We asked a sampling of NYC stars to tell us what the future holds Mario Cantone,comedian and actor The economy's going to get better. Marijuana is going to become legal in a few more states. Gay marriage is going to become legal in a few more states. It will be a long time before there is an Italian-American sitcom that is successful. Billy Eichner,host of "Billy on the Street" on Fuse The new season of Smash will be celebrated as the most realistic depiction of the theater industry since Alf. Lea Michele will die of jealousy when Anne Hathaway wins the Oscar for Les Misérables. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will kill at the Golden Globes, but Jennifer Lawrence will look amused more than she'll actually laugh out loud. I will force Rachel Dratch to run an obstacle course on the new season of Billy on the Street (less a prediction, more of a guarantee!). Pauly D,reality-TV star of"Jersey Shore"(http://nypress.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Celeb-Pauly.jpg) Vinny will still be pale I will release my first album on G-Note records Everyone will be pre-gaming with Remix cocktails My hair will still be able to survive 150-mph winds Michael Symon, co-host of ABC's"The Chew"(http://nypress.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Celeb-Michael-Symon.jpg) I hope and feel that TV continues to go in a friendlier direction. If they continue to do reality TV, I'm hopeful that it's done more in a style that celebrates success as opposed to humiliating those who have failed. I think food will continue to become more specific-as opposed to being billed as American, Italian, etc., it will focus more on specific regions and towns. This is more personal and selfish than a prediction, but I would love to see more green space and dog-friendly areas developed in the city. One thing the world doesn't need more of is big-ass buildings! Madison Dirks,actor in Broadway'sWho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?(http://nypress.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Celeb-Madison-Dirks.jpg) I'm pretty sure it's going to start with January and end with December. Everything in between is a mystery. And thank God for that.
