Exciting!

Christina Ricci will be replacing Alicia Silverstone in the Donald Margulies play Time Stands Still in September of this year.

Laury Linney also stars in the production that received a Tony nomination for Best Play last week. The play is currently on hiatus so Linney can film her new TV series The Big C.

As for Alicia, she had to give up the role of Mandy because of a scheduling conflict.

Good for Christina, though! We wonder how she'll do on the Broadway stage?

What do U think?

Gabby's A Gleek!

We would LOVE this! She'd bring the ferocity like no other!

Now that Gabourey Sidibe has tackled the Academy Awards, Saturday Night Live and is starring in a Showtime series with Laura Linney, she's looking for her next gig - and has set her sights on the show that every other celebrity on the planet wants a guest-starring role on: Glee!

She says:

“I love Glee. I live and breathe for Amber Riley — as well as her character Mercedes. But I wouldn’t want to have a sing off with Amber because she’s actually a friend of mine. She’s amazing and fun and it would be so cool to be on the show with her and hang out with the cast. I’m a huge fan.”

Oh, boo!! We think a Gabby/Amber sing-off would be AMAZEBALLS!

There would be CRAZY sass flying back and forth! We would pay to see that!

It's also Gabby's 27th birthday today! Happy happy to you, bb!

You know what girlfriend wants, Ryan Murphy! Make it happen!
