Fox's Rosewood is adding a Wire alum to its ranks. Domenick Lombardozzi, who most recently guested on Daredevil and The Good Wife, has joined the cast of the Morris Chestnut drama as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Despite being constantly surrounded by death, Rosewood is obsessed with life and

But there are always early signs, as your girlfriends will probably tell you, right ladies? Rutina Wesley also features in the film, playing Sanaa's happily single best friend. The Sony/Screen Gems thriller is directed »

Nurse Jackie was never quite a perfect show. Beautifully performed, certainly. Gutsy in its antiheroism. But bumpy. There were the super-heavy elements of Jackie's ongoing addiction and its ability to eclipse everything else in her life, sometimes balanced by the inviting warmth of Merritt Wever's performance as the irrepressible Zoey. But those things never paired that well with Akalitus's more slapstick humor, or Coop's chronic inappropriateness, or O'Hara's … anything. The show cycled through guest stars — Bobby Cannavale, Adam Ferrara, Morris Chestnut, Julie White, Laura Benanti, and, most recently, Tony Shalhoub and Mark Feuerstein — and seemingly high-stakes story lines. Yet despite the trail of death and destruction she left in her wake, nothing much seemed to stick for Jackie. Relapse is part of recovery, but Jackie relapsed more than she recovered, which is why her character's end felt fair, if not welcome. Addiction, man. It'll kill you.Or maybe »

The project hails from Todd Harthan, whose past TV credits include "Psych" and "Dominion." Chestnut recently inked a 3-picture deal with Sony’s Screen Gems, that...

For those who got a heaping ton of the heebie-jeebies from Michael Ealy's turn on the thankfully cancelled The Following, get ready for your not-so-long-awaited re-up. The first trailer from The Perfect Guy, courtesy of A Single Shot helmer David M. Rosenthal, features ample time witnessing Ealy, playing the obsessive, over-protective new boyfriend of Sanaa Lathan, putting his all into the role of a total, irrefutable creep, and that would be the exact pull of the story. There's a trashy zip to films like this, focused on the overblown melodramatic fears that go off into diabolical, often fatal directions. And that's Morris Chestnut, hot off some solid work on the previous season of Nurse Jackie, as Lathan's commitment-phobe ex-boyfriend who begins to have second thoughts about putting a ring on it when he sees Ealy romancing her. This, thankfully, looks more knowingly trashy than most of its ilk, and »

Well hello there, Michael Ealy. The trailer for the 41-year-old star's latest film The Perfect Guy debuted today, and the Internet has responded by totally losing it over the hotness that is Michael Ealy, who, we must admit, is looking pretty damn fine in the clip. Co-starring Sanaa Lathan and Morris Chestnut, the Tyger Williams-directed film follows a successful lobbyist (Lathan) who jumps into a passionate relationship with a handsome stranger (Ealy), but things take a turn for the worse when her ex-boyfriend (Chestnut) reenters her life and her new man begins to stalk her. The creepiest part of the trailer occurs at the very end when Lathan is »

Lathan plays successful lobbyist Leah Vaughn, who starts a passionate relationship with a handsome man (Ealy) who she meets at a bar. Things go well — until they go terribly wrong. The man she met turns out to be a closet psychopath. After her new beau brutally beats an innocent stranger, Leah begins to realize her perfect guy is far from ideal. As she returns to the arms of. »

Screen Gems loves their cheapo thrillers and the studio has an affinity for narratives like psycho girlfriend, psycho roommate, psycho hot dog vendor, etc. Some call it remaking horror movies into “soft thrillers.” And the studio also does well in serving the African American audience, often within these milieus. In fact, you could argue they are taking the sexy psychological thriller concept — films like “Basic Instinct” and “Fatal Attraction” — to a whole new level of relationship horror (see Idris Elba vehicle, “No Good Deed” which is about a psycho stalker). Their latest film, “The Perfect Guy” is an urban relationship thriller starring Sanaa Lathan, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut (psycho new boyfriend). The movie centers on a woman who exits a long-term relationship. Vulnerable and on the rebound, she meets what she thinks is “the perfect guy,” but soon, the bloom comes off the rose and things go south fast. »

Michael Ealy goes dark again! Coming off his portrayal as a serial killer with a killer smile in Fox's series "The Following" (which was unfortunately canceled and won't be returning next season), in the Sony/Screen Gems thriller, "The Perfect Guy," Ealy plays an all-too-perfect guy who initially wins over Sanaa Lathan, a woman recently separated from her previous partner, played by Morris Chestnut, who just isn't ready to give her all that she wants from a mate. As you've seen in the trailer above, Ealy's "perfect guy" soon turns out to be not quite what he initially presented himself to be. But there are always early signs, as »

It’s already time to start looking at what’s hitting in fall, and as the network upfronts wrap up, we can try to figure out what to watch, what to DVR, and what to avoid.

Yesterday, Fox unveiled its full 2015-16 schedule, and now the network has unleashed a slew of previews for its upcoming fall and midseason slate, with trailers for Minority Report, Rosewood, Lucifer, The Frankenstein Code, Grandfathered and The Grinder.
Let’s do some first impressions, shall we?
Minority Report is without a doubt the most high-profile freshman drama Fox has going for it. Picking up 10 years after the events of the blockbuster film, it follows a pre-cog who partners with a haunted detective to solve crimes and search for his missing twin brother. The trailer is overstuffed and suffers from some pretty poor-looking acting, but if there’s any semblance of a good story here, Minority Report could surprise. There’s no getting away from how derivative it feels, though, and I’m feeling echoes of Almost Human reverberating through the preview.
I’m just not buying the kind of sunny »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.
First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.
From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »
