This season, newcomer Becca Tobin plays the feisty new cheerleader, Kitty, on FOX’s Glee. So, it only seems appropriate that she be immortalized in the spicy, sweet candy, Hot Tamales.

Tobin is co-hosting the 12th Annual AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) Oscar Viewing Party in West Hollywood on Sunday, Feb. 24. And to raise money for the organization’s efforts, a one-of-a-kind Hot Tamale candy art portrait will be auctioned off.

“When I saw how incredible this piece turned out, I was speechless,” Tobin tells Celebuzz. “I may just have to enter the bidding war for it at the event!”

Jason Mecier (the artist behind the notorious Honey Boo Boo portrait made from 25 pounds of garbage) used more than 5,000 pieces of Hot Tamale candy and worked for more than 40 hours to create the original piece of Tobin.

“I love Becca! She’s such a hot badass! I knew instantly when approached for this portrait that it needed to be made out of Hot Tamales! I’m honored to be able to help her raise money for such an important cause,” Mercier says.

At the APLA event, Tobin will autograph the piece before helping to auction it off for the cause. For more information on the event, visit the APLA website.

Get to know the Welsh actor whose Adam has swept Kurt Hummel off his feet on the Fox series

Oliver Kieran-Jones can do a mean Marge Simpson impression. Tipped off by a fan, when we caught up with the Wales-born actor last week we quizzed him on his accents and impressions and along with the spot-on Simpsons character he also dropped in and out of Welsh, British, American and Irish with ease. Aside from his natural British accent, we don't think those particular skills will come in handy as his new gig as Adam Crawford, the first boy to sweep Kurt Hummel off his feet on "Glee" after this season's breakup of power-couple Klaine. (But it's "Glee" so we're not counting anything out!)

Oliver-as-Adam made his first appearance two weeks ago with a cheeky performance of "Baby Got Back" alongside his ragtag NYADA glee club, the Adam's Apples, and will continue for at least two more upcoming episodes this season. We caught up with Kieran-Jones to talk about his whirlwind "Glee" casting, what he thinks of his character Adam and the fan reaction to him, and what it's like jumping the pond to try his hand at the American film and TV scene.

The Good Wife will stand up for a weeping widow when Jessalyn Gilsig guest-stars on the CBS drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.

In Episode 17 of Season 4, the Glee/Heroes alum will play Jaine Ludwig, the ”tough, smart and elegant” “grieving widow of an Illinois Supreme Court Justice who died in a car accident,” series cocreator Michelle King previews. “Alicia and Will represent her at a Coroner’s Inquest when the insurance company tries to prove that they are not responsible for paying on the Judge’s insurance policy.”

Gilsig’s other TV credits include Nip/Tuck and the new History drama Vikings, which premieres this March 3. She also has the film Somewhere Slow, which she produced and stars in, premiering at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose on March 2.
