It turns out Archie Panjabi is never that far from the Nsa.
Remember all of the shenanigans they pulled on The Good Wife?
Well, Panjabi is of the mind that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and is jumping on board Blindspot Season 2 in a major recurring role in which she'll be playing a member of the sneaky group.
Not just a member, but the head of a secret division of the Nsa that has been tracking Jane Doe from afar.
How much more secret can you possibly get than the Nsa?!
It appears we're about to find out.
This is Panjabi's first major role since leaving The Good Wife a year before the series ended. Her character, Kalinda, walked out and was never seen again.
Panjabi is all about secrecy.
She was also tapped as the lead in a new pilot up for consideration this fall, The Jury, »

Someone else had had their eye on Jane Doe. The Good Wife alumna Archie Panjabi has been tapped for a major recurring role in Season 2 of NBC’s thriller drama Blindspot. She will play the head of a secret division of the Nsa that has been tracking the Jane Doe case from afar.

25 years ago today, audiences first saw Kevin Costner’s turn as Robin Hood on the big screen. It was on June 14, 1991 that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves opened in theaters. Facing off against Costner’s heroic outlaw was Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, just three years after he made his first movie appearance in a role that would become a new classic villain, Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Rickman and Morgan Freeman got critical approval for their performances. Costner and Christian Slater, not so much. Both were nominated for Golden Raspberry Awards for Robin Hood, for Worst Actor and Worst Supporting Actor, respectively. Costner “won” his award, while Slater “lost” to Dan Ackroyd in Nothing but Trouble. Also part of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ legacy: “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You.” Believe it or not, the theme ballad that Bryan Adams bleated out for this movie earned him an Oscar nomination. But Raspberries or no Raspberries, Oscars or no Oscars, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves found its audience. It was the second-highest grossing movie of 1991, beaten only by Terminator 2: Judgement Day. And it was viewed countless times on VHS for years after that. Other notable June 14 happenings in pop culture history: • 1940: Jimmy Stewart film The Mortal Storm opened in theaters. • 1958: The indoor Alice in Wonderland ride opened next to the Mad Tea Party teacups ride in Disneyland. It was also the day the Columbia Sailing Ship first took passengers around Tom Sawyer Island. • 1959: The Matterhorn Bobsleds, Submarine Voyage, and the Monorail opened at Disneyland. Over 2,000 celebrities, members of the press, and dignitaries attended, including Vice President Richard Nixon. • 1965: Paul McCartney recorded the song “Yesterday” at what is now known as Abbey Road Studios in London. McCartney recorded it without the rest of the group, just with a string quartet, his vocals, and an acoustic guitar, making it essentially the first solo performance by the band. He recorded the song in two takes. • 1969: John Lennon and Yoko Ono pre-recorded an interview with David Frost that would air on July 10 that year. Lennon said in the interview, “We're trying to sell peace, like a product, you know, and sell it like people sell soap or soft drinks.” • 1970: Eric Clapton’s new band, Derek and the Dominos, gave their first live performance, at London’s Lyceum Theatre. • 1972: Simon & Garfunkel reunited to perform “Bridge Over Troubled Water” at a fundraising concert for presidential candidate George McGovern at New York’s Madison Square Garden. • 1980: The Pretenders fired bassist Pete Farndon, whose drug use had led to an increasingly strained relationship with his bandmates. • 1980: Billy Joel began six weeks atop the Billboard album chart with Glass Houses. • 1985: Family Feud, which had debuted in 1976, aired its final episode on ABC until CBS re-launched the game show in 1988. • 1989: The game Tetris was released for Game Boy in Japan. A North American release followed in July. • 1990: CBS, which had been the national broadcaster for the NBA since 1973, televised an NBA game for the final time. It was Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Detroit Pistons and Portland Trail Blazers. • 1996: Jim Carrey movie The Cable Guy opened in U.S. and Canadian theaters. • 2002: The Bourne Identity and the Sarah Michelle Gellar Scooby-Doo movie opened in theaters. • 2003: Helen Mirren had the order of Dame bestowed upon her when Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II published the list of those she’d chosen to promote to the Order of the British Empire. Three years later, Mirren portrayed Elizabeth II on film in The Queen. Sting and 007 actor Roger Moore were also conferred with the title of “Sir” on this day. • 2011: Andy Grammer released his self-titled debut studio album. Birthdays: Juno writer Diablo Cody (turns 38 today), singer Boy George (55), Reign actor Torrance Coombs (33), Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale (27), actor-motivational speaker J.R.

Ellen Barkin is 62. Sixty. Two. Trust me, you’re going to need to remind yourself of that mere moments into Animal Kingdom, TNT’s scorching, action-packed new drama based on the critically acclaimed 2010 Australian film starring Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver and Blindspot’s Sullivan Stapleton. Barkin — all tousled locks, burnished skin and plump pout — also rocks skyscraper heels, skinny jeans and plunging tanks like a boss as Janine “Smurf” Cody, matriarch of a crime family that is literally family. Though Smurf sits out the actual heists that have made her crew filthy rich, she rules her grown sons — … Continue reading →

