The first photo has gone online of former "Dexter" actor Devon Graye as the new, Axel Walker incarnation of The Trickster on The CW's "The Flash". The episode sees Mark Hamill returning to the role of James Jesse, the original terrorist and villain The Trickster from the 1990s "Flash" TV series.
Jesse is now in prison and the young Axel Walker character has taken up his old title and is committing new acts of destruction. As a result, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) seeks James Jesse's advice on how to take Walker down. The episode will be the seventeenth of the season and is slated to premiere on March 10th.

Devon Graye (who played the young Dexter in the Showtime series) will appear as the new version of The Trickster in an upcoming episode of the CW's The Flash, and here we have our first look at him in his supervillian duds. Mark Hamill will reprise the role of James Jesse -- the original Trickster from the '90s Flash series -- in the same ep; and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will apparently seek his advice on how to take Walker down. A photo posted by Pi (@punkd_images) on Jan 27, 2015 at 7:07pm Pst Here's a synopsis for the 13th episode, "Nuclear Man". (Note that this isn't the ep the Trickster will debut in).

The interconnectivity between Arrow and The Flash has been there since day one of the spin-off, which began with Grant Gustin fleetingly popping up in Starling City to introduce himself. Likewise, the first episode of The Flash featured an inspirational cameo from Stephen Amell, who was doling out advice, giving nicknames and saying the word ‘cool’ like nobody’s business.
Since then, Felicity hopped on a train to clear up some dangling romantic threads in episode four. Of course, we also had Flash Versus Arrow and The Brave And The Bold, our first full-on superheroes-teaming-up crossover.
Now, the next crossover moment has been confirmed, which will come in episode 18 of The Flash (air-date not quite confirmed). More like episode four than the bigger team-ups, we will be seeing Emily Bett Rickards »
Exciting news this, it’s been announced that the tenth Doctor himself, David Tennant, will be taking on the role of a key villain in Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones Netflix series. The news came yesterday from an official Marvel announcement, which confirmed Mr Tennant would be portraying ‘the villainous Kilgrave’ throughout the 13-episode series.
With this longer-form storytelling framework, we would expect more screentime for Tennant than his Doctor Who predecessor Christopher Eccleston got in Thor: The Dark World. He joins Krysten Ritter, who has already been confirmed as the title character Jessica Jones.
The announcement described Kilgrave as ‘an enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, [whose] reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.’ This plays nicely into the traditional Jessica Jones bio which paints her as a hero-turned-detective, »
Sleepy Hollow, Season 2, Episode 14, “Kali Yuga”
Story by Heather V. Regnier
Directed by Doug Aaronowski
Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox
It’s interesting that “Kali Yuga” is an episode that centers so heavily on Nick Hawley and Frank Irving, because those two characters are indicative of the attention deficit disorder Sleepy Hollow has with its supporting cast. Hawley, brought in to add roguish flair and romantic interest to the show, has since drifted to the point that even the showrunner admitted they threw out their original conception of the character. And Irving, after going from an implied villain in the pilot, has been shuffled from ally to asylum to afterlife so much that it’s become wearing when the show has to give him screen time. “Kali Yuga” tries hard to give both of these characters a bit of shading, but unfortunately »

Some actors struggle their entire career to land that one iconic or important role—the role that ultimately defines their career and marks their legacy. For John Lithgow, his 42-year career has been filled a number of notable parts, including prominent TV characters on 3rd Rock from the Sun and Dexter and two Oscar-nominated supporting roles in Terms of Endearment and The World According to Garp. But it’s Love Is Strange that the 69-year-old says is his best film role he’s ever had.
In what Lithgow describes as a modest indie film, Love Is Strange tells the story of Ben and George, an older, recently married gay couple forced to live apart after losing their New York apartment. The Ira Sachs-directed film, while not a box office hit, became a favorite among critics and even earned Lithgow his first Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Male Lead. The film also »

Chris Sparling turned heads in circles when his 2010 screenplay Buried was made into one of the most intense films in years. The Rodrigo Cortés-directed and Ryan Reynolds-led film brought the suspense in heavy doses and kept viewers completely on edge until its very end. Following that film, Sparling wrote another confined area film, 2012’s Atm. Not wanting to be know just as the go-to guy for confined area films, Sparling decided to write and direct The Atticus Institute (out on DVD/Bluray via Anchor Bay), a film, that like Buried, provides a lot of suspense, but in a way so unique that the faux-documentary elements of The Atticus Institute are very easy to forget, and Sparling’s knack for creating likable characters and making us Believe in them (a problem that a lot of similar films have is how we never forget that what we’re watching isn’t real).

