Fall TV's Biggest and Best Guest Stars

by AOL TV Staff, posted Sep 6th 2011 2:00PM
Ray Romano, Charisma Carpenter, Seth RogenWhile some shows have lured famous movie stars into leading roles, other shows are taking a more temporary approach this fall with big-name guest stars booked for short-term stints on the small screen.

Fall TV will host several major reunions that you definitely won't want to miss. Terry O'Quinn will head back to the island for a stint alongside former 'Lost' costar Daniel Dae Kim on 'Hawaii Five-0,' while Ray and Debra are back together (sort of) when Ray Romano stops by 'The Middle' to visit his former 'Everybody Loves Raymond' costar Patricia Heaton. And let's not forget 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters playing a married couple on an episode of 'Supernatural' this season.

Wanna know who else is heading to TV this fall? Check out some more of the biggest and best guest stars, including 'The Wire' alum Michael K. Williams (Omar!), Oscar-nominated actress Patricia Clarkson and crooner Josh Groban in AOL TV's fall guest star gallery.

Scott Wolf Talks Fifth Column Politics, Double-Crossing and the 'V' Season Finale (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Mar 15th 2011 2:30PM
Scott WolfWhen it comes to capricious alien invaders hell-bent on (surreptitious) world domination, we think that the most sensible thing to do is stay on their good side.

It's a strategy that's worked very well for Scott Wolf's character on ABC's 'V' thus far, with his duplicitous journalist, Chad Decker, playing devil's advocate for the Visitors on national television, while secretly working to undermine them behind the scenes.

But is Chad's luck about to run out? Reptilian queen Anna (Morena Baccarin) doesn't take kindly to people trying to sabotage her plans, and now that he's thrown his lot in with the anti-V group the Fifth Column, he's treading on thin ice, especially leading up to tonight's season finale.

We caught up with Wolf to get the scoop on what the final episode holds for Chad, the lengths his character will go to in order to stay on the winning side, and what his predictions are for a potential third season. Join us after the jump for more. Spoilers ahead.

Join us after the jump to get your 'V' fix -- it's far more tasty than eating a rat, we promise.

The Stars of 'V' Talk Red Skies, Dream Guest Stars (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Aug 27th 2010 8:00PM
V'V' had one of those first seasons that most shows can't quite recover from -- wonky scheduling, showrunner shuffling, the works -- but by finale time, with an entire future generation of Vs wiped out and the sky turning red, the show had found its footing and earned a second season.

With the season 2 premiere (November on ABC) comes an explanation of the bloody atmosphere and the introduction of a few new characters, including Bret Harrison as evolutionary biologist Dr. Sidney Miller and Anna's mother, Diana, who'll be played by the original Diana from the early '80s mini-series and show, Jane Badler.

I caught up with stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Morena Baccarin, Scott Wolf, Joel Gretsch, Morris Chestnut and Laura Vandervoort and boss man Skeeter Rosenbaum to hear all about what comes next.

'Everwood' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by Chris Harnick, posted Jun 22nd 2010 4:00PM
Everwood'Everwood' was one of the WB's most beloved family dramas. The series followed Dr. Andy Brown and his two kids, Ephram and Delia, as they adjusted to their life in Everwood, a small Colorado hamlet, after the death of Julia Brown. To honor his wife's wishes, Dr. Brown left his high-profile medical career and transplanted his kids from New York City to Everwood.

The series ran for four years; it met its end when WB/UPN merged in 2006. When word came of the cancellation, 'Everwood' fans rallied to save their show and erected a Ferris wheel in Los Angeles to mimic the series finale.

'Everwood' has been slowly released on DVD. The most recent set, season 3, hit shelves on June 15, five years after it aired. Tell me I'm not alone in 'Everwood' nostalgia and join me for a return to the sleepy Colorado town with this "Where Are They Now?" (Cue the swelling piano and violin cords of the theme song.)

'V' - 'Heretic's Fork' Recap

V: Heretic's Fork
(S01E09) "What does this mean? I'm pregnant! What about the baby?" - Val to Ryan, after learning that he's a Visitor

I guess it would be pretty startling to learn that the guy you've known for ten years, the guy who's the father of your baby, is an alien with a lizard-like body hiding under his human suit, or "meat suit" as the 'Supernatural' boys call it. Poor Val. What a shock. And a shock for Ryan when she tells him she doesn't want him getting on the train with her.

In one way, I'm worried that she won't have Ryan to protect her, but in another way, she might actually be safer without him. Either way, it's a dismal situation, and Anna won't stop until she has that "mongrel" baby. But doesn't it seem like there would be other half-breed babies, since the Visitors have been living on earth for quite some time now? Anna better prime up some more soldiers, because they have their work cut out for them.

'V' - 'We Can't Win' Recap

(S01E08) "Your girl's got a baby lizard in her terrarium?" - Kyle to Ryan

Somewhere in the past few episodes, 'V' has gotten really good. I've always loved the show -- and haven't watched the original series yet, so can't compare -- but I found myself waiting impatiently to see what would happen in this episode. And also see how much scarier Anna could get. I swear she gets scarier every week. She's one scary lizard-chick.

