Who Should Replace Laurence Fishburne on 'CSI'?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 21st 2011 8:00AM
Laurence FishburneThere have been quite a few TV departures lately -- some more shocking than others.

Somewhere in the middle there is Laurence Fishburne's announcement that he's leaving his post at 'CSI' after only two and a half years. Fishburne, who played lead investigator Raymond Langston, replaced series star William Petersen, who started as Gil Grissom when the series premiered 11 seasons ago.

Those were some pretty big shoes to fill at the time -- and Fishburne didn't always seem too thrilled at the comparisons -- but now who will be the third person to take the job? And how will the show look with lead actress Marg Helgenberger taking a lesser role next season, too?

We've brainstormed some good men -- and one lady -- for the position. Keep reading and share your own casting thoughts in the comments.

'Chaos' Set Visit: The Stars Talk Cool Spy Stuff & Their New Show

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 1st 2011 5:00PM
What do you get when you cross 'Alias'-like action with the bumbling ineptitude of 'Get Smart''s Agent 86? Well it's the opposite of CONTROL -- CBS is calling it 'Chaos' (premieres Fri., Apr. 1, 8PM ET on CBS).

Following agents of the CIA's Clandestine Administration and Oversight Services (CHAOS), this new comedic drama gives a humorous spin to the high-risk missions these CIA C-listers are assigned to under the most ridiculous of circumstances.

The cast of 'Chaos' on CBS

The show's cast includes 'Six Feet Under' alum Freddy Rodriguez as wide-eyed new recruit Rick Martinez; Eric Close as Michael Dorset, the leader of the team; sneaky Scotsman Billy Collins, played by James Murray; and Tim Blake Nelson as Casey Malick, an unassuming master of martial arts.

Garth Brooks' 'Unanswered Prayers': How the Song Became a Movie

by Pat Gallagher, posted Nov 29th 2010 1:05PM
Unanswered PrayersWhen Garth Brooks co-wrote the song 'Unanswered Prayers' 20 years ago, little did he know the song would make its way to the small screen.

The ballad about infidelity has been adapted by Lifetime in a new made-for-TV-movie 'Unanswered Prayers' (airing tonight at 9PM ET). Ben Beck (Eric Close) and wife Lorrie (Samantha Mathis) find their marriage test when he runs into his old high school flame Ava Andersson (Madchen Amick).

TV Squad spoke to Brooks and Close about turning a song into a movie and how infidelity is a bitch.

It was time for Without A Trace to end

by Allison Waldman, posted May 22nd 2009 4:29PM
LaPaglia Without A TraceWhen the news about Without A Trace ending its run was made official at the CBS Upfront this past week, I wasn't shocked. Rumor had it that either Without A Trace or Cold Case would be dropped, and Cold Case might have tipped the scales in its favor with a strong showing with its two-part season finale. But as much as I liked Without A Trace, I'm not really sorry that it's calling it a day.

Seven years is a darn good run for a TV show. In fact, if it had been a British series, it might have ended after 30 episodes – unless you're talking Coronation Street which is a freak of TV.

But here's the thing about Without A Trace, it's been a solid show with a strong set of characters who've had a chance to shine as much as possible within the confines of a procedural. Anthony LaPaglia as Jack Malone was terrific. The high point in many an episode for me was when Jack lost it and got in someone's face. His personal life was generally a mess, so LaPaglia had lots of chances to show the troubled side of his character.

Without A Trace: Undertow (series finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 20th 2009 8:06AM
Without A Trace

If you haven't heard yet, last night's season finale of Without A Trace has ended up being the series finale. CBS decided to cancel the show. But did it feel like a series finale, or did it just feel like another episode because they didn't know it was ending when they filmed it? Would you have rather have seen this show renewed instead of Cold Case and Numb3rs?

Overlooked hunks not in the Top 50

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 15th 2008 1:06PM
campbellHunks are in the eye of the beholder apparently. When I read -- drooled -- over the hunks chosen as the 50 Hottest Hunks Ever by our friends at AOL (that's a long time), I couldn't help but wonder about the guys that just missed the cut. I made a list. It was longer than the dozen men listed here, but these were the ones that I wanted included because they make my toes tingle.

Unlike Debra -- nice choices, Deb -- I've refrained from putting pictures of these hunks on my walls, but I sure have followed them from show to show, enjoying every moment when they were forced to take off their shirts or flex their muscles.

Bruce Campbell
Oh, Bruce! He is such a hunk. Remember The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.? He was the epitome of the western hero, looking great in black with a cowboy hat, on a horse. And that killer smile. Now, on Burn Notice, he's sort of an older hunk with the great Tommy Bahama shirts and perpetual five o'clock shadow, but still great looking. And since I was fortunate enough to meet him -- on a set visit -- I can tell you that he's a really an eyeful up close. I'd love to be in his arms any time!

Dark Skies not coming to DVD after all

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 7th 2007 2:41PM

Dark Skies adWell, this is too bad: the sci-fi show Dark Skies isn't going to be released on DVD as was originally announced.

Producer/writer Bryce Zabel announces on his blog that although The Crow multi-disc set is still on track to be released, Dark Skies won't be. He found out the news after coming home from Comic-Con. Sony has decided to cancel the release because getting the rights to the music used on the show would be too expensive.

Zabel says that he predicted this might be a problem a while ago and offered to work with Sony to get around the music somehow or use other music in certain scenes, but they never got back to him.

Why is Roselyn Sanchez even on Without a Trace?

by Anna Johns, posted May 19th 2006 9:47AM
roselyn sanchez; without a traceRoselyn Sanchez is new to Without a Trace this season but she's just been in the background the whole time. She apparently has some sort of a past with Danny Taylor (Enrique Murciano)... I think they used to date. And she was brought over to the FBI from the NYPD vice squad. Initially, there were some fireworks between her and Sam Spade (Poppy Montgomery). But, all of this happened in her inaugural episode and she has just disappeared into the background since then. Her bio on the show's webpage says she's a beauty queen and has only had a few acting roles. Everybody else got a storyline this season. Maybe she's just eye candy?
