Evan Rachel Wood
If you were alive and at all interested in pop culture in 2003, you probably remember Vanity Fair's "It's Totally Raining Teens!" issue. The cover featured all the hottest young starlets of the new millennium: Amanda Bynes, the Olsen twins, Mandy Moore, Hilary Duff, Alexis Bledel, Evan Rachel Wood, Raven-Symone and Lindsay Lohan. But for Wood, the cover was anything but the fresh-faced celebration it was meant to be.
The Wire Reunion, PaleyFest
In an age where television is dominated by reboots, re-imaginings and "event series" sequels, there is at least one acclaimed show you shouldn't expect to see back on your TV screen: HBO's The Wire.
Despite being considered by critics and legions of adoring fans (many of whom never watched the show during its actual low-rated run) to be the greatest TV drama of all time, co-creator and executive producer David Simon made it abundantly during a reunion panel at New York PaleyFest Thursday night that he has no interest in...
As Ebola continues to spread across the world, Ridley Scott and producer Lynda Obst have decided to keep moving forward with a limited series about the fatal virus.
It looks like we've finally found something to replace the Smash-shaped hole in our heart and its name is Peter Pan Live!
Based on the poster for NBC's latest attempt at a live musical, this retelling is going to be the epitome of hot mess. And not in the way The Sound of Music Live! was a mess but took itself very seriously. Everything about the Peter Pan Live! poster promises pure campy goodness — from the glitter encircling everyone's least favorite Girls star Allison Williams to Christopher Walken's beauty mark. (Seriously. What is up with that?)
WGN America's critically acclaimed drama Manhattan, about the birth of the atomic bomb, presumably ends its freshman season this Sunday with at least a metaphorical bang. The show, which just landed a second season order, hails from executive producer Sam Shaw, who's become a bit of an expert when it comes to period pieces.
Victoria Rowell, Harry Lennix, Davetta Sherwood
Girls just wanna have fun — with voodoo potions, satanic séances and good old-fashioned murder! The Fright Night Files (Saturday, Oct. 18,8/7c), a TV One film aimed primarily at African-American women, stars Victoria Rowell (The Young and the Restless), Harry Lennix (The Blacklist), Lynn Whitfield (Without a Trace), Elise Neal (The Hughleys) and Sean Blakemore (General Hospital) in three tales of deadly romance and supernatural vengeance. It's about damn time.
Some milestones can't help but make a longtime TV viewer feel a bit long in the tooth. Such is the case this Sunday, as Fox's The Simpsons marks a full quarter-century of spooky satire with its 25th annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween trilogy (8/7c), which strikes a nostalgic chord from its opening fanfare, echoing the classic (and still-missed) theme from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show — with a macabre twist, naturally.
Robin Lord Taylor
Gotham's Oswald Cobblepot certainly isn't wasting any time working his way up the food chain.
Since his return to Gotham, the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) has quickly infiltrated the ranks of the Maroni crime organization and also buddied up with Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie). "He and Gordon now both need each other," Taylor says...
