'Big Bang Theory' at Comic-Con: When Leia met Vader, a Wil Wheaton appearance, & more

The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.

Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience with a special rendition of the tune featuring this lyric: “We couldn’t have imagined we’d get to sing this song for The Big Bang Theory fans at Comic-Con.”

Wil Wheaton also joined the panel partway through the event, walking onstage in an ape mask. Shortly after he sat down, he began sputtering, “I have fake orangutan hair in my mouth.”

Here are some highlights from The Big Bang Theory’s panel: READ FULL STORY

At Comic-Con Friday, HBO announced nine new cast members coming to Game of Thrones, including acclaimed veteran actor Jonathan Pryce. Some of the newcomers have been the subjects of online casting rumors for the last several weeks.

The list includes a recasting of young Myrcella Baratheon (Cersei’s daughter, last seen being put in a ship to Dorne for her own protection in season 2) and the addition of Pryce, who will play a powerful religious leader in King’s Landing. Several of the new cast members populate the Kingdom of Dorne, as Thrones shifts part of its focus next year to the home of Prince Oberyn Martell (following his gruesome death at the hands of the The Mountain last season). The Dorne scenes will be largely shot in Spain, which is likewise a fresh location for the multi-country production.

Mary-Louise Parker, Peter Sarsgaard to star in provocative NBC miniseries

NBC has enlisted two acclaimed actors to star in its provocative upcoming miniseries The Slap. Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Sarsgaard will headline the complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. “The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,” according to the show’s official description.

Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds) will play Anouk, a close friend of Hector’s who’s the head writer on a TV show and is now dating the younger leading man. Sarsgaard (The Killing) will play Hector, a husband and father who “loves his wife and family but shows signs of weakness when he finds himself succumbing to the advances of his wife’s teenaged receptionist during his own party.”

NBC has ordered eight episodes of the event series from writer Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers and Sisters) and director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right).

Vera Farmiga doesn't get why that 'Bates Motel' kiss was a big deal

SDCC-VIDEO-BATES-MOTEL.jpg

When the Bates Motel cast stopped by EW‘s Comic-Con hangout, there was one central topic of discussion: that kiss.

Fans know the one. When Norman decided he wanted to kill himself in the season 2 finale, Norma found him out in the woods, gun in hand. There, she finally revealed the fact that he was behind his own father’s murder. But to stop him from pulling the trigger, Norma kissed him like she meant it. It was the moment fans had been waiting for, and it was one that executive producer Kerry Ehrin revealed to us was Freddie Highmore’s idea.

So now that the cast is further removed from the finale, how do they feel about it? Well, Vera Farmiga does not get what all of the fuss is about.

'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty IT girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. Their relationship seemed so impossible that fans started rooting for it.

But as time went on, romance didn’t seem so impossible anymore. To recap: By the penultimate episode of the second season, Oliver and Felicity have exchanged loving glances, had loaded conversations, and even hugged, but it wasn’t until the season-two finale that fans got something bigger. When Slade kidnapps Laurel in the season-two finale, Oliver hides Felicity at the Queen mansion, where he tells her that Slade is after the woman he loves and that Slade had taken the wrong woman when he took Laurel. He then tells the awestruck Felicity that he loves her. READ FULL STORY
