Some of TV’s funniest casts were on hand at this year’s Comic-Con to bring a little humor to the “Extra” stage. Watch the video for silly moments caught on tape, like the cast of “Children’s Hospital” fighting over “Extra’s” Renee Bargh, and Rebecca Romijn revealing her Adult Swim makeout partner on “NTSF.”
TNT has found the female lead for its private investigator pilot King and Maxwell. Rebecca Romijn has come on board to star opposite previously cast Jon Tenney (The Closer) as Michelle Maxwell. “Strikingly beautiful” might be the only part of the character description needed to make Romign a fit for the role, although the X-Men actress does come with some action cred.
The pilot surrounds a duo of private investigators, Sean King, played by Tenney, and Romijn’s Michelle Maxwell who are both former Secret Service agents now working together in a sort of Moonlighting setup. They both put the skills learned in their former jobs to good use, giving them an advantage when it comes to getting their man. The two are also said to have some serious chemistry according to Deadline, and certainly it’s a rare show that manages to have a male and female team without some sexual tension. There’s no arguing the two leads that have been cast are easy on the eyes, and it’s not hard to believe they’ll be attracted to each other. Hopefully they can avoid the pitfall of making plot secondary to impossibly beautiful people solving crimes without a hair out of place while exchanging witty innuendo.
King and Maxwell does sound like a good fit for TNT, and with this casting it’s chances of making it to series are good. Big names will always bolster the chances of success, and the two leads both come with a fan base. With good writing this type of show can still work, and I’m betting we see this one make it to TNT’s lineup.
Rebecca Romijn kicked off her modeling career in the early ’90s — and today, her 40th birthday, the long-legged beauty looks better than ever!
Romijn was just 25 when she hit the runway for Victoria’s Secret (left) back in 1997, one year before she married “Full House” star John Stamos.
On top of numerous modeling gigs, Romijn would go on to star as Mystique in the “X-Men” movies, played a transsexual on “Ugly Betty,” had lead roles on short-lived shows like “Pepper Dennis” and “Eastwick” and currently appears on “NTSF:SD:SUV::”.
While her marriage to Stamos full apart in 2005, she rebounded very well. Romijn married Jerry O’Connell in 2007 and they now have two children, daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip.
While she may not be hitting the runway in her underwear anymore, Romijn has barely aged in the last 15 years.
“I don’t change my look much, because I’m a mom, and on a day-to-day basis I have to be as low-maintenance as possible,” she tells PEOPLE. “But heading into red carpet season, you have to figure out how to make your hair look as great as possible, as often as possible.”
So Romijn tapped stylist Dean Roybal, owner of Planet Salon in Beverly Hills, to lighten her locks using Wella’s new Illumina color (the star is a spokeswoman for the brand). Now, “I’m the same blonde I’ve always been, but it’s just beautiful,” she says. “It’s got this added translucency.”
Illumina, hitting salons in January, is a new line of permanent color that keeps hair as close to its virgin state as possible. “I was one of the first people to get to try it, and it’s amazing,” Romijn says. “My hair feels so good, and I’m thrilled.”
Romijn, a natural blonde, keeps her color looking bright with regular touch-ups. But she’s not against a drastic change, either.
“I’ve gone dark before, and I get tempted to do it all the time,” she says. “Whenever I go to a meeting for an acting role, it comes up, and I always offer to change my color, because it’s interesting. At this point, I’ve been blonde a long time … but I get the itch every so often.”
She hasn’t had to deal with covering grays yet, either, though she knows someone who might: “My husband!” she jokes. “He’s starting to go gray and it’s all my fault. Maybe I should recommend Illumina to him …” Tell us: When’s the last time you colored your hair?
All month long, Ellen is raising money for breast cancer research. What better reason for Jerry O’Connell to strip down to a Speedo, get freaky with Ellen’s audience, and then head into her splash tank?
It seems actress and model Rebecca Romijn‘s 3-year-old twin daughters Charlie and Dolly are starting to assert themselves over fashion.
“They fought over their first article of clothing this week, which is crazy because they have such different styles,” Rebecca comments to Us Weekly. “There’s a pair of tie-dye leggings that they both bee-lined for, and it was a knock-down drag-out fight.”
“They took turns wearing them,” she adds.” Dolly wore them on Monday, Charlie wore them on Tuesday and Dolly wore them on Wednesday.”
It seems the pretty pair are also becoming a little more independent.
“They dress themselves,” Rebecca says. “We had a little last minute wardrobe panic as we were leaving because Dolly said that she wanted a dress that looked more like mine. She was wearing a gray ruffle dress and she said she wanted one that looked more like mine, so we quickly grabbed this one.”
