They may be on the small screen, but there’s nothing small about their paychecks: The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara top this year’s list of the highest-paid actors and actresses on TV.
The annual list, compiled by Forbes magazine, tracks earnings from June 2015 to June 2016 and adds in each actor’s endorsements along with their per-episode salaries. That explains why Vergara leads all TV actors, male or female, with a whopping $43 million, thanks to lucrative ad campaigns (like Head & Shoulders shampoo) and licensing deals.

Question: I’m curious about the mention of a boyfriend for Arrow‘s Felicity (in TVLine’s Comic-Con video). She’s supposed to be so traumatized by Havenrock that she has pretty much shut down and is focusing on work as a vigilante, but she’s also dating? Seems odd. —Morgan

Torres’ casting comes just after she exited “Suits” on the show’s summer finale last night. She had been on the long-running USA Network series for five-and-a-half seasons. However, Torres is joining ABC’s “The Catch” in a recurring role, and “Suits” creator Aaron Korsh said in recent interviews there is a possibility the actress can return to his show in guest spots.
Last pilot season, Torres was cast as the lead in ABC’s “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez,” and though the project was not picked up to series, her “Suits” departure came into discussion at the time of that pilot. Though “Eva Sofia Valdez” didn’t go all the way, the network kept an eye on Torres and found »

Sofia Vergara has done it again! On Wednesday, Forbes released its annual list of the world's highest-paid TV Actresses and leading the pack for the fifth year in a row is none other than the Modern Family star. The 44-year-old Colombian-American actress brought home a whooping $43 million before management fees and taxes, but not all came from her hit TV show. Vergara has an impressive array of endorsement deals as well as her line of products. Runner-up Kaley Cuoco, 30, was listed at $24.5 million with almost all of that being from playing her beloved character Penny on CBS' The Big Bang Theory. »

Directed by Joe Dante.
An enterprising film promoter capitalises on the hysteria during the Cuban missile crisis and introduces the idea of live props and special effects to a Florida town during a horror movie showing.
There is a theory that horror movies tend to thrive and become popular with mainstream audiences during times of social upheaval. Joe Dante’s Matinee is a comedy that has this idea at its core and, amongst other things, plays with the notions of horror movie making in a love letter to 1950s/1960s creature features and growing up during a time when everything seemed so much more innocent.

There’s never been a better time to be a fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

These expansions are some of the best we’ve played in recent memory, but The Witcher 3 itself was one of the best game’s of last year. You can check out our original review, in which I gave the game 5 stars out of 5, which we only hand out to a handful of games each year.

Sean Wilson chats exclusively to multiple Emmy nominee Robert Duncan, veteran composer of shows as diverse as Castle, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Lie to Me, getting to the heart of the essential question: what makes a truly great soundtrack?
Robert, it’s a privilege to chat to you. To begin with, you were born into an extraordinary lineage of illustrious musicians – as I understand it, your great-grandfather composed music for silent movies, is that correct?
He did, yes, in London. He would take excerpts of classical pieces and pull out the pages of the applicable part and line them up on the music stands. He then had a little foot switch that connected to the lights on the musicians’ music stands. So he would step on the switch, the light would flicker and they would know to turn the page and start playing the chase music; then he would »

Are these the faces of the future of film scoring?
Earlier this month, 12 young composers each got the chance to stand on the 20th Century Fox scoring stage, conducting a 65-piece orchestra playing their own music. It was the culmination of their participation in the Ascap Film Scoring Workshop, a four-week immersion into the high-pressure, high-profile world of movie music.
As participant John Carey put it: “It was like getting to jump ahead 20 or 30 years in your career for a night, to a mock scenario where you would be scoring a major blockbuster film. Imagine being a quarterback in high school and suddenly getting to be in the NFL for a day; it’s just surreal.
“And after stepping off the podium my first thought was, ‘I have to figure out how to come back here and do this again.’”
Carey was one of four Americans chosen from among 300 applicants for this year’s program. »
