How David Tennant Escaped Typecasting, From ‘Doctor Who’ to ‘DuckTales’

15 August 2017 1:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In recent years, David Tennant has proven that he’s much more than just “The Doctor.”

He’s been a detective (“Broadchurch”). A duck (“Duck Tales”). A “dastard” (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” in which he’ll appear for Season 2). And soon, a devil — having just been cast as co-lead character Crowley in Amazon’s limited series adaptation of the apocalyptic fantasy novel “Good Omens.”

Once upon a time an actor like Tennant would have been typecast forever as the time-traveling Doctor of “Doctor Who,” a classic sci-fi hero beloved by many. Once they’ve gone “genre,” actors have often found it tough to escape the label: “Star Trek: The Next Generation” star Sir Patrick Stewart has often told a story about auditioning for a well-known Hollywood director at »

New Stretch Armstrong animated series heading to Netflix

1 August 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Aug 1, 2017

Animated series Stretch Armstrong And The Flex Fighters is due to hit Netflix later this year. Here are the details...

A few years back, Hasbro were hankering for a movie version of Stretch Armstrong to grace the big screen. It was part of a bunch of properties they were developing, along with various board games and toy lines. They even linked Twilight's Taylor Lautner to the lead role, and tapped Breck Eisner to direct. At this point, it looks like that project is a lost cause.

31 July 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix and Hasbro have announced a deal to bring the classic children’s toy Stretch Armstrong to the small screen with a new animated series entitled Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters.

Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters is the first Hasbro brand to receive a Netflix original series order. We have been waiting for just the right moment to re-imagine Stretch for a new audience and our friends at Netflix got it right away; they have been a tremendous partner,” said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President, Hasbro Inc. “We have hit a superhero sweet spot, and with Netflix’s global reach, »

Boldly Go And Look At These Awesome Star Trek: Discovery EW Covers

27 July 2017 3:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a stop-start production process, Star Trek: Discovery – the latest TV iteration of the Trek franchise – is finally about to debut on our screens. To celebrate its arrival in this galaxy, Entertainment Weekly‘s new issue is sporting three variant covers of the series’ stars, showcasing the prominent female characters that will headline the show. Notably, Sonequa Martin-Green’s lead First Officer Michael Burnham (yes, Michael) and Michelle Yeoh‘s Captain Philippa Georgiou.

These covers look great, make no mistake about it, but the tagline for the issue has grated many Star Trek fans. “Where no woman has gone before” is a nice reference to the fact that Discovery has a female lead character, but it does seem to forget that the franchise has had one before. Kate Mulgrew played Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager, which ran for an impressive seven seasons from 1995 to 2001. Come on, EW, you must know that. »

Comic-Con: 'Star Trek: Discovery' Goes All in With Gay Storyline -- and There's a 'Rent' Connection!

22 July 2017 4:37 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Star Trek: Discovery is making history on the small screen.

CBS All Access' anticipated scripted series broke some casting news during Saturday's panel at Comic-Con -- and there's an unbelievable Rent connection.

Anthony Rapp, who plays Lt. Stamets, an astromycologist, fungus expert and Starfleet Science Officer aboard the Starship Discovery, revealed that fellow Rent alum Wilson Cruz will be joining the series as his character's love interest.

"I can announce that Wilson Cruz will play my love interest and my partner in Star Trek: Discovery," announced Rapp, who plays the first openly gay character in a Star Trek TV series. "I'm very proud of that and that he's a scientist."

Shortly thereafter, Cruz -- whose character is Dr. Hugh Culber, medical officer of the Starship Discovery -- confirmed the news on Twitter, tweeting, "Well, apparently, the cat is finally out of the bag... I'm »

"James [Frain] is playing Spock's father, Sarek. He's the character that's introduced in the original series. We get to meet him a little earlier, when he has a slightly different job," Anthony Rapp explained. "We also get to see his relationship with Sonequa's character, who is a human raised a Vulcan.

"I'm her adopted father in a sense," Frain added. "I take her into my family."

According to Jason Isaacs, the Spock connection isn't the only Easter egg they've left for fans of the franchise.

Comic Book Review – The X-Files #16

19 July 2017 12:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews The X-Files #16…

“Resistance,” Part 3 (of 4): With Scully under arrest, Mulder must partner with a hated enemy in order to bring down a corrupt official.

Tensions are building to an absolute knife edge in the penultimate issue of The X-Files continuation run, part three of ‘Resistance’, as Joe Harris front loads his story with the most pointed commentary yet about the Trump administration, the Lovecraftian alien menace cementing its hold and both Mulder & Scully under serious threat from the insidious forces taking power in the government. Events are racing toward the kind of conclusion you only ever get in Chris Carter’s magnum opus; enigmatic, open-ended and filled with topical subtext. ‘Resistance’ as a mythology story in many ways feels like the super soldier narrative of Seasons 8 & 9 of the show done with a little more political, satirical panache.

