Wayward Pines was a pleasant surprise for FOX last summer, scoring stellar ratings. Naturally, the network renewed the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series. I actually quite enjoyed it myself.

When it returns for its sophomore season, Jason Patric steps into the lead role for a vacating Matt Dillon. Djimon Hounsou and Nimrat Kaur also join the show as new series regulars.

Carla Gugino isn’t letting her regular gig on Showtime’s Roadies prevent her from returning. She’ll reprise her role of Kate Hewson for Season 2, albeit in a limited capacity. Find out below who else from the first season booked a return ticket back to Wayward Pines.

Obviously, Cookie Lyons (Taraji P. Henson) isn’t joining her husband in the slammer. Rather, it appears Cookie is caged up for some sort of performance. Is she now doing backup for her sons 😉 However, if she was behind bars, the fabulous matriarch could rock an orange jumpsuit like no other, right?

FOX just unveiled a new promo for the return of Empire. Titled, “New Money, New Music, New Power,” the video is pretty much a fashion reel for all the fierce new outfits Lyons rocks in Season 2. The feathery frock above is just one of the stunning ensembles.

Empire returns to FOX on September 23. I can’t wait for the hip-hop drama to return. Anyone else miss seeing Cookie slap Boo Boo Kitty around? Check out the clip below.

Spike TV’s breakout hit, Lip Sync Battle, returns Thursday, July 9. The series still has plenty of big names to feature before closing out its freshman run. Among those still on deck are Iggy Azalea facing off against her fiancee Nick Young, Will Arnett versus Alison Brie and Andy Cohen battling it out with Willie Geist.

The LL Cool J-hosted series brings out the big guns for the two-part season finale. Empire’s Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard go head-to-head in a big way to win the coveted trophy. Henson brings out Mary J. Blige during her “Fine” showstopper, while Howard channels Rick James perfectly for one of his performances. Check out the trailer below.

From Rebel Heart tracks leaking months in advance of the album’s official release date to Madge using Instagram, Snapchat and Grindr to premiere new content, social media has definitely defined Madonna’s latest era. This time around, the innovator that she is, the 56-year-old icon picked video broadcast app Meerkat to debut her latest music video.

A post apocalyptic world is the backstage for “Ghosttown.” While exploring the devastated city, Madonna bumps into Empire’s Terrence Howard who’s been hunting her down. It appears they’re about to battle but instead they dance seductively with each other. The clip ends with them walking hand in hand with a boy in between them.

It’s a bit random but the video is beautifully shot. Madonna looks pretty fantastic in it. Check out the clip below and weigh in afterward.

The trailer for an upcoming crime thriller called Dead Man Down is out, directed by Niels Arden Oplev who directed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. The film stars Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace (who played the lead in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and is set in New York City where a crime lord’s right-hand man is seduced by one of his boss’s victims, a woman seeking retribution.

Farrell is the one who plays Victor, the right hand man to an underground New York crime lord, played by the amazing Terrence Howard. Victor is spotted killing on the job by Beatrice and she reaches out to him to help her get revenge on what Terrance’s character did to her – “Blood demands blood,” they say in the trailer.

The film also stars Dominic Cooper and hits theatres on March 8. Check out the trailer below!

This movie looks epic and certainly one of a kind. Although it’s not really making fun of other movies, I get a Scary Movie vibe (and not just because Anna Faris is in it) from the type of raunchy comedy and the amount of celebrity cameos. The difference is I’d say that there are some unexpected Academy Award-winning people in this movie ensemble of endless celebrities and it looks jaw-dropping hilarious.

Movie 43 is an upcoming feature film that is composed of 25 short comedy segments. Take a hilarious director, add an amazing cast, mix in some twisted jokes, remove all boundaries, and then stand back… way back. In Movie 43, comedy is served steaming hot (literally) by director Peter Farrelly of The Farrelly Brothers (Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber) in one of the most shocking, original, and dangerous comedies ever made. Seriously, read the list of people in this movie…

Cast: Naomi Watts, Terrence Howard, Jason Sudeikis, Gerard Butler, Kristen Bell, Chloe Moretz, Josh Duhamel, Kate Winslet, Johnny Knoxville, Elizabeth Banks, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Richard Gere, Anna Faris, Justin Long, Liev Schreiber, Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Kieran Culkin, Leslie Bibb, Jimmy Bennett, Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Kate Bosworth, Patrick Warburton, Tony Shalhoub, Chris Pratt, Jack McBrayer, Aasif Mandvi, and Bobby Cannavale.

This is definitely not safe for work (NSFW), especially considering in the first scene of the trailer, Anna Faris asks Chris Pratt, “Will you poop on me?” The movie comes out January 25, 2013. Enjoy the trailer below!

As much as I love a good comedy, drama, or action movie, I far prefer a good thriller and this one looks like a goodie. The film is called The Company You Keep and is directed by Robert Redford who is also one of the main characters. It’s the first time he’s showing his on and off screen talents in a movie since back in 2007 with Lions For Lambs.

The thriller centers on a former Weather Underground activist (Robert Redford) who goes on the run from a journalist (Shia Labeouf) who has discovered his identity. This all happens after Sharon Solarz (Susan Surandon) is arrested 30 years after a murder she committed as part of the activist group. This is probably one of the most high caliber ensemble casts for a thriller I’ve ever seen, with so many Academy Award winners and/or nominees making up the group.

Other cast members not yet mentioned include Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Terrance Howard, Anna Kendrick, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Brit Marling, Brendan Gleeson, and more.

“Law & Order: LA” Overhaul In Casting Bloodbath

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Happy New Year and you’re fired. Unfortunately that’s what three regular cast members from “Law & Order: LA” heard when they returned back to work. In an effort to retool the spin-off, the producers have removed three players from the crime drama. Skeet Ulrich who plays Detective Winters, Regina Hall and Megan Boone who both play ADAs, have fought for justice for the last time. All are being written off the show.

So with Skeet leaving, who will replace him on the mean streets of LA? You know what they say, hire from within. Alfred Molina, who plays DA Ricardo Morlaes, will be walking the beat from now on. In an upcoming episode, his character will experience a tipping point as a prosecutor leading him to return to the police force. Terrence Howard, who plays the other DA on the show, will now appear in every episode. Up until now, Molina and Howard took turns prosecuting cases in each episode.

Executive producer Dick Wolf gave the following statement:

“We have the fortune of two world class actors on LOLA, and it was frustrating to have one on the bench every week. It would be like having Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as your quarterbacks, playing alternate games.”
