The actress, whose NBC drama is in the midst of its final, 13-episode season, has landed a guest-starring role on CBS’ upcoming reboot of The Odd Couple, where she’ll play the ex-wife of Matthew Perry’s Oscar, TVLine has confirmed.
Despite the fact that the union between Oscar and Graham’s character, Gaby, was a stormy, the couple will nevertheless exhibit warm chemistry as divorcées.
In a bit of meta casting, Graham will be playing Perry’s character Oscar Madison’s ex-wife in the modern retelling of Neil Simon’s 1965 play, reported Entertainment Weekly. As the story goes, Oscar and Gaby go through a rough divorce, but find a deep friendship and affection for one another following the end of their marriage. After the divorce, the laidback Oscar moves in with the ever-uptight Felix Unger, who will be played by Thomas Lennon (Night at the Museum, Reno 911!).
Graham and Perry, who dated after meeting in 2002, have previously worked together on Perry’s other sitcom efforts Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Graham, who is best known for playing single mom Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, currently stars on Parenthood, »

“Did you see last night’s ratings for ‘Ray Donovan?’”
It’s the morning after the show’s second-season finale, and Showtime president David Nevins sounds like a proud father, high-fiving a visitor to his Westwood office and firing off stats: The Liev Schreiber drama hit a series-high 2 million viewers. “It’s up 40% from last year,” he says, with a broad grin.
Nevins has good reason to be happy on this late-September day. “Ray Donovan” indeed blossomed into a ratings hit for his network in its sophomore season (even with behind-the-scenes drama forcing a change in showrunner for season three). “Masters of Sex” also wrapped its second season with heightened critical acclaim for the show and the performances of stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
With a week to go before the fourth-season relaunch of “Homeland,” the early reviews are mostly good as the drama reboots itself in an effort »

In the past 10 years, Lionsgate Television’s biz has grown from $8 million to $500 million in sales, and according to Beggs, the international market has been a driving force behind that growth.
“Before anything goes out the door, we have to have a feel that it will work internationally,” Beggs said. “There are certain shows we can’t get behind because the international market can’t get behind them.”
“Orange Is the New Black” is indeed the most-watched show on Netflix in France and Germany, where the digital service launched last month. »

There was a time when such cutting-edge fare as Nurse Jackie, Nashville and Orange Is the New Black would have been considered a tough sell internationally. But, according to Kevin Beggs, chairman of Lionsgate Television Group, which produces all those shows, and AMC's Mad Men, the world has changed. Orange Is the New Black is the most successful show on Netflix' new channels in continental Europe, evidence that groundbreaking U.S. drama can also go global. Beggs put the international success down to showrunner Jenji Kohan. “We were confident about Orange because of Jenji,” he explained. “She did Weeds for us,

Filming on Ant-Man might be well underway, but that hasn’t stopped the project from adding another name to its ensemble, with Martin Donovan signing on to join the cast. The Weeds actor has agreed to take an undisclosed role in the film, and while the character’s identity is shrouded in mystery, THR describes him as “pivotal”. Given that filming has been going on for some two months now, we’d assumed that Donovan’s role is a minor one, with possible significance to a future film. Marvel does like to set up future movies in...

Ant-Man has been filming for almost two months, but they've just added another bit of casting. According to THR, Martin Donovan (Weeds) has joined the cast to play a "pivotal" role that's being kept under wraps. At this stage in the game, it's presumably a minor role, but if it's "pivotal", I'm going to assume it might have consequences far beyond this movie, and with Marvel, that's my working theory: everything branches out to much, much bigger stuff. Or maybe he's just a guy that tells Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) some stuff about ants. Entomology is important. The film also stars Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015. Donovan will next be seen this December in Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice.

Character actors have become an integral part to the success of any modern-day blockbuster. Would The Dark Knight have truly blossomed without Michael Caine or Morgan Freeman? What about Guardians of the Galaxy without John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker or Benico Del Toro?

While there’s always something stirring about one Marvel project or another, there’s one property that’s been suspiciously quiet as of late. It’s been a good six weeks since we’ve had any news on their troubled title, Ant-Man. Even then, it was a straw-clutching report about Evangeline Lilly’s haircut.
Now, however, we have something a bit more exciting, as THR reports that Weeds star Martin Donovan has joined the cast. As secrecy surrounding the pic is paramount, there’s very little they can reveal about who it is he’ll be playing. In fact, this is all they would offer:
Donovan’s role is being kept under wraps, but sources say it is pivotal to the story.
