Yung "Woo" Hwang
Woo Hwang may have essentially given away $1 million during the Survivor: Cagayan finale, but you'd never know it from speaking to him. The Season 28 runner-up says he's still proud of his game, and that his goal was to play with the same traits he values in his everyday life.
"I didn't walk away with the million dollars, but with all the Team Woo fans out there, all the love and support I've been getting about being an inspiration to their life, that I'm a hero to their kids, that they look at me as a role model — wow," Woo tells TVGuide.com. "And to play a game that's so grueling and [requires] lying and cheating and stealing to win a million bucks, to be portrayed as someone who people can to look up to ... deep down inside, I've won it all. I feel like a millionaire already."
In the end, Survivor: Cagayan came down to two people with completely opposing life philosophies. On the one hand was Woo Hwang, whose goal in the game was to preserve the integrity and loyalty he lives by in the non-Survivor world — even though doing so essentially cost him $1 million. On the other hand was eventual winner Tony Vlachos, who has no regrets about saying and doing anything he could — including orchestrating a record number of blindsides and betraying nearly all of his allies — in order to be the last man standing.
"When you're in a game where the stakes are so high, you have to distinguish what's a game and what's life," Tony told TVGuide.com Thursday, one day after he was crowned the winner ofSurvivor's 28th season. "What I am in the game had nothing to do with who I am in life. I did what I had to do in that type of game. If that game was about being honorable and being loyal and being truthful, that's exactly how I would play it. I played the game exactly how I needed to play it to get to the end. ... Nothing means anything on Survivor except keeping your torch lit."
Director Bryan Singer has filed a motion to dismiss a sex abuse lawsuit that was filed against him last month by Michael Egan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The X-Men: Days of Future Past director is claiming lack of jurisdiction, citing a deposition Egan gave in 2003 that states Singer was never in Hawaii with him and never sexually abused him. In his lawsuit, Egan claims that Singer sexually abused him from age 15 to 17 and flew him to Hawaii for sex. Singer says he was in Canada working on X-Men during the period of time Egan says the trips to Hawaii took place.
Terry O'Quinn, Ramon Rodriguez
At the end of the first episode of Fox's new drama Gang Related (Thursday, 9/8c), viewers may be left wondering whether they should actually be rooting for the main character, Det. Ryan Lopez, according to star Ramon Rodriguez.
"In the pilot, something very dramatic happens early on," Rodriguez tells TVGuide.com. "I think people will question, is he a good person? Is this a good guy? But...
Kristin Lehman, Louis Ferreira. Brendan Penny
Detective Angie Flynn is married to her work on ABC's Motive, and that's completely fine with actress Kristin Lehman.
"I love the fact that people just want to see this woman not fall into the same conventions so easily," Lehman tells TVGuide.com. "I go back and forth on [wanting her to have a love interest]. ... I don't want to say no to a romance just for the sake of avoiding convention, but I just feel like if we do ever explore that, that won't be her main focus, ever. And I think that's really interesting, because I don't know very many female protagonists on television where their romantic relationship isn't their main relationship. And I really value that.

Girl Meets World
Girl Meets World's premiere is still more than a month away, but fans can listen to the theme song now.
Terry O'Quinn is accustomed to playing characters who live in a moral gray area (or smoky black area, as the case was on Lost). But on the new Fox drama Gang Related, O'Quinn's character doesn't even realize how murky the waters he inhabits really are.
