EXCLUSIVE: 'Good Wife' and 'Sons of Anarchy' Actor Cast in FX's 'Powers'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 18th 2011 5:45PM
Titus Welliver is one of the busiest working actors around: He appeared in the final season of 'Lost' as the Man in Black, he has recurred on 'The Good Wife' as State's Attorney Glenn Childs and he played the Irish gun dealer Jimmy O on FX's 'Sons of Anarchy,' in addition to roles on 'Deadwood' and dozens of other hourlong dramas.

Now Welliver is returning to the FX fold for the pilot 'Powers,' which is currently shooting in Chicago. 'Powers,' which is based on a Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming comic book, stars Jason Patric and Lucy Punch as detectives who investigate crimes involving people with superhuman abilities.

Welliver has been cast as Triphammer in 'Powers,' and if the pilot gets picked up to series, his role will be recurring.

Diane KeatonIt appears Diane Keaton won't be making her TV series debut this season.

According to Deadline Hollywood, HBO passed on its Keaton-starring comedy series, 'Tilda,' loosely based on Deadline blogger Nikki Finke. The show would've followed a powerful but reclusive writer but fell apart despite high-profile names like Keaton, director Bill Condon and producer Alan Poul aboard.

Ellen Page and Jason Patric were also booked to co-star.

Which of the Heroes is going to die at the end of the season?

Heroes cast
One of the Heroes is going to die this season. And not just one of the disposable ones that aren't important to the plot, but one of the main characters.

That's the news being reported by TV Guide and others. So which one will it be? There are even rumors going around that both Ali Larter and Hayden Panettiere want to leave the show, so they are both possibilities. Here's a quick analysis on each main character. Let's see if we can narrow down who could be the hero to kick the bucket (and I'm assuming it's really kick the bucket, not Heroes kick the bucket where they could still come back to life).

Heroes adds Jessica Collins to cast

Jessica Collins HeroesThe Hollywood Reporter reports that the already large cast of Heroes is balooning ballooning toward ginormous -- which is now officially a word, FYI. NBC confirmed that Jessica Collins, formerly of ABC's The Nine, will be playing Sophie, a new super-powered female.

The article describes her as a mysterious woman who works at the organization tracking all the heroes, which I assume is Primatech Paper Company -- unless there is a new organization to be introduced.

In addition to Collins, Dania Ramirez, Dana Davis, David Anders, and Lyndsy Fonseca are all expected to join the cast in the second season.

Smallville: Promise

Smallville - Promise
(S06E16) The wedding bells that have been ringing in the promos for this episode also sound like funeral bells ringing, is that a coincidence? We may never know. Anyhow, it's finally here, the Lex & Lana wedding that we've all been dreading/waiting for.

Did that scene of Lex and Lana watching the ultrasound creep anyone else out? It's scary to know what might come ripping out of that womb. I keep picturing that scene from Alien over and over in my head. I also hope that the photo Clark whipped out the window didn't end up decapitating someone in Malaysia. He really put some heat behind it.

Painkiller Jane: someone get me an aspirin - TCA Report

by Kevin Kelly, posted Jan 12th 2007 1:44PM
Painkiller Jane: candidate for VicodinThe creative team behind Sci Fi's new female superhero, Painkiller Jane, took the stage at TCA, but spent most of the time fielding questions about what they thought about NBC's Heroes. Executive Producer Gil Grant and series star Kristanna Loken both claim to have not seen Heroes, and seemed to bristle a bit at the questioning. Honestly, the shows are fairly different, both in plot and scope, but they haven't even taken a peek at what could feasibly be called the competition?

Q&A: "Can Jane feel pain?" -- overheard from a critic behind me: "Yes, when she reads the reviews." Ouch.
