Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain.

But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future.

Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want.
The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues.

QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why)

PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it my way. Thanks a milyon. :)


  1. ? he's not fat at all?

    but you know what? it's kind of nice to see a guy getting this kind of attention from the media. usually it's always girls. but it doesn't really make a difference. I just hate seeing how a lot of guys on TV can get away with looking like unhygienic schlebs (not that he is) and if a girl gains like five pounds omg she's OBESE.

    but other than that I have no opinion because I don't watch this show.

  2. well that photo isn't the most recent one of him, but I just wanted a pic of James Roday and DH eating chinese food.

    but you're right....even presently, he isn't OBESE.

  3. I never noticed the weight gain, but I haven't watched the show since the first season came out on DVD. (The sad result of having no TV.)

    I don't know why it's such a big deal for anyone, male or female. He gained a little weight. So what? imho he looks better - a little more everyday, average guy - with more weight.

    James Roday is far hotter than Maggie Lawson. Just sayin'!

  4. it ain't a big deal! the media's just stupid. if he gained 200 pounds and was driving himself around in a scooter then it would be a big deal. I just meant to say you rarely see this kind of spotlight shown upon a guy in the public eye. well, to some degree, but just think of like, Kelly Clarkson and Jessica Simpson.

  5. I just finished watching the season premier and he has gained a LOT of weight! I have always thought that he was really cute and still is a good looking guy but if I had a really popular show on TV I would do all I could to stay super fit and keep the show going. Hey James... P90X.


  6. I too haven't noticed much of a change in him till this season premier. he's bulkier, but to be compeltely honest i dont know if it's weight gain or muscule mass.

    the clothes from season 1&2 were polos shirts (mostly) and the occasional button up. he also wore a crap load of green (which i LOVED cause it's my fav color, and on him so bonus..err sorry..i'm rambling) but then they got him in other colors, plaids, and more plaids. i like the polos from the past seasons. whoever has been dressing him from season 3 on..needs to be smacked.

    the ill fitting baggy jeans and god awful plaid shirts completely squares his body off. you can't tell if he's just muscle or if it's chub. either way he looks fantastic, i like a man w/some meat on his bones, but like a said the costume designer for this show is making some VERY poor choices. and Gus is getting the same treatment as season 1 w/just a slight increase in the more dressy suit type clothing minus tie.

    he's far from fat though.

  7. Please someone help him find the number to Jenny Craig.

  8. Yeah Roday as definitely gained some weight but honestly who cares. Sure it might be a little distracting seeing how thin he was in seasons 1 and 2 compared to now but hes still funny as hell and that's all that matters. He's the guy that runs the show and Psych is one of the best shows on TV right now, and easily one of the best in the last decade. There's absolutely zero reliance on vulgar jokes and dirty topics. It is a clean show that cracks me up and keeps me entertained. James Roday is the man and as long as he keeps on cranking out more Psych (regardless of his future weight gain or loss
    ) I'll always be a huge fan of his and the series. Keep up the good work man!!

  9. @ Last Anon THANK YOU, that was meant to be the point of the post....but your words flow much better than mine.

  10. I'm not criticizing Roday at all for gaining weight. I'm just depressed about it because he was SO hot the first and second seasons :(

  11. James has gained weight, to deny that would be to be blind. Sure, he still looks good and yes, age might play some part in it but not all. It doesn't matter to many and it doesn't matter to me but it does matter to the TV World. We all know that on the screen an actors/actress needs to look their best. That's the number one rule. Actors/Actress know that when they go into that type of work field. We all know that.

    Psych will not be playing forever, that is the sad, hard fact. I wish it would be different and we are blessed that is has lasted this long. Its a great cast and they work so well together.

    James is a terrific actor so we'll see him on the screen even after Psych is over. How much we see him depends on his physical appearance. The more fit he looks, the more we will get to watch his career move forward.

  12. @Last Few Guys
    Good points...I guess the point about the inner realities of the TV world is true. However, on my side as part of the audience, I will never look down on someone or change my viewpoint on their acting/performance because of a weight gain (or a weight loss for that matter) unless it happens to Pippa Middleton's butt...that'd be funny... #PopLikeABalloon

  13. Or a better point,
    if Nancy Grace lost weight and was somehow magically not ugly...I'd still hate her.
    Yeah, that's it.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
