Fred Armisen, Patton Oswalt
Before ABC's Modern Family heads to Australia next month, they will be taking a trip a bit closer to home. This week, the six adult cast members will go on location to Las Vegas, where they'll be joined by two high-profile guest stars.
Fred Armisen, of Saturday Night Live and Portlandia fame, will play...
Son of Batman
Batman turns 75 this year and he's celebrating by becoming a father. The upcoming animated movie Son of Batman introduces Damian, the child Bruce Wayne never knew he had. The story is based on a 2006 comic-book arc written by Grant Morrison in which Batman learns that he has a violent, unruly pre-teen son, secretly raised by the terrorist group the League of Assassins....
Sheriff Callie's Wild West
There's rootin' and there's tootin' but definitely no shootin'! On Monday, Jan. 20, Disney Junior will premiere its newest animated series, Sheriff Callie's Wild West (5/4c), with the voice of Mandy Moore as Callie, a calico cat who keeps peace in the tumbleweed town of Nice and Friendly Corners. Aimed at kids 2 to 7, the program comes from Denis Morella, George Evelyn and Holly Huckins, the creative team behind Disney's Higglytown Heroes. And they leave no stone — or western convention — unturned....
The Big Bang Theory
They've kissed and cuddled, and their Dungeons & Dragons characters had sex. But could Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) finally do the deed — or perhaps even utter the L-word — in The Big Bang Theory's Valentine's Day episode, airing Feb. 6? "It is a very big, very sweet episode for Amy and Sheldon," Bialik teases.
Jim Jefferies and Carrie Fisher
Before she reprises her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars: Episode VII, Carrie Fisher is putting in some TV time. The actress will play Angela Greenberg, an aggressive comedy-development exec who sets up a meeting with Jim (Jim Jefferies) on FXX's Legit later this season....
Winter is coming...to the set of Klondike. The crew of Discovery's first-ever scripted show cranks up the snow machine as stars Richard Madden and Sam Shepard button up their wool coats and two buses unload dozens of extras dressed in heavy 19th-century garb. The only problem? It's actually a beautiful May day on the Calgary set, with temperatures hovering in the high 80s....
Once Upon A Time
There are still seven weeks until Once Upon a Time returns! That's the bad news. The good news is TVGuide.com caught up with executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis to get the scoop on what's ahead.
Seth Meyers is still working out the kinks for when he takes over Late Night, but one thing he has for certain is his first guest.
Meyers, who takes the stage on Feb. 24 at 12:35 a.m./11:35c, told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter previews on Sundaythe first person to sit on his couch will be Amy Poehler. "She's basically Bono's common-law wife now," he joked, referring to her epic Golden Globes makeout with the singer.
Executive producer Jason Katims is downsizing on his new show in more ways than one.
After working on two hour-long dramas with large ensembles — Friday Night Lights boasted 10 series regulars and Parenthood currently has 15 — Katims' new show, About a Boy, is a half-hour comedy with just four stars. "I've always wanted to do a comedy. I've always wanted to do a half hour. What's exciting about the form is that you have to tell these stories in such a streamlined way and it's been really great," Katims told reporters Sunday at NBC's Television Critics Association winter previews. "This is a very small ensemble and you get to focus on telling one story. ... That's really very different from what I've been doing."
However, like FNL and Parenthood, About a Boy is an adaptation of the movie of the same name, which is in turn an adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel. In the TV version, David Walton (New Girl) steps into the Hugh Grant role as an immature 30-something hit songwriter named Will whose life is turned upside down when an...
