Who Will Be Breaking In With Christian Slater in Season 2? And Who Won't Be?

28 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The Contra Security workplace will look a bit different when Fox’s Breaking In breaks out its second season.

Confirmed to return as series regulars to the caper comedy — which was canceled back in May but then plucked from the ashes as a midseason replacement — are Christian Slater (as Contra boss man Oz), Bret Harrison (Cameron) and Alphonso McAuley (Cash).

Plus, as TVLine exclusively reported last month, Emmy winner Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) is coming on board as a Season 2 regular, playing Oz’s own boss.

TV Review: House 8.8, “Perils of Paranoia”

29 November 2011 1:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

This week’s episode of House begins with our guest victim, a lawyer, in court doing what he does (trapping a witness who’s lying). All seems well for him until he suffers massive chest pains and believes he’s having a heart attack. Good a reason as any to call a recess.

The lawyer ends up under House’s (Hugh Laurie), tender mercies, sent there by Foreman (Omar Epps), who lied to the patient about his condition. House begins investigating and soon comes to the conclusion that the man has been poisoned. A prosecuting attorney should have no shortage of would-be poisoners, but how to figure out which one it is?

Soon Park (Charlyne Yi), and Adams (Odette Annable), are on the way to the man’s house looking for clues. They drive there in a Ford, which very noticeably takes a smooth, even turn »

The cast of House is switching things up this holiday season.

While Thanksgiving is supposed to be all about focusing on the positive, Charlyne Yi, Odette Annable and Peter Jacobson are taking time out to (playfully) dwell on the things they loathe. Specifically, what are the trio’s least favorite holiday fixins’?

TV Review: House 8.5, “The Confession”

8 November 2011 12:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

You’d think that an episode of House that brings us Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica, Law and Order: UK), would be very interesting and compelling. You’d think they’d use him to do something really cool. Not so much.

Our story opens with Bamber’s character receiving all sorts of praise and accolades from the people of his town. Then he goes off with a woman not his wife and experiences a sort of seizure during sex.

He ends up at Princeton Plainsboro, where House (Hugh Laurie), has managed to recover his full office and has also managed to recover Taub (Pater Jacobson) and Chase (Jesse Spencer), who get to work alongside new doctors Park (Charlyne Yi), and Adams (Odette Annable). We learn from the first scene with all of them that Taub has two babies, at least one of which might not be his, »

'House': Jesse Spencer on possible new flames, Chase's 'best season' yet

7 November 2011 11:05 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Chase’s absence from the first four episodes of House’s new season have been painful for fans of the Aussie doc, but luckily, he and fellow veteran team member Taub (Peter Jacobson) are back on tonight’s new episode. But, as Jesse Spencer tells EW, their transition back to a team, which has seen the addition of two doctors (Odette Annable’s Jessica Adams and Charlyne Yi’s Chi Park), won’t be seamless.

“They have their disagreements , obviously,” he says. “They have different clashes and different ways of doing things, but there is also a sort of nurturing »

Megan Mullally joins 'Breaking In' as new series regular

4 November 2011 1:59 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fox's comedy "Breaking In" is coming back from the dead with an addition to the cast.

The sitcom, which the network canceled before striking a last-minute deal to bring back at midseason, has nabbed Megan Mullally as a new regular cast member.

Deadline reports that Mullally's character will take over Contra Security, replacing Christian Slater's Oz as the boss. Don't worry, Slater's sticking around; he'll just have his own boss to contend with.

The addition is part of sweeping creative changes taking place on the show, which also include focusing more on the office politics rather than the missions the Contra staff complete each week. 

No premiere date has been set, though Deadline says the show will go back into production in January and is expected to join Fox's Tuesday comedy block.

If you worry this will mean Mullally won't be able to reprise her role on "Parks and Recreation »

House's Jesse Spencer on Romance with the New Doc and His Series-Ending Death Wish For Chase

4 November 2011 1:41 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

House vet Jesse Spencer found a silver lining to the show’s recent cast changes in the unlikeliest of places: his scripts.

“This is turning out to be the best season for me,” declares the actor, whose alter ego, Chase, officially rejoins House’s team in Monday’s episode. “The [casting] shift and the new characters have opened things up a lot and given the writers more of a chance to write for Chase. It’s really exciting for me to play with, and it’ll be exciting for any Chase fans out there.”

Film Review: ‘The Double’ Copies Lazy Performances, Silly Twists

4 November 2011 12:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Rating: 1.0/5.0

Chicago – It’s ironic that a film called “The Double,” starring Richard Gere & Topher Grace, would remind one of so many superior thrillers. It is in itself a double, a carbon copy of better films that focuses on all of the wrong elements, thinking that audiences are still dumb enough that just throwing twist after twist at them will keep their head spinning enough to not realize that what they just saw not only makes no sense at all but wasn’t even remotely entertaining.

Don’t worry that the trailer for “The Double” gives away the title character because the film itself does the same by the end of the first reel. If co-writer/director Michael Brandt (who wrote “Wanted,” a film that looks downright logical compared to this one) had been content with just one twist, his thriller might have been effective, but savvy viewers will know »

Breaking In Scoop: Megan Mullally Is [Spoiler]!

4 November 2011 11:15 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Breaking In is shaking things up ahead of its second season.

Emmy winner Megan Mullally is joining the cast of Fox’s back-from-the-dead comedy as the new boss at Contra Security, TVLine has learned.

What does this mean for Christian Slater’s Oz? We can only assume that he’ll be taking orders from Mullally’s new boss lady. Or perhaps she was a “silent partner”/holder of the purse strings who is now about to become a bit louder. Either way, she’s here to stay: Mullally will be a series regular.

