Jamie Dornan Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham wants Jamie Dornan to star on Girls.

The actress-and-director would have loved the Irish 50 Shades of Grey hunk to share some steamy sex scenes with the cast of her hit TV show, but fears his high profile casting as S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey has made him off-limits to get up close and personal with any of the characters. "Allison [Williams] wants Zac Efron. [We] requested Jamie Dornan, but the thing is, [we] requested him post-50 Shades of Grey casting. He's amazing, but I just feel it's too late," she said, speaking at a Girls premiere.

Harry StylesHarry Styles is considering appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians because of Kanye West.

The One Direction hunk had told girlfriend Kendall Jenner he had no interest in taking part in her family reality show but after her persuasive mother and manager Kris Jenner intervened and pointed out that her other daughter Kim Kardashian's famous fiance had been on the program, he is now reconsidering his stance.

"Kris has always seen her children's relationships as business opportunities, so she wanted him on the show. She insisted Kendall talk to him about it and has made great inroads, explaining what a great opportunity it could be for him. Kris pointed out how Kanye was reluctant to do it, which has certainly influenced Harry. He has a lot of respect for Kanye. Harry is now considering making a small appearance, perhaps just in one episode or even a trailer. After all, his band was created for The X Factor," a source said.

Chace CrawfordGleeks, prepare yourself for Nate Archibald Chace Crawford!

The former Gossip Girl star is rumored to be appearing in the popular Fox series for its milestone 100th episode. To no one's surprise, an insider says that he'll be playing Quinn Fabray's love interest: "[Chace] will play Dianna Agron's boyfriend, whom she brings back to Lima to meet her friends." Also not surprising (hey, we've never heard him - can you blame us!) is that "his character will not be singing -- as of now."

Considering the fact that he's no stranger to teen dramas, the 28-year-old star seems to have fit in on the Glee set among his friends: "Chace is excited to work with [series co-creator] Ryan Murphy and his longtime friend Matthew Morrison... He knows most of the other cast as well."

Glee's 100th episode will air in two parts on March 18 and March 25.

Kristin Cavallari and Audrina PatridgeIn a shocker to us all, Audrina Patridge has come out to say that her reality show The Hills was not always real.

"In the beginning, a lot of it was real. As it went on, it was very manipulated and guided and you're kinda put in these scenarios where you would show up and you didn't know what you were in for until you were there, and you wanted to run out but they lock the door on you," Patridge said. She went on to cite a specific example with her small sreen "nemesis" Kristin Cavallari:

"I actually had to leave early for another event, we were there for about three hours and they were like, 'You can't leave until you and Kristin get into a fight.' So I'm like, 'Oh my God, Kristin!' Kristin's like, 'Let's do it.' I'm like, 'OK, c'mon.' It was about Justin [Bobby] and we did it and we got to leave."

Lamar OdomLamar Odom is worried his alleged drug use and infidelities will be addressed on the new series of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The basketball player was left heartbroken after his wife Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce last month, and he's now concerned he will be portrayed in a negative light on her reality TV show as the break-down of their marriage will feature heavily on the program.

"The last thing Lamar needs in his life is to be portrayed as a schmuck. Khloe has assured him that it won't be bad, but how can it not be? The end of the marriage is going to be Khloe's main storyline next season and Lamar is afraid that his drug use and cheating will be addressed on the show. At the same time, he is trying to make a career comeback and he thinks this is going to hinder and hurt those efforts. He feels he's going to be used to get ratings for the Kardashians," a source said.

Seth MeyersHow will Seth Meyers run things on his Late Night show when he takes over the reigns from Jimmy Fallon?

For one thing, the former Weekend Update anchor hints that he'll be putting his own mark on the talk show: "I like that everyone before me has established this as a place to try things out. It's 12:35 at night. You can do crazy stuff."

Past co-workers and Saturday Night Live co-stars are offering up their speculations, too. "The defining thing with him is his intelligence and curiosity," SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels said.

Former Weekend Update co-anchor Amy Poehler points out that viewers can expect great interviews from Meyers: "He enjoys bringing the best out of people. Maybe it's his improv training, but he really knows how to make other people look good."

Candace Cameron BureWith talks of a Dawson's Creek and Friends reunions, why not throw in talk about a Full House one?

Candace Cameron Bure - who played DJ on the 90's sitcom - is voicing her desire to see the Tanner family back together on television. "Everyone talks about it and we've all talked about it. But who knows?... It'd be really fun. I've always said I'd be up for it if it happens," Bure said while appearing on Good Morning America.

The mother of three has previously mentioned wanting to see a Full House reunion, telling Us Weekly in November, "It's been thought about for a long time. A lot of things would have to work out for that to happen. I keep saying, never say never."

Lori Laughlin, who played Aunt Becky in the series, isn't as keen on the idea: "If it were a really good script and a great project but sometimes I think that it's better off to leave those TV shows as they were and not do reunion shows."

Jordan BelfortAlthough Martin Scorsese already jumped on the opportunity to cash in on Jordan Belfort's life story in this year's The Wolf of Wall Street film (which sees Leonardo DiCaprio portray Belfort), Electus
 CEO Chris Grant wants to develop a reality show that will star Belfort himself.

Grant was impressed by Belfort's memoirs - in which he details how he stole $110 million from investors throughout the 90's - and saw potential in him as a TV star: "I knew without even seeing a picture of him that he could be a talent
 both behind and in front of the camera."

The Electus CEO found Belfort in Manhattan Beach, California working as a motivational speaker and proposed that he participate in a series where he helps those who have "hit rock bottom" and seek redemption. Grant has said that others on the production team who have met Belfort described him as "TV gold," although a network has yet to pick it up.

Electus is the same studio which produces shows such as Fashion Star and Mob Wives.
