Do you have any new info on The Blacklist's new season? — Roger
How about some exclusive casting news? Tony-nominated Broadway veteran Norm Lewis — who is currently starring in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera and did a stint last season on Scandal — has been tapped to play J.P. Laskin, a business associate of Red's who doesn't exactly agree with his recent moves in the ongoing war with Berlin. In fact, I hear Laskin may even be tempted to switch sides. Of course, once Red finds out about the betrayal, he'll probably make the choice for him. Perhaps playing a "phantom" will come in handy!
I'm really curious to see how Nick and Jess are doing after their break-up last season on New Girl. What will their dynamic be like when the show returns? — Lindsay
Four months have passed since Nick and Jess were last romantically involved, but unfortunately for Jess, it's been a bit of a slow summer in the love department...
Things are heating up on this week's Killer Women.
In this exclusive sneak peek at Monday's episode, Molly (Tricia Helfer) and Dan (Marc Blucas) get a little dirty while cleaning off in the shower before a big fundraiser.
He's a hunkier Chuck with the mad fighting skills, reckless bravado — and propensity toward angst — of Alias's Sydney Bristow. Meet TV's new Six Billion Dollar Man, Gabriel Vaughn, who you'll recognize as Sawyer from Lost. And Josh Holloway is very much the main reason to tune into CBS's Intelligence (Tuesday, 9/8c), a proficient if initially perfunctory action thriller that benefits immeasurably from its star's gruff, bluff machismo. Although a little less brooding (over a long-missing wife who might be a terrorist) would make Gabriel, and Intelligence, a lot more fun.
Female Texas Rangers are few and far between and who better to join their ranks than beloved badass Tricia Helfer — at least on TV.
Killer Women (premieres Tuesday, 10/9c, ABC) stars Helfer as Molly Parker, a Texas Ranger whose gender certainly influences her work but never defines her. "She's tough, but she's not one-note," Helfer tells TVGuide.com. "She's got her work, she's got her funny side and her vulnerable side." She's even got a bit of a quirky side, playing trumpet every week at a local bar.
Both raised on a ranch and growing up quite tomboyish, Helfer found it easy to relate to Molly right off the bat. And though she doesn't play the trumpet, Helfer did play clarinet in marching band. "I felt very close to her right when I read her for the first time," the actress explains.
USA has benched Necessary Roughness for good.
The football drama has been canceled after three seasons, TVGuide.com has confirmed. "We are proud of this show and its writers, which had a unique ability to address topical subjects before they unfolded in real life on the sports pages," USA said in a statement Tuesday. "We want to thank Liz Kruger and...
