Kiele Sanchez knows if you're literally going to sweat out doing a series, it's good if your spouse is another actor who understands.
The former co-star of "Lost" and "Related" starts her fourth season as nurse Callie Cargill -- long-distance girlfriend and potential fiancee of Florida police detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore) -- on the A&E mystery series "The Glades" Monday, May 27. Sanchez married "Friday Night Lights" alum Zach Gilford at the very end of 2012, and she's grateful he knows the business ... and can handle hot temperatures.
"It absolutely helps," the pleasant Sanchez confirms to Zap2it. "Both of us have a very similar outlook. As passionate as we are about our jobs and as ambitious as we are about our careers, it's not going to change how we feel about ourselves. It goes so up-and-down, we don't like to drink the Kool-Aid, as I like to say."
I have yet to get to theatres to see 42, but apparently its star Chadwick Boseman is doing something right, besides having an awesome name. Boseman is reportedly at the top of the shortlist to play Marvel’s Black Panther – a part of the studio’s Phase Three plans.
This is just a rumor as yet – no deals are signed, no offers officially made, but it is as close as we have yet come to getting a Black Panther movie. The film has been rumored and hinted at for a while now, but this is really the first I’ve heard of anyone being seriously considered as a lead. What with all the new Marvels coming up the pipeline (Thor 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers 2, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Iron Man 23 or whatever), and the casting rumors that swirl around the ones in pre-production, I keep missing stories. »

Taxi alum Marilu Henner will appear in the May 9 season finale of Two and a Half Men as one bodacious grandma. We’ve been following those developments very closely only to learn this week that the actress is also bound for a vacation in The Glades.
TVLine confirmed that the Celebrity Apprentice fav has signed on for a rather important guest-starring arc. Henner is scheduled to appear in at least three episodes of A&E’s The Glades to portray Joan Longworth, Jim’s mother. Detective Jim Longworth is of course acted by the crime drama’s star, Matt Passmore.
Season 3 of The Glades wrapped up last August, so in case I failed to mention it, all this casting goodness is happening for the upcoming fourth season. During the Season 3 cliffhanger, »

TNT has ordered six episodes of Life Flight (working title), a docu-drama that follows air-ambulance teams as they race to save lives. The series, slated to launch in early 2014, goes behind the scenes with the teams from Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, where the Life Flight service was born, and centers on the split-second decisions teams have to make while trying to perform life-saving procedures both on the ground and hundreds of feet in the air. The series also will focus on the hospital’s emergency room, where doctors, nurses and trauma surgeons do everything they can to save each patient brought in. Fox Television Studios and Boardwalk Entertainment Group produce Life Flight, with Gary A. Randall (Saving Grace, The Glades), Timothy Scott Bogart and Brad Bogart executive producers. »

Two new actresses have been added to the upcoming sixth season of HBO's True Blood.
Amelia Rose Blaire will play Willa Burrell, daughter of the governor of Louisiana. The two do not see eye-to-eye on the vampire rights issue (I have to assume she is "for.") Blaire's few credits have been mostly guest roles on shows like Grimm, 90210, Touch, and The Glades.
Jurnee Smollett will play Nicole Wright, an idealist who is always looking to do what is right. Smollett's credits include Eve's Bayou, Roll Bounce, and Friday Night Lights. Smollett will join as a regular, while Blaire will be a recurring character with the option to become a regular.

American Mary (DVD/Blu-ray)
One of the year’s most horrific highlights, American Mary tells the story of broke student Mary Mason (Katharine Isabelle) who grows disenchanted with medical school and the doctors she once idolised. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the gruesome world of underground surgeries but soon finds they leave more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele… Smart, sexy, funny and utterly gorgeous to look at, American Mary features a standout lead performance from horror icon Katherine (Ginger Snaps) Isabelle, »

The Glades: The Complete First Season
“Some say I don’t play well with others. I was a damned good detective in Chicago until a disagreement with my boss encouraged me to pack it up and make a change. So I put the Windy City in my rear view and headed to the Sunshine State to kick back, play some golf, work on my tan, maybe write the occasional speeding ticket. Yeah, well, that didn’t work out.”
The Glades is the latest TV show from prolific producer Clifton Campbell, a man who has been behind some of my favourite TV shows over the years – White Collar, Profiler and Wiseguy – and this show follows in very similar “cop show” traditions. The series is just quirky enough to compete with USA Network shows such as Psych and Burn Notice, »
