Morning Brew – Julie Goldman joins the cast of a new lesbian-themed ABC comedy

Good morning. Or should I say “mourning” for Clexa fans? 


In case you didn’t read them yet, you can check out EP Jason Rothenberg‘s interviews about the episode with TVLine, EW and The Hollywood Reporter. And that’s all I’m going to say in the interest of not spoiling anything for anyone. The rest of you can read the recap soon!

In some better news, Julie Goldman has been cast in a new ABC sitcom about a straight guy and his lesbian best friend. She’ll play JoJo, a fun-loving Southern biker who runs Austin’s friendliest gastropub.” No word yet on who will play the lead lesbian.

Chinese television has new guidelines that ensure there’s nothing gay or immoral happening.

BuzzFeed recreated famous movie posters with LGBT people in the leading roles.

Want a few tidbits on when to expect that LGBT storyline on Once Upon a Time?

King is a Fink (aka the production company behind Hashtag and the new series Full Out) talk about their super queer work with Northwestern’s Communications Blog.

Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for yet another season. Not that we were worried.

The internet thinks Kate McKinnon is flirting with Kristen Wiig in the Ghostbusters trailer and I’m fine with it.

Lily Tomlin answers five Reddit questions in this video.

You’ll never hear “Closer” the same way again after watching this video from Claude, an amazing sexual health resource for women who “play” with women. (It’s been banned from Facebook, BTW.)

Cate Blanchett talked with Marie Claire at the Oscars. On Carol:

“Whenever I play a role, whether it’s onstage or screen, I’m always interested in points of difference. If there’s any similarities or anything I can take away I think that happens inadvertently. But I did think a lot about Patricia Highsmith and how personal the book The Price of Salt was to her and that it was written under a pseudonym and the difference for a gay man, which of course homosexuality was illegal at the time the film was set. There wasn’t even a name for Sapphic love between women at the time. It was more considered hysteria. It wasn’t even accorded the status of being illegal. You were simply put on pills or given electroshock therapy. So I did think about the incredible bravery and sacrifice that Carol had to make.”

LP talks about her new relationship and new “breakup” EP with Interview.
