Why Jesse Lee Soffer is Primetime's Next Big Thing



There must have been something in the water in Oakdale, Illinois. The fictional burg from CBS Daytime's defunct sudser As The World Turns proved quite the training ground for future film starlets like Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan and Parker Posey.

Now a new generation of ATWT grads are taking Hollywood by storm, including Vampire Diaries hunk Zach Roerig and one of pilot season's most in demand actors for the past few cycles, Jesse Lee Soffer

A month doesn't go by without an item about Soffer being written up on Deadline or The Hollywood Reporter's website. With impressive acting chops and a chiseled, slightly-freckled, alabaster body to go along for the ride, Soffer has booked steady work since vacating the role of Will Munson on the CBS Daytime soap.

Most recently, he's been getting ink and/or HTML code due to his turn as murder victim Travis Alexander in Lifetime's upcoming Jodi Arias biopic, Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret. In the flick, premiering Saturday at 8 EST, Soffer stars opposite LOST's Tania Raymonde

Country Crooner's Affair With Ex-Young and Restless Bad Boy Inspired New CD

Relationship drama has been the source of inspiration for countless singers; it looks like the same is true for LeAnn Rimes. The country warbler sat down with People to talk about her new album Spitfire and the affair with Eddie Cibrian (ex-Matt, The Young and the Restless; ex-Cole, Sunset Beach) which led to the breakup of both their marriages. Here's an excerpt:

The songs on her new album Spitfire, out June 4, chronicle the drama and include an apology to her ex-husband Dean Sheremet. "I broke the sweetest heart of the only man that's ever loved me," she laments in "What Have I Done." She shares the experience of being a mistress in "Borrowed" and offers an olive branch to a woman scorned in "Just a Girl Like You", which many will assume is aimed at Cibrian's ex Brandi Glanville.

For those who may have been living under a rock at the time, back in 2009 Cibrian and Rimes got together while filming the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. Both were married, so of course the celebrity news world lapped up the story's twists and turns like kittens in front of a bowl of cream. READ MORE

Joss Whedon to Wesleyan Graduates: "You're All Going to Die"

Geek God Joss Whedon is no stranger to death.  Whether it’s Marvel’s The Avengers or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, death (and killing off his characters) is always a recurring element of the “Whedonverse.”
 
Recently, Whedon delivered the commencement speech for Wesleyan University.  The message he had for recent grads was,  “You’re all going to die.” 
 
Whedon expanded on this point by discussing the contradiction between the desires of one’s body versus their mind:
 

 [Y]ou are at your physical peak. Your bodies have just gotten off the ski slope at the peak of growth and potential! And now comes the black diamond mogul run to the grave.
 
And the weird thing is… your body wants to die. On a cellular level that’s what it wants. And that’s—probably?—not what you want. I’m confronted by a great deal of grand and worthy ambition from this student body. You want to be politicians, social workers, you want to be artists. Your body’s ambition? Mulch. Your body wants to make some babies and then go in the ground and fertilize things. That’s it!
