Jeffrey Donovan says 'Burn Notice' finale will leave fans with a cliff-hanger

13 December 2011 8:14 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After five years on Burn Notice, burned spy Michael Weston is poised to reclaim his former life in the CIA. There’s just one little problem… the man responsible for burning him in the first place is forcing Michael to do his evil bidding in exchange for not turning evidence over to the authorities that would land Michael’s true love Fiona in prison for a long, long time.

Or, in the world of Michael Weston, it’s a Thursday.

With things heating up, Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan stopped by EW to hint about where things may be going and tease the explosive Dec. »

The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Friday

2 December 2011 8:24 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

On TV this Friday: No fewer than five fall finales, a Charlie Duncan Christmas, college football and more. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Pac-12 Football Championship (Fox) | Lame-duck* UCLA (thanks to USC’s ineligibility) battles No. 9 Oregon in the first-ever Pac-12 championship game. [*This is the opinion of Michael Ausiello and does not necessarily represent the viewpoint of The TVLine-Up.]

8 pm Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (ABC) | The team visits Springfield, Mass. to help the Walkers, a family that for the past two years has lobbied for new state and federal laws against bullying — ever since their 11-year-old son took his own life, in the very home they are desperate to move out of. »

CSI: NY's Sela Ward: The Final Act of Rapist Arc Is 'Very Unnerving… a Great Thriller'

2 December 2011 6:52 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This Friday on CSI: NY (CBS, 9/8c), the John Curtis storyline enters its final act with Det. Jo Danville reeling from the fact that the suspected rapist whom she had a role in setting free years ago in D.C. has eluded another charge, again due to compromised evidence — in the latest instance, a victim’s shaky testimony.

“She is furious,” Sela Ward tells TVLine of Jo’s state of mind. “She is absolutely obsessed with getting this guy (played by Third Watch‘s Jason Wiles), so she’s being doing things that get her in a little bit of trouble with Mac. »

30 September 2011 10:47 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Sela Ward Co-Worker Drama Cast for CSI: NY

CSI: NY has turned to Michael Weston to play a former co-worker of Jo (Sela Ward) for an episode airing November 18. Weston will be playing Frank, an FBI crime lab agent and Jo’s partner before she the left Washington and the Bureau. To spice up the drama just a smidge, Jo wasn’t on the best of terms with Frank before she departed.

TV Guide reports that Frank and Jo worked on a rape case just before she left. Frank made a mistake while processing evidence and Jo couldn’t keep quiet on the mistake. This resulted in the rapist, John Curtis (Jason Wiles), getting off scot-free. Now in the present, Curtis is at it again, this time in New York, and Frank pays Jo a visit. Let’s hope he’s not too bitter. On top of that, Sen. Matthews »

Apologies to my weekly Burn Notice readers, due to Comic-Con I had to catch up with Michael Weston and crew this week with a double-header. However make sure you do check out our coverage of Matt Nix and Bruce Campbell being interviewed by Buzzfocus here and this video interview here who came to Comic-Con to promote the DVD/Blu-Ray release of Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe.

This plan should have been met with an »

Yesterday I announced BuddyTV was giving away a Burn Notice prize pack but in order to enter you had to pay attention to last night's episode. Need a refresher on what happened?

Last night in "Enemy of My Enemy" we saw Michael put Sam's life in danger in order to help the CIA save a Serbian asset. Carmello, a heroin dealer, wasn't buying what Sam says and the CIA refused to help. Michael and his team used their tricks to save Sam while Fi and Madeline identified the fake Michael Weston.

Don’t panic, film fans: that reliably ace character actor is not planning to ditch performing for the academic life. Richard Jenkins has signed on to co-star in HappyThankYouMorePlease writer/actor/ director Josh Radnor’s next triple-threat indie project, Liberal Arts.

(Really? Zibby? Okaaay…)Jenkins, who also appeared in Radnor’s last pic, is on to play the main character’s favourite college professor, who helps introduce the pair.Also jumping aboard are Twilight’s Elizabeth Reaser, My Soul to Take’s John Magaro, and Michael Weston, who was last seen on the big screen in Gamer. »
