Grimm: Jason Gedrick to Guest Star in Season 2

According to TVLine, another person with a connection to the Wesen will be appearing on Grimm later this season.

Jason Gedrick has signed on to play Craig Wendell, a murderer currently on his last days on death row. His defense at his trial was that the act was self-defense against the two monsters that attacked him, something that didn't hold water in court and made the man look mentally disturbed in addition to dangerously violent. However, now that Hank has been filled in about the Wesen and everything that Nick's been going through as a Grimm, it might not be too late to save the man from an untimely (and unjust) execution.

But can the two detectives find a loophole to let him go free without having to bring talk of monsters and shape-shifting into it?

In addition to Gedrick's upcoming role, which will feature in an episode this fall,

'Dexter' Season 7 adds Jason Gedrick as a gentlemen's club owner

'Dexter' Season 7 adds Jason Gedrick as a gentlemen's club owner
It's about that time of year when Showtime starts announcing "Dexter's" season-long gueststars and it is kicking things off with Jason Gedrick, who will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen's club over a multi-episode arc. Said gentlemen's club becomes linked to a high-profile murder case of the Miami Metro Homicide division

On the small screen, Gedrick has previously been seen on "Luck," "Desperate Housewives," "Windfall," "Boomtown" and, in our personal favorite, "Murder One," as young Hollywood star Neil Avedon, on trial throughout the season for the murder of a young girl.

There is no word yet as to the season's "big bad." We aren't sure we see the owner of a strip club as fitting that bill - perhaps Gedrick's character ends up on Dexter's table instead? "Dexter" premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Showtime.

G.I. Joe 2: The Rock To Kick Cobra-Candy-Ass With Ninjas

  • ScifiMafia
In June, we brought you the jubilant news that Dwayne Johnson, aka WWE’s The Rock, has been cast in Jon M. Chu’s G.I. Joe sequel, Cobra Strikes. Johnson (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Snitch) would play Roadblock, the heavy machine gunner, cook, and cousin of Heavy Duty played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in the first G.I. Joe film.

In an interview with MTV at the premiere of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, producer Lorenzo di Bonventura teased that this sequel focuses on Snake-Eyes and Roadblock and would not disappoint The Rock fans:

“It’s a full-on lead role [for Johnson]. In a way, he and Snake-Eyes, their stories are really dynamic and very important. Rock is such a great character to have in G.I. Joe. It’s an amazing combination. And we would be not very good if we didn’t fully utilize him. He’s going to

RZA and D.J. Cotrona May Be Recruited For ‘G.I. Joe’ Sequel

Director Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe sequel (which is reportedly titled G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes) is gearing up to begin production in just over a months’ time, with largely a new cast to boot.

The latest additions to the aforementioned acting team look to be none other than Wu-Tang Clan co-founder RZA as the Blind Master and actor D.J. Cotrona (Windfall, Detroit 1-8-7) as the academically-inclined warrant officer, code-named “Flint.”

Heat Vision says both actors are in negotiations to join Chu’s follow-up to the 2009 movie, which will also feature new additions like Elodie Yung (District 13: Ultimatum) as the martial artist Jinx and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the bulky soldier (and excellent chef) Roadblock.

Both Jinx and Snake Eyes (Ray Park) are students of ...

What to Expect When Testing for a TV Pilot

For many actors, getting cast as a series regular on a television pilot is a dream come true. But testing for the pilot can feel more like a nightmare. Picture this: You've made it through the pre-read, the callback, and the producer session. Your agent negotiated your rate and you already signed a "test deal"—your contract, should you get cast. You and a handful of others read for the studio executives. The studio chooses you and one or two others to test for the network. Now all that stands between you and the career of your dreams is a performance in a room full of network executives. No matter how confident you are, the pressure is enough to psych anyone out. Ally Lattman, former vice president of television development for Lionsgate, admits testing can be very intimidating. "At the producer sessions, we are usually sitting on couches, chatting and joking with the actors,

Detroit 1-8-7 TV Review

ABC‘s Detroit 1-8-7 (premiering tonight) has a few stumbling blocks to get past if it hopes to draw in the kind of ratings that are going to keep it around. The first, and most obvious, is the simple fact that it’s a homicide investigation series swimming upstream through a flood of new and returning cop shows and legal dramas. As much as the genre has a lot of historical momentum, there are probably only so many people can watch.

The second is that it is a police drama that abandoned its shtick. Originally working a “documentary” angle, the show ditched that idea midstream in favor of a simple, straight-forward drama. The first couple of episodes still tell that tale by way of the camerawork, and the occasional glimpse into the lens. It still looks like its working the gimmick, there just isn’t any mention of it.

Catching up with 'Beverly Hills, 90210'
After 10 seasons on the small screen, fans of Fox's primetime soap "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990-2000) can relive the magic without guilt. After all, the date is 9/02/10.

"Chuck" executive producer Josh Schwartz tweeted a fan-made video of a "Gossip Girl" opening to "Beverly Hills, 90210's" iconic 1990s theme. Star Jennie Garth, who was a regular for the entire 10-season run said via Twitter, "Love to the original cast and crew. And the new kids too."

Logo from Season 1   The original hourlong drama introduced us to a slew of stars (and two-time Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank) both past and future, and a decade after the show ended its run, several castmembers went on to other projects. But would they be able to sustain success in their post-"90210" careers?

The biggest surprise -- and possible discovery -- was Swank's 16-episode arc as Steve Sanders' (Ian Ziering) girlfriend Carly Reynolds in the ninth season.

Early Reviews & Information on ABC’s FlashForward

It’s been said that the new upcoming ABC series called FlashForward won’t be a rehash of the novel of the same name by Robert Sawyer. In fact it’s being said that it may not be what you expect at all.

FlashForward is about a moment in time when everyone on Earth blacks out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. During that time, people experience visions of where they’ll be on April 29th, 2010, or 6 months into their future (That could be creepy.)

The mass black out does have its tragic side effects - People are doing everyday things when the black out happens and this creates what is described as a semi-apocalyptic moment as planes, trains and automobiles crash with unconscious people at the controls. It’s here that the FlashForward pilot kicks in, introducing the main characters of the show.
