See what Xena herself had to say
Star Trek's Bones is getting Human. Karl Urban, who plays Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy in the rebooted Trek films from J.J. Abrams, has landed the leading role in Abrams' futuristic buddy cop drama Human, TVGuide.com has learned. The pilot...
Spartacus star Lucy Lawless has been ordered to pay a fine and complete 120 hours of community service after she pled guilty to trespassing charges stemming from a protest on a New Zealand oil ship, The Associated Press reports.
The swords and sandals are about the only similarities between Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Xena: Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless says."They're so different from each other in almost every way," she tells TVGuide.com. "From the technology, the fight sequences, the sex scenes."Ah, yes, the sex scenes. In addition to the copious amounts of blood spilled on-screen, the Starz ancient Rome epic features boundary-pushing sex scenes that are about ...
After developing a large hero-worshipping following with 1995-to-1999's syndicated campfest Hercules, then as Gene Roddenberry's starship commander on 2000-to-2005's Andromeda, Kevin Sorbo is now trying his hand at the cowboy genre, as a preacher turned bounty hunter in Hallmark Channel's Avenging Angel (premiering Saturday at 9 pm/ET). TV Guide: This sounds like a dark Western. Kevin Sorbo: Usually Hallmark is sort of along the lines of G movies, but I'd give this more like a PG-13 — I think this is a big step for them. It's Pale Rider meets
On Army Wives, Barbara Eden will once again be married to a man in uniform. As first reported in the Ausiello Report vodcast, the I Dream of Jeannie star will play Victoria Grayson on the Aug. 12 episode. Along with her husband General Hugh Grayson (Robert Forster), she arrives on post to check up on things. No belly buttons this time around. It doesn’t hurt that the Lifetime show’s creator Katherine Fugate happens to be Eden’s niece. Fugate also has plans for an old friend from the days she was a writer on Xena: Warrior Princess. “I want to write a two-parter for Renee O'Connor (Xena’s bosom buddy Gabrielle) for the second season,” Fugate says. “We’ve stayed friends; she gave me my baby shower.” — Reporting by Ileane Rudolph
Lucy Lawless really should go on Fear Factor. The former Xena: Warrior Princess star had to fight off a swarm of gonzo grasshoppers earlier this year in the CBS TV-movie Locusts, and now in the sequel, the imaginatively titled Vampire Bats (Sunday at 9 pm/ET), she's battling a horde of... well, you get the idea. But she also weathered far more real storms this year, as you'll see in TVGuide.com's interview with the Kiwi. TVGuide.com: Vampire bats, locusts — if you had to be attacked by either, which would you prefer?Lucy Lawless: Ooh, I'm going to have to go with the locusts, I'm afraid. Hang on... I'm trying to think which is a quicker death. There
Xena is back, and she's taking names. Well, OK, not exactly. Lucy Lawless is back in the fantasy/sci-fi fold, playing D'Anna Friel, a pesky investigative journalist on Friday night's episode of Battlestar Galactica (airing at 10 pm/ET on Sci Fi Channel). Not only will the former chakram-throwing warrior princess look a bit different in her outer-space existence — Xena gone blonde, yo! — but Lawless will be brandishing her native New Zealand accent for the first time ever on screen. "I've always been hesitant to do that, because it felt kind of gimmicky," she says of going Kiwi with a character. "But because D'Anna is a journalist and has kind of, but not exactly, a tabloidy edge to her, I thought that going in with that kind of Australian tabloid/British-y thing was appropriate."
