Henry Thomas captured America's heart as Elliott in the 1982 classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and he hasn't stopped working since. He starred in one of my personal childhood favorites, Cloak and Dagger, and in notable films such as Valmont, Legends of the Fall, Suicide Kings, All The Pretty Horses, Gangs of New York, Dear John, and many more. The actor returns to play music icon Hank Williams in The Last Ride, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD. Set just days before the country singer passed away, this drama is based on the true story of a young man (Jesse James) hired to drive Hank to a series of concerts over the New Year's Eve holiday, and the bond that formed between these very different men. I recently had the chance to speak with »
You’ll definitely remember Anthony Edwards from ER not too long ago, and now he’s set to take on the world of television again with ‘Zero Hour‘. In the show, he returns – along with a dynamic ensemble cast – to this dramatic adventure thriller, as Hank Galliston, a man who’s questioning everything and everyone he ever believed in – including himself. If you’re a fan of Prison Break then you’re sure to want to check this out as Paul Scheuring has created and written this brand-new series.
So far, only the first three episodes have aired in America. The show is airing over the summer so the UK is currently ahead of America and you can find it here: www.itunes.co.uk/tv/zerohour

We suppose one can't predict exactly where they'll be walking throughout the night, but Kate Bosworth must have known she'd come across a sidewalk when she slipped into this dress? Maybe this Proenza Schouler frock wasn't quite so gravel-colored in the light of the Big Sur star's bedroom? We'll give her that benefit of the doubt, but we're not sure we even love the shape or style. Those heavy short sleeves hide her petite shoulders, and the long length in thick teed doesn't feel like pre-summer wear. So, in the end, maybe it's better off fading into the concrete after all... Sorry Kate! »
I was a big fan of ABC‘s Zero Hour when I previewed the pilot last summer, and was disappointed that they were holding it until midseason. When they finally did air it, they had made a few changes with a few scenes, but it was still the cool Indiana Jones-feeling, Nazi hating, twisty fun mysterious show I remembered, complete with creepy baby.
Of course I was horribly disappointed when ABC canceled the series after airing just three episodes, but over-the-moon happy when they announced that they would air all 13 episodes this summer.
Well that happy day is now finally nearly upon us, as Zero Hour returns Saturday at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere. But… it isn’t the pilot. In fact, they are picking up where they left off, and will be airing episodes four and five on Saturday. If you didn’t see the first three episodes when »

We were so disappointed that Zero Hour wasn’t given more time to gain an audience, but at least were pleased when ABC announced that the entire first season would air this summer, including the first three episodes that aired in the winter.
Happily, ABC has now paired those episodes with unaired episodes from another gone-too-soon show from earlier this season, 666 Park Avenue, according to Deadline. As you know from the SciFiMafia.com Spring and Summer Primetime TV Schedule and the SciFiMafia.com Calendar, Zero Hour premieres Saturday, June 15 at 8/7c. 666 Park Avenue will join Zero Hour on June 22, following it at 9/8c and continuing weekly for three more weeks.

Kate Bosworth isn't one to necessarily fall for her director. But this time around, it just couldn't be helped. Appearing on Thursday night's Chelsea Lately to hype her latest flick, Black Rock, the 30-year-old actress spilled to Chelsea Handler on her relationship with indie auteur Michael Polish, whom she got engaged to last year. "By the way, they're very, very in love…so it's very sweet. Because you met him on a set, right?" asked the funnylady. "We did…we worked together on a movie called Big Sur," revealed Bosworth. "I fell in love with him as an artist. He's really one of the best directors I've ever worked with, and [I] realized I »
Kate Bosworth loves cooking shows. The 30-year-old actress is obsessed with whipping up dishes and gets her inspiration from 'Top Chef' and 'Chopped'. She told People magazine: 'I love all of the cooking shows like 'Chopped' and 'Top Chef'. I've just started to learn in the last couple of years and I love it. My specialty is a sausage ragu, it takes about six or seven hours to cook. That's almost my mini-vacation, cooking with my fiance Michael [Polish] and his daughter and just having family time.' Kate was previously in relationships with Orlando Bloom and Alexander Skarsgard before she romanced Michael. The pair met on the set of 'Big Sur' - based on the autobiographical novel of Jack Kerouac »

Having had memorable roles on two iconic television shows – as Jimmy Barrett on the Emmy Award-winning series Mad Men and as part of the Dharma Initiative on Lost – he also had Big Sur, adapted from the work of Jack Kerouac, premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and the action-thriller 2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, opens later this year.

