Well, if the second season renewal of AMC's 'Turn' and the early season 2 order for 'Breaking Bad' spinoff 'Better Call Saul' have taught us anything, it's that the network truly can't afford anymore misfires. To wit, the critically and commercially snoozed-upon 'Halt and Catch Fire' has officially been granted a second season, bringing Lee Pace's computer revolutionary back in 2015.
Pierce Brosnan is back in the spy game, baby! Although the former Bond, James Bond isn't jumping back into 007's shoes (hey, Daniel Craig is pretty good at that, okay?), Brosnan hasn't yet abandoned his action hero status, and he'll next appear in this month's 'The November Man,' where he will play -- shock! -- a spy.
By now, everyone is familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people heed the call to throw buckets of ice water on themselves to spread awareness of ALS and raise donations to support The ALS Association. Everyone, from your many Facebook friends to A-list celebs have been participating, but, for us, there's nothing like seeing the likes of Thor, Iron Man and Star-Lord step up to the plate.
Jessica Alba's likeness has been committed to at least four action figures at this point -- the 'Dark Angel' doll, the 'Fantastic Four' figure, at least two 'Sin City' mini-Albas -- but that doesn't mean that the actress keeps the little hers around her house. In fact, Alba keeps them where they belong. In storage. Away from her family. Considering how racy her latest doll is, that's probably a good idea.
Fans of The CW's 'Arrow' have been on pins and...well, arrows in waiting for the casting announcement of Ra's al Ghul, but the League of Assassins head won't be the last DC villain to cross paths with Oliver Queen this year. The latest to enter the fray is 'Tron: Legacy' star Matt Ward as DC archer Komodo, while we've also learned that Felicity backstory episode "Oracle" may not have as significant a title as we'd hoped.
It's increasingly less likely we'll ever see Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul return to their famed 'Breaking Bad' roles for AMC spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' but with the 2014 Emmy Awards airing this Sunday, NBC has cooked up an even quicker reunion. Watch Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul trade barbs with 'Veep''s Julia Louis-Dreyfus in a new 2014 Emmy sketch for "Barely Legal Pawn."
Reactions have been somewhat mixed toward FX's Guillermo del Toro vampire thriller, 'The Strain,' but if you thought the network would look to contain a spread like that, you're sadly mistaken. 'The Strain' will officially continue to infect TV sets through 2015, having been renewed for a second season of post-apocalyptic horror.
Yesterday, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' offered a cryptic season 2 tease in the form of a mysterious billboard looming over Los Angeles, but today's big reveal flies far higher. One-time 'Wonder Woman' star and all-around asskicker Adrianne Palicki is officially trading DC for Marvel, signing onto 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 as the show's first ostensible costumed hero, Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse.
"Summertime! Summertime, people!" Sure, Bruce Willis. We can blame this on it being the summertime.
The actor hit 'The Late Show' last night to ... honestly, we don't even know, but eventually it devolved into Willis eating corn on the cob harmonica-style and getting absolutely covered in melted butter. It seems that Willis is a huge fan of corn -- can't get enough of it! -- and he was eager to share some corn-centric life hacks with host David Letterman.
Disney XD's 'Star Wars Rebels' has been artfully teasing us for its fall premiere with a series of short clips from the new animated series, though fans finally have a target to stay on for the official premiere. The network has officially granted 'Star Wars Rebels' a one-hour October debut, but how can Disney viewers see the premiere even earlier?
