Scott Porter is leaving the sunny streets of Bluebell behind and heading to a place that sounds much more sinister. The Hart of Dixie alum has joined Cinemax’s upcoming thriller Outcast as a series regular. Per Deadline, which first reported the casting news, Porter will paly Donnie Hamel, “an amiable and engaging type-a former jock whose work returns him home to Rome, West Virginia. There he crosses paths with Megan Holter (played by The Americans’ Wrenn Schmidt) and a more sinister side of Donnie is revealed.” In addition to his work on Hart of Dixie, Porter starred as Jason Street on Friday Night Lights. His other TV credits include The Good Wife, Caprica, and Parenthood. Outcast, which comes from Walking Dead executive producers Robert Kirkman and Chris Black and is based on the Skybound/Image comic of the same name, follows Kyle Barnes (Almost Famous‘ Patrick Fugit), a young »

When Tod Campbell joined Mr. Robot as director of photography on its second episode, he had what Marlo Stanfield from The Wire might refer to as “one of them good problems” in deciding how to shoot it. Lead actor Rami Malek’s eyes were almost too gorgeous. “My God, Rami? I could put a light a hundred yards away and his eyes would pick it up,” says the veteran cinematographer of shows from Friday Night Lights to Sleepy Hollow. This ocular casting coup helped determine how Campbell came to shape the distinctive look of creator Sam Esmail’s twisty, anti-capitalist hacker drama, one of the summer’s standout shows (its finale airs on USA tonight). And you don’t need Malek-size eyes to see that Mr. Robot composes its shots like nothing else on television today. Fitting for a show about those occupying society’s technological substrata, Mr. Robot’s »

RelatedSupergirl Taps Salem Actor as DC Hero Red Tornado — But There’s a Twist
According to IGN, which first broke the news, General Lane is a “powerful military lifer and an overprotective father” to Lucy and Lois. Upon arriving in National City, he enlists Supergirl in a dangerous government initiative.
Gambit isn’t the most prominent character in the X-Men universe, but since his debut in 1990, he’s definitely become a firm fan favourite.
A thief hailing from New Orleans, the character’s a charmer with the ability to charge objects via telekinesis, thus rendering them explosive. That often includes using playing cards as projectiles, but he also exercises extreme proficiency in hand to hand combat. He’s the match of almost any other mutant out there.
Gambit made his big-screen bow in 2009’s X-Men: Origins Wolverine, portrayed by Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch. The actor received fair notices for his work, but the film itself was heavily derided, leading to a complete rethink from Fox regarding a potential spin-off adventure. Eventually, after campaigning for the part, Channing Tatum was cast as Kitsch’s replacement, but that’s not all there is to know about this iteration of the beloved mutant. »

Former "Friday Night Lights" actress Adrianne Palicki is set to star in a new Marvel series on ABC. The alphabet network has given a pilot order for "Marvel's Most Wanted," which will give two standout characters from "Agents of Shield" their own series. Palicki would star as her current Shield character, Bobbi Morse (Aka Mockingbird), a double agent whose loyalties are reserved for her own causes -- and whose fierceness has earned her the admiring nickname "Demonic Hell-Beast." The other "Shield" character to join her is Lace Hunter (played by Nick Blood), Bobbi's ex-husband. Unfortunately for Palicki fans, ABC isn't fast-tracking the series. Shooting isn't expected to start until at least early 2016. [via THR, Deadline]

Who's ready for some more Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki)? After months of back and forth, Variety reports that ABC is still interested in an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff starring the Friday Night Lights alum and her onscreen romantic interest Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). But instead of billing the new project as a S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, the network is calling it an entirely new pilot, centered around Bobbi Morse (Palicki) and Hunter. And the name for the potential show is already epic: Marvel's Most Wanted! While the site reports that ABC is close to a deal to order the new show, reps for the network and for Marvel could not confirm the news. If ABC does order the new show to »

The undead apocalypse is fresh and shiny and new — and still full of gnarly surprises — as seen in the opening minutes of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead.
RelatedTVLine’s First Impression of Fear the Walking Dead
Set in the same universe as the well-watched The Walking Dead, the offshoot (premiering this Sunday at 9/8c, with a 90-minute episode) promises “a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family in Los Angeles.”
Say this much for “The Park Bench”: It delivers on its title. Viewers get all the bench they can handle in writer-director Ann LeSchander’s exceedingly modest two-hander, but there’s a shortage of compelling conversation from its occupants. Though broken up by chapter titles, bits of animation and the occasional flashback, the vast majority of the action rides the pine, pairing a high-strung tutor with an earnest literature student for a flirty semester. Nicole Hayden and Walter Perez are winning in the lead roles, but LeSchander barely skims the surface of her book-smarts and his street-smarts, much less the cultural forces that keep them apart. A wisp of a romantic comedy at 78 minutes, the pic stands to come and go quickly from theaters, too, and its ancillary future seems limited to a showreel for its first-time filmmaker and stars.

