Just as when one thought that Salman Khan was successful in shrugging off the proverbial 'bad boy' tag from him, it seems that his wait just got longer. While on one hand, he has been in the centre of controversy with his by-now-infamous 'raped woman' remark, on the other hand, (as per market reports), there are some issues brewing within his apparel brand 'Being Human', of which he is the brand ambassador and a co-owner alongwith Mandhana Industries. As per the information in a leading business daily, the shares of Mandhana Industries have tumbled around 60% since last week, mainly because of the speculation that the company was having differences with Salman Khan's charitable trust over the profit sharing terms for selling 'Being Human's clothing line. Readers may know that, as per the understanding between Mandhana Industries and Salman Khan's 'Being Human Foundation', the »

Last week, TVLine’s editor-in-chief Michael Ausiello tweeted out a provocative rhetorical question: What the eff happened to Matthew Fox?!? And it got the rest of us thinking, why is that a rhetorical question? Shouldn’t the Party of Five and Lost leading man be headlining another series right now? He was a big star, after all, and is a talented actor. And surely, by now, he’s exorcized the demons that reportedly got the better of him back in 2011-12.

Showrunner Josh Safran says that the role was created specifically for Tovey. His character, Harry Doyle, is described as a "mischievous gadabout". A mysterious Artful Dodger-type "just as likely to seduce your husband as he is to pick his pocket when it's over."
Quantico returns Sundays at 10pm in the Fall, but a specific date has yet to be announced.

We’ll be bringing you various coverage over the coming couple of days, kicking off with a couple of panels which we attended earlier on today.

All three have now departed the series, but haven’t ruled out a return, as our video clip shows. Maybe a Christmas special is in order?

Actor Karl Urban remains very keen to take on the role of Judge Dredd again, to the point that he tweeted this week asking for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon to look into a "Dredd"-related project as "There's a gold mine of Awesome Mega city 1 stories." The tweet was prompted by a fan-made Netflix listing for a possible "Dredd" film sequel.

Superstar Salman Khan through his Being Human initiative and otherwise has extended his support to varied social causes. The actor in his generous nature had also requested the fans and general public to sign a petition way back in 2012, in support of Dalbir Kaur who was then fighting for the release of her brother Sarabjit Singh from Pakistan prison. However, we hear that this part of the actor's support to the struggle hasn't been included in the film Sarbjit, a biopic on the Pakistani prisoner. Earlier in June 2012, we had reported that Salman Khan had taken to Twitter to ask his Pakistani fans to come in support of Dalbir Kaur's fight for justice for her brother Sarabjit, who was on the death row in Pakistan jail and was being falsely accused as a spy. The superstar had tweeted, "Requesting the people of pakistan to support me to help free surabjeet »

The Outlander season 2 premiere is beautifully performed, non-stop emotional turmoil...
The first season of Outlander was largely devoted to Scottish Jacobite intrigue, seen through the eyes of the outlander of the title, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a nurse from 1946 who finds herself thrown back two hundred years in time, away from husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) and into the arms of new husband and laird-in-hiding Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan). After a particularly nasty entanglement with Frank’s ancestor, Black Jack Randall (also played by Menzies), Jamie and Claire flee to France, at which point the first season ended.
Anyone familiar with Diana Gabaldon’s books, particularly Dragonfly In Amber on which this season is based, will be some way prepared for how this second season opens, but perhaps not ready for how well it is done. It’s forty minutes of nearly non-stop emotional turmoil, beautifully performed by »

It's safe to say we'll be seeing more of him soon, so keep reading to see all of his hottest moments so far, and be sure to check out even more ridiculously good-looking Irish actors! »

Syfy will launch a new Pa show in Summer called Aftermath. The 13-episode Canadian apocalypse thriller will begin production on May 2 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Aftermath was created by William Laurin (Missing) and Glenn Davis (John Woo’s Once a Thief) and centers on couple Karen and Joshua Copeland and their children Dana, Brianna and Matt, who must battle for survival after civilization comes to an apocalyptic end, triggered by massive storms, meteor strikes, earthquakes and plague – and the rise of supernatural creatures.
Jason Stone (This is the End) is set to direct the first two episodes while Stefan Pleszczinski (Being Human), Kaare Andrews (Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero), April Mullen (Killjoys) and Jame [Continued ...] »
The British actress is best known for starring on BBC’s “Being Human.” She showed off her comedy chops two pilot seasons ago with NBC’s short-lived comedy “A to Z” on which she was a series regular, appearing in all 13 episodes.
The untitled mutli-cam CBS comedy is about a conservative small-town family that is forced to reconcile their values when they discover their children’s lives are less than perfect.
Crichlow will play Anna, a whip-smart young woman who served in Afghanistan with Billy (Zano), the golden boy of his family who gets her pregnant.

