Latest News Items (What is this?)

  • 21:10 - The Night Shift - Episode 3.03 - Lindsey Morgan to Guest
    Thanks to Bear Blue for the heads up.
    It sounds like Lindsey Morgan aka The 100‘s Raven will get to clean up real nice-like for her role on NBC’s The Night Shift.

    TVLine has confirmed that the actress will guest-star on the third episode of Season 3 as Kryztal, a high-strung bride whose injury in a wedding-day accident reveals a deeper and more complicated medical problem — one aggravated by the presence of her previously absentee father, who she believes ruined her wedding.

  • 21:10 - Taken - Brooklyn Sudano Joins Cast
    My Wife and Kids alumna Brooklyn Sudano has landed a series regular role opposite Clive Standen in Taken, NBC’s straight-to-series adaptation of the hit movie franchise.

    Written and executive produced by Alex Cary (Homeland), who serves as showrunner, the Taken TV series is a modern-day prequel to the film franchise that depicts how Bryan Mills (Standen) developed and sharpened his particular set of skills. EuropaCorp TV USA and Universal Television are producing. Alex Graves is directing.

    Sudano will play Asha, an attractive, well-educated young student from an upper middle class family who is furthering her education when she first meets Bryan (Standen).

  • 21:10 - Agents of SHIELD - Season 3B - Luke Mitchell CBR Interview
    Thanks to Alex Forrest for the heads up.
    On where viewers will find Lincoln Campbell when the show returns:

    When the show picks up again he's in S.H.I.E.L.D. -- he's working with S.H.I.E.L.D. -- I think that's safe to say without being shot. The reason he's with S.H.I.E.L.D. is because of Daisy, that's fairly obvious. But the fact is, he is in S.H.I.E.L.D. He has to remain there because that's the best thing for him. At this point in time he doesn't have anything else. He has Daisy, and therefore he has S.H.I.E.L.D. And therefore he wants to stay in S.H.I.E.L.D. and do the best he can for S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Moving forward we're definitely going to deal a little bit more with some of the things that were introduced in episode three, with some of his past demons eventually popping up…Yeah, before I get in trouble I'll stop that sentence…

    I think I'm allowed to say Lincoln and Daisy will continue to, y'know, romance a little bit. There's a blossoming romance there for sure.

  • 21:05 - Chef's Table - New Episodes Ordered by Netflix
    Netflix is stacking up on more Chef's Table.

    The streaming company has renewed the docuseries for three more seasons, it was announced Tuesday.

    Season two, which will consist of six new installments, will premiere May 27, followed by four special episodes debuting later this year specifically focused on the world's most renowned French chefs. Season four, which will run for six episodes, is set to premiere sometime in 2017.

  • 21:05 - Teen Wolf - Season 5B Finale - Jeff Davis EW Interview
    Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.
    “There’s hope for Mason,” Davis says. “It all lies with Scott’s desire to save everyone, especially his determination that Liam will not lose his best friend. Scott was able to save his own best friend, so he’s determined that Liam will have a fighting chance to save Mason.”

    But not everyone has a best friend to help them out. Malia, for example, is going to have to face her mother on her own. Okay, so she might have a little help from Braeden, but let’s face it: Claws trump guns. Regardless, it’s time for Malia to get at least a little closure, right? “Yes, but not enough,” Davis says. “We like to leave a few little crumbs here and there to allow us to bring characters back. Malia’s going to have to have difficulty in the future with finding the right sort of parental figures since her parents are the Desert Wolf and Peter. But in terms of defining her powers, I think we’ll definitely get some closure on that.”

  • 23:10 - Murder in the First - Season 3 - Michael Gaston Cast as a Series Regular
    Michael Gaston is joining TNT’s “Murder in the First” as a series regular for season three, Variety has learned exclusively.

    His casting marks a reunion with “Murder in the First” co-creator Steven Bochco, as they worked together on “Blind Justice,” which was Bochco’s short-lived “NYPD Blue” follow-up that ran one season on ABC in 2005.

    In the upcoming season of “Murder in the First,” Gaston will play Fred Arkin, a warm family man who is a DUI defense attorney in a high-profile case.

