Robert Rodriguez's El Rey network casts Adrianne Palicki, two more in 'From Dusk Till Dawn' -- EXCLUSIVE
Grindhouse guy Robert Rodriguez is diversifying — and he’s got a would-be Wonder Woman on board as well.
Rodriguez is currently launching a new 24-hour cable channel called El Rey Network, which plans to “unite the most culturally diverse generation in history through fearless, badass and original content that awakens the renegade in everyone” — according to a press release, at least. Its content will include cult classic films, next-gen sports, and original series like From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, a 10-episode supernatural crime saga inspired by Rodriguez’s 1996 feature.
The drama’s cast already includes Wilmer Valderrama as criminal mastermind Carlos, D.J. Cotrona of Dear John as bank robber Seth Gecko (a role played by George Clooney in the film), Zane Holtz of The Perks of Being a Wallflower as his volatile brother Richie (played by Quentin Tarantino in the film), and Jesse Garcia of Sons of Anarchy as Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez.
Now EW has learned of three more additions to the cast: Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki, Jake Busey (yes, son of Gary), and Lane Garrison, late of the multi-network miniseries Bonnie & Clyde. Palicki plays Vanessa Styles, a woman from Seth Gecko’s past. Busey plays eccentric, mythology-obsessed professor Aiden Tanner. And Garrison is Pete, a liquor store clerk who gets more than he bargained for when the Gecko brothers enter his shop.
From Dusk Till Dawn will be the fledgling network’s first scripted original. Though a premiere date for the series has not yet been announced, El Rey is available nationally beginning this week.
Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) and Dorian (Michael Ealy) are on the case of a suspicious death at a hospital on tonight’s episode of Almost Human. Sounds pretty standard, right? Well, there’s nothing standard about this case, as the stars explain in this exclusive video preview.
In the episode, airing Monday at 8 p.m. ET, the duo is trying to find the person running a black market ring that specializes in bio-mechanical hearts, which they are shutting off remotely in order to resell them to the highest bidder. It’s crime circa 2048, people!

We’ll be seeing less of two members of the Brody family on the fourth season of Homeland, according to a report.
TVLine reports that Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor, who play matriarch Jessica and daughter Dana, respectively, are not returning on a full-time basis to the Emmy Award-winning series in the upcoming fourth season. Showtime has not yet responded to EW’s request for comment.
The move comes as a result of producers’ plans to dial-back storylines involving the Brody family drama, according to the report. But they have both reportedly been invited back on a guest-starring basis.
Baccarin, who just welcomed a son in October, was nominated this year for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category.
Homeland will conclude its third season this Sunday.
Hawaii Five-0 is usually the action-adventure junkie’s dream, but in Friday’s episode, in which McGarrett and Co. work a cold case from the years just after Pearl Harbor, you won’t see quite the same type of action.
Executive producer Peter Lenkov said he and fellow writer on the episode Ken Solarz wanted to do something a little more intimate and dial back the present-day action in favor of a more “intimate” setting — the large part of the episode takes place in a single room, where a Korean War veteran recounts to McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) the story of his father’s death in a World War II Japanese internment camp and seeks his help in solving the cold case. “We’re an action-adventure series,” says Lenvok, “so it was very different for us but, as writers, we wanted to be very selfish and able to write from the heart and not have be about McGarrett leading the charge into a room with a machine gun.”
The chance to do something out-of-the norm for this special appealed to Lenkov, who had been researching the subject of internment camps since the pilot episode of the show. “Originally, in the pilot, I had McGarett go to the Arizona Memorial, see his grandfather’s name, put his hand up, and touch the etching. That was a scene I ended up having to cut out of the pilot but doing research for that, I found out about the internment camps and that stuff. It was always just something we put in the bible of the show to get to one day — to do a story about it, with no idea of what the story was,” he says. READ FULL STORY
'The Normal Heart': Inside Ryan Murphy's HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's acclaimed play -- EXCLUSIVE
Larry Kramer’s Tony award-winning 1985 play The Normal Heart—which details the ominous spread of HIV/AIDS among a group of gay men in 1980s New York City—is finally getting a movie adaptation on the small screen. Directed by American Horror Story and Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, Heart will premiere this spring on HBO and features a star-studded cast including Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, and Taylor Kitsch (below, in a photo Ruffalo tweeted out this summer). “It’s a movie about AIDS, but it’s also really a civil rights movie,” says Murphy, who worked with Kramer on the script for three years. “I think it’s more timely than ever before. It’s really about the quest to be seen, not as a gay person or a straight person but just a person…. It’s an activist movie that also has a really great love story in it.” Adds the director, “Of everything I’ve done in my career, I think it is the biggest labor of love.” READ FULL STORY
