Jenni Baird, The 4400
In the season premiere of USA Network’s The 4400, we not only met the rather freaky Graham Holt, we also were unceremoniously introduced to the new head of NTAC, one Meghan Doyle. Who is this newcomer that's been thrust upon us? What happened to original boss lady Nina Jarvis? And might Meghan have designs on something more "romantic" than keeping an eye on the extra crispies? TVGuide.com invited Aussie actress Jenni Baird to spill Meghan’s secrets.
TVGuide.com: Welcome to the show! I enjoyed your first early scenes. I was getting a soft/tough Rene Russo vibe from you….Jenni Baird: Oh, really? Isn’t that interesting? I watched it for the first time, so it was all new for me. I think the character is quite different from everybody else, so I’m interested to see how people dea
Question: The 4400 scoop, please!
Answer: Casting scoop! Traveler's Pascale Hutton has been cast as Abigail Hunnicott, the new nerdy girl at NTAC and a potential love interest for Marco. Smallville fans will remember Hutton as the woman Clark met in the Phantom Zone last season.
I suppose its time to add Seattle to my running list of the most dangerous places on television. As if Meredith Grey and Co. werent bad enough, we were almost subject to growing legions of 16-year-olds with really bad taste in clothing and music (and gym class activities thumb wrestling, anyone?). But seriously, this Promicin distribution is shaping up to be a catastrophe in and of itself.The past three seasons have all been about controlling a limited group of people with unpredictable powers, but now the whole premise has been turned on its head. What do you do when people are given a choice in the matter and that group expands? The 4400 were all torn away from their families, and many seemed at best ambivalent and at worst downright scared regarding their abilities. Remember Maia just wanting to be a normal kid two years ago? Graham Holt reveled in his power and grew more ambitious by the minute. Basically, the third-season finale (50/50) and last n...
Billy Campbell, The 4400
In the fourth-season opener of USA Network's The 4400 (airing Sunday at 9 pm/ET), Billy Campbell's enigmatic Jordan Collier deals with the lethal fallout of a drug he distributed to give people superpowers. Clearly, Campbell's come a long way from Once and Again's Rick.
TV Guide: If you were a 4400, what power would you want to have? Billy Campbell: I'd like to be invisible. Then I could hang around the Oval Office. Enough said.
TV Guide: Do you see Jordan as a messiah figure? Campbell: I don't see him as anything, really. I don't write him. I tend to try to not play him in any predictable way. I simply believe he wants to change the world.
TV Guide: How does he cope with all the deaths that handing out Promicin
The 4400 starts up its fourth season this Sunday night, June 17, at 9 pm on USA. In the meantime, check out some clips from seasons past in our online video guide.
Question: Got any scoop to get us revved up for The 4400's new season?
Answer: An important female power player will enter the scene and she'll have a mysterious connection to Tom.
Cagney & Lacey - Season 1 courtesy MGM (Video and DVD)
It's Wednesday, so you know what that means.... It's "Pick of the Week" time!May 8 brings us a couple of Season 1 sets, a couple of complete series sets, with the only volume release being Voltron.I'm drawn toward choosing from two releases this week Cagney & Lacey Season 1 and The 4400 Season 3. I decided to go with Cagney because it's a long-awaited series, though The 4400 has more bonus material, a better transfer and better audio. But it's a newer show, so that's to be expected.I've been forever linked to Cagney & Lacey for obvious reasons (hint: it has something to do with my last name). Some people have a hard time spelling "Lacey" so I would just say, "Like Cagney & Lacey" and they would realize it's "Lacey" and not "Lacy." Cagney & Lacey, for those who aren't aware, started as a TV movie, then received a short first season before airing a complete second season. Sharon Gless joined the series in Season 2, so MGM decided it was best to release these epi...
Playthings is probably the closest a Season 2 episode has come to a Season 1 standalone episode The first half of this season just had a different feel to it Because of the death of Big Daddy Winchester each episode was blanketed in grief as well as mucho mucho angst Ive pretty much loved most of these episodes especially In My Time of Dying Crossroad Blues and Croatoan but the cases they tackled felt different because the boys were also in the midst of mourning as well as expanding their universe with the introduction of the Roadhouse crew With Croatoan and Hunted the angst evolved into the secret and Sams destiny which will probably take us on out through the rest of the season I would imagine And while there was definitely Sam angst laced throughout the entire episode there was also a lot of humor and enough cute brotherly moments to satisfy any Supernatural fan They were researching in their hotel room together walking down halls investiga

America Ferrera Plays: Betty Suarez, the sweet, style-deficient assistant to the editor of a top fashion rag. Previous experience: Starred in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.Betty's bio: Smarter than her wardrobe, our heroine is her boss' best asset.

Question: Anything new on The Unit front?
Answer: Producers are adding some fresh young blood to the show in the form of sci-fi babe Summer Glau (Firefly, The 4400), who's joining the cast as the girlfriend of a new Unit member, played by Daniel Wisler. Also, a little birdie tells me Lee Tergesen will show up in an early episode playing — what else? — a creep.
