Prince has "crazy comic instincts."

The "Purple Rain" hitmaker has filmed a guest role in New Girl alongside Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson - who plays Jess and Nick - and impressed everyone working on the show with his "incredible" performance. "He's genuinely funny. He's got a very quiet, wry sense of humor but he kills. There's a moment in the episode where he's sitting in between Zooey and Jake on a bench. And it's a silent beef and he's just looking between them trying to figure them out. And it's hilarious. He has crazy comic instincts," executive producer Dave Finkel said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FX, Gossip, Rumors,

Charlie Sheen and Selma BlairSelma Blair has reportedly threatened Charlie Sheen with a retaliation lawsuit.

The pair were co-stars on Anger Management before the 41-year-old actress was kicked off the show - and it is said she will take legal action if she isn't paid the $1.2 million she believes she is owed. According to reports on TMZ, Selma is demanding the payout to cover the episodes she would have made is she hadn't have been fired fro the show.

It has been said she was kicked off the sitcom after she complained about the Two and a Half Men star, claiming the crew had to wait while he was in his trailer learning lines. However, an insider defended Charlie's actions because - whereas Selma was in less than half of the scenes for each episode - he would have to learn over 44 pages of dialogue. "When you work 12 hours a day and have 3 girlfriends at home, it's hard to memorize all the lines for tomorrow," the insider said.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie CibrianLeAnn Rimes wants to star in a sitcom. The 30-year-old singer is reportedly shopping around a comedy series based on her real life and hopes to star in the show alongside her actor husband of two years Eddie Cibrian, 39.

"[They] have been shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together. They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on Curb Your Enthusiasm," a source said.

The insider also revealed that the couple plan to include a "crazy ex-wife" in the show that will be inspired by Eddie's ex-wife Brandi Glanville, 40, who has had numerous public spats with LeAnn.

But LeAnn and Eddie have decided not to feature his sons with Brandi, Mason, nine, and Jake, six, on the show. "Mason and Jake are not involved. If kids end up being on it, they would be played by actors -- not Eddie's children," the insider added.

Emily Deschanel Wants New Girl Cameo with Sister Zooey

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FOX, Gossip,

Emily and Zooey DeschanelEmily Deschanel wants to star with her sister Zooey in New Girl. The Bones actress has revealed she is planning to make a cameo appearance in her sibling's hit sitcom about hapless 20-something Jess Day, and would jump at the chance to join her on set as soon as she has some time off.

"Zooey played my cousin on an episode of Bones a couple of seasons ago and we've talked about me coming in to do New Girl. We shoot on the same lot, so if we weren't so busy it might be really easy to swing on by and play a part. It's hard to get a few hours off, let alone a couple of days to do her show. I watch every episode as soon as I can when I'm not working," she said.

Because the pair play polar opposite characters in their respective shows - Emily plays serious-minded forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennen - people assume they are different in real life, but the 36-year-old star thinks they share the same core values from growing up in the same family.

Kim Kardashian Wants a Sitcom

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Gossip,

Kim KardashianIt looks like Britney Spears isn't the only one with dreams of her own sitcom - Kim Kardashian wants in on the comedy business, too.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star enjoyed filming scenes as a marriage counselor in forthcoming movie Temptation and is now keen to branch out further away from reality TV.

"My character is pretty light throughout the film, so it's fun. It was interesting to work with people that I've liked for so long, and just to work with Tyler Perry was amazing and such a good experience. I definitely do see myself branching off and maybe doing a sitcom or something other than reality. I've been in talks [but it] is nothing serious yet," she said.

Despite appearing in several reality TV shows with her family, Kim is keen to keep her baby off the television and will do everything she can to keep the child out of the public eye, though she knows it won't be easy: "When you go places, there are paparazzi and cameras; you can only do so much to avoid it. But I can do what I can to just not have my child on TV."

Britney SpearsBritney Spears wants to secure more TV work.

The 31-year-old "Till The World Ends" singer - whose contract with The X Factor reportedly won't be renewed - is said to have instructed her management team to find her a recurring role on a sitcom.

"Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph, is reading television scripts that the singer could accept. Britney's dad, Jamie feels that having his daughter on a sitcom would be a good fit for her. Britney needs to be kept busy, and a structured environment such as a television sitcom would be a natural fit for her. There is also a possibility that Britney could get her own television sitcom, but that appears to be more of a long shot. She actually has very natural comedic talents and is very funny, in an airhead sort of way," a source close to the singer said.

Sources previously revealed that the blonde beauty would not be returning to The X Factor after recently completing her one-year contract as a judge alongside Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid.
