‘Supernatural’ Animated Episode to Pair the Boys With the ‘Scooby Doo’ Gang — First Look

‘Supernatural’ Animated Episode to Pair the Boys With the ‘Scooby Doo’ Gang — First Look
The CW’s “Supernatural” has always had a little “Scooby Doo” DNA in it, and now here’s more proof: The show is planning an animated crossover with the crime-fighting pooch and his pals next season.

Supernatural” stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki announced the special episode, which will air as part of the show’s 13th season next year. Thirteen is a magic number for “Scooby Doo,” which once aired a series called the “13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo.”

10 mundane, yet brilliant, movie villains

They may not be General Zod or Darth Vader, but these characters are the kind of mundane villains you might encounter in everyday life...

The most memorable movie villains are often also the most outlandish. If you were to stop most strangers on the street and ask them to name screen villain, they’d probably either tell you to leave them alone and stop making them nervous, or they’d instead name one of cinema’s big hitters: heavy-breathing cloak-wearer Darth Vader, or flesh-eating aesthete Hannibal Lecter.

In reality, villains are more mundane. They seldom wear outlandish costumes, and they don’t necessarily even kill or injure people. Real-world villains can range from bullying and self-important bosses to aggressively opinionated news anchors, and from sadistic physical education teachers to heartless politicians.

So here are 10 or so screen antagonists who've stuck in the memory without wearing hockey masks,

The CW Announces 2015-2016 Fall TV Schedule with Trailers

The CW Announces 2015-2016 Fall TV Schedule with Trailers
Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.

"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into

The hilarious and bizarre dimensions of 'Veep' star Gary Cole

The hilarious and bizarre dimensions of 'Veep' star Gary Cole
Gary Cole, who currently stars on "Veep" as Selina Meyer's senior strategist Kent Davidson, is -- for those who've been keeping track -- one of the most eclectic and slyly kooky performers alive. The 58-year-old actor netted his first major nomination last year (an Emmy nod for guest-acting on "Veep"), but his career has been a long, ascending spiral of dead-eyed caricatures and commanding dramatic roles. His august screen presence suggests a comfort playing white-collar blowhards, but that's the magic of Gary Cole: He's absolutely comfortable playing anything. That's pretty astounding when you realize he's played everything. Interviews with Cole, including ours from 2014's PaleyFest below, reveal that he's not a Crispin Glover type who's as unnerving (and nervous-making) as many of his signature roles. In fact, he kind of seems like a milder version of Kent. Perhaps it's his education at Illinois State University alongside fellow thespian veterans

‘Supernatural’ at 200: The Road So Far, An Oral History

‘Supernatural’ at 200: The Road So Far, An Oral History
After 200 episodes, “Supernatural,” which bowed in 2005, has been to hell and back (several times), with a few sojourns to heaven, purgatory, Oz, the past, the post-apocalyptic future and even our world along the way. The show weathered the conversion from The WB to The CW, survived the 2007-08 writers’ strike, and transitioned through several showrunners — and there’s no end in sight. Here, the stars and creative team chart the unlikely journey of the “little show that could.”

Eric Kripke (Creator): For me, the core notion behind “Supernatural” was to make a series about urban legends. I think they’re this incredibly rich mythology about the United States, and no one had really tapped into that, so when I started as a writer, one of the first ideas I ever pitched was an urban legend show.

A couple years later I tried to pitch, basically, a “Scooby Doo” rip
