NCIS Scoop: Jeri Ryan to Play Gibbs' 'Missing' Second Ex-Wife

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Seven of Nine is two of three.

Meaning, TVLine has learned that Jeri Ryan will fill the plum NCIS role of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ never-before-seen second ex-wife, Rebecca, who will be introduced in a January 2015 episode of the long-running CBS drama.

NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg first revealed to TVLine the plan to meet Gibbs’ missing ex last January, saying, “I can promise you that it is probably going to get touched on in Season 12.” Introducing the character, he effused, promises to be “[storyline] gold.”

To recap Gibbs’ wedded misses: He was first married to Shannon (played by Scandal‘s Darby Stanchfield), who, »

The Equalizer – The Review

25 September 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It would be easy to call the pulpy revenge thriller The Equalizer a standard action movie. It has all the trappings of a tired Hollywood genre effort: a loner with a mysterious past, a young hooker with a heart of gold that provides the catalyst for his return to action, and an army of sneering Russian gangsters for our hero to dispatch in all variety of gruesome manner. Put these elements in the hands of someone like Brett Ratner or another Hollywood hack and you’ve got the makings of a mundane, lifeless drama. But thanks to star Denzel Washington and his talented director Antoine Fuqua (who directed Washington to his Training Day Oscar), what should be tired and tenuous has a weird, electrifying life all its own. Sure, there are moments when The Equalizer overdoses on bullets and explosions and the cliché-heavy script by Richard Wenk offers one too many convenient contrivance, »

Julianna Margulies & Jimmy Fallon Play School Principals on Tonight Show (Video)

17 September 2014 5:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Julianna Margulies dropped in on The Tonight Show Tuesday to see Jimmy Fallon, and the star of The Good Wife took a bit of a left turn from her usual role as a litigator to portray a school vice-principal in a skit with Fallon. But the skit's a little more Glee than Boston Public: The pair sing their way through an assortment of awkwardly-rendered pop songs, and even fit in a dance segment at the end. (It's more than a little reminiscent of Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer's "Culp Family" during the late-1990s run of Saturday Night Live. »

With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

So who is she? Angelique is a model, exotic dancer and, er, 'adult film star'.

What do I need to know? Angelique is nicknamed Frenchy, presumably because she was raised in Paris. She's probably the star who'll get the most 'who?' comments, but if you want to know your stuff, she landed appearances on the Howard Stern Show after being on Playboy TV.

An Avicii show in Boston transformed into a "Level 2 Mass Casualty" incident Wednesday night when more than 50 people required medical treatment for illnesses. Thirty-six people were transported to Boston-area hospitals during the Swedish DJ's concert, primarily young people between the ages of 16 and 25, reports Rolling Stone. Other young people treated at the scene were released - many to their parents. The incident was declared a "Level 2 Mass Casualty," which notifies nearby hospitals "of the potential for 11-30 incoming patients and allow for them to be prepared for that influx," McKenzie Ridings, social media manager for Boston Public Health Commission, told the music magazine. »

CBS Orders Matthew Perry’s Odd Couple, NCIS: New Orleans, Kevin Williamson’s Stalker, and More to Series

9 May 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the glut of NBC news earlier today, CBS has announced a few series orders.  Briefly: In a surprise to no one, the spinoff NCIS: New Orleans will be moving forward to series.  NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles consistently rank as the most watched shows on network TV next to The Big Bang Theory. Additionally, the Matthew Perry-fronted comedy redo The Odd Couple is a go, as is the multigenerational family comedy The McCarthys from showrunner Bob Daily. Elsewhere the drama side, Kevin Williamson’s psychological thriller Stalker, the Tea Leoni-fronted Secretary of State show Madam Secretary, and Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman’s cyber-themed Scorpion are going to series.  They join the previously announced Battle Creek, from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. Still no official word on How I Met Your Dad, though a series order is expected.  That said, everyone expected Beverly Hills Cop to go forward last year too. »

Rashida Jones: 'There's more than one way to be a woman and be sexy'

14 February 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Quincy's daughter, Rashida Jones might have been just another Hollywood brat. But the Parks And Recreation star has a Harvard degree – and big plans for America's funniest women

The actor, writer and producer Rashida Jones suggested we meet at a private members' club near her home in West Hollywood, which seemed like a fine idea at the time. But, as I wait for her, I worry that there must be a dress code that I didn't know about, because every single woman but me is wearing skinny designer jeans, metallic heels, a sexy top, a full face of makeup and an enormous designer handbag, at 3pm on a sunny Saturday. After a few long minutes in which I shift self-consciously around in my floral cotton dress, Jones comes clattering towards me, barefaced and dressed, in her words, "like a mime": in flats, wide-legged cropped black trousers and a Breton top. »

'True Detective's' Michelle Monaghan: Robert Downey Jr. was her improv guru

10 February 2014 | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

For someone having an accidental career, Michelle Monaghan -- Maggie on HBO's "True Detective" -- is doing pretty well.

The 37-year-old actress grew up in a town of 700, Winthrop, Iowa, and daydreamed of becoming a journalist.

"I grew up loving current events," Monaghan tells Zap2it. "You grow up looking out when there are not a lot of other things going on in your hometown."

Monaghan lived in town, but her family had a farm and grew corn and beans. Her summer vacations were spent detasseling corn.

"I would go through rows and snap it off for $5 an hour," she says. Monaghan left Winthrop for Chicago, where she put herself through college by modeling for catalogs.

"This acting thing landed in my lap," she says. "They were looking for an actress on 'Young Americans' on The WB. Ian Somerhalder and Kate Bosworth came out of there."
