Q&A: Behind The Badge With 'Psych' Star Timothy Omundson

February 29th, 2012 11:00am EST
Psych
At the beginning of this season of Psych, I chatted with Maggie Lawson -- now, as the show returns, it's time for her partner Timothy Omundson (also known as the infamous Detective Carlton Lassiter) to have his say.

While I enjoy the talents of every member of Psych's fun and funny cast, I have a certain affection for Omundson, who's made Lassiter my favorite disgruntled detective on television. His deadpan delivery and expressions are always spot-on, and he's a great straight man for the oft-hyper antics required of star James Roday.

What you might not know is that in addition to...

'Psych' Recap: 'Dead Man's Curveball' (6.05)

November 9th, 2011 11:00pm EST
Psych
Psych goes out to the ballgame this week, and treats us to a fantastic time. The only way this episode could get better is if it had come with a box of Cracker Jack.

Minor league manager Mel Hornsby (the always fantastic Danny Glover) comes to Shawn asking him to look into the death of his hitting coach. To do so, Shawn and Gus join the team - even if Gus has to be the mascot. It's clear pretty early on that the victim was drugged, because Shawn makes the mistake of drinking a water bottle in the dead guy's house and likewise gets high on speed. (And James Roday does a pretty good ...

Q&A: 'Psych's' Maggie Lawson Tells All About Juliet!

October 26th, 2011 12:30pm EDT
Psych
USA's Psych is on a roll so far in its sixth season. Before tonight's Halloween-themed episode, I sat down with star Maggie Lawson to ask her what else we can look forward to - and the journey her character, Juliet O'Hara, has taken.

You've wrapped shooting season six - so what are you doing with your downtime?

I'm spending a lot of time with my dog. There's some other work and stuff that's out there; hopefully I'll get to do some stuff. Eventually, I'd like that, but honestly right now I'm just chilling and catching up with my family, my friends and my dog. Life is good.

Q&A: James Roday And Dule Hill 'Psych'-ed For Season 6

James Roday and Dule Hill 'Psych'-ed For Season 6
Are you ready, Psych-O's?! The new season of Psych begins tonight at 10 PM ET/PT on USA - and I'm kicking things off with some help from stars James Roday and Dule Hill!

I hear you have big things planned for your Halloween episode later this month. What can you tell me?

James Roday: Halloween is the vampire episode. And I think it's airing the week of Halloween. [With] Kristy Swanson, the original Buffy, and Corey Feldman, one of the Frog Brothers from The Lost Boys, and Tom Lenk, a regular on Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. We went double Buffy.

'Psych' 5.16 'Yin 3 In 2D' Review

December 23rd, 2010 9:53am EST
Psych
In my years of writing, I've developed a theory when it comes to villains: as long as it takes to develop a good one, it can take no time at all to overuse them. Wisely, Psych has decided to conclude its ongoing Yin/Yang story with this third installment. Yet there's a tall order to fill, considering the two previous episodes have seen both Shawn's mom and his now-girlfriend Juliet in the line of fire. What could top that?

A woman named Allison (Mena Suvari) claims that she was abducted by the mysterious Mr. Yin, bringing back memories for the SBPD crew, and it isn't long before sh...

'Psych' 5.15 'Dead Bear Walking' Review

December 16th, 2010 12:16am EST
Psych-tv-21.jpg
In tonight's second all-new episode of Psych, Lassiter's younger sister Lauren arrives to film a documentary, which makes everything awkward. As if that wasn't strange enough, the first suspect in their new murder case is a polar bear, which soon gets loose. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the case isn't as open and shut as Lassiter would like to make it; unfortunately, the episode itself isn't that good, either.

There are things which just fall flat as soon as they emerge, whether it's Gus's overly aggressive pursuit of Lassiter's younger sister, or some fail...

'Psych' 5.14 'The Polarizing Express' Review

December 16th, 2010 12:11am EST
Psych
Shawn apparently didn't learn anything from his academy crash course last week, because he's gotten the Santa Barbara Police Department in further hot water in Psych's holiday episode. You know what that means - it's the perfect setup for an It's A Wonderful Life scenario that shows Shawn what things would have been like without him (at least how he perceives it), guided by actor Tony Cox (playing himself).

