True Detective Season 2 Adds Rectify Actress Abigail Spencer and Three Others for Recurring Roles

11 hours ago

More True Detective Season 2 casting news has been revealed, but it’s probably not the news you were hoping for or expecting. While HBO has not confirmed whether Taylor Kitsch or Rachel McAdams will be playing lead roles in the Emmy-nominated drama, four other actors, Abigail Spencer (Rectify), Kelly Reilly (Black Box), Michael Irby (The Unit) and Leven Rambin (The Hunger Games), are all reportedly closing in on deals for recurring roles for True Detective Season 2. In addition to the actors’ names, there also some details about who each of them will be playing in True Detective Season 2. According to TVLine, “Irby would play Elvis, the partner of McAdams’ character, Spencer is believed to be playing the survivor of a sexual assault and Rambin a beauty with a checkered past. Reilly’s role is described…as ‘the self-possessed Morgan.'” While we still don’t know exactly the type of characters that… »

Why The 100 Is The CW’s Hidden Gem

12 hours ago

I’m not sure why exactly I’ve been dodging The 100 for so long.  It’s post-apocalyptic, my favorite genre of sci-fi, it’s on the CW, which has produced many other shows I like, and it has a cool title. And yet, I have a pressing fear of new shows, in the sense that I’m worried I’ll get attached to them and they’ll be killed just as I’m getting into them. And in the case of The 100, I hadn’t heard really anything about it, either good or bad, which was a touch worrisome in and of itself. Will a show with no buzz really be able to live until maturity? Well, The 100 has started its second season, and after the recommendation of both one of my fellow writers here and a 5 star “recommended for me” rating on Netflix, I decided the time had come to give it a shot. »

Arrow Season 3 Episode 4 Review: ”The Magician”

12 hours ago

Last night’s episode of Arrow was the big 50th episode that has been one incredibly anticipated episode for a lot of viewers of the CW hit series. The episode picks up right where we left off last week with Nyssa (Katrina Law) showing up in the Arrow Cave asking where Sara is and she learns the tragic news that her loved one was killed. Nyssa was one of my favorite guest characters from last season so it was great to see her back again in a bigger capacity, although the circumstances were obviously tragic. Law has such a strong presence whenever she is on screen and seeing the struggle she has to through was just heartbreaking. This was the episode where Oliver finally – and I can’t put enough emphasis on it – learned that Malcolm Merlyn is in fact still alive after their showdown in the season 1 finale.…

Once Upon a Time Spoilers: Elsa Reunites With Anna in Arendale

12 hours ago

There are sure to be a lot of developments involving Elsa, Anna, and the Snow Queen in this Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, specifically one huge moment: Anna and Elsa getting to see each other again (although this reunion for the Frozen sisters only takes place in flashbacks of Arendale and not yet in present day). After searching the Enchanted Forest for answers to the question of why her and Elsa’s parents left on a voyage when they were kids, Anna returns home to Arendale and couldn’t be happier to be with her sister.  “I’m afraid you’re stuck with me,” she jokes to Elsa. However, the sisters’ reunion isn’t all smiles and laughter, as Anna decides to keep hidden what she learned about their parents from Elsa (at least for the time being), before noticing a big difference. “Wait, no flurries, no frost on the windows, »

Revenge Spoilers: Victoria Worries as David Prepares For a Live TV Interview

13 hours ago

Even though David Clarke may have returned back to his home in the Hamptons, that doesn’t mean he’s back to being the man he was, and that’s exactly what Emily and Nolan are worried about in this Sunday’s episode of Revenge, entitled “Damage.” However, as you can see in the two Revenge clips below, Emily and Nolan aren’t the only ones who are concerned about David—Victoria appears to be as well, although her intentions may be much more dubious. The first of the two videos below focuses on Emily and Nolan has they watch an FBI interrogation video with David and read what sound like the results of his psych examination, which state that he has “psychological fragmentation” and “a loss of a sense of safety and trust.” When Emily keeps pushing for more and more information, Nolan asks what she’s looking for. »