Trust us: this look back at memorable Kyle Chandler moments will definitely have you missing Friday Night Lights. Although the 49-year-old actor won over plenty of fans with his hit role as Coach Taylor, Kyle's been in the Hollywood spotlight for more than two decades.

Of course, there have also been some supercute moments between Kyle and his TV wife, Connie Britton, plus some sexy smolders during big premiere nights. Keep reading for a look at some of Kyle's most studly moments through the years, then relive why you love Coach Taylor and find out which Friday Night Lights guy you should date! »
Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.
There are a few things of note going on in the top 10 this past weekend, first and foremost that Straight Outta Compton just made a ton of money. Like, nearly-twice-its-budget-just-domestically ton of money. It’s set the new domestic box office record for an R-Rated opening in August. That’s great for many reasons: a bright future for its young stars, F. Gary Gray is relevant again, and hopefully this will encourage more high-profile films about the rap and hip-hop community.
But looking down the list, something is amiss with the low receipts for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which means that’s two straight franchise starters that have bombed for star Armie Hammer. A very disconcerting question arises: Is Armie Hammer suffering from the Taylor Kitsch syndrome? »

American Horror Story superfan Austin Mahone apparently isn't that big of a superfan? The singer was on Watch What Happens Live alongside Connie Britton, she of Nashville, Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story and perfect hair fame. But Mahone didn't recognize Britton for her Emmy-nominated role in Ahs: Murder House. You know, the first season. You know, she was one of the main characters… "I got my tonsils out and I couldn't do anything for two weeks, so I saw American Horror Story on Netflix," Mahone explained. "I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to watch every season,' and I knocked three seasons out in three days…Yeah, I felt terrible." So maybe it was »
Matt LeBlanc says when both he and former high school buddy Louis C.K. were vying for lead comedy actor last year as Jim Parsons’ name was announced at the Emmy ceremony, they looked at each other and mouthed, “You suck!”
Perhaps this year, both C.K. and LeBlanc’s chances have increased since the incumbent is out of play.
“Not me. That’s the name that will be called,” says LeBlanc with a good-natured laugh. “I focus on my work and I’m proud of my show and the writers getting nominated, but it gets a little surreal every year getting nominated. We only have one more season, so maybe the last time’s the charm.”
Whoever takes the lead comedy actor trophy this year will be a first-time winner in the category since four-time winner Parsons was not nominated. So it could finally be the year for C.K. »

There’s little doubt that Jon Hamm is the sentimental favorite in the race. That he has never won the trophy for his nuanced portrayal of Don Draper in “Mad Men” seems an embarrassing historical oversight — even in the year of the acclaimed “Suitcase” episode, when “Friday Night Lights’” Kyle Chandler played the role of spoiler. Ironic, then, that Chandler’s been nominated again this year, Hamm’s last chance to finally claim what’s long eluded him. But the real threat to his legacy may come from Bob Odenkirk, who proved his dramatic chops as the lawyer struggling with his conscience in “Better Call Saul.”
Emmy voters love nothing more than making history, and Hamm may well ride the wave of nostalgia for “Mad Men” straight into the record books on the heels of his eighth nomination for the role. Witness last year’s coronation of “Breaking Bad, »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Look, being Superman isn't easy. Between the pressure to have a six pack and the pressure to, like, save lives all day, Henry Cavill has it rough. His dietary restrictions are intense to say the least, and he discussed them with fan-boy Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show," who literally uttered the phrase "your arm is the size of my leg."

Nix penned the script and will serve as exec producer along with Berg, who has been busy in TV recently as an exec producer and director of the pilot for HBO’s “Ballers” and “The Leftovers,” among other projects.
The untitled Fox pilot is a big action comedy set in the world of truck driving, which centers around a military vet-turned-truck driver. The project was brought to Fox through Berg’s Film 44 banner, which has a first-look deal there. 20th Century Fox TV is the studio.
“I’ve always admired Pete’s facility with comedy, drama, and action, so I thought it would make sense to do a comedy/drama/action show with him,” Nix told Variety.

E! News can officially confirm the happy couple is expecting their first child together!
