Vikings season 3 episode 1 review: Mercenary

19 February 2015 9:20 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With a bigger budget, The History Channel's Vikings improves upon the strengths of its first two seasons in this season 3 premiere...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 Mercenary

Two years ago, when I first tuned in to watch Vikings, I honestly wasn’t expecting much, despite my interest in the period and culture it depicts. After all, the show was ostensibly historical material being produced for The History Channel, a cable outlet that hasn’t done much lately in the way of history. I mean, Swamp People and Pawn Stars may bring in the ratings and thus the advertisers, but I doubt they’ll end up in many chronicles of our times.

What I did not know when I sat down to watch the premiere episode was the show’s pedigree. It was created by Michael Hirst who also gave us The Tudors. As someone well-versed in the Renaissance, I had »

Interview: 'Vikings' creator Michael Hirst teases Season 3's prophecies, romance

17 February 2015 9:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

History's "Vikings" returns on Thursday (February 19) night for the start of what looks to be its most ambitious season to date.  When we left Travis Fimmel's Ragnar last season, he'd completed his ascension to king, but he still had lots of unfinished business, particularly Across the Pond with Linus Roache's King Ecbert.  Season 3 finds Ragnar and friends holding things down at home, expanding their reach in England and, as series creator Michael Hirst has long teased, eying a raid on Paris. Hirst is always one of my favorite interview subjects, but I tend to only get through a third of my questions when I get 15 or 20 minutes on the phone with the erudite Englishman, so I made sure to get a solid half-hour-plus when we sat down last month during the Television Critics Association press tour.  In the wide-ranging conversation, we discuss Ragnar's unease ruling position, the prophecy »

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Set For Spy Thriller Damascus Cover

3 February 2015 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the 65th Berlin Film festival primed to kick off later this week, we can readily expect studio execs to offer up their movies in a bid to secure those all-important distribution rights. And of those attendees is Daniel Zelik Berk’s Damascus Cover, which recently tapped The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers for the lead role.

Based on Howard Kaplan’s eponymous novel, the film will tell the true-life tale of a veteran spy (Rhys Meyers) who infiltrates a dangerous area in Syria in order to smuggle a chemical weapons scientist and his family out of the country. However, not all is what it seems after our protagonist partner is Awol before the mission can even begin, leaving Rhys Meyer’s character stranded and, in what is perhaps the movie’s most interesting sub-plot, caught in the midst of a possible conspiracy theory.

Digital Spy's rising stars for 2015: Joe Cole, Karla Crome and more

9 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Who are the stars of tomorrow in TV, film and theatre?

Digital Spy presents its predictions for 2015 - in no particular order, here are seven young actors, writers, comedians and musicians who look destined to make an impression on the world of entertainment this year.

1. Billy Howle

After graduating from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2013, Billy Howle quickly landed television work in Channel 4's New Worlds and on ITV's Vera.

But the young actor first came to our attention last year with his powerful performance as the troubled James in sorely underrated countryside thriller Glue.

Next up for the talented Howle is a plum role in BBC One's adaptation of Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie, which is due to be broadcast later in 2015.

2. Hannah Britland

A graduate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Hannah Britland launched her television acting career with early roles in Misfits and Skins. »

Sleepy Hollow Ep Previews Abbie's 'Inspirational,' Angelic Encounter

2 January 2015 9:54 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Moloch is dead and an angel is about to wing into town: As the Sleepy Hollow midseason premiere approaches (Fox, Monday 9/8c), it sure looks like Abbie and Ichabod’s luck is improving.

“Right off the bat, we jump in with this story of this avenging angel,” showrunner and executive producer Mark Goffman tells TVLine. As it happens, the heavenly visitor is a hunk — played by Max Brown (Beauty and the Beast, The Tudors) — who may be able to help the Witnesses as they try to figure out their purpose, post-Horrid King.

Goffman says Abbie, in particular, finds the winged one quite appealing… »
