While most of the industry is ramping up for awards season campaigns, casting director Carmen Aiello is starting his own campaign – against auditioning. The Chicago transplant is trying to bring back the human element to casting. Aiello has worked in TV (“CSI: Miami, “Scare Tactics”) and film (“Excision,” “The Employer”) casting, as well as spending time at an agency and as a junior manager, giving him an understanding of the casting process from all sides. “If you have a name you don’t have to audition, you just have to meet with them, but if you don’t have a name and you don’t have credits you have to audition in order to validate your career. In order to validate your talent.” Aiello says the process of bringing in hundreds of actors to “see if they can act in a cold room” with people staring at them was excruciating. »
Cookie Lyon’s heart may forever be caught up in a love-hate situation with her ex-husband Lucious — but that doesn’t mean the Empire matriarch’s eyes can’t detect extreme hotness when it walks into her office.
In the following exclusive photos from the show’s Oct. 21 installment (9/8c on Fox), Adam Rodriguez‘s Laz Delgado, “a smooth-talking concert promoter with expert hustler skills… who takes an interest in Cookie,” makes his first appearance. But is Taraji P. Henson’s alter ego focusing on what Rodriguez’s recurring character can do for the artists of the fledgling Lyon Dynasty »
The original CSI has now ended while CSI: NY and CSI: Miami were both cancelled years ago. Now, just one CSI program in the franchise remains. Will CSI: Cyber run for many years like it's predecessors or, will it be cancelled instead? Will it see a third season? Stay tuned.
CSI: Cyber revolves around the work of the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI. It's a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. This crime drama stars Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek, Hayley Kiyoko, Charley Koontz, Shad Moss, and Ted Danson.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, »
You might have noticed over the past 24 hours that people on Facebook have had some pretty long, weird and intense stuff in their statuses. No, we're not talking about your Aunt Pearl's 1,000 word rant about how the CSI: Miami was better than the original CSI. (That's asking for a smack down, Pearl!) We're talking about those statuses that claim Facebook will start charging people to keep their info and content private or how the site is basically going to start climbing in your windows, snatching your info up. It probably looks a little bit like this: By this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this »
Earlier this week, IndieWire's Sam Adams interviewed me, Mo Ryan, and Tim Goodman about the increasingly strange and outdated practice of reviewing new shows based just on the pilot episode. At one point, Sam asked what was the wrongest I ever was about a show's quality based on the pilot episode. I didn't have a great answer for that one, since I have a pretty good Spidey sense about when pilots aren't to be trusted (case in point: "Studio 60"), but I did think of an answer to a related question: What show was I most wrong in predicting its commercial success based on the pilot? The answer to that one's easy, and timely, because the show in question is airing a series finale special Sunday night at 9: "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." It's not that I was predicting its outright failure or anything. I actually found the pilot interesting »

Yet a swimming pool splash-about with Kyle MacLachlan in Robocop director Paul Verhoeven's 1995 skin flick Showgirls - the Us's first and only big-budget Nc-17 - unfortunately torpedoed her career before it began.
But as Showgirls celebrates its 20th anniversary this week, having been reappraised and reborn as a midnight movie regular, a musical masterpiece (tagline: "Singing. Dancing. Tits") and a classic exploitation film of our time (not our words, but Jim Jarmusch's), we look at what happened to the actress best known as Nomi Malone.

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. »
