Following our first look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf and Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood [see here], Entertainment Weekly have released a batch of further images from Disney’s upcoming musical fantasy Into the Woods, which we have for you here…
Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
Into the Woods features a cast that »

A “Pride and Prejudice” sequel/murder mystery? That alone should be a sufficient come-on to rouse English-lit majors and awaken “Masterpiece” viewers, but “Death Comes to Pemberley” — a two-part movie adapted from P.D. James’ novel — has the extra advantage of being perfectly cast and extremely entertaining, even for those who might need a Jane Austen refresher course. The whodunit, frankly, takes a backseat to simply luxuriating in the atmosphere, as Anna Maxwell Martin and “The Americans’” Matthew Rhys portray one of literature’s most famous couples, with Matthew Goode as Wickham, the amiable rogue who nearly came between them.
The story begins six years after the aristocratic Darcy (Rhys) swept the poor Elizabeth (Maxwell Martin) off her feet, and she has become the lady at his sprawling estate. Of course, the path to true love in these environs is always complicated, though that discomfort here falls to Darcy’s sister »

The film introduces a new character to the popular video game franchise, Agent Jameson Locke played by Mike Colter (“Ringer,” “The Good Wife”).

I don't know from video games, but I know fans of the Halo series have been dreaming of a feature film for many, many years. While the news that Ridley Scott would produce a "digital series" was likely enticing, I don't think anyone expected Halo:Nightfall to look as big budget and glossy as this!
This trailer feels like it's for a blockbuster. We don't have a famous face, but we do have some great acting talent here in Mike Colter (The Good Wife) and a cast of others including Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Steve Waddington (The Last Of The Mohicans), Luke Neal (Wilderness) and Christian Contreras (Zero Dark Thirty.
The second Halo: Nightfall trailer — that being the Ridley Scott-produced digital series directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan – shows a bit more scope than what we saw in the first trailer. There’s a ship or two, a hint of the Covenant, and at least the backdrop of the vista of a Halo ring. Mike Colter (The Good Wife) stars as […]

Halo: Nightfall, debuting November 11, 2014 in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Executive-produced by Ridley Scott, Scott Free TV President David Zucker, and directed by the award-winning Sergio Mimica-Gezzan ("Battlestar Galactica," "Pillars of the Earth," "Heroes"). Halo: Nightfall is a live action series providing insight into the origin and backstory of legendary manhunter Agent Locke (Mike Colter, “The Good Wife”), a pivotal new character in the Halo universe who will play a key role in Halo 5: Guardians. A strange and treacherous world exposes elite Unsc operatives to a much deeper danger. »
Xbox Studios has released the official trailer for the Ridley Scott produced digital feature Halo: Nightfall, and it looks awesome! This is a breath-taking trailer with all kinds of really cool footage that I think fans of the Halo franchise are going love. There's a lot of talent that went into developing this thing, and you can definitely see Scott's hand in telling this story.
Mike Colter plays a character named Jameson Locke, who is "a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is a rising star in a futuristic Spartan army and troubled by the military industrial complex he inhabits." The story is set between the events that took place in Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians.

The cover of Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf in the upcoming Disney movie Into The Woods. Previously, we’d only seen shots of the character from the trailer, which didn’t show his face, but luckily for us the cover gives us a full look…

They say you should never mix business with pleasure, but on Wednesday’s Stalker (CBS, 10/9c), it seems Detective Larsen is throwing that rule right out the window.
In TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek above, Larsen and fellow detectives Lawrence and Caldwell swap stories about their biggest fears, after their latest case reveals some extra-spooky stalking methods.
But things take a turn for the flirty when Lawrence admits she’s afraid of the dark — and Caldwell quickly realizes he’s third-wheeling this office chat.

There’s a lot of interesting new TV kicking around, but this week we roll back our regular podcast coverage a bit to make room for a special segment. First we look at a few reality offerings, including the pilot of the new documentary series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, and some comedy, including an at least partially pantheon-level Key & Peele. Then we look at some genre, particularly American Horror Story: Freak Show, and we round out our week with a few drama offerings, including the finale of The Knick. Afterward, the fabulous Maureen Ryan of the Huffington Post and Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan returns to the podcast to discuss Transparent season one, the first half-season of Outlander, and several other series as we look at new representations of sexuality that are finally popping up on television.

