Fantasy Casting: A “Gilmore Girls” Remake

GG deserves a remake!

Following the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life reboot, I was very disappointed with the ending. Diehard fans needed more from the series, and what better way to do that than through an all new show. There are endless possibilities when it comes to filling the iconic roles. The stars on this list are just some of the ones BTSCelebs feels would be a good fit.

 Danica Mckellar (Lorelai Gilmore)

From “The Wonder Years” to The Hallmark Channel, Danica has proven time and again that she’s a veteran with versatility in the acting department.  The perfect Lorelai has be a loving mother with a little bit of a wild side.

Today is a day for gratitude…and for some, survival! 😉 Let's not pretend family dynamics can't be challenging (you're talking to a woman who spends major holidays with her entire modern family… ex's and all!). But you know what? Family gatherings can be a beautiful thing, and it's worth it to take the high road, for real – especially if kids are involved. It's really okay to stick to neutral topics, nod & smile, step away when helpful, toast to all the good things, and call it a night. Because you know that conversation you're dying to have? That confrontation that you just know will finally get that other person to see the error of their ways or get you so-called "closure," but will probably just drudge up old hurt and drama? AVOID IT. This conversation only goes well in your imagination, so let's leave it there, k? 😉 . . . So here's to turkey and pumpkin pie and, well, self-control! 😂 Happy Thanksgiving!! ❤🦃🥰🥂 . . . What are you grateful for? Tell me below! ⬇️ . . . #HappyThanksgiving #Thanksgiving #gratitude #turkeyday #familytime #familydynamics #gobblegobble

Zenia Marshall (Rory Gilmore)

The Date My Date alum is still a rookie in the acting world, but she’s making a name for herself on TV. Recently, she’s been seen on The CW network and Hallmark, and Zenia would be perfect as the good girl who matures through trial and error.

Chad Michael Murray (Luke Danes)

The original Tristan (GG) would be the best Luke to couple up with a new Lorelai! Plus, he has probably already been introduced to Danica since he recently joined the Hallmark family.  Everyone loved him in the early 2000s… so its time to start off a new decade.

Jane Lynch (Emily Gilmore)

She was the best evil stepmother in the Cinderella Story series, because of her hilarious jokes and good acting. Emily has to have a mean streak with a touch of humor. Jane is the ideal choice for the role.

 

Brian Austin Green (Christopher Hayden)

The Christopher character was created to be a former teen heartthrob who swept Lorelai off her feet. What better guy to play him than the famous 90s crush from “Beverly Hills, 90210”? I think he and Danica would have great on-screen chemistry as the couple with a confusing yet emotional relationship.

Hopefully, a “Gilmore Girls” remake will become reality sometime in the future.

Jamie Grace Surprises Fans With An Amazing Promise For The New Year

Jamie Grace celebrated another wonderful birthday today and made this promise to her beloved fans via social media:

View this post on Instagram

HERE IT IS, Y’ALL!!!! In 2020, I’ll be releasing new music EVERY SINGLE MONTH! 2018 was an amazing season of being in love for the first time and intentionally slowing down to focus on new wife life. 2019, our daughter was born, and as I’ve intentionally taken time for cuddles and tummy time, I’ve been home, more than ever. Both of those seasons have given me a new perspective on life, love and family; three things I’ve always appreciated but have never experienced in this way. In many ways, the newness has made me feel like a kid again, and ive missed the early days of my career where i created from that sense of “new.” Consequently, I’ve been inspired more than ever and have written (and produced 😱) so many songs, that i want to make sure i do something with them 🤓👍🏽 So subscribe to my YouTube channel, turn on your notifications on Instagram, follow me on Apple Music, Twitter, Spotify, Facebook, join my team on Patreon (to hear the songs early) – do what you gotta do!! I feel so honored to make music birthed out of my love for Jesus, people and art, and i wanna make sure you guys aren’t left out!!! 🎉💽🌮🎶🤓💜👍🏽

Yesterday, Jason Ray blew us away yet again with his amazing vocals.  The singer covered GOT7‘s latest single “You Calling My Name”, and it’s addictive.

Watch his urban styled cover video below:

Click Here to watch GOT7’s original K-Pop version. The popular boy group needs to seriously consider collaborating with this American talent. He has excelled in many of his GOT7 covers. A couple of my personal favorites are “Never Ever” and Eclipse.

[Interview] Story Jam’s Stephanie Rogers: “This Is An Incredibly Exciting Time For The Art Form.”

“Story Jam” returns to Chicago,IL this Sunday! Learn more about the artistic and expressive event now.

BTSCelebs: How was Story Jam created?

Stephanie Rogers: Story Jam started in 2014, when I was leading an event band and attending live lit storytelling shows. I sat in the audience and thought…’wow, this is a very cool scene, but it needs music!’ I wasn’t spending a lot of time songwriting back then, so the original music piece came as a thrilling challenge. To this day, every story gets a freshly written, original song; and I’ve personally written about 200 songs in response to the personal narratives told at Story Jam.

How does it differ from other Chicago events?

There’s no other storytelling show that has music crafted specifically for the show, as far as I know. But…the key difference is the true, personal, immediate, and intimate nature of elevated storytelling. It’s more theatricalized than bar room storytelling. It’s taking real, surprising, shocking, hilarious, or moving stories and turning them into performance. Then, add in a 10-piece band and original songs, and it’s unlike other live events.

Which special guest’s story do you identify with the most?

Well, the belief is that anyone in the room will be able to identify, in some way, with every story. However, I am particularly looking forward to seeing Tracy Baim. She was on the front lines of AIDS activism in the 80s and 90s, and, well…I guess I was around then a bit.

From this year’s event, which song will resonate with listeners?

Ha! All of the songs are fantastic of course! But, from this year…let’s see…there have been about 35 or so songs written since January of 2019, and I would say the one we’re doing for Peter Sagal on Sunday is going to be plenty fun.

Tell us more about your direct connection with The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.

I was watching immigrant children speak to Congress about the 30-day deportation letters they received. The kids all had very serious, life-threatening illnesses for which, if they had gotten deported as the government had intended, they would not have been able to receive treatment. The U.S. was willing to send these children to a country and a medical system where they would die.

I could not imagine the terror they were experiencing. I called my friend Jenny Bailey, who is an immigration lawyer in Maine (and one of the smartest people I know) and I asked her if she knew of anyone in Chicago who was making a difference in the lives of immigrant children. She told me about The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights. I called them immediately and they loved the idea of partnering with us. They are an amazing bunch!

Will you take Story Jam to other cities and countries in the near future?

Yes! We hope to grow Story Jam far and wide! We are currently planning more corporate functions, workshops, classes, retreats, and shows. The movement of storytelling is spreading rapidly, and this is an incredibly exciting time for the art form.

This Sunday, catch “Story Jam” at CityWinery Chicago! Doors open at 11AM and the event starts at noon.

BTSCelebs sends a special thanks to producer/singer/songwriter Stephanie Rogers and The Silverman Group for the interview and images.