Megan Mullally Joins Fox’s ‘Breaking In’ As New Regular As Part Of Creative Revamp

4 November 2011 11:15 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The Breaking In gang is getting a new boss. After a hot pursuit by the producers, Megan Mullally has closed a rich deal to join the Fox comedy as a new regular. Mullally’s character will take over high-tech security firm Contra Security, which had been run by Oz (Christian Slater), who will now have his own boss. The high-profile cast addition is part of significant creative changes the comedy created by Adam F. Goldnberg and Seth Gordon is undergoing heading into Season 2. The “mission of the week” concept where members of the Contra team go out of the office on a different assignment in every episode will be scaled back as Breaking In will segue into a more office-based comedy. Production on Season 2 is slated to begin in early January. The series, which recently came back from a cancellation for the second time, is expected to be part of »

4 November 2011 6:36 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

TV Review: House 8.4, “Risky Business”

2 November 2011 1:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

House, the TV series, is generally at its best when House (Hugh Laurie), the character, is at his worst. But please note my use of the word “generally”, as this is a rare episode where House acts like…well, like a diminutive of Richard, but the episode itself is rather dull.

Our story beings with Thad Barton, CEO of a business that’s about to move to China. He’s busy cleaning up his front yard after protestors planted signs, hung him in effigy and Tp’d his trees. While he’s doing this, his daughter arrives. The two talk for a bit, then Barton’s vision starts going wonky, making him see his daughter as very small and far away. Of course he ends up under the care of Doctor House, who refers to the problem as “Alice in Wonderland Syndrome,” which, somewhat to my surprise and amusement, »

House Star Odette Annable: Hubby Dave Ready to Start Family, But...

1 November 2011 1:55 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Dave and Odette Annable have been married for a year and really want to have kids. "I can't even be around children," Odette tells me after a day shooting House (she joined the hit Fox series this season). "It's a problem. My ovaries start screaming." However... "I'm not ready for them quite yet, but Dave is," Odette, 26, says. "Oh, my God—he was born to be a dad. You should see him with children." Or with Richard Gere. Dave, 32, visited Odette while she was filming her new spy thriller The Double (out now). She plays the wife of a young FBI agent (Topher Grace) who has teamed up with a retired CIA operative (Gere) to hunt down a »

Exclusive House Video: Chase and Taub are Back!

If it’s House’s goal to make Chase (Jesse Spencer) and Taub’s (Peter Jacobson) first day back at work as painfully uncomfortable as possible, the cantankerous healer succeeds with flying colors.

The medicine men formally rejoin Team Diagnostic in House‘s Nov. 7 episode, and within the first 30 seconds of their arrival, House manages to both criticize Chase’s scruffy new appearance and stir up awkward romantic tension between him and rookie MD Adams (Odette Annable).

The Double Movie Review

24 October 2011 4:20 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: The Double Director: Michael Brandt Starring: Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Stephen Moyer (‘True Blood’), Martin Sheen and Odette Annable (‘Cloverfield,’ ‘You Again’) Mystery thrillers are often remembered for their action sequences and suspenseful plot points, but ‘The Double’ surprisingly leaves its mark with complex, diverse main characters. The film, which is the directorial debut of acclaimed screenwriter Michael Brandt, aims to prove that films featuring politics and crimes don’t have to solely focus on continuous anticipation. Unfortunately, Brandt’s admirable attempt to feature both intrigue and multi-dimensional characters failed to live up to his previous films. ‘The Double’ follows the return of retired CIA operative Paul Shepherdson (played by Richard »

TV Review: House 8.3, “Charity Case”

18 October 2011 2:28 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Today’s question: is it ethically acceptable to receive oral sex from a sex addict?

When is giving away your money a sign of good, charitable decency, and when is it a sign of something larger, like some sort of mental disorder? This is the question that faces Doctor House (Hugh Laurie), and team in the most recent episode.

It begins with a man named Benjamin (Wentworth Miller), who pretends to be a man in need. He goes to a charity that helps such people and leaves a million dollar check behind. The woman he was talking to in the charity follows him to find out what’s going on, only to watch as he falls flat on his face outside the office.

House gets wind of this man’s case and brings him in. Everyone, including what’s currently comprising his team (Charlene Yi and »

Thirteen says goodbye House, hello girlfriend

18 October 2011 1:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Just imagine the casting call for last night's episode of House: "Wanted: Cute 20-something actress to not say a word while lounging on the couch and making out with Olivia Wilde. Bring headshots and body armor to the audition. You’ll need it to beat off an army of lesbians all bludgeoning each other for a chance to win the role."

Speaking of wanting things, House wants to get the band back together. And by band he means Chase, Taub and Thirteen. Though, now that I think about it, that sounds more like an accounting group than a group of rock-star diagnosticians. The only problem is that he has no money to get the band back together – major funding cuts during his stint in the pokey. So, instead he has one new diagnostician, Dr. Chi Park (Charlyne Yi, rocking the bowl cut hard), and one volunteer diagnostician Dr. Jessica Adams (Odette Annable, »

Battlestar Bamber in the House with Huge Laurie

Battlestar Galactica’s Jamie Bamber has found himself a new gig as a patient on the current season of House. He’ll catch House’s attention in the November 7th episode, which also happens to be the episode Chase and Taub make their official returns to the diagnostic team. With those two back, Bamber’s character should be in good hands. Unless of course he has something really devastating and he’s been hiding so many secrets the team is left with zero options. It just so happens that’s exactly what will happen.

According to TVline, Bamber “suddenly collapses, and in the process of diagnosing his symptoms, the team discovers that he has been hiding dark secrets and lying about his personal and professional life… But when he openly confesses his wrongdoings to his family and community, he compromises his chances »
