Pan Am Cast Interviews'Pan Am' is on the bubble -- a very stylish bubble.

Rumors of the show's cancellation spread like wildfire after star Karine Vanasse took to Twitter and said she received "the call." But the show is safe for the time being, according to a statement from ABC affirming the network's commitment to air all 14 episodes of Season 1 and confirming that it is still being considered for renewal.

"It's only going to get better," Christina Ricci told AOL TV during a visit to the show's New York set in early November. "It's just our first [season]. We're still trying things out and figuring out what works and what doesn't. I feel like we're just going to get better and better."

'Pan Am' Sneak Peek: Aaron Diaz is Ready for an 'Unscheduled Departure'

pan am Maggie is getting fun and flirty in this sassy sneak peek of this week's action-packed 'Pan Am' episode, 'Unscheduled Departure' (Sun., Nov. 13, 10PM ET on ABC).

In 'Unscheduled Departures,' the crew encounters serious turbulence -- both inside and outside the plane -- on the way to Caracas, Venezuela. A passenger suffers a heart attack and it turns out there's no doctor on board the flight. Ted (Michael Mosley) and Colette (Karine Vanasse) venture out on their own to find help.

The clip shows Maggie (Christina Ricci) getting a little flirty with an entrepreneur named Miguel, played by Mexican actor Aaron Diaz. Miguel is a frequent flyer who is on a first name basis with the Pan Am stewardesses.

Maggie Skips Her Flight to Try and Meet J.F.K. on 'Pan Am' (VIDEO)

'Pan Am' - 'Ich Bin Ein Berliner'This week, we finally delved a little deeper into what makes Maggie (Christina Ricci) tick on 'Pan Am' (Sun., 10PM ET on ABC). We also got to see some bonding between Kate and Colette, as the latter struggled emotionally on a trip to Berlin. This was 1963 after all, meaning she remembered the Nazi occupation of France from her childhood.

But 1963 in Berlin means something else as well, and that's what showed us how determined Maggie can be when she sees something she wants. We learned that she volunteered the most hours of anyone during President Kennedy's run for office, but she missed out on an opportunity to meet him. At least, until Kennedy's infamous speech in Berlin in the summer of 1963.

TCA Report: 'Pan Am' Panel Talks Espionage, Sexism and the Joy of Flying

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 7th 2011 4:15PM
Nostalgia is a potent cocktail, and two new shows are hoping to capitalize on audiences' fondness for the swingin' sixties this fall: NBC's 'The Playboy Club' and ABC's 'Pan Am'. Of the two, 'Pan Am' has a little more meat on its bones -- while 'Playboy' is frivolous and soapy, 'Pan Am' is concerned with character backstory, probably due to the involvement of Jack Orman (executive producer of 'ER') and Thomas Schlamme (director of 'The West Wing').

Pan Am TCA panel
Though on the surface, the jetsetting series seems to have a lot in common with AMC's 'Mad Men,' the producers insist that the similarities stop at the time period. "TV is just execution," Schlamme pointed out. "It has nothing to do with 'Mad Men,' we just hope our show is executed in a good way. They are both set in the sixties because it's a great time period -- I hope there will be shows set in the seventies, in the 1880s, wherever we can tell good stories."

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 27th 2011 3:15PM
Kat Dennings, Christina RicciEach year as TV becomes more and more daring, movie stars start flocking to the small screen. The 2011-2012 season is no different, with major broadcast network shows boasting box office darlings and Oscar nominees and winners.

W Magazine gathered a few of this fall's film-turned TV actors -- including Anjelica Huston ('Smash'), Christina Ricci ('Pan Am'), Kerry Washington ('Scandal'), 'Kat Dennings ('2 Broke Girls') and Patrick Wilson ('A Gifted Man') -- to discuss their new roles.

The interviews are mixed with a very retro fashion shoot and edited together for a bizarrely fascinating 4 minute video.

'Pan Am' Stars Christina Ricci and Margot Robbie on Girdles and Female Empowerment

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Jun 6th 2011 3:20PM


Taking an airplane never looked so good.

'Pan Am,' slated to start in the fall, follows a group of young flight attendants who sign on to the "new" luxury airline in the hopes of making a change in their lives. The passengers and crew face a voyage whose landscape is shaped by romance, a volatile 1960s society and yes, even undercover espionage.

Starring Margot Robbie ('Neighbours'), Kelli Garner ('My Generation'), Karine Vanasse ('Polytechnique') and movie star Christina Ricci as the flight attendants, there is no shortage of sexiness in the sky. But that sexiness is not easily found, according to Ricci.

Do you plan to see Speed Racer? - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted May 7th 2008 6:00PM

Speed RacerI enjoyed Speed Racer when I was a kid. I haven't seen it in 25 years or so and I'd probably be horrified now by what my youthful tastes were back then, but I remember liking the race scenes and what the car could do. I remember wanting my first car to be one that would have buzzsaws come out of the front and a big lever that would come down underneath the car that would make it jump over other cars. That last feature doesn't seem like it would work to me, now that I think about it as an adult.

Anyway, the live-action version with Emile Hirsch, Christina Ricci, John Goodman, and Matthew Fox opens this Friday. And the early buzz is that it's not going to do as well as they were hoping it would.

Ricci joins Speed Racer movie - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 13th 2007 2:01PM

speed racerMuch like the new Underdog movie, the Wachowski brothers' bigscreen adaptation of the popular Speed Racer cartoon will not be animated, but considering the Wachowskis were behind the Matrix trilogy, one assumes the new film will be both visually stunning and not especially "heavy" storywise. Of course, it's not as if the original cartoon was all that deep, either, so in many ways this is a good match. If they do it right, it could be the perfect no-brainer, popcorn matinee.

Christina Ricci on Grey's Anatomy

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 22nd 2005 2:35PM
Not only is Christina Ricci making a guest appearance on Grey's Anatomy, she's doing it on the most important night of the year for the hospital drama. ABC is airing her episode directly after the Super Bowl on February 5th. It's a huge opportunity for Grey's Anatomy. Obviously, ABC wants the episode to not only hold onto some of the huge audience from the big game, but also to create new, regular viewers of the show. ABC is keeping the plot of the program under wraps, only saying that Ricci arrives at Seattle Grace Hospital "not as a patient, but as someone in a life-and-death situation." O-kay. February's appearance marks the third television acting appearance for Ricci in recent memory, including a stint on Ally McBeal and a guest spot on Joey.

Personally, I think ABC is holding a contest to see who is tinier, Ellen Pompeo or Christina Ricci? I'm going to have to go with Ellen Pompeo on this one, since Christina Ricci still looks like a healthy person.
