'Veep' season 3 trailer: Becoming the most powerful person on Earth

Selina Meyer is running for President! But the campaign isn’t quite what she expected.

In Veep‘s season 3 trailer, Selina is not only prevented from speaking her mind, but also told that in order to “maximize” her chances of becoming the POTUS, she pretty much has to fire her entire staff. Well, except for Sue.

Watch Selina plan her campaign strategy — and say inappropriate things — in the comedy’s latest trailer:

'Orphan Black': Jordan Gavaris talks Felix and having the best fake accent on TV

When people meet Jordan Gavaris for the first time, the reaction is usually the same: “Wait, you’re not British?” But don’t feel sorry for Gavaris. He brought this all on himself with his flawlessly flamboyant portrayal of Sarah’s foster brother Felix on BBC America’s Orphan Black. The accent employed by Canadian born and bred Gavaris to play the English Felix is so convincing, in fact, that even after hanging out several times on and off set with Gavaris, I’m still not entirely convinced that it’s not his normal accent that he’s faking. The distinction became even murkier when I caught up with the actor in his trailer on set of filming for season 2 on Orphan Black (which returns on BBC America April 19), because when Gavaris is filming scenes as Felix, he stays in accent all day long rather than flipping back and forth. He also uses different words and employs many of Felix’s mannerisms to help stay in character. So, essentially, you’re talking to Jordan as Felix. Or is it Felix as Jordan? Like I said…confusing. In any event, here’s part of our chat in which Gavaris talks about meeting the fans, understanding the scripts, and trying to convince people on his show that he’s not actually from the U.K.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Do people still get freaked out when they find out that you’re not actually British and that is just a phony accent you use for Felix?
JORDAN GAVARIS: Oh, yeah. Michiel Huisman is playing a character on the show and he was notably frightened when I turned it off at the end of the day. At the read through I’m also in character because…well, I’m just a weirdo. Even the way I interact with people and the gestures I use are different. But to answer your question that I’ve prattled on about, yes, they get weird. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman on why Sunday's episode is the one you 'absolutely' have to watch

We’re hitting the home stretch of season 4 for AMC’s The Walking Dead, and according to creator Robert Kirkman, said homestretch is going to be a doozy. That doozydom — yes, I just made that word up — will begin this Sunday night with an episode that Kirkman insists is “definitely one that people are going to remember and it’s definitely one people are going to talk about. If there is one episode of The Walking Dead that you absolutely had to watch this season, it would be this one.”

Translation: Uh-oh. Every time I hear something like that I get very nervous for everyone on screen. I chatted with Kirkman to get his take on the second half of season 4 so far — which has seen our big collection of survivors divided up into smaller groups — and have him look ahead to the pivotal episode on Sunday.

Lawsuits claim Amazon Prime gouged customers on items with free shipping

That “free shipping” perk of your Amazon Prime membership might not be such a great deal after all. Two separate lawsuits recently filed against Amazon claim the “world’s largest online retailer” encourages sellers to inflate prices on some products in order to cover shipping costs.

A $79 Amazon Prime membership (soon to cost $99)  is advertised as providing customers with free two-day shipping on “millions” of items. Alabama resident Marcia Burke accused Amazon of encouraging third-party vendors to “conceal the shipping charges in the price of the product,” according to her lawsuit filed last Friday in federal court in Seattle.

The suit gives this example: If an item regularly sells for $10 with $3.99 shipping, Amazon suggests a vendor selling that product to a Prime member — someone who is getting “free shipping” — should charge $13.99 or higher. Prime-eligible products are highlighted on the website, and the suit claims, “[Amazon] provides these vendors priority by showing their items first in the Prime member’s product search results,” essentially duping those customers.

'Orphan Black': Meet the new clone! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

A brand new season of Orphan Black means a brand new clone. And we have all the intel on said clone right here! Meet Jennifer Fitzsimmons, a 28-year old teacher and swim coach. And you are about to meet Jennifer the same way Cosima does, through a series of video diaries that Cosima discovers while researching her own respiratory illness.

