ITV has added yet more actors for its epic retelling of the Beowulf tale.

Game of Thrones actor David Bradley will play tribe leader Gorrik in the drama, while Ace Bhatti (Black Work) will appear as councillor Harken.

Former Road Wars star Lee Boardman will also have an appearance, along with Joe Sims (Broadchurch) and Gregory Fitoussi (Mr Selfridge).

William Hurt, Kieran Bew, Joanne Whalley, Ed Speleers and David Harewood have already been announced to have starring roles in the 13-part drama from Strike Back's James Dormer.

Beowulf is a reimagining of the classic poem, and is set in the mythical Shield Lands, a dangerous place populated by both humans and fantastical creatures.

The series will air on ITV in 2016, and is currently being shot in North East England. »

The Player Boss Addresses NBC Drama's 'Ridiculous' Premise

13 August 2015 5:38 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The producers of The Player are well aware that the upcoming NBC drama is, well, not exactly realistic. But don’t say that like it’s a negative,  thank you very much.

“Ridiculous is a valid artistic choice!” creator John Rogers (The Librarians, Leverage) happily replied after a critic threw out the adjective to describe the outré premise — a former military operative-turned-security expert (played by Strike Back‘s Philip Winchester)  is drawn into a shady organization that gambles on crime.

Blindspot Ep on Blacklist Parallels, 'Great Resolution' in Season 1

13 August 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There is an easy comparison to be made between NBC’s freshman fall drama Blindspot and the network’s staple crime series The Blacklist — and Blindspot‘s producers are totally Ok with that.

“It certainly does have some similarities with The Blacklist, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, necessarily,” executive producer Martin Gero said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We set an extraordinary amount of story from the opening frame of the show. We’ve done a tremendous amount of work to make sure we stay in business for a while. »

11 incredible TV shows that no-one is talking about: UnREAL, Rectify, more

7 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

1. Ray Donovan - David Moynihan, Editor

Airs on Sky Atlantic, Wednesdays at 9pm

We're now into the third run of the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama, and the season hasn't dipped one iota since the shocking, deadly twists of its predecessors.

Donovan is a wolfish 'problem fixer' for big-money Hollywood, but beneath the brutish exterior - all guns and grunts - it's his constant struggles with his own family's failings that form the tender heart of the show. Viewers are voyeurs in the ugly reality that lies behind the glitzy mask of La, where money is the driving force for corrupt officials, hollow celebrities and violent gangsters.

Schreiber's muscular and intoxicating performance - along with magnificent scene stealing by Jon Voigt as the larger-than-life rogue grandfather Micky - powers the gripping storylines.

NBC's Blindspot Poster Spills Plenty of Ink on Jaimie Alexander

6 August 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Jaimie Alexander‘s Jane Doe has a lot to fear in NBC’s fall drama Blindspot — but a needle is apparently not one of them.

TVLine can exclusively reveal the official poster for the upcoming series, in which Alexander’s amnesiac emerges from a duffel bag in Times Square, only to have her many tattoos spark a mystery involving FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton, Strike Back).

In the image below, Jane Doe is tasked with “piecing together her past” alongside Weller, but judging by the amount of ink on her body, it won’t be easy. »

Strike Back: Legacy (Season Five) Ratings

5 August 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Thanks to some delays in production, it's taken a long time for the new season of Strike Back to make it to our TV screens. We already know that it's the final season of the action series on Cinemax so there's no worry about the action series being cancelled. Was it worth the wait? Will it bring great ratings? Stay tuned.

On the final season of Strike Back, Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) of the elite British intelligence undercover unit Section 20 set out to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. They quickly realize that what seems to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. The rest of the cast includes Robson Green, Michelle Lukes, and Milauna Jackson.

Note: This is considered the fifth season in the UK where series originates. »

'Strike Back' star Philip Winchester: 'Maybe I'm just stupid enough to enjoy it'

30 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tomorrow night at 10, Cinemax premieres the final season of "Strike Back," the rip-roaring buddy action drama about a pair of soldiers working for an elite British special forces unit. In the four seasons of its Cinemax incarnation (one season aired first in England, with an entirely different cast led by Richard Armitage), it's been a pleasure to watch: always smarter, more technically proficient, and just plain better than it ever needed to be. Now it's coming to an end, with a new season that kicks off in Thailand and features guest stars like Michelle Yeoh Dustin Clare, Adrian Paul and Will Yun Lee running into our returning heroes, straight-laced English soldier Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and his carousing American partner Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton). I've seen the first four episodes, and while there are a few narrative hiccups — some of them caused because production was disrupted and delayed by a »

2015 Pilot First Impressions: NBC’s Blindspot

27 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about CBS’ Supergirl. Next up: NBC’s Blindspot, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. The Premise: A naked woman, covered head to toe with tattoos, awakens from inside a duffel bag dropped in the middle of Time Square, with no idea of who she is. The only person who seems to have any shot at figuring out the identity of this Jane Doe is FBI Agent Kurt Weller, whose name is tattooed onto the woman’s back, dragging him and his team into this ever-growing mystery.

Walking Dead @ Comic-Con: Naked Rick, Tested Morgan, Wily Wolves

10 July 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Don’t believe everything you see: It’s good advice for The Walking Dead‘s band of survivors — and excellent advice for its fans.

Although the trailer for Season 6 — which bows Oct. 11 at 9/8c with a 90-minute episode — hints at a power struggle between Rick and Morgan, “We sometimes play with the truth in trailers,” showrunner Scott Gimple warned at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday. However, “Rick absolutely is faced with challenges to the way he does things and also including these people in the way that he does things.”

Exclusive: 'Strike Back' heroes won't go quietly in final season trailer & poster

3 July 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In this new Golden Age of TV drama, viewers don't lack for the most erudite, artful, philosophical dramas they can possibly find. But sometimes, we just want to watch stuff blow up real good, and in a way that doesn't insult our intelligences. That is where Cinemax's "Strike Back" has come in for the last few years, and the way the show will be going out when its final season debuts here on July 31. (The first few episodes have already aired in the UK.) It's an action show that's always been smarter, funnier and plain better than it needs to be, with great chemistry between leads Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton (both of whom will be headlining NBC dramas this fall), action sequences that put the best of network TV (including "Arrow") to shame and a winning mix of fun and genuine stakes. I've seen the first four episodes of the final season, »

Knights of the Round Table, meet your king.

Once Upon a Time has cast British actor Liam Garrigan (24: Live Another Day) as King Arthur, per EW.com, who as TVLine first reported will heavily recur during the first half of the ABC series’ fifth season.

King Arthur is described as a “good and just ruler” who, beneath the surface, “is a master manipulator who can carry a grudge to the grave, and maybe beyond.” He harbors an “eternal burning love” for the yet-to-be-cast Guinevere that can lean toward being a bit controlling.
