Candyman Actress Vanessa Williams Joins The Cast Of The Flash Season 2

29 September 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Flash season 2 has found its Mama West. According to Variety, Vanessa Williams (Melrose Place, Soul Food, Murder One, Candyman) has joined the cast of the CW series as Iris West’s (Candice Patton) mother and Joe West’s (Jesse L. Martin) wife. All details relating to her character - including which episode she'll debut in - are being kept under wraps for now, but DC Comic history might provide some clues as to her exact identity. Though her name on the show isn't specified, Mrs. West could turn out to be one of two characters: Nadine West, or Fran Russel - who was the biological mother of Iris from the thirteenth century. Hey, now that time travel and alternate realities have been introduced, anything's possible! We've had no hints about why Iris' mother might have been out of the picture thus far, but don't expect it to be something »

‘The Flash’ Casts ‘Candyman’ Star as Iris West’s Mother

29 September 2015 5:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Flash” has found Mama West. Variety has confirmed that “Candyman” and “Melrose Place” actress Vanessa Williams — not to be confused with the “Ugly Betty” and “Desperate Housewives” star of the same name — has been cast as Iris West’s (Candice Patton) mother and Joe West’s (Jesse L. Martin) wife in season two of The CW drama.

Williams’ debut episode is being kept under wraps, as are any other details about the previously absent matriarch.

To confuse matters further, Williams also starred in the TV series adaptation of “Soul Food” — based on the 1997 movie starring the other Vanessa Williams — in the role originated by Vivica A. Fox. Her previous small screen appearances include “Chicago Hope” and “Murder One.”

As Variety first reported, fellow “Candyman” star Tony Todd was recently cast as the voice of “Flash” villain Zoom in the show’s sophomore season.

The show is expected to delve »

TV Review: ‘Murder in the First,’ Season 2

5 June 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How time flies. “Murder One,” which followed a single trial over an entire season, felt enormously ambitious when Steven Bochco introduced the series 20 years ago. Now the show plucked from its rib, “Murder in the First,” returns to TNT for a second season as a solidly crafted if mostly undemanding piece of summer entertainment, shifting to a new high-profile case with a ripped-from-the-headlines quality. Fast-paced and tense, the serialized construct isn’t a bad viewing option, even if it’s unlikely to rank first on many must-watch lists.

Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson are back as intrepid Bay Area detectives English and Mulligan, who almost immediately stumble upon a stop-the-presses case: Two teenagers shoot up a school bus, with one taking flight and triggering a massive manhunt, as questions of what motivated the pair slowly come into focus.

Morbid echoes of Columbine notwithstanding, there are new twists to the search, »

The Rise of the Slow Crime Procedural

6 March 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Television used to come in one type of package: episodic. Cops ­arrived at a murder scene, interviewed ­eccentric cameo players, bantered with regulars, and somehow figured that the highest-paid guest star did it. But if the lead actors were likable you half-watched the shows anyway, because in the pre-cable, pre-internet era, TV was more appliance than medium. One-offs occasionally found ways to spice up this bland recipe. The best was Columbo, which started by showing who did it and how, then fixated on duets between the rumpled prole hero and the guest murderers foolish enough to believe they could outsmart him. Every now and then you’d see a structural variation on the formula: a multipart adaptation of Fatal Vision, say, or Twin Peaks, or the barely remembered but influential Murder One (1995–97), which spent whole seasons on a single case. Those latter variations have belatedly become the model for the latest, »

'American Crime': Can a Single-Murder-Case Series Succeed on Network TV?

5 March 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"American Crime," premiering March 5 on ABC, is being touted as an innovative series for spending an entire season focusing on a single murder case, taking a wide-ranging look at the victims, the accused, and their extended families as a way of taking a broader look at the dynamics of a whole community. Of course, this isn't the first time it's been tried, but it could mark the first time that the approach actually works on network TV.

"American Crime" has secured a high-powered cast, including Timothy Hutton and Felicity Huffman. Nonetheless, after this season is over, the show will move on to a new case next year, with a new cast -- should the show prove a success and earn a renewal.

If that sounds a lot like HBO's "True Detective," that's not an accident. As the old joke goes, imitation is the sincerest form of television. In fact, series »
