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 »

For four seasons, Jack Coleman played Noah Bennet, aka HRG (short for “Horn-Rimmed Glasses”) or “the man with the plan,” on NBC’s HEROES. Noah, adoptive father of the indestructible cheerleader Claire (played by Hayden Panettiere, now a regular on NASHVILLE), was an operative of a shadowy agency that co-opted people with superpowers. However, fatherly loyalty won out with Noah – usually. It was always hard to be sure of his motives, which was one of the things that made him such a memorable character. Pennsylvania native Coleman was a standout member of the large HEROES cast. His earlier career included …Read On »
