His music depicting rough and tumble lives with humanity to spare before going back to the British and Irish isles with the romantic comedy, and fatherly drama of THE ENGLISHMAN WHO …Read On »

Santino Fontana’s character Greg Serrano may be a comparatively less loony person on the CW’s hour-long Monday night musical comedy series CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, but the actor’s own schedule looks pretty bonkers, as he’s simultaneously co-starring in NBC’s new Thursday-night police drama SHADES OF BLUE as NYPD officer Stuart Saperstein. The two shows could hardly be more different. CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna, as Rebecca Bunch, who gives up a promising Manhattan law career to move to West Covina, California, in pursuit of her oblivious crush Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). Rebecca’s daydreams tend …Read On »
