According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rose will play FBI Agent Jessica Foster. One of Mike's (Aaron Tveit) superiors at his job in Washington, Jessica is described as someone who seems like the consummate bureaucrat but who tends to bend the rules when necessary.
Considering the trouble people get into at Graceland, this is likely to be a very handy skill.
Two other roles -- one recurring and one to guest-star -- have also been cast for Season 2. Brianna Brown ("General Hospital") will recur as Kelly Badillo, the wife of murdered Juan Badillo (Mike's former handler, killed by Briggs in Season 1). Benito Martinez ("The Shield") will also appear in the new season, guest starring as Alfredo Armas, the head of the nefarious Caza Cartel.

Stephen King properties continue to prosper on the small screen (see: Haven, Under the Dome), even as multiple film adaptations – based on the iconic pop horror/suspense novelist’s work – have started to make their way down the pipeline. Indeed, in the past few months, we’ve seen (among other developments) the Pet Sematary remake enlist a new director, Warner Bros. actively scouting for a filmmaker to helm The Stand, and the Cell movie adaptation finishing up its casting in order to begin production this year.
One King project that we haven’t reported on since 2012 is It, a big-screen treatment of King’s hefty best-selling novel, published in 1986 and made into a ...

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

10. Some Like It Hot (1959)
What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »

One of the most prolific writers of the past few decades, Stephen King has never been a stranger to television. In fact, countless novels and short stories in the writer’s catalog have been adapted for the small screen since the late 1970s. However, it does seem as if King’s work is experiencing a bit of a resurgence on television.
While many television adaptations of King’s work have opted to format his novels into mini-series, networks have become increasingly interested in transforming his stories into full-fledged series. USA’s The Dead Zone – which ran from 2002 to 2007 – is one fairly recent example of this trend, but newer projects like CBS’s Under the Dome and Syfy’s Haven indicate that King’s TV presence may be on ...

Michael B. Jordan had a breakthrough 2013, thanks to his starring role as Oscar Grant III in Fruitvale Station. Prior to his acclaimed performance, he endeared himself to television audiences with arcs on The Wire, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. He’s rumored to be in talks for Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot as well as Lee Daniels‘ Richard Pryor biopic. But first, he’s making his comedic debut in That Awkward Moment, alongside pals Miles Teller and Zac Efron. Tearjerkers, superheroes, comedic legends–is there anything Mbj can’t do?
We’ve been fans of the 26-year-old Newark, New Jersey native since he had braids and was afraid of crickets as West Baltimore resident Wallace on The Wire. For those of you who are still unfamiliar (and in about 12 hours you’ll have no excuse to continue to be so) with the talented actor, use this guide to get yourselves better acquainted. »

"Haven" hasn't seen the Colorado Kid, aka James Cogan, since he disappeared with the barn in the Season 3 finale. But the young man is far from forgotten on the show and many have wondered if he might return.
Guess what? Steve Lund, the actor who played James on "Haven," wonders the same thing. When Zap2it talked to Lund about his new show, "Bitten," recently, he dropped a few hints about whether or not the Colorado Kid might ever return.
Alas, the answer is a solid maybe. It is not, however, for lack of interest or trying on Lund's part. "I've been trying with all of my might to get back on 'Haven.' I know there are some people that want to see the Colorado Kid back on the show," Lund explains in the interview. "[Executive producer] Shawn Piller came a couple of times to visit our set when he was in Toronto. »

You’ve got to love a show that gets stronger over time… or at least gets higher ratings, and since that’s exactly the case with Syfy‘s Haven, fans can relax for quite a while.

"Haven" has been renewed by Syfy. But there's more -- the cable network has renewed the Stephen King-inspired show for a split season of 26 episodes airing in 2014 and 2015, which is double the normal amount of episodes "Haven" normally has per season.
Season 5 of "Haven" is planned to premiere in the fall of 2014, when 13 episodes will air. The final 13 episodes of the season will follow in 2015. There is no word as to whether these will be the last episodes of the series or not.
Starring Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour, "Haven" follows the story of a small town in Maine where residents have strange and destructive powers. The recent Season 4 ended in December 2013 with a major cliffhanger that left the future of Rose's character, Audrey Parker, in doubt. Fans will definitely be relieved to know that the storyline will be resolved.

"Bitten" is one of Syfy's newest series, following the lives of modern-day werewolves. While speaking with Zap2it, Steve Lund talks about playing the fun-loving werewolf Nick Sorrentino and about reuniting with his former "Haven" co-star, Laura Vandervoort ("Smallville," "V") on the show.
Zap2it: How would you describe Nick?
Steve Lund: He's the best! He's the man! [laughs] Nick's a very fun character. He's a fun-loving guy who I'd describe as enjoying the fruits of nature. He's maybe not taken as seriously as some of the other werewolves, but he's Ok with that.
He knows his role within the pack. My grandfather was the former Pack Alpha before Jeremy, and my father is the sort of book-handler or logistics-coordinator, if you will, for the pack. So there's a long line of werewolves from which I am a descendant. I've lived a pretty privileged life. And I've been blessed by »
Syfy launches its new werewolf series "Bitten" tonight, and Steve Lund, who portrays flirtatious and playful werewolf Nick Sorrento, sat down with Dread Central to talk about his character, his co-stars, and what's in store for audiences. We have the details along with a new trailer!
We asked him to briefly describe the show and Nick. "[It] is based on the Canadian novel series Women of the Otherworld, written by Kelley Armstrong, who is a Toronto-based novelist," Lund said. "The story centers around the only non-male werewolf, Elena Michaels, and follows her through her battle between her werewolf life and her desire to have a normal human life."
"My character is Nick Sorrentino, who is one of the resident werewolves at the werewolf headquarters, Stonehaven, and my family has been in the werewolf game for generations. My grandfather was a former pack alpha, and my father is sort of the accountant for the group. »
