Desperate Nicollette Sheridan Denied Second Trial

18 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

ABC’s hit show Desperate Housewives may be long gone, but Nicollette Sheridan is not giving up. After filing a lawsuit against Marc Cherry & ABC for wrongful termination and assault that she lost, she decided to try to land a second trial. Now it appears that Nicollette will not even win that. 2nd District Court of Appeal said she could not have the case go to trial again, after another judge said she could. No word on what she will do, but it all water under the bridge now.

The dark comedy won over many hearts and made each actress a star for a while. It ended in 2012 with a shorter season. Nicollette claims she was sexually harressed and then fired by having her character killed off. All of this was not ruled in her favor and also saw her career go down dramtically.

So who is she? Angelique is a model, exotic dancer and, er, 'adult film star'.

What do I need to know? Angelique is nicknamed Frenchy, presumably because she was raised in Paris. She's probably the star who'll get the most 'who?' comments, but if you want to know your stuff, she landed appearances on the Howard Stern Show after being on Playboy TV. Since then, she's been on reality shows Rock of Love, Charm School and I Love Money - oh, and some of you might be pretending you »

Nicollette Sheridan won't be heading back to court after all for her allegations that Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry assaulted her and ABC wrongfully fired her from the show. The 2nd District Court of Appeal overturned the decision by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to retry the case, City News Service reported.

Selena Gomez Mourns Her Dead Boyfriend in Rudderless Trailer

14 August 2014 9:12 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Here's the first trailer for William H. Macy's feature directorial debut, Rudderless — which premiered at this year's Sundance fest — about a grieving father named Sam (Billy Crudup) who comes to terms with the death of his son by starting a band and performing his late son's music. Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman plays the grieving mother, Selena Gomez (hopefully rebounding from the curse of the 0 percent tomatoes) is the grieving girlfriend, and Anton Yelchin is the surrogate-son figure who helps Sam find his rudder (?) again through the gift of song. Also through boating? There are a few metaphors going on here. »

Twin Peaks’ Kyle MacLachlan Joins Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. In Major Role

8 August 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel did little over the course of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s first season to get us legitimately excited about a second one, but the studio has been slowly fixing that over the last few weeks. As the series gears up for its sophomore year, it’s been gaining new cast members along the way, like Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica actress Lucy Lawless, and Marvel Comics characters Mockingbird and Kraken.

On Thursday, TV Line reported that two new names have been added to the roster: Twin Peaks and Desperate Housewives alum Kyle MachLachlan, and NYPD Blue actor Henry Simmons.

Simmons will take on the role of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie, “a mechanic in his early 30s.” In the comics, Mac is a veteran agent who often finds himself at odds with Nick Fury, and who has dealings with Jessica Jones (who is getting »

Kyle MacLachlan Plays The Doctor In ‘Marvel’s Agents Of Shield’

8 August 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s appeared in many of the USA’s biggest shows over the past 25 years, now Kyle MacLachlan has further cemented his iconic credentials by joining the Marvel universe for Agents Of Shield. The square-jawed, quirky actor is playing the father of Skye (Chloe Bennet) and will reportedly have an air of mystery about him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he possessed some superheroic tendencies – they’d be mad not to at least have him levitating a cup with his mind or something! Intriguingly, some sites list him as “The Doctor”. Surely this isn’t a fanboy-mind-melting crossover in the works!?

MacLachlan is still perhaps best known as Special Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks and for his work with that project’s co-creator David Lynch in Dune (his feature debut) and Blue Velvet. Since then he’s been in the regular casts for Sex And The City, Desperate Housewives, »
