‘Supernatural': Misha Collins Teases ‘Enormous Sacrifices’ Ahead of Season Finale

15 April 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As “Supernatural” heads towards its season 10 finale, star Misha Collins tells Variety that there are “enormous sacrifices” ahead as Castiel and Sam (Jared Padalecki) race to save Dean (Jensen Ackles) from the murderous effects of the Mark of Cain.

Below, Collins previews Castiel’s upcoming road trip with Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), his attempt to make amends with the Novak family, and whether Sam and Cas believe they can succeed at curing Dean — along with an update about Collins’ annual scavenger hunt, Gishwhes.

In the April 15 episode, “Book of the Damned,” Castiel and Metatron go on a road trip to find Castiel’s grace. I’m guessing it doesn’t go particularly smoothly?

Metatron’s personality hasn’t been improved much by becoming a human — in fact, maybe it’s exacerbated a little bit. He’s so excited and giddy about experiencing human sensations that he talks and natters even more than before, »

18 March 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Earlier this month, Sleepy Hollow showrunner Mark Goffman left the series after two seasons. The show's ratings were way down in season two and word was that the network would cancel Sleepy Hollow if a suitable replacement showrunner couldn't be found.

Today, Fox announced that Sleepy Hollow had been renewed for a third season of 18 episodes. Clifton Campbell, who created The Glades, will take over as showrunner.

A supernatural police drama, Sleepy Hollow follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a patriot who was killed 230 years ago. He finds himself resurrected in modern day and partners with a female police lieutenant. Unfortunately, the Headless Horseman has also returned. The cast includes Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Clancy Brown, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.

Here's the renewal press release:

‘Sleepy Hollow’ Star Orlando Jones Joins ‘The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’

4 March 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sleepy Hollow” star Orlando Jones has joined the cast of “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Jones joins Jessica Biel, Jason Sudeikis, Maisie Williams and Mary Steenburgen in the drama, which began production in New Orleans this week. Bill Purple will direct the pic from a script he wrote with Robbie Pickering. Justin Timberlake will compose and serve as music supervisor for the soundtrack. Biel is producing with Michelle Purple under their Iron Ocean Films banner.

Jones plays Cornelius Thibadeaux aka “Dumbass,” whose unfortunate moniker was bestowed by his strict and disapproving father. Described as an affable and loyal character, Dumbass takes on the seemingly incomprehensible job of helping introverted architect Henry (Sudeikis) build a raft for a spirited, homeless teen named Millie (Williams) to use to sail to a far away island, after Henry’s wife (Biel) is tragically killed in a car accident. »

Review: 'Drumline: A New Beat' - The Panthers Didn't Need an Encore (On DVD & VOD Today)

3 March 2015 11:04 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The original “Drumline” was lightning in a bottle when it premiered in theaters over a decade ago in 2002. The combination of a star-making turn from Nick Cannon and the fact that it more or less made popular the conceit of pushing the traditional sports movie story through the filter of something that’s not a traditional sport was uniquely compelling, helped even more by a terrific supporting cast (Orlando Jones, Zoë Saldana, Leonard Roberts), dynamically shot drumming sequences, and its Hbcu setting. It wasn’t a classic by any means and it had its schmaltzy moments, but “Drumline” was really good and had genuine heart, and that shined through; it did for college football half-time »

Sleepy Hollow, Ep. 2.18, “Tempus Fugit”: Let’s do the time warp again

23 February 2015 8:45 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sleepy Hollow, Season 2, Episode 18, “Tempus Fugit

Written by Mark Goffman

Directed by Paul Edwards

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

It’s hard to regard Sleepy Hollow’s second season as anything other than a disappointment. While it never crossed the threshold into being a bad show, what was once the most loopy and good-humored offering on broadcast television transformed into something that was frequently a chore to watch. There was no major single flaw in the series, but multiple bad decisions that were allowed to fester and detract from the things the show did well. Irving’s constantly wavering allegiances and relevance, the introduction of a character no one particularly liked in Hawley, a Moloch plan that lacked the complexity of earlier efforts, and pushing Katrina down a flight of misguided plots—all of these gave the feeling that Sleepy Hollow no longer had a steady hand behind the wheel, »

Sleepy Hollow: Cancel or Renew for Season Three?

23 February 2015 8:03 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, Fox touted Sleepy Hollow as a hit series of the 2013-14 season and gave it an early renewal. How are things looking a year later, as we come to the end of the second season? Should the series be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

A supernatural police drama, Sleepy Hollow follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), a patriot who was killed 230 years ago. He finds himself resurrected in modern day and partners with a female police lieutenant. Unfortunately, the Headless Horseman has also returned. The cast includes Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Clancy Brown, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.

Sleepy Hollow debuted in September of 2013 to a very healthy 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.1 million viewers. The ratings dropped quite a bit over the course of the season -- hitting a low of a 2.2 in »

‘Sleepy Hollow’ Finale: Tom Mison Talks Game-Changing Season Ender

23 February 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sleepy Hollow” is heading into its season two finale with the highest stakes imaginable — in last week’s episode, Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) was transported back to the 18th century, where she was immediately imprisoned for failing to produce free papers for the British soldiers occupying Sleepy Hollow at the time. To make matters worse, her stint on the wrong side of the bars means that she’s unable to prevent Katrina Crane (Katia Winter) from attempting to kill her husband, Ichabod (Tom Mison) in order to stop his resurrection in the modern day, which would thwart Ichabod and Abbie’s mission to join as Witnesses and avert the apocalypse. No big deal, right?

Variety spoke with “Sleepy Hollow” star Tom Mison ahead of the climactic season finale to find out how Abbie and Ichabod will work together in the past, and what the repercussions might be for their future »

Orlando Jones Options Rights to Controversial Cult Deprogrammer, Ted Patrick's Life Story

6 February 2015 7:57 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

This is a man I wasn't at all familiar with before today, strangely enough; but after a little research on him, his story reads quite fascinating, and should indeed make for a worthwhile film. Orlando Jones has optioned the rights to the real-life story of Ted Patrick - considered to be the "father" of modern deprogramming (a specialist with a mission to destroy cults and pseudo-religions). Although his background includes only a high school education, he is/was considered an authority on new religions, and has been praised for his book "Let Our Children Go," published in 1976, in which he details factual stories about his life's mission to rescue young people »
