‘Zero Dark Thirty’ co-star Jason Clarke speaks: I had the pleasure of speaking in person with him a few weeks back at a luncheon in New York City, and Jason was kind enough to schedule a longer talk over the phone shortly thereafter. He’s a lot of fun to just shoot the breeze with, but he also has plenty to say about the Oscar hopeful film he has out now, as well as what’s coming up next for him. Jason Clarke: Hi Joey, how are you mate? Joey Magidson: I’m doing well, how about you? Jason: Good, where are you? Joey: I’m actually back in New York… Jason: Nice! Joey: Indeed, since I saw you last at that lunch… Jason: Oh fuck, now I know who you are! Yea yea, good good good. How’s your dog? Joey: He’s doing much better. We were »

Let's be honest, what's a good drama - even a good superhero drama like Arrow - without a love triangle? Make no mistake, the show is very much about Oliver Queen's journey to become a vigilante for justice, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have personal ties. One of those ties involves the lovely Laurel Lance, an attorney with Starling City's legal aid clinic who used to date Oliver back when he was a careless playboy. That relationship ended when Oliver absconded with Laurel's sister, who later died when his family's yacht capsized during a terrible storm.
After arriving home it's clear that Oliver still loves Laurel, perhaps even more than he did when he was younger since he's had a long time to grow more mature during his 5 years on the island. But Oliver pushes Laurel away after he realizes that his new vigilante lifestyle isn't good for her. »
When asked by Empire if there will be a Taken 3, Liam Neeson answered, "I don't see it. I don't think it's going to happen. I really don't. I can't see a possible scenario where audiences wouldn't go, 'Oh, come on! She's taken again?" Fast forward two weeks and over $50 million later and Hollywood.com asks Taken 2 screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen the same question and he answered, "We didn't start talking about Taken 3 until we saw the numbers. But then we said, 'Oh, okay. I think we should do a third one.' And Fox wants us to do a third one." Since the release of the second, and truly awful, film there have been jokes online about what a third would be about. My favorite was someone saying something along the lines of, "The third one will just be a black screen with the words 'You the audience have now been Taken. »

Welcome to the third episode of The Real L Word, Season 3, a reality show about tattooed lesbians with funky haircuts living in big cities, although much of what you see may not actually be real.
Let’s talk about this for a second. Immediately after I turned in the recap of Episode two last week I received a phone call from my friend, who we shall call "Sandy." Sandy never calls me, so it must have been important.
Sandy: Hey I need to talk to you about something.
Me: What is it?
Sandy: It’s about The Real L Word.
Silly me, and I thought it was going to be an important phone call.
Sandy: Well one of my dear friends, Britenelle, hung out with Amanda for a bit during the time The Real L Word was filming. In one scene in Episode two, which »
The wait is over: The identity of the elusive “A” was revealed on Monday’s new episode of ABC Family’s addictive teen mystery-drama Pretty Little Liars. The fast-paced episode careened through a Psycho homage and a masquerade ball before — Spoiler Alert! — dropping the bombshell that variously snobby clinger Mona Vanderwall (Janel Parrish) was “A,” the cyber-bully who’d been terrorizing Aria (Lucy Hale), Spencer (Troian Bellisario), Hanna (Ashley Benson), and Emily (Shay Mitchell) since the death of their pal Allison (Sasha Pieterse) in the show’s 2010 premiere.
The reveal, of course, leads to so many questions: Why Mona? What was her motive? »

Obviously the "American Idol" contestants are going to appreciate all the advice they get from a guest mentor on any given week, but the Top 12 finalists seemed especially psyched after working with Will.i.am during the birth year theme week. The guy let them pick his new single, for goodness sake!
Hollie Cavanagh tells Zap2it that she really expected the Black Eyed Peas member to have much more of an attitude than he did. "When you meet the really huge people in the music industry, you think they're going to be, I don't know, judgmental or something," she says. "But he was so relaxed and chilled. He was just like us. He was really cool, and I felt really really comfortable."
Hollie's sentiment was echoed by fellow contestant Erika Van Pelt. "Will.he.is awesome, is what he is! No, he's great. He was really chill with us in our mentoring sessions. »
Grimm 1.09 "Of Mouse and Man" Review
How much is too much serialization when it comes to a procedural? The whole point of having a series be more episodic in nature is that it allows casual viewers to drop in without feeling overwhelmed at complex mythology, but allow things to become too routine and you risk making your entire fan base "casual fans". Having certain serial elements and character growth in a procedural, especially one with supernatural elements like Grimm, hooks in other types of viewers and can allow your series room to grow. However, those moments tend to have to be earned, not so obvious as to disrupt an episode's flow but impactful enough to actually mean something going forward.
Grimm has been walking that tricky tightrope since episode one, leaning heavier on the familiar cop elements but sprinkling in moments that hinted at something bigger than police work and perp wrangling. »
