Inside Sleepy Hollow's Shocking Season Finale

Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison

The end is nigh for Sleepy Hollow's first season. And it looks extremely...busy. It's a stinging-cold December morning at Wilmington, North Carolina's EUE/Screen Gems Studios. In the nearby woods, a stuntwoman wearing a low-cut, corseted frock is being pulled through the air on a thick cord and dropped nose-first onto a safety mat. "Can she be yanked even harder?" director Ken Olin (thirtysomething) asks the crew member at the other end of the rope. Yes, she certainly can. Yards away... read more

Criminal Minds' Thomas Gibson on Directorial Debut: "It Was So Much Fun"

Ken Olin, Thomas Gibson

Thomas Gibson was prepared for the worst. The Criminal Minds star makes his series directorial debut with Wednesday's episode and had a way easier first day than he expected.

"I was hoping for some of [the actors] to give me a hard time, but no one did!" he tells "But [joking aside], everyone was great and extremely supportive of me, which certainly made the whole experience even better."

Walker On By: Brothers & Sisters Season 2 Preview

Emily Van Camp, Matthew Rhys and Dave Annable, Brothers and Sisters

The Brothers & Sisters ensemble (sans the actors who play Nora, Robert, Kitty and Sarah) recently walked a red carpet outside the San Antonio Winery (where the show has filmed on occasion) in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the release of the prime-time serial drama's Season 1 DVD release. was on the scene to get the scoop on that as well as Season 2, which debuts on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 10 pm/ET, on ABC. Arguably, the biggest shock twist at the end of the show's freshman year was Uncle Saul possibly being gay. (Those longing looks with guest star Michael Nouri sure implied it, didn't they?) Does Ron Rifkin (Saul) know anyone who dealt with their sexual preferences later in life? "Are you kidding?" he responds rhetorically to "All of us [know someone like Saul]." That is, if Nora's brother read more

Play of the Week

There are moments in this week's episode where everything I think Brothers & Sisters [Sundays at 10 pm/ET, on ABC] should come together perfectly; comedy and tragedy coexist — just like they do in real life, turning, dancing with each other in perpetuity. The episode has it all — male passions run amok, female passions threaten to cause thermonuclear war, farce, drunkenness, sorrow and laughter. In my humble opinion, a great episode. There are moments of acting in "Grapes of Wrath" that took my breath away when I saw it. One in particular stands out. I don't want to say too much, but it takes place in a kitchen during a showdown between Nora and Holly. Both actresses, Sally Field and Patty Wettig are real and funny and frightening in a way that brings to mind some of the great turns that John Cassavetes managed to capture on film — I'm thinking of Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under the Influence in particular. The camera comes close in so as to deprive them of any pri... read more

Emily VanCamp on Losing Everwood, Gaining Brothers & Sisters

Indulge me while I do something completely out of character: Toot my own horn. As you know, back in August I publicly pressured Brothers & Sisters executive producer Greg Berlanti to cast his former Everwood ingenue Emily VanCamp in the pivotal role of Rebecca, the 20-year-old byproduct of Holly's affair with Nora's late hubby, William. Jump ahead five months and guess who was just tapped to play Rebecca? That's right — Emily freakin' VanCamp! "The truth is, you do deserve some credit," Berlanti concedes. "The candlelight vigil you've had for her in this role really made a difference." Of course, it'd be disingenuous for me to not point out that VanCamp — who makes her debut on Feb. 18 — also had the support of some other influential players, namely Berlanti, fellow executive producer Ken Olin, and VanCamp's TV mom, Patricia Wettig. "Patty is over the moon," declares Olin of his real-life wife and colleague. "She loves her." So how's the woman at the center of thi... read more
