The Joker Will Have a New Look when Gotham Returns

While many may know Cameron Monaghan for his role as Ian Gallagher on Shameless, he definitely making a name for himself for his role as Jerome Valeska Aka The Joker on Fox’s Gotham. Young talents like Monaghan and Robin Lord Taylor (who plays the Penguin) have propelled Gotham to a show that was once in question by many of its viewers to one of the better primetime shows on Fox. As far as the return of Gotham tonight, it looks like Monaghan’s character is getting a little crazier. Here’s what Cameron had to say about it: I really can’t wait

Check Out the Dudes Behind the New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Outside of Their Shells

  • VH1.com
View Photo Gallery

On Friday, America’s favorite mutant turtles are returning to theaters seven years after they were last seen on the big screen. Like the last time, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, are going to be computer-animated but also sharing the screen with live-action stars, such as Meghan Fox and Will Arnett in Michael Bay’s big budget (read: big explosions) version.

Sadly, that means fans of Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, and Alan Ritchson, won’t get to see the young actors in person in the film. And for Ploszek, they will not even hear him voice Leonardo. (Johnny Knoxville is taking the lead on vocals.)

But thankfully, we have a look at all the actors — minus the CGI — for those not familiar with the dudes portraying the reptiles on the big screen.

It really is a shame because fans of Ritchson may remember him from

“Shameless” Finale Recap: “To Butt Buddies!”

Before we start, I just have to say: Goddamn you, Shameless. Last week you lulled us into complacency with a spirited episode involving organ harvesting and bar brawls. And then you turn around and dickslap us with what many have been fearing all along: that Ian Gallagher has inherited his mother’s mental illness. It was agonizing to watch, all the more so because of the recognition on his siblings’ faces (they are all too familiar with depression) and because it came at the point where Mickey is finally all-in with his carrot-topped beau.

So I guess the ultimate point of this script-flipped season was that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

We start with a wall of ice – wait, is this Game of Thrones?! I knew agreeing to recap both shows in one night was a mistake!

At the hospital, Frank (William H. Macy) is waking up.

Comic-Con: Shameless Panel Recap; A Look Forward at Nudity and Backwards at Pee

The Gallagher family isn't necessarily a traditional one.  It's laced with sex, drugs and felonies.  At the heart, though, there is love.  Well, some of the time anyway.  As they approach season three, the cast---William H. Macy (Frank Gallagher), Emmy Rossum (Fiona Gallagher), Justin Chatwin (Steve/Jimmy), Jeremy Allen White (Lip Gallagher), Cameron Monaghan (Ian Gallagher)--- presented at Comic Con and Mike O'Malley (who acts on Glee and writes on Shameless) moderated the panel.  Hit the jump for a bullet point recap. Production on season three started last week. William H. Macy spoke on his transition to a series regular, "To use a theater analogy, we opened well, we got past the second night and now the stretch lays before us.  I'm having more fun than I ever have standing up." "These actors can invest those characters with authenticity, heart and humor." Mike O'Malley speaking about the cast.

During last week’s Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, the CBS, Showtime and CW networks had two days to present their newest series as well as revisit some of their biggest hits to talk about the future. Between the multitude of panels and the end-of-day cocktail hour with the network executives and showrunners, AfterElton grabbed an abundance of news of what’s to come in the coming months on some of your favorite shows.

Morning Meme: Ian Gets Dirty On "Shameless," Madonna Finds Lady Gaga "Interesting," and a Sneak Peek At "Glee"

Shameless executive producer John Wells says that audiences should expect to see a change in the way Ian Gallagher is portrayed this season. Cameron Monaghan, who plays him, turned 18, and so the show is no longer prohibited by federal law from showing him in frank sexual situations. “In the final episodes, we see him engaged romantically with a man and I loved it. (Monaghan) is not gay, but he has completely embraced the idea of this character.”

The interviews with Madonna keep leaking out, including this soundbite from Newsweek concerning her reaction to "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga. ""I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was ... interesting."

There are reports The Out Hotel NYC plans not only communal showers and room sharing, but also an all-male housekeeping staff "hopefully between the ages of 18 and 24, Latino,

The Year In Television: 2011's Break-Out TV Actors

This is the sixth in a multi-part series, The Year in Television 2011.

