‘Scandal’: Shaun Toub & Jay Hernandez To Recur On ABC’s Shondaland Drama

Shaun Toub (Homeland) and Jay Hernandez (Suicide Squad) are set to recur on the seventh and final season of ABC’s Shondaland drama Scandal. No character or storyline details were announced. The Kerry Washington-led D.C. fixer series came from humble beginnings, starting as a low-key seven-episode midseason replacement in spring 2012. The soapy political thriller blossomed in Season 2 to a water-cooler show and a pop culture staple that became known for Omg moments — plot…

'Scandal': All the Details (So Far) About the Final Season

The seventh and final season of ABC's Scandal is beginning to take shape.

Following a crazy penultimate season in which Shonda Rhimes' game-changing drama had to scrap storylines because they hewed too close to the country's real political landscape (Russians hacking the election!), the final run will kick off with Bellamy Young's former first lady Mellie Grant back in the White House — as the president.

Below, The Hollywood Reporter rounds up everything to know (so far) about the final 18 episodes of Scandal.

‘Homeland’ Star Shaun Toub on Javadi’s Return, Possible Carrie Mathison Reunion

‘Homeland’ Star Shaun Toub on Javadi’s Return, Possible Carrie Mathison Reunion
Old friends are rarely welcome when they return in the world of “Homeland.” Though many fans were happy to see Shaun Toub, the show’s Machiavellian Iranian intelligence chief Majid Javadi, return to the Showtime drama’s sixth season, his presence is not without its consequences. In his heydey of Season 3, Javadi proved he would do “any and everything to survive,” Toub told TheWrap of his character. Now a double agent for U.S. intelligence, things are no different this time around. Also Read: 'Homeland' Season 6 Trailer Takes Carrie to Heart of New York (Video) Javadi’s American

‘Homeland’ Review: After Priming the Political Powder Keg, The Switch (Finally) Flipped on Season 6

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Homeland” Season 6, Episode 4, “A Flash of Light,” contains spoilers.]

Immediate Reaction

“No one gets out.” That’s what Sekou’s friend said after the Muslim-American protester was set free without explanation by the FBI. Sekou took offense at the time, knowing his own innocence, but his friend’s words turned out to be tragically prophetic, as the video-making self-righteous objector was (likely) killed in an explosion at the end of Episode 4, “A Flash of Light.”

Though we saw it coming as soon as he climbed into one of the vans Quinn photographed the night before, said knowledge did nothing to lessen the impact. The symbolism alone is enough to tear you up inside, as the implied murder of a Muslim-American by the U.S. government hits a little too close to home while foreign relations remain strained (to say the least) in our current political climate.

But the episode as a whole felt focused, lean, and emotionally honest. From

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

I’ve said time and time again that despite its merits the biggest flaws in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show has been its lack of fully developing characters from the Marvel Comic Book Universe. The show (which spiraled out from The Avengers movie) is ripe to explore and showcase some of the best characters that might just not be ready or capable of making an impact on the big screen. While some characters have found a way to appear (Deathlock, Daisy Rumble Johnson, Absorbing Man, and recently Ghost Rider) a great majority of villains have either been created specifically for the show (and suddenly now appearing in the comics) or have just been throw away characters that have very little to zero ties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Comic Book Universe.

Miles Teller: His best performances so far

One of my favorite young actors, Miles Teller has been gaining steam as emerging A-lister over the last couple of years. This week, Teller is getting the same treatment that fellow near A-lister Jonah Hill got from me a few days ago from yours truly, in honor of their upcoming film War Dogs. Teller is very good in the film, as he pretty much always is, and even if it probably won’t launch his star any higher, it’s another interesting role in his quickly growing oeuvre. He deserves the attention, that’s for sure, so we’ll be showering him with it a bit more today… Once again for those of you who are curious, War Dogs is dramedy about two young men who became unlikely gun runners. It’s based on the true story of David Packouz (Teller) and Efraim Diveroli (Hill), who inexplicably won a $300 million

Jonah Hill: His best performances so far

I don’t think that Jonah Hill quite gets the appreciation that he deserves within the industry. Yes, he’s been cited by Oscar twice with Academy Award nominations in Best Supporting Actor (the first for Moneyball and the second for The Wolf of Wall Street) and has anchored a hugely successful comedy franchise, but still, he comes off as under-appreciated. Perhaps when he makes his directorial debut in a year or so that will change, but for now, he’s still underrated in my book. This week, he has a new film out in War Dogs, which could be another hit on his resume. He also has last week’s successful Sausage Party, an animated movie in which he is one of the voices. He certainly keeps busy, right? For those of you who are curious, War Dogs is dramedy about two young men who became unlikely gun runners.

Grimm Finale: EPs Talk [Spoiler]'s Death, Rosalee's Secret, [Spoiler]'s 'Complex' Return and More

Grimm Finale: EPs Talk [Spoiler]'s Death, Rosalee's Secret, [Spoiler]'s 'Complex' Return and More
Stick a sword in it — Renard, you wanna do the honors? — because Grimm is done for the season.

Friday’s two-hour finale saw the deaths of three players, including Meisner (sniff!), and some intriguing developments for various members of the Scooby Gang. Here’s a quick recap:

Hadrian’s Wall identified Bonaparte, a Zauberbiest who helped found Black Claw, as being the insurgent group’s top man on the ground in Portland. Meanwhile, at Renard’s mansion, Bonaparte used his powers to petrify Adalind briefly, then promised to hurt her children if she ever removed the engagement ring he put

Movie Review: Papa: Hemingway in Cuba

At the beginning of Papa: Hemingway in Cuba, Ed Meyers (a lackluster Giovanni Ribisi), a thirty-something journalist with the Miami Globe in 1959, claims that Ernest “Papa” Hemingway (Adrian Sparks), saved his life. He says the author helped him become a writer and provided him with hope during an orphaned childhood. After Ed was fired for misspelling “maybe,” he stayed up nights during his probationary period copying each of Ernest’s short stories. “I learned grammar, dialogue,” essentially everything, he tells him and his wife, Mary (Joely Richardson), on a beach on Havana, Cuba, where the Hemingways live. This is after he makes contact with Ernest which starts a strange kind of friendship between the two – Ed’s thank you letter to Ernest was actually mailed by his girlfriend and colleague, Debbie Hunt (an underused Minka Kelly), because he was too scared to send it.

Ed says, “I needed to tell

Academy Award Film Series: Phillippe, Dillon Among Highlights of Simple-Minded, Oscar-Winning 'Race Drama'

'Crash' movie: Ryan Phillippe. 'Crash' movie review: California tossin' and turnin' Screenwriter Paul Haggis' multiple award-winning directorial debut, Crash, is set in a Los Angeles that is part Quentin Tarantino, part Paul Thomas Anderson, part Spike Lee, part Bret Easton Ellis. Haggis' L.A. also happens to be a place with precious little in common with the Southern California metropolis located on Planet Earth. In the film, Haggis and co-screenwriter Robert Moresco tell us – or rather, scream at us – that the Angeleno boiling (definitely not melting) pot is about to explode at any moment, as Los Angeles denizens spend all their spare time hating, fearing, misunderstanding, and cheating on one another. And perhaps much of that is true, except that most of that hate, fear, misunderstanding, and cheating have absolutely nothing to do with ethnic or national differences. But not in this particular L.A., situated in some warped La
