Welling, 40, will take on the role of Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant who is everything Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is not – strategic, reserved and well-respected. But the two also have many things in common, including being handsome, charismatic and charming. According to the character description, "When Pierce starts developing a connection with Decker (Lauren German), Lucifer's devilish traits are inflamed."

The season two finale saw Lucifer taking care of Mom, aka Charlotte (Tricia Helfer). In the beginning of the third season he'll face an "even greater challenge – finding out who kidnapped him, and why his angel wings are back."

Taylor Lautner Takes on a Family Crisis in Run the Tide Clip | Exclusive
Lola (Constance Zimmer) tries to re-connect with her son Rey (Taylor Lautner) in our exclusive clip from Run the Tude, which is currently playing in limited theaters along with On Demand and Digital HD formats.

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director
Nearly nine years after it first hit theaters, Disney's follow-up to Enchanted, titled Disenchaned, has finally found its director. Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which the studio has been developing since 2010. Original Enchaned star Amy Adams is expected to reprise her role as princess Giselle. Although it isn't known if James Marsden or any of the other original cast members will be back for Enchanted 2.

The original Enchanted centered on Amy Adams' Giselle, who is set to marry her Prince Charming (James Marsden) before she is taken from her animated fantasy world and thrust into our real world in New York City. There she meets a lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who is about to marry a woman (Idina Menzel) who is completely wrong for him. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disenchanted will take place 10 years after the original movie,

American Idol Top 10 Recap: Highway to the Danger Zone
“Yo, Shonda Rhimes, I love ABC’s #Tgit programming block. And I’ma let you finish. But American Idol just had one of the craziest Thursdays of all time!”

Ok, I’m sorry. You probably didn’t come here expecting a Kanye West reference — @KimKierkegaardashian’s genius Twitter feed is more my style — in an Idol recap.

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 10 Movie Night and Results
Sorry, but I'm still annoyed that we sent Sarina-Joi Crowe packing. It's not that she didn't, at least on some level, deserve to go. She gave a bad performance at the beginning of a long episode, which is an easy path to being forgotten and being eliminated. Still, "American Idol" lost a singer with almost limitless upside and we kept at least four or five people who almost certainly will never have anywhere near Sarina-Joi's potential. Oh well. After dedicating Wednesday night to two ridiculously high-rated hours of "Empire," Fox is turning Thursday over for a sure-to-be-lower-rated two hours of "American Idol" with a Movie Night theme. This is always one of the show's fuzziest and least justifiable themes and tonight we're using the theme as a hook so that Jennifer Lopez can perform the song she has in an upcoming movie.

Weekend Report (cont.): Final 'Night at the Museum' Narrowly Tops 'Annie'
<< Continued from "Weekend Report: 'Hobbit' Emerges Victorious in Final Box Office 'Battle'"Playing at 3,785 locations, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb opened to $17.1 million this weekend. That's a fraction of the last movie's $54.2 million debut, though that did open over Memorial Day weekend (when the opening frame is much more significant). A better comparison is the first Night at the Museum, which earned $30.4 million on the same weekend back in 2006.More recent comparisons are Fox three-quels The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, which opened to $24 million and $23.2 million, respectively. If the final Night at the Museum follows the same pattern as those movies, it will wind up with less than $100 million total.The second Night at the Museum movie earned 29 percent less than the first, which suggested that the novelty of the original movie had quickly worn off.

One Direction Flick Suffers One of Worst Ever Fri/Sat Drop-Off Rates

One Direction: This Is Us’ movie weekend box office: One of steepest Friday-to-Saturday drops ever (photo: One Direction members Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson) The 3D concert movie One Direction: This Is Us failed to get even close to the $20 million mark at the North American box office this Labor Day weekend (Fri-Sun) despite relatively strong opening-day grosses. Featuring One Direction band members Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson, and directed by Morgan Spurlock, whose Super Size Me was shortlisted for the 2004 Best Documentary Feature Academy Award, One Direction: This Is Us debuted at 2,735 locations, pulling in a not inconsiderable $8.9 million on Thursday evening / Friday, August 29-30, 2013, which should have meant approximately $20 million by Sunday evening — especially taking into account that Monday is a national holiday.

Picture Perfect: A conversation with cinematographer Peter James

Trevor Hogg chats with Primetime Emmy-nominee Peter James about his career and the art of cinematography...

“My father was a house painter and my mother worked at the school canteen; she was a hairdresser as a young girl during the war,” recalls Peter James of his childhood growing up in Sydney, Australia. “We didn’t even have a record player in the house. We didn’t get a black and white TV until 1963.” The prospects for the teenager did not look good until his cousin Jon Cleary, a prolific novelist who had an Oscar nominated adaptation called The Sundowners (1960) produced, intervened. “He had written several film scripts and asked my parents, ‘What is Peter going to do when he finishes school?’ I was only 15. They said, ‘He’s hopeless. He can’t read or write.’ In fact I’m dyslectic. The word dyslectic hadn’t been invented in those days.

