Cookie Lyon may not be the undisputed queen of Empire for much longer.
The show’s producers are on the hunt for a baby-faced actress to play the recurring, potentially breakout role of Betty Barz — a “moody, outspoken” teenage rapper who’ll be introduced in the Sept. 23 Season 2 premiere (9/8c on Fox), titled “The Devils Are Here,” TVLine has learned exclusively.

After Tabu's power packed performance in Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider (adaptation of Hamlet), it is now the turn of the British actress Wendy Glenn to play the role of Hamlet's mother Gertrude in Onir's Veda, which happens to be his adaptation of the Shakespearean classic. Readers may know Wendy Glenn for her roles in American TV shows like CSI: Miami and You're Next. Talking about roping in Wendy for the film, National award filmmaker Onir added, "Wendy is a phenomenal actor and we are so happy to have her as part of the film. She immerses herself in the character, which is such a wonderful quality. She is as stunning a person as she is as an actor." Simultaneously expressing her pleasure of working on an Indian film Glenn says, "It is such a pleasure to be working with Onir, my co-actors, Bhavna and the team and on such an amazing script. »

While we all love Taraji P. Henson’s Cookie on Empire, it sounds like the character may be getting an extra bit of attention when the series returns this fall for Season 2, and that attention will be coming from Adam Rodriguez. The actor, who has previously appeared on The Night Shift, CSI: Miami, and CBS’ short-lived soap Reckless (he’s also one of the stars of this summer’s Magic Mike Xxl), has signed on for a recurring role in Empire‘s second season. And from the description of Rodriguez’s character, it seems like he’ll certainly be involved with Cookie; whether that involvement is romantic or not remains to be seen. Rodriguez will play Laz Delgado, a native New Yorker and former Emt turned smooth-talking concert promoter, who is described as having “expert hustler skills.” The big news about Laz, though: he takes a “special interest” in Cookie. »

Adam Rodriguez (The Night Shift, CSI: Miami) has joined Season 2 of Empire in a recurring role, and from the sounds of it, his character may be mixing up a cocktail that’s equal parts business and pleasure for Empire Entertainment’s matriarch.
Rodriguez will play native New Yorker and former Emt Laz Delgado, who’s described by producers as “a smooth-talking concert promoter with expert hustler skills… who takes an interest in Cookie.” (Bracing for a mouth-to-mouth resuscitation joke in 5, 4, 3, 2…)

Fox’s “Empire” has grown yet again — or at least its cast has: Adam Rodriguez is set to recur as a guest star on Season 2 of the network’s mega-smash.

How do you memorialize something that is essentially immortal? There will be a time, presumably, when humans no longer watch episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation or any of its three spinoffs (CSI: Miami; CSI: NY; and CSI: Cyber, which is still on the air) or read CSI-branded novels or comic books or play CSI board and video games or visit traveling museum exhibits like “CSI: The Experience” or suffer, while on jury duty, from the so-called CSI Effect. Just as there was a time, presumably, before any of those things existed — October 5, 2000, to be precise, one day before the CSI pilot premiered. Bill Clinton was still our president; Facebook and YouTube didn’t yet exist; and The West Wing and Will & Grace had just won the Emmys for Best Drama and Best Comedy, respectively. October 5, 2000, was also the last day before the world discovered »

Like many Good Wife fans, I watched last week’s season finale in dizzying anticipation.
As TVLine had enthusiastically teased in the days leading up to the closer, the episode promised to feature a scene between former besties Alicia and Kalinda.That scene notably would be the first time in nearly three seasons that Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi would share the screen together — a separation that both perplexed me as a person and frustrated me as a fan of the series and, more specifically, these two characters.

The mothership is being decommissioned. A few weeks ago, we reported that CBS's long-running series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was officially cancelled, but there was speculation about how (or if) it might wrap up. After 15 years of being a flagship franchise, you don't exactly just go off the air (unless you're Law & Order -- a mistake NBC made that CBS is clearly learning from). A small note in CBS's fall schedule has now revealed the series' fate: a 2-hour finale that will feature the return of some original cast members, including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. That finale, on September 27th, will then be followed the next week with the season premiere of CSI: Cyber (which CSI cast member Ted Danson will now be joining). The circle of life. So CSI will be gone, but not forgotten. The show ranked as the most-watched drama series in the world five times during its run. »

CBS is sending CSI off into the sunset in style.
The network confirmed on Wednesday that the former juggernaut will end its 15-year run with a special movie event to air on Sunday, Sept. 27. Original cast members including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger are among the CSI Mvps set to return for the swan song.

CSI was a breakout hit when it debuted in 2000, averaging 20 million viewers by the end of Season 1 and ranking among TV’s top 10 shows. In Season 5, it hit a peak audience of 26 million viewers. »
CBS is saying goodbye to the show that turned the network’s fortunes around some 15 years ago. “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” will wrap its 15-season run in September with a two-hour finale that will reunite original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.
The finale will air Sept. 27 and feature other returning cast members who have been on the forensic procedural over its run. Ted Danson, the current “CSI” star, will relocate to the latest spinoff, “CSI: Cyber,” opposite Patricia Arquette.
“It’s easy to take it for granted,” said Kelly Kahl, CBS senior exec VP. “This is one of the strongest and longest-running dramas in TV history.” He noted its importance to CBS: “This was one of the shows that reversed our fortunes and put us in the right direction.”

Avengers: Age of Ultron star Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to the Saturday Night Live stage – after all, the actress is inching up on Five-Timers Club entrance. Give the lady one more hosting gig, and she's in, along with the likes of Alec Baldwin, Drew Barrymore, and Justin Timberlake. For her fourth go at hosting the sketch comedy show, Johansson was saddled with a mostly mixed outing, one that frequently went for a timely joke (the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, the unrest in Baltimore) and the obvious gag (a send-up of »
Plenty of comedy has been mined from the fact that network television is now mostly a wasteland of procedurals in which women are gruesomely murdered, but that trend’s origin show is coming to an end. CSI first premiered in 2000, where it quickly became a smash hit for CBS, offering a science-geared alternative to the litany of doctor and lawyer shows that dominated TV at the time. It has since spawned multiple spinoffs, and while CSI: Miami and CSI: NY are long gone, it appears that the mothership show is poised to join them. The writing has been on the wall for some time as ratings have waned, and current star Ted Danson (side note: Yes, Ted Danson is the star of CSI right now) reached the end of his contract with the 15th season, which aired its finale in April. CBS just launched a new spinoff, the Patricia Arquette-fronted CSI: Cyber, »

It's hard to believe that YouTube is just 10 years old. It seems like it's been around forever, and it's difficult to recall how we ever lived without it.
Nonetheless, it was only 10 years ago this week, on April 23, 2005, that YouTube posted its first user-uploaded video. (It was a 19-second clip called "Me at the Zoo," uploaded by site co-creator Jawed Karim, showing him commenting on his own visit to the elephant exhibit at the San Diego Zoo. It's been viewed 19 million times.)
Today, YouTube seems a ubiquitous part of our lives. But whether you post your own videos or simply watch those made by others, you're adding to the growth of a platform that has forever altered the formerly passive way we used to watch television. Here are 10 ways YouTube has changed what we watch and how we watch it.
