Hey it’s almost time for the final season of Californication so let’s talk about what it’s going to be like to be for someone brand new to the series and what it means for her future career. While this is still ultimately about the life of Hank (David Duchovny), I can’t deny that there will be at least one person piggy backing on the success of the series and the increased viewership it will likely have from the big push that this is Californication’s last season on Showtime. For Tara Holt, her career will get a boost, or at least that’s what she’s no doubt hoping and what I honestly want for her.
When you’re just starting out as an actor, your choice of role is pretty limited. For Holt, she’s mostly been taking on small parts like Bar Girl, College Girl, »

Tara Holt has joined the final season of Showtime’s Californication in a recurring role. In it, Hank (David Duchovny) is joining the writers room as his never-released film Santa Monica Cop now becomes a TV series. He’s riled frequently by his boss, the show’s old-school executive producer Rick Rath (recurring Michael Imperioli). Holt, repped by Nancy Chaidez & Associates and Untitled, will play Melanie, Rath’s gorgeous assistant whose presence causes a commotion in the writers room. Damon Herriman (Justified) has been cast as a recurring in CBS’ drama series Battle Creek, from Vince Gilligan, David Shore, Sony TV and CBS Studios. It centers on Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and FBI agent Milton Bradley, who have very different worldviews but are teamed up to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Mi. Herriman, repped by Apa, Art/Work Entertainment and Australia’s Lisa Mann, plays Battle Creek Detective Niblet, »

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...
The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.
Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

While it.s obvious that not all depressing films will be inspirational to viewers, a sizable percentage of films deemed "inspirational" inevitably make me want to crawl into the corner of my couch and bury my head between the cushions while I contemplate my life and what it.s worth. (I usually find a quarter or so, which I accept as the answer.) Such is how I feel after watching the first trailer for Anthony Fabian.s upcoming drama Louder Than Words, a film that turns a personal tragedy into an institution that has gone on to prevent untold numbers of subsequent tragedies for others. Is somebody cutting onions in here, or is somebody just blowing dust into my eyes? Louder Than Words tells the true story of John Fareri (David Duchovny), his wife Brenda (Hope Davis), and their four kids. Back in 1995, the husband and wife experienced the unthinkable »
Directed by Christopher Neil.
Ellis is about to leave his home in Tuscon to begin his freshman year at a prep school; in doing so he faces separation from his mother, whose new-age beliefs control her life, and the only father figure he as ever known, Goat Man.
Graham Phillips plays Ellis, a teenager who lives with his mother Wendy (played by Vera Farmiga) and their gardener Goat Man (played by David Duchovny), who is almost part of the furniture in their house. Following an invitation to attend the same prep school that his father, Frank (Ty Burrell) went to, he finds himself struggling to revoke his support for his mother who, apparently due to her fondness for everything new age, cannot fully cope with the rigours of normal life such as »

One of the most enduring genres in television is the buddy cop drama, often benefiting from the comedic and/or dramatic tension caused by the disparate characters' interactions. Reelz's police-drama Cracked is no exception, even if it offers a new twist on the genre.
Currently airing its second season, Detective Aidan Black (David Sutcliffe) has a new partner in Dr. Clara Malone (Brooke Nevin), a psychiatrist that helps Black through his post-traumatic stress disorder while they solve cases for the newly-formed Psych Crimes and Crisis Unit. A cop and a psychiatrist are an unusual pairing for a police drama, which got us thinking: what are the oddest TV detective duos of all time? Check out our Top Ten.

Director: Christopher Neil
Running Time: 94 minutes
Goats is based on the novel by Mark Poirier, who also wrote the screenplay, and stars David Duchovny donned with an excellent beard in an ensemble cast. Here he takes on the unusual role of a character named Goat Man, who lives in the house of Ellis (Graham Philips) and his new-age Mother, Wendy (Vera Farmiga). Goat Man (or Javier) is a Botanist and Gardener who helps out the family but also has a penchant for going on treks with his goats and grows a whole load of weed.
Saying that, Ellis is the main focus for the movie and he’s played interestingly by newcomer Graham Philips. His friendship with Goat Man has developed over years because they go on the aforementioned treks to find themselves but – stick with »

