Scott Speedman Joins Netflix’s ‘You’ For Season 3
Exclusive: Animal Kingdom alum Scott Speedman has been tapped for a major recurring role on the upcoming third season of the Netflix series You, headlined by Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti.

Speedman will play Matthew, a successful CEO, husband, and uncommunicative father. He’s reserved, at times mysterious, and has a tendency to be withdrawn, all of which masks a deep well of emotion underneath.

The actor is the latest major addition to You for next season, joining recently cast new series regulars Travis Van Winkle and Shalita Grant.

Developed by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, You is based on Caroline Kepnes’ bestselling books You and Hidden Bodies. In the second season, Joe Goldberg (Badgley) moves from New York to Los Angeles to escape his past, and starts over with a new identity. Fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder, the last thing he expects is to

You Season 3 Casts Frenemies for Love and Joe!

You Season 3 Casts Frenemies for Love and Joe!
When You Season 2 wrapped, Joe (Penn Badgley) was worried that moving to the suburbs was going to be boring.

Even though he impregnated Love (Victoria Pedretti), he was bored enough to start obsessing over his next door neighbor.

Now that You Season 3 is on track for a 2021 launch, details about new cast members are starting to spill out.

Netflix has confirmed fresh blood for the new season with the additions of Shalita Grant and Travis VanWinkle (The Last Ship).

Grant is on board as Sherry, a "Mom-fluencer" who appears down to earth, but is actually a mean girl who only pretends to welcome Love into her social circle.

Given the murderous tendencies of not only Love, but also Joe, this could prove to be a mistake for Sherry.

Still, Joe wanted to kill Love at the close of You Season 2, so Love having an adversary could make Joe happy.

Inside ‘Supernatural’s’ Evolution From Monster-of-the-Week to Psychological Horror

Inside ‘Supernatural’s’ Evolution From Monster-of-the-Week to Psychological Horror
A little boy sits alone on the floor of his bedroom. Backlit by a window, he leans over pages of construction paper on which he is obsessively drawing. A platoon of little green Army men guards the pages, and ultimately the boy. As the camera pans around him, he does not speak — in fact he has not spoken at all since his father drowned in a local lake the year before.

This is not the first time the audience, or even the main characters of “Supernatural” are introduced to this boy, as the moment comes a little less than half-way through the third episode of the series. But through the scene setup and shot style, it is the first time the audience gets a glimpse of the boy’s psyche, which will prove to be indispensable as the Winchester brothers work to solve the case of the mysterious lake deaths.

‘You’ Boss Sera Gamble on the Inspiration of L.A. for Season 2

‘You’ Boss Sera Gamble on the Inspiration of L.A. for Season 2
The second season of Netflix’s “You” saw Joe Goldberg, played by Penn Badgley, relocate from New York to Los Angeles. Goldberg wanted to turn over a new leaf after murdering an ex and framing her therapist for the crime, and in doing so, he assumed a different life as a man named Will. But old habits die hard, and soon enough he found a need for a soundproof cage on the West Coast, too. Here he would first hold the real Will (Robin Lord Taylor) and then others who threatened to expose his true, dark nature.

But before things took that turn, showrunner Sera Gamble says they needed to set up Joe’s new world as one of fresh opportunities.

“If you went straight from Season 1 to Season 2, you’ll notice the sun-drenched color palette. There’s something creamier about the light in L.A. than Season 1,” she says.

Penn Badgley Shares the Secrets of Joe’s Creepy Voiceover on ‘You’

Penn Badgley Shares the Secrets of Joe’s Creepy Voiceover on ‘You’
Fans of “You” know that there’s no telling what will come out of Joe Goldberg’s mouth. But sometimes neither does Penn Badgley, who plays the creepy serial killer on the hit Netflix drama.

In a conversation for Variety’s Actors on Actors issue with Chace Crawford, Badgley explained the voiceover process for the show, revealing that he will often riff when recording Joe’s omniscient observations.

“I think actually where I improv the most, ironically, is in the voiceover booth,” Badgley said. “I’ve developed a trust with the co-creators Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble. They really trust me to go in there.”

Badgley said that he’s often by himself when he does the voiceover scenes. “I go in there alone, save the engineer and a co-producer, and I get almost no direction sometimes,” he said. “I just go through an entire episode, and we’ve not

How Coronavirus Is Causing Hollywood to Rethink Intimate Scenes

How Coronavirus Is Causing Hollywood to Rethink Intimate Scenes
Tan France is a self-described hugger.

