2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The appeal of a guest role is obvious as an actor can often make the maximum impact in minimum screen time. That’s why previous winners love to drop in on other shows, such as Hank Azaria showing up on “Ray Donovan,” Michael J. Fox popping over to “The Good Wife” and Brad Garrett showing his dramatic range on “Law & Order: Svu.”

Last year, Reg E. Cathey took home the prize for his work on “House of Cards” after two nominations. He’s likely to receive another nomination for the role of Freddy, though his co-star Colm Feore could also figure into the mix.

There are certain shows that tend to do well time and again in the guest category. One is “The Good Wife,” which has a plethora of potential nominees, from the aforementioned Fox to Denis O’Hare and Blair Underwood, both involved in a powerful gun control episode. »

‘Veep,’ ‘Scandal’ and Other Shows Play Politics in Election Year

6 June 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s election stories have been riddled with outlandish plot twists and Machiavellian protagonists who often act more like antagonists. And that’s not even including what’s happening on the scripted TV series that are supposed to be making this stuff up.

“On ‘Veep,’ we’re trying to find something that stretches reality to its edge, but could happen. And then, seven months later, these candidates are doing something like this,” says David Mandel, who this year took over as showrunner of the Emmy-winning HBO comedy about vice president-turned president Selina Meyer (played by Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her staff. “I think we’re tapping into a certain amount of D.C. hypocrisy and sometimes headlines happen and it can be a wonderful or — if you’re an American citizen — horrible coincidence that politicians are doing things just like what we came up with on ‘Veep.’”

How Scandal, Veep and House of Cards have fallen prey to Trump madness

12 May 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Political dramas and satire are competing with a wild election year – and with truth proving stranger than fiction, it’s taken a toll on ratings and relevance

It’s been over a week since Donald Trump’s last remaining rivals surrendered and he became the presumptive Gop presidential nominee. On Shonda Rhimes’ ABC political drama Scandal, though, Republican elites just managed to maneuver a lightly fictionalised version of Trump out of the primary. Last Thursday’s episode was surreal to watch, as the show built suspense around vulgar, bigoted billionaire outsider Hollis Doyle’s (Gregg Henry) rise to frontrunner status – teasing a disastrous outcome that had already happened in real life.

Despite its attempts to mirror reality, Scandal will end its fifth season on Thursday night amid series-low ratings. It’s struggling to hold the attention of viewers who are inundated with election news every day, their appetites exhausted by prime time. »

'Scandal' Alum Dan Bucatinsky Joins 'Gilmore Girls' Revival

3 May 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The cast of the "Gilmore Girls" revival keeps growing, with actor Dan Bucatinsky joining the series in an undisclosed role.

Bucatinsky, who's most known for his part on ABC's "Scandal," shared the news on social media this week, posting two photos to his Instagram account from the Stars Hollow set. The actor tagged "Gilmore" star Alexis Bledel in the snaps -- and posed with the actress in one of them -- indicating that his role involves Rory in some way. (He also said that Lauren Graham's Lorelai was not there, so perhaps this is for a Rory arc separate from her mother?)

At work bright and early with the one and only @alexisbledelofficial great crew of this classic. #Netflix

What a blast today on #gilmoregirls with @alexisbledelofficial -- #LaurenGraham missed all the fun.

5 Signs ‘Scandal’s’ Gop Primary Race Is Written by Hard-Core Democrats

31 March 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It was only a matter of time before Shonda Rhimes jumped head first into the 2016 presidential race in her political juggernaut “Scandal.” The fictional race on the ABC hit show is so close to the real one, it comes complete with its own Trump-like character, Hollis Doyle, an over-the-top billionaire Republican candidate with a penchant for the dramatic, played by Gregg Henry. There are other hard-to-miss parallels, including a former First Lady running for president whose former husband, the current commander-in-chief, was caught having sex in the Oval Office with a women he wasn’t married to.

He then proceeds to question the fact that Mellie is »

‘Scandal’ Cast Reacts to Tonight’s Episode: Mellie Gets Trump’d, Jake Is a Snake, Abby Betrays Cyrus

17 March 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched “Scandal’s” March 17 episode, titled “I See You.”

The tables have turned. “Scandal” brought out a whole new set of claws from a few unsuspecting Gladiators on Thursday night’s episode, which saw Abby (Darby Stanchfield) going behind Cyrus’ (Jeff Perry) back to get him fired.

After the past few episodes in which Cyrus has been betraying President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to try to create a new president in Latino politician Frankie Vargas (Ricardo Chavira), Abby caught on to Cyrus’ master plan so she decided to give him a taste of his own medicine and betray him right back. With her eye on Cyrus’ spot in the White House, Abby went right into the Oval Office to tell Fitz what Cyrus has been up to and Fitz told her that if she wants his job, she had to fire him — and she did. »
