Red Carpet Redux: The Cast of THE BRIDGE Teases Season 2

the bridge season 2

FX’s tense drama THE BRIDGE returns for its second season with the continuing saga of Detectives Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) as they seek to stop the killing of young woman in Juarez, Mexico, whether it be by one man “El Diablo” or a coordinated culture of police corruption and depravity amongst a select few who view these girls as disposable commodities. Also left unresolved from the first season is whether Marco will actually go forward on his vendetta against the man who killed his son.

Simultaneously, there is the fates of Charlotte Millwright (Annabeth Gish) and her faithful farm hand Cesar (Alejandro Patino), who inherited a tunnel between the U.S. and Mexico, which Fausto Galvin (Ramon Franco), the Mexican drug cartel leader, considers his business investment and property for his exclusive use in smuggling drugs over the border. But there may be a bit of a tug of war for that business opportunity with the appearance of Monte P. Flagman (Lyle Lovett) who may have his own designs on the tunnel and the drug enterprise.

Also pursuing life on the sidelines and looking for an angle to exploit to further their careers are Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard) and Adrianna Mendez (Emily Rios), who are certain that there is a much bigger story to be uncovered with the disappearing girls of Juarez.

With so many lives unknowingly intertwined, yet all following the same threads to perhaps the same end point, things are about to get a lot more heated and intense and dangerous for everyone.

During a special premiere, the cast of THE BRIDGE took a few minutes to preview where their varied characters’ stories pick back up as well as introducing a few new characters who join the fight against drug trafficking and human slavery in both El Paso and Juarez, Mexico. [Read more…]

HEMLOCK GROVE Scoop: Landon Liboiron Talks The Season 2 Conflict Between Peter and Roman

hemlock-grove-landon-liboiron

It was always too good to be true. Can a werewolf and a vampire ever really be friends? Yet HEMLOCK GROVE had the audacity to propose that they could. Season 1 introduced Peter Romancek (Landon Liboiron), a gypsy werewolf, who had just moved to the seemingly sleepy town of Hemlock Grove where the Godfrey family control the town through their obscene wealth and their desire to keep a distance from the townsfolk. But the Godfrey’s had many secrets to conceal, only one of which was that its matriarch Olivia Godfrey (Famke Janssen) was an upir. Her son Roman (Bill Skarsgard) had not yet transformed and was unaware of his bloody ancestry, but was inexplicably drawn to Peter. Roman perhaps sensed, as Peter sensed about Roman, that there was an otherworld quality to Peter.

So Season 1 was a dance of mutual interest and aligned interests as Peter and Roman struck up a friendship and set out to track down a beast attacking the residents of Hemlock Grove. But Season 1 ended in a bloody and deadly finale as the beast was killed and Roman’s cousin, Letha (Penelope Mitchell) died as well. Both Peter and Roman were tormented by the secrets uncovered and the deaths that surrounded them. It pushed Peter to leave town and Roman to finally confront his mother about their darkest nature.

In a press interview from the set, star Landon Liboiron talked about why Peter returns to Hemlock Grove and whether or not there is hope that Peter and Roman could ever be friends again. [Read more…]

REIGN Post-Mortem: Showrunner Laurie McCarthy and Megan Follows Reflect on the Risky Season 1 Finale and Preview What’s Next in Season 2

Reign

Hot on the heels of its successful first season, REIGN went out in jaw-dropping style last week when it killed off the King of France (Alan Van Sprang). It also dared to lock the next king right out of the castle gates due to the looming threat of plague spreading through the local villages. So Season 2 of REIGN is going to be a tricky road as Mary (Adalaide Kane), Queen of Scots and now Queen of France may have to rule in her husband’s absence and keep her mother-in-law, Catherine de Medici (Megan Follows) at bay and also making a play for the throne.

As this week’s CBS Summer Soiree event, showrunner and executive producer Laurie McCarthy and star Megan Follows talked exclusively about the killer Season 1 finale and where the show may be heading in its upcoming second season. [Read more…]

ARROW Scoop: EP Marc Guggenheim Previews the Season 2 Finale and What Other Deaths Lie Ahead

Arrow2-e1366746033717

In last week’s episode “Streets of Fire,” Starling City was literally under siege by Slade Wilson’s (Manu Bennett) Mirakuru Army. The chaos and disorder was just the beginning. Anyone and everyone was a target. It did not matter who it was. The Mirakuru infected were no longer men with the ability to reason. They just murdered everyone who happened to be in their path. Starling City’s newest mayor Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro) was not even safe as he took a sword to the chest by Ravager aka Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) — as if we could even call her human anymore. The District Attorney was added to the body of the fallen before anyone could blink. Slade’s humanity is highly in doubt as he merely laughed with maniacal glee at the death and destruction his army was raining down upon the city that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) held so dear.

As also seen, everyone of Oliver’s team and those who align with him are targets. Having already taken the life of Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson), Slade has vowed to take at least one more life — the second person Oliver holds most dear. Given that Slade had dispatched one of his nameless/faceless men to hunt down Thea Queen (Willa Holland) and another to the police precinct where Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and her father Detective Lance (Paul Blackthorne) were holed up, that only leaves two possible candidates of who is the person Oliver holds most dear: Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). Just who will be the lucky lady? That is what everyone is holding their breaths over for this week’s momentous Season 2 finale.

In a recent exclusive interview, executive producer Marc Guggenheim talked about what tense alliances lie ahead in the finale and whether Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) will rise from the dead one last time to take a stand to protect his daughter, Thea. [Read more…]

ORPHAN BLACK Redux: Who’s Your Daddy?

OrphanBlack_Pair_9_FN

The one question no one thought to really focus on in Season 1 of ORPHAN BLACK was: who’s Kira’s (Skyler Wexler) father? In last week’s episode “Mingling Its Own Nature With It,” that question was answer in a rather surprising fashion. Sarah (Tatiana Maslany), Kira and Felix (Jordan Gavaris) were on their way out of town and decided to spend the night at an empty farmhouse, when the owner unexpectedly returned. With Kira’s innocent question: “Are you my daddy?” the ORPHAN BLACK world exploded.

Not only did Kira finally get to meet her father, fans and viewers did too. Apparently Cal (Michael Huisman) was one of Sarah’s marks from her good ole days of grifting. But after just one month together, Sarah high-tailed it with $10,000 of his money and he has not seen her since. So imagine his surprise when she shows up 8 years later with a daughter in tow, which she claims is likely his.

Somehow the question of Kira’s paternity seemed irrelevant last season with Kira was safely tucked away with Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) while the events of “clone club” and the Prolethians and the Neolutionists unfolded. But after it was discovered that Kira’s life was on the line, a close call with a near abduction by the Prolethians, and with Mrs. S no longer to be trusted as Kira’s guardian, Sarah turned to her one last resort – Kira’s father.