‘The Expanse’ Gets New Cast Members

13 hours ago

The Expanse is one of SyFy’s numerous new dramas intended to bring the network back to its roots as a science fiction network. Currently, the network doesn’t have a single currently running show that takes place off-planet, and has several which could easily be considered fantasy rather than science fiction. Shows like the Expanse are taking them back to the days when SyFy was synonymous with a space opera or military science fiction show, days that I miss and that I have long hoped would return. The show, based off of James S.A. Corey’s series of novels, is set 200 years in the future and follows the case of a missing young woman that leads into the exposure of a major conspiracy. The show’s new members include Dominique Tipper, who will play Naomi Nagata, a native of the “Belt” who prefers machines to people, and Wes Chatham, »

Check Out Eva Longoria as Jake’s New Love Interest on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

14 hours ago

It was announced back in August that Desperate Housewives alum Eva Longoria would be guest starring on Brooklyn Nine-Nine as a defense attorney who catches the eye of Jake (Andy Samberg) when she faces off against him in court, and now, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Longoria as Sophia, who, due to being a defense attorney, is “a natural enemy of the police” and “poses a potential romantic complication for Jake.” “Jake meets his match with Sophia—she’s a whip-smart lawyer who some people might possibly consider to be attractive,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine executive producer Dan Goor said to EW. “There is sexual tension between the two characters, but there is also the reality that cops and defense attorneys hateeach other. The question is: Will Jake sleep with the enemy?” Although Longoria proved to be a talented comedic performer on Desperate Housewives, what makes her »

The Middle Season 6 Episode 5 Review: “Halloween V”

15 hours ago

The Middle delivered plenty of scares in its fifth traditional Halloween episode.  For starters, Brick hung out with a girl for most of the holiday while Axl spent quality time in the library.  That’s not a typo, folks.  This could have easily turned into a crazy Freaky Friday situation but the strange realities of their situations really added to the overall humor. All the kids have been tackling different obstacles this season but Axl remains the most interesting.  When he’s locked in the library on Halloween night, he seizes the opportunity to speak his deepest fears aloud.  First of all, he was too dumb to operate a rotary phone that could dial out for help.  It’s realistic that his cell phone battery was dead but he must have been writing his paper on a laptop, right?  At least you’d think any college library would have desktop computers with internet access… »

Predicting Which Game of Thrones Characters Will Survive the Series (Part 2)

15 hours ago

Last week, I went through the four strongest candidates of who I believed had the best chance of surviving the entirety of the Game of Thrones series, both based on plot points and just general George Rr Martin preference. My theory was that there are four major characters he’s very much invested in that are simply not expendable, despite Martin’s famous ability to kill off major and beloved characters. Those four were Tyrion, Arya, Daenerys and Jon Snow, the last of which (book spoilers ahead) was supposedly killed at the end of A Dance with Dragons, but simply has too many unresolved plotlines to stay dead. Now this week I wanted to turn toward some of the “minor” characters on the show, even if minor Game of Thrones characters are more loved and better written than the leads of most other franchises. I’m obviously not going to get to cover… »

Arrested Development Season 4 Getting Re-Cut in Chronological Order by Series Creator Mitch Hurwitz

15 hours ago

When Arrested Development Season 4 premiered on Netflix over a year ago last May, it was one of the most anticipated television events in recent memory. However, although long-time fans of the Emmy-winning comedy series were desperate to have the show back, most of them (including myself) were ultimately disappointed with Arrested Development Season 4, as it was filled with overly long episodes that only focused on one character at a time (due to the limited availability of the actors). Now, though, in a recent interview with Pretentious Film Majors, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz has stated that he plans on doing some major editing on Season 4. “Right now, I’m cutting a version of season four that tells it chronologically,” Hurwitz said during the interview. What was so great about Arrested Development when it first aired was its pace, the constant, rapid-fire barrage of jokes that filled each and every scene. »

