“Kevin From Work” operates on two tiers, not quite equally. At its core is a sweet (if unrequited) romance, about a young guy who secretly pines for the gal who sits in the adjacent cubicle. And that’s enveloped, chaotically, by a wacky, over-the-top, frequently lewd comedy, derived from all the strange characters that surround them. The two tastes — sweet and silly — don’t always mesh, but there’s enough here to like to put this ABC Family comedy in the “recommended” column, with the understanding that keeping its balance might be a bigger job than “Kevin” can handle.
The title character (Noah Reid) has fared reasonably well at the faceless food-supply company at which he toils, but he’s jumped at the opportunity to work in Italy. No, it’s not because of his crazy boss (Amy Sedaris) or eccentric co-workers, but rather due to the fact that spending »

Watching countless hours of telly can make you feel like you know the settings of your favourite shows like the back of your hand.
Have you ever wanted to redesign your house or flat to make it look as close to Monica and Rachel's apartment in Friends or Sherlock's bachelor pad as possible? Well, these amazing floorplans might be a start.

1. Friends: Monica, Rachel, Joey and Chandler's apartments
Considering Monica's apartment was a "frigging steal", this shows just how amazing her New York pad is. It's certainly more spacious than Joey's across the hall, but when you've got comfy armchairs and foosball, who cares? Plus, we all know it's Monica's mess that fills up the ? room.

Chicago – Jason Segel is a real mensch. The tall and angular actor is open, active and caring about his career, and he fulfills another part of his performance evolution in director James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour.” Segel portrays author David Foster Wallace, when he appeared on behalf of his 1996 novel “Infinite Jest.”
“The End of the Tour” focuses on four days in the life of Wallace, as a Rolling Stone magazine reporter named David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) follows Wallace around as he makes one last stop on his book tour for “Infinite Jest.” It’s basically about the two men as they interact, jousting upon the issues in the book, Wallace’s choices in his modest lifestyle and how some encounters on the tour in Minnesota add another dynamic to their relationship.

Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.
Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.
Mr. Robinson stars Craig Robinson as a part-time substitute/part-time singer who runs into an old flame and hopes to rekindle things. When he learns that she now teaches at their old High School, he takes the first chance he gets to substitute there.
Mr. Robinson is laid-back almost to a fault… well, probably to a fault. He quickly hints that he wasn’t very serious about school, and hasn’t been very serious about anything since, but he »

Question: Any intel on whether Penny and Leonard will actually tie the knot on The Big Bang Theory? —Susan
Ausiello: They’ll certainly get close to tying the knot. The CBS smash is currently looking for a male actor in his 50s to play a minister in the Season 9 premiere, which confirms that P&L are still in full-tilt Vegas elopement mode when the action picks up. That syncs with this scoop I snagged from Ep Steve Molaro »
Read More: James Ponsoldt on Why 'The End of the Tour' Is Not a David Foster Wallace Biopic David Foster Wallace is not the sort of role that an actor takes lightly. When Jason Segel (known primarily as the self-effacing funnyman who starred in Apatow joints "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and "I Love You, Man" as well as happily married Marshall on ubersitcom "How I Met Your Mother") signed on to portray the celebrated writer in James Ponsoldt’s "The End Of The Tour," he exercised due diligence. The result was a performance of unanticipated nuance and power, uncannily replicating the Wallace preserved in interview clips and writing samples while also unearthing hidden depths of personality that only a premise this intimate could afford. Jesse Eisenberg joins Segel as small-time novelist David Lipsky, sent by Rolling Stone to cover the tail end of Wallace’s book tour in support of "Infinite Jest. »

Yesterday we found out that producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, Punisher: Dirty Laundry) would team with Stewart Yost to co-direct a dark new superhero series for HBO titled Gods And Secrets, which is said to be (and very much sounds to be) inspired by Alan Moore's Watchmen. Now The Wrap reports that Denise Richards (Wild Things, Starship Troopers, The World Is Not Enough) and Jane Seymour (Live And Let Die, How I Met Your Mother, Battlestar Galactica) have joined the cast in unspecified roles. Gods And Secrets will focus on the exploits of a superteam known as the "Guardians of Justice", and will explore "the darker ramifications of a world filled with superheroes — for the people they protect and the famous heroes themselves." Former WWE Superstar Diamond Dallas Page, Jackson Rathbone (The Twilight Saga), Kellan Lutz (The Legend Of Hercules), Sharni Vinson (You're Next) and Andy Milonakis will also star, »
There’s an episode of How I Met Your Mother where Katy Perry plays a young woman called Honey because the gang can’t remember her real name. It’s not because she reminds them of the titular character played by Jessica Alba in the 2003 hip-hop dance movie. They call her Honey because every time she tells them a story — for example, she tells them her film career is going to take off because she met a film producer … who lives behind a KFC — they collectively go, “Oh, honey.” I feel like Kaitlyn this whole episode and this whole season has been a Honey because she’s so trusting and makes openhearted mistakes, but you still want to grab her shoulder and shake your head and go, “Oh, honey.” Because Kaitlyn behaves so earnestly and approaches life like a child looking at Golden Corral’s chocolate fountain.Buuuuuuuuuuut homegirl could »

Being part of a comic franchise isn't for everyone. While some might be comfortable with a contract that spans several pictures, as well as crosses media boundaries into other tie-ins, others aren't so thrilled about being part of the comic world. For every Hugo Weaving, there's a Samuel L. Jackson, and Cobie Smulders definitely falls into the Jackson camp, as she's a fan of being a part of the Marvel Universe. While promoting her new film, Unexpected, Smulders sat down with The Daily Beast to discuss everything from how her recent pregnancy helped with her role as a pregnant teacher to her life after the end of the smash hit show How I Met Your Mother. But, as always, if you're in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you're going to be asked about what life is like inside of the frames inspired by the page. More specifically, the question of job »
Cobie Smulders is not accustomed to being singled out. The How I Met Your Mother star and Marvel universe apparatchik tends to operate in the company of others, which is why she found herself somewhat stricken with panic earlier this year at the Sundance premiere of her latest film, Unexpected, which opens in theaters and on demand this Friday. "Oh shit," she recalls thinking. "I'm in every scene."
It's true, she is — though it's about time. Fans of her CBS sitcom, which concluded its nine-season run last year, might agree »

Lyndsy Fonseca has done a pretty good job of staying on our radar since the Kick-ass films with appearances in How I Met Your Mother and Agent Carter, but even that's not enough. Thankfully, Fonseca is gracing the screen again, this time in the comedy The Escort, co-starring with none other than Bruce "boomstick" Campbell, Rumer Willis, Tommy Dewey, and Michael Doneger, which has a kind of...

All your favorites have moved to Fargo. Seriously, all your favorite stars from Nick Offerman and Kirsten Dunst to House of Cards' Elizabeth Marvel and Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan are in the new season and this Fargo season two trailer features them all and it will get you mighty excited, hon.

How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti is Lou's wife, Betsy, Cheers veteran Ted Danson plays Sheriff Hank Larrson, Designing Women's Jean Smart is Floyd Gerhardt—she seems like a total badass, by the way!—and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
