'Agents of SHIELD': Five scoops from the set

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is notoriously one of the most tight-lipped shows on TV. But on Thursday, a trip to the show’s top-secret homebase location revealed a few juicy scoops that are sure to excite fans.

Here are the highlights. [Warning: Spoiler-phobes will want to look away.]: READ FULL STORY

'About a Boy' reunites Adrianne Palicki with 'Friday Night Lights' creator

Adrianne Palicki is reuniting with her old Friday Night Lights boss Jason Katims.

EW has confirmed that the former FNL star has booked a guest arc on NBC’s About a Boy, which is executive produced by Katims, playing the love interest of David Walton’s Will, the man-child at the center of the show and of the book by Nick Hornby, on which the series is based. Palicki, who will play a doctor named Samantha Lake, is set to appear in seven episodes.

This is far from the first time Katims has visited his well of FNL talent to populate his new shows. Matt Lauria, Jurnee Smollett, Michael B. Jordan, and Minka Kelly are just a few of the alums who have visited Katims’ other NBC show, Parenthood.

It’s probably for the best that Palicki has waited this long to reunite with Katims, as just last week, he confirmed that both his one-hour drama and forthcoming comedy exist in the same reality. Walton recently had a cameo in an episode of Parenthood, playing his character from About a Boy, and soon, Dax Shepard will also have a cameo appearance on Boy. “I’ve never done anything like that before,” Katims said last week, but “it seemed like a natural thing to do.”

Palicki’s first episode does not yet have an air date. About a Boy premieres Feb. 22.

'Hawaii Five-0': Rob Corddry lands magical role in fan-built episode -- EXCLUSIVE

Rob Corddry is hanging up his clown shoes to join the world of magic for an upcoming episode of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0.

EW has learned exclusively that the actor, who plays clown/doctor Cutter/Roy Spindell on Comedy Central’s Children’s Hospital, has been tapped to play a former high school classmate of Chin’s (Daniel Dae Kim) who crosses paths with the cop at a high school reunion. Corddry’s character, a professional magician named Tony, is described as a “humorously sleazy” man who has a long rap sheet and soon becomes a suspect in a murder investigation.

The episode — the plot and details of which were voted on by fans late last year — does not yet have an air date. Jorge Garcia also guests in the episode, reprising his role as Chin’s friend and former classmate Jerry.

'The Vampire Diaries' bosses reveal the seven biggest debates from the writers' room, and the two smallest

Five seasons in and 100 episodes later, the writers behind all things related to Mystic Falls, the Salvatore brothers, and of course, doppelgängers have given us countless twists, turns, and heartbreaking memorable moments. But what were the stories that turned out differently than they expected? And if that’s the case, what had been their original plan? Was Elena originally going to remain a vampire? Actually, no. Was Jeremy always going to come back from the dead? Again, not so much. We caught up with executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to get a look back at seven of the biggest debates from the writers room over the past 100 episodes, as well as a glimpse into two storylines they never questioned and the real reason why the Originals are immortal (Hint: It wears a suit.).

Check out the biggest debates below:

'New Girl': Hannah Simone and Lamorne Morris talk Prince's guest spot, Winston's new job -- VIDEO

In the video below, the duo teases an “awesome” guest spot from musical icon Prince, which will take place in the episode that airs after the Super Bowl, and talk about what’s coming up in the professional lives of their characters. As you’ll recall, Cece recently took up a job at Nick’s bar and if she’s half as good at that as Simone is at bouncing a balloon — which both actors did as part of EW’s Ultimate Balloon Challenge — she’s in good shape. (Spoiler Alert: Simone reveals Cece will likely continue to underwhelm at the bar.) Meanwhile, Morris teases a new career path for Winston that he detects we’re going to enjoy.

A 'Sherlock' movie? 'We don't rule anything out'

Might Sherlock fans one day get to see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman sleuthing it up on the big screen? Given the episodes of the Conan Doyle update are already feature-length and Sherlock now boasts two genuine film stars, that seemed like a reasonable question to ask cocreator Steven Moffat when EW visited the show last year for this week’s cover story. “We don’t rule anything out,” Moffat replied.

'Sherlock': Why Benedict Cumberbatch almost turned down the role of Holmes

While literally dozens of actors have played the role of Sherlock Holmes it is now hard to imagine anyone but Benedict Cumberbatch portraying the super sleuth in Sherlock, the subject of this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story. But Cumberbatch thought twice when Sherlock cocreators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss originally offered him the part which, over the past few years, has propelled him from relatively unknown character actor to global star. Why? Precisely because he was concerned the role might do just that.

“My reservation was ‘Well, this is a very iconic character, there will be a lot of attention on it,'” says Cumberbatch. “This was before I had had any significant success [but] I knew there would still be a lot of focus on it. And while I had done work, it wasn’t stepping into the populist limelight like playing a character like Holmes. So I did have a pause for thought.”

'How I Met Your Mother' to reveal huge piece of mythology next week. Plus, scoop on the final episodes

With only ten episodes of How I Met Your Mother left, the next few episodes are going to be back with farewells, surprises and, apparently, huge reveals.

Among them? The names of Ted’s children, which executive producer Craig Thomas told EW and other reporters Wednesday night, happens in next week’s episode! “You’re going to learn the kids names next week in ‘Unpause,'” he said. “Someone’s going to get mad at me [for saying] that.”

That’s not all Thomas revealed following HIMYM’s panel during the Television Critics Association Press Tour, where the show’s impending end made for moments of reflection (Josh Radnor shared a story about how the cast resurrected their breakfast meeting tradition at the start of this season) and thanks (particularly for longtime director Pam Fryman, whom was credited by the cast for setting a humble tone on set). The show’s hour-long finale, titled “Last Forever, parts 1 and 2,” was also a hot topic, with Thomas sharing, “What you see on March 31 has been the plan all along and we hope that people see why we did have that. We leave the series with a certain message that we wanted to convey and that we wanted the whole series we wanted to be about. It’s very positive.”

'Arrow' boss teases Roy's 'Batman Begins'-like story arc; Plus, four more scoops

The back half of Arrow‘s second season is going to be a trying one for young Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).

After being injected with Mirakuru in the mid-season finale, the first episode back, airing Wednesday night, will explore the benefits — and consequences — of his newfound strength. “We’re going to learn starting with episode 10 that the Mirakuru may give you incredible strength and it really may accelerate your healing, but it comes with some very significant mental downsides as well,” teases executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “And Roy will be experiencing those in the present, and Slade in the past [via flashbacks] will begin to develop those difficulties.”

Guggenheim adds that as everything about Roy’s current predicament becomes clearer, we’re also going to see how it affects the people around him — Thea and Oliver included. “We always said that this year, Roy is going to go through a crucible. And the Mirakuru [storyline] is basically that ordeal and for sure when he comes out the other side — if he comes out the other side — he will be a different person and set on a different path,” he says. “You will start to see that as early as episode 12.”

It’s part of the longer story the writers are telling with Roy, explains Guggenheim, one that shows him going “from being sort of the street urchin we met in episode 15 last year to somebody who could potentially inherit the Arrow’s mantel as Roy Harper did in the comic books. We’re never really driven too much by what we call the comic book destinies of characters, but we’re very much aware of them and we’re very much aware that we’re telling a Batman Begins-style story for all of our characters. And obviously the Mirakuru and what Roy will experience in the wake of episode 9 is a big part of that Batman Begins-like story for him.”

Guggenheim also teased a few more plot points that await fans in the second half of the season. Here are answers to some more burning questions:
