Get your motor running: Iconoclastic actor Peter Fonda has signed on to guest star on an upcoming episode of NBC's The Blacklist.
Fonda will play Geoff Perl, a CEO and philanthropist who funds millions of dollars for animal rights groups. Producers are mum on the character beyond that, but hint that he's not on Red Reddington's list. The episode will air Monday, Oct. 27 at 10/9c.
Paul Reubens — the actor sometimes known as Pee-Wee Herman — joins NBC's The Blacklist for at least two episodes next month, and TV Guide Magazine has the first look at his character.
Reubens plays Mr. Vargas, a mysterious fixer for the underground criminal world. He first appears in the episode "Dr. Linus Creel," which airs on Monday, Oct. 6 at 10/9c. In the episode, Red (James Spader) warns Liz (Megan Boone) that a social-psychological experiment may be behind a series of killings at the hands of seemingly nonviolent people.
Get your daddy theories ready because The Blacklist is back to toy with every one of them.
The NBC crime drama returns for its second season Monday at 10/9c and picks up a few months after the self-styled "concierge of crime" Red Reddington (James Spader) and FBI Special Agent Liz Keen (Megan Boone) agree to continue their odd, ambiguously familial work relationship. Their main goal is take down the villainous Berlin (Peter Stormare), who is targeting Red and isn't afraid to kill off any FBI agents who are protecting him.

What will Emma and Hook's dating life be like on Once Upon a Time? — Val
The good news: The producers are going to let them go out somewhere other than Granny's Diner. The bad news: "It's going to be tricky for the two of them," executive producer Adam Horowitz says. "Just because we saw their feelings reach a new level at the end of last season doesn't mean that that's the end of the story." And Emma may be the problem. "Emma is obviously a person who has a tough time trusting people and letting her guard down," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. "Sometimes you may feel something for somebody but your feelings hold you back."

Got any scoop on the final season of Fringe? — Samuel
NATALIE: Anyone who's been lulled into a false sense of security that September's premonition of Olivia dying in every timeline already came true last season might be in for a rude awakening this year. We're not saying Olivia is definitely going to die — please, no! — but executive producer J.H. Wyman was certainly coy about it. "There will be death in the final season," he says. "Whenever there's a war, there are going to be casualties. I think they're going to be unexpected." Yes, that sounds like multiple deaths to us too!
Now that you've seen the Castle premiere, what can you tell us about "the morning after"? — Brittney

Christian Bale, Pee Wee Herman
Tired of Christian Bale's super-husky Batman voice? Maybe you'll like this better.
On Wednesday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) used his distinctive voice to overdub a TV spot for the hotly anticipated Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.
The result? A hilarious clip that you should just watch for yourself below.
Are you excited for Dark Knight Rises? Anyone else think Pee-Wee should do the voiceover for all movie trailers?
