By Aniek • Comments Off on Lauren & Alexis Cover EW” Reboot Is Like a “Family Reunion”Articles / Interviews, Gilmore Girls

The “Gilmore Girls” are back in Stars Hollow, and they’re loving every minute of it!

Lauren Graham admitted that shooting the highly-anticipated Netflix reboot has given her a second chance to appreciate a once in a lifetime opportunity.

“You know how you finish college and you’re a few years older and you’re like, ‘I wish I could go do this now ’cause I would appreciate it so much more and understand it and get more out of it’? That’s the opportunity I have with this, and I appreciate every day that I’m here,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s cover story.

“It’s strange. But very lovely. Like a family reunion, in a sense. That weird family that meets once a year,” the show’s creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, added.

While the “Parenthood” star couldn’t help but gush about being back on set with her TV family, some of her costars were worried about how the story would pick back up.

Alexis Bledel, who play’s Graham’s on-screen daughter, told the mag that her question was “What would the story be?”

“I struggled with it at first,” Scott Patterson (Luke Danes) recently said on “TODAY.” “I remember looking at our dialogue coach and going, ‘I don’t know if I can pull it off. But when I walked in the diner the first time, everything felt better. It was like no time had gone by.” While Melissa McCarthy has said she won’t be reprising her role as the beloved Sookie, Palladino said the door is still open.

“There’s nothing malicious going on,” she declared. “We’ve just put it out into the universe; we’re here until May 10. I know what the scene is. I’ll pre-light it for her. She can drive up, run in, shoot it, and run out. I can get her in and out in two hours.”

Graham also talked about the mysterious “four final words” Sherman-Palladino had said would’ve ended the original series, had she worked on its last season. (She left the show after season 6.)

“Amy didn’t realize that I didn’t know them, so we hadn’t really talked about it,” Lauren revealed. “For some reason, my first question was, ‘Who says them?’ Because I assumed it was one character, when it’s two. It’s not as resolved as I thought they would be. I thought they would be ‘Honey, I’m home!’ or something like ‘Goodbye, small town!’ So I was like, ‘Oh, really?'”

By Aniek • Comments Off on Lauren Graham Reacts To Melissa McCarthy’s Return To ‘Gilmore Girls’ By Thanking Her Lucky Stars HollowGilmore Girls

The show may have been called Gilmore Girls, but there was another relationship that came a close second to the mother-daughter duo in the beloved series. That would be BFFs Lorelai and Sookie, so when news broke in January that Netflix would revive the show in a limited release, all eyes were on Melissa McCarthy as to whether she would reprise her role as the clumsy yet lovable chef. Thursday put all worries to rest though, when the comedian confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she’ll be a part of the packed reunion, and the happy news brought out the biggest reaction of all: Lauren Graham.

“Yay, Sookie! This makes me so so happy,” Graham, who plays Lorelai, cheered on Twitter. “Let’s all go see @TheBossFilm this weekend to celebrate.”

Since Gilmore Girls, McCarthy has gone on to dominate box offices in funny films like The Heat and Bridesmaids. Her newest, The Boss, is set to be released Friday, the same day McCarthy’s Ellen episode will air.

Which is what makes Graham’s tweet all the more sweet. What better way to celebrate the return of your on-screen best friend than to watch her newest movie in real life? Sookie St. James is back y’all, and we can’t wait.

“It’s a lifestyle.” “It’s a religion.” That’s Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) talking about The Donna Reed Show back in season 1 of Gilmore Girls. But it may as well apply to Gilmore fans today. And if you’re one of those people who’s been not-exactly-patiently waiting for nearly nine years to revisit Stars Hollow, set your calendar for later this year. The Connecticut crew is back together shooting four 90-minute Gilmore Girls movies for Netflix, and EW has your exclusive first look.

On the Warner Bros. soundstage one late February morning, it was as if not much had changed since Rory and Lorelai had that last cup of coffee over at Luke’s. Dinner at Casa Gilmore. A strong drink in hand. And a cast relieved to have been reunited by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who created the beloved series back in 2000.

By Aniek • Comments Off on Peter Krause Dishes on Watching Girlfriend Lauren Graham on TVCo-Stars, News

Peter Krause says his role in the new Shonda Rhimes-led ABC drama, “The Catch,” is one completely different from his famous role as Adam Braverman on “Parenthood.”

“This is not necessarily wholesome entertainment to watch with your kids,” Krause said today on “Good Morning America.” “I spent a lot more time with my clothes off than I thought I would, but I wanted to do something very different from ‘Parenthood’ and this certainly is.”

