Ferguson Is Skeptical of Adam Goldberg's Terrifying Home-Invasion Story (VIDEO)

Adam Goldberg Talks Intruder on 'Late Late'On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Adam Goldberg wanted to share the true story of a man breaking into his home at 3AM. But the cheery host initially teased him, saying, "You lucky bastard!"

Goldberg cracked a joke as well, saying that his girlfriend's drawing of the intruder "bore a striking resemblance" to 'The Social Network's' Andrew Garfield. The actor showed the picture before Craig Ferguson cut to commercial.

During the break, Goldberg recounted some details of the incident. Ferguson's lighthearted demeanor had vanished once the interview picked back up. "That was terrifying! I'm so sorry that I mocked," he said.

Craig Ferguson Cracks Himself Up, Can't Stop Laughing on 'Late Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Aug 31st 2010 4:20AM
Craig Ferguson Can't Stop Laughing on 'Late Late'Craig Ferguson has had a couple weeks off, and it appears to have made him a bit loopy. On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), the comedian introduced guest Adam Goldberg as an actor and musician, but he nearly said "magician."

So he rolled with it: "He doesn't know he's a magician -- that's the wonder of magic," Ferguson whispered, then began to laugh. Try as he might, he just couldn't compose himself.

Meanwhile, Goldberg just sauntered onto the stage behind him and sat down. The actor/musician/magician went along with it, too, showing the host a (really bad) magic trick with his keys. We suggest he stick to drama and music.

Ferguson Goads Adam Goldberg Into Odd Sex-Life Talk (VIDEO)

Adam Goldberg Talks Odd Love Life on 'Late Late'Trust Craig Ferguson on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS) to turn a conversation that begins on the topic of airline peanuts into the weirdest (bogus) discussion of Adam Goldberg's love life that (surely) the actor has ever had. Not that Goldberg didn't happily join in on the morphing dating/sexuality discourse.

"You have a girlfriend?" asked the host, surprised when Goldberg mentioned her. "I don't ask, I don't tell. Until that's repealed, my lips are sealed," joked the actor.

"So you have a boyfriend?" countered Ferguson. Responded Goldberg, "Yeah, I'm gay ... and I'm straight. I'm bi, I'm tri, man."

It only gets more bizarre from there.

Christian Slater's Latest Will Be a Fox Pilot

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 22nd 2010 11:00AM
christian_slater_muscle_tee_shirtNobody can accuse Christian Slater of not trying to get himself into a hit TV series. First there was 'My Own Worst Enemy,' then this year's 'The Forgotten.' Two swings, two misses. Will the third strike rule apply if his next project fails to make the cut? Whatever the outcome, you gotta give the guy credit for trying. Today, the Hollywood Reporter reported that Christian Slater's been cast in an Adam Goldberg comedy pilot for Fox.

There's action as well as comedy apparently, with Slater playing the leader of a group called Titan Team, a bunch of young, brilliant security experts. He's ex-military and a maverick. Writer/actor Trevor Moore from 'The Whitest Kids U'Know' is also in the pilot. He's the Don Juan and reconnaissance expert.

The Unusuals: The E.I.D. (series finale) - open thread

The Unusuals

Remember when The Unusuals premiered? At first it looked like one of those shows that didn't get gangbuster ratings or critical acclaim, but you sensed that it would be a show ABC would get behind and renew for a second season. Well, that renewal went to Castle. But a lot of people are really going to miss this show.

What did you think of the series finale?

Goodbye to The Unusuals

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2009 8:03AM
The UnusualsThe last few days have seen a ton of rather surprising renewals. Just when you thought Dollhouse, Castle, Chuck, Scrubs, and Better Off Ted were dead, they get renewals for another season. But that's not going to happen to another show with a following, The Unusuals.

The news won't come officially until ABC's upfront later tomorrow, but creator Noah Hawley says on his Twitter page that the show will not be back next season, and that the final four episodes will start airing on May 27.

The Unusuals: 42 - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2009 10:08AM
The UnusualsI watched the first ten minutes of this episode last night and that's it, so I'm not sure what the 42 in the episode title refers to. I know that it has something to do with weird happenings/coincidences that happen to Harold Perrineau's character. Can I also assume it's a reference to Douglas Adam's The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy?

Fox Mulder's apartment number was 42, if I remember correctly ...

Harold Perrineau: The TV Squad Interview

by Kona Gallagher, posted Apr 15th 2009 11:04AM

Harold Perrineau is worried. He's worried that viewers won't give his new show, The Unusuals, a chance. He has a valid concern: The Unusuals, which just premiered, is on Wednesday nights at 10, on ABC; otherwise known as the post-Lost timeslot (of doom).