Whenever humans imagine being invaded by an alien race, it’s pretty much always a big deal. Flying saucers land and what follows are mind-blowing technological developments, intergalactic war, the White House being evaporated, or Sarah Jessica Parker’s head winding up on a Chihuahua’s body. Rarely is first contact no biggie.
Except in E4’s The Aliens, a new comedy sci-fi written by Fintan Ryan (Rev, In The Flesh, Never Better) set forty years after an extra-terrestrial craft crash-lands in the North Sea. Out of it came a few hundred humanoid aliens who travelled ashore on rafts and were, for a short time, integrated into British society before political resentment and intolerance eventually forced them into a ghetto. Known as Troy, »
The BBC Three remit aimed to attract 16-34 year olds, Bennett explained at the 2012 Edinburgh International Television Festival. Because The Fades found more love among those with mortgages and middle-age spread than it did with fresh-faced teens and twenty-somethings, it didn’t fulfil that remit.
However much critical acclaim (plaudits from The Guardian, The Telegraph, some website called Den Of Geek) or however many awards (a Bafta for Best Drama, nominations for Best Writer, wins for Best Music and Digital Effects) The Fades received, the kids weren’t down so it had to go. »
Part of The Mighty Boosh’s delight comes from its unlikelihood as a TV sitcom. Its boundless Day-Glo imagination isn’t an immediate fit with the constraints of the form. A sunshine simpleton and his awkward, jazz-obsessed colleague meet mythic monsters and talking animals while performing expertly observed musical parody? It’s not exactly My Family.
As comedian, writer, and director of Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding’s 1999 Edinburgh show Arctic Boosh, Stewart Lee, put it, “No television exec would ever have gone ‘What we need is a kind of purple head with tentacles coming out of it which speaks like a member of the Small Faces’”.
And yet a television exec did. Granted, probably not in those exact words. After Danny Wallace opened the door »
It started off as a joke, a silly fantasy twist on a generic sitcom premise, but Being Human somehow, against more odds than we remember years later, ended up becoming one of the defining British genre shows of the decade. It was both of its time back in the vampire-saturated late noughties and classic in the way few shows manage to be. It was lightning in a bottle, and much of its power came from just how unexpected it was.
Back in 2009, BBC Three wasn't known for quality genre drama. The BBC arm aimed at tempting the eyeballs of the notoriously difficult to engage 16-34 age bracket, the channel had been going through an identity crisis since its inception and needed something to define it as an entity in and of itself. »
Surrounding your workspace with more clutter than a mid-noughties Myspace page is one way to assert individualism inside a bland corporate identity. It tells the world, ‘I’m not a number, I’m a free man! A free man overly fond of Pikachu!’ It can also be an act of mild rebellion, akin to leaving out the short and skinny bit of your school tie instead of the long, fat bit of your school tie that the man wants to see.
And then there’s sentimental desk décor, the talismans from loved ones from which you draw daily strength, reminding you why you shackled yourself to the capitalist cart horse in the first place. These are the photos, drawings and poorly made pottery items that prove you exist outside of work, »
Russell Tovey-starring film to open the 30th anniversary of the BFI’s annual Lgbt film festival.
The Pass will have its world premiere as the opening film of the 2016 edition of BFI Flare: London Lgbt Film Festival (March 16-27).

Williams’ feature debut stars Russell Tovey (Being Human) as a premier league footballer who, on the night of his first big international match, rooms with a team mate – played by Arinze Kene (Freestyle) – and the two share an intimate moment that has repercussions on their public and private lives.
The premiere will take place at London’s Odeon Leicester Square on March 16, kicking off the BFI Flare festival which runs until March 27 and is celebrating its 30th edition in 2016.
The festival’s full programme will include screenings of 50 feature films, as well as »
Syfy’s ambitious space opera The Expanse has been renewed for a second season, expected in 2017…
Here’s a brief but exciting update on Syfy’s ambitious series The Expanse. The network, we’re pleased to report, has ordered a second season of the show.
If you’re unfamiliar, The Expanse is based on James S.A. Correy’s novel series of the same name. It’s set 200 years in he future, following a central trio of characters (played by Thomas Jane, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Steven Strait) as they uncover a conspiracy of galactic proportions.
So far, season one has offered an enjoyable space opera covering the lives of these three characters – a detective, a politician and a freighter worker, respectively – each doing their bit to unearth what’s really going on behind the scenes in this somewhat dystopian future.
