The FX period drama The Americans is back for Season 2, as it follows the complex marriage of two Kgb spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C., shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell), whose 14-year-old daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) and 11-year-old son Henry (Keidrich Sellati) know nothing about their parents’ true identity, is becoming more genuine, as the escalation of the Cold War makes everything more dangerous. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Keri Russell talked about the endless complications for characters living in a spy world, how Season 2 gets more layered and rich, that Elizabeth is really knocked off of her center after the events of last season, where things are at now between Elizabeth and Phillip, how much she enjoys the bad-ass fight scenes, how happy she was to get Margo Martindale back »

The notion of Keri Russell, still fixed in the minds of so many as the namesake star of small screen college drama “Felicity,” playing a deep-cover Russian operative in a period piece spy drama like “The Americans” always seemed like something of a stretch. But, opposite costar Matthew Rhys, Russell reliably helps anchor FX’s chess-game serial, returning this month for its second season. Created by Joe Weisberg, an ex-cia agent of four years and the brother of Slate Group editor-in-chief Jacob Weisberg, “The Americans” is a meat-and-potatoes show whose classic conflict set-up and intriguing explorations of moored (and unmoored) personal identity amidst chronic, ingrained deceit win out over some occasionally soapier instincts. As such, it seems [ Read More ]
We’ve all heard of on-set rituals, but this one may take the cake. We allllll remember when Keri Russell infamously chopped her curly locks into close-cropped pixie style while on the classic ’90s series, Felicity. It’s been more than a decade, but the hair ‘do has followed her even onto the set of The Americans!
Apparently it’s become the tradition for every cast and crew member to put it on and pose for a picture. The snaps are all hung on an improvised “Wall Of Shame,” decorated with the best and the worst of the wig. So, who wore it best? And more importantly, who wore it worst? Noah Emmerich thinks he has a shot at being the worst, but then again, so does Holly Taylor, whose head was pretty much swallowed by the wig.

io9 got a copy of what they believe is a draft of the first episode of Gotham. Lets hope there are many more drafts before they film a script. I’m reminded of that terrible Birds of Prey where people kept explaining things.

Series Co-Star Matthew Rhys talks Season Two of FX’s "The Americans." Walking the tightrope of promoting a spy series built on mystery without giving away choice plot requires delicate handling. Up to the task is Welsh actor Matthew Rhys; arguably the nicest Russian spy you’ll ever see on TV via FX drama The Americans; debuting its sophomore season 10 p.m. Est Wednesday night. Rhys stars opposite Keri Russell, still known as Felicity for those longtime torchbearers of Jj Abrams’ Gen Y WB series, as Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, Russian spies sent to the United States to pose as an American couple living in suburban Washington, D.C. in 1981. The show catches up with them some ten years into their covert assignment with children ages 13 and 10. »

Scott Speedman's new show Open is all about relationships, so it seemed only fitting that he dished about his own dating history during an appearance on Chelsea Lately. Chelsea Handler began by telling the 38-year-old Canadian that she used to wait tables at a restaurant in the Palisades and she would see him with his Felicity co-star Keri Russell. "That's when I was dating Keri, yeah. She lived out there," the actor recalled. "Oh yeah, I didn't know you guys dated," Handler said. "Why did you think we were at breakfast every morning?" Speedman asked. "Well listen, I said, 'oh he used to come here with Keri, they dated,'" Handler added. »

"We had such great chemistry together.""We used to fart together," interrupted Amy Jo. "If you look at the opening of the original series, when we all pile up and we »

Nadezhda is a stranger in a strange land; recruited young, she was extensively trained by the Kgb and then partnered with a slightly older Mischa. Both are brought to America in the 1970s where they pretend to be a happily married couple running their own travel agency. The reality is that they are embedded espionage agents working near the nation’s capital, endangering our peace and prosperity.
Sleeper agents are nothing new to spy fiction or reality but what FX’s The Americans has done is humanize them so you’re actually rooting for the bad guys. By making it as much about the marriage as it is about spy craft, the show makers for arresting viewing. The Americans: The Complete First Season is now out on Blu-ray from 210th Century Home Entertainment and if you missed this last winter, now is a good time to check it out »

