It's been a long time since TV was populated by righteous dudes of few words in cowboy hats. Timothy Olyphant's lawmen on Deadwood and Justified have a vengeful streak, and on Hatfields & McCoys you couldn't hit a hero with a Winchester if you tried. That's the hole Longmire executive producers Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny and Greer Shephard wanted to fill.
Robert Taylor, A.Martinez and Bailey Chase
Longmire is sticking around.
A&E's modern-day Western, starring Robert Taylor, has been renewed for a second season, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Deadline.com first reported the news. The series debuted earlier this month to...
Katee Sackhoff and Cassidy Freeman
Get ready to geek out simply because two geek goddesses are in the same room at the same time.
On this week's Longmire, Walt (Robert Taylor) and Vic (Katee Sackhoff) enlist Cady (Cassidy Freeman) to help with a case after...
Cassidy Freeman is no longer Superman's one-time enemy-turned-ally nor is she a centuries-old vampire anymore. She's left those sci-fi/fantasy roles behind to play the no-nonsense daughter of the dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming, Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor).
In the new A&E series Longmire, Freeman's Cady had dreams of the big city, but after the death of her mother, she took it upon herself to help her father Walt get back on his feet, much to his chagrin and to her own frustrations. Little does her father know that she's been keeping secrets, the least of which is that she's dating someone already very familiar to him. To get the scoop on Longmire's father-daughter relationship, TVGuide.com turned to Freeman, who also discusses her transition from sci-fi to Western and more:
Katee Sackhoff has traded in her viper flight suit for a badge and gun.
The Battlestar Galactica alum stars alongside Robert Taylor in A&E's new drama Longmire, a modern-day western that follows the life of the recently widowed Sheriff Walt Longmire and his deputy, Victoria Moretti, as they navigate the varying degree of crimes — from the most mundane (shooting sheep) to the most gruesome (sex trafficking) — in a small town in Wyoming.

Where Walt is quiet, yet dedicated and unflappable, Vic offers the fish-out-of-water comedic timing in this slower-paced, heavily character-driven drama, which also stars Bailey Chase as another deputy looking to unseat Walt as the Sheriff, Lou Diamond Phillips as Walt's liaison to the crimes that take place on the Indian reservation, and Smallville's Cassidy Freeman as Walt's daughter Cady.
To get acquainted with the new series, TVGuide.com turned to Sackhoff, who calls Longmire "a throwback to the old Westerns," which could play in the show's favor following the recent raving success of History's period miniseries Hatfields & McCoys. Get the scoop:
Why are Damon and Rebekah on the same side of danger in The Vampire Diaries season finale?
The last time viewers saw these two, a scorned Rebekah (Claire Holt) was torturing Damon (Ian Somerhalder) for using her (i.e. sleeping with her) so that Sage (Cassidy Freeman) could read her thoughts. But it seems in our exclusive look at the season's final episode, "The Departed," that the two are together, both shocked and terrified, of something -- or someone -- greater than them.

Could it be Esther (Alice Evans) attempting to carry out her plan to kill off her family? Has Klaus (Joseph Morgan) gone over the edge and threatening his own sister? Or is it split-personality Alaric (Matt Davis) in his dangerous psycho killer mode who is after them?

Smallville fans: Meet the vampire version of Tess Mercer.
Cassidy Freeman, who portrayed the fearless illegitimate daughter of Lionel Luthor on the CW superhero drama, will make her first appearance on Thursday's episode of The Vampire Diaries, in which she plays a ruthless and seductive vampire who was something of a mentor to a younger Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Before the "Delena" fans start to worry, know this: Sage has her eye on another vampire who's a bit more powerful. TVGuide.com caught up with Freeman to get the scoop on her Diaries debut.

The Vampire Diaries is flashing back 100 years.
In the upcoming episode titled "1912," Damon recalls a time when he met a woman named Sage (guest star Cassidy Freeman). As the Smallville alum previously told us, Sage is "pretty badass when you first meet her, and [she] gets herself into some very physical situations."
But we're not talking about getting physical in the bedroom. In the new pictures released from the episode, it seems Sage is quite the boxer.
