Plot: OutlineBased on the inspiring true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.
Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.
With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.

You can see him on NEW GIRL on FOX!
It’s not enough that Glee fans are dying to know how Ryan Murphy will incorporate the victor(s) from The Glee Project into the show this season. Now comes word that the uber-writer-producer wants to add another looker to the already attractive cast!
EW just got a peek at the latest casting call for the drama, which will begin its fourth season on Sept. 20: “Young man 18 and over to play 17. He is extremely handsome. Must be an excellent singer. HUGE guest star, MAJOR recurring role.” Is Murphy about to top last season’s addition of Darren Criss? Stay tuned!
That’s not all: Looks like someone’s about to get a recruitment letter to play ball. (Hmm, wonder who THAT could be?) Murphy also wants a 30-something man to play Johnny, a “tall big dude who is an Ohio State football recruiter.” This, too, will be a major recurring role.
Glee already plans to introduce lots of new faces this year, including new parents for Mike Chang and a boyfriend for Mercedes. Don Most (Happy Days) and Valerie Mahaffey (United States of Tara) also signed on as Emma Pillsbury’s ma and pa.
What do you think of the latest additions?
HOW ‘BOUT THIS HOTTIE, Ry Murphs
so she can network with fancy people… and so we can see more pretty pictures of her, duh.
