We know from the promo for Thursday’s episode of Beauty and the Beast, “Playing With Fire,” that Sendhil Ramamurthy, who’s recurring as A.D.A. Gabe Lowan, does some intense, shirtless acting. But as our exclusive clip below sets up, it’s a revealing hour for Gabe in other ways. We, along with Cat (Kristin Kreuk), will learn his real connection to Muirfield. (We’ll also see his involvement in flashbacks.). READ FULL STORY »

The CW has cast an actor from the Twilight Saga in a new recurring role.
Edi Gathegi (Twilight; X-Men: First Class) is joining the romantic crime procedural in recurring role of Kyle, a “composed agent for a top-secret organization with killer looks and instincts to match. He doesn’t like his time to be wasted, and can easily assess anyone’s weaknesses and happily exploit them.”
The casting comes on the heels of The CW’s entertainment president Mark Pedowitz sounding very bullish on Beauty‘s renewal odds, telling reporters, “we’re very pleased in terms of where it’s going creatively … We believe the show has a very long run in front of it. We’ve made no announcements about a second season. But based on the passion of the fans both on the E! Online and the People’s Choice Awards, we think we have something in this epic love story between Cat and Vincent.”
While star Kristen Kreuk was recently quoted as saying the show is very much about love: “A love you build with somebody over time despite difficulties. It’s about looking past a person’s looks and chequered past to see their inner beauty, ” she said. “Catherine sees a man [in Vincent] who has gone through so much and even though she knows he’s not right for her, deep down she knows she can’t walk away from him.” Aww…
Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beastwill roar into 2013.
The new supernatural crime drama starring Kristin Kreuk just received an additional nine episodes from The CW.
This marks the second freshman drama to get a full ride from the network this fall (the first, of course, is Arrow). So far, the show is averaging 2.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-34, the network’s target demographic.
What about Emily Owens M.D.? No decision yet on Tuesday’s quirky doctor dramedy. We bet that Beauty would get a full season and not Emily Owens in the most recent edition of Death Watch. Going into CW’s fall, it felt like musical chairs with three shows (Emily, Arrow and Beauty) and two chairs since a shortened Gossip Girl was only airing until the end of the year and the network has Cult and Carrie Diaries waiting in the wings. But sources say that’s far from certain, since The CW’s seasons are pretty short and Cult could launch in late spring.
'Beauty and the Beast' Comic-Con panel: Kristin Kreuk transitions from Lana Lang to a hard-boiled homicide detective
You know you want more Comic-Con coverage! During a panel this afternoon moderated with ninja-like precision by EW’s Dalton Ross, the CW screened the entire pilot episode of upcoming drama Beauty and the Beast (premieres Oct. 11). In the modern retelling of the classic fairytale, Smallville‘s Kristin Kreuk plays Catherine Chandler, an NYPD homicide detective who witnessed the murder of her mother years ago. She also remembers “a beast” attacking her mother’s killer and then saving Catherine’s life.
In the pilot, Catherine discovers the identity of the beast — it’s Vincent Keller (played by Ryan), a survivor of a military experiment gone very, very wrong. Catherine’s re-introduction to Vincent occurs as she investigates a murder, and it seems the show will be set up to cover a “case of the week.” We saw two attack scenes from the beast — but as they were from Catherine’s perspective, the action was a bit blurry and we don’t yet know many physical characteristics of the beast, his capabilities, the true extent of his “rage,” etc. READ FULL STORY »
Below, Kristin Kreuk’s NYC homicide detective Catherine Chandler has a subway throwdown with two attackers — and has an encounter with a lethal and mysterious new protector.
If you’re at Comic-Con and want to see the show’s entire pilot, head over to Ballroom 20 at 3:30 p.m. There Kreuk and costar Jay Ryan, as well as executive producers Jennifer Levin, Sherri Cooper, Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders, will screen the first episode and take your questions. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until Oct. 11 when Beauty and the Beast debuts on The CW. Here’s your three-minute clip: READ FULL STORY »

ABC’s pilot for Beauty and the Beast, a reboot of the classic fairy tale, has cast its beast — Scottish singer and actor Darius Campbell. EW can confirm a Deadline report that Campbell will play a mysterious beastly bodyguard named Shiro who joins forces with an as-yet-uncast princess named Grace in this re-imagining of the classic story — not to be confused with the other CW Beauty and the Beast pilot. Grace’s fiancé, Gorrick, will be played by Chris Egan (Letters to Juliet).
Campbell is well known in the U.K., first coming to attention when he appeared in the TV singing competition, Popstars, and later as a finalist on Pop Idol. Since then he’s been a platinum-selling recording artist and actor, appearing in a variety of West End musicals, including Chicago and Guys and Dolls.
