'Revenge' First Look: Olivier Martinez gets close to Victoria...and Emily?

Somehow it doesn’t surprise us that Victoria is looking cozy with media mogul Pascal LeMarchal (guest star Olivier Martinez) in this Revenge First Look, but what’s he doing with Emily on his other arm?

Explanations will be given soon enough as Revenge returns with new episodes March 9. And it is in this upcoming string of fresh episodes that we will first meet Martinez’s character, who is the father of Karine Vanasse’s Margaux and is said to have a romantic history with Victoria. Judging by these exclusive photos from the March 23 hour, however, perhaps their attraction isn’t necessarily a thing of the past. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' season finale to address Ralph Waite's death

NCIS has plans to address the passing of TV legend and recurring cast member Ralph Waite, who died earlier this month at 85.

CBS confirmed Monday that executive producer Gary Glasberg and the writers will honor the memory of Waite — and his character Jackson Gibbs — in this year’s season finale, airing in May.

Waite, best known for his role as John Walton on The Waltons, passed away Feb. 13.

A guest appearance on NCIS in November was among the last TV appearances he made. He had recurred on the show since 2008, playing the father of Mark Harmon’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs. Shortly after Waite’s passing, the cast and crew released a joint statement calling Waite “a tremendous talent and a very special man.”

'Star-Crossed': Malese Jow talks Julia's 'side effects', an upcoming love interest, and more

Last week, viewers were introduced to the alien-invaded world of The CW’s Star-Crossed. There, we met protagonist Emery, a high schooler who had spent most of her life in the hospital thanks to an immune deficiency. And on the day she was finally allowed to return to normal life, so were seven Atrians, the alien species that the government had previously kept segregated from the rest of the world. But when Emery and her best friend, the still-sick Julia, invaded The Sector in hopes of finding the Atrians’ secret healing plant, things got interesting.

By episode’s end, Emery had started a flirtation with Atrian Roman, who then used the healing plant, called Cyper, to help Julia. So what now? For starters: Fewer hospitals. For the rest, we caught up with Malese Jow (who plays Julia) to talk about what the season holds for Emery’s best friend, and more:

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Meredith and Derek spar, Cristina teases wedding chaos

This sneak peek of Thursday’s new episode of Grey’s Anatomy is a hair over a minute long, but it left us with so many questions!

First, how long are Meredith and Derek going to be fighting? On one hand, Meredith has a right to be angry, as she is in this clip. A promise is a promise, and in this case, her husband had agreed to take a step back from work to help with the children. On the other hand, the man got a call from the president of the United States! (Um, probably not this one.) I’m guessing this could be a long debate, folks.

Second, in the midst of Meredith and Derek’s martial spat, Cristina walks in and announces with joy that the drama at the wedding has left her giddy. (“I’m not just a friend, I’m a fan,” Cristina says, referring to April.) As you recall, the last new episode left off right after Jackson declared his love for April. Does this mean April turned Jackson down? Or not? Cristina, elaborate!

Help us pick this apart more by checking out the exclusive clip below: READ FULL STORY

'Dallas': Josh Henderson and EP Cynthia Cidre preview a wild season 3

“I’m pretty much the go-to guy when it comes to sex stuff,” Josh Henderson says with a laugh. And suddenly, we’re happy Dallas is back!

When Season 3 kicks of Feb. 24 (9 p.m. ET on TNT), we quickly learn why Henderson’s John Ross is cheating on new wife Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) with Emma (Emma Bell), who you’ll recall also lives at Southfork. “He only knows how to do business one way, and that’s how JR taught him. It’s like history repeating itself,” Henderson says. “He basically justifies things: ‘I’m doin’ this for us.’ But what Pamela doesn’t know is what this is. He doesn’t want her to find out, obviously. But at the end of the day, stuff’s gonna come crashing down, and I think it’s gonna surprise the audience what ends up happening. It’s pretty dangerous.”

While Henderson jokes that the show is “gettin’ a little weird this season, in a good way,” executive producer Cynthia Cidre looks at it as turning things up to 11. “We decided, let’s just embrace the fun of it,” she says. “There’s definitely a lot more sex. We have a few fistfights, but no one’s landed in the pool yet.” (We also have one pregnancy and two shootings to look forward to.) READ FULL STORY

'Young and the Restless' casts Seahawks fullback

A trip to Disneyland after a big win has apparently been usurped by a guest-starring role on a daytime sudser.

After Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson revealed on NFL Total Access that his guilty pleasure is watching The Young and the Restless, the CBS drama booked the Super Bowl champ for a guest spot.