The overall network ratings picture hasn’t changed much in the early going this season, as NBC last week made it four straight primetime victories in adults 18-49 while CBS remained top dog in total viewers for a fourth straight time.
According to same-night Nielsen estimates for the week of Oct. 13-19, NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” reclaimed the top spot in the “live plus same-day” program rankings, with its San Francisco-Denver NFL game — in which Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning set the career NFL touchdown passing record with its 509th career score in the second quarter — netting an 8.2 rating in adults 18-49. In its second week back, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” did a still-monster 7.7 rating.
The football game also ranked No. 1 in total viewers, while CBS claimed the week’s two most-watched scripted programs with its Tuesday combo of “NCIS” (17.26 million) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (16.14 million).

Alan Cumming is coming clean about his awkward encounter with Shia Labeouf! "The Good Wife" star stopped by Monday's "Conan" where he chatted with Conan O'Brien about Shia's eccentric behavior and arrest during one of his Broadway "Cabaret" shows. Check out the video above to see what Alan had to say about the whole ordeal and if he forgives the 28-year-old! So what was his take on the Labeouf's aggressive behavior? "He was just wasted," according to Cumming. "There was an atmosphere – when I went down to go onstage and start the show, everyone was freaking out, because there was, you know, someone who seemed to be a crazy person," he continued. But it definitely seems like the actor has forgiven the former Disney star, he's even over the whole butt-slapping incident that also occurred the same night with Shia. "He did say that the reason he did it was »

Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9), Finch asks the question many of us have wondered ever since Samaritan went online: How is Root able to flit around from persona to persona, while the rest of Team Machine is locked into one identity apiece?
In this above sneak peek, Root (played by Amy Acker) explains her “fluid” state as she sheds her Un translator’s red locks… and more… while Finch (Michael Emerson) does his best to avert his male gaze.
CBS’ The Millers christened its new Season 2 time slot on Monday night with 8.9 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating (per finals), down sharply from both its series launch (13 mil/2.3) and last week’s 8:30 Big Bang Theory rerun (11.4 mil/2.8) but on par with both its freshman finale (9.8 mil/2.3) and its most recent retention out of Big Bang.
Sheldon & Co. opened the Eye’s night with 16 mil/4.6, up in eyeballs and a tenth in the demo. With a new lead-in, Scorpion (10.8 mil/2.4) dipped 6 percent in audience while steady in the demo. NCIS: La (8.8 mil/1.7) ticked up a tenth in the demo. »
If there isn’t enough bloodshed in Pride and Prejudice for your taste, Death Comes to Pemberley (premiering this Sunday on Masterpiece on PBS) has murder, a hysterical Bennet (played by Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman) and Matthew Rhys (The Americans) as the dashing Mr. Darcy.
Adapted from P.D. James’ novel, the miniseries picks up after the events of the Jane Austen classic, when Pemberley is rocked by a whodunit. In TVLine’s exclusive first look, Lydia Bennet (Coleman) arrives at the estate, screaming bloody murder, and a slap is the only thing capable of calming her down. (Naturally, the excitable Mrs. »
There are two sides to every story. And in the wake of Shia Labeouf's apology tour following his very public meltdown, one person involved in the incident hasn't been as vocal: Alan Cumming, the star of the live Broadway show Labeouf interrupted. But now comes Cumming's version of events, which ... actually isn't too different from Labeouf's. A guest on Conan Monday, Cumming told O'Brien that Labeouf was "just wasted" in the theater that night. "There was an atmosphere - when I went down to go onstage and start the show, everyone was freaking out, because there was, you know, »
Homeland, Season 4, Episode 4, “Iron in the Fire”

There are several reminders in this episode about how good Carrie is at her job, as if the writers are making sure we have the right perspective on her character before the episode’s final scene. Fara tells Quinn when he arrives, “I don’t know how she finds time to sleep.” Later, the guy John Redmond had tailing Carrie last episode (and failing) tells John, simply, “She’s good.” Considering the fact that we’ve seen Carrie often at her worst, it is valuable to remember what a good agent she is. Which brings us to that final scene.
Much of the hour is spent building up the tension between Quinn and Carrie, which is apparently meant to be read as sexual tension. To the writers’ credit, »
