Only in Jersey: 2/7/12

Welcome to another edition of Only in Jersey!

If it’s filming in Jersey, takes place in Jersey, or is about celebs from Jersey, you will find it here.

Bobby Cannavale: I'm not sure that handgun existed in the 1920's.

While “Boardwalk Empire” is technically filmed in New York, the Atlantic City-based series is Jersey, through and through.

This terrific HBO series is so dedicated to the Garden State that it’s replacing one Jersey actor with another! The departure of West Orange-born Michael Pitt, whose much beloved character Jimmy Darmody bit the bullet at the end of the second season, is tempered by the announcement that Union City’s Bobby Cannavale is joining the third-season cast. Entertainment Weekly reports Bobby will be a major stick in Nucky Thompson’s (Steve Buscemi) craw as far as the bootlegging business is concerned. Bobby also starred in the 2003 film “The Station Agent” alongside fellow New Jerseyan Peter Dinklage (star of fellow HBO series “Game of Thrones”) and was filmed in Newfoundland and surrounding N.J. areas.

Kathy will play Kate in a “Jimmy Kimmel Live” skit dubbed “Kate Is Enough: The Kate Gosselin Story.” The skit airs at 12:05 a.m. (EDT) Wednesday, Sept. 9 on ABC.

Meanwhile, speaking of channeling people, it just struck me who Kate resembles in her latest People spread. Take a look and think about it for a minute:

The slicked-back hair, the brilliant blue eyes, the classy clothes... hmmm, who is Kate channeling?/Credit People

Not ringing a bell yet?

Doesn't Kate's new look remind you of another former tabloid darling?

Of course, I would still argue that Princess Diana is leaps and bounds above Kate…

After “Lost’s” oh-so-deep finale last night, I thought it was time to lighten things up a bit. Hence, this hilarious clip from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” featuring Matthew (Jack) Fox. Enjoy!