According to co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, Cosima may not like what she finds. “Jennifer is a bright-eyed Midwestern pure of heart girl,” says Manson. But, as Fawcett explains, “Jennifer is a clone who was naïve, she didn’t know she was a clone, and was being monitored by her boyfriend. She gets sick, and with a kind of the version of the illness that Katja had. And of course, a version of the illness that Cosima has. Just that discovery alone is the kind of discovery that shakes Cosima. It really rattles her.”

'Orange Is the New Black': Get a first look at season 2 -- PHOTOS

Black is (almost) back! And from the looks of things, not much has changed.

The first photos from Orange Is the New Black‘s second season are equal parts comedy and drama. The first image is all about the scene that closed out season 1, when Piper took out all of her bare-fisted anger on Tiffany. To be fair, Tiffany did come at Piper first — but as we can see, it’s Piper who’s left standing with blood on her hands. And by the look on her faced, we’d bet she just got caught. We can only hope she spends a little time in maximum security, if only so that we can see Miss Claudette again.

In the second image, we see Red once again standing her ground. This time, she’s face to face with a new character, Lorraine Toussaint’s Vee. If we had to guess what comes next, it’s that Vee quickly learns  you don’t mess with Red — unless you want to eat dirt (and/or tampon sandwiches) for the rest of your sentence. Or until you somehow win her over. Also, are they fighting in a greenhouse? Perhaps we’ll be getting a few new settings in season 2.

'True Detective' deleted scene: Why Rust and Lori broke up -- VIDEO

True Detective fans certainly have no delusions that damaged philosopher Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) was an easy man to live with; his repartee with partner Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) was proof of that. But the only true glimpses viewers had of Rust’s brief attempt at a functioning relationship — with Hart family friend Lori (Elizabeth Reaser) — were in fragmented scenes that played like fading memories. (Spoilers ahead.)

Marty’s wife Maggie (Michelle Monaghan) introduced Rust to Lori after the detectives “solved” the grisly murder of Dora Lange. Beyond that, pretty much all we knew was that the relationship ended badly. But now that the season has ended, a new deleted scene sheds light on just how profoundly the death of Rust’s child impacted his ability to move forward in life. His inability to heal — or his desire not to — leads to one explosive, but not surprising, confrontation:

A&E pulls 'Those Who Kill' after two episodes

Apparently, Monday nights are more welcoming to serial killers than those who hunt them.

EW has confirmed that A&E has pulled Chloë Sevigny’s new drama, Those Who Kill, from its 10 p.m. Monday slot after only two episodes. As a result, the network will move Bates Motel back an hour, from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. The placement of Those Who Kill is still undecided. As of right now, it’s off the network’s schedule.

'Survivor: Cagayan': Jeff Probst says the Brains tribe 'was so bad it was kind of funny'


Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First question, Jeff, and this one comes courtesy of Alexis: Does, like, the rooster have to get it on with one of the hens to make eggs? 
JEFF PROBST: Given I’m from Kansas, I should know this and I think I do. The answer is no, hens do not need roosters to lay eggs. But I see why so many people think so — it would seem to make sense. But the truth is, hens lay eggs whether there is a rooster around or not. But if you want baby chicks, then you need the rooster to fertilize the egg. Did I get it right? READ FULL STORY

Tyler Blackburn will return to 'Pretty Little Liars' in season 5

We knew he couldn’t stay away for long.

EW has confirmed that Tyler Blackburn will return as a series regular for Pretty Little Liars‘ fifth season. Blackburn will reprise his role as Caleb Rivers, Hanna’s ex-boyfriend who left town to investigate his family’s history (and so much more) in Ravenswood. But with Ravenswood‘s cancellation, it sounds like Blackburn is ready to get back on the “Who is ‘A’?” bandwagon.

Pretty Little Liars season 5 will premiere Tuesday, June 10 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.

Claire Holt no longer a series regular on 'The Originals'

And then there were two.

EW has confirmed that Tuesday night was Claire Holt’s last episode as a series regular on The Originals, meaning the Original sister has officially left the building, at least in some capacity.

Holt no longer being a regular leaves the door open for her to guest star in future recurring arcs, even as early as sometime later this season, we’re told. However, as of right now, nothing is certain in terms of her potential return.

Both Holt and executive producer Julie Plec are set to attend the PaleyFest panel on March 22.
