iZombie + Veronica Mars = our dream pairing. Let's face it, seeing two of Rob Thomas' quippiest blondes together would be a little too much for our hearts to handle this early on in iZombie's run, but that doesn't mean we can't handle a delightful dash of Veronica Mars in our zombie drama. Veronica Mars fan-favorite Ryan Hansen, who played the lovably deplorable Dick Casablancas on the beloved series and in its movie comeback, is set to guest star in tonight's episode, "Flight of the Living Dead," and we have your exclusive first look at him in all his sarcastic glory. And yes, his character is basically Dick Casablancas 2.0 and we love it! Hansen plays Carson »
Kristen Bell's honesty is beyond refreshing. The actress and mom-of-two shows off her post-baby bod on the May issue of Good Housekeeping magazine in bright springtime florals. Inside the issue, she opens up about motherhood, raising her girls and reveals how she maintains a healthy marriage to hubby Dax Shepard! The "House Of Lies" actress and the "Parenthood" star are parents to two-year-old Lincoln and recently welcomed daughter Delta in December. But, the 34-year-old wasn't always so sure that motherhood was for her. "I wasn’t positive I wanted kids. But I can now confirm having them is absolutely unmissable," she gushes. "When Lincoln came out, at first I was like, 'Eh, what do I do with it? I can take it home?' But when I started breastfeeding, the oxytocin or my hormones or hundreds of thousands of years of evolution kicked in. I didn’t want to let her go. »

But like everyone else, the couple constantly works on their marriage in order to make life better for themselves and their two daughters, Lincoln and Delta. The Veronica Mars star opens up about her marriage, her family and her staunch advocacy for vaccination in the May issue of Good Housekeeping where she explains how having children changed everything about her life. The actress admits that at first she didn't know if she actually wanted to have children. "Before we had the girls, I asked a few people in my life who are annoyingly blunt and honest on every level if we should, knowing that »
"Super Troopers 2" managed to raise more than $2 million on Indiegogo in just 24 hours.

Back in the olden days, when The CW was fresh from its origins as super-channel of the WB and Upn merged together, back when the best it had to offer post-Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls were a handful of cheesy teen dramas and the last gasp of Smallville's decade-long run, and back when Twilight was still a thing people talked about, The Vampire Diaries premiered.
It was a little bit silly, camp and stilted when it began, but fans of the books and the genre took a chance on it, and a solid fanbase was pretty much a sure thing in light of the popularity of vampire content at the time.
Then something weird happened, and people started to realise The Vampire Diaries might actually be a decent show. »

I'm in!'" the actor recently told The TV Junkies. Having played Dick Casablancas in Upn's Veronica Mars and in CW Seed's Play It Again, »
The case, not just the cast, really shines in this week's episode of Castle, Habeas Corpse...
This review contains spoilers.
7.19 Habeas Corpse
This week’s episode, Habeas Corpse, is a bit of a head-scratcher because it is the reverse of what we usually see on Castle. As I’ve spent the last couple of years documenting, Castle is a barely passable procedural largely held together by the chemistry of its cast, its larger story-arcs, and the charm of the occasional standout episode. It is, of course, wholly enjoyable, but the quality is not generally to be found in the cases solved by its protagonists.
This week, however, it is the case that shines brightest, and not just because what surrounds it is so disappointing.
That case revolves around the death of an ambulance-chasing lawyer (in this case, almost literally, in that he at least finds his clients at the final »
Based on the comic book of the same name, the quirky and deliciously fun CW series iZombie follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver), as she navigates her life as a newly turned zombie, who also happens to experience visions from the point of view of the person whose brain she consumes. Keeping her new life a secret from friends and family, she decides to pass herself off as psychic, in order to use her new ability to help investigate and solve crimes. While at WonderCon to promote their freshman series, actors Rose McIver (“Liv Moore”), David Anders (“Blaine DeBeers”), Malcolm Goodwin (“Detective Clive Babineaux”) and Robert Buckley (“Major Lilywhite”) were joined by executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright to talk about using the comic books as a template and expanding from there, just how many zombies might be out there, what’s still to come this season, and having »

