'Saturday Night Live' adds Leslie Jones as castmember

1 hour ago

To the surprise of absolutely no one who caught this during last month's season premiere, Leslie Jones has been named a castmember of Saturday Night Live. Jones started writing for the NBC sketch comedy staple in January, and, according to Deadline, was previously a finalist for a cast spot that ultimately went to Sasheer Zamata. The stand-up comedian has made multiple stops by Weekend Update, including a rather controversial bit in May when she joked that, while she may be single now, she would have been "the No. 1 slave draft pick." Amid backlash, she stood by the skit, tweeting, “I »

Vinnie Jones joins 'Arrow' as villain Brick for multi-episode arc

1 hour ago

Arrow has just cast a juggernaut of an actor to play DC Comics villain Brick in the show's third season. Vinnie Jones has been chosen to play Danny "Brick" Brickwell, on episodes 10, 11, and 12 of Arrow's current season, EW has confirmed.

'Gotham' costume secrets: Revealing details you may have missed

2 hours ago

A huge amount of thought went into fall's most lavishly costumed new show. Below Fox's Gotham designer, Lisa Padovani, reveals the inspirations behind the clothing for Gotham City's most notorious villains (and hero): Selina Kyle: "She is probably the most modern; we did a steampunk variation on her. Her goggles on top her head are like her ears. She’s always sneaking around so she’s all in black. It's a cat burglar feeling." Oswald Cobblepot: "Everybody’s got such an iconic image in their mind of what the Penguin is. We’ve seen a lot of shows where »

The 'Botched' season 2 trailer is filled with really terrible life choices

2 hours ago

"I'm ready to get my sexy back," former Major League player Jose Canseco says in the trailer for season 2 of Botched. And if all goes as planned, his "sexy" should be back in no time. Botched is an E! reality show that unites two plastic surgeons who specialize in fixing plastic surgeries gone wrong with victims of those plastic surgeries gone wrong. Last season's patients included a woman whose breast implants were so big they turned into one giant boob, another woman who was on her seventh nose job, and... Janice Dickinson. Judging from the trailer on People's website, this »

So, who's dead on 'The Affair'? Fiona Apple helps us figure it out

2 hours ago

The Affair has been labeled the Rashomon of marriage dramas, thanks to its he said/she said structure—but it's also a pretty compelling mystery. The two main characters, Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), are telling the story of their affair to a detective who appears to be investigating a murder. So far, all we know is this: Someone died. And that someone is a man, probably a local, though he was run down on a road that's primarily used by tourists. And he died the night of a party. And Alison misses him now that he's gone. »

5 hours ago

Fox's Sleepy Hollow is getting another infusion of British talent: EW has learned exclusively that Yorkshire native Max Brown has been cast in a pivotal role. Brown may be best known for playing medical examiner Evan Marks on The CW's Beauty and the Beast and Edward Seymour, brother of King Henry VIII's third wife Jane, on Showtime's The Tudors.

Bethenny Frankel returns to 'The Real Housewives of New York'

6 hours ago

The past becomes present again, as Bethenny Frankel returns to the franchise that made her popular. Bravo has announced that Frankel will be returning to The Real Housewives of New York for season seven, along with Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan. Frankel left the show after season three, attributing her departure to drama between cast members on the show, though her numerous spin-off shows with then-fiance Jason Hoppy and subsequent talk show also left little room in her schedule. The news comes an opportune moment for both Frankel and the Rhony franchise. »

Fox cuts 'Mulaney' order to 13 episodes

8 hours ago

Get ready for less of Fox's Mulaney. EW has confirmed that the network has cut its initial 16-episode order to 13 episodes, wrapping production just in time before starting work on its 14th episode. This comes at a reversal of the network's order of an additional 10 episodes of the series back in spring. The show premiered to low ratings and mixed reviews, with 2.3 million viewers and a 1.0 in the 18-49 demographic—a 50 percent drop from its lead-in, Family Guy. The following week maintained around the same numbers, with a tick upwards to 1.1 in the 18-49 demographic. The show will continue to air in its 9:30 p. »

Elena agrees to leave town with Stefan in 'Vampire Diaries' sneak peek

9 hours ago

For five seasons, The Vampire Diaries took place in Mystic Falls, Virginia, where animal attacks were a common occurrence and the Founding Families had more than one secret up their sleeves. But thanks to the Travelers spell that ended season five, vampires can no longer enter Mystic Falls—which means that suddenly, the small town is no longer prone to animal attacks, and its population has decreased by at least 15 percent. Most importantly, for some of our favorite supernatural characters, it means starting over. Although Elena, Alaric, and Caroline can simply run off to Whitmore, Stefan made a choice to relocate to Georgia. »

'Manhattan' finale: Deconstructing the atomic bomb drama with creator Sam Shaw

21 hours ago

Implosion. Pre-detonation. Radioactivity. Meltdowns. The terms that define Wgn’s atomic bomb drama Manhattan also apply to its characters, a mix of men and women trying to stop a world war by creating a weapon that could destroy the planet completely. There isn't a simple equation among them. Throughout season one, which came to an end Sunday night with its thirteenth episode (“Perestroika”), the show mastered the art of contradiction, presenting heroes you root for even as they betray their own better natures. In the finale, the scientists of Los Alamos are still far from the breakthroughs they will need »

'The Walking Dead' star Michael Cudlitz talks about the big mission to Washington, D.C.

22 hours ago

[Spoiler Alert: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.] The man is persistent, give him that. Sgt. Abraham Ford wants to get to Washington, D.C. and is pretty insistent on recruiting Rick and Co. to join them. But, as we saw on Sunday’s “Strangers” episode of The Walking Dead, that persistence may have paid off as Judith kinda, sorta convinced daddy to sign on. However, there is now the whole Gareth situation to consider. After losing Terminus to zombies, Gareth and a few of his cannibalistic cohorts kidnapped Bob and feasted on his leg. How much is Abraham responsible for that since he and the others would »

'The Walking Dead' star Steven Yeun on if Glenn would have kept Tara's secret from Maggie

22 hours ago

[Spoiler Alert: Read on only if you have already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.] Blame it on Glenn. Well, not just Glenn. But blame it on the whole group for not letting Rick go back and finish off the Terminus folks when they had the chance. As a result, Gareth is now finishing off a tasty meal consisting of Bob Stookey’s leg. But therein lies the dilemma of season 5 of The Walking Dead. How far is too far in a world now dealing almost exclusively in extremes? We chatted with the man who plays Glenn, Steven Yeun, to get his thoughts on season 5’s first two episodes, whether they were wrong to not »