Kate and Michael met when they worked together on the movie Big Sur, and got engaged last September, just a few months after last year's Coachella festivities.

This is terrific news for all who join me in bemoaning the far-too-soon cancellation of supernatural Nazi clock creepy baby puzzler Zero Hour. We were told that the remainder of the episodes would air, and now, happily, that schedule has been set. The news was somewhat giddily tweeted by the Zero Hour writers themselves, or at least whomever has their Twitter password:
Airing update! ABC’s showing all 13 eps of Zero Hour starting Sat. June 15th at 8pm! Set your DVR’s and clear your summer schedules! Whohoo!

Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, Michael Polish, touched down at Lax yesterday and were hand in hand. The couple returned to La after a trip overseas to take part in London Fashion Week where they showed Pda front row at the Topshop Unique show. They weren't the only stars that flocked to London for the fashionable festivities - see all the celebrities at London Fashion Week. Kate and Michael have been quite the jet-setters over the past two months. The couple together debuted their film Big Sur at the Sundance Film Festival in January and then headed off on a romantic getaway to Montana. They did get to spend some time at home in La before their recent jaunt to London, though. Kate had Michael by her side to celebrate the opening of Topshop's West Coast store at the star-studded launch party last week. View Slideshow › »

'On The Road' is the ultimate novel for the Beat Generation, with Jack Kerouac, and has weathered many attempts to bring it to the big screen. But finally, it's made it onto celluloid, with the trio of young stars Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, and our own Sam Riley - best known previously for 'Control' and the recent remake of 'Brighton Rock'.
The story which has a huge cult following is based on the travels of Kerouac and his friends across America. It is considered a defining work of the postwar Beat Generation and has inspired many generations of people to grab their back packs and head of on an adventure of a life time. To mark the DVD release of this soul-searching road movie, Sam Riley speaks about what a Yorkshire boy is doing in this A-list lineup, »

Kate Bosworth cuddled up to her fiancé Michael Polish at the Topshop Unique show during London Fashion Week yesterday. Kate has been a big supporter of the brand lately. She was able to celebrate with Topshop back in the states last week, joining Demi Lovato to open the new Topshop/Topman store at The Grove last week. She and Michael also attended the store's star-studded launch party. London is the couple's latest stop after a jet-setting start to 2013. Kate and Michael kicked off February with a romantic getaway to Montana and before that made a stop in Park City, Ut, to promote their film, Big Sur, at the Sundance Film Festival. View Slideshow › »

It doesn't sound like Kate Bosworth is a bridezilla-in-the-making. The actress, who is engaged to her Big Sur director Michael Polish, admits she hasn't even started looking at wedding dresses. "I haven't really thought that much about that detail yet," Bosworth told me at the Topshop Topman party at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. "There are lots of things I need to figure out." Polish isn't too concerned about everything coming together. "He's a filmmaker so he said, 'Don't worry. A wedding is just a production. I do it all the time,'" Bosworth said. Despite having spent a large part of Valentine's Day at the new Topshop »

A melancholic exploration of Jack Kerouac’s mind during his trips to poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s remote cabin on the pacific coast, Big Sur quietly captivates with a moody mix of striking scenery and rapid-fire narration. Kerouac used his prose to break away from the repressive stranglehold of mid-20th century American values and became one of the freewheeling heroes of the Beat Generation. Finding tremendous acclaim as a rebellious writer, celebrity was surprisingly something he didn’t desire and struggled desperately to escape. The pensive focus of this film is the serious depression and consequential alcoholism of a genius bent on self-destruction. Big Sur takes takes a hard look at Kerouac’s deterioration following the wild success of the novel “On the Road” and is almost entirely composed of his anxiety-ridden introspection. This brooding, despair laden story might »
We very much approve of the new-ish network practice of posting a series premiere online before the premiere, especially for good intrigue/supernatural/serial/DaVinci Code-like shows like Zero Hour. Plus Nazis, Anthony Edwards, and old clocks! I was able to check it out last summer and loved it, and hope you’ll love it too. Watch it, make sure to watch it through the very end (trust me), and talk it up with your friends. We need good shows like this to do well.
First, a very cool poster and a reminder of what the show’s about:
