_rbdave73dj1_hires216Based on the popular DC Comic Book character introduced in THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING (1984) and promoted to lead in the HELLBLAZER series (1988), CONSTANTINE debuts tonight on NBC and centers on a street-wise ’supernatural advisor’ with a keen sense of cynical snark, an ability to use his wits to thwart evil and a commitment to defending humanity against the dark forces from beyond.

While considered by many to be a ’superhero’, CONSTANTINE is a rarity in that he doesn’t wear a traditional costume or possess any ’superpowers.’

But rather than try to describe him ourselves we figured we’d deliver it straight from the sorcerer’s mouth. We recently sat down with Welsh actor and series star MATT RYAN who gave us his take on his character of CONSTANTINE.

CONSTANTINE debuts tonight on NBC.

_rbdave73dj1_hires215In theaters now and riding high at the top of the box-office charts, FURY is a World War II action/adventure set during the last days of the war and centered on a (mostly) hardened tank crew moving into Nazi territory for one final hurrah. Written and directed by DAVID AYER, the stellar cast includes SHIA LaBEOUF, LOGAN LERMAN, JON BERNTHAL, MICHAEL PENA, JASON ISAACS, JIM PARRACK and BRAD WILLIAM HENKE.

In a performance some are calling a ‘revelation’, LOGAN LERMAN is a stand-out as the fresh-faced, naive, newbie who puts the crew at risk. Known for his work in the short-lived television series JACK & BOBBY as well as such films as the PERCY JACKSON series and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, LERMAN has pretty much grown up in front of an audience.

During his recent publicity tour to promote FURY, LERMAN talked about the film and described his character in it.

FURY is in theaters now.

_rbdave73dj1_hires213Airing tonight on PBS, CLEAN is the first episode in a new six-part series titled HOW WE GOT TO NOW. Based on the popular best-selling book by STEVEN JOHNSON, each episode will concentrate on a technological innovation and what its done for us as a civilization. In CLEAN, the show dips back in time to when urban waste was handled in much different way than it is now and then forwards to the present and what JOHNSON refers to as the ‘ultra clean generation’.

This episode will be followed by TIME (also being broadcast tonight), in which the au thor/host takes a look at the effect time has on modern tech devices. Other episodes to follow will deal with such subjects as COLD, SOUND, LIGHT and GLASS.

Addressing reporters at a Television Critics Association press conference to promote the series, host STEVEN JOHNSON discussed what the premise of the show is. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

_rbdave73dj1_hires212Arguably one of the best sitcom pilots of the current season, NBC’s MARRY ME is as much about casting as it is about writing. A romantic comedy created by DAVID CASPE (HAPPY ENDINGS), the charismatic cast includes CASEY WILSON (Caspe’s real-life spouse), KEN MARINO, SARAH WRIGHT, JOHN GEMBERLING, TIM MEADOWS, DAN BUCATINSKY and JoBETH WILLIAMS. Hugely entertaining, the pilot shows a boat-load of promise and we’re hoping the series can live up to it.

We recently sat down with MARRY ME stars KEN MARINO and CASEY WILSON who talked about the basic premise of the show.


MARRY ME premieres tonight on NBC.

_rbdave73dj1_hires211Returning tonight for its second season, CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST will air back-to-back episodes on USA. The ‘real-life’ family comedy follows the eccentric (but almost always entertaining) exploits of Atlanta self-made multimillionaire Todd Chrisley, his wife Julie and their kids: Lindsie, Kyle, Chase, Savannah and Grayson.

Egotistical beyond belief and over-the-top to a fault, Todd Chrisley likes to think he rules his family like his business but, more often than not, it’s with a velvet-gloved iron fist. And, despite seeming scripted at times, the series is genuinely entertaining and funny.

We recently sat down with Todd, Julie, Chase and Savannah who explained what to expect from the show, offered up some parenting theories and talked about family values.

Season two of CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST debuts tonight on USA.

gotham_ver41Making its debut tonight on The CW, JANE THE VIRGIN is the American adaptation of a Venezuelan telenovela centered on a devout young Latina dealing with the many ramifications of being suddenly pregnant after being accidentally artificially inseminated. A pleasant mix of family comedy and soap-opera melodrama, the show manages to be entertaining and engaging despite (or maybe because of) its myriad of twists and sub-plots.

The terrific cast includes GINA RODRIGUEZ, IVONNE COLL, ANDREA NAVEDO, CAMILLE COLLARD, ANTHONY MENDEZ and BRET DIER.
A familiar face to fans of the indie film FILLY BROWN, GINA RODRIGUEZ was named by The Hollywood Reporter as ‘the next big thing’ in 2012 but has taken her time in choosing to commit to series television (even turning down a starring role in the hit series DEVIOUS MAIDS). During a recent Television Critics Association press conference to promote JANE THE VIRGIN, RODRIGUEZ explained to reporters what she was waiting for. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)


JANE THE VIRGIN premieres tonight on The CW.

gotham_ver4Airing tonight on Fox, the fourth episode of the new hit series GOTHAM takes viewers even further into what is becoming the grand-daddy of comic book villain origin stories. Going behind the scenes to discover what made such iconic (at least to the fanboys) bad-guys as The Penguin, The Riddler and Catwoman the people they became, GOTHAM is an epic piece of TV storytelling.

Created expressly for the series, Fish Mooney is a formidable villain whose iron-fist hold over the Gotham City theater district is just a front for her underhanded (and often very violent) mob activities. Played by JADA PINKETT-SMITH with cold-as-ice resolve, FISH MOONEY is a pretty cool addition to the DC Comics universe.

An award winning actress and musician, PINKETT-SMITH is the wife of international box-office favorite WILL SMITH and the mother of JADEN (critically acclaimed for his performance in the film THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS) and WILLOW (a popular singer/songwriter). In addition to that, she and her husband founded the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, a charity focused on inner-city youth.

During a recent interview to promote the series, PINKETT-SMITH talked about how GOTHAM fit into her plans for the family business.

GOTHAM airs tonight on Fox.

_rbolivia68dj1_hires12Now playing in select theaters, ST. VINCENT is a quirky, off-beat comedy revolving around a single mom forced by circumstance to entrust the care of her tween son to a misanthropic neighbor whose interests mostly include alcohol, prostitutes and gambling. BILL MURRAY plays the titular St. Vincent de Van Nuys, a cranky war vet who becomes mentor to the bullied 12-year-old (JAEDEN LIEBERHER) and MELISSA McCARTHY takes on the role of the beleaguered mom.

Known in movies primarily for her over-the-top portrayals of lower-class, less-than-tidy characters in such films as TAMMY and BRIDESMAIDS, MELISSA McCARTHY dials it down a bit here and turns in a brilliant performance. During her recent publicity push for the film, she talked about changing it up for this one.
