My So-Called Life: where are they now?

24 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

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 »

Look Who's Talking (1989) and the Perils of Revisiting Childhood Faves

22 August 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hello everyone, Manuel here jumping aboard my personal DeLorean and taking a trip to 1989 to catch up with what’s still Amy Heckerling’s biggest box office success, the comedy Look Who's Talking.

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, »

Carla Gugino Will Go To The Brink For HBO

14 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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. »

TNT's Legends: Do You Spy a Hit?

13 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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 ThronesSean 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.

New Cast Members Join Jack Black & Tim Robbins In ‘The Brink’

6 August 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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. »

Numb3rs Peter MacNicol Joins CSI: Cyber

2 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

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? »

Peter MacNicol Joins ‘CSI: Cyber’ as Series Regular

1 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Peter MacNicol has joined “CSI: Cyber” as a series regular, CBS announced Friday.

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. »

E.T. goes bad in trailer for alien shocker 'Extraterrestrial'

30 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“Keep watching the skies!” warned Douglas Spencer’s reporter at the end of the 1951 science-fiction classic The Thing From Another World. More than 60 years on, that remains good advice for characters in alien-themed horror movies such as the Tribeca-screened Extraterrestrial. This third film from directors the Vicious Brothers (Grave Encounters) details a weekend getaway by five college friends which goes horribly awry when aliens invade.

Extraterrestrial stars Brittany Allen (The Rocker), Freddie Stroma (the Harry Potter franchise), Jesse Moss (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil), Anja Savcic (I Love You, Beth Cooper), Melanie Papalia (Smiley), and Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, Ally McBeal »

Emmys: Quirky Is the New Black

30 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In much the same way that dramas like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” made flawed antiheroes easy to root for, a new wave of comedy is putting the oddball front and center. Instead of Jerry Seinfeld playing the straight man to his quirky friends or Michael Bluth watching his family unravel around him, characters like Zooey Deschanel’s Jess on Fox’s “New Girl” and Lena Dunham’s Hannah on HBO’s “Girls” celebrate their eccentricities.

The quirky lead has been a part of TV since “I Love Lucy” took home an Emmy in 1952, according to John Leverence, senior veep of awards at the TV Academy. He cites “The Jack Benny Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and more recently, “Cheers” and “Frasier” as good examples of shows with off-kilter personalities at their core.

However, it’s just been in the past decade or so that »

Ellen DeGeneres announced the news for Portia with the following tweet.

So annoying when people brag on twitter & that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on “Scandal”. Oops.

Congratulations to Portia! She has worked hard for her career and she hasn’t had much work since her marriage. We are happy to see she will return to TV and beyond her Netflix return. Maybe this will be a healthy »
