NCIS: La's Renée Felice Smith Teases Episode 200's Nell Reveal, Hetty vs. Tiger (!) — Plus: Secrets From the Set

NCIS: La's Renée Felice Smith Teases Episode 200's Nell Reveal, Hetty vs. Tiger (!) — Plus: Secrets From the Set
When CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles first came calling, New York-bred Renée Felice Smith had just graduated from Nyu’s Tisch School of the Arts with little more on her resume than an Off-Broadway show and a passed-over CW pilot — Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s The Wyoming Project, which she likens to “Little House on the Prairie meets Party of Five” — on her resume.

As such, being courted to join the high-octane NCIS spinoff for Season 2 “was really big, huge,” the actress warmly recalls. “It changed my life.”

Critics Pick the Best Modern Shows Set in the ’80s, From ‘Stranger Things’ to ‘The Americans’

Critics Pick the Best Modern Shows Set in the ’80s, From ‘Stranger Things’ to ‘The Americans’
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the best modern show set in the ’80s? (To qualify, the show must have aired sometime 2000-present.)

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Uproxx

Recency bias would suggest “Halt and Catch Fire,” even though its strongest season, this last one, took place in the 1990s, or “Stranger Things,” which is an extremely fun show but not an all-timer. That leaves two clear-cut favorites: “Freaks and Geeks,” Paul Feig and Judd Apatow’s ode to high school outcasts; and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.” The former is one of the great one-season wonders, one of the best shows ever made about teenagers, and — between Feig,

The First: Sean Penn is heading to Mars in new sci-fi series

Joseph Baxter Sep 21, 2017

Sean Penn is set to star in a space exploration series on Channel 4 called The First, from the creator of House Of Cards...

Sean Penn, the controversial, two-time-Oscar-winning actor who first achieved notable acclaim for playing one-liner-spouting stoner Jeff Spicoli, is about to do something that he’s never done in his storied acting career: headline a television series, specifically, streaming series The First for Channel 4 and Hulu.

Penn, like an increasing amount of A-list actors, will take the television plunge in this new project, which was given a straight-to-series order by the streaming outlet back in May - a space exploration-themed story set in a near-future that will follow humanity’s first mission to colonise Mars.

Interestingly, the visionary behind the series is not one typically associated with the space/sci-fi/adventure genre. Beau Willimon, who is best known as the creator, writer and

Jason Bateman Recalls His Roots as a Child Actor
Jason Bateman is best known as a comedic straight man, earning raves in critically acclaimed projects such as “Juno,” “Zootopia” and “Arrested Development,” which will be returning to Netflix this summer. “Without question that was the most important role I’ve ever had,” says Bateman of his portrayal of family mainstay Michael Bluth. He’s also starring in (and directing four episodes of) “Ozark,” the moody, intense Netflix thriller that he also exec produces.

Bateman has been acting since childhood. His first Variety mention was on Nov. 16, 1979, when he signed with the Dorothy Day Otis/Jack Rose Agency at age 10.

Walk of Fame Honoree Jason Bateman Reflects on His Career, From ‘Silver Spoons’ to ‘Ozark’

Walk of Fame Honoree Jason Bateman Reflects on His Career, From ‘Silver Spoons’ to ‘Ozark’
If you grew up in the 1980s, and you were a connoisseur of small-screen culture, then you remember Jason Bateman as the preppy, freckled and precociously winsome Derek Taylor, the comic foil to Ricky Schroder’s tow-headed teenage heartthrob on the NBC sitcom “Silver Spoons.”

“I was still just a little kid, kind of a wise ass in my normal life and kind of troubled around school, and there was a natural mischievousness to me, and I remember that character sort of lent itself to that part of me,” says Bateman, who is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 26. “I enjoyed that role, because I could be that kind of kid and not get in trouble for it. I could actually get compensated for it, which was kind of nice. I was like, ‘Ok, maybe I’ll be a character actor, I’ll be in comedy.’ I

Emmy Nomination Burning Questions: How Far Can ‘This Is Us,’ Millie Bobby Brown and ‘SNL’ Ride Their Waves?
It feels like Emmy season has already been going on for months – and it technically has, thanks to For Your Consideration events, which started in the spring, but now will pick up in intensity and frequency. For now it’s truly showtime: Phase One ballots have been sent to the more than 20,000 members of the Television Academy, and voting is underway.

After all the screenings, campaigning and coverage, it’s now up to the voters to decide. The ultimate category nominations will be revealed on Thursday, July 13, at the Television Academy’s Saban Theatre in North Hollywood. (And then we’re on to the final competition!)

But before the first round of voting ends on June 26, here are some of this year’s burning questions inside the Primetime Emmy race:

This week’s question: What is the scariest moment or scene on TV?

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

Though there are moments within “Penny Dreadful” (the seance) and “The X-Files” (“Home”) that left me spooked, the title for scariest TV scene has to go to the only show to give me nightmares — actual, legitimate nightmares. After watching the first two episodes of “Hannibal,” I woke up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and haunted by a bright red room with blood running down the walls — twice! Two weeks in a row, “Hannibal” ruined my peaceful slumber, and I had to stop watching the show live (and during the night entirely). Each week,
