It's been a good long while since we've heard anything concrete (or metal?) from Bad Robot's proposed HBO adaptation of 1973 sci-fi classic 'Westworld,' but with 'True Detective' raising the network's bar for casting, the J.J. Abrams-produced drama has assembled some major A-list talent. Joining the 'Westworld' pilot are none other than Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, with 'X-Men' star James Marsden in talks for a role as well.
Yesterday saw Marvel playing cryptic with the announcement that 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' would feature 'Xena' veteran Lucy Lawless in a mysterious season 2 role, but its latest addition requires far less Level 7 clearance. Before she enters the 'Age of Ultron,' Cobie Smulders will reprise the role of Agent Maria Hill in 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2!
We're only days away from 'The Walking Dead' season 5 and its gut-ripping new trailer at Comic-Con 2014, but fresh meat just keeps piling up before the big show. Get a new look at a grizzled Rick Grimes and a very healthy-looking Carol and baby Judith in a new pair of photos from 'The Walking Dead' season 5!
Don't let Kate Hudson's giggling and big smiles fool you. This is a great, great Box of Lies competitor who sits before you. On last night's 'Tonight Show,' Hudson and host Jimmy Fallon faced off for another round of Box of Lies, a game that basically hinges on a guest's ability to lie effectively.
Disney XD's forthcoming 'Star Wars' animated series 'Star Wars Rebels' gives us one of our first major canonical looks into the period between trilogies, but even with a brand-new cast of characters, it wouldn't be the same without some major 'Star Wars' names. See for yourself how Obi-Wan Kenobi makes his presence known in the series with a brand-new extended trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels!'
There's this movie -- just a space opera in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- that's coming out next week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Maybe you've heard of it. Late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel is probably counting on that, because he basically let the cast of the film, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, run the show on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
Earlier today brought the expected, if somewhat disheartening news that FX would indeed move forward with 'Fargo' season 2 in 2015, albeit with an all-new story and cast. Now, 'Fargo' producer Noah Hawley has generously stepped up to reveal a major character connection to the first season, as well as the new 1979 time period, and what other Coen brothers films we can expect as influences!
The other day saw 'Sons of Anarchy''s seventh and final season debuting its first photo alongside new info on the 105-minute September 9 premiere, as will this coming week see Kurt Sutter and the cast dishing on the final ride from Comic-Con 2014, but why wait? The 'Sons of Anarchy' final season cast has made yet another surprising addition, while cast and producers dish on the heightened mood permeating SAMCRO.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has kept casting pretty quiet on the march to Comic-Con 2014, particularly compared to the CW's 'Arrow' or 'Flash,' but at long last the Marvel 'Avengers' offshoot series has its first major might. 'Xena' herself, Lucy Lawless will guest star in the upcoming second season of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' but in what marvelous role?
Heading into its record-setting 26th season, 'The Simpsons' show no signs of stopping as 2014 brings with it a bevy of new milestones. For one, that major character death has officially been confirmed for our fall premiere, while 'The Simpsons' bosses have gone on record about the 'Futurama' and 'Family Guy' crossovers, and FX's massive 'Simpsons World' app prepares for launch!
