Minka Kelly Gives Details on Her 'Charlie's Angels' Character Eve's Backstory (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Sep 22nd 2011 5:10PM
The reboot of 'Charlie's Angels' premieres tonight at 10PM ET on ABC, and Minka Kelly stopped by 'Live With Regis & Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) to talk about the show and her character Eve.

Apparently the show's producers wanted to cast Kelly so badly that they re-wrote the script to fit her talents. "It's funny because they had to write this new character. The character that they had written I didn't fit, so I was blessed and lucky enough for them to come up with Eve," Kelly said.

The show then cut to a clip from the 'Angels' premiere, which gave some details on Eve's backstory. She was raised in an orphanage in El Salvador after her parents, American aid workers, were killed in the country's civil war. She's also been a car-thief, and though she didn't mention it in the clip, a marine. "I'm not gonna bet the cards I've been dealt. If you want to survive, you have to adapt," Eve says. Adapt from orphan to angel, specifically.

'Parenthood' - 'What's Goin' On Down There?' Recap

Parenthood, What's Goin' On Down There?
(S01E07) "Would you boys like to come over for a play date?" - Yoga girl to Crosby

I love 'Parenthood.' Yes, there's a lot of people to keep track of, but it's all good. The show has some great players, but really, all I need is Peter Krause and Lauren Graham. And Dax Shepard and Jason Ritter. He reminds me of his dad, which makes me both happy and sad, but mostly happy.

The kids on this show are awesome, too -- Max Burkholder, Mae Whitman, Tyree Brown ... ok, since I'm filling in for Danny, I'll stop crushing on all the actors and get to the review. Follow me after the jump.

What to Watch: April 5 - 11

by Stephanie Earp, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:40PM

- Wednesday April 7, 8 pm, Global/Fox

For the 100th episode of 'Bones', David Boreanaz directs a backward-looking episode that recalls the early days of the Booth-Brennan relationship and how romance almost got in the way of the work. I too remember the early days of 'Bones' - the expensive 3-D technology they used to reconstruct a body, seeing Angel in a suit, the awkward dialogue of the overly-techy techies. I admit, I didn't think the show would make it this far. But there's no doubt Emily Deschanel and Boreanaz have great chemistry and that the show has grown and improved since those early days. Is it the new 'Moonlighting'? Not exactly, but it still deserves kudos.

Minka Kelly Finds 'True Love'

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 9th 2010 10:15AM
It's almost Valentine's Day, and for CBS, that means that love is in the air. And not just any kind of love, mind you, but the best kind of all: 'True Love.'

Yes, according to the Hollywood Reporter, work continues apace on the pilot for CBS's new sitcom 'True Love.' The latest victim to fall under Cupid's spell? 'Friday Night Lights' actress Minka Kelly.

Kelly, of course, was one of the breakout stars of 'Friday Night Lights,' but thanks to the nature of that show, her character had to be written out due to the pesky reality of high school graduation. Since then, Kelly has also appeared in the CW pilot 'Body Politic,' which the network surprisingly decided to pass on despite strong buzz in the media.

TV celebs touch each other's boobs for cancer research

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 30th 2009 7:01PM
Funny or DieFunny or Die has up an amusing clip starring a group of television and movie stars including Alyson Hannigan, Emily Deschanel, Kat McPhee, Minka Kelly and Jaime King in which they are at a slumber party together. One of them feels a lump on her breast and starts to panic. The issue gets resolved but not before the paparazzi show up to get some rather embarrassing photos of the group.

The sketch was co-written by King and Taryn Southern and is sponsored by Her Energy in support of breast cancer research. The entire six-part series is called "Tit for Tat." Let's hear it for amusing double-entendres.

Still, it's for a good cause and stars a plethora of television personalities (including the ever-cute Ms. Hannigan whom I've adored since her days on Buffy the Vampire Slayer), so it's worth a look even if you're just a perv who likes watching female celebrities grope each other. Video is after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: There Goes The Neighborhood

by Brett Love, posted Jan 5th 2008 10:22AM
Kyle Chandler - Friday Night Lights
(S02E10) And we're back. After a month off for viewers to celebrate the holidays, and for the networks to try and figure out how to fill up the schedule as the strike stretches on, our old pals in Dillon have returned. And things picked up right where they left off. Riggins is still wandering from home to home. Buddy is still in denial. None of us are sure just why Shelley is still living with the Taylor's. And Landry has gone from being riddled with the guilt of committing murder to being emotionally pummeled by the fact that he's fallen for a passive aggressive nutjob. It's a lot to get to, but we'll give it a shot, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: Seeing Other People

Friday Night Lights - Taylor Kitsch
(S05E08) I know a few people, and I've read comments from a number of others here at TV Squad, who refuse to watch the promos for shows that the networks put out. It usually boils down to them being either full of spoilers or completely misleading. If you are one of those people, this episode was for you, because not only did those of us that saw the promo have the ending spoiled, but we were also completely misled as to what the episode would be about, and I'm really not sure why the network did it. More on that, and the rest of the happenings this week in Dillon, after the jump.