NBC’s Peter Pan Live! Takes Flight in First Official Promo

15 hours ago

We’re nearly a month away from NBC’s Peter Pan Live! and now we have our first promo for the network’s newest live musical production. Although it doesn’t reveal too much, the video below does give viewers a look behind the scenes of Peter Pan Live! and specifically focuses on Allison William, who will be playing the titular role of Peter, and Christopher Walken, who will be portraying Captain Hook in the production. It also provides a look at certain scenes as well, including one in which Pan and Hook fight aboard Hook’s pirate ship and another where Peter, most likely sitting the Darlings’ bedroom, stares out at the moon, looking for that second star to the right that will lead him back home to Neverland. Interestingly, there’s no singing in this Peter Pan Live! promo. In fact, there’s not even any words spoken by anyone, »

Game of Thrones Cast Receives Big Raises, Signs On Through Season 7

16 hours ago

Even though the fifth season of Game of Thrones is still months away, the HBO fantasy series is making headlines today for something that happened behind the scenes rather than on screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which first broke the news, members of the Game of Thrones cast have signed on through Season 7 of the show and, thanks to that, have received “huge raises” for the fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons. Reportedly, these raises “will make the cast members among the highest paid on cable TV.” HBO has not yet commented on the report. Now, the next part of this story has potential spoilers for it those who want to remain completely in the dark about who may or may not survive until Season 7. Reportedly, the actors included in this new deal are Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke

Netflix Orders Richie Rich Live-Action Comedy Series

17 hours ago

As everyone knows by now, this has been the television development year of remake after remake. However, it’s not just the broadcast networks that are a part of this remake problem anymore. Netflix announced yesterday that it has ordered a Richie Richie live-action comedy series, but with a slight twist. In the original Richie Rich comics, which debuted back in 1953, the titular character was the son of a wealthy industrialist and thus acquired his enormous wealth from his parents. However, in Netflix’s series, Richie Rich will actually be earning his own money by inventing and selling “cool new green technology” that snags him a trillion dollars.  As stated in Netflix’s press release about the new series, “Richie moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever.” The streaming company has already ordered 21 episodes of Richie Rich, which is planned to be a half-hour comedy series… »

Fox Developing New Peter Pan Series About Post-Neverland Lost Boys Entitled ‘League of Pan’

18 hours ago

So it looks like ABC, who went to Neverland and dealt with Peter Pan as a major villain on Once Upon a Time, and NBC, who will be debuting its new, live musical production Peter Pan Live! in December, aren’t the only ones interested in the classic character, as it is now being reported that a new Peter Pan series is now in the works at Fox. The project, which is titled League of Pan, would follow the Lost Boys 15 years after they left Neverland. According to Entertainment Weekly, Fox has already given a “script commitment plus penalty” to League of Pan. The potential series would take place in “modern Los Angeles and finds the Lost Boys reuniting when they discover someone is killing them each off.” Written and executive produced by Andrew Miller, League of Pan is described as a “soapy thriller” that is “grounded and edgy.” As I touched upon above, »

Forever Season 1 Episode 7 Review: “New York Kids”

29 October 2014 4:13 PM, PDT

Now that we’ve nearly reached November, it’s crunch time for freshman TV shows. Shows must begin to step up their game, or they run a closer and closer risk of cancellation. Forever has had a relatively strong start thus far, but it will definitely need to continue an upward trend to have a shot at a full season. This week, a local philanthropist with rich roots was murdered in his small scale New York apartment. His rich parents are shocked, and his high school friends are suspicious. Tyler (the victim) seemed like a great guy, and he just won a humanitarian award. So what kind of humanitarian who is universally loved is murdered with his award statue? Well sometimes that happens when you have secrets. This episode heavily relied on its main players, Ioan Gruffudd and Alana De La Garza, for the meat of the episode. This was a great episode in the… »

