As if screening John Wick at this year’s Fantastic Feast and interviewing Keanu Reeves (faints) wasn’t enough, actress Adrianne Palicki was also present to do some interviews in support of the badass action film. While many of you know her as Tyra Collette from the Friday Night Lights television series, comic book aficionados may now know her as Mockingbird from Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, marking her introduction into the Marvel cinematic universe. While I’m sure that fruitful path will open many, many doors, her participation in John Wick is like a nice warm-up for the action sequences that are going to follow while she wears the Mockingbird costume.
Starring opposite Keanue Reeves, Palicki is a sarcastic rivaling agent who knows how to kick some serious ass – and look good doing so. I sat down with the actress to talk about the rigorous physical »

AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner! Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits. He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year. Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under. However, he did just »

Fifteen years after “The Blair Witch Project,” co-director Eduardo Sanchez makes a lackluster return to found-footage horror with the Bigfoot thriller “Exists.” Eschewing the painfully slow-burning suspense and pseudo-realism that helped make “Blair Witch” a sleeper smash and genre touchstone, Sanchez’s thoroughly conventional approach here does little to elevate a dismally generic script from frequent collaborator Jamie Nash. Although “Exists” somehow managed to land an audience award at this year’s SXSW fest, the day-and-date VOD and limited theatrical release will look more at home as filler on basic-cable genre channels.
It would be a stretch to call any of the walking targets in “Exists” a proper character, but YouTube-obsessed Brian (Chris Osborn) nearly fits the bill. Never without a piece of recording equipment on hand or strapped to his body, the insufferable dudebro embarks on a trek into the East Texas woods with sibling Matt (Samuel Davis); Matt’s girlfriend, »

If you’re a Friday Night Lights fan, it’s time to get excited. Coach Taylor is returning to television (well, technically Netflix but still).

The series, which takes place in the Florida Keys, focuses on a very close but also very secretive family that must deal with their hidden lies being revealed when their “black sheep” brother comes back into their lives. In addition to Chandler, the cast of Bloodline features many familiar names and faces, »

If you're a fan of Friday Night Lights, you might be pleased to hear that Kyle Chandler is starring in a new series for Netflix, called Bloodline. However, this series doesn't look like it's going to have much else in common with the beloved football series. The first teaser is here, and it shows a boat on fire, with Chandler's voice saying, "We're not bad people, but we did a bad thing." Man, how I missed that twang! The show is set in the Florida Keys and centers on four adult siblings whose lives get shaken up when their black-sheep brother returns home. All 13 episodes of Bloodline will be available in March, so block off that whole month. »
Netflix has released its first teaser clip for Bloodline, the latest original drama to be commissioned by the streaming site. The 13-part series tells the story of a black sheep brother returning home to the Florida Keys, where, naturally, he begins to tear the family apart. It would have been nicer if hed brought souvenir biscuits from the airport, of course, but potentially less dramatic.

The Friday Night Lights alum adopts the Marvel-ous attire (and loses Bobbi’s brunette undercover op locks) in the Oct. 28 episode, “A Fractured House,” in which the world turns against S.H.I.E.L.D. (even more?) when Hydra impersonates them to attack the United Nations.
What do you think of the ABC series’ update of Mockingbird’s attire? Flip through the slideshow below to see Bobbi in action, »
Former "Friday Night Lights" star Adrianne Palicki has had multiple brushes with superhero fame -- she appeared in that weird "Aquaman" pilot thing, and played Wonder Woman herself in the David E. Kelley pilot a few years back. Now, Palicki is ready to show off her latest alter ego on "Marvel's Agents of Shield," where her character Bobbi Morse has been revealed as the secret identity of super spy Mockingbird. New photos have appeared over at Marvel.com which show off Palicki's new hi-tech espionage duds. It may look different from the comic book versions, but costume designer Ann Foley had her reasons for changing the template. See Bobbi Morse in her full tactical suit in action in next week's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," airing Tuesday, October 28 at 9:00 p.m. Et on ABC. But that's not all. Next week's episode of "Agents of Shield" will also include a teaser »

Adrianne Palicki is no stranger to superheroes, but has she ever looked this badass in a comic-inspired costume before? The Friday Night Lights veteran played Wonder Woman in NBC's 2011 ill-fated pilot about the iconic DC Comics character, but the project never made it to series despite plenty of headlines over the costume with its strange-looking pants. Now Palicki is playing a new breed of a hero, a S.H.I.E.L.D. spy, on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and she's got the appropriate new duds to go with the kick-butt role of Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird. Still, Palicki looks back at her time as Wonder Woman fondly. Although we can't help but think she kind of lucked out…at least where superhero »
A review of tonight's "Marvel's Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I maintain my cover as Ron Burgundy... Operation: Improve "Agents of Shield" has been working in two fronts this season. The main, and most important one, has been creating more interesting contexts for the pre-existing characters like Coulson, Fitz and Ward. At the same time, the show is introducing a lot of new characters on both the Shield and Hydra side of things. Some are still fairly minor in the scheme of things — Mac's primary function this week is to let Fitz subconsciously ogle his superhuman physique — but on the whole, the show has nicely balanced new and old, so that the show feels densely populated, but not too busy. It helps when you have some excellent actors like Kyle MacLachlan and Adrianne Palicki involved. Palicki's long been a superheroine-in-waiting — one of the worst things about »

“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 »

“Full Circle” has a pretty full cast for its upcoming second season. The DirecTV anthology series has added a slew of actors for its sophomore run, including Stacy Keach, “Lost” alum Terry O'Quinn, Brittany Snow (“Pitch Perfect”), “Ally McBeal” veteran Calista Flockhart, Patrick Fugit (“Almost Famous”), David Koechner and “Perception” actor Eric McCormack.

"Kingdom" will continue to reign on Directv. Just a week after the series premiere, the platform has ordered an additional 20 episodes of the one-hour drama from creator Byron Balasco ("Detroit 1-8-7") and Endemol Studios ("Hell on Wheels"). Production will begin in spring 2015, with the first 10 episodes airing on the Audience Network next fall. The following 10 episodes will air sometime in 2016. Starring Nick Jonas and Frank Grillo ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), "Kingdom" is a brutal family saga that takes place in the rough and tumble world of Mixed Martial Arts in Venice, California.

Coming off her recent performance in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, actress Kim Dickens will be joining the third season of the Netflix series House of Cards. Currently there isn’t a lot of details about what her role in the series will be, but considering her extensive television work there’s no doubt that she’ll fit right in with the likes of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
Besides her role in Gone Girl, Dickens has most recently appeared in episodes of Sons of Anarchy as well as a star on the HBO series Treme. She also starred in another HBO series, Deadwood, and has made appearances on Friday Night Lights and Lost.
Season 3 of House of Cards is set to return in February. The series is coming off of 13 Emmy nominations for it’s second season which is four more than it got for its debut season. Cards »

Netflix’s House of Cards is beginning to beef up its Season 3 lineup. The political drama has cast actress Kim Dickens in a recurring role for Season 3, which will premiere on Netflix sometime in early 2015 (I’m going to guess February, since that’s when the past two seasons of House of Cards have debuted). As of right now, no specific details about Dickens’ role in House of Cards, or the number of episodes of Season 3 she will appear in, have been released. Since playing Joanie Stubbs, a series regular role on HBO’s Deadwood, Dickens has appeared on countless other TV series, including Lost, Friday Night Lights, and White Collar. Most recently, she starred in the David Simon series Treme on HBO and also had a recurring role on FX’s Sons of Anarchy as Colette, a madam at one of the brothels that the Sons help run who »