A witty erudite blonde solves crimes whilst attempting to overcome the emotional baggage of a previous trauma. For all intents and purposes, Rob Thomas’ iZombie is Veronica Mars - except instead of playing in the shadows of film-noir, Thomas has his feet firmly planted in the ever-popular zombie genre. It’s a welcome mix of the familiar (the aforementioned blonde solving crimes) and the new (said aforementioned blonde is a recently un-dead zombie). Instead of dealing with the murky grey morality of V-Mars, iZombie seems to be concerned with the existential pangs of an existence that has already ended. That the show’s able to ruminate on such meaty topics in between an onslaught of pop-culture jabs and puns shouldn’t come as a surprise. Thomas has always had a deft touch in blending theological musings with a sharp sense of humor. Such was evident at today’s WonderCon panel for the series. »

Formerly known as Loomis Fargo, the long-awaited action heist comedy from Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess has finally arrived as Masterminds. Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis star, and a new trailer gives us a taste of the resulting shenanigans...Inspired by true events in 1997, the story involves armoured car driver David, who channels his disaffection with the job into a plan to liberate a fortune from a bank vault. Sadly for him, there's a glaring trail of evidence, while his cohorts double-cross him and proceed to live it up on the robbery's proceeds while he's left alone on the run in Mexico.

Rooster Teeth turns 12-years-young on April 1, 2015. The Austin, Texas-based production company, online video and machinima pioneer, and prolific creator of high-quality online video programming has a lot of things to celebrate, including more than 16 million subscribers across its half-dozen-or-so established and burgeoning YouTube channels, a thriving destination site with an ardent, active, and happily paying community that’s two-million-unique-visitors-a-month strong, a recent presumably multi-million dollar sale to the YouTube multi-channel network Fullscreen, a growing convention for tens of thousands of fans of gaming and internet culture, and an upcoming feature that’s one of the top most-crowdfunded film campaigns of all time.
It’s that last achievement the individuals at Rooster Teeth should celebrate most as the entity enters the last of its preteen years.

While I'm certainly glad to see this incredible groundswell of support for celebrity-branded crowdfunding campaigns, although most of them do face criticism, I just thought I'd remind you all who have contributed to a celebrity campaign in any way (whether monetarily, or otherwise) not to forget the "little guys" - the filmmakers/content creators who really are resource-strapped, and don't have the celebrity reach that people like Spike Lee, Zach Braff, the "Veronica Mars" crew, Shemar Moore and several other celebs who've successfully raised hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars via crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter »

Politicos, business titans and stars gathered for a press gala in the fall of 2012 to hear the big news: Joel Silver would bring his movie company to Venice’s historic post office. To hear the producer and his backers talk, the move would unleash a creative renaissance for both Silver and the beach community.
“The man who brought us ‘The Matrix,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘Predator’ will have an address that matches his grand imagination,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proclaimed to a crowd that included actor Tobey Maguire and former Yahoo chief Terry Semel, his longtime pal from their days at Warner Bros. Silver pledged to “help change the paradigm of Hollywood,” by turning a refurbished Venice post office into a creative hub, a center for technological innovation and a meeting place for friends and neighbors.
Nearly two and a half years after that elaborate rollout, though, work on Silver »

When a new series comes along that boasts being from the creators of Veronica Mars (among other things it boasts about), that will pull in audiences, but it also sets itself up for a difficult time living up to expectations.
iZombie, the new… criminal investigation meets, well, zombies… show from the CW has a lot to recommend, even just in the theory, but it has to really wow to deliver on the hopes of those who are going to bother to tune in for something called iZombie, and it does.
Rose McIver stars as Liv Moore (ha), a type-a medical student who finds herself turned into a zombie at a boat-party gone wrong. Without a lot of options for procuring brains, she takes a job at the city morgue. Her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), has caught on, and finally catches her in the act of brain consumption, but »

As of 5 p.m. Pdt, the Indiegogo campaign had taken in $2.14 million — thus assuring that the sequel will go into production this summer, 14 years after the original “Super Troopers” was released. The troupe said that Fox Searchlight had agreed to release the sequel if the $2 million goal was met.
The 30-day campaign could eclipse the $5.7 million record for crowdfunding for a film, set by the “Veronica Mars” movie on Kickstarter.
“Super Troopers 2″ reunites all five Troopers from the original film — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. The quintet play goofy Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks.
Pre-production on the film will begin in May, with principal photography starting this summer in the Northeast.
