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.

Josh GadA Broadway star is paying a visit to the Dunphys on 'Modern Family' this season.

'Book of Mormon' Tony nominee Josh Gad has been cast as a neighbor of the Dunphys who worships Phil, Entertainment Weekly reports. Interesting choice.

Gad and Ty Burrell co-starred together on the short-lived sitcom 'Back to You' a few years ago. Gad's 'Modern Family' episode will air at some point in the fall.

5 DC Comics Characters That Could Be Awesome on the Small Screen

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 30th 2011 3:30PM
DeadmanLate last week, Deadline broke the news that Eric Kripke, creator of 'Supernatural,' was developing a small-screen adaptation of the comic book 'Deadman' for The CW, presumably to fill the Superman-sized gap left by 'Smallville' after the show wrapped its 10th and final season this May.

Over the course of the last decade, many successors to 'Smallville' have been mooted for the network (and its predecessor, The WB), from a rumored "young Batman" series to a failed 'Aquaman' pilot, the short-lived 'Birds of Prey' series and the more recent 'Raven,' which has seemingly stalled in development hell. Another iconic DC property, 'Wonder Woman,' just crashed and burned at NBC after the cheesetastic pilot stripped everything likable from the character, which further illustrates that name-recognition alone is not enough to sustain a show.

On the surface, 'Deadman' seems like a curious choice for a standalone series -- the character is little-known outside fan circles, and the storyline (murdered circus performer possesses others' bodies to bring his killers to justice, while helping those he inhabits to solve problems in their own lives) has already drawn inevitable comparisons to 'Quantum Leap'.

But a lack of brand awareness can sometimes be a blessing instead of a curse, allowing producers to forge their own path in shaping a character, rather than being married to fans' expectations as 'Smallville' was. In my mind, there are numerous other DC properties perfectly suited for a CW adaptation -- read on for my top five suggestions.

'Supernatural' Star Misha Collins on Castiel, Divinity and Wanting to Do Comedy

by Maureen Ryan, posted Aug 5th 2011 1:30PM

At week or two ago at Comic-Con, I spoke to 'Supernatural' star Misha Collins (that video interview is here, and all our coverage of the show is here). But Collins was the sole representative of the CW show at a Television Critics Association party on Wednesday, so I thought I'd grill him a bit more on where things stand for Castiel and what the actor wants to do now that he's not a series regular on the show.

At the end of season 6, when Cas became "this omnipotent megalomaniacal character, it does sort of wash away the old, naïve, dorky Cas that we've all come to love," Collins said. "And I have a fondness in my heart for that character and miss him and hope to see him again."

Before we get to the rest of the interview, here's a bit of good news: 'Supernatural' is among the shows that has had its episode order bumped up. Season 7 of the show will feature 23 episodes instead of the usual 22. (Other CW news from TCA press tour is here.)

TCA Report: CW Exec on the Future of 'One Tree Hill,' 'Supernatural' & Superhero Shows

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 4th 2011 2:30PM
SupernaturalNew CW president Mark Pedowitz came to the network's executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday morning in good spirits. Bringing three new scripted shows and the promise of three new reality offerings, The CW seems optimistic that this season will be their strongest yet.

Pedowitz was on hand to assuage the fears of 'Supernatural' fans, revealing that, despite internet rumblings and rumors, the network has "no plans" for Season 7 to be the last year of the spooky drama series, revealing that he and the rest of the network's brass hope the series "keeps on going" and that they'll be examining the show's future on a season-by-season basis, depending on how the ratings hold up.

CW Orders More 'Supernatural,' 'Nikita,' 'Gossip Girl' & '90210,' 'Glee' Casting and More TV News

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 3rd 2011 6:00PM
SupernaturalHaters of reruns take note! The CW has heard your cries of displeasure and has handed out additional episode orders to some of its most popular shows.

According to Entertainment Weekly, '90210' and 'Gossip Girl' have received two additional episodes each, putting their season totals at 24 episodes. 'Supernatural' and 'Nikita' got one additional episode, giving them 23 episodes each.

Sadly, 'The Vampire Diaries' did not received a beefed up season order, but that's to be expected considering the extra post-production work the show's considerable effects require.

