Ballots are due Monday for both the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes, so it’s a good time to salute some underdogs in the TV acting categories. (Come to think of it, TV itself is an underdog during the film-centric awards season.) Year after year, the TV noms include the usual suspects from hit series. And while they deserve the recognition, so do a lot of other terrific actors who are worthwhile but don’t make the cut. So here’s a salute to some talented individuals and ensembles, with a reminder that good work is its own reward. Well, good work and residuals.
It’s not the kind of role that wins awards, because he rarely has scenery-chewing moments. But Harmon’s character and performance are the glue that holds the show together and keep audiences coming back, making it one of TV’s top-rated shows. »

Happy birthday, Ian Somerhalder.
Everyone's favorite bad-vampire-turned-good-guy (or so we thought ...) turns 35 on Sunday (Dec. 8), and to celebrate the big day, Zap2it looked back at Somerhalder's career and picked his five best roles so far.
5. Somerhalder got his start on the WB's "Dawson's Creek" spinoff series, "Young Americans." He played Hamilton Fleming, the son of his school's dean and dated a girl who disguised herself to look like a boy in order to get the attention of her absent mother.
4. Taking a crack at movies, Somerhalder starred with James Van Der Beek in the dramedy movie, "The Rules of Attraction." He played Paul Denton, a bisexual who develops an attraction to Van Der Beek's Sean, who eventually rejects him.
3. During Season 3 of "Smallville," Somerhalder played Adam Knight (formerly known as Chad Nash), a resurrected teen with a bleeding eye problem sent by Lionel Luthor to spy on Clark Kent and Lana Lang. »

Paul Walker died yesterday in a tragic car accident, and we're still reeling from the devastating news. Walker has been a favorite of ours since he appeared alongside Reese Witherspoon in 1998's Pleasantville. A solid actor with all-American looks and a big heart, Walker will always hold a special place in our hearts.

In the wake of his heartbreaking passing, let's remember what makes it impossible to forget Walker. Pleasantville (1998) Source: New Line Cinema I saw Pleasantville in theaters, and even in black and white, Walker was irresistible.

The first time audiences really set their eyes on Paul Walker was in the 1998 dramedy “Pleasantville,” about two siblings (Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire) transported inside a 1950s sitcom. The world they encounter is a cookie-cutter, black-and-white suburb straight out of “The Donna Reed Show,” and Walker played the handsome high school love interest for Witherspoon. With his hair slicked back and Ken doll dimples, Walker, 24 at the time, brought to mind a young Tab Hunter. His character was meant to be a squeaky-clean boy next door, but he didn’t stay that way. On a drive-in movie theater date, Witherspoon lunges at him and he experiences a sexual awakening.
Walker, who died on Saturday at 40 in a car crash in Valencia, Calif., was the dreamboat of choice for a generation of girls (and some boys) raised on “Saved by the Bell” and the WB Network. It’s no coincidence »

Fade in on January 1999. I’m 14 years old. Future teen classics “Varsity Blues” and “She’s All That” are released within two weeks of each other. They feature relatable stars like James Van Der Beek and Freddie Prinze Jr., respectively, as well as a rising twenty-something actor named Paul Walker, who was coming off a supporting turn in another ’90s gem, “Pleasantville.” Walker basically played the same character in all three films — a good-looking guy who was popular with both the ladies and his teammates. The sort of All-American athlete that guys aspired to be and girls aspired to date. »

This is going to be a hard one to specifically review because it’s the kind of episode that doesn’t have much to offer in terms of story, but it gets by on simply being a clever piece of television. “Bedtime Stories” is How I Met Your Mother experimenting to find a new way to inject some fun into its aging formula. I might think Himym is aging quite well, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t use some sprucing up now and then. What the show does in this case is take the entirety of the episode’s dialogue and put it to iambic heptameter. You’re going to laugh quite a bit, but not because of the usual jokes Himym tells. No, “Bedtime Stories” is funny in the way it takes classic tropes of the show and spinning them with rhyme. It’s a snazzy new »

The all-rhyming episode that "How I Met Your Mother" tried Monday (Nov. 25) had a very high potential for disaster. So would a review of the episode that attempted pull off the same trick.
So you're not getting the latter -- and the good news is, "Bedtime Stories" was actually a pretty nice episode of late-period "Himym." The conceit -- Marshall has to rhyme to get Marvin to sleep -- worked perfectly well to set up a trio of flashback stories centered on Ted, Robin and Barney.
The best of the bunch, by a good distance, was Robin's. Ted's and Barney's were mostly variations on long-running character traits, although seeing the various bros who made up the Players' Roundtable in Barney's story was amusing. Robin's tale, though, imparted some new information: Already down from a breakup, she runs into her ex Simon (James Van Der Beek), who's now engaged, and hits bottom, »
Warning: We're about to run down the biggest TV moments from Monday night. If you don't want to be spoiled on a particular show, skip to the next! How I Met Your Mother: Tonight, Himym fans we're gifted with a season nine peak: an entirely rhymed episode and the return of James Van Der Beek! Marshall couldn't get Marvin to fall asleep, so the soon-to-be judge decided that he would make up his own rhyming bedtime stories, starring our five favorites. The episode was definitely a clever one, however there were no new Mother-revelations. Boooo! Hiss! On the upside, we did get another amazing appearance from Robin's old boyfriend Simon Tremblay and we learned, via flashback, that the Splish Splash »
Tonight’s How I Met Your Mother was an impressive feat to behold
Where three stories were told in rhyme, but were you all sold?
It was an hour that seemed straight from a bucket list
And since it’s the final season, well, you get the gist.
So here’s a little recap of all the action seen
Don’t worry, the rhymes end here, and I tried to keep it clean
The episode began with Marshall trying to get Marvin to sleep while riding a bus full of distractions and noise. And since he’d forgotten Marvin’s storybook in the truck, »
