Some of you may have noticed that we’ve had a guest appearance for season 5 of The Expanse listed in the “Upcoming Appearances” section of the sidebar for the past several months, but we weren’t allowed to include any specific details. Well, now that the first episodes of season 5 have been released, we can say more!
Tim is appearing as Admiral Sauveterre in episodes 2 and 10 of the latest season of The Expanse. Episode 2 was released today, while episode 10 (the season finale) won’t be posted until February 3, 2021. The Expanse streams on Amazon Prime and will run for six seasons in total.
As always, you can let us know what you thought of the episode in the comments! I’m not familiar with the show or books (although I’ve been told I should watch the show), so I don’t know anything about Tim’s character – outside of the fact that he’s a great lecturer! Looking forward to seeing more for sure.
The younger of the DeKay siblings has turned 18 – Happy Birthday, Danna!
It’s certainly been a crazy year – a global pandemic, distance learning to start Danna’s senior year of high school (and socially-distanced volleyball?!), masks and sanitizer everywhere, an equal rights revolution, an election for the ages, The Great Toilet Paper Shortage, so many hurricanes that they ran out of names…should I go on?
And though some things may have gone a bit differently during this trip around the sun, Danna seems to have handled it with grace and a fierce spirit. It’s been so inspiring to watch her grow from that sweet little girl who accompanied her dad to White Collar events into an amazing young woman – an academic, an athlete, an artist, an activist.
Thank you so much, Danna, for letting us come along on the journey – we’re looking forward to cheering you on in whatever your bright future may bring! Much love and respect! 💙🎉

Today’s the big one for Jamis DeKay – he turns 21 years old today! Happy Birthday, Jamis! Although things are pretty crazy right now, we hope you have an awesome day, and we’re wishing you happiness, success, and good health in the upcoming year and beyond!
Here’s the collage I posted on Instagram – you can leave your birthday wishes for Jamis there (he follows our account), or you can post them here if you don’t have an IG account, and we’ll pass them along!
I’ll be sharing a few other photos and videos on our IG stories throughout the day, including this one, which is from exactly 10 years ago today – on Jamis’ 11th birthday!
Jamis will be starting his sophomore year at Yale (remotely) in the fall, and hopefully we’ll have Covid under control by spring so he can get back to playing baseball for the Bulldogs!
The past year may not have ended quite the way anyone planned, but it was still a good one overall, as evidenced by these pics and the memories that go with them. Hope that your next trip around the sun brings happiness, good health, peace, and more moments like these. ❤️

Update: Tim posted on Instagram that his episode is episode 7 (apparently, they put clips from a couple of episodes into that trailer) – which should be airing in two weeks. Sorry for the mix-up – the networks and their lack of info are so frustrating! I’ll post a reminder when his episode is airing.
Apologies for the short notice, but I just found out about this today, and only by chance (happened to watch the trailer on Yellowstone‘s FB since we’ve been watching the show).
Tim will be on tonight’s episode episode 7 of 68 Whiskey! The episode airs on Wednesday, February 26 at 10 pm eastern on Paramount Network. Since many networks no longer put out info (like guest star lists) about episodes of their shows ahead of time, that’s really all we know at this point.
Here’s a screencap from the preview – I’m only posting one because the rest was full of spoilery stuff.
As always, we’ll have captures available in the gallery (which is back up and running) shortly!
Trailblazer, talent, beauty, icon, legend – just a few of the many wonderful words being used to remember Diahann Carroll today. Most of you in this fandom, of course, knew her as June Ellington, but she’d had a long and groundbreaking career before moving into that mansion on Riverside Drive. She won a Tony in 1962, a Golden Globe in 1969, was nominated for four Emmys and an Academy Award, and was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 2011. As the star of “Julia” in the late 1960s, she was the first black actress cast in a lead, non-servant role. Depending on your age, you may also remember her from recurring roles on “Dynasty,” “A Different World,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
On a more personal note, I loved Diahann’s role on WC. From the first episode to the last, she brought elegance, grace, and even a bit of sass to June and made her a character that everyone loved. I was so happy that a whole new generation was introduced to her singing, and I thought she had such beautiful diction while speaking as well. (And as someone who is admittedly fluent in profanity, I chuckled at the fact that even someone as classy as Diahann was not immune to the occasional expletive, as evidenced in the season six gag reel.)
Rest easy, Ms.
Carroll. You will certainly be missed. Also, fuck cancer.
The audiobooks Tim recorded last summer are now available for purchase!
