Dallas Roberts has been unforgettable in numerous recent roles, including the doomed Milton Mamet on The Walking Dead and Alicia Florrick's gay brother, Owen, on The Good Wife. Now he's landed a steady gig as Poppy Montgomery's inscrutable new NYPD boss, Elliot, on Unforgettable. Here's why he lives up to the show's title.
SHE PLAYS Graceland's gung-ho FBI agent Charlie DeMarco, a badass so committed to not blowing her cover that she shot up heroin in front of a dealer. "I've never done hard drugs because of what they did to my life," says the 32-year-old Brooklyn native and -single mom of a 5-year-old son. "My mother put the fear in me at a very young age -because my father died of a heroin overdose when I was 2. It kind of ruined my life."
Turns out, it really is a dog's life. Canines dominate the latest list in TV Guide Magazine's 60th anniversary celebration, taking three of the top five spots and 20 places overall. But there's still room for cats, birds and barnyard critters, not to mention a dinosaur (sorry, Barney didn't make the cut!). We limited our picks to one animal per show so Looney Tunes, Muppets and Disney characters wouldn't hog all the attention.
Heidi Klum struts onto the Project Runway stage in Manhattan's garment district and addresses a group of the show's superfans, who are serving as models for the Sept. 19 episode. "I love Project Runway," she tells them. "It's my fifth baby, so to speak."
If that's the case, the real-life mother of four figuratively...
Liev Schreiber realizes it's ironic that he's chosen to meet for lunch at a downtown Manhattan café called the Smile. "Ray Donovan doesn't smile — it's not my fault!" he says with a laugh. "[Showtime president] David Nevins said to me, 'Could you maybe find a place to smile?' 'I had no idea I had permission. You want me to? I'll smile!' So you'll notice a bit more smiling."
The 45-year-old actor certainly has reason to grin these days:
It's the last day of shooting on the penultimate episode of USA's long-running spy hit Burn Notice, but if you had bet that the cast would be coasting to the finish line, you would get burned. At Burger King's former Miami headquarters — abandoned after they were damaged by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 — secret agent men Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell are lowering themselves into a man-made bay that runs alongside the industrial complex. (For Burn's purposes, it has been converted into a shady hacker's satellite-communications center.) Oh, and a real-life crocodile has made a surprise appearance, ominously swimming around in the water and, at one point, devouring a turtle.
Much has changed on the Unforgettable set since the drama about NYPD cop Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), who has near perfect memory, was canceled more than a year ago by CBS, then miraculously brought back to life. The action has moved from a grimy Queens precinct to the shiny, high-tech Manhattan Major Crimes Section, and the show's tone has been similarly lightened, in keeping with its off-season scheduling (the first of eight summer episodes aired July 28, with five more new installments to follow later).
Coby Bell and Bruce Campbell
Turns out Burn Notice might not be burned out after all. Even as the USA Network spy smash shoots its final episode in Miami, there's talk of a possible spinoff following the further adventures of unorthodox operatives Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) and...
Gabrielle Anwar just started shooting the final episode of USA Network's long-running hit Burn Notice in Miami today, but she's already booked her next project. She'll be co-producing and co-directing as well as appearing in a documentary about an unquestionably hot topic: the vagina.
"In my opinion, the...
