FX's intense biker drama Sons of Anarchy has had a number of guest stars already this season (including former Disney star Ashley Tisdale, Community's Joel McHale, and a surprise appearance byJustified's Walton Goggins), but here's another one you might not have expected: Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction will be making an appearance in the final two episodes this year. In related FX news, Jason Mantzoukas (known to many as Ruxin's batshit crazy brother-in-law Rafi from the FX fantasy football comedy The League) will be joining the cast of Modern Family this season as Hayley's (Sarah Hyland) boyfriend, who is also her co-worker and a jeans designer. If Mantzoukas brings one-tenth of the ridiculousness of Rafi to this new character, I can't wait. But does that mean goodbye to Dylan (Reid Ewing)? In the meantime, hit the jump for more specifics on each of these new characters' roles. According to THR, »

"Modern Family" is doing something a little bit different in Wednesday's (Sept. 26) season premiere than it has in past seasons -- picking up the action more or less where things left off at the end of Season 3.
How do we know that? Because Jay (Ed O'Neill) is celebrating his birthday in the episode, and past seasons of the show well established that it's in late spring. Starting there makes sense from a story-telling standpoint as well: It would be sort of hard to buy Gloria (Sofia Vergara) keeping her pregnancy secret from Jay for an entire summer.
Anyway, Jay announces in this first clip from the episode, "Bringing Up Baby," that he doesn't want any big surprises for his birthday. Cue worried talking-head scene with Gloria.
While scanning for promotional materials for Modern Family, which returns to ABC next week on September 26th at 9pm, we found this video from 2011 of Julie Bowen appearing on Jimmy Kimmel to promote the return of Modern Family that season. Bowen was talked into impersonating co-star Sofia Vergara with hilarious effect. It's definitely a moment well worth reliving. Check out the video:
In the Season 4 premiere, "Bringing Up Baby," Jay's birthday is upon us again and, as before, he makes it well-known that he wishes to keep it as low key as possible, with no grand gestures or surprises. But leave it to the family to miss the mark yet again! Phil takes Jay on a very unconventional fishing trip with his buddies, and Gloria »

Good news, "Vampire Diaries" fans! If you can't get enough of Candice Accola on The CW, you'll get to see much more of her this year. She's taken on the lead role in Season 2 of the web series "Dating Rules From My Future Self," produced by Alloy Entertainment.
Candice will play Chloe Cunningham, a 26-year-old woman who gets face-time messages from her 36-year-old self, giving her advice as she navigates her romantic entanglements. Candice will also receive producer credit on the series, according to THR. She'll be joined by "Modern Family's" Reid Ewing, best known as Haley Dunphy's boyfriend Dylan.
"Vampire Diaries" fans may already be familiar with the series, since Taylor Kinney (Hot Uncle Mason himself!) starred in the first season. Though Kinney won't be back for more "Dating Rules," since he's busy with NBC's "Chicago Fire," Season 1 lead Shiri Appleby will be returning for the first episode of the show. »
It’s that time of year… network shows are going off the air (some for good) and the cable summer season is about to premiere. We decided to take a look at all of the season finales that have aired thus far and here are more of our staff picks for the best and the worst for the 2011-2012 season. Here are picks made by BuzzFocus Associate Editor-Community Manager Ernie Estrella:
(Spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t seen these season finales!)
Best: Don’t Trust The B—- in Apartment 23
Wanna know why this show worked and 2 Broke Girls didn’t? We had rudeness from Chloe (Krystin Ritter) and the corruption and naïveté of June (Dreama Walker) is plenty fun, but the supporting characters prove to be something more than what they are on the surface. James Van Der Beek destroys playing a caricature of himself and as Chloe’s catty Bff, »

The season finale of "Modern Family" is called "Baby on Board," and the A-story brings Mitchell and Cam's (Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet) fitful, season-long endeavor to adopt another baby to a conclusion.
But we're kind of more interested in the fact that Claire (Julie Bowen) is likely to drop dead from a heart attack when she hears Haley's (Sarah Hyland) plans for the future, which she lays out in the video above. (Plus, the clip also features Phil (Ty Burrell) dancing.)
We're speaking figuratively -- it's a comedy, after all, so suddenly killing a main character is probably not in the cards. But Bowen is often at her best when Claire is trying hardest to contain her judginess, and we suspect there will be a lot of that happening when Haley tells her parents she wants to move in with Dylan (Reid Ewing) after she graduates from high school. »
Fright Night, 2011.
Directed by Craig Gillespie.
A high school student comes to suspect that his next-door neighbor is a vampire.
Fright Night follows Charley Brewster (Anton Yelchin), a down-to-earth high schooler who’s just trying to fit in with the cool crowd. He’s got a pretty girlfriend, Amy (Imogen Poots), and he’s got two douchebag friends - Reid Ewing and James Franco’s younger brother Dave. One day his old best friend Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) comes to him with something he’s very serious about. Ed believes that Charley’s new neighbor Jerry (Colin Farrell) is in fact a vampire. Charley obviously doesn’t believe Ed at first, but as the movie progresses he starts to take notice of some of Jerry’s actions. For instance, vampires aren’t allowed into »
