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! Our panel: Sam Underwood, Marcos Siega, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Williamson, Jennifer Johnson, Shawn Ashmore and Jessica Stroup. 11:18 a.m. They shot two endings last season, at least allegedly. With teases like this, I never know who's joking and which "special" endings are real. It begins as last season did with Kevin Bacon »

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 [...] »
According to a recent report from TV Line, the new Criminal Minds season 10 peeps have added actor Kerr Smith (left) to their payroll to play a vicious, limb cutting criminal, named Frank Cowles. There's currently no intel on how long he'll last. However, if he's this bad, he'll probably get ousted pretty swiftly. Frank Cowles is described as being "a creepy everyday man that turns out to be an acromotophile," which a person that collects limbs. Kerr Smith's acting credits include roles in Dawson's Creek, The Fosters, a stint on NCIS and a series regular role on Life Unexpected. As previously reported, season 10 is set to debut on Wednesday night, October 1st at 8pm central time on CBS. »
Katie Holmes is showing off her sexy side!The actress poses topless on the cover of the August issue of Glamour. Striking a seductive pose while wearing belted denim pants, the 35-year-old beauty tells the magazine, "I have a tightly edited closet. I like what I like. And I repeat a lot. But I'm always comfortable in jeans -- I feel like I can really do anything when I'm in them." "The Giver" star also opens up about dating after her split from Tom Cruise two years ago. "I am really focused on motherhood and work right now," she reveals. "Motherhood is the greatest gift. When I became a mother, my life completely changed."So, what's been the biggest change? "I've seen Frozen a lot," she says of watching the animated Disney musical. "But the biggest change? I think you don't know -- I didn't know how much love I had in me. »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Stalker" (CBS) The Pitch: "'CSI' is still steady, but too often the victims are men and that's scaring off fans of 'Criminal Minds.' We need something with more women in peril." "Yahtzee!" Quick Response: There isn't a thing I can say here that would make a lick of difference to you. If you like "Criminal Minds," you'll probably like this. Shrug. Similarly if you get off on the exploitative violence of "The Following" -- possibly even more exploitative in its parent-torturing second season than in its literarily pretentious first -- you'll probably get off on "Stalker" as well. Me, I found "Stalker" excruciatingly and offensively glib. Here, Williamson is dangerously-close-to-literally cutting and pasting scenes and twists from his slasher and horror movies -- cheap fake-out shock-scares, threatening phone calls and parking lot terrorizing paranoia are his jam -- but here they've been repurposed in a show that likes »

Jack McPhee has gone gray!It's been a while since we've seen Kerr Smith, who played Michelle Williams' gay Bff on "Dawson's Creek," but he's back on TV this summer with a guest starring role on ABC Family's "The Fosters."The actor, now 42, made his first appearance in the Season Two opener as the biological father of Maia Mitchell's character, Callie.But seeing him play the salt-and-pepper haired father of a 16-year-old definitely comes as a surprise to fans of the WB drama -- and Kerr himself!"As an actor it's a very strange adjustment to start playing the father," he said in a recent interview with Zap2It. "I was used to playing a kid my whole life and then all of a sudden, it's like, boom. I guess when I let my hair go grey things changed."Bailee Madison also joins the show this season as Smith's other daughter, »

The sun set on Californication last night, after seven years of drug orgies and actual orgies. And finally, David Duchovny's character – the Bukowskian author Hank Moody, who took part in hilarious Dionysian fetes that would've made even Fellini wince – has gotten the bittersweet ending he deserved.
From his evolution as a well-intentioned screw-up, unwittingly entwined in an affair with a 16-year-old as he tried to win over his baby-mama Karen in Season One, to (spoiler) navigating a relationship with »
Before he was Dawson, James Van Der Beek was alien food!This week, the Internet did what it does best and uncovered a gem from the actor's past -- showing him on the extremely short-lived Tgif sitcom "Aliens In the Family" back in 1996. The show revolved around a mixed human/extraterrestrial family living in the suburbs, and this episode found James taking one of the daughters out on a date.Let's just say it didn't go well, check out the clip above.The show only lasted two weeks on ABC's popular Friday night lineup and it's not hard to see why.After Variety posted the clip earlier today, Van Der Beek took to Facebook to talk about the embarrassing role ... and revealed how it cost him a pretty sweet gig!"Busted! One of my very early TV gigs unearthed, somehow," he wrote. "This was a show that was So good »

Remember When... is a weekly feature every (#Throwback)Thursday where we look back on a moment that changed the world of pop culture forever. Come for the nostalgia, stay for the reminder that you are getting So Old. What Happened: The date was December 20, 1996.

Scream blew people's minds, and both horror aficionados and casual movie-goers finally got a scary flick that had characters that were »

Given his history with The Flash, Andrew [Kreisberg], Geoff [Johns] and I could only think of one person we wanted to play Barry's father and that was John Wesley Shipp," Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti said in a statement.
