Glee's Thriller of a Super Bowl Episode
Finn (Cory Monteith) fills in for the late Vincent Price to provide the spooky narration for the Fox hit's Super Bowl-episode Thriller tribute. "I'm also one of the zombie folk, which requires about three and a half hours of prosthetic makeup," says Cory. And it sounds as though Artie may be ...
Pop singer JoJo has been cast in a special episode of CBS's Hawaii Five-0 that will air after the AFC Championship game on Sunday, Jan. 23. The 20-year-old will play Courtney Russell, the daughter of a Tsunami Warning Center scientist who goes missing on the eve of a big storm hitting the Honolulu coast...
With Batman locked up by Warner Bros.' feature-film department, NBC's The Cape may be the closest thing we'll get to a Dark Knight TV series in the foreseeable future. And that's just fine by creator Tom Wheeler, who has been a major comic-book geek (mostly Marvel) since he was 5. "There's a lot of inspiration," says Wheeler, who has also woven in elements of his other obsession: magic. "I've always been a big fan of Harry Houdini, escapism and illusion."
SyFy's new Battlestar Galactica prequel pilot, Blood & Chrome, has begun casting its three lead characters — roles that shed light on what this new show is about. The series is set in the tenth year of the first Cylon war and centers around hotshot rookie pilot William Adama (played by Edward James Olmos in the 2004-09 series) as he is assigned to Galactica, the Colonial fleet's newest battlestar.
Adama will be in his early-to-mid 20s, and is described as Tom Cruise's character in Top Gun — a cocky and fearless jock. His experience as a fighter pilot thus far has been limited to simulations, but he can't...
V: Morena Baccarin and Jane Badler
Talk about mommy issues! When V returns for Season 2 tonight at 9/8c on ABC, we learn that Anna (Morena Baccarin) has been imprisoning her equally sinister reptilian mother, Diana (Jane Badler, from the original V), in a dungeon aboard her spaceship for the past 15 years. We asked Baccarin to quiz Badler about lizards, family values and her new incarnation.
Debra Messing, who cemented her comedic brilliance by winning the 2003 lead actress Emmy Award for her role as Grace Adler on NBC's Will & Grace, is returning to the network in a dramatic role. Debra has signed on for a February sweeps episode of Law & Order: SVU in a role that reminds me very much of CNN crime fighter Nancy Grace.
SVU executive producer Neal Baer describes Debra's character as...
First Jane Badler, and now Marc Singer! The '80s hunk, who played the original V's strapping lizard slayer Mike Donovan, will appear in the season finale of ABC's updated V as all-new freedom fighter Lars Tremont.
"It was an inevitability," says the confident star, now 62. "You have to include the personalities who started this dynamic. As V grows, it becomes like a big, hungry animal needing nourishment to grow more and more muscle." Whatever you say, Marc, although I might have gone with a reptilian analogy...
You can always expect drama on Grey's Anatomy when Meredith and Lexie's father, Thatcher (Jeff Perry), drops in on his doctor daughters. And there's more in store on the February 10 episode of the ABC drama, when old Thatch returns complaining of stomach pains. "They suspect he's rejecting the [partial] liver Meredith gave him," says Jeff, who is unaware of the character's ultimate fate.
But what causes Lexie (Chyler Leigh) the most heartache is seeing her daddy dating Danielle (All My Children alum Alexa Havins), a heavily tattooed girl her same age...
I always look forward to the December mornings when nominations for the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards are announced. I phone up my favorite stars to offer my congratulations — and land some juicy scoop in return.
This year I was most excited for Glee's Chris Colfer, who at age 20 is up for a Golden Globe (airing January 16 on NBC) and a Screen Actors Guild Award (airing January 30 on TNT and TBS). After coming out of the closet and battling homophobia, will Chris' Kurt finally find love with Blaine on the February 8 Valentine's Day episode? I hear the two will be crooning Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone" outside a Gap store as Blaine prepares to profess his love. "There might be a development," hints Chris.
