Random Roles: Terry Kinney on starring in everything from Oz to Thirtysomething to The Mob Doctor

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Terry Kinney is another perfect fit for Random Roles, as he’s a “hey, it’s that guy” who has been working steadily since the ’80s. The Illinois native was a founder and part of the original company of Chicago’s famed Steppenwolf Theatre, along with John Malkovich, Laurie Metcalf, and Scandal’s Jeff Perry. Most viewers would probably recognize him from Oz, but you’ve also seen him in everything from The Firm to The Good Wife to yes, The Mob Doctor. On Tuesday, November 15, Kinney will debut in TNT’s Good Behavior, a surprisingly effective noir-esque series from the creators of Wayward Pines, in which Michelle Dockery plays a drug addict on the ...

‘Supergirl’ Casts Lesbian Special Crimes Investigator Maggie Sawyer

‘Supergirl’ Casts Lesbian Special Crimes Investigator Maggie Sawyer
The superhero drama series “Supergirl” has found a new cast member. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series has picked Floriana Lima for the regular role of Maggie Sawyer, the gay DC Comics character who appeared in both the “Superman” and “Batman” comics series. The addition of Maggie Sawyer to the series continues executive producer Greg Berlanti’s mission to make established properties more inclusive, often by explicitly changing the ethnicity and sexuality of characters. In an interview with THR earlier this year, “I wanted to contemporize these comics that I loved growing up and have them reflect the society that we live in now. It’s still about working in some of those very real qualities so that everyone feels represented.”

Interview: Zach Gilford on the World in ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

Chicago – Zach Gilford is a familiar face to fans of the TV series “Friday Night Lights,” where he portrayed Matt Saracen. The actor grew up around Chicago in Evanston, Ill., and has risen through the ranks of acting in his new home of Los Angeles. He currently is featured in the sequel film, “The Purge: Anarchy.”

The Purge: Anarchy” takes up the premise of the first film, which presupposes a near future America in which laws are suspended for one night a year, allowing all aggressions, crimes and firearms to be practiced with abandon. Zach Gilford portrays Shane, who is part of a couple – his real-life wife Kiele Sanchez is Liz, his other half – that are accidentally thrust into the Purge night with no protection, and hooks up with a armed vigilante named Leo (Frank Grillo). The sequel ups the ante of the first film, with more social commentary and fire power.

Review: 'The Americans' - 'Stealth'

  • Hitfix
Review: 'The Americans' - 'Stealth'
A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as the FBI has its own comic books... Midway through "Stealth," Paige announces that she feels like a prisoner in her own house, and though there are only two characters in the episode who are being physically held someplace against their will — Anton as a kept man of the Kgb, Kate tied up in her apartment by Andrew Larrick — there are an awful lot of characters who are feeling like prisoners of circumstances, and/or like they're on the verge of winding up like Kate or Anton. Leaving aside Philip and Elizabeth's usual complicated feelings about their situation — which are, other than a lot of discussion about whether to let Paige go to church camp, mostly placed on hold this week to focus on the supporting cast and moving the plot along — there's an awful lot of physical and emotional confinement going on here.

'Bones' Season 9: Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo cast

"Bones" Season 9 has cast Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo to guest-star as Arastoo's mother, Deena Vaziri.

Aghdashloo will appear in an upcoming episode when Cam (Tamara Taylor) and boyfriend Arastoo Vaziri (Pej Vahdat) have dinner with Deena during the woman's visit to town, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Things get awkward quickly, of course, when Deena begins to question the couple. Will the Vaziri parents approve of their son's older girlfriend (especially since she doesn't share the same religion)?

Best known for her Academy Award-nominated role in "The House of Sand and Fog," Aghdashloo has also appeared on "Grimm," "NCIS" and "The Mob Doctor."

'Justified' Season 5: The Crowes are coming for Raylan

Season 5 of "Justified" will bring a new nemesis to Harlan for Raylan Givens to deal with -- and from the looks of a couple of early promos, Raylan will have his hands full.

The two short teasers follow the usual FX pattern of not showing any footage from the show and instead opting for eye-catching imagery. Both "Justified" videos feature crows doing bad things to Raylan's (Timothy Olyphant) signature white hat. It's a reference to the coming season's bad guys, the Crowe family -- more proficient criminal relatives of the hapless Dewey Crowe (Damon Herriman) who come north from Florida to set up shop in Harlan.

Michael Rapaport, late of "The Mob Doctor," plays the head of the Crowe family and Raylan's primary antagonist.

Take a look at the two promos below. "Justified" premieres Jan. 7 on FX.

Justified Season 5 Scoop: Michael Rapaport Cast As...

  • TVfanatic
Michael Rapaport has landed a key role on Justified Season 5.

According to TV Line, the veteran actor (My Name is Earl, Boston Public, The Mob Doctor) will portray Dale Crowe Jr. on the FX drama, the patriarch of a Florida crime family that causes serious problems for Raylan and company this winter.

Look for Dale to be an ex-convict who runs a gator farm and who is related to Boyd's long-time dim-witted pal Dewey.

Earlier this month, Jere Burns was upgraded to series regular, meaning we'll be seeing a lot more of his slick, shady and hilarious Wynn Duffy.

Justified will return with new episodes in early 2014.