Krause stars in “The Catch” as Ben, an elite con man up against Los Angeles’ top private investigator, who just happens to be his fiancee.

“It’s sort of an epic romance in the center of the show,” Krause said. “Really, it’s two shows smashed together. You’ve got the investigative unit [and] then you’ve got the group of con artists and they overlap because of the relationship between Alice and Ben.”

Off-screen, Krause, the father of a 14-year-old son, is the longtime partner of his “Parenthood” co-star Lauren Graham. Krause said he used the flight from Los Angeles to New York City this week to catch up on Graham’s other hit TV show, “Gilmore Girls.”

“We keep things pretty private [but] I will say that on my flight here from L.A. I was happy to see on DirectTV that they were playing ‘Gilmore Girls,’ so I actually sat on the plane, watching ‘Gilmore Girls’ on my way,” Krause said. “People are crazy for that show.”

“The Catch” premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on ABC

By Aniek • Comments Off on Lauren Graham’s two TV daughters will unite on ‘Gilmore Girls’ revivalGilmore Girls, News

The “Gilmore Girls” revival series is set to rock TV sets after a long-long break and the makers are putting in all their efforts to bring back the original star cast of this hit show from the 2000s. After months of speculations, it has been confirmed that Mae Whitman will appear on the show for a cameo. With this update, both the daughters of the lead actress, Lauren Graham, who essayed Lorelai Gilmore in “Gilmore Girls” are set to set to appear in the new series.

While it was previously announced that Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) has been roped in to play the role of Lorelai’s daughter, it is now said that Mae Whitman will team up again with Graham for “Gilmore Girls.” Interestingly, Whitman played the role of Amber Holt in “Parenthood” for six seasons. Could it be a coincidence that both of Graham’s on-screen daughters from separate shows are now coming together for this series?

It has been reported by TV Line that Whitman will join “Gilmore Girls” for a brief cameo . The 27-year-old actress has worked in some of the most loved TV series including “Parenthood” and “Arrested Development” and has even starred in Hollywood flicks like “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” and “The Perks of Being A Wallflower”.

The Gilmore Girls are getting back together on Netflix, but what about Lauren Graham’s other TV family: the Braverman clan? There’s no indication Parenthood is on its way back (though showrunner Jason Katims has said he’s open to the idea of a revival). That’s not enough to stop three of its stars — Graham, Mae Whitman, and Peter Krause — from getting together in an unofficial capacity.

Graham and Krause — siblings on the show, coupled in real life — attended the opening of Whitman’s Los Angeles play, The Mystery of Love and Sex over the weekend.

Back to Stars Hollow! The Gilmore Girls’ Netflix revival is officially underway, with actor Yanic Truesdale posting a telling photo to his Twitter account on Friday, February 5.

“First day back at the Inn with my old boss,” he captioned s sweet reunion picture with costar Lauren Graham. “Fun times! #GilmoreGirlsRevival #WarnerBros.” In the cute snap, Truesdale, 45, is wearing his trademark suit and tie, reprising his role as hotel clerk Michel Gerard. Graham, 48, looks all dolled up in the photo as titular character Lorelai Gilmore. The series, which ran on The WB and later The CW between 2000 and 2007, has been generating plenty of buzz online as the creators drop hints about the much-anticipated comeback. On Thursday, February 4, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Matt Czuchry, who played Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel)’s boyfriend Logan Huntzberger, will return for the Netflix revival. In addition to Bledel, Graham, Czuchry and Truesdale, other returning players include Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Keiko Agena (Lane) and Sean Gunn (Kirk).

No word yet on whether Jared Padalecki (Dean) or Milo Ventimiglia (Jess) will return.

By Aniek • Comments Off on Lauren: Gilmore Girls Revival ‘It’s What I Hoped It Would Be’Gilmore Girls, News

Lauren Graham is out of breath. She just came from Friday’s table read for the Gilmore Girls revival’s debut installment, titled “Winter,” and she’s a ball of frenzied excitement and firing endorphins.

A similar scene has been playing out in the social media-verse in the hours since Netflix officially confirmed that Amy Sherman-Palladino’s beloved dramedy would be returning with all-new episodes.
Below, Graham takes me through the nostalgic whirlwind that has been the past 72 hours, before answering the $1 million question: Is the revival going to be worth the wait. (Short answer: Oh, hell yes.)

