Latest Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Clip Introduces Jason O'Mara's New Director - Is He Jeffrey Mace/The Patriot?

EW has debuted a new clip from the upcoming "Meet The Boss" episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which sees Coulson and May pay a visit to the new director, who'll be played by Irish actor Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars, Terra Nova). He seems very friendly (well, up until May gets one of those freaky hallucinations), but that might not be the big reveal here. Though the character's last name is not given, Coulson calls him Jeffrey, and coupled with this earlier hint from O'Mara about the person he's playing having a "very manly name", there's a decent chance he's actually Jeffrey Mace, Aka The Patriot, Aka the third Captain America. Far from irrefutable irrefutable evidence of course, but that's my guess. What do you guys think?

Look Out, Coulson! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Casts Jason O'Mara as Its New Boss

Look Out, Coulson! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Casts Jason O'Mara as Its New Boss
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has found Coulson's replacement, but don't expect to learn the true identity of the new boss until season four premieres this fall. Marvel made the announcement that Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars, The Good Wife) has joined the cast of the ABC series as our beloved Phil Coulson's (Clark Gregg) successor following the shocking revelation in the final minutes of the season three finale that he'd been removed from power—however all they're sharing about the character he'll be playing is that it's one "whose Marvel roots go back to the 1940s." So, you know, it could literally be anyone. "Bringing Jason into the mix as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D....

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie review: shell schlock

Leaden and witless, though it obviously believes there is humor in its loud, chaotic juvenility. It would be an insult to cartoons to call this cartoonish. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Apparently the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, when they debuted way back in the 1980s, were intended as a parody of superhero comics. I picked up this tidbit from the Tmnt wikipedia page. I did not absorb it through some sort of cinematic osmosis while watching the new Tmnt movie, Out of the Shadows. That would have been impossible. Whatever the truth of the long-ago comic-book Turtles, there is absolutely nothing that marks them as satirical here. (This may also be true of the 2014 movie that rebooted this franchise, but I have so far managed to avoid that one. If only that had

'Jumanji' Remake on Target for Christmas 2016 Release

'Jumanji' Remake on Target for Christmas 2016 Release
Back in August, Sony Pictures issued release dates for a number of high-profile projects, all set to hit theaters between 2016 and 2017. One of those movies is their Jumanji remake, which has been in development for several years, with Zach Helm coming aboard to write the script back in 2012. Today, Deadline reports that the studio has hired screenwriter Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) to rewrite the script in hopes that it makes its announced holiday release next year.

The remake is said to be a high priority for the studio, described as a "re-imagination" of the original 1995 blockbuster Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, Bonnie Hunt and Bebe Neuwirth. The original movie was spawned from the board game and book by writer Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Zathura). The movie earned a whopping $262.7 million worldwide at the box office, from a $65 million production budget.

Television that Home Video Forgot: Twins (2005)

Twins

Showcase Inventory

Created by David Kohan, Max Mutchnick

Produced by KoMut Entertainment, Warner Bros Entertainment

Aired on The WB for 1 season (18 episodes) from September 16, 2005 – March 3, 2006

Cast

Sara Gilbert as Mitchee Arnold

Molly Stanton as Farrah Arnold

Melanie Griffith as Lee Arnold

Mark Linn-Baker as Alan Arnold

Show Premise

Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde. It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters,

Sons Of Liberty: Jason O’Mara Talks George Washington And More

There's something amusing about sitting down to talk to Irish actor Jason O'Mara about playing George Washington, arguably the greatest American in our nation's history, in the latest take on America's founding in the History Channel's Sons of Liberty, out now on Blu-Ray. Nationalism aside, anytime anyone takes on the task or bringing Washington to life, they take on a huge responsibility. George Washington, historically, is an anomaly; one who has as many myths and legends surrounding him to rival even King Arthur. And the comparison is fair, as many consider Washington the "American King," which would have rubbed the real Washington the wrong way.

From wooden teeth to chopping down cherry trees, the way 18th century writers painted him, Washington came off as larger than life, when really, he was a so-so general who lost more battles than he won, was deeply isolationist (preferring America to not meddle

USA Announces Summer 2015 Premiere Dates for 'Suits,' 'Graceland' and More
Long gone are the summers filled with reruns of favorite shows. Also, is the notion that summer replacement shows are "not good enough" for the fall. Some of today's most popular shows are those that premiere in the summer.

USA network announced its summer line up during its annual Upfront presentation which includes two new drama series: Mr. Robot and Complications. Mr. Robot, (a terrible name for hopefully a much better series), is described as a techno-thriller starring Christian Slater and Rami Malek. Malek plays a young programmer recruited by Slater to join an underground hacker group. Complications is created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and stars Jason O'Mara (Life on Mars) and Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl).

