Emotionally, "Fast Enough" was a terrific conclusion to this first season of "The Flash." It hit on all the key character arcs, including Barry trying to honor and protect both of his fathers, Wells insisting that he was still a father figure to Barry as well, Cisco's hatred of his former mentor, Eddie making a stand for Iris, and even Caitlin and Ronnie getting married. (That last one was a bit on the rushed side, but that's what happens when you have such a busy show and Ronnie was absent for so long.) And Barry declining to save his mother because his future self told him not to was a nice touch. He spends the whole hour seeking advice from Joe, from Henry, from Iris, »

They may be best known today for their later roles, but these six stars all got their first break by playing super heroes on TV. Maybe these shows aren’t the most memorable or well-made super hero projects, and they aren’t the highlight of the actor’s career, but these little shows jump-started the careers of some future celebrities.
Started out as—Kato, the Kung-Fu fighting sidekick to the Green Hornet in the TV series The Green Hornet (1966).
After that—Lee had a recurring role in the detective series Longstreet before returning to Hong Kong to star in a highly successful trio of films; The Big Boss (1971); the Chinese Connection (1972) and the Way of the Dragon (1972). His first and only Hollywood film was Enter the Dragon (1973). Lee died young and his legend has grown ever since. He is considered by many as the greatest martial arts star in the history of film. »

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…
Skarsten plays Andrea, Grey’s personal assistant, in the movie based on the salacious, best-selling novel about submission, domination and kinky sex. With perfect posture, a grey power suit and a platinum-blond bun Andrea looks pretty sexy to us, but Skarsten — who was born and bred in Toronto and now lives in L.A. — says she’s anything but.
“She’s an interesting role in the book and movie because she’s completely unsexualized,” says Skarsten. “That provided me with a unique opportunity in Hollywood to play a woman in such a sexual film who derives absolutely none of her character or power from her sexuality.”
