The CBS drama series Extant is a mystery thriller about female astronaut Molly Woods (Halle Berry, also one of the show’s executive producers), who discovers she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction. When she meets Jd Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a cop of the future who stumbles upon a case that only she may have the answers to, she quickly realizes that they may be the only hope for survival of the human race. During a panel at the CBS Summer Junket, to discuss the network’s summer programming, actors Halle Berry and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, along with show creator Mickey Fisher and co-showrunners Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, talked about the story arc they’re exploring with Season 2, why this season is a reboot, upping the levels of action and heat, why the character of Jd Richter was named after the actor now playing him, »

School may be almost out, but that doesn’t mean Jeffrey Dean Morgan isn’t ready to offer some history lessons. The actor will soon appear in two period dramas about very different aspects of U.S. culture: History’s “Texas Rising” miniseries, about the formation of the Texas Rangers, and Lifetime’s “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe,” where he plays baseball great Joe Dimaggio. (Later this summer, he’ll head to the future and star opposite Halle Berry in the second season of CBS’ “Extant”).
Morgan was candid with Variety about his attraction to both projects during an interview at the London Hotel in West Hollywood. Here, he explains that Westerns make for good entertainment because there’s less dialogue (“That’s the sign of bad television, they’re over-explaining. In a Western, you’re never over-explaining.”) and speaks of the tumultuous love story that was Marilyn Monroe’s relationship with Dimaggio. »

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.
Last night was David Letterman’s last time ever hosting a late night program. Other late night hosts gave thanks, and Dave looked back at some favorite memories, with music by the Foo Fighters. If you can gauge which other hosts/networks like Dave the most based on who begged the audience to switch over to CBS, it’s Kimmel and Conan. Kimmel didn’t even air a live show last night, and Conan got Patton Oswalt to make enough references to Halloween 3 and The Andromeda Strain that everyone was forced to tune out.
Dave’s final entrance. Dave wishes Stephen Colbert all the best. The show will be in excellent hands. »

Los Angeles has the beaches, the hills and another outdoor wonder that every tourist visits: The Grove. With its Neo-Deco facades, chiming trolley and dancing fountains, the shopping center often has been likened to the Disneyland of retail. Except instead of Mickey and Minnie, it's Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry and Jessica Alba wandering the cobbled walkways around Barneys New York and the Apple Store. The Grove actually gets more visitors than the Happiest Place on Earth (20

Ever since “Alien” clamped itself upon our cultural psyches — much like the outer-space thriller’s frightening facehugger in 1979 — many of us have been patiently waiting for another actress to stand out in a role that equals, if not tops, Sigourney Weaver’s take-charge she-warrior Ripley: A female who is fierce without having to compromise her gender or be upstaged -- or worse, rescued -- by a male cohort. In other words, a sister who does it for herself while also saving the world. Many have tried, from Brigitte Nielsen (“Red Sonja”) and Halle Berry (“Catwoman,” Storm in the “X-Men” films) to Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) and Milla Jovovich (the “Resident Evil“ series). A few have come close, including Linda Hamilton in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” Uma Thurman in both “Kill Bill” volumes, Angelina Jolie in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and its sequel, Jennifer Lawrence in “The Hunger Games” franchise, »
