Melissa Benoist Boards Lowriders

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Glee alum Melissa Benoist is about to blow up. She earned strong reviews for a supporting turn in Whiplash, is leading CBS’ high-profile Supergirl series this fall and just locked down another promising project in Lowriders, from Universal Pictures, Blumhouse and Imagine Entertainment.

Reteaming with Blumhouse after the studio produced Whiplash, Benoist will play a key female role in the pic, which centers on a teen who is forced to pick between his traditional father and gangbanger brother, both of whom are competing in the annual lowrider “Supershow.” The movie is aiming to explore the re-emerging low-rider culture in Eastern Los Angeles’ Latino communities.

Demian Bichir, Eva Longoria, Tony Revolori, Gabriel Chavarria, Theo Rossi and Yvette Monreal are all already attached. Ricardo de Montreuil (Máncora) has come aboard to direct the pic, working from a script by Josh Bierne-Gordon and Justin Tipping (Nani, upcoming Kicks).  Earlier versions of the script »

The Good Wife Recap: When One Door Comes Unhinged... Walk Through It?

3 May 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’m not going to lie to you: I’m a lot more excited than I ought to be about the prospect of The Good Wife‘s seventh season focusing on Alicia Florrick tackling daily home-renovation projects as a bridge to her 5pm one-woman happy hour.

But lest network television’s most consistently challenging drama turn into a home-furnishings fantasy (directed by Nancy Meyers and guest-starring Diane Keaton), I’m happy to report that this week’s installment, titled “Don’t Fail,” could’ve just as easily been called “How Alicia Got Her Courtroom Groove Back.” (No, this doesn’t »

28 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Ben McKenzie’s clear-eyed stare makes him the perfect cop, as he proved on Southland and continues to prove on Fox’s Gotham. (Gotham season finale is set to air on Fox Monday, May 4.) “As we begin the series, he is an old-fashioned hero, a man of principle, a veteran,” McKenzie says of his character, James Gordon. “He is very much his father’s son — his father being a revered D.A. — and Jim has modeled himself in his father’s image. He comes into Gotham to take on that cause from his father only to find out Gotham is not exactly … Continue reading →

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either.  They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met.

Ben McKenzie on 'Gotham' Season 2 and Becoming the Next Liam Neeson

13 April 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ben McKenzie isn't that big. At 5'8'', he's hardly the imposing figure one would associate with a small screen brawler. But he certainly has a presence. Sitting down for a drink with the young television veteran — a breakout star from "The O.C.," proven talent on "Southland" and now franchise lead in "Gotham" — anyone could tell the polite and thoughtful thespian knows how to handle himself. A Texas native, McKenzie doesn't dismiss even the softest of questions, instead giving each the common (though rare) courtesy of consideration. But — as he'll soon say about Lbj — he's got his own "intoxicating" kind of intimidation. This  should come as no surprise to anyone tuning into McKenzie's latest starring role, and there are a lot of you doing just that. "Gotham" has turned into one of the big hits of the 2014-2015 TV season, earning a Season 2 green light in January and pulling in »

‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ Netflix Series Confirmed For 2016 Premiere

1 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the highly anticipated Daredevil only days away, Netflix and Marvel Television have once again excited fans with news of another of their collaborations, this time confirming the 2016 launch for Marvel’s Luke Cage, featuring Mike Colter in the lead role.

Considering that the second of Netflix/Marvel’s four confirmed series – A.K.A Jessica Jones - is slated for release later this year and that it sees Colter’s Cage making an appearance alongside star Krysten Ritter, it comes as no real surprise that Luke Cage’s solo outing won’t be making it to our screens during 2015.

Nonetheless, confirmation of a 2016 release for Luke Cage will be reason for celebration by many, with the news reaffirming Netflix and Marvel’s commitment to delivering all of their planned comic-based shows in a reasonable timeframe; great news for those waiting patiently for Iron Fist or The Defenders mini-series.
