'Revenge' actor to go wild on 'Grimm' -- EXCLUSIVE

Seems like the only place Roger Bart can escape Victoria Grayson is in the wild!

EW has learned exclusively that Bart (The Event, Desperate Housewives), who portrays slimy author Mason Treadwell on Revenge, is heading to NBC’s Grimm in May. The actor will play a Wildermann, a bearded, “Grizzly Adams-type” character, and he will appear in an episode that tackles the legend of Big Foot, according to casting intel. It was announced yesterday that Kenneth Mitchell (Jericho) is set to play the creature.

Grimm, which was recently renewed for a second season, returns this Friday with new episodes and will air uninterrupted until its May finale.

Stars from 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Castle,' and 'Revenge' talk what's next in Spoiler Room: Video Edition


While on the set of The Vampire Diaries about six weeks ago, I took note of a familiar face walking around set: Robert Ri’chard, who plays Jaime.

Now, at the time, we’d only recently been introduced to the boy, who is the adoptive son of Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mom, Abby (Persia White). But seeing him lurk around set was a pretty good indication he’d be back. And he is!

This Thursday, in fact, and from what Kat Graham indicates, it’s to connect on a new, romantic level. (They’re not blood, so we’re OK with that, right?) But that’s just one of the things in store for the Bennett family. Candice Accola was also nice enough to share some details on that in the latest Spoiler Room: Video Edition, which you can check out below.

Also in store? Some scoop from Tamala Jones on the upcoming Castle episode, “The Limey.” (Hint: Lainey’s as ready as we are for some Caskett!) and Gabriel Mann teases a big twist with Nolan on Revenge that we won’t see coming. (Could it be revealed in the much-hyped flashback episode? Could be, could be.)

Anyway, enjoy, folks. See you back here on Friday for your regular column. In the meantime, send me an e-mail if you have a scoop request — or if you want to play Draw Something with me! (I wish I was kidding… but, tragically, I’m just that sad.) READ FULL STORY

'Revenge': Scoop on Daniel's prison rough-up, a big flashback episode, and season 2!

The moment Daniel Grayson was denied bail, we knew his days in prison would be anything but easy. And in the next new episode of Revenge, airing April 11, the dangers associated with incarceration come fist-to-face with the eldest Grayson child — with a twist, of course.

The scene, which leaves poor Daniel (Josh Bowman) bloodied and beaten, is just one of many juicy tidbits the crowd at PaleyFest was made privy to after checking out the first 30 minutes of the next new episode, and one of many future nail-bitters in store for the rest of the season.

'Revenge' scoop: 'Breaking Bad' actress cast in mysterious guest spot

Another mysterious character is making her way to Southampton: EW has confirmed that Tess Harper — known best for playing the mother to actor Aaron Paul’s Jesse on AMC’s Breaking Bad — has just been cast on ABC’s primetime soap Revenge. originally reported the casting.

The 61-year-old Harper will appear as Carol Miller, who’s described as a former corporate secretary — at Grayson Global, maybe? — who retired to the quiet life on a farm outside Madison, Wisc., 15 years ago. As you might imagine when it comes to Revenge, though, Miller’s appearance is probably not as simple as that sounds, as her complicated past will be uncovered swiftly when she appears in the series’ episode 19.

Besides Breaking Bad, Harper was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in 1986′s Crimes of the Heart and has appeared in other films, including No Country for Old Men.

'Revenge' scoop: Christa B. Allen teases murder mystery, Charlotte's 'serious' addiction

Charlotte Grayson is on a downward spiral and with her brother Daniel (Joshua Bowman) now suspected of murder, let’s just say things aren’t looking up for the 17-year-old.

“I think for the next few episodes we get into solving the mystery of what happened at the fire and ice party and Charlotte’s involvement in that becomes complicated because she was present on the beach at that time. She also had other things going on — underage drinking and popping the pills,” actress Christa B. Allen tells EW. “It all becomes this huge inner-woven mystery that we all have to solve, and Charlotte becomes really involved. I’m a key piece.” But will she ever

But in the episodes to come, Charlotte’s reliability is in question as she descends further into a serious addition. “I feel like [taking drugs] was a good, temporary relief for her. It was supposed to be a one-time thing, and it sort of spiraled into coping with her life and her whole current situation,” says Allen. “Moving into episode 16 and beyond, it will get more serious.” READ FULL STORY

'Revenge' engagement party episode: Burning questions answered!

ABC’s addictive sudser Revenge raises the stakes in each new episode. But last night that edict soared to a new level, as viewers were treated to what they’ve been waiting for all season: the return to the series-opening, murderous beach scene. By the end of the hour it was revealed that — SPOILER ALERT — creep Tyler Barrol (Ashton Holmes), not the much-teased Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman), was the person who got shot on the sands in the show’s suspenseful September pilot. The revelation is more than your typical Revenge twist for several reasons, but mostly because it transforms how the season’s remaining seven episodes will play out through the season finale in May.

