'Secret Circle' Guest Star Chris Zylka on Chemistry with Cassie, Rivalry with Adam and Being a Witch-Killing Witch

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 27th 2011 10:30AM
Chris Zylka and Britt RobertsonAs one door closes on 'The Secret Circle,' another door opens, and though Chance Harbor is currently down one hunky blond Armstrong brother, a replacement has already blown into town to fill the void.

Chris Zylka plays Jake, an enigmatic bad boy who outwardly seems to want nothing to do with his dead brother's circle, but whose presence in their lives is far from coincidental. As we discovered at the end of last week's episode, Jake is in cahoots with a ruthless group of witch hunters, and seems determined to exact revenge on the town's witches for the death of his parents. Drama!

Despite his thirst for vengeance, Jake seems undeniably drawn to a member of the circle he's targeting, and when we spoke to Zylka, we couldn't resist asking about his character's connection to the seemingly irresistible Cassie, as well as Jake's tumultuous past with Adam and Phoebe. Hit the jump for more.

Spoilers ahead.

'The Secret Circle' EP Andrew Miller Talks Overwhelming Fan Reaction, Cassie's Father & Nick's Bad Boy Brother

Andrew MillerLast week's shocking episode of 'The Secret Circle' (Thursdays, 9PM ET on The CW) elevated the supernatural drama series to a whole new level, proving that it's not afraid of killing off a beloved character to drive the story forward. Since then, fans have taken to message boards and Twitter to react to Nick's demise -- both positively and negatively (and loudly) -- and their passion has obviously taken the producers by surprise.

Earlier this week, I spoke to executive producer Andrew Miller to gauge his reaction to the outpouring of online opinion -- suffice it to say, he's pleased. During our chat, Miller also touched on the ever-evolving love triangles that populate the show, discussed the arrival of Nick's troublemaking brother Jake (Chris Zylka), and teased a little more about the role Cassie's father will play in the ongoing story.

We also have an exclusive preview clip from this week's episode to whet your appetite for tomorrow night, so hit the jump for the video and our conversation with Miller. Warning: Spoilers ahead.

10 Things I Hate About You: Pilot (series premiere)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2009 1:38AM
10 Things I Hate About You(S01E01) Just as the new Parenthood series coming to NBC is a re-imagining of the classic movie, 10 Things I Hate About You is a very loose take on the film of the same name. And the film itself is a loose take on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The only real connection to that source is an early name-drop for the playwright.

If you let yourself get frustrated at how this doesn't even come close to mirroring some of the themes of Shakespeare's comedy, you'll miss out on what the show does offer, besides Larry Miller reprising his role from the movie as the sisters' father. Just think of it as a high school comedy featuring two very different sisters. In this one episode, we got pretty effective glimpses of virtually every social strata that exists in a high school. It's no My So-Called Life, but 10 Things does a pretty good job of being a family high school comedy. And isn't that what it's trying to be?
