17 May 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit tonight guest stars actor Casey Cott as Lucas Hale – a member of a church group who rapes a woman and claims he did so for religious reasons.

The 1 Reason You Might Recognize Kevin on Riverdale

17 May 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There are so many reasons we love Riverdale: the soundtrack, the drama, but most importantly, the incredibly talented cast. With so many strong performances in each episode, it's hard to believe that for many, this is their big break. Aside from Cole Sprouse, who developed quite the résumé as a child actor, most of the actors behind the famous Archie Comics characters are generally unrecognizable. In fact, for many of the young stars, this is their first role. One of them is Casey Cott, who plays Betty's gay best friend, Kevin. The actor's only other credit is a guest-starring role on season 18, episode 19 of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (which airs on May 17). Even though Riverdale is his first introduction to Hollywood, he actually has a lot of experience under his belt. Aside from performing in a variety of theater productions during his time at Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, »

Why You Recognize Lucy From Once Upon a Time's Season 6 Finale

15 May 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Once Upon a Time's season six finale is filled with happy endings, but it is also the beginning of a new story entirely. In the final few moments of the episode, we learn that the newly announced season seven will feature a major flash forward with adult Henry (Andrew J. West) and his daughter, Lucy (Alison Fernandez), as the main characters. Even though it's bittersweet saying goodbye to some of our favorite characters, we can't wait to see where this new father-daughter dynamic will lead. While you might recognize West for his roles on Greek and The Walking Dead, you're probably familiar with his onscreen daughter as well. This isn't the 11-year-old's first big TV show. She had small guest-starring roles on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Orange Is the New Black. Of course, her most recent and recognizable role was on The CW's Jane the Virgin, where she »

'Law & Order' Star: Trump Team Adding to "Stigma, Shame" of Sexual Assault Survivors (Guest Column)

2 May 2017 11:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Though Sexual Assault Awareness Month has come to a close, I can't help but think about the survivors, whose stories I encountered during my role as Alex Cabot on NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. I still think about those stories. Even though it was just television, those stories often represented real people and some of the all-too real struggles they can face trying to access health services and get the care they need and deserve in the wake of a traumatic incident or sexual assault.

We still have a long way to go to properly support survivors of »

‘Law & Order: Svu’ Takes on Fox News Scandals in Latest Episode ‘The Newsroom’

27 April 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” episode that aired Wednesday night played partly as wish fulfillment, but then again, that’s one of the functions of a crime procedural: To make sure the audience knows that the bad guys will almost always get what’s coming to them, thanks to law enforcement teams that never waver in their commitment to justice.

That the real world doesn’t always work this way is a given. We often look to our entertainment to supply the storylines we wish existed; we don’t always want TV dramas that reflect the harsh, painful unpredictabilities and routine injustices that reality often provides.

And so in “Svu’s” latest ripped-from-the-headline episode, a powerful man, Harold Coyle (Christopher McDonald) went to jail for the rape of a co-worker. The 18 months he got doesn’t seem like a lot, but the wrap-up to this installment of the long-running procedural noted that the network Coyle ran »

Exclusive: Gary Cole Talks Meta Experience of ‘The Good Fight’ Tackling His Shelved ‘Law & Order: Svu’ Episode

10 March 2017 9:56 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lately, Gary Cole’s television career is a revolving game of politics.

First, the longtime actor played the hapless Vice President Bob Russell for three seasons on The West Wing. A decade after first appearing on Aaron Sorkin’s celebrated White House drama, he joined HBO’s Veep as Kent Davidson, earning his first Primetime Emmy nomination. And last year, the actor was notably enlisted to play a controversial politician on a 2016 episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit inspired by then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

That particular episode, which was ripped from the headlines surrounding Trump, was ultimately shelved by NBC after first being delayed until after the election and later pulled from the schedule when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. While that hour of TV is yet to air -- and likely won’t, despite creator Dick Wolf’s suggestion it might debut in the spring -- The Good Fight is addressing the controversy in a new »

In the middle of filming Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn's upcoming mother-daughter comedy Snatched, Christopher Meloni found out his own mom had passed away.

"We have one more shot to do and we're going to jump into a boat and zip up the river and Goldie Hawn and I start talking," he recalled of the morning he heard the tragic news. "I said 'Well, to be honest my mother passed.' She grabs me and she hugs me tight. I needed that moment." Amy, of course, responded to the news with a little bit of humor.
