If you think you've seen scum and villainy on The Walking Dead before, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Magic City) was recently cast in a major role on the series: Negan. The man is a major villain in the comic-book series, and though we can't be sure how closely the show will follow the comics, we can assume he's still a major bad guy. If you're unfamiliar with the character, here's what you need to know about him. Warning: comic-book spoilers follow! He is the leader of a group called the Saviors. Negan is an evil, king-like figure to a group of survivors called the Saviors. Think of them as the mob, and Negan as a psychotic Al Capone. They offer protection to other communities in the area in exchange for resources, but if they lapse on a payment, the Saviors will basically ruin them. He has an infamously brutal weapon. »

The United States of America are the occupied states of America in Amazon’s newest drama The Man in the High Castle, which uses Philip K. Dick’s 1962 novel as a jumping-off point as it asks: What if the Allied Forces hadn’t won World War II?
In a moment, we’ll want to hear what you think of the series’ premiere. But first, a brief recap:
The series opens in 1962, 17 years after America and its allies were bested by Germany and Japan in the Second World War. In New York City — part of the “Greater Nazi Reich” — we’re »
An auction house certainly sounds like a logical setting for big money, sex and larceny, which doesn’t prevent Crackle’s first full-length scripted drama series, “The Art of More,” from coming across as strangely inert. A couple of recognizable stars (Dennis Quaid, who doubles as a producer, and Kate Bosworth) have been cast as a promotional enticement, but not in particularly inspired roles, while the central figure is so tangled in cliches, it’s a wonder he can stumble from scene to scene. Everyone wants to get into the premium-drama game, it seems, but after watching six episodes, “More” is less.
Christian Cooke (“Magic City”) stars as Graham Connor, an Iraq war vet who began trafficking in stolen artifacts, and now in roundabout fashion has parlayed that into a junior position at Parke-Mason, a high-class auction house. Cocky and eager to advance, he’s courting a billionaire real-estate tycoon »

If you were among the legions of The Princess Bride fans crushed when Cary Elwes postponed recent speaking engagements tied to the 1987 film and the book he wrote about his time on the set, take heart. You can spend even more time with the dashing Brit thanks to one reason he was otherwise occupied — the smart and sexy new Crackle original series The Art of More. More follows Army vet Graham Connor (Magic City’s Christian Cooke), a go-getter Brooklynite who leverages a lifelong passion for art and connections to smuggling rings forged as he served in Iraq into a job … Continue reading →

Even the best attorneys don't go it alone. There are paralegals, junior associates and -- on TV, at least -- very cool investigators. With Kalinda Sharma in the wind, Alicia Florrick could sure use a sharp set of eyes on the street. In this episode, she may have found her man. Unless Diane gets to him first, that is.
In one of the most eagerly-awaited cast additions of the fall season, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, formerly of Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural and Magic City, charms Alicia as Pi Jason Crouse. But when Diane ups the ante, will he follow his instincts instead of his wallet? Let's find out, shall we?
The Good Wife's got a new man. Jeffrey Dean Morgan has joined the CBS legal drama as Jason Crouse, a straight-shooting, unflappable investigator who enters Alicia Florrick's (Julianna Margulies) life when she needs him the most. He's basically the opposite of Kalinda, except when it comes to wanting to help Alicia. For Morgan, a veteran of Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural and Magic City who admitted to never having seen the show before being approached to join it, The Good Wife's allure had a lot to do with series star Julianna Margulies. "I think just the opportunity to work with this cast and Juliana in particular was enough for me to sign on," he said. The role was a mystery when he took »

Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) plays the role of Roxanna Whitney, daughter of the CEO of one of the two warring auction houses—and a leading account executive.

In "The Godfather," Rocco played casino owner Moe Green. In a 2012 interview, the actor said that the role was "without a doubt, my biggest ticket anywhere. I mean that literally." Rocco has appeared in "Magic City," "Episodes," "The Simpsons," "The Facts of Life," "Batman," "Get Shorty," "A Bug's Life," "The Wedding Planner," "Smokin' Aces" and countless other projects. He won an Emmy in 1990 for best supporting actor in a comedy series for "The Famous Teddy Z." »
Actor Alex Rocco, best known for playing mobster Moe Green in the 1972 classic The Godfather, passed away on Saturday in his Studio City, California home at the age of 79. The actor's stepson, Sean Doyle, confirmed to The Los Angeles Times that the actor passed away after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer. The actor's long career spanned 50 years, with over 150 TV and film credits.
Alex Rocco was born Alessandro Federico Petricone Jr. in Boston, who caught the acting bug at the age of 30, when he took an acting class to meet women. After moving to Los Angeles, he took a class taught by Leonard Nimoy, who promptly kicked him out because he couldn't understand his thick Boston accent. He then enrolled in a speech class which transformed his Boston accent with a New York accent, which Leonard Nimoy said he could work with. He made his acting debut with the 1965 Russ Meyer film Motorpsycho! »
Rocco's daughter, Jennifer Rocco, revealed the actor's passing in a series of Facebook posts, writing that her father passed away on July 18 after a long, private battle with cancer. Jennifer Rocco thanked his fans for their support, writing, "I know he is watching over us."
Alex Rocco's prolific career spanned decades, but the actor became synonymous with "The Godfather," the 1972 Oscar-winning film in which he played casino owner Moe Greene. In a 2012 interview with The A.V. Club, Rocco said that that role was "without a doubt, my biggest ticket anywhere. I mean that literally."
Rocco parlayed that fame into a lengthy, eclectic resume in both film and television. He starred most recently on Starz series "Magic City," "Episodes," and "Maron," and also appeared on shows including "The Simpsons," "The Facts of Life, »