When that body was flipped over in front of the crowd and revealed to be Tyler instead of Daniel, many questions arose: How long had this been planned? Who really murdered Tyler — Amanda (Margarita Levieva) or Daniel or someone else entirely? Who will get fingered for it? What madness is to come in the season’s final shows? To answer those burning questions and more, EW tapped Revenge star Bowman, executive producer Martin Bowen, and coexecutive producer and episode 15 director Sanford Bookstaver to give us the scoop:


'Revenge' sneak peek: Emily locks and loads her gun during the engagement party episode -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Tomorrow’s the day, Revenge fans! It marks the premiere of “Chaos,” the long-anticipated episode of the ABC soap that will finally return viewers to the events that were previewed at the engagement party for Emily (Emily Van Camp) and Daniel (Josh Bowman) during the series’ pilot. And hark! EW has an exclusive sneak peek from the episode.

The clip finds the aforementioned engaged couple in Emily’s beach house the night before the big Fire & Ice Ball. It should be a happy time, but not all is copacetic, as the pair wants to wiggle out of the party and the clutches of hawking mother Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and overbearing grandfather Edward (William Devane) in light of the paternity bombshell about Daniel’s sister, Charlotte (Christa B. Allen).

“Can’t we just cancel the damn party?” Daniel asks Emily. She retorts: “Trust me, nothing would make me happier, but hundreds of people are traveling hundreds of miles just to be here.” Daniel agrees, before adding: “Just promise me one more time: No secrets of any kind,” he says. “You’ve seen what they’ve done to my family.”

And that’s where things get really interesting. As any Revenge fan knows, Emily harbors more secrets than the Kremlin. The final moments of the clip — which you can find below — see Daniel trotting off to bed while Emily digs out her trusty old gun. But for what? You’ll have to tune in for that, but until then, speculate about what will happen while watching this exclusive sneak peek:


'Revenge': Meet Grandpa Grayson, and see Jack fight! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The tension is getting positively palpable over on ABC’s Revenge. Luckily, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at all that tension coming in the next new episode of the primetime soap, which returns from a three-week hiatus tomorrow, Feb. 8, with an hour titled “Perception.”

The clip below is important for two reasons: First, it’s viewers first glimpse at Grandpa Grayson, played by Knots Landing actor William Devane, and secondly, it reveals the hot-headed side of Jack (Nick Wechsler), who was recovering after being beaten up by henchmen the last time fans saw him. The official release from ABC says that Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) “tries to regain the upper hand by using Conrad’s own father against him,” and regarding Jack, he’ll find himself “wandering deeper into the fray.” That’s illustrated here, when Jack arrives at Grayson Manor madder than hell and ready to take the Graysons down.

ABC fall development 2012: Out to please soap fans?

Like Revenge on ABC? Well you may get a lot more of it.

The lion’s share of the net’s drama pilots in development for fall offer sudsy tales in the vein of the Hamptons-based drama that’s currently tearing up the screen on Wednesdays. (To wit: The drama, which is averaging 8.7 million viewers, leads its hour against old dramas on CBS and NBC among adults 18-34 and key female demos. It’s also the net’s most-watched series in the hour in more than four years, since Lost in 2006-07).

Female-skewing serials fit in best for the home of Grey’s Anatomy and the outgoing Desperate Housewives, so ABC appears to be staying in its wheelhouse with adaptations of the tomes Scruples and 666 Park Avenue and another (with any luck, sexy) update of Beauty and the Beast.

Since no network dares to go into a new season without a legal angle or two, law-dog guru Shawn Ryan (The Shield) has also worked up an action thriller for the Alphabet Network. But even his project promises a serialized (and potentially soapy) take on the formation of a new nuclear nation that threatens our great god-fearing country.

Comedies? Well, the newest crop is a huge (see: smarter) departure from the dreck of 2011-12. Throwaways like Man Up! and Work It have been replaced with British adaptations and the much-needed return of funnywoman Judy Greer. (Remember her in Miss Guided?)

Save for a few more comedies, ABC has just about wrapped up their pilot ordering season. Next step: Make them, screen them, and decide whether they’re good enough to earn a series order for fall.  Here’s what they’ve drummed up. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge': 'FlashForward' alum cast as Emily's newest pawn

Just as the body count is about to rise on ABC’s buzzy soap Revenge, a source tells EW that the show will make up for that by introducing yet another new character, played by FlashForward and Law & Order: Criminal Intent alum Courtney B. Vance. Vance is contracted to guest star on the series, beginning with episode 16, the hour that follows Revenge‘s big engagement party episode, “Chaos,” airing Feb. 15. (The series’ next new installment, episode 14, titled “Perception,” will air Feb. 8.)

Vance’s character factors into the aftermath of the beach murder. He’s been tapped for four episodes and will play a loyal employee of the Conrad (Henry Czerny) and Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) and described as someone “who gets caught up in a public scandal and romantic entanglement that Emily [Emily VanCamp] will leverage to further her agenda against Conrad and Victoria.” Where most see a new face around Southampton, the devilish Emily clearly sees a new target.
