'Gotham': First image of Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock

We can say this about Donal Logue’s new look in Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham…he’s certainly not in Charming anymore. The leather jacket. The detective hat. We dig it.

As previously reported, Logue, arguably known best for his work on Sons of Anarchy, will play Det. Harvey Bullock in the buzzy Fox project. Bullock is the rough-around-the-edges partner and mentor of Det. Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), the character at the center of the series.

The Gotham pilot is executive produced by Mentalist EP Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon (CSI). Cannon is also directing the pilot, which is currently in production.

'Reign' star Anna Popplewell reveals [spoiler!] is getting married, talks Francis and Mary's 'happily ever after'

Reign‘s newest royal couple, Francis and Mary, just got back from their honeymoon, and things are already looking grim. For starters, Bash is still in love with Mary — even though he ended the last episode by kissing a hot hunter — and Lola has admitted that she is pregnant with Francis’ child. Add all that to the fact that King Henry just humped a woman out of a window to her death, and we’ve got some very exciting drama ahead of us.

To talk about what comes next for the very pregnant Lola, and what Olivia was saying about the darkness, we caught up with Anna Popplewell (Lola). She told us all about the love triangle, Henry’s “misbehaviors,” and an upcoming wedding: READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' finale moves off Sunday night for first time in 12 years


The 28th Survivor season finale and reunion show is heading back to its roots — Wednesday night. Entertainment Weekly has learned that the Survivor: Cagayan three-hour extravaganza will air on CBS, May 21 from 8-11pm. Richard Hatch won his million dollar check on a Wednesday night back in the summer of 2000, then the show (and the finale/reunion combo) moved to Thursdays. But in 2002 during season 4, CBS moved the Survivor: Marquesas finale to Sunday night. It went back to Thursday for Survivor: Thailand later in 2002, but then returned to Sunday after that for Survivor: The Amazon is 2003. And that is where the final episode and reunion have stayed ever since…until now. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' producer on how Suicide Squad episode came to be

The long-awaited Suicide Squad episode of Arrow is here!

In the episode, Diggle (David Ramsey) is recruited by Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) for a mission to retrieve a dangerous chemical agent that poses a huge threat to the country. The catch? He’s forced to work with the team of criminals that comic book fans know as the Suicide Squad. Among them: Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Shrapnel. And, of course, his ex-wife Lyla (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), who executive producer Marc Guggenheim said was the catalyst for the episode.

“We wanted to do a Lyla-Diggle story,” he said. “We sort of established this relationship at the end of last year, and Diggle and Lyla [got] back together in episode 6 of this year. And it started off with, ‘What would be something good to have them fight about?’ And someone pitched in the writer’s room: ‘What if Lyla was involved with the Suicide Squad and Diggle was not approving of it? That would be a nice conflict for them.’” And it is. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Gale Anne Hurd discusses that 'incredibly profound' episode and what's next

Is that last Walking Dead episode still sinking in? If so, that’s not such a surprise seeing as how the events of “The Grove” — in which Carol shot her “adopted” daughter Lizzie in the head after Lizzie stabbed and killed her sister Mika to prove that she would come back to life — were definitely hard to digest. (Get it? Digest? Zombies? Oh, never mind.) We already chatted with Carol herself, Melissa McBride, about the controversial episode, and also got the full lowdown from showrunner Scott M. Gimple, but I know what you’re thinking: What the heck does producer Gale Anne Hurd have to say about this whole thing? Well, that’s what I was thinking too so I caught up with Hurd to get her take on the episode as well as her thoughts on season 4 and fan reaction to the show, as well as a tease on what to expect next and an update as to that big Walking Dead spin-off. So read on…if you dare. READ FULL STORY

Caterina Scorsone to return to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is quickly filling up with familiar faces. First, there was the news that Isaiah Washington will return as Dr. Burke, and now, EW has confirmed that Caterina Scorsone will once again set foot in Seattle.

Scorsone plays Amelia, Derek’s youngest sister and a fellow neurosurgeon, who many fans might recognize from the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Scorsone appeared briefly on Grey’s but was a regular on Practice, where her character’s main story dealt with drug addiction. After Amelia’s fiance died of an overdose, she got clean in enough time to give birth to a child that had only half a brain.

By the end of Practice‘s run, Amelia was clean and happily involved with fellow doctor James. As for her return to Grey’s, we only know that she will first appear sometime in May and will then recur for the rest of season 10. TV Guide first broke the news of her casting.

'Pretty Little Liars' music: Singer-songwriter Chris Arena gives an inside look

chris-arena.jpg

For singer-songwriter Chris Arena, everything changed the night that he heard Alexi Murdoch’s “Orange Sky” on The O.C. In that moment, he decided to walk away from a life filled with touring and paying bars to perform so that he could get a chance to really be heard. Realizing what great television music moments could be, he decided to focus on cinematic music.

“[The O.C.] broke so many good acts,” Arena said. “It almost set the tone for, I feel like, the Grey’s Anatomys and the Dawson’s Creeks; those shows really paved the way for this whole movement of new artists focusing on cinematic music. I just picked a point and focused.”

More specifically, he picked ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars. “My brother [and] his girlfriend – they’re a little younger than I am – he and his girlfriend and all her friends, they’re obsessed with the show. They would talk about it and geek out on it. I just thought that was a good target. I wasn’t really familiar with the show that much, and I started watching it, and I kind of secretly developed a really strong liking for the show, and I thought it was interesting. It worked out really nicely because they needed a lot of music that dealt with heartbreak and singer-songwriter acoustics. It was a nice match.”

So with that idea in mind, Arena started writing. “I started to write songs based on some of the scenes I’d been watching, and to put it in a polite way, I kind of harassed this one editor at Pretty Little Liars and sent him maybe 10 or 15 fully produced songs,” Arena said. “The first eight or nine didn’t get a response, and then he finally picked up on one, and he said, ‘We’re gonna try it out.’ And they used a 17-second clip of a song called “Babyfish.” They had a lot of people that got on board with the music, and they invited me to the editing bay, and one thing led to another. It worked out pretty well, actually. It was a very organic, natural process in that sense.”

Now, Arena has had six songs featured on Pretty Little Liars, as well as another on the now-canceled spinoff Ravenswood. So how does the process work? Well for starters, Arena is given months to brainstorm, write, and produce his music. For example, he was brought to the studio back in August to watch the Caleb and Hanna breakup scene, which would later air in the show’s Jan. 7 winter premiere. READ FULL STORY
