When it comes to the wholesome gee-golly-ness of the good old days, few fictional characters are more representative than Archie Andrews, the redheaded womanizer first introduced to comic book readers in the 1940s. That might all be about to change with this subversive new project.
Adapting all-age superhero comic books for television is one thing, but adapting a distinctly adult comic for mass audiences is something else entirely. NBC’s Constantine is one such challenge, and the character’s fans have been anxious to know just how close Matt Ryan’s TV persona will get to the source material.
Love has stayed outside the acting spotlight for the past decade or so, dealing more with behind the scenes drama. She reemerged on FX’s Sons of Anarchy this season, and now she's got this new gig. Will Love find her third calling as a TV star now?
Brad Pitt has been making the rounds to hype up his new film Fury, popping up on Jimmy Fallon and more. More recently he appeared on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis to share stories from the set. Galifianakis goes for the comedic jugular in the sketch, but it’s the sort of thing you should experience for yourself.
We’re only a few weeks into the fall TV season. No shows have even been canceled yet, but pilots for next year are already moving forward. Fox, in fact, has just signed on for a remake of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The network agreed to a put-pilot commitment for Frankenstein, which will come from a couple of prolific names.
By now, you’ve probably heard that Honey Boo Boo’s mother Mama June and her father Sugar Bear have separated. It’s a pretty sad development for those who watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and obviously for those actually close to the family, but sadly, it’s apparently not the saddest recent development.
It was nice to see Arrow rebound after last week's less than stellar episode. "Sara" contained some of the worst action sequences of the series so far, not to mention its fair share of stilted-sentimentality. The CW superhero show has never really nailed the emotional moments but stunning action set-pieces almost always outweigh the heavy-handed drama. Case in point, “Corto Maltese.”
If you’ve been wondering what to call what DC Comics is doing with its slew of TV and movie characters, we have an answer for you. DC President Geoff Johns spoke out on Thursday to explain how The Flash and Arrow can exist on the small screen and still exist in a totally separate world on the big screen.
The annual Halloween two-parter for American Horror Story usually contains some of the weirdest ideas Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk have up their dungeon master sleeves, though I feel tonight was more of a build-up to whatever mania will be upon us next week. As a standalone episode, “Edward Mordrake (Part 1)” was really just…part one-ish.
With all the villains that plague Gotham, protagonists like Jim Gordon are at a severe disadvantage. Fortunately, another good guy has joined the ranks. Firefly actress Morena Baccarin will recur as this pivotal character from the Batman mythos.
Did you happen to watch the absolutely magnificent first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, which leaked online earlier tonight? (Check it out, seriously.) I’m betting ABC is hoping that you didn’t, though.
Lifetime is taking another stab at Lizzie Borden. This week, the cable network announced that it will produce a 6-episode limited series based on the life of the woman acquitted for killing her mom and dad. The new series is rolling with the title Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles.
Following the raunchy success of Bojack Horseman, Netflix will once again head to the 2D world of animation by teaming up with Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television for F is for Family, which already boasts a stellar cast.
When it comes to actors who can display equal amounts of warmth, dramatic emotion and comedic pathos, Philip Seymour Hoffman was at the top of the game. Thankfully, he has a properly suitable replacement for the upcoming dramedy Happyish in Steve Coogan.
Typically by this point in October, we’ve seen the networks go ahead and cancel a show or four. Yet, today is October 22 and not only have no shows been canceled, one network has even gone against prediction, twice, to keep poorly performing shows on air.
