Michael Rooker has been in just about everything in his 28 year career, from Eight Men Out and Mississippi Burning to Slither and The Walking Dead, plus guest roles on basically every TV show to hit the air. Next weekend you can watch him re-team with director James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy, in which he plays Yondu, the menacing leader of the Ravagers and hero Peter Quill’s sort of adoptive father. Rooker looks almost as intimidating in person as he does on screen. With his shaved head, manicured facial hair, filigree silver cross, black t-shirt, and jeans, he could easily be a member of a biker gang. But get him talking and he is like an Adhd kid on a sugar high. He is friendly and laughs frequently. I sat down with him to talk about Yondu’s arrow, the strange bodies populating the galaxy, and The Merle and Daryl Show, »

New Yorkers riding the subway have long been advised to say something if they see something — but what if that something is a massive shark infestation/flash flood combo platter? You pray Ian Ziering is in your car, natch.
Lucky for the straphangers featured in the following exclusive clip from Sharknado 2: The Second One, the 90210 alum-turned-fish fighter is on hand and ready to do battle with the toothy terrorists. But before all hell breaks lose, Ziering’s Fin tends to some painful exposition unfinished business with his brother-in-law Martin (played by co-star Mark McGrath).

After passing over a comedy pilot from Craig Robinson last spring, NBC has changed its mind and given the show a six-episode order.
"Mr. Robinson" stars "The Office" alum Robinson as a musician who gets a job teaching at a middle school, where he chafes under the school's rules. As seen on "The Office" and occasionally in his stand-up comedy, Robinson has some musical chops himself.
The pickup comes with some changes behind the scenes. Robb and Mark Cullen, coming off ABC's canceled "Back in the Game," are joining the series as executive producers and showrunners, while "Office" Ep Greg Daniels has left the project. (Another "Office" veteran, Owen Ellickson, wrote the pilot script.)
Robinson and the Cullens previously worked together on "Lucky," an FX comedy that ran for one season in 2003.
