Law & Order: SVU
While her warrior-like V character is fighting to save her only child from evil lizards, Elizabeth Mitchell is also playing another role — one kiddies should fear. The beloved Lost alum guest stars on Law & Order: SVU on March 30 as June, a piano teacher accused of...
Welcome Back Kotter
After years of sending his regrets, John Travolta has finally agreed to reunite with his fellow Sweathogs for a Welcome Back, Kotter 35th anniversary reunion at April's TV Land Awards. (Perhaps Tom Hanks reconnecting with his former Bosom Buddies costars at last year's show had a little something to do with convincing him!)
Good for Travolta for hopping on board, considering he...
Fox's upcoming dinosaur drama Terra Nova will introduce a newly imagined birdlike breed called Slashers. Their trademark: bright-colored feathers — "purples, bright blues and deep reds," says the show's lead Jason O'Mara. "This is the first time we're going to see, in an entertainment context, what dinosaurs actually looked like."
Gotta admit, when I first heard ABC's Grey's Anatomy was staging a musical episode, I had serious doubts about what Patrick Dempsey (Derek) jokingly refers to as "Glee M.D." And I wasn't the only one.
"Ellen Pompeo [Meredith] was very much like, 'Tell me we're not going to sing and dance in the hall. This is crazy!'" recalls creator Shonda Rhimes, who dreamed up the risky concept as a love letter to fans. But after the cast's first script read-through, Rhimes says Ellen "came up to me and said, 'I never say I'm wrong, but I was wrong and I want to sing more!' She's having so much fun with it."
I'm sold, too...
"It was the most surreal experience of my life," Allison Janney says of dueting with five-time Grammy winner James Taylor for Mr. Sunshine's March 16 episode. The singer guest stars on the ABC comedy as Billy, the ex-husband of Janney's Crystal. Turns out the exes had a lounge act and reunite to sing Leon Russell's "A Song For You," which Janney says "is probably one of the hardest songs to sing for someone who hadn't sung since stepping off the 9 to 5 stage over a year earlier."
Alex O'Loughlin and Larisa Oleynik
Talk about pressure. Larisa Oleynik debuts on CBS' Hawaii Five-0 on March 21 as CIA analyst Jenna "K" Kaye, then returns for the season's last two episodes — giving her three shows to prove herself worthy of being signed as a permanent team member.
Fan fave Elizabeth Mitchell, who was nominated for a 2010 Emmy for her portrayal of Lost's tragic Juliet Burke and is now kicking lizard butt on ABC's V, has been signed for a horrifying guest role on NBC's Law & Order: SVU.
She'll be starring alongside returning guest star Jeremy Irons, who appeared earlier this season as the colorful Dr. Cap Jackson. Elizabeth will play an unmarried piano teacher who was the last person to see one of her students alive.
While SVU has tackled some unsettling topics during its twelve seasons, this one may take the cake...
Here's an early first glimpse at McFarlane Toys' new line of deluxe 6-inch Walking Dead action figures. This figure is of lead character Rick Grimes as he appears in the comic book series created by Robert Kirkman. Joining Rick will be popular comic character Michonne along with a Zombie Lurker and Zombie Roamer.
A second line of figures will depict the AMC television series versions of the characters, including actor Andrew Lincoln as Officer Grimes, as well as figures based Norman Reedus as the villainous Daryl Dixon and two zombies for Rick and Daryl to combat — a Zombie Walker and a Zombie Biter. Ouch! Both lines will hit specialty stores in the fall (the first in September...
