Sarah Michelle Gellar Doubles Your Pleasure: When Actresses Tackle Dual Roles

by Stephanie Earp, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:00PM
After 8 years away from TV, Sarah Michelle Gellar returns this fall in 'Ringer,' one of the more talked-about pilots of the season. Never one to back away from a challenge, our girl comes back not as one character, but two -- identical twins Bridget and Siobhan. As SMG herself pointed out at Comic-Con, she's doing this for the love of the game, not the paycheck (only soap stars get paid extra when they take on an evil twin/clone/long lost cousin side project). In honor of her noble dedication to her craft, here's a few other actresses who've gotten multiple listings in a TV credit.

'Twin Peaks' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 8th 2010 12:00PM
'Twin Peaks,' David Lynch's cult classic serial drama about the quirky, cherry pie-and-coffee-lovin' FBI agent Dale Cooper and the mysteries he investigates among the equally quirky denizens of fictional Twin Peaks, Washington, debuted 20 years ago today. And because its impact on pop culture endures -- as do airings of the series on A&E's Crime and Investigation Network, as well as NBC Universal's Chiller -- it's the perfect time to catch up with what the Lynchian stars have been up to in the past two decades.

'Twin Peaks' 20 Years Later: How the Show Changed Television

by Jason Newman, posted Apr 7th 2010 5:50PM
Dwarf on Twin PeaksMy girlfriend woke up screaming last year.

I could vaguely hear cries of "No!" and "Get Away!" through my sleep before she arose panicked and disheveled, sweat beads glistening off her forehead. We had just watched an episode of David Lynch's cult classic 'Twin Peaks,' and she'd had a nightmare that she was brushing her teeth, looked up into the mirror and saw the image of BOB, the show's psychotic murderer, maniacally rushing up on her.

Twenty years after the influential cult television show began, David Lynch's sci-fi, absurdist murder-mystery soap opera continues to scare and befuddle legions of viewers. Without it, there would be no 'Lost', 'The X-Files' or any of the countless serials habitually labeled "quirky" and/or "weird" since the show's debut on April 8, 1990.

Which CBS Show Should Get the Post-Super Bowl Slot? (Team 'How I Met Your Mother'!)

by Chris O'Connell, posted Nov 13th 2009 12:25PM
How I Met Your MotherCBS has an important decision to make: Which of their programs will follow the Super Bowl in an effort to grab the incredibly high ratings that the NFL championship game inevitably gets every year?

Does the network choose a comedy, like NBC would do with 'Friends' after Super Bowl XXX, one that featured guest stars like Brooke Shields, Chris Isaak, Jean-Claude Van Damme and more? Or does CBS do what Fox did after Super Bowl XLII -- aka the greatest Super Bowl ever, featuring the New York Giants upsetting the undefeated Patriots -- and air an hour-long drama like 'House'?

Whatever CBS decides, we implore them not to complete the trifecta and air a third post-Super Bowl episode of Survivor. It's time for some fresh blood.

Top 13 Scariest Moments on Television

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 29th 2009 2:02AM
That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power. Admit it, we've all gone to bed at some point in our lives after watching something scary on TV, and we've pulled the covers up over our heads. It's not real, yet it has the power to make us afraid. Very afraid.

In the spirit of Halloween, here are the Top 13 scariest moments on television (in no particular order). Let us know if we've missed the mark.

Christopher Gorham gets a new role

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 13th 2008 2:21PM
C. Gorham Ugly BUgly Betty's Henry is going to Harper's Island. Actor Christopher Gorham has been cast on the new mystery Harper's Island. Good for Chris, but what about his other character, Henry, the lovable geeky accountant on Ugly Betty? That remains in question.

On Harper's Island, which CBS is calling a Ten Little Indians/Twin Peaks-style horror mystery in which a wedding party on a Seattle island find themselves cut off from the mainland with a murderer on the loose. The killer is doing away with characters week after week and everyone is a suspect or a victim.

In addition to Christopher Gorham, actor Bill Pullman (Sleepless in Seattle) is also in the show as a jovial, drunken Uncle Marty.

Medium: Being Joey Carmichael - VIDEO

One Happy Family(S04E15) "All right, one more time for the slow kid." - Lee Scanlon

When I was in grade school, sixth grade to be precise, everyone brought their lunch to school in a small brown paper bag, sometimes, girls used a cute version (white bag with hearts, pink bag with kitties) but other than that, there were no exceptions. If anyone was foolish enough to bring their mid day meal to school in a lunchbox of any kind, they would pay dearly. For example, my friend Lance who quickly earned the nickname "Lunchbox Lance" all because of his love for the rock band Kiss. Thankfully, it never occurred to Lance to fight back like the young man in Allison's dream. However, now that I am an adult and I collect vintage metal lunchboxes, I would pay a hefty price for the lunchbox that young man used to bludgeon his tormentor.

Medium: Partners in Crime - VIDEO

by Paul Goebel, posted Apr 15th 2008 8:02AM

The upstanding Det. Scanlon(S04E12) I had all but forgotten about Kurtwood Smith. I've been a big fan ever since Robocop and this character is really fun to watch. I only wish the writers had given his character a different name. Every time someone calls him Agent Cooper, I flashback to Twin Peaks and I feel like I'm betraying Medium by wishing that Peaks was still on the air.

One of the best things about Smith is how he can be so menacing while still keeping a smile on his face. In fact, I find him scarier when he smiles. I felt the same way when Red would actually say something nice to a member of his family on That 70's Show.

Several DVD sets change release dates

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 31st 2007 2:59PM

Twin PeaksOK, so you're one of the people who is waiting for the first season sets of The Streets of San Francisco and/or The Untouchables to be released. But now comes word that both Paramount sets have been delayed a week.

The Untouchables set will now be released on April 10, a week later than originally announced, while the Streets of San Francisco set will also be released on April 10.

But there's one piece of good news, for fans of Twin Peaks: the second season will actually be released a week earlier than previously announced, on April 3. That's a Paramount title too. Maybe they wanted to get this one out a week earlier than the other two releases for some reason.

Twin Peaks second season on DVD in spring

by Adam Finley, posted Dec 11th 2006 6:25PM

twin peaksOver a year ago I mentioned a rumor that David Lynch would be bringing Twin Peaks back to television, possibly as a series of TV movies. As it turns out, that's not true. Lynch put the kibosh on the rumors an interview with Suicide Girls, and stated he has no intention of revisiting the series. To be honest, I'm not that bothered by his decision. Twin Peaks had a decent run considering how bizarre the show was, and it seems more than a little foolish to come back to it at this late date. Of course, someone should tell that to Sylvester Stallone, too.

There is some good news for Twin Peaks fans, however. In another interview with iF Magazine he said that the second season of the series would be available next spring. TVShowsOnDVD also has an unofficial announcement that the DVD will hit stores in April of next year, so keep your eyes peeled.

Twin Peaks coming back?

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 19th 2005 2:19PM

Twin Peaks happened too soon for me. I believe I was in junior high around the time the series aired, and while I was certainly of the mindset to enjoy it, I simply had yet to discover the macabre surrealism of Lynch's vision. By the time I realized what I had been missing, well, I missed it. There may still be hope, however, as there are (somewhat unfounded) rumors that Lynch might consider bringing Twin Peaks back to the TV screen for a series of made-for-TV movies. Nothing official has been announced, yet, though.
