Agent 47 is a reboot of Hitman (which starred Justified’s Timothy Olyphant as the lead character and grossed over $100 million worldwide back in 2007). The movie is based on the hit video game franchise from Square Enix, and this take on the bald assassin was shot in a number of locations including Berlin and Singapore.
Friend’s other big screen credits include Pride and Prejudice and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, so this will see him take on his first role in a big budget blockbuster. Of course, he’s no stranger to action thanks to his role in the Showtime drama and should have little trouble convincingly portraying the tough as nails anti-hero who »

Thanks to "Fargo" and "American Horror Story: Coven," FX had a huge Emmy nomination haul two weeks ago. And with "Fargo" leading the way, the network still has some of the best reviewed shows on TV. However, "Tyrant" and "The Strain" both drew mixed reviews, as did the comedies "Married" and "You Are The Worst." Fxx is still struggling to find an identity as it awaits a massive influx of "Simpsons" repeats. And just last week, FX announced that it would no longer be providing L+Sd ratings for reporters, preferring the fuller picture of Live+3 and Live+7 numbers. So let's just say that FX President John Landgraf will have plenty to talk about on Monday (July 21) morning at the Television Critics Association press tour...

Wheelchair-bound as she recuperates from a car accident that killed her boyfriend, Jessabelle returns home to be near her father, but ends up getting too close to a malevolent spirit that haunts the house. Originally slated for a late summer release, the premiere of Jessabelle has been pushed back slightly by Blumhouse Productions to a different season.

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of Suits, “Pound of Flesh,” stop reading now. Creator Aaron Korsh talks about the “guns-down” hour that gives Sean Cahill (Neal McDonough) and Charles Forstman (Eric Roberts) more ammunition.
Mike didn’t really want to get in bed with Forstman, so he hadn’t officially taken his money yet. In the end, Forstman went behind Mike’s back and got Jonathan to accept it—twisted—and was like, “We’re partners, even if you don’t want to be.” Tell me about casting Eric Roberts. As a viewer, you »

Chances are you know Clayne Crawford as that guy who always plays the jerk-off. The actor, 36, has long been typecast as the villain, most recently in 24 and Justified, and going back to his smirkiest work in teen movies like Swimfan and A Walk to Remember. But in Ray McKinnon’s outstanding small-town drama Rectify, Crawford gets to be heartbreaking as a frustrated tire salesman whose world is turned upside down when his brother-in-law is released from Death Row. Vulture chatted with Crawford about feeling bad for fratty Ted Jr., long days on set, and coming to terms with a chronic case of what he calls relaxed douche face.Things are falling apart for Teddy. His marriage is in trouble. The tire business is in bad shape. I’m sure there are plenty of people who still want to punch him for the way he treats Daniel, but I just feel »

It should be easy to feel sympathy for Emmy voters in 2014. There is more good television now than ever before, available in more places (including non-traditional streaming video outfits like Netflix and Amazon) than ever before. There is abundant category confusion, where a show like "Shameless" can jump from drama to comedy after presenting its bleakest season ever, where "True Detective" can be considered as a drama series while "American Horror Story" is a miniseries even though the two shows have the same basic structure, where the fourth season of "Tremé" has to be considered a miniseries because it didn't produce enough episodes to qualify elsewhere, where voters are asked to consider what Jim Parsons does on "Big Bang Theory" in the same context of what Louis C.K. does as an actor on "Louie." It is an impossible job, really. Even TV critics whose sole job is to watch this »

How many different characters does Tatiana Maslany have to play to score an Emmy nomination?
The Orphan Black star’s absence from the 2014 Emmy nominations list was just one of the oversights that had fans howling Thursday morning.
And yet, overall, there were plenty of reasons for TV fans to get excited. HBO’s fan-favorite Game of Thrones led with 19 nominations, while FX’s outstanding newcomer Fargo was right behind with 18. HBO’s new comedy Silicon Valley broke into the best comedy ranks, while fellow HBO newcomer True Detective was honored for best drama. Plus there were first-time noms for »

Things are only going to get more tense on USA’s Suits as Mike continues to battle Harvey (and uses Louis in the process—see a sneak peek of this week’s episode below). But Harvey has another opponent on the horizon. Justified’s Neal McDonough makes his debut on the show in the July 9 episode as SEC bulldog Sean Cahill. He’ll face-off with Jessica and Jeff Malone first, but as McDonough tells EW, it’ll be high noon with Harvey sooner or later.

Love will be playing Ms. Harrison, the pre-school teacher of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) son, Abel. Her character will take a special interest in Abel, who will probably be in serious need of some extra love and care after Tara’s (Maggie Siff) death. Abel’s biological mother, Wendy (Drea de Matteo), will presumably be back in the picture and may not be interested in competing with another female for her son’s attention.
Although Love has been in the news more for her shocking life choices than anything else over the years, the former “Hole” front-woman isn’t new to acting. She starred in Man on the Moon opposite Jim Carrey and earned »
