Julianna Margulies is a consummate performer and very believable in her role as Alicia Florrick on "The Good Wife." On "Late Night," though, she revealed that she has a little professional help with this particular role. Perhaps one of the reasons fans buy her so easily as a brilliant lawyer is because Margulies' real-life husband is a lawyer.
So he helps her understand some of the legal situations Alicia finds herself in. He also has a little fun poking at the understandable fabrications in the process that must be taken for television.
"he’ll be like, ‘Ok. That case would’ve taken 17 months. Not 42 minutes.'" Magulies said.
"It’s television!" Fallon responded, with Margulies adding, "We only have 42 minutes."
As television viewers have proven with shows like "The Killing" and "Murder One," they're not usually willing to stick around for a year or so waiting for a single case to be resolved. »

According to TVLine, another person with a connection to the Wesen will be appearing on Grimm later this season.
Jason Gedrick has signed on to play Craig Wendell, a murderer currently on his last days on death row. His defense at his trial was that the act was self-defense against the two monsters that attacked him, something that didn't hold water in court and made the man look mentally disturbed in addition to dangerously violent. However, now that Hank has been filled in about the Wesen and everything that Nick's been going through as a Grimm, it might not be too late to save the man from an untimely (and unjust) execution.
But can the two detectives find a loophole to let him go free without having to bring talk of monsters and shape-shifting into it?
In addition to Gedrick's upcoming role, which will feature in an episode this fall, »

Gedrick will play Craig Wendell, a murderer that Hank (Russell Hornsby) helped land on death row. But with only days until his sentence is carried out, Ferren’s claim that his crime was in self defense against a pair of “monsters” begins to sound less and less like the rantings of a lunatic to the man that put him away.

“He saw, she saw. It’s all on the table.”
Though it’s fair to say that the last season of Dexter had its fair share of detractors (especially when comparing the complete adoration that seemed to exist for its prior seasons), Showtime’s flagship series is still one of the best and most entertaining shows on television. With a season seven debut just less than two months away, the network has just released the official poster which hints at the earth-shattering secrets revealed on the season six finale.
As far as artistic promotional material is concerned, Dexter has always been on its A-game. Its opening credits still stands on the best ever conceived and every poster that hits prior to a new season is utterly tantalizing in its blood splattered minimalism. At this point, there’s not much more to say than “bring it on!”

It may be raining outside but here's a full casebook of detective yarns to lift the gloom, from Hawaii Five-o to Danger Mouse
The summer can be a dark time. Everyone else is on holiday, while you're staycationing. You want to sit outside, drinking chilled white burgundy on warm summer evenings, but you live in the UK, where a warm summer evening is a bit like the Snark: you could hunt forever and not find one. Plus, if you do find the elusive evening, it might have wasps in it, and those wasps can be excessively persistent. So best just to stay indoors, fire up the DVD player, and revert to a wintry life of crime. In the words of Adrian Monk, you'll thank me later.
Not in Hawaii for the summer? Well, thank goodness, given the crime rate. You're safer at home. But if you want a »

Chicago – Warner Brothers has been unleashing catalog titles on Blu-ray at a rate that would strain the bank account of pro athletes. Every week lately sees a wave of movies that have never been on Blu-ray before joining the HD revolution. This quartet is particularly varied with one timeless classic, an underrated performance from an underrated actor, and two moderate action movies. Pick your favorite. My order of preference is as follows:

Martin Scorsese’s breakthrough film is easily the best flick in this collection, one that actually makes my top 100 of all time. And it has lost None of its power in the four decades since it was first released. With one of Robert De Niro’s best performances, a confident style that announced the presence of one of cinema’s best directors, and a perfect HD transfer, “Mean Streets” is a must-own. »

A turn of events leads Miami Metro Homicide to ask Hannah for help in solving some old cases. As Dexter works with her, he begins to wonder if there's more to her than meets the eye.
Oooh, intriguing. We wonder what it is about Hannah that leads Miami Metro to ask for her help.

Strong willed, intelligent, feisty, relentless, outspoken. You’d be speaking of Lois Lane or Pauley Perrette?
Actually, both – which made the NCIS star the perfect match as the voice of the resourceful reporter for Superman vs. the Elite, the latest DC Comics Premiere Movie coming June 12 courtesy of Warner Home Video.
Perrette’s raspy vocal tones and spunky, never-back-down approach gives a new-yet-familiar perspective to the animated Lois Lane, particularly playing opposite the strong, traditional performance of Justice League veteran George Newbern in reprising his role as Superman.
Over nine seasons and more than 200 episodes, Perrette has mesmerized audiences with her portrayal of Gothy forensic specialist Abby Sciuto on NCIS, regularly the top rated drama series on primetime television. The role has elevated Paulette’s popularity into are air – in August 2011, she registered the top Q-score in all of primetime television. Not only was she the only female to rank among the Top 10 TV actors, »

He's certainly appeared in his fair share of TV flops, but now Jason Gedrick is heading to a sure-fire winner as the actor has signed on to "Dexter" Season 7 in a recurring role, joining the previously announced Ray Stevenson in what fans are hoping will be a return to its glory days for the series.
According to TVLine, during Season 7 (which premieres September 30th) Gedrick ("Luck", "Boomtown", "Murder One", "Necessary Roughness") will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case.
One of the most acclaimed shows on television, "Dexter" stars Michael C.

It's about that time of year when Showtime starts announcing "Dexter's" season-long gueststars and it is kicking things off with Jason Gedrick, who will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen's club over a multi-episode arc. Said gentlemen's club becomes linked to a high-profile murder case of the Miami Metro Homicide division
On the small screen, Gedrick has previously been seen on "Luck," "Desperate Housewives," "Windfall," "Boomtown" and, in our personal favorite, "Murder One," as young Hollywood star Neil Avedon, on trial throughout the season for the murder of a young girl.
There is no word yet as to the season's "big bad." We aren't sure we see the owner of a strip club as fitting that bill - perhaps Gedrick's character ends up on Dexter's table instead? "Dexter" premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Showtime.
In Season 7 of the dark drama, premiering Sept. 30, Gedrick will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen’s club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case.

The Killing was always a formally daring show. It’s not the first TV series to expand a single criminal investigation over the course of a season: Murder One and The Wire got there first. And it’s not the first TV series wherein every episode advances the plot forward one day at a time: David Milch used that structure in Deadwood and John From Cincinnati. Heck, The Killing is a remake of Forbrydelsen, a Danish TV drama much beloved by the sort of people who watch Danish TV dramas. The Killing’s first season was compelling, a sidelong exploration »
