The great thing about American Horror Story casting news is that it almost always seems kind of random and yet it also weirdly makes sense, no matter who is being brought on board the drama series, whether it's Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett or in this case, Wes Bentley.
Most actors could only dream of ever playing someone as fabulous as Sons of Anarchy’s Venus Van Dam, the troubled transgender character that The Shield star Walton Goggins quickly and easily turned into one of the show’s most memorable characters.
It's official! Denis Leary is heading back to FX for a new series! We knew this was a possibility back in January when FX gave Leary's comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll a pilot order. Today comes word that the cable channel has decided to move forward with the project, which is not only created by Leary, but will also star the comedian/actor as the lead character.
It's one thing to use a creepy-gross poster to market a horror series online, but it's apparently quite another to take the same approach with billboards. FX's billboard for The Strain succeeded in getting people's attention, but it wasn't getting the right kind of attention, as complaints about the disturbing image of a worm working its way into an eyeball yielded enough complaints to cause the networks to take them down.
Taking over Fargo's recently vacated timeslot, Gideon Raff's FX drama Tyrant settles in at Tuesday night with a premiere episode that reveals its potential, not to mention the amount of effort it took for this ambitious project to be made. While the first episode teases an intriguing new drama that will leave you wanting more, the episodes that follow don't quite satisfy.
A poorly delivered ending for a particular television season can retroactively taint everything you’ve seen before it. It’s a damning thing for a TV fan, and my view on FX’s Fargo is currently in limbo following its Season 1 finale “Morton’s Fork,” as my lack of enthusiasm is trying to convince me that I’ve been enjoying a wildly uneven show this entire time.
Coming to FX later this month is Howard Gordon and Craig Wright's drama Tyrant. FX released this first look video, which offers us some glimpses at the incredibly beautiful setting of this promising new drama, along with some insights into the story and what viewers should expect.
Fargo and The Strain are getting the Mondo poster treatment, courtesy of the ATX Television Festival and FX. The new posters have been presented in anticipation of the world premiere episode for The Strain and the ninth episode screening of Fargo at the Austin festival this weekend.
On May 28, filming began on FX’s down and dirty biker drama Sons of Anarchy. Luckily, this means casting news is revving up, and it looks like a new sheriff is coming to Charming, California, and her name is Annabeth Gish.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t at least partly suspicious that FX’s upcoming horror series The Strain wasn’t just some elaborate social media prank, considering the abundance of creepy footage-free teasers that have been raining down upon the Internet in recent weeks. My fears are allayed now with the first actual trailer, giving us a really good look at what this series will be.
If FX's goal with these teasers for The Strain is to make us seriously uncomfortable, they're succeeding. The latest promo offers us a big jar of heart, which issues one pulsing beat before the roaring wormy thing arrives and fixes its face against the glass.
It has been a huge week for TV, with the upfronts laying out everything that the basic cable networks will be offering viewers for the next year or so. Not to be outdone, the quality control specialists at FX and FXX have released their summer schedule, covering both returning shows and those new to the airwaves.
There are moments in Louis C.K.'s FX comedy series when the show just nails it. And sometimes, the scene isn't even that funny. It's not even trying to be. It's just real. Take last night's "So Did The Fat Lady," which ended with the scene in this video.
When we first heard that American Horror Story Season 4 would have a carnival theme, our first guess -- or fear -- was that a scary clown would be included. Because in a drama series this creepy, with a planned carnival theme in the works, a scary clown seems not only inevitable, but also kind of required, right?
Louis C.K. disappointed fans when he decided to take a brief sabbatical from his FX series Louie, leaving us without the schlubby middle aged mansploits last year. The comedian said he wanted to recharge, and maybe to a degree reinvent the series. So now that we’re on the cusp of Louie’s return, did he achieve any of his goals? To be honest, the first four episodes of the new season are odd to define.
