There’s a good reason why The Big Bang Theory has been television’s most successful comedy for several seasons: The show’s well-written scripts are acted out by one of the most talented ensemble casts in the business. Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj Koothrappali, says it’s amazing to watch his fellow cast members perform — especially scenes featuring Big Bang’s power couple, Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik).

The Big Bang Theory for its 11th season Monday, September 25 on CBS.

Samuel L. JacksonOnce he established himself in Hollywood, Samuel L. Jackson found himself in an enviable position: He could choose whatever projects he wanted. For some actors, that can be a blessing; for others, a curse. Jackson, however, has used his power of choice very wisely. He’s acted in movies that have satisfied him artistically, and he’s also been in plenty of career-sustaining box office hits. And sometimes, they’ve been both at once! But from his films with Quentin Tarantino to the Star Wars franchise, Jackson has been very pleased with the decisions he’s made. (Click on the media bar to hear Samuel L. Jackson)

Jackson’s latest movie, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, is playing in theaters now.

American AssassinAlthough the heart of American Assassin’s centers on vengeful CIA agent Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), the movie is a cut above the standard CIA thriller.

Michael Keaton co-stars as Stan Hurley, a CIA veteran whose tough as nails mentoring has had a profound effect on both Mitch and their current target, a former operative gone rogue named Ghost (Taylor Kitsch). Keaton credits director Michael Cuesta and the film’s writers (Edward Zwick is among the credited scribes) for bringing a level of depth to the proceedings.

“He created nuance,” said Keaton on working with Cuesta. “The mercenary idea is just a great idea - people who don’t have a philosophical or religious stake in things. It just makes it more interesting. I thought (the filmmakers) really did a good job of making it more complicated, more interesting, and not as cliched.”

Click on the media bar to hear Taylor Kitsch discuss Ghost’s motivation within the narrative and how Ghost viewed Stan as a father figure:

American Assassin opens nationwide September 15.

Ever since Cheers became one of TV’s top-rated shows in the ’80s, Ted Danson has been a fixture on the small screen. He’s found steady work on hit series like Becker, Damages, and C.S.I., and we always look forward to his frequent appearances on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Right now, his career is in another good place, as he’s about to begin Season 2 of his NBC comedy, The Good Place. And even though he’s now 69 years old, he has no interest in retiring from TV, especially since he’s been fortunate enough to work on so many quality projects. (Click on the media bar to hear Ted Danson)

The Good Place starts its second season Wednesday, September 20 on NBC.

Best known for his work on the gritty Western series Hell on Wheels, Anson Mount takes on one of Marvel’s most powerful beings with Marvel’s Inhumans. Since Black Bolt’s (Mount) lack of communication lies in his powerful voice (one scream from Black Bolt can level everything around him), Mount’s physicality is absolutely important in bringing the character to life.

Mount must also make his interactions with the bulldog like being Lockjaw believable. “I’ve never worked around so many imaginary elements, and it’s a skill that you develop,” said Mount. “You just have to be cognizant of certain things, particularly like, if Lockjaw isn’t actually here and my point of focus isn’t where he’s supposed to be, but it’s not the back wall, you’re going to see that, and it doesn’t come off. But it was a fun obstacle. There were a lot of fun obstacles with this role.”

Click on the media bar below to hear Mount talk about how sending videos to co-star Serinda Swan (Medusa) helped develop their chemistry on Marvel’s Inhumans:



Marvel’s Inhumans premieres September 29 on ABC (10 pm et/pt).

Mark HamillSince Star Wars: The Force Awakens exceeded most people’s expectations, the bar has been set pretty high for the next chapter in the series. Based on the trailer and some of the footage we’ve seen, though, it looks like Star Wars: The Last Jedi has plenty of potential. Since so little is known about The Last Jedi, we asked Mark Hamill — who will see much more screen time as Luke Skywalker in the new movie (we promise!) — if he could shed any light on what we’ll be seeing. According to Hamill, we should prepare for a few surprises.


Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15.

hiddendragon1

Hidden Dragon Legend, an action platforming game that is set in ancient China, hits PlayStation 4 September 19 and Steam later this year. The title is part of the Oasis Games lineup that will be shown at Gamescon along with Light Tracer and Fringe Wars.

In Hidden Dragon Legend gamers will hack and slash their way to battle intimidating foes and bosses as they attempt to take a powerful object called the Dragon Cauldron. Though this item grants inhuman powers, it renders the respective warrior a slave to an evil faction, and gamers go on a journey of revenge to settle the score and defeat their supposed masters.

The trailer to Hidden Dragon Legend features top notch graphics and what looks to be an epic boss fight. Watching a warrior run through a tree lined forest is also eye catching. Oasis Games is also claiming its title has “Metroidvnia-style” puzzles (channeling an instant classic is refreshingly heady in my opinion) and an immersive skill tree for customization. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think of Hidden Dragon Legend!
