Elisha Cuthbert Shows Conan More of Her Happy Endings Impressions

I think everyone who saw Elisha Cuthbert's Renee Zellweger impression on Happy Endings the other week wanted to see far, far more of it. And now we can, and it is good. She also busts out a SOLID Ellen Degeneres dancing. Let's go ahead and ask that any and all people working on Happy Endings and Ellen table their other projects and devote themselves entirely to the goal of getting Ellen to guest star on the sitcom and have an Ellen's-dance-moves dance-off with Alex, yeah?

'Happy Endings' Star Elisha Cuthbert Cast in NBC's Ellen DeGeneres-Produced Comedy Pilot

Elisha Cuthbert is the latest Happy Endings alum to land a starring role in a new comedy pilot. She's been cast as the lead in One Big Happy, an NBC pilot executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, Deadline reports. The show, created by former Ellen writer Liz Feldman, follows two best friends, a straight man and a lesbian woman, who agree to have a baby together via artificial insemination. Nick Zano, who played a recurring role on Happy Endings as Penny's girlfriend, is playing the male lead on this show. NBC ordered the pilot back in October.

Happy Endings Recap: "Of Mice And Jazz Kwon Do" and "Dave Of The Dead"

These double episodes are messing me up, yall! God bless the efficient people at Hulu. In yesterday's first episode “Of Mice and Jazz Kwon Do,” Dave finds himself repulsed to be living in Max's bachelor filth pad rather than the butterfly-soap haven that was his apartment with Alex. "I thought our napkins had v-necks," Max explains before wiping his face all over Dave's laundry. Worst of all is the guys’ shower, where rust pumps out like old blood and the soap is just fifteen smaller soaps smashed in a ball and tied together with hair. Under the auspices of catching a mouse, Dave starts squatting in Alex’s pristine apartment/repeatedly [...]

Talking with Elisha Cuthbert and Zachary Knighton about 'Happy Endings' New Season

The new season of ABC's critically-acclaimed sitcom Happy Endings is currently underway, and a few weeks ago, I had the chance to talk to stars Elisha Cuthbert and Zachary Knighton about Season Three with a bunch of other journalists. Cuthbert and Knighton play Alex and Dave on the show, the couple whose disastrous wedding kicked off the pilot episode. Now, two years in, their characters are back together, in addition to a lot of other exciting stuff that Happy Endings has in store for us this season. Cuthbert and Knighton chatted with us about racist parrots, why Kiefer Sutherland couldn't play his 24 daughter Cuthbert's dad in this show too, [...]

Happy Endings Review: Night of a Thousand Comebacks

Happy Endings had its two-episode premiere last night, and the best, brightest sign that it's shaping up to be a good show was how much better the second episode was from the first. An upward trajectory: not as easy as you might think! While the premise dominated the first half hour, by the second its superior writing and great cast chemistry was already shining through. I have a big Friends-shaped hole in my heart. I'm not saying Happy Endings filled it, but if things keep going this well, I think I can mash it around in there until it's approximately the same shape and size.

The series begins when [...]