Every week, "Arrow" outdoes itself in terms of epic fight sequences, game-changing reveals and intense character confrontations, but Wednesday (Feb. 5) night's episode, "Heir to the Demon," was in a class all on its own.
With the introduction of Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) -- Ra's al Ghul's daughter -- hunting down Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) to bring her back to the League of Assassins, the stakes would have been high enough. But the show added another, more emotional level to Nyssa's journey: She was Sara's ex and wanted to win her heart again.
Of course, Nyssa ended up releasing Sara from her duty to the League when it became clear Sara would rather die than leave her family again. But watching Nyssa deal with the pain of that revelation was what made her one of the series' best villains so far -- a fact with which executive producer Andrew Kreisberg wholeheartedly agrees. »
It's like Keri Russell is giving us a preview of what might have happened if Felicity took a dark turn during her college days. Something about the peeping black bra and boring white undershirt feels like the uniform of a girl who works among other girls...in a house run by a madame...circa 1920? We know it's blasphemy to talk about our favorite former co-ed like that, but let's remember that she's now TV's most famous Russian spy, so the innocent whispering 20-something jig is up. The thing is, we're totally in love with this side slit skirt. The thick, black skirt is as classy is it comes, the high cut flatters her tiny waist and that ruffle is just enough flair to make it a real statement »
It’s time for Roy to show Oliver what he can do. Bronze Tiger returns to wreak havoc. And Laurel can’t get the monkey off her back.
I loved this week’s episode of Arrow. Even if some of the plot points were questionable, this was the sort of episode that makes this show so damned addicting. Full of high drama and unexpected twists and “Oh sh**!” moments. It totally wipes away the lingering stench of “Shrapnel.”
We kick off with a prison break that, sadly, has nothing to do with hottie Wentworth Miller. Some fool attempted to rob a precinct across the street from a police station. Now, this isn’t a complaint, really, but one would hope that one of the officers present would take that oddly gigantic screw up and add it to the unnerving calm of the prisoner and the fact that the guy is »

"Arrow" has an anger management problem, and his name is Roy Harper.
The mirakuru-laden Roy starts his hero training in "Tremors" and almost succeeds at it. He helps to save the day anyway, which is totally a ticket straight to Team Arrow (as Felicity sometimes calls it).
The episode also features a great deal of drinking (by Laurel), some political deal-making (with Moira and Walter), slashing (by the Bronze Tiger) and comic-book setups (of the Suicide Squad). Oh, and a little birdie known as the Black Canary may just be back in town too.
Safe to say that "Tremors" is a big episode.
Crime and release from punishment
Toward the beginning of the episode, the Bronze Tiger gets sprung from jail. His rescuer is a middle-aged man named Milo Armitrage who wants the Tiger to procure a certain item. We don't get to find out what that is right away, »
Our weekly round up of the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Batman vs. Superman, Justice League, Arrow, The Flash, Constantine, Son of Batman, Superman: Flyby, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel's Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (and 3), X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four and more....
Well, Batman vs. Superman might have been pushed back ten months to May 2016, but if talk is to be believed production is still set to get underway as planned in February (as opposed to the rumoured May start date), with a report late last night suggesting Ben Affleck has been forced to pull out of directing Fox's TV pilot The Middle Man as the "main players" on the Man of Steel sequel have been called up to start work right away. Of course, while we wait for official confirmation, »

The first authorised Mother Teresa biopic I Thirst has been announced.
"Keir's presentation and his Oscar-nominated script of Hotel Rwanda and his sensitive script for Chavez made him the perfect choice," said Krantz in a statement.
"I Thirst is the first and only authorised film about the life of Mother Teresa on the big screen. We couldn't be more excited for this movie about a woman who stood for total commitment, faith, charity and love."
Mother Teresa - who has been set on the path to sainthood but also remains a controversial figure - died in 1997 at the age of 87. »
The story will focus on Mother Teresa’s work in Calcutta during the 1950s when she founded the Missionaries of Charity after hearing a call from the Lord to begin ministering to the poorest of India’s poor. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and by the time of her death in 1997, the order had grown to more than 4,000 sisters running orphanages, hospices and charity centers.
