Sunday night marked many firsts on The Good Wife: the start of Taye Diggs's guest arc; the introduction of Gunter, a hairy gentleman prone to bathing in the Florrick, Agos restroom; and the long-anticipated acting debut of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama's senior advisor. But most notably, The Good Wife somehow staged the most suspenseful bail hearing in TV and movie history. (Take that, Hitchcock!) The episode was also jam-packed with great dialogue. Let's run through the best lines: "It's the first time we've done this, isn't it?"Newly free Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry) utters this line »

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how “The Newsroom” would end when he began writing the final season "For most of the time, I didn’t know how the show was going to end,” he says. "I would have small images of what I wanted to see. But the closer I got to the end of the season in terms of writing, the more I was able to see the end of the season finale. Once we got there, it happened more easily than I thought it was going to.” “Godzilla” movie has a “Breaking Bad” easter egg For a split second in the opening credits, you can see Walter White’s name.

Make way! Political powerhouse Portia de Rossi is coming through. The Arrested Development and Ally McBeal veteran is set to guest star in a top-secret arc during season four of Scandal and we've got your first look of her in character. De Rossi was spotted filming in L.A. on the street with a mystery man who looks an awfully lot like Mistresses and Teen Wolf star Matthew Del Negro. Details on her role are being kept under wraps—as are most things Scandal.

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to box office smashes; The success of Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man and The Avengers has proven Downey’s ability to dominate the world of Hollywood blockbusters. Downey takes a step towards a more serious role than he’s had the past few years with this fall’s family drama, The Judge.
Since opening the 39th Toronto International Film Festival Thursday evening,the film hasn’t been hailed as the next best picture nominee to come out of Toronto, but that doesn’t mean it won’t score any nominations.
Both Oscar winner Robert Duvall and two-time Oscar nominee Downey, have been garnering high praise for their roles as father and son, which could lead to potential nominations for the 87th Academy Awards. Duvall has a long awards history, but Downey also has his fair share of praise. Here are »

If ever there was an argument against nominative determinism, it’s the acting career of Jon Hamm. As philandering ad executive Don Draper on Mad Men he’s brought one of the most intense and believable performances in the current TV renaissance of “mysterious, angry white dudes), a quality he’s since brought to other film and television roles. We assume he was similarly impressive when he played Winnie The Pooh in the first grade – possibly using some clever ad-speak to convince Rabbit to give him some Honey – and Judas in Godspell at age 16. Surprisingly, for the guy who’s the current toast of Hollywood, he didn’t take acting at all seriously at first. In fact, save for those two juvenile attempts at it, he’d basically abandoned acting as a viable career.
Luckily for all of us, he reconsidered after moving home to complete his college degree, »

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?
While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.
Claire Danes (Angela Chase)
After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »
There's a certain joy and sadness in revisiting films you remember enjoying as a kid. Some, because of their continued playback on cable or at your own home theater, seem to age with you so that their flaws become endearing while their wonders become treasures you hoard as if they were intended just for you. In this, films can be like old friends. Catching up with one you haven’t seen in over a decade can be a terrifying prospect. Have they aged well? Do you still share the same sense of humor? Will there be awkward silences where there were laughs before?
Much like its stock male lead, Look Who’s Talking is a flawed, sloppy, »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.
Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”
As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

Martin Odum doesn’t just go undercover in TNT’s Legends, which premiered Wednesday night – he becomes his covers, burying himself in the fabricated backstories and character quirks that come with the job.
However when Odum (played by Game of Thrones‘ Sean Bean) returns home after a months-long deep-cover assignment, a mysterious stranger tells him that what he presumes is his true identity is just an elaborate “legend” as well. Unfortunately, Odum can’t dispel that accusation since he’s beginning to unconsciously slip in and out of the many personae he’s created over the years.
But that’s »
The bad boys of law are back as Season 4 of TNT’s Franklin & Bash opens tonight at 10/9c — and TVLine has a “musical” preview of the interesting times ahead
Now, just because Infeld’s behind bars and they’re in charge of the firm, don’t expect Franklin or Bash to curb their party-throwing ways. If this Steve Porter remix of clips from Season 4 is any indication, things are only going to get wilder as the duo don kilts, wield puppets and… pole dance? Franklin even throws »

In his nearly 30 years on television, Perception star Eric McCormack has played a spaceman, a Confederate colonel, a handful of lawyers and a dog, among other characters. But the through line that led to his best-known role started quite early, on an ABC dramedy not known for its edginess.
Upon arriving in Vancouver in 1992, the first job he landed was on The Commish, “playing a bartender in a gay bar. It was a premonition of things to come. »

HBO have got a new comedy show in the works and it has just added a few more cast members to the mix; Jaimie Alexander and Bernard White will join Jack Black and Tim Robbins in the shows’ main roles. The Brink, a half-hour comedy series tipped to be released by the end of the year, will be a humorous slant on the scramble to prevent geopolitical crisis as World War III looms ever closer.
Doesn’t sound that funny to us either but there’s several reasons we’re remaining optimistic. Firstly, the script is being written by seasoned writer/producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim, the former with credits including Ally McBeal and Weeds. Secondly, on board directing is Jay Roach who makes his first foray into directing a TV series after movies such as Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Meet The Parents and The Campaign. »

The CSI beast is going strong still. CBS announced another series regular for the upcoming CSI: Cyber, which is Peter MacNicol. He was previously on CBS’ Numb3rs and legal show Ally McBeal. His role, Assistant Director Stavros Sifter will be the FBI supervisor who is also an insider that has made it his whole career. He will be playing the boss to Patricia Arquette. The series is expected to be a mid-season replacement during the mid season break next year. Peter has yet to address the subject of his new role.
I have always loved the CSI series and I love that they are taking on the cyber subject. It will certainly be a good one and perhaps it should have been done a long time ago. I suppose it is better late than never, but it does make you wonder where their minds are when they decide what shows to create? »

MacNicol will play Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, a career FBI insider and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C. Sifter quickly rose up the ranks and positioned himself in a job where he is the clearing house between FBI Cyber and all other branches of government. He is a shrewd and savvy networker; a charmer with a hint of malice. Drilling down to the core of his “Classified” status, Sifter knows what very few know behind the closed doors of the U.S. Government. The social networks and devices we use on a daily basis are the Government’s way of monitoring its citizens domestically and abroad — therefore, Sifter has the impossible task of controlling the amplification of cyber crime in an era where the collective world communicates electronically. »
