Supergirl Casting Actors for Series Regular Roles as Cat Grant, Jimmy Olsen & More

4 hours ago

We’re still about a year away from the premiere of CBS’s Supergirl, from Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (ChuckNo Ordinary Family), and although we don’t have any actual casting news to report for Supergirl, we now have a better idea of which characters will be appearing on the series and what the show’s producers are looking for. This information comes from TVLine, which has exclusive reported the details regarding Kara Danvers, aka Kara Zor-El and other characters on the show. Most interesting from their reports is that Supergirl is looking to cast both Jimmy Olson and Cat Grant as series regular roles. Per TVLine, these are all the Supergirl casting requirements and character descriptions: Kara Danvers: Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she… »

Get Your First Look at Plastique on The Flash

4 hours ago

Fans of CW’s The Flash have a lot of DC Comics faces that they can look forward to seeing throughout Season 1 of the superhero series, one of them being Plastique (played by Rake‘s Kelly Frye). Thanks to TV Guide, we have the first photo of Frye as Plastique on The Flash, and she appears to be in a pretty dire situation, as it looks like Barry has just saved her from sort of trouble. The Flash returns with new episodes on Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. on The CW. For more on the episode, check out The CW’s official synopsis and watch the trailer for “Plastique” below. Kelly Frye Guest Stars As DC Comics’ Plastique And Clancy Brown Guest Stars As General Eiling – After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown), rolls in and takes over the case, much to… »

Why The Originals Should Recombine With The Vampire Diaries

9 hours ago

The CW has amassed a pretty solid line-up of shows these days, created big fanbases that watch one, two or all of them, if they have time during the week. Though most of them are standalone shows, Supernatural, Jane the Virigin, The 100 and Reign (the last of which may be the weak link and not survive another  year), four of their major shows are pairs. That would be Arrow and its spin-off The Flash, and The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off The Originals. While I think Arrow and The Flash are still in a pretty good place, only 3 and 1 seasons into their lifespans respectively, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are wavering in my eyes, at 6 and 2 seasons respectively. I understand why The Originals exists. When Klaus and his Mikkelson family of Original Vampires were introduced into The Vampire Diaries, they were instantly hated by…

Kurt Sutter and the Cast Have Finished Filiming the Sons of Anarchy Finale

10 hours ago

It’s been a pretty crazy week for Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, as he had to have his appendix suddenly removed during the middle of shooting the series finale of the show. However, after having longtime Sons director Paris Barclay fill in for him while he was recovering, Sutter returned to set on Wednesday and continued his directing duties until last night, when Sutter, the cast, and crew all finished filming the Sons of Anarchy finale. Sutter let fans know that they had wrapped on the final episode by posting the tweet below. That’s a wrap. Thank you. #soa#finalridehttp://t.co/TGYgugPNfI — kurt sutter (@sutterink) October 31, 2014 Although the final scenes of on the Sons of Anarchy finale finished last night, some of the show’s main actors had already had their last days on set. Kim Coates (who plays Tig) and David Labrava (Happy) had their final days filming on… »

The Colbert Report Has Its Offical End Date

10 hours ago

We know when Stephen Colbert will deliver his last Report on Comedy Central. On last night’s episode of The Colbert Report, Colbert announced the official end date of the late night show, telling fans that its final episode would air on Thursday, Dec. 18. In true Colbert fashion, the host made the announcement as part of a hilarious pitch for the paperback release of his book, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t. “Stephen Colbert, the guy you’ve seen here every night for nine years will be gone,” Colbert said holding up a copy of the book in his hands. “All you’ll have left of me is this book. So pick up America Again in paperback for a loved one. Or for a hated one. Go to your local independent book store, because I have a longtime war against Amazon, and I will never relent. Or — buy it on Amazon, »

The Cream of the Crop of Pretty Little Liars Wikis

10 hours ago

Fans of the ABC Family drama thriller Pretty Little Liars received some startling news this week. Actress Lucy Hale, who play Aria Montgomery, revealed that the 7th season of the hit show will be the last. The show is currently in its fifth season which will conclude in early 2015, so that does give die hard fans two more years to watch the antics of Spencer, Aria, and the rest of the gang. The seventh season of the show will conclude in late 2016 or early 2017. There has been rumors floating around that there could potentially be a Pretty Little Liars movie. Though ABC Family has not confirmed this to be true, Hale stated in an interview that there, “might be a movie.” Other hit TV shows like The X-Files and Sex and the City have made movies (2 each) so why not Pretty Little Liars? We at TV Overmind know that fans »

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5 Review: “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here”

10 hours ago

This wasn’t an all-out Halloween themed episode of The Vampire Diaries but the timing of the Whitmore homecoming corn maze certainly felt appropriate as things quickly turned bloody. It would be easy to pin the events of the night all on Stefan.  After all, if he didn’t give up on Damon so easily and turn into the biggest jerk, Enzo never would have snapped Ivy’s neck.  Ivy is the typical annoying newbie vampire that Stefan essentially dropped on Caroline’s doorstep for her to deal with.  If she wasn’t so eager to run out and feed on innocent people, Tyler wouldn’t have hit a kid in the road.  Actually that part could have happened either way because Tyler was texting and driving, but I think I made my point that this is the worst version of Stefan we’ve ever seen. Luckily, he’s starting »

VIP Sports Box and Other Solid Streaming Sports Sites

10 hours ago

I’ve been on the record as saying that there are very few things that people are more passionate about than sports. Whether that’s because they grew up watching them with their siblings, parents, grandparents, or, well, all of the above, they will undoubtedly go to great lengths in order to make sure they don’t miss a second of the action. And since actually landing tickets to the events isn’t always possible, the next best thing is cozying up on a couch and watching the game on a big screen TV. Problem is, prices of cable is sky-rocketing, with TV services trying to do charge out the wazoo because there aren’t very many alternatives that people really know about or trust. But thanks to streaming video channels like Hulu, Netflix and others, fans of TV shows and movies have been supplied endless hours of content, with a library that is stocked… »

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

30 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 12:47 PM, PDT

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”

30 October 2014 12:47 PM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 11:58 AM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 11:34 AM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 11:09 AM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 10:18 AM, PDT

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”

30 October 2014 9:53 AM, PDT

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)

30 October 2014 9:52 AM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 9:45 AM, PDT

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

30 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT

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, »
