Park City - It would be wrong to pigeonhole Jason Segel as simply a comedic actor. Whether playing the romantically scorned Nick in "Freaks and Geeks" (or Peter in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"), the psychotically romantically scorned Eric on "Undeclared," the romantic but, in a key arc, grieving Marshall on "How I Met Your Mother," Segel has always been able to infuse his clowns with a grounding of real pain or disappointment or passion. But thinking back over Segel's resume, it was hard to point to any role that indicated Segel might be a chameleon. He's always come across as too large in stature, too modern in tone to be invited to do period films or biopics or really any kind of project skewed towards the dramatic. I'd never have described Segel as limited in his acting range, but whether by his choice or Hollywood's perception of him, Segel's CV was »

A Russell T Davies TV project is always something to be excited about. From gifting us Queer as Folk to saving Doctor Who, he has given us a lot to be grateful for over the years. Hence why his various comeback series on Channel 4, E4 and online later this month are being greeted with such a sense of anticipation.
Cucumber, Banana and Tofu come 16 years after Davies shook up TV with Queer as Folk and his new shows look likely to be just as exciting, exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life with a candid sense of humour.

After playing the sexually rampant Stuart, Gillen landed a role in what many critics claim to be the "greatest »
Toronto, Canada. After a morning spent slipping and falling, for comedic effect, on the ice of a suburban hockey rink, "Man Seeking Woman" star Jay Baruchel is eager to talk about his new Fxx romantic comedy. The Powers That Be, however, are not cooperating. We're in a small Baptist church that has had its basement retrofitted into a "Man Seeking Woman" production hub and, at the moment, a high-profile guest star who I can't currently reveal is shooting in front of a green-screen in the room next door. A door is closed, but Baruchel is excited about his first regular TV series gig in nearly a decade and a stern Ad keeps peeking in to "shush" the source of loud vocalizations, ignoring that the noise is coming from the guy who's first on the call-sheet. This is not what a guy who spent the morning stumbling and bumbling on freshly »

While many may still be catching up on some of the great television from 2014, programming in 2015 is starting earlier than ever.

Musicals have been a genre rarely explored on television, and fairy tales even less so. Thus, the idea of a new show in either category is an intriguing one and a show that combines the two, as Galavant does, is an exciting prospect. With a four-week run (eight half-hour »
British actor Charlie Hunnam has been in the Hollywood spotlight since the late '90s, and it's safe to say that he just keeps getting hotter and hotter. The sexiest Charlie Hunnam pictures out there include several recent favorites - bonus points for the ridiculously hot shirtless snaps - but he's been a heartthrob for more than a decade. In the early 2000s, Charlie appeared on Undeclared and starred in Nicholas Nickleby alongside Anne Hathaway then gained even more attention with roles in Cold Mountain and Green Street Hooligans. The character of his career, though, is undeniably Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller, and he had some crazy-sexy, Gif-worthy moments on the show. Now that the series has ended, we'll be seeing more of Charlie on the big screen, but until then, let's take a look back at his very handsome Hollywood evolution, from the '90s to now. »
