Taylor Kitsch Kept Tim Riggins' Football Jerseys From Friday Night Lights, Reveals Panther Buddies He Keeps In Touch With

9 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Tim Riggins, how we miss thee and those luscious dirty blonde locks! Friday Night Lights premiered eight years ago this month, and because we were feeling sentimental, Us Weekly sidelined with Taylor Kitsch at the GQ x Lacoste Sport Pop Up event in NYC on Thursday, Oct. 23, to discuss the fan-favorite sports drama (a.k.a. the best show of all time!). Reunion buzz often follows the NBC cast, but Kitsch, 33, continues to stick with the notion that a film would just ruin how Coach Taylor and [...] »

Matt Lauria knows how to play rough. Despite being one of the nicer people in Hollywood, the actor has a history of portraying dark characters haunted by their pasts. On Directv’s new drama Kingdom, Lauria plays Mma fighter Ryan Wheeler, whose personal mantra “Destroyer” (tattooed in large letters across his chest) represents his approach to his life both in and out of the cage.

Those familiar with his work on Jason Katims series Friday Night Lights and Parenthood will see shades of his Parenthood character Ryan York, only this time the stakes are much higher. After serving four years in prison, Wheeler is trying to rebuild his life with very few people who will go to bat for him — save for his former mentor who is now dating his ex-fiance. This may sound like the same soapy love triangle synopsis of many a modern drama, but »

Even taking this year off was, I mean you want to work, but you also don’t want to just water it down and work for the sake of working. So, it was tough to sit a year out, keeping a finger crossed »

Terrence Howard Has An Empire To Protect In Trailer For Fox’s Midseason Hip-Hop Drama

27 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s fall lineup, Gotham aside, has delivered a whole slew of disappointments, with heavily promoted reality series Utopia landing softly and new series like Gracepoint, Mulaney and Red Band Society proving dead on arrival. However, maybe midseason hip-hop drama Empire will turn things around for the network.

Featuring a star-studded cast led by Terrence HowardTaraji P. Henson, Gabourey Sidibe and Courtney Love, the show is looking increasingly like a potential hit. Like ABC’s Nashville, which is currently in its third season, Empire aims to blend the soapy, scandalous drama of Dynasty (which show creator Lee Daniels, of The Butler and Precious fame, has cited as an inspiration) with toe-tapping music. And judging by the first trailer, which you can check out below, the series has been wholly successful in that endeavor.

Exclusive Video Interview With Adrianne Palicki On John Wick

25 October 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

Adam Davidson to Direct the Pilot Episode of The Walking Dead Spin-Off Series

24 October 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 »

Film Review: ‘Exists’

23 October 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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, »

Adrianne Palicki revealed as Mockingbird in new 'Agents of Shield' pics

22 October 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »
