2015’s Top 10 Movies

From an idea, to the script, to filming and finally making its way to the big screen, every movie starts with a great story. The cinematic stories of 2015 inundated audiences with inspiring tales of compassion, happiness, courage and love while being spread over the various genres.

Moviegoers saw the rise of Nwa, true stories of an ongoing cover-up and the economic catastrophe whose effects are still being felt today, journeys of harsh survival but also ones of inspirational hope – both here on earth and on distant worlds – and a re-imaging of the beauty and chaos of the post-apocalyptic world that is Mad Max. Even the new story about Rocky Balboa proved to be a fascinating one as we watched the torch being passed to a new generation. We couldn’t help but feel a whimsy of nostalgia from a visit back to Philadelphia as well as to that Galaxy Far Far Away.

Joss Whedon’s ‘Shield’ TV Show Adds Brett Dalton

Before the surprise announcement was made at New York Comic-Con that Clark Gregg would be reprising the fan-favorite role of Agent Phil Coulson in S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) following his demise in The Avengers, we learned that there will be (at least) four new agents introduced in the pilot episode to round out the main cast.

Ming-Na Wen (Stargate Universe) signed first, later joined by Elizabeth Henstridge (Shelter) and Ian De Caestecker (The Fades), and today we can add Brett Dalton (Killing Lincoln) to the roster, filling out the roster of characters we learned about previously.

After The Avengers opened in theaters in May to break the record for largest opening weekend at the box office ever, it only took a few days for Disney CEO Bob Iger ...

Marvel! Two New Agents Join TV’s S.H.I.E.L.D.

  • Boomtron
We’re getting a clearer picture of what TV’s S.H.I.E.L.D. is shaping up to be. That picture now includes actors Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker and their young, fresh faces. The prospect of a Marvel flavored TV adaptation is still intensely exciting to me. With a name like Joss Whedon behind the series, I’d say there’s a good chance it won’t get flubbed up, either.

So, the ABC Studios project will revolve around the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate, or S.H.I.E.L.D., which is the military law-enforcement agency expected to police super heroes.

Actress Elizabeth Henstridge will play a science genius by the name of Agent Gemma Simmons, THR revealed. She’s joined by Iain De Caestecker, who is all geared up to portray Agent Leo Fitz. Fitz is your techie type,probably not unlike Q from the James Bond series.

Apparently the two, which

'S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot adds two new agents

'S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot adds two new agents
ABC has recruited two new agents for Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot.

Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker have both been cast in the project, joining Ming-Na, who was cast in a lead role last month.

Henstridge, who last year booked a role on the J.J. Abrams’ CW pilot Shelter, joins as Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestrecker will play Agent Leo Fitz.

The much-anticipated project, which centers on superspy operation established in the Marvel universe, received a pilot order from ABC back in August.

THR first reported the casting.

Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. adds Two New Agents in Elizabeth Henstridge & Iain De Caestecker

  • HeyUGuys
Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot is coming along very nicely, with production recently reported to be getting underway in January.

Clark Gregg was the brilliant first announcement to be joining the pilot, swiftly followed by Ming-Na, and now THR report that two new agents have been found, in the form of Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker.

“Henstridge will play science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker will play Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru. The duo spend all their time together – mostly bickering – and are masters of their respective fields at a remarkably young age.”

I was rather hoping that De Caestecker’s role might go to Fran Kranz, who was absolutely immense in a similar role on Dollhouse. But here’s to hoping that Kranz will return to work with Whedon on this in a different capacity.

Having taken The Avengers to record-breaking heights this year, Whedon

According to THR, Henstridge will play a character named Agent Gemma Simmons described as a science whiz, and De Caestecker is set to play Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru.

They join the previously cast Ming-Na, who plays Agent Melinda May a top-notch pilot and weapons expert, and of course Clark Gregg, who is reprising his role as Agent Phil Coulson.

The story will revolve around the activities of the top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D espionage organization featured in The Avengers. Whedon is tentatively set to direct the pilot for the series that he

Joss Whedon's 'Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot recruits Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker

U.K. actors Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker are the latest additions to Joss Whedon's hotly anticipated pilot "Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D."

The pair will play bickering young prodigies Agent Gemma Simmons and Agent Leo Fitz -- a.k.a. "FitzSimmons" according to the series' casting breakdown. They join a growing ensemble that already boasts "ER" vet Ming-Na Wen and Clark Gregg, who reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from various Marvel movies including "The Avengers."

"S.H.I.E.L.D.," which is set up at ABC Studios, will tell stories from the same universe as Marvel's blockbuster films but specifics about the series are being closely guarded. "Avengers" director Whedon will also direct the pilot, which he co-wrote with brother Jed Whedon and sister-in-law Maurissa Tancharoen.

Scottish born De Caestecker was a series regular on BBC America's "The Fades," while the Sheffield-raised Henstridge appeared on popular British soap "Hollyoaks" and had

New TV Season Breakdown: The CW

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.