Taylor Lautner's 5 funniest screen moments

Taylor Lautner's 5 funniest screen moments
Yesterday, the first trailer for Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" came along, and it reminded many of us that Taylor Lautner - who has a cameo in the film as an uber-macho frat boy - is a pretty funny dude ... a whole lot funnier than his "Twilight Saga" counterpart Jacob Black at least. He's only done a handful of comedic films so far ("Cheaper By The Dozen 2" and "Valentine's Day" among them), but even so Taylor Lautner's still got a pretty nice little funny bone on display in his resume. It's a bit of a shame that he's not done more of this just yet, so in hopes that this "Grown Ups 2" cameo business might just steer him further into the comedy movie fold from here on out, here's a look back at some of the most Lol-worthy Tay Tay times to-date.

Taylor Lautner has big aspirations. The 20-year-old Twilight actor, who will make his final bow as Jacob Black in Breaking Dawn – Part 2 this week, is hardly new to Hollywood. At 13 years old, Lautner was starring in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl and Cheaper by the Dozen 2, opposite Steve Martin. Three years later, Lautner debuted as Kristen Stewart’s possible love interest in what would become a worldwide phenomenon and multibillion-dollar franchise.

‘This Is Where I Leave You’ Adaptation Trades Sideways for Shawn Levy

Director Adam Shankman has helmed A Walk to Remember, Bringing Down the House, The Pacifier, Cheaper By the Dozen 2, Hairspray, Bedtime Stories, and Rock of Ages. This is not a good resume (save for Hairspray, which is certainly passable as a fun revamp of the ’80s John Waters classic, at least in terms of sudsing it up for a new audience). The attachment of Shankman to a project does nothing for me (particularly after recently watching Rock of Ages after months of putting it off, which firmly established that production as a strong contender for Worst Film of the Year, at least in my mind), and yet, similarly, neither does the attachment of Shawn Levy (to be fair, Levy’s resume includes Just Married, Night at the Museum, Date Night, and Real Steel). So how funny then that a long-gestating project that once belonged to Shankman is now in Levy’s hands. Cue

[Review] Rock of Ages

A few years ago Adam Shankman showed he had more in him than what The Pacifier and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 suggested, by wonderfully bringing John WatersHairspray to the big screen. It was energetic and lively, John Travolta in a fat suit and all. With his adaptation of Rock of Ages, he only captures a little bit of that previous magic on screen.

For the first thirty minutes, Shankman’s film represents the gravest fears the film’s trailers gave off: no story, just a nonstop, meandering celebrity karaoke party. Once the story picks up, it remains somewhat thin, but showering bursts of energy here and there. The two leads, Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) and Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), are partially to blame for the lack of a full blown good time.

Sherrie has come to the Sunset Strip from Oklahoma to make it as a singer. As she soon learns,

Taylor Lautner's 'Grown Ups 2' role revealed

Taylor Lautner's 'Grown Ups 2' role revealed
Taylor Lautner's foray into comedy for Grown Ups 2 promises to be a "fun" role, and today a new detail about what exactly his part in the film will entail has been unveiled. According to MTV, Lautner's co-star Milo Ventimiglia spilled that the two will be appearing together in the film as college frat boys. "We're playing fraternity brothers. I haven't started - I'm heading out the day after tomorrow - but I met him. He's a sweet kid. A very, very nice guy," he explained. Grown Ups 2 won't be Taylor Lautner's first turn in the comedy world, of course. He's hosted Saturday Night Live, helmed a Funny Or Die sketch about the NFL, portrayed a simple high school track star in Valentine's Day, and starred as the young villain in Cheaper By The Dozen 2 ....

Eugene Levy: 'American Pie got kinda graphic'

The actor on juggling popular teen comedy and mild-mannered mockumentary – and why he's not a fan of the American version of The Office

Eugene Levy does not look quite comfortable, standing on the sofa. Those Groucho brows are frowning, surprised eyes wide. He knows the photos will work better if he's three feet up, and he's much too polite to gripe. But he's wary. That cushion is just a touch plush. Plus, he's had a run of bad luck lately. Yesterday's fish and chips was followed by emergency dental work. Last winter's ceremony to pick up his Order of Canada medal was interrupted by a kidney stone: "I would rather pass a 15-pound baby."

He climbs down gingerly, folds his legs, looks more zen. In fact, Levy has long pulled off one of the most brilliant balancing acts in cinema. Few are so adept at straddling the super-mainstream and the deeply niche.

Taylor Lautner to play 'fun' role in 'Grown Ups 2'

Taylor Lautner to play 'fun' role in 'Grown Ups 2'
Taylor Lautner will be playing a "fun" role in Grown Ups 2, the upcoming sequel to Adam Sandler's 2010 comedy with Kevin James, Maya Rudolph, David Spade, Salma Hayek, and Chris Rock. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lautner joins the comedy sequel to portray a character who goes "toe-to-toe" with Sandler's. This is familiar territory for Taylor Lautner, who appeared in the 2005 comedy sequel Cheaper By The Dozen 2 as the neighbor's son, "Elliott Murtaugh." He's also been keeping his funny bone exercised recently, having appeared in last summer's "Field of Dreams 2" sketch comedy video for Funny or Die. Lautner is also still expected to collaborate with director Gus Van Sant on an indie film based upon a story seen in The New Yorker, and the final installment to the Twilight Saga franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, hits theaters this Novemb ...
