Post Mortem: Arrow Bosses on Oliver's Decision, A.T.O.M.'s Future and More

25 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wednesday’s Arrow.

On Wednesday night’s episode of Arrow, Oliver Queen once again escaped death — thanks, this time, to a twist more surprising than magical herbs and snow.

Rather than killing Queen, Ra’s al Ghul announced that he wanted the archer to replace him as the leader of the League of Assassins. (Sorry, Nyssa.)

12 actors who could play The Saint in ITV's new series

25 February 2015 5:40 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's been long in the works, but ITV has now confirmed that it's ordered a pilot for a revival of The Saint.

Set to go into production in 2016, this new take from writers Ed Whitmore (Arthur & George) and Chris Lunt (Prey) promises to bring Simon Templar - a roguish Robin Hood for the modern day - to a whole new audience.

But who could possibly follow in the esteemed footsteps of Sir Roger Moore (and Ian Ogilvy... and, erm, Val Kilmer) in bringing Leslie Charteris's gentleman thief to life? Digital Spy has picked out 12 potentials.

1. James Norton

Last year, Norton delivered two spectacularly disparate performances - as reprehensible Tommy Lee Royce on BBC One's Happy Valley and as 'sexy vicar' Sidney Chambers on ITV's Grantchester. Take a little of Royce's edginess, add a dash of Chambers's charm and you might just have yourself the perfect Saint.

The CW Casts ‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Chris Wood in Julie Plec’s ‘Cordon’ Pilot

24 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW, known to bring back previous players, has cast its first pilot for the 2015-16 cycle, Variety has learned.

Chris Wood, who had substantial arcs in both in Julie Plec’s “Vampire Diaries” and the CW’s “Carrie Diaries,” is set for the role of Jake, a former renegade turned cop, in Plec’s upcoming drama “Cordon.”

The series follows an epidemic that breaks out in Atlanta, leaving the large city quarantined and those stuck on the inside fighting for their lives. The drama tells the story of loved ones torn apart, and how the society that grows inside the cordon reveals both the devolution of humanity and the birth of unlikely heroes.

Jake (Wood) is among those trapped inside the cordon, and finds himself there to protect the ones who need him most, even though his first instinct is to save himself.

David Gyasi (“Interstellar”) will play Lex, »

The Vampire Diaries Recap: Get Through Today

20 February 2015 6:35 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I haven’t yet recovered from last week’s traumatic good-bye to Sheriff Forbes, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned from our beloved show, it’s that death stops for no one. (Oh, wait, flip that: It’s that death stops no one … until now, that is.) With our gang mourning one of their own, we watched them each grapple with mortality (and immortality) in different ways, all directed beautifully by the one and only Julie Plec. So let’s get to it, since life is short (or indefinite, or whatever).Three seconds in and mini-Caroline is already breaking my heart. “But what if you die and I’m still here?” “Then you’ll be all grown-up, and you won’t need me.” This moment is such an important one in the life of every parent and child, and watching it now, after Caroline’s mom is already gone … Minus 12. (Also, »

Ep Jenni Konner on How a First-Season Scene About a Boy Helped 'Girls' Find Its Footing

19 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.

Since it first premiered in 2012, Girls has told the harsh and hilarious stories of four twenty-something women learning how to navigate life after college in New York City. For four seasons, we’ve watched these awkward girls evolve into slightly less awkward young women -- in part thanks to the boys -- err, men -- in their lives.

For Hannah -- played by show creator Lena Dunham -- that’s Adam (Adam Driver), an aloof, sexually aggressive part-time actor who starts the series as Hannah’s friend with benefits but later becomes her boyfriend.

‘The Vampire Diaries': Julie Plec Reveals Why She Was ‘Terrified’ for Directorial Debut

19 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After 125 episodes and six seasons of “The Vampire Diaries,” Julie Plec, who also serves as showrunner on spinoff “The Originals” and has another pilot in development at the CW, is taking her turn in the director’s chair — a daunting, yet perfectly fit, seat that’s been a long time warming up for Plec.

“I had a moment where I wrote a movie script and it was my first movie job and I was very excited to do it, and my only goal was really not to get fired off of it,” says Plec, who got her start on “Dawson’s Creek” and has worked with frequent co-producer Kevin Williamson on films including “Cursed,” “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” and the “Scream” franchise. “In writing it, I realized that if and when they ever made the movie, I probably would never get to sit down with the director and tell him what »
