What would Nikki Reed say? It's been almost nine years since Maggie Grace and Ian Somerhalder dated, but the Lost costars have remained close. In an interview for the February issue of New You, Grace, 31, talked about her current relationship with her ex. "I haven’t dated too many actors," the Taken 3 star said. "I did when I was really young, for a couple of years, but it’s nothing against actors. Ian Somerhalder and I are still very good friends. You can certainly reconcile schedules with [...] »
At the start of the Civil War, a Virginia family — led by their West Point bred son, John Rhodes (played by Nathan Parsons, True Blood) — makes the controversial decision to defend the South while freeing all of their slaves.
Battling both his northern brethren and his best friend and brother-in-law, John leaves his three strong-willed sisters at home to run the plantation that is now without a free labor source. The choice to both protect the life they have always known while defending the moral high ground will pit the family against one another and test their strength, courage and love.
Point of Honor also stars Annabelle Stephenson (Revenge) as Kate Rhodes, Riley Voelkel (The Newsroom) as Lorelei Rhodes, Hanna Mangan Lawrence (Old School) as Estella Rhodes, Patrick Heusinger (Revolution) as Colonel Palmer Kane, Luke Benward (Ravenswood) as Garland Rhodes, Adrienne Warren (Black Box) as Abby, Lucien Laviscount (Waterloo Road) as Elijah, »

Of the five Oscar-nominated original songs for the 87th Academy Awards, Selma’s “Glory” and Beyond the Light’s “Grateful” are the only songs that solely play over the end credits of their respective film. The other three songs — “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Lost Stars” from Begin Again and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me — are all performed at some point during the film.
Now, that’s not to say that the end-credits songs aren’t relevant to the plot. Both “Grateful” and “Glory” stick with the themes of their respective films and summarize relevant events, even if they aren’t integral to each plot’s progression.
“Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie is featured in the film as a popular song in the Lego universe, one the characters sing along to, but »

The 100 season 2 returns from its mid-season hiatus on a strong note that adds further complexity to Clarke's character...
This review contains spoilers.
2.9 Remember Me
Clarke has always been a funny little character in the sense that she started out as a leader. Most shows would have someone like her start off reluctant and somewhat incapable of leading a huge group of unstable teenagers, but from the very first scene we've been asked to believe that she would be the most suitable for the job.
That's something that bugged me in the pilot – that Abby told the audience Clarke was a strong, moral leader before we had a chance to see it for ourselves.
But, much in the same way as it's handled Finn, season two has made steps to change that slightly and, although there's now little doubt that Abby had been right about Clarke, the cracks are beginning to show. »
If you’re a Den Of Geek regular, you’ll probably already be aware of the selection box of online treats that accompanies many of your favourite TV programmes.
The last six or seven years have seen Us TV companies in particular seek to extend the value of their most popular shows – and ramp up their engagement with viewers – by offering a host of online content alongside their scheduled programming.
This will often include additional and exclusive content such as trailers, interviews and competitions, all created to attract fans eager to get another fix of their favourite show. But it’s the ‘webisodes’ that often prove most popular among online audiences, with series such as The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, True Blood, Community, Ray Donovan and Grimm »

This article is part of a series about the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (Tami) video library. For an overview of the Tami site, refer to this article.
The Texas Hill Country town of Luckenbach may be little more than a few buildings, including a general store and a dance hall. But few places are more symbolic of mythic Texas than this honky-tonk mecca, party venue and tourist destination a few miles south of Fredericksburg.
Luckenbach owes much of its fame to Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, of course; their 1977 hit "Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)" introduced the tiny town to a vast audience and made it an essential part of Texas pop culture. But modern Luckenbach might not exist at all if not for another legendary Texan -- Hondo Crouch.
A satirist, writer, rancher, musician, artist, swimming coach and self described "imagineer," Crouch bought the »

Kevin Hart has revealed the one role that he regrets turning down.
In a recent interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, the 35-year-old comedian reveals he actually turned down the role of rapper Alpa Chino in 2008's Tropic Thunder, which eventually went to Brandon T. Jackson. The action comedy starring A-listers Robert Downey, Jr., Ben Stiller and Jack Black went on to become both a huge critical and box office hit.
According to Hart, the original draft of the script had the closeted character role being a lot more "flagrant."
"In my defense -- first of all, before I say this, I'm politically correct. To the gay community, I respect and appreciate you for everything y'all do, and as people, I love you -- the part was way more ... in the beginning, the dude was »
Johnny Depp called out actors trying to piggyback their fame into musical careers, telling reporters in Berlin, "That whole idea for me is a sickening thing, it's always just made me sick," the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Depp — who was promoting his upcoming film Mortdecai — periodically moonlights as a guitarist, playing both live and in the studio with a number of high-profile acts. And while the actor said he was grateful for those opportunities, and that he would continue to play, he promised he wouldn't be forming The Johnny Depp Band anytime soon. »
Virus thriller Helix is back for season 2, and it's as problematic as its decidedly patchy first run...
This review contains spoilers.
2.1 San Jose
I’m not sure if I’d just missed the announcement or I’d subconsciously decided not to accept it, but Helix has returned.
It arrived like that knock at a Christmas family reunion, where at the door is a relative nobody likes. The choices are stark: hide well away from the windows, or confront the inevitable.
Having now seen San Jose, I made the wrong call when I went to the door.
Even before it started, having entitled it San Jose, I knew they’d put Do You Know The Way To San Jose by Dionne Warwick in there, and right after the compressed events of season 1, there it was.
The plot starts a few years after the first season and the implausible events of Artic Biosystems, »

"On Saturday, January 17, at approximately 4:00 in the afternoon, we received a call saying that a male had been struck by a Metrolink Train in Burbank, California. Once police and paramedics arrived on the scene, the man was identified as George Gregory Plitt. Mr. Plitt was pronounced dead at the scene," Sgt. Chris Canales of the Burbank Police Department told Access Hollywood.
Investigators have determined this incident was not a suicide.

