NBC’s Chuck (Fridays, 8/7c) marked the midway point of its farewell season by dropping a “baby” bombshell relating to Sarah’s past. The action picks up this week with Sarah, dreading whatever it is that Shaw set in motion, high-tailing it to Hungary to confront her original CIA handler (played by White Collar‘s Tim DeKay), whom she fears is out to harm, among others, her mother Emma (Charlie’s Angels‘ Cheryl Ladd).

Vanessa Bryant almost filed for divorce from Kobe four years ago because of his cheating, reports RadarOnline.
A source close to the couple revealed, "Vanessa almost threw in the towel four years ago. Kobe has always had a slew of girlfriends, and the cheating was almost blatant."
The insider added, "Vanessa had consulted with a divorce attorney, not Laura Wasser, who she has hired to represent her now. Kobe promised Vanessa he would stop cheating, »
Kobe, reportedly worth anywhere from $150-300 million, will most likely give up half of his fortune to Vanessa, since the couple married 10 years ago without a prenup. Kobe and Vanessa are seeking joint custody of their daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5.

Near the end of this season’s first great episode, General Beckman asks a telling question, “It was a bit like old times, wasn’t it?” This may be true for the characters, but it’s even more telling for Chuck as a series. The previous five episodes had strong moments, but they lacked the consistent entertainment of its heyday. This week, the entire main cast is directly involved in the story, even nearly forgotten characters like Ellie and Alex. It’s a welcome return to form and doesn’t strand half the characters in unnecessary subplots. They work together to defeat a dangerous enemy in a refreshingly cohesive story from Writer Alex Katsnelson, who co-wrote “Chuck Versus the Muurder” last season. Both his writing and the »

Fans of the show could not help but notice that Linda Hamilton, who plays spy matriarch Mary Bartowski, has thus far been absent from Chuck season 5. But we do not have to fear that Mom Bartowski will be gone for good -- Linda Hamilton is set to return to Chuck for the season 5 -- and series -- finale in January.
Mama Bartowski is coming back!
Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…
• Brian Frons — aka the man responsible for axing both All My Children and One Life to Live — will vacate the role of ABC Daytime president at the end of January. (Too little, too late, no?) Replacing Frons will be Vicki Dummer, who is presently senior vice president of ABC’s Current Series and Specials division, which is being »

Just the mere fact the Chuck series finale is the last episode of the series is enough to make it seem more epic than it probably has any right being, but now news has broke Linda Hamilton will reprise her role as Mary Bartowski, Chuck’s mom, for the finale. Having Hamilton back is the best news I’ve heard in some time for the series. Cool guest stars are a Chuck staple, but few of them can match up to the sheer amount of badassery that oozes from Hamilton. The two-hour final episode is set to air January 27 and will be titled “Chuck Versus the Goodbye”.
TV Guide reported the casting, adding executive producer Chris Fedak’s refusal to give away any information on Mary’s return. Apparently even the smallest tidbit would ruin the whole series. I guess her appearance will be »

Before it bows out for good, "Chuck" will stage one last Bartowski family reunion.
"If I said anything" about the circumstances of Hamilton's return, "I'd be ruining too many good spoilers," co-creator Chris Fedak tells TV Guide.
"Chuck" is in its final week of filming, and the cast and crew have already shot the last scene of the finale (though not the last scene ever, since they're going out of order).
"There were a lot of tears," Fedak says. "... We have been cherishing each day as we've neared the end."
Fortunately for the rest of us, that end won't come for a while. "Chuck" returns to NBC Dec. 9, and the finale is set for Jan. 27. »
You’ve been that person walking out of the theater smiling while the rest of the crowd passing by seem to be throwing their tickets away in disgust. You liked the bad movie. You’re not alone. We’ve all been there at some point, and it’s not a bad thing. Everyone deserves to indulge. Even the most hardened of cinephiles have a few skeleton’s in their closet – acclaimed critics included.
Roger Ebert liked The Zookeeper, A.O. Scott found “an amazing kind of emotional integrity and intensity” in the Twilight franchise, and Richard Corliss wasn’t afraid to say he enjoyed Clash of the Titans. Everyone has standalone indulgences like Zookeeper or Titans. There are hundreds of bad movies filled with just enough nostalgia or fun to keep you coming back for more. The choices become less clear when you start looking for the great guilty pleasure franchises though. »

