SELFIE: John Cho on Playing the Romantic Leading Man
John Cho has been a familiar presence in television (SLEEPY HOLLOW, GO ON) and movies (the STAR TREK franchise, the HAROLD & KUMAR franchise), but with his new ABC comedy, SELFIE, he's taking on a new challenge with his character, Henry: the romantic leading man. I sat down with Cho to talk about SELFIE, social media, working with Karen Gillan, and more...
CASTLE’s Tamala Jones: What Happened to Castle is ‘Pretty Intense’
CASTLE's seventh season kicks off tonight, and when the show returns, Castle is still MIA after his car was run off the road...as he was on his way to marry Beckett. "I can tell you that it's going to pick up exactly where the season left [off]," CASTLE star Tamala Jones (Lanie) teased. "Castle didn't show up [to the wedding]. Kate Beckett is at the scene of the accident with Castle's car. I can pretty much tell you, exactly where we left, we're going to pick back up again. We're not going to take you on a merry-go-round. It's pretty intense what happened to Castle. I can't wait to see it." The hour, "Driven," takes its toll on all of the characters, and for Lanie, she's asked to do something she's never had to do before: investigate a live body.

‘The Simpsons Guy': Rich Appel and Steve Callaghan Tease the FAMILY GUY-THE SIMPSONS Crossover
FAMILY GUY and THE SIMPSONS' highly-anticipated crossover finally airs tonight, and while fans of the shows may have been waiting for this for years, there was a good reason to delay the Simpsons and Griffins from meeting: "You couldn't do a crossover like this until FAMILY GUY had become an institution itself," FAMILY GUY executive producer Rich Appel pointed out to a small group of reporters earlier this week. And, yes, while "The Simpsons Guy" is a crossover hour, this is, technically, an episode of FAMILY GUY. "It's an episode of FAMILY GUY," FAMILY GUY executive Steve Callaghan explained. "It's a premiere of FAMILY GUY. And [THE SIMPSONS producers] very kindly, and generously let us invade Springfield." In "invading" Springfield, the crossover expanded far beyond the two central families meeting -- a whole bunch of Springfield regulars pop up in "The Simpsons Guy."
THE SIMPSONS: Al Jean on the Premiere Death and the Show’s Future
THE SIMPSONS will lose a character in tonight's season 26 premiere, but showrunner Al Jean admitted on a recent conference call that the death "may have been a little overhyped." "That being said, I think it’s a wonderful episode and I think it works along the parameters we originally set out," Jean shared. "I think that people will really like it." (For the record, the death was exactly who I thought it would be, and I wasn't disappointed by how the show played it out.) And while animated series have a little bit of flexibility in terms of bending reality -- and FAMILY GUY infamously killed off and then revived Brian last season -- Jean promised the death that occurs in "Clown in the Dumps" will stick.
Series Premiere: Social Media superstar Eliza Dooley has 263,000 followers who hang on to her every post, tweet and selfie. But after a workplace mishap goes viral, she quickly realizes that being “instafamous” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and being friended is not the same as having actual friends. She enlists co-worker and marketing guru, Henry, to ‘rebrand’ her self-obsessed reputation and teach her how to connect with people in the real world, whether she ‘likes’ it or not.
