Heroes Reborn is continuing to add to its already large cast before the series premieres this fall, and the revival’s newest additions include two familiar faces and one very well-known name. Per Deadline and The Wrap, The Mentalist‘s Pruitt Taylor Vince, The 100‘s Eve Harlow, and Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Clint Eastwood—she’s been in a few films and guest starred on an episode of Perception last year) have all joined Heroes Reborn. The Wrap reports that details on Harlow’s character are being kept under wraps, and while not much is known about Vince or Eastwood’s roles either (although it has been confirmed that they will both be recurring), Deadline states that Vince will be playing an “unassuming but persuasive guy,” with Eastwood’s alter ego being a “manipulative young woman.” Vince, Harlow, and Eastwood join a Heroes Reborn cast that is already filled with many new faces, »

Brewster, as first reported by EW.com, will play Denise Brown, the sister of Simpsons’ wife — and the victim in question — Nicole Brown, a role still to be cast.
Jaime Pressly and Mimi Kennedy have both had good "Mom" news since I talked with them on the set of the CBS comedy in March. At the time, Pressly was still a "Mom" guest star, but the "My Name Is Earl" Emmy winner seemed very open to getting to be a regular part of the action. In March, it was announced that Pressly will, indeed, be a regular next season, continuing to chart the journey of wealthy divorcee Jill, who has made several trips to rehab this year. And at the time, Kennedy was unsure what was happening with Marjorie's cancer, an important Season 1 plotline that was ignored for the first chunk of Season 2. In recent episodes, it was finally been revealed that Marjorie has been continuing with treatment and that she's now cancer-free. I held my interviews with Pressly and Kennedy a little long and so there were large »

NBC’s Heroes Reborn event series, now slated for a fall premiere, has added three more to its cast.
As reported by our sister site Deadline, The Mentalist alum Pruitt Taylor Vince and onetime Perception guest star Francesca “Daughter of Clint” Eastwood have boarded the project as an unassuming but persuasive guy and a manipulative young woman (respectively).
Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.
Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.
From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others? History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies? So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

This week, production began on the highly anticipated upcoming Starz series, Ash vs Evil Dead, which has creators Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell reuniting, this time in New Zealand, to bring fans a new iteration of everyone’s favorite chainsaw-wielding anti-hero.
Daily Dead had the opportunity to take part in a very special conference call with the trio about what we can expect from the first 10-episode season (and beyond), how Ash vs Evil Dead will fit into the overall Evil Dead universe, input into some of the new characters we’ll be meeting along the way and much, much more.
Ash vs Evil Dead will definitely be hardline horror but expect some quintessential Evil Dead comedy to show up from time to time: According to Raimi, Ash vs Evil Dead is definitely going to be an intense horror experience but when you’re working with someone like »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).
Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

“Astronaut Wives Club” is finally ready to blast off at ABC, with the network announcing on Monday a summer premiere date for the new drama.
Originally scheduled to bow last summer and then pushed to spring for retooling and some cast changes, “Astronaut Wives Club” will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. starting June 18. That launch date will allow the network to promote the series during coverage of the NBA Finals, which will occupy Thursdays earlier in the month.
ABC had announced its summer schedule earlier this month, but there was no mention of “Astronaut Wives Club” at that time.
Based on the book by Lily Koppel, “Astronaut Wives Club” focuses on seven women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history. As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed, seemingly overnight, from military spouses to American royalty. »

Zachary Levi is getting back in touch with his nerdy side. The former star of NBC’s Chuck, who will be seen in the network’s Heroes revival, Heroes Reborn, when it premieres this fall, is taking on hosting duties for a new game show from Syfy called Geeks Who Drink. Syfy announced today that Levi will serve as an executive producer and host of the show, which is based on the nationwide pub trivia phenomenon. Geeks Who Drink‘s description makes thing sound pretty simple (but also really fun), as each week, two teams of three “trivia geeks” will answer questions from a bevy of different categories, which will range from science fiction to pop culture. Plus, as an extra bonus, each team will be led by a celebrity captain. “To be the executive producer and host of Geeks Who Drink is an exciting opportunity to broaden my experience »

Levi, a self-proclaimed nerd himself, will produce through his own production banner, the Nerd Machine.
