InsideTV Podcast: Terry O'Quinn reflects on Locke, 'Lost', and THAT ending

He played one of the most charismatic characters in TV history, so when Terry O’Quinn popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new Fox drama Gang Related (which debuts May 22), we knew we also had to chat with him about his Emmy winning turn as John Locke on Lost. Apparently, we are not alone, as O’Quinn told us that people still stop him on the street hoping to crack the code on that character and the show in general. “That’s what people generally stop me for and talk to me about now is Lost,” says O’Quinn. “And sometimes they call me John and that’s fine. And I don’t mind it. I understand what Lost was and I count my blessings. I’m usually happy to talk to people. I don’t think I’ve ever had anybody say anything negative to me about it except ‘I didn’t get the ending. What the hell was that all about?’ And I’m like talk to Damon Lindelof!” READ FULL STORY

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' finale: Just call it 'The Dancing Detectives' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Are Peralta and Santiago going to get Silver Linings Playbook-ed?

The shippable detectives (played by Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) — along with Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) — are hitting the ballroom floor for an undercover assignment in the season finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. To absolutely no one’s surprise, Holt is unflappable on the formica. More unexpectedly, the Tracy Flick-ish Santiago may have found the only thing in the world at which she doesn’t excel.

Below, watch an exclusive featurette about the episode, “Charges and Specs,” where you’ll be dazzled by scads of sequins, moose-knuckle quips aplenty, and insights from the stars about how their characters’ dance experience stacks up to their own.


'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Holt puts Rosa through apology boot camp -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

We learned this weekend that Fox’s Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed for a second season, but that doesn’t mean surly Detective Rosa Diaz is any more chipper than usual.

In an exclusive clip from Tuesday’s episode, Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) has to make amends after publicly shaming a colleague. When her mea culpa is predictably prickly, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) takes her aside to coach her on the proper apologizing technique.

Watch the consequent, ridiculously monotone “I’m sorry”-off below. READ FULL STORY

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': See the football game in the post-Super Bowl episode -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Are you ready for some football(-related laughs)??? Surprise Golden Globe champion Brooklyn Nine-Nine will get a chance to score points with a large chunk of Americans when Fox airs the police comedy on Sunday night after Super Bowl XLVIII. In the episode, “Operation: Broken Feather” — which is expected to begin around 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT, following a Prince-ly New Girl — Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) team up to investigate a series of hotel robberies, but Jake feels betrayed by his partner when he learns that she may defect to the Major Crimes Units to work with The Vulture (returning guest star Dean Winters). Winters is not the only returning guest star, though: Fred Armisen reprises his role as the highly odd and enigmatic Melipnos. Fred Armisen is not the only other returning guest star, though: Patton Oswalt resurfaces as Jake’s nemesis Fire Marshall Boone. The pair are pitted against each other in a game of padless tackle football in the park. Who will be the MVP of this NYPD-FDNY match-up? Check out the following clip to see, but let’s just say that you don’t want to bet against Sergeant Jeffords (Terry Crews, you know, former NFL defensive end/linebacker).


'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' stars tease upcoming episodes (...while taking EW's Ultimate Balloon Challenge)

Any celebrity worth their salt can look into a camera and tease what’s coming up on their show.

But proving that Golden Globe was no fluke, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews showed extraordinary skill when EW put before him our Ultimate Balloon Challenge, which required him to give us juicy teases…while keeping a balloon in the air. (Hey, the Television Critics Association press tour was in full swing, and we had to break the monotony somehow!)

See how Crews did in the video below and get some juicy teases on the upcoming introduction of Capt. Holt’s husband. (Andre Braugher got away without having to do the challenge because our balloons were late. Lucky!)   READ FULL STORY

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' wins Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes

And the surprises just keep coming: Freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine just snagged the Golden Globe Award for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy. This is the second year in a row that the Hollywood Foreign Press has celebrated a new program in this category; last year, HBO’s Girls took home the prize.

