When Candace Cameron Bure appeared alongside former Full House flame Scott Weinger on the finale of ABC’s overlooked sitcom The Neighbors (for which Weinger was a writer), it may have been prophetic. Almost exactly a year later, John Stamos announced to the world that Full House was being spun off into the Netflix series Fuller House, focusing on Bure’s grown-up D.J. Tanner as a pregnant widow with two kids who gets by with the help of Bff Kimmy (Andrea Barber) and sister Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin). Bure, who took a sabbatical from acting in the early 2000s to raise her own children, has kept anything but a low profile over the ensuing months. In early July, she brought bipartisan controversy back to The View. A few weeks later, she starred in the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel’s adaptation of True Blood author Charlaine Harris’s Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery. »

Riding the coattails of various, mostly smallscreen medieval-combat chronicles, the English-language multinational production “Northmen: A Viking Saga” brings straightforward vigor to an uninventive but diverting tale of Norse warriors shipwrecked on hostile shores. There are no novel slants or plot twists in the script (by Austrian screen/genre-fiction writing duo Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer) to render this bloody ninth-century adventure truly memorable. But helmer Claudio Fah’s pacey handling, a creditable if not especially starry cast (duly recruited mostly from hit cable skeins), and handsome locations (South Africa primarily filling in for Scotland) make it a respectable B-actioner. Having rolled out in various territories since October 2014, it opens July 31 at Arena Cinema in Los Angeles. U.S. theatrical prospects will be modest, improved upon by Aug. 11 VOD launch and subsequent distribution to other home formats.

Every serial killer needs someone to love. In Hannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter has Will Graham, so it's only fitting that the new sociopath on the block, Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage), better known as the "Tooth Fairy," find somebody too. Readers of Thomas Harris's Red Dragon will remember Reba McClane, the blind woman who mollifies the Tooth Fairy's murderous urges. True Blood's Rutina Wesley plays the woman who falls for the psychopath. This exclusive clip from the upcoming episode shows the two lovebirds meeting for the first time. »

The night before I meet Alexander Skarsgard, he’s guest of honour at the premiere of his new movie, Diary of a Teenage Girl, at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. “I can’t hardly believe it,” says the quivering festival programmer, as ripples of excitement run through the female (and some male) members of the audience. Put this largely down to True Blood, the TV show that shot the Swedish-born Skarsgard to fame as the super-buff 1,000-year-old vampire Eric Northman. »
The ABC’s six-part series aims for complex characterisation but gives us cookie-cutter corpses – these stiffs are drop-dead boring
I’m your typical Aussie couch potato. My plate is full with a nine-to-five square-meal day job, followed by a seven-to-twelve TV binge session. Needless to say, my existence is mostly ordinary.
Yet American Horror Story’s washed-up, fame-hungry amputee who runs a freak show in Jupiter, Florida is someone I can relate to. As is True Blood’s feisty teen vampire struggling to abstain from draining her mortal boyfriend’s veins. Not to mention the mobster devoted to “waste management” in The Sopranos, Orange is the New Black’s lesbian drug mule and Mad Men’s alcoholic creative director crackerjack raised in a whorehouse who goes on to steal his dead army buddy’s identity.

The duo will play rivals, with Martini in the role of Josiah Hedges, better known as Edge, who goes on a bloody mission of vengeance when his younger brother is killed by a group of his former Union army comrades, lead by his nemesis, Merritt Harknett (played by Kwanten). Edge is described as fearless, intimidating and “the meanest-looking man in any room he chooses to enter.”
Kwanten’s character is the son of a prominent senator who can seem charming until he is revealed for who he actually is — a psychotic sadist who delights in inflicting pain on others. He is pursuing Edge for an undisclosed reason.

Alexander Skarsgård just got even more perfect! In a new interview with the London Evening Standard, the smoking hot True Blood star makes an impressive feminist statement about gender inequality in the entertainment industry. "Sexism is a big problem in Hollywood," the sexy 38-year-old actor said. "Boys can talk about sex and have sex in films and it's cool but when girls do it they are just sluts. It's so prudish and puritanical. Hollywood is difficult for women—people making films want super-hot, young girls, and then there are fewer great roles for women aged over 40." Well said, Alex! Meanwhile, Skarsgård stayed coy about his girlfriend Alexa Chung but »