'V' - 'John May' Recap

V, John May
(S01E07) "Let them have this one victory, because I'm about to deliver them a thousand defeats." - Anna, before she sinks into the shiny pool with her little eggs.

Hells bells, Ryan may be a good guy now, but he wasn't always that way. In fact, he was pretty nasty back in the day. When he and the gang went to track down John May's communication device, Ryan spilled the beans to John's stepson James about what really happened ten years earlier. John May's suicide note was a fake.

Oh, and by the way, James, that girl you're hanging out with? Under that human skin, she looks like the Vaal from the planet Gamma Trianguli VI on 'Star Trek.' Hmmm...

'V' - 'Pound of Flesh' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 7th 2010 5:54AM
V, Pound of Flesh
(S01E06) "It's time we told him the truth about who he really is." - Joe to Erica, about Tyler

Well, who is he?! Is he supposed to be some sort of warrior a la John Connor, who'll lead the resistance against the aliens? I have no idea, but can't wait to find out. Based on the fact that Tyler seems enamored with the Visitors, it's hard to imagine him as a leader of the resistance. The dynamics will have to change with Lisa; Erica's plan to hide Tyler away at his dad's isn't working.

I've been thinking about where I'd fall in the alien vs. humans war, and I'd definitely be a member of the Fifth Column -- organizing meetings, gathering weapons, training people to fight ... I have no tolerance for any sort of manipulation, and doubt that I'd fall prey to Anna's bliss. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

'V' - 'Welcome to the War' Recap

Elizabeth Mitchell, 'V'
(S01E05)
Remember this show? If the ratings results for the return of 'FlashForward' are any indication of things to come, the answer appears to be "No." A difference between 'FlashForward' and 'V,' though, is that while 'FlashForward' delivered ten episodes, which many found to be disappointing, 'V' has only had four.

While ratings did decline over the course of the four episodes, the reaction to them wasn't as clearly negative. For the most part, the jury seemed to be out. The question now is whether or not the show has been out of circulation too long to recover with these remaining nine episodes of the first season.

It's been four months since a new episode of 'V,' but to the credit of the vision, it doesn't feel as if we've been gone that long at all. Tonight's mid-season premiere certainly brought plenty of exciting moments in the growing war between the Visitors and the human race, as well as a nod to a classic 'V' moment.

Scott Wolf Shares Home Movie of Baby Son (VIDEO)

Is there anything cuter than a baby feeding itself? Scott Wolf of 'V' proudly showed a home movie of his one-year-old son munching on Cheerios on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

In this clip, Wolf's son, whose name is Jackson, attempts to pick up a single Cheerio with his mouth. After several unsuccessful tries, the cereal somehow manages to end up in his nose.

Review: V - It's Only the Beginning

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 25th 2009 8:46AM
V: It's Only the Beginning(S01E04) Well, that's it until March 2010. The most important thing that V could do this week was to leave us hanging on the edge of our seats as to what's coming next. If the idea was to give us a sense of sheer hopelessness in the face of the power of the Visitors, then that's what we did.

More importantly, we got to see the genesis of the Resistance movement led by Jack, Ryan and Erica. It makes an even more powerful figure when you consider that at this point there are exactly four people -- at least that we're following -- taking on 29 Visitor ships with technology and power almost beyond our imagining.

Everyone loves a scrappy underdog, and you couldn't ask for much more than that. But it was great seeing them take some of their first strikes against the Visitors as a unit. This is the struggle, against near impossible odds, that will keep us glued to our seats.

V: It's Only the BeginningWhat happened on this week's 'V' season 1 episode 4, '"it's Only the Beginning" -- in 100 words or less.

Erica, Georgie, Ryan and Jack work together. Georgie shoots a V, who takes a self-destruct pill. But not before spitting at Ryan, "You can't stop us!"

Ryan is revealed to be a Visitor, but Fifth Column. "We're on the same side," he tells Erica. Tyler is impressed by the V's medical technology. He talks to Valerie, a therapist; Anna and Lisa eavesdrop via the jacket cam.

Review: V - A Bright New Day

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 18th 2009 10:29AM
V: A Bright New Day(S01E03) When you're mounting a resistance against an alien presence that way outclasses you in technology, and even outclasses you in propaganda and being good-looking, you're going to need help, and preferably of the "inside" variety. With V scheduled to go on a long hiatus after next week's episode, it's important that the resistance come together by then.

While we made good progress this episode, and learned some more good information, I fear they won't get us to a compelling hook before they go into hibernation for the winter. People will forget about this show if we don't get hooked in good next week. Unless ABC wants to promote its relaunch like another new series, they need to grab us by the jowls and sink their teeth in ... or at least unhinge our jaws and cram a guinea pig of awesome down our gullets.