Executive producer Daniel J. Goor accepted the award on his show’s behalf, making sure to thank his writers — “who never get to see their families” — series lead and newly-anointed Golden Globe winner Andy Samberg, co-EP and co-creator Michael Schur, and finally, his family, including his two-and-a-half-year-old, “who’s a nightmare.” Goor closed out his speech by noting that he decided to go into comedy instead of medicine, and that, in the end, he’s positive that he made the right decision: “This is way better than saving a human life.”

Andy Samberg wins Best Actor in a TV Comedy at Golden Globes

After returning from his honeymoon, Andy Samberg has something else to celebrate: The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star won his first Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Comedy. The win was unexpected, even to him. He had no speech prepared, so he did the usual “thank you”s in his own way. The best moment: When he used air quotes to thank “my team.” He quickly added, “I really do love and respect them.”

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Craig Robinson and Andy Samberg reenact 'Fievel Goes West' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Here’s an example of why Brooklyn Nine-Nine earned that Golden Globe nomination: The Fox comedy is back Tuesday with The Office‘s Craig Robinson guest starring as Doug Judy, one of Rosa’s perps who has information about the “Pontiac Bandit,” a car thief that Jake (Andy Samberg) has been tracking for years. Doug also has a laserdisc collection that leads to an excellent moment for fans of An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. Watch an exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY

First Look: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' celebrates Thanksgiving -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s Thanksgiving time for the dysfunctional good guys at Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and EW has an exclusive clip from Tuesday night’s Turkey Day episode.

In the clip, Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) leaves the refrigerator open, causing all of Terry’s (Terry Crews) lunch that his wife made him to go bad. With a lot of muscle mass to fill, Terry searches for some alternative methods to finding food as Amy’s (Melissa Fumero) plan for a perfect Thanksgiving meal at the precinct doesn’t go quite as planned.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' outtake: Watch Holt torment a hungover Jake -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Tonight on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) will commit a crime: He’ll show up to work with a spectacular hangover. Not surprisingly, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) is not amused. In the episode, which airs at 8:30 p.m. on Fox, Holt torments Jake with a nasty hangover cure after his long night of drinking with his idol, crime reporter Jimmy Brogan (played by guest star Stacy Keach). But what you won’t see is another version of the scene that was shot, in which Holt finds a few different ways to torture the normally playful but currently miserable detective.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Craig Robinson to guest -- EXCLUSIVE

Craig Robinson is Brooklyn-bound.

The actor-comedian who starred on The Office and in This Is the End will guest in an upcoming episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, EW has learned. He will play Doug Judy, a small-time criminal who may be integral to a case that Jake (Andy Samberg) has been investigating for many years.

Other famous folks appearing on the Fox police comedy this season include Fred Armisen, Andy Richter, Kid Cudi, Dean Winters, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Patton Oswalt.

Robinson, who was fined $1,000 two weeks ago for possession of marijuana in the Bahamas, will shoot his episode next week. He also will star again on the big screen in Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Last week, Brooklyn Nine-Nine received a full-season pick-up and a choice slot after the Super Bowl.

A Salt & Bat-ery: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' and 'New Girl' do Halloween -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Fox is serving up ghoulish giggles Tuesday night with an hour of Halloween-themed episodes. Starting at 8:30 p.m. ET, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is first up to bat — just not in the same way as New Girl‘s Jess (Zooey Deschanel, as seen above right) — following Brooklyn‘s police patrolmen and -women as they risk life, limb, and every shred of dignity in donning costumes for an undercover assignment.

After that, New Girl‘s loftmates try to cheer up Schmidt (Max Greenfield), who’s still contending with the guilt and consequences of his cheating streak from earlier this season, while Jess throws a party to reconnect with BFF/spurned Schmidt ex Cece (Hannah Simone). Given Schmidt’s dogged attempts to break up Jess and Nick (Jake Johnson) two weeks ago, you’d think a snake would be a fitting costume… but it seems the (sometimes) loveable douchebag has opted for a different kind of reptile. Also: Who is surprised that slacker soul mates Nick and Brooklyn‘s Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) have opted for similar-looking costumes? Answer: No one.