One might assume that, being British, he would greet people with a firm handshake and a “how do you do,” but France prefers a big bear hug, particularly when meeting the latest hero he’s making over on Netflix’s “Queer Eye.”

But hugging heroes, their families and pretty much everyone else he meets while shooting isn’t likely to be an option soon.

As with every single production around the country, “Queer Eye” was disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, and the extent of its devastating effect on intimacy on set is yet to be fully assessed.

On the scripted front, there are options for workarounds when it comes to a sex scene or a fight scene, says “You” showrunner Sera Gamble, but at the moment it’s very much a waiting game while showrunners try and work out some “creative solutions.”

TV Showrunners On The Benefits & Challenges Of Writers Zoom Rooms Plus How The Pandemic Will Affect Production – Atx
Atx TV…from the Couch! hosted a discussion with Showrunners Dan Goor (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Beth Schwartz (Sweet Tooth), Melinda Hsu Taylor (Nancy Drew), and Sera Gamble (You) about their experience with transitioning to virtual writers rooms amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

While the transition itself was not a challenge for the writers, being able to capture the same essence of a physical writers room suffered.

“It became really useful right away,” said Taylor, speaking on behalf of the new CW series, Nancy Drew, which was recently picked up for a second season. “I realized that I was actually a little more focused,” she added before admitted that the new set up “was weird.”

Goor echoed similar sentiments. “There were a lot of things we did as a group in the physical space that were really fun and felt integral to the process,” said Goor, who is currently working on season 8 of NBC’s cop comedy.

‘The Act’ Creator Developing Jan Broberg Kidnap Series at Ucp

‘The Act’ Creator Developing Jan Broberg Kidnap Series at Ucp
Nick Antosca, who co-created Hulu’s “The Act,” is delving into another crazy real-life story.

The “Channel Zero” producer is teaming up with Ucp to develop a limited series about Jan Broberg and her multiple kidnappings. Ucp, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, nabbed the rights to Broberg’s stranger-than-fiction story series in what sources describe as a competitive bidding situation.

Broberg’s story was the subject of a Netflix documentary called “Abducted in Plain Sight.” Both Broberg and her mother Mary Ann are on board with this new project as producers.

The untitled Broberg series will follow the bizarre true story of how Jan was kidnapped multiple times over a period of years by a charismatic, obsessed family “friend.” The Brobergs — devoted to their faith, family, and community — were utterly unprepared for the sophisticated tactics their neighbor used to exploit their vulnerabilities, drive them apart, and turn their daughter against them.

Magicians Bosses Explain Why Quentin Could Never Return in Final Season

Magicians Bosses Explain Why Quentin Could Never Return in Final Season
If you were hoping to see Quentin Coldwater one last time before The Magicians wrapped up its run this past Wednesday, then you were, sadly, out of luck.

Given that the Syfy series is a fantasy drama, it’s not out of the realm of possibility to imagine a scenario in which the dearly departed character (played by former series regular Jason Ralph) could have somehow made an appearance despite his demise. But co-showrunner John McNamara tells TVLine there was no talk of bringing back Q during the farewell run, “because death has to be real, even on a fantasy show.

Note: This interview contains full spoilers for the series finale of The Magicians. The Magicians is over. With the airing of the Season 5 finale, “Fillory and Further,” five years of insanely cool magic, shocking twists, emotional breakdowns, and yes, f-bombs galore has come to an end. It wasn’t exactly supposed to go this way. If it were up to The Magicians showrunners Sera Gamble, John McNamara, and Henry Alonso Myers, the show would have continued. But Syfy saw it differently, and in the midst of production on Season 5, word came down that this would probably be …

The Magicians Showrunners Reflect on the Series Before Its Finale

The Magicians Showrunners Reflect on the Series Before Its Finale
As one of the longer-running shows on Syfy, The Magicians has delivered plenty of entertainment with its humor, its universal themes, and its spellbinding goddamn magic. Although it has not been renewed for a sixth season, cancellation feels like a harsh term for the end of this show, especially since part of its story overlaps with the final book of Lev Grossman’s trilogy from which the series is adapted. With that in mind, we spoke to all three of the showrunners from the past seasons to get a sense of the conclusion and look back on the accomplishments of this great series.

Den Of Geek: Was there a sense that, even if you had been renewed, this was one last chance to adapt the big events of The Magician’s Land?
