College Republicans  •  By  •  0 Comments

TheWrap is reporting that Alexis has joined a live staged reading of “College Republicans”. The reading takes places on April 23.

Mae Whitman and Alexis Bledel will star as Karl Rove and Lee Atwater in a live staged reading of Wes Jones’ script “College Republicans,” which topped the Black List in 2010.

Tyler Hoechlin, Skylar Astin, Chace Crawford, Zach Woods and Shannon Woodward will also star in the reading, which will take place at the Montalban Theater in Hollywood on April 23, 2016 at 8 p.m.

In Jones’ buddy comedy based on true events, aspiring politician Karl Rove (Whitman) wants to become the next national chairman of the College Republicans — but the odds are stacked against him. He and his new campaign manager Lee Atwater (Bledel) set off on a road trip to drum up support before the vote and discover some dirty tricks along the way before ending up at the contested College Republican National Convention.

In a further twist, given the current political climate and questions about gender in Hollywood looming large, the lead roles of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove have been gender flipped, with Whitman and Bledel starring as the Republican political operatives.

“At this moment in American political history, there is quite literally no more appropriate script for a Black List live reading than Wes Jones’ ‘College Republicans.’ And given the GOP’s record on women’s issues, gender flipping Atwater and Rove feels particularly appropriate,” said Black List founder Franklin Leonard. “Wondering what a contested GOP convention might look like in July? Come find out on April 23.”

Jones, who will also direct the reading, currently writes for Showtime’s “Billions.” “So excited to be a part of the Black List and bringing this script to life on the stage! As the 2016 election cycle has laid bare the absurdities of our system, there’s no better time for ‘College Republicans,’” said Jones.

Entertainment Weekly is giving us a sneak preview into the revival of “Gilmore Girls”, “Gilmore Girls: Seasons”. Alexis did a beautiful photoshoot with Lauren Graham, they are on the cover and the first couple of episode stills have been released. The issue is out on (digital) newsstands this Friday!

“It’s a lifestyle.” “It’s a religion.” That’s Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) talking about The Donna Reed Show back in season 1 of Gilmore Girls. But it may as well apply to Gilmore fans today. And if you’re one of those people who’s been not-exactly-patiently waiting for nearly nine years to revisit Stars Hollow, set your calendar for later this year. The Connecticut crew is back together shooting four 90-minute Gilmore Girls movies for Netflix, and EW has your exclusive first look.

On the Warner Bros. soundstage one late February morning, it was as if not much had changed since Rory and Lorelai had that last cup of coffee over at Luke’s. Dinner at Casa Gilmore. A strong drink in hand. And a cast relieved to have been reunited by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who created the beloved series back in 2000.

After filming a scene alongside her TV mother Emily (Kelly Bishop), Graham said of the experience, “You know how you finish college and you’re a few years older and you’re like, ‘I wish I could go do this now ‘cause I would appreciate it so much more and understand it and get more out of it’? That’s the opportunity I have this with and I appreciate every day that I’m here.”

Though we wouldn’t dare spoil top-secret plot points, we did get intel on Lorelai and Luke (Scott Patterson), Rory and her career, and of course, Emily’s life as a widow. (Edward Hermann, who played Emily’s husband Richard Gilmore, died in 2014, though he’s honored throughout the movies.)

As for special guest stars (Sutton Foster! Mae Whitman!), plans for more movies, and some information about Sherman-Palladino’s now-legendary Four Final Words to the series? It’s all in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on newsstands Friday, or buy it here now. And don’t forget to subscribe for exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW.