Liberty Global Set To Acquire Dutch Cabler Ziggo John Malone’s Liberty Global plans to expand its European cable holdings with an agreement to pay $9.4B in cash and stock for Dutch cable operator Ziggo. If regulators approve the deal, then Liberty — which already owns 28.5% of Ziggo — will merge it with Upc, another cable company it owns there. “Our combined operations will reach over 90% of all Dutch households, allowing us to compete more effectively with the other national telecommunications and satellite platforms in the Netherlands, and at the same time generate significant revenue and operating efficiencies,” says Liberty Global CEO Mike Fries.

The cult science-fiction series made a massive impact when it was on our screens, but its influence just keeps growing
The X-Files beamed down to the UK 20 years ago yesterday, first screening on Sky1 on 26 January in 1994 (and coming to BBC2 nine months later). An FBI procedural about alien abduction, fringe science, paranormal activity and submerged conspiracies, it took traditionally wackadoodle subject matter and transmuted it into TV gold. Cinematic, atmospheric and compelling, The X-Files barely had time to establish itself as a cult hit before becoming a global phenomenon – and even though the series ended in 2002, its influence can still be felt today. Here are six things it gave television.

To mark the release of Goats on 3rd February, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.
Based on the novel by Mark Jude Poirier and from first-time director Christopher Neil, Goats centres around the story of fourteen year old Ellis (Graham Phillips), who is getting ready to leave his luxurious home in the foothills of Tucson for his freshman year at Gates Academy, an East Coast prep school. This means leaving behind Wendy (Vera Farmiga – Up in the Air, The Conjuring), his flaky, new age mother and the only real father he has ever known, ‘Goat Man’ (David Duchovny – The X Files, Californication).
At college Ellis discovers a whole new world opening up around him, with new friends and love interests competing with old problems – his real dad Frank (Ty Burell – Modern Family), being one of them. As Ellis attempts to balance the conflicting relationships in his life, »

It might be us, but it does seem really quite likely that we'll get a third big screen X-Files adventure at some point in the future. David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Chris Carter remain keen, and the films are relatively cheap to make too. Furthermore, there's persistent fan interest and demand.
However, in a new interview with IGN, Gillian Anderson cautions that any new film now isn't likely until 2016. That makes it far less likely, in turn, that the alien colonisation storyline set up by the TV show would be followed. The colonisation was said to take place in 2012 in the show, but that'll be long gone by the time we meet Mulder and Scully on screen again.
So why the wait until at least 2016? Well, Anderson said that »
The 2014 Academy Award nominations were announced this week and the relative snubbing of Captain Phillips, Saving Mr Banks, Inside Llewyn Davis and GI Joe: Retaliation is going to have us all cursing the Academy and discussing the actual quality of American Hustle until about May.
Nonetheless one of the great tragedies of my life is that I cannot actually watch absolutely everything ever that comes out and try as I might to rectify this, there simply are not enough hours in the day. There are a couple of films available on the streaming services that have just been nominated for academy awards this week which I have not had a chance to see thus far.
Those films are; The Square, nominated for Best Documentary Feature and now available on Netflix. The Square is about the uprising in Egypt in early 2011 that made the news around the world and the circumstances around this. »

Things will soon draw to a close for Hank Moody (David Duchovny) on "Californication." The long-running Showtime series will end after Season 7, and viewers want to know if Moody and his on-again/off-again girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone) will end up together.
The first teaser for the upcoming season sure doesn't put a lot of hope in the possibility. While, per usual, Hank says he wants to end up with the woman he loves, his actions point in the opposite direction.
"Nurse Jackie" will return in April.
Showtime revealed Jackie Peyton, played by Edie Falco, will be back battling her demons on the network, beginning April 13 at 9 Pm Et/Pt.
The series follows the life a recovering addict and nurse who, at the end of the last season, slipped and popped a pill before the big ceremony to celebrate her sobriety.

5. Bring back Zach! (And other characters): When the season 3 finale revealed Dr. Zach Addy (Eric Millegan) as Gormogon’s apprentice, it disappointed many fans.