Lily Rabe to Reprise Asylum Role on American Horror Story: Freak Show

29 October 2014 2:52 PM, PDT

When I compared American Horror Story: Freak Show to Asylum, which I believe is the the best season of American Horror Story, I didn’t think that the two seasons of the series would literally start colliding. While the presence of Pepper this season has, in a way, already forged this connection between Freak Show and Asylum, this breaking casting news blends the two of them together even more. As Entertainment Weekly exclusively reported, American Horror Story alum Lily Rabe will be appearing later on this season on Freak Show, but instead of portraying an entirely new character, Rabe will reprise her Asylum role as Sister Mary Eunice. According to EW, Sister Mary’s return to the series reportedly “involves Pepper (Naomi Grossman) and how she ended up going from the freak show to Asylum‘s titular institution, Briarcliff.” Rabe will film her guest spot on Freak Show this weekend »

Daniel Radcliffe Rapping on The Tonight Show Is Just as Amazing as It Sounds

29 October 2014 2:20 PM, PDT

Daniel Radcliffe is a man of many talents. He can act, sing, and dance, as he proved with his performance in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway. However, how about Daniel Radcliffe the rapper? As the Harry Potter star revealed last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he’s not only a fan of rap music but also pretty good at performing it. After he finished his interview with Fallon, in which he promoted his new film Horns (which is in theaters this Friday), Radcliffe got the opportunity to rap Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics,” and while it may surprise some people, he was actually pretty fantastic at it. Throughout the entire song, as he was backed by The Roots, Radcliffe didn’t mess up a single lyric of the fast-paced A-to-z rap and actually had pretty good flow. He was so good, in fact, that »

Neil Patrick Harris and Husband David Burtka Offically Join American Horror Story: Freak Show

29 October 2014 1:03 PM, PDT

Here’s an early treat (not a trick!) for American Horror Story fans just two days before Halloween. Neil Patrick Harris is officially guest starring this season on the FX anthology series. But there’s even better news: he won’t be alone, as Harris’s husband, David Burtka, will also be joining him on Freak Show, making this American Horror Story casting news a bit of a family affair. TVLine, who exclusively revealed the news, has stated that Harris will guest star in Freak Show‘s final two episodes as “a chameleon salesman.” Meanwhile, Burtka will show up in the season finale in a storyline involving Jessica Lange’s Elsa Mars. Although Murphy first teased the idea of Harris joining the American Horror Story: Freak Show cast back in August, there had only been rumors and speculation on whether or not Nph would appear until this announcement. It appears »

Agent Carter Teaser Trailer Promises Action, Espionage and Awesomeness

29 October 2014 12:18 PM, PDT

If you watched Marvel’s Agents of Shield last night, you probably saw the new footage from what is sure-to-be this summer’s biggest blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, that hilarious scene of everyone trying to pick up Thor’s hammer wasn’t the only bit of cool Marvel footage that aired during Shield last night. We also got our first teaser trailer for the new ABC series Agent Carter, which will premiere in January and fill the gap of Shield‘s winter hiatus before it returns for new episodes in the spring. While it’s only 15 seconds long, the trailer for Agent Carter definitely has me excited for the show’s first season, as it will not only flesh out the character of Peggy Carter (played the fantastic Hayley Atwell), who we only got to spend a little bit of time with in Captain America: The First Avenger, »

Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 8 Review – “The Separation of Crows”

29 October 2014 11:46 AM, PDT

Another week, another lengthy table-setting episode for Sons of Anarchy this week – though admittedly, it does feel like the show’s finally starting to reflect how close to the end it is, cranking up the misery a notch and doubling up on slow-mo montages as the show heads into its final five episodes. Unfortunately, none of this really adds anything new or exciting to the crumbling world of Charming – like last week’s episode, “The Separation of Crows” is too busy putting pieces into place to execute anything emotional and/or impactful. I suppose if this week is supposed to represent the beginning of the end, it at least accomplishes that: Gemma’s bed full of dead crows overtly relays the fact that the Sons are ripping each other limb from limb, further represented when Jax puts a bullet through Jury’s head (more on that ridiculous nonsense in a »
