Brittany Snow, Aml Ameen Exit 'Harry's Law,' Chloe Sevigny Books Transgender Role and More Casting News

Brittany Snow, Aml AmeenWhen 'Harry's Law' returns to NBC for a second season (yep, that's happening), it'll be missing two of its young stars.

According to TVLine, Brittany Snow and Aml Ameen have left the show as series regulars in what is reported as a "mutual decision." The two may guest star during the second season.

'Harry's Law' stars Kathy Bates as Harriet "Harry" Korn, a patent legal eagle turned defense attorney. The dramedy comes from David E. Kelley, so you know there's a quirk: Harry operates out of an old shoe store.

'American Dreams' veteran Snow played Jenna, Harry's secretary. Ameen, known for the UK series 'The Bill,' played Malcolm, a client-turned-paralegal.

Chloe Sevigny Calls 'Big Love' Season 4 "Awful"

by AOL TV Staff, posted Mar 26th 2010 11:04AM
Chloe Sevigny'Big Love' star Chloe Sevigny didn't have much love for the show's fourth season, which wrapped earlier this month on HBO.

Speaking to the Onion's A.V. Club, Sevigny, who recently won a Golden Globe for her performance has Nicki, referred to the season as "awful," adding that the writers were "really pushing it" by "squishing too much" into such a short span of episodes.

"It was very telenovela," she said. "I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very far-fetched."

How to Fix 'Big Love'

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 5th 2010 4:00PM
Has 'Big Love' jumped the shark?

'Big Love' has been so over the top this season, with so many plot twists and shocking revelations crammed in, that it's seemed to take a perverse pleasure in its own excess. Some fans (like Time critic Richard Corliss) relish the Emmy-nominated show's game of "can we top this?", while others balk at the show's more head-scratching developments. What may be most frustrating about the current season is that it provokes both responses, awe and irritation, at the same time.

With the season coming to an abrupt end this Sunday, March 7 (after just nine episodes), it's worth looking back at the new problems with 'Big Love' that emerged this season -- and how the show can solve them in season 5.

'Big Love' - 'Next Ticket Out' Recap

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 1st 2010 9:02AM

(S04E08) "There is nothing about us that's the same and you know nothing about me." - Barb Henrickson

"Oh I know some...and I'm just getting started." - Marilyn Densham


The season is winding down and usually the plot endings that come to a predictable end do so just before the big shockers do. And that's what happened this week.

However, the surprise, one of many to come I'm sure, wasn't within the plot or the behavior of the characters or even the duality between good and evil of some of the supporting players in our little bigamy tragedy. It's the emotional reaction to the characters' connections and their endurance to endure that sneaks up on you and knocks your block off as you stand there all smug and self-aware that you were able to predict the ending. And it should. A show like this about much more than its plotlines and story shockers.

'Big Love' - 'Blood Atonement' Recap

Big Love
(S04E07) "My cope container is full. Do you hear me? It is ... FULL." - Barb to Margie and Nicolette after hearing ... well, everything


Believe me, honey, I know the feeling. My cope container is one of those extra large "Big Gulps" from 7-11 that can only be held in a car cup holder the exact circumference as an elephant's foot. And this week, even that wouldn't hold it.

It's natural for a show with 2,000 plus running plot lines to feel more overwhelming than an IRS audit, but it's starting to get a little less believable. That goes for both for the plots' plausibility and the surprise that none of the main characters has suffered the kind of complete nervous breakdown that can create the kind of police scanner activity that attracts the local "eyewitness" news crew.

Cat fight on 'Big Love'Oh dear. All is not well in the Henrickson household. The claws came out on 'Big Love' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO) when Barb, Nicki and Margene fought like cats and, well, cats.

"You're a flirt, Margene!" yelled Barb. "And that's a polite way of putting it! Just like your floozy mother. You just flirted your way into our marriage as the babysitter, and now you're a cradle robber!"

"F You, Barb!" said Margene. And Nikki added, "Slap her to her senses!"

HBO Gives 'Big Love' Big Love

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 4th 2010 11:15AM
In the world of HBO's polygamist drama 'Big Love,' three's company but four's a family. But what does five make?

Five seasons, that is, not five wives: According to the Hollywood Reporter, HBO has already renewed 'Big Love' for a fifth season after just four episodes of its current arc. Despite the alacrity of the decision, however, it comes as little surprise given that the season premiere posted a 49 percent ratings increase over last year, while the season as a whole is up 13 percent compared to season 3.

Review: Big Love - The Greater Good

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 18th 2010 2:31AM

(S04E02
) "It's clear that Bill has a calling, I'm sure of it. Just maybe the wires got a little crossed. Maybe you're meant to be the next prophet of Juniper Creek." - Nicolette on the revelations that he should run for the State Senate

Just when I thought I had a handle on everything surrounding the swirling complex vortex that is Big Love, Bill decides the best way to protect his already complicated family from slipping even further out of each other's grasp is to run for public office. Politics, it truly is nature's weed whacker. It aims to clean up messes, even if it destroys everything surrounding it in the process.

Now that Roman is dead and almost buried, talk of a new prophet is rising. In the red corner stands Alby, a frail, shadowy, smarmy little man with plenty to hide and expectations to live up to that everyone knows he can't possibly meet. And in the blue corner stands Bill, a rock of a man with just as much to hide but an ambition and willingness to stand and protect his beliefs, even in the face of unfathomable scrutiny and ridicule. Who does it sound like would come out on top in this sparring match?

Michael C. Hall, Mad Men score Golden Globe awards

Mad Men, Golden Globes 2010
Did your favorite actors and TV shows score Golden Globe awards tonight? Let's take a look at how things shook out in the TV categories at the 67th Annual Golden Globes.

Mad Men, Best Television Series - Drama.
With competition from Big Love, Dexter, House, and True Blood, I'm really glad I wasn't picking the winner here. They're all fantastic. I wouldn't say that True Blood delivered its best episodes last season, so I don't have a problem with that one not winning (though I'm a big fan of the show). Mad Men is definitely deserving (especially the "lawn mower" episode), although Dexter and Big Love both had great seasons.

Do you have any love for Big Love's new opening credit sequence?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 11:30AM
The new season of HBO's Big Love also brought with it a new opening sequence for the first time in its history and not everyone is in love with it.

Some readers of my review of the show's season four premiere made some well reasoned arguments both for and against the new sequence, something I didn't do because it wasn't included in the screener review HBO sent out before the show hit the airwaves last Sunday. It not only has a much different look and feel but it also has a new theme song, "Home" by the Engineers replacing "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys.

It's still early in the season, but I like the new sequence just as much as the old one. As for the song, well at least they didn't go with Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'."

In the new opening, which is similar to the season 4 teaser trailer below, we're greeted with Bill falling towards the camera, surrounded by nothing but black.

It feels like forever since Bill Hendrickson announced that he and his family would form their own religion and live apart from Juniper Creek and LDS and the rest of the state of Utah. And we also know that Roman Grant is dead, and unless Big Love is going in the direction of resurrecting the prophet like he's the real deal, that means Alby will be taking over for his father. Then there's all the business with the casinos, Nicki's teenaged daughter and her weird former husband, not to mention Margene's new business, Sarah getting married to Scott...