  • 23:10 - Agents of SHIELD - Season 3B - Clark Gregg teases Secret Warriors
    Thanks to Alex Forrest for the heads up.
    "We were starting to find the Secret Warriors and bring together a team of Secret Warriors to deal with this outbreak of enhanced people, and that had to almost go on the backburner," Clark Gregg tells TVGuide.com.

    "There is some exciting stuff coming with Secret Warriors," Gregg promises. "Hopefully it will be exciting enough that we'll have a fighting chance against what's coming to find us."

  • 23:05 - Agents of SHIELD - Season 3B - Clark Gregg EW Interview
    Thanks to Alex Forrest for the heads up.
    “I’m pretty sure Coulson feels very conflicted about what he’s just done in a world where it’s constantly being pointed out to us how important it is that the people responsible for protecting us adhere to a higher standard, don’t carry out personal vendettas, and don’t respond to anger,” Gregg tells EW. “Coulson has crossed that line. It’s a moment that’s between him and Fitz [Iain De Caestecker], because Fitz witnessed it, and that dynamic between them and their mutual ambivalence about what’s happened and what they both did on the planet, to a certain extent, will play out in those first episodes. I don’t think Coulson has any idea that by doing this thing, that there will be anything more than the karmic moral implications that are upsetting to him, but he’s going to find out that the literal payback for what he’s done is beyond anything that he can possibly imagine.”

  • 23:05 - UnReal - Season 2 - Bruce Davison, Christopher Cousins, and Lindsay Musil Join Cast
    In addition to B.J. Britt as Everlasting’s new bachelor, EW can exclusively reveal three new actors that have been cast for the show’s second season.

    Veteran actor Bruce Davison (X-Men, Knight Rider) has been cast as Randy, a cowboy and musician from Quinn’s (Constance Zimmer) past. Suffering from arthritis, Randy is shown to be bitter and angry, but still close with Quinn.

    Christopher Cousins (Breaking Bad, Glee) will play Gary, the president of the network that airs Everlasting.

    Relative newcomer Lindsay Musil (MTV’s Scream reboot) will be one of the women vying for the heart of Britt’s character on Everlasting. Musil will play Beth Ann, a small-town Alabama woman who speaks her mind without a filter, and is cast on the dating show to stir up controversy.

  • 20:58 - Agents of SHIELD - Season 3B - Henry Simmons Interview [VIDEO]
    Thanks to Alex Forrest for the heads up.

  • 20:20 - Agents of SHIELD - Season 3B - Brett Dalton TVLine Interview
    Next month marks the two-year anniversary of when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Grant Ward chose not to execute mentor John Garrett aka The Clairvoyant and instead gun down a pair of S.H.I.E.L.D. guards and then Victoria Hand herself (putting two in the floor for good measure). The betrayal marked the ABC series’ first pre-Captain America: The Winter Solider bombshell, yet set in motion a pattern that would separate Brett Dalton from his castmates for the forseeable future.

    “I’ve been splintered from the cast since I became a double agent,” Dalton notes. “And unfortunately, that has been one of the saddest things for me, because I love these guys so much and I don’t get to work with them as often as I like.”

    Has Dalton ever felt hurt by the storyline-dictated segregation? “No,” he says. “I’ve gotten bumps and bruises from some of the fight scenes, but emotionally I’m still relatively intact — as much as one could hope for!”

  • 00:25 - iZombie - Season 2 - Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas to Guest Star

    The collaboration between the two Rob Thomases begins in this season’s 17th episode, when Max Rager chairman Vaughn Du Clark (Steven Weber) hires Thomas (as himself) to perform the company’s new jingle. Thomas’ song will debut then, but he won’t appear onscreen until the Apr. 12 season finale, which finds Thomas performing one of his songs at the Super Max launch party.

In over his head, Chance’s decent into the city’s shadowy underbelly, all while navigating the waters of a contentious divorce and the tribulations of his teenage daughter, soon spirals into an ever deepening exploration of one of mankind’s final frontiers — the shadowy, undiscovered country of the human mind.
