The top 10 things we're living for this week. Get into it.
10. TV: The Graham Norton Show. Hosted by the cheeky Graham Norton — what'll that crazy gay Brit say next?! — the 11th season of the racy BBC comedy chatfest The Graham Norton Show premieres Apr. 28 on BBC America with Ewan McGregor, Cate Blanchett, and more. Future guests include Nicki Minaj, Rufus Wainwright, and Marina and the Diamonds.
9. MUSIC: The Wanted, The Wanted. It took a couple decades, but the world finally figured out that there doesn't have to be at least one fugly member in any given boy band. The dreamy British quintet's self-titled U.S. debut EP drops Apr. 24 with singles "Glad You Came" and "Chasing the Sun."
8. TV: Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. About a year after Bravo first documented the meeting of Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak and Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, the network milks their post-baby nuptials in the series Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding, which premieres Apr. 26. You know one Bravo exec's still patting himself on the back for that title.
7. DVD/BLU-RAY: Cinema Verite. Available April 24, the Emmy-nominated HBO film Cinema Verite goes deep behind the scenes of the landmark 1973 PBS series An American Family, which is widely considered the first example of reality TV. You'll gag over The Secret Circle's Thomas Dekker as son Lance Loud, a flamboyant rebel and Mumps frontman who's often credited as the first gay man on television.
6. MOVIE: Sound of My Voice. Cowritten by Brit Marling — who blew us away with last year's sci-fi drama Another Earth — and Zal Batmanglij, Sound of My Voice stars Marling as a cult leader who may or may not be from the future. The psychological thriller is out Apr. 27.
5. THEATRE: Ghost the Musical. You in danger, girl, if you don't see Ghost the Musical, a high-tech London-bred pop musical based on the 1990 film. The hot ticket opens Apr. 23 at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre with Hair's Caissie Levy, hunky Richard Fleeshman, and Da'Vine Joy Randolph in the role that won Whoopi Goldberg an Oscar.
4. MOVIE: The Five-Year Engagement. Some of our all-time favorite comedic actors — Jason Segal, Emily Blunt, Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, Mindy Kaling, etc. — converge in the Judd Apatow-produced rom-com The Five-Year Engagement, which is in theaters Apr. 27. Nicholas Stoller of Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek directs.
3. MOVIE: Bernie. As an effeminate, small-town Texas assistant funeral director who befriends and then murders an affluent widow played by Shirley MacLaine, Jack Black admirably stretches to give a fine, nuanced performance — no, seriously! — in Bernie, which is based on a true story. In theaters Apr. 27, the terrific dark comedy also reunites costar Matthew McConaughey with his Dazed and Confused director Richard Linklater.
2. TV: The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet. Tune into Lifetime for the Apr. 26 premiere of The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, an intimate lady business talk show — co-executive-produced by Demi Moore — in which tabloid-friendly British photographer and Courtney Love’s former BFF asks legit celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, and Sarah Silverman probing questions like, "What's your favorite sex position?"
1. EVENT: The New York Boylesque Festival. Thirsty Girl’s Jen Gapay and Daniel Nardicio present the 1st Annual New York Boylesque Festival Apr. 27 and Apr. 28 with charismatic male stripsters from around the world like Mr. Gorgeous and Evil Hate Monkey, plus the World Famous *BOB* and Sweetie as hosts. The festival is immediately followed by Boylesk University, a series of classes and lectures led by Tigger!, Hot Toddy, Go-Go Harder and Scott Ewalt.
