'Big Bang Theory': How did Johnny Galecki pull off his Comic-Con surprise? -- VIDEO

The Big Bang Theory panel at Comic-Con started out routine enough. All the writers and producers filed out onstage, and the only star in sight was Melissa Rauch, who plays Bernadette on the show and moderated Friday’s panel.

But when a “fan” approached the mic in Princess Leia’s Return of the Jedi disguise, the mask was removed and BBT leading man Johnny Galecki was revealed. So how did he pull off such a big surprise? And why the Leia costume (“Not the bikini. I wore that underneath,” he quipped)?

EW’s Sandra Gonzalez gets those answers and a tease of what’s coming next in season 7 in the video below:

'Lost' in 'Wonderland'! Naveen Andrews joins 'Once Upon' spinoff in major role -- EXCLUSIVE

Naveen-Andrews.jpg

He’s back: Naveen Andrews is returning to ABC primetime. The actor has booked a major role on upcoming fall series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

Andrews will play Jafar — the main villain in Disney’s 1992 film Aladdin.

The role will mark Andrews’ U.S. TV return since playing Sayid on Lost, which concluded in 2010. He’s appeared in one other project, the UK series Sinbad, which was aired stateside on Syfy, and was cast in an ABC pilot earlier this year. The super-secret casting was just announced during the Wonderland panel, with Andrews surprising fans by taking the stage.

“I’m proud and thrilled to be back with ABC on an exciting and unique new show!” said Andrews in a statement to EW. “This role will be a real departure from any animated versions because of the layered emotions and complexities involved with making him a real three-dimensional character.”

Showrunner Edward Kitsis said on the panel that Jafar will part of the show starting with the season premiere. “We absolutely had this character in mind and we knew we wanted Naveen to play it. We asked him he said yes and we said lets save it for Comic-Con … it’s going to be very frightening.”

Wonderland premieres Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.

'Orphan Black' at Comic-Con: Show returns in April, expect more clones and a possible Beth episode

The project: Orphan Black

The panel: Tatiana Maslany, Dylan Bruce, Jordan Gavaris, and creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson.

The footage screened: Although nothing new was shown — they played an overall sizzle reel from season 1, a scene between Sarah (Maslany) and Paul (Bruce), a separate scene of Allison torturing Donny (Kristian Bruun), a Felix (Gavaris) highlights, and the cringe-worthy diner-jello encounter with Helena — BBC America did share a behind-the-scenes video of how they film Maslany as the different clones together. Watch it here. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con: How 'Orphan Black' pulls off Tatiana Maslany's clone scenes

If you’ve been buzzing about Tatiana Maslany’s breakout role(s) on BBC America’s clone conspiracy drama Orphan Black, then you’ve probably also been wondering exactly how she manages to play multiple characters at the same time. Is it Hollywood witchcraft? Computer trickery? Is she just that good? Maybe a little bit of all three.

Check out this helpful behind-the-scenes video, which was screened this evening during the Orphan Black panel at Comic-Con. In it, the show’s star — and co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett — walk you through the intriguing and somewhat complicated process of making multiple Maslanys.

'Falling Skies' Comic-Con panel: Footage of what's next for Karen and how the cast sees their characters dying

The Project: TNT’s Falling Skies

The Panel: Noah Wyle (Tom), Moon Bloodgood (Anne), Connor Jessup (Ben), “the devastatingly handsome” Drew Roy (Hal) — as moderator and Star Trek: The Next Generation alum Wil Wheaton called the actor — Colin Cunningham (Pope), “the face-meltingly beautiful” Sarah Carter (Maggie) — another Wheaton descriptor — Doug Jones (Cochise), executive producer Remi Aubuchon, and director/executive producer Greg Beeman

Footage screened: The audience was treated to a brief clip from the upcoming July 21 episode. Karen has Tom on a torture table in a creepy, alien place, not unlike the harnessing factory from season 2. The professor-turned-soldier tells Karen, “Go to hell.” She leans in and whispers ominously, “If you haven’t noticed, this is hell.” Once Tom manages to get the upper hand in the situation, he puts a gun to Karen’s forehead. When he’s sure he’s gotten all the information about Anne and Lexi he can from her (which isn’t much), he shoots her point blank! That shocking end to the clip had the audience gasping in a collective “ohhhh!” followed by cheers. Let’s hope Hal’s ex-girlfriend-turned-formidable-alien-ally is really dead — or does Falling Skies have a trick up its sleeve?

At the end of the panel, there was also a screening of a sizzle reel with footage from the remaining episodes of season 3. Moment to most look forward to from that: A high-octane train sequence with Pope leaning off the side of the train, firing off a rifle at what only can be enemy aliens.

EW’s Darren Franich sat down with the cast of Intelligence at Comic-Con to discuss the upcoming series.

'Bones' at Comic-Con: Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz say Booth and Brennan have grown apart

Bones stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel stopped by the EW studio at Comic-Con to discuss what we can expect in the show’s ninth season.

When we last saw the dynamic duo, Booth broke off his engagement to Brennan after Pelant (Andrew Leeds) threatened to kill five innocent people if he didn’t.

“We come back in the season opener and it still hasn’t been resolved. Brennan’s clearly very upset about the situation,” Deschanel explains. “It may take a while for them to be in a good place.”

Boreanaz also tells EW we’ll see new friends of Booth’s who will “change the outlook for where he is presently.” Watch the interview below! READ FULL STORY

Cobie Smulders joins 'SHIELD'! First photo

SHIELD-Cobie-Smulders.jpg

It’s official: Cobie Smulders is reprising her Avengers role in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In fact, the How I Met Your Mother star appears in the very first episode, re-teaming her with Clark Gregg’s resurrected Agent Coulson, in a pilot that’s been kept under wraps by the network.

“I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS SHIELD,” says the pilot’s writer-director Joss Whedon in a statement to EW. “She’s cool and commanding, and has the dry humor that plays so well with Clark’s. Also, if she’s in it I get to hang out with Cobie.”

Smulders played the super-serious and super-capable Agent Maria Hill in the 2012 Avengers blockbuster. She’s expected to occasionally appear in ABC’s TV spinoff — it’s tricky because of her HIMYM commitment on rival network CBS. But with her hit comedy entering its final season … who knows? Perhaps, Smulders will join the S.H.I.E.L.D. team full time if the ABC series returns for a second year.

The heavily buzzed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is making its Comic-Con debut at this very moment — and fans in the room are going to get a big surprise. Stay tuned for our full coverage of what’s about to go down… and in the meantime, here’s 5 other things we know about the pilot. UPDATE: Pilot screens at Comic-Con, here’s what we thought.
