'Bones' - 'The Predator in the Pool' Recap

(S05E18) "I'm glad to know you are out there." - Dr. Catherine Bryar to Booth

We too are glad that Booth is out there to save the day and especially that he is played by cutie David Boreanaz, no? However, I'm not sure 'Bones' fans were as glad to see Catherine Bryan, played by Rena Sofer, out there with Booth as it puts yet another obstacle between Booth and Brennan's potential coupling.

What to Watch: April 19 - 25

Warehouse 13
- Friday April 23, 10 pm, Citytv

This SyFy show makes its Canadian debut tonight, although in some ways it's been in Canada all along - it is shot in and around Toronto and Dundas, Ontario, and stars a slew of Canadian actors, including series lead Joanne Kelly. The plot is kind of silly -- two agents are assigned to gather supernatural artifacts for storage in a mysterious warehouse. But one could say that the plot of 'The X-Files' is equally ridiculous - it's all in the writing and the chemistry, which for the most part has gotten good reviews. US media keep citing 'Indiana Jones', but another show popped into my head -- 'Relic Hunter.' But 'Relic Hunter' with a budget.

(S07E14)
As the title suggests, what we witnessed going on for much of this episode was not reality, but a 'Masquerade.' If you pay attention to titles, you can have an edge figuring out what's what. Meanwhile, beyond the action, there was more character interaction as 'NCIS' continues to weave a few mystery threads, including M. Allison Hart's fascination with Mr. Gibbs.

Mastrantonio Joins 'Criminal Intent,' Anthony Michael Hall Enrolls in 'Community' & More Casting News

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 2nd 2009 4:30PM
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio joins Law & Order: CIThere's plenty of fun news in today's casting roundup, with veteran stars of film and TV taking center stage on various shows.

Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio has signed up to join 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' for its upcoming ninth season. She'll play the new captain of the Major Case Squad, taking over for Capt. Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian), who ran the division for the past three years. The cast's other new addition is Saffron Burrows.

Along with Bogosian, leaving the show are regulars Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe, and Julianne Nicholson, who's being replaced by Burrows.

Will the show take on a lighter tone? That's the word, with the action centering on Jeff Goldblum, who plays detective Zach Nichols. Personally, we can't wait to see the classy Mastrantonio, who's been a favorite since her 'Scarface' days, on this top cop show. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Rena Sofer cast on NCIS

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 31st 2009 8:17AM
Rena_sofer_NBCOne of my favorite actresses is joining the cast of America's most watched drama series. That means about 20 million viewers a week will get to see her in action. The actress is Rena Sofer and she's been cast on NCIS as a hard-nosed, no-nonsense lawyer. The role could be long term or recurring, they're not saying yet.

In fact, they're not giving much away at all. Not even the character's name or when she starts. Thus far, it's hard to see where a lawyer would be needed in the current storylines, so it's likely that there's an arc on the way that will bring her along as a key element.

Rena has a load of primetime experience, having appeared on Heroes, 24, Couples, Blind Justice, Just Shoot Me... but for me she was never better than when she was on General Hospital as Lois Cerullo.

Monk: Mr. Monk's Favorite Show (season premiere)

Somewhere Sherwood Schwartz was smiling if he watched this season premiere of Monk. Or else he was calling his attorney to sue for copyright infringement. I think it was more likely the former, because the tribute to The Brady Bunch was sweet. More on that and the rest of Mr. Monk's return -- for his last season -- after the jump.

Rena Sofer booked on Two and a Half Men

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 8th 2008 2:02PM
Sofer HeroesOkay, you know how on How I Met Your Mother there's a big, ongoing story about who is actually the mother? Well, I think CBS has spilled some of that storyline over to Two and a Half Men, the show that usually is paired with HIMYM on Monday nights. Why do I say this? Because they seemed to have cast a mother!

Actress Rena Sofer has been cast on Two and a Half Men as someone who played a significant role in Charlie's life and she comes back into it on September 22, the season opener. She brings along a child when she returns, a little boy -- her son -- who may have some connection to Charlie.

Now, the connection hasn't been spelled out, but if he has an affinity for booze, plays the piano, wears bowling shirts and chases little girls, you can bet he's Charlie's child. Of course, the writers will probably be more subtle, but this would be an interesting wrinkle in the show if that's the direction in which they're going.

Ten actors who helped make General Hospital shine

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 20th 2008 12:02PM
GH logoIn honor of General Hospital's 45th year on the air, AOL came up with a terrific photo trivia quiz which was like a trip down memory lane for longtime fans like me. Seeing all those familiar faces made me realize that through the years there have been some wonderful actors who've called Port Charles home. Here's ten that were memorable and, in my opinion, let an indelible mark on General Hospital.

Amber Tamblyn (1995-2001)
When the producers and writers of GH realized the quality of an actress they had with Amber Tamblyn, they took this 12 year old girl and made her an important part of the Quartermaines, a core family. She appeared as Emily Bowen, the daughter of Page, a woman Monica befriended while they were undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. When Page died, Monica and Alan adopted Emily and she became part of the family, and eventually the conscience of the squabbling, occasionally unscrupulous clan (along with Lila). Amber grew up on GH, going through growth spurts and the emotions of the awkward years. She never failed to convey a reality and truth in her acting. She was a shooting star, passing through GH on the way to bigger things, like Joan of Arcadia.

Saved By The Bell -- DVD Review

by Brett Love, posted Aug 8th 2007 9:55AM
Saved By The Bell DVDIt's always interesting going back to see something that you were once fond of again. Sometimes they hold up, and sometimes you are left shaking your head wondering what could have been in the air in 1982 that made you like this pile of crap. That's how I headed into the new Saved By The Bell double feature DVD, which includes "Wedding in Las Vegas" and "Hawaiian Style."

Somewhere along the lines Saved By The Bell ended up rerunning on cable at the perfect time to fit into my daily routine, and I got in the habit of watching it regularly. I'm not positive that I have seen every last episode, but I know I'm pretty close. So, you could say I was a fan of the show. That, or I really should have popped for the more expensive cable plan all those years ago.
