'Sons of Anarchy' star Theo Rossi says it's 'total chaos and full survival mode' coming up for Juice

Ever since he turned on the club back in season 4, Juice Ortiz has been the Sons of Anarchy character you love to hate. Or is it hate to love? Or is it both? Because while Juice is a man that has made some downright terrible decisions as a member of SAMCRO, he also seems like a good guy deep down. As a result, viewers have been left to alternate between wanting to see Juice pay for his sins (like killing a fellow Son) and hoping he can get a fresh start. Theo Rossi, the man who plays Juice, loves hearing the back and forth fans feels about the character, because at least they are feeling. “I believe any character you play on anything…as long as you feel something,” said Rossi when he called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). As long as you love or you hate.” Rossi also discussed much more and now you can hear the entire chat right here on the InsideTV Podcast. READ FULL STORY

'AHS: Freak Show' star Sarah Paulson: Are two heads better than one?

Sarah Paulson will be pulling double duty on American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The upcoming season takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, where the arrival of a troupe of circus performers coincides with the emergence of a dark entity that threatens the lives of freaks and normal residents alike. Paulson will play Bette and Dot, Siamese twins who are likely among the show’s big attractions.

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, without a doubt, both physically and emotionally, because the way we’re doing it, I go back and forth between both girls without any break,” Paulson tells EW. “I’m not able to just play one thing out. I have to switch constantly. It makes me feel like patting your head and rubbing your stomach and you’re not sure what you’re doing anymore.” READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story: Freak Show': New teaser slips fans the tongue

As you go into your weekend, here’s another super-brief teaser for FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show. The video is pretty self-explanatory and follows up on FX announcing that Oct. 8 is the premiere date for the fourth installment of the popular horror anthology series, along with the release of another teaser video earlier this week.

So… these teasers are just going to get increasingly gross, aren’t they? READ FULL STORY

Retro bleak: Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are 'Partners' in groaners

In 2012, CBS premiered a new show about two odd-couple male pals. It was called Partners, and on the surface, it seemed to have everything going for it—a prime slot following How I Met Your Mother, a great pedigree courtesy of two ’90s sitcom wizards (it was created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan of Will & Grace fame), two charismatic stars (Michael Urie and David Krumholtz). Even so, Partners failed to gain traction. Critics griped that its old-fashioned jokes were tired rather than appealingly retro; just a few weeks into the 2012-2013 TV season, it became one of the first shows to get the ax.

Clearly, those who don’t pay attention to TV history are doomed to repeat it.

FX’s newest offering, like the CBS series, is a lowest-common-denominator comedy with a laugh track. It was also created by two men whose careers peaked in the ’90s—Robert Horn produced Living Single and the short-lived CBS sitcom High Society; Robert L. Boyett’s last name will be familiar to anyone who grew up watching Miller/Boyett family comedies like Full House, Family Matters, and Step by Step. It, too, stars two veteran actors, albeit ones significantly more seasoned than Urie and Krumholtz: five-time Emmy Award winner Kelsey Grammer and ex-Martin star (and onetime Big Momma) Martin Lawrence. Like that other show, Partners is also called, uh, Partners.

Most importantly: Both are stereotype-laden throwbacks to a simpler time when multi-cam sitcoms ruled and no joke was too broad. And both are, well, not that good. READ FULL STORY

'You're the Worst' gives the rom-com formula a mild case of crabs

Suggested alternate title: Love in the Time of Cynicism.

From the moment you see Jimmy Shive-Overly (Chris Geere) taking pictures of his junk during a wedding toast, it’s pretty clear You’re the Worst doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. To wit, Jimmy is mid-waltz with the bride—his ex—when he informs her he’s only come to her wedding to gawk at the imminent “disaster” of love and marriage.

The surly new half-hour rom-com from Stephen Falk (Orange Is the New Black) presents a challenge for itself by offering up a character like Jimmy as its entrée into the series. Despite audiences’ seemingly insatiable appetite for antiheroes in basic-cable dramas, it’s fairly rare to lead a comedy with someone kind of awful (Worst‘s FX sibling Louie has been blazing that trail to much acclaim). How are viewers meant to fall in love with Jimmy, who’s as reactive as he is bitter? And, more importantly, how are they to believe a woman would fall in love with him? READ FULL STORY

Wes Bentley joins 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'

Wes Bentley has gone from an American Beauty to an American Horror Story.

The Hunger Games actor will once again show off his dark side in the two-part Halloween episode of the upcoming season of FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show. EW has confirmed that Bentley will play Eddie, a shady figure from Kathy Bates’ character’s past seeking revenge. The project reunites Bentley with show cocreator Ryan Murphy after working together on the HBO pilot Open.

The FX anthology hit’s fourth season will center around on the last American freak show in 1950s Florida with returning stars to the series Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy and Bates as well as newcomer to the group, Michael Chiklis.

'Fargo' creator Noah Hawley answers our season finale burning questions

Fargo creator Noah Hawley promised a bloody season finale for his TV adaptation of the Coen brothers movie, and he wasn’t lying. But whose blood was spilled? [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched last night’s season finale of Fargo.] The final showdown between Lorne Malvo and Lester Nygaard ended up a bit of a draw: Nygaard bloodied Malvo’s leg with a bear trap while Malvo bloodied Nygaard’s nose by hurling an object at his face. In the end, they both died by other hands. No longer the Cowardly Lion, Gus Grimly found his courage and pumped Malvo full of lead while Nygaard later fell through the ice while running from authorities ready to arrest him after hearing the incriminating audio evidence on Malvo’s cassette. We spoke to Hawley to get his take on the finale, whether Lester is really dead, what happened to Oliver Platt’s Stavros, and what we might see if the show returns for season 2. READ FULL STORY
