We’re finally going to meet Abby Whelan’s abusive ex-husband. Battlestar Galactica alum Michael Trucco has landed the role on Scandal, EW has learned.
Arrow has just cast a juggernaut of an actor to play DC Comics villain Brick in the show’s third season.
A huge amount of thought went into fall’s most lavishly costumed new show. Below Fox’s Gotham designer, Lisa Padovani, reveals the inspirations behind the clothing for Gotham City’s most notorious villains (and hero):

“I’m ready to get my sexy back,” former Major League player Jose Canseco says in the trailer for season 2 of Botched. And if all goes as planned, his “sexy” should be back in no time.
Botched is an E! reality show that unites two plastic surgeons who specialize in fixing plastic surgeries gone wrong with victims of those plastic surgeries gone wrong. Last season’s patients included a woman whose breast implants were so big they turned into one giant boob, another woman who was on her seventh nose job, and… Janice Dickinson. READ FULL STORY
The Affair has been labeled the Rashomon of marriage dramas, thanks to its he said/she said structure—but it’s also a pretty compelling mystery. The two main characters, Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), are telling the story of their affair to a detective who appears to be investigating a murder. So far, all we know is this: Someone died. And that someone is a man, probably a local, though he was run down on a road that’s primarily used by tourists. And he died the night of a party. And Alison misses him now that he’s gone. A few (very small) clues!
So, who exactly is doomed? Well, listen to “Container,” the beautiful, unsettling theme song that Fiona Apple originally wrote as an unreleased track and revamped specifically for the show, and you’ll notice that Apple might be hinting at someone specific. “I was screaming into the canyon at the moment of my death,” she sings. “The echo I created outlasted my last breath/My voice it made an avalanche and buried a man I never knew/And when he died, his widowed bride met your daddy, and they made you.”
Fox’s Sleepy Hollow is getting another infusion of British talent: EW has learned exclusively that Yorkshire native Max Brown has been cast in a pivotal role.
Brown may be best known for playing medical examiner Evan Marks on The CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Edward Seymour, brother of King Henry VIII’s third wife Jane, on Showtime’s The Tudors. (He was also set to star as a thief named Ambrose in Hieroglyph, Fox’s splashy Ancient Egypt-set series—which was canceled before it even had a chance to premiere.) On Sleepy Hollow, Fox says he’ll portray “a powerful and mysterious new ally known, at first, only as Orion—a charismatic soldier who possesses a game changing weapon.”
Brown’s first episode is slated to air after Sleepy returns from its winter hiatus in January. The drama airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
The past becomes present again, as Bethenny Frankel returns to the franchise that made her popular.
Bravo has announced that Frankel will be returning to The Real Housewives of New York for season seven, along with Carole Radziwill, Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan. Frankel left the show after season three, attributing her departure to drama between cast members on the show, though her numerous spin-off shows with then-fiance Jason Hoppy and subsequent talk show also left little room in her schedule.

All 500+ episodes of The Simpsons in one place—available to watch whenever and wherever you want? That’s unpossible!
At least, it will be… until Tuesday, when Fox launches its much-anticipated Simpsons World app and website. In a release that went wide Monday afternoon, FX revealed that the Simpsons smorgasbord will feature every episode of the sitcom’s first 25 seasons—552 in total—as well as every new episode from the series’ 26th season, available the day after each one first airs on Fox. In addition to on-demand episode viewing, the app—available via FX’s FXNOW app and SimpsonsWorld.com—will boast the following features, according to the release: READ FULL STORY
Tyra Banks’ foray back into daytime television is now permanent, as her show The F.A.B. has been picked up for broadcast in 2015.
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the minds behind American Horror Story, are staying in the scary business: Fox has ordered a new horror-comedy called Scream Queens from the pair and their Glee co-creator Ian Brennan.
Queens is an anthology series much like AHS and the first season, to debut in Fall 2015 with 15 episodes, will be about a college campus rocked by murders; latter seasons will be in different locations and have different plots. READ FULL STORY
You’ve been patiently awaiting footage from the hotly anticipated second season of The Comeback, and now it’s here: HBO has released the first official extended trailer for the cancelled cult favorite’s return engagement.
The second season of The Comeback finds Valerie Cherish (Lisa Kudrow, also a co-creator) cast in an HBO dramedy about, well, Valerie Cherish. Her old nemesis Paulie G. has written a show about his experience working with Valerie on the 2005 sitcom Room & Bored (the show-within-the-show on the original Comeback), and now Valerie finds herself playing herself in the most challenging role she’s ever taken.
