced the 27-year-old actor/singer to strip down to his board shorts. “Think Emilio Estevez in ‘The Breakfast Club,’ but with a lovely tenor.”

Surprisingly though, Salling said that since he shaved his character’s trademark Mohawk, he actually doesn’t get recognized that often, despite the show’s mega-popularity status.

Check out this slideshow for more photos of the breakout star.
