Emmys 2016: Who Should Win Best Lead Actor in a Drama? Take Our Poll!

27 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Will a Soviet Kgb officer or a vigilante computer hacker walk away with Emmy gold?

One thing’s for sure: A win in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for either The Americans‘ Matthew Rhys or Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek — both first-time nominees — would not be considered an upset.

In fact, with Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels out of the running, this particular Emmy race is wide open.

Watch the Trailer For The Ring's New Sequel at Your Own Peril

24 August 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Ring scared the stuffing out of America when it was released in 2002, and 14 years later (and 11 years after the first sequel), a new film is being released. Rings stars a bunch of people you know from TV: Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights), Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), Zach Roerig (The Vampire Diaries), Laura Wiggins (The Tomorrow People), and Lizzie Brocheré (American Horror Story: Asylum). The trailer itself doesn't give a ton away about the plot, but guess what? A video is still killing people. Watch at your own risk; you'll definitely hear someone whispering "Seven Days" for the next two hours. Rings hits theaters on Oct. 28!

Deadpool 2 Wants Kyle Chandler and Mackenzie Davis as Cable and Domino?

13 August 2016 2:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's a long line of older action icons who've been clamoring to take on the Cable role in Deadpool 2. But it sounds like 20th Century Fox may be going in a very different direction. A new rumor claims that Bloodline and Friday Night Lights actor Kyle Chandler is wanted for the time traveling Mutant. And he's by far the youngest actor to throw his hat into the ring.

The news comes courtesy of Meet the Movie Press. And they also have a pretty good idea about who might play Cable's love interest, Domino. According to the show, director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds are eyeing Mackenzie Davis for the role. She is perhaps best known for her AMC drama Halt and Catch Fire. She was also seen in the genre mash-up comedy thriller Freaks of Nature, and has a role in Blade Runner 2.

Rumour: Kyle Chandler being eyed to play Cable in Deadpool 2

13 August 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Deadpool shared the news at the end of his debut superhero outing that the film’s sequel would feature the supervillain Cable, speculation has been rampant on which actor will play the telepathic mutant. Although such actors as Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman have thrown their hats in the ring and done a bit of campaigning for the part, today, thanks to Jeff Sneider we have our first legitimate candidate for the role.

While speaking to Forbes writer Simon Thompson on Popcorn Talk’s Meet the Movie Press, Sneider revealed that Friday Night Lights and Super 8 actor Kyle Chandler was being eyed for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Sneider made it clear to those listening to take the report with a grain of salt, as it certainly hasn’t been confirmed by the studio, but he did mention that the actor’s name has been floating around for months. »

Emmy-Nominated Lead Actors Balance Humor and Tragedy

12 August 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After three seasons of using his fists, scowls, or libido to express his feelings, Liev Schreiber’s Ray Donovan found another way to show his guilt and torment in the third season finale of the eponymous Showtime series: Confessing to a priest about all the crimes he’s seen and done, this brute broke down in tears.

“Those are the scenes that actually feel cathartic,” Schreiber says. “The hardest thing to do with a character is to ramp up tension and not express it, because it’s a very subtle thing to do. It also involves creating an emotional energy inside yourself that you don’t release that’s been sat on and repressed and gets held. I think that’s the stuff that’s bad for you, mentally. That confession scene; I’m really grateful to David [Hollander, the series’ showrunner and episode’s director] and Leland [Orser, who played Father Romero] and the crew for creating the environment for Ray to get something off his chest, both »

The Flash Season 3: Grey Damon Cast as Mirror Master

11 August 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Another famous Rogue villain is making his way to The Flash Season 3.

If you thought the best Rogues had already come and gone, you were wrong! 

Grey Damon will become Sam Scudder aka Mirror Master for The Flash Season 3 Episode 4. Does that mean he'll be a one and done character? 

We'll have to wait and watch the show to find out whether Mirror Master will be in more than one installment, but even more interesting is whether or not he'll be fighting The Flash or Kid Flash. 

We don't know yet how long it will take to set the wrongs of Flashpoint right...or even if that means we won't still have two flashes fighting the forces of evil on the streets of Central City afterward anyway!

Sam Scudder is a pretty well known guy in the DC canon. Real comic book fans were surprised he was left behind during the initial two seasons. »

TV: The Flash: Season 3 Casts Mirror Master

10 August 2016 8:38 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Grey Damon, known for starring in Friday Night Lights, has been cast as Sam Scudder aka Mirror Master, in Season 3 of The Flash.  

Mirror Master was created in 1959's Flash #105 by John Broome, and had gone on to be one of the major villains in the rogues gallery.  In the comics, Mirror Master has the ability to travel through mirrors, trap others in them, and other various powers revolving around mirrors.  The series seems to be staying extremely close to the source material according to the description from Wbtv:

"One of the Flash's most infamous Rogues, Sam Scudder--aka Mirror Master--is a smooth criminal with a huge ego.  Upon discovering he now has the power to travel through any reflective surface, Scudder embarks on a massive crime spree to prove himself the greatest thief that Central City has ever seen."

The CW’s small-screen take on DC’s The Flash has already utilized several members of the Scarlet Speedster’s infamous ‘Rogues Gallery’ over the course of its first 2 seasons (Captain Cold, Pied Piper, Trickster etc.), but one of Barry Allen’s most prominent supervillains never got a look in. Well, fans can now rest easy, as Mirror Master will make his debut during the show’s third season.
