'Comic-Con': Joss Whedon favorite Amy Acker upped to series regular on 'Person of Interest'

It looks like the Whedonverse truly is the center of Comic-Con 2013: At the panel for CBS’ Person of Interest, it was revealed that Joss regular Amy Acker has been promoted to series regular for season 3.

Acker most recently starred in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing and first teamed with the director in Angel. Now she can get a little more comfortable as cyber-hacker Root on Person of Interest when the show returns September 24 at its new day and time: Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

'Person of Interest': See the show's Easter egg-filled Comic-Con poster -- EXCLUSIVE

person-of-interest-poster.jpg

There’s so much for Person of Interest fans to analyze in this EW exclusive poster that we don’t even know where to begin ourselves. But executive producer Jonathan Nolan sums up the theme nicely, saying: “In light of the news about PRISM, we felt this poster celebrated both our panic at America’s descent into an Orwellian nightmare and our excitement over all the free marketing we’re getting out of it.”

The poster will be available to fans at Comic-Con this weekend, and fans on-site also have a chance to see the cast and producers live, when they participate in a panel Saturday at 4 p.m. in room 6BCD. Nolan, fellow EP Greg Plageman, and stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi are set to appear. Recurring guest star Amy Acker will also be on hand.

'The Good Wife': Carrie Preston talks quirky lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni

Is it too early to start an Emmy campaign? Carrie Preston reprised her role as the brilliant and funny Elsbeth Tascioni on last night’s The Good Wife. But Preston’s stint on the show doesn’t end there: Elsbeth returns in the March 3 episode where she continues to represent Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) in his case against the Department of Justice. Preston called up EW to chat about her role on the series and settle once and for all: Is Elsbeth a secret genius?  READ FULL STORY

Sarah Shahi to recur on 'Person of Interest'

Sarah Shahi is going after Finch and Reese!

The former Fairly Legal star has scored a recurring guest star role on CBS’s Person of Interest, EW has learned.

She will play Shaw, a “fearless, sexy operative in a secret paramilitary organization that tracks and eliminates terrorists before they can act,” according to creator/executive producer Jonathan Nolan. “She brings to her work a yen for mayhem and a sharp, dark wit — in whatever language the locals are speaking,” he says of the character. “If James Bond and Sarah Connor had a kid, Shaw would kick its ass.”

Her multi-episode arc begins in the Feb. 21 episode, titled “Relevance,” which will be directed by Nolan.

Shahi currently recurs on Chicago Fire.

'Person of Interest' gets flashy new opening credits

CBS is revamping the opening credits of Person of Interest. The high-tech hit crime drama will unveil a new slicker opening on tonight’s episode. The sequence still explains, ’80s style, the show’s setup, but the graphics are definitely punchier and the intro is slightly shorter.

Below are the new credits, exclusively on EW.com: READ FULL STORY

‘ARROW’ DISH!
The Arrow cast was out in full force during New York Comic-Con this weekend. (Also, this sizzle reel? AWESOME!) And I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes backstage with Stephen Amell and Katie Cassidy so they could answer a few questions for fans who made the premiere a record-breaker.

Will we see some Laurel/Oliver flashbacks any time soon? — Joy
“You’ll definitely get to see more of the history between Laurel and Oliver, and where they come from,” assures Cassidy, who adds that she loves playing a character with “a huge heart.” Which is also something that likely endears her to Oliver. “Laurel lost her sister because her boyfriend had an affair and invited her [on the boat]. It’s basically his fault. And I think if any man did this to me and my sisters, I would never forgive that person,” she says. “I feel like she has a lot of soul, and she’s clearly very strong because she tries to see the best in everyone. I think that says a lot about her.”

Sandra, can we please get Revenge/Arrow crossover? I think Emily and Oliver would make amazing partners! — Leslie
…And have amazingly beautiful justice-seeking babies! Ehem. No spoiler here because this is a crazy bananas idea. But, for the record, Amell is on board: “Let’s cross pollinate. Let’s do it. I don’t understand why we wouldn’t. Maybe ABC and CW would have issues, but that’s not for me to discuss. But in a perfect world, we would just do it.”

Sandra, please tell me we’re going to see that ladder thing on Arrow again. Please. Please. – Kristine
As I reported in this post-premiere scoop, no salmon ladder again any time soon. (Sniff.) But if it’s action you like, I hear there’s some very impressive machete stunts in this week’s episode (not to mention, a Kardashian joke). And in the seventh episode, there’s a fight scene that Amell is “very proud of” against a character that “D.C. comics fans will recognize.” “It’s another fight in my plain clothes and when I’m in my plain clothes, it has to be only me because I don’t have a hood on; you can’t hide my face,” he said. “It got a really nice reception from the crew after we shot it.”

'Grimm,' 'White Collar,' 'Person of Interest,' 'Supernatural,' 'Grey's Anatomy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

True story: I’m so excited for fall TV that I’ve been having dreams about watching season premieres. Seriously. My entire dream is me sitting on the couch, watching TV. Part of me thinks that maybe I’m clairvoyant and all the secrets of the fall season are playing out on Dream Sandra’s TV. The more likely possibility is that I need a real life. (My birthday was last week, and I’m now starting to think I wasted that wish. Damn.)

Regardless, as TV continues to invade my dreams, I encourage you to engage with it in reality by sending me your questions! Email spoilerroom@ew.com or ask via Twitter @EWSandraG. Belated birthday wishes also accepted. (Just don’t ask for age specifics. I’ll never tell.)

'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Scandal' ratings rise for finales

scandal

Three Thursday night dramas were greeted with larger audiences for their final episodes of the season, but one NBC comedy tied its all-time low.

ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy delivered 11.1 million viewers and a 3.9 rating, up 11 percent from last week and marking its best rating in three months. Check out EW.com’s interview with Grey’s showrunner Shonda Rhimes about last night’s two shocking exits here.

Bigger news: Rhimes’ Scandal (7.5 million, 2.4) was up too, and not just a little. The political soap was up 26 percent, which is expected to mark a series high for the show (even after its rating is adjusted later today to account for some Grey’s overrun). Scandal started its brief midseason run modestly but, as we’ve noted before, seemed like it had the potential to grow.   READ FULL STORY
