You don’t win consecutive Teen Choice awards without putting in a little time at the gym — and Linda Hunt’s NCIS: Los Angeles alter ego does precisely that in this exclusive photo from an upcoming episode of the Tuesday CBS drama.
In a fun moment from the Oct. 23 episode titled “Dead Body Politic,” the NCIS boss lady joins Callen and Sam for a morning workout, and from the look on Sam’s face, he knows he better keep up the pace!

In an unusual move, NCIS: Los Angeles is going political this fall and has cast Rachel Ticotin as a political figure for its new venture. Is it a shock that politics would come up in a television series, especially so close to the election? Not really, but this will still be an unusual episode for NCIS: La in how the politics will be presented. Some viewers may even be put off by the subject matter the cast and Ticotin will be acting out. Personally, I think its brave what the show will be trying to do and kudos for Ticotin for taking on the role given to her.
Showrunner Shane Brennan told TVLine Ticotin would be playing Monica Tenez in Season 4’s fourth episode. Tenez is, as previously mentioned, a politician, but more than that she’ll be representing an ideal presidential candidate. Brennan says it best: “[Tenez is] the sort »

According to CBS, the "True Blood" actress will reprise her "Good Wife" role as the quirky Elsbeth Tascioni.
The details of her appearance are still a mystery, but TVLine is reporting that she'll have a multi-episode arc on the upcoming season.

Maria Thayer has been cast as Nick's ex-girlfriend on "New Girl." Thayer will appear in the Halloween episode of the Fox comedy as Nick's (Jake Johnson) ex-girlfriend who broke his heart in college. »

TVLine has learned that the actress will guest-star in the fourth episode of Season 4 as Monica Tenez, whom showrunner Shane Brennan describes as “the sort of candidate that everyone would love to vote for this year — and by that I mean, if you looked at the Occupy movement and the general mood towards politicians and their dysfunctionality, here’s a candidate that you would love to vote for.”

So when it came to remaking it, the obvious questions were whether audiences would know it all too well and whether the filmmakers would re-create it all too reverently.
We didn't want to feel like we were sat in that Rekall chair being injected with something so familiar it wasn't at all exciting.
Thankfully, director Len Wiseman steers clear of replicating the earlier version and delivers a visual treat that, as seen on The Giant Screen digital cinema in Birmingham, blended CGI with practical sets as convincingly and seamlessly as the story itself blends truth and fantasy. You really cannot tell what is real and what isn't, thanks to modern filmmaking technology. For the viewer to have their own 'is this real?' experience on top »

Paul Verhoeven's 1990 Total Recall, based on Philip K Dick's short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, was a lively dystopian sci-fi thriller set on Earth and Mars run by an authoritarian government that exaggerated the influences of a rebel force in order to remain in power. Directed by Len Wiseman (best known as a special effects expert and as director of the dismal Underworld vampire films), this remake is a dull movie. It largely sticks to the original's plot but is set entirely on our planet, now run as the United Federation of Britain, with two chief centres – a version of London and, on the other side of the globe, the Colony, which is little different from the polluted Los Angeles of Blade Runner. The two parts are connected by a lift that goes through the Earth's core. Colin Farrell is an unsatisfactory replacement for Arnold Schwarzenegger »

The remake of Paul Verhoeven’s violent and groundbreaking science-fiction epic Total Recall will be released at the end of the month (read our review Here), and last night the film had its UK premiere in London. Underworld and Die Hard 4.0′s Len Wiseman directs a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel in roles made popular by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin respectively.
Our very own Dan Bullock was amongst those on the unique white carpet there to witness filmmakers and actors behind the (re)making of a beloved classic, parade their talents and devilish good looks to the waiting fans and flashing paparazzi cameras. We’re able to bring you some footage from last nights prestigious event. Total Recall co-stars Bryan Cranston, Bokeem Woodbine, John Cho, Bill Nighy and Will Yun Lee, and invades cinemas 29th August.

