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:

Nothing gets the blood boiling and the early summer temperature rising quicker than a fix of werewolf and vampire lust.
Batman: Year One
Bruce Wayne was a one-man army with the world's greatest detective skills and the dream of striking fear in criminals' hearts. How he went from orphaned playboy to Dark Knight was the basis of a classic 1987 comic book by Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli, and is now retold in the faithfully hard-hitting animated film Batman: Year One, which goes on sale today on DVD, Blu-ray, digital download and on demand.

The Cleveland Show
The Cleveland Show geeks out for its Season 2 finale when the Brown/Tubbs family heads to Comic-Con (Sunday, 9:30/8:30c, Fox). Tired of being overshadowed by his wife, Donna, Cleveland wants to "find my thing, something that makes me utterly unique." In typical random fashion, he comes up with the idea to write his own comic book and peddle it at the annual pop-culture gathering in San Diego. His creation, Waderman (named for the rubber wading boots he wears), is described by The Simpsons' caustic übernerd Comic Book Guy (in the Best. Cameo. Ever.) as "an aquatic superhero who lacks the ability to swim — apparently he also has a superhuman tolerance for irony."
Michael Trucco has locked lips with the comely likes of Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff and Castle's Stana Katic. Now the 6-foot-3 40-year-old is playing Sarah Shahi's ex-husband with benefits in USA's new series Fairly Legal...
