Asked about the “challenge” in playing a lesbian, 24 and Happy Endings alum Cuthbert said plainly, “It’s like playing a human being, with a heart and a sense of humor, and who’s a little dorky at times and has a great collection of blazers” — just as Feldman famously sports. “That’s what it feels like.”

Congratulations are in order for Elisha who will be returning to the small screen next year in her NBC comedy, One Big Happy! I can’t wait to see Elisha in a new role.
Warner Bros. TV sitcom “One Big Happy” was penned by Liz Feldman (“2 Broke Girls”) who exec produces with director Scott Ellis for Ellen DeGeneres’ WBTV-based Very Good Production banner. Elisha Cuthbert, Nick Zano, Brandon Smith, Rebecca Corry and Chris Williams star.
Cuthbert plays a gay woman who decides to have a baby with her longtime best friend, who complicates the situation by getting married to a free-spirited woman.
we can finally rejoice! Elisha has landed a pilot at NBC; it was announced a couple of days ago.
From Happy Endings to a Happy possible new beginning?
Elisha Cuthbert has landed the female lead in One Big Happy, NBC’s Ellen DeGeneres-produced sitcom pilot about a lesbian, her lifelong male BFF and their newly complicated plan to make a baby together.
In the multi-camera project, Lizzy (played by Happy Endings alum Cuthbert) and her straight male best friend Luke (2 Broke Girls‘ Nick Zano) live together and finally succeed in having a baby via artificial insemination — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life (the yet-to-be-cast Prudence).
DeGeneres is exec-producing the pilot with production partner Jeff Kleeman, director Scott Ellis and writer Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls).
I’m so happy for her and added bonus is Ellen DeGeneres! I absolutely loved the Happy Endings episode when Elisha (as Alex) dressed up as Ellen for Halloween. We’ll keep you posted on the status of the pilot as the news comes in… here’s hoping for a series order!
There’s no word yet on if we’ll see Elisha reprise her role as Kim Bauer on the upcoming 24: Live Another Day… here’s hoping we’ll see Elisha share the small screen once again with Keifer Sutherland.
Elisha’s been very quiet lately, since tieing the knot, and I will be finishing up the remainder of the series, Happy Endings in the gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Also, no word yet on Elisha rejoining the fold for the rebirth of 24. I wish they would announce her but sadly it may not happen or they’re keeping a very tight lid on that.
So stay tuned!