If you were brave enough to see the modern and serious remake of Total Recall on its opening weekend, then you will love our Total Recall Redux Drinking Game we came up with to help make it more… palatable? I am in no way condoning you sneak in a case of your favorite hard liquor but a lot of help is needed to make Total Recall go down smoothly. Let me remind you that this was Not on our 25 Films We Want to See in 2012. So don’t blame us if you didn’t like it. But it’s not unsalvageable!
Now yes, I realize I am asking you to see the film again, but it will be worth it if you get hammered and maybe you’ll eventually hallucinate all of the Mars stuff they decided to take out of the film. As we all know the 1990 original Recall, »

As is pretty inevitable with any remake, this week’s hot new release Total Recall is currently undergoing a million and a half comparisons to the 1990 original. Both movies, based on a Philip K. Dick story called “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale,” concern a man named Douglas Quaid who is plagued by disturbing nightmares and visits a service called Rekall that promises to improve your life by implanting new memories into your brain. Both movies also star an incredibly good-looking cast that make us look forward to a future in which everyone’s bodies will be perfectly toned. Since we’ve yet to catch the new flick, we here at VH1 Celebrity are going to tackle this comparison a little differently: by superficially comparing stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin to Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Oh, and we haven’t forgotten baddies Ronny Cox and Bryan Cranston, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger turns 65 years old today -- and with a remake of his classic 1990 flick "Total Recall" out this week, what better time to check in with the original cast?By the time the former Governator starred as construction worker/secret agent Doug Quaid in the Mars movie, Arnold had a steady stream of hits under his belt ... including "Conan the Barbarian," "Terminator," "Predator" and "Twins." He'd go on to have five children with now-estranged wife Maria Shriver, hold office as the Governor of California from 2003-2011 and star in movies like "True Lies," "Batman and Robin" and "The Expendables." He also fathered a secret child with his maid.But what about the rest of the cast?

It sure looks like Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel make for quite a twisted threesome in Len Wiseman’s “Total Recall” reboot. I don’t think there was this much interaction in the original movie once Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin met and did battle in the hallway of a hotel. Of course, when you have Kate Beckinsale in your movie playing a sexy villain, I suppose it would be insane to kill her off too quickly. Check out a new clip from “Total Recall”, people who enjoy checking out clips from Hollywood reboots. A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall – a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led – goes wrong and he finds himself on the run. Besides the three bickering kids, the film co-stars Bryan Cranston, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is like a big old lump of Austrian marmite: you either love him or hate him. In 1990 he was on a roll, off the back of of Terminator (1984), Commando (1985), Predator (1987), The Running Man (1987) and Twins (1988), none of which had made his numerous detractors question their stance. What Schwarzenegger needed was a film with a brain and a role that would offer him more than an excuse to flex his muscles, and Total Recall was exactly that. Based on Phillip K Dick’s short story ‘We Can Remember It For You Wholesale’ and adapted by Ronald »

In case you never saw the original “Total Recall”, the folks behind the rebooted “Total Recall” has a convenient two-minutes plus featurette that fills you in on the film’s plot. Nothing too spoiler-y and such, so feel free to take a gander at it, take a ganders. (By the way, from Rachel Ticotin to Jessica Biel? Seems a tad … plain, don’t you think? And you’re talking to a pretty big fan of Jessica Biel’s, er, talents here, folks.) Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. »
Total Recall: Ultimate Rekall Edition
Total Recall is arguably a film that sits firmly in the domain of cinematic nostalgia and has definite cult status. People look at the remake that is currently being publicised and as usual some look forward to it and some complain that it’s a remake that is just not needed. I think my view is that it’s a remake that needs to be done right. The original, while good, is a flawed throwback to eighties schlock sci-fi classics but got lost in translation of constant re-writes and ever changing directors; Strangely though it still holds up and for its time is quite an ambitious tale.
I’m sure we all know the story of Total Recall by now, »
