dakota Daulby

Returning for its fourth season, FALLING SKIES quickly scatters its heroes and shows how tricky life can be to survive when each of them are on their own. The young Mason son, Matt (Maxim Knight) finds himself caught up in a special Espheni reeducation center. With the world as he knows it long gone, it was probably the last thing he ever expected: to find himself back in school. But like anything with the Espheni, there is always a darker side to seemingly good intentions. The reeducation center is not to really educate in the broader sense, but really to reprogram the surviving children to be compliant members of the Espheni society.

In an exclusive interview, newcomer Dakota Daulby talked about his pivotal role as a teacher inside the reeducation center and the challenges with such a tricky role. [Read more…]

There is no more ferocious battle for a man’s heart than when torn between his loyalty for his people and the woman he loves. Time and time again, Lincoln (Ricky Whittle) has chosen his beloved, but at what cost.

SING YOUR FACE OFF: John Barrowman Previews His New ABC Singing Show With a Twist

Sing-Your-Face-Off-barrowman

Just when television audiences thought they had seen it all, ABC came up with a new kind of singing competition series — one where the contestants are celebrities who volunteered to be transformed to look just like one of their favorite icons. Anyone can give it their best shot at singing like someone they admire, but not everyone can pull off the feat of looking like their idols at the same time. So in an era where what you look like on stage is just as important as how you sound, this may be the ultimate challenge for performers looking to up their game.

In an exclusive interview, star John Barrowman (ARROW, DOCTOR WHO) talked about the fun of working on such an unusual entertainment show and who he would love to be transformed into if ever given the chance. [Read more…]

Not quite able to quite contain his infectious glee, J.R. Lemon is clearly pleased with his role in the new NBC drama series THE NIGHT SHIFT.

Kenny is also a notorious prankster, which is just another layer of fun for J.R. Getting to combine all these qualities into one character is like a dream come true.

The-Night-Shift-NBC-image-the-night-shift-nbc-36400775-1280-727

In the new NBC drama series THE NIGHT SHIFT, extraordinary measures are taken to save lives. But even when it is to save a life, someone has to be accountable for the cost to do it. So there is an inherent tension in running an E.R. where doctors will do anything to help their patients, but some have to think about the red-tape and financial burden that it carries. It’s a tough-love relationship that must be enforced or hospitals would be forced to close their doors.

At San Antonio Memorial Hospital, that pivotal role is offered to Dr. Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint). Unfortunately, that role also comes with a more personal conflict, her ex-boyfriend T.C. Callahan (Eoin Macken) will be working directly under her. But as Jordan and T.C. discover, love never quite dies, it just gets buried for awhile. Yet those reawakened feelings are tested as Jordan knows that no matter how much she admires T.C., she is terrified by his approach to saving lives as he does not think twice about the cost to do it.

THE NIGHT SHIFT is also not just a medical drama confined to the hospital. It stretches and encompasses a world where trauma demands they go into the field, which means rushing to plane crashes, helicopter accidents, auto accidents, dealing with tornadoes, hunting accidents and the wilds of Texas where boar roam freely. THE NIGHT SHIFT explores what it takes to be a trauma surgeon in and out of the hospital and the unique trials and challenges that presents.

In a fun joint interview co-stars Jill, Eoin and J.R. hilariously talked about about the craziness of working together on THE NIGHT SHIFT: [Read more…]
