It's one thing to play a member of the Dar, but to realize you could actually Be a member of the Dar?
Surely that means the role was meant to be.
Just ahead of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life's premiere, we talked with Carolyn Hennesy about her role as Toni, the head of the local chapter of the Dar, who helps Emily confront what it is that she really wants out of life.
Hennesy is no stranger to playing wealthy women with questionable intentions, and with experience from Revenge, True Blood, General Hospital, and Once Upon a Time, sipping tea with Emily Gilmore came quite naturally to her.
TV Fanatic: What can you tell us about your role in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life?
Carolyn Hennesy: Well, my character's name is Toni, and I'm just head of the local chapter of the Dar, the Daughters of the American Revolution. »

Star Trek: Voyager does not share the good reputation of its predecessors The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, with some fans disappointed that the inherent conflict between Starfleet and Maquis characters was not explored further, others perhaps put off by the really rather dull and occasionally ridiculous second season. However, Voyager was as capable as any other Star Trek series of producing memorable stories and excellent performances, and for those of us for whom it is our favourite branch of the Star Trek franchise (yes, we do exist) it is worth celebrating some of the things it did really well – in this case, the actors and actresses who came to join the show for guest performances.
HBO will start telling Big Little Lies just after Valentine’s Day.
The premium cabler’s adaptation of Liane Moriarity’s darkly comedic novel will premiere Sunday, Feb. 19 at 9/8c, HBO confirmed Monday.
David E. Kelley penned the seven-episode limited series about three mothers — played by Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge), Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) and Shailene Woodley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) — whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.
In the “rebooted” fourth season (premiering Friday, Jan. 6 at 9/8c), Ichabod (played by Tom Mison) will find himself relocated to Washington, D.C., where he will work with Homeland Security agent Diana (True Blood‘s Janina Gavankar) and a small team of researchers.

Notable for employing a choose-your-own adventure style split-screen structure, Christopher Smith's Detour takes its audience on a multi-streamed thrill ride full of hairpin turns, where it’s never quite clear what or who can be trusted. Tye Sheridan leads the neo-noir along with Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and Bel Powely (Equals) and Emory Cohen (Brooklyn). Smith is responsible for some of the very best genre out of the UK including Severance and the equally mind-bending Triangle. Synopsis: Harper, a seemingly naive law student, obsesses over the idea that his shifty stepfather was involved in the devastating car crash that left his mother hospitalized and comatose. He drowns his suspicions in whiskey until he finds himself suddenly engrossed in conversation with volatile grifter Johnny and his stripper companion, Cherry....

Start stockpiling Pop-Tarts and get that bottomless pot of coffee brewing: We're just days away from the premiere of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Netflix's revival of the beloved early-2000's dramedy. (The streaming service is dropping all four episodes on November 25th.) The original series introduced us to the fast-talking, java-addicted Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), her 16-year-old brainiac daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel), and a colorful cast of characters in the fictional Connecticut hamlet of Stars Hollow.
All things considered, the CW show could have been a forgettable mess, »
The smurftastic first trailer for the new Smurf movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village, has arrived!
This fully animated reboot features an all-star cast of voice actors, including Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Rainn Wilson as Gargamel, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf and Mandy Patinkin as the one and only Papa Smurf.
“It’s great to be part of such an iconic franchise that I was a fan of as a kid,” Manganiello, 39, tells People. “The animation is based off the original artwork, so this is really a throw back to what we grew up with.”
The film follows Lovato’s Smurfette, »
Despite the perceived problems facing the DC Extended Universe at this point, one thing these movies have not had an issue with is casting. They've hauled in big names like Will Smith, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and the list goes on. It looks like that very impressive list might be getting longer, as comedy legend John Cleese just might be joining up with the Dceu starting with Justice League.
Don't get your hopes up quite yet, but there is some, and we do mean only some, evidence that the Monty Python actor is circling a DC movie for Warner Bros. As Twitter user Dennis Lamb pointed out, both the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice account, and DC Photographer Clay Enos both followed John Cleese recently. That may not seem like much on paper, but it is more of an indicator than you may think.
When American Horror Story: Roanoke first started, few could have predicted how it would all end, or who would still be standing when we got to the finale. We assumed we'd see more of the couple who gave up their life savings to buy the house, or of the actors who played them in the reenactment. In the end, however, it was the the cop sister, who survived nearly to the end of all ten episodes thanks to the fact that she was willing to do anything to protect her daughter, and also partly thanks to that heart she ate. Adina Porter, who many TV fans will know from True Blood, The Newsroom, and The 100, played Lee, sister of Matt (Andre Holland), and sister-in-law of Shelby (Lily Rabe). She spent most of the first »

The Six Feet Under and True Blood boss’ untitled series focuses on the contemporary multi-racial Black-Bishop family: a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife (Hunter), their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child.

“I'm a working actor and I'm really appreciative to be a working actor, but it's another level when you're a working actor with the likes of Sarah Paulson and Angela Bassett. I knew, ‘Ok, I have to bring my A-game because this is how these people operate -- especially Miss Paulson,’” Adina Porter tells Et by phone as she waits to board a flight back to Los Angeles from Vancouver, where she’s currently filming the CW’s The 100. The actress, who is probably most famous for playing Lettie Mae Thornton on HBO’s True Blood, is the breakout star of this season of American Horror Story opposite Bassett, Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr.
While dubbed a newcomer to American Horror Story, Porter’s initial introduction to Ryan Murphy’s anthology series came playing Sally Freeman, a patient of psychiatrist Ben Harmon’s (Dylan McDermott) on season one—a character referred to in the script as “the »

This Is Us returned with a doozy of an episode that transported us back to the ‘90s, revealing why certain members of the Pearson family drifted apart and how some fractures can never be mended.
It was established early in the series that Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) were the quintessential couple in love, welcoming “The Big Three” into their lives with open arms. But as Tuesday’s episode explored the couple’s dog days of marriage, their romantic spark seemingly dissipating by the day.
