45 minutes ago

Game of Thrones fans, get ready to meet more of the Greyjoy family in Season 6. According to a report from the Game of Thrones community site Watchers on the Wall, The Borgias alum Pilou Asbæk, who was apparently spotted filming a major scene for the series at Ballintoy Harbor in Northern Ireland, will be playing the role of Euron Greyjoy. In George R.R. Martin’s novels, Euron is the eldest of Lord Balon Greyjoy’s younger brothers and the captain of the Silence, a ship crewed entirely by mutes whose tongues has Euron ripped out. Sources say that the scene Asbæk was seen in involved a crowd cheering for Euron. HBO has not officially confirmed the casting. In addition to his work on The Borgias, Asbæk starred in the successful Danish series Borgen and in the Scarlett Johansson-led film Lucy.

Doctor Who: Alex Kingston Returning as River Song for 2015 Christmas Special

1 hour ago

Doctor Who has an exciting Christmas gift for longtime fans of the series, and the show’s not waiting until December to share what it is. Alex Kingston will reprise her role as Professor River Song in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. BBC America announced the news earlier today. While no major plot details, or even an episode title, have been revealed yet, BBC America does offer this brief description: “It’s Christmas Day in the future and the Tardis is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure. Time traveller River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.” The network also states that “sparks are going to fly” between Capaldi’s Doctor and River, which should certainly be interesting to watch. Filming is set to start this week on the episode, »

Gary Busey Joins Dancing With the Stars, Announces News in Dramatic Fashion on Jimmy Kimmel Live

9 hours ago

This upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars just got a whole lot more interesting. And why is that? Because Gary Busey has signed on for Season 21 of the competition series, becoming the latest celebrity to join this fall’s DWTS cast, and in true Gary Busey fashion, the actor made the announcement in an incredibly over-the-top and dramatic way during a surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night. During Tuesday’s episode, Busey came out, riding on a white horse (as you can see in the video below) and revealed to Kimmel and the show’s audience that he would be participating in the reality competition series. It’s not yet known who Busey’s pro partner will be, but the actor joins a Dancing With the Stars cast that already features Nick Carter, Bindi Irwin, Victor Espinoza, Andy Grammer, Hayes Grier, and the series’ first-ever married couple, »

iZombie Season 2 Promo: Liv Eats Frat Boy & Old Man Brains, Blaine Adjusts to Human Life

9 hours ago

During tonight’s encore airing of “Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat,” the penultimate episode of iZombie‘s first season, The CW debuted its first promo for Season 2 of the zombie series, and to put it simply, the show looks as entertaining as ever. In the 30-second promo, which you can watch for yourself below, we get some insight into what types of brains Liv will be eating at the start of this season, with both of them, a frat boy’s and what appears to be grumpy old man’s, being very fun in different ways; a quick peek into how normal, human life is treating Blaine; and a scene in which Max Rager CEO Vaughn Du Clark (who will be the main antagonist for Liv and company this season) proclaims that “There are zombies living among us.” However, whom Vaughn is taking to in that scene is unclear, »

The Mindy Project Season 4 Premiere Photos: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Mindy’s New Man, Morgan Meets the Lahiris

10 hours ago

We’re less than two weeks away from the start of the The Mindy Project Season 4, the show’s first season after it was cancelled by Fox and picked up by Hulu, and now, we finally have our first look at what this new, Hulu-hosted season of the comedy series will be like, thanks to these photos from the Season 4 premiere. So does it still seem like the same old Mindy Project? From what we can see in these photos, I would most definitely say yes. However, these pictures do have a little something extra about them, since they feature not only Joseph Gordon-Levitt but Ajay Mehta (Royal Pains) and Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards) as Mindy’s parents, who are accompanied by Morgan (Ike Barinholtz) in one of the five photos below. And while the we’ll have to wait and see how we feel about Mindy’s parents, »

What Last Happened on Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, and More of Your Favorite ABC Shows

10 hours ago

Happy September! It is time to put away your bathing suits because summer will be coming to an end very shortly. And with the end of summer also comes the beginning of the new fall TV season, which is just around the corner. In only three short three weeks, we will be able to catch fresh new episodes of some ABC’s most popular dramas and sitcoms, including How to Get Away With Murder, Grey’s Anatomy, and Modern Family. But do you even remember what happened on the season finales of these shows? If you love TV as much as I do, you probably have been spending your summer watching series like Graceland and Under the Dome and not watching reruns of other shows. Because of this, we at TVOvermind decided to look back to May (and in some cases, February) to provide a quick reminder of what last »

Supergirl Casts Salem’s Iddo Goldberg as DC’s Red Tornado

15 hours ago

A Red Tornado is heading to National City. Supergirl has cast Salem‘s Iddo Goldberg to play Dr. T.O. Morrow, aka Red Tornado. The casting news was first reported by Comicbook.com. According to Warner Bros. Television’s description of the character, Red Tornado is “the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.” As Comicbook.com mentions, it will be interesting to see how Goldberg will be able play both Morrow and Red Tornado on Supergirl. In DC Comics, Morrow has never been Red Tornado, just the android’s inventor. Additionally, Morrow is typically a villain, while Red Tornado is a hero and a Justice League member. In addition to Salem, Goldberg’s past TV credits include Peaky Blinders, »

Empire Season 2 Premiere Photos: Cookie Visits Jailbird Lucious, Courtroom Drama & More

