Danneel Ackles Rewrites Rachel's Tragic One Tree Hill Ending: 'She Deserves Some Happiness'

Sure, Rachel Gatina pulled a few stunts during her tenure on The WB/CW’s One Tree Hill — including steering a limousine off a bridge, nearly killing four people in the process — but even with all those wrongdoings under her belt, she still deserved better.

Danneel Ackles — who portrayed Rachel, and returns to The CW in tonight’s episode of Supernatural — certainly agrees. While many antagonists, including actual murderer Dan Scott, were given elaborate redemption arcs, Rachel’s story simply went from bad to worse. Following the show’s post-high school time jump, Rachel became addicted to heroin, stole money

Greta Gerwig Expresses Sincere Regret Over Woody Allen Film: "I Would Not Work For Him Again"

After winning a much-deserved Golden Globe for best motion picture on Sunday night, elated Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig headed to the press room. Along with fielding questions about her critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama, Gerwig was asked if she regrets working on Woody Allen's 2012 comedy To Rome With Love. Like many actors who've accepted roles in Allen's films before her, she did her best to side-step the question. "It's something that I've thought deeply about," she said, flustered. "I'm so thrilled to be here tonight as a writer and director and creator, and to be making my own movies and putting that forth. You know, it's something that I've thought deeply about and I care deeply about, and I haven't had an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or the other." It was a disappointing moment for many who championed Gerwig's accomplishments as a woman in Hollywood.

“We have concluded our investigation and Mark will not be returning to The Royals,” reads the statement. “The fourth season of the show has already completed production and will air as scheduled on E! in the spring.”

"Female writers would try to get the spot where the showrunner wouldn't sit as to not be touched. Often men would help out by sitting next to him, thus protecting the women," Wauchope wrote last month.

Bryan Greenberg on Why He Supported His 'One Tree Hill' Co-Stars Over Mark Schwahn Scandal (Exclusive)
Bryan Greenberg couldn't be more supportive of his former One Tree Hill co-stars for speaking out about the alleged sexual misconduct they endured by showrunner Mark Schwahn.

Et spoke with the 39-year-old actor over the phone last week, where amid his holiday preparations with his wife, Jamie Chung -- the two have partnered with Braun this season, and plan to give out several Series 9 and Series 7 this year as gifts -- he opened up about why he felt it was important to come forward and publicly praise the bravery of his female castmates.

Sophia Bush Gets Real About Her Chicago P.D. Exit: "I Couldn’t Do That Job Anymore”

After playing Detective Erin Lindsay for four seasons on NBC's Chicago P.D. series, actress Sophia Bush made her exit from the show in May. Her character's storyline was wrapped up by explaining that Erin would be moving to New York City to take a job with the FBI, breaking the hearts of loyal audiences everywhere. Bush has since signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to star in a new series, which caused some devoted fans to question whether that was the reason behind her decision to leave the procedural show. Bush responded to the speculation on Instagram in October, writing to a fan, "Took me a long time and a lot of hard work to get out of that show. Please don't demean my capabilities by degrading my position. I left because I wanted to. End of story." Despite Bush's comment about the exit, rumors soon started

‘House of Cards,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘Today Show’ and More: A Complete Guide To TV Rocked By Sexual Harassment Scandals

  • Indiewire
Hollywood’s sexual harassment scandals have had an immediate effect on the industry — and on TV viewers as well. As networks and studios are confronted with allegations of misconduct and assault by their stars, producers, and even executives, heightened publicity has also prevented them from sweeping such news under the rug.

Instead, from morning to primetime, broadcast, cable and streaming services have been faced with making big moves on some of their biggest properties. In the $1 billion morning show competition, both NBC’s “Today” and CBS’ “This Morning” fired key anchors. Netflix’s and Amazon’s signature, award-winning dramas are expected to return without their lead stars. Paramount Network planned to launch by leveraging the Weinstein brand — but that strategy is dead. And FX must now rebuild its comedy brand without the producer who inspired much of it.

Here’s a continually updated roundup of TV productions that have been

From John Lasseter to Matt Lauer, Finally No One Is Too Big to Fail — Opinion

From John Lasseter to Matt Lauer, Finally No One Is Too Big to Fail — Opinion
In October 2009, Kater Gordon’s writing career came to a sudden end. In the space of a year, she went from Matt Weiner’s personal assistant on “Mad Men” to his Emmy-winning co-writer of the season finale. Then, less than a month after standing next to Weiner on the Nokia Theatre stage, she was fired. Or, as a show insider put it: “Matt has reluctantly decided that their relationship has reached its full potential.” That awkward rationale highlighted the “Mad Men” narrative: It was Weiner’s show, and his whims were law.

Mad Men” continued for six more critically lauded seasons as Gordon faded from the news cycle and from the industry. Now imagine that story in 2017, with Gordon coming forward with her sexual harassment accusations against Weiner. Her story would have legs; he would be forced to deal with the charges, Peak TV be damned. All of which suggests
