You can never have too much of a good thing, or so the old saying goes. But in Andre Braugher‘s case, you can have so many Primetime Emmy acting nominations (eight to be exact), that you’ll need a few moments — and perhaps a little help — to remember ‘em all.
Asked during a phone conversation how it feels to have scored nods for four separate series-regular roles (in addition to two nominations in the miniseries/movie genre), Braugher quickly lists Homicide: Life on the Street »
“We’re not concerned about it,” HBO Programming chief Michael Lombardo admitted at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday, in response to worries that the TV series may outpace author George R.R. Martin’s ability to finish the next novel.

If you were surprised to see Sarah Newlin pop up at a guru retreat on Sunday’s True Blood — as a brunette, no less! — you’re not alone. Even Sarah’s portrayer, Anna Camp, says she was taken aback by the twist.
“It’s not what I expected at all,” Anna tells TVLine of her character’s Season 7 whereabouts. “She’s definitely on the run; she’s got Pam and Eric after her now, and the Yakuza. … This season is about Sarah trying to survive. »

However, according to the insider, the project remains in development at 20th TV (possibly for as early as the 2015-2016 TV season). I’m told Himyd cocreators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are very much invested in keeping the Mother franchise going, and the pair have a lot »
The Outstanding Supporting Actor in a TV Miniseries or Movie contender has some fierce competition — from his own costars! — but for Bomer, who read Larry Kramer’s play of the same name as a teenager, nothing will outshine the “magical” experience of playing gay New York Times reporter Felix Turner.

Exclusive: Jeff Eastin, creator/executive producer of the USA Network series White Collar and Graceland, has signed with ICM Partners after being at CAA for more than a decade.

There has been a lot of talk and speculation surrounding the possible inclusion of Robin in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Daniel Radcliffe recently expressed interest in playing the character, and it was rumored that Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: Episode VII) was up for the role of Nightwing. There's no confirmation on whether Robin or Nightwing will be in the movie, but there's a good chance that somewhere down the line one or both of the characters will be introduced into Snyder's DC cinematic universe.
So I came up with a list of young actors who could potentially take on the role of Robin in the film. Over the years there have been several Robins introduced in the the comics, and any one of those could be brought into the franchise. There's Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Damian Wayne, and Carrie Kelley. Each one had a very different attitude, »

Last summer, despite mediocre ratings, USA renewed the Graceland TV show for a second season. Will the numbers improve this time around? Will the show be renewed for a third season or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.
Created by White Collar's Jeff Eastin, Graceland revolves around a diverse group of undercover agents from various government law enforcement agencies. They all live together under one roof in "Graceland," a confiscated beach house in Southern California. The show's cast includes Daniel Sunjata, Aaron Tveit, Brandon Jay McLaren, Vanessa Ferlito, Manny Montana, and Serinda Swan.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

It was a staple fixture of the kids’ schedules throughout the Nineties, then became a topic of notoriety due to the steamy exploits of star Dustin “Screech” Diamond. That mix of nostalgia and astonishment is about to be resurrected, with Lifetime broadcasting The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story, a telemovie delving behind the scenes in September. It’s not clear whether the film will utilize Diamond’s tell-all account Behind The Bell with its boasts of multiple sexual conquests, but the project has been cast by one name from the old days, Robin Lippin. Sam Kindseth (Shameless USA) is playing the role of the teen actor turned salacious scribe.
Running from 1989 – 93 in its original form, the show emanated (somewhat surprisingly) from a flop school sitcom starring Hayley Mills. It made household names of the cast for sometimes infamous reasons, with alumni including Elizabeth Berkley (Showgirls) and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (White Collar »

USA Network’s Graceland re-opens its doors this Wednesday at 10/9c, and it’s not long at all before FBI whiz kid Mike Warren finds cause to slip away from D.C. and visit the sun-baked beach house — though what he finds there may surprise him. Guns downstairs? Unlabeled fridge finds? Strange bedfellows? Oh, and who’s the new guy…?
Jeff Eastin, who previously created USA’s White Collar, shared with TVLine a look at the changes that Graceland the show has undergone, all while maintaining (if not amplifying) its darker, sexy tone.

Matt Bomer’s White Collar cons are coming to an end.

After protracted negotiations, USA finally renewed White Collar in March for a sixth season of just six episodes. “The really nice thing about six episodes »

On Tuesday, we'll talk with Matt Bomer about his role as AIDS-afflicted journalist Felix Turner in HBO's acclaimed telefilm "The Normal Heart," which recently received a field-leading five Critics' Choice nominations including a Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor bid for Bomer. Join us for our live chat on June 3, at 11:00am Pt/2:00pm Et on Gold Derby's home page. -Break- Will 'The Normal Heart' sweep Emmys like 'Angels in America' did? Outspoken writer and AIDS activist Larry Kramer wrote "The Normal Heart" in 1985. However, it didn't get its first Broadway run until 2011, where it won Best Play Revival at the Tonys and John Benjamin Hickey won Best Featured Actor as Felix. Will the role's stage success translate to the Emmys for Bomer? It would be the first Emmy nomination for Bomer, who stars in USA's "White Collar," which recently completed its fifth sea...' »
Matt Bomer has been waiting a long time for something like The Normal Heart to come along. The 36-year-old actor first found himself galvanized by Larry Kramer's landmark play as a still-closeted Texas teenager; later, when Ryan Murphy bought the rights and asked Bomer to lose 40 pounds for his role, the actor barely blinked. The HBO movie is a departure for Bomer, a handsome charmer best known for White Collar and Magic Mike who here plays Felix Turner, a closeted New York Times reporter who falls in love with out-and-proud activist Ned Weeks (Mark Ruffalo) but must struggle with his health after contracting AIDS in the early eighties. Bomer recently sat down with Vulture to discuss what the play means to him, the great lengths he went to in order to nail his role, and what his family thought about his massive physical transformation.There’s a line in »
