The 1999 movie, Cruel Intentions, would not have been as memorable without a young Reese Witherspoon, who was "begged" to play the virtuous character of Annette Hargrove, according to screenwriter/director Roger Kumble.

And I liked this actor Vinessa Shaw. And they were both great. But this was early Katie, and I thought [...] »

Dawson Leery, welcome back to an hour-long drama. We've missed you. James Van Der Beek has joined CBS' new show CSI: Cyber as a series regular, E! News has confirmed. After the Dawson's Creek alum's (extremely) short-lived CBS half-hour comedy Friends With Better Lives and his super meta stint playing himself on ABC's comedy Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, he's going back to his roots for the new spinoff series, and we seriously couldn't be happier. While we loved laughing along with him (and sometimes at him) on comedies, there's nothing better than a dramatic Van Der Beek. Are we right, or are we right? Yeah, we know we're right. Van Der Beek will »

Van Der Beek will portray FBI Agent, war on terror vet and battlefield forensics expert Elijah Mundo, who teams with Special Agent Avery Ryan (Arquette) in the ongoing battle against cyber crimes, both foreign and domestic. Arquette appeared as the character in the "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" episode "Kitty", which acted as the backdoor pilot for the upcoming spinoff. "CSI: Cyber" will premiere during the 2014-2015 season. "We are excited to welcome an actor of James Ver Der Beek’s caliber to 'CSI: Cyber.' Over his career, he has demonstrated a tremendous range of talent that makes him a perfect addition to our gifted cast, »

'Orange Is the New Black' almost had a 'Dawson's Creek' star behind bars.
The Netflix show's creator Jenji Kohan revealed that Katie Holmes was in mind to play the lead character Piper Chapman, according to E! News. "I'm a big fan of hers. I met with her originally for Piper, I believe," Kohan confessed.

The part ultimately went to Taylor Schilling as Holmes "had other things going on," and at the time, "no one knew the show would be what it was."
But don't discount Holmes entirely from the series. Kohan added that she's not opposed to writing the 35-year-old actress in as a guest star in season 3. "She could be friends with Lorna (Yael Stone) or like Lorna's Boston sister," she said.

Katie Holmes passed up a great offer!"Orange is the New Black" creator Jenji Kohan recently chatted with E!, where she revealed that the "Dawson's Creek" star was almost given the leading role in the prison series as Piper Chapman. "I'm a big fan of hers," Kohan told the site at the DGA in West Hollywood. "You know, I met with her." Unfortunately for Holmes, she had other commitments and did not sign on with the hit Netflix series. The role went to the now-Emmy nominated Taylor Schilling -- a casting choice that we think was the perfect fit for the show. "She had other things to do," Kohan revealed. "And also in the beginning, no one knew what this was."Taylor also said at the event that she's a big fan of Katie, and would love to have her guest star on the series sometime.

In an interview with E! News at a Directors Guild Association event in honor of the show Monday, "Orange" creator Jenji Kohan revealed that she met with the former "Dawson's Creek" star about the project when it was in its infancy, but the collaboration just wasn't meant to be.
"I'm a big fan of hers," Kohan told E! " ... [But] she had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no one knew what this was."
The role eventually went to Taylor Schilling, who scored an Emmy nomination for the first season of the Netflix series. And while Schilling is no doubt grateful that Holmes didn't take the part instead, the actress said she'd be open to Holmes guest-starring on the program. »

Imagine Katie Holmes in prison. Now, picture her getting down and very naughty with Laura Prepon. Well, all of that could have actually happened!

It's Comic-Con Sunday. Woo! On Saturday, I live-blogged Wbtv's Night of DC Entertainment, "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries." Sunday is TV Day in Hall H and I'll be live-blogging panels for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Strain." But first? Kevin Williamson and Kevin Bacon return to see if people are actually interested in what's in store for Season 3 of "The Following"... Follow along... [See what I did there?] 11:13 a.m. The line to get into Hall H is, at the most, a couple hundred people and I'm guessing a couple thousand "Supernatural" fans departed. 11:15 a.m. Off we go!

Sarah chats to Fangirl and Eleanor & Park author Rainbow Rowell about geekdom, romance, Ya, and her new novel, Landline...
Rainbow Rowell writes love stories. Wait, yes, this is a geeky site, but just stay where you are. Rainbow Rowell writes love stories, and they’re amazing – and geeky. Her first novel, Attachments, is about an It guy in the 90s who accidentally falls in love with a woman whose emails he’s paid to read. Eleanor And Park, her acclaimed second novel, is rammed with references to 80s pop culture, as her characters fall in love through their shared appreciation of music and comics. And Fangirl, well, as the title suggests, Fangirl is about fan culture, and a fanfiction writer learning to turn her online emotions into real life ones.
Basically, Rainbow Rowell writes characters you’re going to identify with. I gulped down all of her novels to date in a single serving, »
Where Marvel has been running rings around DC with its cinematic superhero universe, DC in turn is having a bit moment on the small screen. The CW's "Arrow" has had two very strong seasons featuring not only Stephen Amell as Green Arrow, but lots of other major and minor DC characters like Black Canary, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Deathstroke. And this fall, we'll have new DC-inspired shows on NBC (the supernatural saga "Constantine"), Fox (the Batman prequel "Gotham") and again on the CW, with "The Flash," spinning off from "Arrow" and developed by the "Arrow" creative team of Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with DC executive and longtime "Flash" comic writer Geoff Johns. At press tour, Johns called "The Flash" "probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever, as deep as we're going to go, and as many characters as we're using." The pilot episode — featuring Grant Gustin as »

Michael Pitt is the rare actor who, after 15 years in the business (including a stint on Dawson's Creek), remains idiosyncratic and whole. Clocking most of his time with independent filmmakers and esteemed names like Gus Van Sant, Michael Haneke, and Bernardo Bertolucci, Pitt remains a stranger to the throes of studio movies — Murder by Numbers and The Village being rare exceptions. He has never been forced to fit a star mold. His collaborators wouldn't have it any other way. One hundred percent undistilled Pitt ranges from brooding intensity to lunacy of every color. He does what he does, and he does it well. The maturation of television worked in his favor; Boardwalk Empire and NBC's Hannibal have Hollywood sheen and artistic souls. One might describe Pitt the same way.In I Origins, Pitt skews closer to "leading man" territory than ever before. His character, Ian Gray, is a dapper »

"Stalker" creator Kevin Williamson walked into a room full of hostile critics at the TCA 2014 summer press tour, but that's when you get when your pilot opens with a random woman getting doused with gasoline and set on fire in her own car by a stalker. Williamson's attempts to deflect the logical questions provoked by such ugly exploitation ranged from humor to self-importance to flat out frustration. His stars, Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott, sat on either side and remained largely silent throughout the panel (save for a few direct, and totally generic, questions that came their way). There's no doubt a good deal of the reaction was driven by Williamson's recent work fetishizing murder sprees on a weekly basis for Fox's "The Following," although he doesn't see much similarity himself. "I'm really curious to see what people do when they compare the two shows," Williamson allowed. "To me it's apples and oranges. »

Such a sweet soul! Michael Pitt gushed about his former Dawson's Creek costar Michelle Williams in a Q&A published Thursday, July 10, by Elle. "When I met Michelle Williams, I flew down there and she took me under her wing," Pitt recalled of the show's Wilmington, North Carolina set. "I was, like, living a double life. I was living in the projects in Fort Greene [Brooklyn] on my own since I was 15. I lived in this place that was kind of Murder Avenue. You were happy [...] »

There's currently no intel on how long he'll last. However, if he's this bad, he'll probably get ousted pretty swiftly.