Supergirl: Laura Benanti cast as Alura Zor-El

Supergirl’s mother will be played by Laura Benanti in the upcoming CBS series…

It’s been nearly a month since our last update on the CBS Supergirl series, which saw Mehcad Brooks join the cast as a new cooled-up screen version of photographer Jimmy Olsen. Now, we’ve learnt about another addition to the cast – Laura Benanti, who will play Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Supergirl, aka Kara (played by Melissa Benoist of Glee and Whiplash).

In terms of character description specific to the show, what we know so far is that Alura is “a strong noblewoman, [who] sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl.”

It sounds like she might be doing a Russell-Crowe-in-Man-Of-Steel, then, popping up throughout the narrative to help out her estranged offspring with words of wisdom.

Nonso Anozie Trades Game Of Thrones For Zoo

Game Of Thrones actor Nonso Anozie has moved from his portrayal of Xaro Ahoan Daxos on the hit show, to a recurring role in the CBS adaptation of James Patterson’s novel, Zoo. The stand-alone book, co-written with Michael Ledwidge, was published in 2012 to positive reviews – many of which cited the perceived plausibility of the plot.

The earth-bound science fiction story centres on scientist Jackson Oz, who is systematically dismissed by his colleagues in the fields of ecology and biology after focusing years of research on animals attacking humans. Believing there to be an increasing pattern, Oz travels to Botswana, where he manages to survive a large-scale lion attack. Teaming with fellow survivor, and former diplomat, Chloe Tousignant, he works to uncover why the animal world has begun what is seemingly a united effort to remove humans from the ecosystem completely.

10 TV characters who knew how to make an entrance

From Battlestar Galactica to Farscape, Doctor Who and more, Juliette cheers on 10 TV characters who made a big first impression...

Some characters slip onto our TV screens quietly and sneak into our hearts slowly. We watch them develop and grow, and come to love them over time, sometimes despite very inauspicious beginnings (being eaten by a wheelie bin springs to mind).

Others make more of an impression from the get-go.

In this list, we’re celebrating some of the most memorable and impressive entrances of characters from TV shows. To make the list, a character had to be (or eventually become) a regular or frequently recurring character – no one-shot wonders here. And note this is a list for TV characters, so you won’t see any Captain Jack Sparrow or even the Borg Queen – all of these had to make their big impression on the small screen.

What's the big idea? How Lost changed the game for Us television

Digital Spy presents Lost Week - seven days of special features celebrating 10 years of the game-changing Us TV drama.

When Lost premiered on ABC ten years ago, few predicted it would become so entrenched in pop culture and inspire many similarly high-concept ideas.

While there have always been TV shows with Big Ideas, Lost's success definitely paved the way for networks - mainly Us broadcasters with money to splash - to create dramas with grand, ambitious ideas at their core.

A decade on from the Lost pilot, we take a look at 7 TV shows from the past decade that each had a Big Idea, and examine how each fared with viewers.

1. Lost

What's the big idea?

A passenger jet flying from Sydney to Los Angeles, carrying a disparate mix of people, crash-lands on an island, forcing the castaways to work together if they're to survive this exotic but hostile environment.

Nashville Premiere Recap: Three Chords and the (Hard) Truth

Nashville Premiere Recap: Three Chords and the (Hard) Truth
Nashville‘s Rayna Jaymes probably makes the right decision in the series’ Season 3 premiere, and I really, really hate her for it.

Before you angrily mobilize to spray-paint a giant “Deyna 4eva” on my house, hear me out. The best decision Ray could’ve made would be to come clean with both of her beaus: “Deacon, you are one Hot Pocket, but you and I need to figure. some. stuff. out. before we even think about doing this again.

Edgar Wright Will Venture Into Grasshopper Jungle

Though Ant-Man can’t seem to stop itself from getting squashed, that film’s former director Edgar Wright is smoothly moving forward – and sticking around in insect territory, as it turns out. Sony Pictures has set the beloved Scott Pilgrim vs. the World helmer to direct an adaptation of the impressive and unconventional Andrew Smith Dutton Ya novel Grasshopper Jungle.

Wright’s next project will be Baby Driver, described as “a collision of crime, action, music and sound,” but after filming on that movie is completed, the director will move quickly into Grasshopper Jungle, which boasts a script by Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Life on Mars). Rosenberg is also on board as a producer alongside The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Matt Tolmach and Nira Park, who is involved with all of Wright’s movies. Grasshopper Jungle has Tolmach to thank for scoring Wright – the producer friended Wright on Facebook and encouraged
