How Pierce Brosnan Became The Man Of ‘Steele’

Usually, the difference between an actor and a successful actor is one big break. For Pierce Brosnan, that break was Remington Steele.  Before he was James Bond or had any kind of movie career, he starred with Stephanie Zimbalist in the romantic comedy spy series, which ran for five seasons on NBC back in the ’80s. And even though three decades have passed since the show went off the air, Brosnan told us it still holds a very special place in his heart. (Click on the media bar below to hear Pierce Brosnan)

Pierce Brosnan is back on TV, starring in the AMC drama The Son, which airs Saturday nights on AMC.

Briga Heelan Has “Great News” Behind Andrea Martin Collaboration

NUP_174983_0332.JPG

Tracey Wigfield, an Emmy award winning writer for 30 Rock, is the creator behind Great News, a workplace comedy that’s set on a national cable news show called “The Breakdown.” Partly inspired by Wigfield’s relationship with her mother, the comedy centers on Katie (Briga Heelan), an ambitious but creatively frustrated news producer whose mother Carol (Andrea Martin) lands an internship at the program. Nicole Richie and John Michael Higgins serve as the co-hosts of “The Breakdown.”

During our interview with Heelan, the actress talked about her immediate bond with Martin. “I didn’t meet her until we started shooting,” said Heelan. “We just locked in real fast. We got each other’s  sense of humor very quickly and she makes me feel so comfortable and safe. I kind of gravitate to her like she is my mom in real life. She’s hysterical and the most fun to work with. It was pretty easy from the beginning with her.”

In the video below, Heelan elaborates on the mother and daughter dynamic of Great News:

Great News, co-starring Horatio Sanz and Adam Campbell, premieres on NBC April 25 (9/8c).

‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series’ Goes Hard In May

guardians55

As a member of Generation X, gaming has always been about placing a disc into whatever console I was playing. The first of five episodes of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is now available for digital download, but I have my eyes set on the hard copy release of the game. A “Season Pass Disc” hits retailers across North America May 2nd, with an international release set for May 5th.

With the disc, gamers will own “Episode One: Tangled Up in Blue,” with the remaining four installments available via online updates later this year. The title is available on Xbox One, Windows PC, Mac, iOS (Apple Store), and Android (Google Play).

The game’s voice acting ensemble includes Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, Hart of Dixie) as Star-Lord, Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless) as Gamora, Nolan North (Pretty Little Liars) as Rocket, Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) as Drax, and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us) as Groot.

Check out the launch trailer, which has our intrepid and eccentric super team getting ready to take on Thanos, below and tell us what you think!

Mark Hamill Always Had High Hopes For ‘Star Wars’

700033962_gm_5985_33cdbcae031fc1815be0d86ba0d04b42While many people are excited about the future of Star Wars, with the new trailer for The Last Jedi having just been released, some are feeling nostalgic about the original.  Believe it or not, the movie we now know as Episode IV celebrates its 40th birthday next month.  After the release of the second sequel, Return of the Jedi, in 1983, most people thought the Star Wars series would be a thing of the past.  (And when the VHS tapes — remember those? — were marketed as the Star Wars Trilogy, that seemed to confirm there would only be three films.  Or so we thought.)  But here we are in 2017, and the franchise is still going strong, with five additional movies and at least three more on the way.  (That doesn’t even count the animated adventures!)  The man who played Luke Skywalker isn’t surprised by the series’ continued success, though; Mark Hamill has always thought the force was with Star Wars. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mark Hamill)

After his brief appearance in The Force Awakens, we’ll definitely see more of Hamill — and Luke Skywalker — when Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15.