17 hours ago

Almost every single one of Empire‘s characters will begin Season 2 of the Fox drama in a much different place than where they started the series. Lucius is now in prison, Cookie possesses more power and control of the company, and their sons are free of their father’s demands and expectations. So what can we expect from the Empire Season 2 premiere? If these all-new photos from the episode, “The Devils Are Here,” are any indication, we can look forward to seeing Lucious dealing with life behind bars (he seems to be enjoying playing chess, at least), some major courtroom drama (judging by the looks on the faces of those in attendance), several different hairstyles from Cookie (she’s rocking at least three different ones in the Season 2 debut), and, of course, a whole lot of great musical performances (some of which will be taking place at a “Free Lucious… »

Josh Duggar Reportedly Missing After No-Show At Christian Rehab

18 hours ago

Disgraced reality TV star Josh Duggar checked into rehab on August 25th according to the Duggars.  However, since that time, no one has seen or heard from him.  He hasn’t been seen at any meetings which is leading some to believe he’s gone missing.  Duggar, 27, has been in a downward spiral ever since he confessed to molesting younger family members and then cheating on his wife Anna using the Ashley Madison website. Witnesses are claiming that Duggar hasn’t showed up to the Reformers Unanimous facility located in Rockford, Illinois. He’s been noticeably absense from a large group of students who are who arrived at the North Love Baptist Church, the facility’s affiliate, for a local chapter meeting. The mandatory meeting wasn’t the only thing Josh missed. The former TLC reality star reportedly also missed both church services on Aug. 30. A churchgoer claims the father of four was not… »

Check Out the New Daily Show Promo with Trevor Noah and Correspondents

18 hours ago

Now that Jon Stewart has relinquished his driver’s seat on The Daily Show, everyone is wondering how Trevor Noah is going to fill his shoes.   Judging by this promo, I’m a little worried.  Doing a bit about the pronunciation of Zebra?  Whether it’s Zeh-bra or Zee-bra?  Ehh.  Well it’s not like The Daily Show was ever huge on commercials but there’s no reason they shouldn’t be. Personally I think they should use an Espn approach and have guest stars floating around the office doing funny stuff.  Seriously.  How funny would it be to see politicians in Espn type commercials?  I for one would love to see a Chris Christie answering phones and getting heated. Or how about Donald Trump wearing a mascot uniform?  Noah assures his troops that the Daily Show will be the same but judging by this 30 second spot, it’s going »

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porscha Williams Kicked in the Gut By Co-Star Cynthia Baily

19 hours ago

Does anyone remember a time where people were saying it would be really hard to replace NeNe Leakes on Real Housewives of Atlanta?  Something tells me that after today’s news it didn’t take long for the drama to build up and the headlines to start pouring in. We’ve learned that Porscha Williams was on a boat in Atlanta with her castmate Cynthia Bailey when things got heated. Both women were arguing about what appears to be absolutely nothing. Porscha then started calling Cynthia the word most commonly used for “female dog.” Supposedly Cynthia actually tried to walk away but going to the other side of the boat. However, true to dramatic fashion, Porscha followed her. Porsha got in Cynthia’s face, and that’s when Cynthia exercised self-defense, kicking Porsha in the stomach. Producers came in before Porsha could react and restrained her. As far as injuries, »

Five Reasons You Should Be Watching iZombie

20 hours ago

2015 has been another terrific year of television, particularly for first-year shows, such as Better Call Saul, Daredevil, and UnREAL. However, when it comes to freshman series that debuted this year, I still believe iZombie was the most impressive of them all. Smart, funny, and heartfelt, iZombie was the perfect mix of everything I love about TV, whirled into one incredibly entertaining drama, a show I still think could be called the best series on The CW. If you’re not watching iZombie yet (and you should be), here are five reasons to catch up before Season 2 premieres in October. Blending of Genres When anyone asks me to describe iZombie to them, it’s always a difficult question to answer. Not because I can’t think of anything great to say about the show, but because the series is just so unique, a wonderful blend of different TV genres. It’s part sci-fi, »

We have just learned that none other than Wonder Years Star and Big Bang Theory guest Danica McKellar will be a judge during the 2016 Miss America competition. “The Miss America Organization shares my passion for the advancement of women in the Stem fields and celebrates smart, strong women,” McKellar said in a statement. “I am proud to be part of the show and an organization that is such a huge advocate for education.” The former child star, bestselling author and math genius is a strong advocate for education and has used her books to teach math concepts but also to empower in people the idea that being smart is also being sexy.

007 Author Anthony Horowitz Says Idris Elba is “Too Street” To Play James Bond

1 September 2015 7:53 AM, PDT

Something tells me that Anthony Horowitz is going to be in the news a lot today.   After much speculation about Idris Elba potentially being the next man to play James Bond, the 007 author himself had this to say:  “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.” All we can say is “ouch.”  Too street?  Too racist is more like it.  And the man even tries to protect himself by saying “it’s not a color issue.”  Frankly that makes the statement even more racist.  Idris Elba is one of the coolest dudes around and I honestly couldn’t think of a better Bond. »

Jimmy Kimmel Proves How Kanye West and Donald Trump Have a Lot in Common

1 September 2015 6:49 AM, PDT

As everyone already knows, Kanye West ended his 12-minute long VMAs acceptance speech on Sunday night by stating that he plans to run for president in 2020. However, what some people might not have realized when listening to his speech is that, in many way, the Grammy Award-winning rapper actually sounded a lot like a presidential candidate that’s already running in the 2016 election, a candidate that has dominated coverage on news channels and entertainment websites everywhere. I’m talking about Donald Trump, of course, and last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late night show host pointed out the very striking (and mostly very funny) similarities between West and Trump. While their political stances would more than likely not match up, the two biggest things that Kanye and “The Donald” have in common are their massive egos and their flair for the dramatic. And even though we know it would be impossible… »