'Supernatural' Fans & Star Misha Collins Bring ''Hope To Haiti'' Through Voluntary Trip

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 16th 2011 10:30AM
There has always been a stigma attached to the word "fan." Thanks to Hollywood, it conjures up images of pale, socially awkward young men who occupy their parents' basements and spend their time playing Dungeons and Dragons or debating the minutiae of 'Star Trek' episodes on the internet (both of which are totally valid lifestyle choices, by the way).

In reality, everyone is a fan of something. Even if you don't frequent online message boards to dissect the shocking twist at the end of last week's 'Vampire Diaries,' or dress up like a warrior princess for a weekend in the woods with your buddies, find me a person who doesn't obsess over sports or fashion or cars or another vice of choice.

The Random Acts team in Haiti

Being a "fan" is a badge of honor you should wear with pride, something that binds you to a much wider community of equally passionate, equally inspiring people. The abstract concept of "fandom" illustrates that, even in an age where some argue we're more disconnected than ever -- conducting our friendships through the sphere of social networking and the magic of electronic devices -- we're still part of something larger than ourselves.

Occasionally, that community of like-minded geniuses can band together to change the world, or at least change a life or two, as was the case with Random Acts' "Hope to Haiti" trip.

We also want to exclusively share with you this image of one of the hot items at the annual pop-culture festival. What you see here is one of 10 different bags that Warner Bros. will be rolling out at Comic-Con -- or the only bag that matters, if you're a fan of a couple of demon-hunting brothers.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Supernatural' Star Misha Collins Talks Castiel's Role in Season 7

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 6th 2011 1:30PM
Misha CollinsThe CW's 'Supernatural' has spent six years defying audience expectations and gleefully leaving us on the edge of our seats with every season finale, but last season's climactic close proved to be one of the most shocking yet.

Fan-favorite character Castiel (Misha Collins) pulled a dirty double cross in the last few episodes, revealing an unholy alliance with the demon Crowley for dominion over purgatory ... and let's just say that the finale didn't leave Cas and the Winchesters on the best of terms.

I recently had the privilege of traveling to Haiti with Collins and his charity, Random Acts, for a life-changing voluntary excursion (we'll have an in-depth feature on the trip next week), but during our wide-ranging interview, I couldn't resist slipping in a couple of questions about his status next season, and his response to the outpouring of fan support for his character.

There's not much new information here, but proceed with caution, there are mild spoilers ahead.

Review: 'True Blood' Is Back, With Yet More Vampires, Witches and Melodrama

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 24th 2011 3:00PM
Oh, 'True Blood.' What am I going to do with you?

Just like one of the characters on the show, 'True Blood' (9PM ET Sunday, HBO) goes through a transformation in the first couple of episodes of its fourth season. Creator and head writer Alan Ball appears to have remembered that his characters -- humans, shapeshifters, vampires, faeries and the like -- are living beings with actual emotions and not just objects for him to Bedazzle with ever-thicker encrustations of incidents, events and OMG moments.

It's a refreshing and surprising change of pace. But then in the third episode, the show starts to show signs of falling into ruts it has frequently and heedlessly dived into before.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Supernatural' Fan Fills in the Missing Year With New Book

by Allison Waldman, posted May 24th 2011 3:00PM
If you're like most fans of 'Supernatural,' you want more than what you've seen on screen or devoured in Mo Ryan's recaps. More Sam and Dean Winchester! More things that go bump in the night! More monsters and hunting and ... well, 'Supernatural.'

Here's your chance to fill that void. With the approval of creator Eric Kripke, author Rebecca Dessertine has written a new novel that's an exciting original story about Sam and Dean, but also provides a valuable service.

'Supernatural: One Year Gone' fills in the gaps in the TV show's timeline by telling us what we missed in that year-ahead jump from Season 5 to Season 6. Having been privy to an advanced copy of the book -- and as you'll see in our exclusive excerpt after the jump -- it's a must-read for true 'Supernatural' fans.

AOL TV talked to Rebecca Dessertine (fun fact: she's actually Kripke's assistant by day) about her experience writing the novel, which is arriving in stores today (May 24). Keep reading for more details ...
