Last October, Blindie predicted that Heroes hottie Dania Ramirez was going places–we even went as far as calling her our latest Ga Ga girl…and it seems CoverGirl cosmetics agrees!

The worldwide makeup juggernaut announced to People StyleWatch that Ramirez is their latest spokesmodel.

The 29-year old beauty jokes that the deal has “been in the works my whole life. I’ve always dreamed of being a CoverGirl.”

One of Blindie’s Ga Ga Guys Taylor Kitsch is making the promotion rounds for his No. 1 blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine–and his latest pitch is to Entertainment Weekly.

While Kitsch’s day job is playing the broodingly sexy Tim Riggins on NBC’s fantastic drama Friday Night Lights, he said, “Not seeing Riggins in Gambit was incredibly important to me.”

The TV hunk may be getting major buzz for his big screen jump, but he says he’ll “never say no to” FNL because of all it’s done for him.

Up next for the talented hunk? Playing suicidal Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Carter in The Bang-Bang Club, which he’s shooting in South Africa and dropped 30 lbs. for.

One of Blindie’s favorite TV series Friday Night Lights is officially coming back for two more 13-episode seasons, E! Online confirms.

Like this season’s arrangement, the next two seasons will first air on DirecTV and later on NBC. Yes, we non-DirecTV peeps will be sad to get the episodes later in the season, but it’s better than being canceled!

“The reality is that to have the opportunity to create something new with [this show] every day is just the greatest gift,” show star Connie Britton (who plays the coach’s wife and school principal) said before the news broke. “It would be great if we had another season.”

The only sad thing is current Dylan High seniors, including Taylor Kitsch’s Riggins, Minka Kelly’s Lyla, Zach Gilford’s Matt Saracen and Adrianne Palicki’s Tyra, are graduating and may be moving on from the show!

Adding to the minority factor of The Office (Stanley Hudson, Kelly Kapoor and Oscar Martinez), hunky actor Idris Elba picked up where Rashida Jones left off as ethnic guest star eye candy on the NBC hit.

Playing Dunder Mifflin’s new boss Charles Minor (get it?!), Elba made his hunky debut on The Office, shaking up the staff.

“Oh my God!” Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) said of Elba (who can next be seen with Beyonce Knowles in Obsessed). “He’s like a black George Clooney!”

You can watch the full episode on Hulu.
