Entertainment Weekly highlights television’s best 25 characters for their latest issue. To celebrate, the publication convinced two actors to take on different personas for two collector covers.

Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus swap roles for a gender-bending shoot. Both actors do drag to channel each other’s popular characters on House of Cards and Veep respectively.

Julia dressed as HoC’s Frank Underwood is far more convincing than Kevin as Veep‘s Selina Meyer. Spacey does not make for one pretty girl. Check out the other cover below.

When True Blood meets its true death in a few weeks, one cast member won’t be unemployed for too long. Deborah Ann Woll, who plays vampire Jessica, already has a new gig lined up. The 29-year-old is swapping out supernaturals for superheroes.

The True Blood actress has been tapped to take the female lead in the upcoming Netflix drama, Daredevil. Woll will play Karen Page, the on-again/off-again love interest to the titular blind crimefighter played by Charlie Cox. She joins previously announced cast members Vincent D’Onofrio, Rosario Dawson, Elden Henson and Peter Shinkoda on the Marvel series.

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Nominations & Snubs

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were announced this morning at the TV Academy in North Hollywood. HBO, once again, reigns supreme beating out rival networks with 99 total nominations. Silicon Valley, The Normal Heart, Veep, True Detective and naturally Game of Thrones all being recognized by the Academy. Behind it were CBS with 47 noms, NBC with 46, and FX with 45.

In terms of individual shows, Game of Thrones is this year’s most nominated program. Close behind were Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven with 18 and 17 nominations respectively. I was pleasantly surprised to see Adam Driver (Girls) and Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) get some love.

On the flip side, Modern Family‘s Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara were snubbed. Also missing out were The Blacklist‘s James Spader and The Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany. How many characters does the latter have to play to get some Emmy lovin’.

The Americans, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife also missed out in the big categories. The latter’s omission certainly hurts given no broadcast shows made the Best Drama cut. Arguably, the CBS program had one of its best creative years ever.

Winners will be announced at the 66th annual Primetime Emmys ceremony on August 25, to be hosted by Seth Meyers. Check out the rest of the nominations below.

Rosario Dawson Joins Netflix’s Daredevil Series

I’ve loved Rosario Dawson since her breakout role in the controversial Kids. Naturally, I’m beyond stoked she’s heading to Hell’s Kitchen for Netflix’s upcoming Daredevil series on a recurring basis.

Dawson is the first female character added to the superhero show. She “will play a dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.”

Chelsea Handler Hosting New Talk Show On Netflix

When Chelsea Handler announced she was ending Chelsea Lately on E!, many assumed she was in the running to replace David Letterman on CBS. Turns out she was shopping around a new talk show, but just to a different media outlet. The 39-year-old comedian is bringing her brand of humor to Netflix to launch the streaming service’s first ever talk show, set to debut in early 2016.

“The Internet has disrupted many of the conventions of traditional television and together with Chelsea Handler, Netflix is looking forward to reimagining the late night talk show for the on-demand generation, starting with the late night part.” – Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos

No word if the talk show will be daily, weekly or other frequency. As part of the multi-layered deal, Handler will also provide a stand-up special and docu-comedy specials. Chelsea‘s first stand-up special will start streaming on October 16 and it will be based on her sold-out tour of Uganda Be Kidding Me Live.

Handler officially leaves E! on August 26 when her talk show signs off after seven years. Read Chelsea’s statement regarding her new deal below.

Move over Ben Affleck. Someone else is donning Matt Murdock’s signature red horns. Charlie Cox has reportedly snagged the titular role in Marvel’s upcoming live-action series, Daredevil, airing on Netflix. Cox is an English actor known best for his starring role in Stardust opposite Claire Danes and Michelle Pfeiffer. Recently, the 31-year-old actor appeared on the third season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

The on-demand service has placed an initial order of 13 episodes. Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight steps in as showrunner after Drew Goddard stepped down over the weekend. Though Goddard remains as a consultant, he’ll spend the majority of this time on Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff, Sinister Six.

Daredevil is one of four new superhero series ordered by Netflix. The others being Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The four characters will band together in a miniseries airing also on Netflix titled The Defenders.

With ABC also ordering the Captain America spinoff Agent Carter for midseason, along with renewing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel is on its way to conquering the small screen as it did the silver one. Check out photos of Cox below.

Be sure to leave June 6 absolutely free. Netflix’s hit show Orange Is The New Black returns for another season of prison hijinks. I fully expect fans of the show to binge watch all 13 episodes of the addictive show in one seating with only minimal bathroom and snack breaks. I wish all shows did this. I hate waiting a week (sometimes more) for a new episode.

Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Laverne Cox and Kate Mugrew all return with new addition Lorraine Toussaint as Yvonne “Vee” Parker joining in on the fun. As the trailer states, “This is like next-level crazy…” I can’t wait.

Find out what all your favorite female inmates at Litchfield prison have been up to since last year. Watch the trailer below.