Lance and Eric - Friday Night Lights
(S05E05) "Lance!"

Week five of season two brings us another packed episode. Eric is getting settled back into his role as the Panther's coach, and being with his family. Big changes are in the air for Landry on, and off, the football field. A more assertive Matt is coming to some realizations about Julie. And we find out the result of the great Mexican shark blood surgery road trip. It's a lot to get to.

Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland - Friday Night Lights
(S03E04) "The Eagle has landed. It's a done deal." - Buddy Garrity

Another Friday night spent with NBC, and this one came across as a little bit strange. Not bad strange, or good heavens, what now strange. Just that the story here caught me a little off guard. It's a little early in the season for what you might call a pivotal episode. Usually at this point things are being put in motion, or big picture stories are getting a break for a stand-alone episode. Such is not the case in Dillon, as three big stories had big moments this week. To balance it out, we also had more from the shark blood road trip, and the quickly getting away from us Lyla crusade. All that, and some other junk, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: Bad Ideas

by Brett Love, posted Oct 13th 2007 8:00AM
zach gilford - friday night lights(S02E02) As I was watching the show tonight, thoughts on this post were running through my head. Initially I planned on doing like last week and pushing the Landry/Tyra stuff to the end of the post, after we go through the parts of the episode that actually make some sense. But then I typed out that episode title, "Bad Ideas", and I just can't get over how well that fits.

They may have intended that title as a reference to what is going on with many of the characters. Things like Tami's admission that her insistence that she and Julie stay in Dillon was a bad idea, how Buddy's own actions have created his situation, the experimental Mexican surgery proposed to Street, or even Antwone's trip to the Justin Timberlake concert. To me though, THE bad idea is nothing that any of the characters are doing. It is this Landry and Tyra story that the writers and producers have cooked up. So we'll get started there, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: Last Days Of Summer (season premiere)

by Brett Love, posted Oct 5th 2007 10:31PM
Adrianne Palicki and Jesse Plemons - Friday Night Lights(S02E01) And we're back for another season with the Dillon Panthers. You have to think that there is some pressure on the folks behind the show as they kick off this new year. The renewal was great and all, but I suspect it came with some helpful suggestions as to the kind of numbers the network is looking for on Friday nights. It should be interesting to see how the show performs on the new night.

Over the summer we lost eight months of Texas time, but that really doesn't matter. For the most part, we pick up all of our ongoing stories where we left off last spring. Anything we really need to know is handed off to us as we are reunited with these characters again. Since the show kicked off with Matt and Landry at the pool, let's start there.

Friday Night Lights: It's Different For Girls

by Brett Love, posted Dec 13th 2006 7:05AM
minka Kelly(S01E10) Each week I am amazed at how they are able to keep so many characters so involved in each episode. While Lyla's ongoing struggle dominated the episode, we still managed to get some movement in the other stories as well. It was interesting how they went about telling the "It's different for girls." story from the title. While the bigger parts of the story were about Lyla and Julie, the real meaning of that title points much more to what we saw with Buddy and Eric.

Here are two men who spend their days in control, exerting authority. We see it with Buddy at the dealership, complete with his bluetooth headset, and with Eric in everything he does as a coach. But the minute the subject of their teenage daughters comes up, and there is a real issue to deal with, they both are at a loss. Floundering to try and do something, anything, without being able to step back and see the big picture. I thought the scene between Buddy and Britney's father was great. A humble man trying to do the right thing. So much story is conveyed in Buddy's crushed reaction. These last two weeks have really filled out the Buddy character. He's so much more interesting now that he's not the one trick sleazeball we first met.

Friday Night Lights: Wind Sprints

by Brett Love, posted Oct 18th 2006 8:41AM
Minka Kelly - Friday Night Lights(S01E03) They kind of telegraphed that the team was going to lose, but I think the show needed it to happen to really get into just what a crazy town Dillon is. It was a really good opening to the episode. The way the game footage was cut in with Coach Taylor in the locker room was very good. I was glad that they didn't just go with Saracen costing the Panthers the game. It would have been too much after he won the big game last time. Plus, having Saracen performing well sets us up for what promises to be an interesting quarterback battle.

Yeah, how about Voodoo Tatum? Didn't see that one coming. It's an interesting angle grounded in some realism. For those that don't know, recruiting for high school sports is a real thing, and not just for football. There was recently a story here about a girls basketball team that was forced to forfeit all of their games from 2002 to 2006 because of it.
