Julie Benz on 'Good Morning America'Julie Benz, the matriarch of the super-powered Powells, shared a few spoilers about 'No Ordinary Family' when she appeared on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC). But she didn't divulge every secret.

In tomorrow's episode, Anthony Michael Hall "plays a man who's stronger and more invincible than Jim Powell (Michael Chiklis)," she said. And the following week, Tricia Helfer plays "a villain with the power of love."

But will viewers ever know exactly how the Powells' plane crashing in the Amazon led to their unique abilities? "You will find out how it happened and why -- [but] I can't tell you!" Benz said.

Gwyneth PaltrowOscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow is returning to 'Glee' for another singalong this season.

The 'Country Strong' actress confirmed the news to 'Access Hollywood.' Paltrow first appeared on the hit Fox series in November as substitute teacher Holly Holiday. She sang a few numbers with the cast, including Cee Lo Green's 'Forget You.'

'Glee' will be back in February with new episodes following the Super Bowl. CBS News anchor Katie Couric will guest star.

No word on when Paltrow's character will return, though May sweeps is a good guess.

Review: Community - Comparative Religion

Community: Comparative Religion
(S01E12)
The Christmas, er *ahem* the ... uh ... Holiday spirit hit Greendale Community College, and brought with it one of the funniest episodes of Community yet. It's the end of their first semester together, and Shirley decides to throw a Christmas party in the study group room. The only problem is, not everyone in the group is Christian. In fact, none of them are the same religion at all, and Pierce may be something else entirely.

What's more, Anthony Michael Hall showed up to bully Abed, and wound up having to face off against Jeff in a bully smackdown! The dilemma for the gang: show up at Jeff's fight or show up for Shirley's party. What to do?

Mastrantonio Joins 'Criminal Intent,' Anthony Michael Hall Enrolls in 'Community' & More Casting News

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 2nd 2009 4:30PM
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio joins Law & Order: CIThere's plenty of fun news in today's casting roundup, with veteran stars of film and TV taking center stage on various shows.

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio has signed up to join 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' for its upcoming ninth season. She'll play the new captain of the Major Case Squad, taking over for Capt. Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian), who ran the division for the past three years. The cast's other new addition is Saffron Burrows.

Along with Bogosian, leaving the show are regulars Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Julianne Nicholson, who's being replaced by Burrows.

Will the show take on a lighter tone? That's the word, with the action centering on Jeff Goldblum, who plays detective Zach Nichols. Personally, we can't wait to see the classy Mastrantonio, who's been a favorite since her 'Scarface' days, on this top cop show. [The Hollywood Reporter]

A Dead Zone movie is possible

by Kristin Sample, posted Jun 21st 2008 11:19AM
Anthony Michael HallLooks like a Dead Zone movie is possible. Anthony Michael Hall, who starred in the USA network sci-fi show, told SCI-FI wire that he'd be interested in doing a Dead Zone movie. Hall, who played psychic Johnny Smith for the show's six-season run, reminds everyone that he's not optimistic a Dead Zone movie will be made. "I don't think we had the size of a cult following that, let's say, The X-Files did. You look at Sex and the City or The X-Files, these movies were done long after the shows pumped out their last episodes," says the actor. Also, The Dead Zone having a previous incarnation as a feature film might preclude any new attempts. (In the film, which was released in 1983, Christopher Walken starred as Johnny Smith.)

Whatever the case may be with the possible movie, Anthony Michael Hall remains grateful about the opportunity to star in The Dead Zone. "I would certainly be open to the potential for [a reunion feature]. I would never turn my back on what [the show's late producer] Michael Piller did for me. He gave me this incredible opportunity. When I look back at [my] career, I view him and John Hughes as almost guardian angels of my career," Hall says.

The Dead Zone is dead

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 19th 2007 2:37PM

The Dead ZoneIn the wake of reports that The 4400 had been axed, Ausiello over at TVGuide.com is reporting that The Dead Zone was struck a killing blow in that same swing. Two good shows gone just like that. And just before the holidays. Man, that's gotta suck. So it looks like just as Johnny Smith sees that he's still going to have to address that impending Armageddon, the series ends. I always thought the ratings were pretty good on these shows; were they starting to show their age? Losing viewers?

I hate it when a show is canceled between seasons like this, especially when they don't resolve everything in the Season/Series Finale. It leaves a bad taste in the mouths of viewers, and makes them more and more jaded to new shows. Why do you think the serialized drama glut of last season failed so miserably. Because everyone knew we'd never see the end of The Nine.

The Dead Zone: Heritage (season premiere)

by Jen Creer, posted Jun 20th 2007 1:21PM
Bannerman(S06E01) I love the name of this episode: Heritage. With the shocking death of Walt Bannerman (the always great Chris Bruno) (I didn't see it coming, but my 13 year old son says he did), we have not only Reverend Purdy's Heritage foundation (where Bannerman died), but also the heritage he leaves to Johnny, and his son J.J. One of the primary questions that has endured for five seasons can now be explored: If Walt were not there, would Johnny and Sarah get together? Are they fated to be together? (If the previews for next week are any indication, the answer would be, "Not just yet.")

I worry because Greg Stillson has persistently pursued Sarah too. I am not convinced that she sees him for the villain that we (the audience) and Johnny know him to be. Though, Stillson did tell Johnny this episode that he isn't as bad as Johnny thinks he is...

The Dead Zone: Articles of Faith

Dead Zone cast(S05E04) Now that The Dead Zone is in its fifth season, the writers are lurching about a bit for compelling things for John Smith (formerly Johnny) to do. In last night's episode the" Articles of Faith," the writers pre-packaged a storyline that is vehemently anti-race/hate crime in the form of John Smith using his psychic powers to solve one such crime.

Paul Gleason dead at 67

by Annie Wu, posted May 29th 2006 7:51AM
Paul GleasonIt's not often that a celebrity obituary throws me into such a sudden shock that I can't do anything but stare blankly at the screen for several minutes. Well, this is one of them. Actor Paul Gleason passed away on Saturday from a rare form of asbestos-related lung cancer. He was 67 years-old. Gleason has appeared in various television roles, but he's probably most recognized as the vicious Principal Vernon from The Breakfast Club. The film has a very special place in my heart because when my friends and I have to dress up in costume for something, we always go as the Club (and I'm always the Basketcase).

This news is really quite upsetting. Time for me to break the news to the rest of my Breakfast Club.
