SNL & Lorne Michaels Face Pressure To Hire Latina Writers & Actresses!

| Filed under: TV NewsSaturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live may have taken steps this past year towards expanding its diversity, but some believe the late night variety show hasn't gone far enough.

Latina women have started calling for SNL to add some Latina writers and actors, and we think that's a great idea!

The backlash came after a sketch that involved Cecily Strong (who is not Latina) playing a woman named Marisol who was essentially a mail…well, email-ordered girlfriend.

Since then, many have used the hashtag #StillNoLatinas to voice their concerns!

We hope SNL handles this criticism the same way they listened the campaign to finally add a black female actress to the show, and that they add a new Latina writer or actress, or ideally both!

Please, oh please, let this happen!

From its start on Broadway, Spring Awakening has captured the hearts on many and now, composer and recording artist, Duncan Sheik is trying to get it made into a movie with his partner in crime, Steven Sater!

In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Duncan talked about his upcoming projects and revealed he's in the process of getting Spring Awakening made into a movie.

He revealed:

We’re trying to get the Spring Awakening movie made this year. It’s in process, and we have a fancy director (McG) and a fancy producer (Playtone, Tom Hanks’ company) involved. So fingers crossed we’ll be diving into it.

And with a musical turned movie almost always comes new music, right??

Duncan talks about writing a new song for the Broadway musical turned movie:

You always have to write a new song. People say all kinds of stuff about this: "Oh, we really needed this moment of emotion for the character to come alive." But the real truth always is that it’s the only way you’re eligible for an Academy Award, is to have a new song.

(So) we’ve written the song. I can’t wait to do it - I hope i get to do it, to record it.

Casting has yet to be announced, but we've got two names for you, Duncan.

Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff.

These two stars got their start on Broadway with that very play! They would certainly come full circle if they were casted as the leads of Spring Awakening!

Just how amazing would that be?!

We've had Criminal on repeat for over fifteen years, but we never realized Fiona Apple was actually a law breaker until now!

The iconic songstress did something most unexpected recently, she took her talents to a French television show! Even more shocking? The show, H-Man, is about superheroes!!!! Wackier than that?! Fiona plays a fabulous super-villain!

It's true! The 36-year-old singer actress plays a flora-loving fiend! She an eco-terrorist with a Poison Ivy-eque control over plants and stuff!

Ch-ch-check out her guest spot in the vid (above)!

Whoa! Are we Sleep to Dream-ing or did that madness really happen?

We have no idea what any of the characters were saying, but we love it!

Unfortunately for all of humankind, Amy Winehouse will not be projected anytime soon, nor walk among us again in three dimensions (kinda).

Apparently, there was a recent tabloid report that a 3D hologram of Amy was in the works that would be accompanied with a full orchestra.

Her dad, Mitch Winehouse, took to Twitter to dispel those rumors:

Well, looks like we'll just have to remember with fondness the time Tupac was a hologram at Coachella 2012, and leave it at that.

We still miss you, Amy!

| Filed under: The SituationReality TV

the situation reality show others who should return

Say hellooooo once again to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino!!!

Even though he's been gone from your boob tube for some time, he's about to make his grand return…and he's bringing his family with him!

We knew The Situation was working on a reality TV show project, and now it has landed on TV Guide Network.

The Sorrentinos follows his family as they, well, get through life together. And if we've learned anything from his days on Jersey Shore, we know gym, tanning, and laundry will be involved. LOLz!

You can ch-ch-check out the preview (below), but that's not all!

This little reality TV return got us thinking about other former stars who should make a reality TV comeback.

Check out five former stars who should follow in his footsteps with new shows of their own…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

camille grammer return

Camille Grammer: The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is just too fab to leave us this soon! We've seen her marriage fall apart, were torn up over her cancer battle, and heard the details about her brutal relationship with her most recent ex, but this woman keeps on fighting! And we want to see that! Plus, we've been missing her AH-Mazing side eyes!

courtney robertson return

Courtney Robertson: We wonder what this former Bachelor star is up to. After winning Benjamin Flajnik's heart (and making enemies with all the ladies) during season 16, we heard she was writing a tell-all book. And what goes better with a tell-all then a reality TV show?? If you watched the Bachelor, you know this girl would bring some entertainment during her one-on-one interviews!

will kirby return

Dr. Will Kirby: He took the Big Brother house by storm during the second season, and no one has forgotten him since. Later, he started dating another reality star, For Love & Money star Erin Brodie! And get this, they now have TWO children. Could you imagine a reality show about Dr. Will's home life?? Perfection!

heather chadwell return

Heather Chadwell: Don't tell us you don't remember Heather Chadwell from Rock of Love! She showed her boobies to Bret Michaels within minutes of meeting him. You're right, we'll narrow that down. She looked totally '80s the whole season. You're right, we'll narrow that down. She got his name tattooed on her neck! You know all those things we just mentioned basically make her a reality TV dream. We'd love to see men fighting over her on an all new show!

ryan lochte return

Ryan Lochte: Ok, so his first attempt at a reality TV show was a bit of a fail. But maybe that's because he kept his clothes on so much! Perhaps the viewers would be more inclined to tune in if the show was called Ryan Lochte: A Look Into His Shirtless Life.

And HERE is the preview for The Situation's new show:
