Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, is speaking out against Lifetime’s upcoming biopic about her late daughter. In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, she said her family is “exhausted by the continuing misinformation” and pleaded to “let rest.”

Portia de Rossi joins season 4 of 'Scandal'

2 hours ago

When last we saw Olivia Pope, she was flying off into the sunset (or maybe just flying off) with Jake by her side—leaving behind a broken Fitz, who’d just lost his son and realized some horrible things about his father. D.C. now rests in the hands of Olivia’s own father, who once again took over B-613. So what awaits the team when season four starts up? How about a new face?

EW has confirmed that Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi will join Scandal’s fourth season for a multiple-episode arc. Ellen DeGeneres first announced the news on Twitter, »

'Downton Abbey' looks to bounce back from season 4

5 hours ago

Downton Abbey had a disappointing fourth season. While its 12 Emmy nominations—including one for Outstanding Drama Series and one for Michelle Dockery for Outstanding Lead Actress—suggest otherwise, many complained of lackluster storylines that fell flat compared to previous seasons.

Looking ahead to the show’s fifth season, however, Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary), Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), Gareth Neame (executive producer, Downton Abbey), and Rebecca Eaton (executive producer, Masterpiece) spoke at the Television Critics Association, addressing season-four criticism and what fans can look forward to in season five.

'Covert Affairs' star Chris Gorham talks about Auggie's surprising turn

16 hours ago

If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Covert Affairs, stop reading now. Chris Gorham takes us inside a very shirtless hour for Auggie that may have some fans of the show looking at the character differently.

The return of Auggie’s hacker ex, Natasha , is huge. How do you think fans will feel about him trading on that emotional capital and sleeping with her for the sake of the mission?

The next few episodes are gonna be really interesting to see how fans react to Auggie, because we really get to see him operate as a spy. »

20 hours ago

Another Oscar winner is coming to HBO: Anthony Hopkins has been cast in the cable drama’s TV reboot of the sci-fi classic Westworld.

The casting will mark the first potential regular TV gig for the acclaimed Silence of the Lambs and Thor actor, and continues the trend of Academy Award winners taking small-screen roles. He will be joined in the project by actress Evan Rachel Wood (Once and Again, True Blood).

No, Hopkins is not playing “the Yul Brynner role.” But the descriptions for both his character and Wood’s shed some insight into the secretive project’s storyline. »

'Arrow' producer reveals details of season 3's Big Bad and 'Flash' crossover episode

22 July 2014 11:53 AM, PDT

What’s that? You say you need to know what’s going to happen on this season of Arrow after last season’s absolutely bonkers finale that saw the greatest freighter-based showdown this side of Lost?

EW caught up with Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg—who now has his hands full with The CW’s other new flashy (get it?) superhero show The Flash (now you get it). But since Kreisberg is pulling double duty with the DC Comics heroes, that means he’s got double the scoop to offer.

Perhaps most pressing is the question of which villainous threat »

'Gotham': Penguin actor takes our bird-brained questions

22 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT

Those who have seen the pilot of Gotham agree: TV fans are going to be tweeting about Robin Lord Taylor this fall. The young actor and relative newcomer nabbed the role of Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin) on the upcoming Fox series, which details the origins of iconic characters in the Batman universe. In the first episode, we meet Cobblepot as an abused but ambitious underling for gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith). Taylor brings a desperate, jittery energy to the role that’s far more compelling than his campy predecessors—and with a first name like “Robin,” the actor »
