After six seasons, Stephen R. McQueen bid farewell to The Vampire Diaries on last night’s episode. The CW supernatural series definitely lost one of its hottest pieces of man candy. The 26-year-old stud has played Jeremy Gilbert since the show’s premiere.
In a short but sweet video, McQueen says goodbye to his fans and thanks them for all their support. If you’re fan of the series and of Stephen, check out the brief clip below.
With Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) missing in action, Starling City is in need of a hero. Arsenal (Colton Haynes) and Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) could definitely use the help.
Brandon Routh trades in his Superman blue tights in for a wicked new costume. On the February 25 episode of Arrow, his character Ray Palmer begins his journey as The Atom.
When Arrow returns to Starling, things will definitely get stickier for Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) since she has feelings for both crime fighters. Check out Routh suiting up as the superhero below and weigh in afterward.
CW executives were in a giving mood today. The network gave full season pickups for all three of their freshman series. Personally, I sampled all of them but gave each up after only a couple of episodes. None really captured me. I was hoping for so much more from The Tomorrow People. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the network’s midseason offerings, The 100 or Star-Crossed, are much better.
While The Originals pickup isn’t surprising given it’s doing the best out of the lot, Reign’s order is somewhat shocking. I thought for sure it was going to get beheaded. It’s so awful creatively and the lowest-performing out of the bunch.
Not sure how many Nikita fans there are here, but hopefully some of you find this post of interest.
I’ve been a fan of the CW series since the beginning. Even though it was always ratings-challenged, I’m glad the network stuck with it for several seasons. Even more appreciative that instead of making the writers quickly craft a series finale last year, they gave them a shortened fourth season (six episodes) to wrap things up properly. They’re also bringing in Judd Nelson for the spy series’ swan song. The final countdown begins November 22 with the finale airing December 27. At least they’ll be something new to watch during the repeat-heavy holiday season.
When the show returns, things don’t look great for our favorite heroine. Not only is Nikita trying to clear her name after being framed for the President’s assassination, but life on the homefront sucks as well. Looks like Mikita is on the rocks. In the first look at the final season, Michael declares he’s done fighting for them. Ouch. Check out the promo below.
It’s the moment Sex and the City fans have been jonesing for ever since The Carrie Diaries premiered midseason last year. At long last, the moment is here. The CW prequel finally introduces one of Carrie’s lifelong pals.
Who better for young Carrie to meet first than the one and only Samantha Jones. The younger version is portrayed by Lindsey Gort. It’s impossible to match the brilliance of Kim Cattrall, but based on first impression, Gort does a decent job of capturing the iconic character. She definitely has big Manolo pumps to fill. Cattrall was such a pro with her comedic skills that Samantha never became a ridiculous caricature.
The young Sam Jones makes her debut on the second season premiere titled, “Win Some, Lose Some,” on October 25th. After a series of surprising events, Carrie meets one of the greatest loves of her life while spending the summer in Manhattan living with Walt (Brendan Dooling). Check out the Samantha preview below.
We’re less than a week away from the second season premiere of Arrow? Can you feel the excitement? I can, but I’d rather feel Stephen Amell’s abs. Can I get an amen? The CW released another promo with Amell’s chiseled six pack front and center. They really know how to cater to their demo, don’t they?
“With great power, comes great abs,” Emily Bett Rickards explains. I’m so glad the powers-that-be promoted her character Felicity to series regular this season. Besides all the shirtless scenes of Stephen, she was the best thing about the superhero show. Watch Felicity travel to Lian Yu below and encounter a very sweaty Oliver Queen. Lucky girl.
When Arrow debuted last season, Stephen Amell carried the weight of the show on his muscular shoulders on his own. For the show’s sophomore year, the network is alleviating the pressure on Amell and spreading the shirtless promotional duties to the other male actors on the superhero show.
Much like what Lionsgate did when they released the Capital Portraits for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The CW debuted their new batch of promo pics on several media outlets. Amell’s photo popped up on TVLine.com, while Manu Bennett appeared on Acccess Hollywood. Both Colton Haynes and David Ramsey showed off their hard work at the gym over at E! networks.
Check out the boys in all their topless glory below. Be sure to weigh in afterward on who has a career with the Chippendales should their day job fall through.
That’s just one of the super campy lines in the latest promo clip for Arrow‘s second season. My personal favorite is, “When the hood is up, you better pray.” It’s so cheesy, it’s amazing. That’s one of the reasons why I love this superhero series. It doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The video begins with dramatic voiceovers by the core cast. Each lament about what they’ve lost. Oliver (Stephen Amell) lost his best friend, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) lost her heart, while my favorite on the show, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) lost her innocence. The video then segues into footage from the upcoming season including the return of China White (Kelly Hu).
In other Arrow-related news, Spartacus actress Cynthia Addai-Robinson has been added to the roster. She’ll play Waller, an agent of the evil organization A.R.G.U.S.. She’s the latest to join the ever-growing universe. Black Canary (Caity Loitz), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), Sin (Bex Taylor-Klaus) and Isobel Rochev (Summer Glau) are just a few joining the sophomore season. No word on who’ll play Flash as of yet. Check out the newly-released promo below which uses Hanni El Khatib’s “Skinny Little Girl” as the soundtrack.
