'Outlander': See latest trailer for Starz series

Because it’s been far too long since we’ve seen a fresh shot of  Sam Heughan as Jamie, Starz just released another trailer for Outlander that’ll bow this summer.

It briefly addresses Claire’s disappearance to the 18th century, and what tartan-covered hunk is there for the taking. READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy': Theo Rossi looks ahead to the final season (and more anxiety)

It’s less than a month until cameras start rolling on the final season of FX’s Sons of Anarchy, and while Theo Rossi (Juice) hasn’t yet read the script for the premiere, fans know from creator Kurt Sutter’s WTF Sutter web series that it’s been turned in to the network with “a few disclaimers in terms of the tone.” 

That’s the kind of tease that makes die-hards both nervous and excited — a state Rossi himself has been in since the identity of Juice’s father became a plot point in season 4. “For anybody who’s had to be near me, live with me, be friends with me, family members, it’s been a nightmare, because it’s been anxiety ever since,” he jokes to EW. “The truth is, what I’ve gotten to do on this show I don’t think I’ll ever match on any job ever, because I’ve literally gotten to play every single emotion an actor can play. I’ve been the funny guy, the loyal guy, the guy fearing for my life, the guy trying to take my own life, the guy taking a lot of other people’s lives as a stone-cold killer, to this guy who’s kinda floating in the abyss now and you don’t know where he’s going – which I think is the most dangerous part about him,” Rossi says. “It’s why you do this, it’s why you get into this racket. Kurt gave me that all in one character. So for this year, I don’t expect that to be any different. If anything, I expect it only to be intensified, really heavily.” READ FULL STORY

'Veep' star Timothy Simons teases Jonah's 'moment in the sun' (and how he keeps a straight face)

It’s already been a season of change for White House liaison-turned-Ryantology founder/reporter Jonah Ryan on HBO’s Veep, but actor Timothy Simons tells EW that Sunday’s episode has yet another: “You might actually see, for the very first time, Jonah have a little bit of success — albeit short-lived,” he says. “Unfortunately the story always ends poorly for Jonah. But he does have a moment in the sun.” Looking further ahead into season 3, Simons says we’ll have more of an understanding of Jonah’s family by the time it’s over. We’ll meet a parent: “I don’t want to spoil any of that,” he says, “other than to say you get a little bit of insight into what might have created him.”

Here are three questions Simons could answer: READ FULL STORY

'Orange Is the New Black': Pablo Schreiber on how Pornstache evolves in season 2 -- if at all

Pornstache and his eponymous facial hair will be back to terrorize the women of Litchfield once again, and Pablo Schreiber honestly sounds somewhat conflicted about returning to Orange Is the New Black.

Laura Prepon on Alex Vause's extended stay on 'Orange Is the New Black'- EXCLUSIVE

Despite rumors to the contrary, Laura Prepon isn’t trying to cut her sentence at Litchfield Penitentiary short. As Piper’s sometimes-enemy and forbidden love interest, Prepon’s character Alex Vause was vital to the first season of Orange Is the New Black. So when reports swirled last year that Prepon would only appear in a single episode of the second season, fans started speculating as to why. One popular theory was that Prepon, as a scientologist, was quitting because the church objected to her playing a lesbian on TV.

“It’s ridiculous because it’s not true. I’m a huge supporter of the LGBT community,” Prepon tells EW. “I try to put a good spin on it, which is, ‘Okay, cool. People are huge fans of the show and my character and they’re trying to come up with excuses about where I’m going.’ It’s ridiculous and I try to laugh at it.”

Internet TV case: Justices skeptical, concerned about Aereo

Grappling with fast-changing technology, Supreme Court justices debated Tuesday whether they can protect the copyrights of TV broadcasters to the shows they send out without strangling innovations in the use of the internet.

The high court heard arguments in a dispute between television broadcasters and Aereo Inc., which takes free television signals from the airwaves and charges subscribers to watch the programs on laptop computers, smartphones and even their large-screen televisions. The case has the potential to bring big changes to the television industry.

There was a good measure of skepticism about Aereo’s approach, sometimes leavened with humor. Chief Justice John Roberts declared at one point: “I’m just saying your technological model is based solely on circumventing legal prohibitions that you don’t want to comply with, which is fine. I mean, you know, lawyers do that.” READ FULL STORY

'Deadliest Catch' preview: Captains tease blood, big storms, and 'the longest continuous bleep in the history of the show'

On April 22, Discovery’s Emmy-winning reality series Deadliest Catch returns for its tenth season (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET). Viewers will have to wait until Opilio season to see the return of the Cornelia Marie, and the arrival of Mandy Hansen, Capt. Sig’s 18-year-old daughter, on the deck of the Northwestern. But there’s plenty of drama during red crab season, beginning in the two-hour premiere: From the government shutdown delaying the fleet’s start, which forces them to take bigger risks to make their delivery dates, to a greenhorn (and a captain!) nearly waving the white flag. EW sat down with captains Keith Colburn (Wizard), “Wild” Bill Wichrowski (Cape Caution), and Johnathan Hillstrand (Time Bandit) to chat about it all — including why you probably won’t be seeing them with a woman on their crews anytime soon.  READ FULL STORY

Carl Reiner looks back on 'Dick Van Dyke Show' finale

Unknown

Long before The Dick Van Dyke Show signed off in 1966, Carl Reiner knew he had a classic on his hands, so crafting the perfect finale was just as important as producing a series that would hold up over time.

Since this is the time of year when series prepare to sign off for good (and since we recently addressed finales in EW‘s April 11 issue titled “The Art of Saying Goodbye”), EW caught up with Reiner who’s currently promoting the DVD release of The Dick Van Dyke Show: Classic Mary Tyler Moore Episodes. Reiner talked about finale dubbed “The Last Chapter,” along with all the ridiculous things he could and couldn’t do in a ’60s sitcom.

Why release the Mary Tyler Moore episodes? Was she an unsung hero?

Well, she wasn’t an unsung hero very long because she — I think on the second or third show — she proved her comic chops. She had never done this kind of comedy before and she was very nervous about it but it didn’t take her long to get the swing. Just standing by and watching Morey [Amsterdam] and Rose [Marie] and Dick do their thing and very soon she was, well, Morey didn’t worry at all that she wasn’t going to be able to pull her weight. You wouldn’t know it if you saw the show because she acquitted herself so well but she was worried—actually he was worried, when we cast her he said, ‘she’s wonderful and beautiful and very talented but she’s so young. She was like 23 years old and Dick at the time was like 35 or 36 or something. But nobody ever ever believed they weren’t a couple.

Was it your idea for Mary to adopt that sing-song Oh Rob she used to do?

That was one of those natural things that happened. She just found a way—when she played the emotion correctly, when she set the line with the emotion of the moment, it worked! It became her signature. READ FULL STORY
