What happened when Lucifer (Tom Ellis) needed a vacation from Hell? Well, in Fox’s new drama, LUCIFER, he went to Los Angeles, opened a bar, and avoided the call to return.
But when an acquaintance of Lucifer’s gets killed he finds himself drawn into the investigation to find her killer. And with that, he has a new calling, of sorts: thanks to his uncanny ability to draw out secrets — and his newfound fascination with Chloe, a detective who is immune to his ways — he decides to consult with the LAPD.
“For me, we were starting at a point where it was a character that, yes, everyone knows, but it could be a different world, at the beginning of a redemption story,” Ellis told reporters on the show’s Vancouver set (in the video below). “And this was like the ultimate redemption story; the most irredeemable character, how could he find redemption? And so that was my take on it.”
Though the devil could be a super serious character, “I just wanted it to be a fun take on it,” he continued. “And he likes to have fun with people. And that was a huge selling point for me, and a huge kind of thing I tapped into, really: I didn’t want to be Mr. Evil.”
Check out more from Ellis in the video below, as he discuses playing a recognizable figure, how the show is handling its comic origin, and more…
Comments Off on THE 100’s Eliza Taylor: Clarke is ‘Pretty Messed Up’ When Season 3 Kicks Off
THE 100’s Clarke (Eliza Taylor) has endured a lot during her time on the ground, but the decision to sacrifice the people of Mount Weather to save the people she cares about weighs heavily on her.
“She’s pretty messed up over Mount Weather,” Taylor told reporters on the show’s Vancouver set in the video below. “She obviously left because she wasn’t able to face her demons, wasn’t able to deal with what she’s done. So she’s in a state of pure survival mode. She’s just out in the woods. It’s all about hunting and finding somewhere dry to sleep. Just trying to survive.”
But what will it take for Clarke to forgive herself? “It’s going to be a long and hard journey,” she said. “She’s…in a pretty dark place; I think it’s going to take a lot of time for her to kind forgive herself and for other people to forgive her as well.”

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW kicks off tonight on The CW, and many of the faces taking center stage are familiar to fans of ARROW and THE FLASH: Sara/White Canary (Caity Lotz); Ray/Atom (Brandon Routh); Stein (Victor Garber) and Jax (Franz Drameh), AKA Firestorm; Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller); Mick/Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell); Kendra/Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée); Carter/Hawkman (Falk Hentschel); and baddie Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).

Comments Off on SECOND CHANCE: Robert Kazinsky Previews the New Fox Drama
We’re supposed to have one life to live, but for SECOND CHANCE’s Jimmy Pritchard, things take a twist: when the 75-year-old is killed during a home invasion at his son’s home — and his death is staged as a suicide — he’s revived in a new, young body by mysterious twins.
On the show’s Vancouver set, SECOND CHANCE star Robert Kazinsky (young Jimmy) spoke with reporters about what viewers will see on the series…
PERSON OF INTEREST fantastic fourth season (which is, finally, streaming on Netflix) dove deeper into the dueling artificial intelligences_, but one of the finest hours was decidedly human: “Terra Incognita,” as a dying Reese (Jim Caviezel) hallucinated a do-over with Carter (Taraji P. Henson).
“This felt like a great way to put those characters back together again, and get the opportunity for them to have a last goodbye, from their perspective,” PERSON OF INTEREST creator Jonathan Nolan said at the time.
Caviezel pointed to the hour as a particularly important one for Reese. “Last year, during the scene in the car with Carter where he doesn’t realize he has all these protective things around him — he was devastated by the loss,” he shared late last year on the set of the show’s upcoming fifth season. “He was in love with her. But because he’s so good — like special operators can do, they can separate heart and mind. They can compartmentalized so much that when he lost Carter, he never realized that he loved her. And very deeply. That loss, he’ll never get that back. In human behavior, he starts to play a new kind tape in his head, that this is what really happened, when it didn’t happen that way. Now, it gives him a purpose [going forward].”

The people behind shows produced for streaming services find their product being increasingly being released in a binge format, there has been one unexpected relief: the writers can assume that people will be watching these episodes in order — and often in a short amount of time.
“As a writer and a writing staff, [we’re] thinking about what’s going to happen now that people are going to watch these shows back-to-back,” HAND OF GOD creator Ben Watkins explained. “And if they do it like I do, they may do two or three [episodes] at a time. I don’t usually do more than three at a time, but even with that, you get a certain momentum watching, and you don’t need as much explaining [with the storytelling].”
I spoke with Watkins about creating a show in a binge-watching culture, why he didn’t want to “hold the audience’s hand in terms of who was the protagonist,” and those season finale shockers (though spoilers will be clearly marked if you haven’t finished season 1…
With Darkness (and Amara) loose in the world, the Winchester brothers are in for quite the fight on SUPERNATURAL. But for the first time in seasons, the duo is actually working in tandem from the start.
“They’re essentially not inflicted with anything, they’re both intact; granted they’re scarred and bruised from a life of hunting and fighting,” Jensen Ackles (Dean) told reporters in the video below. “But they’re not fighting for each other anymore, they’re fighting a common target.”
“They’re fighting alongside each other,” Jared Padalecki (Sam) added.
“They’re fighting alongside each other, and it’s been a while since we’ve seen that,” Ackles continued. “I’m really excited about that dynamic, back together. That unit that’s back together, as opposed to previous seasons when Dean had the mark, and Sam was doing things behind his back…having those motivations over the past several seasons, and now having that gone…it’s two brothers in a car, driving down a highway, with a common goal and common purpose.”
