Weekend TV: Constantine, Tony and Gaga Cheek to Cheek, Death Comes to Pemberley

"All trench coat and arrogance" is how John Constantine describes his roguish, demon-fighting self. His business card reads "Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts," though he cautions "petty dabbler" may be closer to the mark, as "I hate to put on airs." Wielding his jaded, sardonic attitude as a shield to cloak him from the worst the netherworld has to offer, the wearily witty Constantine (as embodied by the appealingly droll Welsh actor Matt Ryan) is one ...read more

On the back of The Americans' hair and makeup trailer door is a photo collage of the cast and crew each in the same wig. It's not Clark or John Denver or any other of Philip's (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth's (Keri Russell) follicular get-ups on the FX series — but Felicity's famous curls.

"Isn't it hilarious? I love it," Russell, the erstwhile Felicity, tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's so great. I'm all about the hair!"

TV wigs: Tricks or treats? Vote now!

So is The Americans. The spy drama has never met a wig it didn't like, outfitting Russell and Rhys in such ridiculous and fantastic espionage 'dos, ranging from dowdy to sexy, that the wigs have become the true stars of the show.

"It's really been a wild experience," Peg Schierholz, the show's hair department head, says. "Lori [Hicks, the makeup head] and I had never intended for the wigs to blow up this way. It's really amazing how much people love them. We kept getting ...
