See Scandal's Guillermo Díaz Take a Nasty Turn as the Infamous 'Dating Game Killer'

  • PEOPLE.com
Fans of ABC’s Scandal may never look at Huck the same way.

On Dec. 3, Guillermo Díaz — known for his role as an assassin-turned-fixer on the Shonda Rhimes drama — may make Investigation Discovery viewers squirm with an even darker turn as notorious rapist and serial killer Rodney Alcala.

Díaz stars in ID’s Dating Game Killer, a fictionalized retelling of the Texas-born murderer, who killed at least seven women and one girl in California and New York through much of the 1970s. Alcala’s true body count is unknown, but authorities believe he may have killed as many as 130 women

Reddit Movies’ Inability to Handle Sexual Harassment and Abuse Stories Is Part of the Problem

Wentworth Miller Reveals Crazy Pitch For Prison Break Season 6

It’s becoming quite obvious that Fox is benefiting greatly from nostalgia as of late. Having recently revived classics such as The X-Files and 24 as limited engagements, it came as no surprise that Prison Break, one of the shows that helped make the serialized approach an industry standard, was given similar treatment.

Originally having premiered in 2005, Paul Scheuring’s nail-biter of a creation told the story of two brothers – Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) – who got caught up in a conspiracy that went straight to the top. Over the course of four seasons, they escaped from two separate prisons, evaded the feds and unraveled various sinister plots. Not only that, but it served as the breakout roles (pun intended) for the likes of Miller, Robert Knepper and several others, as well as later being adapted to a video game.

Truth be told, I didn’t take

"Twin Peaks," Episode 16 Recap: You've Made My Heart So Full

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series."Finally," says the One-Armed Man a.k.a. Phillip Gerard (Al Strobel) about midway through Part 16 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival, right after a certain FBI Special Agent returns to the world of the living. It's been 13 episodes since we've seen full trace of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), though even then he wasn't entirely himself. (Being trapped for 25 years in the otherworldly Black Lodge has a way of tempering certain personality traits.) Now, however, he's "one hundred percent" (in his estimation, anyway), and there's certainly plenty of giddy pleasure to be had watching the energetic, Boy Scout-like Cooper of old take charge. But that presumes that this is the Dale Cooper of old, and it quickly becomes apparent that that's not the case.

"Twin Peaks," Episode 11 Recap: I Want To Get Us There In One Piece

  • MUBI
Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.A study in contrasts. That's the best way to describe Part 11 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which opens with a brief moment of doom-laden calm—three young boys playing catch happening upon the bruised and beaten but very much alive Miriam Sullivan (Sarah Jean Long)—then details, for its first half, the many ways in which the titular town, as well as the few-states-over locale of Buckhorn, South Dakota, are coming unglued. But this is dramatic incident Lynch-style, which means that the narrative rhythms are always shifting (violently, unpredictably), as if someone was continually revving a car engine into the red, but never in a calculable way.There's madness in such extremity, as there's insanity in the blood-curdling scream

'Twin Peaks' Recap: The Pie's the Limit

'Twin Peaks' Recap: The Pie's the Limit
Call it a hunch, but William Hastings probably isn't the only guy who had his mind blown by this week's Twin Peaks – he's just the messiest.

We're 11 episodes deep now, and David Lynch and Mark Frost's reborn show is so damned good that it often feels unfair to everything else on television. When these two are operating at their Peak powers, even the best and brightest of the competition can't hold a candle to the duo's ability to leap back and forth between comedy, tragedy, suspense and outright horror
