Comic-Con-Charlie-Hunnam-Clip

When Charlie Hunnam couldn’t make it to Sunday’s emotional Sons of Anarchy panel at Comic-Con, the actor knew he had to make it up to the fans. After all, this was the show’s last visit to Hall H.

Now, everyone can see the video Hunnam scripted himself to fill the void his absence left behind. SOA executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the short, told the crowd it was his all-time favorite scene to shoot because the guys—including castmates Tommy Flanagan, Mark Boone Junior, and Kim Coates—had so much fun making it.

Tyler Jacob Moore, John Rhys-Davies join 'OUAT' in 'Frozen' roles

The introduction of Frozen‘s Elsa really was just the beginning: After her blonde braid made its appearance in the Once Upon a Time finale, there have been numerous other chilly additions to the cast, from Anna and Kristoff to, most recently, a troll king and a human prince.

EW has confirmed that actor John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in the Lord of the Rings series, has joined the Once cast as the voice of Pabbie the Troll King, with Shameless‘ Tyler Jacob Moore officially signing on as the morally questionable Prince Hans.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Boyish enthusiasm shines in 'Running Wild with Bear Grylls' premiere

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive in the wild. He’s proven that. But can he teach celebrities how to do the same? That’s the fun of Grylls’ newest series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, in which Grylls takes celebrities into the wild for 48-hour adventures, where they’ll jump out of helicopters, eat worms, and, if they’re Zac Efron, rappel down a waterfall.

In the premiere of Running Wild, Bear picked up Zac Efron for a two-day journey through the Catskills that could not have been more adorable if they had tried. Zac, a lifelong fan of Bear and his shows, brought with him, as Bear put it, a “boyish enthusiasm” that only reminded Bear of why he does what he does. Within minutes of the two talking about camping, nature, and the like, the men had turned into boys, and the rest was downright delightful.

The adventure started with a quick jump out of a helicopter before the men began their 40-mile journey through the mountains, during which Zac admitted that the reason he wanted to do the show—and the reason it was so fun to watch—was really just because he wanted to hang out with Bear. (Don’t we all?)

If only Zac realized that he’d literally be hanging out with bear. After a quick rappel over some slippery rocks, Zac and Bear stopped to eat a few dietary supplements—jerky and nuts—which gave viewers the first real bonding session of the trip. Zac told Bear how he got into show business and what he loves about his work. In return, we learned a fun fact about Bear: He can’t dance.

From there, Bear pushed Zac to his limit when he asked him to retrieve a dead groundhog carcass to see if it was good enough to eat. Spoiler: It was not, and Zac nearly vomited at least five times. But he did it anyway, and Bear loved Zac’s attitude. The two were fast friends, digging their hands in the mud and smelling the insides of dead animals with smiles on their faces. Before we knew it, they were sharing worms (like they were spaghetti and this was Lady and the Tramp), finding camp, eating worm omelets, and talking about Zac’s stint in rehab.

In a refreshing scene, Zac really opened up to Bear about the struggles of Hollywood, and somehow, Bear was not only the great survivalist, but he’d become a great interviewer/psychologist without even trying. Basically, there’s nothing this man can’t do. Also, nature is good for the soul. (Or maybe it was the worms?) By nighttime, the two were joking around about mixing up pee bottles and water bottles, snuggling, and even giving goodnight kisses (on the forehead).

[Insert pitch for a Bear and Zac spinoff.]

Day two consisted of some fern tea, a highly dangerous rope crawl between two cliffs, and a 150-ft. shirtless rappel to the water below. As Zac put it, the greatest trip of his life was like “camping gone crazy,” and for viewers, it was the perfect mix of compelling entertainment, sheer excitement, genuine bonding, Zac’s abs, and Bear’s accent.

If this is what we’re in for with Running Wild, we’ll go crazy camping every week.

Blood, bugs, and more in new trailer for NBC's 'Constantine'

CONSTANTINE-TRAILER.jpg

Fans first got a visually stunning and startling look at NBC’s upcoming thriller Constantine, based on the D.C. Comics character, on Saturday at the Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2014—and now the full trailer is online.

Constantine premieres on Friday, October 24 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Lea Michele to appear on 'Sons of Anarchy' (Updated)

UPDATE: Michele will appear in the coming season of Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth episode, which will air Oct 14.

From the Broadway stage to … a truck stop? That seems to be the way things are headed for Glee star Lea Michele, and she seems excited about it.

Michele recently took to Twitter to announce that she is going to appear on an episode of her favorite show, Sons of Anarchy. Sons is heading into its final season, and based on all of the “Fear the Reaper” promos, there’s no telling why Michele is only sticking around for one episode.

EW has confirmed that Michele will play Gertie, “an empathetic truck-stop waitress and single mother, who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time.”

Watch Rob Lowe's delightfully bonkers Shark Week promo

You thought this guy was the King of Summer? Nope.

Clearly, only one man is truly awesome (and crazy) enough to trek across the ocean atop two great whites, nonchalantly tossing chum in the air as a hot mermaid hitches a ride by his side. That man’s name: Rob Lowe, erstwhile Parks and Rec star, once and future Lifetime luminary, and all-around swell guy. He isn’t appearing in any Discovery specials this year as part of the network’s annual Shark Week—but he is doing some splendidly ridiculous stuff in this exclusive promo.

Carlton Cuse, the man behind Lost and Bates Motel, is teaming up with Hercules‘ Ryan Condal for a new pilot with the working title Colony.

USA just announced that it has officially picked up the pilot of Colony, which is described as a “naturalistic drama about a family torn by opposing forces and making difficult choices as they balance staying together with surviving the struggle of the human race.” The show will be set in Los Angeles in the near future, only this Los Angeles exists in a “state of occupation by a force of outside intruders.”

Colony is a gripping story that brilliantly weaves together an intense family drama in an authentic, yet unknown, world,” USA Network President Chris McCumber said in a press release. “We are pleased to be in business with Ryan Condal and Carlton Cuse, who is clearly one of the best in the industry when it comes to genre fiction.”

The pilot was written and is executive produced by both Cuse and Condal.

'Sleepy Hollow' producer previews new monsters, gives season 2 scoop

War is coming to Sleepy Hollow. And he bought a new outfit for the occasion.

As you’ll see from the following exclusive sketches, Fox’s delightfully insane supernatural drama is planning a second season that’ll be bigger (18 episodes, as opposed to last year’s 13), badder, and most definitely more terrifying. EW chatted with Sleepy executive producer Roberto Orci about some of the beasts who’ll be spooking Ichabod and Abbie this year—including a beefed-up Moloch, a creepy take on the Pied Piper, and a mysterious being known as the Kindred—as well as some burning questions about the season more generally. (And yes, that means Crane and Mills’ romantic status.)

EW: Is it fair to say that season two will be scarier than season one?
ROBERTO ORCI: I think that is fair to say—but without losing its humor. Some of the best humor comes out of being scared.

Season one ended with everyone in peril—Ichabod is buried alive, Abbie is stuck in purgatory, Jenny might be dead. How do you pick up those threads for the premiere?
We pick up two years later… No, I’m kidding. We’re not going to cheat that way. READ FULL STORY
