We haven’t seen the end of the Glee cast’s family members just yet. It has been confirmed that Aisha Tyler, co-host on The Talk on CBS, has been hired to play someone’s mother. Can you figure out who it is?

According to TVline.com, Aisha Tyler will be playing Jake Puckerman’s mother. In case you missed it this season, Jake is actually Noah Puckerman’s younger half-brother. These two have the same dad but a different mother.

According to the same report, Aisha Tyler is currently filming her scenes for Glee but details about what exactly she will be filming have been mum. There’s no word if she will have any run-ins with Noah’s mother who has appeared on the show a handful of times and is played by actress Gina Hecht.

What storyline would you like to see Jake’s mom be a part of? We think that Aisha Tyler is the perfect fit for Jake’s mom as they both look pretty similar. With Jake being the resident bad boy on Glee, now we wonder if his mother’s storyline will play into why exactly he’s the way he is.

We do know that Glee has been filming the Christmas episode as of last week, so there is still a chance we may see Aisha Tyler as Jake’s mom sometime this year.

What are your thoughts about Aisha Tyler being cast as Jake’s mom? Does it fit?

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

Netflix adapting ‘Anne of Green Gables’ for new TV series with additional themes

Anne Shirley is returning to our screens!

2:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.

Not only is J.K. Rowling a brilliant writer, but she’s also a talented sketch artist!

Pottermore recently released a few never-before-seen Harry Potter sketches by J.K. Rowling on their website. The drawings arrived without fanfare — they were quietly added to a few sections sometime in recent weeks.

The three brand new Harry Potter sketches by J.K. Rowling depict Quidditch, Peeves causing trouble, and Snape teaching a Potions class.

The Quidditch sketch is particularly interesting, because Rowling seems to be explaining the game in a single sketch. As you can see, the drawing labels each player and what each of them is up to during the game:

In the second sketch, Peeves appears to be holding a bunch of walking canes as Professor McGonagall, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and a couple of other students gawk at him:

In the third, Professor Snape oversees a Potions class:

But that’s not all! A few previously-released J.K. Rowling sketches have also appeared on Pottermore in recent weeks. These depict Harry at Privet Drive, the Weasleys, Harry in front of the Mirror of Erised, and Dumbledore, McGonagall, and Hagrid meeting Baby Harry.

As far as we know, it’s the first time any of these are getting an official digital release (They’ve previously appeared in videos and other promotional pieces):

Which Harry Potter sketch by J.K. Rowling is your favorite?

We wonder if any of these will be appearing in the new, Encyclopedia-like Harry Potter eBooks in a couple of weeks?

Thanks to the sharp eyes at The Rowling Library for the tip!