It’s a miracle that as horror fans, we haven’t seen everything under the sun by now. It’s rare for a film to come along that, while it might fall somewhat within a particular genre or subgenre, not only breathes new life into said subgenre, but does so in a way that you’re able to lose yourself within the film. It happens so rarely, that when it does, it comes as one hell of a pleasant shock. Truth be told, I walked into the Chris Sparling written and directed faux-documentary The Atticus Institute with low expectations. I had absolutely loved the Ryan Reynolds trapped in a box and buried underground film Buried, which Sparling had written, but I’ve just had my fill of Pov/Found Footage/etc kinds of films that as previously stated, I had low expectations. Well, fright fanatics, I’m not above admitting »

I was surprised by The Wedding Ringer. Actually, I should clarify that statement: I didn’t hate The Wedding Ringer. Released in the January doldrums, backing Kevin Hart as its headline act and sticking by a title that sounds uncomfortably familiar to that other wedding movie from over a decade ago, not much was weighing in its favor. The movie, while entirely predictable and with the occasional questionably offensive joke, never becomes the broad, pandering slap-stick-a-thon its scant trailers make it out to be. Unfortunately, on the other hand, I’d be hard pressed to argue that anyone walking out of the theater this weekend will remember it come the Spring.
Kevin Hart plays Jimmy Callahan, the self-described wedding ringer, who sells a sort of best-friend-for-hire service to friendless grooms. At varying levels of service, he attends rehearsal dinners, talks up the groom to family, and gives a big, emotional »

Stephen King has teamed up with David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice, Boston Legal) to adapt his novel Mr. Mercedes into a limited series. This is one of the few books King has written that I haven’t had a chance to read yet. The story centers on a psychopath who commits mass murder by driving his Mercedes into a crowd, and it follows a retired cop who makes it his mission to bring him to justice. Kelley had this to say in a statement:
“This is an amazing opportunity to adapt a script from material penned by one of the world’s most acclaimed and accomplished authors. ‘Mr. Mercedes’ is a great story that will translate beautifully to the screen if I don’t mess it up.”
This sounds like it could make for a fantastic series to watch. It will be directed by Jack Bender, who previously »

The Wedding Ringer, 2015.
Directed by Jeremy Garelick.
Two weeks shy of his wedding, a socially awkward guy enters into a charade by hiring the owner of a company that provides best men for grooms in need.
Confession time: I find Kevin Hart and his unlimited energy for hyperactive comedy antics a hoot. We are talking so funny to the point that I almost automatically to an extent can enjoy anything Kevin Hart is a part of. He knows how to deliver lines, make the most of his limited physical stature for laughs, and how to take his frenetic style of comedy and turn it into a sledgehammer of a weapon.
So it goes without saying that I did find parts of The Wedding Ringer hilarious, but make no mistake about it, »

J.J. Abrams (Lost, Fringe), Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), Shawn Ryan (The Shield), Damon Lindelof (Lost) and countless others shift from behind the scenes to become the focus of a new documentary, Showrunners: The Art Of Running A TV Show. The doc offers numerous first-hand accounts of what it takes to get a TV show on the air and features a backstory that is almost as equally fascinating. Director Des Doyle and Co-Producer Ryan Patrick McGuffey, both natives of Ireland, sat down recently to discuss the arduous journey of bringing this film to life. "For anyone who has ever truly pursued the dream of making a film, they know it comes with costs attached. “The lucky thing about being a first-time director is that naiveté can make you unaware of just how big a challenge you've set yourself, »

We still have almost an almost two-month wait until Once Upon a Time returns with new episodes, and the show has been making a lot of interesting casting announcements regarding the back half of Season 4, which will focus on Rumpelstiltskin and the Queens of Darkness (Maleficent, Ursula, and Cruella de Vil) as they search for a way to get their own happy endings. The latest casting news is that Once Upon a Time has added Mad Men and Lost alum Patrick Fischler to recur during Season 4B, but the question remains if he will be helping or thwarting Rumple and the Queens. According to TVLine, the character that Fischler will be playing “comes across as well-intentioned but is actually a quick-witted, arrogant man with reckless impulses. He will appear in both the fairytale land and Storybrooke,” thus meaning that he has to be a fairytale character of some sort and »

Just as it made a strong showing in the Oscar nominations Thursday morning, “Birdman” was the front-runner with the most nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Thursday night. It also ended the night with the most trophies, taking home seven, including both Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy for Michael Keaton, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Editing — the film was shot to look as if it was a single continuous take.
