Since the close of Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff has been one of the most active of the cult classic’s illustrious alumni. She had a long run on 24, of course, but she’s also had significant multi-episode roles in CSI and Robot Chicken, as well as her central role in the A&E series Longmire. But her latest project is one she feels a different kind of passion for, and not just because she’s a producer. Sexy Evil Genius (out today on DVD, VOD, and digital download) was written by Scott Lew, the development-executive-turned-screenwriter who is waging a brave battle with Als. »
Sexy Evil Genius stars Katee Sackhoff as a psychotic ex and a woman scorned, who brings those exes together for a dinner at a Los Angeles bar. Lionsgate Home Entertainment is bringing the film to DVD, digital download, and On Demand on April 9, and to preview the giddily vengeful flick, we have an exclusive clip from the film to share with fans. Katee Sackhoff is currently playing a fairly stable female cop personality on A&E.s Longmire, so it.s been rather easy to forget her strengths actually lie in characters with complicated personalities and unusual quirks. In the clip, we see her start out as a seemingly bubbly individual and while her attitude never really changes, by the end of the segment, she.s said some pretty horrifying stuff about her self and some of the others at the table. Also in the clip, some prominent acting names, »
Gerald McRaney may be in his mid-60s, but he hasn't slowed down a bit. After terrifying the tarnished souls of HBO's "Deadwood" as murderous tycoon George Hearst, the "Major Dad" star went on to be a regular on CBS' "Jericho" and NBC's short-lived "Undercovers," and has appeared in USA's "Fairly Legal," A&E's "Longmire," Netflix's new "House of Cards" and FX's "Justified" -- where he was last seen on Feb. 12 having a blowtorch almost applied to his butchered leg.
"I don't think I bled out," McRaney tells Zap2it over lunch in Sherman Oaks, Calif. "The guy did, in fact, cauterize the wound."
McRaney also played Capt. Patrick Murphy in several episodes of CBS' romantic comedy "Mike & Molly," which has a strange connection to Western drama "Deadwood" (which also starred Timothy Olyphant and Jim Beaver of "Justified").
"The people who produce 'Mike & Molly,'" he says, over lunch in Sherman Oaks, »

"She's a Nordic bounty hunter and her name is Dahl," Sackhoff said. "It's so funny - when I got the role, I told [director] David Twohy that Dahl was my grandmother's maiden name - it all works out!"
Sackhoff added that Dahl is "probably the toughest character I've ever played": "The characters I've played have always been tough, but they've also been very emotional and a little unstable!
"This character is just incredibly tough. I'm really excited. It's a dream come true. I've been a fan of Vin and the Riddick series for as long as I can remember. I was jumping up »

Weller now plays the double amputee out to exact revenge for the loss of his hands ... with McGarrett's (Alex O'Loughlin) late father among those he holds responsible, making McGarrett a target.

Once Upon A Time Season 2 bringing on Jack from the Beanstalk in ep 13,new spoiler. According to a new report from TV Line, the official press release for "Once Upon A Time," recently revealed that Jack from the classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" fairytale is going to show up in episode 13,and Jack is actually going to be a female in their version as they've cast CW Smallville alum Cassidy Freeman to play the role. So,it should be quite interesting to see a female version of Jack. Cassidy's acting resume includes roles in CSI: NYC, The Playboy Club ,and CW's The Vampire Diaries. She's currently costarring on the A&E drama Longmire, which will return with Season 2 this summer. In related news, episode 13 will also feature the crazy fairytale giant,being brought into Storybrooke totally wreck stuff up after evil Cora brings him over. It's definitely going to be intense. »
Both Smallville and Once Upon a Time have this in common, they call a Vancouver set home. Of course, the Superman-inspired series has been cancelled, but it is probably nice for Freeman to return to Canada for some filming.
The Feb. 10 episode of the sophomore magical drama is titled “Tiny” and will introduce Freeman in a guest-starring role. “Jack” will figure into the plot and we all assume that moniker may just have a little something to do with former Lost actor Jorge Garcia’s role as the giant.

Cassidy Freeman is about to get seriously Jack-ed up on Once Upon a Time Season 2.
The actress (Smallville, Longmire, The Vampire Diaries) will guest star on the February 10 installment of this ABC hit, coming on board as the character of Jack in "Tiny," an episode that will feature the return of Jorge Garcia as the giant with whom Emma bonded a few weeks ago.
What kind of role will this (now female) beanstalk-climber play? Fans have a couple weeks to ponder that question.

As quietly revealed the other day in ABC’s press release for the sophomore drama’s very next new outing, “Tiny” airing Feb. 10, Freeman will guest-star as “Jack” — presumably as in Jack to Lost alum Jorge Garcia’s beanstalk-guarding giant, who returns in the episode.

This is the clearest sign yet of the thaw in the companies’ once-frosty relationship — and could intensify industry concerns about whether Netflix will cannibalize ad-supported TV. Warner Bros. Television Group has agreed to license complete previous seasons of serialized dramas including Revolution, Political Animals, Longmire, 666 Park Avenue — and The Following, which debuts this month on Fox. Netflix also landed Chuck, Fringe and The West Wing. The companies say that in addition to these eight shows, Warner Bros may also make available “potential future shows.” Warner reserved the right to sell the programs into traditional syndication windows, via electronic sell-through services and on a catch-up basis for recently aired episodes. But Netflix has exclusive rights to subscription streaming. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos calls it an “unprecedented agreement” that “is making the production economics right for the continued creation of the kind of compelling serialized dramas and thrillers that our members love. »
