William ShatnerWilliam Shatner will find himself on the wrong side of the law in Season 3 of 'Rookie Blue.'

The 'Star Trek' and 'T.J. Hooker' star will play a "very drunk driver" in the third season premiere of ABC's summer cop drama, according to TVLine.

Look for the role to be both dramatic and comedic. Shatner recently headlined the CBS comedy '$#*! My Dad Says.' It was canceled after one season.

'Rookie Blue' is currently wrapping up its second season as part of ABC's summer lineup. Season 3 is currently in production in Canada.

Into the Dragon's Lair - Wednesday July 27, 7 PM ET, Animal Planet

Two renowned nature cinematographers head into the crocodile-infested water of the Nile, armed with cameras and a spear gun, to try to capture the life of the crocodile while it's underwater. The 'dragons lair' of the title is actually tunnels through and under the papyrus reeds of the river, created by crocs and hippos, where visibility is basically nil. Their challenge is to get the animals on camera, in a way that's comprehensible for viewers, and not get injured by any number of dangerous creatures.

Missy Peregrym of 'Rookie Blue' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Missy Peregrym said Tuesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that she's always been athletic and loved sports, a trait that serves her well playing Andy McNally, the lead character on the police drama 'Rookie Blue.' She knows her way around a basketball court, and can twist a wrist into handcuff position with authority.

On the basketball front, Kit Hoover asked Peregrym if she thought she could take Billy Bush on the court. The answer was a hesitant but confident yes. "I wanted to be polite, but probably," she said. Bush said Peregrym might have trouble with his speed and asked her height. "I'm five six and a half but I've got a great shot and I'm squirrely out there," she said.

The Voice - Tuesday June 28, 9PM ET, CTV/NBC

The show ends this week, with the final four singing tonight and results tomorrow. I've enjoyed what I've seen of the show, though I admit I wasn't devoted to it. Most of my pleasure has come from watching Adam Levine try to be Simon Cowell, and wondering what Xtina is going to wear next. We get it, sweetie, you have a small waist and big chest.

McNally Shuts Down a Man's Murder-Suicide Plan on 'Rookie Blue' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 24th 2011 1:47AM
'Rookie Blue'The only scripted new series from the several ABC launched last summer to get renewed returned with its second season. And the action wasn't going to let up a bit on 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 10PM ET on ABC) for the fresh-faced rookie officers.

In this season premiere, McNally tracked one possibly the failingest criminal in the short history of the show to a rooftop where he was going to jump off. Except that he didn't. It kind of ruined his murder-suicide plan.

The intention was to murder his ex-girlfriend and then commit suicide. Instead he killed his ex-girlfriend's roommate, and McNally, and now he couldn't even jump off the roof. But he could talk, and while he was talking, McNally snuck up behind him and took out his knees, knocking him back onto the ground.

'Rookie Blue' Stars Missy Peregrym and Gregory Smith: Season 2 Gets Hotter, Sexier

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Jun 22nd 2011 1:00PM


The 'Rookie Blue' set is buzzing as the cast and crew work away on Season 2. The biggest change here since Season 1 is the addition of a toilet in one of the cells –- part of the painstaking efforts to make the show as realistic as possible.

The breakout hit from last summer is filmed on location across Toronto, but its base is here, inside a non-descript warehouse just outside the downtown core. Right now the cast is gathered in the briefing room as the crew films a meeting scene from every possible angle. While the rookies may not be brand spanking new, they still have a lot to learn. Season 2 has lots of curveballs in store, including the addition of Lauren Holly ('Dumb & Dumber') in a recurring role.

We caught up with stars Missy Peregrym, who plays Andy, and Gregory Smith, who plays Dov, between takes to get the rundown on what to expect from their sophomore season. (Hint: there's gonna be a love triangle!) They also dish on second-season jitters, newly found admirers and feedback from real-life cops.

A Suicidal Mother on 'Rookie Blue'Rookie cop Andy McNally has to muster all her coaxing and negotiating skills, but nothing's working. On 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC), a female soldier's daughter has just died, and now the mother is distraught to the point of being suicidal.

"You just wait until this job has ruined every relationship you've ever tried to have," the mom (Dana) says to Andy. Dana raises a gun to her own head and says her daughter's death is her fault.

