Allison Williams, HBO Girls co-star and daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, is in talks to play the title role in the Michael Sucsy-directed Rosaline, the Shawn Levy-produced feature based on Shakespeare that is mobilizing at 20th Century Fox. I’ve heard Williams is also on the short for the Fantastic Four reboot, which is in the very early talking stage. Maybe not too long until Brian Williams is known as Allison’s dad. She’s repped by Paradigm. Rosaline is based on the Rebecca Serle book When You Were Mine.

Growing up, I always had an appreciation for costumes. My grandmother and grandfather both had great senses of style; their closet was filled with the most amazing vintage pieces. I used to play “dress up” for hours, mixing and matching my grandmother’s dresses with fabulous shoes and beautiful accessories. I feel like part of my job today is playing dress-up and it’s just one more reason I love it so much.
As an actress, I am lucky enough to work with a brilliant group of hair, make-up and wardrobe professionals. They have harnessed my dress-up training and turned it into a sense of style, which is just so much fun to cultivate. I get excited about trying new products and styles; in fact, I love the entire process of creating a “look.” I didn’t even know that was a ‘thing’ until three years ago, even though I’ve been pulling clippings from magazines for far longer.

If you’re a Comcast subscriber who is seasons behind on shows such as Game of Thrones, Dexter, Downton Abbey and Girls — and without access to premium channels such as HBO and Showtime — it’s your lucky week.
Comcast is giving all customers of its Xfinity TV service free week-long access to catch up on a ton of TV shows they may have missed.
“We’re calling it the the biggest catch-up in TV history,” a Comcast spokesperson told Mashable. “We’ve seen a huge trend in binge-viewing, where people watch the same show in a series for hours. This is a great opportunity to plow through your favorite shows.”
More than 100 TV series across 30 premium cable and broadcast are now available on demand via the Xfinity TV app, Xfininity.com/TV and through the TV service, from Monday until Sunday. Although the TV’s traditional on-demand subscription gives viewers some access to shows throughout the month, this “Watchathon” promotion will give access to the whole season or full series.
