Revolution season 2 picks up three months after the nukes took out American cities, devastated the militia, and the people at the Tower dispersed to various locations. It's a darker and grittier world and show when it returns.
"The Blacklist," NBC's new drama starring James Spader as a master criminal helping the FBI, is getting some impressive guest stars in the first season. Isabella Rossellini, Robert Knepper and Jane Alexander are all set to appear in early episodes as adversaries for Spader's Red Reddington.
Although there is no word yet on a specific episode, film legend Isabella Rossellini will appear early in the season as Floriana Campo. According to TheWrap.com, Floriana is an activist trying to end human and sex trafficking. When she becomes the target of an assassin called The Freelancer, Red and the FBI get involved. This will be particularly tough since The Freelancer disguises his killings as random accidents.
Robert Knepper has been Blacklisted by NBC.
The former Cult and Prison Break star - who will be a regular on TNT's Mob City - will guest star on Episode 5 of the new NBC drama, coming on board as the criminal at the center of an FBI investigation. TV Line first reported this piece of casting news.
The Blacklist is generating strong critical buzz and premieres on Monday. It features James Spader as Red Reddington, one of the world's Most Wanted, who ends up helping agent Elizabeth Keene (Megan Boone) track down those even more wanted than he is.

It looks like Matt Davis is going to be spending a little time away from The CW after Cult’s less than stellar performance – okay it was pretty awful. The former Vampire Diairies star is a great addition to any cast, but there was nothing that could’ve been done to save Cult. So now Davis is looking for something with a little more instant gratification – my words – and has landed on CSI, the long running CBS crime procedural that just won’t die. I’m starting to think CSI is a vampire, in which case Davis is the perfect man for the job, having played a vampire hunter for several years.
Season 14 is a big one for CSI and will see the show hitting its 300th episode, a huge milestone and one that should be met with applause regardless of your personal taste in a series. Getting to even a 100 episodes is hard enough, »

Davis will play the son of a fireman, according to TVLine. Outwardly, the character is smart, athletic and competitive. Underneath all that, however, Davis' character is something of a loner, described as having "the soul of a poet and the mind of a mathematician."
That should be interesting.
The role will first come on to "CSI" in a late-October episode, and the show has not yet released the number of episodes in which Davis is set to appear.
Once known as the rich boy who dumped Reese Witherspoon in "Legally Blonde," Davis achieved TV immortality as vampire-hunter-turned-reluctant-guardian-turned-vampire in the first three seasons of "The Vampire Diaries." His character met a tragic end before the fourth season (although Davis has reappeared briefly in ghostly form »
CSI is resurrecting Alaric.

Davis, last seen in The CW’s short-lived Cult, will play a smart, athletic and competitive son of a decorated fireman. While on the surface outgoing, he is deep down a bit of a loner, with the soul of a poet and the mind of a mathematician.
His first episode airs in late October.

Just before its Toronto Film Festival debut next Thursday, Magnolia Pictures has acquired Us rights to "The Right Kind of Wrong," a romantic comedy directed by Jeremiah Chechik ("National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation," "Benny & Joon"). "'The Right is Wrong' is a lovely, well-directed crowdpleaser, and its winning cast shines,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Ryan Kwanten especially shows a new side of himself that his fans will appreciate.” The film is stars Ryan Kwanten ("True Blood") as a sad sack writer-dishwater whose ex-wife has detailed his many shortcomings on her well-read blog “Why You Suck." When he meets Colette (Sara Canning, "The Vampire Diaries") she is about to get married. The film was produced by Robert Lantos ("Barney’s Version"). Megan Martin ("Cult") adapted the screenplay from Tim Sandlin’s novel "Sex and Sunsets." Also producing is Ari Lantos ("Stage Fright"), and Mark Musselman ("Being »

The supporting cast is pretty standard, a who's who of genre faces: Tony Todd, Danielle Harris, Tom Sizemore, Bill Mosely, Sydney Tamiia Poitier (Grindhouse), Sarah Habel (Hostel III), Joseph Pilato (the original Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead), and Alona Tal (Cult). But the male lead, starring opposite Danielle Harris, is a Bollywood star named R. Madhavan in what appears to be his first American film. Interesting, but not too weird. The director and co-writer is Zebediah De Soto, in his feature film debut. This is also the first script from the two other credited screenwriters, Warren Davis II and David Reuben Schwartz.
But then it gets downright strange. The story is no longer set in a cemetery, but a NYC apartment building, where »

TV show description:
Jeff Sefton (Matt Davis), an investigative journalist, has learned to live with his younger brother Nate's relentless string of obsessions. Jeff raised Nate since the death of their parents. Nate's latest rant is that a hit TV show, Cult, intends to harm him. When his brother mysteriously disappears however, Jeff starts to take Nate's paranoia even more seriously. In the process, he uncovers the dark underworld of the Cult TV show and its rabid fans.
The fictitious version of Cult is centered on the cat-and-mouse game between a charismatic cult leader and the detective »
As a series, "Cult" was pretty much Doa. After being moved to a different night halfway through its freshman run, its cancelation was all but expected. But since the first season had already been filmed, The CW decided to burn off the remaining six episodes to give fans some closure, ending on Friday night (July 12) with the series finale, "Executive Producer Steven Rae." So did all our questions get answered?
Not even slightly. Sure, Nate was finally reunited with his brother Jeff after an entire season apart, but he was still obsessed with finding out the truth about the show within the show, "Cult." They found Philip's father's corpse in the basement of the Moon Hill house, and he had clearly been dead for a long time. The Moon Hill parents, all dead and buried in the walls of the the St. Clare Church, were killed by a group called the Erasmus. »

The Huxtables of "The Cosby Show" lived on in "A Different World," the NBC comedy's 1987 spinoff that followed Cliff (Bill Cosby) and Clair's (Phylicia Rashad) daughter Denise (Lisa Bonet) to the fictional historically black Hillman College.
"A Different World" went on for six seasons (though it saw Bonet, Marisa Tomei and Loretta DeVine depart after its debut season) and ended on July 9, 1993, 20 years ago today. Despite the shake-up, the show lived on with leading man Dwayne Wayne (Kadeem Hardison) and his flip-up glasses and Whitley Gilbert (Jasmine Guy) and her whiny southern drawl.
The series ended with Dwayne and Whitley getting married and announcing that they were expecting their first child in the finale. When asked where they thought the happy couple would be now, Guy told Essence in late 2012, "I think they’d still be married. I think they’d have a son and he’d be in early »
