Sara Gilbert discusses being out on ‘The Talk’

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: “Roseanne” alum Sara Gilbert has played many different characters as an actress. But in her new CBS daytime show “The Talk,” she’ll be herself – something that seems a little daunting to the actress who is one of six co-hosts on the show as well as executive producer.
At the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Wednesday, Gilbert was asked if she thought it would be easier to succeed as a lesbian in daytime television thanks to the road paved by Ellen DeGeneres.
“I don’t know,” she said. “I don’t really ever think of things as out or in. I just think I am who I am and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them share when it seems right.”
Julie Chen, one of the other hosts who seems to be the panel’s moderator, interjected: “You probably don’t know the answer to that right now. Because once we get on the air, you’re probably going to see how much press there is about ‘Sara Gilbert’ is a lesbian.’ And then you probably can answer that a little more accurately I would think. It’s a whole new journey.”
One reporter tried to gauge just how comfortable Gilbert is about her personal life since in the initial press release announcing the show, the husbands of Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remni and Marissa Jaret Winokur were all mentioned but Gilbert’s partner Allison Adler was not.
“That came from me,” she said. “CBS would have written whatever I wanted. I’ve been acting my whole life, and I’ve never really discussed my personal life. This is a talk show. so obviously I’m going to be discussing my life more and I felt that the first place that I wanted to do it wasn’t in a CBS press release. It just seemed impersonal, and I felt like I’d rather come in person and talk to you about all that stuff here [at press tour].”

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 at Comic-Con

By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: CBS News brings us a little bit of the Hogwarts magic from Comic-Con 2010 with a short video on “The Making of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4″ video game, which was released a few weeks ago. The video game has hovered in the #2 spot in sales since its release, and all reviews I’ve heard from friends who’ve played it is that it’s one of the best games out there, and certainly the best in LEGO games. I will be testing this theory out myself this weekend, but until then, here’s the video from CBS’ YouTube page:

Also, ComingSoon.net has posted photos of some of the LEGO Harry Potter sets, including Hogwarts Castle, Hagrid’s Hut, The Burrow and the Quidditch Pitch.

‘Six Feet Under’s’ Freddy Rodriguez to join ‘Chaos?’

HollywoodNews.com: Chaos reigns.
The Brett Ratner produced CBS series about CIA agents is on again after nearly being killed by corporate network warfare.
Sources tell me that star Freddy Rodriguez, who was so good in “Six Feet Under” and the movie “Bobby,” is all set to play the lead. The rest of the cast is secure as well, despite contrary reports.
CBS and 20th Century Fox Television will make “Chaos” as a joint venture for CBS TV after weeks of playing tug of war with Ratner and the show’s creator.
At the center of their disagreements was money, of course, and location. CBS wanted to shoot “Chaos” in Dallas, where Ratner made “Prison Break.” The only problem is, “Chaos” needs an international feel, with good locations and sets. Now that Ratner and co. have won the right to do the show properly, it will be returned to Hollywood.

CBS stated, “We hoped Melina would return to CSI: NY for another season, but we respect her decision to move on.

Vanessa Hudgens’ film sidesteps b.f. Zac Efron’s on the summer schedule

Hollywoodnews.com: Vanessa Hudgens is getting out of the way of her boyfriend, Zac Efron.
More specifically, CBS Films is re-scheduling her romantic fantasy film “Beastly” until March 18. CBS’s move was triggered by Universal bowing Efron’s “Charlie St. Cloud” on July 30, the original date for “Beastly” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Hudgens and Efron both starred in Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise.
Per the Hollywood Reporter:
“Beastly” involves an egotistical young man (played by Alex Pettyfer) who is cast under a dark spell and has a year to find a young woman to love. “St. Cloud” revolves around a young man torn between a lasting bond with his dead brother and feelings for the girl he loves.

CBS Films only remaining pic for 2010 is the Dwayne Johnson-Billy Bob Thorton action thriller “Faster” in November. The fledgling label hopes to acquire more films for 2011 since it has nothing in production currently.
To date, CBS has released the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy “The Back-up Plan” which has made $36.8 million domestically and the Harrison Ford drama “Extraordinary Measures” which grossed $12.1 million stateside.
