Can't get enough Supernatural spoilers? Good! The stars recently appeared at Comic-Con, and between Jared Padalecki cracking jokes at the panel and Jensen Ackles confessing his love for Game of Thrones, the boys spilled some great intel about the upcoming season. Along with a table full of reporters, we caught up with Padalecki and got the scoop on what he's the most excited about in season 11, as well as why Supernatural is one of the only shows that can pull off an entire episode in an Impala. (In case you missed it, that's totally happening.) What are you excited to see coming up in season 11? Jared Padalecki: The brothers are brothers again! We have had so many years where these boys have had reasons to be apart. Even though they don't know what The Darkness is, it's pre-biblical. It predates God, Castiel, and Crowley, so they are completely out of the world. »

Sounds like Kelly Rowland is fulfilling her destiny…of guest starring in Season 2 of Empire. The R&B singer has signed on to appear in the second season of Fox’s megahit, and as E! Online first reported, she will be taking on a very interesting role, playing the mother of Lucius Lyon (Terrence Howard) in flashbacks. Rowland is the latest in a line of big-name guest stars that have signed on to appear in Empire‘s second season. Other notable actors appearing include Oscar winner Marisa Tomei (who will recur as Mimi Whiteman, a lesbian venture capitalist who gets involved with the Lyon family), CSI: Miami‘s Adam Rodriguez (who will be playing a potential love interest for Cookie), comedian Chris Rock, R&B singer Alicia Keys, and rock (and Hunger Games) star Lenny Kravitz.

We’re not sure if Empire‘s Lucious Lyon is a child of destiny — but his mother most certainly is.
TVLine has confirmed that sometimes Destiny’s Child diva and erstwhile X Factor judge Kelly Rowland will guest-star as the mother of Terrence Howard’s hard-charging label exec — in flashback, of course. E! Online first reported the news.

Vixen Varisty is reporting that Megalyn Echikunwoke (The 4400, CSI: Miami) is set to voice the title character of Mari MacCabe in CW Seed’s upcoming animated series Vixen, which takes place the same universe as The CW’s other DC superhero shows Arrow and The Flash.
Earlier this week, it was announced that fans attending Sdcc will get a first look sneak peek at the series, which will also see Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/Arrow), Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon) reprising their roles from the live-action series.
Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe’s parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family’s Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals-anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. »

As a concept, Vixen has been floating around for a while. The basic idea is that of an animated spin-off from The CW’s Arrow and The Flash universe, with a female hero – the eponymous Vixen – in centre stage.
Recently, Megalyn Echikunwoke has appeared in both the Damien TV series and The Following. Previously, she played the on-the-nose-ly named ‘Pretty Reporter’ in A Good Day To Die Hard and recurred in CSI: Miami.
Vixen’s secret identity is Mari McCabe, who ‘inherits a magical totem that bestows upon her the ability to access the inherent attributes of animals, »
I first became aware of cinematographer Darren Genet when I encountered his work on All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, a surprisingly lyrical and beautiful horror film that had more in common with the work of Terrence Malick and ’70s-era Peter Bogdanovich than with other teen slasher films. Awestruck by Genet’s visual originality and technical precision, I continued to follow his work as he ventured into television (CSI: Miami) and continued to evolve as a feature cinematographer on films like Jada Pinkett Smith’s criminally underrated directorial debut, The Human Contract. That film exhibits all of Genet’s strengths: a bold and […] »

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.

She immerses herself in the character, which is such a wonderful quality. She is as stunning a person as she is as an actor."

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. »
