Could Allison Janney make her return to TV on HBO’s The Newsroom? If the West Wing actress could have her way, she would be working again with show creator Aaron Sorkin as soon as possible.

Sorkin fans will know Allison Janney from her role of press secretary C.J. Cregg on The West Wing, which ran from 1999 to 2006. However, following her success on the Sorkin show, the award-winning actress has worked primarily in film. Speaking to Inside Track, Janney discussed her return to TV, and her “need” to be on Aaron Sorkin’s controversial new show, The Newsroom.

“Well, he needs to put me on that show! I would love to be on it. Maybe he’ll think of a character for me. It would be great!”

Can you imagine Allison Janney on the workplace drama? We have our fingers crossed that Sorkin has read this interview, and is hastily writing her into The Newsroom season 2.

If she does return to the fast-paced world of Sorkin, Janney wouldn’t be the first West Wing star to make the transition. Recurring West Wing actor Adam Arkin was featured in The Newsroom 1×09, “The Blackout, part 2: Mock Debate”, and will be returning in season 2. Additionally, Newsroom star John Gallagher, Jr. featured in The West Wing 4×01, “20 Hours in America, Part 1” (although interestingly enough, he didn’t meet Sorkin until he began work on The Newsroom).

Actress Emily Mortimer let slip the date when season 2 filming will recommence. Not only will Adam Arkin be returning in season 2, season 1 guest star David Krumholtz will also be back, as confirmed by Aaron Sorkin.

Finallly, check out our Newsroom season 2 predictions for all the American and international headlines we could see in the next season.

The Newsroom will return to HBO screens in June 2013.

Arrested Development‘s fourth season aired three years ago today. To celebrate its legacy (and to try to forget how much we’re missing it right now), let’s rank the best recurring Arrested Development jokes!

It’s really no secret that Arrested Development has some of the best recurring jokes and gags of all time. Even people who don’t watch the show are familiar with things like “There’s always money in the banana stand” and “I’ve made a huge mistake.” The jokes in this show are just so understated and catchy that it would’ve been crazy had they not have caught on. Thanks to Arrested Development‘s recurring jokes, pop culture has never been quite the same.

To celebrate our undying love for Arrested Development, we decided to forgo the banner (sorry, everyone) and instead put together a list of all of the gags and jokes that we think are the best ones the show’s ever done. Not only that, but we’re leaving it up to you to rank them!

How to play: Love a certain joke and think that it should be at the top of the list? Upvote it. Really hate another joke and don’t understand how it got on the list in the first place? Hit that little downward-facing arrow. Don’t care either way for some of these gags? Then you can just leave them untouched. It’s all good! We just want to know what YOU think! With everyone participating we’ll be able to build a definitive list of the best Arrested Development jokes!

So, grab your denim cut-offs and hot ham water, and maybe even do a little chicken dance to get yourself pumped up (but not with the hot ham water in your hand, please). If you’re an Arrested Development fan, you’re sure to love ranking these jokes.

(Just be careful about which arrow you hit. You don’t want to hit the wrong one and find yourself saying “I’ve made a huge mistake.”)

Are there any ‘Arrested Development’ jokes missing from the list? Add them below!

Marvel fans aren’t pleased with the twist in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.

By now you know that Steve Rogers is revealed to be a Hydra agent in the first issue of the new Captain America: Steve Rogers series (Read our in-depth analysis of the new issue here). Naturally this news — that ultimate do-gooder Cap would be so evil — has not sat well with fans.

The general consensus is that this shit is unacceptable…

… And the only thing to do is ignore it:

Others think Marvel need a taste of their own medicine:

Then there are beautiful Photoshops like this one of Chris Evans’ Captain America ripping up a tree the comic:

Some people are Photoshopping the comic to make him say things that are just as outrageous as him being a HYDRA agent:

Emilia Clarke proves there is more to Dothraki than death threats in a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Clarke, who plays the indomitable Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, sets Meyers straight on the fact that Dothraki is, in fact, a real language created for the show. Linguist David J. Peterson crafted Dothraki, and all of the other fictional languages used on Game of Thrones — but even after six seasons, his words present Clarke with a continual challenge.

“You get it in English, at the top in the first script, it’s like, ‘This will be in Dothraki,'” Clarke recounts of her learning process. Following English is the Dothraki speech, followed by a literal translation, and then finally the dialogue in spoken English.

“And then I get an MP3, and then my kitchen hears it for weeks and weeks and weeks on end, until I sound convincing,” Clarke says.

But given the opacity (and complete invention) of the Dothraki language, Emilia Clarke admits that there have been times when she replaced her lines with something a little more… interesting.

“With the latest marvelous actors we’ve had doing Dothraki with us, it was a long day,” Clarke admits, giggling. Not realizing that the camera was on her, Clarke allowed a moment of silliness to take over.

“I thought it would be funny if I did ‘MMMBop’ in Dothraki,” she says. “And that didn’t help him at all! And then I think some of that was definitely my take.”

Ever game, Clarke dives in to her rendition of the Hanson hit, translated into the language of the brutal horse lords.

“I can’t stress how much less catchy that is!” Meyers laughs.

Game of Thrones 6×06, “Blood of My Blood,” airs Sunday, May 29 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
