Season 6 of 'Dexter' is dripping with fresh blood. And by that we mean there are a lot of new additions to the cast. Showtime released a promo that introduces us to all of the new characters.

Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos join the cast as this season's villains. Olmos plays a twisted religion professor, Professor Gellar, and Hanks plays his student, Travis. Together, they conspire to carry out what they consider to be divinely-justified murders.

Rapper and actor Mos Def is also joining the cast, playing a character named Brother Sam. Dexter initially starts tracking him as a potential victim, but soon discovers he's rehabilitated himself with religion.

Check out more new character descriptions, and the 'Dexter' promo, after the jump.

by Chris Harnick, posted May 13th 2011 11:30AM
Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey is flexing her muscles in an odd way. The exiting queen of daytime talk shows has gotten an NBA game rescheduled. Why? Because she's filming one of her final shows at the United Center, the arena where the Chicago Bulls were supposed to play the Miami Heat.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the game was supposed to take place on Tuesday, but because of Winfrey's shoot it has been postponed until Sunday.

"We just got the e-mail saying we were supposed to start next Tuesday, but Oprah has it then," Charles Barkley said on ESPN Radio. "So they said, well let's do it Monday. Oprah is having one of her last shows, so she's got the United Center locked up.

"They're going to set up Monday and tape her show Tuesday. So they just sent out an e-mail and said prepare to go to Chicago and start Game 1 Sunday afternoon," he said. "They're going to move it up three days, for Oprah."

The game is the first of NBA's Eastern Conference Finals.

Winfrey reportedly wants to give Maria Shriver her own show. According to RadarOnline.com, Shriver is said to have been approached by Winfrey earlier this year, but now that Shriver has separated from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Winfrey is pursuing Shriver harder.

Aimee Garcia Breaks Finger While Shooting 'Trauma' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 15th 2010 4:00PM
While shooting 'Trauma,' actress Aimee Garcia threw herself into a fight scene and broke her finger, she said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). But, fortunately, her work on the NBC show about first responders enabled her to treat the injury herself.

"This happened on set," Garcia said, showing her broken finger to Natalie Morales. "I was doing a scene where my ex-military boyfriend gets in a fight, and it was scripted that I just stand there ... I just got involved. I pulled one actor off of another and they loved it. They said, 'Keep doing it.' We did it 12 times and I didn't realize on the first take I broke my finger."

Aimee Garcia Deals With 'Trauma'

by Scott Harris, posted Oct 12th 2009 12:00PM
Aimee Garcia"It's like 'ER' times 10."

That's how actress Aimee Garcia described her new show 'Trauma' to us when we caught up to her recently. The medical drama, which airs Mondays at 9PM as part of NBC's revamped line-up, "pushes the envelope on all levels. It's like 'ER', but instead of opening someone's throat in an operating room, you're opening someone's throat in a moving helicopter."

Garcia, who plays pilot Marisa Benez, dished about riding along on actual 911 calls, hanging from a crane and feedback from real-life EMTs.

Trauma: Pilot (series premiere)

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 29th 2009 2:35AM
Trauma(S01E01) The first question I had after watching the new NBC medical drama Trauma was this: can the show keep this up every week?

You can tell a lot of money was spent on the pilot, because the first 20 minutes is like Irwin Allen: The Movie. Helicopters crash, cars explode, children are endangered. It's like those big episodes of ER where something massive happened, only this is going to be a regular thing with this show (if, as I said above, they can spend a lot of money on future episodes).

But what about the rest of the show? It's one thing to have big accidents and pyrotechnics (which are actually very impressive) but what about the cast, the writing, the stories?

Sneak Peek: NBC's Trauma

by Bob Sassone, posted May 6th 2009 11:37AM
TraumaNBC unveiled its new shows Monday (they'll reveal the full schedule on May 19), and one of the shows is a medical show. Well, actually, two of the shows are medical shows (the other is Mercy), but here's the first one. It's called Trauma, and it's set in San Francisco. Remember those special episodes of ER that had a helicopter falling on someone or a plane blowing up or a car crashing into the emergency room? This show looks like it has that stuff in every episode! But it makes more sense because these people are paramedics and not ER personnel.

Supernatural: Jus In Bello

Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles of Supernatural
(S03E12) There's no way that Kripke and the team over at Supernatural HQ could have foreseen the strike, only completing 12 episodes, and an extended break after episode 12. Had they been able to do that though, it's hard to imagine a better send off as we head into the break than what we saw in "Jus In Bello." The return of Henricksen and the introduction of Lilith made for a great mid (3/4) season intermission.
