After Thursday night’s drama-filled third season finale of Scandal, Scott Foley (a.k.a. Jake Ballard) took some time to participate in a Reddit Ama. The chat mainly consisted of eager Gladiators wanting answers to their biggest fan questions, but there were also some personal ones (boxers or briefs?) and inquiries about his stint on another Shonda Rhimes soap (Grey’s Anatomy) as well his breakthrough role as Noel Crane on Felicity.

Below are nine things we learned from the conversation:

He prefers Scandal over his stint on Grey’s Anatomy. “Ooh wow. For me, more satisfying to film is Scandal. »

Jessica Brown Findlay talks Jamaica Inn: 'I worried I'd offend people'

18 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jessica Brown Findlay has admitted that she feared "annoy[ing] half the country" with her new role in BBC One's Jamaica Inn.

The Downton Abbey actress adopts a Cornish accent to play heroine Mary in the three-part adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's novel.

"It was hard at first, because it's an accent you don't hear that often," Brown Findlay said. "If it's American, you're bombarded by certain sounds all the time.

"But [with this] you think, 'God, how does it actually sound?' -- apart from going offensive country farmer and just annoy[ing] half the country? I don't want to do that.

"You can forget about that when you're on set and [the accent] just sort of happens - not to say it's perfect."

Jamaica Inn also stars Matthew McNulty (Misfits), Ben Daniels (House of Cards) and recent BAFTA nominee Sean Harris.

"He's extraordinary," Brown Findlay said of Harris, who plays Mary's menacing uncle Joss. »

15 April 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.

“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

15 April 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

TV Review: 'Game of Thrones' Pays Out For Better and For Worse in 'The Lion and the Rose'

13 April 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you have not watched "The Lion and the Rose" -- the second episode of "Game of Thrones" season four -- be warned: spoilers to follow. Rejoice! Rejoice! The king is dead!  Ah, if only it were that simple. In true "Game of Thrones" fashion, George R.R. Martin -- who wrote Sunday's episode, "The Lion and the Rose" -- cannot give us even a minute of uninterrupted happiness. Though I didn't count the seconds from when I realized the despised King Joffrey's reign was about to come to a most welcome end and when Cersei pointed at the unlucky in love, unlucky in life Tyrion, screaming he be taken away, I don't think a full 60 seconds was given to properly praise the death of the most despicable television character since Marissa Cooper on "The O.C."

8 April 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Shirley MacLaine is headed to Ryan Murphy-ville — but, sadly, it’s not American Horror Story.

Instead, the Oscar-winner (who was most recently seen on television strutting around Downton Abbey) will have a multi-episode arc on Glee, EW has confirmed. TVLine, which first reported the news, says she’ll portray a New York socialite intent on turning Blaine (Darren Criss) into a superstar. (I mean, someone has to go up against Rachel for Broadway supremacy…)

Her first episode is slated to air later this month. Glee recently saw its episode order this season cut from 22 to 20, but the show will return for a final, »
