When Revenge returns for its fourth season next month, Victoria Grayson will find herself rubbing elbows with a certain spiky-haired saxophonist — sort of.
Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa on The Simpsons, will guest-star on Revenge‘s season premiere, TVLine has learned exclusively. Yeardley will play Phyllis, a fellow patient at the mental institution where Victoria was admitted (against her will) in the Season 3 finale.
Elena Satine is heading over to another ABC series this fall.
The “Agents of Shield” actress will have a recurring role in “Revenge” season four, Variety has confirmed with a rep for the show. She’ll play Louise, the slightly unhinged daughter of a rich southern family. She’ll have an unexpected connection with someone in the Hamptons.
She’s not the first newcomer to be announced for the ABC drama. “The Client List’s” Brian Hallisay is also recurring as Ben, a local cop. Additionally, James Tupper will become a series regular in season four.
Season four of “Revenge” will premiere Sunday, Sept. 28.

Daddy's home...and pretty unstable! No, we're still not done obsessing over Revenge's season three finale, which caused us to dent the floor with how hard our jaw hit it when it was revealed that Emily's (Emily VanCamp) believed-to-be-dead father, David (James Tupper, who will be a series regular [!]), has been alive and in hiding this entire time. Gamechanger? Yes. Risky move? Yes. Worth it? Hell yes. We sat down with executive producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts at the 2014 Atx TV Festival in Austin to chat about the ABC hit's bold decision to bring David back from the dead (Not like he was ever actually dead, but you know what we mean!) and what it will mean for Emily and Victoria »

If there's one person on Revenge who can turn Emily Thorne's world upside down, it's the return of her thought-to-be-dead father. When David Clarke moves into the Hamptons full-time this fall, Emily will be shaken to her core.
For three seasons, Emily (Emily VanCamp) has stopped at nothing to take down anyone involved in the wrongful imprisonment of her late father (James Tupper). Her mission had finally reached ultimate success by the end of the Season 3 with Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny) implicated in the crimes and his estranged wife Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) locked up in the looney bin. But, as viewers watched in the final minutes of the hour, David Clarke appeared very much alive taking revenge in his own hands by killing Conrad.

According to a new report from TV Line, the Revenge season 4 folks have decided to upgrade actor, James Tupper aka David Clarke (left), to a season regular, so expect to see more screentime from him this season. The last time we saw him, he was busy stabbing the shit out of Conrad Grayson, and leaving him for dead. He's been a recurring fixture over the course of the show's 3 seasons in flashbacks as he was presumed to be dead. Additionally, showrunner, Sunil Nayar, delivered some new spoiler scoopage with the following statement: "Victoria and Emily are both going to have to reckon with what they’ve done in his name over the last 20 years, and then they’ll have to reckon with, “Well, who is this man? It’s fun because, for the first time, the audience knows something that none of the people on the show do. The audience »
“Revenge” season three ended with a high body count and one hell of a twist (Spoiler Alert if you haven’t yet watched); the vicious Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) was committed to a psychiatric institution after murdering Emily’s (Emily VanCamp) lover, Aiden (Barry Sloane), and discovering our heroine’s secret identity, while nefarious husband Conrad (Henry Czerny) was stabbed by a vengeful — and very much alive — David Clarke (James Tupper).
Where will the labyrinthine ABC drama go from here? Star Nick Wechsler (who plays Emily’s childhood sweetheart Jack Porter) and executive producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts were on hand at the Atx Television Festival to discuss the show’s game-changing finale and what’s ahead in season four.
The producers wasted no time in addressing the show’s daddy issues — predicting the impact David’s unexpected return will have on his daughter: “How it changes the series moving »

In prison, Conrad (Henry Czerny) is being accused of Pascal’s murder and the judge receives a file with enough evidence against Conrad to re-open the David Clarke (James Tupper) case. It works, and David Clarke is cleared of all charges, while Conrad faces a lifetime of abuse behind bars.

Revenge's showrunner Sunil Nayar wants to take a moment to explain the shocking twist in Sunday night's season three finale. No, not that one … Not that one either. The other one. Caution, spoilers ahead! "For the first time we wanted the audience to know a little bit more than anybody in the show does," Nayar tells People of the return of the character of David Clarke (James Tupper), whose supposed death was a motivating factor in his daughter's mission for revenge.

Revenge is back, baby! Remember way back in season one of the ABC soap, when every single episode felt like a finale and you and your friends and family couldn't stop gushing about the show's twists and turns? Well, Revenge returned to that season one glory with its season three finale, with two major deaths, including an original cast member, and the father of all twists. Warning, spoilers ahead! Not only did Aiden (Barry Sloane) die at the hands (or pillow) of a revenge-seeking Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), who found herself institutionalized by finale's end, but Conrad (Henry Czerny) also bit the dust.

Is Emily Thorne close to getting what she set out to do three seasons ago? In last week's episode of Revenge, Emily (Emily VanCamp) -- who's been working to avenge the death of her father, David Clarke (James Tupper) -- was revealed to be the person who kidnapped Charlotte (Christa B. Allen). After Jack (Nick Wechsler) let Charlotte go, she unwittingly played a key role in getting her father, Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny), to confess his role in the terrorist bombing (which he had pinned on David years earlier) on live TV.

From the psychopathic, Christopher Lambert-bothering Kurgan in Highlander to tyrannical prison warden Byran Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption through to new recruit-maiming drill sergeant Zim in Starship Troopers, it's safe to say that I am one of the many movie fans who have more than just a handful of favourite Clancy Brown roles.
Brown joins an impressive cast that includes Anne Heche and James Tupper for Nothing Left To Fear, the first horror film to come from former Guns 'N' Roses guitarist Slash's production company 'Slasher Films'. Akin to Seventies horror classics The Wicker Man and Rosemary's Baby, Anthony Leonardi III's debut feature channels fears of the occult, secret societies and the supernatural with a modern twist.
We snapped up the chance to get the first word from Clancy himself on his latest role as the ominous Pastor Kingsman, head of a mysterious Baptist church »

Director: Anthony Leonardi III,
Running Time: 100 Minutes
Nothling Left To Fear boasts Slash, of Guns ‘N’ Roses fame, as one of its producers, but this seems to be the most exciting part about this fairly solid yet run of the mill horror. A pastor (Tupper) and his family move to a new town to relieve the current pastor (Brown) of his duties. The religious and waelcoming community isn’t all it appears to be though, and the family may very well be in great danger.
The story sounds very familiar, but at least it also removes a lot of the formulaic nonsense from its script, making it a much tighter affair. You would imagine the kids object to the move as well as bickering a lot, with a teenage rebel of a daughter and the like, »

Nothing Left to Fear is the first terrific terror tale from Slasher Films (founded by Guns N’ Roses rock legend/horror nut Slash), directed by Gore Verbinski’s visionary protégé Anthony Leonardi III. The film stars James Tupper and Anne Heche as the new pastor and his wife who arrive in Stull, Kansas, with their three kids hoping for an idyllic country life. At first the town and its people look like being the answer to their prayers, but then the supposedly retiring pastor Clancy Brown puts into motion an ancient ritual that unleashes a demonic fury. For Stull is one of the seven gateways to Hell and its inhabitants must quell the Beast who rises to walk the Earth at all bloody costs.