Every time a new cast member signs up to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, fans speculate on whether they'll turn out to be a character we know from the Marvel Comics universe or not. You can't really blame them; after all Mike Peterson became Deathlok, "the Doctor" became Mister Hyde, and Skye turned out to be his daughter, Quake -- and that may just be the tip of the iceberg. We recently found out that fan-favourite actor Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, Dexter) is the latest addition to the cast, playing someone named Robert Gonzalez. Will he turn out to be an established Marvel character? Olmos didn't comment on that during his interview with Cbr but he definitely suggested there's a lot more to this mysterious fellow than we're currently aware. Apparently his casting came "out of the blue", but already being a big Marvel »
Comic book fans have been campaigning for Yvonne Strahovski to be cast as Captain Marvel since the character was still known as Ms. Marvel. The former Chuck star has since impressed in both Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, and may even star in her own Jack Bauer-less spinoff a couple of years from now. Will Marvel Studios listen to fan demand and cast her as Carol Danvers? We'll have to wait and see, but for now, enjoy these photos from GQ Magazine (via Movie Hotties) »
It’s a miracle that as horror fans, we haven’t seen everything under the sun by now. It’s rare for a film to come along that, while it might fall somewhat within a particular genre or subgenre, not only breathes new life into said subgenre, but does so in a way that you’re able to lose yourself within the film. It happens so rarely, that when it does, it comes as one hell of a pleasant shock. Truth be told, I walked into the Chris Sparling written and directed faux-documentary The Atticus Institute with low expectations. I had absolutely loved the Ryan Reynolds trapped in a box and buried underground film Buried, which Sparling had written, but I’ve just had my fill of Pov/Found Footage/etc kinds of films that as previously stated, I had low expectations. Well, fright fanatics, I’m not above admitting »

Ready to see what’s happening outside of the Atlanta area in the living dead landscape of AMC’s The Walking Dead? Robert Kirkman and company sure are, as the companion series is on the brink of rolling cameras on its newly assembled core cast. In a recent interview, Kirkman—the co-creator of the upcoming show and co-writer of the pilot—shed more light on the mysterious companion series.
Speaking with EW, Robert Kirkman touched on the identity of The Walking Dead companion series, explaining that family will be an important factor of the show, though it won’t be the type of family we’ve seen come together around Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead:
“I will say that this is going to be a show about family. But it’s going to be a show about a different type of family that we haven’t explored in The Walking Dead thus far. »

The actress will guest-star on the ABC drama as a woman who “develops an unhealthy obsession with a murder victim,” executive producer Matt Miller tells TVLine.
“It was an Nyu student who was taking a class in unusual psychology, and what happens is we go to talk to her teacher [and] realize the teacher was Hilarie Burton,” the Ep previews. “So Henry is »
Ready for more villain nicknames? You’d better be, because The Flash has plenty more a-coming…
The particle accelerator dark matter explosion thingy was a masterstroke in the creation of The Flash, meaning that there will never be a shortage of baddies for Barry to defeat, and Cisco to nickname. It’s like the storm from Misfits, but with a tad more explanation.
The latest to join the villainous ranks will be Devon Graye, who you might recognise from Dexter (he played the teenage version of Dexter himself). In The Flash, he will be portraying a copy-cat version of The Trickster, who will be played by Mark Hamill, who is reprising his role from the 1990s show.
Both appear in episode 17. Here’s a little trailer to refresh your memory of all those villains, and tease a few of the new ones…
More The Flash news as we hear it. »
Last month we received the exciting news that Mark Hamill would be reprising his role as The Trickster – which he played on the original Flash TV series in the 1990s – on The Flash later this season. However, he won’t be the only mischievous Rogue heading to Central City; Hamill’s version of the character is currently locked away in prison and is approached by Barry Allen for advice when a new copycat Trickster starts wreaking havoc.
Graye played teenage Dexter Morgan on the Showtime series, and will make the jump to The Flash in the show’s seventeenth episode. He’ll play Axel Walker, the second Trickster in the comics who took up the role when the original villain, James Jesse, went straight and began working with the FBI.

The former actor on Showtime’s “Dexter” will guest star as Axel, a.k.a. The Trickster, on Episode 17 of the Grant Gustin-helmed freshman superhero series. He’ll appear on the same episode as “Star Wars” veteran Mark Hamill, who was previously revealed to be playing an older version of The Trickster.

In this version of "The Flash", Hamill delivers a new take on that role with terrorist and con man James Jesse serving a life sentence in Iron Heights for his crimes as The Trickster years before hand.
It's then that a young wannabe Trickster named Axel Walker starts following in the original's deadly footsteps, and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) must seek the help of James Jesse to bring him down.
The episode will also reportedly see the onscreen reunion of Hamill with original "Flash" star John Wesley Shipp.

ComicBook.com reports that Devon Graye (who you will likely best know for his portrayal of a young Dexter in the Showtime series of the same name) has joined the cast of The Flash as Axel/Trickster, the young copycat of Mark Hamill's James Jesse, who was also known as The Trickster both in the Flash's '90s TV series and in The CW series' continuity.

Addressing criticism of Homeland‘s Season 4 finale, Showtime president David Nevins acknowledged that there was discussion about extending the final climax across the last two episodes, but it was decided to go a different way and wrap things up quietly in D.C.
Nevins also weighed in on recent complaints about Pakistan’s “grimy” portrayal on Homeland, opining that the flak won’t spook producers as they shape Season 5.
Reflecting on the finale, Nevins said, “I will be honest: I was a big advocate of going back to D.C…. I knew that the action climax was in Episode 11, but »