Henry becomes an overweight, pathetic shadow of himself, still pining over Maddie. Gus's new life resembles a bad sitcom (and that's exactly how it's presented). Lassiter is Chief o...

'Psych' 5.13 'We'd Like To Thank The Academy' Review

December 9th, 2010 9:08am EST
Psych
After last week's Twin Peaks tribute, I was ready to get back to regular Psych. The show returns to its standard form with a doozy: Shawn and Gus destroy an SBPD sting operation, and are subsequently banished to the police academy to obtain a professional education.

This puts them at the mercy of Officer Nick Conforth (The Karate Kid's Ralph Macchio), Lassiter's old academy nemesis. It's all fun and games for Shawn and Gus - despite their managing to consistently embarrass themselves - until they motivate Conforth to one-up Lassiter by trying to catch a sought-after robbery suspect....

Grassroots Campaign Wants 'Psych' Stars On 'SNL'

October 27th, 2010 10:35am EDT
Psych
If one show has impassioned, loyal fans to be reckoned with, it's "Psych."

They call themselves "Psych-Os," and in just a couple of weeks, nearly 30,000 of them have united in an online effort to nab leads James Roday and Dulé Hill a dual hosting gig on NBC's long-running, live sketch show.

The grassroots campaign appeared about a week before the official "Psych" Facebook page cracked the 1 million member milestone on October 20. Dubbed "Psych Out SNL," the movement's own Facebook group states that the writers of USA's quirkily funny police procedural have given the undertaking their o...

Corbin Bernsen Embroiled In Bar Fight

Corbin Bernsen
Actor/director Corbin Bernsen and members of his film crew became embroiled in a mass brawl in Ohio last week after a quiet dinner at a local restaurant turned ugly.

The star is currently directing 25 Hill in the state and he went out for a meal with his co-workers last Tuesday at the Upper Deck bar/restaurant in New Franklin.

However, the evening descended into chaos after a local man became flirtatious with a female member of the crew and a fight broke out. Bernsen suffered a grazed knee in the scuffle and co-producer James Greilick was treated for a black eye.

Blunt Parody Trumps Tradition on 'Psych'

July 30th, 2010 10:30am EDT
Dule Hill stars as Gus on USA
What I’ve always loved about Psych is that no one on the show is taking themselves seriously at all. When plugging the latest season on Attack of the Show, Dule Hill (who plays Burton "Gus" Guster on the show, a somewhat sidekick to a fake psychic) referred to episodes as the "Rush Hour episode" or the "Close Encounters episode."

This is a show that fully embraces what it is: one big joke at the expense of everything and anything else. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

Now in their fifth season, Psych hasn’t slowed up or worsened yet. With Shawn (James Roday) and Gus still being Shawn ...

James Roday Talks The Darker Turn 'Psych's' Fourth Season Finale Takes

James Roday Talks The Darker Turn Psychs Fourth Season Finale Ta
"I don't want to pull the rug out from under our fans every week and slap them in the face with stuff, but this was the season finale, and it was the long-awaited return of Mr. Yang. Yeah, we kind of wanted to load in with as much stuff as we could. That's a fun way to end the season, I think," Psych’s James Roday starts when discussing tonight's finale episode, "Mr. Yin." And for Roday, the airing comes with a lot at stake. Not only is he the star of the show but he directed the noir-style episode, an homage to famed (and one of his favorites) director Alfred Hitchcock, as well.

Celebs To Attend Function for Hurricane Relief

On Nov. 11, several Hollywood stars are scheduled to attend a celebrity-studded fundraiser and pre-auction reception for the victims of Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and Rita to benefit Save the Children. Included in the auction is a record-setting $440,000 Porsche driven by Jay Leno and David Donohue.

In Atlanta on September 7, 2005, history was both made and remembered when a Porsche Carrera GT production car, driven by racecar driver David Donohue and "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno, set a series of Grand American speed records at Talladega Superspeedway, where David's father, Mark Don...
