Tensions may be running high in the house on Thursday's Graceland.

Somehow, Jackie continues to avoid rock bottom. During this season of Nurse Jackie, she got around a surprise intervention and then flirted with sobriety, though not by choice — her drug dealer died, Eddie cut her off and her kid's plea for prescription drugs forced her into temporary withdrawal.
But by the end of Monday's Season 3 finale, Jackie's stars had realigned once more: She was still using, yes, but O'Hara was back on her side, she had moved into the power position with Kevin and her all-important career remained intact. Could Jackie be the world's — or just TV's -- luckiest drug addict?

(NBC reps, however, wouldn't confirm this casting news.) But the soft-spoken actor wouldn't reveal much about himself or his new character's superpower. "It's not good," he says simply. Sounds like his character on The Wire.
When Showtime adapted the Barbershop film franchise into a series (Sundays at 10 pm/ET), actors' faces weren't the only thing that changed. Some character names got a tweak, too. Case in point: The resident impressionable foreigner known as Dinka on the big screen is now Yinka (that is, an actual African name). Here, Yinka's portrayer, Gbenga Akinnagbe tells TVGuide.com what it's like to inherit a film role, why you absolutely should not let him near your hair and why Nigerian actors are a force to be reckoned with.
