J.R. Ramirez joins 'Arrow' season 3 as Wildcat

7 hours ago

For those Arrow fans wondering how Laurel might start to make the transition from feisty district attorney to leather-wearing vigilante, well, we might have just figured it out.

EW has confirmed that J.R. Ramirez is joining Arrow’s third season as Ted “Wildcat” Grant. Ted is an ex-boxer who will run a gym for underprivileged youth in Starling City. But how might Laurel fit into this picture? Well, in the comics, Ted is a member of the Justice Society of America, and it just so happens that he specializes in training crimefighters such as Black Canary. So maybe Laurel will »

See the 'New Girl' gang reunited in season 4 promo art

7 hours ago

Who’s that girl? It’s… an Idiot.

That’s according to New Girl’s season 4 imagery. EW can exclusively reveal the first one-sheet for the Fox comedy, which finds Jess (Zooey Deschanel) in fine company, including—but not limited to—her ex-boyfriend/roomfriend Nick (Jake Johnson). After enduring a post-breakup couples cruise and deciding to put a pin in their romantic relationship in the season-three finale, the roomfriends are set to navigate the choppy waters of cohabitation when the show returns this fall.

“Roommates. Lovers. Idiots.” This verbiage does beg a few questions: Does deeming Nick and Jess “idiots” serve as a judgment? »

Watch Charlie Hunnam greet 'Sons of Anarchy' fans in Comic-Con video

7 hours ago

When Charlie Hunnam couldn’t make it to Sunday’s emotional Sons of Anarchy panel at Comic-Con, the actor knew he had to make it up to the fans. After all, this was the show’s last visit to Hall H.

Now, everyone can see the video Hunnam scripted himself to fill the void his absence left behind. Soa executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the short, told the crowd it was his all-time favorite scene to shoot because the guys—including castmates Tommy Flanagan, Mark Boone Junior, and Kim Coates—had so much fun making it.

Watch Matt Lauer and Al Roker's deadly serious 'Sharknado 2' cameo

8 hours ago

A Sharknado’s coming to Manhattan, and Matt Lauer and Al Roker are on the story.

Sharknado star Ian Ziering stopped by The Today Show this morning to chat about last summer’s ridiculous hit and the upcoming sequel: Sharknado 2: The Second One. And he brought along a new clip that features some of Today’s familiar faces.

According to Roker’s meteorological analysis, it looks like there will be two(!) Sharknados hitting Manhattan in the sequel, and that it’s possible they’ll merge somewhere on the Upper East Side, leading to a possible EF5 Sharknado.

After previewing the clip, »

Kyra Sedgwick will guest star on 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

8 hours ago

Kyra Sedgwick has just closed a deal to return to TV: She will guest-star in two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine this season, EW has learned.

Sedgwick, whose seven-season run on The Closer ended in 2012, will play a different kind of deputy chief—Madeline Wuntch, the steely longtime rival of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher, who received an Emmy nomination earlier this month). Now in a higher-ranking position than Holt, Deputy Chief Wuntch is evaluating all of the precincts, and she’s aiming to take him down—along with the rest of the Nine-Nine.

She will make her first appearance in the second episode of season two, »

Boyish enthusiasm shines in 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls' premiere

23 hours ago

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive in the wild. He’s proven that. But can he teach celebrities how to do the same? That’s the fun of Grylls’ newest series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, in which Grylls takes celebrities into the wild for 48-hour adventures, where they’ll jump out of helicopters, eat worms, and, if they’re Zac Efron, rappel down a waterfall.

In the premiere of Running Wild, Bear picked up Zac Efron for a two-day journey through the Catskills that could not have been more adorable if they had tried. Zac, a lifelong »

Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

28 July 2014 11:19 AM, PDT

Update: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy’s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode. »

Watch Rob Lowe's delightfully bonkers Shark Week promo

28 July 2014 10:54 AM, PDT

You thought this guy was the King of Summer? Nope.

Clearly, only one man is truly awesome (and crazy) enough to trek across the ocean atop two great whites, nonchalantly tossing chum in the air as a hot mermaid hitches a ride by his side. That man’s name: Rob Lowe, erstwhile Parks and Rec star, once and future Lifetime luminary, and all-around swell guy. He isn’t appearing in any Discovery specials this year as part of the network’s annual Shark Week—but he is doing some splendidly ridiculous stuff in this exclusive promo.

Oh, you want to »

28 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT

This post contains plot details of “Karma,” the True Blood episode that aired on July 27. Read our full recap here.

 

The writer/director of Sunday’s installment of True Blood, Angela Robinson, took EW inside the big Sarah Newlin reveal and her personal inspiration for Bill’s legal consultation.

What was the genesis of the idea that Sarah Newlin would be the antidote to Hep-v?

We really wanted to bring Anna Camp back, and Sarah Newlin was still out there. We didn’t really want to create a whole new Big Bad for this season. Instead of having the story spiral out, »

Sarah Palin is going rogue with her own online news channel

28 July 2014 9:14 AM, PDT

After spending years criticizing supposed failures of the liberal media, Sarah Palin has decided to take matters into her own hands. On Sunday night, the former Republican vice presidential candidate announced the Sarah Palin Channel, a subscription-based news website where Palin promises to “talk directly to you” without a need to “please the powers that be.”

The channel already includes video takes on Vladimir Putin (so you will be able to see Russia from Palin’s media coverage), special education in schools, and a quote of the day (today’s is from Thomas Paine). There’s a running tally of »

'Sleepy Hollow' producer previews new monsters, gives season 2 scoop

28 July 2014 8:10 AM, PDT

War is coming to Sleepy Hollow. And he bought a new outfit for the occasion.

As you’ll see from the following exclusive sketches, Fox’s delightfully insane supernatural drama is planning a second season that’ll be bigger (18 episodes, as opposed to last year’s 13), badder, and most definitely more terrifying. EW chatted with Sleepy executive producer Roberto Orci about some of the beasts who’ll be spooking Ichabod and Abbie this year—including a beefed-up Moloch, a creepy take on the Pied Piper, and a mysterious being known as the Kindred—as well as some burning questions about the season more generally. »

Enough, already: Why I'm quitting 'The Leftovers'

27 July 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

That’s it. I quit. No more.

For weeks, I’ve stuck it out with The Leftovers, which many critics (including me) have described as one of the bleakest, most brutal, most depressing dramas on television. But it wasn’t until Sunday’s episode, “Gladys,” that I decided I’d had enough. I refuse to watch another minute of this show.

It wasn’t just that a woman (the Gladys of the title, played by Marceline Hugot) got stoned to death in the episode. I’ve seen worse on my all-time favorite show, Breaking Bad. What I objected to wasn’t the violence. »
