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

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.
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
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.”
Check out the full list of winners here.
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.”
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
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.

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.