With "Hart of Dixie" last season's sole surviving new show and "Gossip Girl" finishing up with a short final season this coming Fall, The CW is pushing hard on original content this season with five new shows ordered as opposed to the regular two or three. There's also a bunch of timeslot changes with "The Vampire Diaries" the sole show to have not changed its place on the network's schedule.

The additions have allowed the sub-35 skewering network to essentially have theme nights - prime-time soaps on Mondays, quirky medical dramas on Tuesdays, male-dominated genre action shows on Wednesdays, and female-oriented supernatural romancers on Thursdays.

The most notable change to the schedule

The Revolution will be televised.

Except for the characters on NBC’s new series Revolution, because they will have no electricity to watch TV after an apocalyptic disaster leaves America unplugged from all devices and machines. That’s right, there’s no cars, no cell phones, no Internet, no…actually, that sounds like it could be pretty relaxing.

But we’re sure being stripped of technology will have some serious consequences for the show’s characters, who will be played by costars like Billy Burke (Twilight), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and Andrea Roth (Ringer). Sci-fi wunderkin J.J. Abrams (Lost) and

'One Tree Hill': Sophia Bush, Bethany Joy Lenz, James Lafferty, and castmates make their next career moves

Tonight we say goodbye to "One Tree Hill" after nine years on the air, but the cast and crew said goodbye in mid-November when picture wrapped on the 187th episode in Wilmington, Nc. Now, over four months later, creator Mark Schwahn and the cast we've come to think of as friends have moved on to new projects.

We realize that emotions are still raw right now, but when you're ready -- here's where you can find those familiar faces.

Mark Schwahn: Schwahn is currently back in North Carolina overseeing production on his pilot, "Shelter," which is a contender for The CW's Fall 2012 schedule. The pilot, which he's executive producing with J.J. Abrams, will certainly appeal to "One Tree Hill" fans -- it's an old-school WB feel, an undeniable earnestness, and the same themes of hope and friendship that we saw on Oth.

After nearly a decade of drama, 'One Tree Hill' says goodbye in two-hour series finale
One Tree Hill wraps up nine emotional seasons Wednesday night with a two-hour series finale on the CW. I’ll admit that it really will be hard to say goodbye.

I was a high school freshman when One Tree Hill debuted on the then-wb network in September 2003. Like brainy Haley James Scott (Bethany Joy Galeotti) and baby-faced Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray), I was navigating my way through teen angst. I tuned in because I had a Dawson’s Creek-size hole in my schedule and I would do just about anything not to do my English homework.

Malese Jow and Zachary Abel take Shelter with J.J. Abrams

Vampire Diaries’ Malese Jow and Make It Or Break It’s Zachary Abel Land at CW

While every other pilot project had found its leading men and women, the CW’s drama pilot Shelter (from the minds of J.J. Abrams and Once Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn) was still struggling to find the right man and woman to help bring this show to life. All worries can now be set aside. Zachary Able (Make It Or Break It) and Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries) have both been cast. I bet the producers breathed a big sigh of relief when they finally made the decision to hire these two. To be the last pilot to find its leads seems like a stressful situation to be in. After all, you can’t film the show until you have stars!

Deadline confirmed the casting of Abel and Jow for the Warner Bros. TV produced pilot.

Zachary Abel and Malese Jow to Take Shelter on The CW

  • TVfanatic
Familiar faces to fans of Make It or Break It and The Vampire Diaries have been cast on one of the The CW's most anticipated pilots.

According to Deadline, Zachary Abel will play the lead on Shelter, an upcoming drama from Mark Schwahn and J.J. Abrams that focuses on life at an historic New England summer resort. The actor is set to portray Mitchell Taylor, a local baseball star-turned-concierge.

Malese Jow, meanwhile, will portray a party girl in town.

Jow joins Trent Ford on the series, who also recurred on The Vampire Diaries as Trevor.

'Vampire Diaries' star Malese Jow scores 'Shelter' role

The CW's "Shelter" pilot is rounding out its cast. As if we didn't already love the script enough, executive producers J.J. Abrams and Mark Schwahn have now chosen Malese Jow -- one of our favorites -- to play Morgan, a 22-year-old "party girl" type who works at the Shelter Bay Inn.

Best known for her role as teen vampire Anna on "Vampire Diaries" and Lucy on Nickelodeon's "Big Time Rush," this role is definitely a more adult turn for Jow. Let's just say Morgan's reputation for promiscuity isn't exactly unfounded. Homegirl likes to spread the wealth.

In fact, one of her lust interests is faded rocker Tyler Green, played by fellow "Vampire Diaries" alum Trent Ford --  though the two never shared scenes together on "Tvd."

"Shelter" is shooting in North Carolina. The casting was first reported by Deadline.

Not unlike both EPs’ previous primetime soaps (One Tree Hill and Felicity, respectively), Shelter will navigate friendships, rivalries and romances.
