Time Machine: Drop Dead Dazzling Adams 'Always the Bridesmaid Never the Bride' on the Oscars' Red Carpet

15 May 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Amy Adams drop dead gorgeous on Oscars' Red Carpet Amy Adams at the 83rd Academy Awards Looking drop dead gorgeous, Amy Adams is pictured above donning a scintillating blue dress while arriving at the 2011 Oscar ceremony, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in the fast-thumping heart of Hollywood. Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette. In fact, the film's only major cast member left without an Oscar nomination in the acting categories was lead Mark Wahlberg (pictured with wife) – though he did »

Morena Baccarin promoted to series regular for Gotham season 2

14 May 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given her level of involvement in the latter half of the first season, but Morena Baccarin has officially been promoted to a series regular for the second season of Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, which is set to get underway in the fall.

Baccarin joined the first season as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, serving as a love interest for Ben McKenzie’s Detective Jim Gordon. The actress is currently shooting another comic book-related project, portraying Copycat in Fox’s Deadpool, while she also lends her voice to Gideon in The CW’s The Flash.

Gotham Bumps Morena Baccarin Up To Series Regular Status For Season 2

13 May 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Morena Baccarin (Deadpool) first debuted as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, many didn't expect her to stick around for too long, but with Erin Richards' Barbara Kean falling out of favor with fans, Baccarin received an expanded role as her relationship with Ben McKenzie's Jim Gordon evolved over the course of the latter half of the show's freshman season. And with Barbara's status, after her attack on Lee in the season finale, a little uncertain, it looks like Gordon will have the nice doctor to keep him company for a good while longer. Earlier this week, Fox officially announced that their Batman prequel drama Gotham has decided to exercise Baccarin's option to promote her from recurring status to a series regular. We all know Barbara Kean is supposed to eventually become Barbara Gordon, but with the direction the series is heading, could we see a further deviation in the Batman mythos? »

'Gotham' Season 2 Promotes Morena Baccarin to Series Regular

12 May 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox's Gotham has promoted actress Morena Baccarin to series regular for the upcoming second season. The actress joined the show in January's midseason premiere "Rogues Gallery" as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, who met Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) while they were both working at Arkham Asylum. They were introduced shortly after Gordon broke things off with his fiancee Barbara (Erin Richards), and started dating each other shortly thereafter.

Of course, the actress signing on as a series regular is no guarantee that Leslie's romance with Jim will continue, but even if the romance dies, she still serves as the lead medical examiner for the Gotham City Police Department. The first season ended in quite a harrowing fashion for Leslie, since she tried to counsel Barbara after her encounter with the Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia), which ultimately lead to Barbara trying to kill Leslie. It remains to be seen how this will affect Leslie »

Gotham Promotes Morena Baccarin to Series Regular for Season 2

12 May 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Gotham won’t have to get itself a new doctor for Season 2. Morena Baccarin, who recurred as Dr. Leslie Thompkins on the Fox drama during Season 1, has been promoted to series regular for the show’s second season. TVLine was the first to report the news. When Baccarin first joined Gotham back in January, it was reported that were was an option to make her a series regular if the show received a Season 2 order. Obviously, the series decided to exercise that option. So far in her time on Gotham, Baccarin’s Thompkins has served as a doctor at Arkham Asylum and become the new major love interest for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), after things fell apart between him and his now ex-fiancee, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards). In Gotham‘s first season finale, Leslie and Barbara ended up getting into a vicious fight with one another after Barbara admitted to killing… »

Ha Ha Ha & Brrrrrrrrr! The Joker & Mr.Freeze Head To ‘Gotham’

11 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gotham Season 2 is to welcome the Clown Prince Of Crime and the Chilly Prince Of Chilblains to its ever-expanding rogues gallery. The story broke at the Fox Upfronts industry pitchfest.

Presumably The Joker and Mr. Freeze will appear as young versions of themselves, in the show’s now firmly-established format. The likes of The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler are all up and running, so it was only a matter of time before these big bads were ushered in.

Whoever is cast as Batman’s ultimate nemesis faces some stiff competition from Jared Leto, who’ll take the grown up version of the role in upcoming Suicide Squad. The latter option has less to worry about – last time we saw Freeze he was lumbering about as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Joel Schumacher’s critically-mauled Batman & Robin movie.

It looks like Ben McKenzie’s Jim Gordon and Donal Logue’s Harvey Bullock »

‘Gotham’ Season Finale: Finding a Bright Future in Darkness (Spoilers)

4 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite critical admiration for its pilot, skepticism in certain quadrants (including this one) greeted “Gotham,” the Batman prequel that just capped a successful first season on Fox. Specifically, there was the little matter of the elephant (Ok, bat colony) in the room – namely, that no matter how much the series sought to invoke its source material, it could never show the young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), still a child, in cape and cowl.

Yet as the season finale made clear (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), under showrunner Bruno Heller the DC Comics-inspired drama has demonstrated that it can mostly stand on its own – exhibiting wit about its tie-ins to the Batman universe, but without needing to “ooh” and “aah” at every teasing reference regarding the comic-book world to come. In that respect, the show, for all its gloom and darkness, appears to have something that wasn »

Ben McKenzie on Gotham season finale, his dream job, Batman and more

28 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Ben McKenzie’s clear-eyed stare makes him the perfect cop, as he proved on Southland and continues to prove on Fox’s Gotham. (Gotham season finale is set to air on Fox Monday, May 4.) “As we begin the series, he is an old-fashioned hero, a man of principle, a veteran,” McKenzie says of his character, James Gordon. “He is very much his father’s son — his father being a revered D.A. — and Jim has modeled himself in his father’s image. He comes into Gotham to take on that cause from his father only to find out Gotham is not exactly … Continue reading →

Gotham, Episode 1.21, “The Anvil or the Hammer” paves an excellent pathway towards season finale

27 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gotham Season 1, Episode 21: ‘The Anvil or the Hammer’

Written by Jordan Harper

Directed by Paul Edwards

Aired Mondays at 8pm (Et) on Fox

The penultimate episode of Gotham superbly closes the Ogre arc and sets the table for what appears to be an exciting, grand season finale. The last couple of episodes have shown Gordon shaken and dead set on taking down the serial killer the Ogre, as he has threatened to victimize his loved one. The discovery that the loved one in question is his former fiancé only makes him more resolute in his undertaking. This episode does an excellent job at showing how determined Gordon is and the wear it takes on him, with Leslie and Bullock reminding him that he needs to take a break before he burns out, but Gordon doesn’t let up. Ben McKenzie is in top form in this episode, as he »
