  • 10:45 - Agents of SHIELD - Jeremy Renner expresses interest in appearing
    Jeremy Renner is still waiting for the ABC series to invite him on to reprise his role as Hawkeye on the small screen, he told fans at the Wizard World Chicago panel on Sunday. His only caveat was the show needed to film near his children in Los Angeles, which it does.

    "I've said this before," the 44-year-old actor stated and urged fans to "go yell at those guys" to write him into an episode. Renner also expressed interest in appearing on the show last October during a Reddit AMA.

  • 03:00 - Devious Maids - Season 3 Finale - Post Mortem
    When did you decide to kill off Michael?

    We had not always decided that, but we did feel like we needed some serious repercussions in the finale. Somebody probably had to die and it would be a really big and shocking moment, the kind of moment that would let the audience know this was a seriously dangerous situation that we were playing for life and death. That came up as we were writing the finale. We went ahead and let Brett know right before the actors got the script and he was very good about the whole thing. He told me he had been expecting to be either revealed as the villain or to be killed all season. He was waiting for that shoe to drop. He was an absolute great sport about it and it made for a great shocking moment in the finale.

    When did you tell Gilles Marini that Sebastien was the killer?

    We withheld the secret all season long. Gilles knew a little bit before everyone else, but it was right around the time that the final script was circulating. So we did a good job of keeping that secret. We wanted to reserve the right to change story as we went, but we really did have a pretty clear idea of where we were going and we did lay in some clues that he was the killer. I do believe that most people will not have seen that coming.

    The series is the serio-comic story of a self-appointed “guru” Chip (Arnett) who falls for the object of his best friend’s fascination. Soon the tangled web of half-truths and semi-bullsh*t that underpins his all-important image and sobriety begins to unravel.
