With Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, and all Morgan Freeman already onboard, the cast of the highly anticipated Ted 2 has grown by one, with director Seth McFarlane tweeting that Liam Neeson had just filmed scenes for the return of the foul mouthed teddy bear, the pair re-teaming after A Million Ways to Die in The West. Now this could just be a cameo, which the actor has a real knock for, with t.v.'s Life is Short, Anchormn 2, and the upcoming Entourage movie under his belt. There is no word on what the role is, but considering McFarlane's love of decades old pop culture references, could he be playing himself, and we see John Bennett put Flash Gordon to one side, and reveal his love for Krull? »

The student has become the teacher.
Once best known for his role as the "I see dead people" child in M. Night Shyamalan's 1999 film The Sixth Sense, Haley Joel Osment is returning to the big screen ...awkwardly. In Sex Ed, the 26-year-old plays a guy named Eddie who lands his first teaching gig at an inner-city middle school. He soon finds that his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education, and, though he isn't really equipped to teach them, he's takes on the challenge.

CBS’ new drama Madam Secretary can best be described as the D.C. follow-up to The Good Wife. They both feature spectacular-looking actresses in their late 40s playing women essaying roles often depicted on television by men, with a supportive husband (though in this case, for now anyway, hubby keeps it in his pants) and a winsome daughter and bright, could-be-trouble son. And both feature marvelous ensemble casts filled with TV veterans and newbies with their eyes on stardom.
After an opening that nearly tricks you into thinking you’re dipping into the new season of Homeland, Madam Secretary drops us in Syria, »

Landing the role of Jeremy in the “Think Like a Man” movies came with some perks and pitfalls for Jerry Ferrara. The actor, who's best known for his role as Turtle in the HBO series “Entourage,” told TheWrap that playing Gabrielle Union‘s underachieving husband Jeremy in “Think Like a Man Too” was no easy task. “It was very stressful having to make people believe I could get Gabrielle Union, 'cause Gabrielle is very, very beautiful and talented,” Ferrara said of the film, which was released on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday. ”So, I also thought it would be a nice little feather in. »

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.
If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.
Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.
Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

As the producer of "In Treatment," "Boardwalk Empire" and "Entourage," Mark Wahlberg knows what it takes to be successful on the small screen. And now, he's taking one of his own movies and developing it for a brand new series. His forgotten about 2007 action thriller "Shooter," directed by Antoine Fuqua, is now being turned into an episodic drama for TNT. No word yet on the plot details, but we presume they won't be too far off from the movie about a U.S. Marine Scout sniper who gets framed up for murder and has to go on the run. [Deadline] The unlikely trio of James van der Beek, Bret Easton Ellis and Roger Avary are back together. They upended the "Dawson's Creek" star's image with the 2002 effort "The Rules Of Attraction," and now they're headed together to the U.K. for "Post Empire." The dark comedy will follow "an American Bernie Madoff type in the U. »

Mandy Moore will appear on Fox’s “Red Band Society” in a recurring guest star role as Dr. Erin Grace, chief of staff at the show’s Ocean Park Hospital and ex-fiancee to star Dave Annable’s Dr. McAndrew.
The hourlong drama focuses on a group of teenagers living as patients in a hospital’s pediatric ward. Moore has previously had extended guest star roles on shows like “Entourage,” “Scrubs” and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
The series has also joined together with college marching bands to put on special performances at children’s hospitals across the country ahead of the show’s premiere. Watch a video with star Wilson Cruz and the USC Marching Band at L.A. Children’s Hospital below.

Moore—whose credits include Entourage, Grey’s Anatomy, and A Walk to Remember—will play Dr. Erin Grace, the chief of staff at Ocean Park Hospital, where an eclectic group of young patients are living (and bonding) in the pediatrics wing. Erin also happens to be the ex-fiancée of Dr. Jack McAndrew (Dave Annable), the country’s top pediatric surgeon who also works at the hospital.

Mandy Moore is scrubbing in as what Fox is calling a "recurring guest star" on the freshman hospital dramedy "Red Band Society." The network announced this morning that Moore will play Dr. Erin Grace, chief of staff at Ocean Park Hospital, home to the pediatric wing caring for the show's main characters. Grace is also the ex-fiancee to Dave Annable's Dr. McAndrews, which may cause seconds of confusion for people who think that with dark hair, Mandy Moore has at least a superficial resemblance -- it's in the cheekbones, I think -- to Annable's real-life wife Odette Annable. "Red Band Society" premieres on Wednesday, September 17 at 9 p.m. on Fox. You can check out my Take Me To The Pilots entry for a show that I think has a fair amount of potential. I also talked to co-stars Wilson Cruz and Rebecca Rittenhouse earlier this week and I'll be »

"We're branching out to tell a soap on top of the patients with the hospital staff and we're adding new people," executive producer Rina Mimoun told The Hollywood Reporter. "We focus on patients, but we're building out the adult storylines so we're following their stories as well."
Red Band Society currently stars Annable and Octavia Spencer as a sharp-tongued nurse with a soft heart. Both of the workers at Ocean Park Hospital treat a group of sick teenagers that call the hospital their home. The show focuses on the unlikley friendships between the ailing patients, »

Beware the glob that is The Blob!
The new version of the movie follows the same general plot of the original: A deadly mucilaginous ( a Google thesaurus function word) creature from another planet (possibly…) makes its way to Earth, where it makes its way into a small town, envelops everything in its path and grows at a startling rate. A pair of teenagers (Entourage’s Kevin Dillon and the Saw franchise’s Shawnee Smith) try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously.
Co-written by Frank Darabont in one of his earliest projects prior to The Shawshank Redemption and Walking Dead fame, the movie also stars Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn (another Walking Deader), Bill Moseley, »

Life goes behind the velvet ropes of the Manhattan club scene to tell the story of a young promoter (Ferrara) looking
