She's won an Oscar. She's starred in one of the most successful movies of all time. Now, Kate Winslet is about to conquer another first: television.
"It never occurred to me, beyond the moment of reading those scripts, 'Wow, this is television, therefore it's going to be different somehow,'" Winslet said Friday at the Television Critics Association's winter preview sessions. The actress is starring in HBO's 5-part adaptation of Mildred Pierce. "Sure we have more to shoot ... but the level of determination and level of focus was so much more intense than certainly any...
Joseph Fiennes, Claire Forlani, Jamie Campbell Bower
There's plenty of sword play and sex scenes in Starz' upcoming take on the legendary story of Camelot. But star Jamie Campbell Bower says those expecting "a beefy King Arthur" should keep looking.
"We find this character when he's in his late teens. What I didn't want to have was ...
Melissa and Joan Rivers
Joan Rivers has made an entire career out of being brutally honest, whether through vicious stand-up or her infamous red carpet critiques.
So it's no shocker that Rivers was more than game to take aim at everything from Oprah's new network to Jersey Shore during the Television Critics Association's winter previews.

Franklin & Bash
He's back on TNT. He's back in the courtroom playing a lawyer. But Mark-Paul Gosselaar says the similarities between his short-lived legal drama Raising the Bar and his upcoming series Franklin & Bash end there.

"Honestly, I miss working with [Raising the Bar creators] David Feige and Steven Bocho, but to play that character was ... he was so righteous....
Katie Cazorla may run The Painted Nail, a nail salon that caters to the likes of Teri Hatcher and Hilary Duff, but A-listers expecting special treatment should look elsewhere.
"It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity. If you have jacked-up nails, I'm gonna tell you," Cazorla said Wednesday at the Televisions Critics Association's winter preview session. Viewers may soon get to see that honesty in action when TV Guide Network premieres its new reality series, The Nail Files.

Retired at 35
When it came time to lure George Segal back to primetime television for TV Land's new sitcom Retired at 35, he had two mandates: his character would have to smoke cigars and play the banjo.
"I said [it was that] or no dice," the industry veteran, 76, joked Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn.'s winter preview session.
Added series creator and executive producer Chris Case: "There was no banjo in the original pilot script until George came on board. It's so collaborative, this medium. You go, you know what George Segal plays the banjo. Let's do that."
