In a rather short period of time, Sebastian Stan has become quite well known to fans of all different genres. The CW set know him as Carter Baizen from Gossip Girl, while comedy fans may recall his turn as Hot Tub Time Machine. His wide variety of roles including Black Swan, USA Network's Political Animals and ABC's Once Upon a Time have little in common, except for how vastly different they are from one another.
Of course, Marvel fans were introduced to the actor in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger as Bucky Barnes, the best friend of Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and one of his Howling Commandos, but although he's returning in this weekend's sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he most certainly isn't playing the same old Bucky. Thought to be dead for decades, this once-heroic character emerges as the powerful Winter Soldier, whose abilities exceed even the super serum-enhanced Captain America, »
On the heels of the "Flowers in the Attic," Lifetime will premiere its sequel "Petals on the Wind" on Memorial Day (Mon., May 26, at 9:00 p.m. Et). Because what better way to celebrate a national holiday than with a movie about incest, drug use and dancing? If you've forgotten (or haven't read) the books, this TV movie will be based on the second gothic novel of the iconic V.C. Andrews series about the Dollanganger family. The film begins ten years after the siblings have escaped the attic, where their mother Corrine (Heather Graham, "Drugstore Cowboy") and grandmother Olivia (Ellen Burstyn, "Political Animals") kept them locked away for more than two years. And, you know, they had their sexual awakening and all that. While eating poisoned donuts. Good times! A decade after Cathy (Rose McIver, "Masters of Sex," "Once Upon a Time"), Christopher (Wyatt Nash, "Pretty Little Liars") and Carrie (Bailey Buntain, »

Exclusive: ICM Partners has reason to crow a little this morning. The agency just signed Sebastian Stan. He’s the goth-looking villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which Marvel Studios and Disney release shortly. Stan, who had been repped by Wme, appeared in the first Captain America as Bucky Barnes, the superhero’s sidekick in the WWII storyline who has a resurgence in the Marvel Comics and obviously the movie. He’s front and center in the sequel, but until that film comes out, Stan is better known for his stage work that includes starring opposite Ellen Burstyn in the Broadway revival of Picnic, and starring with Liev Schreiber in Eric Bogosian’s Talk Radio. His other film work includes The Apparition, Gone, Black Swan, Hot Tub Time Machine and The Covenant. He also did the USA Network’s Political Animals as well as Gossip Girl on the small screen. »

Exclusive: I have learned that Warner Horizon Evp Craig Erwich will be leaving his post atop Warner Bros TV’s cable/alternative division. I hear Erwich opted not to renew his contract and will stay on until his current deal is up in March. Erwich was the No. 2 programming executive at Fox when Wbtv president Peter Roth — for whom Erwich had previously worked at Stephen J. Cannell Prods. — brought him over to build a cable and reality unit. At the time, Wbtv had a cable hit in The Closer and an unscripted one with ABC’s The Bachelor but no one to spearhead that part of the business for the studio. Over the past six years, Erwich oversaw Warner Horizon’s transformation into a major cable player claiming the top-rated series on two networks – Rizzoli & Isles on TNT and Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family, where the studio also has spinoff series Ravenswood. »
