'Falling Skies' at Comic-Con: David Eick, cast tease what happens next

9 hours ago

Falling Skies is halfway through its fourth season, which saw a lot of changes from season 3, along with the addition of new showrunner David Eick. With the 2nd Mass separated after an Espheni attack, our ensemble cast found themselves in very different worlds from one another.

“In Tom’s world we were in darkness. Lexi’s world — it was light. It was almost like Munchkinland,” Eick said during the show’s Comic-Con panel. “In Anne’s world it was very gritty but stripped down.”

At Comic-Con, Eick and the show’s cast teased what’s to come on Falling Skies »

Watch Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore audition for 'Bates Motel'

13 hours ago

Finding the perfect actors for your show is a painstaking art: A few right moves, and you can back up an Emmy truck next to that Brinks truck. A couple of wrong moves, and the whole project is a disaster.

Bates Motel executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin certainly had their hands full when they set out to cast their contemporary Pyscho prequel for A&E. At Comic-Con on Friday, they treated the audience to a behind-the-scenes look at Bates’ audition process, screening footage of Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, and Max Thieriot trying on their character for the first time. »

'Agents of Shield' gag reel: It takes a few takes to save the world

14 hours ago

Last summer at Comic-Con, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were an unproven bunch tasked with spreading Marvel’s Avengers universe to television. After an up and down first season that alternately fascinated and frustrated viewers, the show got picked up by ABC in May for a second season. C’mon, who was really worried that they brought Agent Phil Coulsen back to life just to pull the plug after 22 episodes?

Today—just one day after production began on season 2—the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang was back together in San Diego for the show’s panel to tease upcoming »

Vera Farmiga doesn't get why that 'Bates Motel' kiss was a big deal

17 hours ago

When the Bates Motel cast stopped by EW’s Comic-Con hangout, there was one central topic of discussion: that kiss.

Fans know the one. When Norman decided he wanted to kill himself in the season 2 finale, Norma found him out in the woods, gun in hand. There, she finally revealed the fact that he was behind his own father’s murder. But to stop him from pulling the trigger, Norma kissed him like she meant it.
