Bad news for McGarrett…Capt. Lou Grover is here to stay.
In the role, McBride’s character, who is based on a character of the same name from the original Hawaii Five-0 series, often finds himself at odds with Alex O’Loughlin’s Steve McGarrett. Their dynamic, says executive producer Peter Lenkov, in part led to the decision to have McBride set up shop on the island. “After his first guest spot, »

This show Helix is looking really, really promising. SciFiMafia.com attended a set tour and panel Q&A session last week in Montreal – more about that in the days to come – and this show could fill a real void in the science-fiction thriller arena. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) wasn’t at the panel session, but he did record this outline of the show which was released to attendees:

Leal will appear in multiple Season 3 episodes as Zuri Ellis, the healthcare pro who’s spent nearly two months helping Hank with his busted ankle. She’s described as “smart, beautiful and mysterious” — no wonder he’ll have trouble parting ways with her once his therapy is complete.

According to TV Line, the veteran actor (My Name is Earl, Boston Public, The Mob Doctor) will portray Dale Crowe Jr. on the FX drama, the patriarch of a Florida crime family that causes serious problems for Raylan and company this winter.
Look for Dale to be an ex-convict who runs a gator farm and who is related to Boyd's long-time dim-witted pal Dewey.
Earlier this month, Jere Burns was upgraded to series regular, meaning we'll be seeing a lot more of his slick, shady and hilarious Wynn Duffy.
Justified will return with new episodes in early 2014. »

Rapaport will play Dale Crowe, Jr., the sexy and charismatic patriarch of a white-trash Florida crime family. Dale’s an ex-convict who owns a gator farm; he is smart, savvy and ruthless, all in the name of family.
The Crowes will likely draw comparisons to Season 2′s Bennett clan, led by matriarch Mags (played, coincidentally, by Rapaport’s »

A horror movie has limitless possibilities: to scare, to disgust, to startle, to amaze, and even to get you laid. The horror genre has long been a staple of the classic movie date night, precisely because it gives you ample time to cuddle up to your startled date, as they are frightened right into your arms. They feel safe with you, and obviously, human contact is a good thing. Also, if you’ve seen the movies a few time, you’ll be ready for the crazy bits, and will look all the more brave for it.
But how scary is too scary, and what kind of movie should you choose? Do you go classic with Jaws or John Carpenter’s The Thing, or do you go new newer with Paranormal Activity or Insidious? Whatever you do, don’t choose Saw. I’d also stray away from American Psycho, since I »

In 1978, Mork & Mindy made Robin Williams the hottest thing on TV. In 1989, Good Morning, Vietnam made him the hottest thing in movies. Now that it's (practically) fall 2013, he's returning to the small screen in The Crazy Ones, a new CBS sitcom from Ally McBeal and Boston Public producer David E. Kelly. Where that will place the 62-year-old often-still-frenetic comedian - who proudly wears his battle scars, including those he earned thanks to problems with the bottle - on the temperature gauge remains to be seen. For his own part, "The idea of having a steady job is appealing," Williams tells Parade for this weekend's issue. »

Psych has plans to make season 8 great and that means adding great guest stars, in addition to continuing the relationships on the series that we already love. The latest stars to confirm their visits to the USA network’s longest-running original series are Loretta Devine and Peggy Lipton. Isn’t that divine?
The divine Devine has a great gig on Lifetime’s The Client List, but when she visits Psych for the next all new season, she will “foxy” lady, Melba Birdson. Birdson is a real songbird and she’ll pop up in episode 5 of season 8. She’s a former back-up singer for a 1960s performer, Myles Valour Jr. When Lassie, acted by Timothy Omundson connects with Birdson, its to examine an angel on an old cold case from 1967. Birdson is still hard at work singing, too.

For about 8 years, Berman brought to life Lulu Spencer for General Hospital, but ER and Boston Public are also on her resume. Lulu, the Port Charles-born blonde, was once cryogenically frozen in one of the soap opera’s crazier story lines. Pretty nifty, no?
Just the opposite can be expected when she comes to the Two and a Half Men set. Berman is going to heat things up instead. TVLine has confirmed that the actress will be a “micro guest” the May 2 episode. Her character is a pretty girl in a bar who with catch Alan’s fancy. Good luck with that, Alan! I know you’ll find some way to screw up your chances. But don’t worry. »

It’s always interesting to track the evolution of various Hollywood talents from their earliest days into the whatever they become, but Freaks and Geeks has become a singular starting point for a remarkably high percentage of actors, actresses and filmmakers who now hold the keys to the kingdom, so to speak. Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, Paul Feig, Jason Segel, James Franco, Linda Cardellini, Jake Kasdan and now John Francis Daley have emerged from the show’s ratings-deficient genius to become stars and creators in their own right. Daley spent much of the past decade growing up in front of the camera – quite literally – on shows such as Boston Public, Kitchen Confidential and Bones. But he was simultaneously developing skills behind the camera, first writing...

On Tuesday's "Watch What Happens Live," Sarah Silverman was subjected to host Andy Cohen playing a clip of a teenage Silverman singing "Bye Bye Mama" on "Community Auditions," a Boston public access show.
Silverman, who stars in the recently launched Jash network alongside Tim & Eric, Reggie Watts and Michael Cera, seemed hardly fazed by the video. "You’re supposed to cringe when you see old stuff," she said. "Otherwise, you haven’t changed."
In 2008, Silverman appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" where her then-boyfriend Kimmel teased her by playing the same clip.
Check out the video below to see the full video from Silverman's youth.

As of late, McBride has stepped into the shoes of Detective Don Owen on CBS' "Golden Boy," and while he told HuffPost that "it is what it is, another TV show" there's a glimmer of excitement beneath his tough and experienced exterior.
It's a cop drama. It's a difference in genre, so that's pretty much the only difference for me.
Do you have a lot of action scenes?
Yeah, a lot of running and jumping. »
