Unfortunately, Dean finds this information out the hard way after he »

Next month, NBC will deliver The Slap heard ’round the world — and, according to the miniseries’ stars, it may just spark an important debate.
“It’s a very interesting cultural exploration of the changing face of how to treat a human being,” star Uma Thurman said Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.
Based on a 2010 novel and Australia’s original 2011 series, The Slap stars Zachary Quinto (American Horror Story) as Harry, who sparks a family conflict when he slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. »
NBC’s upcoming drama “Allegiance” — which premieres Feb. 5 — centers around a seemingly normal American family whose parents are secretly Russian spies. If that sounds a lot like FX’s “The Americans” to you, you’re not alone. But the cast of the show and executive producer George Nolfi did their best to distance their show from the FX offering during the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena on Friday.
“Watch one or two episodes, and I think it’s pretty clear that we’re going in a very different direction,” Nolfi offered. “This is fundamentally a family drama about »

Danish star tells of her return to the screen in an all-star murder mystery – and her acclaimed recent stage role
It is four years since Sofie Gråbøl became a familiar face – and jumper – on British television. As Danish police detective Sarah Lund, she was soon almost as famous for thwarting the Nordic chill with her thick black-and-white knitwear as for tracking the elusive murderer in BBC4 series The Killing.
Now Gråbøl is returning to British television screens, and this time she will be speaking English. But when she appears at the end of this month as Hildur Odegard in the first episode of epic thriller Fortitude, she will have more need than ever for warm clothing. The 12-part murder mystery is set in the Arctic circle.

Yesterday, Fargo made some huge casting announcements for its second season. The FX anthology series, which had already snagged Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst for lead roles in Season 2, has now cast a trio talented actors to join them, as it is official that Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, and Jean Smart will be playing major characters. Wilson will star as the younger Lou Solverson (who was originally played by Keith Carradine in Fargo Season 1), “a clean cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife and father to four-year-old Molly.” (I’m a big fan of Wilson but, like Hitfix’s Dan Feinberg, I’m really disappointed that Fargo didn’t go with The Killing‘s Joel Kinnaman.) Meanwhile, Danson will play Hank Larsson, “the Sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable WWII vet who… »
