10 Movie And TV Spoilers We Didn’t Know Last Week (July 28th)

10 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

With Comic-Con going down in San Diego over the past few days it was always going to be a big week for announcements, rumours and spoilers surrounding forthcoming film releases and the next seasons of everyone’s favourite television shows. Comic-Con has now drawn to a close for another year and it certainly didn’t disappoint. A wealth of new information has become available and as usual WhatCulture.com is here to separate the wheat from the chaff and give you the entertainment information you need to know.

Unsurprisingly Comic-Con brought with it a wealth of information about forthcoming superhero movies. Potential spoilers were revealed about X-Men: Apocalypse, Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. The super-news wasn’t exclusive to Marvel titles either; some enticing casting information may have been let slip regarding who we may be seeing play DC’s Shazam.

Comic-Con was by no means the only »

Tina Majorino on TNT's 'Legends' and 'Veronica Mars' Fans

26 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

TNT's new series "Legends" is certain to be a showcase for star (and "Game of Thrones" vet) Sean Bean, who plays an FBI agent named Martin Odum who morphs between identities for every case. The role is daunting, but his costar Tina Majorino -- a.k.a. Mac on "Veronica Mars" and Deb from "Napoleon Dynamite" -- provides some grounded supporting work as rookie agent Maggie Harris.  We caught up with Majorino at Comi-Con International 2014 to discuss the fascinating new TNT series and the lasting awesomeness of her "Veronica Mars" fan base.  »

Morris Chestnut: The Best Man Wedding A “Complete Departure” From Previous Films

25 July 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Morris Chestnut was busy fending off fans at Comic-Con yesterday, where he promoted his new TNT miniseries Legends. When not talking up his show with Sean Bean (aka: the star one of the most iconic Game of Thrones scene ever), he gave us a little scoop on what fans can expect from the just-announced Best Man threequel, out April 2016. Chestnut says writer/director Malcolm Lee told him The Best Man Wedding is “a complete departure” from the first two films.

What could it mean?! No more New Edition lip-syncing performances?! Don’t do that to us, guys! We also asked what’s up with his character, Lance, who ended the last film [spoiler alert!] delivering his best friends’ baby in the back of an SUV immediately following his wife’s funeral. Chestnut fills us in about Legends and the Best Man Wedding, above. »

Emmy Guest Star Nominees Prove Integral to Storytelling

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.

That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

For Lane, who just earned his third nomination on ABC »

Ali Larter on 'Legends' Star Sean Bean: 'He's Extraordinary.'

24 July 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

TNT's "Legends" debuts August 13, and one thing is for certain about the crime series based on Robert Littell's book "Legends: A Novel of Dissimulation:" It's going to be an extraordinary showcase for star Sean Bean, the "Game of Thrones" alum who plays undercover FBI agent Martin Odum. While tackling every case, Odum changes personalities and becomes a different "legend" to solve the crime -- and every embodied legend has his own life and lifestyle. Is he crazy? Maybe. But the thrill is watching Odum question his own sanity as his transitions seamlessly into his new identities. Fortunately, Odum's costars are a bit more down to Earth, at least in theory: Crystal McGuire (Ali Larter) plays his fellow operative who has her own personal history with the mysterious guy. We interviewed Larter at Comic-Con to discuss Bean's acting, the sly complexities of her character, and whether "Legends" is crazier than Larter's most melodramatic movie, »

Sean Bean swaps identities in new 'Legends' trailer

18 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In TNT’s upcoming undercover-espionage thriller Legends, Sean Bean plays Martin Odum, a deep-cover operative who’s uniquely adept at adopting new identities. Perhaps predictably, there are an awful lot of people who want to kill him—and that’s the least of his problems. The show debuts on August 13, but EW is excited to share an exclusive new trailer for the series, which hints at the show’s twisty serialized arc, plus a look at Legends co-stars Ali Larter, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, and Morris Chestnut.

Ned Stark Pretty Much Confirms Major 'Game of Thrones' Fan Theory

18 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Spoiler etiquette for "Game of Thrones" has always been complicated since the HBO drama is based on George R. R. Martin's books (though the show is catching up!).

But there's one huge question that hasn't been answered in the books yet: Who is Jon Snow's mother? Book readers have been debating theories about that for years, and fans of the show are now getting in on the action. Now, Sean Bean -- who played Ned Stark, Jon's beheaded father -- has seemingly confirmed the top theory about Jon's mother!

[Spoilers]

So, earlier this week, the Internet was abuzz about a video a fan made outlining evidence for that prevailing theory, which is titled "R+L=J." Basically, the theory is that Jon's true parents are Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark (Ned's sister). Watch the fan's video here.

The evidence is pretty good, but nothing is confirmed. Nobody in the »

Sean Bean on Legends, Method Acting, and Game of Thrones Flashbacks

17 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sean Bean is in danger of losing his head again, although this time, it won't end up on a pike. As the lead in the new TNT show Legends (premiering August 13), his character suffers from a unique kind of multiple personality disorder — he's a deep-undercover operative who starts to have trouble distinguishing between himself and his various assumed identities, or legends. Where does one end and the other begin? The only thing that's for sure is that he won't be the one to die this season. (Although plenty of his co-stars are at risk.) "It's great when they kill the characters!" laughed Bean over the phone during a break promoting the show at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. "They knock them off, and the audience is thinking, 'What is going on?!'" Bean chatted with Vulture about going Method, cross-dressing, and his hope for Ned Stark's return »

Ali Larter Won't Return For "Heroes" Reboot

13 July 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Ali Later has confirmed she will not be reprising her role of Niki Sanders in NBC's upcoming event series reboot "Heroes: Reborn".

Out doing promotional rounds for the new TNT series "Legends" in which she stars, she tells TV Guide that her filming commitments and lack of desire to return to the role are the main reasons she won't be back:

"No, At this point, I think I've heard that Jack [Coleman] is coming back, but I'm committed to [TNT's] Legends. I'm on series, so I don't have the time to work on another project. Not that I didn't love Heroes and loved working on it, but I'm just at a different stage of my life. I'm super excited and proud to be a part of this show and working with Sean Bean and an incredible cast."

Ali Larter says she won’t be returning for Heroes Reborn

13 July 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in February, NBC announced that they’d be reviving Heroes, which for a short time was their most popular and beloved show. As you will likely recall, it all went to pot after the first season, but the studio managed to keep it limping along until 2010 when it was mercifully put out of its misery.

Like Arrested Development, 24, and Veronica Mars before it, Heroes is getting a new chance at life, this time via a 13-episode “event” series in 2015 called Heroes: Reborn.

The series will follow a new group of characters, but that the door is open for original series stars to appear. We know that Jack Coleman, who played Hrg a.k.a. Noah Bennet, will be back (effectively making him the Agent Coulson of the Heroes universe), and that both Zachary Quinto (who played Sylar) and Milo Ventimiglia (who played Peter Petrelli) are too busy to return. »
