Mick Jagger To Become 6th Oldest 'Saturday Night Live' Host

May 3rd, 2012 3:03pm EDT
Mick Jagger
There's sure to be some good jokes when Mick Jagger hosts the season finale of Saturday Night Live May 19, but one of the biggest laughs could come from the fact that the cast members sharing the stage with the singer weren't alive when the Rolling Stones were formed.

Jagger, 68, is set to become the 6th oldest host on the show, following Betty White (88 when she hosted), Miskel Spillman (80), Ruth Gordon (80), Milton Berle (70), and Charlton Heston (70). Amusingly, Spillman was the winner of the first and only "Anyone Can Host" contest in 1977 - he was paid $3,000 for his hosting duties.

Aly Michalka
"Hellcats" star Aly Michalka looked hot in a little black dress at the "Easy A" premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. We're not crazy about the little cape-like part of her ensemble, but since she looks so good we'll overlook it.

On her new CW series Aly, of the teen duo Aly & A.J., plays a law student who has to join the cheer leading squad to stay in school.

Starpulse recently asked if she would be singing on the series. She explained, "My music is very special to me, and I take it extremely seriously.

It's something that's sacred, that my career as an actor is separate, but when it's ...

Amy Poehler & Aziz Ansari Talk About The New Season Of 'Parks And Recreation'

September 16th, 2009 10:02am EDT
Parks & Recreation
Eternally optimistic small town park director Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) spent the first season of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" working to transform a vast garbage-filled trench known as "the pit" into a family-friendly green space. Much like Leslie's steering committee, "Parks" has its own work ahead if it hopes to avoid falling into its own pit of TV oblivion.

"We're lucky that we had a little [six episode] first season so we're still getting into the groove," says Poehler. "I think like any new show you have to get things up and running and figure out where the bathrooms are. It's a c...

Starpulse Writer Compares Real Life To 'Post Grad'

Post Grad
I've always felt a companionship with Alexis Bledel due to her seven season stint as Rory Gilmore on the sorely missed "Gilmore Girls." I often imagined myself strolling through the Stars Hollow gazebo with Rory and her oh-so-cool mom Lorelai (Lauren Graham) before settling in for a night on their couch, rambling off sarcastic pop culture references at about 912 words a minute.

Now with the release of her new movie "Post Grad" Alexis and I have even more to bond over. I'm in the same situation as her character Ryden Malby, who is a recent college grad who failed to secure her dream job ...

But, over here at "TJAGS" we're not going to focus on the bad; instead, let's focus on ten good things that happened during the past year.

Jimmy Fallon
Truth, Justice And Gordon Shumway: (weekly column) - It's probably not the easiest thing to be Jimmy Fallon these days; the amount of backlash he endures is typically reserved for those the Iraqi media throw their shoes at. The web episodes leading up to the March premiere of his new show have been inconsistent, at best. To make matters worse, Jay Leno has just agreed to stay at NBC, hosting a new show at 10:00 PM on weeknights; effectively making Fallon the third hour of late night comedy (he will have to get behind Conan O'Brien for his spot under the bus where NBC threw them).
