Lili Meets a Man With Breast Cancer on Lifetime's Anthology Movie 'Five' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 11th 2011 3:00AM
Rosario Dawson, 'Five'There's a certain stigma that's been attached, and rightfully so in many dreadful cases, to Lifetime Original Movies. But the ambitious breast cancer anthology film 'Five' (Mon., 9PM ET on Lifetime), is looking to change all that. The film empowers women at one of their most difficult times through five interconnected stories of five women at five different stages of life and cancer.

The film is a true anthology, featuring five different stars and directors for each vignette. Directing were Jennifer Aniston, Patty Jenkins, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore and Penelope Spheeris, while their stories starred Jeanne Tripplehorn at the heart of all the stories as an oncologist whose mother died from breast cancer.

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 28th 2011 11:00AM
Devon SawaThe last time we saw Devon Sawa's rogue agent Owen on 'Nikita,' he was preparing to go AWOL to try and wean himself off a dangerous, performance-enhancing drug masterminded by Division.

When the troubled assassin returns in this week's episode (Fri., Sept. 30, 8PM ET on The CW), he'll be seeking Nikita's (Maggie Q.) help in tracking down the doctor who created the regimen, and will inevitably find himself drawn into her latest mission to take down the corrupt government agency. And did we mention he'll be wearing a tuxedo?

We caught up with Sawa to preview Owen's return, hear his favorite part of shooting the show and learn what he thinks of the enthusiastic fan support for a romance between his character and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) -- even though the two haven't actually met yet. Join us after the jump for more.

Mild spoilers ahead.

NikitaIt's been a long summer, but the wait is finally over for patient 'Nikita' fans -- the show returns tonight (8PM ET on the CW) and in true 'Nikita' fashion, it's with a bang, not a whimper.

AOL TV had a chance to preview the season two premiere and interrogate showrunner Craig Silverstein and stars Shane West and Maggie Q, so join us after the jump to find out what you can expect from the ass-kicking new season.

Catch Up With 'Nikita': 5 Essential Episodes (Plus DVD Giveaway!)

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 13th 2011 3:00PM
So you've heard the buzz, your interest is tickled and you're ready to take the plunge into a new show. What's that? You don't think you have time to catch up on a whole season?

Have no fear, AOL TV is here. We're spotlighting five episodes from some of the best scripted comedies and dramas on TV that we think you need to see before jumping into the new season this fall.

Up now? 'Nikita.'

Maggie Q.

Based on the critically-acclaimed French film of the same name (and its spin-off TV series, 'La Femme Nikita,') this slick spy thriller stars Maggie Q. as the titular heroine, a former death-row inmate recruited into a mysterious government agency named Division.

Although the film and previous series take place while Nikita is still an agent, forced to carry out Division's morally dubious missions, The CW version explores new territory by focusing on Nikita once she's gone rogue and escaped the agency, and her new objective is to take Division down through any means necessary.

Comic-Con Q&A: 'Nikita' Cast Talks Michael & Nikita, Alex's New Agenda & More (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 24th 2011 12:00PM
Maggie Q, 'Nikita'It goes without saying that the stars of The CW are somewhat genetically blessed, but 'Nikita' stars Maggie Q, Lyndsy Fonseca and Shane West were definitely bringing the beauty on Saturday night at Comic-Con.

But pretty as they are, the 'Nikita' cast is anything but fragile -- they were happy to chat about doing a lot of their own stunts on the show. Q even got up from the panel in her tight yellow ensemble to humor a fan in the crowd who wanted to see her "climb up someone" in real life. You know the move: she runs straight at her target, then step, step, step until she can backflip right off of them? Awesome.

They joined executive producer Craig Silverstein to tease what's certain to be an action-packed second season, and AOL TV was on hand to bombard them with our burning questions before the panel.

Join us after the jump to discover what the future holds for Nikita, Michael and Alex. We've also got scoop on new love interests, mysterious pasts and who exactly is in charge of shadowy organization Oversight ...

Maggie Q and Shane West want you to know that they're incredibly grateful for their dedicated, faithful 'Nikita' fans.

In fact, when we stopped the pair on the CW Upfront red carpet a while back, they had less than a minute to chat before they were ushered away and spent that entire time gushing about their fans getting them the pick-up for Season 2 (premieres Fri., Sept. 23, 8PM ET on The CW).

"We're so lucky, aren't we?" Maggie remarked to her costar. "They're so amazing."

West agreed. "Yes we are. It's pretty amazing to see that everyday. It's kind of phenomenal what they've created, really."

"I don't think they understand how much their support means to us," Maggie continued. "It's just cool to create something and have people connect with it. You want them to, but you never know."

'Nikita' Star Melinda Clarke Teases Amanda's Past, Alex's Present and the Show's Future

by Laura Prudom, posted May 5th 2011 1:00PM
Melinda ClarkeNo one in Hollywood schemes half as well as Melinda Clarke -- and we mean that as a compliment. From her scene-stealing role as Julie Cooper on 'The O.C.' to her current guise as manipulative Division agent Amanda on The CW's 'Nikita,' Clarke has made a career out of playing powerful, seductive and downright devious women. Her enigmatic performance in the action-packed spy drama has rapidly become a standout in an already impressive ensemble.

AOL TV caught up with Clarke yesterday to discuss what's next for Amanda now that she's got rogue agent Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) in her grasp. With only two episodes left in season 1 (episode 21 airs tonight at 9PM ET), the stakes are high, and Clarke shared plenty of juicy tidbits to whet our appetites for what's to come in the next couple of weeks. Caution: Spoilers ahead.

'Nikita' Secrets Revealed at Pilot Screening at Comic Con

by Michael Maloney, posted Jul 25th 2010 1:00PM
maggie_q_nikitaComic Con devoted three huge rooms for a screening and Q&A session on Saturday for 'Nikita.' The TV series extends the legacy of the famous spy that's been played in previous incarnations by Anne Parillaud, Bridget Fonda and Peta Wilson.

Maggie Q takes on the role in this version, which debuts Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 9PM ET on The CW. The cast also includes Shane West, Lyndsy Fonseca and Melinda Clarke.

The pilot sets up some of Nikita's backstory, her relationships with her former bosses/co-workers in the spy biz and how Fonesca's Alex is recruited to become the next Nikita.

While viewers will learn that Nikita had a relationship with West's Michael, a new dude will enter her life as the series continues.

"It was important for us to come up with a fresh take [on Nikita] that isn't just a rehash," explained Craig Silverstein to Con attendees. "There's now two of them [Nikita and Alex.] You don't know how it's going to end. We're going to be telling the story of how Alex and Nikita got together."

Nathan Fillion in talks to join Desperate Housewives

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 3rd 2007 1:07PM
nathan fillionOn the heels of yesterday's news that Dana Delany may soon become a Desperate Housewife, is news that Nathan Fillion is also in talks to join the show. The Hollywood Reporter says that Fillion would play Delany's much younger husband. They'd be the new couple on the block at Wisteria Lane and would, no doubt, have some sort of mysterious past and secrets that they're hiding from the neighbors.

Rounding up the Fillion/Delany family is Lyndsy Fonseca, who may play the couple's daughter. Fonseca is currently the unnamed "daughter" that we occasionally see at the beginning of How I Met Your Mother.

It'll be interesting to see whether Fillion's addition to the show brings some Browncoats over to ABC on Sunday nights (probably not this Browncoat). Fillion had a lot of support from his fans when Drive launched this spring, but it was swiftly canceled by Fox.