Kim appeared on Australian radio show, "Kyle and Jackie O," and set the record straight surrounding her split. "I want to make clear that I would never marry for a TV show, for money... for anything like that, and I think that it's ridiculous that I even have to defend that. »
Once Upon a Time's a hit in its early going. Grimm showed life in the dead zone that's Friday night. But fairy tales aren't police procedurals. They don't have a prime-time track record. Not a good one, anyway. They might even be cursed. If you were to count all the long-running fairy-tale series on your fingers, you'd have plenty of free digits, even if you counted Linda Hamilton's Beauty and the Beast—a few times. Prior to this fall, prime-time's last major attempt at a fairy tale was Pushing Daisies, which died of low ratings in 2009. But things may be changing. Coming off a big premiere, Once Upon a Time held steady on Sunday night, »
Although the marriage only lasted a little over two months, Kim will not try to have it annulled. The 30-year-old, who has a prenuptial agreement to protect her multi-million-dollar fortune, is citing "irreconcilable differences."
Kim issued a statement that said, "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands »
Before we eat that last footlong and pour a 40-ounce soft drink out on the curb, there are 13 more episodes of Chuck left in its fifth and final season, kicking off Friday (8/7c on NBC).
Much has happened to our titular Nerd Herder-turned-spy and his friends, family and fellow agents in the past four seasons. And for the most part, we're fairly satisfied. We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.

Playing a superwoman is something that Carrie-Anne Moss has always done exceedingly well; her turn as Trinity in "The Matrix" films is third maybe only to Sigourney Weaver in "Aliens" and Linda Hamilton in "Terminator 2" as one of the movies' most formidable female characters. But lately, the actress has stepped away from action-heavy films to tackle a new character, that of being a parent. And evidenced by her turn in "Fireflies in the Garden," it seems like her role in real life has started to be reflected more vividly in the ones she tackles on screen.
In the film Moss plays Kelly, the estranged ex-girlfriend of Ryan Reynolds' Michael Taylor, who steps in to play peacemaker and provide support after his mother dies. Although her role is only a small one in a film filled with plenty of big names, including Reynolds, Julia Roberts and Willem Dafoe, she leaves a memorable impression, »

Angel Momma for Chuck Season 5
In four seasons of Chuck, we’ve met both of Chuck’s parents and Sarah’s father, but we have yet to catch a glimpse of Sarah’s estranged mother. The wait is over folks. In the eighth episode of the upcoming season, Sarah’s mother will make her debut appearance and a former Charlie’s Angel will play her. It seems Chuck likes to use the most badass women in Hollywood to play the moms (Chuck’s mom was played by Terminator star Linda Hamilton).
The lucky angel is 60-year old actress according to TVline is Cheryl Ladd.. You couldn’t ask for anyone better, am I right? Although we don’t have a name for Mrs. Sarah’s Mom, we do know there’s a complicated past between the two and they haven’t seen each other in five years (which would be »

The premiere for the fifth and final season of Chuck may have been bumped back a week but that hasn't stopped the guest star news from flowing. One big piece of casting news that has been expected was who would get the role of Sarah's (Yvonne Strahovski) mother; particularly as Chuck's (Zachary Levi) is played by cult and sci-fi heroine Linda Hamilton. In true Chuck tradition they have scored a similarly impressive actress with former Charlie's Angels star Cheryl Ladd.
As first reported by TVLine Ladd will first appear as Sarah's estranged mother Emma in episode 8, which should air in January 2012. As with all the paternal relationships in this show, this looks like it will be a complicated and strained one thanks to her abandonment of Sarah when she was young. The pair haven't seen each other in five years and it is unclear as to what kind of background Sarah's mother will have, »

“Black Moon Rising” is one of those rare 80′s films that’s a bit of an amalgamation– it’s a B list film with an A list pedigree. The leads are Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones, and veteran thespians Linda Hamilton, Robert Vaughan, William Sanderson, and Nick Cassavettes. Even better, the script was conceived by the legendary John Carpenter, a man revered in most cinematic circles. Yet it’s from Roger Corman’s New World Pictures, and helmed by a director who exchanged low budget films for television. So how does this cross pollination of differentiated talent bear out? Surprisingly well, presenting a diverting action film that’s the cream of the 80′s adventure genre. The Black Moon of the title is a hyper advanced automobile, designed by Nasa and capable of exceeding over 300 miles per hour. It’s also got an unexpected optional extra not factory installed–a »

Last year, Chuck introduced us to its title spy’s mom, Linda Hamilton. And this year? For its final season, the show is introducing Sarah’s mom, Emma. The possibly recurring character is described as a beautiful blonde who is, in essence, a walking hug. Our suggestions to play the part:
* Carrie Fisher: Not only does her Star Wars bro, Mark Hamill, guest in this season’s opener — making her casting an almost-reunion — the erstwhile Princess Leia just dropped a ton of weight. And what’s the old saying? If you lost it, flaunt it!
* Rene Russo: Check out these credentials, »
