According to a recent report from Soapcentral, we’re about to see a new male arrive on the scene for CBS’s hit soap opera show “The Bold And The Beautiful.” The crew has decided to hire former Happy Days actor Don Most (above) to come on and play a character named Pete. If any of you watch Happy Days, Don played character Ralph Malph on the show. Getting back to the Pete character, Soapcentral says he’ll be a handyman that arrives to help spruce up the Spectra Fashions building after a fire breaks out. Don recently talked to TV Insider and gave them a little more intel about his Pete role saying, “It's an old building and there's something very dicey going on with the electrical wiring.

Trek Writer, Fan-Film At Odds Over Takei Episode

Marc Scott Zicree might not be the first name you think of when it comes to Star Trek. But he has made his mark in a couple of ways, including the story for the popular "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" episode that pulled everyone out of their makeup, "Far Beyond the Stars."His writing since then has been a mix of "Sliders" episodes, some animated series work, and the 2007 "Star Trek: New Voyages" episode "World Enough and Time."This was an episode that more or less helped put fan-films on the map, and featured a guest appearance by George Takei, who has been in the news this week after "Star Trek: Beyond" revealed the Sulu character he originated would come out as gay.Zicree has made no secret of his dislike for the recent fan-film guidelines issued by CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures, and has ...

John Rhys-Davies interview: The Shannara Chronicles

As The Shannara Chronicles comes to the UK, we chat to and Lord Of The Rings and Indiana Jones actor, John Rhys-Davies

Interviewing John Rhys-Davies is like trying to alter the flow of a mighty torrent with a teacup. Scoop as hard as you like in any given direction, and on it gushes with tremendous force, following its own course and making a wonderful spectacle as it goes.

Best known for his role as Gimli, son of Gloin in Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Davies’ six decades-long career includes the roles of Sallah in the Indiana Jones films and Professor Arturo in Fox’s Sliders, a show he didn’t depart from happily after a network-orchestrated change in writing personnel.

I met Davies in the offices of Channel 5 to talk about his role as Eventine, King of the Elves in new MTV fantasy series The Shannara Chronicles,

Defiance season 3 episode 5 review: History Rhymes

If only every Defiance episode could work as well as this week's, which had great story flow and characteristically strong SFX...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 History Rhymes

From the outset, History Rhymes was a much slicker and tighter narrative than we’ve been graced with so far this season.

The centre-piece is the often turbulent relationship between Nolan and Irisa, and how they’re now bonded together to share a common memory collection.

It might seem somewhat late in the process to give Nolan more backstory, but as this progressed, his failings and Irisa's were better revealed. As it went on, I began to wonder if Irisa is actually more guilt-ridden than Nolan, but surely the point is that only these two characters can understand the pain of the other, even if they’re not exactly bonding right now.

The only problem with the memory sequences was that taken out

Star Trek: 47 geeky things about the Next Generation films

From Star Trek: Generations through to Star Trek: Nemesis - here are 47 nerdy spots in the Next Generation films...

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.

This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.

Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

Liked The Flash? Then Check Out Sliders

The CW's The Flash was a surprise hit of the TV season, but sadly there will be no new episodes for a few months. Though the network will be reairing the first season in its entirety on Tuesday nights this summer, The Flash fans may be looking for something else to fill the void. Do you already miss the casual trips into reality-warping wormholes? Do you crave the intellectual stimulation of mind-bending alternate timelines? Do you like watching fresh-faced cast members engage in romantic entanglements and action-oriented plots while being mentored by older veterans of the craft? Then Sliders is the cure for what ails you. In a San Francisco basement... Created by Robert K. Weiss and Tracy TorméSliders was a sci-fi TV series that ran for five seasons from 1995 to 2000.

National Geographic's 'Killing Jesus': Tales from the Morocco set

National Geographic's 'Killing Jesus': Tales from the Morocco set
Ouarzazate, Morocco. Officially, the Moroccan city of Ouarzazate is nicknamed "The door of the desert," resting south of the High Atlas Mountains and on the edge of the Draa Valley. Thanks to the presence of Atlas Studios, though, Ouarzazate is perhaps more appropriately known as The Hollywood of Central Morocco, or perhaps even The Hollywood of Morocco. Ouarzazate has a population of just over 50,000, but in late October of 2014, that population includes a disproportionate number of Jesuses, Judases and an absurd number of Marys, both Jesus' mom and of the Magdalene variety. It's late October of 2014 and Ouarzazate is the beating heart of TV's Biblical world. "It's a very holy town right now," laughs Haaz Sleiman, one of the Ouarzazate Jesi -- Yes, that should be the name of a fantasy baseball team -- specifically playing the title role in National Geographic's "Killing Jesus," the project that has brought me to this region.

The recurring character — who will first appear in Episode 3 — is described as “a well-bred prince with a serious chip on his shoulder,” a young man who burns to be king.
