The Originals at Comic-Con: Joseph Morgan Previews “Vampire-Centric” Season 3

9 hours ago

The Originals has always been a show about family, and it was very much all about the Mikaelson family in Season 2 of the CW vampire drama, with both Esther, Mikael, Kol, and Finn returning, Freya being introduced, and the siblings’ Aunt Esther serving as the big bad. And while family will always be a major theme in The Originals, it will be explored in a little bit of a different way in the show’s upcoming third season, one that series star Joseph Morgan called “vampire-centric” when we spoke with him at San Diego Comic-Con. During our roundtable conversation with Morgan and reporters from other major news outlets, The Originals star discussed how the new threats that will emerge in Season 3 won’t be immediate relatives of the Mikaelsons but instead sired vampires of the original family that have come to New Orleans to seek vengeance, making this season less about Klaus, »

Once Upon a Time at Comic-Con: Jennifer Morrison & Colin O’Donoghue Discuss Emma & Hook’s Relationship in Season 5

11 hours ago

Once Upon a Time‘s fourth season ended on quite the cliffhanger with Emma protecting Storybrooke from the Darkness by becoming the new “Dark One” herself, and as photos and videos previewing the Season 5 premiere have shown us, we’ll be dealing with a very different Emma when the new season kicks off, the “Dark Swan,” as the show’s producers are calling her. With so much change ahead for Emma, we had to ask how this newer, darker version of the character would affect not only herself but her relationships with her loved ones when we spoke with Jennifer Morrison and Colin O’Donoghue at the Once Upon a Time press room at San Diego Comic-Con. In a roundtable discussion with Morrrison, O’Donoghue, and other reporters, both actors touched upon the tremendous impact that Emma’s transformation will have on her and Hook’s relationship and if it’s possible that, »

Singer Shawn Mendes to Guest Star in The 100 Season 3

14 hours ago

The 100 fans still have a long wait until Season 3 of the post-apocalyptic series premieres on The CW, but that doesn’t mean that the flood of news on the upcoming season is slowing down at all. The latest bit of info is that singer Shawn Mendes, most famous for his hit song “Stitches” and just coming off playing on Taylor Swift’s huge 1989 tour, will be guest starring in the Season 3 premiere. The casting news was first reported by E! Online. In the Season 3 premiere, Mendes will play “a scrappy young Ark survivor,” whose name may or may not be Macallan, as evidenced by the photo above from the singer’s Instagram. Whatever his name is, though, Mendes’ character on The 100 “gets into a tricky situation and uses his particular talents to get out of it.” Could those “particular talents” mean his singing ability? It sure sounds like it,…

Bloodline Season 2: Ben Mendelsohn Returning as Series Regular

14 hours ago

While opinions on how great Netflix’s dark family drama Bloodline may vary, one thing that all viewers and critics can agree on is that Ben Mendelsohn was absolutely terrific as Danny Rayburn, the eldest of the four Rayburn children and black sheep of the family, who returns home after being away for years and begins causing trouble as soon as arrives back in the Keys. In fact, Mendelsohn’s performance was so sensational that it earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Unfortunately for fans of the show and the actor, it appeared that Mendelsohn’s time on Bloodline would be done after its first season, due to the fact that (Spoiler Alert) Danny’s brother John (Kyle Chandler) kills him in the penultimate episode of Season 1. However, that no longer seems to be the case, as the show’s executive producer Glenn Kessler »

Watch Tom Cruise Face Off Against Jimmy Fallon in The Tonight Show’s Lip Sync Battle

28 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT

Tom Cruise has proven that he’s pretty much up for anything in his career, as the actor, who stars in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which hits theaters this Friday, has already proven that he does his own stunts, including hanging out of a plane at 5,000 feet. However, the question was, on last night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, would the courage of doing those insane stunts be able to help Cruise go up against Fallon in the late night show’s latest edition of Lip Sync Battle. And while we won’t give away how well Cruise did during last night’s match-up, let’s just say that the actor’s full-on commitment to everything he does certainly didn’t hurt him. In his Lip Sync Battle against Fallon, Cruise began with The Weeknd’s summer song “Can’t Feel My Face,” before Fallon took it back to »
