19 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Heroes Reborn has added another member to its team, but it still remains to be seen whether this new addition will be a hero or someone more villainous. Covert Affairs actress Nazneen Contractor is joining NBC’s upcoming revival in a “mysterious” new role. Contractor will be playing Farah, who Deadline describes as a “mysterious character” that is “militant, tough and stoic.” In addition to Covert Affairs, Contractor’s past TV credits include 24 and Revenge and, more recently, Scorpion, Castle, and Stalker. In addition to Contractor, the cast of Heroes Reborn will feature many new faces, such as Chuck‘s Zachary Levi, Judi Shekoni (EastEnders), Henry Zebrowski (A to Z) Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time), Ryan Guzman (Pretty Little Liars), Kiki Sukezane (The Yokai King), Pruitt Taylor Vince (The Mentalist), Eve Harlow (The 100), Francesca Eastwood, and Toru Uchikado.

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an exclusive interview with Flickering Myth, actor Wayne Bastrup discusses his role in the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Terminator Genisys alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke. Bastrup, who has also featured in hit shows CSI: NY and The Mentalist, sat down with Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis about his acting, his hopes for the future and working alongside Mr. Universe

Scott Davis: Terminator Genisys is arguably one of the most anticipated summer blockbusters this year – how did you become involved with the film? Did you have to go through an audition process for the role?

Wayne Bastrup: My wonderful manager was able to get me into the audition room. They were looking for an actor to play the younger (1984 version) of J.K. Simmons character. I remember when I read the breakdown and thought to myself, “Really? I look like J.K.?” It had never crossed my mind. He »

Executive producer Greg Berlanti on the chances of Supergirl crossing over with Arrow and The Flash

17 May 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From virtually the moment it was announced that Arrow and The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti was developing another DC project in Supergirl, there’s been speculation about a potential crossover between the shows.

However, given that Supergirl will air on a different network to her fellow DC superheroes, it would seem the chances are slim, and indeed CBS chairman Nina Tassler confirmed as much back in January. Still, Berlanti himself hasn’t quite given up hope, telling Variety that:

“The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves. I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see [a crossover]. I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.”

You ain’t slick, Grey’s Anatomy. This week, the show tried to move us past the shock of Derek’s death and the “aww” of Ellis’ birth by distracting us with another of the mega-calamities for which the series is infamous. But did it work? Read on, then we’ll discuss.

Supergirl lands full series order at CBS

6 May 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s… super good news! Ahead of the upfronts next week, CBS has officially granted a full series order to Supergirl.

The series – developed by Arrow and The Flash producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg along with Chuck alum Ali Adler – was given a series commitment last fall, and has picked up quite a bit of buzz ever since. Where it will wind up on CBS’ schedule hasn’t been announced, and likely won’t be until the aforementioned upfronts next week, when the network unveils all of its plans for the upcoming fall television season.

Despite sharing a creative team with the CW DC shows, Supergirl is expected to stand independently from The Flash and Arrow - though I guess crossovers are never out of the question in today’s superhero-driven climate. The show stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, »

CBS Grants Supergirl A Series Order

6 May 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In what amounts to a news story we all saw coming, CBS has officially given Supergirl a series order. The show – developed and written by Arrow and The Flash showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with Chuck and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler – went into development last fall and was given a series commitment shortly thereafter.

The show stars Glee alum Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, who escaped Krypton’s destruction and has been in hiding on Earth and keeping her powers a secret ever since. The series will pick up when Kara is 24 years old and ready to “embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.” Her famous cousin, Superman, is expected to show up in a small capacity, but the Supergirl will mainly focus on Kara’s solo adventures and coming-of-age journey into heroism.

Joining Benoist are True Blood‘s Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, »

Gotham episode 21 review: The Anvil Or The Hammer

28 April 2015 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It’s gearing up for a hell of a finale, but female characters don’t come out of this week’s Gotham very well…

This review contains spoilers.

1.21 The Anvil Or The Hammer

Holy sexism, Batman! Only last week, Barbara’s Ogre strand was feeling like a breath of fresh air – a disliked supporting character was given a chance to bounce off a new villain before the main cast got to him. Good times. This week? Not so much. There wasn’t much of anything likeable in her portrayal this week, unfortunately.

We had high hopes that Barbara might get a heroic moment, wrong-footing the murderous misogynist villain at the crucial moment, and thus playing her part in the Batman-pre-empting crime-fighting action of the series.

Instead, the script (the first Gotham instalment written by supervising producer and The Mentalist alum Jordan Harper) threw out any hopes of an air-punching »
