Supernatural's Richard Speight, Jr. on the Show's Wackiest Episode Yet

2 December 2015 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Supernatural has crafted a universe where fairies attack and Dorothy of Oz exists, but this may be the show’s wackiest scenario yet: Sam’s childhood imaginary friend isn’t all that imaginary — and he needs the Winchesters’ help!

In tonight’s episode (The CW, 9/8c), the aforementioned pal, Sully (played by Mr. Sunshine‘s Nate Torrence), seeks out Sam and Dean when things get bloody in his world.

‘Supernatural’ Casts ‘Hello Ladies’ Star for Surreal Guest Role

25 September 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) will get a blast from the past in “Supernatural’s” upcoming 11th season. The CW’s enduring horror series has cast Nate Torrence as Sully, Sam’s imaginary friend from childhood, Variety has learned exclusively.

Sully appears in episode 1108, titled “Just My Imagination,” because he needs Sam and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) help. The episode will be directed by “Supernatural” alum Richard Speight Jr., who memorably played the angel Gabriel (and moonlighted as The Trickster) in various episodes between seasons two and nine. Speight and fellow “Supernatural” fan favorite Rob Benedict also moderated the show’s 2015 panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and are currently working on a crowdfunded webseries called “Kings of Con” which raised almost $300,000 earlier this year.

Torrence was most recently seen in Fox’s midseason comedy “Weird Loners,” and previously appeared on HBO’s “Hello Ladies,” ABC’s “Mr. Sunshine” and NBC’s »

Shaft Remake In The Works With Black-ish Creator

29 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With its Vacation remake out this Friday, New Line is already reaching back to the ’70s to dust off another title. Shaft, the cult 1971 Blaxploitation flick starring Richard Roundtree, is being remade with a new script from Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow, an executive producer-writer on ABC’s The Goldbergs.

John Davis, who produced The Man From U.N.C.L.E. as well as the upcoming Victor Frankenstein, will produce this new take alongside Ira Napoliello.

The plan is for Shaft to adhere to the action roots of the original while adopting a comedic tone – perhaps in line with Sony’s 21 Jump Street remakes.

The original film centered on a private detective (Roundtree) who was hired to find a missing girl in Harlem. It attracted praise and criticism for its place in the Blaxploitation genre – though films like Shaft seemed to empower black individuals and afford black actors the opportunities to »

‘Shaft’ Remake Gears Up With ‘Black-ish’ Creator

28 July 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New Line’s reboot of the “Shaft” franchise is gaining traction with a pair of writers on board — “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris and “The Goldbergs” executive producer Alex Barnow.

New Line began developing a new “Shaft” earlier this year by acquiring the remake rights and setting up the latest version with producer John Davis.

MGM’s 1971 blaxploitation film was based on Ernest Tidyman’s novel and directed by Gordon Parks. John Shaft was portrayed by Richard Roundtree, who navigates mob neighborhoods in New York City to find the missing daughter of a mobster.

The film was a major success at the box office, pulling in $13 million on a budget of $500,000. Isaac Hayes’ “Theme from Shaft” won the Academy Award for original song. Parks and Roundtree also teamed on “Shaft’s Big Score” in 1972 and “Shaft in Africa” in 1973. “Shaft” was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry »

Mr. Robot: Can the USA Network Computer Drama Hack It?

24 June 2015 8:09 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I know what it’s like to be different. I’m very different, too.”

That confession, uttered by protagonist Elliot on Mr. Robot‘s series premiere, might just be the understatement of the year.

As we quickly learn in the USA Network hacker drama, which premiered Wednesday, Elliot (Rami Malek, The War at Home) is exceedingly unique. A cybersecurity engineer by day, Elliot spends his nights as a vigilante hacker, prying into the computer files of pedophiles and cheaters who don’t want anyone to know they’re pedophiles and cheaters.

The Television of Career of Matthew Perry

29 March 2015 10:50 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you have read any of my previous work here at TVOvermind (and I hope you have), you can get a pretty good grasp of which television shows I love. One of those series is Friends, which ran on NBC from 1994-2004. I have wrote dozens of articles devoted to the series, including picking the best episodes from each season and ranking the boyfriends and girlfriends of our favorite group of six. One of the actors of the series is currently starring on a new CBS sitcom. That man is Matthew Perry, and he and Thomas Lennon are the lead characters on the remake of the classic series The Odd CoupleMatthew Perry has a career in television that spans over five decades. We decided to take a look at the 45-year-old actor’s career, which includes some highs (Friends) and some lows (Mr. Sunshine). First Role (1979) Matthew Perry would first grace the screens of… »

The Odd Couple Review – TV CBS

25 February 2015 7:13 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Rebooting The Odd Couple is a dangerous game, and adding to the mix of potential kills, Matthew Perry just can’t catch a new sit-com break.

Studio 60 should have killed, Mr. Sunshine was rather funny, and though I wasn’t a believer in Go On for a while, it got to me after a few episodes. None of them lasted two dozen episodes, but they didn’t get yanked after, let’s say, four either, so they got some chance to get moving. For whatever reason, where other Friends stars have had certain success (Joey, oddly enough, has one of the best shows on television right now), there’s a certain, “Look Dude, you’re Chandler,” vibe that seems to still be following Perry.

More importantly, there’s something very ’70s about The Odd Couple, as a play, an idea, and something we have to work with week after week. »

Review: CBS' 'The Odd Couple' remake feels even older than the source material

19 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The latest version of "The Odd Couple" will premiere tonight at 8:30 on CBS, a few weeks shy of the 50th anniversary of Felix Unger and Oscar Madison's Broadway debut. In the five decades since, Neil Simon's play has proved remarkably flexible, capable of working as a movie and a sitcom, as well as a play, with different actors as compulsive cleaner Felix and unrepentant slob Oscar, even at times change the characters' race or gender. But the CBS version is the first to suggest the concept has lost its elasticity. It feels like nothing so much as a sock that won't stay up on its own, but which you can't throw out because you've had it around forever. This time around, Matthew Perry is Oscar and Thomas Lennon is Felix. Producer Bob Daily ("Frasier," "Desperate Housewives") has made a few nods to the changing era — Oscar is now »

What’s “Odd” is new again: Matthew Perry reboots The Odd Couple for CBS

13 February 2015 9:04 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

One could excuse Matthew Perry if he feels snakebit. Since Friends disbanded in 2004, Perry has led respectable but ultimately rejected efforts in Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Mr. Sunshine and Go On. Fortunately, Perry’s latest project, a sitcom reboot of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, has a few things going for it that his previous attempts did not. It’s got a solid foundation of well-known source material from the 1968 Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau film and the 1970s Tony Randall/Jack Klugman TV series. It’s got an incredibly simple premise. And it’s on CBS, who’s giving it a plum premiere … Continue reading →

The Odd Couple Team Talks Rebooting 'Iconic, Timeless' Comedy Series

12 January 2015 11:17 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After spending 10 years in the role of Chandler Bing, Matthew Perry’s return to a multi-camera sitcom could have been daunting.

But the actor maintains that working on CBS’ The Odd Couple reboot has allowed him to check an item off the bucket list.

“It’s been a dream come true to play Oscar Madison,” Perry said Monday at the Television Critics’ Association winter press tour in Pasadena. “It’s been big shoes to fill, but we’re playing it differently.”

But that’s not to say Perry doesn’t get nervous, even after more than 200 episodes in front of a live audience on Friends. »
