Inspired by tonight's premiere of NBC's new drama Do No Harm, we came up with our list of characters with a hidden dark side. These aren't merely characters leading secret lives, or suffering from some uncontrollable Jekyll & Hyde complex. These are characters who present themselves with one personality to the public, often including their seemingly closest friends, but are secretly harboring a dark and dangerous side that comes out in other circumstances and adds a layer or two of complexity to who they really are.
E! is still pushing scripted programming pretty hard. The network is working to determine what scripted projects will go to pilot, and now E! has added yet another project to the pile. Called Shoreline, the network's newest project will follow a resident returning to a seaside town, only to find it overrun with the cast and crew of a popular soap opera called The Shore Line Yacht Club. The appearance of the show and its cast and crew causes clashes between the townies and the visitors, who come from different social stratospheres.
Ratings were all across the board last night, with some of the usual favorites faltering a bit and other shows crushing far more than usual. Sunday night is always a good night for TV, and if you were busy watching sports, following is a list of what everyone else was (or wasn’t) watching.
ABC’s Revenge has added one more to the lineup in Season 2. The soapy ensemble drama often throws new members into the pack, and this time Nip/Tuck’s Dylan Walsh has been added to the cast for a multi-episode arc. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Revenge is filled with attractive cast members, and Walsh fits that description to a tee.
One of the more interesting characters to make his way into Emily Thorne's tangled web is Aiden Mathis. Barry Sloane's character was introduced to Revenge at the start of Season 2, and it looks like we should get used to seeing him around as the actor has been bumped up from recurring to series regular.
ABC’s Revenge is getting into some strategic advertising. The company has partnered with high-end retailer Neiman Marcus and mass retailer Target to bring specific advertising to a special episode of ABC’s soapy drama. On November 11, any advertising that is not local (so we’ll still get some local news anchor men and women and the like) will be devoted to the two retailers and the clothing they sell.
ABC’s Revenge will be introducing Victoria’s mom in an upcoming episode of the soapy drama, and she will be played by none other than veteran actress Adrienne Barbeau. If you have the lifespan to remember all the way back to the seventies, you may remember Barbeau as Carol in the hit comedy Maude. More recently she’s shown up in Dexter, but playing a mother who spent years damaging her daughter sounds a whole lot more fun.
Sunday night is packed again! Last night marked the series and season premieres of a number of shows, including the return of ABC's Revenge, which has officially moved from its previous Wednesday night time slot to Sunday nights following Once Upon a Time. Check out the promo for next week's "Resurrection" ahead...
Michael Trucco won’t have much in the way of down time when he finishes up his current arc on How I Met Your Mother. The Battlestar Galactica alum has signed on for an arc on another series. This time he’ll go from comedy to drama and appear on the upcoming second season of ABC’s soap Revenge .
Emily Thorne will be back in action (mostly quiet, sneaky action) later this month when Revenge returns for its second season. What will Emily get up to in Season 2? We have some photos and an episode description, which give us a few clues as to what's ahead. Check them out ahead and consider yourselves moderately spoiler warned!
ABC is making a bold move that could give a boost to three series getting ready to return for a second season this fall. The complete first seasons of Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Scandal will all be made available on Netflix by the end of the month, giving viewers who didn’t check out the new shows last season a chance to get hooked just as all three start up again for Season 2.
Ensemble dramas are usually difficult to summarize succinctly, but Revenge is fairly simple at its core. Amanda Clarke (Emily VanCamp) is a troubled woman whose father, David (James Tupper), was killed in prison after being falsely accused and convicted for involvement in a terrorist attack. Amanda uses the false name Emily Thorne to blaze her way through the Hamptons, upending the lives of the Grayson family, who are responsible for David’s fate.
Conrad Grayson already has a strong leading lady to face on a fairly regular basis, with frequent confrontations with his wife Victoria. While Madeleine Stowe certainly holds her own, and Emily VanCamp is another female force to be reckoned with, ABC's Revenge could always use one more strong female character. And it appears to be getting one in the latest guest star to be announced for the drama series' second season.
At present, JR Bourne plays the role of Chris Argent, Allison's wolf-hunting father on MTV's drama Teen Wolf. The series just finished airing its second season, and it looks like Bourne has found a way to fill his schedule while the MTV show is on hiatus. He's set to appear in ABC's Revenge, which returns this fall for its sophomore run.
The Client List’s Michael Nardelli is joining the cast of Revenge during its second season. With his preppy hair cut and strong jaw, Nardelli should do pretty well playing a character hailing from the upper class elite; however, his role in the upcoming season is a little less clean cut. As the loner Trey, Nardelli will be busy getting everyone’s favorite little brother, Declan, into a world of trouble.