Over the past five months, Vin Diesel has shared numerous photos from the set of his long-awaited sequel XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, as production took place, under the direction of D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye). The actor has always given his fans special sneak peeks from whatever project he's working on at the time, and XXX 3 was certainly no different. But that has now come to an end. Earlier today, the actor shared one final photo from the set, revealing that production has wrapped. Clearly, he saved the best, and craziest, photo for last.
The set photo was posted to the actor's Instagram page, which will likely have fans scratching their heads for quite some time. The photo features Vin Diesel riding a dirtbike...Underwater! How did Xander Cage plunge into the water with his dirtbike? That's a question for another day. Hopefully we'll get a glimpse at this »
The “Blindspot” Season 1 finale is upon us, and we have plenty of questions going into the final hour, including whether Jane Doe really is Taylor Shaw, following last week’s deathbed confession that Weller’s father apparently did kill Taylor as a child, leaving her “under the fort.” If that’s true, then who is Jane?
Regardless of her real identity, Jane is running out of people to believe in, after Oscar shot and killed Mayfair in Episode 22 to prevent the disgraced FBI boss from revealing the truth about Jane’s unwitting frame job. In Variety‘s exclusive sneak peek from the May 23 season finale, we see Jane reach out to a former suspect, hacker Ana Montes (guest star Aimee Carrero), who was first introduced in Episode 6, for help with Oscar.
“Someone I trusted did something horrible — I don’t know who I can trust anymore,” Jane tells Ana. “I »

Jaimie Alexander's Blindspot tattooing process may be grueling, but it's not dangerous. Shutting down reports that her faux-ink was making her ill, Alexander revealed at the People & Entertainment Weekly Upfronts party in New York on Monday that recent pictures of discolored marks on her back were the result of a sunburn - not anything to do with her fake tattoos. "I have a sunburn because I just went on an amazing vacation in Mexico," Alexander, 32, said. "It's so funny. The cool thing was, I have sunblock, of course, and I was trying to hurry, because I'm impatient. And I »

Summer just got a whole lot hotter! Today, TNT released a new trailer for its smoldering, action-packed summer series Animal Kingdom.

The two-minute montage offers viewers a tantalizing look at the family-centric crime story, which moves the tale from Melbourne to Oceanside and stars a sexed up Ellen Barkin as Janine “Smurf” Cody,” matriarch of a (literal) crime family made up of her sons — scruffy, smart-mouthed testosterone cases Craig and Deran (Vikings’ Ben Robson, Pretty … Continue reading →

The cast of NBC’s tattoo-filled “Blindspot” was on hand Monday night at New York’s Paley Center for Media to discuss their hit series.
“Today Show” host Hoda Kotb moderated a panel with creator and exec producer Martin Gero, plus actors Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza and Ashley Johnson, who shared juicy behind-the-scenes insight.
Jaimie Alexander, who plays the tattooed Jane Doe, leaves the body art on all week and as a result, gets hugs from sympathetic strangers.
“We’ve started shooting the season finale, so I leave my neck tat on overnight and it stays pretty well,” Alexander told the Paley audience. “On Mondays I put the neck on, and then whatever else we’re wearing, and then I leave the neck on all week with little touchups with the tattoo pen, and then I reapply the arms daily … I usually wear the tats home »

Before he starts shooting Fast & Furious 8 in the near future, action icon Vin Diesel is finishing production on XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. While it isn't ultimately clear when filming will wrap, the star recently shared a new video and photo from the set through his Facebook page, which gives us our first look at Samuel L. Jackson, reprising his role from 2002's xXx as Augustus Gibbons. Both the photo and video were taken at what appear to be a church set, but we don't have too many details about the scene being shot.
The actors did share a unique story about how they first met, while Vin Diesel was shooting Saving Private Ryan and Samuel L. Jackson was shooting Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, at a sushi restaurant no less. Samuel L. Jackson also joked that he was only doing this movie so he could »
This week, Blindspot was all about relationships. Reade (Rob Brown) is still heartbroken over Sarah, but Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) was getting comfortable with Allie (Trieste Kelly Dunn), sparks were flying between Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and Oscar (Francois Arnaud), and Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and David (Joe Dinicol)… well, they may still be a thing!

NBC’s “Blindspot” has already seen plenty of casualties in Season 1 so far, but one of the cruelest early deaths was the loss of Patterson’s (Ashley Johnson) boyfriend David (Joe Dinicol), who was killed back in Episode 9.
That loss is still keenly felt in Episode 16, “Any Wounded Thief,” and in Variety’s exclusive sneak peek at the new installment, we see Patterson struggling to move on following an unexpected phone call. Thankfully, Dr. Borden (Ukweli Roach) is on hand to offer some wisdom, free of charge.
Elsewhere in the episode, airing April 4, after an armored truck is robbed, the team discovers that the stolen goods are chemical weapons and they must race to thwart a terrorist plot. Meanwhile, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) grapples with a confusing memory of Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) — while growing even closer to Oscar (guest star Francois Arnaud). The series also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Rob Brown and Audrey Esparza. »

Snyder directed the original 300 in 2006, based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, which starred Gerard Butler and Lena Headey. Snyder then produced a sequel in 2014 called 300: Rise Of An Empire which was directed by Noam Murro and starred Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green.
On the possibility of a sequel, Snyder said:
"There may be. There may be. We’ve been talking a lot about sort of different incarnations of 300. We’ve been talking about is there a way, possibly, we move out of Ancient Greece and use it as a framing device for other conflicts that happened throughout history. I think I mentioned that we talked about the Revolutionary War version, and we talked about the Alamo, and »