Not everyone can be a TV actor Mvp. You have to have charisma, talent, and you need a memorable part that plays to your particular strengths on a well-written show. Also, good lighting helps. This year we surveyed the television landscape to come up with ten people - both male and femaile - who we really thought broke out from the pack and made inordinate contributions to their respective shows. Some are newcomers, others have been acting for years. These are the break out TV actors of 2011 and, speaking of lighting, we'd like to shine a little more on them.

Aaron Ashmore, Warehouse 13

After years playing Jimmy Olsen on Smallville, Aaron Ashmore joined season 3 of Warehouse 13 as Steve Jinks, a gay Atf agent with the unique ability to tell whether someone is lying.

Cameron Monaghan Spills His 'Shameless' Secrets

Cameron Monaghan Spills His 'Shameless' Secrets
It's been a long wait for fans of Showtime's hit show "Shameless," but the loveably dysfunctional Gallagher family will be making their rowdy return to cable in January -- and Cameron Monaghan promises more family antics than ever. Monaghan, 18, plays closeted gay teenager Ian Gallagher, the third-oldest Gallagher sibling. But just because he's the most orderly Gallagher doesn't mean he's perfect. In fact, the words "perfect" and "Gallagher" will never be used in the same sentence again.

Ian smokes, curses like a sailor, loves porn and has lots of sex -- with his married Muslim boss Kash (Pej Vahdat). Typical teenage boy stuff, right? Last season ended with Ian being arrested after being caught in a stolen car with his older brother Lip (Jeremey Allen White). The Huffington Post caught up with Monaghan to give us some shameless scoop on Season 2.

So the last time we saw Ian, he had

Adam Pally is Ready For His "Happy Ending"

If there is one thing you can say for certain about the current crop of gay characters on U.S. television, it’s that teenagers rule the roost. From Kurt Hummel, Blaine Anderson and Dave Karofksy on Glee, to Teddy Montgomery on 90210, to Ian Gallagher on Shameless, to Marshall Gregson and Lionel Trane on United States of Tara, gay teen characters are sucking up most of the pop culture oxygen these days.

Fortunately for those interested in more adult gay characters, last week ABC debuted their new sitcom Happy Endings, which includes Max, a gay guy in his late twenties. Even better, Max isn’t your typical TV gay character. Let's just say Marc St. James from Ugly Betty probably wouldn't be having Max over to brunch anytime soon.

Indeed, "fabulous" is the last word that comes to mind when describing Max. Ditto “fashionable” or most any other

How Shameless stars came of age on West End stage

Maxine Peake and Anne-Marie Duff are among many stars whose careers began on the show. And a pair of casting directors were vital to its success, writes Vanessa Thorpe

There has been no shortage of good stories on the Chatsworth estate. The fictional council house development in Greater Manchester that forms the backdrop to Shameless, one of Britain's longest-running drama series, is packed with dodgy incident. Such as the end of series one when charming Steve, played by James McAvoy, hands Fiona, played by Anne-Marie Duff, the keys to her own house – but only after blowing it up.

Or the sombre scenes in the second series when Steve has to slip off to Amsterdam to avoid the law. Or perhaps the moment in the third series when lovable layabout Frank, played by David Threlfall, and Veronica, played by Maxine Peake, dig up a stash of fake gold. Oh, and a dead body.

Shameless 1.01 "Pilot" Review

I have never been one for watching the series' that ran on Showtime. I've seen 2 episodes of Dexter and bits of Californication, but I never really found that they kept me coming back for more. Well, Showtime has changed that with Shameless. Even from the previews alone I was hooked, and the pilot episode made it clear that this was a show worth sticking around for.

The shows first episode allowed us to get in touch with the characters we will see every episode and as the title suggests, each member of the Gallagher family has their own shameless quirks. Frank Gallagher (portrayed amazingly by William H. Macy) is not your run of the mill father. From his drinking problem to his abuse of disability, you actually seem to root for him as a person. Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum) is the oldest Gallagher kin and due to no mother around,