Robinson will now make his acting debut on March 13. He was written into an episode that will have him appearing alongside Eric Braeden (Victor Newman).

“It was an amazing experience! I’ve been a fan for years, and it was great to meet the personalities on the show,” Robinson said in a statement. “I’ve always thought Y&R was the best show on daytime television because their storylines are always entertaining and intriguing. They welcomed me with open arms, and I felt like a part of the Y&R family.”

 

Rebel Wilson teases 'Super Fun Night' finale, reveals deleted scene that was too crazy for TV

On the season finale of Super Fun Night, Rebel Wilson’s Kimmie has a super-big decision to make about her love life.

Her choices in this debate of the heart: James (Nate Torrence), the sweet and goofy boyfriend, and Richard (Kevin Bishop), Kimmie’s co-worker whose growing affections bubbled to the surface last week and culminated with a big smooch. In the finale, “She kind of manages to scramble and decide which one she’s going to go after,” teases Wilson.

It’s a classic story of torn affection, but oddly, what Wilson is most proud of in the show’s 17-episode run is that there has been, as she sees it, very little classic about it. “It has a unique tone to it compared to other comedies,” she says. But the actress/writer/EP admits that finding the right balance between her signature raunchy humor, dramatic elements, and broad comedy wasn’t easy. “This is my first foray into American television, and I guess what I didn’t realize is…[the list of] what you can’t say is huge,” she says. “There was always at least five minutes cut from every episode of what I thought was super hilarious stuff, but what they deemed inappropriate for family television, whether it was the words I was using or the intention.”

Last week’s Wilson-penned episode, for example, originally contained a flashback scene to a previous year in which Wilson’s character ate a whole pizza on Valentine’s Day because she was depressed and ended up getting an “attack of irritable bowel syndrome.” “[The character] was wearing a beret at the time and I had to go into this alleyway and sh– into the beret,” she says. It got cut. READ FULL STORY

'House of Cards': Kate Mara talks The Thing That Happened to Zoe

The second season of House of Cards begins with a shocking development for ambitious journalist Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) — or, at least, one that’s shocking for anyone who isn’t familiar with the original British version of House of Cards. (If you haven’t watched yet, you might want to stop reading… now.) READ FULL STORY

'Drop Dead Diva' taps 'Pretty Little Liars' vet for guest spot

Janel Parrish is used to being in sticky situations on Pretty Little Liars, but her next dilemma is going to require some professional intervention.

EW has learned exclusively that the actress has been tapped to guest star on the final season of Drop Dead Diva. Parrish will play a character named Chelsea Jones, a cheerleader for a professional basketball team who finds viral video fame after someone captures her epic on-field meltdown on camera. When she decides to sue the team, she calls in Jane (Brooke Elliot) for help, but also becomes a target of bullying by the head cheerleader.

Parrish, who currently plays Mona on ABC Family’s teen hit, will begin filming Friday for the episode, which will air this April.

Drop Dead Diva returns with its final season March 23 at 9 p.m. ET. Colin Egglesfield (The Client List), Virginia Williams (How I Met Your Mother), and Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) are among the guest stars slated for the the season opener. Rick Springfield and Jay DeMarcus from Rascal Flatts are also set to appear this season.

'Doctor Who' alum Karen Gillan to star in ABC pilot 'Selfie'

Doctor Who fans, your prayers (to the Time Lord?) have been answered: Karen Gillan could be coming back to TV.

EW has learned that the former Doctor companion has been cast as the lead in the ABC pilot Selfie, from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek.

The single-cam comedy, said to be inspired by My Fair Lady, centers on a self-obsessed 20-something woman named Eliza Dooley (Gillan), who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. In the pilot, a video of her very public and humiliating breakup goes viral and she enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.

The announcement of the casting comes on the heels of the release of the well-received first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy, in which Gillan appears as blue-skinned alien Nebula.

'Teen Wolf': Dylan O'Brien on Stiles' bro-mantic moment with Scott, the 'crazy' end to the season

Stiles is out of it these days on Teen Wolf, but you would be too if you were possessed by a mischievous and evil Japanese spirit.

