Towleroad Interview: Ross Mathews Dishes On Red Carpets and Dream Guests

Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 12.57.58 AM

This is the second installment in a two-part interview with TV personality Ross Mathews. Click HERE for yesterday's first installment, in which Mathews discusses his new role as a spokesman for HIV testing.

If there's one thing Ross Mathews loves, it's pop culture. His sincere appreciation of all things pop and all-around nice guy attitude have won him a loyal fanbase of fellow entertainment enthusiasts (and recently earned him additional episodes onto his hit show's inaugural season). We caught up with Mathews last week to discuss award show red carpets, his pop culture obsessions and what life has been like since he's gone from talk show intern to talk show host.

Towleroad: What has it been like for you to have your own show?

Ross Mathews: It's a dream come true. I've wanted a talk show since I was eight years old, and now to be able to do it, and do it the right way and the way I wanted to is so rewarding. Especially because it's resonating with the audience, and the fans are getting it, and the format is clicking. People are understanding that this show really is a show for super fans in pop culture to unite. Everyone's welcome at this party. There are so many shows that turn down pop culture and talk about how stupid it is, but Hello Ross is all about 'I love it, you love it, let's talk it out.'

See the rest of the interview in which he talks about his dream guests and the recent TV finale that left him disappointed, AFTER THE JUMP...

Gwyneth Paltrow Producing Broadway Musical Based on Music of The GoGos

Gwyneth Paltrow is producing a Broadway musical, Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reports:

GogosThe show is based on the music of the GoGo’s, the California New Wave girl group of the early 1980s. Paltrow’s partner in the endeavor is Donovan Leitch, son of the 60s rock and folk icon Donovan, of “Mellow Yellow” and ‘Sunshine Superman” fame.

The pair have enlisted Jeff Whitty of “Avenue Q” fame to write the book, and I’m told it’s almost done. The GoGos’ iconic hits included “We Got the Beat” and “Our Lips Are Sealed.” I’m told the idea is for a jukebox show with a twist– it will be set in the 1600s and based on surprising source material that can’t be revealed yet.