The super soldier storyline hasn’t been weaved into »

Orange Is the New Black: Here's What You Should Know About Season 6

30 June 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

"Orange Is the New Black's fifth season just premiered, and you're already talking about season six?!" you might be wondering to yourself. And yes, we realize it's a little early to already be speculating about a sixth season, but then again, Netflix has already renewed the prison dramedy for two more seasons. That means it's not really about if we'll be seeing our favorite inmates in the future, but when. Let's take a minute to break down what we know so far, shall we? The Cast Season six will likely introduce us to a few new faces, because even if no new inmates are brought in, there are always unfamiliar actors in the flashback scenes. It's also safe to bet that the new episodes will offer some lesser-known characters their chance to shine, the way season five does with Frieda and Brandy (Asia Kate Dillon). Another suspicion we have »

'Orange Is the New Black's' Piscatella Goes Inside the Mind of a "Layered" Monster

20 June 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the entire fifth season of Orange Is the New Black.]

Call it poetic justice.

After watching Poussey (Samira Wiley) die at the hands of an untrained guard, Taystee (Danielle Brooks) decide not to pull the trigger and Red (Kate Mulgrew) make the choice to let him walk free, Desi Piscatella (Brad William Henke) is ultimately put down — shot in the head by one of his own trigger-happy riot men — at the end of the fifth season of Orange Is the New Black.

To many, Piscatella is the reason Litchfield 2.0 exists. After his »

Star Trek: Voyager Complete Series DVD Review

14 June 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Star Trek: Voyager hit airwaves at a time when television was a very different beast, but even considering a world that didn’t demand ratings in the same way as today’s standards would suggest, there were some serious question marks as this one progressed.

The show was obviously buoyed by the general Star Trek fan base, as well as the success of Star Trek: The Next Generation (which ended just as this one was kicking off), and the relative success of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (which started two seasons before this), but it lasted through the first couple of formative seasons largely because it was the highest rated show on upstart Upn, which had this as one of its initial offerings.

Much as everything Star Trek is bound to win people over, to some degree or another, Voyager was a pretty goofy effort for the first couple of years, »

Taystee Is the Real Star of ‘Orange Is the New Black’ (Column)

13 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not watched Season 5 of “Orange is the New Black,” which premiered June 9. If you want a non-spoiler review of the season, click here.

Season 5 of “Orange Is the New Black” may well be the show’s strongest season yet. As I wrote when I reviewed the season last week, the show typically defined by sprawl becomes sharper and more poignant when its canvas is limited to just three momentous days in Litchfield Penitentiary. Because TV shows carry with them their own inertia — that groove that sometimes becomes a rut, as shows figure out what satisfies their loyal viewers and are content to deliver that again and again — it’s often breathtaking when a drama shakes up its own comfort zone and drills down to the heart of its premise.

Up until now, “Orange Is the New Black” has emphasized survival for its characters and loss, as »

The Surprising Way Orange Is the New Black Resolves the Brutal Piscatella Storyline

12 June 2017 2:35 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: Big spoilers for the end of Orange Is the New Black season five below! One of the biggest reasons Orange Is the New Black is so celebrated is for the way its writers take characters who might be one-dimensional caricatures in any other show and turn them into layered, diverse, and complex individuals reflective of the real people in the prison system today. In season five, corrections officer Desi Piscatella (Brad William Henke) gets somewhat the same treatment, and the way his storyline ends is unexpected, to say the least. Throughout season four, Piscatella is the big villain (literally and figuratively) who seems to have one goal and one goal only while working at Litchfield Penitentiary: to make the inmates' lives a living hell. His brutal behavior is what pushes the inmates over the edge in the second-to-last episode of season four, when their peaceful protest in the cafeteria »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from episodes one through 10 of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black season five.]

Laura Prepon had two days to direct one of the most impactful scenes of the fifth season of Orange Is the New Black.

The moment came in the 10th episode, titled "The Reverse Midas Touch," when the riot happening at Litchfield took a dark turn down a prison hallway and into a janitor's closet.  A multi-season power struggle between Red (Kate Mulgrew) and head guard Piscatella (Brad William Henke) played out in harrowing form when Piscatella, after taking several inmates »

Orange Is the New Black Reveals Piscatella's Shocking Backstory

10 June 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In Orange Is the New Black season five, episode 10, titled "The Reverse Midas Touch," we finally solve the mystery of Piscatella (Brad William Henke), Wes Driscoll (Charlie Barnett), and the inmate Piscatella had killed while working in a maximum security prison - and it's not exactly what we were picturing. Warning: spoilers ahead if you haven't gotten that far in the season yet. Early on in season five, when Red (Kate Mulgrew) and Flores (Laura Gomez) find Driscoll's ID badge and read the report on Piscatella from max, it sounds like Driscoll is the person he had killed, but there is more to it. It turns out Driscoll was a maximum security inmate with whom Piscatella was romantically involved. They bonded over their love of crossword puzzles, and a relationship formed. Before long, they were sneaking forbidden kisses in the prison kitchen. But some fellow kitchen workers suspected something was »

Before You Watch Orange Is the New Black, Read "Skinhead" Helen's Thoughts

9 June 2017 1:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Goodbye, weekend plans. It's time for Orange Is the New Black season five! The new season takes place in the aftermath of Daya seizing Co Humphrey's gun over the course of three days. We got the chance to chat with Francesca Curran, who plays "Skinhead" Helen, and she has some choice words to describe the new episodes: violent, intense, wild, and, above all, incredible. Before you sit down to binge the new season, read up on everything Curran teased! Popsugar: Will we see the white supremacists band together with any other groups this season? Francesca Curran: We're a very limited group. If you don't fit our standards, if you don't fit our beliefs - and especially if you're not white - it's going to be really difficult to try to make an alliance with us. We've seen some attempts throughout season four and five of other groups trying to be on our good side, »
