Tricia Helfer is returning to Syfy to star in the network’s upcoming six-hour event series Ascension.
Helfer played the seductive cylon Six in Syfy’s acclaimed Battlestar Galactica reboot. Here she’ll play a beautiful, manipulative and dangerous character named “Viondra Denniger,” who regards herself as a not-so-secret power broker aboard a starship with a mysterious mission.
The premise of Ascension: “In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.” READ FULL STORY
When Aaron Sorkin began writing The West Wing, the president was supposed to be a background character, a palpable presence that hovered over the plot but rarely made an actual appearance. Then, in the series’ opening episodes, Martin Sheen ambled on screen, charmed the audience with his intellectual idealism and leading-man aura, and everything changed.
It will be interesting to see if something similar occurs when George Washington makes his first appearance on Turn, AMC’s new Revolutionary War drama. Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island farmer who risks his life and family to gather intelligence on the British in his hometown and nearby New York City. Thus far, Washington has been mentioned only in passing, mostly in derogatory fashion after his troops were swept out of New York in 1776 and the Continental Congress contemplated relieving him of command. But last Sunday, Abe’s tips about Hessian troops in Trenton were smuggled into an intelligence packet that found its way to Washington’s office, a bustling nerve center of activity.
On Sunday, May 4, General Washington makes his Turn debut. New York-bred actor Ian Kahn, who’s recently guested on shows like Shameless, Bones, and Parenthood, gets the honor — and burden — of portraying the Founding Father. The 42-year-old spoke to EW about his humbling experience. READ FULL STORY

'Agents of SHIELD': Newest art teases Deathlok return as Skye and Ward take center stage -- EXCLUSIVE
To say that this week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. left our team in disarray would be an understatement. May has abandoned ship, literally, apparently on a mission to seek out Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill (with a little help from her mom). Coulson, Trip, Fitz and Simmons have returned from a mission to find their plane gone. And Skye and Ward are currently on a mission of their own, one that involves Ward’s determination to crack that hard drive once and for all.
As we speed towards the last hours of the season, it’s no secret that things are going to get even more intense. The April 29 episode “Nothing Personal” includes not only Hill’s return, but also the return of Mike Peterson’s Deathlok (J. August Richards). Aside from being significant in Skye and Ward’s journey, the Marvel villain will play a major role throughout the end of the season.
Even after the Arrow writers made the tough choice to [Spoiler Alert times a billion] kill off Queen family matriarch Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) in the episode that aired Wednesday night, there was still one more detail to hash out: How would Slade Wilson end Mama Queen’s life?
They knew the scenario — Slade (Manu Bennett) was going to eerily re-stage the tragic death of his beloved Shadow and, in a full circle moment, force Oliver (Stephen Amell) to pick his mother or his sister. (Ultimately, Moira would take that decision out of her son’s hands.) But the actual act of killing came down to one question: sword or a gun? And that decision came with more discussion than you might imagine. READ FULL STORY
Despite rumors to the contrary, Laura Prepon isn’t trying to cut her sentence at Litchfield Penitentiary short. As Piper’s sometimes-enemy and forbidden love interest, Prepon’s character Alex Vause was vital to the first season of Orange Is the New Black. So when reports swirled last year that Prepon would only appear in a single episode of the second season, fans started speculating as to why. One popular theory was that Prepon, as a scientologist, was quitting because the church objected to her playing a lesbian on TV.
“It’s ridiculous because it’s not true. I’m a huge supporter of the LGBT community,” Prepon tells EW. “I try to put a good spin on it, which is, ‘Okay, cool. People are huge fans of the show and my character and they’re trying to come up with excuses about where I’m going.’ It’s ridiculous and I try to laugh at it.”
