Will & Grace’ Kept Finding Fans, And Eric McCormack Is Amazed

While Will & Grace might have ended its initial network run 11 years ago, it never really stopped running. Thanks to syndication, cable, and streaming, the show’s run pretty much continuously for the past decade. In fact, Eric McCormack says he’s met plenty of fans who didn’t discover the show until after it aired its original “series finale,” and that amazes him.

New episodes of Will & Grace have arrived, and they’re airing Thursday nights at 9/8c on NBC.

‘Batman: The Enemy Within’ Launches Episode Two With ‘The Pact’

batmantheenemy“The Pact,” episode two of Telltale Games’ Batman: The Enemy Within, comes out October 3 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS and Android.

The just released trailer for “The Pact” shows that The Joker’s (Anthony Ingruber) right hand woman Harley Quinn continues her bat-wielding (no pun intended) villainy throughout Gotham’s crime ridden streets, and it’s up to the Dark Knight (Troy Baker) to take her down. An unidentified antagonist shows up on the tail end of the clip, and although most fans don’t need a teaser to whet their appetites, it’s still a welcome sight.

Although players’ choices from the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series spills over to the latest installment, Batman: The Enemy Within also functions as a standalone title. Fans of physical media can also purchases a season pass disc starting October 3.

windriver1

Wind River, an action thriller which features The Avengers actors Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner, hits Blu-ray and DVD November 14 via Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The picture continues the creative momentum of director/scribe Taylor Sheridan, as he previously penned the scripts for Sicario and last year’s Hell or High Water (which earned him an Oscar nod). Budgeted at $11 million, the feature amassed over $31 million at the domestic box office.

The plot centers on a rookie FBI agent (Olsen) who teams up with a game tracker (Renner) to investigate a girl’s killing at a Native American reservation. The Walking Dead vet Jon Bernthal, who previously worked on Sicario, co-stars in the flick.

Click on the media bar to hear Olsen discuss how the unforgiving environment of Wind River serves as an antagonist in the narrative:

Both disc versions come with deleted scenes and a behind the scenes video gallery.

Edie Falco Returns To ‘Law & Order’ Roots With ‘The Menendez Murders’

NUP_178871_3415.jpgBest known to TV fans for her work in The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie, Edie Falco takes on the role of defense attorney Leslie Abramson in Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. Back in the 1990s Falco also starred in four episodes of Law & Order as a lawyer.

The actress appreciates the no-nonsense and candid nature of Abramson (who is not going to watch the show). “She just did her job without complaining and without cutting corners.,” said Falco. “It’s very respectable particularly in this day and age. It’s so much easier to be lazy and kind of make sure everybody likes you and toe the line. She just did her job and she took care of the people she said she’d take care of. She showed up for the media and let people know how she felt about things. What was right and what was wrong – judgments she agreed with and which ones she didn’t. She was very vocal about it and I respect that.”

Click on the media bar to hear Falco talk about the compassion Abramson had for Lyle (Miles Gaston Villanueva) and Erik Menendez (Gus Halper).


Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders co-starring Heather Graham airs Tuesday nights on NBC (10/9c).
