YOUNG & HUNGRY Scoop: Star Jonathan Sadowski Spills on the Upcoming Wedding & Foods That He Craves

jonathan sadowski young & hungry

ABC Family’s new comedy series YOUNG & HUNGRY offers top-notch comedy surrounding the antics of a young woman who convinces an upcoming billionaire to take her on as his personal chef. It is the makings of a classic rom-com with one big difference, the show leans a bit more towards the comedy side with a strong ensemble made up of veteran comedians, including Jonathan Sadowski, Emily Osmemt, Rex Lee, Kym Whitley, and Aimee Carrero.

All are relatively young to have such strong comedy chops, but every scene with them in it is just flawlessly funny. The best scenes are with the entire cast, but even when they play off each other in pairs, it still tickles the funny bone and makes your ribs ache from laughing. That is not to say there is not a health dose of romance too. It is just a bit more subtly woven amongst the bigger comedic moments.

Yet this week’s summer finale for YOUNG & HUNGRY will be employing both the rom-com elements to fine form as the clock ticks down on Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) and Caroline’s (Mallory Jansen) wedding and whether Gabi (Emily Osment), Elliot (Rex Lee) or Yolanda (Kim Whitley) can just stand by and watch it happen all knowing that perhaps Josh is over-looking the one person who may really be the one his heart wants.

In a recent press conference call, star Jonathan Sadowski happily shared some insights into the comedic gold that keeps this cast on their toes and teased the upcoming wedding episode. [Read more…]

DOCTOR WHO: Welcoming Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor

Ripping a page right out of classic DOCTOR WHO, Series 8 introduces actor Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor in a quiet, unassuming manner. Gone are the days of frantic frenzy and over-exuberant energy of the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) or the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith). Peter Capaldi’s introduction carries the weight of responsibility of returning the Doctor with a more stately performance. The Twelfth Doctor does not run or yell, in fact he is rather confused and uncertain as he steps into the now unfamiliar shoes and tries to figure out who he is all over again – and he is not the only one. Yet Clara (Jenna Louise-Coleman) and the fans are uncertain too. Just who is this Twelfth Doctor? That will be carefully explored as Series 8 unfolds. Will Clara learn to accept this stately version of the man she knew or will his new persona be as confusing to her as it will be to viewers? [Read more…]