ABC is showing faith in The Unusuals. After all, it's not stuck in the Friday night graveyard or anything. The post-Lost slot is tricky though; shows generally don't do well there. It could be that the minds of everybody who watches Lost are so blown, they can't even stick around for another hour of television. Whatever it is, the quirky cop show Life On Mars recently died a sad death there. Will this quirky cop show do better? Harold Perrineau certainly hopes so.

Warning: Spoilers ahead. We talk about plot points in the recently aired pilot, some spoilers for upcoming episodes, as well as the fate of Michael, Perrineau's character on Lost.

The Unusuals: Pilot (series premiere)

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 9th 2009 11:38AM
the unusuals pilot abc
(S01E01) ABC's quirky new crime procedural is not the brilliant blend of drama and absurd comedy the network might want it to be, but it does have a few good things going for it. First, there's the great cast. It's hard to pick a favorite among these talented TV vets, but series star Amber Tamblyn is genuine and beleiveable as Casey Shraeger, a detective working to weed out corruption in a kooky NYPD homicide unit, one of her first grown-up roles. Jeremy Renner, adding some Nathan Fillion-esque goofiness to his all-around good guy persona, is a good fit for Detective Jason Walsh, Tamblyn's possibly duplicitous partner.

I'm convinced that Lost's Harold Perrineau can do almost anything, even turn a one-note character like Detective Leo Banks, who's obsessed with the idea that he'll die at the age of 42, into something special. Perrineau didn't exactly get the best material here, but he and partner Adam Goldberg, playing a nervous depressive who is actually dying, managed to elevate their short scenes together.

Why I'm looking forward to The Unusuals - VIDEO

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Mar 20th 2009 9:29AM
Adam Goldberg stars in The UnusualsWith the exception of promo clips and my own personal high expectations, I haven't seen a ton of material about the new show The Unusuals. It will make its debut on April 8, 10 PM ET/PT. In this day of so many shows canceled way too early before they can get a steady audience, I'm hoping this one makes it.

Why, might you ask? After all, most of my posts are about the reality television genre. But I'm a cop show buff at heart. I expect a lot out of my cop shows. Some I watch just because -- you know, the Law and Order franchise kind of dealings. Some I watch for the amazing storytelling. The Wire comes to mind as not just a cop show, but stellar storytelling. I don't expect either the straight crime drama, nor the intensity of The Wire.

Five reasons to look forward to The Unusuals

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 9th 2008 1:24PM
The Unusuals adds crewThe Unusuals looks like one of those funny little shows that could either be a complete bust or a major mid-season breakout -- especially given the cast and crew. The ABC ensemble dramedy stars:

1. Amber Tamblyn. I've loved her since she played Emily on General Hospital, and she has that something-different quality that will surely rocket her to super-stardom ... in an indie-film sort of way. She broke into the mainstream consciousness with Joan of Arcadia, the talk-to-God series that ran from 2003 to 2005. I was so disappointed when Tamblyn's I-see-dead-people series Babylon Fields wasn't picked up last year, but The Unusuals sounds even better.

2. Harold Perrineau. We know him as Michael on Lost, and the actor was disappointed that his character wouldn't have a happy ending with son Walt. But he's on to bigger and better things with his role in The Unusuals. It was also announced today that he's joining the cast of (and exec producing) the feature film The Killing Jar, an indie thriller also starring Michael Madsen and Danny Trejo. It was time for Perrineau to leave the island.

Medium: Joe Day Afternoon

by Brett Love, posted Apr 5th 2007 9:01AM
David Cubitt - Medium(S03E17) Ok, this was a really good episode, and Adam Goldberg was a nice bit of casting. I'll get to all that in a minute, but first up. Where the heck was Scanlon? I realize that the Medium world revolves around the DuBois clan, and the rest of the cast are merely players in the telling of their story. But this was a hostage situation. And there is nothing for "Detective" Scanlon to do there? The D.A. shows up, but we can't get our favorite detective on site? It didn't ruin the episode, but it did stand out as something that was missing.

Lack of casting aside, I thought that team Medium delivered another winner tonight. They continued the trend of getting great guest stars as well. Adam Goldberg was terrific as Bruce. I'd put him just behind Mark Sheppard as my second favorite of the season. But then, "Blood Relations" remains my favorite episode of this go round. They kicked things off on just the right note with the strange DREAD opening. That, combined with Allison's cryptic dream really set the mood for what was to come.

More network pilot news

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 8th 2007 3:02PM

tvThe networks have added a few new faces to their pilots, because, well, otherwise the shows would just be shot after shot of empty sets, and that's not very exciting. Here's what's goin' on:

Jeffery Tambor (The Larry Sanders Show, Arrested Development) has joined the cast of the CBS comedy The Captain. The series stars Fran Kranz as a writer who moves into an apartment building where Tambor, a retired TV writer, also lives.

Kal Penn of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (which is actually a much funnier movie than it has any right to be) will star in The Call, a comedy from ABC about a group of paramedics in Los Angeles.
