Exclusive: Rubicon Boss Makes a Case for Second Season

Rubicon

From the beginning, AMC's Rubicon was a slow burn.

Although the show eventually won the approval of many critics, the show's pacing and complicated conspiracy storytelling resulted in a very small — but passionate — viewership, leading to the assumption that last week's Season 1 finale would double as a series finale.

Rubicon: Conspiracy or commentary? "Democracy is a very fragile vessel," producer says

But based on how that episode ended, executive producer Henry Bromell didn't get the memo. American Policy Institute analyst Will Travers (James Badge Dale) finally gathered enough evidence to suggest that his boss, Truxton Spangler (Michael Cristofer), was using API intelligence to manipulate world events for profit. And though Will was convinced Truxton was behind the explosion of an oil tanker in the Gulf of Mexico that could create war with Iran, Will was unable to take Truxton down.

"I just don't believe in wrapping it up that simply," Bromell tells TVGuide.com... read more

David Boreanaz (Bones), Jenna Fischer (The Office), Justin Chambers (Grey's Anatomy)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any news about what's coming up for Alex on Grey's Anatomy? — Emma
ADAM:
He'll have a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment of flirtation with Lexie in the Oct. 28 episode, but his primary focus will be on a young girl who needs her trachea replaced. And though Alex maintains his stint in pediatrics has nothing to do with him being a softie for the kids, you can judge for yourself when he sings a few bars of a Justin Bieber tune to calm his patient while she's getting an MRI.

I heard that the guy from Justified was going to be on The Office. What's that all about? —Carl
MICKEY:
Show some respect, Carl! The man's name is Timothy Olyphant, and he'll play Danny on The Office. Danny's a really successful, kinda hot salesman who works for a Dunder Mifflin competitor... read more

Mad Men Finale: How Long Will Faye Stand Beside Don?

Mad Men

Cara Buono had no idea when she joined the cast of Mad Men's fourth season that she would still be hanging around for the season finale.

"I was told it was going to be a couple episodes, and it blossomed into this full story line," Buono tells TVGuide.com. "I wish I had a better word for amazing, because that's all I keep saying. But it really has been amazing."

Buono plays Dr. Faye Miller, a consultant who came to Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce to do consumer research. She quickly caught the eye of newly single Don Draper (Jon Hamm), but Faye didn't immediately hop into Don's bed like so many other women on the show... read more

In Focus: For The Mentalist's Simon Baker, Good Looks Plus Hard Work Equals Success

Simon Baker

Go ahead and stare at Simon Baker. Gawk at his curly golden locks and his winning smile. He doesn't mind, really.

"It doesn't bother me because I know time is ticking," the 41-year-old Baker tells TVGuide.com. "I've been doing this for almost 20 years, and I'm able to see myself age on film. Eventually I know what I'm going to become — I've seen my father."

When Bruno Heller was looking to cast a leading man to play the role of Patrick Jane in The Mentalist, he was won over by Baker's looks as well. But he quickly learned there was much more beneath the surface. "What Jane does is get in people's physical space and inside their heads, and in order to do that, you have to be someone that people want to be close to, whether they know it or not," Heller says. "It needed a very magnetic personality playing the part.

Look back at Simon Baker's most memorable roles

"Simon has a physical and mental grace. He's always switched on — he's always alert, always alive," Heller continues. "If you watch him working on a stage, he's never just going through the lines. He's always looking for the extra grace notes. It's actually a much tougher job. Very few actors can do the hard physical work that must be done on a show like this."

But back in the late 1980s, when Baker first began acting in commercials in his native Australia, he laughed at the idea of considering acting a form of labor... read more