TVLINE | How was the table read?
Let me go back a day or two ago, when I walked onto the set for the first time. We had to do a camera test and… the house. [She gets choked up] It’s on a different stage but it’s… the house. Alexis [Bledel] and I walked onto the set together and — I feel super emotional about a lot of it and I’m afraid I’m going to start crying at every turn — but walking onto that set really felt like something. It felt like a lot of time had passed and it felt like we were just there. It felt amazing.

TVLINE | I can only imagine.
And then, today, to be in that room with everybody [for the table read]. It was just really emotional. I don’t know what I’m allowed to say. [Laughs] There’s a line [in the script] about how time has passed and how that feels… and hanging over all of it is the absence of Ed [Herrmann, who played Gilmore patriarch Richard], which, obviously the [revival] addresses. But that’s where we’re all starting from, and it feels so real. It’s hard to be here without him. You notice so many friendly faces and then a few that are missing. But more than anything, we just can’t believe it. All of the things that had to happen for this to happen.

TVLINE | Netflix had to happen!
Netflix had to be invented. The fans had to want it badly enough that they didn’t stop asking. The outpouring of enthusiasm and joy is just completely humbling and so appreciated. I sound like some terrible self-help guru, but I feel so full of appreciation. And then I look at the schedule, which is, like, 40 days of night work, and I’m like, “Oh, yeah! I remember this job!” [Laughs] But I’m even excited to do that. And just so excited to do this material. Amy sent me the scripts and I gobbled them right up. It’s all the positive aspects of running into someone you used to go out with with none of the downside. [Laughs] It’s like, “Hey, old friend! I’m happy to see you.”

TVLINE | Have you read all four scripts?
I haven’t read the last one. We just got it. They’re looong. [Laughs] I read “Winter,” “Spring” and “Summer.”

TVLINE | Are fans going to be happy?
[Pauses, adopts a serious, thoughtful tone] For sure. For sure. I read a scene with Kelly [Bishop, who plays matriarch Emily] today… and it was just completely alive. We have some really nice story together. And there’s definitely some resolution that we didn’t get [at the end of the series’ original run].

TVLINE | Lauren, you have the final script in your hands. Which means you are in possession of the final four words…
[Calmly] Correct.

TVLINE | Did you skip ahead and read them?!
No. Amy already told them to me.

TVLINE | When?!
She didn’t realize that I didn’t know them. It’s actually been helpful not knowing them, because people ask me and I tell them I don’t know — because I really didn’t know. You know? So I asked her, “Who says them?” And she says, “Both of you.” That’s all I can say. It’s not, you know, in unison.

TVLINE | It’s an exchange.

TVLINE | Just hearing you talk about it gets me really excited.
Me too, Mike. I was completely satisfied with these scripts. It’s what I hoped it would be.

TVLINE | Twitter is exploding now that the news is official.
I haven’t seen anything because I’ve been in the table read and now I’m decorating my trailer here on set. I’m involved in throw pillows now — I’ll look at the Internet in a little bit. [Laughs] I’m really glad. It’s a treat to be at this point in my life and experience. I’m not like, “Oh, this probably happens all the time.” I have full appreciation and respect for what this moment is and I’m going to enjoy it as much as possible.

By Aniek • Comments Off on Lauren Graham Just Dropped A Clue About Those Final 4 ‘Gilmore Girls’ WordsGilmore Girls, News

“Gilmore Girls” fans just got a clue to a longstanding series mystery.

As devotees are likely well aware, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had an idea for how she’d like the show to end but left the show before its final season due to contract negotiation disagreements with the WB, meaning her ending never saw the light of day.

Specifically, Palladino has said she knows the series’ final four words, which – thanks to the upcoming “Gilmore Girls” Netflix reboot — will now finally air.

After the reboot at last became official earlier this week, series star Lauren Graham gave TVLine some details about the series, including a clue about those famously teased last words. Namely, that they are an exchange.

Amy already told them to me … She didn’t realize that I didn’t know them. It’s actually been helpful not knowing them, because people ask me and I tell them I don’t know — because I really didn’t know. You know? So I asked her, “Who says them?” And she says, “Both of you.” That’s all I can say. It’s not, you know, in unison.
Those of you who predicted one human being uttered all four of the final words — you are officially wrong!!!

Elsewhere in the interview, Graham opened up about returning to set — in particular, Lorelai and Rory’s house — for the first time since the original series went off the air in 2007.

“Alexis [Bledel] and I walked onto the set together and — I feel super emotional about a lot of it and I’m afraid I’m going to start crying at every turn — but walking onto that set really felt like something,” she said. “It felt like a lot of time had passed and it felt like we were just there. It felt amazing.”
