Prepare to meet the most hated man in Washington D.C. After hearing bits and pieces of Abby's (Darby Stanchfield) sad backstory, Scandal fans are finally going to see the bold redhead's past come to life. Battlestar Galactica's Michael Trucco is set to guest star on the ABC hit series as Charles Putney, Abby's estranged ex-husband, E! News has confirmed. And yes, we already hate him. Why? As die-hard Gladiators may remember, Abby and Charles are estranged because he physically assaulted her while drunk, breaking her jaw and ribs, leading Olivia (Kerry Washington) to handle the situation for her longtime friend. And by that we mean she took a tire iron to his knee. The son of former »

We're finally going to meet Abby Whelan's abusive ex-husband. Battlestar Galactica alum Michael Trucco has landed the role on Scandal, EW has learned. Trucco will play Charles Putney, whom Olivia (Kerry Washington) apparently took a tire iron to after he broke Abby’s ribs and jaw years prior. Details on why Charles comes back into the picture are being kept under wraps, but surely Abby won’t be pleased.

If anyone has noticed a different attitude from Syfy over the past year, it's probably Bill McGoldrick they would have to thank. McGoldrick, who took over the original content duties from Mark Stern last year, knows that the face of television has changed with the likes of "Game of Thrones" on HBO, "Breaking Bad" on AMC and "Fargo" on FX. And because television is changing and evolving, so is Syfy. "This year and next year is going to be Syfy at its finest," cable channel President Dave Howe told reporters at Monday's Syfy Digital Press Tour in Orlando. "We have big, bold ambitious scripted series at the level of 'Battlestar Galactica' and the miniseries events, and the plethora of announcements that have been going on the last six months thanks to Bill and his team has been incredible."

Before I Go to Sleep casts Kidman as a 40-year-old woman who wakes up every day with a blank memory. Firth is her husband who tells her they.ve been married for 14 years and Mark Strong is her neuro-psychologist who encourages her to keep a daily video diary so she can help rebuild her life.
The thriller directed by Rowan Joffe, adapted from S. J. Watson.s best-selling novel, may not have sent audiences to sleep but relatively few bothered to turn up as the film fetched $418,000 on a very wide 194 screens.
Nationwide takings dropped by 16% to $9.7 million as none of the other newcomers much enthused cinemagoers, according to Rentrak.s weekend estimates. Distributors say the market is soft and especially shallow below the top three titles. »

Katee Sackhoff: (Giggles) He’s trying to get me to admit on film, and then it’ll be legally binding.
Mt: I would never legally bind you. (pair laugh) Yeah I’m actually hoping to produce a film, we’re »

NCIS: New Orleans will stage a Quantum Leap reunion during November Sweeps. Dean Stockwell has booked a guest-starring role on the CBS procedural, reuniting him with Leap co-star Scott Bakula, EW has learned exclusively. The Battlestar Galactica alum will play Tom Hamilton, a proud and spirited retired New Orleans cop who still has his wits about him. When confronted by investigators about a murder 40 years ago, he arrogantly pushes back using his knowledge and experience. Tom Hamilton is also the father of Councilman Douglas Hamilton (recurring guest-star Steven Weber). "We did it!" executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "We found an »

Appearing in the Nov. 21 episode, Garber will play Donald Stein, the charismatic scion of a New York real estate dynasty.

The shields are down, the landing bay doors have blown open, and many of Star Wars: Episode VII's secrets just got sucked into cyberspace. An Imageshack account under the handle "themillenniumfalcon" posted 32 drawings from the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie that revealed some major details from the film, due in theaters Dec. 18, 2015. Here's the thing ... EW's not going to post the photos or link to them. Stolen goods, folks, and it's not the Pentagon Papers or a Wikileaks dump that concerns the public good. In the interest of respecting the storytellers, we're going to refrain from publishing purloined images the »

The Good Wife without the tough, resourceful and mysteriously sexy Kalinda Sharma?
It sounds almost inconceivable — yet it will be the new reality for CBS’ acclaimed drama now that Emmy winner Archie Panjabi has announced her intention to exit the series at the end of the current sixth season.
Yet as Panjabi plots her next move — she’s signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to headline a potential drama pilot for the 2015-16 TV season — Good Wife showrunners Robert and Michelle King will have to figure out a way for Kalinda to exit, if not gracefully, then at least dramatically. »

Dragon Con is always a blast (and a place where many photos are taken. Check out those taken by ComicMix photographer Jason Ward and me here). The first thing I have to mention is my favorite part of this year’s Dragon Con, and that was spending time with several excellent friends, and particularly with a couple of friends who’d never experienced Dragon Con (or any con, in Cleolinda’s case) before. Getting to experience the fun with them while they took it in for the first time, and then declared that they’d definitely like to come back next year, just made everything that much better for me. I can’t even really express how cool it was to see friends getting to fully be themselves as they enjoyed the con geekery. But let me assure you: it was very cool!

Anime fan favourite Space Pirate Captain Harlock stars in a new movie... but is it worth the wait?
If you're a fan of manga, you probably already know Harlock, although his fan following is much larger in France, Quebec and Japan. Harlock is the brainchild of Leiji Matsumoto (creator of Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers). Harlock was created in the 50s, but his breakthrough came in 1978 with the release of the original television series, Space Pirate Captain Harlock. He has since then seen many incarnations, but he had been absent from our screens since 2002. Given the current trend of revisiting old franchise favourites, Harlock was bound to suffer the reboot treatment at one point. Harlock has already been rebooted several times over the years, long before the term "reboot" was actually coined, so it shouldn't have been a big deal, but some fans feared that Harlock's move to the big »

After collapsing, all five individuals come back to life just hours later with inexplicable powers, including strength and the power to heal.

And now, EW has learned exclusively that two others have joined the mix. »

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. But it's nonetheless rare to see a fictional universe with a woman in one of the nation's top three positions of political power. (Yep, even in fake realities, politics is a man's game.) And historically speaking, Hollywood has played it as a joke more often than not. So which fictional female presidents, vice presidents »