Veteran officer Noelle Williams steps in, saying, "If you pull that trigger, all you'll be is a selfish woman who forced her 21-year-old daughter to bury her whole family in one day."

Will she put the gun down?

What to Watch: September 6 - 12

Stand Up to Cancer
- Friday September 10, 8 pm ET/PT, Global/CBS/NBC/ABC

This is the show all the celebs were pimping at the Emmys. It's hosted by Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric and Brian Williams, with appearances by every famous person in the whole world, so if you were thinking of throwing a Hollywood party that night, I'd say cancel it. I will not watch this event.

Cancer is not a disease that no one's heard of, or a disease that lacks for dedicated fundraisers and volunteers. In fact, it's a disease that's been a focal point for most 'real' people for a long, long time, and I'm not sure what a celebrity telethon is going to accomplish that hasn't already been done with grassroots organizing by people that aren't on TV.

The Cops Battle a Superhero on 'Rookie Blue' (VIDEO)

The Cops Battle a Superhero on 'Rookie Blue'You know how most superheroes -- like, say, Batman -- try to help the cops and prevent crime? Well, that's not what happens on the new 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC). In fact, the exact opposite is the case.

[Spoiler alert.]

Rookie cops Chris and Dov (played by Travis Milne and Gregory Smith) are trying to catch a drug dealer. Then, they encounter a masked vigilante called "The Guardian." With a name like "The Guardian," you would think he'd be one of the good guys, right? However, the masked man doesn't help the cops out at all. Instead, he robs them and then locks them out of their squad car -- unintentionally allowing the drug dealer to escape.

Missy Peregrym Talks About Shaving Her Face (VIDEO)

Missy Peregrym Talks About Shaving Her FaceOkay, first things first. Let's just get this out of the way. And sorry if it's a little reductive and sexist. Missy Peregrym is really really good-looking! (Also, her name is weird. Is her last name Welsh or something?)

Missy is a former model who appeared on the latest episode of 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox). She's also an actress on the new series 'Rookie Blue.' Excitingly, Missy has also appeared on a bunch of sci-fi shows in the past -- which makes her seem more accessible for those of us nerds who dream of someday going out with a supermodel.

While on the talk show, Missy tells host Craig Kilborn about the time that a make-up artist on a sci-fi series wanted to shave her face. Apparently, the pretty amazingly hot Missy had a "mustache," and so the make-up artist tried to use a razor on her.

Craig Kilborn had this response to Missy's story: "No! Don't shave it! It's gonna grow back fuller!"

Good point, Craig! Shaving hair does make it come back more bushy than it was before. That's a true scientific fact. You could look it up.

ABC Renews Freshman Drama 'Rookie Blue'

abc rookie blueLooks like the new kid on the block is earning some respect. ABC has reportedly picked up freshman summer series 'Rookie Blue' for a second season.

The new police drama about a group of fresh-faced cops earned the renewal after only three weeks on the air, reports The Live Feed.

The show's ratings haven't been stellar, but they've been decent enough for a new summer series featuring a cast of relative unknowns. (Having a hit show like 'Wipeout' as a lead-in has its advantages.)

On 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 9PM on ABC), Traci won her boxing match much to Andy's delight, but Andy couldn't celebrate too long before another fight popped up, this time it was unplanned.

Andy's father, drunk, started a brawl with another man at the match. "You said you weren't going to drink," she said. " ... You promised me ... maybe you shouldn't have gotten drunk. Maybe you shouldn't have hit that guy."

A Standoff Right Out of the Gate on 'Rookie Blue' (VIDEO)

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jun 25th 2010 12:41AM
In the first episode of new series 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 9PM ET on ABC), which follows the lives of five rookie cops who have just graduated from the police academy, Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) finds herself in a standoff with an 18-year-old boy who gets the drop on her.

She's on her knees, hoping she won't get shot, then gets smart and pulls her weapon on the boy, telling him to drop his gun. "Any sudden movements and I'll have to pull the trigger," she says. "That's procedure. Technically I should have done it already ... Please don't make me shoot you ... this is my first day."

'Rookie Blue' has been described as 'Grey's Anatomy' in the world of rookie cops; it also has been described as being bland but harmless. Based on this clip, we'll go with the latter.
