Dennis Quaid Joins "Fortitude" In S2 Trailer

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Launching last year on both Sky Atlantic in the UK and Pivot in the Us, the Arctic Circle-set mystery thriller "Fortitude" scored good notices for its tale of a murder in a part English, part Norwegian community.

Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Richard Dormer, Sofie Grabol and Johnny Harris starred in the series and though ratings weren't great, they were enough to greenlight a second season which is currently slated to hit in early 2017.

Today, the first trailer is out for the second season and confirms the involvement of Dennis Quaid in this outing. Others onboard for the second round including Michelle Fairley ("Game of Thrones"), Robert Sheehan ("Misfits"), Ken Stott ("The Hobbit") and Parminder Nagra ("E.R.") along with returnees like Grabol, Luke Treadaway and Mia Jexen.

Blu-ray Review – Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988)

27 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Return of the Killer Tomatoes, 1988.

Directed by John De Bello.

Starring Anthony Starke, George Clooney, Karen Mistal, John Astin, Steve Lundquist, Michael Villani, Rick Rockwell, J. Stephen Peace and Charlie Jones.

Synopsis:

Mad scientist Professor Gangreen is at it again as he prepares a new tomato army disguised as humans to take over the world. No, really…

It’s always fun to take a peek back at the early career of a current A-lister and the pre-superstar works of George Clooney are some of the most enjoyable to visit, especially as the man himself doesn’t appear to be ashamed of what he had to appear in to get noticed, unlike some (asking Renée Zellweger to sign a copy of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation just to see the reaction ranks very high on the bucket list). Whether it’s the funny-for-all-the-wrong-reasons turd that is Combat Academy or the »

HIV Positive Characters Still Absent on TV as Infection Rates Rise

24 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A straight African-American woman finds out she’s contracted HIV from her ex-husband and has to navigate how it affects her personally as well as professionally, since she works as a physician’s assistant in a busy county hospital.

You won’t find this story on television today, but it was a prominent, ongoing storyline twenty years ago on the number one series on television during the 1996-97 season: NBC’s “ER.”

While characters with HIV and AIDS were becoming more common on television in the mid ’90s as the issue gained prominence on a global level, the story of Jeanie Boulet (played by Gloria Reuben) was particularly groundbreaking because she was not only a regular on a network television show, but a straight, minority woman and, most importantly, her character contracting HIV was not a death sentence, allowing audiences to learn from her story.

24 June 2016 1:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

TV Line is reporting that James Carpinello (The Punisher, The Mob Doctor) has signed on for a recurring guest role in season three of Gotham, where he’ll play Carmine Falcone’s son Mario Falcone.

The official character description reads: “The son of feared mob boss Carmine Falcone (John Doman), Carpinello’s Mario has rejected his family’s criminal ways and made a legitimate life for himself as a well-respected, Ivy League-educated ER doctor. He’s kind, honest and trustworthy, making him the black sheep of the Falcone clan. But his arrival in Gotham will create major waves in the personal life of Jim Gordon, who at the end of Season 2 left town to find and win back his pregnant fiancee Lee.”

Carpinello is the latest addition to the cast for season three of Gotham following Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) as Valerie Vale and Maggie Geha (Ted 2) as Poison Ivy. »

Gotham: Season 3 to Introduce Mario Falcone

June 23, 2016 – by Mark Cook

Following the news that Jamie Chung had been cast as Valerie Vale, Maggie Geha as an updated Poison Ivy, and rumors that casting for the Mad Hatter are currently in place, Fox has now cast James Carpinello as Mario Falcone. Carpinello is best known for his work in Person of Interest and The Good Wife.

First introduced in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Batman: Dark Victory, Mario Falcone is one of the sons of mob boss Carmine Falcone, who was set to be the heir to the Falcone Family.

Gotham: Season 3 looks to present Carpinello’s Mario Falcone as rejecting the family “business”, and looks to establish himself as an Ivy League alumni currently working as an ER doctor.  He will also be used to create tension between Jim Gordon and Lee Thompkins’ relationship.

David Simon’s ‘Show Me a Hero’: How Director Paul Haggis Controlled Chaos

23 June 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO limited series “Show Me a Hero” is noisy. Cacophony reigns in crowded city council meetings packed with yelling onlookers and jostling media microphones. It’s hard to figure out just what is going on. Oscar Isaac as beleaguered Nick Wasicsko, the youngest mayor in America, pounds his gavel to no avail. Adapted from Lisa Belkin’s 1999 book by David Simon and his “The Wire” collaborator Bill Zorzi, “Show Me a Hero” digs into the unsexy ’80s true story about the pitched battle between the haves and have-nots in Yonkers, New York over court-ordered public housing. When HBO finally greenlit the series, it was with the knowledge that this story is as resonant as ever.

While the WGA-nominated writing is brilliant, a pivotal member of this team of storytellers earning rave reviews is DGA-nominated Paul Haggis, who directed all six episodes. Haggis said he eagerly leapt at his first television »

How ‘Teen Titans Go!’ Animated Superheroes Got Goofy (Emmy Watch)

23 June 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After weathering an initial storm of fan outrage, “Teen Titans Go!” has pulled off its risky reboot from darkness to self-parody, broadening its reach and getting even wackier in its third season on Cartoon Network.

If anything, the change in tone and character design (more Flash-based) have magnified their iconic traits: Robin (Scott Menville) has become even more neurotic in his inability to control the Titans; Raven (Tara Strong), the half-demon, demonstrates her conflicted Goth nature; Starfire (Hynden Walch), the warrior princess, remains unshakably optimistic when everything seems out of control; Cyborg (Khary Payton) has grown more soulful; and the green, shape-shifting Beast Boy (Greg Cipes) has increased his musical arsenal as the prankster.

And embracing their sillier sides has suited the voice cast, which has remained intact since the original “Teen Titans” series (2003-2007) and grown closer during Friday’s recording sessions.

The Originals Season 4: Containment Actress Cast as Bisexual Werewolf

Containment‘s Christina Moses has caught the CW bug.

Fresh from her one-season run on the network’s contagion thriller, the actress is jumping to The Originals in a recurring role, Deadline reports. (Both shows are Ep’d by Julie Plec. so we’re guessing the two of them hit it off during their time on Containment).

A version of this story on Maura Tierney first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Comedy/Drama/Actors Emmy Issue.

Half the time, she captivated as the turbulent Dr. Abby Lockhart on “ER,” followed by poignant stints on “The Good Wife” and “Rescue Me. “ But with Showtime’s “The Affair,” the 51-year-old actress has finally gotten that brass ring of a role, as a jilted Upper West Side trust-fund baby turned philanthropist and matriarch.

Film News: Anton Yelchin, Chekov from ‘Star Trek’ Reboot, Dies at 27

20 June 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – The loss of a up-and-coming actor at an early age is always a tragic event, and Anton Yelchin has been added to that roster. In a freak automobile accident at his home, Yelchin died on June 19th, 2016. He was best known for embracing the role of Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” film series reboot. He was 27 years old.

Yelchin came to Chicago in 2011 to promote his romantic drama “Like Crazy,” and his charismatic youth was confidently within his burgeoning career. At that point, at 22 years old, he had already done the “Star Trek” reboot and “Terminator: Salvation,” and was looking forward to roles in “The Beaver” and as a voice actor in the first “Smurfs” film. He was intelligent, and had a good-head-on-his-shoulders perspective regarding the sometimes crazy world of the film business.
