'The Flash' Casts Greg Finley as the Villainous Girder

20 August 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Greg Finley, who starred on The CW's short-lived drama series Star-Crossed, has signed on to play the nefarious Girder in the network's Arrow spin-off The Flash.

We reported earlier this month that Tony Woodward, a.k.a. Girder will be a recurring villain who debuts in the sixth episode of Season 1. Greg Finley has signed on to play Girder in Episode 6 and Episode 7, although it isn't clear if he will return later on in the season as well.

The S.T.A.R. Labs explosion in the series premiere, which gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) his super speed, also affected Tony Woodward, who now has the ability to turn his skin into living metal. He goes on a crime spree with these new powers, and it's up to The Flash to stop him.

Aside from his role as the Atrian teenager Drake on CW's Star-Crossed, Greg Finley also starred as »

13 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The upcoming Emmys Awards will pay tribute to the late TV and film icon Robin Williams. A celebration of the Emmy nominee's life and work is reportedly being planned for the live Primetime Emmys telecast, producer Don Mischer told TV Guide. "With the tragic loss of Robin, we're trying to deal with that and figure out what to do in the right, appropriate and meaningful way," Mischer said. "It's about what can we do to properly remember Robin and create perhaps an emotional moment about Robin, knowing all that he did for all of us who love entertainment and love comedy." Mischer and Williams collaborated on a number of projects, including HBO's 1982 "An Evening with Robin Williams" and the 1998 ABC special "Christopher Reeve: A Celebration of Hope." "We have done at least 30 shows with Robin through the years, going back into the 1980s," he added. "We all know what Robin »

Mrs. Brady Wants to Be on Law & Order: Svu, Florence Henderson "Obsessed" With the Show

2 August 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who knew Mrs. Brady had such a dark side? I caught up with Florence Henderson the other day and, much to my surprise, she revealed that she wants to guest star on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. As something like a serial killer or crazy grandmother type? "Yeah, wouldn't that be awesome," the television icon said at the Emmy Awards Performers Peer Group Celebration at the Montage Beverly Hills. "Or maybe I could be Mariska Hargitay's mother or grandmother." Would probably have to be grandmother since Olivia Benson's mom is dead. "I could have gotten rid of the mom—I'm the real mom," Henderson said. Oh, my. "I'm totally »

I Spent 4 Seasons Waiting for The Killing to Be Great. It Didn’t Happen.

1 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Killing returned for a fourth and final season on Netflix today with its greatest asset, its creepy-beautiful atmosphere, intact. Adapted from the superior Danish original by Veena Sud, this onetime AMC drama might feel like a classic if you projected it without sound on a large wall on the back room of a nightclub, where the show's voluptuously beautiful shots of misty mountains, rain-slicked streets, and characters traversing endless hallways could merge in the mind with a synthesized backbeat and whatever cocktails the place serves (probably something rain-themed). As is, The Killing has the same problems as always: a gravely solemn, we-are-reinventing-the-genre swagger that doesn't sync up with the stereotype-driven, sub-Special Victims Unit procedural you're actually watching; a fondness for red herrings and mistaken assumptions that make the two lead cops, Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), look like total dipsticks; pacing and emphasis problems »

Inside the Writers’ Room: Post #7: How To Rewrite and Be Rewritten, Part II

23 July 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

 

So how can you stay true to yourself as a writer, especially when one is supposed to be imitating another writer’s voice? For one thing, one can stop chasing fads or writing what one think the showrunner might want to see. Jane Espenson, who has written for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones and has also created her own Web TV show, Husbands, talks to me about how important it is to trust your own instincts and your own good taste. She is not the only one: Jenny Bicks encourages “writing what you want to write, going towards the love” and Tom Fontana goes as far as to very simply state that “being successful is being faithful to oneself.”

Tom thinks that people often look to being successful as opposed to being faithful: “And when I say faithful, I mean faithful to themselves and to the truth within them. »

TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' leads CBS Sunday as 'Rising Star' dips

21 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, July 20, 2014. After a few weeks of stability and growth, ABC's "Rising Star" dipped on Sunday, allowing "Big Brother" and CBS to claim primetime victories in all measures.  ABC still finished second overall, though "America's Funniest Home Videos" played a bigger role than "Rising Star" did.  Fox, meanwhile, was second among young viewers thanks to animation repeats. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.1 rating for Sunday night, edging out Fox's 1.0 rating in the key demographic. ABC's 0.9 key demo rating was a close third and NBC's 0.8 key demo rating wasn't far off either. Overall, CBS had much more breathing room, averaging 6.15 million viewers and a 3.9 rating/7 share for Sunday, far ahead of the 4.07 million viewers and 2.4/4 for ABC. NBC's 2.9 million viewers and 1.8/3 beat the 1.3/2 and 2.17 million viewers for Fxo. 7 p.m. - The night's biggest audience went to CBS' "60 Minutes," which averaged 7.72 million viewers to win the 7 p. »

Casting Net: Ben Whishaw replaces Colin Firth in 'Paddington'

17 July 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) will replace Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington Bear in the Weinstein Company’s Paddington, based on the popular children’s literature character. Firth departed the live-action/CGI-hybrid project in June. Producer David Heyman told the Daily Mail, which broke Thursday’s news, that Firth’s voice was “too mature” for the part; the film needed a slightly younger voice for the beloved bear who arrives in England from Peru. Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, and Peter Capaldi will also lend their voices to the film. [The Wrap]

Interview: Zach Gilford on the World in ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

15 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Zach Gilford is a familiar face to fans of the TV series “Friday Night Lights,” where he portrayed Matt Saracen. The actor grew up around Chicago in Evanston, Ill., and has risen through the ranks of acting in his new home of Los Angeles. He currently is featured in the sequel film, “The Purge: Anarchy.”

The Purge: Anarchy” takes up the premise of the first film, which presupposes a near future America in which laws are suspended for one night a year, allowing all aggressions, crimes and firearms to be practiced with abandon. Zach Gilford portrays Shane, who is part of a couple – his real-life wife Kiele Sanchez is Liz, his other half – that are accidentally thrust into the Purge night with no protection, and hooks up with a armed vigilante named Leo (Frank Grillo). The sequel ups the ante of the first film, with more social commentary and fire power. »
