Benjamin Bratt enjoys an eclectic television and film career spanning 35 years. He's rubbed elbows with some of Hollywood's finest talent over that time, including Sylvester Stallone in "Demolition Man," Sandra Bullock in "Miss Congeniality," and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in "Snitch." However, Bratt's most prolific work, and the role he's arguably best known for, came co-starring alongside veteran performer Jerry Orbach on the crime drama "Law & Order."
Throughout its nine seasons on NBC, "Seinfeld" had its share of outrageous storylines, many of which followed the romantic relationships of the core four characters: Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Kramer (Michael Richards), and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). In Season 4 George meets NBC executive Susan Ross (Heidi Swedberg) and the unlikely pair get engaged.
A coming-of-age story that celebrates one of TV's favorite fictional theoretical physicists. That's the basis of "Young Sheldon," the hit spin-off of "The Big Bang Theory." The prequel series begins with a 9-year-old version of Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) entering high school in East Texas. He aces his classes, corrects his teachers, and picks up his first comic book.
Given what an almost universally beloved household name he's become, it is in some ways quite difficult to imagine Tom Hanks as a workaday actor, excited to land even a bit part in "Happy Days." That's actually what happened, though. The story goes like this. It wasn't long after the...
The Netflix series "That '90s Show" reunites cast members from "That '70s Show" with a whole new line-up of young players and moves the action to Point Place, Wisconsin during the George H.W. Bush/Bill Clinton years. For the OG "Show" cast, it's a chance to revisit beloved characters and bask in the series' evergreen popularity. For the new "Show" kids, the Netflix series offers a big career break on an IP with a built-in and devoted fanbase.
While many would agree that the show "Family Guy" is known for its hilarious characters and side-splitting cutaways, there is no denying that the animated series is not afraid to push the limits of comedy. Despite putting out jokes that may potentially rub people the wrong way, the cartoon's creator Seth MacFarlane rarely receives any interference from those above his pay grade.
When it comes to Disney+ original shows, 2022 was a pretty good year, and a big highlight was the second season of "The Mysterious Benedict Society." Sadly, it appears that the streamer is not all that interested in keeping the mystery alive. "The Mysterious Benedict Society" — based on Trenton...
For 11 seasons, Showtime's "Shameless" depicted the dysfunctional American family, the Gallaghers. They were spearheaded by patriarch Frank (William H. Macy), whose drug use and alcoholism often negatively impacted the people he was supposed to care for. As a result, Frank's kids typically had to fend for themselves and figure out how to make it in this crazy world despite growing up in abject poverty. From jumping around different jobs to trying to go to school, the Gallaghers did everything they could think of to escape their precarious circumstances.
"Thunderbolts" continues its self-ascribed mission to become the far and away most eclectically cast film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie brings together several villains and supporting characters from various strange corners of the MCU, and if the comics team the movie is based on is any indication, brings them under government control to tackle missions you wouldn't dare ask the Avengers to accept. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ayo Edebiri is the latest actor to join "Thunderbolts," alongside already-announced cast members Sebastian Stan, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Wyatt Russell, Olga Kurylenko, Hannah John-Kamen, Julia Louis-Dreyfus — and, pretty likely, Harrison Ford as Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross.
It's funny how a person's workstation can become, in a way, like a second home to them. After all, for many people, this is the spot where they usually spend about eight hours a day for five days a week — and it's important that it feels as comfortable as possible. Whether it's a workstation in an office or at home, setting up a desk that helps get a person get through the long hours is imperative to stay sane and level. For Phyllis Smith, who plays Phyllis Vance on NBC's "The Office," these important desk details helped her feel comfortable, and she became very protective of that space.
Netflix is preparing to take off once again with two comedy legends. In 2019, audiences set sail with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston for the mystery thriller "Murder Mystery," a film which saw Sandler and Aniston as married couple Nick and Audrey Spitz, who find themselves tied up in a murder investigation for the death of a billionaire. Made as part of Adam Sandler's four-movie deal with Netflix, the film saw great success during its initial release. Within its first weekend on the streaming service, "Murder Mystery" managed to pull in over 30 million views, making it their most streamed movie of that year (via Variety). And while critics were mixed on the whodunnit — that is to say, the film currently holds a 44% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes – there was no denying that the starring duo were a match made in heaven.
It would seem that being on a show as inclusive and diverse as "Modern Family" would make any actor feel welcome. But for Reid Ewing, who portrayed Dylan Marshall in the series, that wasn't always the case. From 2009 to 2020, "Modern Family" chronicled the hectic lives of three different...
Since its release in 1994, "The Shawshank Redemption" has become one of the most celebrated films of all time. Based on a novella by Stephen King, Frank Darabont's adaptation is also widely regarded as one of the best movies of all time. Critics have praised the prison drama since its initial release, and it's received a number of accolades over the years, including seven Academy Award nominations and entry into the American Film Registry.
The third episode of HBO's "The Last of Us" marks the show's biggest departure from the source material yet. In the game, survivalist Bill (voiced by W. Earl Brown) is one of the more prominent supporting characters, but his relationship with dearly departed Frank has ended well before the player meets him, and it unfolds as a series of angry letters the player discovers before finally stumbling upon Frank's remains.
Contains spoilers for "The Last of Us" Episode 3 – "Long Long Time" We don't want to call it too soon, but HBO's "The Last of Us" may have just reached its pinnacle. The critically-acclaimed show's third episode is not only the best of the series so far — it's arguably also the best bit of standalone television that we've seen to date in 2023. The most impressive thing is that the strength of this episode doesn't come from our leading pair of Joel and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey). Instead, "Long Long Time" plunges viewers into the world of two crucial characters from the game that the TV show's version of Ellie never even gets to meet. In a whopping 75-minute episode, we are finally introduced to Bill and Frank (Nick Offerman and Murray Bartlett), and we spend most of that runtime watching them find second chances in each other in a world gone to hell.
"Gilmore Girls," which was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and ran from 2000 to 2007, focuses on the mother-daughter relationship between Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), which is one of best friends as well as that of a parent-child. While the story centers on Lorelai and Rory, "Gilmore Girls" — and its small-town setting of Stars Hollow (which had some real-life inspiration behind it) — is also full of memorable supporting characters. There's Lorelai's parents, Emily (Kelly Bishop) and Richard Gilmore (Edward Herrmann), with whom Lorelai has a contentious relationship. There's Rory's best friend, Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), who feels the need to hide her passion for music from her strict mother, Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda). Then there's Luke Danes (Scott Patterson), the local diner owner and Lorelai's love interest.
New York City assistant district attorney Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) is the only woman among her direct family members who all serve in law enforcement on the popular CBS procedural "Blue Bloods." Fortunately, she has Jamie's wife Edit "Eddie" Janko (Vanessa Ray) to bring a bit more feminine energy to the "Blue Bloods" family dinner table, despite her masculine nickname — especially after the show cruelly and unexpectedly killed off Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) wife Linda (Amy Carlson) in Season 8.
In the years since it arrived on CBS, "Blue Bloods" has become known for many things. For one, it's another in a long line of police procedures that tackle some pretty heavy topics at times, even those that have real-world ties. It's also recognized for putting a rather unique familial edge on its story by centering the series on the Reagans, a family that includes several members of New York's law enforcement. The program is also regarded as one of the most high-profile projects on the lengthy entertainment résumé of television icon Tom Selleck.
