Fear the Walking Dead is, quite literally, about to go viral.
Flight 462 will follow a group of passengers on a commercial airplane at the earliest moments of the outbreak, during which an infected traveler threatens everyone on board. One of the characters in the web series (aka the only survivor…?) will go on to join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead‘s second season. »
The Grinder has lined up its latest guest star, and this casting is most definitely Justified. Timothy Olyphant will be appearing in an upcoming episode of the new Fox comedy. Olyphant, best known for his work as Raylan Givens on FX’s recently wrapped drama Justified, will guest star in The Grinder‘s Thanksgiving episode, which is titled “Giving Thanks, Getting Justice.” He’ll play a fellow actor and competitive friend of Dean’s (Rob Lowe). Speaking of Lowe, he was the first to reveal Olyphant’s casting, sharing the news on Twitter earlier today and making a Justified joke of his own in the process: Really excited to work today with the latest great actor to join #TheGrinder, Timothy Olyphant. Our love for him is… Justified! — Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) September 25, 2015 In addition to his work on Justified, Olyphant’s TV credits include The Mindy Project, The Office, Damages, and Deadwood. »

Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead (Douglas Tirola)
While the last few decades or so of National Lampoon’s output has been less than stellar, their influence through their humor magazine and films such as the original Vacation and Animal House can still be felt today. For those curious about the formation of the group and their rise to ubiquitous status, a new documentary looks to provide the behind-the-scenes story. »

“I think it’s long overdue,” the Fear The Walking Dead star told me Sunday on the Emmy red carpet. “Let’s do it. We all want to do it.”
Of course, Deadwood Returns (working title or title I just made up for the purposes of this story — you decide!) would have to work around Dickens’ schedule on Fear, »

Many of you may already have noticed that AMC have released the first promo poster for their new show due out in 2016, Preacher, and – even better news – it’s been ordered to series for a ten episode run. Based on Garth Ennis’ Vertigo horror comic, fans are rabidly waiting to see how this series will turn out. It’s early days to be pulling apart a show that hasn’t even aired a trailer yet, but here’s what fans may be excited/bummed about, with the information we have to hand.
Pro: The Actors
Right now the show seems to have stocked its talent pool well. The actors currently involved in the project seem to be top drawer. Dominic Cooper fits the Jesse Custer role admirably, and, though many would prefer a dyed-in-the-wool Texan play the title role, he does look the part and »
Davis’s role on the show will certainly be an interesting one, as she is set to play an actress who portrays Cersei Lannister in a traveling theater company. In the casting call, her character is described as a “fun, charismatic rum-drinking actress in the troupe.”
While Lena Headey plays the actual Cersei Lannister on the show, last season a young version of the character was introduced through a flashback, so Davis is essentially the third actress to play the Lady of Casterly Rock.
Additionally, the site also released a report saying that actor Richard E. Grant, another new addition to the show’s cast, will be playing a “larger-than-life leader of a troupe of actors.” In the theater company, »

Welcome to the final installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the season finale, “I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano," coming up just as soon as I remind you that I'm not a big Renee Zellweger fan... "Cunnilingus and psychiatry brought us to this!" -Tony David Chase, as many of you know by now, didn't want to make another TV show. »

Game of Thrones has added another new cast member for its upcoming sixth season, but unlike other roles that have been cast for Season 6, this character will remain a mystery. Richard E. Grant has joined the HBO series’ sixth season in an unknown role.

Freddie Stroma (UnREAL) has been added the the ever-expanding cast of Game of Thrones season 6. According to Variety, the actor will reportedly portray Dickon Tarly, the brother of John Bradley’s Samwell Tarly.
Dickon is not only younger and stronger than Sam, but also his father’s rightful heir, a distinction Sam lost out on when he was forced to choose between death or joining the Night’s Watch. In fact, Lord Randyll Tarly, Sam’s father, may be popping up in season 6 as well.
The actor recently starred on Lifetime’s critically acclaimed drama series UnREAL, on which he played bachelor Adam Cromwell. His other credits include multiple Harry Potter movies, Pitch Perfect, The Inbetweeners 2 and »

No matter how much hype and anticipation that preceded it, True Detective season 2 seemed to succumb to the ol’ second album syndrome. Though it may have expanded the scope and character roster from the maiden outing, swapping a swampy, rural setting for the neon signs and dark underbelly of Los Angeles, its story simply didn’t emulate that of Rust Cohle and Marty Hart.
Questions arose thick and fast, with many fans – us included – wondering how one of television’s finest dramas had transformed into a mediocre procedural within the space of one season. And while it doesn’t necessarily answer all of those questions, Variety has posted a fascinating interview with series director Cary Fukunaga, who admitted that he “really wasn’t involved” in the sophomore season True Detective.
Listed as an executive producer on HBO’s drama, here’s what Fukunaga had to say about his involvement – or »

Idris Elba nearly plunged to his death filming Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation.” The indie drama, about an African tyrant known as “the commandant” who recruits an innocent boy into his army of youth soldiers, took Elba into the depths of Ghana’s jungles for a guerrilla-like shoot. One afternoon, as the actor waited for the next scene, he leaned against a tree overlooking a waterfall, lost his footing and fell over the ledge. Luckily, there was a narrow ridge that saved him from a 90-foot drop.
“I remember slipping and catching onto this big branch that was sticking up, and I literally was like, ‘Whoa!’ ” recalls Elba. “It was a moment where I was like, ‘This is the real deal.’ ”

"Often-times, when you make things, you get paid in applause - and even that's very rare. So to do a show where there's a yearning to see it is a great honour."
SundanceTV's Rectify is one of Us television's great unsung gems - despite winning much critical acclaim, particularly for the performance of its leading man Aden Young, the show had not secured a broadcaster in the United Kingdom - until now.
AMC UK will air the series from the start, as part of a prestigious line-up that also includes the red-hot Fear the Walking Dead and underground hit Manhattan.
"I'm glad to see it's finally going to hit the shores of the UK," says Young. "Because I think that it's something that a lot of people will be able to recognise in themselves - the journey of this family trying to find their way forward by feeling."