And following last week’s epic reveal of that possession, we hear it’s only going to get worse for the gang in Beacon Hills before it gets better. In a chat below, Dylan O’Brien previews the horror to come and breaks down last week’s creepy (and slightly bro-mantic) episode.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We need to start by talking about last week’s episode. Tell me about filming that scene at the hospital between Scott and Stiles because it was, honestly, one of the quieter moments of the episode and still my favorite of the hour.
DYLAN O’BRIEN: Tyler [Posey] and I are always excited when we get those scenes. I think those are the scenes we’re more drawn to because, I guess, those are the ones that get us, too. They get the audience [excited] and those are the scenes that [also] excite us. It’s almost a little nervewracking because you feel a little pressure to portray it nicely. But when you’re there and you do it, I think a lot of my and Tyler’s actual relationship translates to screen because we are really close in real life. We’ve been doing this together for four years now, and the show is really close to both of our hearts, you know? It always will be. But it’s all very personal for us, and it’s all real, I guess, in a sense.

How fun has it been playing evil Stiles?
It’s been awesome. It’s always one of those things that you’re worried about, I guess. I had fun doing it always and it’s been a blast as an actor. It’s been really cool discovering this new character and this entire other essence I get to play that’s so polar opposite from what I’ve already done on the show. At first, I didn’t really know what to do. I also didn’t know entirely what [the situation with the character] was going to be. We get the episodes week by week and I’m kind of rolling with the punches a little. But that’s what I love about the show, though. I find it challenging as an actor to always adapt to what’s being created for your character on the page. So there’s definitely a lot of stuff this season, for sure, that I’d never had to do before or ever had to try.

We’ve seen a few actors — especially on TV in the past few years — have to take on two roles on one show at the same time. When preparing to play Evil Stiles, was there any show or movie that you looked to for inspiration or ideas?
The funny thing is, no. Never. I never thought about it once before I was doing it and I think throughout the whole filming of the season, I didn’t really think about it…There’s always those Jekyll/Hyde roles in movies and stuff. I guess maybe I should have researched before hand. I don’t know. I’m also scared of copying what people have done. So maybe I try to keep myself as ignorant as I can possibly be. Because I feel like you get the most pure performance in that way.

So preview what’s next for me. I heard it’s going to get worse before it gets better, as is usual on Teen Wolf
Well, what we’ve seen now is the Nogitsune and how much power it has over Stiles. I think over the next few episodes we’re going to see that become more of a factor and more of a, like, permanent thing or a danger of it being a permanent thing. The Nogitsune is feeding off everything through Stiles. And the stronger it gets, the more control he has over him, basically. So it gets darker. And of course there’s the other side of the spectrum — we still see Stiles in every episode. We see his struggle with not understanding; he clearly has no control over it. He goes in and out of being aware of it. And you see the Nogitsune getting stronger. So it just gets really dark and crazy….It becomes insanity, basically.

How soon does everyone else catch on about the truth about what’s going on?
I think at this point it’s been pretty weird [for them]. I think it’s so funny watching how everyone’s so, like, I guess, cool with it. [Laughs] They just don’t even believe that it’s happening. But I really think the next episode is where Stiles’ friends — Scott and everybody — see what is happening to their friend.

Preview what you can for me about the finale. This is obviously going to continue building until something big.
I mean, I think any time a person goes through something like this — I think in real life it’s never [laughs] — I think you learn a lot and grow a lot. I think the season has made Stiles stronger. And this whole Nogitsune possession thing could sort of empower him in a human way. He’s survived a lot. And the finale is basically [him having] to face himself, finally. The whole season for him is a struggle with himself — himself being, obviously, the spirit. It will be one or the other, basically. So the finale is crazy because either he dies or the Nogitsune dies and no one knows how to kill the Nogitsune, So it gets weird.

'Intelligence' sneak peek: [Spoiler] in danger -- EXCLUSIVE

In fact, as you’ll see below, he’s less than confident about his survival chances after being infected by  microscopic robots that have been unleashed upon leading artificial intelligence scientists like himself.

'How I Met Your Mother' star Cristin Milioti to topline Rashida Jones pilot

The Mother from How I Met Your Mother has landed her next gig.

EW has confirmed that Cristin Milioti, who currently stars on the CBS hit as the title character, has been cast in Rashida Jones’ upcoming pilot for NBC.

On the single-cam comedy, titled A to Z, Milioti will play one of two leads. Her character, Zelda, is a lawyer at a small public-advocacy firm who is known for her “realist” outlook on life. According to a casting description: “Alternately serious and hilarious, Zelda loves being a grown-up and doesn’t understand why anyone over 20 would go see an animated movie or eat ice cream sundaes. Destiny and fate are not in her vocabulary; she believes she controls her own destiny.”

The comedy follows the relationship between a young couple, named Andrew and Zelda, from meeting to breakup.

Ben Queen (Cars 2) wrote the pilot and will executive produce along with Jones and Will McCormack.
