Remember Bonnie Dennison who played Daisy on Guiding Light?   Well, the young actress has just nabbed a primo role from the creative team behind the Emmy-Award winning comedy 30 ROCK, which includes Tina Fey!

According to Deadline.com, “Bonnie has landed a lead role in Fox’s multi-camera comedy pilot created/executive produced by 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard and exec producer by 30 Rock creator/co-showrunner Tina Fey and co-showrunner Robert Carlock.

The pilot which is an untitled comedy is set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time in its history. Dennison will play Thena (originally named Callie), a pretty but uptight sophomore, a hard-core feminist and leader of the sizable population of Cabot College that does not want men on campus. However, her militance masks a vulnerable and romantic side that pops up in unexpected ways.”

What do you think of Bonnie Dennison landing this role?  Shocked?  Delighted? What do you think of the shows premise? Would you be checking it out if it makes it to series?   Let us know!

I am willing to give it a try. Dennison wasn’t given the credit she deserved on GL. Of course, I am not sure anyone would have been well received after the ever so popular and talented Brittany Snow! Dennison brought a little more depth to the role IMO. I also enjoyed her very much on Third Watch! They should try to get Beth Ehlers to recurr as her mother!

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.
