'Agents of SHIELD' recruits Amy Acker for guest stint

Amy-Acker.jpg

Remember that cellist of Coulson’s dreams, first mentioned in The Avengers and then again in a more recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode where we learned that she was upset about his apparent God-induced demise? Well, not only is she getting a name (Audrey!) she’s also getting a face — and that face is none other than the Whedeonverse’s own Amy Acker.

The role reunites the actress with Clark Gregg, her Much Ado About Nothing co-star. Acker, currently a series regular on CBS’ Person of Interest, is scheduled to appear in the April 22 episode. So far, there’s no mention of a recurring role…but we can dream, right? The casting news was originally reported by TV Guide.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. resumes its freshman season on April 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

John Cho cast as lead in ABC comedy pilot 'Selfie'

John Cho (Star Trek Into Darkness, Harold & Kumar franchise) has been cast as the male lead in ABC’s half-hour comedy pilot Selfie.

Cho will play Henry, a self-assured, successful marketing expert who is “a different breed from today’s social media–addicted society.” As a challenge, he decides to “re-market” his coworker Eliza (Karen Gillan), a social media star with a bad reputation.

Selfie is from executive producer/writer Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory). The comedy, inspired by My Fair Lady, is described as “the story of a self-obsessed 20-something woman who is more concerned with ‘likes’ than being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media followers than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.”

The addition of Cho completes series regular casting on this project. He joins previously announced castmembers: Karen Gillan, David Harewood, Allyn Rachel, Tim Peper and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.

Countdown to the 'Bachelor' finale: Juan Pablo can't answer Neil Lane's tough questions -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Today’s the day, rose lovers! By the time we fall asleep tonight, we’ll know the outcome of Juan Pablo’s aventura to find love. Will he choose Clare? Will he choose Nikki? Will he propose? Will he walk away alone? Luckily, we’re only a few hours away from finding out the answers.

To tide you over until the finale, we’ve got one last installment of our countdown to the Bachelor finale. Specifically, it’s an exclusive deleted scene from the season’s last episode, in which Juan Pablo meets with jeweler Neil Lane to look at rings and discuss his final two women. And by discuss, we mean he says, “They smile a lot.” And when Neil Lane asks Juan Pablo who he “shine[s] the most with,” Juan Pablo doesn’t seem to have an answer. All of this leads to one burning question: Will he propose to anyone?

Watch the Bachelor fumble over his words (and look a little panicked) in the clip below:

'Once Upon a Time': Jennifer Morrison talks ditching Neverland for Oz -- and Emma's epic love triangle

[Ahoy, Oncers: We've got some spoilers ahead.]

Flying monkeys! Surprise(ish) pregnancies! Another curse! Clearly, there’s a lot to unpack from Once Upon a Time‘s midseason premiere — but thankfully, EW had the opportunity to chat with OUAT star/savior Jennifer Morrison after we’d seen the episode. She couldn’t answer every burning question… but she could tease some pretty interesting details about the fairy tale series’ journey into Oz.

Read on to learn why the woman who plays Emma Swan might miss Neverland, what makes this half-season’s villain so wicked, what the future holds for a certain presumed-dead fan favorite — and, of course, how Morrison feels about Nealfire (Michael Raymond James) and Hook’s (Colin O’Donoghue) battle for Emma’s heart.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The end of the last episode before the break seemed a bit like it could have marked the end of the show. Did you guys feel like that at all? It was very definitive.
JENNIFER MORRISON: Yeah. I think that Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz, Once's showrunners] did that on purpose. I think they were looking at the cable model, where they do 10 to 12 episodes [per season], and that’s a really definitive length of time to tell a story. Because of the way we were going to air this year, they had an opportunity to do two half-seasons, basically. And so they wanted the end of that half of a season to really feel like a definitive end, and then dangle the carrot for the next arc. And the second half of the season is completely different. We have a totally different villain, we have a whole different world we’re dealing with.

Countdown to the 'Bachelor' finale: Juan Pablo reassures Nikki with a song -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Tomorrow, tomorrow, The Bachelor finale is tomorrow. It’s only a day ah-way! Okay, that’s enough. Perhaps I should let Juan Pablo’s phone do the singing.

In day four of our countdown to the Bachelor finale, we’ve got an exclusive look at a deleted scene involving Juan Pablo and what appears to be his signature move. In this clip, Juan Pablo pulls out his phone and plays Nikki a song, the same way he pulled out a phone and played Clare a song in Saturday’s clip.

But this time, instead of him playing a song his significant other already knows, Juan Pablo picks a song specifically for Nikki. And with lyrics like, “‘Cause you’re the only one for me; your love is like the deep blue sea,” we don’t blame Nikki for feeling reassured. But when he starts to sing along? Yep, he did that with Clare too.

Countdown to the 'Bachelor' finale: Juan Pablo and Clare find their potential wedding song -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s officially time for day three of our countdown to the Bachelor finale! The subject of choice: A deleted scene featuring a tender moment between Juan Pablo and one of his final two women, Clare.

Before all the drama surrounding Juan Pablo and Clare’s dip in the ocean, they were just the happy couple who went on the first one-on-one date of the season. And during that date, they were treated to a private concert from Josh Krajcik. From that point on, they’ve considered Krajcik’s “No Better Lovers” their song. They even danced to it during a one-on-one date later in the season.

And in an exclusive deleted scene, we see Juan Pablo surprise Clare by playing it on his phone, a move that makes her tear up and proclaim, “We should just play it when we get married.”

Katie Holmes cast in ABC pilot from 'Behind the Candelabra' scribe

Katie Holmes is going from Capeside to the East Side.

The Dawson’s Creek actress has been cast in an untitled high society drama pilot for ABC from Behind the Candelabra writer Richard LaGravenese, EW has confirmed.

Holmes will star opposite Rufus Sewell in this drama about opposing couples living in New York City. She will play Ann, a well-bred and educated woman who runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband. After Philip (Sewell) and his wife Margot make a bet to destroy Ann’s seemingly perfect marriage, Ann and Philip engage in a rivalry. The two equally-matched, powerful socialites play out their obsessive attraction and seduction via their manipulation of others.

The role of Margot has yet to be cast. Taylor Hackford (Ray) will direct the pilot.

If the drama were to be picked up to series, it would be Holmes’ first regular TV role since Dawson’s Creek, though she has made appearances in How I Met Your Mother, The Kennedys and Eli Stone.

On the film front, Holmes will play a not-so-dainty schoolteacher in the upcoming film Miss Meadows, premiering at next month’s Tribeca Film Festival
