Spoiler: Don’t read this unless you’ve seen Episode 7 of NBC’s “Blindspot.”
The episode also introduced Lou Diamond Phillips as the much-hunted Saul Guerrero, thus allowing the audience, and Sullivan Stapleton’s Kurt Weller, to learn that Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) hasn’t been as forthcoming as she seems. Also growing suspicious: David (Joe Dinicol), the seemingly always available (now ex) boyfriend of Ashley Johnson’s brainiac Patterson.
Fittingly, the anagrams-of-titles theme continued this week and “Sent on Tour” can be reworded to mean “Trust No One.” Creator Martin Gero answers some of these questions for Variety. But can we trust him?
Jane flew a helicopter!
By the way, we did that all for real. It »

The opening scene of this week’s “Blindspot” was probably not what viewers of the NBC hit have come to expect. Instead of fights, either emotional or physical, there was just lead Jaimie Alexander’s mysterious Jane Doe having a rather romantic encounter with an equally mysterious man with a tree tattoo on his arm. Was it a fantasy about Sullivan Stapleton’s Kurt Weller? Was it someone from her past?
Viewers had to watch the entire episode to find out. But series creator Martin Gero talked to Variety about this encounter and what this means for Jane. He also shared details on the episode’s epic fight scene and how he makes his writers happy. (Hint: It involves churros).
Tonight’s episode opens with a much more romantic vibe than the other episodes’ openings.
For us, this is an episode about Jane and Weller taking the pause. They’ve »

NBC’s Blindspot Eight Slim Grins TV Show Review. Blindspot: Season 1, Episode 3: Eight Slim Grins picks up where episode two left Jane (Jaime Alexander) with an intruder, or rather, the Ruggedly Handsome Man (Johnny Whitworth), who has been following her around as she tags along with her new F.B.I. agent crew. Before he is shot through her window, he […] »

Last week’s Blindspot ended with multiple cliffhangers. Did anyone out there think we were actually going to get answers this week? Tonight’s episode was definitely filled with all sorts of surprises. Episode 2 ended with Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander, Kyle Xy) having a surprise reunion with the bearded man (Johnny Whitworth) from her flashbacks. Instead of picking up where we left off, “Eight Slim Grins” opens on a shot of what’s in Jane Doe’s refrigerator. Maybe she’s taking a look at what she has on hand for more unexpected company? Actually, the above scene seems to take place right before she met … Continue reading →

Spoiler: Do not read this interview unless you have seen the third episode of NBC’s “Blindspot.”
The third episode of NBC’s new thriller “Blindspot,” which airs at 10 p.m. Mondays, may have come with a big answer: It seems Jaimie Alexander’s memory-lacking, tattoo-laden Jane Doe may be the grown version of Taylor Shaw, the girl Sullivan Stapleton’s Kurt Weller has been searching for all these years. But it also came with many more questions. Naturally, for a show obsessed with puzzles, the details are vague.
In an interview with Variety, series creator Martin Gero sheds some light on operations Orion and Daylight as well as whether Marianne Jean-Baptiste’s Bethany Mayfair is as trustworthy as we first thought. But can we believe him?
Which is more of a problem for Jane: Orion or Daylight?
They’re both pretty big problems for her, in different ways. Let’s say Daylight. »

With Thor and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Jaimie Alexander as its protagonist and Arrow/The Flash/Supergirl executive producer Greg Berlanti involved behind the scenes, NBC’s new thriller Blindspot certainly has a lot going for it. Judging by the pilot, they’ve managed to come up with something decent, if a little constrained by the demands of network telly.
Essentially Bourne meets Memento, Blindspot wastes no time putting its constituent parts together. Within minutes, Alexander’s Jane Doe is found in a holdall in Times Square without memories, clothes or a discernable purpose, clad in mysterious tattoos – one of which is the name of Sullivan Stapleton’s character, Kurt Waller, of the FBI.

Ethan Embry had a very busy weekend. The actor took part in not one, but two different reunions in Los Angeles, celebrating a pair of '90s films that we still can't get enough of! First up: "Empire Records." Buzzfeed hosted a 20th anniversary screening of the flick on Friday evening, with a Q&A with the cast following the film.

Thor and Thor: The Dark World star Jaimie Alexander is moving to the small screen, with NBC issuing a series order for Blindspot, ahead of the network's official upfront presentation later this month. We also have the first photo featuring a nude and heavily tattooed Jaimie Alexander, just moments after she wakes up in a large duffel bag. Take a look at the show's official description below.
"A beautiful Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) is discovered naked in Times Square, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos with no memory of who she is or how she got there. There's one that's very clear, however: the name of FBI agent Kurt Weller, emblazoned across her back. 'Jane,' Agent Weller and rest of the FBI quickly realize that each mark on her body is a crime to solve, leading them closer to the truth about her identity and the mysteries to be revealed. »

Family is only as strong as the effort put in by everybody to sustain those bonds. But even the most perfect family can have those connections strained by things outside of their control, life events that suddenly arise, incidents from the past coming back to the surface. And in the upcoming "Bad Hurt," slated to make its World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, one family is pushed to the limit. Co-written and directed by Mark Kemble, and featuring "Sons Of Anarchy" star Theo Rossi along with Ashley Williams, Karen Allen, Johnny Whitworth, Michael Harney, and Iris Gilad, the Staten Island-set story follows the Kendalls, who have been dealing with grief and claustrophobia, as they care for one child with special needs and another with Ptsd.

Teresa Wright: Later years (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon.") Teresa Wright and Robert Anderson were divorced in 1978.

Last week, CBS issued a pilot order for their Limitless TV series, based on the 2011 feature film of the same name, which had the movie's director Neil Burger attached to direct the pilot episode. Today, Deadline reports that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb has taken over the directorial duties on the pilot. Neil Burger was forced to drop out after scheduling complications arose with his Showtime drama pilot Billions, which is currently shooting in New York.
Neil Burger remains on board as an executive producer for the Limitless TV series, which will take a different approach to the story than the feature film. The movie followed a struggling writer (Bradley Cooper), who, with the help of an experimental drug, unlocks 100% of his brain's capabilities, which allows him to become an overnight financial genius.

CBS has officially ordered a pilot for a new TV series based on the 2011 feature film Limitless, with the movie's star Bradley Cooper serving as an executive producer. We first reported on the project back in October 2013, with CBS issuing a pilot production commitment nearly a year later, in October 2014. Neil Burger, who directed the feature which took in $161.8 million worldwide from a $27 million budget, will also serve as an executive producer and direct the pilot episode.
The pilot episode was written by Craig Sweeny (Medium, Elementary). In the movie, a drug is discovered by a struggling writer (Bradley Cooper), which unlocks 100% of his brain's capabilities, as he uses his new gifts to become a financial whiz kid. The series will follow a man who discovers the drug Nzt, and becomes coerced into using his amazing new abilities to solve cases every week for the FBI.
