Mandy Moore may find her way to TV this fall after all.
Moore, who was previously attached to ABC's Pulling, has landed the leading role opposite Benjamin McKenzie in CBS' The Advocates, TVGuide.com has learned.
In the drama pilot...
Should fans be worried about the future of Southland? Benjamin McKenzie has been tapped to star in the CBS pilot The Advocates.
McKenzie will play...
Aaron Ashmore has been granted another life after being killed off Smallville in 2009.
He's joining Syfy's Warehouse 13 to play ATF agent Steve Jinks, according to EW. Unlike his Smallville role as reporter Jimmy Olsen, Ashmore will play an agent who boasts at least one special power: the ability to tell when somebody is lying.
Cole Hauser (K-Ville) and C.C.H. Pounder (The Shield) have landed leads in The Tower, a CBS drama pilot about a group of Chicago reporters who don't break news so much as investigate it with the intensity of 1,000 hot lights. Per the Reporter, Hauser will play a crime reporter, while Pounder will serve as his newspaper's managing editor. MWM
He killed Lem Dont you remember his body his face You think you could just forget that huh Dont you think he deserves to die for what he didThose words screamed at Shane Vendrell by Vic Mackey helped mold a scene that had to be the most powerful one of the entire series Wow You knew Vic was going to do something harsh to Guardo if he found him but wow I mean wow I know Im saying that word a lot right now but that one word wow really sums up the boldness the intensity the determination the shock the brutality the hatred I could go on forever trying to describe the meeting of Guardo and Vic but nothing could do it justice so I choose wowThis whole season you could see the anger in Vics eyes and you could smell the revenge coming but despite everything thats happened over the previous five seasons even my eyes were wide open in shock this time around Guardo hung by a rope getting brutally beating by Vic with a monstrous metal ch
So the fact that Forest Whitaker wasnt going to be around after this episode was not a well-kept secret at all but I wasnt expecting the situation between him and Vic to go down like this I think I was somehow expecting Kavanaugh to get a surprise beating or take a bullet although then again hes too smart for that But it seems like he wasnt smart enough to realize that no one plays both sides quite like Vic Mackey Jons downfall of course was when he started planting evidence You could say his downfall was taking this case in the first place and I might agree But seriously when you think about it Vic has done so many things wrong from killing a cop through the money train that if Kavanaugh couldnt take him down based on the true facts then maybe hes just not as good as he thinks he is Vic was in his head so much that as a last-ditch effort he tried becoming him but even Dutch Boy saw through the load of crap that Kavanaugh wa
I thought of many ways to begin my first blog for The Shield and I think the best way is for you all to join me in saying two words hell yeah Honestly Ive never been this excited for a new season of a show I certainly havent watched every show in existence but of the ones I have this might be the only one without a misstep somewhere along the way So youll have to pardon me if my emotions get the best of me at points What can I say Im excited But first before we chat a moment of silence for Lem Whew It felt like an eternity between the time we saw Lem take a grenade and the start of this season didnt it Its all worth it though to see the absolute gore the unmatched anger on Vics face and to feel your eyes swelling as the show opens and closes with Johnny Cashs stark cover of Stings I Hung My Head I certainly ran the gamut of emotions with this episode I mean first how can you not feel for Lem He was extremely loyal to his crew and wasnt about t
CCH Pounder, The Shield
As FX's taut cop series The Shield returns for its sixth season (tonight at 10 pm/ET), it does so with arguably the cleanest cop in Farmington promoted to captain of the Barn — CCH Pounder's Det. Claudette Wyms. The Emmy-nominated actress, who excels in bringing gravitas to her roles, offered her take on last season's series-changing finale.
TV Guide: What did you think of the decision to kill off Lem [played by Kenneth Johnson]?CCH Pounder: Oh, it was horrific. We were [all] mortified when we read it, [because] you do become this sort of intimate team. [Johnson] was the one who took it with the most grace. I was really proud of him.
TV Guide: Claudette has inves
J.K. Simmons, The Closer
Are things about to heat up for ex-lovers Will Pope and Brenda Leigh Johnson on TNT's The Closer (Mondays at 9 pm/ET)? Sensing that an interdepartmental romance might be brewing sometime soon, TVGuide.com Q&A'd the assistant police chief's portrayer, J.K. Simmons, about the show's success and its possible move to the fall battlegrounds, while also seeking out some scoop on Spider-Man 3.
TVGuide.com: I'm looking at this scene shot of you in the new TV Guide, and you're curling dumbbells that are, what, 30, 40 lbs. each?
J.K. Simmons: I think those dumbbells were 80 lbs. [total]. I always do half [re
Question: Forest Whitaker and Kenny Johnson should be shoo-ins for best-supporting-actor Emmy nods. And if I could choose anyone to play Lem's replacement, I'd suggest Christian Kane. He's got the chops, he's in the right age group, and his time on Close to Home just came to an end. Answer: That's an interesting idea about Kane taking over for Johnson. Farmington could certainly use some eye candy. And I'm with you re: Whitaker getting an Emmy nod. Johnson, on the other hand, is a long shot. I just don't think he's on Emmy voters' radar. Heck, he's not even on FX's radar. The network's "For Your Consideration" ad in Variety this week only spotlighted Michael Chiklis, CCH Pounder and Whitaker. (Ironically, those are the same three we singled out in our Dream Emmy Ballot, which, BTW, will be posted in
