Monte-Carlo 2012 : Gbenga Akinnagbe in Damages, Sarah Shahi on Fairly Legal's future, etc

The new edition of the Festival de télévision de Monte-Carlo is taking place right now, from June 10 to June 14. People from the small screen are here to give interviews, walk on tapis rouges, smile and take pictures, among other things.

Gbenka Akinnagbe was here for Nurse Jackie. He gave an interview to Allociné and he announced that he will be part of a multi-episode arc in the final season of Damages as a Special Forces agent working with Ellen. Gbenka has no idea whether he'll be back in Nurse Jackie or not (especially with the new showrunners who've recently been hired for season 5). However he thinks there are good chances he might come back in The Good Wife (he played Pastor Isaiah in 5 episodes of the first two seasons), but nothing is official so far.

Sarah Shahi was at the festival for Fairly Legal (aka "Facing Kate" in France, which was the working title of the show until USA Network changed it). She said she doesn't know what will happen to the show but she thinks USA Network will decide in late June/early July whether there'll be a third season of Fairly Legal or not. Apparently Sarah is very nice and the journalists of Allociné went to dinner with her last night.

Jack Coleman is also here (mostly for The Vampire Diaries) and he said he'll definitely be back in the ninth season of The Office as The Senator. However, he thinks he won't be a part of Emily Owens, MD, the new CW series starting this fall. He was in the pilot but he believes his role will either disappear or be recast.

Today, journalists are interviewing Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Joshua Bowman, Lana Parilla, Joseph Morgan, Michael Travino, Melissa Rauch, Mayim Bialik, Benjamin McKenzie, Michael Kudlitz, Regina King, Gabourey Sidibe, Kelli Giddish, Danny Pino, Richard Belzer, Dick Wolf and Howard Gordon, among others.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
